1.1 INTRODUCTION : ABOUT THIS DISCOGRAPHY

Welcome to the Apollo Discography! 

This listing has been through a lot of changes and because of this it has
become more than just a listing of releases on the Apollo label. Following 
suggestions from various netters, it now boasts some funky new sections that 
allow for even more information;

OTHER RELEASES
  This section covers releases not covered by the 'general release' section
  and is intended to cover promos, limited editions, R&S/Apollo 2x12"
  packs, and anything else that is unusual/collectable/downright sexy.

REVIEWS
  One criticism of discographies is that the listings hold no clues as to
  whether the releases are actually any good or not. The REVIEWS section 
  changes this by supplying small five-line (approx.) reviews which will 
  hopefully give an indication as to the quality of a release. This section 
  could conceivably grow to be bigger than the discography itself but what 
  the heck, eh? As it grows, it will probably be shunted to end of the 
  discography.

ARTIST LIST
  This contains some brief information (where known) about Apollo artists.
  As with the REVIEWS section it is hard to know where to draw the line
  between brief artists details and a full discography for each artist.
  As a rule, there will be a brief description and then a listing of Apollo
  releases for each artist. If you want to know of any more of their 
  material on other labels, I suggest you search for their discographys
  elsewhere. You could even compile your own :-)

Feedback on these changes would be greatly appreciated as while they're
fun to compile, I can see how they are not actually that useful. The 
reviews especially are likely to differ from person to person and so could
well be a complete waste of time, depending on your point of view.

Anyway, if you have any mini-reviews, more artist information or more
importantly, discography additions/modifications, please let me know
through one of the contax at the end of this file.

Right, the discography starts below. Have fun kids!

  Hugs n'kisses,

1.2 INTRODUCTION : A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO APOLLO

The Apollo label is the ambient division of R&S Records based in Belguim.
Whilst it has artists who only release on the Apollo label (e.g. Biosphere)
it also features releases from R&S artists issuing ambient LP/12"/EP's
(e.g. Robert Leiner, Ken Ishii, etc).

Because of this link to the techno material available on R&S, the general
style of Apollo releases tends to be ambient-techno. Many releases have
beats (usually with low BPMs) instead of tending to the beatless and more
minimal forms of ambient music.

Apollo 12" releases have a catalogue number in the form of APOLLO <number>.
Album catalogue numbers currently take the form AMB <number> LP/CD/MC/..
The <number> for albums is usually in the form 39xx (where xx is the issue
number) or for more recent issues, 49xx. Like R&S catalogue numbers, this
reflects the year (eg. AMB 39xx is for the year 1993, AMB 49xx for 1994,
etc).

4. DISCOGRAPHY

The discography will attempt to be in order of catalogue number. As a rule,
the catalogue numbers follow each other chronologically, although this
isn't always the case (eg. the Apollo Compilation). Each release will
contain the following information;

Cat. no : The catalogue number of the release.
Artist  : The name of the artist/act for this release. This could well be
          an alias for an artist who might release material under a 
          number of different names.
Release : The name of the album/12"/EP released.
Format  : The media that the release was issued on (usually vinyl, compact
          disc and occasionally cassette).
Tracks  : The list of tracks appearing on the release. Where available,
          track playing times and remix names are given.
Notes   : Any relevent information about the artist or release. In some
          cases this has been expanded on in the 'Artist list' section at
          the end of the discography.

         "Patashnik" was released on blue vinyl although I'm not sure
         whether this is a limited edition or just the standard vinyl
         release.

5. REVIEWS

This section contains some brief opinions about some Apollo releases and
will hopefully give you an idea about what to buy and what to avoid. Bear
in mind this is all in the reviewer's opinion only! Flow your reviews 
(maximum 6 lines only, please) to u9323899@sys.uea.ac.uk in the format/
style as shown below and if they're any good, in they go!
Stick your name/net alias after the review if you wish. Ideally your reviews 
will be on releases not already listed below, but if you violently disagree 
with any existing ones, send those too.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
APOLLO 8
Ken Ishii : Deep Sleep
  Many find Ishii's electronica awkward to listen to; this however is a 
  polished release. Strange electronic loops burble over lush chords and 
  make it a refreshingly different Apollo release. <CiM>

APOLLO 12
Biosphere : Seti Project
  More trademark metallic darkness from Geir Jensenn. Worth checking out
  for the superior remix of "The Fairy Tale". The title track, whilst hardly
  being ambient, is dark, fast and very tasty indeed. <CiM>

