Morphine Cure For Pain on 180g LP
"Low-rock" or "fuck-rock" were a few ways enigmatic Morphine frontman Mark Sandman used to describe his band's beat-inspired blues-jazz-rock holy racket. Along with Sandman's baritone vocal delivery and laconic two-string bass styling, co-founder Dana Colley played a saxophone as his lead instrument of choice instead of the expected guitar, creating a quirky and burning sensibility. Original drummer Jerome Deupree, who was replaced by percussionist Billy Conway during the recording of 1993's Cure For Pain, flushed out the unorthodox trio.
Cure For Pain is being released on vinyl as the second title on Light In The Attic's Modern Classics Recordings imprint.
