Amorphous Androgynous - We Persuade Ourselves We Are Immortal (MPB Remixes) [RSD]


Recommended Posts

Vinyl release for RSD, good to see dual releases from them again this time.  Great to see Rabbit in the Moon listed, they're also Tampa/Clearwater guys like me, who are massive FSOL fans since the 90s.  I've seen them do some live remixes of FSOL at shows before.

Other collaborators listed on the sleeve (including the alternate cover which appeared online a while ago):
Stoned Freshwaters - an amusing update of what is believed to be Brian's engineering name when it comes to Amorphous projects.
Peter Hammill - Van der Graaf Generator member featuring on the original track.
The Amorphous Androgynous - no idea who this bunch of reprobates are.
Paul Weller - plays piano on the track and maybe more.
Atomic Simao (Ukrainian band inspired by '60s psych rock and '90s electronic music)
Cobalt Chapel (British acid folk / '70s horror inspired duo featuring Jarrod Gosling from I Monster)
Regal Worm (Psych/prog project of the same Jarrod Gosling)
Higher Peaks (British indie/psych group featuring a member of Weller's live band)
Las Trompas De Falopium (Mexican psych-rock group. Name means 'fallopian tubes')
Future Children (American analogue electronics group)
Steve Cobby's Sweet Jesus (Mellow exotica project from the Fila Brazillia founder)
Flying White Dots (Mashup artist)
Richard E Further Out (American DJ & producer)

The 'album-length single' based around the track was originally due out this month, but they're still running on FSOL Time, which means we'll probably get it next June.

Anyone manage to cop this today?

Still waiting on the album length/longform single, crazy the remixes are out before the single - and the album, which I would hope will drop Spring 2021.

The FSOL "Cascade" Release is out ina week or so I believe..

The multi-path single was originally due to be released before this, but then COVID got in the way... that said, they currently haven't even sent it off for manufacture so I get the feeling it wasn't going to have beaten this one even minus the pandemic. Was just looking over the AA album thread on the FSOLBoard and Gaz initially predicted it would be out by Christmas 2016. He's always been extremely optimistic about release dates. I honestly don't see the Immortal single and Listening Beyond the Head Chakra being out before 2021. 

Cascade 2020 CD will almost certainly be out next Saturday, as that's the earliest they can sell their own RSD stock on FSOLDigital. The digital and CD versions have appeared at the same time the last couple of years so I think that's your best bet.

The Rabbit in the Moon remix wasn't completed in time for the record to be pressed, but might still make it out some day which maybe hints at there being an expanded version at some point (maybe on CD? Gaz doesn't seem to be a big CD fan - the past couple of Amorphous RSD releases have been vinyl-only - but I suppose time will tell).

Gaz said the new single (the multi path single) will be out in a few months, for real this time. He said it def will be out in 2020, so I assume the LP will follow in early '21

Wild the remix album came first, usually that would come after, so gonna prob wait till I've at least heard the actual song first, which I believe the song itself is as long as this remix album.

I'll prob grab Cascade too, know that'll be great.

Yeah, they're hoping for 'before Christmas'. Five paths, three of them are 13, 9 and 10 minutes, so it's going to be a long 'single'.

I've given this a spin, and it's really good, but I don't want to listen again until the original is out as otherwise I'm just going to be listening to it playing 'spot the part from the remix album'.

"We are Immortal" is on the album, so is the album version the edited down one, and there's also the 50min+ long form version as well?

sorry just trying to get it all straight. Remix Album, Long Form Single and the actual album (LBTHC) - it's quite the project! Think I'll hold on the remix album until I hear the single which is nice to know it'll (hopefully) be out in Nov/Dec.

The track is 13 minutes long, and it'll be the first 'path' of the longform single, which will follow the format of '90s FSOL singles (Cascade, Lifeforms, My Kingdom, We Have Explosive) and '00s Amorphous mini-albums (Papua Translations, Mello Hippo Disco Show), ie an original track then variations on the theme (some looser than others).

and an unreleased ver of Immortal was released first, with the Amorphous 2020 Calendar back in October 2019:

This should be out bye end of Nov or (more likely) early Dec - the album "listening beyond the head chakra" will follow next Spring.

This will be out digitally like all FSOL but also will come out as a double CD w the RSD remix album accompanied. I held off on listening to the Remix album because I wanted to wait to hear the Track its based off first, even tho that remix album is kinda its own thing, I still chose to wait..

Been waiting years for them to get this thing finished, funny how my newest movie also took years to get done and they both drop 1st week of Dec after both starting in 2016/2017 - Gaz dug the trailer so who knows, maybe a future colab in my next movie ha! Have always wanted either FSOL or Tangerine Dream (or Plaid) to score a scene or do the entire thing, the bigger my budgets get the closer I get to making that a reality one day..

So glad we'll get this before years end so they can concentrate on getting the Album (Head Chakra) out hopefully by Summer '21

Waited to listen to the Remix Album until I had heard this (well, track 1 at least) so gonna listen to both in 3 weeks when Immortal drops..

They have a habit of underestimating how long things take, I'm kind of amazed this is coming at the predicted time, given that Gaz once stated Head Chakra would be out for Christmas 2016.

I genuinely thought this was the album. Turns out it's a companion/prelude EP. And this EP also had a remix 12" that was released BEFORE the EP even dropped?

Yeah, this whole thing is a little convoluted for sure, heh.

Looks like the CD editions will be two separate releases. Given the last couple of times they've done two simultaneous releases (The Cartel, Environment 6/6.5), I'm wondering if there'll be a 2CD slipcase pack available from FSOLDigital. CDs will be out on the same day as the vinyl, 27th November.

      This has been floating around for years on bootleg, now officially released for June 12, 2021 Record Store Day:
      https://recordstoreday.com/SpecialRelease/13601

      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.
