STUPID and Contagious

Our holiday home from stupidd.blogspot.com !

The Pitchfork 500 – The 500 greatest songs (1977 – 2006)

We are a very naive and gullible lot, here at stupid & contagious. That’s why we’re so eagerly looking forward to Santa Claus’ impending visit this month – on December 25th, we believe!

We are salivating like mad pavlovian dogs at the thought of the great fat man clambering down our chimney. Especially so, given that we don’t even have a fucking chimney!

Anyway, as well as the new uncensored Maria Ozawa DVDs, the reindeer fondler shall be lumping this fine tome, The Pitchfork 500: Our Guide to the Greatest Songs from Punk to the Present, compiled by the good people at Pitchfork Media exploring the greatest 500 tracks of the past thirty years!

The great tracks in question are listed below.

Of course, instead of waiting to hear groans coming from a non-existent chimney (and we always much prefer to hear groans coming from the bed rather than from a chimney!) the wonderful Simon & Schuster or Pitchfork might send us a copy, so we can eulogise about it!! (We’re not known for grovelling and never ever do so ….. but please please please send us the fucking book Mr. Paul Simon and Art Schuster! Please, for the love of God!)

Ladies and gentlemen, as you know, today, November 11, Simon & Schuster imprint Fireside Books publishes The Pitchfork 500: Our Guide to the Greatest Songs from Punk to the Present. This handy paperback chronologically explores Pitchfork’s 500 favorite songs from 1977-2006, constructing an alternate history of the past three decades of popular music– one that extends beyond the typical Baby Boomer-approved canon of the Clash, Prince, Public Enemy, Nirvana, Radiohead, and Outkast.

From art-rock and proto-punk godfathers such as Brian Eno, Iggy Pop, and David Bowie to today’s leading lights such as the Arcade Fire, the White Stripes, and Kanye West; from superstars to cult heroes; and from punk, indie, and pop to hip-hop, electronic music, and metal, we’ve created the ultimate playlist. Interspersed throughout are sidebars on the most vital subgenres from electro to grime to riot grrrl, along with pieces like “Career Killers: The Songs That Ended It All” and “Runaway Trainwrecks: The Post-Grunge Nadir.”

Edited by Pitchfork founder/president Ryan Schreiber and editor-in-chief Scott Plagenhoef, and written by an all-star team of contributors, The Pitchfork 500 is the perfect book for the train ride to work, a cozy winter’s night by the fireside, or extended stays on the toilet. And it sure would make for a nice holiday gift, hint hint.

The book is available in your friendly neighborhood bookstore right now. Or you can order it via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders, Insound, Powells, or Simon & Schuster.

To celebrate the release of The Pitchfork 500, we’ve lined up a few events and media appearances. If you’re in the Chicago area, head on over to the Borders Books & Music in Lincoln Park (2817 N. Clark St.) on Thursday, November 13 at 7 p.m., where Pitchfork editor-in-chief (and Pitchfork 500 co-editor) Scott Plagenhoef and Pitchfork managing editor (and Pitchfork 500 contributing editor) Mark Richardson will read from The Pitchfork 500, followed by a Q&A session and a book signing.

For those of you in Ohio, Mark Richardson will speak on a panel hosted by the Wexner Center For the Arts at Ohio State University in Columbus on Thursday, November 20 at 5 p.m. Peel Slowly and See: Warhol, Music, and Image will feature a discussion of the Velvet Underground and Warhol’s role in music by Mark, Dean & Britta’s Dean Wareham, and Professor Barry Shank of OSU. A performance by Dean & Britta will follow the panel.

Tune your radios to New York’s WNYC-FM at 2 p.m. on Thursday, November 13 to hear The Pitchfork 500 co-editors Ryan Schreiber and Scott Plagenhoef on “Soundcheck” with host John Schaefer. The next day, Friday, November 14, New Yorkers can tune into WRXP-FM’s “Matt Pinfield in the Mornings” between 6 and 10 a.m. for an interview with Ryan Schreiber, while Chicagoans can catch Scott Plagenhoef on WGN Radio’s “The Noon Show” chatting with host Bob Sirott UPDATE: Scott will be on at 2 p.m. with host John Williams.

