    Sun, Zoom, Spark:1970 to 1973

    Limited Edition Four LP Boxed Set Includes Newly Remastered Versions Of Lick My Decals Off, Baby, The Spotlight Kid And Clear Spot, Plus An Entire Disc Of Unreleased Outtakes.


    Recorded over a couple of weeks in the summer of 1970 at United Recording Group in Hollywood, Lick My Decals Off, Baby was released the following October. One of Van Vliet's favorites, the album represents the apex of his dissonant style and includes such standout tracks as the quirky-funny I Love You, You Big Dummy and the exquisite solo guitar piece One Red Rose That I Mean.


    Don Van Vliet was an American musician, singer-songwriter and artist best known by the stage name Captain Beefheart. His musical work was conducted with a rotating ensemble of musicians called the Magic Band (1965-1982), with whom he recorded 13 studio albums. Noted for his powerful singing voice with its wide range,Van Vliet also played the harmonica, saxophone and numerous other wind instruments. His music blended rock, blues and psychedelia with avant-garde and contemporary experimental composition.

    It Comes To You In A Plain Brown Wrapper

    One of the most exciting aspects of reintroducing so much rare and incredible music to the world is being able to finally make available material thats been in label-vault limbo since the day it was recorded, vital sounds locked away from the deserving ears of the legions of devoted music fans we at Sundazed count ourselves among. But when were able to present previously shelved material by one of the most visionary and influential artists of all time, in exceptional fidelity, with the look and feel of the packaging that the artist originally meant it to have? Well, then, that just takes everything to another level completelya level thats certainly been reached with the exclusive vinyl-only issue of Captain Beefheart and His Magic Bands mind-blowing lost 1967 sessions.


    Recorded in part as the follow-up to Safe as Milk, Beefhearts debut from earlier that year, the world-shattering material on It Comes to You in a Plain Brown Wrapper was rerecorded, truncated, and issuedwithout the Captains approvalas Strictly Personal in 1968. Mastered directly from the original analog tapes and featuring a wealth of unedited takes never before on vinyl, Sundazeds stunning gatefold double-LP release of this infamously enigmatic opus comes to you wrapped in a sharp outer sleeve bearing specially commissioned artwork by Frank Zappa/Straight Records illustrator Cal Schenkel replicating the albums planned 67 design; inside are rare photos and fascinating, exhaustive liner notes by Magic Band drummer John Drumbo French.


    So here, then, is Captain Beefheart and His Magic Bands second album of gloriously disjointed avant-rock/blues and free-jazz skronk, presented just as natureand the Captainintended. Even after more than 40 years, this music is still hopelessly ahead of its timeor, as one-time Magic Band member Ry Cooder once described it, right on time.

    Mirror Man Sessions

    Import

    When Captain Beefheart went into the studio in late 1967 to record the follow-up to their debut album 'Safe as Milk', which had been released earlier that year, it was with the intention of producing a double album.
    Three of the tracks they recorded were long, psychedelic blues jams. These were intended to fill one of the set's two LPs.


    This concept, however, was at some point abandoned, and many of the tracks from the sessions were left unfinished and without any vocals.


    A number of the abandoned tracks were re-recorded in 1968, and released as 'Strictly Personal'.
    The original session tapes, however, remained the property of Buddha Records, who released them under the title 'Mirror Man' in 1971.
    In 1999, Buddha Records issued an expanded version of the album entitled 'The Mirror Man Sessions', which features five additional tracks taken from the abandoned tapes.



    Music On Vinyl is proud to pay homage to the late Don Van Vliet by re-releasing these Mirrorman Sessions as a double album on 180 gram audiophile vinyl.

    The Return Of The Iconic Mirror Man Album!


    First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl & Smashed Mirror Die-Cut LP Gatefold Cover


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso From The Authorized Buddah Records Tapes


    Captain Beefheart will be forever known as one of the first
    originators of art rock, prog-rock and punk rock all rolled into
    one. With his Howlin' Wolfesque growl and blazing harmonica
    blues wailing, Don Van Vilet a/k/a/ Captain Beefheart truly
    delivered the goods with his legendary Mirror Man album.
    Originally recorded between 1965 and 1967, The Captain
    and his Magic Band created some of the most masterful funk
    and progressive rock ever waxed with this stellar session.


    Consisting of lengthy jam packed champions like his classic
    Tarotplane and 25th Century Quaker, Beefheart continues to
    rock further with the international title track hit Mirror Man and
    the funkified rocker Kandy Korn.


