I think the documentary is fantastic, the visuals are perfect and I also enjoy how it's all just music with no talking... however I much prefer this one, I think the narrator does a phenomenal job getting all the information across. Both are worth watching but if you only want to watch one, I suggest this one.

just watched this. a bit simplistic but really good vibes, and it's easy to see a lot of love went into it. i particularly enjoyed the rundown of the TH campaign - it's nice to see it from start to finish like that, as i only remember bits and pieces of it.

i was also very excited to see something i wrote on bocpages.org explicitly used! makes me feel like a movie star.

I found this BOC doc a bit hard to watch because of the very amateurish narration. There are a couple of unintentionally funny bits and quite hilarious mispronounciations and misnomers ("Autecture",   "B. O. C.", Geodaddy", "Edenburg" ...) in there too, so at first, I was honestly asking myself if it was some sort of speech software. But apparently it was a school project that was pulled off in 48 hours, so that's still impressive and a nice entrypoint to the rabbithole.

Edit: Nvm, I see there's an extended and remastered version that you linked to. Haven't watched that one yet.

I love that picture of Mike as he holds his palm to the camera. I think it’s one of the best photos I’ve ever seen within my realm of favourite artists. There seems a lot of weary wisdom in his face, and his eyes are fathoms deep of multitudes I can’t even explain. No doubt I would wish to have a glass of beer and a yarn with him.

Yeah the remaster is excellent, they re recorded their voice and added some extra stuff

What a great documentary, I somehow missed this thread before.  Just sat and watched the whole thing, really well put together and makes me realise I have not listened to any BoC in a while now.

The whole XXXXX/etc thing was pretty nuts wasn't it!

Same. I need new material (as in an album not a few remixes) to reignite my interest in them. For quite some time BOC has been almost totally dormant in Camp Beerwolf.

I've been obsessively seeking out BoC esque stuff in the meantime, I could send you some playlists

This would be fantastic. Lately I’ve gone a bit stale with seeking out new music. I'm stuck in the doldrums recently, lost on windless waters.

How about making a post about it? Interested whether there's anything I don't know about.

Nice. I actually had the "Ferric Bliss" and "VHS Headcleaner" playlists in an ordered sequence for the first few dozen songs but then I just started throwing other tracks in. You could probably play them on shuffle in other words.

Doubt if they were all precise BoC soundalikes I would bother to listen to all 500 tracks! Guess It’s all about the vibe man. Also cool to listen to a longtime watmm posters record selection. 30 tracks each day. So far 1991, Toro Y Moi, Pale Sketcher and Orchid Mantis are my top picks from the first 30. Might revisit the Matthewdavid track as I remember being in a rush for something and realising it was 20 minutes long!

Not to derail the thread but I'm a big fan of his. Mindflight (2013) is one of my all time favourite ambient albums - check it out if you can find it. It's not on his bandcamp or youtube for some reason, and more recently he has been releasing albums as "Matthewdavid's Mindflight" which makes it even harder to search for, but you'll be glad you did

      My album this week is a reissue of the ambient classic from 2001. It's been going for silly prices on Discogs these last few years. However, it's just been re-issued on vinyl and digitals.

      "An almost forgotten but bona fide Ambient classic floats up on a 20th anniversary edition with the legendary Glasgow-based Ampoule label, newly remastered with a bonus cut for added immersion - highly recommended to fans of BoC, Balil, Porter Ricks.
      Still every bit as woozy and gouched-out as we remember, Pub’s gingerly wistful debut album ‘Do You Ever Regret Pantomime?’ is a cult classc for those that know; a sublime example of a peculiar sound at its sensitive best. Back in 2001 it saw lots of rotation at our auld shop Pelicanneck and has since become prized for its effervescent melodies and light-touch drum programming that acknowledged and parsed influence from then-contemporary hip hop and post-rock as much as the prevailing trends of ambient and minimal techno. 
      A plangent, elusive sense of nostalgia that arguably prefigures modes of hauntology beautifully percolates the album, dwelling on a melancholy state of mind that, with hindsight, speaks to a timeless sort of wistfulness and tentative tension surrounding the early years of the millennium - which now seems incredibly distant and naive in the midst of 2020’s shitstorm. The tracks are perhaps detectably burred with a gently rolling accent and crepuscular glow that we’d attribute to Pub’s Scottish provenance and which clearly resonates with BoC, so it’s maybe best to play this album after theirs, when its vaporised textures and thizzing melodic tendrils will best work their exceedingly subtle yet palpable magic."

      Not really a fan of Rick & Morty... but am a fan of both dank memes and the long-running AS bromance with IDMz.  Lots of warp and other guud stuff on here (tracklist in description doofi):
