Trixter - Tattoos & Misery

What, you don't like track 2 ?????? really???? I've gotta say that one is nowhere near the company of Physical Attraction to these ears.

 

Are we both talking about 'Get On It?' Such a blatant filler to me and I could see it no differently.

 

I don't mind Get it On but it's probably the second worst song after Physical Attraction IMO. Dirty Love is my fav and really I like them all and it's hard for me to believe more around her don't think this is better.

 

I can understand disappointment because if you're being realistic it's really not comparable to the first 2 albums at all. They simply just don't sound like the band they were back then. Like I said, to me they sound like a mid-90's indie band trying to sound like Trixter.

 

That said, if you just take the album at face value and don't compare it to the first two (which is admittedly hard) it's a fun hard rock disc. Like I also mentioned, the above tunes are the only two really weak songs, but the rest is all worthwhile enough, with a few crackers in the mix. I actually think a beefy production job would have done this thing the world of good too.

Fair enough, mate, but where was that logic when Van Halen's newie was being discussed? ;)

 

I think 'Physical Attraction' is better than anything on the Van Halen CD and only 'Get it on' is as bad as a lot of the Van Halen CD. The rest of the Trixter CD, imo of course, is far superior to the garbage Van Halen got away with this year. In my opinion. :)

I dont ever recall supporting the Van Halen album........there were 3 or 4 very good songs and although the musianship was pretty awesome that hardly makes for a good album if the songs arent there. I wouldnt have rated the album as whole much above 50% if I owned it (which I dont)....comparing any album with the new Van Halen as an argument to suggest its good is not a wise idea.

Now that's more like the G-Scallop I know! I wish you'd been singing that melody from the start, mate, as I recall much nicer words towards this release back when discussions were taking place. Anyway, not to worry. I'm glad you see it for the piece of shit it is, just disappointed it took a while. Hopefully Tim's seen the light too and we can go back to normal in agreeing that terrible music is terrible music. ;)

Which one are you talking about? Trixter? Yep it's mostly shit IMO. Van Halen? Horribly patchy but a few redeeming songs and great guitar. Still not great though. Neither are worth much air-time frankly when there are much better discs around...

Haha... definitely talking about Van Halen. I'll persist that the Trixter disc is certainly a disappointment in comparison to their first two, but it's really not that bad a disc at all. And it does have 3 really super songs on it.

Other than "Tattoos..." mine doesn't have any other great songs, so you must have a version with 2 extra songs on. :)

You should seek out the version with 'Coolest thing' (cheesy lyrics but awesome song) and 'Walk with a stranger.' Trust me, you'll be glad you did. ;)

 

Okay, so am I the only poof who didn't know that 'Walk with a stranger' is actually a cover of an old Skid Row tune from 1986? No wonder it rules.

    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!
