One of the great lost bands? Classic Or Dud? Search & Destroy etc

Gringo, Saturday, 17 May 2003 23:02 (seventeen years ago) link

Picked up that box set that came out for a ridiculous $15 or something used -- figured for that price I could/should give it a chance. And it was pretty good -- sorta like them and Enuff Z'Nuff were weird twin brother bands with the same metaseventies-via-Beatles dreams somehow but Jellyfish were the ones with more (self-defined) artistic goals. Though Enuff Z'Nuff lasted longer in the end...

Too melodic.

Geir Funkro, Sunday, 18 May 2003 00:12 (seventeen years ago) link

Near classic, although the members who went on to form The Grays did a better job (and Jason Faulkner's solo albums aren't too terrible).

Paul Cox (paul cox), Sunday, 18 May 2003 00:26 (seventeen years ago) link

when i lived in LA, i had a really cute scenester friend who was in love with Jason Faulkner. when she was out at a bar with him, and really drunk, i think she either said, "I want to know what you taste like" or "I want to fuck you in the mouth"

haha, my kinda girl

JasonD (JasonD), Sunday, 18 May 2003 01:45 (seventeen years ago) link

Jellyfish's second album was rilly good*, and Jason Falkner's first solo album was rilly good, and the one Grays album was OK.

*for the playing and production; the lyrics and vocals were sorta bad.

I have the Imperial Drag album, and it's pretty good. I used to play "Are You a Boy or a Girl" when I used to dj. Has anyone else heard this?

Sean (Sean), Sunday, 18 May 2003 02:17 (seventeen years ago) link

I'm not so into the Imperial Drag record; it's just not songy enough.

But this thread inspired me to dig out the Merrymakers' Bubblegun (a great little Swedish power-glop album from 1997, produced by Jellyfish's Andy Sturmer). It's held up better than I thought it would; I thought the mid-'90s corporate-alternative production was a bit hard to stomach at the time, even though I liked the band.

Sean (Sean), Sunday, 18 May 2003 03:08 (seventeen years ago) link

I just put on Spilt Milk. I find Sturmer's voice a little boybandy, but I don't mind it if I recontextualize Jellyfish as a boyband making really ace proggy Beatles-pop.

Jody Beth Rosen (Jody Beth Rosen), Sunday, 18 May 2003 03:28 (seventeen years ago) link

Hey, and there's even a song on here called "Bye Bye Bye"!

Jody Beth Rosen (Jody Beth Rosen), Sunday, 18 May 2003 03:42 (seventeen years ago) link

Search - a hyper-goofy B-side called Ignorance Is Bliss that's about Mario Bros. Oh, and New Mistake. That's a practically perfect song.

Kim (Kim), Sunday, 18 May 2003 05:22 (seventeen years ago) link

Search this at least: Andy Sturmer has written and produced much of Puffy's output since 1999 or so, from (I think) the "Ta Ra Ra Ran" single onwards. It certainly helps to give them that almost-indie western-sounding song structure that sets them apart from other J-pop.

darren (darren), Sunday, 18 May 2003 11:27 (seventeen years ago) link

"spilt milk" is the bomb. one problem: andy sturmer has a nice voice, but why does he have to enunciate so precisely? jellyfish lyrics give me headaches. what the heck does "the ghost at number 1" mean? "sebrina paste & plato?"

Chris 'The Velvet Bingo' V (Chris V), Wednesday, 5 May 2004 11:15 (sixteen years ago) link

Wow. It's a year later and we're still talking about Jellyfish.

I think "The Ghost at Number 1" was all about how pathetic it is to over-idolise rock stars just because they're dead.

"Sabrina Paste & Plato" was just about high school lurrve.

Agreed - search for "Ignorance is Bliss" - it's the anti-Mario song.

And "Bellybutton" was a great boyband / powerpop album.

i adore spilt milk! i remember i got into the band because WHTG in new jersey [which is what i listened to when i wasnt checking out WPRB] played "he's my best friend" all the time. ditto for paul weller and matthew sweet.

"That is Why" was a nice song.

Alfred Soto (Alfred Soto), Tuesday, 29 November 2005 22:48 (fourteen years ago) link

...and "The Ghost at Number One" is a brilliant one.

Which reminds me: a friend of mine just asked me if the whole Spilt Milk record was written from the perspective of a ten year-old girl. I told him that since "New Mistake" was about loving the kid you didn't mean to have in the first place, I didn't think so. But...maybe it was. Anyone know?

Naive Teen Idol (Naive Teen Idol), Tuesday, 29 November 2005 22:55 (fourteen years ago) link

The video for "The King Is Half-Undressed" was pretty far out for my high school mind; picked up the record and dug it, even (especially?) the sappy ballad "I Wanna Stay Home". "Baby's Coming Back" has some nice pop staying power. For some reason I couldn't ever stand Spilt Milk, except for the single "Glutton of Sympathy".

