Info

1st – 18th is a cassette release recorded on a two-track Grundig reel-to-reel tape recorder during Martin Hall’s high school days. Drums were recorded during Ballet Mécanique rehearsals. The tape was released in 40 copies that could be purchased in two shops at Copenhagen, Gry and Haase. The tape was Hall’s first solo release.

Apart from his Dialogue colleague Per Hendrichsen (who plays the second synthesizer on “Toys”) Martin Hall plays all instruments. The opening track, however, consists entirely of sounds from the environment – from machines such as hair dryers and refrigerators.
