If I'm not mistaken this is the first US release I put on my blog, but it's a great release. The masters are gone, and therefore was never released on CD. XX Committee (pronounce as Twenty Committee) was Chris Scarpino on synth and guitar and Scott Foust on guitar, bass and rhythms. "The LP suffered a bit from a sort of dead mix when we went from our 4 track to reel-to-reel in the studio (courtesy of an engineer who would later have a couple singer/songwriter releases on a big independent label). That may some day be rectified. Chris and I used to let the rhythm tracks run for hours through an Earth cabinet in my parent' basement (pity them), refining the sound. I think the constant desire for more austerity was a huge buren on both of us. Chris became more and more disillusioned with music as time went on. He is now an engineer at MIT" (quote from Scott Foust - The Fighting Sensualist 1981-2001, cassette). Foust himself went on to play in Tart, Y Front, Braces, Anschluss, The New Peculiars and Idea Fire Company and is the best dressed drinker/smoker I know. And oh Massmirror doesn't work today so only on rapidshare. When Massmirror is back up up I'll put it on there. But perhaps for the next days on only rapidshare.
update: 17/7/2008: I have removed the link for XX Committee's 'Network' release. There is a CD version now available from Impulsy Stetoskopu. Send them an e-mail to get one:
