Gaz interview on Van der Graaf Generator website

A nice interview with Jim Christopulos, which focuses a lot on Amorphous's work with VdGG member Peter Hammill on the Immortal single, but also touches quite heavily on the history of FSOL, the group's work on the Noel Gallagher album and how heavily it affected Gaz's confidence - which in turn led ...

Re: Dead Cities 2LP reissue

Recordstore.co.uk are apparently offering a version with a limited edition lithograph print. No idea what this is a print of, but here's the link for those who are interested.

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

That edit was used as a theme tune to some youth programme on the BBC - it was licensed to the compilation without permission, which is probably why it ended up under a different alias. One of many similar occurrences that led to Brian suing Westside for breach of contract and him ending up with the...

Re: Enofa - Shattered Infrastructure out now

https://f4.bcbits.com/img/a4233422275_16.jpg The Shattered Infrastructure EP came out a couple of weeks ago. Four more slices of ambient house with a '90s feel. These tracks came from early sessions for my next album. The album headed off in a very different direction, so these four orphans have a ...

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

I've done a brief overview of Bacteria From a Baboon's Stomach, and a look at the release of Stakker Humanoid. Doing a track-by-track for the Stakker single tomorrow.

Re: The Amorphous Androgynous - Listening Beyond the Head Chakra

When asked if Head Chakra was coming this year on Facebook, Gaz responded: Doubt it - it’s timing is organic dependent on its build through the various singles and steps you understand ? ( I like this - it’s a celebration of being an independent artist reacting and adapting rather than the corporate...

Re: FSOL on Wipeout 2048?

Yeah, social media has numerous positive and negative aspects, but the one thing that I dislike most - on a personal level - is the way it's come to dominate things, to the extent that for some people, the internet is social media. I hate that on so many levels, and I miss the days when, if you were...

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

Yeah, Pande has a lot of real life concerns that put this kind of indulgence on the back seat. Luckily (or not) I have more free time so I'm happy to use some of it for this. I had a feeling you'd be happy about it!

Re: RSD 2021 Releases

It's from the WHE sessions. Most notably it uses the same buzzing synth that is the lead synth in Explosive.

It appears on a compilation. Can't remember which off hand.

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

And you were bang on with the guess.... It was indeed the final 15min track of S:X One Improvisations (Minimally Conscious - no idea why I thought it was just symbols), less beat-y than my memory remembered but just as epic sounding. Like an entire warehouse full of analogue gear spurting sound aro...

Re: FSOL on Wipeout 2048?

The Facebook group has some ok stuff, and FB in general is alright, but there is a lot of people posting a song and liking it, or news posts with people saying "what is this?!" when there's detailed information about the release one post down. There's a much more casual approach to it which is a ver...

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

If you’re ok to leave the Galaxial part of the site there for the moment that’d be great - there’s actually some stuff in there I don’t have backed up anywhere at the moment (particularly the interviews!) If you need the space I can copy it all down somewhere though. 10 minute epic closing track? No...

Fractional Difference - Exploring FSOL song-by-song

It's been seven years since my Second Thought site went offline, and three since I accidentally buggered up the Wiki, and I have no place to document my thoughts on FSOL. Moreso, there isn't anywhere online that has a detailed, up-to-date discography of everything they've done. The best at the momen...
