I have almost all of it on vinyl. But, the Starethough EP is the best.

 

Quique works better as a CD. Fractured / Tied looks nice on 10" but it kind of sucks compared to their other stuff.

 

The album on Replex is more laid back & chill.. better than the Succour (Warp) which was kinda harsh IMO...

Listened to Succour for the first time a couple of days ago. Can't believe what I was missing!

I'll go out on a limb and say that "Succour" is one of the most important electronic albums of the 90's.

I definitely treasure this group and "Faults" shows they aren't resting on past glories either.

The side projects that spawned from them are all worth checking out too of course, Scala, Disjecta and Mark Van Hoen's work

as Locust is superb.

Nothing since has sounded quite like Succour. One can definitely hear the progression from Quique to Faults away from more 'drone' oriented guitar-scapes (with the exception of Ch-Vox). The newer productions have a more static-burst aesthetic. I look forward to the new album.

 

A rare Seefeel track from a 1990s comp...

Gonna bump/hijack this thread a little here.

 

Seeing as I've been on a Cocteau Twins rampage of late, I stumbled across a few EPs today, one of which is the 1995 "Otherness" EP (I'd never heard of it, but it has "Cherry-Coloured Funk", so I couldn't pass on it).

 

 

..ANYWAY, turns out it's produced by Mark Clifford (of Seefeel), and it's dead-on Seefeel throughout.

Very lush indeed, and I cannot think of a more perfect pairing of sounds/artists.

Yes! It's a spellbinding release and still the only officially commissioned electronic 'remixes' of the Cocteau Twins. Mark Clifford really nailed the style!

 

Anyone heard Mark Clifford's 'Blue Fi 1'? One of the most beautiful pieces of music.

I want to know how he made it.

 

When I listen to the 'Blue-Fi's it sounds as though Mark was still perfecting the granulated scratch-guitar sound that would be so heavily employed on the 2011 eponymous album.

Interesting album; very raw sounding. I need to give it some more listens though. Interestingly they collaborated on the 'Pin Skeeling' EP tracks even before these tracks were purportedly produced.

Love me some Seefeel! Nothing better to relax to. :)

 

And Seefeel got me into Cocteau Twins, for which I'm eternally grateful. HTRK doesn't go astray either, they're very much Seefeel-ish.

So it looks like Seefeel are playing live this Friday August 26th on NTS Radio.14.00-15.00 BST. This gif was posted:

Oh, I do hope so. One of the great regrets with Warp, in my opinion. Last I checked, they were off the official roster.

I really love the most recent album, proper sleazy groovy stuff.

Is Scotch Egg still in the band?

 

Picked up Quique at a 2nd hand record fair last month, £15 and its MINT.
