MAY 1ST RISE The album was mixed by Alan Moulder. Unlike the last four albums, 7 didn't have a producer in the traditional sense. Spacemen 3's Sonic Boom Peter Kember became a significant force on this record by shedding conventions and helping to keep the songs alive, fresh, and protected from the destructive elements of recording studio overproduction and over-perfection. The band's trusted live drummer from to the present, James Barone, played on the entire record, helping to keep rhythm at the center of a lot of these songs.

The main idea of "The Salvation Of Morgane" was to collect all these puzzle pieces, put them together to tell a story, adding new songs and recent stories about musician's life on the road. They gained notoriety not only for their surreal and smutty sense of humour, but also for their amalgamation of proto-punk, s porn, pop, and avant-garde music.

The group returned to Electrical Audio in Chicago to record Losing.

Walls of thick, dissonant fuzz and ghostly reverb-soaked vocals make Chainsaw Rainbow's Heavy Sad Love one hazy beast of a record. Sounding somewhat like early Flying Saucer Attack, this album is filled with distorted, hypnotically droning guitars that easily make you feel as if you've been hurled into outer space.

Formed by Coffey, a former mechanic's apprentice from Kitchener, Ontario, with it's members collected from various Ontario small towns, they rapidly ingratiated themselves with Toronto's punk scene. For their follow up, a self-titled LP that will be released on Burger and Dine Alone Records on July 28th, the band sought to build upon the lo-fi aesthetic of their earlier releases and push themselves beyond their garage roots.
They began working with producer Alex Bonenfant METZ, Crystal Castleswho brought them into a proper studio for the first time, and they embraced their abiding love for, and near encyclopedic knowledge of 70's power pop, in the process honing a potent brand of guitar music that draws influence from a broad swath of the genre's history. It's a sound that at once revels in a rough and anarchic feel, best exemplified by Coffey's untamed wail of a singing voice, while displaying a deft approach to songwriting and arrangement, collecting and repurposing ideas gathered from bands like Cheap Trick, Dwight Twilley, Teenage Fanclub, The Cars, Thin Lizzy, The Undertones, and The Exploding Hearts, in the service of songs about teenage isolation, petty criminality and escape, rooted in an unshakeable faith in honesty, love and the transformative powers of pop music.

On leaving Tarragona the road passes through a country and olives, tolerably well cultivated, keeping genvines of the inerally to the level of the seacoast, and only seeking when necessary to avoid a projection of land and too terior great an angle. This is the case at Col-du-Balaguer, its French name indicates, is a narrow pass lying which, as between two mountains.

