A: The Animal Speaks  4:07
   Vocals - John Lydon
B: The Animal Speaks  3:57
   Vocals - Jack Bruce
   Previously unreleased version

両面共タイトル曲でボーカル及びテイク違い。John Lydonの耳を奪われる存在感は流石だが、ボーカルのみが惜しいJack Bruceの方が完成度高し。No WaveなJody Harrisのギターもたまらん。

毎度の豪華な面子に加えてMichael Stipe (R.E.M.)がボーカルのMoby Grape曲のA。そして「夕陽のガンマン」by Ennio Morriconeと楽しい内容だが、やっぱAはオリジナルがイイかな。

Village Fire - Five Offerings From James / James (1985)

Village Fire - Five Offerings From James / James (1985)
Label: Factory (UK)
Catalog#: FAC 138
Format: Vinyl, 12"EP

Credits: Drawings by John Carroll
Notes: Compilation of JIM I (FAC 78) and JIM II (FAC 119)

A1: Whats The World  1:57
A2: Folklore  2:49
A3: Fire So Close  1:50
B1: If Things Were Perfect  3:05
B2: Hymn From A Village  2:52

デビュー作である「JIM I (FAC 78)」と次作「JIM II (FAC 119)」のコンピEP。後にBrian Enoをプロデューサーに迎えビッグバンドになるが解散、6年後復活し現在に至る。楽曲の素晴らしさは当然だが、Tim Boothの、繊細でかつ力強く、UKらしい色合いを持つ声が最大の魅力。初期と後期がオススメ。

A: Compressor  4:47
B1: Black Jesus  7:51
B2: Black And White Jesus  3:04

808 Stateの中心人物であるGraham Masseyがその前に結成したバンド。1981~89年にアルバム4枚、EP4枚、2003年にアルバム1枚をリリース。現在も不定期にライヴを行なっている。Post PunkがJazzとFunkへと向かった好例だが、その後Technoへ発展し成功した例は彼らの他に知らない。Acid HouseなJazzやFunkを、ほぼ変わらぬ面子での2003年「Recharge」も好盤。Manchesterの絆は深い。

Space / Space (1990)

Space / Space (1990)
Label: KLF Communications (UK)
Catalog#: SPACE LP 1
Format: Vinyl, LP, Mixed

Credits: Produced and Written by J. Cauty
Recorded at Trancentral

A1: Mercury
A2: Venus
A3: Mars
A4: Jupiter
B1: Saturn
B2: Uranus
B3: Neptune
B4: Pluto

The KLFが「Space」名義でリリースしたのは此れのみ。と言ってもほぼJimmy Cautyのソロアルバムらしい。同年リリースの大名盤「Chill Out」に比べて凄さこそ無いが、相変わらずプログレな側面を見せるチルアウトなA面とアンビエントハウスのB面(共に約19分)。A面ラストにチラ見する"Twinkle Twinkle Little Star"がロマンチック。

B5: Untitled  0:26

友人からまとめて安く買った正体不明の一枚で、ジャケットが「Kiki Picasso」だったので見つけた時は驚いた。其れまでは存在すら知らなかった此のレコードだが、惜しむらくは「Bazooka」制作の付属ポスターかブックレットが紛失していた事。其の後Webで探し見つけたものをコンパイルしておいた。
「Kiki Picasso」については、その昔雑誌で「過激なパリ」という特集を見て以来のファン。Picassoとは何の関係も無い彼は、パリのアーティスト集団「Bazooka」に所属し「Loulou Picasso」等と紹介されていた。Elvis Costello "Armed Forces"にもイラストが使用されている。
音の方はDevoと時を同じくしての変態的A1、B1が印象的だが、稚拙さは微塵も無く早くも完成されたPost Punkといった感。Hector Zazouが中心だったのか、Discogsではディスコグラフィーに彼の名前で明記されている。プログレからワールドミュージックまで多才だった彼もとうとう鬼籍に入ってしまった。

可愛い名前とは裏腹に此の時代のFactoryらしい、オランダのバンド。後述のDolphin Spurt (1981)はMartin Hannettプロデュース。
入手後20年数経った昨年、初めてイイと思った。尚、此のジャケはブルーの洋紙にシルバーの箔押し。

A1: Chelsea Girl
A2: Drive Blind
B1: All I Can See
B2: Close My Eyes

Creationから突然リリースされた此の4枚は事件だった。所謂赤ライド、黄ライド、ペンギンライド、鮫ライド、である。
この後からEPジャケットが子供写真シリーズになり、名盤「Nowhere("Vapour Trail" は何時聴いても泣けるへと進行していくが、此処迄が一区切り。隙間なく立ちはだかる分厚いギターの壁の向こうから聴こえる素晴らしいメロディー 。オレは常々、サウンドとしてのロックの本質はサイケデリックにあると感じるのだが、此れもまた然り。
