Danielle Dax - Comatose Non Reaction: The Thwarted Pop Career album download
Full title on the front cover is on - The Thwarted Pop Career Of Danielle Dax". Track 2-8 is from the Shock Headed Peters album Fear Engine II. All songs recorded at Fortress Dax and The Gin Palace
A crying shame as she was so unique - there was no one else like her and in that I felt she warranted commercial recognition.
Dax was to make her 'pop' musical debut in 1979 just three weeks of joining the group Amii Toytal and the Croixroads - this was a pseudonym for the Lemon Kittens - as keyboardist, flautist and saxophonist. It was their first gig and took place at Reading University's Student Union 'Airport' Bar. Karl Blake from the Lemon Kittens had met her some three weeks earlier after he read an article about her in a local newspaper. Her last two album releases were in 1995 and consisted of a career retrospective double-album entitled Comatose Non-Reaction: The Thwarted Pop Career of Danielle Dax and an EP of new avant-garde and almost completely instrumental material called Timber Tongue (both on her own Biter Of Thorpe label). Dax's career in the music business then went on indefinite hiatus and is often referred to as a 'retirement'.
10 songs on the album are from the Inky Bloaters album, 1 from Pop-Eyes and 2 from Jesus Egg that Wept. 6 songs original to this album. Rock songs, with a dark edge. I prefer this to Blast the Human Flower, which seems to have a little less individuality.
A career retrospective was tellingly titled Comatose Non Reaction: The Thwarted Pop Career of Danielle Dax. She once asked "Why are the nicer people not as successful as the shitty people?" This interview tells about her struggles against prejudice (and, one presumes, high-street hairdressing). Now 50, she seems to have semi-retired from music. But I've listened to tracks such as Cathouse, Fizzing Human Bomb and Big Hollow Man and they're every bit as packed with fizz and fun as I remember them
Comatose Non Reaction. While cranking out highly intelligent, creative songs that had catchy pop sensibilities, she struggled in total obscurity. Weird, because everyone who was familiar with her loved her. The word of mouth press was fantastic but it never got beyond that. Outside of the Goth hour of any decent college radio station (and no, she's not really Goth) I never heard Dax on the radio. I'll never understand that. This is a great collection of her earlier works, 1989's "Blast the Human Flower" album is not represented on this collection. Blast was suppossed to be her crossover mainstream effort, but it was mismanaged. If you like something different, this collection is for you, and if you can find it, get Blast the Human Flower to see a different side of her musical talents. Update: In spite of the fan outcry, Ms. Dax has given up her musical career to become a garden designer.
