Just in case anyone thinks that Primal Scream are typified by their modern incarnation, they should be aware that 'Velocity Girl' is a classic piece of jangly guitar pop. There's some fine stuff on that compilation, ny top five being:

Big Flame - Why Popstars Can't Dance
Half Man Half Biscuit - Dukla Prague Away Kit
Primal Scream - Velocity Girl
Soup Dragons - Whole Wide World
Age Of Chance - Bible Of The Beats

sweet, i've always wanted to heat the tape/things like it.

sun city girl 10.11.2006 02:04 AM

i just love C-86...

and 'velocity girl' is probably the second best thing primal scream ever did, the best being obviously 'shoot speed/kill light'.

Any word on whether "C81" will be reissued on CD? That was a better comp as far as quality and variety of bands.

Funny that the "C86" sound became tantamount for a while to a genre or category, and yet it had so little resemblance to the Ron Johnson bands on the comp.

Now that would be sweet. I only ever got to hear that tape once, and it was a pretty fucked-up copy, but I remember it being pretty amazing to my young and innocent ears.

From Wikipedia:

The NME C81 Cassette was given away with the British magazine New Musical Express in 1981 and released in conjunction with the record label Rough Trade. Intended to mark the first 5 years of the independent label movement in the UK record industry and Rough Trade itself, it was the first in a series of many cassette releases from the paper. Publishing a tape was also an acknowledgement of the flourishing self published cassette culture of the time that the NME had been supporting in its short lived Garageland column.

The NME were overwhelmed by the demand for the tape as over 30,000 readers sent off 1.50 for a set of 24 remarkably diverse tracks ranging from jazz (James Blood Ulmer), poetry (John Cooper Clarke), ska (The Beat) and 'Canterbury Scene' (Robert Wyatt). Simon Reynolds called it "post punk's swan song" noting the appearance of 3 acts from Scottish independent label Postcard and the emerging new pop tendency of bands like Aztec Camera and Scritti Politti alongside post-punk luminaries as Cabaret Voltaire, Subway Sect, Red Crayola and The Raincoats.

Side one
"The "Sweetest Girl"" – Scritti Politti
"Twist and Crawl Dub" – The Beat
"Misery Goats" – Pere Ubu
"7,000 Names of Wah!" – Wah! Heat
"Blue Boy" – Orange Juice
"Raising the Count" – Cabaret Voltaire
"Kebab Traume Live" – D.A.F
"Bare Pork" – Furious Pig
"Raquel" – The Specials
"I Look Alone" – Buzzcocks
"Fanfare in the Garden" – Essential Logic
"Born Again Cretin" – Robert Wyatt

Side two
"Shouting Out Loud" – The Raincoats
"Endless Soul" – Josef K
"Low Profile" – The Blue Orchids
"Red Nettle" – Virgin Prunes
"We Could Send Letters" – Aztec Camera
"Milkmaid" – Red Crayola
"Don't Get in My Way" – Linx
"The Day My Pad Went Mad" – The Massed Carnaby St John Cooper Clarkes
"Jazz Is the Teacher, Funk Is the Preacher" – James Blood Ulmer
"Close to Home" – Ian Dury

PAULYBEE2656 01.03.2009 05:29 AM

yeah there is a few blogs with these posted on it.. all brilliant..

on a similar vein, i just picked up an anthology of crispy ambulance and talulah gosh..... fucking brilliant albums!

terminal pharmacy 01.03.2009 03:45 PM

is this a new thread and the return of sonicl??? unfortunately those comps as far as i am aware never made it to australian shores, and news agencies here had the habit for a long time of taking all those promo things off of the magazines.
