DOME 1, 2, 3, 4

after Wire broke up in 1980, Bruce Gilbert and Graham Lewis switched from the style of those legendary minimalist punk records to woking on many much more free form projects, the main one being DOME. industrial experiments, ambient scapes, rhythmic noodling, poetic sound works-in-progress, half songs, and occasional pop epiphanies, these 4 volumes are documents of the uninhibited play of minds filled with ideas at a time when borders and names were not important, and in fact didn't really exist. the music is not this, not that, but predominantly very listenable and enjoyable, containing more than a few not replicable brilliant moments.

I was actually commenting here in hopes that one of you cool-cats would help me find Oren Ambarchi's "In the Pendulum's Emnbrace"
We can discuss trade if you'd like...
Or, if you'd jus tlike to point me in the direction of al ink...or a SLSK name, or...

Please?
Thank you?

I wish I could help you out with some Peanut Butter Wolf, but, alas, I have none.
If you can think of soething else you'd like...something more in teh vein of Ambarchi and his mates...just let me know. That forum has already been quite valuable.

Thank you again, Zhao.
