Subaphotic – Another 3 Tracks (demo)
3 tracks that were recorded for possible inclusion on the album that was provisionally called Vashta Nerada, after the Doctor Who episode ‘Silence In The Library’. I think it’s the album that eventually became Bluminosity, though 2 of the 3 tracks didn’t actually make it on in the end.
‘Home B4 U Go’ – It’s a shame this didn’t make it on to an album. I think the version on this CD still needed a bit of work, but I like it.
‘Hard 2 Get’ – An early version of this song (which did make it on the album). I think I might actually prefer it to the album version, just because it has got a bit more rawness to it and hasn’t been overly produced, which I personally find more appealing.
Subaphotic – Possibles (demo)
14 tracks that were identified as possibles to make it on the album ‘Joining The Dots’. It was a 12 track album, so you can probably deduce that 2 of these songs were eliminated from the final tracklisting. The ordering’s different as well, unsurprisingly. ‘Joining The Dots’ is an album I only got hold of last year – slightly too late to listen to it in the A-Z. However, I’ll get to hear all the tracks (and more) here instead, so it’s all good.
Apologies if I don’t say much about these songs – I’m simultaneously looking up possible recipes to try out, as am bored of having the same few meals all the time. I also made an impulsive pheasant breast purchase (like you do), so will be attempting to cook that this evening. I found a nice sounding recipe with a port sauce, which is rather convenient as I also impulse bought some port! Maybe my subconscious knew they’d go well together.
‘Defective’ – “A mouse in your bedroom is so wrong”. Indeed!
Subnormmal – XXX (album)
A new project my Dad had started, as a kinda side project to Subaphotic. This ended up being the last album he completed and released. This is my first time listening to it. It has got a bit of a different style to it in places, though mostly could be another Subaphotic album (albeit one without me on it, obviously). Not that that’s a bad thing. There are some good songs for sure.
I’ll leave things here for today before moving on to Suede. That’s going to involve a mammoth amount of listening time!
