A Spooky Return

Postby SteveC » 25 Apr 2006 14:29

Its been a long wait but I have to share the excitement that is the return of Spooky.

Those who saw them tag along with 808 on the megadog events will know how unique their live sound was.

I never thought I'd recapture that boyhood feeling of excitement when you discover a certain sound or band for the first time, as I did when I first heard Pacific, Chime or Little Bullet, but alas that feeling has returned. I only hope they don't stray into the commercial sector like so many others and can rekindle that original magic.

With 21st century myspace advertising this band is finally going to make it big, 13 years after their debut album, and well deserved too.

Even spooky.

On the Gargantual CD there is an internet address. We're talking 1993. That's odd. It was inactive last I checked.

Spooky.

Just heard the new single 'No return' apparently backed with Josh Wink mixes.

Very very good!

I love their Schmoo single, Both the Stepping Razor Mix & The Leftfield mix are to die for. 8)

I only got 'Gargantuan' like two weeks ago. Incredible!!!!!! A lot of people say this and 'Leftism' were the main 'progressive house' albums but i prefer this.

And although I haven't heard those remixes of Schmoo, that is one tune! :D

There're more. Some are outdate. But the Dub House Disco compilation has standed the test of time for me. Also on the Spooky tip, and Intoxication, Oh Yeah and Let Go.

Spot on Solarex :)

The Dub House Disco comps are fantastic.

Guerilla records used to churn out some classics like the Drum Club - Alchemy & U make me feel so good.

Also another favourite of mine Jo Bogaert - Water.

Wow sounds like Guerilla were a good label. All I knew about them was that William Orbit owned it! Or something along those lines. Mind you I couldn't find that d.o.p. album on ebay-wheres the best place to look for these records??

haha so true! I can't really say what the last 'classic' house album was. Just look at Warp-from Forgemasters to Maximo Park (who aren't that bad, but THEY AIN'T HOUSE MUSIC!! :P).
