Cheers Dave!

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!)


more info: http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/…..00-is-here
or: http://thepitchfork500.com/

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. Then on December 2, Scott will appear live on Chicago’s WGN “Midday News” television show to discuss The Pitchfork 500.

For a complete rundown of these and future events, head over to www.thepitchfork500.com

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! )

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://i1.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://i2.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://i1.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.”
    • Uncut (11/01, p.134) – “Television may have vowed to ‘pull down the future’, but no one knew they’d reinvent it. Proof that lightning can, indeed, strike itself.”- Ranked #2 in Uncut’s list of the ‘Greatest Debuts’ (Lost to Velvet Underground & Nico)

    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.

    The Saints – This Perfect Day


    The Saints – This Perfect Day

    One of our favourite punk /post punk bands and one of our favourite Ozzy band, the mighty Saints!

    This comes from back in the early days, from a punk festival at The Hope and Anchor, during their first tour of the United Kingdom.

    The audience, wanting their punk bands to look like a punk band, never really took to the Saints and the response on this record is lukewarm at best but the music is pure brilliance.

    The Chameleons – The Fan And The Bellows [1986]

    The Chameleons – The Fan And The Bellows [1986]
    MP3 @ 320 kbps / RS / 98.71 MB

    A band we really liked a lot back in the day, purveyors of wonderful indie music, Britland’s !

    We’d almost forgotten about them though. But we’re soon gonna make up for that!

    Starting with this, a fascinating collection of classic recordings!

    These are gleamed from their three studio albums; 1983’s Script of the Bridge, 1985’s What Does Anything Mean? Basically and their best album, 1986’s Strange Times!

    Sadly though, soon after the release of Strange Times, the band split!

    They would reunite briefly many years later but no further studio albums would be released.

    //upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/1c/The_Chameleons.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

    The Chameleons were a dream-pop /post-punk band that formed in Greater Manchester, England in 1981. They consisted of singer and bassist Mark Burgess, guitarist Reg Smithies, guitarist Dave Fielding, drummer John Lever as well as keyboardists Alistair Lewthwaite and Andy Clegg.

    Their body of work is still critically acclaimed within the music press.

    This great band influenced groups as diverse as Interpol, Editors , Protokoll, The Comsat Angels, Puressence, and a slew of others!

    Through Mark Burgess’ vocals and dark and ironic lyrics, their songs often dealt with personal themes of childlike innocence and a reverence for nostalgia. Musically, perhaps most notable in their work was the band’s innovative and distinctive use of dual guitar melodies, courtesy of Reg Smithies and Dave Fielding, as opposed to the traditional rhythm-and-lead guitarist format prevalent in rock music even to this day. These arrangements were often characterized by the use of delay and choral effects.

    After their third release, Strange Times, in 1987 they abruptly disbanded following the sudden death of band manager Tony Fletcher.

    The Chameleons were, for all practical purposes, extinct for well over a decade before a small series of successful live dates and the release of a final studio album in 2001, entitled Why Call It Anything?.

    The band quickly dissolved once again in 2002 due to personal differences, after a successful reunion tour which took them across Europe and the United States.

    The band never attained the level of commercial success or fame enjoyed by their contemporaries (e.g. The Cure, Echo and the Bunnymen).

    Slint – Spiderland (1991)

    Slint – Spiderland (1991)
    MP3 320 kbps / 93 MB

    Released March 15, 1991
    Recorded August 1990 – October 1990 at River North Records in Chicago, Illinois, United States
    Genre Indie rock
    Length 39:38
    Label Touch and Go
    Producer Brian Paulson

    Ten fucking stars
    – Steve Albini

    A very influential disc from the great and pioneering Slint. This LP provided the template for what would be known as the Post Rock movement

    Spiderland was the second studio album from Slint, released on March 27, 1991 on Touch and Go. Featuring dramatically alternating dynamics and vocals ranging from spoken word to shouting, the album contains narrative lyrics that emphasize alienation. Spiderland was Slint’s first release on Touch and Go, and the group’s last record.

    The recording of Spiderland in 1990 is often said to have been emotionally demanding for members of Slint. Although Spiderland was not widely recognized on its initial release, it eventually sold more than 50,000 copies and became a landmark album in underground music after Slint broke up.

    https://i2.wp.com/upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/68/Spiderland_advert.JPG

    The album has been highly influential on the styles of many bands in the post-rock and math rock genres, including Mogwai and Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and has been named a favorite of several indie rock musicians.

    In 2007, Slint reunited for a tour consisting of performances of Spiderland in its entirety.

