Eliza Carthy – Dreams Of Breathing Underwater (2008)

Eliza Carthy – Dreams Of Breathing Underwater (2008)

Pioneer of new folk and inheritor of the great Carthy folk heritage!

This is another fine LP from Eliza.

It’s hard to believe now, with the sheer volume of new acoustic heroes banging on about the virtues of folk, that there was a time when the whole genre was viewed as a musty old bag of bearded fustiness. One of the main reasons it’s managed to shed such negative connotations is the hard work and constant invention of Eliza Carthy. There may be a plethora of folk evangelists now, but a few short years back, it felt like Eliza was about all we had to push things forward and out into the mainstream.

And push she has. Amongst her back catalogue, there’s the double album Red Rice, where drum and bass meets folk fiddle, and Rough Music: a very modern exploration of the traditional country music of England. She is, it has to be said, never predictable.

Even so, that Dreams Of Breathing Underwater opens with a blues guitar, rather than her brilliant violin, comes as something of a shock, and it’s not the only one to be found on the album, her seventh solo collection.

Dreams of Breathing Underwater is penned almost entirely by Eliza and writing partner Ben Ivitsky. Only the downbeat ghostliness of Hug You Like A Mountain comes from another hand: Rory MacLeod. It’s an album which, even by Carthy’s own standards, is pretty random, in the best way possible.

From the ethereal wonder of Lavenders, through the swelling, swaying meander of Rosalie, the squeeze-box comedic heartbreak of Little Bigman and the thrilling finale of Oranges And Seasalt, which is easily the best and most honest drinking song written for many a year, the majority of the experimentation works. Though the aforementioned opening blues number Follow The Dollar, feels increasingly dull as the rest of the album unfolds behind it.

The fact that it works is partly due to the musicianship on offer – there are turns for rambunctious folk duo, Spiers and Boden, Edinburgh rock ‘n’ rollers, Mystery Juice, and Scottish songstress, Eddi Reader, amongst others – and is partly down to the thoughtful songwriting, which never overfills the songs, allowing them to breathe and flourish. It can also be put down to Eliza’s magnificent voice, the depth and richness of which can now comfortably sit next to her mother, Norma Waterson’s, as one of the finest you will ever hear.

Dreams Of Breathing Underwater is a brilliant album that deserves applause as much for its occasional failures as it does for its multiple successes, as indeed does Eliza Carthy herself. Never one to rest on her laurels, this album shows just why she is one of music’s, and not just folk’s, most important and innovative artists.

Screaming Trees – Discography

Some fine music from Mark Lanegan and pals – Seattle’s Screaming Trees!

Wrongly lumped with the “grunge” label, this group were far better than the vast majority of those rubbish “grunge” outfits! Of course too, they were around long before that dumb “grunge” label was coined!

Lanegan of course has gone on to a a very eclectic and impressive solo career.

The boys split at the dawn of the nineties but they regrouped in 1998 to record an album but the work was never completed or released. The demos are here.

1985 – Other Worlds (Ep)
1986 – Clairvoyance
1987 – Even If and Especially When
1988 – Beat Happening-Screaming Trees (Ep)
1988 – Invisible Lantern
1989 – Buzz Factory
1990 – Change Has Come (Ep)
1990 – Something About Today (Ep)

The Smiths – Troy Tate Sessions (1983)

The Smiths Troy Tate Sessions (1983)

The legendary original unreleased recording of tracks for the seminal 1984 debut album from the mighty Smiths!!

These are the original studio recordings from the summer of 1983 for The Smiths” debut LP with producer Troy Tate and are usually referred to as the Troy Tate outtakes or sessions, or incorrectly as the Troy Tate demos.

Unsatisfied with his work as a producer, the Smiths re-recorded their debut with producer John Porter and this is what ended up being released.

Unfinished versions (at varying degree) of the shelved Tate recordings are in circulation on various bootlegs.

There are three Troy Tate Sessions “sets;

  • TATE 1 (core tracks),
  • TATE 2 (alternative mixes)
  • a third set that contains 2 demos: Jeane and What Difference does it make?

https://i2.wp.com/lorimoz.googlepages.com/Smiths.JPG/Smiths-large.jpg

There are two circulated Troy Tate versions of most songs he worked on, but for a few titles there are either only one or three versions out there. The first versions to have leaked (let’s call the set TATE1) feature seemingly rougher outtakes while the versions in a later set (TATE2) seem to be more polished, possibly considered finished, and include or exclude different vocals/sounds/elements. The Troy Tate recordings of “Jeane” and “Pretty Girls Make Graves” were considered good enough to see an official release so the versions of those two titles on most bootlegs are the studio ones, lifted from vinyl. For more information of the availability of the official sources for the latter two songs, click on the titles above in bold.

