In 1986, Black Tape For A Blue Girl's darkly mesmerizing debut The Rope appeared on the underground rock scene. It kicked off a rich and diverse musical career for Projekt founder / Blacktape songwriter Sam Rosenthal. Now 25 years later, Projekt celebrates this momentous anniversary with ‘The Rope 25’ – coming with the debut in carefully remastered soundquality plus including a 2nd disc of reinterpretations by Erik Wøllo, All My Faith Lost..., Attrition, Mirabilis, Lux Interna, Rajna… Also included is BTFABG’s own re-recording of the album opener "Memory, Uncaring Friend", turning this classic track into a driving rock song, equal parts Bauhaus, Gary Numan and a darkly-caffeinated Sinatra. "Working with Brian of the Dresden Dolls on drums and guitar," Rosenthal says, "we captured the song as I would have performed it if live in '86. It's aggressive, brash, tense and loud! All elements that a song about betrayal and self-destruction require. Athan Maroulis' vocals reflect back to Oscar's performance while giving the song new drama and immediacy." Other equally innovative reinterpretations include All My Faith Lost's neo-classical "The Rope," Mirabilis' haunting a capella "The Floor was hard but Home," Lux Interna's neo-folk "We return," Attrition's dark, electronic "Memory, uncaring Friend," and Erik Wollo's electronic/ soundtracky "Within these Walls."  A poignant moment is when Walter Holland re-works the original multi-track recording of "Seven Days til Sunrise," as this track features the clarinet of his late musical partner Richard Watson from the band Amber Route. Hand-picked and sequenced by Rosenthal, this second disc looks back at The Rope while projecting the songs into modern times.
