Before Rob Deacon was the instiguator of the famous « Volume » series, he was, in the mid 80’s, involved in the « Abstract Magazine » project. So far i know, there was just only 2 exclusive compilation that were pressed, number 5 and … number 6 (!). The principle was to propose exclusive and specifically recorded tracks for these compilation. Here is a panel from some bands who were active in 1985 plus an unlisted secret track recorded by In The Nursery. But if more informations needed, i’ve included the complete magazine in this post.
