Gyatso originally appeared on Kevin Martin's Pathological label in 1994 as a CD and was rereleased, again on CD, in 2008 by Savageland.
Praxis, in collaboration with Skin & Speech proudly presents the first vinyl edition of this classic album. The vinyl edition contains 6 tracks and includes the download for the full 13 track album.

Saxophonist Alex Buess and drummer Knut Remond originated 16-17's turbulent sound in the comparatively sedate surroundings of Basel, Switzerland, in 1983. Sharing fellow country-man H.R. Giger's fascination with suppressed horrors, their primal shock therapy raged against passivity. 16-17 were determined to locate a shared melting point for Extremist Rock, Free Music, and Avant-Garde electronic.
