Seconds of Pleasure

 

 

To close out the 2015 I’ve pulled out super group Rockpiles’ one and only studio album release, Seconds of Pleasure. Led by co-leaders Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds, it is a rock em sock em platter filled with tasty 2 and 3 minute party hors d’oeuvres guaranteed to delight your pallet and keep you hoppin’ as you ring-in the new year!

There are 12 tracks here, six each by Lowe and Edmunds, which showcase the group’s charm and reputation as a feel-good, high energy rock’n roll act in the late 70s and early 80s. This would be their only studio release as a result of tension in the vastly differing personalities of Lowe, nicknamed “Basher” for his passionate, humor and fast paced energy, and Edmunds, who was more serious and dedicated to detail. As a result Seconds of Pleasure is both focused and loose. Polished yet slightly wrinkled. It is a masterful flash-in-the-pan, which highlights the duo’s relationship and the band’s brief but electrifying run.

Enjoy some final harmonic seconds of pleasure here in twenty fifteen, and Happy New Year from Soundtrax!