This place was formerly infested by robbers, who, taking advantage of the seclusion and concealment of the ravine, and the impossibility of escape from would take their stand at the bottom, survey at leisure entered the pass, and then selecting their game, Rama Donna - Audacity - Power Drowning / Mellow Cruisers and murder it at pleasure. To check these atrocities, a gallows was erected on the very site, where every it, those who robber caught in the neighbourhood was hanged with little ceremony.
Before reaching Amposta we came to a fork of the roads, where a small covered cart was in waiting to receive the mail for Tortosa, a considerable city raised to the municiWhile the mail was shifted from pal dignity by Scipio.
The country throughout was a barren and sandy down, destitute entirely Rama Donna - Audacity - Power Drowning / Mellow Cruisers trees and underwood so that it was easy to cateh sight of the neighbouring sea, and of a number of small keys which lay ; along the coast, forming an interior navigation, as is the case in other parts of the Gulf of Lyons, and in a still more remarkable manner along the coast of the United States.
Scipios, Cneius and Publius, met and conquered Asdrubal, when his way into Italy with a strong force to join his for- on tunes to those of his kinsman Hannibal, already in the neighbourhood of Rome ; and it was thus that the destinies of the future mistress of the world were decided by a battle fought in Spain, as was afterward the case on the banks of this same stream No river, secrating at least in the Rama Donna - Audacity - Power Drowning / Mellow Cruisers wars of Pompey and Cesar.
The mules except two, which drew it on board this done, the remainder of the team were fastened to the boat by a long line, and made to draw it far up the stream, were detached from it, ; when we struck across, and, by the assistance of two ponderous oars, were enabled to gain the opposite beach, and the kingdom of Valencia. We were ferry. In the short distance of a ; I few leagues, and without any sensible change of climate, the long pantaloon of the Catalan, extending from his shoulders exchanged for loose breeches of linen, which tie over the hips with a drawing-string, to the ground, is called bragas, and which, like the Highland kilt, terminate above the knee.
Instead of the velvet jacket and silver buttons of the Cata- on Valencian wears a long woollen robe, called manta, with this hangs edged fringe, and checkered like a plaid over one shoulder on and when occasions, carelessly ordinary lan, the ; the air sharp he wraps it If he has a closely about him.
Nor was there a less striking difference in the figure and faces of these natives of two neighbouring provinces of the same kingdom, than I had noticed in their dress. The stature of the Valencians seemed less than that of the Catalans, and their faces, instead of indicating a northern origin, were of an Asiatic cast. Indeed, as I looked upon their red and well-turned limbs and sunburnt faces, unshaded save by the straight black hair that hung about them, I was strongly reminded of the red inhabitants of our forests.
When the sun was down I 67 wandered back to the posa- da, and found a group of three of these oddly-attired Valencians sitting before the entrance to the courtyard, with their naked legs crossed before them, and busily engaged with a pack of dirty cards, which they dealt upon the manta of one of them spread out in the midst.
They had been thus Rama Donna - Audacity - Power Drowning / Mellow Cruisers when I went when the diligence arrived, were still at it and now, at the end of an hour, forth to walk, the gambling continued with undiminished ardour. Lean- ing against the wall, occupied in overlooking the fate of the game, was a tall and graceful stripling, in the first bloom of opening manhood, whose half-listless indifference trasted singularly with the interested con- and excited energy of the gamblers, which gave a still more ferocious expression to countenances in themselves sinister and forbidding.
The simple innocence of the youth was brought more strikingly into relief by the comparison, and the repose of his attitude and the beauty of his person, which even the garb of Catalonia did not disfigure, formed altogether, in con- nexion with the ill-favoured figures below him, a group which a painter would have been pleased to sketch, and circumstances tended to impress indelibly on my memory.
This young Catalan was the postillion who was to conduct us the first stage from Amposta on the follow- which after His dress evinced more than usual care, and neck from his depended the rosary which Rama Donna - Audacity - Power Drowning / Mellow Cruisers maternal hand had placed to guard from the evil which was too soon Within the court our mayoral had been to overtake him.
As I summons came ruffianly gamblers continued their on with that sup- tiirned to depart, I noticed that the game, and Pepe gazed listless indifference. I found our table spread in a very large room, which was strewed with boxes and straw panniers, while in one cor- ner was a heap of algarroba beans, which are gathered from a large overgrown tree, very common in this part of In the midst the country, and used as fodder for mules.
My companions were already seat- ed upon long wooden benches, and silently employed with the soup. This was succeeded by the puchero or olla, a dish of universal use in Spain, which takes its name from the earthen jug or iron pot in which it is prepared. It consists of an odd mixture of beef, Rama Donna - Audacity - Power Drowning / Mellow Cruisersa species of pulse called garbanzo, a kind of chick-pea, in great favour among the Spaniards, and of a great variety of vegetables, the whole being seasoned plentifully with garlic, and a small piece of salt pork or bacon.
Such was the nature of our repast ; and a hungry man could scarcely have complained of it. But the manner in which it was eaten, or rather devoured, was by no means so free from objection. I thought that I had never was before seen people behave so ill at table unless it had been on board of a steamboat on our Hudson, where an elegance of decoration unknown in other countries, and ; more the harmony of surrounding nature, would necessarily soften the manners and promote refinement, were still they not counteracted by the spirit of despatch, which all seem to catch sympathetically from revolving wheels Big Shot - Billy Joel - Retold: Vol.

