Kiss of Acid - a composition for pre-recorded tam tam and electronics. Lasse Marhaug - electronics / computer / compositional structure. Mark Wastell - pre-recorded 32" paiste tam tam. The „Kiss of Acid Story” as told by Mark Wastell: I had hired a tam-tam, 36" Paiste, to take to a solo concert in Paris. There was some confusion over train tickets and I regretfully never made it out of London. So, I had to make use of this instrument that I had paid for for the weekend. I hastily contacted THE recording engineer of the period, Graham Halliwell (wonderful musician too, yeah, you know that!), and we quickly arranged a session at the acoustically perfect Old School, Norfolk. Hours were spent perfecting microphone placement and recording volumes and subsequently some tastey tam-tam music was committed to tape. Then what to do with it? Lasse and I had crossed paths a few times over the preceding years; noteably a concert together in Trondheim, Norway with Michael Duch and a show I had organised for him at Sound 323 with Ronnie Sundin. I suggested (pleaded?) that he might like to work with the tam-tam material and he agreed. Time passed, composition was cast.

Lasse completed the task admirably. I intended to release it on my label, Confront. Never happened (can't remember why ?!?!). We offered it to Ideal. Waited a couple of years. Never happened .... (we still love you Joachim!). Offered it to Touch pretty sure Mike never listened to it). Time passed, slowly... Then, BANG! Five years after recording ... we get a deal.” label info
