Pere Ubu – Dub Housing (1979)

Pere Ubu – Dub Housing
# Original Release Date: 1979
# Audio CD (June 22, 1999)
# Label: Thirsty Ear
# ASIN: B00000J7N1

The fine 1999 remastered reissue of the classic 1978 album originally released on Chrysalis.

This LP is now considered a landmark album in punk and modern music !

Ubu’s first masterpiece!

Listening to this recording, it’s hard to imagine that it was released in 1978. Pere Ubu is a band that has had few antecedents and few followers. Their work is an odd mix of pop hooks, noise, edgy instrumental improvisations on guitar and sax, and the always spine tingling psychovoice of Dave Thomas. Ubu is unique and in many ways hard to get into initially. My first and last Ubu experience for 20 years was the Art of Walking, the band’s “anti-rock” album and after two or three listens I sold the album (big mistake probably, since the LP is worth serious bucks now.) But picking up Dub Housing, I realize now that I was missing something quite special and prophetic.

Dub Housing is a masterpiece. From the hook rich tracks like Navvy and On the Surface to the noise experiments on Thriller, this is a forward thinking album. Moments in the recording might have roots in the art-rock of Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band, but mixed in with that is the rock drive of Iggy Pop and the Stooges, and some of the sound experiments of the Art Bears, or Henry Cow. Yet Ubu is not like any of these bands. Stand out tracks on the recording include the tense and yet funky, Navvy; the terrifying Dub Housing; the slightly wobbly Drinking Wine Spodyody, with is not-quite-together feel in the rhythm section and Dave Thomas’ warbling neurotic vocal; the almost psychobeachpop of Ubu Dance Party; the noise freakouts of Thriller and Blow Daddy-o; and the superspooky stalker music of Codex. But to me the cut that most perfectly depicts Ubu on this CD is Caligari’s Mirror. The cut is a wild take off on the sea chantey “What Can You Do With a Drunken Sailor” delivered with barely controlled paranoia by Thomas, which then morphs into a bright pop-hook chorus. The song is layered with keyboard white noise and Tom Herman’s tense guitar licks. This captures the tension in Ubu between art and rock; between paranoia and hilarity.

Pere Ubu is not easy music, though, with their well crafted pop hooks, they are more accessible than Captain Beefheart, the band they most resemble. Dave Thomas’ vocals are the signature of the band, and if you don’t like his brand of warbling and his thin tone, you won’t like Ubu. But listening now with 21st Century ears it’s hard to imagine a rock band that goes farther than Ubu. Their influence can be heard in the work of Sonic Youth, Radiohead, and perhaps arguably even Nine Inch Nails. Love them or hate them, Pere Ubu was probably one of the most important alternative bands to have come out of the 70s, and one that still sounds outré even 25 years later.

Genre Post-punk / New wave
Length 3:50

Producer Rich Costey, Interpol

Babe, it’s time we give something new a try


“No I in Threesome” is the wonderful second track on the New New Wavers’ great 2007 album, Our Love to Admire.

The video was directed by Patrick Daughters and was filmed in London at Black Island Studios.

Through the storms and the light
Baby, you stood by my side
And life is wine
But there are days in this life
When you see the teeth marks of time
Two lovers divide
Sound meets sound, babe
The echoes the surround
And know that we need is one thing
Now what is there to allow?
Babe, it’s time we give something new a try
Oh, alone we may fight
So, just let us be free
And baby tonight
I see your lips are on fire
And life is wine
Now the windows are open the moon is so bright
There’s no one can tell us what love brings, you and I
Sound meets sound, babe

The echoes they surround
And know that we need is one thing
Now what is there to allow
Babe, it’s time we give something new a try
Oh, alone we may fight
So just let us be free, tonight
Through the storms and the light
Baby you stood by my side
And life is wine
You feel the sweet breath of time
It’s whispering, its truth not mine
There’s no I in threesome
And I am all for it
Babe, it’s time we give something new a try
Oh, alone we may fight
And feathers bend like trees in the moonlight
Babe, it’s time we give something new a try
Oh, alone we may fight
So just let us be free tonight

Interpol – Our Love To Admire (2007)

Interpol – Our Love To Admire (2007)
Released July 6, 2007
Recorded 11/06 to 05/07
Electric Lady Studios / The Magic Shop Studios, New York City
Genre Post-punk, New Wave, Indie rock
Length 47:05
Label United States – Capitol Records
Label United Kingdom – Parlophone
Producer Interpol and Rich Costey
Mp3 @ various kbps

We had keyboards on from the start which we’ve never done before. It’s like a fifth member. There’s a lot more texture, and interesting sounds, there’s definitely progression and growth. ”

— Daniel Kessler, in NME

Rubbish artwork aside, a return to form by the boys from interpol!

It’s not Turn On The Bright Lights but their third LP is still a rather fine LP in its own right.

Recorded at Electric Lady Studios in Greenwich Village and The Magic Shop Studios in New York City, the album was the group’s first to be released on a major label, following the release of their debut and follow-up albums on the independent label Matador Records.

On 25 April 2007, the band officially announced the album title as Our Love to Admire as well as the track listing.

