Instant Automatons were leading figures in the largely cassette-based U.K. Bad Music scene (a British DIY movement whose adherents made their music available on cassette, for free) of the late '70s. Between 1977 and 1982, using a bedroom full of homemade gear plus some conventional instrumentation, core members Protag (later of Alternative TV, Blyth Power and Zounds) and Mark Lancaster ("somewhere between Cooper Clarke and Mark E. Smith") forged a warped hybrid of traditional song craft and lo-fi primitive post punk. Although cassettes were the band's native medium, they also appeared on several vinyl releases, including their own EP and various compilations featuring similar weirdos. For fans of the Messthetics compilations (Hyped to Death released the Another Wasted Sunday Afternoon compilation CD), Urinals, Homosexuals. Curated by Lancaster, Sincerely Making A Noise dusts off curiosities from the Instant Automatons archives (Peter Paints His Fence EP, Angst In My Pants EP, No Platform For Heels LP, Love Not Devotion LP, Tape Transport cassette). Co-released by Beat Generation and B.F.E. Records. First time ever that most of the songs appear on a vinyl release. Compilation from lost cassette releases. 180 gram vinyl. Edition of 300.
