[I love their Amorphous Androgynous stuff. The Isness is a class album.

Is that the name they go by now?  The Isness was great psychedelia -- have they continued with that sound?

They're back as Future Sound of London now (I think).

They released Alice in Ultraland under Amorphous Androgynous, which was canny good, not on the same level as The Isness though.

I'd check out some of their Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble mixes too. They done a class one to Falling Down by Oasis.

Get this 8 bit operators album of remixes on 8bit sound modules. Really clunky and pure.

How do you define Electronica exactly? My dad and i make electronicy music but it's more ambient and atmospheric than the likes of Kraftwerk n such. Plus it's all instrumental, no vox of any sort (but there is melodies). I really struggle with genre titles - no idea what to call our stuff; but it's a bit of a Tubular Bells/Jean-Michel-Jarre* synth orchestra mega-hybrid (:lol:).

The Soundcloud's in my signature, have a listen if anyone's interested. Would love any sort of feedback.

*is he 'Electronica'?

I thought Electronica was made up by daft Americans to lump together the Trip hop/Big Beat that became popular over there in the 90's.

Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.
