Billed as Silver Apples, but the connection is Xian Hawkins who sat in for the original drummer Danny Taylor in the second incarnation many years later. But anyway, I think the CD is really meant to be listed under Sybarite, that's what it says on the CD.

Say, the new Flaming Lips LP is pretty disappointing.

Haven't heard the new Flaming Lips album yet, but it's getting bad reviews everywhere. Personally, I wasn't too big on 'Yoshimi battles the pink robots' either.

Yeah, I'm really not too wild about this schmaltzy sugar-coated stuff they've been doing the past few albums.

It's...interesting. Not as good as Zappa. Perhaps a bit overhyped.

of course it isn't as good as zappa?????
do check out Disco Volante though, it is totally different from this, and muchmuch better.

Yeah, the debut is easily their weakest album. I think parts of it are actually really shitty. "The Girls of Porn?" Yeesh. Disco Volante and California are boner though.


Totally agree, but the debut certainly has some brilliant moments. (Travolta, Dead Goon...) Guess you had to be there at the time, because back then there was NOTHING quite like that album. Perhaps it hasn't aged all that well.

As for Bungle being over-hyped? WHERE? When? The way I see it, these guys have NEVER recieved their due credit. Infact, (hated) Warner Bros' half-assed marketing & promotion of California was a large factor in the band ultimately breaking up.

It was a prelude to the series. A double LP set that one had to mail away for.

I just listened to Disco Volante and I loved it to death. I was talking just about that album. The S/T one.

It does have some great songs-like the first four immediatley come to mind.

Ray Davies : Other People's Lives.

This album is the best new album I have heard in years. Davies was always a brilliant songwriter, but he just keeps getting better and better! This album has 13 songs (69 minutes playtime), a small line-up of musicians (mostly two guitars, bass, drums and Davies on keyboards). Great arrangements, great production and great sound. And you can hear every word he sings!

8)

Hell yeah. Easily their best, IMO. I'm still discovering new ways of enjoying this album, ten years later.