    Friday Music is very proud to announce the authorized 180
    Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of Captain Beefheart's classic
    Mirror Man. Mastered from the authorized Buddah Records
    tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol
    Mastering in Hollywood, these classic tracks truly reach sonic
    heights in the audiophile vinyl domain.


    For a very short time, we are also including the super
    rare psychedelic die-cut gatefold LP cover artwork not seen in
    decades, to further enhance your listening pleasure, plus three
    poems on the back cover from the pen of Don Van Vilet.

    Safe As Milk

    Captain Beefheart's 1967 debut album Safe As Milk introduced the world to a one-of-a-kind visionary whose unique output had no precedent in contemporary music. Beefheart, aka Don Van Vliet, filtered the raw influence of the blues and R&B through his own singular musical sensibility and left-field lyrical wordplay, and surrounded himself with some of the most talented and inventive young musicians around. The result was an album that, even in the heady year in which it was released, sounded like nothing else, and the stage for one of rock's most iconoclastic and idiosyncratic careers.


    With backup from the first, and perhaps finest, incarnation of Beefheart's legendary Magic Band (including future solo star Ry Cooder on guitar and teenage drum prodigy John "Drumbo" French), and production from future studio superstar Richard Perry, Beefheart unveils his fully-formed sound and vision on such landmark tracks as "Zig Zag Wanderer," "Abba Zaba," "Dropout Boogie," "I'm Glad" and "Electricity" (covered two decades later by Sonic Youth).


    Now released by Sundazed Music, this landmark album now sounds the way it was meant to sound, thanks to the restoration of Perry's rare original-and, to most fans, superior-mono mix, which was later altered by Beefheart's label without the artist's involvement. This definitive edition features authoritative new liner notes by Rolling Stone editor and longtime Beefheart enthusiast David Fricke.


    "In mono, Safe As Milk is a powerful, concentrated revelation," Fricke writes, further noting, "Safe As Milk promised comfort, exotic nourishment and rude health-and delivered. Created in a year rich in historic debuts and transformative statements about rock's dynamic and expressive possibilities, Safe As Milk was so far in it was out."

    Diddy Wah Diddy

    Double 7 Set


    In the high desert of California, they were referred to simply as "Beefheart."


    Don Van Vliet acquired the habit of singing along to vintage blues records while hanging with high school chum Frank Zappa. Founder Alex Snouffer formed the Magic Band in late 1964. And, by early 1965, the powerful and charismatic local blues combo had made quite a name for itself locally as "the band" for local dances at the fairgrounds. By late '65 the inclusion of master guitarist Rich Hepner explosively changed the group's chemistry; dances morphed to concerts - with the dancers choosing to sit on the floor, captivated by this white blues band that seemed to transform Exposition Hall into a spellbinding Louisiana swamp.


    In early 1966, the band signed with A&M Records. Producer David Gates (of Bread fame) was assigned production duties, and the first result - a cover of Bo Diddley's "Diddy Wah Diddy" - stunned everyone. Famed Del Rio, Texas DJ "Wolfman Jack" introduced it by saying "OK everybody on the highway, you'd better pull over, cause here comes Captain Beefheart with 'Diddy Wah Diddy.'"


    Ill-fated times intervened with the coincidental cover of "Diddy" by an East Coast group - The Remains - which was releases almost simultaneously on the Epic Records label. Confusion and chaos reigned, and the songs dropped from the charts quickly. Founder Snouffer reflected: That's a record label's, personal manager's, and band's nightmare." Undaunted, Gates penned a follow-up to "Diddy," entitled "Moonchild." The band arranged it themselves - interpreting Dave's guitar/voice demo. Gates reaction: "Boy, it wasn't supposed to happen like this!"


    Van Vliet had also penned his first recorded compositions - "Who Do You Think You're Fooling" for the B-side of "Diddy" and "Frying Pan" for the B-side of "Moonchild." Van Vliet went on in later years through many incarnations of Magic Bands to create the most avante-garde rock music ever recorded, but the roots of these early pieces echo throughout all the later works.

    Safe As Milk

    Import

    Beefheart's debut album, originally released in 1967, was the most accessible and pop inflected of all the releases from his catalogue.
    Still 'Safe As Milk' is a very strong and heavily blues-influenced work but it also hints on many of the features that would later become the trademarks of Captain Beefheart.
    Nice fact is that not only did a 20-year old Ry Cooder play bass & guitar on 'Abba Zaba' and 'Grown So Ugly,' he also arranged the latter as well as 'Sure 'Nuff 'N Yes I Do.'


