V/A - First - CD - 11 Tracks - Operative Records - 2001
This debut compilation from Operative Records is presented in a simple no-frills packaging that
lets the music stand for itself. The eleven tracks offer an insight of the richness and the diversity
of the current London scene. Under the patronage of John Murphy, present with his two projects
Knifeladder and Shining Vril, it regroups an eclectic selection of new talented projects such as
Antichild League, Leisurehive, Muffpunch and Naevus. The music is very varied, ranging from
dark-ambient to ritual industrial, from power electronics to urban folk. A compilation in the form of
a manifesto that will definitely interest those who like to discover new talent.
