1 - GUTTERCATS - BEAUTIFUL CURSE - (L+C) 
CLOSER


Guttercat makes a strong comeback with this third opus of a class hardly reached in our lands. Recorded in Paris, mixed in Brittany by Jean-Louis Rglain, mastered in Birmingham in the famous John Rivers' studio (Swell Maps, Jacobites, Coils and Rockets, Buzzcocks), the mechanics is irrefutably well oiled on this third album. Acoustic and electric guitars most naturally melt to raise a sumptuous layer to a complex tangle of ballads and Rock n'roll songs in the pure English tradition. Subtle piano or viola arrangements confer nobility and melancholy to the works. Therefore let you catch by this strange carousel put together to leave only thin instants of respite, so much the lulls of this album are present only to better drive you in the whirls which follow them relentlessly. Different stages of this journey, in form of a crepuscular Road Movie are named Ain' t Goin' Nowhere, illicit crossing between Johnnys, E. Morricone and J. Thunders, Death & The girl, " Dead Love' s Shadow ", " Black Sorrow ", elegant triptych of captivating atmosphere circa Only Ones and other Nick Cave, " Nobody Knows ", surrounded by the ghosts of N. Sudden and B. Dylan, "Night Of The Vampire", the Roky Erickson's cover in the spirit of Mink Deville with its burning saxophones licks, " Fire ", "Way Down In Hell" which wobble dangerously between The Gun Club and The Stooges, Without You I' m Nothing on which the alchemy between electric guitars and acoustic ones reaches a symbiosis close to the best Dogs D' Amour's , " Slow Down ", acoustical intimist ballad flirting with late Nick Drake or Elliott Smith, "Black Sorrow" hinting The Spiders circa 73 . Add to this two bonus tracks such as very Dollsy western "Hot On Our Trail" and the splendid acoustical version of "Dead Love' s Shadow" where Guts Guttercat's piano and voice draw us back into the first L. COHEN, or even forgotten J. JARMUSH's soundtrack, and you get one of the brightest atmospheric rockn'roll albums of these last years!
