    ADSR press release notes:

    After several releases on Ultra dub Recordings this is the first release on a.d.s.r. by the finnish band Nu Science.

    On this record Henri Tani and Mikko Ojanen create a mixture of neat electronica melodies made with tons of analog synths and C64 sounds, used in a more melancholic and silent way than we know it from a lot of other records that come out within the C64 and 80s hype of the moment. This album is more an adventure game than a jump and run. Tired robots with low batteries smile amused while riding a space shuttle returning back to space...

    Guests on this album were:
    Op:l Bastards' T.A. Kaukolampi and mini of Polytron.
    Intro on A3 by Erkki Kurenniemi, a legendary Dinnish synth wizard.

    Distribution: Morr Music (D), Hardwax (D), Baked Goods (UK).
