B IS FOR THE BLACK DOG (1)

A track from The Black Dog, one of the originators of the UK IDM scene. Along with Beaumont Hannat, they originally recorded for Sheffield-based GPR before moving to Warp and then Soma. Since they started in 1989 and have a prolific catalogue, there might be quite a few entries.

 

The Black Dog was formerly the trio of Ken Downie, Ed Handley, and Andy Turner, also known at the time as Black Dog Productions. Ed and Andy left to pursue their Plaid project, Ken continued with several different line ups of Black Dog before choosing to work with Martin and Richard Dust from Dust Science Recordings after a long break from the music scene.

 

From their 1993 “Cost II” 12″:
