Decomposing is one of the treasures in the Nash the Slash discography. It includes perhaps his most loved song, Womble, the iconic status of which was confirmed when Trevor Jackson included it on his Metal Dance release for Strut RecordsThree other (de)compositions round out the release, each as excellent as Womble, and each with a personality of its own.

The original 12" was released in 1981, when Nash claimed that it was the first record ever playable at three speeds: 33, 45, and 78 RPM. The original release is extremely rare, having been issued only by Nash's own independent label Cut-Throat, and, unlike other early Nash releases, never licensed to Europe.

The Artoffact Records reissue is fully remastered and is available on both black and collector yellow vinyl. The fantastic decomposing sheet music cover has been lovingly restored.

On the CD version, fans will find the album repeated three times, once at each vinyl speed, capturing the original 12" concept in high-definition, digital audio for the first time ever.

This particular track has been played at 33 rpm. ...from the sleeve notes: "This is the first album playable at any speed. Being all-instrumental music, there are no voices to affect the realism of the orchestrations. Thus the album becomes a collection of electronic concertos, each movement being defined by the speed of the turntable. A turntable with speeds of 33, 45 and 78 rpm, creates a different ratio within the pieces, yet maintains a familiar melodic drama." The track listing of the mini album...
