Chapterhouse - Freefall 12"
Since I haven't posted any shoegaze in some time, I figured I'd put up a few good singles to keep the masses happy. Early Chapterhouse rival the likes of Ride and My Bloody Valentine for the top shoegazer award, though they themselves would never admit to being a part of any genre called shoegaze. Although these fellows never really got the status they should have with their first album Whirlpool (in relation to the success My Bloody Valentine got), they did manage to get a cult following worldwide. Whirlpool still remains one of my favorite albums to play, as well as these earlier eps. This 12" offers a slight variation of 'Falling Down', which sounds more like a demo version in comparison to what was released later one. It's a great sonic attack, if that's the thing you're into, and if not, well it can be used as ammo against your neighbours.
Track 1, Falling Down
Track 2, Need (Somebody)
Track 3, Inside Of Me
Track 4, Sixteen Years
