Prefab Sprout

Prefab Sprout? Daft name, and aren't they adult contemporary-smooth-semi-sophisti-pop? Yes! and No. For starters, I've yet to give into the allure of The Blue Nile, a group I've dismissed for years, so please go easy on me (addressing myself here, mostly. I'm sure all you reading are cooler than me and know the group well). I must of given Prefab Sprout at least one half assed chance in the distant past and obviously wasn't hooked by their enchanting sound. Today I'm handing myself over to Prefab Sprout and am fully prepared to make lofty statements about them. They wrote two of the best pop songs I've ever heard. One being their self released debut single, and the other the opening song off their second LP.

They debuted in 1982 with their self-released single, "Lions In My Own Garden: Exit Someone" - songwriter Paddy McAloon wanted a song title where the first letters of the words spelled out "LIMOGES" (the French city where his former girlfriend was staying at the time).
see, isn't that nice? now listen to the song and see how many times you'll play it over and over again.

Faron Young, if i recall correctly, was written in response to people who listen to country-western in the north, or more generally in cities, as it isn't relevant. Later on Paddy McAloon (Prefab's singer/songwriter) rebuked this sentiment by saying that people listened to Country Western because it's honest music. Glad he wised up. oh, found the quote: “This shows you how stupid I am - it’s a song wondering why people like country & western music when they live in the industrial north. I thought, ‘Why do they listen to all these things about cowboys and farmers and grain?’ and then 20 years later, I suddenly think, ‘It’s because C&W deals with real emotions.’ Take that!” - NME, June 20, 1992

Able Tasmans

what the hell was going on in New Zealand throughout the late 70s and into the mid 90s? pop magic floating around on those islands. i recently discovered the Able Tasmans, who along with a bunch of other groups from that strange land, are blowing my fucking mind. everyone should probably listen to more Verlaines too, and Look Blue Go Purple!

for download is their song "Mary Tyler Moore" from their last album "Store in a Cool Place" (1995).

Martin Newell with bunny friend

interview with Martin by Richie Unterberger here
Cherry Red TV interviewed Martin Newell, seek it out!
Giles Smith (member of Cleaners From Venus) wrote a book called Lost In Music. I hear it's really great, maybe you can borrow my copy after I read it :)

1 1 5 6 4 8 2

Newell retraces the band's beginnings: "Lol Elliott and I became firm friends with much in common: psychedelic music, Beatles, Bonzos, Small Faces, XTC, Teardrop Explodes and Todd Rundgren. In November of 1980 we set to work in my cottage doing music on a hand-cranked, mud-cooled, reel-to-reel, sound-on-sound tape recorder. Lol played drums and banged and twanged things. I played guitar and we started doing these marvelous ersatz pop songs. The rule was two songs had to be written and recorded every Monday before my miserable girlfriend (at the time) got home from work and told us to stop. We both worked in a restaurant as part-timers. He was the cleaner and I was the washer-up. Round about March of 1981, we found we'd got about 40 songs, so we picked 18 of them and sent them to Sounds magazine, who said they were really good. We said anyone who wanted a copy had to send a blank tape or 50 pence (about a dollar). This tape was called Blow Away Your Troubles. It was in flawed mono with dropouts and hiss... but very good fun.
Lots of people sent in for the tape, so we kind of came into existence by default really," admits Newell. "At this point we had to think of a name. We called ourselves the Soft Humans for about a month before we became the Cleaners From Venus (we nearly chose the Brotherhood of Lizards and the Peach Wellingtons). We chose that name partly because we were 'cleaners,' partly because it rhymed and was silly (we'd hate to come on too serious), and the 'Venus' thing. Lol and I were brought up on sixties TV as kids and still had a Twilight Zone idea of aliens being green with special powers, etc. It's sort of a hangover from acid/deviant/comic book humor."

I owe thanks to the people who made this music available online previously on blogs and elsewhere floating about in the web.

Virginia Astley "Love's A Lonely Place To Be"

Virginia Astley recorded one of, if not the most, unique and beautiful albums of the 1980s. Don't be surprised if you've never heard of her. She's buried in obscurity, at least here in the States. Her earlier material made a splash in the indie charts over in England, and I think she's probably bigger in Japan.
I'm posting her first single, "Love's A Lonely Place To Be". I personally feel these are insightful and honest lyrics, and really sad! Detailing a dreary relationship, the lryics are matched with a pretty saccharine piece of music which has often been described as "Christmasy". If you're put off by her voice (I'm not), then do check out her album "From Gardens Where We Feel Secure," the album that I referred to in the first sentence; it's mostly instrumental. I'm certain till my death that I'll regard it as one of my favorites and play it constantly for my children.

Eyeless in Gaza "New Risen"

several weeks ago i dreamt that I found the 7" single for New Risen. Before I go any further I'd like to say that I had never seen this single, nor was i even sure that the song had been released as a single. I just liked the song and then had a strange dream. The next day I went to a record store and there it was in the recent arrivals! the only difference was that it was a 12" single. It was a little pricey, but after having that dream I couldn't pass it up.

you can find the mp3 here in a previous mix I made.
this video stands out for me as well, really odd!

Alan Licht Has Ruined Music For An Entire Generation

like Lester Bangs said of Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music, the Calvin Johnson Has Ruined Rock For An Entire Generation 7" can be used to clear up your head when you wake with a hangover (and "to prepare you for what's in store the rest of the day"). I woke up slightly hungover today, but didn't test this till much later in the day. Maybe it was the food or green tea that eased my agony, but hearing this certainly didn't hurt.

download - Side A Tone Poem For the Nikki Sixx Million / Side B Six Million Licks For Tone Lōc

Has the "Calvin" 7" gotten any comments? I cracked up when I saw the sleeve.

ALAN: Well, Calvin has not been reached for comment... I was always more of a Heather fan, anyway... Jon Fine came up to me accusing me of "stealing" the title from (Sub Pop's) Nils Berstein, who originally coined the phrase. When I pointed out that I credited "all songs" on the record to Nils, he confessed that he hadn't actually bought or even heard the record, just saw the cover. It's not that much of a "statement," just a t-shirt Nils gave me. I have a t-shirt that says "Wheelchair Sports" on it, I could have called it that too. By the way, there's a track on the new Free Kitten LP called "Alan Licht Has Ruined Music For An Entire Generation."
