This is probably a stupid question, but has anyone here listened to 10cc? I read an article in the new Uncut about them and they were raving about their 1974 album "Sheet Music". It naturally peaked my curiosity and i listened to a copy and was impressed. But what really got me was the similarity to DA era Horrendous Disc. Is this a valid note, or am i just crazy? Curious what other people think, if anything.

My opinion.... Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

There's something kind of gross about Dr. Sticky posting a thread about 10cc, don't you think? Shocked


(truthfully, don't know them past the hits.... and the rather cool Animalympics soundtrack from ages ago now....)

Didn't they do that song "I'm Not in Love"?
yes, they did............

don't know much about them, but THIS is a very cool lyric of one of their songs:

Peace In Our Time
Thank you for the gift
The freedom to wonder
In search of the light
Are we gonna let it shine
Forgiveness is the key
The perfect emotion
Will you show us the way
To peace in our time

Where the wild wind blows
The deserts are shiftin'
And the seed will grow
In the sands of time
From the darkest night
A new day is dawning
It's a long long way
To peace in our time

Tell me where can we find
Peace in our - in our time
Where can we find
Peace in our time

From a distant shore
Voices are crying
Can you hear them call
Are we gonna light their way
Salvation is the key
We have to keep tryin'
What we need right now
Peace in our time

Tell me where can we find
Peace in our - in our time
Where can we find
Peace in our time

Thank you for the chance
To light up the darkness
Leading the way
Show us to the promised land
Tear down these walls
That keep us imprisoned
What we're prayin' for
Is peace in our time

Tell me where can we find
Peace in our - in our time
Where can we find
Peace in our time

like
walkin' in the rain and the snow
when there's nowhere to go
when you feel just like a part of you is dyin'
and you're lookin' for the answer in her eyes
you think she wants to break up
and she says she wants to make up..

ooooooooooooo, you made me love you
ooooooooooooo, you've got a way
ooooooooooooo, you have me crawlin'
up the walls.............







(hey, that's from memory, so if I got a word or two wrong, shoot me Smile )

Correction, JiMInY.... Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

LiveD in a cave....

Anyway, off the top of my head: Fairly clever pop band from the '70s (mostly), the members of which also wrote a number of songs for others ("For Your Love" -- or, rather, "FawYawLove" -- would be a prime example). I found this summary as well:

"10 CC were a British band formed during the heydays of progressive-rock and hard-rock by four veteran songwriters and multi-instrumentalists: Graham Gouldman (author of the Yardbirds' masterpieces and of several Hollies' hits, and of one solo album, The Graham Gouldman Thing, in 196Cool , Lol Creme, Eric Stewart (who in 1965 had topped the charts with with the Mindbenders' Game Of Love) and Kevin Godley.

"They debuted with the demented bubblegum hits There Ain't No Umbopo (credited to the Crazy Elephant) and Neanderthal Man (1970), from the album Songs (Fontana, 1970) credited to the Hot Legs. They then changed name to 10CC for Donna (1972), the retro` ballad that established them at top of the charts and that coined their kind of parodistic kitsch. The album 10cc (Mercury, 1973) spawned another hit, Rubber Bullets (a hilarious spoof on Jailhouse Rock) and The Dean And I.

"After offering more of the same with Sheet Music (1974), in particular the Wall Street Shuffle, and experimenting with even crazier arrangements, the foursome embraced the high-tech studio a` la Sparks and turned The Original Soundtrack (1975) into a stylistic tour de force, albeit still rooted in their weird sense of humour and in their poppy melodies. I'm Not In Love (a far more serious ballad, written by Gouldman and Stewart, and featuring a glittering sound that was the result of a veritable studio collage) even became a hit, while the extended collages of Une Nuite A Paris (a sort of grotesque operetta a` la Queen) and Life Is A Minestrone straddle the line between Frank Zappa's operettas and the Beatles' Abbey Road.

"Cartoonish wit and four-part vocal harmonies made them quite unique in their age, occasionally worthy successors of the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band. How Dare You (1976), which includes the self-parodistic Art For Art's Sake and I'm Mandy Fly Me, Godley and Creme launched a separate career with the triple-album rock opera Consequences (Polydor, 1976), that used a new technique to produce symphonic, choral and natural sounds, and pretentiously bizarre albums such as L (197Cool , Freeze Frame (Polydor, 1979), containing An Englishman In New York, Ismism (1981), Birds Of Prey (1983) and Goodbye Blue Sky (Polydor, 198Cool ; while 10cc continued with Deceptive Bends (1977), Bloody Tourists (197Cool , with Dreadlock Holiday, Look Here (1980), 10 Out of 10 (1981), Windows In The Jungle (1983), totally ignored despite Food For Thought.

"The foursome reformed the original 10cc for the terrible Meanwhile (Phonogram, 1992). Then the two couples continued their separate adventures, 10cc releasing Mirror Mirror (Avex, 1995) and Godley/Creme concentrating on their successful career as directors of videos. Images (Spectrum, 1993) is an anthology of Godley and Creme."

(for a caveman like me)

I'm a neandrethal man
Your a neandrethal girl
Lets make neandrethal love
In our neandrethal world..........

Its no match for Suzi Quatros "Primitive Love"
but it'll do.
Thx-
jimIny

Sheet Music does sound interesting- may have to glom onto that somehow.
