Chris D / Divine Horsemen - Time Stands Still (1984)



I picked this little beauty up at our local boot sale a couple of weeks ago and it's a very enjoyable listen.  Chris D was the singer in LA punk band, The Flesh Eaters, but in 1984 he released this album which signalled a change of direction to a more country influenced style.  The lyrics are bleak and his singing style idiosyncratic, but the music has a kind of darkness at noon, sunburned Tex-Mex feel.  The Divine Horseman on this record are a veritable who's who of the LA alternative scene and feature members of X, The Blasters and The Gun Club, all artists at the height of their hedonistic powers.



Tracklist:

02         Lilly White Hands
