Dark Entries has dug deep in the New Jersey basement of Smersh to release the 2xLP compilation 'Cassette Pets'. Smersh was the duo of Mike Mangino and Chris Shepard, who started writing music together in the late 70's. They were uninterested in traditional notions of songwriting or live performance. Everything they needed was in Piscataway NJ: a basement full of musical toys and instruments, novelty space microphones, a TR-606, a SH-09, and a couple of tape recorders. Most Monday nights, they would write a new song from scratch. A couple hours later, the song was recorded, never to be performed again. By 1981, this dedication to spontaneous creativity had already produced countless recordings, and the duo began releasing cassettes as Smersh via their own Atlas King label. A definitive Smersh discography may not even be possible, but one lists more than 30 Atlas King cassettes. As these tapes traded their way across continents, Smersh developed a devoted following in places far beyond Piscataway, leading to releases on dozens of other labels from around the globe. For 'Cassette Pets' 17 songs have been selected, featuring some of the many highlights from Smersh's vast discography, spanning 1981-1994. Smersh's sound is a lush hybrid of techno, industrial, dance, and experimental. Sometimes easy, sometime not. Most songs revolve around driving EBM style beats, intricate industrial noise manipulation and synth melodies. The Smersh sound has so many faces it doesn't fall into any one category. The vinyl comes housed in a deluxe gatefold jacket with original drawings by Mike Mangino, lyrics and photos. 'Cassette Pets' is a sneak peak into the subversive world of New Jersey's isolated, prolific legends of the cassette underground. Fat!!

Smersh was the much revered project of New Jersey duo Mike Mangino & Chris Shepard. Together they recorded more than 30 albums throughout the 80's and early 90's. Their vision: rehearsal at monday night, record their improvisations, no live performances, only albums. 'M Appeal' compiled archive tracks certainly recorded in the mid 80's. Nieuwegein's most warped mind Parrish Smith, on remix duty.. TIP!
