digytal soul
The SST version of Danny and the Doorknobs is a fine piece of music that actually sounds completely foreign if you try to consider it in a 1983 context, the year it was recorded. The band was a trio at that point, featuring mainstays Vitus Matare and Kjehl Johansen. The music they presented didn't exactly fit in with any of the hardcore, punk or even new wave of the period, nor does it sound dated listening to it twenty years later. The band hovers vaguely in the same post-punk territory as Mission of Burma but also finds a way to sneak in keyboards without resorting to dance floor tactics. The resulting album is a fine, expansive work that is entirely too pleasant. Oftentimes jaunty, the fifteen songs are well written and well performed. The opener "Whispering Glades" is a fantastic song, offering an intensely memorable melody and excellent interplay between all the musicians. Vocals throughout the album are shared between Matare and Johansen.Danny and the Doorknobs does share a touch of the sound featured in Johansen's 100 Flowers project. However, the punkier edge of the music is refined and given a much moodier approach that entirely works out. Despite all the silliness surrounding the band name changes and confusion that may result in trying to figure out Trotsky Icepick's discography, Danny and the Doorknobs is a sparkling debut that seemingly has been far too overlooked by the indie and post-punk listening world.Review by John Chedsey
