In the 1986, several people happened together and proceed to jam
in their Philadelphia cave. Not a group of people getting together
for the purpose of fame and fortune, but rather an experiment in
spirit, mind and body. The spontaneous get-togethers are a
strange thing to try n' explain....
The band of minstrels becomes known as the Electric Slugs. As
Electric Slugs leave glistening trails, the organizational side of
the team formed Glistening Trail Records. After some
the Force became stronger... and Glistening Web Communications
Corporation, whose sole purpose is to help mankind, was formed.
The First Internet Record Company
Though the history of the world wide web is muddy,
it appears through the murk that Glistening Trail Records was
the first record company to create internet albums. In 1994,
seven albums where released. Their album covers are web addresses.
The music was distributed over the internet, and because of bandwidth
and browser restrictions made available on
cassette, cd, CDROM, and mini-disc
at low cost or for free.
The concept of the internet album is a bit bizarre... it can change
with the times. The following list contains the original

1995 brought many new information-age-music-projects, like
Industrial Noize Pollution,
The Soul Receptacles,
Crond and many more... but,
the most interesting development of the year was

The Labyrinth was
soon to follow... and the revolution grew strong.
Still, ASCAP and others did not
acknowledge our existence.
Early in the next year, work started on the multimedia project
Killin' Me and the sound collection called
Smokin' Blue Grass.
Since the amount of memory required to store all
these projects was getting out-of-control, additional CDROM burners
and players were put to work to create a ROM
for on the internet.
Others were catching on to the activity at The
Membrane Domain. Outsiders were welcomed and turned into insiders...
a CDROM Jukebox was turned on...
Pandora's RomBox was born.

on CDROM Volume I. Then
CDROM Volume II filled up in a hurry.

The meaning to the archives can be found by exploring the

It was time for sum sort-a scientifical hypothesis at this point.
So called, "Serious Testing" needed to be documented and
Acoustics of the Chaos Theory came to life.

The third project undertaken by Glistening Flicks was unwrapped:
for the Living Dead. The songs delving deeper into the
sound of the sound and the harshness of reality
were put together as an Industrial Noize
Pollution project entitled Caustic
Acoustics. The songs delving deeper into the
meaning of the sound and the beauty of reality were combined
to form The Snake Handling Immortal Tongue Speakers'
RomBox Paradox... and quite
a Pandora's RomBox it is turning out to be... old time rock n'
rollers (like Carl Gardner and
The Beatles) and a member of the original Bob Marley Band
