THING OF THE DAY? LAPSUS LINGUAE are back at work up there in Scotland, that has to be a good thing of the day? We thought we’d heard the last from one of the finest bands of this )pr any other) century but word is leaking, bites and tastes are quietly flowing out of Glasgow/, Lapsus Linguae are back and this is a very very good thing indeed. Most bands reforming is not a good thing, some of them just never go away, some promise farewell tours and then let us down by announcing new tours a year later, Bowling for Soup, only five minutes ago, invited the Organ inbox with a promise that they are on a long-overdue farewell tour when you know damn well it won’t be long before the already booked reformation tour is announced/ Bands, go away! Stay split, your time is up, you’re far and old, your hair has fallen out, you can’t paint the town red anymore, most bands reforming is not a good thing, Lapsus Linguae are back and this is a very very good thing indeed
ORGAN – ALBUM REVIEW – APRIL 02 – “There are moments on this album that are as beautiful, as uplifting, as challenging as anything the Cardiacs have ever done – in fact the whole of this glorious album is that good, and as equally compellingly unique with the swooping strings and orchestrated jumps. It will restore your faith in absolutely everything”
Studio recording from 2006-7; rough instrumental mix circa 2012. Accompanied by gig footage circa 2006, edited 2012. Vocals due to be recorded early 2013, album release late 2013.
Lapsus Linguae piano takes and “studio” footage
Lapsus Linguae’s Penelope Collegefriend and Magaloof Taylor recording piano for the forthcoming album “This Is Puberty” due for release in late 2013. This clip also includes some footage of the band setting up microphones to record in their stinking rehearsal room in Glasgow’s east. Foolhardy.
NOTE – the audio heard is from the integrated video camera microphone, NOT the final recordings!
And here’s so,e past LAPSUS should you not be familiar with their glorious past in the shape of their 2002 mini album YOU GOT ME FRAICHE
in their own words….
“Erupting in 1999, these ones administered their bare, bloody hands excavating the bones of the great old one whose short name is Piano-constant, Neo-classically Progressive, Post-metallic, Hardcore Maximalism: First and final hierophants of said sub-cult, these ones have dominated by default ever after — a privilege akin like emperor Tuvalu chucking up one’s own trash…
In 2007 it withdrew into a visceral chrysalis of internecine perfectionism and crippling anxiety. Mercenary pharmacists together the counsellors and hypnotists fighting it a guerilla campaign — eventual victory cost heralded by apotheosis to states of pure energy — singular, nubile spirit unencumbered by dependency of record label paradigm, flitting ethereal plane through information highways.
Like teams of microphone — wielding seraphim, transcribing its own transmogrification; SOON two dekalog, “Ghosts” und “This is Puberty”, distil in material and digital vessels; these ones conversed with the birds and traced the courses of the stars in the night sky: Though such auspices are nought-wise unequivocal, this one surmises that by hither cometh ten and two waxings and weanings of the moon, the great work shall be complete”.
