I think this is the only salvation now. Dance music taught us how to use the studio in a new way, but we have to now take that knowledge and move on with it. This stuff, electronic music, is not dead. It's a process that is ongoing. We have to take hold of the past and go forward with it The piece contained reworked material from their archives and newer, more abstract ambient music.
The piece was coupled with a video called "Stereo Sucks", marking the band's theories on the limitations of stereo music, which was released on a DVD packaged with issue of Future Music Magazine in December and on FSOL's own download site in March They also moved into creating their own sounds when they began constructing electronic instruments, the result of which can be heard on the release Hand-Made Devices.
At their website Glitch TV where the motto is "[A] sudden interruption in sanity, continuity or programme function" they sell and explain their devices such as the "Electronic Devices Digital Interface" glitch equipment. Inthe band uploaded several archive tracks online, for the first time revealing much of their unreleased work and unveiling some of the mystery behind the band. The old FSOL material, including the previously unreleased album Environmentsalong with a selection of newer experiments, the 5.
The FSOLdigital platform has performed very well - we are delighted that people still dig us - we dig you all too. In early Marchthe band released a new online album as Amorphous Androgynous entitled The Peppermint Tree and Seeds of Superconsciousnesswhich they describe as "A collection of psychedelic relics from The Amorphous Androgynous, ".
The release retains the sound of their last two psychedelic albums, while expanding on the element of funk first introduced on 's Alice in Ultraland. They recorded their following album, The Woodlands of Oldunder the alias of their imaginary engineer Yage. Unlike the techno work recorded as Yage inthis new record was darker, more trip hop and world music -oriented and featured ex- Propellerheads member Will White.
The remaining shows appeared on the band's official site. Many of the new tracks appeared on the band's Environments series.
Cobain has described the new music as having "the introspective, kind of euphoric sadness that was always there in the FSOL melodies". From this point, the band have been alternating their focus between different projects. Whilst the Archives feature old, unreleased material, the Environments albums feature a mixture of old demos, recently completed, and new tracks.
The first two were released under the Amorphous Androgynous alias, subtitled "Cosmic Space Music" and "Pagan Love Vibrations", with the first taking over two years to compile, mix and gain sample clearance, both featuring the band's psychedelic influences.
A third is set for release sometime inand will be more electronic, mixed by the Future Sound of London. Noel Gallagher of British rock band Oasisafter hearing the first release, became a fan and asked the band to remix the following Oasis single "Falling Down".
The Amorphous Androgynous responded We Have Explosive - The Future Sound Of London - The Greatest Hits 1999 (CD) a 5 part, minute Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble remix, which Noel liked enough to release on its own 12". On 6 July it was announced that Noel Gallagher's second solo album will be in collaboration with The Amorphous Androgynous, and is set for release in What a Life! However, as the project is currently shelved,  the group have returned to original material, releasing the first in a series of Monstrous Bubble Soundtracksentitled The Cartel.
The group continue to give updates for the Galaxial Pharmaceutical news site and forum,  while largely releasing material through their FSOLDigital imprint. They remain prolific, working on multiple projects at once. On 26 Aprilthe band released Yageconsisting of eleven songs.
The album was also released on vinyl and CD on Record Store Day that year; the latter release featured an additional two tracks. The next year another album, Cascadewas released. Nevertheless, Virgin records still controls FSOL's back catalog and was going to release the Teachings from the Electronic Brain compilation without them, but the duo insisted on taking control of the production of the project.
Why is it, everybody, from the fucking fish and chip shop to a magazine ends up selling itself, getting the millions and retiring.
Why don't people keep going with it, why can't they change it so that it keeps being important to them. Why didn't Anita Roddick keep going with Body Shopwhy did it get so alien to her that she had to sell it, why? Surely she's making so many millions she can get the right people that she loves to keep going with the ethos; there's something dangerous there.
Cobain has said that FSOL's mentality has always been about making a journey of an album rather than focusing on trying to have hit singles. He said that they had several top 40 singles and albums in the 90s because they had enough fans and had built up enough of a reputation to achieve these hits while still concentrating on the album rather than any potential singles during their time at Virgin.
