Loop biography
UK act LOOP was founded in 1986, with the initial line-up consisting of Robert Hampson (vocals, guitar), his wife Bex (drums) and Glen Ray (bass). Their first release came in early 1987, with the EP 16 Dreams.

Some quick line-up changes followed, and when the band's full length debut Heaven's End was issued in November 1987 Hampson was the only remaining founding member, joined by James Endeacott (guitars), John Wills (drums) and Neil Mackay (bass).

Loop's three-chord music, blending influences from bands like Can, Hawkwind and The Stooges to a musical potpurri with strong similarities to fellow UK act Spacemen 3 became rather popular, their debut album reached the fourth spot in the UK indie charts, while their sophomore priduction Fade Out from 1989 topped the UK indie charts and peaked at 51st place in the UK pop charts.

Endeacott left Loop in 1989, to be replaced by Scott Dowson (guitars). This revamped line-up issued A Gilded Eternity in 1990, artistically and commercially regarded as the band's finest moment; peaking at number 39 in the UK pop charts and generally regarded as a fine album overall.

Sadly this piece proved to be the final effort of this outfit, who disbanded in 1991.

A Gilded Eternity
Loop Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Bonnek
Special Collaborator Prog Metal Team

4 stars It is no secret that the kraut and psychedelic rock of the early 70's had a huge influence on the UK post-rock scene of the following decade. A good example is the late 80's psychedelic noise rock of Jesus & Mary Chain and the bands that followed in their wake. Together with Spaceman2, Loop was the most interesting of those bands. They took the sound of J&MC, minimized the pop and image focus of that band and instead expanded the music with strong hypnotizing grooves and wild wahwah jams. A Gilded Eternity was their last album and together with the preceding Fade Out, it's the one to get.

If you prefer symphonic and compositional splendour, this album won't be for you. The music we're looking at here is one (or two) chord songs that sacrificed melody for groove and composition for jamming. But if that doesn't scare you then you might need to check out this album as this band managed to get their grooves going like no other. They have a very solid rhythm section at the core; the repetitive drums and bass are very prominent and keep pounding at an entrancing mid-tempo pace; layers of guitars, wahwah, reverb, fuzz, feedback and other effects cast a hazy blanket over them. The whispered shoegazer vocals complete the dazed and out worldly vibe.

Fans of Guru Guru, Amplifier, early Hawkwind and other rocking space-psych-kraut hybrids might find a lot to relish here. The band used to be quite popular 20 years ago but has been kind of forgotten in the huge vault of rock history. But fear not, they sound ageless, fresh and groovy as they ever did. I much enjoyed revisiting their catalogue for reviewing them and would recommend this album as their major achievement. 4 psych-rock stars

2 stars I really can't recommend Loop's debut very much. While their second and third album might appeal to space-proggers that can handle a bit of Jesus & Mary Chain on kraut-dope, this one doesn't get off anywhere really. In fact, this will add nothing to the known Jesus & Mary Chain recipe: reverby beat-box, fuzzed-out guitars with lots of delay and wah-wah, simple bass loops and echo-whispered shoe gazer vocals. The Can and Stooges influences which would make their ensuing albums enjoyable are still pretty much absent here.

Except for Too Real to Feel there is not much here that I would recommend to anyone but the most fervent Jesus & Mary Chain fans, which I'm sure are thinly spread here :-)

Loop Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Bonnek
Special Collaborator Prog Metal Team

4 stars Imagine Hawkwind had started their career in 1989 instead of 1969. The result might have been pretty close to what Loop pulls off here.

I was a bit surprised to find Loop on the PA pages. When this came out it reminded us of The Stooges and Jesus & Mary Chain. Two bands that are not very prog I would say... But Loop takes their trip miles beyond the limited horizons of J&MC. Only the sound is reminiscent. In fact, at the end of the 80's, Loop was one of the last indie bands to emerge from the UK that could stir up some emotions in me. Together with Spacemen 3 they made psychedelic space rock for the new age. Spaceman 3 was a bit more diverse and more rock song oriented. Loop was a much more droning affair. I don't know if there is a relation but the first two albums of Monster Magnet do have a strong echo of the sound here.

If you ask me to describe them now I'd say the create an irresistible hypnotic mix of 1969-Stooges, 1970-Can and a bit of 1971-Hawkwind. Heavy on sustained guitars, delay and wahwah pedals.

The interesting thing about this album is that at the time of its release, I didn't know next to nothing about space rock and kraut. I was raised on symphonic prog and I knew just 2 songs from Can and that one from Hawkwind. But thanks to this very album this was soon to change. I started to investigate Can because the original CD issue had an 11 minute cover of Can's Mother Sky. And Hawkwind was soon to follow because of a Brainstorm cover that Monster Magnet did a few years later.

Or how indie can bring you back to the prog dynasty. A really good album but probably of little interest to prog fans.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
