Review: Emotional Rescue delves deep in to the past with the release of the first ever recordings by UK post-industrial, ambient pioneers O Yuki Conjugate (OYC). Recorded in Nottingham in 1983, the EP's four tracks showcase OYC's early sound: a beat-driven, lo-fi that places them alongside the early British electronic pioneers.

OYC, celebrating their 35th anniversary this year, are known for their "dirty ambient" sound - but it wasn't always thus. In their earliest incarnation OYC explored a more industrial approach characterised by tortured analogue drum machines, one-finger synth lines, played bass, tape loops and even flute. This naive sound template lasted until their debut album 'Scene in Mirage' (1984) before being jettisoned in favour of more ambient explorations.

The story behind these recordings is one of brotherly love between bands. OYC swapped time in their rehearsal space for a day's use of a four-track cassette portastudio owned by their associates, Metamorphosis. Three of the tracks included were recorded on May 1st 1983 at The End Room (literally a studio at the back of one of OYC's parents houses) with the remaining track (live favourite "The Clattering Song") being produced a couple of months later.

To date OYC have remained largely unknown in the UK due to their wilfully obscure approach. They have released a series of very well regarded studio albums and innumerable spin-off and side projects that has recently seen a revival of interest in their early years, including appearances on Cherry Red's compilation of formative UK electronic scene 'Close to the Noise Floor' and Optimo's compilation of Fourth World-style music 'Miracle Steps'.

Accepting their fate as musical outsiders, OYC continue to make music with little reference to the wider world. This EP makes a fine addition to that body of work.

Review: Emotional Rescue returns to the music of "dark ambient" pioneers O Yuki Conjugate (OYC) with the reissue of their debut album, 'Scene in Mirage'. Released in 1984, it's post-industrial; cold wave overtures mixed with an ambient oeuvre created a compelling album that has gained cult status.

Recorded in a four-track basement studio in Leeds it showcases two very different sides to their sound. Side E follows the earlier recordings of their debut cassette release "Untitled" (ERC051), with use of analogue drum machines, synthesizers, bass an the ingenious use of tape loops made from audio cassettes stolen from local public libraries.

Side O however, points to the future development of the band with experimental sound collages. Built from percussion, voice, flute and drones created using a home made digital delay with a 1.6 second sampling feature for instant soundscapes. At the touch of a button this was DIY at its core when at the time most samplers cost more than a four-bedroom house in Knightsbridge.

Quickly selling out in its original pressing, inexplicably their record label decided not to re-press, so an expanded cassette version called 'Scene In Mirage/Soundtracks' was re-released on the band's own Final Image label with an accompanying video. Here, Emotional Rescue's re-issue combines the best of both versions in a lovingly recreated sleeve taken from the original design templates.

Based around original members Roger Horberry and Andrew Hulme, OYC is now returning in its fourth incarnation with live shows and hopefully, new music to come. Watch the horizon.

Review: British dark ambient legends O Yuki Conjugate return with their first album in over twenty years.

The three remaining members of the collective are Andrew Hulme, Rob Jenkins And Roger Horberry who over the years released on such esteemed labels as Staalplaat, Soleilmoon and their own Final Image imprint.
