Artist Info

The Amorphous Androgynous

Powered by Audioscrobbler™AMORPHOUS ANDROGYNOUS is the psychedelic band created by The Future Sound of London, A SAMPLERDELIC FUNKOID ROKTRONIC cosmic ambient oozescape merging the sonic with the lyric -the beat with the beat-less -the classic rock with the epic freeform roll -the mantra with the tantra -to convert the how? into the Tao -To merge the possibilities of technology with the plausibility of NO-OLOGY -to combine a love for the forgotten treasures of old with the unfolding mysteries of the new-to combine the electromagnetic machines with psychedelic dreams, cosmic consciousness with sweet bloody mindedness- the lizards with the wizards and the infant with the Sage and to come out the other side smelling vaguely of roses or maybe sandalwood or even EUCALYPTUS!! MAY ALL BE LOVED MAY ALL BE FED MAY ALL BE HEALED. Sometime during the 5 year recording /production and writing process of their 6th album THE ISNESS , The Future Sound of London (Brian Dougans, Garry Cobain ) began to realise that this latest paradigm had accidentally formed a 'virtual' band and they were no longer who they thought they were-whether partially , completely or maybe even momentarily . Further to that it was no longer strictly true to call it FSOL. After the naturally arising initial confusion caused by such free wheelin' artistic abandon had cleared for long enough to catch a glimpse of the multi splendoured cosmic potential that lay ahead it was decided to create a new/old band and for that 'band' to take the name The Amorphous Androgynous .It included in its tender folds a varied and motley bunch of friends and musicians who had contributed throughout the extensive recording process 1997-2002 in which the album was conceived and recorded- It was 'virtual' because the musicians never actually performed in a room together. They each came in turn and laid down tracks and performed to an evolving musical oozescape that became increasingly far fetched and adventurous in the minds and wizardly hands of Dougans and Cobain as the time spun by from 1997 to 2002 . By the time of its release in late 2002 THE ISNESS revealed itself to be a 'cosmic psychedelic soup of influence' like a 'modern progtronic-rock opera' for the 21st century- it wasn't far off in terms of scope, adventure and imagination to the Beatles' Seargent Pepper's which had been first heard in that pivotal year of 1967- coincidentally the year Cobain was born. Interestingly this the most adventurous of the BEATLES" work erupted from the frustration , restriction and mundanity of 'gigging' and its vast sonic scope was never attempted live because it was deemed too daunting a task. So it remained one of the most startling 'studio' creations of musical history. Similarly the Isness completed at FSOL's studio the 'GALAXIAL PHARMACEUTICAL' mid 2002 was born also out of frustration and restriction but this time the frustration came from the limitations of being perceived as one of the world's premier electronic ambient acts of the last decade. The Isness like its famous forefather or foremother(!) remains one of the most ambitious albums of the last three seconds at least in this universal cul de sac we call earth and likewise it too seemed destined to remain as a studio creation only.
