Note : Recordings made during the summer of 1985.
From the traditional Nubian sounds of Southern Egypt to the cultured Arabic pop of Beirut, its all here in super-sonic collage: Cairo Orchestral/Greek Sartaki/Palestinian Folk/ Jewish and Euro-hybrid music styles/ Jordanian reverb guitar....all placed deep within the mirage of an 18 year-old time capsule of news, commercials, radio plays, UFO signals, Secret agent messages and chainsaw shortwave! Recorded in the summer of 1985 from Aswan to Jerusalem, this is a cerebral-smashing 65-minute listening experience soaked in raw beauty. If you don't like gettin' your ears pierced, then Clear the path NOW....the Radio Collage Revolution has been unleashed!
