Blissed Out Fatalists - s/t LP


Interesting album of this L.A. band on Fourwaycross label Motiv Communications. The core of the band is Nicolas Greene and Jeffrey Poe, both ex-members of Blue Daisies who released an album called 'Wilt' in 1985. Never heard this one though.
Third member is Jon Lyon who plays stadium guitar, whatever that is. Biff Sanders of Fourwaycross plays drums on the album. No bassguitar used.
Expect some lo-fi garagey sound here. 'Can You Feel It' is a cover version of 'Prime Mover' originally by The Leather Nun.
Jeffrey Poe is an art dealer these days.

Really enjoying this LP, great sound and a really nice wall of noise going on. Bass guitar is over-rated anywho. :D

Thanks, that's good to know - I haven't had a copy of the LP in about 10 years, it's in storage in another country - could you rip it? I will send you TFT tracks in exchange!

Curious Guy said...

All the best.

I've been waiting to hear "Can You Feel It" again for about 20 years or so.
Thank you for letting me win the interwebs tonight.
you are awesome.

Rodrigo said...

couldn't download blissed out fatalists album, and I need it :$ Could you please re-upload it? I can't find it anywhere else. Thank you

Nic Greene said...

Ok, the album is being re-released http://pitchfork.com/news/47628-captured-tracks-announces-new-reissues-imprint/ and it's been remastered and shreds. Now would be a good time to no longer bootleg it, I guess. In any case has lovely new cover etc., an extensive liner notes. That we'd live to see the day.....

Curious Guy said...

Thanks for the info Nic. So the album won't be re-upped. That's my policy. People need to buy the reissue.
