Super Mega XTC Part 2

Hope you enjoyed yesterday's slew of XTC, nothing difficult to loacate, but maybe some of you
young pups perhaps got an education on them if you were a lot more stuff here over the next 2-3 days so let us get to it.

First up, "Transistor Blast", a four disc set released in 1998, a mixture of studio sessions/live rcordings taken from various BBC sessions. The first two discs are studio efforts, mostly Peel sessions, interesting and highlighted by a fine "Atom Age" on Disc 2. The other two discs are live stuff, Disc 3 culled from a couple of shows, 1978-79, and Disc 4 a 1980 show from Hammersmith Palais which concludes with a fairly smoking "Are You Recieving Me?"

"Fossil Fuel-The Singles 1977-1992" is two discs which have a LOT of overlap with yesterday's stuff, I have included them here in the interest of a few alternate "single versions", notably a decidedly inferior (IMO) version of "This Is Pop".

A somewhat companion piece is the single disc "Beeswax-Some B-Sides 1977-1992",  which  includes a BUNCH of, well, B-Sides, most of which are not compiled elsewhere, this one essential for fans of the band.

Fairly rare from what I understand is "The Tiny Circus of Life", a limited edition French collection from 1992,  a few tracks exist in only this form......according to which source one believes, the release was somewhere between 1000 and 3000 copies, so in any case I guess it's a rarity.

The oldest thing I can come up with is a really cool 1977 Peel Session, from before the release of "White Music",  fun to hear such early versions of "Radios In Motion" and "Statue of Liberty".

"Jules Verne's Sketchbook" is a fan club release (1986) of Andy Partridge's home demo recordings,
again, ANOTHER slew of songs which don't appear much of anywhere else. It is possitively staggering the amount of material these guys not only released but DIDN'T release, I am stunned that I personally even have so much.

Yet another large rarities collection is "Rag N Bone Buffet", a collection of B-Sides and other obscurities among them a Colin Moulding solo effort, "Too Many Cooks In the Kitchen", which he recorded/released under the name "The Colonel"......

I have to stop somewhere for today, there is still a good amount of material yet to come, like I said, I didn't even realize myself how much of this stuff is on the "X" shelf back there, haven't really gone into a ton of detail here but the bottom line is, if you are a fan of these guys you will probably find some stuff here you didn't have, if you just discovered them from yesterday's post, junior, procede with caution because as I said, these boys put out a LOT of material, officially and otherwise.

Got a bunch of extended singles, demos, some stuff Andy Partridge compiled, and some other stuff tomorrow BEFORE I even get to the mountain of live recordings. I will NEVER do such a big post again without doing any preparation, ie sorting stuff out and the like but I TRULY didn't realize how much of thier stuff I if you do happen to be an XTC fan, hope you enjoy something here.

Super Mega XTC Part 1

Not sure how many days/parts this is going to entail, I have a BUNCH of material, I'll try not to
overlap TOO much and also try to avoid some of the lesser (IMO) opinion material, I really haven't prepared for this post the way I generally do on these BIG ones (I also wouldn't be surprised if Dave Sez checked in with some surprises, UK new wave/punk of the late 70's early 80's rarities, he is the ABSOLUTE man!!!!), I just got the idea of doing an XTC post this morning and then looked at the sheer volume of material I have from them........but still, I'm in an XTC frame of mind.

From Swindon, England, ca. 1975, XTC began as guitarist/vocalist Andy Partridge, bassist/vocalist Colin Moulding, dummer Terry Chambers, and keyboardist Barry Andrews. Like so many others, with me, personally,thier most well known works are not necessarilly the most enjoyable, they did have some successful singles ("Dear God", "Senses Working Overtime") that, to me, are not anywhere near the quality of some of the earlier work, but to each his/her own.

OK, I guess I will sort this stuff out as follows, a "proper" discography, followd by some comps and EP's and stuff, followed by a bunch of live shows from thier prime years, and we'll see what else I can come up with....I'm thinking 4-5 days, let's consider today a "primer" for the novice, the more rare stuff (and there is quite a slew) will start tomorrow I guess.

So, the album releases start with an abolute bang, 1977's amazing "White Music", of which we have a wonderful vinyl rip here......certainly one of the greatest albums of the 1970's, for my money a five-star classic without question.....while (IMO) a couple of Moulding's tracks ("Cross Wires", "Do What You Do") are nothing tremendous, Partridge's stuff is of legend.....leading off with one of the great new wave singles, "Radios In Motion", there are also the classics "This is Pop", "Statue of Liberty", "Atom Age", "Neon Shuffle", PLUS a wonderful cover of "All Along the
Watchtower".......highlighted by Partridge's stuttering guitar work and quirky vocals and especially Andrews' amazing hockey arena keyboards, this is an album you will not want to miss if you are not already familiar. By the way, it's one of "those" handful of albums that, to me, the vinyl version, for whatever reason, just sounds better than the CD version.

