Roll Over Beethoven…This is Bram Tchaikovsky




I was looking for inspiration today so I took it from this post over at Teenage Kicks which featured You Beat The Hell Outta Me and Dancing The Night Away by The Motors. As good as The Motors were I’ve never heard anything from them as good as former member Bram Tchaikovsky’s Girl Of My Dreams (1979). From 1980, and presumably not featuring Bram Tchaikovsky, Love and Loneliness is one of my favourite Motors songs with a BIG sound.

mp3: Bram Tchaikovsky – Girl Of My Dreams

mp3: The Motors – Love and Loneliness

Buy the Motors here. I think you need to look at Ebay for Bram Tchaikovsky.

I have cheated a little bit on this post. The scans above are taken from the picture sleeves of my singles but both tracks are taken from CD’s and are slightly longer than the single versions.

Ah now, that BT track is NICE.

Mick said...

Bless you, Davy. And to think I've just been rude about you over at Teenage Kicks (well, sort of). Now YOU go to bed :)

Davy H said...

Cushty Michael, cushty.

Hey, it's Motors-related revival week! (It's OK Davy, he only told me not to listen to you when you said 'Love And Loneliness' wasn't any good).Yes, the BT track is melodic and catchy (and I have a weakness for tracks with sleigh bells in them, cos it reminds me of Christmas ;-)).
Splendid keyboards in the Motors track, too (but I still prefer their punky edge).

Can't go wrong with Tchaikovsky

THE VINYL DISTRICT said...

a great set of tunes there....

iain said...

I totally ADORE "Love And Loneliness", you're right, it's just such a huge sounding record...
Wasn't it Jimmy Iovine who produced it? That might explain a lot....

Mick said...

Rinjo and Jon,
You're both right. Good powerpop blog you have, Rinjo.

Iain,
You're right, too. The label say's produced by Jimmy Iovine & The Motors.

It's the obvious choice but I've been meaning to post the mighty 'Airport' for a long while. Now might be the time.

iain said...

I do love "Airport", but love "Forget About You" just that little bit more....mainly for the sticker on the red vinyl 12" that said: "The Vinyl's red, the label's blue, it's the Motors new single, Forget About You!"

Crash Calloway said...

I've got that Bram single somewhere but haven't listened to it in years. What a gem.

Mick said...

Welcome back, Crash. We were worried about you and Tutu Vicar.

Mick said...

Iain,
My 12" of Dancing With Myself by Fingerprintz has a sticker that says "It's not the colour of the record that matters, it's the colour of your money that counts. See greenie enclosed." This was in the days when pound notes still existed. Could they be offering their fans cashback? Nope, it was a green record after all.

iain said...

Mick, have you "done" that fingerprintz 12" yet? There's a track on the other side that's just GREAT....it's called "pete's feet" or something like that....
And it was released at almost exactly the same time as the motors 12", Virgin obviously had a PR person whose job it was to think up nifty slogans to go on stickers!
:)

Mick said...

I haven't done Fingerprintz yet but they're on my list. I donated Dancing With Myself to the Vinyl Villain before I started my own blog but the link is dead now. I think when I "do" it I will feature all three tracks; the song you like is called "Sean's New Shoes" and there's an instrumental called "Sync Unit".

iain said...

"Seans new Shoes" Ha! i was *so* nearly there....
The other thing I remember Fingerprintz being on was that Virgin Sampler "Cash Cows"
check this for a line-up...

All that for £1.15!

Mick said...

That album was great value, wasn’t it? Do you remember the Methods of Dance albums at about the same time? I’m a bit confused because one of my old house mates had an album with two songs by ‘The Residents’ that I used to like and I was sure it was one of the those samplers. It seems my memory is playing tricks.

By the way, I was on the road on Tuesday and Jeremy Vine played International Bright Young Thing. Haven't heard it for ages and really enjoyed it.

Hey! You two! Get a room!!
