Whorl - Both Slumberland 7" singles




Whorl weren't exactly prolific. They have at least 3 compilation tracks in addition to the four songs spread across their two Slumberland singles from 1990 and 1992. "Mind Revolution" is pretty darn Godfleshy for Slumberland. "Stupid Shit" seems like a post-Godfleshy band aping The Fall. Both songs are quite good. And then, a mere two years later, Whorl sounds a bit Chapterhousey on "Christmas" and then beats The Fall at their own game with the repetitious and absolutely sublime "Maybe It's Better". An intriguing mystery band.

I was surprised that, 17 or so years later, that the "Stupid Shit" single holds up remarkably well. So glad I own it!

Thank you so much for putting this up. I was just looking on Slumberland's site for Whorl mp3's. All they had was Maybe It's Better so once again thank you.
