25/04/16 - Synth-A vinyl coming on 3rd June

The Synthi-A album, Ignition of the Sun, will be receiving a vinyl release on 3rd June. Of particular interest is that it's a different mix of the album, with a different running order and three exclusive tracks: Wave-Length, Dilation of Time and Lifecycle; this version, however, doesn't include the track Disparity in Oscillations Ab (unless, of course, it's been re-named - this wouldn't be the first time that's happened!). Expect an FSOLDigital update in the next couple of weeks. Full tracklist:

1. Ignition Of The Sun
2. Oblique Towers
3. Wave-length
4. Garden Of Syn
5. Rutt Etra
6. Dilation Of Time
7. Return Beyond The Inner Voice
8. Moon In Dissidence
9. Rivers Of Occasion
10. Sirens From A Distance
11. Opalis Amar Xam
12. Pathway To I
13. Lifecycle
14. Bridge Between Tal
15. Liquid Light Voids

08/04/16 - Touched FSOL night report

I think it's fair to say last night's show on Touched Radio was a success. We had well over a hundred listeners and the chat room was very busy. A lot of exclusive and rare material was played, along with some lesser known pieces and a few 'hits'. A great selection of tracks from 1992 - 2016 were played. It's likely many hangovers were nursed today.

Here's the final total for completely unheard tracks:
Four untitled tracks + lots of answerphone environments from the FSOL Mix at the start
Two tracks of unknown title - one not given, the other Martin lost
Peirch
Algae Floats the Water in Super Technicolor
Night Scape
Morning Mist
Ever Really Happened
Oboliss
Ocea
Supergrass - The Sky (FSOL Remix)

Alternate versions of the Bryan Ferry and Stereo MCs remixes

Tracks heard in the previous FSOL Night:
Arc City
Santana (formerly Carlos)
The JAMS - It's Grim Up North (FSOL Remix)

Plus 'official' confirmation that Cold Dark Field from the Covert album is FSOL.

Oboliss will be on a compilation called Detuned out later this year.
Night Scape will be on Touched 3, out this July.
The rest are 'in the holding pile' according to Brian. Chances are there's at least one here we'll never hear again.
