The Future Sound of London - Cascade 2020 (RSD release)


Recommended Posts

Ten track release taking the original track and re-recording it, expanding it, and creating new pieces loosely based on the same theme and atmosphere. The last two RSDs have seen My Kingdom and Yage receive the same treatment to largely successful results, be really interested to see how they reapproach something from the Lifeforms era.

As with the past few FSOL RSDs, it's very likely this will receive an expanded CD / digital release a few weeks down the line, which I'll be waiting for as it'll be cheaper, have more material, and not be split down the middle in a way that really doesn't work with FSOL.

Yeah I'll wait for the CD, the last two releases had bonus tracks not on the vinyls.  They're gonna break my wallet this year.  Who wants to buy a PS4?

Cascade blew my mind on release, it was so different and so advanced compared to Accelerator, instantly made them my favourite group, I couldn’t wait for Lifeforms to be released. Wondering how they will tackle this redo, can’t see them topping the original single with all it’s parts

Dang, I’m hyped. Any plans for this to get FSOL Digital released sooner, since RSD is cancelled?

So when's this out then?  FSOL's previous reimaginings of their Dead Cities tracks (Yage, My Kingdom) were brilliant.  It's great to see them going back to Lifeforms this time.

Yeah I’ve actually been refreshing the FSOLdigital page over the last couple days.

CD, LP and digital versions available now. LP and digitals of the Amorphous Immortal Remixes there too.

FSOLDigital is struggling with traffic again though... which is odd as this never used to happen on release day.

Snagged these despite the lagging website. Early morning listening sorted...

Excellent!  But are you kidding, fsoldigital is the slowest website on the internet.  It's like it's being hosted on one of Brian and Gaz's old synths.

Cascade 2020 is vey good. A bit darker than the original ep, but lots of sounds harking back to 1993. 
 

I love how FSOL continues to create branches on their own family tree. So exciting to travel with them.

      Every time there's a new release there's normally a fair bit of discussion in the relevant thread, so I thought it was about time to start a general FSOL thread. Also, I just started a new blog called Fractional Difference, in which I'll be going through every release and song, in order, and looking at various things... all the facts, connections with other tracks, and my own personal feelings about them. It's going to take forever (they released 180 tracks on the launch of FSOLDigital alone), but I'm quite looking forward to revisiting the whole catalogue over the next however long it takes.
      So far I've done an About page which explains my discovery of the band and running the various fan sites I have over the years, a discography page which I'll fill in with links as the project goes along, and I've done a couple of entries, for Bacteria From a Baboon's Stomach and the original release of Stakker Humanoid.
      Hopefully will be getting a few stories, bits of trivia and pics from Brian over the course of it to spice it all up.
      Anyway, the blog is here if anybody fancies following: https://fractionaldifference.wordpress.com/
      And, in terms of general discussion, this is still my all-time favourite piece of music:
      Weird that it hasn't changed for nearly 25 years.

      Copypasting this from my FSOL news page...
      This year, Record Store Day partially follows the pattern of last year's staggered format, with two drops. The first is on 12th June, and this will include a record three releases by Dougans and Cobain. The first, and most interesting, is the latest in the series of re-imaginings of the band's '90s tracks. This time, We Have Explosive is in the chair, with a set of new re-interpretations of the track. Given that the last two releases have featured archival works among the new tracks, it's possible that tracks like 'Exploded Funk', 'Abandoned Housing Blocks of Prypiat' and 'Blue Green' may be among the tracks here, but in general expect a series of new tracks based around the band's second-most-famous piece. An expanded CD version a couple of weeks later is, at this point, a near certainty. Interestingly, the cover and given title lists no 'Re-Imagined' or '2021', as with previous releases.


      Secondly, The Amorphous Androgynous tease a forthcoming reissue of Alice in Ultraland with a 10" EP, with The World is Full of Plankton as the title track. The b-side will feature two as yet unknown tracks, apparently from the album too. This is clearly more for the collector, although taken on its own, it's really nice to see 'Plankton' get its dues as one of the finest compositions in the Dougans / Cobain ouvre. The album itself, of course, passed back into the band's posession last year at the end of their contract with Harvest; a reissue is overdue, and one hopes a bonus disc in the style of The Otherness will accompany it. No release details have been revealed for the reissue yet.


      The third and final release is the most curious: Accelerator is coming out again, this time on its 30th anniversary (the minor issue of J&P delayed the 1991 release until the start of 1992 notwithstanding). There are no details on the Record Store Day page (linking, annoyingly, to the WHE page), but the full listings have it down as a double LP, suggesting there'll be some extra material here (a 12-minutes-per-side 2020s style release seeming unlikely, given it being mixed to play as two gapless sides). One assumes it's likely to be a set of 'Papua New Guinea' remixes on the second disc - possibly the same set as the 2001 reissue, given a vinyl release at last - although given the amount of archived material being regularly uncovered over at 9LW, it's not impossible that we're getting a whole album of Accelerator-era outtakes. The cover provided is the same 'remixed' version from the 2016 RSD release, so it's not totally impossible that it's actually a 12" + 7" pack as we had then, simply mislabelled by the people at RSD. We're going to do some digging, but either way we'll find out in the next few weeks...

      just happened across this YT channel that's basically just a trove of tape rips (mostly it seems at least) of DJ sets. clicked on a few and listening to this FSOL one right now: 
      and starting this Carl Cox mix right now it sounds wild:
      [edit: that bassline that comes in at 22:11 is so goddamned dirty. so many awesome synth lines all throughout this thing tho fuckin hell]
      anyway i imagine a lot of this is available elsewhere but i'm guessing there's definitely some in here that isn't. maybe dig and share some gems. seemed maybe worth its own topic for sharing ones from this channel and similar era rarities stuff in the same vein...archive.org probably has some up there as well.
