Is Mother Invisible?

Personnel: Gerard Greenway, Patrick Nevins, Ben Norland (associate)

One of CA's related groups, Is Mother Invisible? were active in 1981 and 1982. The work of the group is best described as the exploration of Spanner as governing creative principle in an attempt at Total Spannerism. Of paramount importance to the project was the astonishing musical personality of Patrick Nevins. With him, more than any other, have I felt closest to the primordial upsurge of Spanner, the pure plastic power of creative ineptitude.

Or ineptive creatitude.

Most of IMI's output exists on tape and perhaps we will summon the courage to upload a thing or two. Sadly lost are the legendary 'gargling blues' sessions -- which were exactly what the name implies. (Gerard)
