VOD138.03 Dok-U-Ment - Kum De Profundis 1982-1984 LP - limited 200 as stand-alone-release

Release-Date is early July

In late 1982 Jesse Last and Malcolm Smith, both from Cambridge Massachusetts, launched their pioneering electro-experimental-techno project called Dok-U-Ment also known az DOKUMENT PROJEKT..very heavly influenced by THROBBING GRISTLE, doing long inprov electronic pieces. With PTV/Monk hair cut ov a shaven head with a ponytail in the back  MALCOLM looked very much like Genisis older brother bearing the same black ring sunkin eyes.

They released a very limited self-produced tape which came on the radar by Sleep Chamber's John Zewizz. LThe Tape had only the fingerprint ov the index finger ov MALCOLM & JESSIE on the cover. Containg no other info.

JOHN ZEWIZZ met MALCOLM in 1982 and assisted him on Live Shows around the Boston area playing around 5 Live performances

IN 1983 ZEWIZZ reissued the tracks from the very limited first Tape in an edited and extended form on John's Label Inner X-Musick and changed the cover. (Zewizz also plays on 2 ov the trax playing Keyboards on INNER-X-MUSICK.cassettes)

One Track also got licensed to a Gut Level Music Compilation and two tracks were also part of the 84 Inner X-Musick Compilation 'the Oblique Collection'

After meeting GENESIS-P-Orrige in 1984 MALCOLM SMITH & JOHN ZEWIZZ became official PSYCHIC YOUTHS...part ov Genisis's TEMPLE OV PSYCHIC YOUTH Cult ov the Magickal use ov Blood & Kum. Also after meeting Genisis and spending time with him MALCOLM SMITH disolved DOKUMENT to join SLEEP CHAMBER in 1984.

DOKUMENT opened for SLEEP CHAMBER in 3 ov the 5 Live Performances.

Malcolm went on to a short lived project called "MASSMAN" witch played out once yet again (opening for SLEEP CHAMBER in 1985)

There iz a track on the Vinyl Compilation "DRASTIC PERVERSIONS" titled "Father ov Sin" (J.Zewizz on back vocals)

Even though DOKUMENT only existed for 2 and a half years they maintained a large Boston Industrial following. MALCOLM had a very aggressive personality and after only 1 appearence on WZBC he waz banned from being anywhere on their property.d.

Although the output of just about 10 officially released tracks isn't that big, the influence and quality of those tracks can't be ignored and deserves a release on VOD.
