As far as I know, they've only got two other releases, "Country Clonk", and
"Born Under Punches" (a cover of a Talking Heads track) which can be found
on the Nuphonic 01 and 02 compilations, respectively. I don't know what
they sampled for "Country Clonk", but it's absolutely unbelievable. Very
reminiscent of KISS's "I was made for loving you". It was the first track I
heard from the Nuphonic label and remains one of my favorites. Much better
than "The Art Of Being In Between", in my opinion. The version of "Born
Under Punches" on the 02 comp is good, but I like the Harvey remix available
on the vinyl single better.
There was news a while back on the web site (www.nuphonic.co.uk) about them
dropping an album, but I haven't heard anything lately. If you dig this
kind of sound, I would highly recommend you pick up either one of Faze
Action's albums (Plans & Designs or Moving Cities, although I prefer the
first one), also on Nuphonic. Also look out for Maurice Fulton's (aka
Ladyvipb) album "Stories of a broken heart and recovering" (which was
recently discussed on the list - check the archives).
I'm going off on a tangent here, but you might want to pick up ESG's
recently reissued album on Souljazz Records, Liquid Liquid's self titled
album on Grand Royal, and the "Nine O'Clock Drop" compiled by Andrew
Weatherall on Nuphonic. This stuff falls more into the minimal no-wave
disco category, but give them a listen anyways.
