VA - T3RRA INC0GN1TA (1985)

A life changing record for me when this came out, copy purchased on school trip to Portland, OR. From the defunct Auxilio de Cientos imprimatur. Synthpop, soundscape, dark wave, ambient ... with a few well-known contributors, and a number of less-known figures: Zazou, Muslimgauze, Diseno Corbusier, Bene Gesserit..... even a track with lyrics credited to one Nicolas Bourriaud (could it be the same one who wrote The Radicant?). An album whose content then was pure dreamscape--indeed escape-scape--and whose form now represents the lure of nostalgia, another time, a dreamstate incognito of its own.
