Reissue of the debut album by Eleven Pond. Long sought after by collectors, the Rochester, NY band only released a single LP in their time together before dissolving into obscurity. Their sound - a merging of post punk, dark dance and synthpop full of melodic arrangements - reflected the originality of gifted songwriters who met in art school with a shared interest in 4AD and Factory Records. In cooperation with the band members, the entire album has been remastered from the original 2-track analogue masters by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The recordings on this release comprise the band’s entire recorded output and the LP includes a 2009 redesign by Jeff Gallea of Eleven Pond: 11×11 cardstock lyrics/artwork sheet, 2 Eleven Pond postcards and 1 Dark Entries Sticker. Eleven Pond officially parted ways in 1987 but nearly a quarter-century later these recordings prove how vital they remain.
