LISTEN TO: The Best Of May 2012

So a new monthly feature begins, where at the end of every month I compile a playlist featuring some of the best music released during that particular month. May 2012 saw new album releases from The Cribs, Gaz Coombes, Damon Albarn, Richard Hawley, Public Image Ltd and Garbage, a great EP from Doyle And The Fourfathers, as well as singles from Paul Weller (from which the excellent B side 'We Got A Lot' is taken), Sylver Tongue and Liars...





VIDEO: Tom Williams And The Boat - Too Young

Tom Williams And the Boat are releasing the excellent 'Too Young' as the next single from their second album 'Teenage Blood'. You can read a review of the album HERE and buy it from the band's website HERE.


Tom from the band posted on their website: "The video was a slog to say the least... I traced stills (cheating a bit) taken by the wonderful Anthony Jarman, and the ever patient Sarah Maycock who patiently helped me scan everyone of the buggers in... I'm really happy with it, it takes a while for you to get your eye in and see what the eff is going on but once you catch a couple of things syncing up it looks great and most importantly, I've never seen anything that looks like THIS (for better OR worse haha) so that's always a good sign! So while by blisters on my drawing hand heal, we're also practising furiously for our UK tour next week, and you can get tickets HERE and thank you so much everyone that pre-ordered tickets and made this tour happen, we've got loads of special stuff up our sleeves for you, so these will be very special shows indeed! Make sure you check out who is supporting in your city, all local supports, on the tour page (HERE) and come down early to support them too!"



VIDEO: The Beach Boys - Live at QVC - 16/05/2012


(SOURCE - Popmatters.com)


On the 46th anniversary of the release of “Pet Sounds,” the Beach Boys played QVC. They came to the sprawling 84-acre West Chester campus of the home shopping channel to hawk “That’s Why God Made the Radio,” their new album due to be released June 5.


This version of the aging, archetypal California harmony-singing, 1960s surf-rock group includes three original members — songwriting giant Brian Wilson, 69; vocalist Mike Love, 71, his cousin; and guitarist Al Jardine, 69, his high school classmate. All were on board in Hawthorne, Calif., when the group’s first single, “Surfin,’” was released in October 1961.


At QVC, the three originals were joined by two tried-and-true cohorts. Singer Bruce Johnston, 69, first played in the band in 1965, replacing Glen Campbell, who had taken the place of Brian Wilson when he withdrew from touring to concentrate on creating the yearning, beautifully arranged masterwork that is “Pet Sounds.” And guitarist David Marks, 63, grew up across the street from the Wilsons in Hawthorne and was already in the band as a 13-year-old when they signed with Capitol Records on July 16, 1962.


Love and Johnston have toured together as the Beach Boys regularly. But not since 1996 have they played with Wilson, the troubled pianist, bass player and singer whose name has the word “genius” attached to it more frequently than any other in pop music. Wilson, who sat at a keyboard to the left of the stage at QVC and came alive to sing a sumptuous version of “God Only Knows,” has seen his own career revive in recent years with the aid of a loving backup band who worship at the godhead of sophisticated orchestral pop; many of its members are in the superb 10-piece ensemble on this tour.


For the reunion tour to happen, multiple hatchets had to be buried. The band had started out making carefree, quintessentially optimistic American music (“Catch a Wave,” “Little Deuce Coupe” “Fun, Fun, Fun”) and then turned dark and inward-looking as Brian experimented in the mid-’60s with the psychedelic sounds in his head, first on “Pet Sounds,” released in May 1966, and then on its unreleased follow-up, “Smile,” which Brian then called a “teenage symphony to God.”


The band was mired in many lawsuits, with the Love and Wilson camps divided over ownership of the songs as well as the use of the band’s name.


Despite that, Jardine says, he was always confident the group would get back together. “Last year I started trumpeting, playing my Gabriel horn,” he says. “Because the fans really wanted it. They were really hurting. My partners didn’t like me talking about it. Mike and Brian had to make peace with one another. All of us had to give something back.”


At QVC, the group played big hits (“Surfin’ Safari,” “California Girls”), with the thinning voices of the originals augmented, and sometimes overwhelmed, by their skilled backup harmonizers. On tour, the group has been playing 40-song sets that dig deep into its catalog, from obscurities like “All This Is That,” a song about transcendental meditation, to “Add Some Music to Your Day,” which the group sings a cappella while gathered around Wilson’s piano “like we did when we started out,” says Jardine.


“It’s mostly for the fans,” Jardine says. “I mean, there’s a lot of money involved, don’t get me wrong. Everybody’s making oodles of money. But the fans got left way behind. Nobody wants to see the guys doing their own careers when we could be together. We literally had to make it happen. It was very delicate negotiations to get it done, and we did it. I’m proud of us.”


On stage at QVC’s studio theater, where employees of the cable channel swayed and clapped along on cue, Wilson seems largely in his own world, except when blurting out answers like “It was a creative explosion!” when prompted by Gracie to talk about his early ‘60s songwriting achievements.


