The Delgados: The Glory Of Loathe
Friday, April 25, 2003; Page C07

The Delgados' latest single may be called "All You Need Is Hate," but the Scottish band doesn't spew venom la Korn or Marilyn Manson, instead preferring, as the song's Beatles-centric title suggests, to meditate melodically on loathing. At the Black Cat on Wednesday night, the group played an exhilarating 90-minute show that set dark introspection against a musical backdrop of post-punk chamber music.

The Delgados are a quartet with classic Fab Four instrumentation, but their current U.S. tour lineup includes five additional players -- on viola, violin, cello, flute and electric piano -- that helped them render songs like "The Light Before We Land" and "Coming In From the Cold" with a full sonic palette.

The band owns and operates the Chemikal Underground record label and has released recordings by bands like Arab Strap and Aerogramme (the latter played an engaging opening set Wednesday) whose musical approaches were noticeable in the Delgados' work. Also evident, however, was the sound of countrymen Belle and Sebastian and the Pastels.

The Delgados' sound is centered on the singing of guitarists Emma Pollock and Alun Woodward, who traded leads and harmonized on songs like "Child Killers" and "Never Look at the Sun," which built to peaks of symphonic intensity behind massed strings and electric guitars.

The group covered nearly every song on their beautifully despondent recent album (titled "Hate," naturally), then offered up a surprisingly bubbly encore: a chugging version of ELO's "Mr. Blue Sky" that revealed some of the pop roots in the Delgados' shadowy musical garden.

I became accustomed to a kind of social servitude
and no one, I mean no one, could accept what I had become
Selfish, bitter, weak
Enough to make you sick
And lately, I've been feeling there are bits of life I'm stealing
Get me home

At times it seems I will not help
but it's just that I must save myself
from fear that blankets me like mist
on an optimist who insists
it's the simple things that crush
and I'm crying far too much
so much so that I'm thinking my control on life is shrinking

There's a light on in my head and I'm thinking what I said
All the freedom in my brain, I'm alright now
I'm just thinking what to say
Sorry doesn't seem to wash
when there's truths around that I have quashed
and no one, I mean no one, can depress me more than I can
So does that make me weak or should that make me sick?
But lately I've been feeling that I'm gonna give up breathing

There's a light on in my head and I'm thinking what I said
All the fever in my brain, I'm alright now
I can even take the pain
There's a light on in my head and I'm thinking what I said
All the fever in my brain, I'm alright now
I can even take the pain

It can be like the Real World. I'm sure Sam would agree to it, so we'd need two more people, right?

Jenn's plan was to present a proposal that she'd try to sleep with a rock star in every country.

LMAO. I just wanted to go for the music and travel.

We should write a proposal and give to some exec in AOL music and have them do it for us. I think we could find people - now has idea this should happen during the next u2 tour]

I think we should be sick on May 21

Yeah! Write a proposal!

Whatever it takes, you know?

Yeah, I like the book plan. Megan, our book plan #1 we talked about last year would need to commence in the next few months to catch the bus before it takes off on tour!!

crap i just realized you said idlewild in NYC - if you get off we are going to this show.

I am so going to talk to AOL music people - this is the best idea i have had today. They could use in AOL US, AOL UK, AOL Austrailia, AOL Japan, AOL South America.

And we'd have Sam for the international flavour. I might even be able to get someone from New Zealand to sign on.

I'll try to find more info on the Idlewild show. It's at a TINY venue, apparently.

Never get anywhere without trying, right? I am SO drafting a letter to mtv...why not. What about magazines too - that would be preferable, actually. No video cameras, just frequent reports from the road. nme, q...i guess rolling stone, as long as we'd get to choose the shows. No crap concerts for me.
Ok, now that this IS happening in my mind, I'm never going to be able to study now...