    Also, Cooder's role in the recording process was to translate the Captain's wilder nations to the rest of the band and generally acts as musical director.
    With him as a supervisor the sessions proceeded more or less smoothly and 'Safe As Milk' was recorded within a month.

    Clear Spot

    Clear Spot is the seventh album by Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band.


    After Trout Mask Replica, which was critically acclaimed but sold poorly, each of the group's following three albums was slightly more conventional than the one before. Beefheart wanted more commercial success - hence his decision to work with the widely respected team of producer Ted Templeman and engineer Donn Landee, who also created hits for artists such as the Doobie Brothers, Carly Simon and Van Morrison. Clear Spot gathers together much of the lyrical material that Beefheart had created or formulated at the beginning of The Spotlight Kid recordings. (via Wikipedia)

    Captain Beefheart's 1982 release Ice Cream For Crow was his final recording before retiring from the music business forever to devote himself to full time painting. A more somber affair than the previous record, Doc At The Radar Station, it is still a strong final musical statement from him. A more streamlined new Magic Band is back for this recording and masterfully help send the Captain off in style. Featuring hit songs (in an alternate universe!) such as The Host The Ghost The Most Holy-O, Hey Garland I Dig Your Tweed Coat and 81 Poop Hatch.

    Hot Rats

    By 1969, after releasing a 'mother lode' of Mothers of Invention classics, leader Frank Zappa was ready to breakthrough other musical barriers that were still holding popular music in a conservative headlock.


    Being one if not the first album to be recorded using 16 tracks (twice the number being used at the time on both sides of the Atlantic), Hot Rats became a leading edge in both modern recording technology and the evolution of jazz/rock-fusion. Mostly instrumental, it features six original compositions; three loose jam pieces, the remainder being tight ensemble arrangements. Some of the finest players around come together in varying combinations, all-the-while showcasing Frank Zappa's guitar virtuosity.


    Among others, Lowell George of Little Feat-fame lends guitar, jazz violinists extraordinaire Don 'Sugarcane' Harris and Jean-Luc Ponty plus fellow Mother Ian Underwood's keyboard and woodwind work, complete the leader's advanced vision. Last but not least, the legendary Captain Beefheart brings his unique pipes to the infamous Willie The Pimp.


    Soon to become a concert staple and fan favorite thereafter, Peaches En Regalia is truly a modern jazz standard, eventually covered by the likes of Phish and The Dixie Dregs. Also included are Son of Mr. Green Genes, Little Umbrellas, The Gumbo Variations and It Must Be A Camel. Mastered and cut directly from the original analog master tape by Bernie Grundman under the supervision of Gail Zappa.

    God Bless Tiny Tim


    50th Anniversary Edition In Pink Colored Vinyl


    Limited To 900 Copies


    First-Ever Vinyl Reissue In The U.S


    If you think, based on "Tiptoe Thru' the Tulips
    with Me" and his nationally televised marriage
    to Miss Vicki on The Tonight Show, that Tiny
    Tim was a mere novelty act, think again. Behind
    that ukulele, pasty white make-up, falsetto, and
    prominent proboscis was a serious scholar of
    American music, perhaps the only performer of
    the '60s (and certainly the only performer of his
    age group) keeping the torch alive for songs from
    vaudeville and Tin Pan Alley.


    Tim (born Herbert
    Buckingham Khaury) also was blessed with a
    stupendous vocal range, from baritone to his
    trademark falsetto, and was adept on not just
    ukulele but guitar, mandolin, and violin. Even with all that talent, though, had Tiny Tim
    just made a straight '20s trad jazz/pop/folk album for his debut record, God Bless Tiny Tim
    would not be the stone-cold cult classic it is today. But the album married Tim's innate
    eccentricity with stupendously lush production from Richard Perry, who was fresh from
    working on Captain Beefheart's debut, Safe as Milk, and would go on to produce everybody
    from Diana Ross to Rod Stewart.


    With Perry's production, and Artie Butler's arrangements,
    God Bless Tiny Tim featured an incredible assortment of instruments, from didgeridoo
    to koto to celeste to tympani, with nary a ukulele to be found on many of the tracks.
    Furthermore, the album was sprinkled with some of the psychedelic fairy dust that was in
    the air at the time (1968), full of non sequiturs both verbal and musical (like the cover of
    Sonny Bono's "I Got You Babe"). The result: an album that stands outside of time, defying
    categorization or description.


