Emergency Third Rail Power Trip/Explosions in the Glass Palace


Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • This CD combines the contents of both releases by the original lineup of Davis, California's Rain Parade, a 1983 album and a 1984 EP. Rain Parade was one of the first and finest avatars of the short-lived Paisley Underground scene. After these records, founder/guitarist David Roback left the band in the care of his bass-playing brother Matt. David went on to form Opal, the cult-favorite duo that later mutated into the more commercially successful Mazzy Star.
  • Rain Parade made some good records after David Roback's departure, but his trademark sound left with him. The lengthy songs on EMERGENCY and EXPLOSIONS drone hypnotically, exploring and refining the hallucinatory trails blazed by such obvious influences as Love, Can, and the third Velvet Underground album. Though they rely less on melody than they do on the evocative powers of sound and mood, these songs are nonetheless entirely remarkable--particularly "Look at Merri" and the gloriously narcotic "No Easy Way Down."
Professional Reviews
Q (5/92, p.98) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...a blissed-out Big Star, pitching Mersey Beat against golden electric folk and Syd Barrett-style introspection..."
