about

This is my favourite of the various compilations released on PseudoArcana. I was blown away by the quality of tracks sent in by the contributors and if anything find this an even more rewarding listen today than I did then.

Taken inexplicably by a perverse whim I decided to send a curve ball invitation to the creme of the NZ electric music underground to see how they would respond. Near everyone involved caught the ball, polished it like a demon and sent back a jewel, others simply fudged the brief and sent back a sterling pseudo-acoustic track rather than the real thing. I wasn't about to complain..

Really this should have been the first PseudoArcana CD proper, but being unsure how to proceed with organising that (and having -as many of us did- an unfortunate faith in the CDR as a format) released it on CDR.

It sold plenty of copies and garnered great reviews but many people missed out on hearing what is a true classic.
