Screw Machine - Early Works Of Skott Rusch 1981-1982 3xcassette boxset

by Screw Machine


GR279: Screw Machine was the short lived and little-known first project by Skott Rusch, founding member of Port Huron, MI
industrial pioneers Hunting Lodge. Three tapes were recorded and distributed very briefly locally and through the mail,
sent to popular industrial artists at the time.
In early 1982, Lon Diehl, another local musician interested in challenging and innovative music,
heard the tapes, and soon after Hunting Lodge was formed. In the same instance, Screw Machine was terminated.
The cassettes - "Mental Block", "Working With Flesh & Metal", and "Tattooed Fetus" were forgotten as well.
30+ years later, i'm proud to present, in newly remastered form, 3 cassettes of some of the earliest murky, organic, minimal noise recorded
in Michigan. Packaged with two booklets featuring original art, liner notes, and more. Quite graphic imagery
inspired by SPK, etc.
The historic significance of these tapes cannot be overstated - these recordings helped
directly lead to the formation of Hunting Lodge.
All tapes recorded 1:1 in real time. Xerox art and booklets, labeled tapes.
