Died Pretty

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Died Pretty - Pre Deity Pre Deity
Pop Used - LP CITLP 510 Citadel
Beautiful 1988 Seven-Track Compilation In Custom Inner Sleeve. So, For Those Who Yearned For Rock & Roll In What Was The Vapid Decade Known As The 80's, One Had Two Choices - The American Underground And Australia. Australia Was Just Killing It In The 80's, With Bands Aspiring To Those Who Preceded Them, Like Radio Birdman And The Saints. The Died Pretty Were Right There, Releasing The Epic "Free Dirt" In 1986 Before Dropping This LP Of EP/7" Tracks That Preceded That Album, All Produced By Former Birdman Vocalist-And Then New Christs Frontman-Rob Younger. Highly Recommended For Those Who Like Their Rock Loud, Hard And (Occasionally) Droney. Seriously, A Truly Great Band That Never Came Close To Recording Even A Mediocre Record.... more details
 
Died Pretty - Free Dirt Free Dirt
Pop New - LP Goes On 7 What Goes On
Sealed 1986 Gatefold Original. “The Band's First Full-Length Album Found The Group Starting To Come Into Its Own More And More. While The Various Influences That Can Be Referred To Are Still Present, Died Pretty Are Starting To Sound More Like A Group Finding A Distinct Sound Instead Of Taking A Cue From Good Influences. Helped In The Studio By A Variety Of Guests On Everything From Sax To Pedal Steel Guitar, And With Good, Full Production From Rob Younger Continuing The Job He Started With The Pre-Deity Tracks, Free Dirt Is A Fine, Fiery Effort. "Wig-Out" Serves As Good An Example Of Its Quality As Any — With Martial Drumming And A Very Celtic Drinking Tune Atmosphere Made Just That Much More Intense By Being Performed On Rock Instruments; It Shows How The Band Hotwires The Past For Its Own Purposes. Opening Song "Blue Sky Day" Is An Energetic But Never Overbearing Rocker With A Comfortable Glow And Surge To It, Brett Myers' Really Wonderful Guitar Matched By The Additional Performances On Mandolin And Violin. His Work Throughout The Album Is Exemplary, Powerful But Never Pointlessly Showy, While Brunetti's Keyboards Take The Melodic Lead More Often Than Not, Calling To Mind Ray Manzarek's Often-Similar Role In The Doors, While Not Sounding Like A Clone Of Same. Similarly Ron S. Peno's Jim Morrison Inspirations Are Clear, But His Higher-Pitched, Less Self-Obsessed Singing Is In Many Ways Warmer And More Immediate Than Those Of His Forebear. Top It Off With The Fine Mark Lock/Chris Welsh Rhythm Section, And It's Clear A Crack Band Is At Work. "Through Another Door," Sung By Myers In A Warm, Winning Fashion, The Grand Concluding Solos On "Life To Go" And "Next To Nothing," And The Beautifully Cryptic "The 2000 Year Old Murder," Are Among The Many Highlights.” - Ned Raggett, All Music Guide... more details