TATE 1 set

The first Troy Tate sessions bootlegs appeared on the market in the early 1990s. They featured what appears to be unfinished mixes. The pitch (speed) on these is often slower than it should be. Some bootleg feature speed-corrected versions. Timings given here for each title are respectively those of the uncorrected speeds followed by the corrected ones.

– Reel Around The Fountain (version 1; 6:13/6:02)
– You’ve Got Everything Now (version 1; 4:28/4:15)
– Miserable Lie (version 1; 4:52/4:39)
– These Things Take Time (only version; 2:48/2:40)
– Wonderful Woman (version 1; 3:29/3:19)
– Handsome Devil (version 1; 3:00/2:50)
– Hand In Glove (version 1; 3:30/3:20)
– What Difference Does It Make? (version 1; 4:13/4:01)
– I Don’t Owe You Anything (version 1; 4:37/4:24)
– Suffer Little Children (version 1; 5:54/5:39)
– Pretty Girls Make Graves (officially released version 3:35)
– Jeane (officially released version 3:03)

TATE 2 set (first half)

In the mid-1990s the following Troy Tate outtakes were released on the “Reel Around The Fountain” and “Wonderful Woman” manufactured bootlegs. They have since been lifted and included on other fan-made compilations. They are sometimes referred to as alternate or alternative versions. Please note that two titles were not included in the first set. The other four are significantly different to their counterparts in the first set.

– Accept Yourself (only version 4:03)
– The Hand That Rocks The Cradle (only version 5:15)
– Miserable Lie (version 2; 4:37)
– Reel Around The Fountain (version 2; 5:55)
– What Difference Does It Make? (version 2; 3:19)
– Wonderful Woman (version 2; 3:18)

TATE 2 set (rest)

The complete set from which the above six were lifted has since leaked onto the internet, and is gradually finding its way onto fanmade bootlegs. Again they are sometimes referred to as alternate or alternative versions. A set circulated on the internet and labeled as ‘remixed’ is actually this one, with an inferior sound. So besides the above 6, this set also includes the following songs/versions, different to any one above (except for the two officially released ones of course).

– You’ve Got Everything Now (version 2; 4:29)
– Handsome Devil (version 2; 2:52)
– Hand In Glove (version 2; 3:24)
– I Don’t Owe You Anything (version 2; 4:30)
– Suffer Little Children (version 2; 4:54)
– Pretty Girls Make Graves (officially released version 3:35)
– Jeane (officially released version 3:03)

TATE3 set

A different set leaked on the internet was labeled “Rough Trade Demos”. This actually includes inferior sounding versions of many songs in the TATE2 set above, but the two songs listed below are different. They sound like pre-mixed versions of the ones above. Whether or not Troy Tate had anything to do with these is unknown as this point, but because they are circulated among Troy Tate sessions, they are mentioned here.

– What Difference Does It Make? (version 3 aka demo; 3:56)
– Jeane (demo 2:46)

In short, the completist will have more luck finding the best versions of all the above on the internet. Manufactured bootleg cds either have slow versions of the TATE1 set, or 2nd or 3rd generation fan-‘remastered’ versions of all sets. At this point in time great lossless versions of all the above is available on torrent sites. Still, in case one wants to know what is found on various titles, here is a rundown.

https://i2.wp.com/lorimoz.googlepages.com/bootlegs.JPG/bootlegs-large.jpg

Differences between versions

Differences between the various circulated Troy Tate outtakes of each title are given below. These descriptions are not exhaustive, only the most obvious differences are mentioned.

“Accept Yourself”

Only version, TATE2 set – 4:03

This song was not part of the TATE1 set, or if it was, it was never released with the rest.

Ironically Simon Goddard in the fantastic “Songs To Save Your Life” mentions that the band recorded two different versions of this song with Troy Tate, but the other one is still uncirculated at this point in time.