So many of our favourite tracks are in here. So many of our favourite artists! So many diverse genres. So many seminal sounds. And so many “so’s” in this paragraph!

Some amazing tracks here too that are new to us. And not many duds!

Now, what if someone was to go to the tremendous effort of compiling all these tracks? Well, you’d get the greatest musical compilation to surface in many a century! Probably the greatest since Johann Sebastian Bach compiled the best of his majestic works back in 1740 – but that was just a huge pile of musical scores though and would be unplayable on most CD players!

Which is what some kindly souls at the great SFRP.com have actually done – compiled this amazing collection of 500 tracks covering the past thirty years!

We saw something about this compilation on another blog pitchfork-500

(For dumb internet nazis, the phrase “on another blog” means on another fucking blog. Not on this blog! )

The Pop Group – We are all Prostitutes


Our children shall rise up against us

The Pop Group – “We Are All Prostitutes”
Single
1980
Rough Trade Records


Another incendiary classic from The Pop Group !

A love song for the greedy capitalist clusterfuck that was the awful Thatcher/Reagan era!

The Pop Group’s career with Rough Trade, to whom they moved from Radar Records after the release of their debut LP “Y” in 1979, commenced with this fine track, “We Are All Prostitutes”!

Probably their best-known single, “We Are All Prostitutes” features a guest appearance by free improviser Tristan Honsinger on cello.

It is a seminal piece, a hugely influential moment in modern music!

A song years ahead of its time!

Of course, the single did not sell very well, but has been lauded as a musical touchstone by countless great acts, from Nick Cave to Julian Cope to PJ Harvey … and on and on!

This was followed by the release of their second album, For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder? in 1980, which included a contribution from US proto-rappers The Last Poets.



We are all prostitutes
Everyone has their price

We are all prostitutes
Everyone has their price

And you too will learn to live the lie
Aggression
Competition
Ambition
Consumer fascism

Capitalism is the most barbaric of all religions

Department stores are our new cathedrals
Our cars are martyrs to the cause

We are all prostitutes

Our children shall rise up against us
Because we are the ones to blame
We are the ones to blame
They will give us a new name
We shall be
Hypocrites hypocrites hypocrites


Lyrics (http://www.wedigdixon.com)

Tx Toimia

The Pop Group – She’s Beyond Good and Evil

Like a dancing flame on a bed of nails She is one thing that you cannot buy

A stone cold classic by Bristol’s finest, the seminal and hugely influential The Pop Group!

The Pop Group were formed in Bristol back in 1978 by Mark Stewart (lyrics, vocals), John Waddington (guitar), Gareth Sager (guitar), Simon Underwood (bass) and Bruce Smith (drums, percussion).

They issued this, their debut single, “She is Beyond Good and Evil” on the Radar label the following year.

The band split in 1981, after legal wranglings and internal disagreements.


Members of the group went on to form bands including Pigbag, Maximum Joy, Head and Rip Rig & Panic, the latter notable for the involvement of Neneh Cherry.

When The Pop Group first came onto the scene in late 1978 they were being hailed in the UK press as one of the saviours of rock and roll, and with good reason as the group’s music made almost everything being created at the time seem old hat over night.

The Pop Group’s debut single “She Is Beyond Good and Evil” released in 1979 was an instant classic and one of the landmark recordings of the 1970’s, it was a seething tense piece of aggressive funk/punk/dub/free jazz that demanded attention.

It sounded like nothing in the world at the time of it’s release and gave me the same feeling as when I heard Public Image Ltd.’s first single, it seemed to hint at endless possibilties for rock and roll.

