About this item
The English shoegaze band Slowdive formed in 1989 and primarily consisted of Nick Chaplin (bass), Rachel Goswell (vocals, guitar), Christian Savill (guitar) and the band’s primary songwriter Neil Halstead (vocals, guitar).
Souvlaki is Slowdive’s second studio album, originally released in 1993. It’s considered as one of the best Shoegaze albums of all time, but didn’t receive much credit during its release. The album contains synthesizer contributions from Brian Eno on “Sing” (which he co-wrote) and “Here She Comes”
It was a joy to witness a record which was given no hope (by the snide music press) gather genuine grass roots, word of mouth praise over the ensuing decades until it ended up being seen as a classic pop record, Shoegaze or otherwise.
Andy says: One of my favourite albums given a beautiful reissue on glorious coloured vinyl. I loved their comeback LP but for me, this is their best record.
