Lycia

Mike Van Portfleet formed Lycia in early 1988 in his hometown of Phoenix. Inspired by post-punk and the ethereal 4AD sound of the '80s, he began experimenting with guitar loops on his four-track recorder. He recruited an old friend, bassist John Fair, to join him, and the two recorded Wake in 1989 for Phoenix's Orphanage Records. Fair left a year later to play with Caterwaul, but Van Portfleet continued to record, sending his demos to the goth-ambient Projekt label. Projekt liked what it heard and signed him to a contract.

The first Lycia release for Projekt, Ionia, appeared in 1991. After recording A Day in the Stark Corner in 1993, Lycia became a duo once again when David Galas appeared on several live dates in California, documented on 1994's Live. Van Portfleet and Galas first recorded in the studio as Bleak, a side-project which released Vane in 1995. Tara Van Flower became the third member of Lycia that year, and her vocals appeared on The Burning Circle and Then Dust, a double-album released in 1995. Estrella followed in 1998. ~ John Bush

Hate categories, but I can see how Lycia was labled goth at the time, especially under the Projeckt banner...but still made good music nonetheless.

Long live goth long live the beautiful dark wave,thank you Lycia,a trillion starlit thank you's for the song Estrella!

Actually one band you could have there is Fields Of The Nephilim.

Pandora has made a big mistake. Apart from Hammock, which I suppose resembles some Lycia, those so-called Similar Artists are the New Age relaxation kind of ambient as well as chillout. Lycia is ethereal wave, darkwave and goth rock with some dark ambient in places. Very different. This is dark goth territory here.

... it's called Quiet Moments. Will pre-order as soon as it's possible to do so!

This band created some of the best emotionally dark and dreamy music I've ever heard. I'm glad Cold is up here. If you're new to them, starting there isn't a bad idea.

The original 2-cd "Burning Circle and then Dust" seems to be out of print. So, i wonder if Pandora cannot get it. Anyway, I have all the CD's, which I ripped to my mp3 player. Pandora is only good for mainstream music. You have to buy the fringe stuff like Woob, before it goes out of print.
