about

A double L.P. compilation culled from the first 9 ZACHT AUTOMAAT releases. Assembled by C___ Didur and M___ McLean in 2013 and pressed and released by Calico Corp. - U.S. Girls' Meg Remy and Max Turnbull's wax boutique. Remaining copies of the 2nd pressing (without the original album-length CD of unreleased material) are for sale by the band while they last.

The compilation was viewed, in one sense, as an idealized AUTOMAAT album. We had made and released (either as cassettes with Toronto label MEDUSA and our own E.C.H. label or digitally through direct download and later bandcamp) 10 or 11 albums at that point. A moment of reflection and selection of the finest examples was an exciting and promising venture. Almost all the tracks are whole, with the exception of the final long phasing drone (which wouldn't fit). Short pieces were short in their original locations. Some suites of connected songs were left inact, many new and exciting combinations were created - all in the spirit of the original albums.

Some heed was paid to fidelity. The sub-4-track root of many of the original recordings made them unsuited for inclusion on the LP. Even at our tightest knit, things are unravelling...
