So, are they any good? I noticed their debut album is 90 in that Spin Alternative 100 list. I never could make it past that cutesy first song. It had a really annoying hip camp counselor vibe.

"We are Maggie and Terre and Suzzy
Maggie and Terre and Suzzy Roche
we don't give out our ages
and we don't give out our phone numbers
give out our phone numbers
sometimes our voices give out
but not our ages and our phone numbers"

Oh, shut the fuck up. So, does it get a lot better after that?

I used to like them quite a bit. Now I have more trouble getting past the cutesy stuff. "Hamond Song," from their first album, is quite good. I think their style of harmonizing is so removed from what musical fashions have been that it's hard to really hear them properly, even when they are at their best. I wouldn't mind getting a copy of the album they did with King Crimson as their backing band--probably the best overall album I have heard by them.

Rockist Scientist, Saturday, 31 May 2003 14:08 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

I think I would probably end up comparing them unfavorably with the Kate & Anna McGarrigle, no matter what they did.

Arthur (Arthur), Saturday, 31 May 2003 14:18 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

Arthur, do yourself a favor & skip Track 1 & give the rest of the album a whirl. The first song is as unbearably cutesy as it gets (tho there are some cute moments that, given your disposition re: the first track, you might find yourself gagging on).

I got Nurds, and there's some cute songs on that, though sometimes it gets too corny (the camp counselor thing is right, though sometimes the subject matter transcends it). I'm definitely curious to hear more.

I think that album cover is what really turned me against them. They just just looked so incredibly lame in 1979.

I just did a ILM search and it's full of posts from Nathalie talking about how crap they are. Ha!

oh man, "Hammond Song" is incredible, like, maybe the best song ever. Funny, I've had that album for a few years now, and kind of hated it for a while, but it sure hit me (especially that song) this year. I thought they sounded like a satanic a capella group, which I thought was lame. And then I realized that I REALLY LIKE satanic a capella groups. And dare I say Robert Fripp's finest moment? DARE I?
Incidentally, there's a longish essay on "Hammond Song" in the Oxford American music issue this year.

artdamages, Friday, 2 November 2007 14:28 (nine years ago) Permalink

yeah, do it! again, i really did not like it the first few times I heard it. A friend gave it to me randomly and for the life of me, I couldn't figure out why. But it kept popping up on my itunes whenever I had it on shuffle and it won me over big time. Fun fact that I learned from that Oxford America essay -- Paul Simon discovered them! They sang on Rhymin' Simon. Weird.

tylerw, Friday, 2 November 2007 14:38 (nine years ago) Permalink

i do like the singing, but right after hammond is another cornball song about waitressing or whatever

"The Train" is fucking awesome. "Hammond Song" got a nice write-up in the new Music Issue of The Oxford American (by John Jeremiah Sullivan), and appears at the end of the issue's free CD.

i haven't pulled out these LPs in years. remember really liking 1975's "seductive reasoning" the best. "west virginia" and "telephone bill" were good IIRC. produced by paul simon, and sounds like his first solo LP at times (that is a GOOD thing).

so odd that the s/t album was produced by robert fripp! how did that happen? anyway aside from "hammond song" i can't remember much of anything from that or any subsequent LPs.

their 80s and 90s albums were staples of bargain used CD bins for years. probably still are.

I used to sing these songs with my older sister to practice harmonies, even though I am not entirely crazy about them. Roxy and I cover the song Married Men when we do our sister folk music project, Easy Company, which rarely gets any of our attention.

I always liked their song Mr. Sellack, which begs a boss to give them their old job back:

Oh Mr Sellack
Can I have my job back?
I've run out of money again
Last time I saw you
I was singing Hallelujah!
I'm so glad to be leavin' this restaurant

Now, the only thing I want
Is to have my old job back again
I'll clean the tables
I'll do the creams
I'll get down on my knees
and scrub behind the steam table

...

