in 1993, a group of electronic troubadours set about writing and recording a tribute to their favourite band, Whitehouse. amongst them, ex-Whitehouse member Glenn Michael Wallis, founder of Industrial pioneers Konstruktivists, former stagehand for Throbbing Gristle. the recordings were given away with the book "Still Going Strong", a collection of interviews, reviews and newspaper snippets about Whitehouse and their legendary live actions.
created, edited and published by Mark Crumby's IMPULSE label, it has become a massively sought after collector's item. the book, that is. not the tape. the tape never got the attention it deserves, and everything around it seems to be embarrassing for the involved persons.
it took 20 years to unveil the mysteries to it, to identify the names and persons behind this labour of love. while considered a parody by many, including William Bennett, we feel that this highly underrated work by dedicated artists should be brought to a new generation of Power Electronic kids.
together with our friends [aufnahme+wiedergabe] we're going to re-release this tape now.
