The Cruel Sea - Australian Indie Rock


Conheci a banda há muito pouco tempo e fiquei muito bem impressionado com o som destes australianos. Originalmente um som instrumental de peso, uma mistura de Punk Rock, Blues, Hard Rock na medida certa. O som é bom! E quero compartilhar:


The Cruel Sea are an Australian indie rock band from Sydney formed in late 1987. Originally an instrumental-only band, they became more popular when fronted by vocalist Tex Perkins (Beasts of Bourbon and solo) in addition to Jim Elliott on drums, Ken Gormly on bass guitar, Dan Rumour on guitar and James Cruickshank on guitar and keyboards. Their popular albums are The Honeymoon Is Over (1993), Three Legged Dog (1995) and Over Easy (1998). Their best-known songs are "Better Get a Lawyer", "Takin' All Day", "The Honeymoon Is Over" and "Reckless Eyeballin'" – an instrumental track from their debut album Down Below that became the theme of Australian TV police drama, Blue Heelers. The band has won five ARIA Music Awards including four in 1994 for work associated with The Honeymoon Is Over.





The Honeymoon Is Over is the third studio album by Australian indie rock band The Cruel Sea, which was released in May 1993. The album was produced by the band, Tony Cohen and Mick Harvey for Red Eye Records. It peaked at No. 4 on the ARIA Albums Chart and has sold over 140,000 copies. Its lead single, "Black Stick" was released ahead of the album in December 1992 and peaked at No. 25 on the related Singles Chart. The title song, "The Honeymoon Is Over", was released in July 1993 as a single and reached the Top 50. It was followed by a cover of Tony Joe White's 1969 song, "Woman with Soul", in October which did not chart. The final single from the album, "Seems Twice", was issued in February 1994. In 1994, the band won five ARIA Awards: 'Single of the Year' and 'Song of the Year' for "The Honeymoon Is Over"; 'Album of the Year', 'Best Group' and 'Producer of the Year' for The Honeymoon Is Over.




Three Legged Dog, was produced by Cohen, the group and Paul McKercher (Clouds). It was released in April 1995 and peaked at No. 1. The Cruel Sea toured Canada, United States and Europe, followed by a support slot for The Rolling Stones on the Australian leg of their Voodoo Lounge Tour. Top 50 singles from Three Legged Dog were "Better Get a Lawyer" (November 1994), "Just a Man" (April 1995) and "Anybody But You" (July). The album won an ARIA in 1995 for 'Best Group' and two nominations, 'Album of the Year', and 'Best Cover Art' for Higgins and Jim Paton.

  1. E aí, galera, tudo na mais perfeita desordem?
    Depois de anos de hibernação, resolvi reativar o Plano Z, dessa vez com uma proposta um pouco diferente, meio que mixando o que eu fazia n’O Pântano Elétrico com a natureza mais light do PZ, ou seja, continuarei postando discos pra galera baixar, mas a postagem deverá ter um texto mais curto e direto do que eu costumava escrever lá no Pântano. Também pretendo não focar somente nos discos, postando o que der veneta, seja lá o que isso significa... rsrs
    Sendo assim, então, aqui está o convite para um passeio pelo Plano Z, para conferir as novas postagens. A gente se esbarra por lá.
    Grande abraço!
    Valeu!
    PS: desculpe pela mensagem genérica, mas com tantas visitas ainda por fazer ia ser complicado...
    Abração!