As the show goes on, the rest of the Beach Boys praise Wilson and make small talk as the host calls out sales figures. Meanwhile, the band plays the brilliantly constructed pop songs that Wilson wrote, though he appears largely uninvolved while fingering his keyboard parts.



“We’re like first-chair musicians in a symphony, because we’re not so shabby ourselves,” says Johnston, the only actual surfer in the core band. “But without him, what would we be?” Wilson has a way of “making difficult harmonies and chord progressions sound very seamless. It’s Brian’s way of voicing things, where we sing in the arrangements. You can’t copy the Beach Boys.”


The new single has passages of that old magic, along with awkward stretches that land with a thud. Johnston says that the album, produced by Joe Thomas, pieces together Wilson’s melodies with Love’s lyrics. “Brian had a lot of good fragments lying around. It was like putting a puzzle back together.”


Jardine calls the album “a nice little piece of work. … It’s got that ‘Pet Sounds’ vibe to it. There are a couple of happy tunes in there. But it’s pretty moody. Brian is a melancholy soul. He just hears things we don’t hear. It really just pours out of his soul.”


Back in the ‘60s, Jardine, who calls himself “the square of the group,” says that “LSD really expanded Brian’s music awareness. That’s a very quick ride, but the price you pay for it is very high. It wasn’t all fun and games. It changed Brian’s life forever.”


But Jardine says that music remains his old schoolmate’s lifeblood. “When he sits down at the keys, then he’s connected. Because he lives through music, and through the keyboard. It’s like his central nervous system. I don’t feel anything near that when I play the guitar.”



As the show winds down, Gracie says 8,500 CDs have been ordered (later, the tally will top 19,000 — impressive, but no match for the record 43,000 that Barry Manilow moved in an hour), and asks each band member to send a message to his fans. Johnston wishes everyone good health, “so you can come see the Beach Boys.” Love cutely adds, “And wouldn’t it be nice if you do?”


It’s Wilson’s turn, and he goes slightly off-topic. “I hope you like ‘Good Vibrations,’ because it’s our masterpiece,” he proclaims. True enough, but it’s not on the set list.


“We’ll do that one next time,” Love says, as the band starts “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” instead. The lovingly harmonized lyrics of impossible longing speak to Beach Boys fans who’ve hoped for this reunion for years: “Maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray, it might come true.”


On this night at QVC, it has. And when it’s over, four Beach Boys accept handshakes and congratulations on stage, while Brian Wilson is quickly escorted out of view.



SONG FOR TODAY: Sublime - 'April 29, 1992 (Miami)'

A band who I briefly became obsessed with in about 2007, during my close-minded punk and ska phase. Singer Brad Nowell died of a heroin overdose shortly before the release of what many believe to be the band's definitive album. "'April 29, 1992 (Miami)' is a song written by American ska punk band Sublime in 1996 from their eponymous album Sublime. The song title refers to the date of the Los Angeles riots of 1992, of which news spread throughout the United States following the acquittal of four police officers accused in the videotaped beating of Rodney King. The official title of the song references the date April 29, 1992, however the lyric is sung as, "April 26, 1992." It has been said this was a mistake, but the take was strong enough the band kept it. When major cities began being referred to on the topic of anti-establishment riots, there is a background voice screaming a few smaller cities, the first being Boise, Idaho. The band often spoke about how much they enjoyed being in Boise and that they'd participated in a couple rioting acts in the small city. Theories have developed about the true integrity of the song's lyrics. Many believe that the acts of crime including arson, robbery and vandalism referred to in the lyrics were actually perpetrated by some of the Sublime band members during the 1992 LA riots. However, certain details and locations were withheld in order to protect them from any possible prosecution..."



PREVIEW: Ian McCulloch - Pro Patria Mori

Ian McCulloch, lead singer with Echo And The Bunnymen, has released his fourth solo album 'Pro Patria Mori'. The album was funded by fans via PledgeMusic. Talking about the new record McCulloch commented: “It’s big in places and then it’s stripped down in others. It’s a direction I’ve been wanting to go with my solo stuff for a long time.” The new album is McCulloch's first solo album in nearly a decade and his first material since Echo And The Bunnymen's most recent album 'The Fountain', released in 2009.
 "Suffice to say, I’m thrilled about it all again. I just want to say that I can’t wait for the people – you people – to hear these songs and share your feelings about (or Heavens to Murgatroyed, your lack of), and thoughts on them. Because you already know what I think…. “Different Trees”, “Pro Patria Mori” and “Raindrops On The Sun” are the equi-greatest Holy Trinity of songs ever written.

Sincere thanks and love for your love and belief.

Ian McCulloch XXX"

A review of 'Pro Patria Mori' will appear on this site soon, but in the meantime preview Mac's new album by listening to a few tracks uploaded to YouTube...



