Autechre – Overand

The penultimate track on Autechre’s hulking, rusted, metallic beast of an album; 1995’s ‘Tri Repetae’; changes tack from what came before, and allows the listener to freefall into beatless space and creepy ambient.


Ken Ishi – Extra

Lively, joyous Japanese Techno from Ishi’s 1995 album ‘Jelly Jones’.

Robert Hood – The Rhythm of Vision

The tougher end of the Detroit sound from the Minimal master. This featured on the 1995 EP ‘Tresor 3’, which also featured the likes of Jeff Mills, Joey Beltram, and Maurizio.

Foetus – Hammer Falls

The Sentinel has already gone into the issues surrounding 1995’s ‘GASH’; for both Thirlwell and his audience; so there is no need to go into that again. ‘Hammer Falls’ is one of the albums crackers, and drags the listener into a maelstrom that includes a horn section on steroids, punishing drums, and diseased raga shenanigans. Long live Jimmy!

Tournesol – Break ‘n’ Space

Detroit strings meets breaks on this tune from the 1995 album ‘Moonfunk’ on R & S.

Foetus – Slung

After a 7 year gap (which has been exceeded since) Thirlwell brought his Foetus project back into the life of his longing fans. 1995’s ‘GASH’ was a disappointment to some, especially Thirlwell himself (the whole Sony debacle isn’t worth going into here, and has very likely been mentioned on The Sentinel in the past), but there’s no doubt that the album had some strong numbers on it. One of those was ‘Slung’, where Jimmy more or less drops the ‘Industrial Big Band’ tag for simply ‘Big Band’ Here’s our red haired hero almost playing it straight on a track about getting dumped.

Tindersticks – Seaweed

Fragile piece from the bands 2nd album, 1995’s ‘Tindersticks’. Brushed cymbals, piano, and little else to support singer Stuart Staples crooning.

Tindersticks – My Sister

Simultaneously uplifting and sad; a wonderful number from the UK bands 2nd album, 1995’s ‘Tindersticks’. This has the usual EZ/Indie/Chamber thing going on with spoken word from Stuart Staples (one for those that may not always get on with his pub singer approach).

Paul Schütze – Sleep III

Drone on………..
