classix nouveaux - guilty 12" 1981

here's a tribute to all the blogs in the entire blogosphere especially the new wave and post punk sites that's still  holding their ground. after multiple years of existence, hundreds of hours spent in record shacks, thousands of posts and updates later... here we are still alive and kicking. still coming up with some old but undiscovered materials, seems like the search is never ending. and i'm totally guilty as charged... which leads me to this particular post.
cn been around since the beginning of the eighties, formed in the uk and led by sal solo. released a bunch of singles and became fairly popular outside the uk. quite an impressive band with an interesting resume under their name. their looks doesn't actually speak their music, who quickly vanished in 1985 followed by sal solo's solo career that lasted thru 1987, who now produces christian music. i've included both short and long version from this 12" that was released on liberty united records in the uk and manufactured by capitol records in the us in 1981.
keep the blogs rolling guys! \m/ \m/

the belltower - in hollow cd5 1991

a pioneer of shoegaze music with it's third single on the ultimate recording company in the uk, camden town to be precise. was an american indie outfit that emerged in the early nineties. with jody porter on lead guitar and vocals, britta phillips on rhythm guitar and vocals, drummer nino dmytryszyn and mark browning on bass and backing vocals heavily influenced the shoegaze music scene. what they've brought to the table was a classic blend of shoegazing with dreampop-like vocals. if you like pale saints and swirl then the belles are not to be missed.

primitive painters - dirtclods 1992

local act from our very own backyard, the painters really didn't have any other full length release beside this one. their music was very similar to the latter music of slg and the railway children(just my opinion). a little bit jangly and a little bit dreamy, they would have been a perfect fit for the twelve o'clock production. now there was another band from down under of the same name not sure what the relevance is. i'm sure you can find more info on the net so i don't have to do the work. really really tired and hung over from last night, too many kamikazes plus straight tequila shots. i am almost 100 percent sure my buddies feels the same way and hope to have another party before the holiday!! randy_b we you at, man? your bday is up next!! chonlets on the menu don't forget!!

okay...

all great things...

heaven piano co. - s/t

with pacman's fight is just a few days away and my contractor's running out of time, i don't know if they could get it done before this weekend. apparently there was a leak that started from the shower room that went thru the closet and out to the bedroom floor(hardwood), you know how that is... you mix water and wood and the only party we will be having is a mold party! so my friends i will be texting u guys on thursday to either cancel or go on with the party! hopefully it'll be ok by then or there will be a big change of plan. we have to find another host for the fight night.

on with the post, nowhere in the world wide web where i can find any useful information about this band nor a picture to go along with my post! not even the always reliable google search could help me. so a little help about the band's history will come in handy. their music sounds very ethereal and atmospheric that you almost have to close your eyes to enjoy it! dreampop per se, a blissful of shoegaze harmonies.

random single of the month

amsterdam... a band from the early 2000s now no  more. released a couple of albums perhaps three during their almost decade existence from 01 to 07, but grew unnoticeably in the usa. fronted by ian prowse now a soloist, was and lead the early nineties british pop sensation pele, some of you might've been acquainted with band back in the days. their just as talented as coldplay or robbie williams well, maybe. it's not really my cup of tea but it beats the day at the dmv... ya know what i mean! good lyrics plus bardot on the cover! not bad, eh. 'hope you all had a great halloween.

out on the indie label weena records this song is also included in their 1st album called "attitunes".
love phenomenom...
