"The New Jersey towns of Haledon and Hoboken may not have the same mythical status as Beatles Liverpool or Velvets New York City, but in the early-1980s, a group of high school friends came together there to form a shifting network of bands that would be referred to as "the stuff of legend and cults." The Trypes emerged from this scene, playing hauntingly beautiful, baroquely arranged psychedelic rock music. Acute Record's newest release, Music for Neighbors, gathers their contributions to the "Hoboken Sound." The Trypes overlapped with another vital Hoboken band, The Feelies, both in members and the development of that sound. The Trypes officially ended when The Feelies re-formed for their second album, taking Stan and Brenda with them. But the remaining Trypes expanded their membership once again and became Speed the Plough, still going strong today, still calling New Jersey home. Includes a large-format 8 page booklet with notes from John, Marc and Glenn, and an introduction by their first fan, Ira Kaplan from Yo La Tengo. Seven additional rehearsal recordings are included with the digital download code in the record." (label info)
