Take yourself back to those heady shogazing days of the late 80s early 90s....Slowdive, brilliant.
Slowdive was an English alternative rock band that formed in 1989. The band was formed in Reading and primarily consisted of Nick Chaplin (bass), Rachel Goswell (vocals, guitar), Neil Halstead (vocals, guitar), and Christian Savill (guitar). Several drummers played with the band, including Ian McCutcheon, Adrian Sell, and Simon Scott.
Signing with Creation, Slowdive's early singles received glowing press and chart placement. Their debut single, Slowdive, thinly veiled an indebtedness to the Byrds and My Bloody Valentine, with no traceable punk influence Just after Slowdive's recording, The sleepy escapist psychedelia of both Morningrise and Holding Our Breath made significant impressions on the British indie chart.
The press dubbed them part of "The Scene That Celebrates Itself" - a small, loose, conglomerate of like-minded bands who could be seen at each other's shows, frequently hanging out together within the same circle. This "scene" included Lush, Moose, Swervedriver, Curve, and Blur.
This anthology compiled and annotated by Mojo s Kieron Tyler is a fine stepping on point for anyone interested in the works of Slowdive. This is the first in series of releases by the band on Cherry Red.
