Product Description

Slowdive was an English alternative rock band that
formed in 1989. The band was formed in Reading and
primarily consisted of Nick Chaplin (bass), Rachel
Goswell (vocals, guitar), Neil Halstead (vocals, guitar),
and Christian Savill (guitar). Several drummers played
with the band, including Ian McCutcheon, Adrian Sell,
and Simon Scott.
Signing with Creation, Slowdive's early singles
received glowing press and chart placement. Their
debut single, Slowdive, thinly veiled an indebtedness
to the Byrds and My Bloody Valentine, with no
traceable punk influence Just after Slowdive's
recording, The sleepy escapist psychedelia of both
Morningrise and Holding Our Breath made significant
impressions on the British indie chart.
The press dubbed them part of "The Scene That
Celebrates Itself" - a small, loose, conglomerate of
like-minded bands who could be seen at each other's
shows, frequently hanging out together within the
same circle. This "scene" included Lush, Moose,
Swervedriver, Curve, and Blur.
This anthology compiled and annotated by Mojo s
Kieron Tyler is a fine stepping on point for anyone
interested in the works of Slowdive. This is the first
in series of releases by the band on Cherry Red.

having heard a slowdive song on the soundtrack to mysterious skin a few years ago i always wanted to buy their albums but never got round to it,now the shining breeze is a good introduction and i will check out their other albums. ,slowdive's dreamy ambient psychedelia just blows my mind and reminds me of the verve's debut album along with ride and more recent artists like boards of canada.i cant recommend this highly enough. perfect for listening to on cold dark winter nights.

An excellent album for any fan of indie music, totally laid back, similar to ride or galaxy 500. Slowdive definitely a hidden gem, can't believe i missed them at the time! Cannot fault this collection, absolute bargain!

Slowdive were one of the leading protagonists of the Shoegazing scene of the early 1990s. Hailing from Reading their major influences were My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth as well as Pink Floyd and the Beatles producer Phil Spectors wall of sound. The vocals are shared between Rachael Goswell and Neil Halstead and are beautiful as is the music. I'd recommend listening on headphones at night with a glass of wine. If you like this another album I'd recommend is Rides first album NowhereNowhere: Remastered.
