Re: [fearnwhiskey] reissues out this month
- For those of us who completely forgot about Thin White Rope (and lost
our copies of their albums to ex-girlfriends <g>), here's a description
of the albums, plus some other reissues from the Midheaven mailer. Looks
like a good time for 1980s reissues. Did "In The Spanish Cave" come out
in 1998 or is that a typo?:
THIN WHITE ROPE "Exploring the Axis" (Frontier)
The 1985 debut album from Davis, California roots rock and Paisley
Underground heroes THIN WHITE ROPE. An edgy mix of raw, angular riffs,
Southern twang, and icy psychedelia, delivered with vocalist GUY KYSER's
harsh, tightly-coiled vocals and unsettling lyrics.
THIN WHITE ROPE "Moonhead" (Frontier)
The 1987 sophomore album from Northern California rockers THIN WHITE
ROPE. An unrelenting, grim and harrowing take on American roots
rock'n'roll, that includes the faves "Crawl Piss Freeze" and "If Those Tears."
THIN WHITE ROPE "In The Spanish Cave" (Frontier)
The 1998 In The Spanish Cave album from Davis, California's favorite
sons. A continuation of the dark and gritty rock of their previous
releases, but with an increased sense of humor and more oblique lyrical
wordplay. Includes the killers "Red Sun" and "It's OK."
BUTTHOLE SURFERS "s/t & Live PCPPEP" (Latino Bugger Veil)
A first-time-on-CD reissue of the BUTTHOLE SURFERS' first two EPs.
Includes all seven tweaked songs from the band's eponymous debut, the
seven songs from their follow-up live record, and four unreleased
bonus tracks-, "Gary Floyd" and "Matchstick" (a two-track encore left
off of Live PCPPEP), the song "Sinister Crayon" (which was recorded
for the first EP but not mixed until 2002), and an early demo version
of "Something." Packaged in a digipak with reproductions of the original artwork.
CARGO CULT "Strange Men Bearing Fruit" (Touch And Go)
A reissue of the sole album from this Texas-based sound monster
comprised of JAMES BONNEY, DON DAVIS, DUANE DENISON (JESUS LIZARD,
TOMAHAWK), and RANDY "BISCUIT" TURNER (BIG BOYS). A twelve-track
jam-blower of punk, soul, jazz, art, ambient and raucous sounds, played
with heart, emotion, energy and heat.
LAST "L.A. Explosion" (Bomp)
A reissue of the debut album from early Los Angeles punkers the
LAST. Originally released by Bomp in 1981, L.A. Explosion is a burning
fusion of punk, surf, and 1960s-style garage, delivered with rockin'
rhythms and memorable melodies. Remastered from the original master
tapes, and boosted with bonus tracks, printed lyrics, new liner notes,
and band photos.
NO TREND "Tritonian Nash-Vegas" (Touch And Go)
A reissue of the 1986 Tritonian Nash-Vegas album from sarcastic
Baltimore noise-rockers NO TREND. Eleven tracks of noise-rock, lounge,
funk, country and more.
NEGATIVE APPROACH "Tied Down" (Touch And Go)
A reissue of the groundbreaking and hella influential 1983 Tied Down
album from 1980s Midwestern hardcore behemoths NEGATIVE APPROACH. Ten
practically peerless tracks of mean, violent and explosive punk rock,
featuring the hoarse, wailing vocals of BRANNON, who later went on to
front the LAUGHING HYENAS.
THUNDERTRAIN "Teenage Suicide" (Gulcher) CD
A collection of high-energy rock'n'roll from this killer Boston
five-piece recorded between 1974 and 1979. A roaring blend of rebel rock
rawness, ripped with metal, punk and glam flavors, remastered from the
original tapes, and packaged with a 24-page booklet featuring rare
photos and the band's story as told by all five members to EDDIE FLOWERS.
F.U.S "Kill For Christ" (Taang)
A reissue of the amazing 1982 Kill For Christ album by one of the
finest hardcore bands to ever come out of Boston. Includes all the
tracks from the original release, along with the band's songs from
the This Is Boston Not LA and Unsafe At Any Speed compilations, as
well as the group's first demo recordings. Nineteen tracks in all.
Packaged with the original PUSHEAD artwork.
RUTS "In A Rut" (Taang)
A reissue of the classic In A Rut album from this legendary
British second-wave band whose versatile blend of punk, reggae and
politics went on to influence an entire generation of musicians.
Includes the cuts from the original album, along with early demos, and
alternate versions of some of the band's most classic material.

