vinyl - part 15


"Live in Heaven" by Psychic TV.

"These records are intended to be seen as thee equivalent of a monthly magazine to which one subscribes, or which one collects to form an encyclopaedic body of work for thee reference and interest of those with a committed and ongoing interest.  We do not necessarily choose events or disconcerts that are our own particular favourites.  Nor thee music or sound arrangements that are necessarily thee most technically flattering or perfectly executed.  We try to supply all those moments, eccentricities, obscurities that would normally never be available, that an enthusiast, or thorough researcher would like to have.  This particular record is one that numerous aficionados have expressed repeatedly that they would like access to.  This series is an access service for thee already interested public so we have made it available.

Psychic TV were going through another transformation and thus thee line up was a one-off collaboration for thee pleasure of all.  It is always hard to visualise and feel thee atmosphere of an event at which one was not present.  This evening was very sweaty, funny, chaotic butter happy.  It was a communal celebration of a pagan day.  All that is in our memories and those of the audience who filled Heaven.  This record is, and cannot be, that whole event.  It is a moment in time, and time is that which ends.  There are four time codes.  Past Time, Present Time, Future Time and Timelessness.  All existing in ratio within our conscious and subconscious minds for no reason."
