As you probably know, the music we make is basically loosely-structured rhythm rides, deeply centered around percussion in all its forms. We don’t use percussion to drive music; we use music to dress up the percussion.
Back in the day (late ‘70’s – early ‘80’s), before we became a seminal influence in the creation of the ambient music genre, we were making “regular” music, a blend of early ‘80s rock and tribal chanting — songs with lyrics, verses, choruses.
We thought it would be fun to re-release some of these early songs, which were part of a cassette called PRAY BODY. Like messengers from a bygone era, the energy in these songs rings as clearly as ever, and Gabrielle’s lyrics are as relevant today as they were in those days of yore.
