PlaidEd Handley and Andy Turner's time in The Black Dog, one of the leading lights of what critics liked to call intelligent techno, served them well when it came to Plaid, an often beguiling techno outfit on Warp, as synonymous with the legendary Sheffield label as the similar, and equally essential Boards Of Canada and Aphex Twin. Their debut, 1998's 'Not For Threes' (issued through Nothing in America), featuring guest vocals from no less than Bjork, was a master class in contrast and atmosphere. 2003's 'Spokes' continued their unique way, making laptops sigh and dance fans swoon.
