Namespaces Article Talk. But sadly, no one's listening now either. Bill Jones. Jenny Owen Youngs Batten the Hatches Sometimes you find treasure on the net. What was I looking for?
Something to do with architecture, I think. Links led me to some kid's MySpace page - nothing to do with geodesic domes - and I heard Fuck Was I playing as his background music.
I was instantly intrigued. My son is 15 and I endure my fair share of contemporary sounds I can't call them all music , but this combination of astringent, cynical lyrics and subtle but intelligent arrangements had me hooked. I love it all, though Fuck Was I remains my favourite track. Why is this brilliant young New Jersey singer-songwriter languishing in obscurity? Kindly move over, KT Tunstall. Peggy Birch.
I'm always amazed at how unknown this album is. It was recorded just before Bowie's Let's Dance produced by Rodgers and in a way it's the underground, super-hip, dangerous version of that album. It's also perhaps the ultimate New York funk album. It stinks of sleazy nights and early mornings; the grooves are irresistible, late-period disco morphed into raunchy rock and electroid funk.
Rodgers' voice has character and his lyrics are hilarious, featuring absurd sexual innuendos and hair-raising vignettes about the party life. Bowie was obviously impressed and so was I, though it's almost impossible to find these days. Matt Phillips. How can you explain to your two-year-old daughter what you're doing when you take her around Anne Frank's house?
This album - on the surface a skittery, lo-fi assortment of acoustic guitars, soaring brass instruments and cracked vocals - has a hypnotic power and rhythm that makes jaded adults and bouncy toddlers alike sing along.
What is all the more exceptional is how life-affirmingly upbeat it is. The genius of Aeroplane lies in Mangum's ability to take topics such as Anne Frank and two-headed boys floating in jars and make their stories into celebrations. Andrew Schagen. Gowing up in a white pocket of s south London, I struggled to work out why everyone at school was white and spoke English, while at home we were all black and Yoruba was the tongue - even the faces on the sleeves of my parents' records and the voices that blared from the hi-fi.
Twenty years later, the well-fed face of Ebenezer Obey beaming in close-up from the LP cover prompted me to rediscover this prime example of the Juju music dominant in Nigeria at the time.
The 12 seamlessly segued 12 tracks make great party music, and I realise now how much comfort expatriate Nigerians like my parents must have derived from this recording. Adejumoke Oke. Mother Juno still gets to me with its adrenalin rush. Jeffrey Lee Pierce, edgy and psychotic, screaming headlong. Bastard offspring of JG Ballard's crystal world, and like Lowry's day of the dead, it is alcohol-lit, neon and lurid.
Pierce screams tales of Sargasso Sea madness and violence and you can smell the booze on his breath. He was dead within a few years. For me, this record weaves a spell, and holds it all the way. Ian Ormondroyd. Sandra Weckert Trio Be Careful! These Phrases Are Out We stayed with a woman called Cornelia, serendipitously encountered a week before, on a softball field.
We found ourselves in the grounds of a dilapidated, fairytale schloss. Tall, elegant women were playing badminton under the trees. We were directed to hand over barbecue food we'd brought to the "grillmeister". Sitting on a rug, we listened to the Sandra Weckert Trio. Their music was mesmerising, the sun radiant. My secret rapture. Jayne Gill. A chair scraping against a porch isn't a musical instrument. Neither is the water fountain outside your record company.
Somehow, this ambient noise is expertly woven into a record played with almost wilful nonchalance. With hints of an old Italian opera recorded on cassette in the background, and Howe Gelb's unhurried drawl, Chore of Enchantment evokes memories of lazy summer evenings in their hometown of Tucson, Arizona. Anyone familiar with The Godfathers of Music will be comfortable here.
