Slipstream - Retrospective

Post by Laz69 » Wed Oct 30, 2019 4:11 pm

I recently did a Q&A with Mark Refoy re: Slipstream for my wee corner of the internet. Discussing his musical background, Spacemen 3 and Spiritualized as well as his Slipstream years and life in general. If you fancy a wee read, you can find it at the link below.

I also did a wee companion mix of Slipstream material from all their albums, a link to which can be found in the blog post above.

Enjoy!

Yes, thank you, that was a great read.

Mark seems like such a humble guy - this makes me want to check Slipstream out as I've never really heard them... I believe Veiko sent me a comp of their stuff years ago which will be in a box somewhere.

Liked the bit about Johnny Marr really liking Pure Phase :D

Bza, there is a link in my blog post to a Slipstream mix i put together as a result of revisiting all the albums as i compiled my questions. It covers all their albums and its a great listen if i do say so myself! :D

Did they mention if their last album - Out of the Blue - will ever get a physical release? The "cover" for the download looks ace, and would be great on a 12" sleeve.

Nothing in the pipeline Stevie; no interest shown by anyone. Mark quite happy to go down the digital route as long as he can keep putting his music out.

Out Of The Blue has an Anthony Ausgang designed cover and, yes, it would look cracking on a proper 12" sleeve

Great interview, Laz, thanks. Mark is one of the nicest people I've met, and certainly the most underappreciated talent. I'm glad he realised he was in the best band in the world at the time, because he was, and in no small part due to him.

Great read! Cheers, Laz! I only have the Transcendental album on CD. Enjoying your playlist, too.

Very cool man! Was fascinating to hear his perspective on the last days of S3
