You’ve all got the Black Tambourine comp CD, right? It’s an essential purchase for fans of the early My Bloody Valentine guide to noise and strum. They were around between ‘89 and ‘91 and seem to have has influence on a myriad of artists which makes sense as they were rather good. Now they are back, older and wider.
My excitement was tempered by the fact that this is a double 7”’ of Ramones covers. I mean the Ramones are fine but further covers of their ‘work’ doesn’t exactly whet my whistle. That said it’s enjoyable stuff and the sound is remarkably similar to the sound the ‘Tambourine produced back in the ‘80s; dirty distorted guitars, Bobby Gillespie circa Jesus and Mary Chain drumming and wonderful slightly off key female vocals. Only closer ‘I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend’ strays from the formula slowing it down into a ballad like pace. Fuzzy and fun.
