TEXT ONE from Banned Production (run by composer AMK) was released in 1989 as a cassette showcase for artists whose primary concern was language (found,  self-produced,  manipulated, edited,  collaged,  etc.).  Gregory Whitehead and blackhumour provided audio and texts,  while I designed the package and created the illustration.  All work here may seem primitive by today's dazzling technical standards,  but its rawness and immediacy make it all the more interesting.  In a world filled with the banality of Facebook and Twitter,  this seems like the "real" thing.  Long live cassettes and xerox!
