they really are a stunning band arent they? lets talk about them in this thread
I liked that very much. What else should i check out?
it is what got me into them though
The Night is my favourite one of theirs but they just have a perfect sound in everything they do.
(goes to Amazon)
is that it's dominated by how good that track is, one of their others might be a better starting point. Anyone else care to suggest where to begin with em?
...I picked it up a few months ago and I kinda felt that way on first couple of listens. Loving it as a whole album now though, very solid track-by-track! Hmmm...think I'm gonna go for "Yes" next.
always meant to give them a listen, now I am, glad I did
Definitely hear a bit of Tindersticks in there.
All the albums are great, but for some reason I always think of Yes as the one with the hits on it. Here's SuperSex ft some nice double sax:
Like Swimming (the album after) was part-recorded at Prince's studio, and it shows!
Sandman's previous band Treat Her Right are also awesome - 2 songwriters/singers. Pretty different from Morphine but with similar atmospheres. I Think She Likes Me was their 'hit':
I'm a little jealous of you if you've not got all the records... so much to discover. Even the b-sides collection is top notch. Lovely people too the one time I met them.
It's between The Night and Cure for Pain as a tie for my favourite. They're a hard listen when/if you're heartbroken, more than anyone else I think. But they're worth it.
guy from Morphine plays sax on this Don Lennon song
never really listened to them
said that Morphine were "one of the sexiest bands around."
"Cure For Pain" is my fav album by them, I love that sax solo in "Candy" .
I got into them through MTV's Alternative Nation they played Early To Bed
..the guy was blowing two saxes simultaneously. having not yet heard of rahsaan roland kirk, i found this to be a fascinating display.
Always loved that tune.
tell me, how good are 'Like Swimming' and 'The Night'?
and The Night has been mentioned by a couple of folk further up as contender for best album.
I'm not really a saxophone man, but Morphine are definite exception. Skronk.
Can I replace the double sax stuff with two kazoos?
i reckon you could do a bang on Sandman, actually.