“Hand In Glove”

Version in TATE1 set – 3:20 corrected / 3:30 uncorrected
Version in TATE2 set – 3:24

This one is quite easy. At 1:36 in the TATE1 version, there is an echoey background vocal of “kiss my shades…” absent in the other version. Also there’s something that sounds like flute in the outro of the TATE1 mix, but not in the TATE2 mix. There are many other minor differences, but these are the most obvious ones.

“Handsome Devil”

Version in TATE1 set – 2:50 corrected / 3:00 uncorrected
Version in TATE2 set – 2:52

The two mixes sound quite different. A very obvious difference is found at 1:45 when in the TATE1 version Morrissey stretches the ‘you’ in “yooooooou deserve it”, while in the TATE2 mix he sings “you deserve it, deserve it, deserve it”. At the very end of the song, after singing “Oh you handsome devil!”, he shouts “aah!” in the TATE1 mix, and “ow!” in the TATE2 mix.

“The Hand That Rocks The Cradle”

Only version, TATE2 set – 5:15

This song was not part of the TATE1 set, or if it was, it was never released with the rest.

“I Don’t Owe You Anything”

Version in TATE1 set – 4:24 corrected / 4:37 uncorrected
Version in TATE2 set – 4:30

These two versions are very similar. Not much work was done on the song between one and the other. The TATE1 mix has a one note bass intro before the drum kicks in, while the TATE2 mix, which is also sounds slower or smoother, has a 2-note bass intro. At 3:05 the finger clicking is more prominent in the TATE1 version. At 3:50 when Morrissey sings “life is never kind”, the inflexion is more on ‘never’ in the TATE1 version, and more on ‘kind’ in the TATE2 mix.

“Jeane”

Single version – 3:03
Demo – 2:46

All the Troy Tate outtakes bootlegs seem to feature the officially released version of this song, lifted from the “This Charming Man” 7″ single. However an obvious demo was found in a ‘Rough Trade Demos’ package circulated on the internet which mainly featured inferior sounding versions of the TATE2 set except for this song and “What Difference Does It Make”. This “Jeane” demo is shorter, rougher and lacks backing vocals. Its outro doesn’t have the accelerating drum and “ooh!” ending.

“Miserable Lie”

Version in TATE1 set – 4:39 corrected / 4:52 uncorrected
Version in TATE2 set – 4:37

The TATE2 mix usually starts with a drumstick click. At the end of the TATE1 version the echo fades out properly, while at the end of the TATE2 version, it is abruptly faded out, on whatever source in circulation.

“Pretty Girls Make Graves”

Studio version – 3:35

Because the Troy Tate produced version of this song had already been officially released by the band at the time of the initial release of the Troy Tate sessions on bootlegs, it seems like the makers decided to include it with the rest. The presence of the song at the very end of the track listings of the earliest bootlegs adds more weight to this theory, but doesn’t necessarily confirm it. Until someone finds any difference between the official and bootleg versions, this theory can be safely considered.

“Reel Around The Fountain”

Version in TATE1 set – 6:02 corrected / 6:13 uncorrected
Version in TATE2 set – 5:55

The TATE1 version starts with three notes not on the other one. The note is heard again at the very end after Morrissey’s voice fades out. There is no ‘oh’ before ‘people said’ in the TATE1 version, while in the other one Morrissey sings ‘*oh* people said’.

“Suffer Little Children”

Version in TATE1 set – 5:39 corrected / 5:54 uncorrected
Version in TATE2 set – 4:54

This one is rather obvious. At the end of the TATE2 mix, the outro guitar is accompanied by cymbal, but at the end of the TATE1 version, there is no cymbal. Instead the song segues into the piano part that was later used by the band in “Asleep”. The woman giggling or crying at the 4:00 mark is present in the TATE1 mix, and absent in the other one. Also, the “you might sleep but you will never dream” line differs.

Another slight but noticeable difference is the presence of an echoey ‘tock’ sound at the very beginning of the TATE2 mix. The same sound can be heard at the very beginning of the TATE2 mix of “Wonderful Woman”, but in a lower pitch.

“These Things Take Time”

Only version, TATE1 set – 2:40 corrected / 2:48 uncorrected

There is only one Troy Tate version of this song in circulation.

“What Difference Does It Make?”

