Release notes

Reissue of the 1978 debut 7″ by Mars, one of the essential bands from New York’s no wave scene. “A cavernous musical universe riddled with eerie sound storms whose poisoned atmosphere seduced and threatened. Obtuse and unforgiving. Sickly sexy.” – Lydia Lunch

“The group later known as Mars came together in late 1975 through a chance meeting of those involved . . . After a year of cooking up a sound, we played our first gig at CBGBs (under the short-lived name China) in January ’77 with Sumner, China and I alternating on Silvertone guitars and bass through tube amps, and Nancy on drums . . . The first single (3E/11,000 Volts) was recorded and mixed by Jay Dee Daugherty under the impulse of Lenny Kaye for their label with Patti Smith, Mer…” –Mark Cunningham
