Pale Saints appeared on some micro-indie compilations in 1988 and early 1989, but it was a demo that enticed the 4AD label's Ivo Watts-Russell, who without haste caught a gig and consequently signed the band (along with support act Lush). Watts-Russell was particularly taken with "Sight of You," and in a few months, a remixed/retouched version of the drifting ballad led Pale Saints' debut EP. Almost sickly sweet and seemingly innocent until Ian Masters' chorister-like voice lets slip a covetous blood-soaked fantasy -- the escalation from "bad"/"sad" to "red/"dead" is easy to miss -- "Sight of You" went over well, landed on BBC DJ John Peel's listener-driven Festive 50 for 1989, and was covered by Ride. The following February, coincidentally between the recording and broadcast of Ride's take for a Peel session, "Sight of You" was placed in a new context on The Comforts of Madness. Perhaps seen as too significant to be left off, and downplayed so as to not overstress its signature status, "Sight of You" was tucked deep into the LP's second side, thereby emphasizing the many other colors of frayed-nerve dream pop -- as filtered through avant-folk, West Coast psychedelia, the Paisley Underground, power pop, and C-86 -- the trio had to offer. The album creates a kind of whiplash effect by starting with a violent existential tantrum, recharging with a swirling assault that gathers steam (concluding with "I'll destroy you," or something else suggesting emotional rupture), and halting with a chilling and diaphanous ballad cast in a soft shimmer (line one: "You're body's cold"). The rest of the sequence moves from one extreme to another, from the resemblance of a sugared-up Dream Syndicate in a wind tunnel to sighing and strumming through plaintive material ripe for This Mortal Coil picking. All the turbulence is mitigated by Masters' singular tenor, and further eased from song to song with Bad Moon Rising-style noise segues and subtle crossfading. These first steps still delight, startle, and chill.

Shoegaze: Sturm und Stille

Verschiedenere Gesichter als die des Shoegaze gibt es wohl nirgendwo sonst: Diese Spielart der Rockmusik, die zu Beginn der 90er Jahre in England aufblühte, war ein faszinierendes Kräftemessen zwischen gewaltig klirrenden Gitarren und hauchzarten Stimmen. Von Cocteau Twins und The Jesus & Mary Chain, seinen Vorläufern, bis hin zu seinen Verfechtern My Bloody Valentine, Ride oder Slowdive, ist der Shoegaze immer noch gut unterwegs.

Nick Cave, das Unkraut auf der Starwiese

Nick Cave und seine Bad Seeds gelten nach wie vor als eines der produktivsten Abenteuer aus der Postpunk-Ära. Schon Ende der 80er Jahre erreichte die betörend tiefe Stimme des Australiers einen gewissen Höhepunkt unter all den wütenden Wiederaufnahmen, Klavierballaden und schweißgetränktem Rock’n’roll. Im Laufe der Jahre wurde der Cave immer mehr Crooner, irgendetwas zwischen einem punkigen Frank Sinatra und einem enthaltsamen Johnny Cash…

New Order, vom Keller auf die Tanzfläche

Wie wurde die dunkelste Band der Punk-Ära zu den Königen der Tanzfläche? New Order wurden in den frühen 80ern aus der Asche von Joy Division geboren, symbolisieren eine der ersten erfolgreichen Verbindungen zwischen Rock und Dance Music und schufen den makellosen Soundtrack des mürrischen Englands unter Margaret Thatcher.
