Swim, the label established by Colin Newman (of the currently reformed Wire) and Malka Spigel back in 1993, releases this low-price sampler CD of recent and forthcoming delights in March 2000.
swim team #1
A chance to dip into
Swim's warm and fertile waters........
|01||Malka Spigel - Tall Grey Buildings [new track]||
Swim Team #1 melts the boundaries of atmospheric, mood-shifting electronica and guitar-based rock. A diving board to launch label debutantes Symptoms, Steve Gears and child prodigy Bumpy (he's 11!) - all of whom have debut LPs slated for release this year - the compilation contains highlights from the recent past and splashy new tunes from respected outfits like
Ronnie & Clyde and Silo.
Swim Team #1 will retail for around the price of a 12 inch single.
Both Colin and Malka contribute previously unreleased songs individually and together under the guise of Immersion, while the ultra-rare Newman/ Corrado Izzo track The Narrativ makes its way back from 500 copies only and-sold-out-in-a-day obscurity on the German i220 label.
Come on in, the water's fine!
