PATRICK BURKE-SILENCE AND TIMING, LP, 1981, USA


This fantastic and very obscure private press oddity is a solo outing from a member of the cult post punk unit Parasites Of The Western World. Silence And Timing may refrain from some of the balls out avant rock maneuvers heard on POTWW's recently reissued album on Destijl, but it's a knockout in its own less overt way; Burke's idiomatic boundary blur in this instance being between dreamy psych and melancholic post punk, with passing overtones of both Brian Sands and Gignoux's The Broadway Boys, though this has got a darker overall cast than either of those.

This looks really interesting. I'm visiting for the first time. Thanks.

I'm a minute into first tune, and it is effin great. It reminds me of stuff, but I can't quite put my finger on it. Kind of like Big Star mixed with Bowie. In an hour I'll have a better comparison. Thanks again.

I have a request I guess only could fulfill: The 7" EP "Just Ask Nick Ayling" including "I ate my arm" by Pop Parker. Any chance?

Buna Seara!
Eu sunt Vlad, unul dintre membri Radio Whisper - un radio antimanele dedicat bloggerilor şi nu numai.
Am găsit întâmplător blogul tău, am citit câteva articole şi nu am vrut să ies înainte să te felicit – mi-a plăcut mult ce am găsit aici. Am fost atras de subiectele interesante si de originalitatea articolelor. Felicitari ! Noi promovăm la radio diferite articole ale bloggerilor, iar azi am promovat un articol de-al tău; am specificat sursa articolului şi am deschis şi un subiect pe baza acestuia. Dacă doresti, poţi să ne recomanzi orice articol, iar noi îl vom promova.
Ne-ar face plăcere să ştim că ai dori să ne susţii în acest proiect de radio şi să accepţi o eventuală colaborare.
M-am gândit aşadar să vin cu o propunere:

Avem şi câteva emisiuni, ştiri etc. Ne-am propus să realizăm un proiect mare, iar pentru asta avem nevoie de susţinerea şi ajutorul tău şi al celorlalţi colegi bloggeri. Dorim să creăm o echipă cât mai complexă de oameni cu un talent aparte şi m-am gândit că poate ai vrea sa ni te alături şi să colaborăm (binenţeles, pe unul dintre domeniile care îţi place). Dorim de asemenea să îţi acordăm un scurt interviu. Pentru noi sunt importante ideile şi modul de a gândi al bloggerilor şi al ascultatorilor noştri.
Îti multumesc pentru timpul acordat, iar acum îti propun sa adaugi linkul sau bannerul nostru pe blogul tău şi să ne dai add la id-ul asculta.whisper sau un e-mail, tot la asculta.whisper@yahoo.com, pentru a discuta mai multe.

The vocals are a bit Eric Clapton-ish at times, but the music itself is incredibly solid... Reminds me a bit of 70s library music at times. Thanks for uploading this!

yo mutant sounds

just passing through your superb blog to put in a request, would you have access to Laser Pace's "Granfalloon" album at all??

all i have heard is a snippet of the track "Avatar" and it has wet my whistle so to speak, i'd dearly like to hear it all before deciding if i'll buy it or not........

i also think other members of your readership may well be as interested as i.........

nice one, be good

Well I'm on about track 6 of the album and have decided it's a flippin masterpiece. Completely unique. Strange and hazy. A bit like classic mid 70s Eno but with a mad new wave psych pop bent. Essential stuff.
Love the website by the way.
