JOHN BENDER

PLASTER FALLING

SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Format: LP
Cata No: SV102
Barcode: 855985006024
Plaster Falling was recorded at the same time as John
Bender’s first album, I Don’t Remember Now / I Don’t Want
To Talk About It. Released in 1981 on the artist’s own Record
Sluts label, copies of Plaster Falling’s initial pressing
came hermetically sealed in plaster (and later latex).
Thus, listeners had to literally break open the record to find
what’s hidden inside.
Produced in relative isolation, Plaster Falling is a beacon
of brilliance in the nascent minimal-wave sphere. Veering
towards skeletal urgency, these recordings set bright analogue
melodies against half-whispered vocals and expand
Bender’s electronic cryptography thru a series of lone signifiers:
“Station,” “Plaster,” “Women,” etc.
As Bender explains in the liner notes, “I began to distance
myself from the present and describe scenes as if in a
movie – seeking concrete, terse, juxtaposed imagery.”
This first-time standalone reissue is recommended for
fans of Gareth Williams & Mary Currie’s Flaming Tunes,
Minimal Man and Grouper. Pressed on translucent blue vinyl
in a limited / numbered edition of 1,000 copies.