    The album’s black-and-white cover photograph, which depicts members of the band treading water in the lake of an abandoned quarry, was taken by the great Will Oldham!

    An article in The Stranger credited Oldham’s cover artwork for creating a mystique surrounding Slint, noting “most people only had seen Slint as four heads floating in a Kentucky quarry on Spiderland’s cover.

    Listeners pondered the band’s sparsely adorned black-and-white covers as if they were runes bearing secrets.”Chris Gaerig of the Michigan Daily wrote “the cover of Slint’s masterful Spiderland captures the joyous fear and violence of the album so precisely it shakes souls. The group—submerged in a lake to their chins with deranged smiles—seems to be stalking you, hovering out of the black-and-white façade.”

    Several other promotional images have been taken from the same photo session with Oldham.

    //upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/9/92/Slint_-_Spiderland_back_cover.JPG” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

    A photo of a spider taken by Noel Saltzman is used on the back cover, reflecting the album’s title. The inside sleeve contains the message “interested female vocalists write 1864 douglas blvd. louisville, ky. 40205”. McMahan confirmed that this message was serious, and said “We did get some responses and we did listen to CDs and tapes. We didn’t end up doing anything immediately, so that idea of adding someone sort of fell by the wayside.”

    The message “this recording is meant to be listened to on vinyl” is printed on some compact disc issues of Spiderland, demonstrating Slint’s preference of analog audio devices!

    Spiderland received scant attention from major publications upon its release. One of the first major reviews of the album was written by Steve Albini, producer of Slint’s previous album Tweez, for Melody Maker. Albini was highly positive about the album, awarding it “ten fucking stars“, saying “Spiderland is a majestic album, sublime and strange, made more brilliant by its simplicity and quiet grace. …. Spiderland is flawless. The dry, unembellished recording is so revealing it sometimes feels like eavesdropping. The crystalline guitar of Brian McMahan and the glassy, fluid guitar of David Pajo seem to hover in space directly past the listener’s nose. The incredibly precise-yet-instinctive drumming has the same range and wallop it would in your living room. …. Play this record and kick yourself if you never got to see them live. In ten years, you’ll lie like the cocksucker you are and say you did …”

    Retrospective reviews of the album have been mixed but generally the significance of the great LP is acknowledged.

    Mogwai – Young Team (1997)

    //upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/8/83/Mogwaiyoungteam.jpg/200px-Mogwaiyoungteam.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

    Mogwai – Young Team
    Released 21 October 1997
    Recorded MCM Studios, Hamilton, Scotland
    Genre Post-rock, instrumental rock
    Length 64:31
    Label Chemikal Underground, Jetset
    Producer Paul Savage, Andy Miller

    Mogwai Young Team was recorded in Summer 1997 at MCM Studios (now known as Chem19 Studios) in Hamilton, Scotland, and was produced by Paul Savage and Andy Miller.

    The album features extreme dynamic contrast between quiet and loud, a technique which Mogwai are well known for. It is largely instrumental, with one notable exception (“R U Still in 2 It”). It features limited instrumentation, consisting mainly of guitar, bass and drums, although other instruments can sometimes be heard throughout the album, such as glockenspiel (“Tracy”), piano (“Radar Maker”, “With Portfolio”, “A Cheery Wave from Stranded Youngsters”) and flute (“Mogwai Fear Satan”).

    When questioned about his opinion on Mogwai Young Team, Mogwai guitarist Stuart Braithwaite said:

    “ The album was a total disaster. We were young and naïve and had too little time. We should have said; “No, the record isn’t done until six months later.” Instead, we sat and mixed whole nights and felt bad. We didn’t talk to each other. When the album was released, we just wanted to forget everything. We were certain that all critics would pan it, honestly. After that, we understood that we had think stuff over that we recorded.”

    Mogwai drummer Martin Bulloch has also given his thoughts on the album:

    “ The recording of Young Team was fucked up. There were quite a lot of sketches going on. I think the whole of the first LP is angry. It was the mood of the whole thing – there was a lot of anger about.”

    The LP also features a track written by the boy from the Arab Strap, Falkirk’s own Aidan Moffat!

    Despite the members of Mogwai’s negative opinions about the album, Mogwai Young Team was listed as #97 on Pitchfork Media’s Top 100 Albums of the 1990s, and is considered their best by many listeners, including Kele Okereke of Bloc Party, who cited Mogwai Young Team as the record that changed his life.

