's Ulrich Schnauss
post made me shudder with three words - "drum and bass". At first, I lost a little respect for Schnauss, but once I collected myself I was quickly reminded that the past is the past, and that sometimes, such things are forgivable.
In 1994, I recieved a package that had two albums in it. One was Seefeel
, the other was Bark Psychosis
. I immediately immersed myself in both. Seefeel, I understood right away. It was all new for me, but it clicked. The washey loops, pattering electronics, the structure, it was all foreign, but it all made sense. Bark Psychosis, on the other hand was atmospheric, yet minimal, and no matter how many times I listened to it, I wasn't able to place where it should be filed. And I kept on coming back to it. Four years later, I discovered Talk Talk's Spirit Of Eden
and Laughing Stock
and Bark Psychosis makes a whole lot more sense to me. They've even shared members at times.
As it is with a few great records, I believe that Hex
is something that should be heard rather than chalked up to a few words.
So, what does this have to do with Ulrich Schnauss? Yes, it's a roundabout babble, but Graham Sutton disbanded Bark Psychosis for years after Hex
to concentrate on his drum 'n bass project, Boymerang. Although I felt somewhat stabbed in the back upon learning this, it was all made up for with a return to Bark Psychosis with 2004's Codename: Dustsucker
