It was 23 years ago today...
There was a buzz in the record shops. A faint buzz, but a buzz that seemed to increase when the subject of releases and rare, valuable things was brought up.
Steve Kilbey, already producer of notable solo works and on fire after the release of The Church's Starfish album, had a new project out on Rykodisc. It was called Hex. It was done with Donnette Thayer of Game Theory.
It was mysterious and wonderful. It was a must purchase at all costs sort of thing. I have had my copy of this and the follow-up, Vast Haloes, since the days they appeared in the shops (oh, give or take a week, maybe).
If you want to acquire your own, you can visit Steve Kilbey's Bandcamp.
