second in the Nuum series c/o The Wire: Ambient Jungle, published September 1994

(Funny thing I never noticed before: that photo portait was taken by famed artist Jeremy Deller. Now he did a painting called The History of the World 1997-2004 that's kind of a cultural flow-chart of the tangled intersections between nuumological and postpunk musical narratives and UK socioeconomics/politics. Sm:)e Records, who presumably commissioned that shot, put out in 1994 a compilation, brillantly mixed by DB, called The History of Our World, Part 1: Breakbeat and Jungle Ultramix, made up of tracks from Moving Shadow, Reinforced, Production House, Suburban Base, Formation, sleevenotes by yours truly.)
