Repeat is one of the seminal experimental rock works from this British avant rock group, who along with Sonic Youth and Wire are considered the godfathers of the movement known as post-rock. Repeat is an extraordinary piece of tape loop, guitar, bass, drums, and electronics that picks up the mantle of rock experimentation left by Can and Faust and creates a sound so influential as to echo well into the next decade. Fans of Tortoise, Brise-Glace, Photek, Oval, and Mouse on Mars take note: It all started with this 1980 single, reissued here as a 3" CD.
