Featured The Manhattan Love Suicides Release:
Dandelion Radio Session
If you thought you'd heard the last of The Manhattan Love Suicides after they split in July 2009, you'd be almost right. However, there's just one more thing left to release—and this is it. The Manhattan Love Suicides recorded a 6 track radio session for Dandelion Radio over Easter weekend last year which has now been fully mastered and is out on Odd Box Records.
The session captures the band at the end of the road, but still in full throttle fuzzed up mode. We have a couple of exclusive tracks here — "Time Enough At Last" , which is another fine example of the band's chugging, Mary Chain inspired feedback drenched pop, and a brilliant cover of The Velvet Underground's obscure "I'm Not A Young Man Anymore" which clocks in at around the 7 minute mark, never letting up for a single second in a full on noise assault. Also to be found here are 2 lovely acoustic takes on Manhattan Love Suicides tracks "Veronica" and "Things You've Never Done". These 2 tracks, in particular, take on a certain sadness now, as we know that only a few weeks later, the band decided to call it a day.
The CD includes the full stereo version of the radio session, plus the mono mix for all you sonic junkies out there. The mono version of the session blasts the tracks at you with full force, and is included for those of you who like their Manhattan Love Suicides served up with that extra nasty sounding, lo-fi edge.
