Long lost treasure 2 décembre 2009
Par Kerry B. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
What a treat it was to find this long-lost treasure finally released on CD! Released way back in 1980, this album documents a rocker's approach to New Wave music at a time when music and radio were undergoing big changes and MTV was just over the horizon.

The album yielded a minor hit with the classic "She Talks In Stero". Other strong tracks include "Living Disaster", "Ever Since The World Began", "Model", and my vote for best track on the album, "The Party".

As an added bonus, we get nine live tracks, five of which are previously unreleased. In the early 1980s, I found a "promo only" copy of this album with a slightly different cover and a second album of live tracks. For whatever reason I didn't buy it and I've been looking off and on for 25 years for a promo copy of that album. This release brings together those tracks and gives those of us who weren't fortunate to see them live, a taste of what Gary Myrick and The Figures were like in a live setting.

If you like New Wave and/or 80s music I think you'll enjoy this long-lost treasure.

Unsung 80's Guitar Hero 20 janvier 2010
Par Robert B. Harmor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
30 years ago I walked into a club on the Sunset Strip and was lucky enough to uncover a gem of a band called Gary Myrick and The Figures. After being blown away by their live performance, I knew I had to buy their album. The 80's was not known as a decade for producing guitar heroes, but listen to tracks like, "Meaningless", "Model", and "Ever Since The World Began", and you'll see why he's worthy of greater appreciation. While Gary and his band have their own sound, this should appeal to folks who like The Knack and The Cars.

Go Figure: A lost gem of an 80's debut 9 février 2010
Par Tim Brough - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Gary Myrick hit the highway from his Texas home for the golden promise of Los Angeles. By 1980, his strong guitar playing and songwriting led to a recording contract and this debut album. His three piece backing band, The Figures, were to Gary what The Attractions were to Elvis Costello, a bass/drums/keyboards power trio to support Gary's energetic, new wavey delivery. There was also more than a touch of The Clash and Sex Pistols (listen to his occasional vocal slip into Johnny Rotten turf) involved. The nine originals plus one engaging Kinks cover were a rousing opening salvo.

Gary Myrick and The Figures was a muscular outing, darker and more stark than many of the more famous New Wavers to explode out of Los Angeles in the early 80's (think The Motels or The Knack). Instead of the power pop of these bands, Myrick was looking for grittier turf even as he knocked out several catchy songs. "She Talks In Stereo" was the big attention getter, and probably has become his signature song. But there's also "She's So Teenage" and "The Party," There was even a shot at writing a Mellencamp/Petty type of 'hit' with "Deep In The Heartland"; oddly enough it is the only dud in the bunch.

I was surprised to finally find this on CD as Myrick's albums have been on my wishlist for a couple decades now. Even bigger a surprise is a live set as bonus tracks. Covering 9 of the debut's songs (minus "Heartland"), from a gig at LA's Whiskey A-Go-Go. While I think his second album, Living in a Movie, is a better album by a razor thin margin, this first album is still a winner for collectors of 80's obscurities.

Gary Myrick & The Figures Reunite for Special LA Show 16 avril 2010
Par David Brooks Dennard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Classic LA Punk-Pop Band Reunites for Roxy Show on 6/22/2010

The seminal LA new wave punk/pop band Gary Myrick and The Figures, whose first single "She Talks In Stereo" was featured in the cult film "Valley Girl", will reunite for a special live show at the Roxy Theater on Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, CA for one night only on Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010.

Myrick and company are experiencing something of a revival due to the recent re-release of their first three Epic/CBS Records albums on CD by Sony subsidiary Wounded Bird Records. All three CDs feature additional tracks from live shows and demos that were never previously released and which more than double the length of each of the previous vinyl LPs.

Three of the original band members of GMF will be performing: Gary Myrick (lead vocals, lead guitar), David Dennard (bass, vocals) and Jack White (drums, vocals) plus new member Gina Myrick (keyboards, backing vocals).

Don't miss this chance to catch one of LA's best live acts from the '80s in person on their original home turf, The Roxy! Doors open at 7:00 PM. Call the Roxy box office for more information. Also appearing: Holly & The Italians, The Bebe Buell Band.
