[Recorded in 2000]
In the mid-'90s Paul and Springbok Nude Girls guitarist Theo Crous became friends. (Theo went on to become a renowned producer, co-producing the 2014 Terminatryx "Shadow" album with Paul).
In 1999 Paul borrowed a 4-track recorder from Theo to lay down some songs. Two of these were salvaged and included here (in its analog glory). After laying down beats, a few layers of bass guitar got added. Most songs got lost but two instrumentals were salvaged (not everyone has a cassette deck lying around to convert to digital!).
These two analog tracks are on the lo-fi side, but laced with mood.
The one track was used with various other F8 songs as soundtrack for a short film made by Paul and Sonja (his wife and co-creator of Terminatryx, the South African HorrorFest Film Festival and The Makabra Ensemble). The short film was titled imPERFECTION, and since it only had a working title, it seemed apt to change it to match that of the movie as it's title theme.
In addition to these two analog instrumentals, another shelved song ("Diskonnekt") was resurrected and re-recorded, plus version 2 of Drone, a continuation of the percussion loop cut from 1998's Pronounced: FATE.