LISTEN TO: Funeral Suits - Lily Of the Valley


The debut album from Ireland's Funeral Suits is due for release on June 1st 2012 in their home country and on June 4th elsewhere. You can stream the album in full by scrolling down this page. A review will follow over the coming week. 


"Funeral Suits are a four-piece from Ireland consisting of Brian James, Mik McKeogh, Greg McCarthy and Dar Grant. The music they make is expansive without being overblown, heavy without being menacing and all the more thrilling for its restraint.


A shared love of epic, distorted guitars, blistering harmonius pop, art rock and 
electronica led to the band spending the best part of two years holed up in a disused office space in deepest North County Dublin, writing, rehearsing and at times venturing out to play as special guests for Franz Ferdinand, Passion Pit, The Maccabees, Local Natives amongst others.


Funeral Suits have recorded their debut album 'Lily of the Valley' with acclaimed producer Stephen Street (Blur, The Smiths) which is due for release on Model Citizen records on June 1st in Ireland and June 4th everywhere else."

Jeff Buckley remembered - 15 years ago today

Some time in the mid nineties I first heard Jeff Buckley's brilliant album 'Grace' during a car journey with my friends Jon and Wilf Hanson. I was impressed. A few years later and one day after school I was at my Nan and Grandad's house, searching through the Teletext pages of Channel 4 to catch up on the day's music news. The Teletext music news service was called Planet Sound (which lives on in the form of a Facebook group) and it was there that I was saddened to hear that this wonderful, talented young artist had died whilst swimming in the Mississippi River.


That very day was now exactly 15 years ago. As we remember this excellent musician and celebrate his work, here is a Spotify playlist featuring Buckley's complete recorded output. Below it are YouTube videos of some of his finest moments. Further down this page is also a Wikipedia entry on Buckley's life. Gone but never forgotten.





Jeffrey Scott "Jeff" Buckley (November 17, 1966 – May 29, 1997), raised as Scotty Moorhead, was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. He was the son of Tim Buckley, also a musician. After a decade as a guitarist-for-hire in Los Angeles, Buckley amassed a following in the early 1990s by playing cover songs at venues in Manhattan's East Village, such as Sin-é, gradually focusing more on his own material. After rebuffing much interest from record labels and his father's manager Herb Cohen, he signed with Columbia, recruited a band, and recorded what would be his only studio album, Grace.


Jeff BuckleyOver the following two years, the band toured widely to promote the album, including concerts in the U.S., Europe, Japan and Australia. In 1996, they stopped touring and made sporadic attempts to record his second album in New York with Tom Verlaine as producer. In 1997, Buckley moved to Memphis, Tennessee, to resume work on the album, to be titled My Sweetheart the Drunk, recording many four-track demos while also playing weekly solo shows at a local venue. While awaiting the arrival of his band from New York, he drowned during a spontaneous evening swim — fully clothed — in the Wolf River, when he was caught in the wake of a passing boat. His body was found on June 4, 1997.



Since his death, there have been many posthumous releases of his material, including a collection of four-track demos and studio recordings for his unfinished second album My Sweetheart the Drunk and expansions of debut album Grace and his Live at Sin-é EP. Chart success also came posthumously; with Leonard Cohen's song, "Hallelujah" he attained his first #1 on Billboard's Hot Digital Songs in March 2008 and reached #2 in the UK Singles Chart in Christmas 2008. Buckley and his work remain popular and are regularly featured in 'greatest' lists in the music press.

MY COMPILATIONS: The Sound of 1998 - LISTEN TO


Listen to my epic compilation 'The Sound Of 1998' by scrolling down the page and clicking on the Mixcloud players. For Spotify users there is an edited version of the compilation, along with a selection of extra tracks from 1998....

One night in 1998, and i had picked up the latest copy of the NME: "British music going up in flames" read the front page of an issue addressing the UK's hangover after the massive Britpop binge we had been enjoying. This was an exaggeration. But in many ways 1998 was the end of an era. Well part of an era anyway. 


There was a notable shift towards a darker, and sometimes rather sombre sound, as the post-Britpop era had begun. This was the year i began religiously listening to The Evening Session, enabling a transformation from Britpop kid to Indie teenager. And although a lot of great new bands tipped for big things never really took off commercially, there was planty of great music to be found. Some wanted to attempt to rejuvenate Britpop, others decided to move on from it and not let it limit their musical horizons, and others went exploring new sounds.

But unlike 1997, 1998 only had a few classic albums to speak of, in the shape of Mansun's bewildering 'Six' (which sounded mental back in 1998, and now sounds insanely great) and the sorely underrated 'Kingsize' from the Boo Radleys, an album i regard as their finest and possibly the last great Britpop album. And while that particular album flopped commercially and broke the band up, at least the charts still had plenty of proper music to speak of, since the decline of the mainstream had only just slowly begun, and although a lot of singles and albums should have got higher, at least we still lived in an age where you would hear good new music on an average radio station, unlike the appalling state of affairs in 2010.

Anyway here it is, 1998: a year that is and has remained musically close to my heart
