Lost material from British production duo Blue has been released on Belgian imprint Souvenirs From Imaginary Cities.
'The Path Of Least Resistance Meets The Point Of No Return' is a collection of coherent tracks, that have been developed from original DAT-tapes recorded between 1997 and 2001.
A press release reads: "Recorded as building blocks of an ambient album that was never wrapped up at the time, today Blue members Chris Mann and Paul Darking stepped back into the studio to complete a story that has been lef untold for so many years. Using, in some occasions, various mixes of the same track laid out over each other to come to its conclusive version, the final result is breathtaking and surprisingly coherent."
The duo, made up of Chris Mann and Paul Darking, released their debut EP on Andrew Weatherall’s Sabres of Paradise imprint before following it up with another EP a year later. Two albums followed on Weatherall's other imprint Emissions Audio Output and several EPs on its sub-labels. Following this two more albums came via Iris Light Records but the millennium saw the pair's creative output come to a close, until the release of this material.
