Most people use their real name. Select Gender? Even the guitar is ringing! Can we please listen to something I might like? C: Dulli does sound like Bono when he tries to hit those trailing Bjorknotes.
D: Is that her voice in the background? This is ghastly! Okay, maybe three drinks. Like later Marianne Faithful, actually. They also had a violin. Like a particularly smart Deep Purple, subbing out the ponderousness for some art-punk new-beat spastics, splatter and stutter. Do you need a lyric sheet to make sense of it? Yes you do. D: Hmph. I will be the judge of that! C: 10 songs, 10 minutes, each song almost exactly one minute.
Good call D: These guys sound a little too smug to me. C: I like conceptual limits, generally. It necessitates invention and problem solving, keep you from getting too set in your ways.
Standard John Cage theory, right? Brian Eno… D: These guys should work with Eno! Perhaps it can be arranged. D: I used to listen to Primus.
That was the worst. C: [cracking himself up] The wurst, you mean, ha ah ha! This sounds great! D: We have not seen a woman here in sometime. C: But your presence here has been foretold.
C: Sorry… So, you really like this, E? I admire his integrity. I think not. C: Er… I believe no one should imitate Zappa. Well not like this, at least. D: I do like Hello that are circus-y. E: This is great.
C: Hmm. Okay, maybe if I was D: This is totally late Residents and is making me want to get very high right now. I could get a lot of cleaning done to this. Ropeadope E: Fela? Tony Allen? This is cool, of course. D: Is this from Nigeria? If I had to DJ a wedding, I would definitely play this. You can meringue to it. E: [dancing] More like 20! D: [dancing with eyes closed] Who cares, this is phenomenal! It makes me want to put my ass into it!
C: [to tape recorder] He said he was a dancing fellow, and now he is proving it. E: Hey, did you guys hear that Rick James died today? C: A lot of people owe him big time. D: Especially those guys who had girlfriends who became superfreaks!!! D: Fudgetunnel? C: Is it Godflesh? C: Awesome dark sludge from some creepy condemned industry at the edge of town. E: [smiling] Yes, exactly. E: Hey D, what are you drinking in that coffee cup? Black turned towith lizard eyes. But subtle and beautiful, somehow.
This is a high point of human culture. C: Yeah kind of, right? D: I used to go see a lot of bands like this. Then I stopped. C: You have to see it in a small space where the sound of Hello - Leah-Peah / Cheezface - Leah-Peah + Cheezface (Cassette) overwhelming and crushing and inescapable and you are just being confronted with it.
Second album in one year. But this is actually hard on the audience! D: [grimacing] I am not sure if I like this much. But: interesting nuts.
D: I remember them now! They were interviewed in Arthur, Hello. Brother and sister. But I thought they were blues-rocking New York people? What is all this synthesizer-ragtime stuff?!? I dig it. D: [irritated] I do not have time for concepts! Pepper, Popeye. D: This is too wacky and too wordy. I think these guys may be too smart for their own good.
C: A singles-only edit of this album would be nice for the Short Attention Spanners out there…. They keep the demons at bay. D: Yes! Big super-blaster balls-nailed-to-the-wall heavy power rock from a space cannon! C: Amazing, visionary wizardstuff. Album-of-the-year contender. D: I am going to make a pilgrimage to this Blue Cathedral. C: Which is right next door to the Acid Mothers Temple, no doubt. Mister Greg Cartwright! Long may he reign.
I doff my beer in his general direction. Heartfelt thrashing songs with a zest for life! C: [nodding head] The is one of those records that gives garage rock a good name. D: I am getting old. But I will get out my leather jacket for these guys. And stitch their name on it, as is my duty. And the Hives are taking them on the tour, so there you go. D: Giving them that big Swedish stamp of approval! A girl band… D: They have the big Spector beat.
It cannot be! I am 9 years old again… C: Yeah. It has a Hello - Leah-Peah / Cheezface - Leah-Peah + Cheezface (Cassette) rhythm and all these harmonies… D: [listening] It has a sea chanty quality. Ah, what goes on in the Swedish woods… C: If there had been an ecstasy scene in the The Muppets Movie this is what it would have sounded like, and I mean that with all respect and seriousness. Yep, this is ad agency music. C: Totally! I see the car commercial now.
D: BMW, maybe. D: [listening] Eh. C: Well, at least this song has more energy… D: [thinking deeply] I must say, I always preferred Portishead.
C: The texture of trip-hop stuff is just…worn out. Do we need another record of this stuff? Even Beth Gibbons has moved on. D: That album she did last year was the most… C: Yes! Arthur readers, just buy that instead. I weep openly when I listen to that record. But here… D: I yawn openly. Hmm… D: Gas Giant are gaseous. Hello, Monster Magnet? But Clutch and Orange Goblin and Nebula are, and a ton of other longhaired stoner rock lifers.
High On Fire march on like warrior kings of peace! Everything they do smokes. D: You make yourself laugh. Solid riffage, a firm construction. And adult contemporary with lyrics by Bad Wizard. D: [distracted, gazing longingly at record sleeve] I really like this centerfold. Music for driving a bulldozer down Main Street to. Heavy is as heavy does…. Erotic imagery. Fortunately I am prepared to solider on alone. For some reason I am reminded of Killdozer.
Forget the Dead, this is the real skullfuckery. The guitars are propulsing, broken hip priest Mark E. Smith sounds wonderfully surly and declamatory, almost drifting into dreamtalk sometimes, the other cats in the band are singing some refrains and choruses and this is very important: you can dance to almost every song. You people know what I mean. Black Dice Creature Comforts DFA Records C: Never really dug these guys and their electro-spazz-randomonica-epic trip before for some reason, although it sounded good in theory.
This, though, I dig. I am a digger. People who dig early Tangerine Dream, and I mean very Hello - Leah-Peah / Cheezface - Leah-Peah + Cheezface (Cassette), will dig this. Also some of the more out-there Popul Vuh stuff. Kinda meditative, actually… [To D, who has re-appeared] So, everything work out okay? D: Yes, Hello - Leah-Peah / Cheezface - Leah-Peah + Cheezface (Cassette). Big and grand and emotional and beautiful.
