Pygmalion - Slowdive

Pygmalion
Pygmalion is the final album by the band Slowdive, released on February 6, 1995. A departure from their previous two albums, Pygmalion incorporated a more experimental sound tilted towards ambient electronic music, with sparse, atmospheric arrangements. All compositions were by Neil Halstead. Lyrics on tracks Miranda and Visions of La by Rachel Goswell. The cover illustration is by acclaimed designer Steven Woodhouse. It was the final album before Slowdive disbanded in 1995, an event widely associated with the demise of shoegazing. This re-issue long out of print now has an enhanced booklet with new sleeve notes by Mojo’s Kieron Tyler. Re-mastered from original tapes, it features a whole disc of rare demos never before released on CD.

Press:-

"Inspired by drug-fuelled trips to Brixton clubnight Quirky, ‘Pygmalion’ was mainly conceived by guitarist and songwriter Neil Halstead in his west London flat – instruments are looped into infinity, while Halstead and Rachel Goswell’s vocals float in and out of the ether.”  

-Nat Cramp (NME – February 11th, 2012)

Just For A Day
Named after a word in one of Nick Chaplin’s dreams not from a Siouxsie and the Banshees single Slowdive formed in Reading, England, in late 1989. The group orginally consisted of Neil Halstead (guitar/vocals), Rachel Goswell (guitar/vocals), Christian Savill (guitar), Adrian Sell (drums), and Chaplin (bass).

Formed when they were mostly in their teens, Slowdive  was initially lumped in with the remainder of the early' 90s British shoegaze scene; Slowdive's later releases extended upon the likes of the Cocteau Twins and the more atmospheric sides of post-punk, and they closed out their career with an excellent and misunderstood ambient LP.

Just for a Day is the debut album by the band Slowdive, released on September 2, 1991. It was recorded at Courtyard Studios in Abingdon, Oxfordshire formally known as Georgetown Studios. The album peaked at #3 in the UK Indie charts. Upon its release, copies of the album were labeled with a sticker that read "like a mind altering substance, without the risk."

Souvlaki
Slowdive's later releases extended upon the likes of the Cocteau Twins and the more atmospheric sides of post-punk, and they closed out their career with an excellent and misunderstood ambient LP. Souvlaki was released on May 17, 1993 in the UK and on February 8, 1994 in the U.S. Widely regarded as their best album, it benefits from synthesizer contributions from co-producer Brian Eno on Sing, which he co-wrote, and Here She Comes . The album's U.S. release includes the previously unreleased cover of Some Velvet Morning  - written by Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra in 1967, and three tracks from the band's 1993 5 EP, all of which feature on this edition.

Whirlpool
Missing ] on field starting at 850

Inspired by the likes of My Bloody Valentine and Ride, Chapterhouse were part of the short-lived 'shoe-gazing' scene of the early 90's, but unlike other acts who acquired a set of guitar pedals and headed off to the nearest recording studio, they mixed beats with their wall-of-sonic-guitar-fuzz to create records to stimulate both mind and feet! Newly expanded reissue of their classic debut 'Whirpool', now with all the b-sides from the singles 'Pearl', 'Falling Down' and the 'Sunburst EP'. Produced by the band along side Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins), John Fryer (This Mortal Coil), Stephen Hague (New Order) and Ralph Jezzard, and featuring guest vocals from Rachel Goswell (Slowdive), with liner notes from music journalist and long-time associate Andrew Perry, along with the lyrics in full [documented here for the first time), photos, memorabilia and other clippings from the bands personal archive, and images of all of the releases featured on the album. Long deleted, original CDs of the album sell for £25+ on internet auction websites.
