This was an extraordinary piece of work for an emerging band, the first of a number of Tindersticks classics and with the addition of the bonus disc this is a very satisfactory purchase
Strings, piano, brass and all manner of instruments plus Stuart Staples voice combine to make Tindersticks what they are, at worst a late night working men’s establishment/cruise ship combo, with the voice of Vic Reeves club singer (alright it’s a cheap shot, really the guy has one of those fantastically original voices), at best a band that sum up the atmosphere of a smoky evening in a city bar, capable of tugging your heartstrings in a hundred different directions. True they may be an acquired taste but over the last twelve years or so they have produced some fine records with this as their pinnacle.
Once you come to terms with the melancholy subject matter of many of the songs you soon realise how accomplished the lyrics and musical accompaniment is; the lazy drawl of ‘nectar’ contrasting with its up tempo strings lures you in, ‘blood’ is understated and sublime, ‘city sickness’ is slick and was obvious single material, whereas ‘patchwork’ and ‘the not knowing' are simply beautiful. Added to this the rage of ‘Jism’ which builds to crescendo and ‘the drunk tank’ which is both poignant and moving, it all comes together as a fine collection of songs.Read more ›
The album unfolds through tales of love and life in the modern world and particularly the experiences of a 'new age' twenty-something male. The singer untagles his life through this series of ballads, rants and intospections, some from his point of view and others from the point of the observer.
Never superficial and increadibly real, the tindersticks revel in their own misery. For them it is a cathartic process, facing the downfalls of life and love, growing from experience, they never bitch and use their music as s childish vehicle for a jibe at another, as a lesser artist would.
This album is increadibly rich and will be one you shall return to time and time again. and if the baroque closer 'not knowing' doesn't get you smiling then you need to listen to more music.
It is fascinating to see a popular band in the mid-ninties producing such raw material, amidst the craze of brit-pop like the velvet underground before them. This was the start of an amazing career that producedseveral other albums as credible as this fantasic debut
