Loop: Preying Mantras
Simon Reynolds, Melody Maker, 12 November 1988
Loop's free-falling acid rock is now a luring black hole, sucking in a host of trance disciples. Their new single, 'Black Sun', and forthcoming tour look certain to send their cosmic cyclone spinning further off its axis. Simon Reynolds immerses himself in the band's schizoid repetition and has his mind disintegrated by the spiralling explosion.
