venus in furs - the speed of pun 1990

a very interesting band that quietly existed from the early mid-eighties up to the nineties, hence the year this album came about. the album doesn't compare much to "megalomania" in  1989. in hindsight, like their previous albums it contains a various display of music(samples below available)... synth, new wave and sometimes experimental, is the easiest way to describe them. a couple more albums in 1996 and 1998 was released but beyond that i've no more information.

the housemartins - sheep 12" 1986

the housemartins, an indie guitar band comprised of many talented musicians such as paul heaton and norman cook whom carreer resurrection began at the split of the band in 1988, went on to form beats international and later the beautiful south. it wasn't until norman cook became this unusually successful phenom dance dj "fatboy slim" that his fame accelerated to the top 40's of the music mainstream. sheep though has a very different sound. in fact, i can't compare the housemartins to any act i know in the eighties or today. 'cept maybe the farmer's boys.... is stan from the tfb the same stan cullimore of the housemartins?? hmm...
i'v added a couple of tracks from the record for sampling purposes..

gavin friday - you, me and world war three promo cd5 1996

first single from the "shag tobacco" cd released in 1995. it has a real nice synth and harmonic drive to it, for those of you who missed it back in the days when house music and techno rave ruled the airwaves(i know some of you out there got hooked one way or another, huh.. now you remember right?) here's a second chance to refresh your memory. born fionán martin hanvey, he formed and fronted the virgin prunes in 1977 but called it quits to pursue a solo carreer in 1986. although someone might say this is a step down for gavin f, i actually think it's a musical upgrade for him.
cheers.

eat - shame 7" 1992

eat's been around since the late eighties dating back to their earliest single exclusively on fiction records. a weird name for a band but then again the music were not too far away from bands that came out in the early nineties brit scene such as power of dreams and world of twist. i am solely relying on what little information i've found about the band, since this is my only material by them.

shame...

on the road again...

super thirty-one - accelaration cd5 1993

another local los angeles band unknown to most of everyone, unless you were really digging the scene back in the early days when grunge was in its peak. these guys stayed true to their roots and influences. gloomy guitar feedbacks and dreamy melodies with an aggressive approach to shoegaze. deardarkhead and half string were just a few of the acts worth mentioning in the same category.
it's been very quiet this last couple of posts, sad to say i'm losing interest as well, anything from this day on will not be quaranteed. 'til next time bloggers.
