Pylon

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Pylon - Chomp Chomp
Pop Used - LP DB65 DB Recs
Stunning 1983 Original In Scalloped, Die-Cut Jacket With Custom Record Label Price Sticker On Shrink. “One Of The New South's Most Revered And Influential Bands, This Athens, Georgia Quartet Came On Like A Cross Between The B-52's And Gang Of Four. Atop Thin, Almost Brittle Metallic Guitar, Muscular Bass And No-Nonsense Drums — Which All Mesh Into Stark But Inviting Dance Rhythms — Vanessa Briscoe Artlessly Shouts/Talks/Gargles Celebrations Of Life And Innocent Warnings/Wonderings About Restrictions On Freedom. Though Limited In Material — The First Two Records Contain About Four Really Good Songs All Told; The Rest Are Merely Okay Or Repetitive — Pylon Is Fraught With Possibilities For Development. Promise Notwithstanding, Chomp (Produced By Chris Stamey And Gene Holder, Both Then Db's) Was The Quartet's Swansong. More Ambitious In Scope, The Record Incorporates A Psychedelic Drone In Spots; Pylon Sometimes Sounds Less Anxious And Strident Than Before. The Album Includes Both Melodic (!) Sides Of A Great Preceding Single ("Crazy" B/W "M-Train") And Other Cool Slices ("Beep," "Gyrate") Of Floor-Shaking Art.” Trouserpress.com... more details

Pylon - Gyrate Gyrate
Pop Used - LP 54 DB
1980 Original With Custom Inner Sleeve. Debut LP From Athens, GA Quartet. “Pylon's First Album, Although It Doesn't Contain Masterworks On The Level Of The First Single "Dub" Or The Later Single "Crazy," Is Considerably More Consistent Than The Comparatively Spotty Pylon!! And Chomp. This Is Pylon At Their Purest, Mixing The Spartan Angularity Of Gang Of Four With A Playfulness Missing From Similar U.K. Bands Like The Au Pairs Or The Early Mekons (Or Indeed From Gang Of Four Themselves) As Well As The Irresistible Danceability Of Their Athens, Ga, Compatriots The B-52's. Yet Pylon Never Quite Sounded Like Anyone Except Pylon; Their Naïve Instrumental Style -- Guitarist Randy Bewley Claimed That He Didn't Even Know The Names Of Any Notes Or Chords -- And Singer Vanessa Briscoe's Inimitable Voice (Moving From A Flirtatious Coo To A Meredith Monk Shriek In The Space Of A Line) And Inscrutable Lyrics Are So Idiosyncratic That They Probably Couldn't Sound Like Anyone Else Any More Than Another Band Could Tackle A Pylon Song. (Remember The Botch R.E.M. Made Of "Crazy"?) Highlights Here Include The Spirited Opener "Volume," The Evocative Instrumental "Weather Radio" (Probably The Prettiest Song On The Record), And Briscoe's Impassioned "Feast On My Heart." Later Pressings Of This Album Replace The First Track On Side Two, "Driving School," With "Recent Title."” – Stewart Mason, AMG... more details
