Topology of a Phantom City was a cassette originally released in 1996 on Bruce Russell’s glorious Corpus Hermeticum label and this reissue captures the spirit of the original version by…well…by also being on cassette.
For these recordings, the core members of AHOD, guitarist Bruce Russell (The Dead C) and violinist Alastair Galbraith are joined by Peter Stapleton (Terminals, Pin Group, Scorched Earth Policy) on percussion and synthesizers. Both sides are sprawling paean’s to the glories of improvised invention, going through waves of menacing intensity and freeform scrawl.
