    i say - there's some awfully good tunes on here chaps! Rema Rema? Spizz? MARS? Solipsik? Scritti? etc etc. Some i knw & have, some all new - very good. i've not bothered with his text - makes not a jot of sense to me!!!!!

    I was actually going to point out that Hair & Skin Trading Company were about half of post-split Loop, but the prolix-prone Mr Cope beat me to it.

    If anyone's interested, their first single 'Ground Zero' is absolutely fantastic and nothing like the last two Loop albums (which is a good thing). Much more sample-based. The rest of the album, however, including the track Mr Cope posts about, is largely mince.

    Anyone still pining for some new(ish) post punk goodness should check out I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness's album that came out a couple of years ago. It's produced by Paul Barker out of the Revolting Cocks / Ministry and is rather splendid.

    I really like Main, the other half of Loop. People often say Metal Machine Music (mentioned in another thread) is the sound of a guitar leaning on an amp. It isn't. A lot of Main is, albeit with someone squeaking a chair nearby, or dropping a feather near the strings, occasionally picking the thing up and playing a cool tune...and is infinitely more listenable and enjoyable than Lou Reed's effort.

    Yes, Main albums were great explorations of the guitar's outer reaches, especially Hydra-Calm, Firmament III (my favourite) and the Hz collection of EPs, which came in a beautifully designed box.

    Don Letts played the Material with Nona Hendryx track from a recent post-punk sampler on his 6Music show the other night.
    Album nothing to do with J. Cope. Looks like a varied & not so obvious selection from that era.
