Intro
I bought this CD after a concert in Geneva. At the time I was very surprised that Peter Hamill was still giving us an opportunity to see him on stage, and it was by chance that I saw a little notice somewhere. The public and the band seemed not really aware of/prepared to what they were going to have in front of each other, and I remember one guy asking for some "rock and roll" and Peter Hamill replying that they were not exactly a rock and roll band, and sorry... or something like this. It was a good concert, with Jackson also there and a violonist, and maybe some others. After it, there was an opportunity to buy some CDs, and, as I knew I don't like every Hammill's CD, I engaged a conversation with a guy there, for advice, asking which were the best ones there for sale, since I knew there would not be another opportunity. (no Hammill CDs in the geneva shops at that time). I ended buying 3 CDs which were this one(Enter K), "Patience", and "Roaring Forties". And was not disappointed with any of them. So thank's to the guy...

The CD now :
Musicians :
K/Peter Hamill - Vox Keyboards Guitar (this gives us a clue to "K" but only a clue[?])
Brain/Guy Evans - Drums Percussions
Mozart/Nic Potter - Bass
Fury/John Ellis - Guitar
Jaxon/David Jackson - Sax on songs 2 and 5
all songs by Hammill - Recorded in 1982, Remastered 1991

The songs :
those I like the most :
- 2 The unconscious life (5:05) A very nice ballad.
- 3 Accidents (4:35) a little disturbing, giving an impressions with dissonance and special sounds, that everything is not quite in order, to try to reproduce the feelings someone having an accident, or in the wake of one, I think, and it works well.
- 4 The great experiment (5:05) Very good working song.

Massively underrated 1983 album from Hammill, during his 'K Group' era. It contains some of what I consider his greatest songs: The Unconscious Life' and 'Accidents' in particular. Because of the band makeup it has a VDGG feel to it, and though it has a couple of mediocre tracks, nothing is bad, and the best tracks make it a must-have, IMHO.

'Beyond all normal pain and pleasure
We should treasure the unconscious life'
