can vouch for the 2nd press clear vinyl that it's quiet as a cup. definitely recommend picking this up.

however, listening to Geocentric just makes me question why Readymade Boomerang didn't get a stand-alone reissue. those tracks stand out in their detailed soundstage on this release and really deserved to be given their due on a separate album.

Important Records will be releasing this on vinyl soon. Their IG showed a test pressing earlier this week.

It just seems very stupid to keep this record out of reach. Same case with Jean Eustache on cinema. What´s wrong with it? I don´t fucking want to know.

It's very rare I hear an album only 5-10 times and declare it a 5-star album. Actually, I don't think I have ever done that. Usually it takes many years, even decades for an album to worm its way into my consciousness enough for me to rate it that highly. But I just did it with this. Recorded in 1989 in an empty water cistern, 14 feet underground, all of the music on this album is acoustic, using accordian, trombone, voice, conch shell, didjeridu, garden hose and assorted pieces of metal. This is among the very best true ambient music I have ever heard, on par with Eno's early ambient series. Equally beautiful and mysterious, it exemplifies the true meaning of the word "sublime" in much the same way some of those early Tangerine Dream albums do. It is magnificent.

I cannot understand how it is possible that this wonderful masterpiece has not yet been reissued on Vinyl. One of the best works of the twentieth century

Recorded 14 feet below the ground in a 186 foot diameter cistern that once held 2 million gallons of water. No echoes, but long smooth reverbs of 45 seconds. Drone perfection.
