Human Trapped Rhythms
I was going through an old file box today - searching for something, but I forget what as I got distracted. I came across some old letters and flyers from Pete. Pete (Surname escapes me) used to run the Slip Records label in the mid 1980's. Slip Records released material by two bands; Human Trapped Rhythms and Blow By Blow, both bands were just Pete. At a time when all sorts of labels are digging up peoples archives desperate to release that 1980's industrial / electronic sound it is a pity that Human Trapped Rhythms have been (so far) passed by. Yo! Frank of Vinyl On Demand...take note.
Human Trapped Rhythms were very synth orientated a la We Be Echo & Konstruktivists, their album was great. A quick internet search finds no information whatsoever!
I met Pete a few times whilst I was living in Manchester. I went for a drink round his house at Christmas time in 1986. Port and crackers and the sound of "Hoisting the Black Flag" and Bourbonese Qualk. Lovely stuff. We shared acquaintances in the NW Hunt Sabs crowd - and then he was gone. Whatever happened to Pete, Slip Records and Human Trapped Rhythms? If you know - please let me know and if you have a spare copy of the Human Trapped Rhythms LP please get in touch.
