ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
DANGEROUS GAMES REDUX
‘Dangerous Games’ was first published to vinyl in 1983. Most of it was recorded while I was working and recording with Cyndi Lauper for the She’s So Unusual’ LP which also appeared in 83 with much greater impact than my little record. The synthesizers I used on her record are the same machines I used on ‘Dangerous Games’. Lauper’s producers hated the sound of the TR808 so I was not ‘allowed’ to use it on ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’ et al. Ironically on a ‘Girl’s Just Wanna Have Fun’ special 10 year anniversary reissue ‘they’ flew in some 808 loops! Ha. That'll learn 'em.
Some of the material on this record dates back to the 70’s and the band I had at the time called DUNE. So ‘Dangerous Games’ is a kind of looking backward while wondering about the future kind of a thing. Dune-muzik faded to black around 1980 after banging away from its start in 1976.
After Dune, or Dune-muzik as it was also known, dissolved, I was not really sure if I wanted to do ‘this ‘ anymore. I moved to California for awhile and was looking into other things but a family crisis brought me back to New York and while in New York I was asked to play on this Lauper record… so while mucking around with that I began scratching out a few Ideas, just looking for some perspective. In the end I wound up putting together ‘Dangerous Games’.
For some reason it become a bit of a collectible fetching as high as $1000 at one point on eBay. I was amazed myself. Since then it seems to fetch about $200 or so. Some folks through the years have asked me for copies and I send them mp3’s of the tunes so instead of doing that we thought we would release the Redux version. Here is as a digital download just for you.

The Redux has a newer and better cover. This one is very very simple and it is not a metaphor at all. It is hard to mistake this cover's meaning. Remember the Beatles had a cover that confused people once too… I guess I am in good company.

The Songs on the Redux version are these:
1.Bensonhurst
2.Dangerous Games
3.Oh! It’s A Pop Song
4.Touch Touch Touch
5.Byte It
6.Modern Science
7.Television Generation
8.Pulse Play N0. 02

This record is dedicated to the memory of Frankie Black, Duke, Carita Ridgway, Karoline Zollo, Pete Steele and all the victims of social injustice and violence. RIP. Watch out for False Flag.