    Now, to celebrate its 50th anniversary, Real Gone Music is
    releasing God Bless Tiny Tim on LP for the first time since its original issue in the U.S. in
    a pink vinyl edition limited to 900 copies. This record belongs in any serious-or not-soserious!-record

    that could only be achieved from sharing a lifetime of sisterly togetherness and a near psychic vocal interplay that can only come from being born mere
    seconds apart from each other. It's been rendered and produced beautifully by American music legend Ry Cooder.


    This is an album expanding on an American musical tradition. It is not pastiche or a tribute, but rather a direct antecedent and extension of the original folk legacy that is being exhibited within these songs.


    Here's a little more about it in the Haden's own words.


    During our early life, we were surrounded by music on both sides of our family. We visited our dad's family in Missouri, where they taught us old country songs they used to perform on the radio as The Haden Family. Our grandparents on our mother's side used to sing us to sleep with old Yiddish songs. Growing up, we often had music playing in the house, whether it be our mom playing Billie Holiday and Nina Simone records, or our dad playing Keith Jarrett and Ornette Coleman in the living room.


    We met Ry when we played with his son Joachim, and Joachim asked him if he'd sit in for our show. Once Ry heard we were singing "Voice From On High" by Bill Monroe, he was in right away. The next day we got a call from Ry suggesting we record an album. We wrote down a collection of songs we all liked, then narrowed it down to the music that became the Haden Triplets album. These songs are rich in history, and by recording them we hope to help keep them alive. - Tanya, Rachel & Petra Haden


    Produced by Ry Cooder (Buena Vista Social Club, Captain Beefheart's Magic Band, Paris, Texas)and mixed by Martin Pradler (Robbie Robertson, Mavis Staples, Buddy Guy)

    The Emotional Plague

    Supreme Dicks put out one single in their career. It was a double B-side. Maybe they had a sense of humor, but in hindsight it's hard to tell.


    Falling somewhere between Captain Beefheart, Throbbing Gristle and SALEM in the lineage of musicians who've found a muse in the nasty, brutish brevity of life, Supreme Dicks chose to cloak disarmingly real paranoia and grief in the contemporary trappings of late '80s and early '90s lo-fi college rock. They may have inhabited the same sonic and physical space as colleagues like Dinosaur jr. (Lou Barlow was an occasional Dick, and at least one early Dinosaur jr show was actually played by Dicks in disguise), but they stripped away all youthful yearning and anticipation in favor of a bleak and unblinking certainty. Honest, frank, and free of ironic distance. Obtuse and yet so essential that it can't help but feel familiar to anyone who's ever spent a sleepless night wondering whether there's any point to all of this. And, on occasion, warm, intimate and lovely.


    The Supreme Dicks formed while students at Massachusetts' Hampshire College in the twilight of the Reagan era. The campus was a fractured post-hippie free-for-all that many students theorized was a right-wing think tank experiment in pitting progressives against each other. The constantly revolving lineup centered around Daniel Oxenberg, Jon Shere, Steve Shavel, Mark Hanson, Jim Spring, and whoever else was around and willing to torture an instrument. They advocated the teachings of Wilhelm Reich and were vocal about focusing their creative energy via celibacy. This may do much to explain the constant, unrelenting tension that provides the driving force behind the most powerful moments in their music. Regardless of tempo or arrangement, Supreme Dicks songs play like soundtracks to autoerotic asphyxiation, haunting tones that ring in the ears at the moment consciousness is lost and not guaranteed to return.


    Jagjaguwar is proud to reintroduce the complete recordings of Supreme Dicks in the form of Breathing and Not Breathing, a four CD set that includes both of the band's studio albums, The Unexamined Life from 1993 and The Emotional Plague from 1996, along with 1994's Workingman's Dick, a collection of early archival recordings, and the 1996 EP This Is Not A Dick, which has been fleshed out with rare and unreleased tracks. Also available are 2xLP editions of The Unexamined Life and The Emotional Plague, neither of which has been previously released on vinyl.

    Yes It's True

    Yes, It's True is the first proper studio album by The Polyphonic Spree since 2007s The Fragile Army.


    "The songs here are from many different periods in the last few years," frontman Tim DeLaughter explains. "This record feels like a collection of "songs" rather than a long listening piece which we've done previously in the Spree stylistically. It's kind of refreshing."


    The album was recorded in stages and produced by The Speekers alongside Eric Drew Feldman (PJ Harvey, Captain Beefheart) with mixing done by Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, U2).

