Lowlife | Eternity Road (Reflections Of Lowlife 85-95)

First release in LTM's CD reissue programme by cult Scottish dream-pop band Lowlife, who released a string of acclaimed albums between 1985 and 1995. Lowlife were formed in Grangemouth 1985 when original Cocteau Twins bassist Will Heggie joined former Dead Neighbours members Craig Lorentsen, Grant McDowell and Stuart Everest. Their atmospheric, moody soundscapes were often compared to Joy Division, New Order, Comsat Angels and - yes - The Cocteau Twins, yet the band received widespread acclaim over the course of six albums released through indie label Nightshift: Rain (1985), Permanent Sleep (1986), Diminuendo (1987), Godhead (1989), The Black Sessions (1988), San Antorium (1991) and Gush (1995).
Eternity Road compiles stand-out tracks from all the albums (selected by the band), as well as non-album singles including Hollow Gut and Eternity Road. Several tracks are exclusive to this compilation, including a rare covermount version of Ramafied. The CD has been digitally re-mastered from the original master tapes, and features 74 minutes of music. The 12-pages booklet features liner notes by journalist and former manager Brian Guthrie, as well as photos and ephemera.
