TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – ‘The Contino Sessions’ – DEATH IN VEGAS (1999)

Remarkable albums from the past…

‘The Contino Sessions’ by DEATH IN VEGAS
Released: 13 September / second longplayer

NME review: “In 1963, Andy Warhol said, “I like boring things. I like things to be exactly the same over and over again.” Warhol didn’t mean that he was bored by things, he meant that
the more you look or listen to exactly the same thing, the more the meaning goes away, and
the better and emptier you feel. Richard Fearless, 27, committed Warhol fan, the man who is ostensibly Death In Vegas and the man who has created the most astonishing album you’re likely to hear all year, knows exactly what the pop artist meant. He and his Death In Vegas partner, Tim Holmes, know that in music today, meaning is nothing and feeling is everything… ‘The Contino Sessions’ can mean whatever you want it to. All we know is that it feels amazing. Warhol also said that everyone would be famous for 15 minutes. Death In Vegas‘ glory starts now.”
– Score: 4,5/5 – Full review here

TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: This is addictive music for hungry minds. Adding gloomy voices such as Iggy Pop‘s and Bobby Gillepsie‘s one, DIV tripled the mystifying effect of their spooky journey. Top soundtrack to play at night in a dark room, on your earphones. Loud!
