THEE HYPHEN is the solo project of Celluloide's keyboardist aka Member U-0176. If "Consolidated Green" (released in 2004) is to date the only Thee Hyphen’s record included in BOREDOMproduct label's catalogue, the very first album by Thee Hyphen was however recorded ten years earlier, in 1994. "Incidental Tool of Confusion" (originally released on cassette and CD-R only), already had the seeds of those electro-infected pop songs in it, some of which - like "This aching Kiss" - would end up on Celluloide's records a few years later.
This debut album has just benefited from a complete restoration work from the original 4-track analog tapes: the sound has been cleaned up and remastered, the vocals got rid of the original effects to gain more clarity, and today "Incidental Tool of Confusion" is being offered in the quality and shape that ot was meant to be!.
On second thought, back then Thee Hyphen was maybe too cold to be pop, too pop to be electro, too experimental to be EBM and too EBM to be darkwave, with its unconventional rhythmics, its instrumental tracks and melodies that you can imagine more than you can actually hear. What if the planets finally aligned to allow a new chapter in Thee Hyphen’s history, to be written thanks to "Incidental Tool of Confusion"? This amazing album comes with a remixed version of "Into Dirt" as a bonus track and is now being made available on CD for the very first time!
