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

I miss being a teenager and legitimately being able to hole up in my bedroom and just engage with music for hours. Oof, tell me about it. I remember being in my teens and listening to absolutely anything FSOL-based on repeat, bootlegs of 45 minute excerpts of Kiss FM broadcasts without any actual F...

That's it! I had a feeling it was Blackhill Transmitter but never got around to going deeper to find it. Nice spot!

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

Btw. I always thought the "breath environment" is a snoring horse recorded :) anything known about the sample origin? I'll have to ask Brian, it's so weird. And yes, Archive 5 is the most Dead Cities-esque, the first four tracks are early '97 pieces, effectively the start of The Isness bu...

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

A casualty of it being edited I suppose! It does appear on two official releases, however: that Wipeout track is on the Semtex 12”, and Part 4 from the single is very similar, only with added synth pads (this is also the version heard on the live transmissions). As always, glad to read that you’re e...

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

Interesting, it's definitely similar. I don't think that's related to the remix, but it could well have been something they took from the stems sent over (the same way a bit of the Curve remix ended up in Environments).

Dead Cities

I'll do a track-by-track later, that took ages. Tell you what, though, that's the most I've enjoyed that album in years. After going through all the '93-'95 stuff it's so fresh and different.

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

Apparently Richard Branson was very unhappy with the old Virgin art being used, that hadn't been the logo since - I think - 1977, but the band demanded it.

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

I would imagine it would have been promo-only, I can't be sure exactly where it was sent, mind you. There are plenty of promos that are a bit baffling like that.
