I love youtube.

No wonder Christian Savill was perfect for joining Slowdive: Sleep is an amazing bliss-out song he wrote for his former band Eternal, - featured on a 7'' called Breathe, released by Sarah records (cat. n°31) in 1990.

"The 7" was released on Sarah records in 1990, approximately 2000 copies were pressed. On it were three tracks recorded in February 1990, entitled "breathe", "sleep", and "take me down". Being admittedly inept at recording and low on money, they had to record the single and mix it in about 5 hours. The original demos for those tracks were recorded in December 1989 at White House Studio, Weston-Super-Mare. Oddly enough, the original unreleased demos actually sound like better mixes than the released versions, but again this is most likely due to the hurried nature of the seven inch's recording session. In addition, the cover got screwed up in the printing process and wasn't supposed to look like the messy red and yellow collage that it turned out to be. Two songs from the 7" ("sleep" and "breathe") were also released in CD format on a Sarah records compilation album called Glass Arcade." [source: uploader's notes]

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