When these uncouth Catalans were pretty well gorged, they gradually became less exclusive, and would occasionally offer to others the dish of taken, and, growing more which they had already pargrew less hungry, polite as they would even sometimes help others before serving themselves.

It is companied with gallant speeches, which, instead of being received amiss by the lively girl, either excited a laugh or a repartee.
After being accustomed to the retiring modesty of young girls in France, I was much startled at this freedom of manners in our Valenciana, and still more so at the indifference of her father and mother, who, so long as they saw that she was in sight and sitting between them, seemed few hardy words. Supper being over, and paper cigars lighted by most of the company, the landlady went round the table to collect to care little for a her dues, followed by a modern Maritornes, with hand The deoutstretched to receive the expected gratuity.
The Catalans exclaimed against the charge, pronounced it outrageous, and swore that at least ten reals must be for the Something To Lose - Terry And The Pirates - Return To Silverado ruido de casa," or noise of the house, which any Spanish posada.
This over, we were shown to our ; Rama Donna - Audacity - Power Drowning / Mellow Cruisers place, which was next to the eating-room, and which had a small double door fastened with a swinging bar, as in our stables.
It had likewise a single window with an iron which looked upon the courtyard, and, instead of a sash, was furnished with a door. Towards two the next morning, a knocking at the court- yard gate announced the arrival of the courier from Tortosa, for whom we were waiting to recommence our journey.
This noise was succeeded by the voices of the hostlers, and jingling of and attached bells, as the mules were brought out and very soon after, all further idea of sleep was banished by the mayoral, with a lamp in his hand, putting his head and red cap inside of the door, to the diligence ; and shouting long and loudly, " Arriba arriba seniores ya vamos Up up and away, sirs! The mayoral called Pepito, relinquished the reins to the lad, whom he is a diminutive of Pepe or Jose, and is which This Pepito was even more lively expressive of affection.
Poor fellow circumstances the better from the fate which after- ward befell him. Peof his own gayety, and ceasing to enpito, too, had wearied with mules the whip and voice, allowed them to courage trot onward in the middle of the road at their own gait. Beside me, on the right, was a young man whom I had known to be a candidate for the priesthood, by a narrow stock of black silk with violet stripes, which he wore about his neck, in addition to Rama Donna - Audacity - Power Drowning / Mellow Cruisers common garb of the student.
Though we were alone together in for the cabriolet, we had leaving Tarragona corner, either ; scarce exchanged a dozen words since and now he too was motionless in his wrapped in pious abstraction from the cares of this world, or buried in the sleep.
Thus powerfully more mundane invited forgetfulness of the by example of those who were near me, I caught the drowsy infection, and having nestled snugly into my corner, soon lost entirely the realities of existence in that mysterious state which Providence has provided as a cure for every ill.
As the thoughts of a man when alone in a distant land, without any outward objects to attract his attention, are apt to do, mine, before home from which I I fell asleep, had wandered back to a had been some time absent, and which, in contradiction to every other law of attraction, is found to draw us more powerfully the further we ever recede.

I now roused myself, rubbed my eyes, and directed them out of the windows. Ori ihe other fiercely side, the scene was some what different; Pepe being awake the interruption took place, was at once sensible of nature ; he had abandoned the reins, and jumped hoiu when its his seat to the road-side, intending to escape among the trees.

I even fancied that I could detect in the one whom I had first me seen something that reminded of the gamblers of the in the of the posada, and who, courtyard previous evening while I had fancied them deeply engaged with perhaps, their cards, were only eying the numbers and arrange- ment of our When party.
The first went round to the left side of the diligence, and having shoe and placed it unhooked the iron under the wheel as an additional secu- rity against escape, opened the door of the interior, and could hear him distinctly utter a terrible threat in Spanish, and demand an ounce of gold mounted on the steps, I from each of the passengers.
This was answered by an expostulation from the Valencian shopkeeper, who said that they had not so much money, but what they had would be given willingly. Having remained a moment at the door of the interior, he did not come Rama Donna - Audacity - Power Drowning / Mellow Cruisers the cabriolet, but passed at once to Pictures Of Youth - Think Tank - Think Tank rotunda.
Here he used greater caution of the tion, doubtless Amposta, that from having seen the evening before, at contained no women, but six young stu- it who were all stout fellows.