Version in TATE1 set – 4:01 corrected / 4:13 uncorrected
Version in TATE2 set – 3:19
Demo – 3:56

This one is rather obvious. A look at the song lengths alone is enough to tell the versions apart. However it is worth mentioning the “oh!” before the drum kick in the intro of the TATE2 mix, and the piano that comes in right after that. Also what sounds like a violin is heard in the background soon after, while it only comes in at about 0:38 in the TATE1 mix.

At 1:36 when Morrissey sings “it makes none”, the violin (or something that sounds like that) is heard in the background of the TATE1 mix, while in the TATE2 mix, there is guitar picking and an added “aaahh” back vocal. At 1:46 there is slide after “tonight” in the TATE1 version, and dreamy echo on the background vox, but in the TATE2 version there is no slide and much less echo.

The ‘Rough Trade Demos’ version is unique, and different to both of the above mixes. It sounds like a primitive pre-overdub version of the TATE1 mix. It could be speculated that this version predates Troy Tate’s involvement.

“Wonderful Woman”

Version in TATE1 set – 3:19 corrected / 3:29 uncorrected
Version in TATE2 set – 3:18

The two versions of this song are very similar. The guitar seems to be slightly higher in the mix of the TATE1 version, particularly around the 1:45 mark. The only obvious difference is the presence of an echoey ‘tock’ sound at the very beginning of the TATE2 mix. The same sound can be heard at the very beginning of the TATE2 mix of “Suffer Little Children”, but in a higher pitch.

“You’ve Got Everything Now”

Version in TATE1 set – 4:15 corrected / 4:28 uncorrected
Version in TATE2 set – 4:29

The two versions are reasonably similar. From the 3:35 mark in the TATE 1 version, a kid’s voice (or perhaps slide guitar or some studio effect) can be heard.

All thanks gperkins151 who has uploaded the complete TATE 1 and TATE 2 sets (they are labeled and tracklisted as above)

He says

“The link below is the two complete sets (TATE 1 and 2), with correct speed and the best sound that I believe is available. It’s on mediafire, so no charge, no download limit, no canceled uploads , no waiting for second downloads, etc. It’s on four ZIP files labeled TATE 1, parts 1 and 2 and TATE 2, parts 1 and 2.”

http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=4…b52376b7712547

He also kindly uploaded a third set that contains 2 demos: Jeane and What Difference does it make? He says “unfortunately at only 128 kbps”!

All thanks gperkins151

The Smiths – DISCOGRAPHY

The greatest group of the eighties.

One of the greatest of all time.

Morrisey and Marr struck up a seminal partnership. Up there with Lennon/ Macca.

In a decade filled with crassness and emptiness, the Smiths shone like diamonds in the music gutter!

Nuff said.

Fine collection of their unmissable official LPs, some collections and some nice boots! Oh and some videos also!

What the fuck else could you want?!

The Yardbirds – Over/Under Roger (Mono) FLAC

The Yardbirds – Roger The Engineer/Over Under Sideways Down [Mono] – FLAC
Audio CD March 26, 2007
Number of Discs: 2
Original LP Release July 15, 1966 (UK)/ August 8, 1966 (U.S.)
Format: Extra tracks, Original recording remastered, Import
Label: Repertoire

The classic 1966 album by the Jeff Beck ‘version’ of the Yardbirds is now available in Special Slip-case 2CD edition! Hurrah!

This contains the complete Stereo and Mono versions of the album, plus 2 bonus singles tracks! Wonderful stuff!

Roger the Engineer (original title: Yardbirds, US, German, and French title: Over Under Sideways Down) was released in 1966 – produced by bassist Paul Samwell-Smith and Simon Napier-Bell.

It was the only Yardbirds album with all originally-written material. Although the record was officially titled The Yardbirds, it has since been referred to, first colloquially, then semi-officially, as Roger the Engineer, a title stemming from the drawing on its front cover, a cartoon of the record’s audio engineer Roger Cameron by band member Chris Dreja.

Due to the influence of Jeff Beck’s experimentation with guitar distortion, the album is considered a precursor to heavy metal.

The original American versions of this album (issued with a completely different album cover and entitled “Over Under Sideways Down”) omitted the songs “The Nazz Are Blue” and “Rack My Mind” and are mixed differently to the British editions. Regardless, record collectors have sought out both the mono (LN 24210) and stereo (BN 26210) versions since several tracks are featured with slight differences in the mixes. Epic’s 1983 reissue (simply entitled The Yardbirds) featured the original UK album cover, the two missing tracks, duplication of the British mixing, and two additional tracks, the 1966 single “Happenings Ten Years Time Ago” b/w “Psycho Daisies”, both featuring Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.

