Experimental Products - Prototype... plus Garage Tracks

A synth duo from Philadelphia/Northern Delaware USA, members Mark Wilde and Michael Gross produced 8-track gear recordings, then had their music pressed to vinyl. In 1984 they released the 3 song 12'' EP ''Glowing in the Dark'', 2000 copies. ''Glowing'' proved irresistible to DJs and became a 1985 dance club chart breakthrough. 2 years before ''Glowing'' they released a 10 song vinyl LP titled ''Prototype'', 300 copies. This re-issue has improved sonic quality not found on the original 1982 pressings. Prototype is side A+B of the VOD double record set. Garage Tracks side-A contains 5 unreleased songs from 1985, all synth-drum machine, again produced with 8-track gear this time in a band spare bedroom. Side-B contains six songs from a 1983 Live performance. There are live versions of 4 songs from Prototype, an unreleased song, and the song Mannequin from the ''Glowing'' EP.
