2 stars Comfortably numb

By 1970, Nirvana's original sextet had been whittled down to one. Alex Spyropoulos the only other remaining member moved on, thus Nirvana became the vehicle for Patrick Campbell-Lyons solo work. The duo would link up again in the 1990s, when interest in the band was revived.

"Local anaesthetic" was the first release by Nirvana in this form, Campbell-Lyons describing it as the "birth of the real Nirvana". The album appeared on the Vertigo label, complete with swirl label and inner sleeve. There is certainly a sea change in the style of music here. Gone are the pysch pop sounds of songs such as "Tiny goddess" and "Pentecost hotel", to be replaced by a far more progressive style. The album consists of just two tracks, one on each side.

The first piece, "Modus operandi (method of work)" offers a co-credit to Patrick Joseph Kelly, but his precise involvement is not detailed. Other musicians, including members of Jade Warrior and Mel Collins are used on a session basis. The opening theme immediately tells us that this is not the Nirvana of old, with a disintegrating jazz theme and paranoid screaming giving way to a more orthodox blues rhythm. The vocals, which have a similarity to those of John Lees of BJH, are offbeat and avant- garde with an at times highly improvised feel. The track settles down to a sort of cross between COLOSSEUM and SOFT MACHINE with frequent time and style changes. Unfortunately, it all comes across as a bit of an unfocussed mishmash.

"Home", which occupies the second side, is a suite in five sections. The Jade Warrior contribution is obvious in the percussive start to "Salutation". The piece soon moves into he more familiar vocal style of Nirvana from the previous albums, with soft harmonies. Those familiar with the work of ARGENT post Russ Ballard will notice similarities in the sound here. Some pleasing mellotron drifts in towards the end of the opening section. As a whole, "Home" is far more melodic than "Modus operandi", with softer, more harmonic vocals and a tighter structure. It is a pleasant piece with some fairly commercial repetitive hooks which contrast noticably with side one.

"Local anaesthetic" is unquestionably Nirvana's most progressive release, and it does have some fine moments. In all though, for me it is largely uninspired and misses the mark.

The eye-catching sleeve has an intriguing image of an abandoned house containing a frozen mother and daughter.

3 stars For me this is maybe the most interesting album of the four first major releases done by this cute little band. But I admit I still don't see it as a really essential record. If compared to the carefully constructed pop songs from their late 60's releases, "Local Anaesthetic" has much more improvisational playing in it, and there are more jazz elements included in the sound. Keyboards are mainly represented by a piano, which makes the music's tone quite pleasant to my ears. Tony Duhig's presence can be heard in some passages which therefore sound very much like Jade Warrior, these elements being some African sounding drumming and wind sections. The first song (or collection of songs) is musically more compact, as the music flows continuously onward. The second side is thematically more united, but the tracks have clear pauses between them so I'm not sure it's right to claim it being a one compact song. Also I don't understand the meaning of few seconds of piano playing, where the whole album ends. There was also a one single being cut from this side, which's theme is focused in serious homesickness. Musically the album isn't still very tight or unique, though it's a fun record to listen through from time to time. I would recommend it for the serious fans of Jade Warrior and for those who are returning home from a long journey.

1 stars Local Anaesthetic are one of the rare albums of the 'original' Nirvana that one can accidentally find. I bought mine in a 'reject bin', probably bought by mistake by someone who thought it was the grunge band. So it's definitely not to be confused !! Anyway, I guess I was expecting mind-blowing psychedelic music and I was very disappointed. I had the impression of listening to bad album by Donovan. The album is composed of two side-long tracks. The first one has a weird introduction that should have been cut out. Not much to say about the music with uninteresting guitar solos and very repetitive music patterns. It just didn't catch my attention and will probably end up in yet another reject bin.

2 stars One has to keep in mind while listening to this album that there were a lot of mind-altering substances floating around in the late sixties and, while some of them may have “opened” people’s minds, others had a tendency to dull one’s ability to distinguish between personal perception and reality. That’s a nice way of saying that a lot of late sixties and early seventies music sounded much better to the people playing it than to those who were listening. The music on this album falls into that category.

I really hate to write negative things about this record because it is housed in what I consider to be one of the truly great and timeless album covers of all time. The very creepy and frozen mother being tended to by her sardonic daughter against a backdrop of a barren and whited-out house with a dilapidated fireplace and Patrick Campbell-Lyons looking away from a side window was a scene just full of symbolism and fodder for ill-informed discussion among impressionable young teens who may have been dabbling in some substance-driven mind-alteration themselves. Too bad for me I never discovered these guys back in the day, but I can imagine some of the weird conversations among those who did.

This is really a solo album since Campbell-Lyons’ writing partner Alex Spyropoulos had moved on by this point and the duo had long since abandoned the pretense of the group being anything more than just the two of them although occasional guests and session musicians would continue to appear on their records and in rare live appearances even after the quartet recruited after their first album’s success had all gone their separate ways.

But despite great packaging the music doesn’t live up to expectations. It’s pretty evident Spyropoulos’ arrangements made more of a contribution to the Nirvana sound than Campbell-Lyons may have cared to admit. While the first handful of the albums by the two are really closer to well-constructed pop than progressive rock, this one is almost the opposite – pretty progressive arrangements but so loosely constructed as to appear almost improvised at times (and probably it was). The most immediate comparison I could make would be to some of the stuff Marc Bolan did pre-T. Rex (‘A Beard of Stars’ comes to mind). One major difference though is that the guitar work on this record is decidedly heavier with blues riffs and less about either psych fuzz or folk-inspired chords like Bolan tended toward before he became a glam king (or queen, whatever).

The record consists of two songs, one (“Modus Operandi”) being this lengthy sort of mess that starts off as a promising avant-jazz tune before quickly descending into hollow vocal cries and eventually an almost boogie motif with frequent yet random and disjointed tempo, instrument and mood changes and vocals that may tell a story but honestly I can’t be bothered to try and figure this one out.

“Home” is in suite form with unoriginally-labeled sections. Campbell-Lyons is quite a bit more disciplined here, with each section being fairly contiguous, and all of them fit together nicely. There are some issues, namely the opening salutation dragging on far too long and the ‘destruction’ section threatening to sound like a Tommy James pop-rock tune but managing to just barely avoid doing so. Otherwise the back side of the record is pretty good stuff, though I can’t say it holds up all that well after nearly forty years. Then again, there’s a lot of other stuff from that period that hasn’t aged even this well.

I’d really like to give this record three stars, but honestly unless you are either a strong fan of the band or of acid folk in general I doubt you’ll find much to like here, so two it is but probably the best two star album I've ever reviewed. If you are then by all means I’d recommend looking this one up; otherwise stick to the better-known classics of the genre.

peace
