Curse & Make Up (TRI 12)

Covers ....

The 3rd album, chock-a-block full of great songs including the classic Cold Calling.
The band lost it’s original bassist, Tomoko Yamashita, & became a 5 piece that sounded like ‘an intensile shock wave of gutter crawling psychedelic tinged grunge jazz punk’.
Well, we liked it!
The band continued after the 5 piece called it a day, & much material went unrecorded in the studio.

Highly recommended album!

Growing Old & Absurd in East London (TRI 11)

Covers ....

This is Diary’s 2nd album, taking the form of a song cycle, recorded in 1998.

The band retained it’s first line up & it seems more ‘mature’ in feel, containing some beautiful music i.e. Swan Planet & the’ ‘controversial’ Just Another Feminist Hero.

Eight tracks recorded with the first line up, worthy of more attention….

tracklist
1. Coldharbour Light
2. Feminist Hero
3. Swan Planet
4. Fingers
5. Incident Near Aldgate
6. Mile End Wasted
7. Docklands Light Railway Children
8. Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams

Brown Envelope (TRI 5)

5

Diary were a different kettle of fish than that  to be found on the London gig circuit in the late ’90s & early noughties.
Fronted by sometime Fluxus poet John Plant, their first album ‘Got to Get In Love (By Tuesday)’ was described by Wire reviewer Ben Watson as ‘the only prole art threat in town’. Post punk & art rock are lazy descriptives of a unique sounding band. John Peel put an appeal out on his radio show for more by Diary, after losing a demo tape.
Chronologically the last of their four albums, gathering up loose ends of various line ups & rare tracks. (See other entries)

tracklist
1. The Old Git Song
2. Mozart
3. Hyperballad
4. Docklands Light Railway Children
5. Radio Silence
6. High Holborn Silver Lining
7. Emmy Hemmings
8. Bomb The Boss
9. Leaving the 21st Century
10. Mad Pride
