Mystic Institute was Paul Kent from Cornwall who hired Mark Pritchard's studio to do an EP. They made A1 & A2 (the track names are a combination of Pritchard's and Kent's postcodes: PL25 5SN and TA18 7AQ) and, since Mark basically wrote the tracks, they were credited as "Reload Remixes" and later appeared on the Reload "Amenity EP" credited only to Reload.
The third track started as a track by Pritchard and Kent. Mark invited Tom Middleton to the studio, who wrote a melody so strong that Mark scrapped his and Kent's initial work and built a new song around that melody, "Ob-Selon Mi-Nos (Repainted by Global Communication)", which was re-released as "14:31" on the Global Communication "76:14" album. The original version of "Ob-Selon Mi-Nos" was never released and, although tracks A1 and A2 are referred to as "Reload Remixes" of QA-752L-P and NS-581A-T, non-remixed versions of those tracks never existed.

only 800 pressed, but many believe because of the different colour sleeves, there were a number of re-presses, which is not strictly true, the sleeves were stickered and there is a black sleeve, a blue sleeve and a white sleeve. Because of a small run of 800, the distributors probaly ran out of white sleeves and therefore used some blue and black sleeves that were probaly laying about the warehouse, to keeps costs down.
There was one re-press of about 400-500 about a year after the initial release, with a plain sleeve - and of which some were miss-pressed. A totally different label was accidently used - only similarity was that the CAT number was the same which is why the mistake was made, about 100 copies were miss-pressed. I will be adding a photo shortly of my white stickered sleeve.
The classic ambient track ob-selon mi-nos also sounds just as good, if not better at 45rpm, although it is meant to played at 33rpm. Anyone else agree with me on this?. This track also apears on the 76.14 album. And the other two tracks on the a side also apear on the ev00rps. So it is possible to own all the tracks without paying out shit loads of cash for the original. You can score a copy of 76.14 for about £15 and a copy of EV006rps for about £15, try e-bay. Going down this road also means as a bonus, you get the best track from ev005 - amenity + and all the other amazing stuff from 76.14
I do know of a collector who has 3 copies of ev006 - each sleeve a different colour, he was under the impression that they were different pressings untill I put him straight!!!!!!!!
The quality of the pressings on the first 6 releases were not very good quality. Also the release ev00rps has been bootlegged in Germany.
Sorry to sound like a trainspotter, but I frequently get asked this question.
