NOTES...
"Recorded 1979-1980 at Pathway studios with Gareth Jones. Pathway was an eight-track cupboard in Islington, North London, owned by two characters who wrote Fire for Arthur Brown. Very basic, very scruffy, very good.

"Gareth was a hippy Freudian BBC drop-out, and these were his first real recording sessions. He soon became an innovator. I was in retreat from bands, touring, etc. mightily convinced that electronics were the future, and reading too much J.G. Ballard.

"I lived alone in Finsbury Park, spent my spare time walking the disused train lines, cycled to the studio every day and wobbled back at dawn, imagining I was the Marcel Duchamp of electropop. Metamatic was the result. It was the first British electronic pop album. It was minimal, primitive technopunk. Carcrash music tailored by Burtons.

"All the same sounds surfaced again after 1987, reanimated with beautiful new rhythms, as the beginnings of Acid. I recognised the vocabulary immediately. A new underground at last. Adventure was possible again after the double-breasted dumbness of the mid-eighties."
