Oh man, what a dead-on tight harmony they could create. Those first two Warners LP's, produced by Brian Eno, were incredible.You may need to create a new series, "Siblings Who Sing," or something of that nature.
Oh, the married menThe married menMakes me feel like a girl againTo run with the married men
I LOVE the Roches!
I'd recommend the first four albums without hesitation. In addition to their eponymous debut, "Keep on Doing", "Another World", and "Nurds" are all very worthy. Later records, of which there are quite a few, occasionally hit the mark, but not nearly as consistently as these. Deep, quirky, fun, beautiful, very special stuff.
it's NOT the festival holiday season unless the following two songs play at least ONCE (but many more times if i have a say)the christians and the pagans: dar williamsand of coursehallelujah chorus: the roches
Robert Fripp, not Eno, produced the first records. Which are great.
My bad, C, it was a brain fart. Thanks for the gentle correction.
Love the Hammond Song. Love the girls.
Another vote for the Hammond Song. I remember interviewing Terry Hall during my college radio days and finding out that he was such a huge fan that he covered the song with the Colourfield.
The Hammond Song is one of the few recordings that never leaves my listening rotation - i.e for maybe 25 years? One magical night I'll always remember was seeing the Roches perform it at Kenny's Castaways on Bleecker Street (with people packed to the rafters) - and they landed their record deal with Warners that week. Nice to have another look at these beautiful women in their youth.
We all love the Hammond song , too.
Robert Fripp, Brian Eno. Easy to confuse I guess. I didn't realize Fripp was involved with the Roches.
