Beat studio guru Mike Mangino (Pink Noise, Pop-Tarts) and Chris Shepard (Pop-Tarts) formed Smersh as an experimental big-beat techno/industrial project and began releasing cassettes in 1981. Smersh recorded improvised cuts every Monday night, released countless cassettes on their own label, Atlas King, and were featured on more compilations than you can track down. They never played live, never played the same track more than once.

The sound is a lush hybrid of techno, industrial, dance, and experimental.. Sometimes easy, sometime not... As Mr Mutant said : Dance music for cyborgs on acid! YES!!!

Here is the First two Lp releases from 1986..
