Something Stirs (The Dead Mourn The Living)
Well, here's an excellent compilation of experimental artists from the UK. There are some well known names on it. It was released on Adventures In Reality Recordings, a label run by the people of Attrition. This label was originally a fanzine/cassette label. I think that the first audio release was the 'Devoid' flexi of Attrition.Other bands who released tapes were Irsol, Stress and Velvet Monkeys. The 'Something Stirs' comp. LP was the first vinyl release.
Attrition is featured here with 3 tracks in the vein of their 'Reason Of Attrition' LP.
The Furious Apples are the least known band on here. They were from Coventry and I just found out that they released the 'Engineering/Belladonna' 7" on a small local label called Sonar Records.
Bourbonese Qualk offers 3 tracks similar to their debut 'Laughing Afternoon' LP.
The Legendary Pink Dots bring us a long track in the vein of their early albums.
Attrition and The Legendary Pink Dots are still around today.
Check these sites for the bands:
The Legendary Pink Dots
The Bourbonese Qualk site is very interesting as you can download all of their albums which I recommend to do so. You won't be disappointed.
note: the Bourbonese Qualk tracks could not be seperated so I ripped them as 1 track.
