Slowdive EP (rsd 20)
music on vinyl
slowdive were formed by Neil Halstead and Rachel Goswell in October 1989.
A self-titled EP was released in November 1990 and received praise from music critics. Slowdive was actually their original demo; the band had preferred the older recordings after feeling disillusioned with their studio craft. NME staff member Simon Williams wrote “Slowdive have banished the barrier restricting creativity... When they really relax, Slowdive can make Cocteau Twins sound like Mudhoney”. Melody Maker awarded the EP its “Single of the Week” award. This year we celebrate the 30th anniversary of Slowdive. A limited 30th anniversary edition is available on Record Store Day. Only 4000 individually numbered copies on green & black marbled (transparent green, clear & black mixed) vinyl are pressed.
