Roxy Music-"Siren"  Ferry Rules!!!
Bri

Tom Verlaine asked about Brian Eno's sessions for an aborted Television LP:

Quote
Verlaine: The only thing I can tell you about it would be bad! I mean I like Eno, I like his records... The bad thing about it is there was a very uncool A&R guy who took the tapes back to London and played 'em for every fucking artist on Island Records, so-and like I tell that to people but they don't believe it, it happens a lot, especially with the English... I mean they ripped off a whole fucking artform from Americans. And their whole esthetic is like if they hear something that's good it just sorta comes in their ear and goes out their mouth y'know-and most of 'em have the means to like set something on vinyl really quickly, crank out the stuff, so yeah, so there's a lot of lines that are on our record (MM) that might strike some people as familiar even though the songs are like 4 years old...specifically, a lot of the lines turned up on Roxy Music's SIREN record-at least a dozen! Some I got so distressed about I said 'Well f***! -if he's gonna take THESE lines! I mean how can I prove it, I can't prove it, right? But you know...

George Elliott: Quote some, I'm very familiar with that album...

TV: One of them is 'My heart stopped' and the whole band stops...

GE: (quoting Ferry) 'Will it stop?' (Sentimental Fool)

TV: Right, which is a move we used to do in 'Venus de Milo' ...which I got bored with and changed anyway. Another thing is 'This case is closed' at the end of - see, I only heard the album twice, I got so like pissed off when I heard it I took it out and sold it (laughing) didn't want to hear it again!... And there was this thing about little birdcalls I think on one of the songs.

GE: "Nightingale"

TV: Right- we used to have like a (chirp-whistles imitating a bird) kind of effect on a song called 'Prove It'...another thing is on the tape I did for Eno I did a certain style of playing piano-a certain kind of harmony with two hands- which showed up in their keyboards on I believe the second song on the first side ("End of the Line") just a certain way like- but I can't claim originality for that, it was just curious that even THAT showed up... and then we had, the song 'Venus de Milo' the whole subject of it is Love is a drug, I mean there's even a line in it "It's all just like a new kind of drug" -and then there's this Roxy song (chuckling) on SIREN 'Love is the Drug'! ... Bryan Ferry's known as a thief y'know, everybody sort of knows it...

I do love Siren, as well.  Incidentally.

Just finished Songs Of Leonard Cohen, great album, struck me how similar much of it was (backing tracks) to Tim Buckley's Goodbye and Hello....just a bit, just a flavour....
-and he's (mr Cohen) still under-rated and thought of as being miserable when he's one of the funniest songwriters around.

Paper Shoes by Yoko (ewww, her!), excellent psychedelia. Like much great rock it's inspired by a passing train and undergirded by a bo diddley beat. The train is the opening sound effect, an amplified and very extended version of the Pet Sounds one, you might say. Forget Yoko for a moment, the train part is a stereo hi-fi found-sound-lover's delight,  and very fourth dimensional, a little mind movie. The Yoko that follows is very subdued vocalwise and subordinated to the typical Plastic-Band rhythm track (the same whoever it's playing behind), a wordless train blues, a very good one and a fine piece of dynamically propelled trance music too.

Inspired by the Rolling Stone article and the other thread, a GnR bootleg, "Unplugged." It's half '92 in Argentina, half '87 (CBGB's, I think). Amusing, I guess. Kind of.
