Carved out of West Coast, USA granite and shipped back aboard a floating platoon. A testament to an American dream caught napping. (lure-luxx starting in winter 94 in brighton uk samuel dook and simon vincent after intentional school failure absorbed themselves in their 4-track with untuned guitars to find routes out of seascapes. backward masking, no drum kits, recording not rehearsing it was 3 years before they played in front of anyone. saved by matthew solle after 1 show the 1997 lure-luxx played for amongst others the delgados, arab strap and sleater kinney. then followed i'm being good around the uk. andru clare rounded their first vinyl print down to 32 seconds for noizebox records. matt started up trop groove to deal with the itchy stuff coming out of sams 4-track. they then up and left for california in early 98 meeting up with super drummer brian kim to play west coast shows and sub navy studios. the subsequent output rotated heavily on college radio. on return to uk played around the country again and in belgium while 2 new records started appearing spontaneously)

HOTEL : L SHAPES CD £8 TG05
Brigadier Iain Paxon schools the electronica fools. (Mr Paxon has been attemping to forge electronica into a simple state that we can all understand. Whether it be twisting and turning a toy into a new instrument, gambling on a low quality 4-track recorder or pressing on with technology he seems to find a way of saying,we believe, something slightly new. Over the last couple of years he has contributed to a burgeoning electronica do it yourself scene in all corners of Brighton and Hove working with a variety of groups and on his own, playing live and providing workshops for a variety of projects. This is his first release as Midland Hotel).
