Albertos snuffing out their audience - (Don't Care collection)ALBERTO Y LOS TRIOS PARANOIAS
are sailing high these days on the success of their macabre, albeit humorous musical Sleak!, so why not have a vinyl artifact to go along with it? Well now you have one. It's the "Snuff Rock" EP and features four songs from Sleak! In the grooves are "Kill," "Gobbin On Life," "Snuffin' Like That," and the reggae track "Snuffin' In Babylon." It was produced under the watchful eye of Nick Lowe and released on Stiff Records. Besides being a document of the highlights of a successful stage show, it's one of the funniest and most on-the-mark parodies of punk rock that's been done.
Patti Smith original - (?)patti smith's original April 76 version of "Gloria" is reissued as a 12" single, with her live version of "My Generation" on the flip. It's the same single they issued last year with the exception that the lyrics are complete and unedited. The over-cautious managers at EMI had it edited when they distributed Arista. New distributor, new version. It's available now in a 12" format only.
PATTI SMITH: Gloria
(Arista 135).
This is what happens when you fall off a stage and break your neck: your record company gets stuck for new product and pushes out 12-inch pressings of old singles. She's a rare and precious talent, and I love this, from the slowburn blankverse intro to the storming climax, but there can't be many potential buyers who aren't already familiar with it. But Patti fans will want it for the flip, which has that amazing live versioi of 'My Generation featuring John Cale, but this time in it's uncensored form. Incidentally, this record arrived in a scruffy brown paper bag. Very street, very ethnic, but speaking as a bourgeois materialist I 'd have preferred a glossy picture sleeve.
