Interview with Kurt Ralske from Ultra Vivid Scene by Ian Gittins – April 14th, 1990.
The Mercy Seat is still a fine record and Vaughan Oliver’s execution of the design/photography on these records up there with his best work. There’s a great archive of the record artwork here http://quimby.gnus.org/html/group/ultravividscene.html
I haven’t thought of UVS for years apart from when I hear the Jonny Cash version of Nick Cave’s The Mercy Seat. These days Kurt has re-invented himself as an visual artist and lives in New York City.
