Dia G 11.04.10 (1) - The Flaming Lips - Telepathic Surgery (1989 US)

Edicion especial olvidadiza bisemanal
By Dr. Funk


The Flaming Lips
"Telepathic Surgery
"

Extract from Wikipedia:
Telepathic Surgery is the third studio album by The Flaming Lips, released in 1989. Beginning life as a concept album, the band initially set out to create a thirty minute sound collage. The plan was later scrapped; however, the remnants of this original idea are evident within the album's loose, meandering structure and the epic "Hell's Angel's Cracker Factory". The Album is named after a line from the Flaming Lips song "Chrome Plated Suicide".

"Chrome Plated Suicide" stands out as one of the group's most accomplished early recordings, possibly due to being based on Guns N' Roses' critically-acclaimed "Sweet Child o' Mine". Sub Pop asked the group to record "Drug Machine in Heaven" for their 'single of the month' series. It was retitled as "Drug Machine" and is the group's first official single. The 'A-side' was backed with "Strychnine/What's So Funny (About Peace, Love and Understanding)" a cover of both "Strychnine" by The Sonics and Peace, Love, and Understanding by Nick Lowe but based on the Elvis Costello and the Attractions cover version.

Similar to many albums of its time, the CD release of Telepathic Surgery had a track listing differing from its LP release due to the time restraints of a single vinyl LP. Extra tracks on CD versions were "Fryin' Up" and "Hell's Angel's Cracker Factory" which are included in-between "Miracle on 42nd Street and "U.F.O. Story".

The album was reissued and remastered as part of the Finally the Punk Rockers Are Taking Acid, it included the CD extra tracks but "Hell's Angels Cracker Factory" was amended to just over three minutes in length.

Limited edition vinyl-only reissue
Telepathic Surgery was reissued in 2005 on blue vinyl. The reissue is on 3 sides and contains the bonus track "Hell's Angels Cracker Factory", a 23 minute song with backward vocals and long guitar solos. The cover depicts promotional photos including the band standing in front of a staged fatal car crash. The inside sleeve contains a story about the early Lips by Michael Ivins, the bassist and founding member of the Flaming Lips.

Comentario.
Ellos mismos describieron perfectamente su sonido en la recopilación "Finally the Punk Rockers Are Taking Acid": Punk psicodélico. Mala leche, guitarrazos de infarto, experimentación sonora y todo lo que se puede esperar de la unión de dos generos tan dispares por la banda con los titulos de canción más raros que leeras jamás. Los primeros tiempos de esta banda son imprescindibles, y aqui os traigo el 3er disco de estudio, no os perdais la mega-suite "Hell's Angel's Cracker Factory". Que lo disfruteis.

Ripeado de vinilo (Reedicion de 2005) a FLAC durante su primera escucha. Artwork completo.

Buenos días, Galleteros todos.
Se agradece el paseo dominical por este DiscoExpress Virtual.
Esta vez me voy a hacer con los de la Premiata para ver las diferencias de edición.
Y voy a probar el sonido de los franchutes LAZULI, a los que no tengo el gusto de haber escuchado antes, a ver qué sonido raro es ese que practican.
Muchas gracias una vez más, Julio, eres muy amable, es encomiable tu constante aporte.
Un saludo, AL Abordajeeee!!!!

Excelente idea, apreciado Julio, la de poner los dos discos de la PFM en la misma bandeja de galletas. Los dos son absolutamente necesarios y vitales, sobre todo la versión italiana de un álbum que en su día nos llegó en inglés. "Photos of Ghost", y también "The World became the World", fueron producidos para el mercado anglosajón, pero lo suyo es oir a los Premiata en delicioso italiano. La mayor diferencia se encuentra en la letra e intención de temas como "Just Look Away" - "Dolcissima Maria".

Lo dicho, genial. Lástima que lo tengo todoooo. Así que me dedicaré a los franceses estos, que tienen muy buena pinta.

Abrazos.

Julio-BCN
