La Societe Des Timides A La Parade Des Oiseaux / La STPO - Le Combat Occulte Le Combat Occulte
Prog Used - LP MT047A Beta-Lactam Ring
Limited 2005 180gm Original With Die Cut Custom Inner Sleeve. Vinyl Appears Unplayed. “It's Strange To Think That A Score Of Years Ago The World Was Just Emerging From The Last Of Its New Wave Haze, Only To Enter A Brave New Era Of Over Produced, Digitally Recorded Schlock. La STPO Was Borne Into This Miasma Of Mediocrity With Knives Out. They Have Remained Bastions Of Outré Ever Since Their Bloodied Birth. Vive La STPO! To Celebrate Two Decades Of One Of The Finest, Most Fractured & Indefatigable European Avant Post Punk Bands, Blrr Has Nailed Together This 11 Track Retrospective Of 7300 Days In The Life Of La STPO. & Rather Than Trying To Shape This Into Some Sort Of "Best Of" Or "Greatest Hits," Blrr & La STPO Have Done The Reverse By Leaning More Heavily In On The Group's More Exploratory Moments. This Also Makes For A Better Album That, In Its Own Skewed Way, Fits Together As If All Recorded In The Same Session. As Presented Here, La STPO Are Truly Rock In Opposition. Unlike Their Zeuhl Spewing Forbears, However, STPO Are Not Trying To Fuse Jazz & Rock. Their Rock Is In Opposition Of All Things Safely Established, Including Rock In Opposition. Jagged & Bleated Arrangements With Familiar Rock Instrumentation Clash To Form Screaming, Dada-Pregnant, Contorted Punk Concertos. Oddly Timed & Full Of Changes, This Is Music To Fall Down Escalators To. Sometimes This Is Music To Lay At The Bottom Of Escalators To. Just As Your Fingers Begin To Snap, STPO Leaps Off The Page Into A Droning Menace. A Cadence Of Broken Buzzsaw Guitar Hums Ejaculate Into Soft & Staggering Staccato Strings. La STPO's Propensity For Quiet Tension Gives The Tumult Of Their Caterwauls That Much More Weight. The Vocalist Is As Likely To Coo & Chirp As He Is To Chant & Caw. Reeds, Vibes & Trumpets Walk Freely With The Rest, Making This As Dynamic & Interesting A Record As One Could Hope For In This Hopelessly Metering Post Rock Era.” – BLR Records... more details
 
La Societe Des Timides A La Parade Des Oiseaux / La STPO - Slices Of Thrown Time Slices Of Thrown Time
Prog Used - LP MT074 Beta-Lactam Ring
Hard To Find, Limited Edition (325 Copies) Heavy Vinyl Original With Custom Inner Sleeve. The Vinyl Appears Glossy, Unplayed. Very Light Crease On The Front Cover Does Not Go Through To The Back Cover. “Slices Of Throw Time Is Like A Van Der Graaf Arc Between The Bombast Of Blurt/Ex/Dog Faced Hermans/Contortions/Birthday Party And The Subtle, Avant-Composerly Moments Of Henry Cow/This Heat/Univers Zero/Faust. The Punchy Rhythm Section, Abetted By The Squawky Horns, Makes For A Music To Which One Can Truly Contort. LA STPO's Musical Muscle, However, Is Always Backed Up By Solid Jazz/Classical Informed Chops That Can And Will Chop Any Lesser Outfit Into Nothing More Than A Pile Of Over-Loud Rock And Roll Dust.” – Beta-Lactam... more details
