Remastered reissue. Previously unreleased material recorded between 1978 and 1983 at the Chen Yi commune in England. The sound of Chen Yi is rough and brutal... electronic music, soundcollages that reminds of Throbbing Gristle or (early) SPK as well as electro-pop-tracks and songs like early Cabaret Voltaire, Chris & Cosey, Severed Heads... The Chen Yi commune was founded in 1978 by about 20 women and men from London. The aim of the commune was to create a closed subsystem, a kind of subsociety and to narrow down its contact to the outside world only on very few specific actions. The Chen Yi commune never was interested in producing records, some of the members even refused any form of release whatsoever. In 1981 one member released a tape edition called 'Hanging'. The title referred to the first 3 English witches who were hanged in Chelmsford, where the commune house was located. This cassette was sent to various record companies. John Peel saw a potential in Chen Yi which led to a recording contract in 1982/83 with CBS. About 7 tracks were produced for the first Chen Yi LP. More couldn't be finalised, because CBS suddenly pulled out of the contract. The material on this LP contains completely finished song-material as well as rough session-recordings using early electronic studio equipment.
