about

Considered by many to be an electronic classic, this is Short-term memory's first release.

"A largely synthesized effort in the best chukka-chukka, burble-burble, twitch, bleep-bleep, twitch, boing-boing tradition, but still contains more than enough humor and lyrical insight to be fully human and enjoyable..."
...excerpt from Kansas City Star...

SHORT-TERM adj OCCURRING OVER OR INVOLVING A RELATIVELY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME.

MEMORY n THE POWER OR PROCESS OF REPRODUCING OR RECALLING WHAT HAS BEEN LEARNED AND RETAINED esp. THROUGH ASSOCIATIVE MECHANISMS.

SHORT-TERM MEMORY n 1) A BAND FORMED BY THREE INDIVIDUALS FOR THE PURPOSE OF EXPLORING AND REPRODUCING SOUNDS THROUGH THE MANIPULATION OF ANALOG SYNTHESIZERS AND DRUM MACHINES. 2) A BAND THAT CONTINUALLY CHANGED ITS PERSONNEL AND ITS MIND AS TO WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC AND WHAT SOUND PRODUCING MEDIUM IT WOULD USE.

EVERY HEAD NEEDS CLEANING IS THE FIRST MUSIC RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC BY THE ORIGINAL MEMBERS OF SHORT-TERM MEMORY.

Note: This is the original song order with 3 additional songs added at the end for your enjoyment. We also included pictures of the original cassette packaging.
