about

With The Bug's long awaited follow up to London Zoo, Angels & Devils finally out and currently cleaning up in the glowing reviews department it's time to let loose with a fun fact. The Angels & Devils album files contained no less than 160 demos and versions. Parring that back into a concise 12 track album was no easy task. Some say the art of album sequencing is dead in this age of digital, random shuffle, single based mentality but we still stand by the experience of a properly laid out album. Particularly one that follows the conceptual lines laid out on Angels & Devils. The upside to this process is the absolutely insane amount of quality material still in those files.

With that we give you The Bug Exit. Serving both as a fat cut post album single for Angels & Devils and a way to make sure more of the excellent material sees the light of day.

First up is the Angels & Devils opener "Void" and "Void Version", featuring Liz Harris (of Grouper). The original of the mutant floating pop track that opens the album, followed by and even deeper/headier (as if that were even possible) spaced out and dubbed out version.

On the flip side is "Black Wasp" and "Black Wasp Version". From the same Liz Harris sessions, and yet another deep deep excursion into heavyweight lushness. Following the same duality split concept of the album, the 2nd disc is all devils. Album track "Function" is given a full side to let the bass heaviness breath. And finally, long time Bug collaborator and sound-system/ragga legend Daddy Freddy comes in menacing and hard on "Blaow" to wrap it up.
