So the fuck what? It just needs a half-hour of your time. And when it does… bliss. The singles you should know, and each rumbles into life with all the subtlety of getting Capricorn (15) - Liverpool Hello (Vinyl) by a tractor. The other seven tracks? Individual analysis is pointless; listening to them in this sequence, comparable to the best sex ever.
How many out of five? That many. Do the right thing — stamp your feet and hold on to your balls until you get to wrap your ears around You're A Woman, I'm A Machine. Drowned In Sound. It saw Echo And The Bunnymen at the height of their commercial powers, with the album dropping the band's biggest hit 'The Cutter' onto a baying public.
But it also saw the band in its least commercial mind-set, producing a dark, experimental and purposely difficult album. Indeed, the recording of 'Porcupine' was famously marred by in-fighting and looming threats of a band split. It must have been a bittersweet time to have been one of the Bunnymen. That said, however, 'Porcupine' is a hugely powerful work that still stands as the peak of Echo And The Bunnymen's career. The experimental leanings of this record make it irresistible.
The production is sent into expansive overdrive here, with every track featuring layers and layers of sound. It feels like the mixing desk must have been maxed out in almost every song, with the thickness of the sound hiding a treasure box of little details that don't reveal themselves immediately.
And whilst the production and effects-driven guitar crafts are endlessly exciting, the song writing is also top notch. The album walks a fine line between its catchy cuts and its sinister gothic pieces. Although, it's when these two elements are combined that the band creates the albums true classics. Likewise, the album highlight 'Clay' is a towering pop song, but taken very much to the dark side by the discordant, squalling guitars that loom over everything like a giant dead tree.
It's like the song was written to be a pretty track, and then the decision was made to purposely 'fuck it up'. Whatever, it's a brilliant track and one of the best in the Bunnymen's cannon. Other highlights abound with the ultra-catchy 'Heads Will Roll', which has a mosh-inducing, radio-friendly chorus and a fantastic, spiralling set of eastern guitar riffs. Not to mention an awesome middle-eight featuring echoey ragas and Capricorn (15) - Liverpool Hello (Vinyl) violins. It's confusing, euphoric and very, very loud.
There isn't much in the way of negative things to say about this record. It's obviously not for everyone, as its darkness is overwhelming, much like Joy Division's 'Closer', and it takes a certain mood in order to be enjoyed.
But there aren't really any weak tracks although the new wave pop of the closing track 'In Bluer Skies' dips close, but is saved by its giant, catchy feedback riff and the album, when listened to with concentration on a good pair of headphones, offers a level of atmospheric audio immersion of a very rare quality, and one that grants 'Porcupine' the status of a stone cold classic.
Although in retrospect, the Tourists are seen almost entirely as the band Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox were in before they formed Eurythmics, the group was in fact more of a showcase for singer, guitarist, and primary songwriter Peet Coombes, who had first worked with Stewart in the folk rock band Longdancer, which was on Elton John's Rocket Records label. They moved to London, where they met Stewart's girlfriend Lennox, who had dropped out of a course at the Capricorn (15) - Liverpool Hello (Vinyl) Academy of Music to pursue her ambitions in pop music, on vocals and occasional keyboards.
The new trio dubbed themselves Catch and released one single, "Black Blood," on the Logo label in Adding bassist Eddie Chin and drummer Jim Toomey, the group re-christened themselves the Tourists and released their first album, The Tourists, in The Tourists were a typical British post-punk power-pop group by the evidence of their debut album.
Chiming guitars, quickstep martial beats sometimes borrowing from Bo Diddley or the Ronettesand the odd rude or belligerent remark "Nothing means nothing to me," snarled in the first single, "Blind Among the Flowers" placed them in the era of punk hangover when suddenly everybody wanted to sound like the Who, circa Songwriter and co-lead singer Peet Coombes had a pinched nasal tenor that fit the slightly sour sentiments of songs like "Another English Day" and "Don't Get Left Behind," but, already, the Tourists' secret weapon was Annie Lennox, who tended to overpower Coombes on their duets and helped make the overtly pop "The Loneliest Man in the World" the group's first Top 40 hit.
Of the two Sugar LPs, the first is the unequivocal go-to listen. What began as a selection of 30 possible tracks was winnowed down during the production process to a lean ten-title CD — all killer, no filler — that showcases a well-rehearsed and simpatico ensemble burning at its very brightest.
Sure, there are points where the songs get locked into repetitious cycles, where sections feel like they are alternating ad infinitum. For such a short-lived band, Sugar never wasted a moment on record. That line of thought only ends in hypotheticals, though.
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club made an impressive debut intaking both America and England by surprise while alternative metal ruled the charts. More gutsy, more aggressive, and more dynamic than B. They're fearless and this release is all swagger, emotive, and cool. There's more character to songs themselves and BRMC appears a touch more confident. From Capricorn (15) - Liverpool Hello (Vinyl) acoustic ballad "And Capricorn (15) - Liverpool Hello (Vinyl) Aching" to the post-punk fire of "U.
