Originally released in 1984, Songs from Suicide Bridge is highly overdue for a vinyl reissue. Remastered from the original tapes, the minimalist folk-rock of David Kauffman & Eric Caboor sounds fresh as ever. Their desolate sound comes to its full potential like never before on this 2x45rpm LP, including the necessary exclusive interview and never-before released pictures.

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 08 May 2015

Here’s a cautionary tale. Back in 1984 David Kauffman and Eric Caboor were making lonesome sad and beautiful songs which every single record label ignored in favour of the bright synth pop and new wave of the day. They decided as a kind of fuck you to the industry to collect all their bleakest songs, put them on one LP and self release. Not many people were interested.

Listening to it now on this superb Lights in the Attic re-issue it sounds waaaaay ahead of it’s time. Although there are hints of the melancholic ‘60’s troubadors such as Paul Simon and Tim Hardin, really it predates years the slow-core movement led by the likes of Red House Painters. ‘One More Day’ with it’s fingerpicking and depressed John Denver stylings sounds very similar to a lot of the music Mark Kozelek was making around the time of ‘Ocean Beach’.‘Tinsel Town’ has a gruff Bruce Springsteen-ish delivery in the husky vocals but has a naked sparse sound that is left even of Springsteens own hauntingly skeletal ‘Nebraska’ whilst opener ‘Kiss Another Day Goodbye’ is chillingly muffled vocal sitting somewhere between the blue moods of Spain and the early bleak Bon Iver.

Listen to it and spare a thought for those artists who seek their own path and are continually ignored in favour of the latest flavour of the month. Hopefully like David Kauffman and Eric Caboor their time will eventually come.
