An Ambivalent Scale Production

A deluxe edition of 25 numbered copies in a handmade gatefold sleeve with numbered insert.

"Dissonance" was released as a micro-edition ASR 001 in the UK in 1979. The very first edition cassette release was credited to Migraine Inducers, who were listed as Martyn Bates (Instrumental Ambivalence) & Ann Biguous (Grundig & Random Noises) Migraine Inducers - Dissonance / Antagonistic Music.

The more definitive American version was released as cassette ASR 009 in the US in 1981, dropping the Migraine Inducers moniker and the "Antagonistic Music" title extension. It was now referred to as Martyn Bates' "Dissonance" and released in an edition of 100 cassette copies and became known as "Dissonance Americas" Martyn Bates - Dissonance (Americas Version).

Record one also includes the remix versions of 1994/5. Migraine Inducers - Dissonance: Antagonistic Music (1995 Remix).

Note: "UK Dissonance" track listing appears in order as it is printed on inner sleeve. Record labels are white with no specific details re: A and B side's track titles.
