Product Description

SIMIAN We Are Your Friends (2002 UK 12-track CD album including the single Never Be Alone picture sleeve in stickered jewel case CDSOUR065)

Amazon.co.uk

We Are Your Friends is a broader, beefier second effort from Manchester-based shambolic pop quartet Simian. The band's first album, Chemistry Is What We Are introduced the band's freewheeling, dreamy countryside psychedelia sound but fell just short of focusing it into a truly defining debut. But where We Are Your Friends remains inventive and thoughtful work, it's immediately clear that Simian no longer intend to write music for lazing in meadows. The opening "La Breeze" is a lurid explosion of psychosis-ridden Beach Boys harmonies and snare-drum clatters, its optimism beaming through like the noon sun. In fact, it's worth looking well below the retro-tinged vocals, because the band demonstrate a keen way with enterprising electronic production: "In Between" flitters and skitters with intriguing electronic insect chirrups, while "The Swarm" skilfully melds Kraftwerk-style synths and Aphex-inspired glitchwork into its traditional country-folk patchwork. Even when they're dark, Simian sound irrepressibly jaunty: "Ain't got a soul / Just a big black hole" trills singer Simon Lord on "Big Black Gun", as a fat analogue bassline bounces around like a beach ball. Don't be put off by that slightly imposing title: We Are Your Friends is very, very welcome. --Louis Pattison

Format: Audio CD
Chemistry Is What We Are suffered a little bit from being too whimsical and meandering - some absolutely stonking tracks got lost amongst effects-driven jams and moody soundscapes.
No danger of that here - We Are Your Friends is a big, phat, stomping (almost glam at times) rocking 12st-century workout. Petulant harmonies, old-skool computer sounds and just stupidly catchy choruses.

This is a great album and it is all kicked of by la breeze which is an explosion of disconcordant sound and it is fantastic! The album then slips in to a slightly more melodic mood like easrly simian and continues from there. A very good album to any fan of this style of music.

For those of you who, like me, LOVE the song from the new Peugeot 1007 advert (with black and white cartoons) then "La Breeze" is the song you're looking for. Personally, I bought the album just to get this impossible to find track.

I bought this after I had tracked down the music from the Peugeot Ad, and was more than pleasantly surprised. If there was any justice this would figure highly on anyone's list of classic albums. Apart from the, by now well known, opening track, which contains one of contemporary rock's defining moments when the lead vocal kicks in, I have to single out 'The Way I Live' as another song crying out to be part of rock's collective consciousness!! Yes, you can spot the influences on Simian's writing, but since when was popular music not influenced, however far back you care to go? Without a dud track on the entire album this should in the collection of anyone who professes to love geat music.
