With their sizable membership and prominent horn section, the Suffers might look (and sometimes sound) like one of the many soul revival acts that have risen into public consciousness in the wake of the success of Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, but a listen to the group's debut album makes it clear they're up to something a bit different. The Suffers documents a band whose music speaks to the past and the present at once; these ten musicians clearly have a soft spot for classic soul and R&B, but there's also a big portion of jazz, pop, classic rock, and reggae bubbling up in their music, and in some respects, this music harkens back to the era of adventurous rock bands with horn sections (like Blood, Sweat & Tears, 10 Wheel Drive, and Chicago in their prime) as much as mid-'60s soul.
Collection includes studio albums 1995-2011, 3 compilations and 5 remixes albums by legendary British electronic music duo.
Arriving a scant four months after their last full-length, Don't Get Lost finds Brian Jonestown Massacre trekking ever further afield into the psych wilderness. Since launching his Cobra Studio in Berlin, bandleader Anton Newcombe has turned his operation into a bursting warehouse of sound, opening the floodgates to deliver a torrent of new music over the early 2010s. Bearing the name of a song from 2016's Third World Pyramid, the 14-track Don't Get Lost offers a pretty wide cross-section of BJM's various modes, with a particular emphasis on electronic experimentations.
An excellent round-up of the 15 hit singles that, between late 1980 and fall 1984, saw Spandau Ballet transcend every prediction ever levelled at their music, and establish themselves among the most versatile British bands of their era. From the utterly convincing white boy Funk of the early "To Cut A Long Story Short", "The Freeze", "Musclebound" and "Chant No 1", through the bodyswerve to ballad-ville that ushered in the age of "True" and "Gold", and onto the near-anthemic guitar pop of "Only When You Leave" and "Highly Strung", The Singles Collection suffers only from its failure to tell the tale in strict chronological fashion.
The Saw Doctors' co-leader, singer/guitarist Leo Moran, writes in his liner notes to the band's first live album that, while fans consistently prefer their concerts to their albums, he had opposed releasing a live disc, which he felt couldn't hope to match the experience of being at one of their shows. Giving in, he offers "Apologies for some of the imperfections….There's Davey [Carton] laughing in the middle of singing a good few songs, the backing vocals aren't what they should be a lot of the time and all that kind of stuff."
