LOOP reform!
 
Apparently LOOP are reforming. Can't wait, this is going to be awesome.

Statement from Robin Hampson
Thank You all... please be patient. News coming very soon.

I will say this... the line-up is Mr John Wills (Drums) Mr Neil Mackay (Bass) Mr Scott Dowson (Guitar) and some grey haired old fool who should know better grumbling into a mic

That's yer lot for now

nice

I really hope this is for the sake of producing something new, not to participate in the nostalgia industry. Although Hampson has never seemed the sort to do anything just for the sake of money.

wooooo. I've been absolutely destroying heaven's end of late, such a brutal record.

they better come out to aus, I need some hampson in my life.

hope this doesn't mean the end of main (again) though.

Were Loop even popular enough for this to be a money/nostalgia thing?

Phlegmscope 05.03.2013 12:14 PM

I dunno, but a band like this might have a bigger following now than it had in it's heyday.

Savage Clone 05.10.2013 11:31 PM

I'm excited. They were my favorite band at the time and have remained a major touchstone in all the years since.

It'd be nice to see Melly coming out of his Barrett period for this. And Demonrail too.

holy shit that is a brilliant setlist. blood live would be insane! the only thing that could make that any better is a version of black sun, but regardless that's fucking awesome. what the hell is deadly?? volume??

I hate living in a dull shithole, god damnit.

pad_023 11.18.2013 11:01 PM

Yeah it was really fucking loud, ears are still ringing.

Deadly sounded like a new song.

guest 11.18.2013 11:35 PM

that's really cool, many thanks dude. so jealous.

blunderbuss 11.19.2013 02:01 AM

Last night was brilliant. I'll be seeing them again in Brighton in a couple of weeks, and I'm very excited.

pad_023 12.07.2013 03:18 PM

Saw them twice again this week and man were they fantastic.

I appreciate it's all old material but being too young to experience them 'back in the day' it's been great. They sound really tight too, the Bristol show nearly destroyed my hearing.

Hopefully going to catch them a couple more times next year.

new ep streaming http://noisey.vice.com/blog/loop-array-1-ep-premiere

much better than it has any right to be and actually feels more vital than loop did even in their heyday, the moments when hampson draws in his acousmatic works (on the final two tracks particularly) are fantastic.
