Whats comparable?
yeah actual 80s electro is the obvious forerunner

but I think you're looking for more like early IDM/techno influenced by electro and/or Detroit

idk how much you know about techno so these are v obvious recs but

Selected Ambient Works 85-92 and most of Aphex Twin's early 90s biz
all early The Black Dog EPs ca. 89-92ish
all Drexciya EPs ca. 92-96 and the electro end of Detroit in general

it's true that 80s electro is generally quite rigid, which is both the point (breakdancing etc) and a product of technology available

here's one that's a bit more fluid, begins pointing in the direction of Detroit

from Manchester too - famous electro DJ Greg Wilson was involved - so presumably young Booth and Brown would've been familiar

this is actually called the 'slow electric' mix, not 'massive mellow' which makes it sound really wank and trip-hoppy. Unfortunately early 90s weatherall attracted some fans he was able to somewhat cul by the mid 90s with his grungier direction.

now luka should be more tempted to listen.

Bruno Catala > A Love From Outer Space
Re-release of a great electronica classic LP from 1994 and that was only available on vinyl.
Several tracks were featured on Andrew's Slow Electric tape, which was given away at Sabresonic.

but @WashYourHands you can see how 'massive mellow' as a title brings back all that Bristol uni mo wax smoke a spliff with private school educated arabella and toby can't you? Weatherall was too fashion conscious to label a mix that, so i gotta give it to @luka in this instance.

Mate I just posted it for the music, whoever tagged it farted out those words. If that in turn creates associations about Bristol, mo wax and weed, not a lot I can do about that is there.

Not guilty, m’lord.

There's such innocence and joy in a tune like "Bamboo". Never such innocence again. I was born too late.

Someone needs to put corpsey out of his misery like they do with dogs when they get sick.

I'll give this a go if it's shit I'm going to go absolutely fucking psycho. I'm treating myself today. Sitting in a cold room with a bottle of Barossa Shiraz and a Tesco Brie. Staring at the wall.

never really explored Australian wines, is this region a favorite? give us the "wine enthusiast" top-line review, educate me (and craner) about the tannis and tobacco finish, etc.

Oz wines are notoriously heavy. 14% is standard. If you really dig, there’s some really tasty treats hidden under all the muck, but it’s been so long I’m out of the loop.

Do you have a Balducci’s or Total Wine outlet near you? The latter is the best value, where you can explore without getting rinsed. Just ignore big names like Wolf Blass. Kiwi Pinots are superb for the $ mark up.
