Harsh power electronic violence.

Notes by Martin Bladh on the cover booklet :
While I was working on the swedish translation of peter's excellent book selfish, little: the annotated lesley ann downey, i found that i couldn't get enough of this unsafe, highly personal world, and got the ugly idea to make my own piece based upon it.
Since i love the buyer's marked material i asked peter for the permission to do a recording centered on his private universe.
He agreed and sent me a load of sound and video clips, which he'd collected and put into context.
I guess it's fair to call this album a conceptual piece, but i want to point out that it is foremost my own personal take on Peter's work and he should not be held responsible for anything i've done.
Big thanks to Peter who made this recording possible.
