4 A Moment Of Silence

November 27th, 2008 | music

Again, a cheating static-image video, but I don’t care, because I’ve been looking for a copy of Boom Boom Satellites’ 11-year-old "4 A Moment Of Silence" for ages. It’s off what I think was their first record, 7 IGNITIONS, which, perversely, remains my favourite.

The bass is a bit dropped-out on this, but it’s not a bad copy.

  1. i’m assuming you mean you’re looking for a physical copy, since torrents are pretty easy to find? at any rate, thanks for the tip, i thought their debut was “out loud” which i discovered when KEXP played “on the painted desert” on the radio one morning and i almost drove my car into a ditch listening to it because it was just that pretty.

  2. You are correct, “4 A Moment of Silence” is off the “7 Ignitions” double CD.(R&S Records, RS-98137 CD).

    For whatever reason, I picked this up, it wasn’t what I was listening to at the time, I put it on my shelf, and then 4 years ago pulled it back out and thought it sounded fantastic. The curse of being ahead of one’s time. This was a great little capsule of a good, experimental time (1997) in drum and bass/techno, when it was trying to grow up and figure out what it wanted to do next.

  3. By the way, if you want my copy, email me. I’ve burned my copies, so you’re welcome to the physical CD.

  4. Moment of Silence is really good BBS material I like “on the painted desert” more and really love the “out loud” CD. 6 years ago i paid an amazon marketplace guy 5 euro for the vinyl and CD doublepack, both never came, i was very gullible. To bad that the BBS guys last records are at least danceable but never reached the genius of “out loud” or 7 ignitions, although i have the feeling they never even tried.