The B side “3:38” should also mentioned this was a pulverizing dose of mind-numbing dub that seemed to look ahead to Pop Group lead singer Mark Stewart’s trailblazing work in the 80’s with Mafia.

– Julian Cope

These abrasive, militant British punks raged against racism, oppression, hunger and anything else that’s a world problem; as usual, there’s no solution, only anger. The seminal Bristol band synthesized Beefheartian structures and tribal dance beats to create a didactic soundtrack that barely lets you breathe.

– PG fan

from the video game inspired by this great song!

My little girl was born on a ray of sound
My little girl was born on a ray of sound
Sleeps on water walks on ice
Sleeps on water walks on ice
got no father, immortal wife
I’d exchange my soul for her
there’s no antidote for her
I’d exchange my soul for her
there’s no antidote for her
my little girl was born on a ray of sound
my little girl was born on a ray of sound

Like a dancing flame on a bed of nails
She is one thing that you cannot buy
with zero reasons for living
with zero reasons for living
my little girl was born on a ray of sound

Our only defence is together as an army
I’ll hold you like a gun

Western values mean nothing to her
Western values mean nothing to her

She is beyond good and evil

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.

WINTERS OF DISCONTENT: THE PEEL SESSIONS 77-83 (1991) [Various Artists]

WINTERS OF DISCONTENT: THE PEEL SESSIONS 77-83 (1991) [Various Artists]

A stunning find this, from the great isupplythecountrywithbutter

A very rare, out of print collection of great Peel tracks from more great bands than you could shake Sarah Palin at!

I mean it’s even got the wonderful cult Irish group Microdisney for fucks sake!

And it’s got one of my favourite songs of all time, The Only Ones’ sublime punk pop classic Another Girl Another Planet!

I officially am in love with this amazing album!

isupplythecountrywithbutter says;

Absolutely and ridiculously great collection of nearly every important Post-Punk band you can think of, live at Maida Vale studios. Yep, all of these recordings were radio sessions for the late, great DJ, John Peel. To name just a few of the artists featured, how about Buzzcocks, The Skids, The Ruts, The Birthday Party, Young Marble Giants, The Redskins, Associates, The Chameleons and many, many more. As you already know, John Peel wanted each artist to feel comfortable and to experiment. Bands tended to stretch out a bit, relax and have fun. These sessions prove this to be the case. 25 tracks, all of them Fan-Fucking-Tastic.

Enjoy!

I ripped this from the original and very out-of-print CD at 192.

Aztec Camera – High Land, Hard Rain (Sire, 1983)

Aztec Camera – High Land, Hard Rain
Released April 1983
Genre Indie pop, New Wave
Length 45:25
Label Sire Records
Producer John Brand, Bernie Clarke

A stunning debut album from Roddy Frame and company!

High Land, Hard Rain was the debut album by Scots indie pop band Aztec Camera, released in 1983.

The band’s first UK 7″ single had been released by Glasgow-based indie label Postcard Records in March 1981, and contained the songs “Just Like Gold” and “We Could Send Letters”. An acoustic version of the latter song appeared on the influential C81 compilation cassette, released by NME in early 1981.

A second single, “Mattress Of Wire”, was also the last Postcard Records release before the group signed for fellow independent record label, Rough Trade. US releases were on Sire Records.

Aztec Camera’s debut album, High Land, Hard Rain, was released in April 1983. The album was successful, gathering significant critical acclaim for its well-crafted, multi-layered pop.

Three tracks from the album had originally appeared on the Oblivious EP which reached number 18 on the UK Singles Chart in November 1983.

The album itself reached number 22 on the UK Albums Chart.

The band went on to release a total of six albums, although most of these were essentially written and played by Frame. The albums included Knife (1984), Love (1987), Stray (1990), Dreamland (1993) and Frestonia (1995).

