1. Product Details

Dark Entries and Emotional Response team up to further explore Psychic TVs Acid House years. Psychic TV was formed by Genesis P-Orridge and Peter Christopherson of Throbbing Gristle with Alex Fergusson of Alternative TV in 1981. After various line up changes the band shifted direction to dance oriented songs influenced by the House and Techno scenes of Detroit and Chicago. By 1988 the group included Dave Ball of Soft Cell Fred Giannelli of Turning Shrines and Matthew Best of Carcrash International. During the summer of 1988 the group recorded a batch of songs at Time Square Studios in London that would appear under the guise of various artists compilations Jack The Tab and Tekno Acid Beat. The idea behind these compilations of imaginary artists was creating a sense that a healthy acid house scene existed in the UK. Virginia was the studio project of Dave Mista Luv Ball and then-wife Virginia Gini Ball a classical violinist who toured and recorded with Siouxsie and the Banshees and Marc Almond. The duo had previous collaborated on Daves solo album In Strict Tempo in 1983 and with the group Other People in 1984. The name Blue Pyramid was inspired by a photograph from Pink Floyds album Dark Side of The Moon. Also at the time Dave was taking quite a lot of acid and came across some stuff ironically called Blue Pyramid. Ginis violin has an arabic feel adding to the already bright and hypnotic dance rhythms. For this reissue weve backed the A-side with a remix from Bucharest DJ and producer duo Khidja who add more acoustic instrumentation for a world-beat psych-out. On the flip is San Francisco analog wizard Bzier who ups the tempo for some late-night peak NRG. The final remix comes from San Francisco producer and engineer Mark Pistel of Consolidated Hercules & Love Affair and Meat Beat Manifesto who offers a slice of non-stop ecstatic dancing. All songs have been mastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The 12 is housed in a trippy majorelle blue and purple die-cut sleeve with classic yellow Psychic TV skull label all designed by Eloise Leigh. Each copy also includes a 2-sided 6x6 square insert with a photograph by Fred Giannelli of the Emax disc for Blue Pyramid and liner notes by Dave and Gini Ball. STREET DATE - 11/06/2017
