Sleepers

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Sleepers - The Less An Object The Less An Object
Pop Colored Vinyl TK 9512098 Tim Kerr
1996 Orange Marbled Vinyl In Custom Inner Sleeve. “One Of The Earliest San Francisco Punk Bands, The Sleepers Were Also One Of The First U.S. Outfits To Stretch The Boundaries Of The Style Into What Is Recognized Today As "Post-Punk." Featuring The Deep Vocals And Inscrutable Lyrics Of Singer Ricky Williams (Formerly A Drummer With Crime), The Sleepers' Material Stressed Ominous Atmosphere, Throbbing Bass Lines, And Quirky Instrumental Shifts That Challenged The Rigid Bash-'Em-Out Structures Of Early Punk. Particularly In Their Later Days, Their Recordings Looked Forward To Elements Of Goth Rock, In Both Williams' Increasingly Bowie-Esque Vocal Delivery And The Sophisticated Electric Guitar Textures. The Sleepers' Obscurity Is Mostly Attributable To Their Sparse Output, Which Was Limited To A 1978 EP, A Single, And A 1981 LP, All On Small Labels With Limited Distribution. A Comprehensive Retrospective Of This Minor But Significant Band's Slim Recorded Legacy. The 18 Tracks Here Include The 1978 EP, A Single, A Limited Edition 7-Inch, Seven Songs From Their Sole Album, And A Couple Of Previously Unreleased Cuts. Considering Their Sparse Body Of Work, The Collection Is Fairly Diverse; Punk Rockers Will Much Prefer The Early EP Tracks, While Goth-Mongers And Post-Moderns Will Be More Attracted To The Later, More Intricate Compositions And Arrangements.” – Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide.... more details
