Unfairly in the shadow of it's predecessor, 1975's follow-up "Tomorrow Belongs To Me" is still an amazing album full of great songs. Opener "Action Strasse" really goes for it with it's very menacing guitar riff which leads into the slick groove of "Snake Bite". It seems that this album seemed to take on a more literary approach, albeit one mixed with Prog-Rock and two big examples of this are "The Tale of the Giant Stoneater" and band favorite "Give My Compliments to the Chef".Read more ›
Every song is great. Harvey, though not very famous in US
had a big underground following here. "Snake Bite" guitar by Zal Cleminson is venomously catchy. In surround sound on disc cranked up "Give my Compliments to the Chef" gives new meaning to a satisfactory meal. Everytime I play any songs from these albums people notice and ask who it is. I highly recommend you
"Send the roadies out for more..."
Harvey is at his storytelling best as his alter-ego - the comic book hero Vambo - takes center stage in the 1974 album through Hot City Symphony Part I: Vambo, with Hot City Symphony Part II: Man in the Jar delivering a shocking conclusion to the proceedings. Sergeant Fury, Tomahawk Kid and Anthem are sonic gems, but Money Honey/The Impossible Dream is the real gem; Harvey again shows how he pulls and tugs from various genres of pop music to deliver his performance art.
One of two releases in 1975 (w/ Live), Tomorrow Belongs to Me is as close as the band got to deliver their critically-acclaimed live show in the confines of a studio. Guitarist Zal Cleminson pumps out a wicked groove on Snake Bite, while Harvey has an epic story to tell on The Tale of the Giant Stone Eater. Give My Compliments to the Chef, Action Strasse and Shark's Teeth finds Harvey propelling things to extraordinary heights.
"Give my regards to Sergeant Fury," indeed.
