Our man Steve Brooks has recently gotten some e-ttention on the ol’ blogosphere, with a newly posted writeup on the massive FLOOR box set, and a freshly unearthed TORCHE interview conducted a couple years ago.
Longrunning Canadian rag Exclaim! has posted a writeup about the FLOOR - Below & Beyond Box Set, including this little gem:
“this stands as one of the coolest/geekiest things out there”
We couldn’t agree more. Click here to read the whole thing.
Fairly related to that, Mental Funeral has posted an old interview with Steve from a couple years back, mostly regarding TORCHE. It covers a variety of topics including the weird reactions they got from MOGWAI‘s fanbase, the early incarnation of In Return as a 7″, and this awesome reply when asked about the unreleased FLOOR material:
“The discography probably will never happen”
CLASSIC. Well, glad we proved him wrong! Click here to read the whole thing.
The massive Below & Beyond Box Set is still available for pre-order, but things are entering various stages of production and we will undoubtedly take the pre-orders (and exclusive t-shirt offer) down at some point to prepare for it’s actual existence! Yep, we’re inching closer to the physical release of this unreal 10xLP, 1×7″, 8xCD complete discography… so if you want to get in on the pre-order for this beast, now is the time.
