18/01/19 - No new album called Nordwand

Quite a few people have spotted that there's a new FSOL album listed on Google called Nordwand. Sadly, this is simply Google's automatic listing getting confused by the fact that there are many, many acts called Yage, one of whom - a Norwegian rock group - have just released an album called Nordwand.

23/10/18 - Stakker 30th anniversary remake and October calendar track

Coming in November, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of 'Stakker Humanoid', is a new 12":
30 years ago this month (Nov 1988), Humanoid - 'Stakker Humanoid was the UK's no. 1 song in the dance charts - it would stay no. 1 for five weeks, also charting in the UK top 20 at no. 17. Now regarded as an acid house classic anthem and hailed as the first real UK acid house track to break the top 20. Humanoid music from 1988 was also used in Stakker - Eurotechno, now housed in the museum of modern art (New York) and cited as a major influence on early Aphex Twin music / Rephlex.

To celebrate, Humanoid (Brian Dougans - FSOL) has reworked the original into a 2018 breaks monster with two equally killer tracks on the b-side: 'Skatter' and 'Blunt'.

The 12" is due out on 30th November, with copies likely shipping earlier from FSOLDigital.

In other news, this month's calendar track is yet another '90s piece which almost made it to Archived 9, 'Transmission Edit 6'.
