the psychodererelick sounds of loop: the peel sessions and some more (1987-1990)

i always loved the monolithic monotaneously metarepeating riffs of the loop. they sounded and appeared like an unconcerned version of spacemen 3 or the jesus and mary chain, and though they were as deeply rooted in 60s psychedeliria and spaceartrock as those units loop were much more accessible and down-to-earth.
in their high time between 1985 and 1991 they released four albums and a handful of singles, all of them are highly recommended. to give you a general idea of their music i decided to share their three john peel sessions and to add them up with three tracks from one of their maxi cds. it is not all too hard to find their releases, and they are not all too expensive: so go ahead!
