The limited edition remix of Swallow’s debut album Blow. It was released in 1992 the same year as the debut. It is not just a companion to the album, it overshadows it. Blowback demonstrates that once the movement away from the John Fryer production took place, a substantial piece of work was created. Fryer is credited as the original producer, but that was before the remixing.
While the track list is essentially the same as Blow, the end product is completely different. There are songs that are just instrumental and other that are transformed. The effects of the album are essentially the same dreamy and ethereal.
It boasts a dub version of Peekaboo. I never noticed that it was a dub version until I read the CD cover. It is a 4AD version of dub, which sounds like a normal 4AD song with extra echo. Fuzzy guitar instrumental of Tastes of Honey is far superior than the original.
