exit is one of my many cherished albums


way beyond its time


at the time it was shocking


dynamic and almost menacing, superbly focussed and rythmic

a cyclical pointer to late 80's techno and a reminder in time of TD;s knowingness and command of thee beat of the zeitgeist


bm passes out :arrow:


TD were on a roll, I remember buying Thief, then Exit and then White Eagle and thinking it was the best music ever. Music with emotion that was light years ahead of anybody else, technology and sound wise. For me they couldn't put a foot wrong when they did Exit, it typified what I thought was great about the TD at the time; stunning use of timbre with a huge restrainedpower (you could try to imagine it at home) but it was live that they stunned you (in every sense). It was perfect marriage of the right time, the right technology and (without them there would be been nothing) the right musicians.


Exit was the culmination of a period in my life when TD meant an awful lot to me. They still do of course, but back then they helped to steer me on a path away from probable self-destruction.


Nice one, you should thank Chris, Edgar and Johannes personally


You're right, I should, but I seem to have mislaid their numbers. Maybe when I see them at the pub next! :wink:

and then we had POLAND 8)


Without analysing the arse out of it, I think it was 'partly' due to the perfect balance of analog and digital equipment (with some tape loops thrown in) that made Exit. No longer did music have to be all muffled...now you could have bass, but now with sweeps of harmonics, glass-like, voice like or anything inbetween. On Exit TD threw everything they had into it, heart and head (not to say quite a few quid on studio equipment). Total compositions they told a story, had development, soared and weaved and pulsed and didn't have to be 25 minutes long to take you on that journey.

Lads I salute you!

I totally agree with all of the above.

I was living in very remotely then, when I got my hands on Exit I played it every day for at least a year. My ex girlfriend still reminds me of it - she associates me with 'listening to TD every day' :lol:

These days I'm listening to a lot of Pete Namlook, just found out he's got 135+ albums out :o only got 50 or so - but growing rapidly

I too have tried to keep up with Pete !!

Among my favourites -------

From the PK series -

Jet chambers (most)
Namlook series (most again but 8/9 and 5 and in particular 14 (Go no go ! fantastic driving song)

I really love the PW series - the older Shades of Orion's and Psychonavigation's and the 2350 Broadway's

Again like most its a match against quality and quantity - I do actually like most !


If anyone is not keyed in to PN :wink: yet check out the Ambient Cookbooks -- excellent starters and great in their own right (the music sequencing of tracks together would make even CF blush !)

While I can wax lyrical on TD I can go overboard sometimes on PN -- one word always sums Pete up for me and that is ORIGINAL - in style, product distribution, technology, variety - he's done it all, every format of music style has been given the PN treatment - his co-composers that he selects for either PK or PW are given equal billing and space. The distribution of the product is just right for the audience. Forgot to mention the DSOTM's - two equals no ego's.

Often copied - never equalled !

Pete Namlook is an artist I'm not familiar with. I'm scared to even try, in case I become hooked. That truly is a prodigious output! :shock:
