International Rescue is almost propagandist in its revisionism-- Swell Maps never sounded more like a real band. There should be a warning label affixed to this album to even the odds of people purchasing additional material: "Absolutely the best record available by Swell Maps." Active during the post-punk heaven that brought us Public Image Ltd., the Raincoats and just about everything else that's still worth listening to, this band recorded some great songs and easily wasted as much tape.
Swell Maps were an inspiration for punk fans that didn't have a problem with rock n' roll posturing. Where "Secret Island" obviously gave Sonic Youth and R.E.M. something to gnaw on, "Ripped and Torn" is pure rock drivel; its saving grace-- like most music from the period-- is that it's played so ineptly...
Review on Life in the Vinyl Lane
Une belle compile préparée par Nikki Sudden lui-même, alors attendez-vous à la crème des Swell Maps avec quelques raretés ajoutées.
Pas de chronique aujourd'hui, death bürger est endeuillé alors c'est avec le cœur lourd qu'il tente de penser positif, témoin ce disque de chez ALIVE Records. Le prochain aussi d'ailleurs.
Same Rip specs as usual, now realize real shocks demand international rescue!
