By 1993, shoegazers Chapterhouse had embraced the remix culture and allowed two of the cream of the UK leftfield dance scene – Spooky and Drum Club – remix their singles. But then they were gone.


Chapterhouse were formed in Reading in 1987. They took the unusual step of rehearsing and gigging for well over a year before recording even a demotape. Initially lumped in with the British acid rock scene of the time, a mistake hardly rectified by the band’s early performances supporting the rather laidback Spacemen 3. Chapterhouse eventually escaped from one genre only to find themselves thrust amongst the infamous “shoegazer” groups of 1991 (with Lush, Moose and Slowdive), so called because of the bands’ static live shows and insular music. By the end of 1993, they were no more.
To end these posts on Chapterhouse, here are some remixes from a couple of their 1993 singles:


Chapterhouse – We Are The Beautiful (Spooky’s Extravaganja Dub Mix)
Chapterhouse – Don’t Look Now (Sitar Trance Mix) By Drum Club
Chapterhouse – Don’t Look Now (Club Bliss Mix) by Drum Club
