Here it is, great site.

 

Where did those songs come from? I don't believe a lot of those are on any albums.

Trails, Gann, Time Apple, Seven Forty Seven,

Proper Necrobump but was looking for the person/company that did the 'Geogaddi' version of their site ('Atomless' by the way, doesn't look like he's done anything since 2005) and came across this thread which then lead to that early EHX site ( http://web.archive.org/web/19981203100730/www.ednet.co.uk/~ehx/main.htm )

 

Reading now it has a couple of interesting tidbits which I don't think ever came to light. Oddly their DOB also seems to be completely different to the profile on Wikipedia and the Fredd-E/Boc Pages site -

 

Collaborations now under way with Mike Paradinas and Chris Morris (Yes, Brass Eye, Day Today, Blue Jam); to be released in the new year

Planned 8mm 5 section film, to accompany their recent recordings in the summer of 1998, to be released in 1999 thru Music70. Prequels will be shot in 2019

Interesting to think they were nearly a Planet Mu signing:

 

Mike Paradinas, JOCKEY SLUT, April/May 1998:

" I'm into what they do, in fact I actually tried to sign them to my label. The album sounds like a 70's wildlife documentary. That's a good compliment to pay them. They've definitely listened to the last Autechre album for the crunchy drums and the more minimal melodies. a lot of electronic music concentrates on the beats but they have very strong melodies instead. They use a 101 a lot but they make it sound good in the way Aphex does, rather than say The Shamen. Track 10, 'Roygbiv' is my favourite. "

and have any of these live sets ever been found? :

supported Autechre, Panasonic and Cylob in July of 1996

 

1997 saw their second support slot with Autechre and headlined at Versivo, Manchester (the Skam Club) in February. Their live repertoire soon became a talking point, with their continued use of video shows derived from 8mm film.

 

the summer of 1997 saw them play alongside Autechre at the Phoenix festival in Stratford-Upon-Avon and the Sunflower festival in Munich with Mike Paradinas.

 

BoC played live at the opening night of "blech" in London run by Warp, on 31/10/1997.

They even came to Switzerland with Autechre in 96 during a mini tour. Probably the same tour? Wish I could've been there but I was like 1 year old so that would've been quite difficult to pull off.
