Loop was formed in Croydon, London, 1986 by Robert Hampson (vocals/guitars) and partner Beki Stewart (Bex) on drums. Following line-up changes - the arrival of new drummer John Wills, new bassist Neil MacKay and James Endeacott on second guitar the band took a primal rhythmic foundation, captured on their impressive debut full-length Heavens End (1987). Hypnotising all, with their discordant trance-like spell serving as an antidote to the prevailing trend in British pop at the time, they resurrected the concept of loud out there-rock for a new era, creating droning soundscapes of bleak beauty and harsh dissonance.