The follow up, "Go 2" with it's goofy cover, emerged in 1978, and is actually a semi-classic as well....Mouldin's songwriting improves tremendously, his "Buzzcity Talking", "Crowded Room", and "The Rythem" are all standouts, Partridge contriubtes his usual slew of great songs ("Are You Recieving Me", "Life is Good in the Greenhouse", "Jumping in Gomorrah", and Andrews even shows HIS writing chops with a pair of fine contributions, "My Weapon" and "Super Tuff".....this is another excellent album, probably a bit underappreciated.

1979's "Drums and Wires" is something of a letdown, although it does include on of their biggest singles, the great "Making Plans For Nigel", and also "When You're Near Me I Have Difficulty" and "Life Begins at the Hop"......this is another vinyl rip which if you already have you will want for some bonus tracks, including fairly hard to locate "Blame the Weather" and "Tissue Tigers", taken from, I remember it like it was last night, a Trouser Press Magazine "Flexi-Disc".

I consider 1980's "Black Sea " to be thier final really great album, something of a comeback from "Drums and Wires", it is a bold attempt to develop and expand their sound....."Respectable Street", though, sounds like classic XTC, a bold anthem of hypocrisy ("Sunday church and they look fetching, Saturday night saw him wretching over our fence"), we also get the oddball "Living Through Another Cuba" and "Sgt. Rock (Is Going to Help Me)", as well as the truly bizarre "Travels In Nihilon".....also included on THIS vinyl rip is a live "Respectable Street", taken from "Urrgh: A Music War!"

"English Settlement" is a somewhat ambitious 1983 double LP release (that was the end of my vinyl
rips it's digital from here out), it's ok, a bit long and clumsy, there is some good stuff here ("Senses Working Overtime", "No Thugs In Our House").....for fans, not really essential from here. "Mummer" is also a solid, professional, and IMO somewhat dull effort, standouts include "Love on a Farmboy's Wages" and "Wonderland".

In my decidedly non-expert opinion, I consider the seventh album "The Big Express", to be maybe their most under-appreciated disc, and a bit of another mini-comeback......still some fine songwriting here ("I Bought Myself a Liarbird", "Seagulls Screaming Kiss Her, Kiss Her").....NOT an essential album, but a quite good and listenable one.

In case you were wondering, I DO have the fine psych albums that the band released under the name "Dukes of the Stratosphere", look for these a little bit later in this series (reason: they are on a different shelf and I dont feel like going back and getting them right now), the next "proper" XTC album was "Skylarking", I'm not too crazy about it, the CD version does include "Dear God" which was a major single, and one that I don't care that much for, either.

They plugged on...."Oranges and Lemons" (whose title comes from a poem liberally quoted in my favorite book, "1984"...."Oranges and Lemons, say the bells of St. Clemmons....."), and for a band's tenth or eleventh or whatever you consider this, it isn't awful, you have to give them some credit, this came along in 1989, "King for a Day" and "Mayor of Simpleton" are decent XTC, give Mouldin and Partridge props, they could crank out the songs if nothing else.

"Nonsuch" is from 1992 (!), I've only listened to it a few times and don't really recall anything
REALLY standout, it's here if you want it......the final efforts were 1999's "Apple Venus Volume 1", a pretty weak effort (IMO) that experiments with chamber music and folky stuff, and 2000's "Wasp Star (Apple Venus Volume 2)" which I think is even worse.....didn't even have copies of them, had to go on the web and snatch some for you guys to evaluate if yer so inclined.

OK there is a LOT of material here, and you have seen NOTHING yet, wait and see what I have the next few days, if you are a fan of these lads you probably have everything HERE, but for certain a rare piece or two may find you the next couple posts......but i REALLY have a BUNCH of stuff from these guys and I am going to go all "Hendrix" and empty out the vault.......enjoy!

Return of the Riot Grrrls (Part 6)

Thanks to an Anonymous friend of the blog, can complete the entire series of giant free download
collections created by Riot Grrrl Berlin......this set ("This Is What Feminism Sounds Like") was actually the SECOND of the six, but was the only one not on Pirate, nothing like, ohh, going to Riot Grrrl Berlin's actual website ever occured to always-astute me....but our Anonymous commenter did just that, and, guess what!?! There it anyway, thanks to Anon and again thanks to Riot Grrrl Berlin and all the bands involved, these collections are really great. I have NOT got to listen to this yet, but I am sure that it is similar to the others, ie mostly unknown Riot Grrrl bands from around the thing I DO notice is that this one contains both a track from Pussy Riot, whom we discussed a bit the other day, and, also a track from The Horny Bitches, whose album I actually once posted on this very site (check archive I have no idea if it is still available).

