So, a bit of back story. I have been attempting to get more into the streaming thing rather than playing my self made recordings of my vinyl in my car. Driving back from Glasgow a couple of nights ago, wondering what I wanted to listen to, it came to mind I hadn't listened to my old fave Squarepusher for a while. I looked him up, but this album isn't on Spotify yet.

That surprised me, as this was his best work in my opinion. I think I listened to it non-stop in '96! So I had to give it a spin when I got home, and also check out the Discogs entry. First of all, listening to this again after some years, it has not lost any shine. Some amazing tracks on here. Listening to the intro of Tundra sent huge fuzzy shivers down my spine. Squarepusher Theme, North Circular, Theme From Ernest Borgnine, U.F.O.'s Over Leytonston - all amazing. The Swifty is still my personal fave, dub jazz drum and bass, amazing playing and programming and feel.

Another shock is this hasn't been reissued on vinyl to date (Sept 2018). This release is for sure up there for me for a top 10 album to put on a good vinyl system, crank it up, sit back, and soak it in.

This is prime time Squarepusher. Hard Normal Daddy and Feed Me Weird Things are two albums that I don't think in all these years Tom has surpassed (and both have, let's say, questionable names for albums, don't you think?) . His newer works just don't reflect his creativity in the correct way. FMWT is a bit darker than Hard Normal Daddy but does not lack in the insane drum programming and Amen chopping. The track Tundra is my favourite Squarepusher track to date, at the time I'd heard nothing like it. Around this time Tom had wanted to bring drum 'n' bass / jungle to a much darker psychedelia and nothing screams his motives more than Tundra. This gloomy vibe is not continued so much throughout the album but this allows for tracks like Theme From Ernest Borgnine, which has a much lighter lead and almost flowing drums - I always feel like this track describes an escape from a gushing river. Fantastic album. If you find it for a good price on vinyl grab it and run.

This and Big loada are still my faves.. Port Rhombus is also very good.. It saddens me to see the kind of music he is making now, but everyone moves on.

Feed me with weird things is one of my favourite release from Squarepusher. Classic

Great "broken sixteenth-note" drum stuff!! Some music like this on vinyl is a VALUE...let's 'try' it...

A bit of a landmark album, truth be told. Head straight for side C and the skittery headmash, "North Circular" - truly one of the best technical rhythms laid on vinyl of all time. Future Jazz? who cares....and the rest of the album ain't too far behind either. My mint copy is staying in my collection!

Got this on my headphones now. This album is still excellent... incredibly varied, often moody (Windscale 2), sometimes downright tongue-in-cheek (smedley's melody). Tundra is astounding still. I don't know if Mr Jenkinson was living up north when he made it but it certainly seems to sum up my experience. Wonderful.

Personally I'd love to hear Tom re-explore some of his earlier sounds (coherent jazz, intricate, painstakingly obsessive and classic rhythmic innovations) like this album, Budakhan Mindphone, and of course Hard Normal Daddy.. Songs like "Squarepusher Theme", "Tundra", "Kodack", and so many others are (imho) the essence of what electronic music perfectionism is about... The more recent sounds he has delved into (the kind of stunts he pulls on his live shows) once had their charm but there is hardly much enduring in his late endeavours, I feel, as compared with this album, which is unmistakably one of the most precious vinyl LPs that I've ever owned. I suspect hard drugs might have something to do with it, which would be quite shameful indeed.. (of course, only if in case of a creative burn-out) This album for me is a 5/5.
