In January of 1984 Van Halen released their 6th studio album. Though some in the band disagreed, Eddie Van Halen’s decision to throw off the shackles of pure guitar rock and embrace the synthesizer as a lead instrument proved to be both a bold and wise move, as it would get them to the top of the Billboard Singles Charts and eventually go on to sel…
 
In April of 1983 Minor Threat released their only studio album. Clocking in just north of twenty one minutes over the course of nine tracks, the album is a blisteringly fast DC hardcore assault with some surprising pop hooks peppered in. It is single-handedly responsibly for the straight edge movement, which in turn makes it responsible for that ti…
 
In July of 1984 Sade released their debut album. Recorded over six weeks at Power Plant Studios with Robin Millar helming the board, the record would go on to spawn four singles, win Best British Album at the Brit Awards, and sell over ten million copies, making it the best selling album by a British female vocalist for twenty four years. Let’s tal…
 
In March of 1984 Run DMC released their debut album. Breaking down the genre to it’s bare bones, the group opted to keep the beats tighter and rhymes harder than anyone had done yet. The results? The first rap album to hit gold status, the creation of the rap/rock genre, and the opening salvo of hip hop’s rise to cultural dominance. Let’s talk Run …
 
In October of 1984 Frankie Goes to Hollywood released their debut studio album. Spanning four sides, and with producer Trevor Horn flexing complete control over the final product, the album is a testament to 80s excess. Let’s talk Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Welcome to The Pleasure Dome!저자 Birch
 
In April of 1984 Meat Puppets released their second studio album. Gone are the hardcore roots of the band, opting to embrace their love of psych, country, and just a touch of thrash. The results? One of the finest recording of the 1980s and another feather in the cap of SST. Let’s talk Meat Puppets, Meat Puppets II!…
 
In June of 1983 The Police released their 5th and final studio album. Recorded in just six weeks at Air Studios, the band recorded live in three separate rooms (“for social reasons”). It would go on to be a worldwide smash hit and the final nail in their proverbial coffin. Let’s talk The Police, Synchronicity!…
 
In February of 1983 U2 released their 3rd studio album. It was the most overtly political musical statement to date by the band, with Sunday Bloody Sunday to this day being considered one of the best protest songs ever written. The album would finally unseat Thriller from the number one spot on the UK charts and many tracks are still staples of the…
 
In November of 1983 Paul Simon released his 6th studio album. Entering into his fourth decade, Paul found himself in a rut. His vanity movie project One-Trick Pony was a commercial flop, the reunion concert with former band mate showed just why they broke up in the first place, and his pending divorce from Carrie Fisher was an open wound. What’s a …
 
In May of 1983 Hanoi Rocks released their fourth studio album. These Finnish street urchins w/ the help of ex-Mott The Hoople alum Dale Griffen and Peter Watts production, made Glam Metal a thing and inspired the Sunset Strip crowd to step up their game. Let’s talk Hanoi Rocks, Back to Mystery City!저자 Birch
 
In April of 1984 The Blue Nile released their debut album. Linn Electronics had a conundrum, the hi-fi equipment they made was just too good to demo previously recorded artists. Their solution was to start a record label and give three art school kids studio time. Let’s talk The Blue Nile, A Walk Across the Rooftops!…
 
In October of 1983 The The released their debut album. NME’s Don Johnson: “In days when the pop song has been reduced to the reiteration of catch-phrases, Matt Johnson flexes a rare literary flair. More importantly he has the command of music’s immense possibilities to carry them through without self-indulgence. Ignore this LP if you must, but you’…
 
In January of 1983 Def Leppard released their 3rd studio album. With engineering wizard Mutt Lange having complete control over the writing and recording, over the course of 10 grueling months in 1982 the band would create an otherworldly sounding record that set the high watermark for all hard rock to come. Let’s talk Def Leppard, Pyromania!…
 
In the year of our lord, 1982, Duran Duran released their sophomore studio outing. The album was not received well at all by critics of the day with NME saying it was “a sweet, lumpy pudding of a noise” and Record Mirror chiming in with, “thoroughly competent and yet bereft of the soul, passion and wit that makes a great record”. The passage of tim…
 
In March of 1982 Iron Maiden released their 3rd studio album. With the drug abuse related ouster of singer Paul Di’Anno heralded the arrival of the angel voiced former Samson vocalist, Bruce Dickinson, to fill the void. With his distinct “air raid” siren song added to Steve Harris’s incredible compositions, the band made Heavy Metal a household nam…
 
In September of 1982 Bruce Springsteen released his 6th studio album. Initially written as scratch tracks for the E Street Band and subsequently declined, The Boss eschewed the bombast of his past outings and after digging in his pockets for the only copy of the tape in existence released his most raw and intimate album to date. Let’s talk Bruce Sp…
 
In September of 1982 Kate Bush released her 4th studio album. Written, recorded, and self produced over two years time, the record is an experimental work of genius. Making significant use of the Fairlight CMI, the album’s sound is still fresh these many years later. Though considered a commercial flop on it’s release, it’s continued legacy cannot …
 
In September of 1982 Simple Minds released their 5th studio album. Recorded over a five month period at Rockfield Studios, Jim Kerr has stated that it was a time where everything they tried seemed to work. The album would go on to spawn three singles, peak at number 69 (nice) on the US Billboard 200, and be certified Platinum in the UK. Let’s talk …
 
In July of 1982 Dexys Midnight Runners released their sophomore outing. Dressed in the finest of oogle fashions, Kevin Rowland and crew set-off to take over the pop charts. With the addition of strings to their Northern Soul sound, the band proceeded to do just that. Let’s talk Dexys Midnight Runners, Too-Rye-Ay!…
 
Robert Dimery is here and talking to the group about his new book MusicQuake: The Most Disruptive Moments in Music and 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. You can purchase at OUR (Louisville) local independent book store Carmichael’s or through your local bookstore and yes, (if you must) it is on Amazon along with Robert’s other books: https:…
 
In July of 1982 Elvis Costello & The Attractions released their 6th studio album, together. The first to not be produced by Nick Lowe and recorded between November of 1981 and March of 1982 at AIR studios, this aural outing is considered by most to be a high water mark in a career consisting of only high water marks. Lets talk Elvis Costello & The …
 
In October of 1981 Tom Tom Club released their debut album. When your lead singer writes you out of the song writing credits on the last album, whats a rhythm section to do? If your Tina Weymouth & Chris Frantz you call up one the best guitarists alive, Adrian Belew, head on down to the Bahamas, and make one of the greatest albums of the 1980s. Let…
