5.0 out of 5 stars Hollywood Holiday Revisited, 9 Aug 2011
This review is from: Hollywood Holiday Revisited (Audio CD)
True West blazed a brief path through the Paisley Underground of the 80s - an E.P. and 2 albums and gone. The item under review contains all the material from the E.P. and the first album plus additional tracks released in Europe under the title "Hollywood Holiday" and three bonus tracks. The earlier material contains a killer version of the Floyd's "Lucifer Sam" one of the 2 best cover versions ever. The rest is mainly high class melodic jangle pop with some killer guitars from Richard McGrath and Russ Tolman. Gavin Blair is a fine vocalist, and the late Kevin Staydohar on bass and Jozef Becker on drums (later of Thin White Rope fame) form an ace rhythm section. They appear to have re-surfaced live in 2009 (see Amazon.com) but no new tunes yet. Go to Amazon.com to listen to samples. Buy, listen, learn, love. You need this band, truly you do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paisley Underground, 11 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hollywood Holiday Revisited (Audio CD)
As a fan of the Paisley Underground sound it was long overdue buying this CD. It consists of a mini LP called Hollywood Holiday, the full length LP Drifters and three tracks titled the Verlaine Demos - these were produced by Tom Verlaine. They are a 1980's new wavish American guitar band as you would expect. The music is good but suffers from extremely low budget production. Still recommended for lovers of this genre.
