About Fantasy Black Channel in brief
Fantasy Black Channel is the debut studio album by British dance-punk band Late of the Pier. It was released on 30 July 2008 in Japan through Toshiba EMI and on 4 August 2008 in the British Isles on Parlophone, the band’s primary label. The record peaked at number 28 on the UK Albums Chart, but failed to chart in the United States. The album was recorded in lead vocalist Sam Eastgate’s bedroom in Castle Donington, England, and at several locations in London. It went through a fractured creative process that lasted more than two years and was produced by Eastgate and DJ Erol Alkan between 2007 and 2008. The band did not record any further albums following the death of drummer Ross Dawson in 2015. It was often treated as one of the best British albums of 2008 because of its eclecticism and spirit of invention. It is a collage of all the ideas, genres, and studio effects that fascinated the band members and Alkan, especially during live recording sessions. The record does not contain a unifying musical or lyrical theme; rather, it is a Collage of All the Ideas, All Over The World, All over the World, and All Over the World: The Album by Late of The Pier, is out now on Toshiba EMI, with five tracks already released as singles in the U.K. and one as a double A-side, “Bathroom Gurgle”, The Bears Are Coming, “Space and the Woods” and “Focker” were released as a single in September 2007, and the album was released in August 2008.
It has been described as a reaction to’mediocre, complacent indie-schmindie bands who find a sound and stick to it; whose songs sound exactly the same”, while lead writer and composer Eastgate has pointed out that they wanted to ‘take people past their own limits’ The band members were influenced by the music of the 1980s during these formative stages of Fantasy Black Channel even though none of them were born before 1986. They tried unconventional techniques in the avant-garde recording sessions, including stamping guitars through air vents and re-amping guitars through the air vents, and even when a track had finished undergoing studio effects, they decided to embark on a headlining UK tour. At the time, Stuart Turnbull of the BBC Collective indicated that Alkan managed to manage to turn Late ofThe Pier’s sonic attack into something more focused yet still undeniably different than their previous work. The group has since released two more singles, including a limited edition version of the single ‘Space and The Woods’ and the double-A-side ‘Heartbeat’, and a live version of ‘Focker’, which was released at the end of January 2008. They have also released an EP titled Zarcorp Demo, from which a demo single, ‘Space & The Woods’, was released.
