7/12, 14/12, & 21/12/2015 TKS Presents: ‘The Seconds Out – Trilogy’ tracklistings

Fast approaching the festive season, but don’t think I’m indulging in some of the musical excrement currently flooding shopping centres and commercial radio; while some crooners may have chestnuts roasting on open fires, my current indulgence is Vic Chesnutt‘s ‘North Star Deserter‘ album, a work wreathed in darkness but splashed with moments of warmth and  beauty, albeit wistful.
‘North Star Deserter’ was one of Chesnutt’s later albums, appearing seventeen years after his debut, ‘Little’, produced by fellow Athens, GA native Michael Stipe, and so not a work considered in the TKS focus on second albums. While some artists suffer the dreaded Sophomore Slump, many manage to match or exceed the work of their debuts; so many in fact that from the outset it was evident that more than one programme would be required to fit in tracks from notable second works. The first show focussed on psychedelic and cosmic sounds, from the 60’s to this decade, leaving out only tracks from the 1970’s, which featured on the second show; the final focus included more tracks from the 70’s, plus several from the early 80’s and a couple from this century to prove that The Kitchen Sink isn’t stuck in the sonic past!

  1. Truly some great bands and tracks here! Your depth of musical knowledge is very impressive. Glad to see my favorite band Mercury Rev and a couple of others dear to me (Suicide and Stereolab). The Bonzo Dog Band/Pearls Before Swine was pretty eye-catching! Nicely done!!! –Paul
