About Pete Um

Pete Um, a breeder of horses whose music has been described as the sort of thing that sounds wrong whatever speed you play it at, had already created a proud number of tracks scattered over a series of CD-Rs, a 7“ and a Split LP, when he happened to run into the talent scouts of Gagarin Records in a small pub of his hometown Cambridge. The fateful encounter set the clock ticking for a release but it would be five years before the essence of Um’s vast output was distilled into a flock of 18 tracks that now dazzle silvery on this very record. The sleeve of „No Pressure“ was created by Antwerp’s infamous punk painter Dennis Tyfus and printed in phosphor green, gold and bronze on thick cardboard – a measure that nearly went beyond the scope of the budget.
