Jeff & Susanne Greek Review

July 19th, 2014

Review in Translation of sorts: Somewhere between stunning second (Book Of Hours) and third (Ghosts Of Love) album of Green Pajamas, o Jeff Kelly, guitarist and singer, he recorded a cassette for the Green Monkey Records.

While the Green Pajamas are generally an electrical schematic of neopsychedeleias, the cassette is called Coffee In Nepal only acoustic guitar Kelly, his voice and some vocals belonging to Susanne Kelly, who is the young wife of Jeff . (Listen to “Oh How I Love You” here.)

Greece is the country that this work is best known as the cassette Green Monkey released on vinyl five years later by DiDi Music. A beautiful loving disc juvenilia songs but reliefs showing the sensitivity and musicality of the songwriter Jeff, so close and yet so far from the aesthetics of the Green Pajamas.

Now, almost thirty years later, Jeff with Susanne circulating continuity Coffee In Nepal titled By Reckless Moonlight. The album finds them more in love than it used to unroll the folk searches with considerably more electrically. Participation of Susanne is much more evident and it is just her own view that makes the end result much more psychedelic.

The By Reckless Moonlight puts no nomination for the best albums of the year but it is a beautiful drive reverie, monitoring the phases of the moon and hope that people who make two people can last. Enjoy “I ‘d Rather Be Filming In Vanda’s Room” here.

Big In Japan!

July 12th, 2014

I got a Google Alert on The Queen Annes, which you can buy from a fine Japanese website.
I tossed the Japanese text into a translator and got this fine mishmosh:
Active in the Seattle scene of Pre Grunge period, Album also leave it resurrected in the 1990s, active while also very narrow in recent years. Group name that sweet Vocal / Guitar melody and a Punky is hidden characteristic in Punk Pop ~ Power Pop a Jungly like common Green and Illinois bands such as The Vertebrats ~ Outnumbered also (Chicago), etc.. Is a single song, “I Thought Of You,” “This Is That”, etc. also included. It is one piece that I want to recommend by all means the highest level Power Pop series of Numero in the “Buttons”, and the like lovers. New stock / 2014/07/12]

Rigby: Why the Germanic Drummers on Pajamas’ Summer of Lust?

June 20th, 2014

I have seen many reviews of Summer of Lust over the years. This, a first. Paul Rigby, The Audiophile Man notes: “Only the part-time drummers, Karl Wilhelm and Joe Bauer, keep shtumn. Be nice to know why this band’s drummers tend to have Germanic names, though. Must update the Blog on that point.” And the Answer is?
