Here’s what Adrian Smith has to tell about this limited cassette release: “Some of the music for “Subterranean” came from recordings I made between 1979 and 1988. Edits were taken from “Electronic Music” (1978), “Music From The Maze” (1981) and “Nada” (1988) and added to work recorded between 2000 and 2019; these were then edited and recorded onto tape before being disected and rearranged into the final mix. Because of the varied quality of some of the recordings (and my total disregard for track separation) compression and equalisation turned out to be very problematic, but considering some of the material came from cassette tapes which had been sitting in a dust covered box for 40 years, I hope you’ll take these problems into consideration before you press PLAY.”
