one of my favourite albums ever


























I'd just like to celebrate this wonderful and timeless album with you. I won't tell you what I love so much about this album, because pretty soon you'll feel it anyway.
Fila Brazillia have always been heroes to me and Maim That Tune is my fave among their many (and still not enough) albums (all amazing). This particular album is 18 years old now and I can't believe how time flies. Nevertheless I still enjoy this like day one. Back in the days people called this downtempo, triphop or chillout, but none of these pigeonholes seems to work for Fila.
Been listening to this record a lot when traveling and the sounds have been weaved into so many neural networks.... Played out a CD and had to buy another one, taped it to cassette, mini disc, converted it to mp3 for traveling AND had many dreams of seeing this on vinyl one day. Btw - why doesn't some friendly guy out there make my dream come true? I'm sure a LOT of people would be happy about it... how about a gatefold double abum ; ) Another dream of mine is a Fila Brazillia ambient album, but I better stop pestering you with my dreams. God bless Fila Brazillia!

I can't agree more. This is an amazing album top to bottom.

18 years! wow. yip Basso this is a superb album, and as you say one amongst many superb albums, but perhaps the best. i love how they developed their sound over the years, always remaining somehow not far from where they set off and yet sounding completely different to a pack of slo mo music producers... great spotting!

Hi Basso,

Thanks for the blog - I visit from time to time and usually find something of interest. Great to see your love for Fila Brazillia -a band that should have been more widely appreciated. 'Power Clown' is probably my favourite album. Interested to see your comment about wishing that they had recorded an ambient album - are you familiar with their 'V&A' album that was recorded live at the V&A Museum using samples and CDs? That came as close to 'ambient' as anything that they did. It only had a limited release at the time, so perhaps didn't get on your radar.

All of the Pork Label is fantastic! Horrible name for a label. Great music.
