Sometime during the fall semester of university studies at San Francisco State Univeristy in 1982, the instructor of a painting class gave Joseph B. Raimond an assignment that would forever alter the artistic course of DWM. What came out of the assignment was a work that would prove to be the beginning not only of one of the trademark styles of Raimond's graphic work over the next two decades, but also one that would lend itself to Raimond's ceramic work and later, would even encompass a series of recordings and writings.

Raimond's first book, this is a collection of poems taken mainly from song lyrics that he wrote for both DWM as well as his former live band, Something To Burn. 120 pages in length, this features Raimond's typical cyncial-doomsday style mixed with a heavy dose of humour. Released to coincide with an exhibition of Edges paintings and ceramics at the Nachbarschaftshaus in Nuernberg.

Title: Edges 1 & 2

Label: Hand-made Format: CD-R Catalog #: Make Ten (MT-371) Release Date: April 21st, 1999

The first installment of a series of "Edges" releases, a series of recordings using abrupt, random and uncontrolled methods of composition. Musique Concrete, triggered analog synthesizers, and sampling, the Edges series are meant to augment not only the book of the same name by Joseph B. Raimond, but also the ongoing series of paintings and ceramic works that he has been working on for the last twenty years. Not easy listening, to say the least. Features a hand cut, puzzle cover and tray card utilizing the angular effect of the Edges graphic motif to full effect. Music and art by Joseph B. Raimond and Jeandra Raimond.
