Kent's Finest 25 Mar. 2014
By Steve Holtje - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl
Haven't heard of the oddly named 15-60-75? You're probably not from Ohio, and you're definitely not from Kent. Formed there in 1969 by lead vocalist Robert Kidney and saxophonist Terry Hynde (brother of Pretenders vocalist Chrissie), it created a strange and compelling amalgam of styles. Kidney doesn't sing so much as chant, or emphatically recite. There are not really any melodies, and the horn section, so often in other bands a sweetener, only adds acrid commentary. There's an obvious blues influence, but this is not tidy 12-bar blues, it's a primal drone that pulsates with dark energy, not least because of drummer David Robinson's angular beats.

This album, recorded in concert on June 16, 1975 at the Agora in Cleveland when they opened for Bob Marley, was their debut, released the following year. It was too weird -- even by the rapidly evolving standards of that era -- to grab major attention, but it inspired rabid fandom in Ohio (Pere Ubu vocalist David Thomas hyperbolically hailed it as "the only good album ever recorded by anyone," and put his money where his mouth was by reissuing it on CD on his Hearthen label). The occasion for this review is Exit Stencil's new two-LP expansion, with three previously unissued bonus tracks from the same era (the between-tracks comments by Kidney, left off the CD, are back).

It kicks off with the most famous track, "Animal Speaks," an ode to lust later covered by Golden Palominos (leader Anton Fier being a fellow Ohioan) with John Lydon AKA Johnny Rotten on lead vocals. The following track, "About the Eye Game," feels like a continuation of the same groove over which Hynde eventually sprays free-jazz sax skronk. And so it continues, including the sort-of title track, a cover of a blues song from 1957 by Cat Iron.

The bonus tracks make this edition worth buying even if you already have an earlier iteration of the album. Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love," seemingly a natural choice for this group, is the surprise, as it's just a studio duo of Robert and his multi-instrumentalist brother Jack, long an integral member of the band; here he plays harmonica. The other tracks are the full band in concert: the original "Drive" and Little Richard's "Keep-a-Knockin'." The sound's not quite as sterling as the rest of the concert tracks, but the slight flatness is no impediment to enjoyment.

This is a limited edition, so don't wait.