Some performers never make a bigger splash than with their first record, a situation which the Ramones and De La Soul know all too well. If that’s the case, though, said musicians had better make sure that debut is a doozy. Aztec Camera, or more specifically, Roddy Frame, falls squarely into this scenario, because while he has doggedly plugged away ever since with a series of what are, at times, not bad releases, High Land, Hard Rain remains the lovely touchstone of Frame’s career.

Very much the contemporaries of such well-scrubbed Scottish guitar-pop confectionaries as Orange Juice, but with the best gumption and star quality of them all, Aztec Camera led off the album with “Oblivious,” a mini-masterpiece of acoustic guitar hooks, lightly funky rhythms, and swooning backing vocals.

If nothing tops that on High Land, Hard Rain, most of the remaining songs come very close, while they also carefully avoid coming across like a series of general soundalikes. Frame’s wry way around words of love (as well as his slightly nasal singing) drew comparisons to Elvis Costello, but Frame sounds far less burdened by expectations and more freely fun. References from Keats to Joe Strummer crop up (not to mention an inspired steal from Iggy’s “Lust for Life” on “Queen’s Tattoos”), but never overwhelm Frame’s ruminations on romance, which are both sweet and sour. Musically, his capable band backs him with gusto, from the solo-into-full-band showstopper “The Bugle Sounds Again” to the heartstopping guitar work on “Lost Outside the Tunnel.” Whether listeners want to investigate further from here is up to them, but High Land, Hard Rain itself is a flat-out must-have.

Blondie – Parallel Lines (30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) (2008)

http://fortyfivepesos.files.wordpress.com/2008/05/blondie_-_parallel_lines.jpg

Blondie – Parallel Lines (30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) (2008)
Pop/Punk | MP3 – 192Kbps | 16 Tracks (4 Bonus) | 59.30 Min | 82 MB | English
RAR Recovery Record: YES @ 5% – Compression Method = Best

Peerless purveyors of pure punk power-pop!

And with the sexiest lead singer ever!

Hard to believe this work’s 30 years old! It still sounds fresh and vibrant!

This special edition has some extra tracks and is remastered. Included in this re-release are 4 brand new tracks, including remixes and French versions.

The new 30th Anniversary edition of seminal New York punk band Blondie’s crossover smash album Parallel Lines was released this summer. Containing smash hits like “Heart of Glass”, “Hanging on the Telephone” and “One Way or Another”, among others, this was the album that transformed Blondie from an underground fave to the top of the charts.

Blondie first gained fame in the late 1970s and have so far sold over 60 million records – including sales by the current version of the band, who reunited a few years back after a long period of hiatus.

Blondie were a pioneer in the early American punk rock and new wave scenes. Their first two albums contained strong elements of these genres, and although successful in the United Kingdom and Australia, Blondie were regarded as an underground band in the United States until the release of Parallel Lines in 1978.

Over the next three years, the band achieved several hit singles and was noted for its eclectic mix of musical styles incorporating elements of disco, pop and reggae, while retaining a basic style as a new-wave band.

1: Hanging on the Telephone (2:21)

V/A – Left of the Dial: Dispatches from the ’80s Underground

V/A – Left of the Dial: Dispatches from the ’80s Underground

An astounding collection of great music exploring the best of punk/indie/modern rock in the 80s! Some amazing groups- including our faves, the Go-Betweens! – and a shedload of scintillating tracks!

Love it!

As a sequel to 2004’s similarly packaged Rhino box No Thanks! The ’70s Punk Rebellion, this four-disc set tackles the punk/indie/modern rock of the 80s with equal panache. Subtitled “Dispatches from the 80s Underground,” these 82 non-chronological tracks play like a great college station from the later part of the decade. Encompassing a dizzyingly diverse musical palate, styles range from the artsy Southern twang of R.E.M., to the sugary pop of Aztec Camera, the blistering hardcore of Black Flag, the ghostly techno of Japan and the chilly, noir dance floor attack of New Order. And that’s just on disc one.

