RIPCORDZ: Canadian as Fuck

The Ripcordz haven’t been around forever -- it just seems that way.
Formed in 1980, the band played various basements and dives before deciding they really didn’t have anything better to do and really started paying attention to what they were doing. The result, their first album, “Ripcordz Are Go(d)” released in 1988. Since then, they’ve released ten full-length albums, gone on 13 cross-Canada tours and played well over a thousand shows (they stopped counting a while back). The sound includes a mix of rock ‘n roll, hardcore, Punk and pop (mostly Punk, we’d say). They like to describe it as a glob of distortion that bursts out of your speakers and soils the rug so your parents have to clean it up. (The band likes to say that, but the record company wishes they would stop…) They’ve played with a wide variety of alternative bands including Rancid, Nirvana, Anti-Flag, Lydia Lunch, DOA, The Misfits and a host of others. Rancid was even nice enough to call them “Canada’s best Punk band.”
With Alex on bass, and François Demers rejoining the band on drums -- it’s their strongest line-up yet. And Paul vows that he’ll learn how to play guitar any day now. The band’s latest album, “What if they held a revolution and nobody came?” has been getting some rave reviews. And they’re happy to keep playing and releasing new material as long as the fans like the new stuff more than the old. Paul describes it this way: “We may be an old band, but we’re playing new music. Once we become our own cover band, I’m gonna quit and take up knitting or politics or something...”

THE JAM: Set the Skies Ablaze (Bootleg)

The Jam were an English punk rock/mod revival band active during the late 1970s and early 1980s. They had 18 straight top 40 singles in the United Kingdom, from their debut in 1977 to their breakup in 1982, including four number 1 hits. Two of these 18 singles were only available in the UK as imports, and as of 2007 they remained the best-selling import singles of all time in the UK. The Jam released one live album and six studio albums, the last of which, The Gift, hit number 1 on the UK album charts.
They drew upon a variety of stylistic influences over the course of their career, including 1960s beat music, soul, rhythm and blues and psychedelic rock, as well as 1970s punk rock and new wave. The trio was known for its melodic pop songs, distinctly English flavour, and mod image. The band launched the career of Paul Weller, who went on to form The Style Council and later had a successful solo career. Weller wrote and sang most of The Jam’s original compositions, and he played lead Rickenbacker guitar. Bruce Foxton provided backing vocals and played unusually prominent basslines, which were the foundation of many of the band’s songs; including the hits "Down in the Tube Station at Midnight", "The Eton Rifles", and "Town Called Malice". Rick Buckler played drums.

Sprung from the same UK punk scene as the Clash, the Slits are more often lumped in with all-female groups like Switzerland’s Liliput. It's a logical impulse, but the truth--as ever--is more complicated. For one thing, they weren't all female after Palmolive left to join the Raincoats and Budgie (Siouxsie and the Banshees) stepped in as drummer. Then there's the unclassifiable musical concoction reggae producer Dennis Bovell helped them create. It's punk, it's no wave, it's dub--and ultimately has more in common with the post-punk of PiL or the Pop Group. Met with critical accolades, Cut failed to ignite the charts and was their only recording for Island (they broke up two years later). This welcome reissue features revealing liner notes--in both senses of the word--and two bonus tracks, an off-kilter "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" and an extended version of "Love Und Romance." --Kathleen C. Fennessy

MAGAZINE: (2002) Play.

For a few years in the late 70s and early 80s Magazine recorded some of the most intelligent music of the punk/new wave era. PLAY captures live the best of their first three albums. If you normally shy away from live albums (because they're usually so lame), don't be afraid of this one. This is one of those live albums like Cheap Trick's Live at Budokan or Black Flag's Who's Got the 10 1/2? that shows off how great the band really was and stands as an excellent album in its own right. Magazine fans argue over which of the first three albums are the best (I prefer Secondhand Daylight) - but this classic live album is a great high energy place to start if you're just getting into Magazine. If you're already a fan and don't own this - buy it! And once you've maxed out on Magazine records don't forget Howard Devoto's later work with Luxuria. --- Lincoln J. Lounsbury

MAGAZINE: (1978) Real Life

Import pressing of Magazine's debut album features the original nine tracks, including the anthemic single, 'Shot By Both Sides'. EMI. REAL LIFE is the LP debut of the New Wave band Magazine, formed by Howard Devoto after ditching the Buzzcocks for greener pastures. They arrived just when Punk was changing to a more complex, challenging sound, and this LP stayed on the turntable at Wax Trax, where I worked, for at least a year. As a matter of fact, it was almost required to be able to do an impersonation of Howard's very idiosyncratic vocal style to BE employed by Wax Trax. Dave Formula's wonderful, swirling keyboards and Barry Adamson's intricate, in-the-pocket bass work were, for me, the other indispensible factors which made Magazine one of the best post-punk bands. The whole album is truly original, from "Shot By Both Bides" to "Burst" to "My Tulpa" to "The Light Pours Out Of Me" to the majestic "Parade". One reviewer has called this album "The post-punk ground zero", and I can agree. One listen to REAL LIFE and you will hear where modern rock begins. They followed this LP with the truly spooky SECONDHAND DAYLIGHT, another masterpiece, and then actually got some airplay with THE CORRECT USE OF SOAP, their third. If you have not heard Magazine, you are missing a very great (and, dare I say, important) band. And if that ain't enough, you can jump into the mosh pit and pogo to 'em, too! Terrific stuff.

MAGAZINE: (1979) Secondhand Daylight

If you are looking to buy your first MAGAZINE cd, some reviewers on Amazon will tell you to get THE CORRECT USE OF SOAP first because it's the most "accessible." My recommendation is: Start with the best--SECONDHAND DAYLIGHT. Get REAL LIFE next. Try THE CORRECT USE OF SOAP third. As for the accessibility issue--it's true; I didn't particularly like SECONDHAND DAYLIGHT the first time I heard it. It's as though my brain could not immediately process its awesome luminosity. But after a few more listens, its brilliance started shining through. Is it goth? Is it punk? Comparing this album to anything else is foolish and might even be misleading, but I'm going to throw some band names out that are in the ballpark: Bauhaus, Sex Pistols, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Damned, David Bowie (but harder and darker), Christian Death, Radiohead, Iggy and the Stooges, New York Dolls, Sonic Youth, Velvet Underground, early Roxy Music, early Eno. In any case, this cd takes you all the way into outerspace. Get ready for a wild ride. --- Enrique

MAGAZINE: (1980) The Correct Use of Soup

This third album by the legendary band Magazine is generally considered more accessible than Real Life or Second Hand Daylight. There's something almost classical in the arrangements and the playing although the music still has the punk edge, especially on songs like Because You're Frightened and Model Worker. You Never Knew Me with Laura Teresa's atmospheric backing vocals is particularly graceful and moving. Ever the poet, Devoto rhymes 'philadelphia' with 'healthier' on the song of that title. I Want To Be Burn Again has its eerie moments and the arrangement, especially the swirling cascading synths, reminds me of what Peter Murphy would do later in the eighties. The Sly Stone cover Thank You (Fallettin Be Mice Elf Agin) could probably be termed 'plastic funk' by analogy with David Bowie's plastic soul on Young Americans. But the highlight of the album for me remains the weird atmospheric Song From Under The Floorboards, an awesome number with mysterious hypnotic appeal. To me, it's on a par with Devoto's strange masterpiece called Rubbish on the Luxuria album. Devoto is a man of many talents but unfortunately not prolific enough. This album is therefore to be treasured. --- David

MAGAZINE: (1991) Scree

The cream of Howard Devoto's post Buzzcocks band that Radiohead, Coldplay and others acknowledge as inspiration for their current creativity. Unlike somebody else stated here, this is new for a lot of Magazine fans. Not found in such way on any other main 'records' together. I'm a big lover of this still unique band. There's always some impatience and theatricality in the performance of Howard Devoto. So great. Whereas the bass of Barry Adamson is steady, creative, and so beautifully waving through the songs... You also can hear the recognisable guitarsound of the late John Mc Geogh on most tracks aswell. And find the so typically Magazine sound the lucky live catchers can still remember. I saw them at the 7th June of 1980 in my hometown and was deeply impressed and thrown over by it. And I was in very good company with friends, who experienced exactly the same then.
This cd cover some B-sides aswell. But it's still good listening and a thrill. Again and again. Play it as much as you like. Magazine is a gut experience and it won't leave you. I could say that during the last 25+ years. Amazing. I would have agreed with people saying at the time, that Magazine/Devoto thrill is forever. Trying to explain you that now again. Ofcourse there are favourites like 'Touch and Go', 'Give me Everything', 'I love you Big Dummy'(from earlier Buzzcock/Spiral Scratch appearance and written by Don van Vliet, Capt. Beefheart), 'Twenty Years ago' plus the more than interesting Live contributions of sacred beauty, songs of the first two studio albums. It was a great pleasure to find this Scree here on amazon. Internet does give life better quality. Lovely... --- C.J. Van Hall

''When I look at these tapes, nearly 30 years after shooting them, I can remember thinking the Dead Boys, at least for some brief period of time, were the greatest rock band on Earth. I still feel that way.