    1. “Yes! I Am a Long Way from Home” – 5:57
    2. “Like Herod” – 11:41

    Mogwai – The Hawk Is Howling (2008)

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


    Mogwai – The Hawk Is Howling (2008)
    Genre: Post-Rock/Instrumental
    Format: MP3
    Quality: VBR kbps
    Size: 76MB
    —————
    Released September 22, 2008
    Recorded Chem19 Studios
    Hamilton, Scotland
    Label Wall of Sound
    Producer Andy Miller

    The much anticipated new release from Scottish post-rockers Mogwai.

    I’m now totally fucking shocked! Yes, I’ve just found out Jim Morrison is dead! I need a bottle of Jack Daniels NOW!

    So that really was his grave in Pere Lachaise cemetery, where I visited all those years ago! I’d partaken of a tad too much Moroccan hash that day and thought it was Morrison’s house I’d been visiting and that I’d had afternoon tea with the man himself!

    Anyway, The Hawk Is Howling is the Mog’s sixth studio album and will be released on September 22, 2008 through Wall of Sound, Play It Again Sam, and Matador in the UK, Europe, and the USA, respectively.

    The album was recorded in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire at Chem19 Studios with producer Andy Miller, whom the band had previously worked with on their early releases from 1997—1998.

    Mogwai recorded the album from September 2007 to February 2008, mixing the album in March 08 with Garth Jones at the band’s own Castle of Doom Studios in Glasgow.

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

    The album was recorded and produced by Andy Miller at Chem19 Studios in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, Scotland and mixed by Garth Jones at Castle of Doom Studios in Glasgow, Scotland between September 2007—March 2008.

    The album marks the first time in ten years that the band worked with Andy Miller, and at Chem19 Studios, since recording the song “Small Children in the Background” for the No Education = No Future (Fuck the Curfew) EP in May 1998.

    Several new songs were debuted at a show for the Triptych Festival at Tramway in Glasgow, Scotland on April 26, 2008—”The Precipice”, “I Love You, I’m Going to Blow Up Your School”, “I’m Jim Morrison – I’m Dead”, “Thank You Space Expert”, “Batcat” and “Scotland’s Shame”.

    Barry Burns described the album’s songs as being “dreamy ballads about forbidden love gone awry, one minute pointless instrumentals and … spoken word about the future of the music industry in India.

    Mogwai’s sixth full-length CD The Hawk Is Howling contains all the extremity and dynamics you know and love, but with a more curious array of rhythms and melodies, hinting a bit more than previous records at both their electronic and metal influences. Additionally, with only two songs under the five-minute mark, this is maybe their most “cinematic”-sounding record to date (which is saying something).

    Stereolab – Chemical Chords (08/2008)

    Stereolab – Chemical Chords (08/2008)
    Released on 18th August 2008 by Duophonic UHF Disks/4AD.
    A pioneering and innovative band we really liked back in the day! We’re delighted that they’re still together and releasing music!

    Chemical Chords’ is the first album proper since 2004’s ‘Margerine Eclipse’, and emerged from songwriter Tim Gane messing around with 70 tiny drum loops. It’s generally poppier than their previous Krautrock influenced albums – ‘Self-portrait With “Electric Brain”’, ‘Daisy Click Clack’ are particularly immediate.

    Some songs follow the ‘lab blueprint faithfully, like ‘Neon Beanbag’ and ‘Fractal Dream Of A Thing’. Others branch out altogether, like ‘Nous Vous Demandon Pardon’, with its pace and squelchy, dancefloor friendly bassline.

    But French lounge is the persistent influence, helped along by string and brass arrangements from Sean O’Hagan. These provide fresh layers to the ‘lab sound, and the record’s highlights, including the title track, for example, and ‘Cellulose Sunshine’, with euphoric piano, strings and singing in the round), while ‘Vortical Phonotheque’’s bassline and building keyboard motif recalls Air in its blessed out loveliness.

    (Remastered and Expanded with a second disc of rare & live tracks)

    The recording of Young Team was fucked up. There were quite a lot of sketches going on. I think the whole of the first LP is angry. It was the mood of the whole thing – there was a lot of anger about.

    Martin Bulloch

    Reissuing the brooding debut from legendary Scottish post-rock pioneers Mogwai may seem redundant to their obsessive collector fanbase, but there are treats within the second disc for devotees and newcomers alike.

    ‘Mogwai Young Team’ itself is considered to be one of the more influential instrumental rock albums of the 1990s, despite the fact that the band themselves have continually downplayed its acclaim.

    Documenting the band at their most violent and visceral, it is a stark example of the power of dynamics with rock instruments, but shot through with moments of darkness and quiet that are chilling rather than soothing.

    The second disc contains several live versions of songs from the album, as well as a rare cover of the Spacemen 3 song ‘Honey’.
