Blue Orchids - The Greatsest Hit (Money Mountain) ( Rough Trade 1982 )

Post-Punk psychedelic pop classic from Manchester in 1982

his Manchester quartet, which included two early members of the Fall — guitarist/singer Martin Bramah and keyboardist Una Baines — used organ as its main instrument, but at times on The Greatest Hit it sounds as if Baines is playing a different song from the rest of the band. There are many overlapping layers in the deceptively simple sound; the long organ washes are interrupted by guitars lurching to the fore. Bass and drums keep the steady beat, but the others don't necessarily fall in line behind them. Vocals are half-sung, half-spoken and full of poetic pretense, but it's the mesmerizing music that captures the listener in bright swirling folds. While The Greatest Hit can be simply tagged as neo-psychedelia, that doesn't cover the full scope of this fascinating band's music.

Pere Ubu - Dub Housing ( Chrysalis 1979 )

Second LP by Pere Ubu in 1979...!
The spectacular Dub Housing accentuates the more amorphous qualities of the band's sound, drawing heavily on synthesizer player Allen Ravenstine's utterly original soundscaping ability. Songs like "Codex," "Caligari's Mirror" and the ominous title track conjure up images straight out of art-house psychological horror films like Carnival of Souls. Simply one of the most important post-punk recordings

Dwarves - Blood Guts And Pussy ( Sub Pop 1990 ) Re-Issue

Third LP from the Chicago extreme Garage Scum Punkers!

...Proponents of an extremist wing of the less-is-more school of thought, the Dwarves have wreaked much underground havoc with highly confrontational (often blood- soaked) live sets that are over in ten minutes and "longplayers" of acute political incorrectness that don't last even twice that. If there weren't so much action here — imagine watching The Evil Deadon fast- forward — these San Francisco-via-Chicago neo-punks might be just another bunch of exhibitionists.

The Vertebrats - A Thousand Day Dream ( Reaction 2003 )

Remastered retrospective from the founders of the Champaign, IL scene. 80's garage pop at it's best!

In the early-80s, the patron saints of the Champaign, Illinois music scene were a four-piece band named The Vertebrats, whose brand of simple, urgent, garage-rock --influenced by 70s punk and the British Invasion rock of the 60s-- defined the budding music scene. The ‘Brats were raw, dynamic and unpretentious, raised on The Clash, Rockpile, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Ramones, and Neil Young, and empowered by their peers, like The Replacements, Husker Du, and Mission of Burma. Ironically, what makes the band sound so vital today is probably the same thing that kept the ‘Brats from getting a record deal in their prime. The Vertebrats music was too tuneful to make them “punk”, too rough around the edges to qualify them as “new wave”. Despite their rave reviews in the rock press of the day, shortsighted label executives didn’t know what to make of their approach.

Galaxie 500 - On Fire ( Rough Trade 1989 )

Second offering from the Galaxies in 1989!

On Fire acknowledges a past master of mopery with an unsanctimonious cover of George Harrison's "Isn't It a Pity." This second release shapes out the spaces between Dean Wareham's proto-strum and whine/wail, Naomi Yang's exceptionally melodic bass lines (the band's true emotional center) and Damon Krukowski's economical drumming. Kramer (producer of the band's entire output to date) throws in enough reverb and echo to nearly cover lyrics like "I stood in line and ate my Twinkie" beneath a fuzzy warm sonic blanket. Wareham's lead guitar lines are clearer and more confident here and, with nice touches like saxophone on "Decomposing Trees," the songs are immersion chambers of atmosphere.

The Gun Club - Fire Of Love ( Ruby 1981 )

I recently returned to this and it blew my mind once again like the first time!

Jeffrey Lee Pierce, for all intents and purposes, was the Gun Club. From his days as a peroxided, Debbie Harry-fixated Los Angeles teen-punk, through a lengthy era when he seemed convinced he could channel the spirit of Robert Johnson, to a more recent probe of the seedier side of continental balladry, Pierce — who died of a cerebral blood clot in Utah at the end of March 1996 — always presented a highly individual, albeit sometimes dazed'n'confused, vision of a soul in torment.

Being unseasoned, young, middle-class, white and barely able to play guitar didn't mean he had to be to the blues what the Cramps once were to rockabilly. For Pierce, the blues was a highly personal medium to broadcast/exorcise demons. On Gun Club's cathartic debut, Fire of Love, his unschooled, high-lonesome howl often evokes the hellhound-on-his-tail imagery he's trying to project. This is bona fide mutant blues, with Pierce using the musical structures and lyrical imagery for his own ends. Exciting, intense — even cathartic — and badly (if appropriately) recorded, with a dash of punk leavening, this also has homey and effective touches like bits of violin and slide guitar (by Ward Dotson and Jeffrey Lee). If the band isn't terribly successful when it tries to preserve the letter of the blues (as on a cover of Johnson's "Preaching the Blues"), transposing the genre's spirit to a snarled punk framework ("She Is Like Heroin to Me," the gripping "Fire Spirit") proves the Gun Club's purity of essence.
