Cynics, The - Twelve Flights Up - New LP

Regular price $ 20.00 $ 0.00
New white vinyl pressing of The Cynics classic 1988 album Twelve Flights Up, chock full of garage rock scorchers and more reflective and jangly numbers, many things holding them all together, including quality songwriting and great sounding guitar sounds, the songwriting and the growling guitar/vocal duo of Gregg and Michael backed with the rhythms of Beki, Bill and Steve, the band in fine form.  While The Cynics were clearly looking back to the mid-1960s, they obviously helped bridge that decade to the raw and real side of 1990s.-- winch (green noise)

Originally released in 1988, The Cynics second album shows the band in a slightly lighter mood, combining scorching guitar tracks with some of the Cynics more pop material. Great originals like "Yeah!" and "Took Her Hand" combined with covers like "Abba" and "A Basket of Flowers" to prove for all time that the Cynics aren't just three-chord wonders, weaving some intricate guitar lines with some excellent harmonies, reminiscent of some of the band's earlier singles. This release also has its share of classic crushers from the Cynics. Cuts like "Creepin", "Erica" and "Nothin'" feature some great wall of fuzz guitar. This release shows the Cynics maturing, expanding their musical horizons without forsaking their garage roots. Truly a classic!
