DB beat me to the idea, though I want to add the stipulation that every LP be represented in 80 minutes. I'll have to list mine later.

1. "I want to rock with you"
2. "Atomic Dog" (German release EP)
3. "Janie's got a gun"
4. "Bark at the Moon"
5. "Afternoon Delight" (UK single 7" version)
6. "Fish and Grits"
7. "Coming to America" (Neptunes remix)

That's hard because I don't feel every Autechre LP showcases their best at all. And does this include Gescom?

Xii (Xii), Friday, 5 December 2003 00:57 (sixteen years ago) link

Gescom is problematic because some/most Gescom songs are produced by other Skam people, not necessarily Booth and Brown, although I have a feeling about B&B's involvement on Keynell 4.

If not their LPs, do you prefer their comps and remixes?

Leee Trevino (Leee), Friday, 5 December 2003 06:34 (sixteen years ago) link

I wish I had the energy to do this one, because I love Autechre. The song names are too just hard to remember (the music ain't though)without me getting off my ass and looking at the CD case.

Not as familiar with the newer stuff, but "Lowride" and the "Basscadet" single mix should be in there somewhere...

Sean Thomas (sgthomas), Friday, 5 December 2003 08:10 (sixteen years ago) link

the remix of tortoise -
gescoms 'mag'.
remix of dj food.

that one of cichlisuite.
that Carrier tune off lp5

ambrose (ambrose), Friday, 5 December 2003 09:11 (sixteen years ago) link

"Drane" of a Peel session has to be in there.

this is not right - Gescom is booth and brown, no one else.

Id fill 80 minutes easily but i wouldnt put anything off the most recent 2 albums.

jed (jed_e_3), Friday, 5 December 2003 11:26 (sixteen years ago) link

I did a minidisc of this for someone ages ago. Can't remember the exact tracklisting, but it had these choices in:

Arch Carrier
Maphive 6.1
Netlon Sentinel
Milk DX

Probably a bit too long to fit on 80mins and I reckon there'd be more if I could fit it in - Vose In being one and maybe something off of Confield.

dog latin (dog latin), Friday, 5 December 2003 12:07 (sixteen years ago) link

..actually i was wrong, of course. Booth and Brown for the core of Gescom with extra production from visiting artists.

jed (jed_e_3), Friday, 5 December 2003 12:38 (sixteen years ago) link

I've never been that keen on the Gesom releases

dog latin (dog latin), Friday, 5 December 2003 12:41 (sixteen years ago) link

nah me neither - thankfully some of the ones i have are worth quite a bit, so i'll probably get rid of them soon!

here goes mine - im ignoring the one track from each album rule since the last 2 cd's have done nothing for me (apart from give me a mild panic attack)

Vose in
Like A Motorway (Skin up, your already dead)
Under Boac
Brochusvnmx (off the Garbage ep)
GoSheep (Gescom)

..about 80 i think.

jed (jed_e_3), Friday, 5 December 2003 12:54 (sixteen years ago) link

rettic ac
hypnotise (autechre remix)
two of (by gescom from 0161 on skam)
sexy bits (ae9v remix)
vose in
laughing quarter

i like their detroit / emo-electro angle ...

vahid (vahid), Friday, 5 December 2003 17:22 (sixteen years ago) link

here's the link again

LC, Monday, 5 April 2004 16:27 (sixteen years ago) link

He's dancing to Eutow right?

LC, Monday, 5 April 2004 16:28 (sixteen years ago) link

You can all send them to me.

I can judge them, hey?

Sasha (sgh), Tuesday, 6 April 2004 00:01 (sixteen years ago) link

a mix of some ambient and "pop" stuff:




piezo (only last 3 minutes or so)




overand - and its cousin on amber, but I forget what it's called.





arch carrier


keynell 1 - love that double bass sound

are y are we - spooky minimal electro - the first three minutes or so is like their answer to plastikman's "plastique"

go sheep

go sumo - sweet electro, would love to hear them do more like this but of course that's not gonna happen. are they out of the dsp forest yet?

skin up youre already dead - amazing outro

Elliot (Elliot), Tuesday, 6 April 2004 03:00 (sixteen years ago) link

seems some versions of "are y are we" floating on soulseek are misnamed.

Elliot (Elliot), Tuesday, 6 April 2004 03:06 (sixteen years ago) link

ugh... and "we are r why" was ripped at the wrong speed. now I need to dig out the record.

Elliot (Elliot), Tuesday, 6 April 2004 03:08 (sixteen years ago) link

love love love incunabula, basscad, amber, and the combined tri repete american cd

actually have copies of the seperate garbage and anvil vapre eps too. Just lost where they were going on the last few albums. One track I heard off the last album was pretty good but they lost momentum for me.

hector (hector), Tuesday, 6 April 2004 03:15 (sixteen years ago) link

no love for pen expers?

that track is fucking intense.

todd swiss (eliti), Tuesday, 6 April 2004 03:24 (sixteen years ago) link

Pen Expers is the best track on Confield, IMO.

latebloomer (latebloomer), Tuesday, 6 April 2004 03:33 (sixteen years ago) link

i probably would have liked it if I had sat through all of confield. I own it so I will probably go back and take a listen. I admired the sounds they produced on that album bu I really sensed little narritive. Maybe I am just to dense.

Their interview style in the last several years didn't really win them any points either. If they were so anti industry they should have just restrained from doing interviews rather than just being holier than thou pricks about everything.

I will repeat again though that I loved the above albums. Actually some of the first electronica I introduced my wife to that I got her to like and identify.


hector (hector), Tuesday, 6 April 2004 04:12 (sixteen years ago) link

Did anyone download the video?

LC, Tuesday, 6 April 2004 04:23 (sixteen years ago) link

best? doctrine definately, especially the final minute.

helmer, Wednesday, 3 November 2004 20:15 (fifteen years ago) link

i love autechre but i can't possibly take part in this game cos i don't know any of their song titles. i mean, why bother memorising gibberish?

weasel diesel (K1l14n), Wednesday, 3 November 2004 23:39 (fifteen years ago) link

'Bronchus One.I' is grebt. Only available on a compilation though.

Sasha on a different PC, Thursday, 4 November 2004 00:22 (fifteen years ago) link

1) Bliix
2) Mokart 7

No, actually I made those up.

Hurting (Hurting), Thursday, 4 November 2004 13:31 (fifteen years ago) link

Cichli + Peel Sessions 2 is halfway to my best-of.
