Braille sticker direct under "Bola" on the front sleeve reads "BOLA SOUP". Known versions: Original issue, released in a plastic zip-lock bag, containing a gatefold card sleeve (this release). Repress, released in a jewel case. I remember the first time I heard this album. Back in 1999 I was recommended this album by a friend, who lent me his copy so I could hear it. It sat for almost a week next to my bed, and was always on my "to play" list but I never got round to it. Anyway, one morning I woke up in the early hours and decided to give it a listen.
The debut album as Bola, Soup, came in 1998 and was described as "an impressive synthesis of the machine-beat ambiance (sic) of post-techno with warm, wistful analog soul". A rare set of 3 EPs called Shapes was released in 2000, pressed at only 300 copies; in September 2006, it was remastered and reissued in greater numbers by Skam, adding three The latest Bola album, . Bola – Shapes, 2006 (Skam). Remastered and re-issued version of the Shapes EP, plus 3 bonus tracks.
After a three-year gestation, Darrell Fitton's debut Bola LP turned out to be a varied, engaging listen. The tracks mostly follow in the style of heavily mechanistic, wistfully melodic post-techno first explored by Warp label artists like the Black Dog, Autechre, and Aphex Twin, but just as evident are the influences of artists such as Tangerine Dream, Skinny Puppy, and Vangelis (the 14-minute closing cut, "Whoblo," sounds like the soundtrack to a pornographic Blade Runner)
