ULTRA VIVID SCENEMercy Seat” (4AD, 1988)

Brilliant first LP released in 88 entirely written, composed, played, sang and recorded by Kurt Ralske. Influenced by Velvet Underground and the specific sound of the 80’s created by Jesus and Mary Chain or Spacemen 3. Ultra Vivid Scene was the New York answer to that UK scene. The band stopped in 1993.
