Robert "Killer" Fields – S/T


Who is Robert “Killer” Fields? That is a legitimate question. To be honest, I have no idea. I do know that in 1986 he decided to make a tape. A very homemade tape.  The first side of this cassette is a complete genre fuck. Mr. Fields lets loose with nine tracks of raunchy and vulgar songs. A regular salty dog, he is. The majority of that side is remarkable for the fact that he recorded these songs presumably for himself.

Side two, however, is something completely different.  Mr. Fields gives us nine more tracks that somehow peel back the mind of this man and lay bare the beauty of this artist. Strictly instrumental, the second side builds soundscapes of utter joy, an orgasmic shower of cosmic sidewalk bliss.

I can only fathom a guess as to this mans life and identity. The cassette was produced lovingly with handmade labels pasted onto a gold Maxell XL 90. Reputably, some of the best cassettes ever produced in the 80’s. The cover is printed onto glossy paper with the lightest hint of blue ball pen ink, that undoubtedly produced the straight lines for cutting the covers apart. Truly an artifact to be treasured.

Enjoy the ride.
