Re: Rituals: e7.001 (Environment 7) out April 2022

I struggled to get into this one but kept persisting and realized that the issue for me was that the first 3 tracks just didn't click. This is surprising as I was expecting to love Hopiate given the response to it by other people on the forum. Just goes to show that even if you don't like one of the...

Re: Rituals: e7.001 (Environment 7) out April 2022

Interesting that digital and CD are the same cost. I usually get the digital because of the shipping costs to Canada but looks like I will be getting a shiny new CD this time. Wonder if the cost will be the same on FSOLDigital.

Re: Fractional Difference - Exploring FSOL song-by-song

This was a great read Ross. The most interesting bit for me was the progression through the early radio shows into the ISDN shows. It was quite difficult to follow along with these in the 90s so I only really managed to catch the ones that were on the BBC and never revisited in the later years when ...

Re: Fractional Difference - Exploring FSOL song-by-song

Really loved this one and regret not picking up the vinyl at the time. I preferred Environmental to Environments 6 and 6.5, which I thought would have been better as a single album. I saw Archived as a 'From the Archives' best of and a a great entry point for anyone that hadn't kept up with the Arch...

Re: Fractional Difference - Exploring FSOL song-by-song

https://fractionaldifference.files.wordpress.com/2021/10/vpro.jpg ISDN VPRO Radio (09/09/94) [/quote] I was listening to this and noticed that the environment at 1:46:20 sounds like a slowed down version of "Sly" by Massive Attack. Not sure if the FSOL remix of this track ever saw the lig...

Re: Papua New Guinea : Best Remix?

The Nu:Tone remix was a good one.

Re: Fractional Difference - Exploring FSOL song-by-song

My first introduction to FSOL, as I imagine is the case for a lot of FSOL fans. I remember hearing it on Mark Goodier's Radio 1 Evening Session and being blown away by it. I also remember that questionable TOTPs appearance and the Future Shock video tape. I think the Apex Twin's Ageispolis video is ...

AA in the NME

Fairly brief interview in the NME promoting 'We Persuade Ourselves...'. Still tinkering with the Noel Gallagher album apparently.

Re: Fractional Difference - Exploring FSOL song-by-song

Pulse State sounds as good today as it did 30 years' ago. It also sounds like it was by a different group to the other tracks in the E.P.

Re: RSD 2021 Releases

Part 3 was the stand out part in my opinion. Listened to the remix EP and I can't hear the difference between the 7" Edit and the Oil Funk Remix. Not their finest moment but probably the reason why WHE was their highest charting single in the UK. Anyway, bring on RSD 2021!

Re: RSD 2021 Releases

I hadn't listened to the EP version of WHE for years until last night and forgot the Pt 1 is quite different from the album version. I didn't realize that the ending became part of 'Accompaniment For Melodious Expression' on Env 3. The remix EP is probably the only release by FSOL that I haven't lis...

RSD 2021 Releases

Releases for this year are 'World is Full of Plankton', 'Accelerator', and 'We Have Explosive'. The World is Full of Plankton is one of my favourite AA tracks and I think I read somewhere that an expanded We Have Explosive EP was coming. https://www.officialcharts.com/chart-news/record-store-day-202...

Re: FSOL - Music for Three Books / Music from Calendars

Interesting, some good tracks on the calendar album but other than Surrounding the Garden I probably listened to Dox 2, Petroleum, and track 5 from the 2018 calander the most. Third time out for Riverbed as well.

Re: FSOLDigital Calendar

Just flipped over to December in my AA calendar and wondering if there is any news of a 2021 calendar? I really look forward to getting these tracks every month, especially during these challenging pandemic times.

Re: RSD 2020 - Cascade 2020, We Persuade Ourselves... MPB Remixes, PNG (Weatherall Remix)

I bought Papua New Guinea on cassette when it came out and I hadn't ever listened to the full Weatherall remix version until just now. The cassette edit didn't really do it justice. Also, I only just noticed that Kooner and Burns are credited so does that mean that this was essentially the first Sab...
