artist: Thee Hyphen
title: Incidental Tools Of Confusion
reference number: BDMCD40
release date: 2021-06-25
If "Consolidated Green" which was released in 2004 is to date the
only Thee Hyphen’s record included in the BOREDOMproduct label's
catalog, the very first album by Thee Hyphen was however recorded
ten years earlier, in 1994. "Incidental Tool of Confusion", then
released both on cassette and CD-R, already had the seeds of these
electronic infected pop songs in it, some of which like "This Aching
Kiss" would end up on Celluloide's records a few years later.
This debut album has just benefited from a complete restoration
work from the original 4-track analog tapes: the sound has been
cleaned up and remastered, the vocals got rid of the original effects
to gain more clarity, and today "Incidental Tool of Confusion" is
being offered the scope that was meant to be at the time.