"Anniversary editions" might entail? "I'm still..."
is one of my absolute favourite records ever, but it's
also a rare (?) case of a record that might actually
be as well served in reissue by the deletion of a
track than the addition of any dubious bonus material;
the schmaltzy version of "Pretty woman" herein always
struck me as a particularly odd way to mar an
otherwise virtually flawless LP.

>From ICE. Looks like a strong month; I bet there's something of interest for everyonereading this list.
Tammy Faye Starlite & the Angels of Mercy Used Country Female (Diesel Only)
ABBA On and On (Polydor/Universal Special Products)
i knew there'll be something for me : - )
I simply adore TFS & ABBA. Especialy if both cds are in charger and play random songs from
both artists. Perfect for throw up party : - )
O.k. just joking (or i'm not joking). Glitterhouse will release new Friends of Dean
Martinez & Woven Hand in February after amazing album by Timesbold. Here are some
TIMESBOLD - Timesbold
The closest reference points are probably Palace or Songs:Ohia, due in no
small part to the gorgeous vocals. Cracking and emotive, full and rich. But
unlike those bands' purposeful minimalism and spare instrumentation,
Timesbold don't shy away from introducing pianos, synthesisers, strange
production techniques and lush vocal harmonies. Also, unlike their
indie/country/folkie peers, they seem more interested in production,
crafting spacious and epic soundscapes, replete with soaring strings and
creepy minor key washes. Think Jason Molina, Will Oldham or Neil Young
singing for the Flaming Lips or Mercury Rev, but with a more isolated and
bleak country vibe: crackling campfires, broken hearts, wintery chills,
bitter loneliness. Got it?
FRIENDS OF DEAN MARTINEZ - Under The Waves
The album everybody is desperately waiting for. Bill Elm and his mates took
as much time as they needed to complete the follow up to the successful
"Wichita Linemen" release of 2001. Not just another gem of
desert-soundscapes, this new album goes far beyond the musical landscapes
the Friends Of Dean Martinez have explored up til now.
WOVEN HAND - Blush Music
16 Horsepower leader David Eugene Edwards widens his musical horizon and
brings us an album that merges the dry character of Woven Hand's
self-titled debut with atmospheric, trance-like soundscapes. The basic
tracks have been composed by Edwards for the recent performance of the
highly acclaimed Brussel-based ballett "Ultimavez", who will tour the world
with this program from the beginning of 2003 on. The score for their last
program was written by David Byrne..
+ Munich records will release Anders Parker (of Varnaline) album. It's really good one.
John Guilt - The mirrors and uncle Sam (February 11.)
Dayna Kurtz - Postcards from downtown (March), then Johnny Dowd - Wire flowers (limited
edition of 5000 copies). Wire flowers is session recorded before Wrong side of Memphis.
"In the winter of 1996, i retreated into small room to write and record songs on my
four-track. Many of those recordings found a home on my first album, "Wrong side of
Memphis." The rest are here. Different versions of some of these songs are on "Pictures
from Life's Other Side" and "The Pawnbroker's Wife" - but what you'll find here are the
original bad seeds." Johnny Dowd
Future farmer just released Virgil Shaw - Still falling.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !
All the best

- Good question. Are there any unreleased tracks worth hearing? Willie
Mitchell was pretty meticulous producing Green; I wonder if they had much
time to cut extra material.

live show with all that Doug and Stu you've ever sked for playing, uh, the
hits they they made famous! They're website says they hadn't intended to
put out a CD, but, you know--th demand was overwhelming. Some guy
after a show said "hey, is there a CD?"
Think of them as a second-level CCR tribute band?
On the other hand, there are so many band slike this they could form
doble bills with. Like tthe one with two guys from brussels who once
found a jont left on a table by Bernie Leadon and are nowt The Flying
Burrito Brothers! (not to speak of the band "Burrito Deluxe" which only
half claims to be THOSE guys...)
