Limiñanas, The - (I've Got) Trouble In Mind LP
Record flippers be damned! Trouble in Mind proudly presents the long-awaited (& often requested) compilation of The Limiñanas out-of-print singles & compilation tracks, some making their first appearance on vinyl! Every non-album track you need is here, from the OOP Hozac single, to the TiM 2011 limited tour single to their appearances on various compilations & tributes, all in one handy place.
While singles collections can sometimes be dodgy, mismatched affairs, “(I’ve Got) Trouble In Mind” flows like a proper album, & that stands as a testament to the unwavering vision of core members (and husband & wife team) Lio & Marie. The band’s fusion of traditional French “ye ye” stylings with the cigarette-smoking cool of the New York underground of the late-Sixties has dazzled listeners since it’s inception making the live unit the toast of concert stages worldwide.
Between stunning originals like the black-laced banger “I’m Dead” & the Suicide-esque organ grinder “Je m’en vais” are stunning comp tracks like the band’s cover of tunes by the Beach Boys (from a MOJO magazine covermount cd), The Troggs (“Tu es a moi” from the 2012 RSD 4-way split), Jay Reatard (”An Ugly Death” from a French tribute album) & more! In addition, we get to hear unreleased tunes like the band’s cover of the Phil Spector tune “Christmas” originally performed by Darlene Love & the smoky, instrumental “A Dead Swan”
