Maurizio Bianchi (1955, Italy) is one of the pioneers of industrial music. His first music releases were under the banner of Sacher-Pelz in 1979. Since 1980 he works under his own name, sometimes abbreviated to MB, gaining a large group of followers and enthusiasts. His first active music period was from 1979-1983, after which he became a Jehova Witness and declared “The end is very near, and we have a very short time to recognize our mistakes and to redeem ourselves… I stopped doing music, and now my life is going towards its full awareness”. After a long hiatus he started making music again in 1998.

Gene-X was originally self released by MB on cassette in 1982.
This is the first vinyl publication of Gene-X with original artwork by MB.

Instrumentation used: Turntable with loops derived from a vinyl record driven by a needle.
