Special Affect: The Original Soundtrack From album (1981) The Motion Piction "Too Much Soft Living" LP -- 1981 (Special Affect Music: 008028X) 4:06 Nuclear Gloom 2:09 Headache 2:26 Blondes On The Run 2:43 Nothing, Nothing 3:46 Too Much Soft Living 1:59 What Next 2:23 Clean Cut 2:53 Bruiser Boy 2:32 Unbreakable 2:50 Killjoy Interference 1:48 Let Go Notes: The legendary (?) Special Affect album, made possible by the creative talents of Marty Sorenson (Bass), Al Jourgensen (Guitar), Franke [sic] Nardiello (vocals), and Harry Rushakoff (Drums) (of Concrete Blonde!) with guest/backup vocals by somebody named Minerva. The album is billed as the soundtrack to a movie by the same name that nobody's ever heard of. At the time of the recording, Al was described by his band mates as "a hippie." They even said he auditioned for the group by jamming along with a Led Zeppelin album. You'd never guess that from listening to this album. It is pretty much standard new-wavey-garage-combo fare. The album was apparently released on Wednesday, June 10, 1981. Any other information is appreciated. Liner notes: All songs written, performed and arranged by Special Affect: Marty Sorenson, Al Jourgensen, Franke Nardiello, Harry Rushakoff. Guest starring Minerva, back-up vocals. Keyboard on "Nuclear Gloom" by Bill Wood. Produced by Martin E. Delaney. Recorded at Tanglewood Studios, Brookfield, Ill. Engineered by Larry Milas.

They were recorded in 1998 and 1999 as rough demos for a collaborative project with Groovie Mann. Unfortunately, the project was never completed. Nevertheless, these rough mixes are a testament to William's sonic brilliance and quirky sense of humor." The works in progress were rerecorded, mixed, and mastered by Groovie Mann with the help of Kaptain Dave Collins. Groovie Mann stated that "Dave Collins programmed and produced the Darling Kandie 'People next Door' project which he rescued from shambles after William's death and through Groovie's second breakdown or 3rd?"
