Lifeforms Paths
-Path 1
-Path 2
-Path 3
-Path 4
-Path 5
-Path 6
-Path 7
-Radio Edit
-Alternative Radio Edit
-Radio Edit 3

And, to round out the Lifeforms era before moving on, two compilation tracks from June 1994:
-Bring Me Home
-Deep Into Your Subconscious I Slide


And with that, Lifeforms is done. A run which started with the first Kiss Test Transmission back in September 1992, three and a half months ago my time. I'm actually really looking forward to the change of pace coming with ISDN.

Kiss FM '94
Also made changes to New York to reflect the realisation that it was broadcast in November, not May.

Yeah, I go through spells of inspiration, and other days when I can't face it!

-Smokin Japanese Babe
-You're Creeping Me Out
-Eyes Pop - Skin Explodes - Everybody Dead
-It's My Mind That Works
-Dirty Shadows
-Tired
-Egypt
-Are They Fightin Us
-Hot Knives
-A Study of Six Guitars
-An End of Sorts

And to round out 1994:
-Apollo 440 - Liquid Cool (Future Sound of London Remix)


1995 up next, which should take considerably less time, with only 9 new tracks, two releases, three transmissions, a video and a soundtrack to cover.

Have the guys ever mentioned where that sample right at the end came from, or whether it was a recording they'd made? Somehow is both completely out of place and yet closes the album perfectly !

Nah, you can hear a longer version of it on VPRO, it sounds like a live recording, but who knows what of. Shazam can't find it.

Art Futura Festival, Barcelona, October 1995.


And that's it for 1995, a very quiet year.
