Synopsis

Album Description
Discordant, elusive and utterly hypnotic, Loop conjured a dark, trance-like spell that contrasted sharply with the prevailing British pop music trends of their time. Equal parts the Stooges, Can and Hawkwind, in tandem with fellow travellers Spacemen 3 they resurrected the concept of space-rock for a new era, creating droning soundscapes of bleak beauty and harsh dissonance. Highligts include 'Vapour', 'Afterglow' and 'Blood'. Beggars.

CD Reviews

Very Blissed out and evocative music
Jonathan Levitt | Somerville, Ma United States | 05/19/2007

"Loop, is a band that seems to have vanished from the radar screens of the cool kids. Too bad, because this record is pure pleasure. Very trance inducing music like the track , "Be Here Now". These albums deserve a reissue, as do the Main and Hair and Skin Trading company albums. This band and its offshoots way beyond their time. Worth every penny."

"Salmon's review says it better than I can. I ran across the cassette back in 1991. It was sent to the newspaper I worked for for a review that never came. It was WAAAAY over their heads..hell, it is over mine. I love music of all kinds, and although I bought Psychocandy (credited with starting the breif movememt) when it first came out, I never knew there was such a thing as "shoegazer" until this last year when I came to amazon to replace that aging cassette.
I have to say this is music on another planet. I is undefinable and utterly unique; hypnotic and unnerving. I now own more Loop, and this definately their best work.
This record will never age; it timeless, Johnny Cash timeless, Hank Williams timeless.
Too bad folk not actually looking for this stuff can't hear it.

"I first heard Loop in high school. A friend of my older brother was heavy into psychedelic rock and this was one of his favorites. He gave me a tape with A Gilded Eternity and Heaven's End. I thought it was bizarre at the time, but loved it just the same. Nostalgia hit and I had to hear it again. Abrasive and druggy, but liquid at the same time. You'll like this if you are in to My Bloody Valentine, Hypatia Lake, or The Pink Snowflakes. Check out Main's Hydra-Calm E.P. compilation, too."
