Free Sounds fer the Weekend - Godflesh!!!


Just goes to show just how out of touch me has been with extreme music is the fact that me wasn't even aware of the existence of a dub mix album of Godflesh's Songs of Love & Hate despite it being out there fer over a decade. (It was recently re-released as a two disc box set alongside the original long player).

Thanx to the joys of the Internet, me not only found out bout it but also got to download both albums. Those not familiar with Godflesh, just imagine one of those concrete steamrollers slowly grinding away & flattening the inner highways of yer cranium.

Slow, heavy, doom-laden sounds fer a wasted industrial age. Fer a traditionalist like who likes to see four-, six-strings & two sticks in band, me was pretty fooking blown away with what a couple of noiseniks could achieve with a drum machine. Of course, Godflesh went on to become an underground sensation paving the way fer the likes of Ministry, Pitchshifter & KMFDM.

So fer yer enjoyment this weekend, me presents to you a double download package. Both the original album & its dub companion.

To download Godflesh's Songs of Love & Hate (1996), go to:

Once again Balaji you have made my day! I have the album on cassette but it sounds muddy and slow - but no more! J. Broadrick and co have never disappointed (with the exception of the Selfless EP which was just OK). The bass levels on this album will have my colleagues fleeing in aural agony and plotting to 'get rid' of me soundsystem here in the office!

anba: Waaah! Nice of you to remember. Me knows me did do a review of ori album. What me is saying me wasn't aware that a DUB companion was out there as well. Hope you enjoy this!

Premo: Time to invest in a subwoofer me thinks! Crank it up to the proverbial 11 & give yer colleagues fooking bowel movements!!!

priory of jenin: welcome to ffs. Hope you will download the albums (if u don't alreadt have em) coz the days of free downloads might just be coming to an end. Heard on news just now that Swedish courts have come to a landmark decision to JAIL owners of PirateShare.com.

I have listened the Dub version and it's quite better than the "normal" one (my point of view of course).

anfield devotee said...

Les Malais: But the original LP is no slouch although if there's one band whose work would benefit from the Dub treatment it'd be Godflesh.

Glad ye enjoyed this!
