When you get out of bed and the first thing that your numb feet meet is another bunch of magnetic tapes, you know it’s time either to become tidier and throw the unwanted plastic, or to take a few hours of your precious life to listen to your own lost recordings and decide what to do with them, if possible a little money.
The first solution being quite far from my natural messy inspirations, I decided to let my narcissistic nature to give my ears a bunch of my own art and, as I said, make the important decision to publish what could match my beloved fans’ taste.
To say there’s a lot would be an understatement. There’s a lot of unreleased, rare, released-but-not-available-anymore, forgotten live and other shameful demo’s that I for some had completely forgotten probably for a reason that I however can’t remember.
To release them all in a kind of box-set wouldn’t make much sense, let’s face it: there’s more waste than gems. Lovely waste for my memories, wastes that carry sweet hazy drunken memories (those early “Four Dreams Suite” bits, just to name some), but that sometimes shouldn’t leave the comfort of the tapes where they’ve been recorded.
So I simply got the divine inspiration of releasing the selected ones little-by-little, under the shape of a series of EP’s that would simply be “Gilles Snowcat’s Rare Grooves”. How many volumes will there be in total, I don’t know and it doesn’t matter actually. The first selection of rarities is now out, it’s called “Gilles Snowcat’s Rare Grooves -volume 1: Intercity Course”.
The volume 1 features 4 tracks: a new piece, a live song, a new mix of an old thing and something to relax. This stunning set comes at a price here.
