    Sparks - early stuff recorded in UK - 'Kimono' plus the next two.. Am I alone in hearing hints of Magazine in there?
  4.  
    Yeah, those three Island LPs still stand the test of time and you can definitely hear their influence on later bands. I was listening to the first three Simple Minds albums last weekend and Sparks-ish moments are definitely there.

    I'm currently overdosing on Faith No More's 'Sol Invictus'...
  5.  
    And of course, early Simple Minds guitar and McGeoch's Magazine output was suitably similar...

    Slim says...
    Ooh, the Thakk box, I'm well jell!

    whilst not my fave period KC (that honour goes the 72-74 band with Wetton, Bruford, Cross and Fripp) this box shows how powerful the double trio was. The remix of Thrak album has put drummers Pat and Bill on severe pan left and right so now you can distinguish who is playing what and only goes to show just what a brilliant drummer Bill Bruford was.
    AttaKcathraKc continues the idea of ThraKcattaKc (not included) with more full onslaught improvs.
    The three live shows (each over two discs), AzteKc, Kcensington and New YorKc are powerful.

    What has Fripp up his sleeve for the next box set instalments one wonders?
  13.  
    Not been on here for a while, but thought I'd pop in and tell y'all about a cracking new lp I've come across - it's Highly Dangerous Black Tarantula by Teeth Of The Sea. I know nowt about them except they're a four piece from London! I have a previous lp of theirs, but this new one is awesome (a word I do not use lightly)! They're like, perhaps, the bastard offspring of Mogwai & Suicide, but more menacing & powerful....& with horns!!

    Play the opening track, All My Venom, at rather high volume & you'll feel your ears are being assaulted by Tyson Fury.

    Never heard of Teeth of the Sea but I'm giving them a try right now. Really good stuff—your departure points of Mogwai abd Suicide are apt. In the song "Field Punishmen," I can even hear early New Order.
  15.  
    good call Doc.
  16.  
    Teeth of the Sea were part of the line-up of the first Drill Festival in London in 2013, and have played Drill with Wire at the Cafe Oto in that occasion.

    Their new album is excellent IMO.
  17.  
    That's got to be about the time i stumbled across Your Mercury. I think I prefer TOTS & Wire as separate entities doing their own thing!
