Peter Murphy - Seesaw Sway

Biography

In his four decades of service in the post-punk culture wars, PETER MURPHY has confounded fans, critics, even himself. As the mainman of the acclaimed outfit Bauhaus, he helped usher in ground breaking opaque moods and atmospheres into the post-punk landscape.

The result was a very stripped down, honest sound.
David Cundiff
The simplicity and passion of the music carried me far into that place -- that place only his voice can take you.
John Jansen
Live performances are what separate the true pros from the amateurs, and Peter Murphy is a true pro.

As a rule, I find live albums to be overly indulgent product... usually of questionable sound quality and rarely offering any insight or improvement on the studio versions of the music. There are exceptions of course (see Nirvana's "Unplugged in New York"), and thankfully this outstanding effort by Mister Murphy is just such a rarity. Containing the entire set as it was played at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles in november, aLive Justforlove is a beautifully realized revisiting of some of the finest moments from what is truly an amazing body of work. From the entrancing "All Night Long" to the achingly beautiful "Indigo Eyes" and "Marlene Dietrich's Favourite Poem" and on through the more full productions of "I'll Fall With Your Knife" and "Gliding Like A Whale" the musicians create a loving framework in which the full depth and stark beauty of these songs is wonderously apparent. Accompanied only by Peter DiStefano on guitar and Hugh Marsh on electric violin, Mister Murphy strips down these lush and poetic songs.... in many cases totally reinventing them, showcasing not only his gift for evocative and gorgeous lyricism but also his rich, expressive voice. In many cases live albums may serve as a sort of greatest hits compilation for an artist, in the case of aLive Justforlove the songs are presented in such strikingly original compositions that it stands alone as an album unto itself. For the uninitiated, Mister Murphy is one of the most intelligent and compelling songwriters and vocalists making music today, and this album offers intriguing possibilities as to the direction of his future work.Read more ›

While I am one of the biggest Peter Murphy fans ...I thoroughly enjoyed this album .... I have to say that I wish he would spice things up again and move away from the adult contemporary path down which he seems to be treading. Granted, the songs are becoming more personal and more of a religious experience for Peter, but I miss the fire of earlier works. However, this album showcases a smoldering side of Peter's work, accented by talented artists DeStefano and Marsh, and once again atests to the man's talent to capture the mood. Anything that includes this man's voice is going to resonate, and I highly recommend the album. Standouts for me include 'Subway', the great guitar work on 'Gliding Like a Whale', and the perfect and pure rendition of 'Indigo Eyes'. Now go buy it.

Ok, this isn't a typical live album. To promote his best-of album, Murphy assembled an all-star band of sorts featuring members of Bauhaus, Porno for Pyros and Jane's Addiction. For this tour, he took a drastically different course employing only 2 other musicians, a violinist and a synth-guitarist, to back him up. The result was a very stripped down, honest sound. This album has my favorite versions of Subway (although the Dust version is a close second) and Marlene Dietrich's Favourite Poem. For the second disk Peter is joined by ex Bauhaus bandmate David J for memorable versions of some Bauhaus songs. Another great album by one of the best vocalists ever.

if you've seen the man live, buy this for a great memento of his awesome performance... if you love peter, and many of you do, get it anyway. he'll love you and you'll love yourself for it too.
the recording is amazingly clean for a live album. natural pauses and commentary from peter, the band, and the crowd lilt between songs.
another couple of reasons that you MUST own this: hugh marsh plays an INCREDIBLE electric violin, which enhances "Indigo Eyes" (a version that rivals the album version by far) and "Marlene Dietrich's Favourite Poem."
If you're not already in love with Peter's voice and art, you will be by the time this album is finsihed. Just don't listen to it while driving... I nearly ran off of the road during a cursory listen on the highway! Listen and fly to the stars...

The tour was gorgeous and this is a gorgeous CD, very minimalistic, beautiful in it's simplicity. PM's voice resonates on this CD with emotion of a sort that just can't be captured in a studio. I generally dislike live albums- they're nothing but less polished, messy versions of studio with screaming fans interfering. These versions are definately something I'd want to keep in addition to the studio versions. This album has a very "real" feel to it; rather than being a bunch of shows chopped up, it's one show recorded essentially start to finish. The crowd cheering didn't even bother me- it actually added ambience and context. Very good audio quality, though I'd skip the second disc if I were you- it's nothing but end of concert filler. If the point hadn't been to put out a CD of the entire show, Metropolis could have done us all a favor and just made this a 1 CD deal.

To convey what music does to you is impossible.Another way to put it; to describe how the wind feels on your cheek in words ...futile. You`ve simply got to go out and find that wind and stand in it..only then can you witness it`s reality.
Well, you can see what I`m getting at can`t you ?
Even if you can`t afford to buy this record, go and bootleg one from a friend or sranger for that, get yourself in that wind and get blown away.
I suspect we ain`t seen nothin yet, and that the next album (finished and due I hear early new 2002 year) will turn metal into gold....
Go take your ablutions and get Murphy into your life.