Like the other sets, this one also includes a bunch of printable flyers/posters, band links, and info, noone that I know of made a nickle off of this, so please check it out, I think it's a great thing that Riot Grrrl Berlin and all of these bands did to create these, I am glad to have stumbled upon them and more than happy to share them to the readers of this blog (the other collections have been quite popular, actually).

As with the other sets, the tracks are simply
presented in alphabetical order, you can program them however you like, and once again due to Zippyshare's size limitations on file uploads, I have had to split the file into three "discs", otherwise the file is presented exactly as I recieved it, all artwork, text files, etc are intact (and included with the first "disc")......

Again, one final "thank you" to Riot Grrrl Berlin and all of the bands, we could ALWAYS use more projects of this nature. Please support these bands, and, of course, enjoy the music provided.

A HUGE Wrap-up to the Riot Grrrl posts (Part 5)

This, at least as far as I can determine, is the final of the huge Riot Grrrl downloads created for
general consumption by Riot Grrrl Berlin, and this one is enormous.....NINETY FIVE tracks by ninety five bands, PLUS lots of non-musical stuff......the set is called "Cats Against Cat Calling", and besides the copious amount of tracks from bands around the world, there are TONS of printable flyers/posters and many text files, the theme of which is "Anti-Street Harrassement", including "Verbal Defense Tactics" before I need to split these down to "Discs" due to Zippyshare's upload size requirements...since there are so many, I have split it down to four parts. Otherwise the programming is alphabectical, you are free to program them as you desire....

Once again, support these bands and Riot Grrrl Berlin for creating these phenominal collections, not for profit but to hopefully do some good in the world.

Yet Another Huge Batch of Riot Grrrl Stuff (Part 4)

This fine series of little known riot grrrl tracks from around the globe, created by "Riot Grrrl Berlin",
continues with another huge selection. This download, intended as a free give away, is entitled "Mansplaining On The Dancefloor"....if you've investigated the other collections, like those, this one contains some artwork, printable flyers and posters, as well as a list of band links with an impassioned plea (with which I agree) to support these bands that paricipated in this extraordinary project.

Not a lot more I can say, similar to the rest of the series, like the others I had to split this one into two "discs" due to Zippyshare's upload size limitations......otherwise the tracks are simply programmed alphabetically, program them however you choose. I will wrap this up tomorrow with a MAMMOTH sized, 95-track effort. Unless, of course, someone out there has the #2 download in the series which I cannot locate. Otherwise thanks to all the bands and Riot Grrrl Berlin for these excellent efforts.

The title of this portion of the collection is "More Music Less Macho"......again, due to Zippyshare's upload size limitations, I have split the collection in half, referred to as "Disc 1" and "Disc 2", all text, artwork, etc, are included with Disc 1.

More Riot Grrrl than you'd have thought possible Part 2

Just look to yesterday's write-up for the info, this is some awesome Riot Grrrrl stuff that was created for YOU...again, this is  a FREE download, would be wonderful if EVERYONE would check out these generous contributions, assess/cmment upon them....basically these are unknowns (to ME at least), but I support thier efforts 1000%.....PLEASE read the attached notes, links, and info, and PLEASE support these bands, they are about YOU hearing thier shit, NOT about getting a fucking paycheck.....This edition is called "Free Pussy Riot", whom I supported long, long ago on this very blog......45 bands/tracks in THIS edition, if you dig back deep enough, you MAY find my "In Support of Pussy Riot" posts,if they are dead I am sorry, but I LOVE and SUPPORT Pussy Riot in thier battle to keep SPEECH/IDEAS "Free" for at least a little while.....Another set of stuff that at least I have never heard of, BUT THE MAIN THING IS FIGHT THE FUCKING POWER........SOMEBODY needs to stand up to the mainstream, here is a set that is INTENDED to be free......please also check the information/texts/literature which are included with the fine music......This is only Part 2, I think there are 3 more yet to come in this series! Also included is a"Free Pussy Riot" "Action Kit" which includes some templates for making shirts, etc......

I think this is actually the THIRD collection (from Riot Grrrl Berlin), I can only find 5 of the (I believe) 6, so for "my" purposes, we will refer to it as "Part 2".....also, as with yesterday's collection, due to Zippyshare's upload size limitations, I need to split the collection into 2 "discs".....but, a lot of music here, a lot of information on Pussy Riot's tribulations.......I might as well repost Pussy Riot's "Kill the Sexist!" EP, I'll seperate it into a different link so as to keep the free download collection unchanged.....again, it is a VERY impressive piece of work, thanks and congratations to the creators!