    Heartless Heathen

    Fronting some of the most original, compelling and unpredictable bands
    (not only in Detroit, but the world) for over two decades, Tim Lampinen's
    work with the Epileptix, Clone Defects, and Human Eye has always held
    a rapturous cult following. Yet his work with his current trio, Timmy's
    Organism, presents Lampinen (aka Timmy Vulgar) along with bassist Jeff
    Giant and drummer Blake Hill, ready for their close-up.


    With Heartless
    Heathen the group touches on their artistic and spiritual forbears of
    Captain Beefheart and Destroy All Monsters, while amply ramping up the
    slop culture rapture of classic punk 'n' roll like Chrome, Crime, and the
    Damned as well as contemporaries like Thee Oh Sees. There's a reason
    why Lampinen won a $25,000 Kresge Grant for his work with his bands...
    he creates music that borders on art, live shows that border on theater.
    It's high time the rest of the world takes notice. Are you ready?

    White Hat

    Includes CD


    Big Harp is the by-product of a three-year whirlwind for husband-and-wife duo Chris Senseney (vocals, guitar, keyboards) and Stefanie Drootin-Senseney (bass, backing vocals). The end result is White Hat, the debut full-length for Omahas Saddle Creek. The songs range from gun-in-her-garter saloon narratives and paranoid soul struts to intimate ballads of quiet resignation and open-hearted love songs. The recordings are raw and un-fussed over, with the spirited energy and honest emotion of live performance.


    Drawing from the classic country and folk of Senseneys childhood and anchored by Drootins rock-solid rhythms and indie-punk roots, White Hat contains echoes of artists from Townes Van Zandt to Nick Cave, Willie Nelson to Captain Beefheart. Fitting for a couple in no rush to slow down, White Hat was recorded at LAs Nightingale studios in a mere three days. Rilo Kiley bassist Pierre de Reeder recorded the album and drums were handled by Chris Phillips.

    Eat Their Own

    Known for his work with Soft Black, New Jersey's Vincent Cacchione aka Caged Animals, has created a highly personal, wistfully nostalgic world that basks in the golden glow of love both new (Lips That Turn the Light To Fire) and old (Teflon Heart) in the haze of regret (This Summer I'll Make It Up To You) and the blur of days gone by. Taken collectively, these are songs which gather resonance with every listen and poignancy with every play, lending increasing depth and profundity towards the fleeting moments in life which we only wish could linger a little more.


    Caged Animals is a wired world, but simultaneously an innocent version of darker concepts, mixing lyric and melody to create the sweetest sensation. It's a world inhabited by Raymond Carver vignettes and exhibitions of raw Neil Rough portraiture or Robert Frank's The Americans and it could be sound tracked by The Elephant 6 collective playing Dion covers, Sun Ra's future-jazz moogs and grooves, no wave's awkward DNA or Captain Beefheart at his most playful.

    The Guardian

    Little Howlin' Wolf is a street musician, bluesman, actor, storyteller and truth seeker. He is also a true outsider, whose wrenching soulfulness and fire-brained intensity have been captured in a breadcrumb trail of confounding and intentionally obscure self-released records. In the late 1960s Wolf -- born James Pobiega in 1950 -- was already a saxophone wailing fixture at the legendary Chicago hangout, Maxwell Street Market. By the mid-1980s he released nearly three dozen 45s. Those singles are sprawling journeys into Wolf's world vision, as told through his gravelly voice and an array of instruments in styles and influences not limited to: American Indian, Polish and gypsy folk musics, Voodoo, vocal chants, blues, calypso and avant jazz. Often, it's all filtered through overdubbed abstraction. Wolf issued two LPs collecting some of those singles -- The Guardian (1982) and Cool Truth (1985) -- both now reissued by Family Vineyard. The Guardian is a baffling, hyper-creative statement recorded between 1976 and 1982. It's also vastly sincere and some of Wolf's most accessible and deeply emotional songs, yet it orbits a universe known only by the likes of Captain Beefheart or Albert Ayler. This reissue features replicated LP jackets, with Wolf's original transcendent liner notes, and labels bearing the Solidarity Solidarnosc Records name; never before seen photos; and new essay by ethnomusicologist Ian Nagoski.

    Drive Soundtrack


    Opaque Gold Colored Vinyl


    Various Artists with Original Motion Picture Score by Cliff Martinez. A Hollywood stunt performer who moonlights as a wheelman discovers that a contract has been put on him after a heist gone wrong.

