STEAMING COILS-BREADED, LP/CD, 1990 (CD)/1994 (LP) (RECORDED: 1988), USA





The next installment in my series of Steaming Coils posts and the final one of their works to gain release, Breaded is such a unimpeachable delight, I actually ended up putting out a vinyl reissue of this album myself, the only time I've ever released the work of a party other than my own band. Extraordinary as it was, their prior release, The Tarkington Table, could be seen as something of a transitional work, the cracked art pop genius of it's songform splendors sometimes dancing an uneasy tango with interventions of loose-limbed semi-improvised jams. In many respects, Breaded seems like the culmination of Laner and Chrisman's efforts, each song locating the perfect tension between warped psychedelic song craft and wayward weirdity while at the same time highlighting what an truly affecting vocalist Chrisman can be. Each song here seems to be literally bursting at the seams with inspired structural conceits, with psychotropic stratagems lacquered onto each morsel of pop goodness here in a completely effortless and unforced fashion. Featuring guest appearances from a vast array of L.A. underground music movers (Grigsby, Johnston and Emily Hay from The Motor Totemist Guild, Don Bolles of The Germs and L.A.F.M.S. magus Tom Recchion among them), this is the product of artists in complete command of an audaciously advanced vocabulary and giddy with the realization that they're creating an album for the ages, even if no one else seemed cognizant of it at the time.

I know this is not post related but you asked for comments and requests right?..

First up absolute dream of a blog, all that NWW list stuff is fantastic!- would be great to see a blog with every single record (i'll dream on).

Secondly, and still in regard to the NWW list. Do you have the Chillum's s/t? I missed pound for a brown's post and am still kicking myself! I have tried requesting it there, but have had no luck. Can you help?

Keep up the fantastic work.

...and why is it that the several minutes worth of the sound of the crumpling of a soda can (if that's indeed what it is) at the end of side 1 is one of the most perfect moments ever put on vinyl?

Found this at a used record shop last year for five bucks (170/1000) and it blew me away- I couldn't understand why no one had heard of this masterpiece!

out of curiosity , is this a vinyl conversion or did you rip from the cd?

Whatever happened to Don Bolles and the Doctor Bronner's fiasco?

That was mightily weird of the fuzz to eff around with Don like that.

All of the charges against Don were dropped . Dr. Bronner's very publicly came to his defense

Gosub.

There's some Omit at my blog and I can up other stuff if you like. I have pretty much all of it.

The Gosub Routine said...

that's great mate!

I did try some Omit files with massmirror links, but they were all gone ('file not found!).

I'll pop back later tonight and throughout the week though...

P.S:-i have a compilation track from '97 called 'the slow drag of disregard'?

Cheers!

Baz.
