Wild Planet Revisited – AMM

Wild Planet P1-05

Trying to cover the expanse of this freeform experimental group would be a daunting task for a whole website, let alone one paragraph! Even to try and do justice to AMM here would be impossible, so best read their Wikipedia entry for the full story. Surely one of the longest surviving groups, starting in 1965, and still releasing albums as recently as 2014. AMM were probably an influence on the more experimental and abstract end of the electronic genre, such as Current 93 and Nurse With Wound, and they cross paths on the United Dairies compilation LP mentioned in the paragraph above.

The earliest mention in the archive is this review from 1980, when they were already on their third incarnation.
