Deathride '69 - The L.P. (1988)

I like dialogue between bloggers. So, this post is a responce to Fritz Die Spinne, who yesterday posted Deathride 69's "The CD", mentioning the LP version with different cover and a different track.
This is the first vinyl version of Deathride 69's album, released in 1998 on Gymnastic Recordings and the next year on vinyl again on Flipside records and on CD on Little Sister Records. Both 1989 versions are identical but the 1988 version not only has "Drums Along The Mohawk" (which was replaced in the later versions by "Chain of Abuse") but it contained earlier and rather different remixes. While 1989 versions are more "professionaly" remixed - i.e. the sound is more clear and the vocals in front of the instruments - the first version, although a bit muddy, is more richer instrumentaly. Both remixes are based on the bass of Don Diego, but in the earlier version there is a wider use of keyboards and studio effects and the sound is more raw, while on the next year's remix most of the synths/keyboards/studio sounds are vanished or hidden at the back, more layers of vocals are added and the sound is more guitar-oriented.

Deathride '69 were the band of Don Diego and Linda LaSabre, both ex-members of D.C's post-punk/hardcore band Grand Mal (if anyone's interested in their Fountain of Youth mLP...just let me know), relocated in Los Angeles in 1987, and very soon released "Elvis Christ" a 4-track EP (all of the tracks are in the LP/CD releases). I've already blubbered about the three versions of "The L.P"/"The CD", which in fact was their entire output (Linda LeSabre released a more or less solo EP in 1989 and in 1996 reformed Deathride 69 -without Don Diego).
The L.P. is an interesting album of goth/post-punk, by a band who knew how to play their instruments and surely how to avoid the exaggeration and posing that many bands of this genre were trapped into.
