about

Demonstration recordings and out-takes from the Emission Control Archive. Recorded between 1980 and 1984.

Nocturnal Emissions remain faithful to an interior clock of their own on Duty Experiment, a compilation of mid-80s glory-days outtakes that features some nostalgically post-punk titles like Tanks in Gdansk and Even The Good Times Are Bad. The music sounds not unlike the live vivisection of old ARP 2600 synthesisers. Takes the paint off walls.

Nocturnal Emissions' Nigel Ayers has continued to work with a strong underground of cult support, avoiding music industry fashions, and following his own creative path he concentrated on creating a strong sense of a wilderness identity through sound.
