Product Description

Product Description

In 2008 a giant Schnauser called Philippe won `best in show' at Crufts. In 2010, a Bristol-based trio called Schnauser are in the running for the `best band in Britain' garlands - and that's without having to bribe the judges, tantalise them with tawdry sexual favours or threaten them with a savaging from Big Philippe and his beefy mates. All that is required to seal the deal is a listen to Schnauser's second album, The Sound Of Meat - a brand-new set of 11 startling songs tackling a variety of vexatious topics including the inglorious fall and inexorable rise of Noel Edmonds, Steven Spielberg's lachrymose remake of War of The Worlds, the dualistic nature of a brace of unsettling twins and the fleeting tribulations of a celebrity TV vagrant.

Who knew there was a place where wry cynicism, disillusioned misanthropy and radiant, sunburst optimism could meet and swap phone numbers? Schnauser's acidulous worldview is delivered on a dazzling, hyper-melodic raft of vertiginous chord changes, pealing high harmonies and deftly juggled time signatures. Their restless and exploratory sound palette utilises Leslie speakers, 12-string guitars, retro keyboards, fuzz bass, strings, brass, Stylophone and melodica, reflecting a generous screed of influences including late `60s British psychedelia, early `70s melancholic US pop, a pinch of US new wave (a la CBGB in `77)... and lots of movies. Schnauser's first CD, Kill All Humans, was released in 2005.

Review

A failsafe combination of melodious, inventive songwriting, energetically airtight musicianship, neo-psych bendiness and an irrepressible classic pop sensibility. -- Record Collector

A perfect blend of psychedelic, folk and baroque rock influences (The Beatles, Todd Rundgren, Syd Barrett, XTC and The Who). -- Powerpopaholic

Gently demented, melodic psych pop tunes from the neighboring universe to Robyn Hitchcock.
-- The Big Takeover

Inventive, melodic, otherworldly, at the cutting edge of psych rock. -- Phil Jackson, Zeitgeist.

Schnauser are a trio from Bristol who smear flip pop-cultural analysis over Beach Boys harmonies. -- The Sunday Times

Swirly 60s psych-pop; bell-bottomed guitars, dippy surrealist wordplay... a kaleidoscope throwing gloopy projections onto everyone's faces. -- Venue

The best thing I've heard all year, by a devastating margin.
-- Marco Rossi, Dorset Echo.

This has to be one of the best bands I have heard, period. Spread the Schnauser. -- Sugar Puppies, Download.com

If you've ever found yourself wishing that, just once, a contemporary band would bowl along and shock the trews off of you with every unexpected chord change, delight you with the uncommon breadth of their seamlessly-integrated influences and vindicate you with the cynical common sense of their bleakly witty worldview, Schnauser are your saviours. The Sound of Meat follows 2005's uncanny debut Kill All Humans and proves itself to be inarguably worth the wait within 20 seconds of its breezily dismissive opener, 'Cosmic Ordering Service'. Straight away, Schnauser set out their characteristic stall: a failsafe combination of melodious, inventive songwriting, energetically airtight musicianship, neo-psych bendiness and an irrepressible classic pop sensibility which coats the kinks in those complex compositions. Indeed, for all of its tempo twists and trenchant turns, The Sound of Meat boasts more hooks than the closing scenes of The Fog: the sarky sunshine pop of 'Everythings is Nice', the baroque prettiness of the celeb-baiting 'Homeless', the persuasively nodding gait of 'Twins of Evil' and the queasy tunefulness of the instrumental 'I Couldn't F*** a Gorilla'. Be sure not to overlook hidden track 'You're The Greatest Girl I've Ever Seen': diseased supperclub jazz worthy of Supersister.

Bearing comparison in some songs with XTC, Schnauser is a band that never takes itself too seriously and displays not only great musicianship but the knack of putting together an album that really flows. They sound like a perfectly preserved psych band from the 60s on amazing songs like `Nobody Loves Me' and the tongue in cheek `World of Whimsy". The arrangement on `I Wuv You Mommy' demonstrates the calibre of this band. I'm sure the likes of 10CC would have proud to have made a record like this dig the CSN vocal harmonies as well but it's the bass playing and drumming that blows you away in an ending that is more suggestive of The Beach Boys.

There really isn't a weakness on this incredibly good album and the lyrics will make you smile as on `Last One Picked' (`and it's making me sick') with its great piano and Beatles influences. By coincidence its catalogue number is SMILE40.
