Yage 2019 - RSD release

Post by Ross »

In 1986 iconic group The Future Sound of London released the UK Top 40 chart album "Dead Cities", from which came a track "Yage". Such has been the interest in this masterpiece of electronica over the years that the guys have been back into the studio to revisit it. Here, on this limited edition, individually numbered LP press exclusively for 2019' s Record Store Day comes the results. "Yage 2019" takes the core of the original and rebuilds it. All together there are eleven tracks reconstructions and interpretations, woven together (as FSOL do) into a 42 minute dreamscape journey across the 2 sides of vinyl. Only 1000 copies of this release will be pressed on vinyl.

CD to follow on 26th April with two bonus tracks:

1. Yage 2019
2. Floating Into Focus And Then Moving Away
3. Purged
4. We Flew Together
5. Yage (Rhodesia)/Insulin
6. Voodoo Doll
7. Earth Spirit
8. Ayahuasca
9. Slowly Stumbled
10. The People Of Yage (Humanoid Rebuild)
11. Yage Sunset Strip
12. A Sensation Of Vagueness
13. The Images Were Simple And Few

I'd imagine the Rhodesia/Insulin version is probably the same as the Beijing mix. Great to finally see a release of Sunset Strip. And excited about a Humanoid remix!

Awesome news! :)

Love the cover - but would the Dead Cities era FSOL go for a white background ? :)

Fantastic cover indeed - Tempting to get the R$D release just for the art, but will probably hold off for the CD version for the extra tracks.

As ever, if it's mixed to play through gapless, I can't fathom paying more for a version with a gap in it (not to mention the bonus tracks). But the art would be rather nice to hold.

I'm guessing Ayahuasca will be Hallucination, as it appeared under that title on EBS0.5

Nice. Although I never was too keen on those Yage reinterpretations like the hallucinations versions or ayahuasca from FTA 1 or EBS. The original track from Dead Cities is among my favourite FSOL tracks, but those remixes always seemed a bit inferior compared to the otherwordly bliss of the original album track. But i'm very curious how it will work as a cohesive album. I guess there will be a lot of newer recorded, or improved old stuff on there.

I think this will be our first proper taste of material recorded after the extended E6/E6.5/Environmental/My Kingdom sessions, so it'll be interesting to hear how much stylistic development there is in the new material.

Excellent news, I've been wondering about whether something like this would happen. It makes sense considering how many versions of Yage there are. Really looking forward to hearing this!

Wasn't there a yage ep planned back in the day after Dead Cities came out?

I like the cover. In some ways it reminds me of the ISDN era.

Cool that Yage is going to get the same treatment My Kingdom did last year. I do hope it's all gapless too!

Is one of these tracks disguised as the Leon Mar version? EDIT: I meant the Oil remix!

There was a lot of fan speculation about it, but it turns out the third and final single was actually going to be Glass.

That cover would make a cool t-shirt, on black (not white). Can't wait to hear this treat!
