Generally regarded as one of the most important and influential artists to emerge from the original industrial scene, particularly regarding their late 90s/early 00s electronics. I did write a "Beyond the BCB 130" about them ages ago, but on here it's "Ooh, they're wacky, they didn't make any Mojo top 10, lets have some more Travis."
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Get out of the BCB bubble G, it isn't the real world, no one out there is buying the sort of crap that we are apparently listening to apart from you, Goat Boy and Tom Ravenscroft.



I'm quite pleased to be called some cutting edge obscurantist. It makes me sound a lot more in touch than I actually am! :lol:

And an unpleasant surprise or ten.

They are both crap, one because it is skewed by the one record a year mob, and ours because it is voted for by people affecting boredom with mainstream music because they have heard it all before.

One is obvious one is obscurantist both are not the sort of listening experience any normal person would choose and both are largely dull, but least the top sales list probably wouldn't end up with you cutting off your ears to make it stop.

Out of interest, what is a "normal" person if it isn't someone with mainstream tastes? In this context doesn't the list of best sellers define normality?

Not really because it is skewed by people who buy one album a year that they see advertised at Christmas, Grannies buying inappropriate albums for their grandchildren and people who still buy Abba and Beatles albums for some reason

But there is a smattering of good, popular albums on the list like Eminem, Amy Winehouse, KoL, Rhianna, The Killers etc and I would rather listen to that album list than ours. Ours has more highs and more lows, the sales list would be like listening to daytime commercial radio, not exactly great but unlikely to make your mind turn to killing bearded hipsters weilding banjos in inventively painful ways.

Well, there's me, although that probably isn't helping Copehead's cause :lol:
If I had voted, though, I would probably have gone with the second album above Up the Bracket along with two or three BSP albums, five or six by Piano Magic and a few odds and ends.

I think it's been understandably over-rated as an album, but I think 'Lazarus' is wonderful.