Sure, there are some omissions, but the box does a remarkable job balancing more popular acts such as Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Cure and Echo & the Bunnymenwith cult faves like Green On Red and obscurities from the Lyres and the Three O’Clock . Even those who were radio fanatics during these years will likely find tracks they aren’t familiar with, along with getting a flashback rush from those they are. A colorful 64 page book provides track-by-track background information as well as a handful of essays about the decade that approach the music from different perspectives. There are no public service announcements or aspiring DJ’s to interrupt the flow and the remastered sound brings the music to life with crispness low powered FM radio could never rival. –Hal Horowitz

Pere Ubu – The Modern Dance ( Blank 1978 )

Pere Ubu – The Modern Dance
Released 1978
Recorded November 1977, Suma Studios, Cleveland
Genre Post-punk
Length 36:20
Label Blank Records
Producer Pere Ubu and Ken Hamann
After just posting John Cooper Clark’s great post-punk debut, here’s another seminal debut in what could be loosely described as the “art-punk” sub-genre; this time from the David Thomas and the boys, the magnificent and supremely influential Pere Ubu.

A true classic! Kicking off with the elemental power of “Nonalignment Pact” and never relenting!

This seems as fresh today as thirty years ago! Yes, this classic is thirty fucking years old!

Truly timeless stuff!

Down it now motherfuckers!

There isn’t a Pere Ubu recording you can imagine living without. The Modern Dance remains the essential Ubu purchase (as does the follow-up, Dub Housing).

For sure, Mercury had no idea what they had on their hands when they released this as part of their punk rock offshoot label Blank, but it remains a classic slice of art-punk. It announces itself quite boldly: the first sound you hear is a painfully high-pitched whine of feedback, but then Tom Herman’s postmodern Chuck Berry riffing kicks off the brilliant “Non-Alignment Pact,” and you soon realize that this is punk rock unlike any you’ve ever heard.

David Thomas’ caterwauling is funny and moving, Scott Krauss (drums) and Tony Maimone (bass) are one of the great unheralded rhythm sections in all of rock, and the “difficult” tracks like “Street Waves,” “Chinese Radiation,” and the terrifying “Humor Me” are revelatory, and way ahead of their time. The Modern Dance is the signature sound of the avant-garage: art rock, punk rock, and garage rock mixing together joyously and fearlessly.

Squeeze – The Complete Squeeze BBC Sessions (2008, 2CD)

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41OQtLc1WzL._SL500_AA240_.jpg

Squeeze – The Complete Squeeze BBC Sessions (2008, 2CD)
Mp3 / 190 kbps VBR:
A wonderful selection of Post-Punk, Power Pop from the wonderful songwriting partnership of Difford and Tilbrook in Squeeze.

These tracks are compiled from the numerous sessions they recorded for the BBC over the years.

There aren’t many bands that have weathered as well as Squeeze. They’ve notched up 17 studio albums and over 20 hit singles and were on the road for 25 years, retired and then reformed last year to do it all again.

The songwriting partnership of Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook was one of the most fruitful in UK Pop history, they wrote over 1000 songs together and were considered the finest songwriters of their generation, ‘the Lennon & McCartney of the ’80s’.

This double CD features 17 years of BBC studio recordings which have thrown up some classic moments; acoustic versions of some of their biggest hits and live to air recordings, giggles and all.

‘We always work best when we keep things simple’, said Chris Difford in 1993, ‘we know that in the end, it really does come down to the singer and the song’.

Various Artists – C81 Tape


Various Artists – C81 Tape (1981)
Alternative / Indie
Mp3 @ 269kbps

Less famous than the C86 tape, from Brit music mag, New Musical Express together with seminal Indie label Rough Trade, this is a fascinating look at what the Indie Music world in UK – and further afield – looked like at the dawn of the eighties!