What was with that weird early 90s pop-psych revival thing? World Party, the first Lenny Kravitz record, Jellyfish. For the most part it's a sound that hasn't dated well...nor has the clothing, cf. the cover of Bellybutton, which'll remind you of what it was like at the first Lollapalooza (cat in the hat hats, etc)

dyngus Tatis (aarana), Tuesday, 29 November 2005 22:57 (fourteen years ago) link

The singer in Jellyfish sounds too much like Richard Marx.

Kim (Kim), Tuesday, 29 November 2005 23:50 (fourteen years ago) link

Well I've been subscribed to the Jellyfish mailing list for the last 8 years so you'll get no argument from me as to their classic status. Two great albums and if you like those then the box set is well worth it though i would guess hard to find now. Great live also, sounded really impressive and could hit all those harmonies.

A lot of great related records - Umajets, Falkner solo, Moog Cookbook, Imperial Drag also worth checking out and of course Roger Manning has played keys for everyone (incl. Johhny Cash and the last Morrissey record). It's just a shame that Sturmer has been writing for others - Puffy, Brady Seals etc rather than doing something himself. Apparently he's just not interested in it.

mms (mms), Tuesday, 29 November 2005 23:56 (fourteen years ago) link

if the whole Spilt Milk record was written from the perspective of a ten year-old girl

I'm starting to think that the title Spilt Milk refers to the accident that produced the New Mistake and the rest of the album consists on the implications of it on everyone in its sphere, including the child herself.

But the album, while nearly classic, is nowhere near the gorgeosity of the Bellybutton album, and I give all the love in the world to "Baby's Comin' Back," which is in my someday-wedding mix.

Joseph McCombs (Joseph McCombs), Wednesday, 30 November 2005 00:41 (fourteen years ago) link

It's interesting -- I think there are just some people who hear knowing, metapoppy, wink-wink music like Jellyfish and find it thrilling, almost the way jazz fans would appreciate a great player brilliantly navigating chord changes. And like jazz, there are some (many, even) who just find the whole thing obnoxious and/or boring. There's definitely a sense of inside baseball.

I can't remember what they said about it in the box liners, but I would imagine that Nilsson's endorsement meant a lot to them.

Naive Teen Idol (Naive Teen Idol), Wednesday, 30 November 2005 01:32 (fourteen years ago) link

I have "Spilt Milk" and I like it, mostly. A bit Queen-y for me at times, maybe. My fave by far is "Russian Hill," a gorgeous song, and I also like "Joining a Fan Club." Just very musical at their best.

edd s hurt (ddduncan), Wednesday, 30 November 2005 01:42 (fourteen years ago) link

So were The Posies, Alfred, and, well, everyone else from the West Coast in the early '90s.

And Edd, for me the Queen thing is part of their appeal. And you see: I HATE QUEEN.

Naive Teen Idol (Naive Teen Idol), Wednesday, 30 November 2005 01:45 (fourteen years ago) link

Anybody got the Logans Sanctuary record that Manning did a few years back?I found it second-hand last week. Falkner plays guitar and sings on one song. Its not bad, Keyboard wank in parts but some of its almost funky, which Jellyfish never were, for all their virtues.
Bellybutton>Spilt Milk, btw.

David N (David N.), Wednesday, 30 November 2005 02:23 (fourteen years ago) link

I give all the love in the world to "Baby's Comin' Back," which is in my someday-wedding mix.

Better that than "I Wanna Stay Home", that's for sure...

Also, Falkner and Manning's TV Eyes synthpop band is really fun. Great songs, terrific arrangements -- alas, no record deal that I know of...

Naive Teen Idol (Naive Teen Idol), Wednesday, 30 November 2005 03:10 (fourteen years ago) link

yeah, maybe it's not exactly Queen-esque. I don't mind that one Queen album "Sheer Heart Attack," it's all right. anyway, what I most like about JF is the Jimmy Webb-ness of it all, I suppose, which is why I think "Russian Hill" is the best thing they ever did.

edd s hurt (ddduncan), Wednesday, 30 November 2005 03:14 (fourteen years ago) link

Queen are an abomination -- which is precisely what makes Jellyfish's appropriation of them on Spilt Milk so genius...

John Cocktolstoy (John Cocktolstoy), Wednesday, 30 November 2005 07:47 (fourteen years ago) link

Didn't know that Nilsson had said he liked them although they did a really good cover of Think About Your Troubles from The Point on a Nilsson tribute record so maybe it came off the back of that.

