"Here Comes Sickness" is a very particular work, not only because it sums up many years of music, but also because it showcases most of the different music styles that Gerstein has been wandering through during his lifetime.
Gerstein has always been eclectic and those who followed him since the beginning are surely aware of this. In his own words Gerstein says: "My vision of music began under the experimental flag, and blending industrial, piano suites, ballads, noise and electronic has been my way of experimenting with sounds and emotions".
Ten out of the fifteen tracks included on "Here Comes Sickness" are unreleased and they have been resting in Gerstein's closets for too long, so they were compiled for this collection. The other few songs originally appeared on a compilation and a very limited tape release.
From the melancholy of "Warmth" and "There's Something On My Back" to the rage of "The Puke They Are" and "Addicted", from the happiness of "Bright Light, Bright Life" to the electronic trips of "Go Spread Some" and "Cosmic Waves" you can always feel Gerstein's touch.
Afe will take care of releasing some of Gerstein's latest tunes at a later date, in the meantime enjoy "Here Comes Sickness".
