PLANET DOG RECORDS: "FEED YOUR HEAD" Collection
FEED YOUR HEAD - Volume 1 (1993)
The first in a series of jaw dropping ambient dub compilations from pioneer techno label Planet Dog Records, which spawned such acts as Eat Static, Banco De Gaia, Astralasia, Timeshard and System 7! This chapter starts off with a soft-spoken mental monster from Astralasia! The Eat Static track is very tribal and slow, unlike a majority of their tracks, and rocks the didgeridoo like you wouldn't believe! The remix of the Banco De Gaia song is totally beautiful.
This compilation also features some great space tracks, and a track by Eat Static side-project The Ullulators! As it says in the cd inlay, "Now sit back and glisten"!!!
1. Astralasia - Twilight Whirl
2. The Drum Club - Furry Meadows (Dogstar Mix)
3. Eat Static - Kothluwalawa
4. Banco De Gaia - Qurna (Haj Ali's Birthday Mix)
5. Pressure Of Speech - Surveillance
6. Optic Eye - Blue Dreamers
7. The Knights Of The Occasional Table - Rain
8. Tuu - One Thousand Years
9. System 7 - Habibi (The Camel Mix)
10.Nodens Ictus - Plurlngrium
11.The Ullulators - "...And Hardly Any Ears!"
"To find your mind, you have to lose it first."
FEED YOUR HEAD - Volume 2 (1994)
My personal favorite of the FYH series! This is just about as deep as ambient dub gets. Every track on this one is great. The album never gets boring - which is saying a lot for an ambient dub compilation - it is always changing and is really damn intense in some points.
My favorite tracks on this compilation is "Anacoluthon", "Schmoo Dub" and "Travelling Without Moving".
**This is one of the best albums-to-have-sex-to in the world!
1. Makyo - Dakini (Sky Dancer Mix)
2. Code - Parsifal
3. Optic Eye - Anacoluthon
4. Inner Space - Warrior
5. Children Of The Bong - Symbol 1
6. The Drum Club - Boom Mantra (Sea Full Of Stars Mix)
7. Spooky - Schmoo Dub

11.Astralasia - Ignarus (Loonar Poona)
"There are things that I can do for you - beyond your wildest dreams!"

Planet Dog Records kicks it up a notch in the third installment of the FYH series. This one has faster beats and a more futuristic sound, but still remains beautiful and seductive! Some fantastic stuff on this one, especially from The Starseeds, Prism, and Freed!
