The disc starts off with sort of a live sound as one can hear people talking and just a little bit of electronic gurgling in the background before one of the members of the group calls out for people to stop flashing lights and the track creeps into motion. It's a fairly dark sounding effort, with a rhythm comprised of a muted blast of wind noise and plenty of little blips and squirts to go around. by SaturnVoyage May 17 2019 via iPhone. No products in the cart. ISDN Cassette Album. Out of stock. Third album from The Future Sound Of London, released in 1995. We have a very limited stock of this original cassette release. All tapes are unplayed but due to the age of these items some of the packaging may be slightly marked. Instead of touring for the Lifeforms album in 1994, they instead set up a series of appearances on a variety of radio stations, as well as concert dates involving broadcasting to specific venues. ISDN, named after the high-speed connection that made these ventures possible, compiles a variety of cuts from four different sessions, including one with Robert Fripp. FSOL - ISDN - 3 Appendage, FSOL-ISDN - трек 7, FSOL - ISDN - 2 The Far Out Son Of Lung And The Ramblings Of A Madman, FSOL - ISDN - Egypt, Appendage, FSOL '94 ISDN - Slider, FSOL - Smokin Japanese Babe и другие скачать в mp3 и слушать музыку онлайн бесплатно. 2 The Far Out Son Of Lung And The Ramblings Of A Madman - FSOL - ISDN.

This wrecked-in many, many heads back in the day and probably keeps doing so. Something of an apex in the 'sample the living sh*t out of everything and process it' approach to production of the early-mid 1990s. Captures the post-Cold War early-internet head space very well; as though you are peering into a mad laboratory of EMS engineers on a LSD-drenched post-MKUltra freakout (the 2003 German documentary 'The Net' is a perfect visual companion to this) . It also sounds as cinematic, and more 'Blade Runner' than just about any other ambient-techno record you'll ever find. VERY Essential.

Just A F*ckin Idiot contain's samples from the old Disney sci-fi movie The Black Hole. Not sure of the "Stop flashing your lights" bit at the start, sounds like Stone Roses Ian Brown, can anyone confirm that???

Have you actually verified this claim for yourself? . .

Its Bernard Sumner. and sampled from Joy Division live at Preston Warehouse February 28, 1980.

Brian Dougans has confirmed a few times on Facebook that it's definitely not Bernard Sumner.

What evidence do you have for that though? Other sources say Joy Division, not New Order. This would make more sense, given Ian Curtis had epilepsy which would explain the request to 'leave the lights alone'.

"Could you leave the lights alone, please? Stop flashing the fucking lights." is Bernard Sumner of New Order, taken from a New Order live bootleg.

excellent ambient house of the 90s, out there w Mixmaster Morris,The Orb,Aphex Twin & Orbital..Other samples used are 'Everybody online-looking good!'from Aliens & some crunching sounds from Terminator I or II(when the exoskeletons crush real skeletons in the future scenes..).

Ambient house??? :/ You have to re-listen for it maybe....

<I>ISDN</I> is not just a high-speed internet connection, it’s a compilation of live recordings that the Future Sound of London did, merged seamlessly into one another. It’s futuristic in the best way possible with sounds and textures and sonic images floating in and out of cyberspace. There’s the super-futuristic jazz of “The Far Out Son of Lung and the Ramblings of a Madman” (led in by a sample from <I>Aliens</I>) and “Smokin’ Japanese Babe.” “Slider” is as dark funk as any I’ve heard, while “Eyes Pop – Skin Explodes – Everyone Dead” sounds like electronic Baroque music. “Tired” starting with a delicate guitar before going into some chugging beats, then some icy synths. That’s what’s so wonderful about this album: it’s a journey in the best sense, with new things to hear and see around every corner. “Egypt” goes for ethnic electro, while “A Study of Six Guitars” has the guitars, definitely, but also some industrial percussion too. Plug in to <I>ISDN</I> today.

the pictures provided here are only of the front and back of the inner cd sleeve--the outer sleeve is not pictured here (as of 12/2003). the inner sleeve is itself wrapped in a folded cardboard outer sleeve (basically a tri-fold type of sleeve) which is held shut with velcro tabs. the inside of this sleeve is a panaramic of slick 3d graphics, with a glossy finish, while the outside of the sleeve is a tougher laminate type of finish to protect the cardboard. "FSOL ISDN" is embossed in large letters across the center of the front cover, with a sticker affixed along the top indicating "a limited edition of 10,000 copies". by today's standards, this release will probably seem very cheesy and dated to many listeners. it's worth checking out if you haven't ever heard it: this was an important release for FSOL, and FSOL were very influential artists at that time (early 90's). to understand where "electronic listening music" (or ambient, or idm) is today, one needs to be familiar with the work of FSOL.
