To this day, I think that Gus Gus’ “Polydistortion” is in the category of the top 20 4AD releases of all time for me, which is no easy feat. And looking back on it, their live performances of the mid ’90s were probably only rivaled by The Orb. This recording found it’s way in my collection thanks to a trade in the late-90’s but with little information except a label that said “London 97-99.” It’s a great recording including this 12+ minute version of Believe.

  1. Thank you for sharing this. ‘Polydistortion’ – and to a lesser extent ‘This Is Normal’ – were/are so special to me and it’s always amazing to come across something I don’t have. You wouldn’t happen to have more to share fro this, would you?
