Lambchop - Tour Box [2010] (8 x CD's)


Lambchop - Tour Box [2010] (8 x CD's)

Lambchop, originally Posterchild, is an American band from Nashville, Tennessee.[1] AllMusic referred to them as "arguably the most consistently brilliant and unique American group to emerge during the 1990s". Never a band with a "core" lineup, Lambchop has consisted of a large and fluid collective of musicians focused around its creative centre, frontman Kurt Wagner. Lambchop is loosely associated with the alternative country genre. Initially indebted to traditional country, the music has subsequently moved through a range of influences including post-rock, soul and lounge music. (Wikipedia)

Whatever the style, the characteristic mood of Lambchop's music is evoked by Wagner's distinctive songwriting: lyrically subtle and ambiguous, the vocals melodic but understated. American Songwriter described Wagner's lyrics as "witty and deeply insightful." They were the backing band for Vic Chesnutt on his 1998 album The Salesman and Bernadette.  Singer Kurt Wagner is married to founder of Nashville 90's record store, Lucy's Record Shop and Tennessee Democratic Party leader Mary Mancini.

If you feel as though there's a big hole in your life where eight albums of rare Lambchop obscurities ought to be (plus two bonus DVDs), then you should buy this box set unhesitatingly. It's a real treasure chest of delights, mainly from the backwaters of Lambchop's life on the road, but also with some juicy sweepings from the studio floor. Sound quality is mainly excellent, with the 'Boo F*cking Who?' CD being a particular standout in this respect. There's some fluff and filler here too, of course, but also some real highlights you simply won't find anywhere else - some of the covers on 'Rainer on my Parade' are a scream. One of the added pleasures of the box set is the sheer quality of the packaging: each of the albums has its own identity, with beautifully executed original sleeve art. The box itself is fabric-bound, with a red ribbon to help you lever the discs out. And that smudgy silhouette on the front? Turns out it's Kurt's dog, rolling on its back. Which nicely sums up the whole homespun but slightly disorientating ethos that makes the 'chop so cherishable. (Amazon)
