Short-Term Memory – Effect Of Excess
LP Fresh Sounds Inc [FS 209]  (1984)

Buy it here:  http://short-termmemory.bandcamp.com/releases

Short-term Memory's 3rd release and 1st LP follows the 1983's full length cassette Every Head Needs Cleaning www.zero-one.org/stm/
and a cassette EP Lost in Gundam (1984).

Effect of Excess (1984) covers a period of transition for the band with Kevin Dooley leaving and Cat Cooper and Robert Duckworth joining. The shift in personnel drove a change from strictly sequenced rhythms to real drumming with the addition of bass guitar underpinning the sound. Jim dusted off his clavinet as a main instrument to complement his synthesizer. Other instruments were also brought in to flesh out the sound.

Songs 1,3 & 5 reflect the early period with Kevin, looking backward, and the remainder of the album looks forward to the ongoing changes that were to envelop Short-term Memory.

Other Short-term Memory releases will be added to bandcamp in the near future.
