The Modern Lovers - Songs Of Rememberance

Il y a des chansons que l'on aime tellement qu'en découvrir l'ébauche, ou les premiers pas, est toujours terriblement excitant... Le premier opus des Modern Lovers en présentant un pourcentage conséquent (euh... 100%, en fait), voilà ici un bien sympathique Songs Of Rememberance, pirate 'semi-officiel' sorti en 1998 sur le label Punk Vault, et qui nous propose démos, répétions et versions live...

Vrai pirate qui proposait des versions tres primitives des chansons de Jonathan ("Plea for tenderness" quasi tragique) plus des inedits que l'on n'entendra plus jamais ("songs of rememberance"). Pour les fans de Jonathan, aller voir le webzine qui lui est consacre il est la :

Sublime comme un Velvet Underground qui aurait oublié le cynisme et la pose. Jojo est grand !

Pour les amateurs des Modern Lovers, il y a sur Dime un concert de 1971 (Stonehenge-Ipswich) qui est ce que je connais de meilleur sur cette periode. On y retrouve "plea for tenderness", "songs of rememberances", "ride down on the highway", mais aussi d'autres inedits comme "Cambridge clown" et l'etonnant "I grew up in the suburbs".

We refer to it as "Analog Music from a Lost World" -- previously unreleased post-punk experimental rock from 1981, unlike anything else recorded before or after.

"It’s out there but a really good listen...some awesome experimental work." — Richmond Playlist

"It’s challenging music made by a collection of people who know what the f_ck they’re talking about when it comes to records...fantastic record...holds its own unique feel and straight weirdness. What more could you want?" --

"...enjoyed it immensely! Odd, odd sounds, but funky in a twisted way." —

"It's amazing!" -- Gibraltar Encyclopedia of Progressive Rock

"...pretty weird: mixtures of grrl band vocals, psych rock and spaced-out guitar, and 60s style poetic verse.
Pretty weird, in the good way." —

“...lovely and odd...” -- No Rock and Roll

"...some hefty grooves, and plenty of 'holy shit" moments'. It's a spacious but highly rewarding listen, and I wouldn't be surprised if some label makes an effort to press this on vinyl in the near future." --

Jason Sigal, Managing Director at WFMU said:
"This is amazing stuff and we would be honored to feature it in wfmu's curated portal on the free music archive. I'm very sorry for our slow response, we have a lot of stuff to wade through to find gems like these."