C81 was a cassette that was obtained through the British magazine New Musical Express in 1981 (hence (C)assette 81) and released in conjunction with the record label Rough Trade. Intended to mark the first 5 years of the independent label movement in the UK record industry and Rough Trade itself, it was the first in a series of many cassette releases from the paper. Probably the best known (and derided) was the C86 compilation.

Publishing a tape was also an acknowledgment of the flourishing self published cassette culture of the time that the NME had been supporting in its short lived Garageland column.

C81 was compiled by NME journalist Roy Carr, and Christopher Rose, who worked in public relations for Rough Trade. To get a copy, NME readers had to collect two coupons from the newspaper and send off £1.50. The 15,000 orders were sold out within a month.

The tape contained a set of 24 diverse tracks ranging from jazz (James Blood Ulmer), poetry (John Cooper Clarke), ska (The Beat), and the folksy ‘Canterbury Scene’ (Robert Wyatt).

British music writer Simon Reynolds called it “post punk’s swan song”, noting the appearance of three acts from Scottish independent label Postcard Records, and the emerging new pop tendency of bands such as Linx and Scritti Politti.

This is actually much better than C86 in terms of the quality of the acts. Many great bands. Some amazing music.

It’s even got Dublin punk cabaret act The Virgin Prunes, led by one Gavin Friday (professional friend of Boner, sorry Bono!)

A great piece on the C81 Tape below from Stylus;

nME’s C86 cassette was promoted with a week-long series of gigs at London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts, spawned a genre of the same name, and is feted on a regular basis by blogs such as Indie MP3 – Keeping C86 Alive! Twenty years later, the compilation remains firmly entrenched in the indie pop enthusiast’s consciousness.

But C86’s predecessor has never reaped such rewards—quite an injustice too, since NME’s less-heralded, oft-forgotten C81 compilation is more catholic in reach and gleaned from a coterie of far more influential artists.

Like an ancient amphora unearthed during an excavation, the 24-song cassette brilliantly captures the aesthetics of its bygone era: the unfettered boldness, the challenging complexity, and the earnest self-consciousness of post-punk. The comp’s provenance is fairly basic: it was borne out of a conversation between an NME journalist, Roy Carr, and a promotions department employee from Rough Trade Records, Christopher Rose. At the time, Rose was working at Rough Trade with, as he put it, “one of the best-ever PR teams”: one-time Smiths manager Scott Piering and former Slash patriarch Claude Bessy.

“On one of my regular trips to the NME, I was talking with Roy, and during the convo came up with the idea. Obviously I loved it—it was my idea!—and he did too, so we spoke to our respective people and everybody liked it.”

The decision to release the compilation on cassette was Rough Trade and NME’s way of acknowledging the then-prosperous cassette culture. (American and U.K. artists were avidly selling or exchanging music on cassette through a loose network of other artists, as well as fanzine readers.) The compilation was also expected to build on the relative momentum generated by Elvis Costello’s Ten Bloody Marys and Ten How’s Your Fathers (released Nov. 6, 1980) and Bow Wow Wow’s Your Cassette Pet (released one week later)—the U.K.’s first cassette-only releases.

“Cassette culture was very important then,” said Rose, who now runs a vacation villa in Spain. “People had been taping stuff for years, first on reel-to-reel and then on cassettes. I’ve still got loads of tapes of the John Peel show and other stuff. Scott and I—mostly Scott—used to tape loads of gigs by bands we worked with. This was for our own pleasure; I seem to recall some of the recordings were even released. Obviously this trend lives on in the whole bootleg, pirate CD, file-sharing culture of today.”

It’s also important to note C81’s influence upon pop music’s great egress in the late 70s/early 80s. Twenty-five years ago, personal music portability was an unknown concept. However, thanks to releases like C81 and a revolutionary piece of technology introduced in 1979 known as the Sony Walkman (previously dubbed the Stowaway, the Soundabout, and the Freestyle), pop music began to leave the bedroom. It became more disposable, an accessory: “Something that your Pakistani tobacconist will be able to sell under the counter,” as Malcolm McLaren once said.