    The soundtrack features original music by Cliff Martinez (The Lincoln Lawyer, Traffic) with Eurosynth-styled songs by Kavinsky & Lovefoxxx (''Nightcall''), The Chromatics (''Tick of the Clock''), Desire (''Under Your Spell''), College featuring Electric Youth (''A Real Hero''), and Riziero Ortolani featuring Katyna Ranieri (''Oh My Love''). Rolling Stone Magazine named Drive the No. 1 movie of 2011.

    The Drive soundtrack raced to the top of the iTunes album charts, hitting No. 4 within a week of its digital release and peaking at No. 35 on the Billboard Top 200. The soundtrack re-entered the charts in February 2012 when the film was released on DVD.

    ''One thing that was unique for me about this project was having songs exert such a strong influence on the score,'' said Martinez. ''That helped to create a unified, one-size-fits-all, style of soundtrack... the 80s electronic pop style made a lot of sense to me. I knew that Nicolas [Refn, director] was in love with that sound and I saw a way to acknowledge it with vintage synth sounds and cover most of the dramatic food groups while referencing that style.''

    This blending of score and song is the perfect vehicle for Cliff Martinez. Martinez moved to California in 1976, just in time for the punk movement. He had stints as drummer for the Weirdos, Lydia Lunch and Foetus frontman Jim Thirlwell, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Dickies. He was also the drummer in the final incarnation of legendary iconoclasts Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band.

    Martinez has since received compositional credit on many of Steven Soderbergh's projects including Kafka, The Limey, Solaris, Gray's Anatomy, Schizopolis, Traffic (which earned four Oscars and earned Martinez a Grammy nomination), and the upcoming film Contagion. He also composed the music for Espion(s) and A L'Origine, two French films released in 2009 - the latter earned a Cesar Award nomination for best original score. His other credits include Pump Up The Volume, Wicker Park, Wonderland, and The Lincoln Lawyer.

    Pheel Phree

    Formerly the man behind Jookabox, DMA (aka David Moose Adamson) began
    his career as a one-man-band in the grand old tradition of the 'one-man-band'
    (re: man with a bass-drum on his back and a monkey clapping symbols, collecting
    change from the crowd etc.). With Pheel Phree, to some extent, Adamson has
    returned to his roots. Except this time, the result sounds more like a creepy
    basement dance party.


    DMA's debut full-length provides a uniquely beat-driven, meditative clamor. At
    times danceable and at times ethereal, the self-produced LP is intriguingly
    dicult to pinpoint. James-Ferraro-sensibilities are coupled with the artisticallyfree-approach of Captain-Beefheart, resulting in 33 minutes of a rather otherworldly tunes. Pheel Phree eectively introduces the world to the weirdness
    that is David Moose Adamson.

    The Unexamined Life

    Supreme Dicks put out one single in their career. It was a double B-side. Maybe they had a sense of humor, but in hindsight it's hard to tell.


    Falling somewhere between Captain Beefheart, Throbbing Gristle and SALEM in the lineage of musicians who've found a muse in the nasty, brutish brevity of life, Supreme Dicks chose to cloak disarmingly real paranoia and grief in the contemporary trappings of late '80s and early '90s lo-fi college rock. They may have inhabited the same sonic and physical space as colleagues like Dinosaur jr. (Lou Barlow was an occasional Dick, and at least one early Dinosaur jr show was actually played by Dicks in disguise), but they stripped away all youthful yearning and anticipation in favor of a bleak and unblinking certainty. Honest, frank, and free of ironic distance. Obtuse and yet so essential that it can't help but feel familiar to anyone who's ever spent a sleepless night wondering whether there's any point to all of this. And, on occasion, warm, intimate and lovely.


    The Supreme Dicks formed while students at Massachusetts' Hampshire College in the twilight of the Reagan era. The campus was a fractured post-hippie free-for-all that many students theorized was a right-wing think tank experiment in pitting progressives against each other. The constantly revolving lineup centered around Daniel Oxenberg, Jon Shere, Steve Shavel, Mark Hanson, Jim Spring, and whoever else was around and willing to torture an instrument. They advocated the teachings of Wilhelm Reich and were vocal about focusing their creative energy via celibacy. This may do much to explain the constant, unrelenting tension that provides the driving force behind the most powerful moments in their music. Regardless of tempo or arrangement, Supreme Dicks songs play like soundtracks to autoerotic asphyxiation, haunting tones that ring in the ears at the moment consciousness is lost and not guaranteed to return.
