Thalia Zedek - Been Here and Gone (2001) Retail CD
Been Here and Gone is a new work from Thalia Zedek, a veteran of the New York underground scene that spawned the likes of Sonic Youth. And Zedek, frontwoman for the highly respected Sub Pop rock-deconstructionists Come, has certainly paid her rock & roll dues. So is Been Here and Gone, her debut solo album, a desperate plea for recognition? After 20 years of performing behind a cacophony of feedback, Been Here and Gone finds Zedek stepping out of the shadow of her band and unleashing her voice--a grizzled, but seductive tar-soaked growl in the vein of Patti Smith --in a stark, unadorned musicalmore… environment. Her backing band might include old Come companion Chris Brokaw on guitar, but the likes of "Back to School" and the gorgeous piano lament of "1926" are bare-boned and unadorned where Come were rough-edged and intense. The most memorable arrangement is an elegant, Prussian-tinged cover of Leonard Cohen's "Dance Me to the End of Love", and that's a pretty fair signpost to this record's tone of doomed romanticism. But will "Been Here and Gone" find Zedek the respect she so evidently deserves? Doubtful. But it should win her a whole new audience of devoted fans that take their tales of pathos without the tortured scream of an electric guitar. --Louis Pattison
