Globo

Globo, who's first album, 1995's Pro-War, won them plaudits from the NME and Melody Maker, as well the dance music press and the broadsheets, set about making their second album the following year. However, a single release, Thirteen, mired the band in legal problems due to the appearance of a sample taken from a police interview tape, and Globo found their new record company were unwilling to release the album. The album was shelved and instead This Time It's Globo was released, a collection of rare tracks and b-sides. While making their third, as yet unreleased, album, Globo found the tapes for This Is London, 1966, and decided to put it through their 21st century studio process and make it available for release.

Globo - This Is London, 1966



Sometimes beautiful, sometimes intense and nearly always very dark and paranoid, This Is London, 1966 is a collection of electronic grooves and moods that reveals the trio's art state at the time. It was mostly put together in 1996, when Britpop was ruling the roost, and electronic music was dominated by genres, none of which could (or would) accomodate Globo. Globo's oblique and often very funny commentaries on the culture they saw around them are probably more powerful in today's context then they were in the 1990s. This Time It's Globo is a manifesto of futurist nostalgia.
