The Dispossessed: Sister Mary LP with bonus 7'', 1988 Di Di Music

Από το Hartford του Connecticut των Η.Π.Α. κατάγονται οι Dispossessed, το συγκρότημα της σημερινής μας ανάρτησης. Η δισκογραφία τους περιλαμβάνει το LP "Sister Mary" καθώς και ένα 7ιντσο με τίτλο "Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite" τα οποία κυκλοφόρησαν το 1988, το πρώτο από την Dagger Records και το δεύτερο από την Dionysus Records αντίστοιχα. Όμως η ανεξάρτητη ελληνική δισκογραφική Di Di Music επανακυκλοφόρησε το "Sister Mary" σε μια ειδική έκδοση με την προσθήκη ενός 7ιντσου με δύο ακυκλοφόρητα τραγούδια. Σημειώνουμε πως τα δύο επιπλέον κομμάτια αποτελούν ακυκλοφόρητη μουσική και δεν προέρχονται από το "Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite". Στο myspace υπάρχουν και άλλα κομμάτια τους που μπορείτε να ακούσετε. Πάντως, οι πληροφορίες στο διαδίκτυο για τους Dispossessed είναι ελάχιστες.
Σε ό,τι αφορά τη μουσική τους, βασικά πρόκειται για post punk με αρκετές ενέσεις από garage psych, ένα αμάλγαμα κιθαριστικό και σκοτεινό μαζί. Ενδεχομένως ανάμεσα στις νότες των καταπληκτικών συνθέσεων να εντοπίσετε τις επιρροές από άλλα μουσικά είδη, πράγμα που προσθέτει αξία στη μουσική των Dispossessed. Ανάμεσα στα εκπληκτικά κομμάτια που πλαισιώνουν το "Sister Mary" ξεχωρίζουν τα "Kingdom, Kingdom", "The World", "Sister Mary", "Half Life", αλλά και η εντυπωσιακή διασκευή στο "Waiting For The Sun" των Doors. Όσο για τα άλλα δύο κομμάτια του 7ιντσου, θα διαπιστώσετε οι ίδιοι πως δεν υστερούν σε τίποτα. Καλή ακρόαση!

ENG: Today's post The Dispossessed come from Hartford, Connecticut U.S. Their entire discography includes an LP, "Sister Mary" and a 7inch single, "Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite" both of which were released in 1988 by Dagger Records and Dionysus Records respectively. But it was the greek independent label Di Di Music which re-released "Sister Mary" LP with two additional songs in 7inch format. We note that those two extra songs were not included in "Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite" either. You can listen to more unreleased material from The Dispossessed on their myspace fanpage.
Their music is basically post punk with plenty of garage psych buildup, effectively, an amalgam of guitar sound with lots of dark hues and intonations altogether. Nevertheless, there is more to their sound, especially for the trained ear. Among the excellent pieces of "Sister Mary", the most prominent ones are "Kingdom, Kingdom", "The World", "Sister Mary", "Half Life" as well as the impressive cover of The Doors' "Waiting For The Sun". Also, the two extra songs included in the bonus 7inch are quite superb. Enjoy listening to this one!

  2. Nice one.
    There's a Dispossessed bio here: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/dispossessed (along with a few of their recordings)
    Additional info: Dispossessed formed in the end of 1985 by Californian Leigh Gregory and Jeremy Guenter in Hartford, CT. Their sound was a bit "poppy" at the start and grew darker and harder.
    The band lasted almost two years -they disbanded at the end of 1987, after a few recording sessions and several not-so-good shows.
    The songs from those sessions were released as their only album by bassist's Keith Grave Dagger records (and later by Di-Di music).
    Unfortunately Jeremy Guenter committed suicide shortly after.
    At the mid-2000's (2005) the three remaining members Leigh Gregory, Keith Grave and Charles Dube recorded two songs, “Street of Kisses” and “Cornered Smile,” the latter which appears on Rubble Records’ 2006 “Diggy Diggy Dead!” compilation.
    There's a short live footage in youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKqw5iZBTcc
    And finally (if I'm allowed a little vanity) the bonus 7' was posted here: http://lost-in-tyme.ucoz.com/blog/2007-01-22-304
    Keep on
