Be Here Now…Again


This Thursday Chop Suey will be a den of sonic bliss as Loop makes their way to Seattle. Back in the early 90′s their Fade Out and A Gilded Eternity cassettes never left my car, let alone my tape deck, due to the perfect level of noise, beat, and feedback contained within.

Check out Dave’s Segal’s interview with Robert Hampson over at The Stranger, and I highly recommend picking up a copy of Sam Knee’s A Scene In Between: Tripping Through the Fashions of UK Indie Music 1980-1988 to really see how the 80′s UK indie/psych scene looked. Stunning and rare photos of all your favorite bands-yes Loop is in there-some great interviews, and really fantastic hair and shoes.  Word on the street is that the Seattle Public Library has a copy or three as well.

Slow Life from Daniel Stoupin on Vimeo.

“The most important living organisms that play the key functions in the biosphere might not seem exciting when it comes to motion. Plants, fungi, sponges, corals, plankton, and microorganisms make life on Earth possible and do all the hard biochemical job. Similarly to all living things, they are dynamic, mobile, and fundamentally have the same motion properties as us. They grow, reproduce, spread, move towards source of energy, and away from unfavorable conditions. However, their speeds happen to be out of sync with our narrow perception. Our brains are wired to comprehend and follow fast and dynamic events better, especially those very few that happen at speeds comparable to ours. In a world of blazingly fast predators and escaping prey events where it takes minutes, hours, or days to notice any changes are harder to grasp”- Daniel Stoupin
