A vinyl-reissue of 'Event Horizon', the 1982 album by Arthur Russell with his cult group The Necessaries. Criminally neglected for 35 years, its scarcity on vinyl has caused it to evade even his most diehard fans and its relative obscurity has rendered it largely unknown, even amongst Arthur acolytes. Arthur wrote songs, sung backings and played keys and cello in this new wave/power pop quartet. Fronted by the muscular guitar of lead singer Ed Tomney, the band was rounded out by Ernie Brooks (The Modern Lovers) on bass and drummer Jesse Chamberlain (ex-Red Crayola). The record was produced by the legendary Bob Blank and also featured the pulsing trombone of Peter Zummo.
