Formed in 1976 in Brixton, a multicultural, and - at the time - down-at-heel part of south London, This Heat were born into a music scene in rapid flux, first thanks to the punk explosion and then via new wave and it's myriad offshoots into pop, rock and art-rock.

But while many sought to apply punk attitude to chart-friendly sounds, This Heat were concocting some of the most experimental ideas ever committed to tape, taking influence from musique concrÞte, krautrock, the burgeoning industrial scene and even the dub reggae blasting out in their home borough.

Recorded from 1979 - 1980 Repeat/Metal is essentially This Heat's third proper album, although it was released posthumously in 1993. Arguably their most radical work, Repeat/Metal features side-length tape experiments ranging from the dubby drum loops of "Repeat", a 20 minute edit/reworking of their landmark piece "24 Track Loop", to the gamelan-inspired sounds of "Metal", an electro-acoustic work recorded outside of their studio, Cold Storage, and helmed by member Gareth Williams
