One Kiss Leads To Another (Vinyl - 1LP)

Hackamore Brick
One Kiss Leads To Another (Vinyl - 1LP)

What makes a record a true cult classic? First, it
must be released to a modicum of critical acclaim
but zero commercial success. Second, in
almost all cases the artists behind the release
have to disappear immediately into obscurity.
And third, over the course of decades, a dedicated
core of record collectors, critics and
true believers must spread the word about
the album in question. Well, by those standards,
New York band Hackamore Brick’s 1970 LP One
Kiss Leads to Another is the cult classic to end all cult classics (the
only recent contenders might be Rodriguez’s albums Cold Fact and
Coming from Reality). Released on the bubblegum-centric Kama Sutra
label to positive reactions from critics ranging from Richard Meltzer to
Lenny Kaye, One Kiss sounded very different from anything else on the
label or, for that matter, anything else on the 1970 music scene; often
cited as the first post-Velvet Underground album, it does indeed provoke
comparison’s to VU’s third, self-titled record and Loaded as well
as other descendants like the Modern Lovers and Television. But the
country-ish harmonies of vocalists Tommy Moonlight and Chick Newman
lend the record a sound not unlike any number of current alternative
“beard rock” bands plying their wares, and the discursive lyrics
recall the Kinks. In short, One Kiss Leads to Another passes the fourth
and hardest test of cult classic-dom, which is to remain relevant into
the present, even though Moonlight and Newman didn’t record another
note together as Hackamore Brick until 2009. Real Gone Music is proud
to present this remarkable record on both vinyl and CD, with a bonus
track, the single side “Searchin’,” appearing on both formats, and two
additional bonus tracks, the mono single versions of “Radio” and “I
Watched You Rhumba,” on the CD. Liner notes by Tony Rettman featuring
quotes from Tommy Moonlight and pictures from the Hackamore
Brick archive round out both the vinyl and CD releases. Remastered by
Vic Anesini at Battery Studios in NYC—highly anticipated and worth the wait!
