the dark moon (1986)

After THE ROPE, I planned the next Black Tape For A Blue Girl release as a vinyl EP called THE DARK MOON (sometimes called THE DARK MONTHS). These late 1986 mixes were digitized from cassette to give you a flashback to that moment, 35 years ago. At this point I'd recorded with Sue (in my college's audio lab) and also Walter’s guitars at his home studio. I would record with Oscar the next time I went home to Florida. You’ll recognize these early mixes of pieces from 1987’s MESMERIZED BY THE SIRENS; I hear that a few of my synth performances are different, early versions. “Our flesh as one” evolved into “Seireenien Lumoama.” [ The "b." on the cover is because it was dubbed on the b-side of the cassette. ]
