This Deadbeat mag review dates from May 1984 and is for Dundee's electronic whizz kids, Altres. This was a 7 track demo cassette called "Rise" that they released on their own label, Multi-Purpose Productions. It was something a bit different from the usual alternative rock & pop the fanzine covered, Altres making dreamy hypnotic synth based instrumentals. The tape did get a thumbs up from the reviewer though, and reckoned there may be a future for them in TV soundtracks!
The cassette was available to purchase from Rockpile, JJ Records and Grouchos. Or you could have have got it direct from Kevin himself.

  1. TV documentary themes? So that's where we went wrong! Wish I'd seen this 27 years ago...

    To hear a recording of our first gig at the Tayside Bar in 1983 (previously mentioned here) and for some more up-to-date tracks, visit our Soundcloud page. More info at
