“The suitably pure white album design, with a selection of black/white/grey photographs of the group, lend weight to the idea of the album as a once lost relic – the great manifesto of a mythical musical organism – now recovered for new generations to appreciate.”
Joseph Cummings, Music Trust of Australia.
Splitrec was founded in 1987 by Mind Body Split to release the LP – If it’s not on it’s not on. Throughout the 1990s they released works by the group Machine for Making Sense and some of the individuals in that group, Amanda Stewart and Jim Denley. The label documents experimental and improvised music from Sydney with major works during the 2000s from SSL, Peter Blamey, Germ Studies, Great Waitress and West Head Project.
This year Splitrec was honoured to release a legendary recording Teletopa Tokyo 1972. The tapes sat in boxes for 42 years. The Triple LP or Double CD features two 50min improvisations from a radio session at NHK studios Tokyo. The group was David Ahern, Roger Frampton, Peter Evans and Geoffrey Collins and they were completing a 1972 world tour.