Meanwhile, the second robber, after consulting with his companion, had returned to the spot where the zagal Pepe As he went towards him he lay rolling from side to side.

This my life ; and it struck me at its the unhappiest of situation could be more worthy of pity than to die the dog's death of poor Pepe, it was to be compelled to witness his fate without the power to aid him.

In consequence of the darkness, which was only partially ment they had all dispelled in front of the diligence by the lantern which had enabled me to see what occurred so immediately before me, we were not at once sensible of the departure of the robbers, but continued near half an hour after their disappearance in the same situation in which they left us.
The short breathing and chattering of teeth, lately so audible from within the interior, gradually subsided, and were suc- ceeded by whispers of the females, and soon after by words pronounced in a louder tone ; while our mangled guides, by groans and writhing, gave evidence of returning animation.
My companion and I slowly let down the windows beside us, and, having looked round a while, we opened the door and Rama Donna - Audacity - Power Drowning / Mellow Cruisers. In the rear of the coach was a black heap on the ground, which I presently recognised as the six students who The Faros - Im Calling You Back / Im Crying occupied the rotunda, and who, lying flat upon their faces, made the oddest figure one can conceive, up in their black cloaks, with their cocked hats of the same solemn colour, emerging at intervals from out the heap.
As we came cautiously towards them, they whisrolled pered among each other, and then first one lifted his head to look at us, and then another, until, finding that we were their fellow-travellers, they all rose at once like a cloud, notwith- standing the threat which the robbers had made to them at their departure, to wait by the road-side, and shoot Rama Donna - Audacity - Power Drowning / Mellow Cruisers the first person who should offer to stir.
It will readily occur and bloody deed could have been made at all, it might have been by these six Rama Donna - Audacity - Power Drowning / Mellow Cruisers men, who, being together and acquainted with each other, might easily have acted in concert, whereas the to the reader, that if resistance to this bold were as completely separated as though they had been in distinct vehicles.
But if it be considered rest of the party had been awakened suddenly by armed ruffians, were destitute of weapons, and knew not the number of their assailants, it will appear Rama Donna - Audacity - Power Drowning / Mellow Cruisers natural that Rama Donna - Audacity - Power Drowning / Mellow Cruisers should have acted precisely as they did.
We found them rolling over in the dust and moaning inarticulately, excepting that the conductor would occasionally forth some of those sainted names, whose aid he murmur in the moment of tribulation. Having down the light from the top of the coach, we found them so much disfigured with bruises and with blood, that The finery of recognition would have Rama Donna - Audacity - Power Drowning / Mellow Cruisers impossible.
While thus engaged, we heard the noise of footsteps in the direction of Amposta, and shortly after a man came up with a musket in his hand, and inquired the cause of our interruption.

He came at length; a fat little man, with a red cockade in his hat, in token of the loyalty him his office.

These painful scenes at length had an end, and the cart which the guides had been placed returned slowly to- into wards Amposta. Before it drove away, the mayoral showed symptoms of returning sensibility but Pepe seemed in ; his last agony. Two soldiers of the resguardo took their and when the rope which places to conduct the diligence the robbers had stretched across the road from tree to tree ; had been removed, the mules were again set in motion, hurrying from the scene of disaster as though they had been sensible of its horrors.
The day had now completely dawned, and the sun, rising in a cloudless sky, shone abroad upon a cultivation. We ; which had the form of an amwere soon surrounded by all the village worthies, to hear once and again from the loquacious stuIt was, however, no dents the story of our misfortunes.