AMB 926
[Various] : Apollo Compilation
  An excellent compilation showcasing early Apollo material. Highlights
  are the analogue tweakery of Atlantis' "Paradise" and the lush dreaminess
  of the David Morley tracks. The Orb remix is a bit disappointing
  though, IMHO of course. <CiM>

AMB 3921
Biosphere : Microgravity
  Although not as polished as Patashnik, Microgravity still maintains
  Jensenns unsettling ambient-techno. "Baby Interphase" is a clattering 
  trance number where as "Biosphere" is just downright scary. <CiM>

AMB 3922
Aphex Twin : Selected Ambient Works 85-92
  Although vastly dissimilar to Selected Ambient Works Vol.2, this album
  is also totally brilliant. Richard James covers all areas here with 
  beatless ambience ("i"), airy techno ("Pulsewidth") and even ventures 
  into the world of dub ("We Are The Music Makers"). There are a few
  filler tracks here but most of it is James at his best and most
  accessible. <CiM>

AMB 3929
Locust : Weathered Well
  Scary, deep ambience from Locust; it's accomplished but unsettling stuff. 
  Aphex comparisons abound with drifting synth sounds and some nasty
  metallic beats but it has a menacing atmosphere to it. Impressive but
  don't buy this if you like your ambience cheerful. <CiM>

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
6. ARTIST LIST

This contains some brief information (where known) about some Apollo
artists.

APHEX TWIN
The Aphex Twin is Richard D. James from Cornwall, England. Richard has 
recorded under many aliases (AFX, Polygon Window, The Caustic Window, etc)
but the Aphex Twin is his most familiar pseudonym. "Selected Ambient Works
85-92" was released following a number of R&S releases ("Analogue
Bubblebath Vol.1" and "Xylem Tube EP"). The Aphex Twin has now signed to
Warp Records but still releases material on his own RePhleX label.
  Apollo releases:
  - AMB 3922  : Selected Ambient Works 85-92 [LP]

BIOSPHERE
Biosphere is Geir Jenssen from Tromsoe, Norway. Before his Biosphere 
project, he was a member of Norwegian band Bel Canto. After he left Bel 
Canto in 1990, he released some 12"s and an album (which has recently been
re-released) under the alias of Bleep.
  Apollo releases:

CABARET VOLTAIRE
Cabaret Voltaire are Richard H. Kirk and Stephen Mallinder, although most
of the input for "The Conversation" LP was provided by Richard. Cabaret
Voltaire have an extensive background as part of the early
industrial/electronic scene but "The Conversation" signals a different
direction; similar to the material that Richard H. Kirk is releasing
as solo projects. Richard has released his "Virtual States" album on Warp
recently as well as recording under the alias of Sandoz.
  Apollo releases:
  - AMB 4934  : The Conversation [LP]

THE FIRES OF ORK
The Fires Of Ork are Geir Jenssen (Biosphere) and Pete Namlook, owner of

on Fax records as well as on Apollo.

THE IRRESISTABLE FORCE

has released material both on Rising High and with Pete Namlook on
Fax +49-69/450464 under the collaboration name of "Dreamfish". The Apollo
album was also released on Rising High, under the title of "Flying High".
  Apollo releases:
  - AMB 3924  : The Irresistable Force [LP]

ISHII, KEN
Ken Ishii is from Tokyo and has released most of his unconventional
electronic music on R&S. "Deep Sleep" is (currently) his only release for
Apollo but he has a retrospective LP on R&S ("Innerelements") which
features selected tracks from his many releases on R&S and also Apollo.
His R&S releases include the acclaimed 2x12" pack "Garden Of The Palm", 
"Pneuma" and also his new "Tangled Notes" 12".
  Apollo releases:
  - APOLLO 8  : Deep Sleep [12"]

Europe. Jam El Mar also works with DJ Dag under the name Dance 2 Trance,
who also enjoyed chart success with "Power Of American Natives" and 
"Take A Freefall".
  Apollo releases:
  - AMB 3930  : Tripomatic Fairy Tales 2002 [LP]

LEINER, ROBERT
Robert Leiner is an engineer in the R&S studios in Belgium. As well as
releasing material under his own name for Apollo, he is probably better

  Apollo releases:
  - APOLLO 9  : Dream Or Reality [12"]
  - AMB 3925  : Visions Of The Past [LP]

he is probably better known for his engineering and remix work with ambient 
guitar group Seefeel. Both "Lust" and "Tamed" from "Weathered Well" were 
also released on the "Skysplit" EP (RS93031) on R&S. He has recently been
working with other collaboraters under the name Autocreation on the Orb's
