FSOL Wiki

PostFri Jan 26, 2018 10:13 pm

As some of you may know, I've been working on a FSOL Wiki. It's far from finished (to say the least), but the aim is to get all the information from my old website up there over the course of the year, not to mention all the new information Pande has dug up over recent years.

Anyway, the only complete page so far is the forthcoming releases one, which is hilariously long.

I'll be adding content on a regular basis from now, and once I get the 403 error that keeps popping up sorted out I'll hopefully be able to sort the layout and templates out too.

Nice work! If they release the Humanoid and the AA albums this year then I will be a happy man.

Right, I still haven't gotten around to sorting the formatting out at all, but rather than let layout issues get in the way, I'm getting the bulk of the information up now. First up, two pre-Humanoid releases.

I need to get some of those nice little infobox templates for the cover/details and a discog at the bottom, and need to work out how to add images, all of which is going totally above my head at the minute. All the mediawiki guides I can find seem to be aimed at somebody who is about 20 years of experience ahead of me.

I am so sick of the word Humanoid.

I would love to see Global get re-released/finished, and excludes all the Peter Black crap.

Yeah, it'd be interesting to know how it would have sounded had Brian taken control. That said, I think the label were pushing for a more soulful house sound which probably guided even the existence of Tonight. But I'd love to hear the version of that with Gaz singing either way.

Well at least we're getting a new Humanoid album at some point!

Indeed - the first 'proper' one!

Right, I've finished up the '80s Humanoid releases, onto proper FSOL stuff tomorrow!

A bunch of 1991 releases today.
Art Science Technology - A.S.T.
Yunie - I Can See for Miles
Mental Cube - Mental Cube
Mental Cube - So This is Love
Mental Cube - Q
Candese - You Took My Love

Just want to throw out a huge thanks to Pandemonium, whose thread has been invaluable when putting this all together, both for collating all the info I had on my site in one place, and for combining it with various new finds and snippets. There's a note on the front page crediting him for much of the site's content.

Awesome stuff. I like the narrative thread, and seeing how they both got to where they were.

Thanks - I find that’s a more interesting and satisfying way of approaching the pages, rather than simple dry descriptions of the music. I’m a huge fan of chronology in music, and any release becomes immediately more fascinating in context of the releases either side of it. Glad you’re enjoying it!
