SS-Say made their live debut at the William S. Burroughs visit “Last Chance” in Copenhagen, Denmark, in October 1983. At this event the band was featuring vocalist Lena Walsh who was replaced by the new singer Inge Shannon during the spring of 1984. Originally the Fusion 12″-single was planned to be a full album but in the last minute two recordings were left out (one untitled track and the later Martin Hall recording “Deep Inside Me” featured on his 1986 album Cutting Through). Inge Shannon and Martin Hall had previously worked together in the cult project Pesteg Dred back in 1981. Alongside third member Per Hendrichsen the group recorded Years of Struggle against the Lies, the Stupidity and the Cowardice, an album that wasn’t released at the time due to financial hardship. In 1985, however, the title was released as a bonus music cassette in 1985 with Danish art magazine Atlas #1. Furthermore a limited vinyl edition of the album was released in the United States in 2010, receiving great international acclaim. During the years SS-Say’s reputation has grown far beyond its native origins. Particularly the track “Care” has become an underground club classic in both Europe and in the United States – apparently because a French DJ kept playing it at the New York club The Batcave during the 90’s. In 2011 the song was featured as the opening track on the American Minimal Wave compilation lp and cd The Hidden Tapes. [Source]
