ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
+1 is a wholly owned subsidiary of Polyethylene Pet, a division of Kimara Sajn, a composer/conceptual artist living in the Pacific Northwest.

Known for their unique brand of abstract but strangely accessible rock music, they've been releasing albums since the late 70s. Members have included Chris Diurni, B.Sue Johnson, Ed Dickie, Peter White, Joe Palermo and Van Spragins. They mix popular rock music forms with jazz, contemporary classical, tape composition and electronics to create a blend which is deeply musical, personal and surreal with just a hint of irony.

The albums they produce are highly unpredictable from one to the next.

"Perspective" is their classic double album - an exciting stew full of pop, buzz, joy and sadness. Another spin of the twisted radio dial that is +1. Once again, we find ourselves in a subversive pop landscape where commerce and commentary collide.

Originally released on cassette in 1989, it's now available on CD with all of it's intentional lo-fi charm intact.

Ain't it funky now? Dance until your feet are bloody stumps!

(Commentary by Andre Breton)
