Fans of British guitar music were wondering what was coming next. Shoegazing had run out of steam and nothing had sprung up in its place. The scene was dominated by imported grunge music from America with Nirvana and Pearl Jam leading the way. The four biggest British bands of the mid-nineties - Radiohead, Oasis, Blur and the Verve - had yet to release their iconic albums which would shape the course of the UK scene for the rest of the decade.
Levitation had been recording their second album in early 1993, and were set to release this ambitious and innovative work when the band split and the album was shelved indefinitely. Had this album been released as planned, it would have had a major impact on UK guitar music, standing shoulder to shoulder with the breakthrough albums by the bands mentioned above and pre-dating them by at least a year. Unfortunately, no one apart from a few dedicated fans trading low quality bootlegs online were able even to hear it, and the moment was lost.
Flashback Records release Meanwhile Gardens for the first time in the original planned format. The album has been painstakingly remastered at high resolution and sounds as fresh and new now as it did on the original tapes.
