Remixes by Bill Laswell and Mick Harris


released January 1, 1996

Original Press Release:

" Trawl is a virtual alter collaboration of Robin Rimbaud, aka Scanner. In stark contrast to the scanned ethernet soundscapes of the Scanner material, the work of Trawl focuses on the bass and the swinging hips music of the younger generation. Put down that Semiotexte pamphlet, wash up those coffee cups and throw on your rhythm clogs for a bout of hedonistic spinal assault.

"Muscle-bound, chart-bound and a heaving body of pure sensuality" is what the press have called Trawl. Try and imagine a future with music as cool as a 60 watt bulb and as smooth as a super-models legs and you are somewhere near the work of Trawl." :-)

In memory of John Everall of Sentrax who kindly supported this release. RIP you fine man.
