Release Date:12/16/2016;Notes:Limited translucent blue vinyl LP pressing. Plaster Falling was recorded at the same time as John Bender's first album, I Don't Remember Now/I Don't Want To Talk About It. Released in 1981 on the artist's own Record Sluts label, copies of Plaster Falling's initial pressing came hermetically sealed in plaster (and later latex). Thus, listeners had to literally break open the record to find what's hidden inside. Produced in relative isolation, Plaster Falling is a beacon of brilliance in the nascent minimal-wave sphere. Veering towards skeletal urgency, these recordings set bright analogue melodies against half-whispered vocals and expand Bender's electronic cryptography thru a series of lone signifiers: "Station," "Plaster," "Women," etc. As Bender explains in the liner notes, "I began to distance myself from the present and describe scenes as if in a movie - seeking concrete, terse, juxtaposed imagery." This first-time standalone reissue is recommended for fans of Gareth Williams and Mary Currie's Flaming Tunes, Minimal Man and Grouper.;Track List:1. 43B6 Station;2. 42B4 Plaster;3. 39A4 Women;4. 45A2 People;5. 39A5 Something;6. 35B5 Records;7. 34B1 Knuckles;8. 38A1 Cities;9. 45A1 Street
