Shiner - Lula Divinia

I'd not heard of these guys before, but they came up as a reccomendation on the Cave In Facebook fan group and I'm really enjoying it; I imagine @NancyJohnson is a fan

Played this ‘Album’ this morning for the first time in years.

Much derided by the Lydon purists when it came out (1986), but I absolutely loved it.

It was the first time I’d heard Steve Vai, so that was a bit of an eye opener.

(It was produced by Bill Laswell, who produced the Sly & Robbie album Language Barrier from a year earlier that I also loved at the time)

Again, it just felt completely different to anything else around at the time...

If you’re not aware of Album then it’s definitely worth a listen, and if you are aware but haven’t visited it in a while, then it’s definitely worth going back to!

Take it away, John..!

Land Of Hope And Glory (ha, ha) looks hectic on the trombone.

Superb album. Not (IMHO) as good as Metal Box or The Flowers of Romance but a cracker nonetheless. Ginger Baker, Ryuichi Sakamoto, all sorts of people on this record. It was recorded just before John McGeoch joined in the same year, which is a shame as I love his guitar playing.

Love it. 'Rise' is one of my all-time favourites. And the album's final track 'Ease' has some great work from Baker and Vai. Lydon's a very divisive character but when he's in this mood the results are quality.

That’s wonderful, Frank!

I used to live just off Seven Sisters Road so I wish I’d known of Ogmios back then...

Thank you so much, these have made my day, sir!

In turn they led me to John Smith ‘The Girl Chewing Gum, which in turn led me to John Smith ‘The Black Tower’, which in turn...

Cruising through Wanstead listening to this classic bassline 

 

Now i'm dancing around the living room in Southend! I'm sure* we've made this same Third World transaction before on this thread and I'm already looking forward to the next time!

*as sure as I am that at 0:40 on Now That We've Found Love he sings Make that a shït, make that a shït, make that a shït, make that a shït, make that a shït, shït, shït, shït, all over the place I say and later on he's going to spread it all over the land, marvellous. Still, it does contain the greatest lyric ever written at 1:12...

I said music, whoooah, yeaaaah.
