: let it be (1998 - mute records)
An album of bombastic Teutonic Beatles covers… even the artwork menacingly
mimics the original. Full of humour and pomposity. Great for a drunken
: into deep (1999 - Superstition)
Lieb is one of the few pure spirits put there. Lovely uplifting electronic
music full of mood and quiet beauty. Goes great with a sunset.
Lakaien : Forest enter exit (1993 - gymnastic classx)
A blend of electronics with traditional instruments and powerful male
vocals. Full of atmosphere and longing. Great for watching a clear night
sky with a friend.
: United States of Mind (1999 - dependent)
quite the perfect album… but hard to pass when you're in the mood. A nice
dense electronic mix of the upbeat and lyrically introspective. Great
for a dance with friends.

in the groove : jeff noon (1999 - Anchor)
Infected wih the rhythms of dance remixes, written like the lyrics to
an album, this is a strange, beautiful novel about music, bands, and escaping
from the past.
Apis : Jay Hosler (1999 - Active Synapse)
An educational comic about the life of bees. Boring? Not at all. It’s
humourous, bittersweet and full of fun characters. It is aimed at younger
readers, but it’s still well worth checking out.
