GORE – Peel session 29/11/1988

December 24, 2010

 GORE were a Dutch instrumental 3 piece formed in 1985 who released three albums before disbanding in the late 80’s. I’m sure many people have been duped (myself included) by their 90s output which was a totally different lineup, the bass player being the only original member. I don’t really know what to say about the 90’s stuff other than that nothing touches the 80’s output. They released a split live LP with Rollins Band in 1987 when the two bands toured throughout Europe together. This union led to Rollins using Theo Van Rock to do his live sound and he basically became a fifth band member. That record features the track ‘Arena’ which wasn’t on any album, neither was that live side on the Southern Lord reissue. I guess the Peel sessions couldn’t be licensed either which is a shame. There were three of them broadcast during 87,88 & 91. The material here is compromised of four tracks from ‘Mean Man’s Dream’, strange that they didn’t try anything from ‘Wrede’ at this point. Another little piece of interest is the band Bohren und der club of Gore added the ‘of Gore’ in tribute to these Dutch masters. The first two albums do their best to meld Black Sabbath, Black Flag & Big Black. Worship this band.
