During the mid to late 1960s the Modern Music Centre in London welcomed hundreds of aspirant hopefuls through its doors at 86 Turnham Green Terrace in Chiswick. Over seventy acetates at least on the studio's own label are known to exist but the fact that few have ever been released has ensured the studio remains a largely forgotten venture. Its relatively prolific output of discs however has enabled a most entertaining expedition with Faces From The Dark, from singular beat to unhinged psychedelia, amidst a good measure of fuzz our frazzles. The Henchmen

Faces From The Dark is a CD only compilation featuring 28 tracks (of which only 3 have been previously released) and all have been restored to the best possible standards. The CD is housed in a wallet with a 64 page booklet.
