Stress is the duo of Alan Rider and Phil Clarke from West Midlands, England formed in 1981. Alan was editor of Coventry fanzine 'Adventures In Reality', and Phil was editor of Nuneaton fanzine 'Damn Latin'. Stress combined electronic rhythms and keyboards with bass guitar, vocals, percussion, and cut-up samples. They created catchy electronic pop songs that fused accessible & experimental elements with a pointed lyrical edge in the vein of Cabaret Voltaire, Depeche Mode and Joy Division. Their 1st 2 albums were cassette releases on Alan's own Adventures In Reality Recordings label. 'Help Comes Too Late' in 1982 followed by 'Restraint' in 1984. In July 1985 Stress released 'The Big Wheel' album and appeared on numerous cassette and vinyl compilations worldwide. More gigs and press followed and the album took the number #1 spot in the NME's electronic charts. Stress split in september 1985 and re-formed briefly in 1991 to record 2 tracks. 'Conspiracy Theory' is an 11-song best-of compilation album featuring tracks from the 1st 2 cassette albums with 'The Prayer Clock' from Third Mind Records' 'Life At The Top' compilation LP and "Tear It Down" from the 'Compulsory Overtime' compilation LP. Each LP also includes a 16-page booklet 'Stress Edition' of Adventures in Reality fanzine with photos, equipment list, press cuttings, lyrics and an exclusive Stress badge. Really Nice !!
