OPIUM TAYLOR – Fade machine fade magazine CD
June 28, 2009
Who? yeah exactly. Opium Taylor were a Caulfield records band hailing from Lincoln, Nebraska (like Sideshow) and existed from the mid 90s to late 90s. ‘Fade Machine fade magazine’ was released in 1999 and saw the band travel to D.C. to record at Inner Ear with Don Zientara. It’s no suprise that this band have heavy Dischord leanings, in particular they pay service to the early Shudder To Think sound much the same as Party of Helicopters did. Caulfield records had these guys billed as ’Lungfish meets Pere Ubu’, and that’s a fair approximation in terms of their more unique approach.
As requested here is the Opium Taylor ‘Sun Foil’ 7″ released on Caulfield in 1995:
