A compilation cassette recordings by Smersh, tne duo of Mike Mangino and Chris Shepard, who began making music in the late 70s. Everything they needed was in Piscataway NJ: a basement full of analog gear, a Roland TR-606, a SH-09 (Cabaret Voltaire’s favorite synth), and a TB-303 (the sound of acid house). Most Monday nights, they would write a new song from scratch. A couple hours later, the song was recorded, never to be performed again. By 1981, this dedication to spontaneous creativity had already produced countless recordings, and the duo began releasing cassettes as Smersh via their own Atlas King label. A definitive Smersh discography may not even be possible, but one lists more than 30 Atlas King cassettes. Spanning a ten year period, 1983-1993, this the first time all but one of these songs are appearing on vinyl.
