Big Train & Waiting For The Man
ILSO 106 (7" vinyl) (limited edtion of only 300 on pink vinyl & numbered) $8.99
From their ‘77 start as volcanic punk rock upstarts the Dils through their run as dynamic Americana architects Rank & File, Chip & Tony Kinman excelled at a singular brand of creative rebellion which defied prevailing trends even as they redefined rock & roll. But with their thunderous late 80s tech-trance-noise duo Blackbird, the brothers kicked down the door, flipped over the table and delivered an entirely new approach to pop music, as classic track “Big Train” makes amply clear. Arguably at the very peak of their profoundly formidable powers, the Kinman’s ornery, brilliant defiance and impeccable artistry collide here with emphatic, resonant and wholly undeniable impact.
