Mauve Sideshow — Meet Me in the Wasteland
(Ventricle cd-03, 1993, CD)

by Henry Schneider, Published 1994-10-01

Meet Me in the Wasteland Cover artMeet Me in the Wasteland is the latest and final musical chapter of Treva (voice, electronics) and Dusty Lee (Mellotron, keyboards, sound collage). Like their self titled CD of two years previous, Meet Me in the Wasteland delivers more of their trippy cosmic industrial imagery. Dark, abstract, and eerie, Mauve Sideshow composes electronic music like no one else these days. Dusty Lee's Mellotron washes and Treva's sing-song recitations take you on a journey through a strange and blasted landscape. This music is a perfect companion to William Hope Hodgson's fantastic journey into the far distant future nightmare world of The Night Land. Wrapped forever in impenetrable night, the dying earth spins on through eternity and Mauve Sideshow is there to guide you "safely" home through time and space.
