DEMONSTRATIONS: "Heard Under Social Hypnosis"

by EYE



A collection of early 'demos' (1993-1994) mostly recorded on 8-track analogue reel-to-reel at Community Radio 2XX's 'Studio C'; a few of these (as noted on each track) were recorded on analogue 4-track cassette tape.

These tracks were originally released on 1000 copies of the "Herd Under Social Hypnosis" cassette album. While there are a dozen-or-so earlier EYE demo-recordings that cassette album was the first collection of EYE music that was:
i) commercially available (via indie record stores & mail order); and
ii) sent to media (like radio & zines) for reviews and airplay.

The most popular track was the thrashy cyberpunk-electro-industrial-metal opening 2-part piece titled "Grave New World". In the sense of getting attention and enthusiastic support it was EYE's first "hit". Radio shows around Australia, even in Europe and the Americas, played it on air off of the cassette! Over subsequent years numerous independent record labels, around the world, released it on their various artist compilation CD albums; constituting around 2500-5000 CDs.

This collection was made available on BandCamp in early 2015. The track-listing has been slightly altered to place the '(anti-)propaganda soundscapes' at the end. Originally they were at the end of each side of the cassette tape.

None of the tracks have been mastered. When the cassette album was released mastering wasn't "a thing" for underground artists. It wasn't until the mid-late 90s that it became locally available. So they're all a bit 'raw' and punk ;) - being how some people prefer them. EYE's intention however is to eventually master them and if they're superior, to re-upload those here, in due course. ;-)
