MANCHESTER MEKON - NO FORGETTING THE ALBUM
The Manchester Mekon was a group of musicians, active during the '70s and early '80s. Influenced by Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, Igor Stravinsky, King Crimson, Maurice Revel and Pink Floyd, the Manchester Mekon aimed to integrate composed and improvised music, blending orchestral and electronic sounds with rock, both live and in the studio. This album, which covers the group's entire career, includes live recordings, studio recordings, home recordings and even rehearsal tapes. Two of these tracks ended up on Manchester Musicians' Collective compilation albums, but most cuts are previously unissued. This edition is limited to 500 copies.