Now the only thing I want
Is to have my old job back again
I won't be nasty to customers no more
When they send their burger back I'll tell them that
I'm sorry

Waiting tables ain't that bad
Since I've seen you last, I've waited
For some things that you would not believe
To come true

"Jill of All Trades" is one of my favorite songs ever...I first heard it through the gorgeous cover by Liquorice, and then after hearing the original, I realized that Liquorice got some of the key lyrics wrong. For example, Jenny sings, "Running into love, south of the border. Why you wanna get stuck with a needle and a kiss?" But the original goes, "Running into *luck*, south of the border. Why you wanna get stuck with a needle and a *kid*?"...which is a completely brilliant line, obliquely referring to an abortion performed in Mexico (presumably pre-Roe v. Wade), using mid-sentence rhymes ("luck" with "stuck"), and using two meanings of "stuck" (pricked with a sewing needle, and left with a kid). You don't find songwriting this good very often, folks!

the TRUE first album, seductive reasoning, is by far the best IMO (I always think of ma nuit chez maud with that title). esp. the ballads.

lots of unexpected melodic twists in here. malachy's is great, so is down the dream.

if i had to place their sensibility i'd say the closest thing would be loudon wainwright III. he's an acquired taste too.

espring (amateurist), Tuesday, 22 April 2014 17:50 (three years ago) Permalink

And of course, Loudon was with Suzzy for a long time and had a daughter with her.

Naive Teen Idol, Wednesday, 23 April 2014 03:47 (three years ago) Permalink

ok, that I did _not_ know. it makes almost too much sense.

espring (amateurist), Wednesday, 23 April 2014 04:07 (three years ago) Permalink

Yeah, their daughter is a singer-songwriter too, Lucy Wainwright-Roche. She's started recording, but U haven't heard her much yet (also performs with her Mom in the Mountain Stage archives).

Gotta say the first (trio) Roches album was the only thing that got me up and going to an early morning class I dreaded: as written, "Man on a Train"'s verses were so scared (next to a beer-drinking, NY Post-reading man, and wanting, somewhat desperately sounding, "to say, 'Let's have a party,' but I can't because I'm so afraid/Of the man on the train," and shoving into the chorus, "Once you get on, you can never get off/Of the commuter train," so why should that get my ass all the way to class? Admitting the need for company, fear of bridging gaps, and those harmonies rising up, taking me, and the singers' own hopes/fears---aw, it worked, every time, even though I did as badly in the class as prophesied (what the hell, I passed).
"Quitting Time" was real good too, the sound of freeedom; balancing "Man" and the one about "can I have my old job back"--- just about the whole LP was fine ( producer Fripp occasionally used a bit of his own guitar and Larry Fast's Synergy synth, thus maybe inventing folktronica in passing).

tylerw, Wednesday, 23 April 2014 15:39 (three years ago) Permalink

& yeah, comparing loudon and the roches makes a lot of sense aesthetically to me. something about the almost self-sabotaging sense of humor (like a weird joke in the middle of what seems like an utterly serious song) that makes them totally fascinating/unique. probably what makes them an acquired taste too.

tylerw, Wednesday, 23 April 2014 15:43 (three years ago) Permalink

Yeah, it's good, and still around, though maybe as cut-out. Maggie and Terre took Paul Simon's class on songwriting, and then they made this (dunno if he helped 'em get a deal).

dow, Wednesday, 23 April 2014 19:26 (three years ago) Permalink

"seductive reasoning" LP was produced by simon/roy halee (sp?) and there are the same nice and oddball production touches you find on the first few paul simon solo LPs. like a glass harmonica coming in on the verses of one song. but not as inventive as the fripp production of the first proper "roches" album.

"west virginia" and "malachy" are for all time. lots of songs on that record about a young woman's emerging sexuality. à la wainwright, it mixes lyricism with funny frankness. amusingly distanced description of old boyfriends, etc.

espring (amateurist), Thursday, 24 April 2014 07:40 (three years ago) Permalink

Forgot Simon co-produced it. Speaking of Wainwrights and emergence, The McGarrigle Hour, from 1999, is a family get-together, with sonically amicable Loudie and Kate, Anna, maybe the recording debut of Rufus and Martha, plus other relatives and friends, incl. Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris. Pretty, sometimes luvly, wry, contemplative, taking a turn with young Martha's epic "Year of The Dragon," written to/at Dad---reminds me of Sally and Don on Mad Men (last scenes of the latest ep notwithstanding).

Basically what Michael B posted in the last revive... I like the hip camp counsellor vibe. The harmonies are weird, unexpected, super-polished in places and clashy in others. Sometimes the girls sing the same notes, sometimes two drop out quite suddenly to leave just one. Other times they scatter and make the most beautiful sound. And yeah, Fripp just turns up and does his thing and it's like the future being beamed into a 1970s American kitchen.

So sorry to hear this, I grew up listening to the first two Roches albums - the first is covered very well upthread, but the 'Nurds' is also absolutely worth checking out. The title track starts off sort of MOR and almost gets like Roches do Kleenex/LiLiPUT after a bit which is pretty unexpected if you're going through their LPs in order.
