Threads was the very first album recorded by Tim Story between 1978-1982. Originally set to be released in France on the pioneering ATEM Label, unfortunately due to that label's untimely demise it was never issued. It wasn't until a decade later in 1992, that it finally saw the light of day on Eurock Records. When the initial release was sold out in 1996, the decision was made to re-master the album. It was also decided to add as a bonus track the original version of the title track "Therthed by a Thread", which has a running time of 18:20. Employing the latest no-noise technology and Tim's studio skills, this reissue is in many ways a brand new album. Recorded in the pre-digital era, the use of new technology has now enhanced the sound, adding a rich new spectrum of tone colors that makes the music all the more provocative and entrancing.
The music itself is a wonderful fusion of delicate piano themes, dark electronic backdrops and playful, experimental compositions. Imagine if Erik Satie were alive today and had access to a synthesizer in addition to his piano.
