I want to thank savonarola for the Future Sound of London "Lifeforms" and "Cascade" cd. I have been listening to it non-stop. It means a lot to me since my entire cd collection was stolen while I was in London, "Lifeforms" along with it.

The EP version of "Lifeforms" is quite different from the cd version, I thought it would be the same, just with Liz Fraser's vocals over it. I think both versions are equally beautiful, in their own unique ways.

I don't know what it is about these particular FSOL cds, especially "Lifeforms." I practically grew up listening to it and it resonates with something in me more than any other music, even though some others come very close.

Anyway, thank you.

I always liked the few FSOL tracks I downloaded, some interesting stuff. The one that I liked the most was the track that ends with the sound of a london tube pulling out of a tube station.. I can't recall it's name.. but the sound is unique. Something knifes I think the title was.

I can't recall that song right off hand...

A lot of the reasons I like FSOL so much are the memories I have attached to it. Lifeforms and Cascade are my favorites of theirs, I'm not a huge fan of their We Have Explosives, etc. style. It has it's place and is good, but it doesn't have the same emotional effect on me.

I think Max was the person who originally suggested I get FSOL tracks.. I may be wrong however.

I know he had interest in them when we first met, but I don't think he has any of the cds. Or else I would have burnt some copies for myself before I left. ;)

Er, the copy you made me? I'm confused. I never had a copy
of the lp before, only the Lifeforms 2 cd set.

I do wonder whatever happened to the copy of Lifeforms I owned. I have a sneaking suspicion that it went about a week or two after I bought it in one of my burglaries.

At least I'll be able to listen to it after we get married :)

Hah maybe it's bad luck to own Lifeforms.. anyone who does will be robbed. ;P

Oh, and you can listen to it now.. don't have to wait until we're married. Many of the mp3s are on audiogalaxy or I can send you some.

I'm sure I have a bunch of them on MP3... if not on my PC, on a CD somewhere. I can wait anyway, it'll just be nice to have them in the house :)

Are FSOL Cyberpunk?
i'm as much as fan of the idea of FSOL as FSOL themselves:

the artwork.
the style.
the concept.

ISDN is my personal fave. I think FSOL are like hearing someone's sampled memories (maybe even your own) being downloaded into your ears - thats at least why it serves as a resonant 'trigger' to me.

It's a whole package deal for me too. Although like I said above, their dance stuff doesn't resonate with me as much, but I still like it.

I believe I have a few mp3s off of ISDN, but I've never heard the album as a whole. I saw a copy of it at my small local cd store, which surprised me. *hmmm* Might have to pick it up. :)

Sampled memories.. I like that.

I have never heard of these guys before today. They're awesome. Enigma meets Lords of Acid on the street and bums a smoke before going over to it's friend Delerium's house.

I feel I've done my part to spread the word on this incredible group. These are a couple of other tracks I like (I have some spare time and webspace..) that is if you haven't already hit your favorite mp3 downloading software yet. ;)

Future Sound Of London - Papua New Guinea (probably one of their best known tracks.)

Future Sound Of London - Lifeforms Part 5

::still listening to Lifeforms::

... and then when it finds that Delerium isn't home, it goes and hands out with the Supreme Beings of Leisure.

Maybe invite Higher Intelligence Agency, The Orb, and Art of Noise over a beer?

Party!
