S/Z - s/t 12"


One and only release of this obscure band from the UK. 9 short tracks of experimental tunes not unlike early Cabaret Voltaire. Members were Mohamed, Paul Belford and Susan McCoubrie.
S/Z also appeared on the 'Meridians 1' and 'Ritual: Magnetic North' comp. tapes on Touch.
So if you enjoy early Cabaret Voltaire, you'll for sure like this one.

This is good.

I like how they just photocopied the cover text of "S/Z" (by Barthes) for their album cover...

Sorry don't have the tapes. Would like to hear them too.
Aaron, thanks for enlightening me on Barthes and the meaning behind "S/Z". Found it on wikipedia.

Very cool band (what a name!), reminding, in my fucking opinion, Groovy records' Free Agents. Curious Guy - you are the best!
