LFO – “Frequencies” (1991) – #1 – #Inspirational albums in no order

Published by under Album,General,inspiration

LFO – “Frequencies” (1991)


I struggle with picking ten inspirational albums, so instead i am posting unlimited inspirational albums in no particular order. This album was a no-brainer. To say it blew my mind in 1991 is an understatement and I still play and enjoy it in 2018!

What the late great Mark Bell (RIP) and Gez Varley did back then was very different and musically challenging. It was all about the sound production. The minimal approach, the low murmuring bass and contrasting analogue screechy beeps.

Mark Bell also produced a lot of work for Bjork, and one album for Depeche Mode. For me, “Simon from Sydney” remains one of my favourite tunes of all time.



If you haven’t listened to this, then go listen and remember it was released in 1991!

The hidden bits on The Altogether

Saw a few people asking how to enter the hidden parts on The Altogether DVD. So here is the info.

At the very start you get the screen with the bent white arrow pointing right. Click OK to proceed to the main track listing (where it gives all the songs on the album). Press left again to go back to the start screen, only this time it will be slightly different. 

You can select the Doctor? video by navigating and highlighting the question mark next to the EXIT sign (a second angle feature shows photos of all the people involved in the DVD). 

The main thing is, when you eventually highlight the question mark, instead of clicking OK, press down three or four times to access the secret track ‘Monorail’. This video has two angles, one of the monorail system in Japan, the other is some random parade in America.
