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.
