Following the release of lo-fi electronic masterpiece 'I Don't Remember Now'/'I Don't Want To Talk About It' and his brilliant follow-up 'Plaster Falling', Cincinnati-based artist John Bender began assembling his third and last album, 'Pop Surgery', in late 1982. While all of Bender's work draws from intimate home recordings -featuring the artist alone with various keyboards, analogue sequencers and tape delays- 'Pop Surgery' remains the one that perhaps best distills his arrant deconstruction of the "pop" concept. These twelve frenetic tracks, meticulously stitched together with dubbed-out vocals and disjointed drum machines, stretch the boundaries of bedroom electronics. Bender would forgo the handmade LP sleeves typical of his Record Sluts imprint. This first-time standalone reissue is recommended for fans of Suicide, TG's '20 Jazz Funk Greats' and early Cabaret Voltaire. Liner notes by John Bender.

BENDER, JOHN - PLASTER FALLING

A vinyl-reissue of John Bender's 1981 release 'Plaster Falling'. Veering towards skeletal urgency, these recordings set bright analogue melodies against half-whispered vocals and expand Bender's electronic cryptography thru a series of lone signifiers.