Just as importantly, C81 also lionized the nascent independent movement, showcasing acts from fledgling labels that had sprouted up in the previous five years: Postcard, 2 Tone, Industrial, and New Hormones.

“It was just another phenomenon that weakened the control of the music industry by the six major labels that existed then,” Rose explained. “We used to say that before the arrival of independent labels and, crucially, independent distributors, six people actually controlled whether you could be in the music industry or not. The independent labels and distributors completely broke that control, although it’s obviously regressed somewhat since then.”

Of course, C81’s status as a landmark release was solidified by its tracklist, which was unparalleled in scope. The cassette cut a wide swath across the post-punk landscape—from industrial and free jazz, to The Sound of Young Scotland and conceptual pop, to DIYers and pre-post-punk luminaries such as Pere Ubu and The Red Krayola.

Compilations with such grandiose ambitions typically spur derision in some listeners, but any Icarusian tendencies on C81’s part are bridled by the inclusion of tracks like the barmy “The Day My Pad Went Mad” by mad Manc John Cooper Clarke, as well as cookie-cutter (but catchy, nonetheless) pop fare from Essential Logic and Linx.

Simply put, the collection delivers highlight after highlight: the volcanic opening crescendo to Orange Juice’s “Blue Boy,” and its lyrics detailing a lad stricken with lovesick schoolboy disease; the saccharine-y pop bliss of Scritti Politti’s “The ‘Sweetest Girl’”; “Kebab Traume Live” by D.A.F. and its garrote-around-the-throat sound; the tribal rhythms, gypsy violins, and plucky guitars in “Shouting Out Loud” by The Raincoats; “The Milkmaid” by The Red Krayola, and its siren-like vocals, lulling the listener into a trance; the humorous vitriol in the lyrics of The Specials’ “Raquel”; Josef K’s “Endless Soul” and its sharp, clean riffing; the chest-constricting tension of Cabaret Voltaire’s “Raising The Count”; and the compilation’s closer—the epic, breathless “Parallel Lines” by Subway Sect.

According to Rose, accumulating such a pop bonanza wasn’t particularly difficult. “Rough Trade was also a distributor of other labels, so we had a huge amount of contacts,” he said. “Getting material really wasn’t a problem; everybody was keen to be involved. I’m pretty sure that there was way more material than space available.”

Upon its release, C81 did have its naysayers, particularly those who felt the compilation was about profit, and was not a true crystallization of cassette culture and the independent label movement. However, such negativity was atypical, as C81 ended up being a massive hit for Rough Trade and NME; thousands of readers ordered the cassette (complete with its dowdy colors and a campy illustration) by doing the necessary busywork: clipping two coupons from the magazine and mailing in £1.50.

“If memory serves,” Rose said, “the C81 compilation sold over 15,000 copies, giving a response rate of way over 10 percent. Normal response rates are typically around the one to four percent range, so this was a big commercial success, as well as a great slice of culture.”

That success led to subsequent compilations offered by NME: the follow-ups, Jive Wire and Mighty Reel, which were released in 1982; Mad Mix II (1983); Raging Spool (1984); Tapeworm and Department of Enjoyment (both in 1985). And, of course, C86.

And what were Rose’s thoughts regarding that particular comp?

C81 was way better than C86, which was much more about the NME trying to shape and control indie music, and keep itself relevant. It failed!”

Some Seminal Post-Punk albums!

From an amazing period in music, just after the death knell of punk sounded.

So amazing that it is being copied left, right and centre in recent years by useless wanna-be bands!

Here is a great selection from innovative and influential groups such as The Wire, Gang of Four,Talking Heads,Throbbing Gristle and The Slits!

Wire-Pink Flag


The wonderful Wire with probably their greatest moment. Ask Elastica .. they ripped them off entirely!

