RECORD STORE DAY DROPS RELEASE
TWISTED NERVE were Scotland's answer to Siouxsie & The Banshees, Killing Joke, and Bauhaus. Between 1979 and 1984 they played shows with groups like UK Subs, Virgin Prunes and Alien Sex Fiend and then disappeared for over 30 years. Their one mini-album (Séance) and their handful of singles have since become highly sought after collectibles by fans of classic punk, goth, and post-punk and have been featured on compilations like Killed By Deathrock. Now, after 35 years, all the Twisted Nerve recordings and a couple bonus tracks are available as two very limited edition, hand-numbered, color vinyl LPs. Séance - Archive Vol 1 (Cyan Blue inside Ultra Clear vinyl) and Never Say Goodbye - Archive Vol 2 (Black inside Blood Red vinyl) are both limited editions of only 350 copiesoneering the use of sound samplers, multi-cultural collage and electronic noise. They became a shape shifting chameleon lightening the darkness of post-industrial music, combining extremist performance art and video displays with apocalyptic beat music. Nocturnal Emissions have since been credited as a catalyst for a generation or two of sound workers. However, at the height of their success, the Emissions decided to shun the crass commercialism that had developed around them, and to develop their work as a secret alchemy. Nigel Ayers has continued to work with a strong underground of cult support, avoiding music industry fashions, and following his own creative path he concentrated on creating a strong sense of a wilderness identity through sound.
