submarine prophets - dive ep 1990

a swedish psychedelic/shoegaze outfit from the early nineties, the submarine prophets released its first and only ep in 1990 on uk's backs records. although a collection of their demos and selected unreleased tracks from 1989 to 1992 are compiled in this amazing album called "the summers of 1989-1992" which can be found and downloaded here. having said that, this ep truly is a great example of how the mainstream media followers can overlooked such great music! hmmm....
this 12" record was given to me courtesy of my goth friend from tpp8u.

breathless - magic lamp cd5 1999

an indie band from the uk, breathless, despite their signature forte has been quietly in existence from the mid-eighties up to the early 2000s producing lush melodies led by dominic appleton(this mortal coil). not exactly tearin' up charts but half a dozen no-nonsense albums and several eps on a single label, london's "tenor vossa" records is not really a bad résumé. here is the band's final release before the turn of the miilennium but  it does not end there, the last we heard of this uk outfit was there 2003 album "behind the light".
