Here Come The Warm Trypes
Feelies fanatics rejoice! Acute Records is putting out Music For Neighbors in April. It’s a pretty much comprehensive overview of the Trypes, a psychedelic band that existed for a short period in the early 80s and featured various Feelies (as well as future members of Speed The Plough). I’ll have more to say about this fab comp in the next month or so, but as a taster, here’s a live show recorded at Folk City in 1983. In Music For Neighbors’ liners, Yo La Tengo’s Ira Kaplan laments the fact that the Trypes’ cover of Eno’s “Here Come The Warm Jets” is missing. Well, Ira (and the rest of you), here it is, kicking off a short-but-very-sweet set. It’s a note-perfect cover — ace drummer Stan Demeski has studied those all-important drum fills! The rest of the tape is great too, including a pounding rendition of George Harrison’s “Love You To.” Thanks to Jesse for sharing!
