The Slow Crack. Steve Kilbey. 1987 RedEye Records.
I’ve been revisiting the back catalogue of SK of late, in response to listening to the stella new Church album, ‘Man, Woman, Life, Death, Infinity’. This album contains some brilliant songs , my favourite (which could have been a Heyday track) is ‘ Something that Means Something’. Recorded in his home studio in Sydney, featuring the Ensoniq (ESQ-1) keyboard, one of the first sequence capable keyboards for the masses. SK certainly mastered it’s possibilities.
A remix/remaster of this collection of songs would be a good thing.
Den Haan - Night Shift.
Thanks to🎉 @danceoftheclones. Calling all disco fans! Are you partial to a bit of Patrick Cowley? Like the synthetic soundscapes of Claudio Simonetti? Been digging those clips I posted, Then Den Haan are the band for YOU.
Den Haan produce some of the best electronic-disco-pop around at the moment. After a string of successful releases on cult European labels like Dissident, Optimo Music and Supersoul, today sees the of release their debut long player Gods From Outer Space on their own Courier Of Death label. The duo are quickly gaining a reputation as a hot live act, and some of their music has even been featured in Desperate Housewives, bizarrely enough.
#gazzo2017 . Number 42/44.
Pvris - all we know of heaven, all we need of hell.
I know i posted this last week, and live shit yesterday, but hell, it’s my end of year list right?
Let me start of by saying it’s not a bad record, it’s just to mediocre for my liking. They went for a uniform sound and trimmed around the edges. Sometimes it works (paramore, enter shikari, bmth) but this sounds the same all the way through. Hopefully they’ll rethink it with lp3.

The Stone Roses S/T (1989) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ So I've been challenged by @aekastar to share my favourite album. This really is a daunting affair as my choice changes and fluctuates on a day to day basis. Some of my all time favorites I've already posted and I didn't want to repost. So for today, it's going to be The Stone Roses debut. What else is there to say about this amazing record? It appeared from out of nowhere and has been transformative, not only for me, but for alternative music. The album just changed the rules. It showed that an indie band can jangle, rock and groove at the same time. It sounded thoroughly massive and ambitious which went against the grain of indie bands sounding small and precious. It's pretty hard to find another band who had as explosive a debut album as this. Perfectly formed on its release, it has stood the test of time for nearly 30 years and still continue to stun and delight me in equal measures. It's also my choice today because it was one of those records I recently recovered and I've been playing it again endlessly for the past two weeks. How many versions does a person need of this? Pictured here are the original US pressing (the one I just recovered) that contained Elephant Stone which the UK pressing didn't ; the Light in The Attic 2015 reissue in beautiful yellow vinyl remastered to 2 LPS; the US CD; the 10th anniversary 2CD set. There are a few other versions that I missed out on, and the DVD that I can't find at the moment. Seeing the live when they reunited 5 years ago was another highlight, reminding again how much I love this band and this record in particular. So excuse me now while I drown in the magnificence of I Am The Resurrection. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #thestoneroses#ihaveathingforvinyl
Conheci Michael Franks, graças a versão de "B'wana - He No Home" dos Carpenters, no LP - Passage, de 77. Acho que essa gravação foi uma das mais ousadas que Karen e Richard produziram! Fiquei tão encantado que logo fui pesquisar sobre o compositor daquela canção; Michael F. além de ser um compositor e cantor de primeira, é também um cara apaixonado pela música brasileira (da qual diz ser a trilha sonora de sua vida!), e a sua discografia inteira possui influencia nítida da bossa nova e do Jazz. Este disco em questão, gravado em 77, com arranjos e orquestra de Claus Ogerman, é uma verdadeira obra-prima. "The Lady Wants to Know" é talvez uma das mais lindas que já escutei na vida; "Daddy's just like Coltrane, Baby's just like Miles/The Lady's Just like heaven, when she smiles...''
E por falar em música brasileira/bossa nova, - Aqui neste álbum, o clássico "B'wana - He no home" e a maravilhosa "Down In Brazil", foram gravadas no Rio de janeiro, acompanhado pelos 'nossos': João Donato, Hélio Delmiro e João Palma, para dar aquela ''pegada'' especial. Além de "Antonio's Song/the Rainbow" dedicado ao maestro Tom Jobim. Coisa linda! 💘👍 -#MichaelFranks#SleepingGypsy#BossaNova#jazz#JoãoDonato#HélioDelmiro#JoaoPalma

Was lovely to see these guys in Texas last night. The set was fantastic and was great to chat with the guys after about the songs. I have a lot of love for Birdie. It's far better than the debut LP, Welcome, and shows Jake really finding his place outside of MOBO.-D
