Double CD set from cult Manchester electronic music pioneer Eric Random, best known for his early recordings for New Hormones and Les Disques du Crépuscule, and collaborations with Pete Shelley (Buzzcocks), Cabaret Voltaire and Nico.

As an original member of The Tiller Boys with Shelley, Random injected a healthy dose of Krautrock into the dour Manchester post-punk scene in 1978/79 before going solo the following year. Early singles included Dow Chemical Company, Subliminal and That's What I Like About Me, the latter an NME Single of the Week. His first album Earthbound Ghost Need followed in March 1982, with guest contributions from Richard H. Kirk and Stephen Mallinder of Cabaret Voltaire. These early records are variously informed by electronica, loops, jazz, dub and mutant funk.

This remastered set features the first three Random singles on New Hormones and Crépuscule, two rare compilation-only tracks for Touch and Plurex, and 1982 album Earthbound Ghost Need. The whole adds up to 105 minutes of sinister, sonambulent Random music.

Cover art by Claude Stassart. CD booklet features liner notes and archive images.
