Lancia - s/t

Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd put this one out there for discussion as it seems to be the most mentioned CD in the 'what CDs did you buy this week' thread at the moment. Everyone seems to be getting a copy - and rightly so - and I was just wondering what the general opinion on this CD is?

 

It kind of misses out on some of the 90s indies discussions with bands like Intuition, Inside Out, Friction and Hotboy for example, but it's one of my personal faves. I always think harshly of an album that starts with a filler, which this one definitely does, but after that you have some really great stuff. Songs like 'Pain Sweet Symphony', 'Still in Love', the super catchy 'Sweet Melody', 'Jimmy' and 'Goodbye' are all awesome examples of fine commercial hard rock.

 

Great disc, imo.

I am not a huge fan of the Lancia release. In my opinion it is just a slightly above average release. When compared to the other 2 releases Paul sang on, I rate this one at the bottom. I much prefer the Pair-A-Dice release over the Lancia disc. I also believe the Lazy Jane disc is a better listen than the Lancia CD.

 

Of these releases I think the Lazy Jane release is the one way underrated.

obviously been re-issued / bootlegged by the amount of the on ebay in the past few months for around the $10 mark.

Yeah, I dunno what it is exactly but all I know is it's silver pressed, booklet looks perfect and I couldn't tell the difference from the original in a million years. Oh, and plus it sounds good. :)

 

Dave, give me Lazy Jane please. I like Paid-A-Dice too and would put them on a pretty even keel. There's a few fillers on all releases, but I'd have to say that overall the standout tracks on the Lancia disc probably give it an edge.

I love this cd but at this time only have a cdr. Where can I get a real copy?

 

As Geoff said so many great tunes and IMO one of the better indies of all time.

I really like the Pair-A-Dice disc as well but it doesn't come close to the Lancia disc IMHO.

You're right Geoff. I bought a copy (the seller was from a former Russian state) and seriously, you really can't tell the difference from the original. Very professional bootlegs I must say. They've come a long way, the bootleggers...

I'm happy with the copy, yes I am. And why wouldn't I be, it only set me back $8.

I just ordered me a copy from someone on Amazon for $15 new and sealed.

 

Saw those on Amazon also. I like the 'Eastern European Remaster' tagline on some sellers. More like 'Eastern European Bootleg'. :wacko:

 

Good band though.

Oh I'm sure it's a boot but mine didn't have anything about European remaster. It had something believable like Japanese pressing and still sealed and brand new. :lol: The only thing that was missing was the obi. :lol:

I like the 'Sealed Japanese Pressing With No OBI' part. Hah.

 

Maybe they ran out of paper to print the OBI. :whistle:

Sweet Melody is a great song but the CD is too patchy to be way too underrated. However the promise was amazing and would have been great to get a 2nd album out of them. Definitely worth having though!

if I recall correctly, Lancia had enough tunes for a 2nd album which they played live, just unsure if the songs were studio recorded. Hopefully someone has some decent quality Lancia live stuff to check out.

I must have pissed him off. He just sent me another angry message.

 

 

print Bart's angry messages here :)

Ha, that's too funny. Let's see this political banter between you two. And task him to get an official re-issue of the cd out while your at it. :)

I'm pretty sure some of the Lazy Jane release was written for Lancia. I think "Destiny", "Wake Up" and "Gemini Lady" were written prior to the formation of Lazy Jane. These songs may have been change somewhat when recorded by Lazy Jane.

All of this started when Matt Harris (Jungle Blue) posted a message on Facebook about the world being in decline. Bart Walsh replied saying that the Democrats were our only hope. I replied to him saying I hoped he was being sarcastic. If he wasn't I didn't want it to be the Bart Walsh from Lancia. If he was it would lessen how much I liked the band. I misspelled lessen and it was on. The guy wouldn't relent. I guess Matt realized how far his post had gone off the rails so he deleted the whole thing the next day. All I have is what Bart said to me. My half of the conversation is gone.

 

I just replied to his last rant from a couple days ago. I mentioned the Lancia reissue. Let's see what he has to say.

Let me guess what he replied: "There will never be an official release because someday Trump is our president and the whole world is doomed. Get a copy from those nice Russians. Cheaply."

 

 

Pretty good stuff anyway....

    • I was on the train before, but for the record- 1. I prefer Steve Lee's voice over Harry Hess, purely as vocalists. Much respect for both, but I prefer Hess as the overall artist. 2. Coverdale over Tyler. Probably the only super easy pick without thought required. 3. Michaels over Vie. Another easy one, actually. Much as I love prime Enuff Z'Nuff and his unique voice, I wouldn't say I'm individually a mad fan of his vocals. Never had an issue with Michaels. 4. Robert Mason over Lane on a purely vocal level. Every single other aspect, Lane all the way. 5. Lewis over Pearcy. Really hard one. Possibly surprised myself here going with Lewis. Obviously neither are vocal powerhouses, but both iconic. It was thinking of Lewis on something like 'Over the edge' that made me lean that way. 6. Tate over La Torre. I'll be honest and say I've not heard the other dude much, but Tate did what he did very well. 7. Winger over Jovi. As close to a dead heat as there was. Ended up going with Winger thinking of something like 'Spell I'm Under,' but wicked close contest. 8. Malloy over Russell. Love both these guys, but on a purely vocal level had to go with Malloy. 9. Poley over Laine. Poley probably my favourite 80's hard rock vocalist and bit of a confession time... not the maddest Laine fan ever. Love him on 'Stick it in your ear' and even 'Cockroach,' but not as big a fan of him in more recent years. Guess the same could be said for Poley, but in their prime, Poley for me.  10. Joe Elliot over Heart. Another easy one. Love Elliot's voice but never been a fan of Heart's much at all. 11. Cathey over Logan. Two great vocalists, but I melt over Cathey's voice and with a bigger sample size he'd probably have been my favourite vocalist of the era. 12. Davis over Bulen (or is Keeling?). You stumped with with this one, mate. Have we ever heard Bulen sing on anything? I don't think I have. I just read he was actually the lead vocalist for Baton Rouge before they recorded anything and Keeling took over. So I assume you might have meant Keeling? In which case my answer's still the same.  Cool thread anyway. I enjoyed it. 
    • I haven't bought any but I'm heavily considering Badd Boyz, I'm not the biggest Shortino fan but the samples I've heard from that one rock!  Based on samples, honestly Rough Cutt is probably the one I won't consider any time soon.  I don't like the sort of metallic effect on Shortino's voice in some songs if you get what I mean.  For the same reason I've avoided the Platinum Overdose albums where I think it's more noticeable.  I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere else though so I'm not sure if I'm the only that gets bothered by it or maybe I'm just going insane
    • Geez mate, there were some really hard choices there, especially numbers 1, 4, 7 and 9. Nice job.  
    • You've got a lot of catching up to do.  
    • Another promotional track, this time from UKJ.    
    • Anyone play Pokémon Go?   If so I’d like to expand my in game friends for sending gifts and trades and such.    Shoot me a pm and I’ll get you my user information.    Thanks 
    • Yeah, I've already forgotten about it. On my phone and can't remember exactly, but I think there were two keepers? Very disappointing after what I was hoping for. 
    • Wow, was a new album already so soon expected? What a delicious surprise. What's the go with Pretty Maids? Is the band still active?
