Amazing and important tracks

Slowdive - FACT MIX 430

Can't wait to finally see Slowdive performing live in Padova (Italy) next July. 
Below, as tweeted by Slowdive's (formerly Eternal / then Monster Movie) guitarist Christian Savill, they're sharing today a special selection of those 'seminal' bands which had their weight on making Slowdive's peculiar sound, a 22 tracks gourmant delicacy. Formerly they released also a Slowdaze mixtape, but this mix for Fact magazine focuses principally on their musical education, somehow. I think that the missing track here is a whatever song by Velvet Underground & Nico.
Remembering the The Pumpkin Fairies..


"Slowdive’s FACT mix, we’re told, “followed a discussion we all had at a rehearsal in February about what artists and tracks have influenced us as a band and also what tracks would sound great included in a new Slowdive mix.”

“Maybe some of the more well known choices, such as The Smiths, Sonic Youth, The Byrds and Brian Eno for example, are pretty obvious to listeners but they are also great songs by some of our favourite artists that had a profound influence on us all as aspiring musicians. We still think all these songs sound amazing and important to Slowdive as a band.”

“The Cure, Can, The Stooges, This Mortal Coil (and The Cocteau Twins) and My Bloody Valentine we all grew up respecting and still admire. It’s hard to ignore how some of these bands have helped shape our sound. Spiritualzed (and Spacemen 3), Swans, Dinosaur Jnr and Bark Pychosis we also have been fascinated with since they began sonically expanding our minds when we were still teenagers. Syd Barrett, Nick Drake and Bert Jansch, who are all sadly no longer with us, offer an acoustic tinge to the mix. The simple melodies, majestic melancholy and emotional aspects of these songs we never tire of.
