Audika release 'Corn', a collection of nine previously unreleased Russell recordings from 1982 and 1983. Taken from the original Russell's original 1/4" tape masters, the songs are largely solo works with Russell providing cello, keyboards, rhythm machine programming, vocals, and production.

The album also features Mustafa Ahmed (percussion), Peter Zummo (trombone), and Rik Albani (trumpet). The songs were recorded between 1982's 24→24 Music (as Dinosaur L) and his 1983 works Tower of Meaning and Loose Joints' "Tell You Tooday".
