Wyndham Rain Dear God, where was I when this first came out as a cassette tape in 1989? I mean, if I had been anywhere near this, I could have entered Nirvana without passing Go. Could have avoided wasting all that time sitting on my black pillow trying to be focused, still and silent. Dear God, send me back to 1989 and let an angel in the guise of one of my friends turn me on to this: "Hey, man. Take a hit of this, man. It'll freak you f__ing out, man." --- (I'll be a better person for it, God. I promise.) Favorite track: Side A.

A Thin Drone Silence was released on Cassette in 1989 on the Poison Plant Music label. It has been reissued here for the first time on CD and digital download as No. 1 in a series of reissues that will cover all of my 1980s cassette recordings.

NOTE - These recordings were transferred from the original analog masters to preserve the original sound and sequencing as sides A and B. Distortion, crackling, hiss and other sonic issues inherent to the medium may be heard.

music and noise.
