Possibly my favourite album (well, until I play some Can):

Pere Ubu - The Modern Dance

Punk before punk, post before any post movements, the sound of the world crashing in on itself and waking up to the fact.  No solutions (unless you count their teen angst gone mad anthem), riding the bus for some kind of meaning (there is none), existentialism for the masses, and general all around mayhem.  What a wonderful album, and David Thomas is still one of the only artists I’ve met who I could not really talk to (I completely froze, unlike many others).  Did get a signed poster though!

What started out as a dream pop session (Insides - Euphoria, Guernica/4AD 1993) was put aside after a link to Toyah and Robert’s Sunday Lunch on YouTube (if you’ve not seen it, give it a go), so I switched genres:

King Crimson - In The Wake of Poseidon (UK pink Island label original)
King Crimson - Islands (US? Atlantic anyway)
Marillion - Fugazi (UK EMI)
Marillion - Script For A Jesters Tear (SA EMI - good pressing, shame they dropped the gatefold sleeve)

Last night was ‘obscurely German night’

Schmetterlinge - S/T in which the Austrian entry to the 1977 Eurovision Song Contest unleashed a compilation of earlier stuff on the eager for pop crap public.  Hippie communists sing folk/world/Dylan with a definite smell of sweat and patchouli and a hint of anarcho-communal living (unlike Amon Duul this lot went on to pop hits rather than Baader-Meinhof).  Has a bongo heavy cover of Shosholoza (Tschotsholossa) which works when they stop singing.  I’d also recommend watching their performance on the Eurovision which somehow manages to combine taking the Mickey out of the contest, Austria being confused with Australia, and a comment on the evils of Global Capitalism with a song and dance suited to its ridiculous title ‘Boom Boom Boomerang’.  Subversive and hilarious (and placed 12th, likely beating GB null point).

Triumvirat - Spartacus

Excessively prog, clearly influenced by ELP but actually pretty good.  Obviously a concept album about the slave who became a gladiator, had sexual tension plus oil with Tony Curtis (scratch that, that was the film), led a revolt and got them all crucified.  Yep, I’d write a rock Opera about that.

Mani Matter - I Han Es Zundholzli Azundt

Before anyone asks WTF? I have zero idea what he is singing about as it is Swiss-German so even my extremely basic German understanding cannot save me.  Sounds like a combination of folky kids songs and folky hidden meaning protest songs.  I bought it because it sounds good to my ears and is in a similar style to Witthuser and Westrupp, Degenhardt, and to an extent Ougenweide.  Or slightly less freaky English folk stuff.

Got a Mr Vinyl delivery this morning so it’ll probably be Mono live later (but if the mood takes me, maybe more German freakiness with Ougenweide and Oktober)
