Suicide

Suicide - Art Of The Album Edition

    By the Summer of 1969 the US hippie dream lay in tatters but the cultural influence exerted by New York City would echo loudly through the decades that followed and no louder than it did with the incendiary electronic NYC duo, Suicide, who came to notoriety nearly a decade later. If dismissive at first, the music press have gone through something of a dramatic U-turn in more recent years with many mainstream publications now regarding Suicide’s 1977 debut as a stone cold classic.

    It sits at #39 in Pitchfork’s Top 100 Albums Of The 1970s; it placed at #441 in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time; and reached #236 in NME’s The 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time.

    Four decades later, we are only just now counting the positive cost of their influence across genres such as techno, noise, electro clash, goth, synth pop, psych and industrial. However, a sense of their vital impact can be discerned from the number of cover versions of Suicide tracks there are delivered by the likes of Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen, Peaches and R.E.M. Elsewhere they have had been praised widely by Nick Cave, Jim Thirlwell and M.I.A. and count Jason Pierce (Spacemen 3/ Spiritualized), Lydia Lunch, Nik Void of Factory Floor and Savages as fans. This Art Of The Album edition of Suicide sees the record remastered and presented in its original form and packaging, with in-depth liner notes covering the context, craft, impact and legacy of the album.

    Cabbage have finally released their highly anticipated debut album, following on from a trio of EP's, released under the delightfully tactful 'Young, Dumb & Full Of...' (Rum, I assume.) 

    We start off with the thrashing garage rock of 'Preach To The Converted' with twanging distorted guitar and the sort of snarling vocals you could imagine being venemously spat from the edge of the stage before launching into the fuzzy off-kilter rock of Arms of Pleonexia, reminiscent of a younger Ty Segall swagging around the stage before a baying croud after one too many bottles of corner-shop white lightning. Things continue at this frenetic pace with 'Molotov Alcopop' providing a bit of nuanced rhythm before the gothic rock of 'Disinfect Us' suggests a more mature suite of influences, from the militant march and languid blues overtones of early White Stripes. 

    Further on, we get syncopated guitars over a meandering drum machine on the brilliantly swaying 'Pendurabo' and jangling hazy indie, topped with a curiously (but effectively) distorted vocal affectation over the top. 

    Brilliantly varied, but held together with a persistent narrative thread, 'Nihilistic Glamour Shots' lives up to the hype of the earlier 3 EP's, with a willingnes to experiment but a knowing nod to all of their numerous influences. 

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: Thrashing garage rock, thudding post-punk and jagged riffage all round, Cabbage manage to surpass their excellent musical form with a well-heeled and cleverly written debut.

    Gary Numan

    Savage (Songs From A Broken World)

      Savage: Songs From A Broken World’ is the 22nd studio album from Gary Numan. Released on BMG this an album with a narrative that’s set in an apocalyptic, post-global warming Earth in the not-too-distant future. There is no technology left and most of the planet has turned to a desolate desert wasteland. Food is scarce, water even more so and human kindness and decency are just a dim and distant memory. Western and Eastern cultures have merged, more because of the need to simply survive than any feelings of greater tolerance or understanding. It’s a harsh, savage environment, as are the survivors who still roam across it.

      The Waterboys

      Out Of All This Blue

        The Waterboys will release their brand-new studio double album Out Of All This Blue on September 8 2017; their first for BMG Records, with whom they recently signed.

        Produced by Mike Scott and recorded in Dublin and Tokyo , Out Of All This Blue will be available on Double CD and Double Vinyl, plus Deluxe Triple CD (including Bonus Tracks) and Deluxe Triple Vinyl (including Bonus Tracks) and Digital.

        Out Of All This Blue is The Waterboys most exploratory recording yet, comprising 23 songs with Mike Scott's trademark sharp lyrics set to pop music with echoes of classic R&B, country, soul and funk and underpinned by modern hiphop production values and rhythms. String & brass sections were arranged and conducted by Trey Pollard of The Spacebomb Collective. Mike Scott says of the record: "Out Of All This Blue is 2/3 love and romance, 1/3 stories and observations. I knew from the beginning I wanted to make a double album, and lucky for me - and I hope the listener - the songs just kept coming, and in pop colours."


        Cabbage’s Record Store Day release, a double vinyl compilation of their first 3 EPs entitled 'Young, Dumb & Full Of…’, was one of the days most in-demand releases, with all 1000 copies selling out in hours. 'The Extended Play of Cruelty' is the latest offering from the bro-punk outfit. The band recently signed to Infectious Music (Alt-J, Drenge, Albert Hammond Jr, Leftfield, DMA'S).
