Subject: Western Family

I'm completely with Matthew Fogel on this one: it Rocks. I didn't see
them on the Condition Blue tour as they temporarily abandoned the UK, but
Western Family was a revelation; okay, so the first few tracks sound like
they were recorded inside someone's old welly, and the crisper, poppier
songs don't work so well (have I said this before?), but the immense slow
paced ones work magnificently: Sister Death, Shirley Maclain and Racheland
especially. The only slight disappointment was that Love Bus sounded thin
and tinny in comparison: some of the stuff like Killed Out needed the
guitars cranking up a whole lot louder. They've stuck to the Western
Family sound in recent shows (certainly the ?august 1994 London Borderline
gig was very loud and noisy), so I maybe it'll have found its way onto the
latest waxing.

Okay, so I'm really just a closet heavy-metal man...


(ps: would love to hear the undamaged version of Western Family, but I
don't have a DAT player.)
