“Dead Cities” the album

I don’t normally do album reviews and this one is around twenty years late but I remember living with my friend Milos Toth in Surry Hills. He introduced me to electronic music and the year was 1995 and it was an amazing experience for me. Milos was a talented physics student and he had experience as a programmer now he is a head lecturer at UTS and I lost touch with him by the late nineties. This guy was a very interesting thinker and was switched on, we had lots of deep talks about the universe and physics and art it was all very inspired. What he made me buy was a UK record by Future Sound of London called “Dead Cities” it was a dark dystopic album that just had me hooked for over a decade. The album had to be especially imported from the UK and I still have it. It really is a classic, the FSOL thought the album was too dark and they moved into new territory but the album itself is a classic. The FSOL are now called Amorphous Androgynous and make sitar inspired hippy music to this day. It is pretty special and they really are interesting but this one album became an obsession for me I wanted my work to be like this album. The album got lots of rotations it really was way ahead of its time and is still a recommended listen, forget their happy stuff get into this album by all means.
