Just finished my first listen; the Zephyr Nova track manages to warp the original into some sort of Tim Burtonesque beautiful nightmare whilst recreating that complex bassline note for note! Also a big fan of Hermann's Squarepusher Theme cover; a cool liveish rendition. And I just love this cover of the Unreleased Acid Track by Acidburp; this one is a true gift as we don't even have a decent soundboard recording of the original!

 

I just threw this up on Discogs as well; add it to your collections http://www.discogs.com/release/3886361

 

PLEASE post this comp around and spread the word everyone!

Seriously, this is a wonderful compilation. I had some fears it might be not very SP-related (as often when it comes to covers) but this is really 100% accurate and lovingly done. Chapeau to the musicians behind it!

 

Let's think about some WATMM-crowd-funding to press this gem on proper black wax!

That's an idea that at least 100 of my $ could get behind!

 

Just wanted to come in here and say that I love the part in track two (Hermann's Squarepusher Theme cover) where the music cuts out and there is a bird interlude; wonderful!

Really, all the tracks on this comp are top notch. Being the sp fanboy I am, I was initially quite suspicious this would fail to meet my expectations, but I'm pleased you guys proved otherwise.

 

As as someone mentioned, zephyr really nailed the rotate electrolyte bassline.

 

edit: As a sidenote, I am really surprised that no one did a rendition of goodnight jade. I kind of wish I had done such, having already gotten the synth patch nailed in on my tx81 already. but alas ...

Indeed it was a fun job and well done to everyone :)

 

Thanks very much Goiter, those are very satisfying words to hear since I´ve been having doubts lately as to whether i liked my track at all any more. I guess I´d just listened to it too much ;)

 

I´m totally behind the idea of pushing for this album on proper sale! But unfortunately only in words, financially i absolutely nothing to give... All I could offer is maybe to submit a beer to the hard workers behind the scenes..?

So why not doing a crowd funding project? You can even talk to friends and ask if they would spend some money to make this possible.

 

There is even a a nice platform for this: http://www.kickstarter.com/

      Squarepusher’s sonic masterpiece and debut mind-melter of an LP Feed Me Weird Things returns, reissued on double vinyl for the first time since its release on the 3rd of June 1996. Originally released on Rephlex, Aphex Twin himself noted on the sleeve notes of the original that Squarepusher makes “sound like sound never sounded before… Squarepusher gives us the SOUND of SOUND.” Now released on Warp 25 years later, the original album has been remastered from the original DATs and features two extra tracks on a 10 which were first released on the B-side of the Squarepusher Plays… EP and later featured on the original Japanese release of this album. The edition also includes a 16 page booklet with personal photographs, ephemera and notes from Tom Jenkinson, giving us an insight into his early career and into a time of true experimentation and innovation during the mid-90s.
      To say it was ‘ahead of its time’ feels unsatisfactory, and almost chronologically inaccurate - the wild array of styles it blends makes Feed Me Weird Things seem to exist in a time and space continuum all of its own. Maybe there really were UFOs over Leytonstone?
      Using the nascent energy and wildly experimental drum programming of jungle as its main rhythmic driving force, Feed Me Weird Things is celebrated for the way it was able to blend and cross-pollinate genres so effectively. Jazz, instrumental dub, trip-hop, UK hardcore, ambient synthesis, seventies cop funk and even a kind of mangled bossa nova are all tied magically together, transcending into a sound uniquely his own.
      Without delving into the many highlights and moments on the record, it serves as both a snapshot of one of the most vital, experimental periods in the history of UK electronic music and how the young Tom Jenkinson was pushing the boundaries of electronic music, into something well and truly weird, feeding into the canon of electronic music that resonated on into that decade and beyond.
