300 copies, deluxe box set. Australian experimental industrial and ambient music band from the early 1980s Laughing Hands complete discography with several bonus.  Laughing Hands worked in the experimental music scene in Melbourne in the very early 1980s. They were an improvisation group using tapes, synthesizers, guitar and hand percussion much of which was then treated through machines, producing their soft, insistent and rhythmic sound. The members of seminal Melbourne-based improvising experimental group Laughing Hands were Paul Schütze, Gordon Harvey, Ian Russell, and Paul Widdicombe. Their spectrally shaded instrumental post-punk-by-way-of-post-industrial constructs were effectively post-rock before the genre existed.  While the esoteric Eno-by-way-of-Dome post-punk instrumental constructs doled out across their two LPs are some of the most mesmerizing examples of this sort, their work on the tape-only releases finds them exploring a decidedly more shrouded, nocturnal, and formally abstract dimension of their universe. 

7 cd in cardboard sleeve enclosed in a 17cmx17cm cardboard box plus 12-page booklet. Limited edition 300 copies.