In 2003, the album was ranked number 349 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Tracklisting

01. Lost Woman
02. Over Under Sideways Down – The Yardbirds, Dreja, Chris
03. The Nazz Are Blue – The Yardbirds, Beck
04. I Can’t Make Your Way
05. Rack My Mind
06. Farewell – The Yardbirds, McCarty
07. Hot House of Omagarishid
08. Jeff’s Boogie – The Yardbirds, Beck
09. He’s Always There
10. Turn into Earth – The Yardbirds, Samwell-Smith
11. What Do You Want
12. Ever Since the World Began

Bonus Singles
13. Happenings Ten Years Time Ago
14. Psycho Daisies

tube says: This is Disc 2. Disc 2 is the only true Mono mix I’ve ever heard and it rocks. Please play it on a Stereo, not headphones.

Big thanks to tubert

Jim White – A Funny Little Cross To Bear [2008]

Jim White – A Funny Little Cross To Bear [2008]

We’ve always loved the maverick music genius of Mr White and are delighted to find this new live LP!

This live recording featuring White, the most idiosyncratic of singer-songwriters, either solo or fronting a trio with guitarist Patrick Hargon and bassist Fiona McBain, A Funny Little Cross To Bear features a handful of Jim White’s works-in-progress and a version of “Plywood Superman” re-arranged for guitar and harmonium.

The overall theme is of wanderlust and the emotional anchors which keep us rooted to one place, a conflict he conveys in “Jailbird” as the desire to “be a jailbird from the prison of my mind”. Elsewhere, he reflects in songs like “Counting Numbers In The Air” and “Stranger Candy” about the distractions of listlessness and drugs.

“That mother’s milk is dandy when you’re a baby,” he warns, his opiated drawl borne on a few etiolated wisps of guitar, “but as the wheels of time grind you down, you get a taste for that stranger candy”.

It’s all summed up in the concluding story of a phone call he received one night, the message of which – “15 years of blessings” – he later realised was his life’s total, rather than an unbroken run.

Tracklisting

01. Stranger Candy 6:19
02. Jailbird 5:10
03. Counting Numbers In The Air 3:58
04. Alabama Chrome 3:28
05. Jim 4:05
06. Plywood Superman 5:39
07. Untitled 3:44

Television – Discography

https://i2.wp.com/farm1.static.flickr.com/164/347142543_dc0196a31d_o.jpg

One of the greatest groups of all! No question!

The great Tom Verlaine and the great Television.

Heroes of Post Punk. Heroes of modern music!

We fucking love em!

Any “greatest albums” list that doesn’t have the sublime Marquee Moon in the top ten, ain’t worth shit!

We posted loads more Television before. Here are some new nice RS links!

https://i0.wp.com/www.univie.ac.at/Anglistik/easyrider/data/pages/talking%20heads/bgr-14.jpg
Television, formed in New York City in 1973, and although Television never achieved much more than a cult audience in their American homeland, they achieved significant commercial success in Europe and today are widely regarded as one of the key bands in the punk and post-punk movements.

They were a part of the early New York punk rock scene, contemporary with bands like the Patti Smith Group and the Ramones.

However, in contrast to the Ramones’ focus on minimalist amateurism, Television’s music was much more technically proficient, defined by the duelling guitars of Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd.

As with many emerging punk bands, the influence of The Velvet Underground was pervasive.

Television also drew inspiration from minimalist composers such as Steve Reich. Tom Verlaine has often cited the influence of The Rolling Stones’ “19th Nervous Breakdown” on Television’s approach to the guitar, and he has also expressed a fondness for Arthur Lee’s Love and the Buffalo Springfield, two groups noted for their dual-guitar interplay.

Television’s ties to punk were underscored by their late 60s garage-rock leanings, as the band often covered The Count Five’s “Psychotic Reaction” and the 13th Floor Elevators’ “Fire Engine” in concert.

In actual fact, Television were key pioneers in pointing beyond punk rock to New Wave and Post Punk.

https://i0.wp.com/www.bbc.co.uk/music/sevenages/assets/artists/television/gallery/1.jpg

Television’s first album Marquee Moon was received positively by music critics and audiences, despite failing to make the Billboard Top 200 – though it sold well in Europe and reached the Top 30 in many countries there.

