Our man Steve Brooks has recently gotten some e-ttention on the ol' blogosphere, with a newly posted writeup on the massive FLOOR box set, and a freshly unearthed TORCHE interview conducted a couple years ago.
Longrunning Canadian rag Exclaim! has posted a writeup about the FLOOR - Below & Beyond Box Set, including this little gem:
"this stands as one of the coolest/geekiest things out there"
We couldn't agree more. Click here to read the whole thing.
Fairly related to that, Mental Funeral has posted an old interview with Steve from a couple years back, mostly regarding TORCHE. It covers a variety of topics including the weird reactions they got from MOGWAI's fanbase, the early incarnation of In Return as a 7", and this awesome reply when asked about the unreleased FLOOR material:
"The discography probably will never happen"
CLASSIC. Well, glad we proved him wrong! Click here to read the whole thing.
The massive Below & Beyond Box Set is still available for pre-order, but things are entering various stages of production and we will undoubtedly take the pre-orders (and exclusive t-shirt offer) down at some point to prepare for it's actual existence! Yep, we're inching closer to the physical release of this unreal 10xLP, 1x7", 8xCD complete discography... so if you want to get in on the pre-order for this beast, now is the time.
* PRE-order the FLOOR box set @ Robotic Empire's Online Store
* Preview 10 tracks (8 previously unreleased) from this beastly set at the FLOOR myspace page
