Kwerr Key....

unfortunately, i don't know a thing about teledu or if there were other releases (though there must have been). this cassette came with a very high end j-card, almost 3d, and a pretty solid dub. it took me far too long to warm up to this release as i should have, but i think i was looking for specific things when i first got this tape in the 90's. this is not noise...though it contains elements of it and several other genres as well. in fact, this is some incredibly weird stuff...in a good way. make no mistake, these are songs. the lyrics are compelling, the vocals are interesting, the music itself takes you all over the place but its a journey worth taking if you're in a mood for such a sort of odd, sort of mellow, hugely strange, artfest.