Upon its initial release in 1977, Roy Trakin wrote in the SoHo Weekly, “forget everything you’ve heard about Television, forget punk, forget New York, forget CBGB’s … hell, forget rock and roll—this is the real item.”

Recently, critics ranked it number 83 on cable music channel VH1’s 2000 list of the 100 Greatest Albums of Rock and Roll, number 128 on Rolling Stone’s 2003 list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

It was ranked number two on Uncut magazine’s 100 Greatest Debut Records, and number 3 on Pitchfork’s list of the best albums of the 1970’s.

Stephen Thomas Erlewine writes that the album was “revolutionary” and “comprised entirely of tense garage rockers that spiral into heady intellectual territory, which is achieved through the group’s long, interweaving instrumental sections.”

Television’s second album, Adventure, was issued in 1978 to less fanfare. The distinctive dual guitars of Lloyd and Verlaine are still evident on Adventure, notably on the tracks “Glory,” “Days,” and “Foxhole.”

The band members’ very independent and strongly held artistic visions, along with Richard Lloyd’s alleged drug abuse, led to the band’s break-up in 1978. Both Lloyd and Verlaine later pursued solo careers.

https://i2.wp.com/img.villagephotos.com/p/2006-11/1227628/television002_small.jpg

Television reformed in 1992, recording an eponymous third album, and have performed live sporadically thereafter.

Since being wooed back on stage together for the 2001 All Tomorrow’s Parties at Camber Sands, England, they have played a number of dates around the world, and continue to perform occasionally in New York while touring on an irregular basis.

In 2007, Richard Lloyd announced he would be amicably leaving the band after a midsummer show in New York City’s Central Park. Unfortunately, owing to an extended stay in hospital recovering from pneumonia, he was unable to take his place with the band for this concert. His place that day was taken by Jimmy Rip.

Rip has since been asked to stay on as a band member replacing Lloyd, and, as of December 2007, the group has been busy recording a new record!

We can’t wait!

    1977 – Marquee Moon

    The album is one of the most acclaimed rock records of all time. Certainly one of my favourite albums of all time.

    Reviews

    • Rolling Stone (10/16/03, p.90) – 5 stars out of 5 – “One of the all-time classic guitar albums….MOON still shimmers with urban grime and psychedelic imagination.”
    • Spin (12/03, p.125) – “It’s the first punk jam album and a thing of swooning, brawny loveliness.”
    • Entertainment Weekly (9/26/03, pp.94-5) – “One of the era’s masterworks, a multilayered thrill ride of interlocking stun-gun guitars and leader Tom Verlaine’s nervous vocals.” – Rating: A
    • Q (5/02 SE, p.143) – 5 stars out of 5 – Included in Q’s “100 Best Punk Albums” – Q (1/03, p.132) – “A brutally stark, yet intricate weave of guitars and affectingly passionate vocals.”

    1978 – Adventure

    Another magnificent work!

    Upon its release, the album fared worse than its predecessor in the United States but entered the charts at #7 in the Britain.

    A noticeable difference between Adventure and Marquee Moon is in the production. Where Marquee Moon is a raw and straightforward album, Adventure has softer and more layered sound with added nuances, such as keyboard textures and back-up vocals.

    Two of the songs, “Foxhole” and “Careful” were older songs from the band’s live set, however, several songs have a reputation as being “filler.”

    The complex guitar work of Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd that gave Marquee Moon its appeal is present on Adventure too.

    1982 – The Blow-Up
    [Recorded live 1978]

    This is a great two-CD collector’s edition, over 85 minutes long, digitally re-mastered and re-edited.

    All material on this recording was selected by Tom Verlaine from live tapes (circa 1978).

    It had been originally released as a Roir double length cassette-only issue in 1982.

    It includes extended versions of Little Johnny Jewel and Marquee Moon … over 14 minutes each!!

    Liner notes were provided by Robert Christgau & John Piccarrella.

    The guitar-led, thin-sounding rock of NYC’s seminal art-punk band Television had many acolytes – from the lovelorn poetry of Australia’s Go-Betweens to the more commercial sound of New Wave poppers the Knack.

    This live double CD, originally released on cassette in 1982, showcases the band at their most experimental and wired.

