4.0 out of 5 stars Metalheads from Leeds?, 15 Mar. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Half-Life (Audio CD)
This was the first record I bought by the Pale Saints and really couldn't stop playing it for weeks. This was back in 1990--well over ten years ago, and you know what, it's still played. The music apparently is not a teenage flirtation but the PS have stood the test of time--more so than the Telescopes, Ride and Lush. The Pale Saints borrowed the Wedding Present's producer Chris Allison (I think this is the name) for four-tracks (I hear the 12" has the creepy "The Colour of the Sky") of great songs, all different from one another, by the rights of song structure, but same in its energy and rawness. The track "Half-Life Remembered" has guitar help from local Leeds guitarist Ashley of Edsel Auctioneer, and still remains a classic jaded endeavor of rhythm, speed and discipline. Following the track, "Baby Maker" is thrashed out chorus-and-distortion and stop-and-go time. "Two Sick Sisters" is lesser Pale Saints, and sounds like the music you hear "out there" with a 102 fever; watching avant stop-animation from Eastern Europe is what the music should be made to. All things end in "Revelation," a classic song in schizo-guitar sound and wonderful percussion work by Chris Cooper (what a wonderful musician he is--real drumming always displaying use of poly-rhythms, fills, etc.) ... Seek out the single that "no one would like" by the Tintwistle Brass Band (?) that came with the album "In Ribbons" which has Salvation Army style conversativeness but nevertheless a wonderful 7".
