Product Description

Product Description

• Inspired by the likes of Slowdive and Ride, Chapterhouse were part of the short-lived 'shoe-gazing' scene of the early 90's, but unlike other acts who aquired a set of guitar pedals and headed off to the nearest recording studio, they mixed beats with their wall-of-sonic-guitar-fuzz to create records to stimulate both mind and feet!

• This newly expanded reissue of their classic debut"Whirpool", now includes all the B-sides from the singles 'Pearl', 'Falling Down' and the 'Sunburst EP', along with 'Die Die Die' which was originally only available on a free record that came with the vinyl version of the album and is on CD for the first time.

• Produced by the band alongside Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins), John Fryer (This Mortal Coil), Stephen Hague (New Order) and Ralph Jezzard, and featuring guest vocals from Rachel Goswell (Slowdive). The liner notes are from music journalist and long-time associate Andrew Perry, along with the lyrics in full (documented here for the first time), plus many photos, memorabilia and other clippings from the bands personal archive, and images of all of the releases featured on the album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Expanded version of 1991 debut album 8 Mar 2006
By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:Audio CD
As is evident from such bands as Jenifever, Radio Dept., Engineers, Amusement Parks on Fire, Battles, Explosions in the Sky, Sigur Ros, Mogwai, Ladytron, Joy Zipper & Ambulance Ltd there are many acts which explore the terrain of shoegazing and are probably influenced by such bands as Boo Radleys, Chapterhouse, Lush, Pale Saints, Ride, and Slowdive - bands who despite being tagged shoegazers fitted into a general world that included Cocteau Twins, Eno's ambient work, AR Kane, My Bloody Valentine, Dead Can Dance, Loop-Main, Spacemen 3, Talk Talk, Dinosaur Jr., Galaxie 500, Seefeel, Levitation,Opal and Durutti Column. Ignore the negative tag that shoegazing became when grunge came into vogue and music journalists pretended never to have been that interested...
Chapterhouse, like Slowdive, came from Reading and were part of a wider Thames Valley collective that included Ride, Swervedriver and Thousand Yard Stare. I suppose their name came from a Dune-novel rather than the upper-class college most of Genesis attended? They appeared in 1990 with the 'Free Fall' and 'Sunburst' e.p.'s and a strong live reputation - the frequent encore was their Loop-style thrash 'Die Die Die' - which was once hard to find and is now included as a bonus track.
1991 saw the release of debut 'whirlpool' which has dated wonderfully - unlike several albums by their peers (think 'Everything's Alright Forever', Curve, The Catherine Wheel, Moose & Pale Saints) - the sound is close to that of AR Kane and Cocteau Twins and all the better for that. The original 9-track album is a lush sequence, ideal for a summer day, some perfect sex, hallucinatory plane-trips, insomnia, pastoral exploration or ethereal contemplation (as Julian Cope once said "It's just like sleeping gas- it's so ethereal!").

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice reissue 10 May 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have contacted the record company, Cherry Red and they inform me that the 2 tracks Rain and Die, Die, Die were pulled by the band at the last minute, due to space constraints on the CD. The literature had already been sent to the press, leading to the incorrect tracklisting.

Rain was a great cover of the Beatles classic, where Die, Die, Die was a thrashy loud noisemonster of a special 12", given free with the vinyl LP. Not really in keeping with the rest of the material on this CD so an easy one to drop - shame.

The music that is contained on this CD is of its time and doesn't hold up as well as its successor, Blood Music. That's not to say I don't love it, I do. Some class tracks on here such as the sublime Pearl, Something More (EP version, which I always preferred), If You Want Me - a 2 minute masterpiece and my favourite album track, Feel The Same - my favourite "B-side".

I just hope they intend to reissue "Blood Music" together with their best EP, "Mesmerise". They might have space to include Rain on this but I'd imagine drum club remixs of She'a a Vision etc will win out. Die, Die, Die would sound even more strange on a "Blood Music" reissue

The re-release on Cherry Red is a complete rip-off. I am 100% sure it has been mastered from low-level MP3 (96 kbps or worse). Really annoying.

No one who treats his customers like Cherry Red should complain about illegal downloads. I deeply regret having spent my money on this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Low quality source cd - Cherry Red Mistake 23 May 2010
By Edmund
Format:Audio CD
A previous reviewer of this is indeed correct.

A mistake was made in the creation of this cd, so the first 9 tracks which made up the original Dedicated records version of 'Whirpool' come from a lower quality mp3 source.
There's a lot more information to be found on the subject on various shoegazing forums, but the easy way to tell if you have an 'mp3 sourced' version (Cherry Red having repressed the cd using the correct source - though they've now apparently run out of this version and are again issuing incorrect cds), is that the corrected cd has a reference TC2159 on the inner cd ring.

On some later incorrect cds there is also the wrong version of 'Something More' on the cd; the Robin Guthrie produced 3.31 version is on the Dedicated original, a 3.21 version from either of the ep releases on the incorrect cd, though it's harder to confirm which and it's not shown on Musicbrainz, so the TC2159 reference is key.

If buying a used copy, I suggest going for the Dedicated original and a copy of Rowderbout, which would give you the same tracks; unless the seller can confirm the TC2159 reference is on the disc ring.

Instructions for finding the corrected Cherry Red version; "if anyone is unsure which version they have, they should turn the disc over and look at the writing around the central hole on the silver playing side. You should see the catalogue number CDMRED304, and opposite, the reference TC2159. This means you have the corrected version."

A shame too, as the album itself is excellent and one of my favourites.
