Artikelnummer: 1749379 / BLACKEST007
Black Rain was a project formed in New York City by Stuart Argabright of cult no wave / post-punk outfit Ike Yard.~~Originally conceived as an industrial death metal band, over time Black Rain was whittled down to a two-piece - Argabright ~~and Shinichi Shimokawa - and began to focus on a more electronic, minimalist and rhythm-centric sound. ~~~~Argabright and Shimokawa were commissioned to create an original score for Robert Longo's 1995 film Johnny Mnemonic.~~Black Rain's music didn't feature in the movie's final cut - something of a mercy, given what a turkey it turned out to be - but some~~of it found its way onto an audiobook edition of William Gibson's Neuromancer, and the tracks were later collected on the~~album 1.0 (Fifth Colvmn CD, 1995)~~~~This LP release on Blackest Ever Black is a selection of the best Black Rain instrumentals from those '94-'95 sessions: seven ~~richly atmospheric, brooding rhythm tracks that together constitute a lost classic of post-industrial music, and a genuine ~~cyberpunk artefact, remastered and cut to vinyl for the very first time.
