Initially compared with Cocteau Twins and My Bloody Valentine ,   the band remixed the Blow album to break down the John Fryer production, creating the limited edition follow-up release Blowback.
In the middle of recording their second full-length album, Rough Trade lost their funding, and Swallow's recording efforts were in tatters. Louise Trehy left the music industry altogether, but Mike Mason continues with musical endeavours. 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.

Mike Mason continues with music and Louise Trehy left the music industry. Swallow: Blow. I think part of the appeal was Louise Trehy, she definitely had a look that was magnetising to 16 year old shoegazers. Strangely enough the album cover has a picture of a liver on it.
It was released in 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.Fuzzy guitar instrumental of Tastes of Honey is far superior than the original.
