THE SERPENTS, You have just been poisoned by The Serpents (1998, psych / avant-rock)


Why isn't this album the absolute masterpiece it could have been? Maybe the vocals... maybe useless tracks. I don't know, but be sure you'll find there an incredible mixture of folk, space rock, experimental tracks, somewhere between GODSPEED YOU MY BLACK EMPEROR, NURSE WITH WOUND, FAUST and the likes, and even maybe, BROADCAST. Too eclectic maybe?
Those who love GODSPEED may have been seduced by the kind of supergroup they are (how many members? 10?)... THE SERPENTS are an impressive list of more than 30 names! Jon Savage, who wrote so many books about punk rock, is one of them. I don't know the others.
It's not a surprise Julian Cope wrote something about them. Read his review here and download the album there.
Comments are always welcome, request and demands too!

Genial..Je l'ecoute actuellement, et j'ai du mal à en croire mes oreilles.
Es tu venu voir Andrew Liles de NWW hier aux Voutes ?

eh bien non, pas au courant, pas vu l'info... C'était bien? Quelqu'un a l'enregistrement?

Oui, sympa, mais ce qu'il a fait avec Berrocal c'était lourd. En solo, vraiment trippant, des sonorités qui rappelaient bcp NWW, mais prenant. Par contre Zenial, la première partie, trés barbante. Pour l'enregistrement je n'en ai aucune idée...
