THE LOOP ORCHESTRA-THE ANALOGUE YEARS, CD, 1999, AUSTRALIA






Following my post many months back of this wonderfully disorienting Australian experimental troupe's debut LP, here's their equally lovely second outing of old school reel-to-reel tape loop manipulation, much of it recorded live. This still extant unit features a pretty auspicious roster of Aussie avant heavyweights in it's ranks, among them Richard Fielding of early Severed Heads and Patrick Gibson of The Systematics and the supernaturally present and charged atmosphere they and the rest of this ensemble evoke here (by turns hovering, miasmic and cocooning) leaves little question that they're all still in the thick of their creative prime.
