TUXEDOMOON - “Ten Years In One Night (Live)”
Format: 180 gram 2LP with printed inner sleeves
Originally released in 1989 to celebrate the band s 10 year anniversary, this 2LP set, taken from various live performances throughout Europe and Japan from 1985-1988, is a kind of “best of”, looking back to the band s very beginnings as pioneers of the American post-punk scene, through to their eventual genre-defying evolution into full-fledged members of the international electronic / experimental scene by 1988. The track listing goes all the way back to the band s first singles (1978 s “Pinheads on the Move” and 1979 s “No Tears”), to a time when Tuxedomoon was in the habit of leading the avant-garde on both American coasts: from San Francisco s post-punk scene and NY s no wave. Soon after the release of 1981 s “Desire”, having tired of “California über alles” and Ronald Reagan, the band decided to leave the States for the more experimental pastures of Northern Europe. During this time the band released a series of discs on the Belgian-based Cramboy, proving themselves equally able to blaze trails in Europe as well. From this period come some of their most successful albums to date, including 1985 s “Holy Wars” from which we have “In A Manner of Speaking” and 1986 s “Ship Of Fools” from which we hear “Reedin Rightin Rhythmatic” . Right around the time of this album s release, Tuxedomoon went on a 15-year recording hiatus, reuniting again to release 2004 s brilliant “Cabin In The Sky” and eventually coming full circle by traveling together to record in their hometown of San Francisco.
