So much so that most people just didn't get it or outright hated it back then. I took time for people's personal contexts to finally make this relevant.

 

But it can be mind-blowing at any time. Now is as good a time as any.

spanners is probably one of my favorite albums in the past 20 years... my wife introduced this to me way back in the day!

Pot Noddle and Nommo are two of my favourite tracks in electronic music.

I mind Spanners bootleg doing the rounds on Cassette Tape months before its release. It sounded INCREDIBLE even then but it was what you came to expect from the original 3 headed dog.. everything they touched even if it were only andy and ed, turned to gold.. their remixes were even the dogs bollix.. I mind reading about their split in the once cool magazine that was Musik and couldnt believe it, devistated! Music for adverts surprisingly was not up to the standard and again surprisnly the Plaid boys came up tops with not for 333s.. however even today the Plaid material is great and I love their work but they are missing that something special from back in the days and I dont think its Ken as they managed to capture the magic again on the last 2 soundtracks.. who knows what scintilli will deliver.. hoping its a beauty!

wow I just got that, the black dog had three members so that's why the cover is as it is. :fail: I feel stupid now

So was not for threes an overt way of saying "f u ken" ?

and double figure? open for interpretation i guess... although it was claimed in an interview preceeding the not for 333s album that it was something to do with an emergency number that would/or would not? be dialed within hospitals!? a little known fact: spanners was going to be titled Arcanus Electrus!

No. "Not for Three's" (i heard) is a medical term, basically meaning that a patient is not to be resuscitated in the event of death.. or something like that.

i also remember reading Ed saying something like if NF3's wasn't received well and went tits up that they were just going to pack it all in and get regular jobs.

so then the title would make sense. in that if NF3's bombed, they weren't going to be 'resuscitated' in any way and try again. no more Plaid/ Black Dog, or anything, i guess.

maybe they would have just been session muscians, or only producers... or travelled in Bjorks' band forever. or all 3. i doubt they'd have done office jobs. :)

 

i don't think the title is really aimed at Ken. but i dunno. i don't know anybody who actually knows or would speak about why Ed and Andy ever left Black Dog in the first place........

omg. are you serious? - Spanners!! definitely.

Silenced doesn't come ANY where NEAR close to the brilliance of Spanners and the genius of the original Black Dog trio, imo.

Silenced is extremely good, but comparing it to Spanners? Come on now son, come on.

it's gonna be 25 years old next week, and it STILL sounds good for it's time. My top tracks would have to be Further Harm (which REALLY sounds like Plaid written all over it), Nommo, Pot Noddle and the beautiful ambient finale, Chesh

An all-time Warp classic top-five album for me, for sure. There are definitely some lesser moments for me personally, but the greatness overall makes it so worth revisiting the whole that I actually appreciate the few downtimes in between. The first 20 minutes especially, culminating in that Psil-cosyn track is worth it, alone. Shit blew my 17-year old mind back in the day, and still does it for me when I revisit it from time to time now.