This LP leans toward the punk end of the post punk spectrum.

Gang of Four-Entertainment!

Funk without the funk. Classic post-punk sound, delivery, production and aesthetic.

Talking Heads-The Name of This Band is Talking Heads


Yes, the Heads did once make great music!

Orange Juice-You Can’t Hide Your Love Forever

Scottish post-punk popsters supreme! Fun, poppy and a direct forebear of some sounds that would emerge from Britain in the following couple decades.

Throbbing Gristle-20 Jazz Funk Greats


The birth of industrial!

There seems to have been a giant leggy chick in the band!

The Slits-Cut

These mad bitches made great music! Post punk boobies too! What more could you ask for?

They sure could teach that cnut Courtney Love a thing or two!

Public Image Ltd. – Plastic Box (4 CD) (1999)

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41OQtLc1WzL._SL500_AA240_.jpg

Public Image Ltd. – Plastic Box (4 CD)(1999)
Mp3@192

A wonderful collection from Lydon’s seminal post-Pistols outfit!

Some amazing music here. And so fucking influential!

This is a limited Edition, Four CD, Definitive Collection! It contains great Album Tracks, Rarities and Unreleased BBC Tracks.

https://i2.wp.com/www.pleasance.co.uk/exhibition/john_lydon.jpgIn the liner notes of PiL’s Plastic Box compilation, Lydon remarked that:

“In some ways Album was almost like a solo album. I worked alone with a new bunch of people. Obviously the most important person was Bill Laswell. But it was during the recording of this album in New York that Miles Davis came into the studio while I was singing, stood behind me and started playing. Later he said that I sang like he played the trumpet, which is still the best thing anyone’s ever said to me. To be complimented by the likes of him was special. Funnily enough we didn’t use him…”

THE PLASTIC BOX is the four-disc collection of the best of the music tracks from the Public Image Limited (a.k.a. The John Lydon Band). The first two discs are the best of the bunch (when they still were a collective unit). Disc three and four are best used as coasters (unless you love the John Lydon version of P.I.L.). Instead of searching out for the first three albums, you can get them all collated in this box set. The plastic box also comes with a nice booklet with pictures and thoughts from John Lydon.

If you love Public Image Limited (either versions) then you must seek out this set. You wont be sorry.

Highly recommended.

By Joseph P. Ulibas

Essential 4-disc retrospective of PiL’s 14-year career. Along with many tracks culled from the studio albums, the set includes B-sides, 12” versions, a few alternate mixes, a selection of radio session performances other rarities to round out the collection of the serious PiL enthusiast. Highlights include an instrumental remix of “Fodderstompf,” the outtake “Pied Piper,” the B-sides “Question Mark” and “Selfish Rubbish,” and “Criminal,” from the “Point Break” soundtrack.

Unfortunately, this set fulls short of being definitive. Nothing from the two live albums is included (which most people would regard as a good thing). There’s also nothing from “Commercial Zone” (except “Blue Water,” which was an official B-side), and B-sides/remixes from the latter era of PiL are almost non-existent (the 1987 remakes of “The Suit” and “Religion” would have been perfect inclusions as they were only ever released as 12” vinyl B-sides, and never on CDs).

Practically every track from the first five studio albums (1978-1986) is included, and then selected material from the final three (1987-1992) is squeezed onto the last disc, which reinforces the (false) perception that the LA-based PiL was something of a write-off. In the absence of a fifth disc, deleting tracks from the earlier albums – to allow room for more songs of the later PiL – would have resulted in a more balanced set (it’s annoying that great, underrated material from “Happy?” and “9” is absent to provide room for dead weight from “Flowers Of Romance” and “This Is What You Want…This Is What You Get”).

No matter though – despite its shortcomings, “Plastic Box” proves what a damn good band PiL in all its various permutations was (John Lydon’s frank and informative liner notes rate a mention too). Collected sets rarely get much better than this…