Some of the TV Eyes stuff is really good and by all accounts the couple of live shows they did were really cool with synced projections behind them whilst they were playing. I just think they might have missed the boat in terms of the songs since they have that kind of 80's electro thing going on that The Killers and so on have picked up on. It would have been perfect timing had they released it when it was first recorded (must be at least 3/4 years ago now). Hopefully someone will pick it up and I know they were remixing the record again so fingers crossed.

Also if you go here

Also on that weedshare site are 34 Imperial Drag demos. Basically everything they had on their one album and a whole lot more. Well worth listening to if you liked that record.

There has been noises about a Mac version of that weed stuff but there's nothing available yet.

The Manning record is good, my fave is What You Don't Know About The Girl. But then I'm a sucker for a one man band pop record.

Holy christ, yes. That song is like some piece of long lost AOR genius. When it comes to this sort of thing—melodic, hyper-arranged, metapop—Manning's really in a class of his own. It's kind of exciting, really.

Naive Teen Idol (Naive Teen Idol), Wednesday, 30 November 2005 17:24 (fourteen years ago) link

I, too, really liked Spilt Milk, all the while enduring a "wait, I HATE Queen" dissonance.

OUt of pure procrastination, I just read Manning's history of the Moog Cookbook on his website, it's like, such a sweet, positive thing.

I've never heard them tho.

Hunter (Hunter), Thursday, 1 December 2005 05:06 (fourteen years ago) link

What the fuck? Haven't I been in this thread before?

Of course they were CLASSIC. VERY VERY VERY CLASSIC!

Search everything apart from their greatest hits compilation. The only reason for destroying the latter is that it contains nothing crucial that isn't already on those two flawless albums.

Geir Hongro (GeirHong), Saturday, 3 December 2005 00:08 (fourteen years ago) link

Btw. whether or not you count Queen as a crucial influence I think depends on which album you prefer. There seems to be a lot of love here for "Spilt Milk", which is an excellent album IMO, and certainly heavily influenced by Queen.

However, their best work was "Bellybutton", which is more of a Beatles/Beach Boys/Byrds/Badfinger/Crowded House classic powerpop effort, only with somewhat less power and more pop than for instance Big Star.

I basically ignored them b/c of those stupid hats and their record covers...

john. a resident of chicago., Friday, 7 October 2011 02:19 (eight years ago) link

The big problem I have with Manning's recent solo albums is that every track seems to have either lack of editing or bad songwriting. It's like he got so excited about coming up with a good hook ("Wish It Would Rain", "Creeple People", "You Were Right") that he couldn't help but stretch the track out into a 5+ minute rhapsody, while the snappiest songs tend to have weak choruses ("The Loser", "What You Don't Know About the Girl"). Then there are the tracks that are in all around bad taste ("Dragonfly", "Til We Meet Again"). But at least most of Solid State Warrior/Land of Pure Imagination is memorable, unlike most of Catnip Dynamite.

Meanwhile Falkner's stuff is unimpeachable. TV Eyes is really fun - pretty mindblowing first listen if you are expecting something in the Jellyfish/power pop vein.

skip, Friday, 7 October 2011 03:51 (eight years ago) link

xp, i think their stupid hats contributed to their position as my least favourite band when i was ten years old.

I've never really appreciated Jellyfish for more than their obvious craft but Andy Sturmer's work with Puffy stands as some of the best pop music of our generation.

Mohombi Khush Hua (ShariVari), Friday, 7 October 2011 07:28 (eight years ago) link

Classic, imo. Spilt Milk has something ridiculous like a 6 song unfuckablewith run.

I know what you mean about Manning's album - once the shock wears off that it kinda sounds like a lost Bruce Johnston solo record, the songs aren't there. I'll say that What You Don't Know and Wish It Would Rain are the standouts, tho

a little over a week ago, I was in this record store in Knoxville and asking the owner for recommendations for "really ornate studio-as-instrument stuff - I'm going through a bigtime Van Dyke Parks/Brian Wilson/etc phase right now." he IMMEDIATELY asks me if I've heard Spilt Milk, I say "no, never heard of it." he starts cackling, jogs over to the only copy he has left, drops it on the stereo without saying a word, cues it up to "Bye Bye Bye," and presses play. I made it about a minute before literally shrieking "PLEASE SELL ME THIS RECORD."

I have now listened to the rest of it and fuck he was right. how in the hell did this record exist for 21 years without me knowing about it?

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 8 April 2014 02:48 (six years ago) link

Yep, Spilt Milk is kind of a masterclass in Pet Sounds/Sgt Pepper-esque baroque pop. However, imo one of the things it demonstrates is how you can make a record like that, and not really be popular. I think the "Ghost at Number One" is actually about that! (haha, "Mrs. Lynn, the fruit of your labor")
