TEN YEARS AFTER

‘TEN YEARS AFTER released their first album in 1967. And they have a new album out, 50 years after.  Now, after the departure of ALVIN LEE the remaining three original members carried on with several replacements but the line-up with  singer-guitarist JOE GOOCH Lasted from 2003 till 2014. That year, GOOCH and original member  and bass-player LEO LYONS quit to form their own band, HUNDRED SEVENTY SPLIT. That left TYA with two original members:  keyboard-player RIC LEE and CHUCK CHURCHILL on drums. They teamed up with bass-player COLIN HOGDKINSON, a most famous bass-player actually, who worked with Chris Farlowe and Spencer Davis just to name a few – and with the much younger singer-guitarist and composter MARCUS BONFANTI, who has been part of the London blues scene for a while, for instance with THE BOOM BOOM BAND.
The four sat together with BONFANTI overseeing the works. All wrote and suggested ideas, with Bonfanti turning them into bona fide songs’ © Eddy Bonte.

PEARLS BEFORE SWINE feat. Tom Rapp: ONE NATION UNDERGROUND (1967) & TOM RAPP:  STARDANCER (1972)

“The word underscore comes to mind when I hear Pearls Before Swine. Here lies a wooden expression lightly fused with jazz tempo, but solidified exoterically with remarkable poetry, the ultimate impression of Tom Rapp. (…) strongly influenced by a group of beat poets called The Fugs which gave rise to Pearl Before Swine’s EP styled 1967 debut One Nation Underground that reflected mysticism, solitary love and protest. The controversial “Miss Morse”, spelled out an obscenity in code while the opening “Another Time” was sheer angelic tears. Largely an experimental album with varied sounds, the real strength of the album was its hippy sincerity (“Drop Out”) and un- pretentious avante -garde message. With tears in my eyes I have rarely heard anything this beautiful (“Morning Song”), it pierces heart and cleanses the soul.
Rapp stated that Stardancer was the first album since the first Pearls album One Nation Underground over which he had full control. The fierce anti-war song “Fourth Day of July”, with its references to “the broken children of Vietnam”, was widely played in “underground” circles of the time. The lighthearted “Summer of ’55” contains some of Rapp’s cleverest aphorisms, such as “When the day breaks / the pieces fall on you”.

DROP OUT ( < One Nation Underground)

Drop out with me
And just live your life
Behind your eyes
Your own skies
Your own tomorrows

Just be yourself
And no one can step
Inside your mind
From behind
If you just walk out

They made the rules
And they laid it
On us all
Don’t you fall
‘Cause then they own you

They’re using you
To kill all the echoes still
Around
From the sound
Of calendars crumbling

They made the bomb
Would they drop it
On us all?
Great and small
But must we follow
Drop out with me l
