Five Or Six - Cántame Esa Canción Que Dice, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah LP


Spanish label Edigsa seemed to release records for the Spanish audience, especially from the Cherry Red label as well as bands like Joy Division.
This album of Five Or Six is more than that. Instead of chosing already released recordings, Five Or Six made a compilation of mostly unreleased stuff. 'Another Reason' already appeared on the debut 7", 'Polar Exposure' on the mini-album of the same name, as well as 'Lost Cause'. 'Exhibit A' appeared on the 'A Thriving And Happy Land' but this version here is live.
All the other tracks never appeared on other recordings and there are some really good ones like 'Chalk Circle' with female vocals of Julia Gilbert.
Five Or Six are one of my favourite experimental wave bands from that period. I wonder how many more recordings they did that are never released.

Let's hope that Cherry Red does a proper reissue of Five Or Six in the future.

Hi, I just bought this very record this morning. Searching for some info, I reached this blog. Congrats, and read you from now on.

Hello, your blog is great. I really appreciate the amount of work you do to save these treasures from obscurity. I've a question: can you also post 'Polar Exposure' mini-lp and 'Another Reason' 7" and 'Four from Five or Six' 12" too? It'd would be great. Thanx for your amazing blog again.

Curious Guy said...

Per23, you can find the 'Polar Exposure' in my archives. Don't have the 'Another Reason' 7" but I do have the 'Four From' 12".

per23 said...

Yes, I did find 'Polar Exposure' on your blog and on my PC as well. Stupid me. ;-) Do you have plans for putting 'Four From' up on your blog?

hmm, i just finished listening to this...is it possible that Death in Vegas stole the 'Another Reason' melody for their famous 'Dirge' song? it seems to me the resemblance is striking!

Hey Curious,

Could you consider doing me a massive favour & re-up this LP at some point? I'd really appreciate it, I've been listening to Five Or Six's other stuff an awful lot recently (was only familiar with "Portrait" for a LONG time) & this is the only thing I've not heard...

Hope you can help, & thanks!

Curious Guy said...

I'll try to re-up this weekend. Maybe I'll re-rip the record if I can find it easily.

NOVEMBERER said...

Cheers, would really appreciate it!

Curious Guy said...

Novemberer, new link is added. Enjoy!
