Beefeater - Plays For Lovers!
Beefeater - Plays For Lovers
15 tracks with Positive Mental Attitude from these dudes who approach the sound & lyrics in a sensitive and moody way... always made me think of a sumthin' between Bad Brains, Victims Family & Minutemen somehow...
Check backcover for tracklist.
Intense 1st album ripped from vinyl and encoded with MPC~278kbs. Get Foobar free player to play Musepack files, otherwise wait until I re-encode it to Mp3. (soon to come)
Biography by Andy Kellman:
Washington, D.C.'s Beefeater was formed in 1984 by vocalist Thomas Squip (the former drummer in Red C), guitarist Fred “Not Sonic Smith, bassist Dug E. Bird, and drummer Bruce Atchley Taylor.
Plays for Lovers, the band's debut album, was released in 1985 on the Dischord label. Two years passed until the band's follow up and final album, House Burning Down. Prior to its recording, Taylor departed and was replaced by Kenny Craun.
The band split several months before the album's release, and Squip and Bird went on to Fidelity Jones.
Dischord combined both Beefeater albums for release on CD in 1992, and added a pair of bonus tracks.
