What an amazing experience! To host the very first Sshe Retina Stimulants show in New York. At that point in time The Pyramid was like a home base for key BloodLust! shows. And Paolo from SRS was a core partner in the launch of the label in 1995, as he was instrumental in bringing some of the most significant Japanese noise artists of the day to the label, for a string of intense releases -- as well creating the link between BloodLust! and the new wave of Italian death-industrial and power-electronics artists. Paolo was functioning as a curator and A&R man, as well as an artist whose integration into the label is clearly demonstrated by a look through the BloodLust! discography. His releases are among the first and his collaborations are many. He was there in the control room at Acme Soundworks, when we were sequencing, editing and mastering the BLOODYMINDED "Trophy" CD in 1995. And of course, the link between Sigillum S and Intrinsic Action dates back nearly 10 years earlier! I could not be happier to release this essential live document from 18 years ago and I - generally - remember the day very well. We were running late because a certain Canadian was dominating the single bathroom in our Brooklyn apartment... --Mark Solotroff, March 2014
