When I was a nipper you either liked Spacemen 3 or Loop. It was very much like if you watched Magpie or Blue Peter. There was no scope for sitting on the fence...it was one or the other. Zip forwards far too many years and Reactor have re-released Loop’s awesome 1987 debut ‘Heaven’s End’ on vinyl and this is the first time it’s been made available since the debut sold out (many many moons ago). Robert Hampson has remastered it as well (not that I think it needed remastering as the original is simply a classic but it’s a sign of the times).
Anyway the vinyl has just been released as it was back then (ie. just a single LP and if you want all the bonus shit you’ll need to get the 2CD version) and there’s more excitement as ‘Fade Out’ is coming next year. I’m sure I’d be more excited if I didn’t have these already! Musically ‘Heaven’s End’ is a stone cold indie psych rock fuzz classic with more wah-wah and reverb than you can chuck a shitty stick at. It’s a total MC5/Stooges fest with its big riffs, chugging beats, low down in the mix vocals and general dirty sounding scuzzy hypnotic cyclical grooves. Put simply, Loop rock and this album rocks its tits off. It’s brilliant to hear it again and ‘Head On’ will live on as a stone cold psych rock classic. This brings back memories of me flinging myself around at indie discos like a huge prick. File under Can, Stooges, MC5, early Telescopes, Suicide etc...you know the score.
