Decomposing is one of the treasures in the Nash the Slash discography. It includes perhaps his most loved song, Womble, the iconic status of which was confirmed when Trevor Jackson included it on his Metal Dance release for Strut Records. Three other (de)compositions round out the release, each as excellent as Womble, and each with a personality of its own.
The original 12" was released in 1981, when Nash claimed that it was the first record ever playable at three speeds: 33, 45, and 78 RPM. The original release is extremely rare, having been issued only by Nash's own independent label Cut-Throat, and, unlike other early Nash releases, never licensed to Europe.
The Artoffact Records reissue is fully remastered and is available on both black and collector yellow vinyl. The fantastic decomposing sheet music cover has been lovingly restored.
On the CD version, fans will find the album repeated three times, once at each vinyl speed, capturing the original 12" concept in high-definition, digital audio for the first time ever.

Glamatron released this album around the time Gary Numan's early industrial stuff and David Bowie's magic were at their peak, so the inspiration is pretty audible on this album. It's just a wonderful, melodic, weird, synthy stuff that I can't help but love.
this really sounds like aliens landing. can't believe this was made in 1983. a good release with varying themes. kickass songs and creepy tracks. love it all. The digipack is nicely arranged, i love the presentation and the silver and blue ballpoint pen style. it's worth it for the photos alone pookaball
