    OR ORDER Time via top SPURTS The Richard Hell Story 21 track career retrospective Sire Rhino 2005 18 95 Audio Special signed by Richard Hell This CD is the collection that Richard conceived as his only recording as if he d never put out anything else He hasn t actually put out much else two studio recordings Blank Generation 1977 and Destiny Street 1982 and one collection of the outtakes demos and live tracks that he thought were worth preserving when he retired from music in 1984 R I P which was expanded by a couple of cuts and a live disk to make the Time double CD in 2002 Then there was the one off three week emergence from retirement in 1992 to write and record Dim Stars with Thurston Moore and Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth and Don Fleming of Gumball Apart from the Neon Boys which pre Television three piece with Tom Verlaine and Billy Ficca never played a gig but recorded three Hell demos and two or three stray singles that s it for his recordings Not only is the output small but no one of the collections fully satisfied Hell He s always wished he could use that full set of his output as raw material to compile a more or less two record set by vinyl standards that was as good as he could make it disposing of any regrets and all excuses It took a few years of maneuvering to recover rights and get required go aheads but he s been able to fulfill this wish with Spurts Richard regards it as his only true record the others being the equivalent of bootleg versions of the studio sessions that went into the recording of Spurts If technically a best of it contains about half the songs Richard ever wrote All songs have been scrupulously remastered a third of them have been remixed and a couple have been re edited This is the ur Richard Hell album the Platonic ideal

Street contains some of his best and most popular songs such as The Kid with the Replaceable Head and Time but Richard always felt dissatisfied with the sound of the album He was in the worst depths of his drug dependency at the time it was made and couldn t muster enough commitment to bother showing up for many days of the recording sessions He d call in and order more guitar tracks Then in 2004 Hell was able to recover rights to the album He deliberately let it go out of print pending a hypothetical improved version to re release Two years later he discovered a two track mix of original 1982 rhythm tracks bass drums and two rhythm guitars without any vocals or solos or further guitar Hell realized this created an opportunity to re make the record on the foundation of the original band Destiny Street Repaired is the result It s a freshly recorded edited and mixed version of Destiny Street using players of the highest caliber to replace the undifferentiated multi overdubbed extended guitar solos of the original and presenting all new vocals and some new edits and arrangements by Hell Relevant too is that the new guitar players Bill Frisell Ivan Julian and Marc Ribot were all greatly admired by and share musical values with Robert Quine the deceased main soloist in Richard s original band the Voidoids In an unprecedented move Hell has grabbed the best part of a twenty seven year old recording and mixed in fresh guitar genius and brilliant new vocals and production to fulfill the original music s tremendous potential Destiny Street Repaired We ve made a page on

    derelict spaces within abandoned elevated railway brick arches Meanwhile Richard and Jim kicked around some ideas for artworks but they could only discover what might really work in practice after Richard arrived in Glasgow and they could start fooling around in Jim s studio The art show was mostly conceived and virtually entirely painted constructed in the three days April 17 19 Richard was in Glasgow before the show opened on April 20 Below are a few shots from Richard s first and third day in the studio prior to the show opening on the fourth day When Richard arrived the gallery was being painted but the poetry club with bar and dancefloor was still a construction site Amazingly the club was fully completed for Richard s inaugural reading there on the night of the 20th The pictures below of the venue were taken on the afternoon of that day pre opening The only artworks in the show that were created in advance are the seven portfolios of seven screenprints each Each separate print in a portfolio is identical with the six others except for a color variation in each of the seven prints above are the black and the yellow examples Closer look In case you re interested that s Michel Houellebecq upside down in the screenprints One way of saying it JL RH was another Jim s studio April 19 The show opens tomorrow RH logo painting in progress the night before the show This is after dark the night of the 19th before the show opens on the 20th The major painting has just begun You can see the finished painting at the GALLERY installation page That s faithful brilliant aide and driver Jason Macphail with Jim The logo painting has been moved up onto sawhorses for

    club as it looked the summer before it closed which is pretty much just the way it has looked since it became known in the mid 70s The photographs are by John Putnam and there is a small amount of text by Christopher D Salyers also scattered through the book Hell supplied the 1 000 word intro Here s a paragraph from it Above all though the effect of the surfaces of CBGB s dark crazed insides is eerie it s haunting It s like a dead quiet chillingly colorful cemetary Or autopsy all of compacted history sliced open It s not so much that the graffiti evokes the endless procession of individual kids who ve attended the club but that it evokes their absence their faceless selves buried under the next pretty layer of pointless assertion The walls are an onslaught of death and futility as much as they are of life and vitality The kids believed themselves to be unique individuals the walls they covered with that claim are the proof that it s a delusion Or is this what we knew all along and the walls are sites of reveling in it reveling in undifferentiation Because it does seem sweet and innocent and loveable too You can view some page samples from the book ISBN 0 9772827 5 9 ORDER CBGB

Rene Ricard and Whitney Bedford Richard contributed a piercing 1500 word essay entitled Sadness Notes It s about art and sadness but doesn t refer to any of the paintings though rather to such thinkers and writers as Schopenhauer Paul Verlaine Borges and Rene Ricard Hell suggests sadness just barely defeats funniness in the metaphysical sweepstakes He also includes some personal anecdotes Two sorts of experience are the most sad though they are related complexly The first is the sadness of innocence which of course like everything in language and human existence except poetry spiritual transport only exists in relation to its violation its loss absence or opposing counterpart The other is the sadness of betrayal not of being betrayed but rather the act of betraying another These plights are built deeply into our self conception of course paradise and its loss the human betrayal of God which is another aspect of the biblical description of our being and its origins though Judas is a purer example I have two stories about the first type of sadness both of which have to do with my daughter and which are moments that felt gorgeously sad The first one was funny too When Ruby was around three years old one day I was alone with her in an elevator going down on our way to the playground in the park I m tall and as I spoke to her in order to see her face to face I squatted down on my haunches She immediately did the same thing defeating my purpose She thought that if I did it it must be the proper way to behave Another time when she was a small child and had done something wrong misbehaved somehow I had the sudden realization that There will come a time when she won t be forgiven ISBN 0 945558 36 8 ORDER sad songs via OR ORDER