The first single off the new album, “The Heinrich Maneuver”, was released on 7 May 2007.

The album has received a positive critical response of 70 overall at Metacritic.

According to band members, Our Love to Admire is more “expressive” than the group’s previous efforts, and uses many more keyboards and textures. Prior to the album’s release, Billboard offered the following brief descriptions of some of the band’s new songs:
“ First single “The Heinrich Maneuver” is a peppy kiss-off to an ex-love now residing on the opposite coast and hits radio May 7; the band has been playing it of late during its just-concluded Canadian tour. The band is on familiar footing with tracks like the tense “No I in Threesome” (“Maybe [sic] it’s time we give something new a try,” frontman Paul Banks sings) and the relentless “Mammoth,” which are loaded with Daniel Kessler’s simple, repeated guitar riffs and Carlos D’s powerful bass underpinnings. There are some new sonic experiments; the album begins with the funereal, nearly six-minute “Pioneer to the Falls,” featuring Jim Morrison-esque crooning from Banks, and wraps with another unusually ambient piece, “The Lighthouse.” Hints of soul creep in on the spaced-out “Rest My Chemistry” (“I haven’t slept for two days / I’ve bathed in nothing but sweat,” Banks sings) and “Pace Is the Trick.” ”
I see your lips are on fire
And life is wine
Now the windows are open the moon is so bright
There’s no one can tell us what love brings, you and I
Sound meets sound, babe

No I in Threesome

Interpol – Turn On The Bright Lights (2002)

Interpol – Turn On The Bright Lights
Released August 19, 2002
Recorded Tarquin Studios, Bridgeport, Connecticut
Genre Post-punk / New Wave / Indie rock
Length 49:02
Label Matador
Producer Pete Katis, Gareth Jones
Mp3 @ 320 / RS

I had seven faces
thought I knew which one to wear
But I’m sick of spending these lonely nights
training myself not to care
The subway is a porno
And the pavements they are a mess
I know you’ve supported me for a long time
somehow I’m not impressed

But New York Cares
New York Cares

Got to be some more change in my life

subway she is a porno
and the pavements they are a mess
I know you’ve supported me for a long time
somehow I’m not impressed

It’s up to me now turn on the bright lights
It’s up to me now turn on the bright lights

One of our favourite LPs of recent years, the sublime and seminal TOTBL!

What an amazing debut album!

We played this obsessively when it first came out 6 years ago!

This album, and the Interpol sound, have been ripped off wholesale since!

I know Interpol had listened to a shitload of great post-punk and new wave albums, but they made something new and wonderful out of it. The groups who copied Interpol didn’t!

This fine work was released in Autumn 2002 on Matador Records to a great deal of critical acclaim. TOTBL sold exceptionally well for an indie release and has sold over 500,000 copies so far.

TOTBL was also ranked highly on the yearly lists of many music critics, and has to date sold 86,000 in the UK despite only charting as high as #101.

Musically, many have pointed out the similarities between Turn on the Bright Lights and post punk and new wave bands such as Joy Division and The Chameleons. There are influences, sure, but Interpol manage to make a work that’s distinct and of their own.

“PDA”, “NYC”, “Obstacle 1” and “Say Hello to the Angels” were the singles from Turn on the Bright Lights.

The Psychedelic Furs – Discography

https://i1.wp.com/mog.com/pictures/wikipedia/66782/Psychedelic_furs.jpg

Despite the dumb name, we do like this crowd.
Below you’ll find various Furs albums and versions thereof (remastered), as well as a greatest hits package.

The Furs came together in England’s emerging punk scene in 1977, where they were initially called “RKO,” then “Radio.” They then vacillated between calling themselves “The Psychedelic Furs” and “The Europeans”, playing gigs under both names before permanently settling on the former name.

The band initially consisted of Richard Butler (vocals) (initially using the name Butler Rep), Tim Butler (bass guitar), Duncan Kilburn (saxophone), Paul Wilson (drums)[and Roger Morris (guitars). By 1979, this line up had expanded to a sextet with Vince Ely replacing Wilson on drums and John Ashton being added on guitar.

They are best known for their massive hit “Pretty in Pink”.

In 1986, the band re-recorded a version of “Pretty in Pink” for the soundtrack of the film of the same name. Released as a single, it became their biggest hit to that time in the US, and their biggest-ever UK hit.

From 1988 on, The Furs’ were no longer seen on the Hot 100 pop charts in the US, and only sporadically made the lower rungs of the UK pop charts. However, their chart success continued with three #1 hits on the US Modern Rock chart between 1988 and 1991.

The band split in the early 1990s, with the Butler brothers going on to found Love Spit Love.

After spending most of the decade apart, Butler, Butler and Ashton re-formed The Psychedelic Furs in 2000, and released a live album Beautiful Chaos: Greatest Hits Live, which also featured a new studio recording, “Alive (For Once In My Lifetime).”

Since then the Furs continue to tour the world along with former Love Spit Love drummer Frank Ferrer, ex-Information Society and World Party keyboardist Amanda Kramer and saxophonist Mars Williams who returned to the band after a stint in the late 1980s.