    Obvious standouts include the intricate, almost Coltrane-esque guitar duel between bandleaders Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd on an incredible 15-minute version of “Little Johnny Jewel,” plus an equally lengthy and tormented reading of “Marquee Moon.”

    Sound quality is extremely variable, but the spirit of the originators of the New York punk loft scene shines through, even on a relatively ordinary rendition of the Rolling Stones’ “Satisfaction.” Raw, dreamy, and ripe for rediscovery.

    1992 – Television


    Television was the group’s eponymous third official album, released in 1992, a full fourteen years after the band’s second studio album and subsequent break up in 1978.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Television, July 28, 2007
    By J P Ryan (Waltham, Massachusetts United States) – See all my reviews
    (REAL NAME)

    By 1992 the legendary status of Television, the seminal band that was culturally, if not musically, linked to New York’s C.B.G.B.’s, had surely grown, yet artistic influence be damned, a reunited Television still couldn’t crack the Billboard Top 200 with their first album in 14 years. “Television”, the group’s third studio album, barely announced itself with abstract cover art and eponymous title, nor does the music jump out and take over your head and body the way “Marquee Moon” (1977) does.

    And, compared to their underrated second album, “Adventure” (1978), this is a more fleet and concise work, eschewing the langourous pace and watery keyboard/guitar textures. But unlike more successful peers such as Ramones, or Blondie, Tom Verlaine, Richard Lloyd, Fred Smith, and Billy Ficca successfully made a Television record for the 1990s that honors, and adds to, their legacy.

    At first “Television” feels rather dry, and passes by pleasently enough; yet with familiarity it eventually reveals itself to be both timeless and unassuming, understated and sometimes gorgeous. More than a decade after its release I’m still hearing some new musical detail or emotional nuance whenever I play it.

    With the band members in their forties, “Television” shows the New York quartet’s ‘maturity’ which is not a back-handed compliment, for the musical intelligence, clarity of purpose, and self-awareness is evident throughout its ten tracks. Sometimes they seem to be evolving material out of loose jams (“Rhyme”), but the overall impression is of an organic and rigorous musical conception.

    And the songs, all of them memorable, give us Tom Verlaine in varied narrative personae, frequently exploring eroticism in a witty, appealing manner. The music is mostly made by guitars, bass, and drums (keyboards are less evident than on the Elektra albums), both stark and lush. Tom Verlaine’s songs, in which darkness, compassion, and playfulness all co-exist in a world that seems hermetic at first, but prove to be Verlaine at his more accessable and communicative.

    The album certainly carries considerable emotional weight, yet many of the lyrics refer to literary and pop culture images from Verlaine’s youth (“Mars”, “The Rocket”, “Rhyme”). As stripped down as Nirvana’s contemporary “Nevermind” or “In Utero”, the sound is typically dryer, less crunchy and inviting, but like Lloyd’s superb solo debut “Alchemy” or Verlaine’s classic “Dreamtime” the record deserves close attentionj. In my case I decided it was a good, slightly disappointing, record after three or four plays, and left it alone for nearly a decade.

    When I came back, after digging into Rhino’s expanded editions of the two Elektra albums and the wonderful, incendiery “At The Old Waldorf” live album, I was amazed to find just how fresh the production was, and how many melodies and riffs had stuck in my brain without my even knowing it. There was a rush of pleasure, hearing this rich, nuanced album that sounds better than ever, and deserves the status of a minor classic.

    The riffs and melody lines are quintessential, if restrained, but do not feel sketchy or underdeveloped; the interlocking friction and lyricism of the guitars, and those exquisite solos – Lloyd’s almost mathematical yet stunning and physical in their impact, Verlaine’s more improvised yet heady, angular – and interplay are like stars piercing through a clear night – they shimmer and glow.

    Verlaine and Lloyd, despite their publicized differences, are an amazing team, virtually telepathic, as inventive as ever yet more playful and allusive. They bring out the best in each other, and I only wish they made more records together. Fred Smith’s bass is as always supple and, on “Rhyme”, entrancing. And Billy Ficca is a master percussionist, adding something fresh to every track.

    Unless you like “Marquee Moon” but have been put off by the rest of the band’s (or Verlaine’s) work, this recording is highly recommended. Too bad it, too, hasn’t been expanded – with three tracks issued on a French ep in ’92, or live material from the hard to find “Live At The Academy” set sold at gigs.
