"Supah Jaianto" has great horn arrangements I think.

I also enjoy the bits in "Eye of the Volcano", but I think that might just be Laetitia's trombone double tracked in places, rather than a full horn section?


Second "Jaianto". I would also say:

"Self Portrait with the 'Electric Brain'" - really nice and jazzy, they certainly add spice to what may be a throwaway track. "Three Women", I know some of you probably think it's not that great, but the horns kill on this one.

Actually, Laetitia does not play any brass on FFS. It's all played by Joe Walters being teamed up with session horn players. But FFS, even though it's my least favorite, has anyway loads of horns, as do Chemical and Not Music. It's Margerine Eclipse that is spiked of horns altogether, 'cept for Laetitia's lone trombone contribution for Lab ever, "Margerine Melodie".

Marge, ep version

You're right. Hooray. We agree. lol

There was a thread last week about Mass Riff vs. Dear Marge. I liked the Mass Riff version better.

Re: All killer, no filler

Totally agree with you about those first 4 tracks on your list, they are excellent. And # 7, "Vortical Phonoteque". Really, I dig the whole Instant Zero and 2004 Tour EPs, and most of Margerine. CC actually had a handful of songs which I quite liked, "Nous vous demandons pardon", "Cellulose Sunshine" and to an extent "Valley Hi!" Haven't yet found anything on Not Music to latch onto, except maybe that Emperor Machine remix of "Silver Sands", which is probably the strongest track on the album, afaic.

I love both versions but Dear Marge always wins out for me. I always thought that the Dear Marge version was gold for ending Margerine Eclipse.

Thanks for Supah Jaianto. It is a great song. And as for the horn / trombone thing, I meant any brass in my original reference so this song gets in regardless.

"All killer, no filler"

I love that saying. I remember hearing it back in the nineties by some record executive. It is weird but it really made me think about the makeup of so many records, the second side of so many pop vinyl releases was often just bland stuff that you wouldn't switch the record for.
