Expect the Unexpected . . .


Okay, here we have some fresh sounds from the 70s. I'm sure anyone keeping track of sounds in the blogosphere are aware of Lem's 'Machines'. Alex Cima and Bryce Robbley composed the music for this effort and added some fairly leftfield lyrics to some of the tracks. The record was a private release on Wavefront Records (the only release on this label). The machines were various electronic music making devices: synthesizers, vocoders, Syndrums, arpeggiators, etc. Cima went on to produce some grail vinyls and Robbley was caught up in a Moebius strip (more on that later). All this occurred in 1977 on the left coast of North America.
