interested in hearing more on this. i was not surprised to hear their dim view of the Riverruns, but it caused some indigestion nonetheless, especially as some of us have been saying it was their best work until all of this.

'Do Breakers Trip'. I don't understand why this was released. I've tried so many times and it still sounds absolutely bloody horrible. Even as someone who likes Hundred Weight Hammer and Ring Road and Molehill and various other un-Underworldy tracks, I can't find any pleasure from this track at all.

I actually like "Do Breakers Trip," prefer it over "Hundred Weight Hammer, "Molehill," and a few other Drift songs.

Yeah, Karl's downtrodden vocal on "Breakers do trip" brings the track down. But as an instrumental, there's a lot going on. I wish I could clock it all, but I find it a bit of a throwback and interesting.

yeah, same. it's kind of the best case scenario when it comes to that kind of track they do imo.

Really enjoying the ‘Drift’ box set, a lot to digest which I suspect will take quite a while.

I have the extra downloads burned to 5 CDs, and have made some artworks and put them on my website in case they are any use.

They follow Simon Taylor at Tomato’s designs (fairly) closely. The fonts I used to match are Compacta (with a manual italicisation, forwards and backwards) and the wonderful OCR-B 10 bit. The Compacta seems to be a slightly different version as the bar on the T and similar features is slightly thicker on the album. Not sure if anyone has mentioned the fonts before in the thread.

Do Breakers Trip sounds a lot like something Karl would've done during that brief solo phase when he was working with Brian Eno. you can practically hear his voice on the track
