Pete Shelley's first solo album, Sky Yen, is comprised of solo electronic recordings that he made in 1974 but didn't release until 1979. In other words, it's a curiosity for devoted fans, especially since the primitive, droning electronics recall Krautrock, not punk rock. However, the timing of its release was quite curious, since within two years, Shelley would return to electronics for his official solo career.
