Album Notes
T H E   R O S E M A R Y    P U R E

We want to thank you for your support of the Rosemary Pure. After a decade of creating original rock, playing numerous gigs, and completing three full-length albums, the band has decided to part ways. It's an amicable break, stemming from the classic need to pursue different musical directions. What, no plane crash, love affair, or drug rehab? Sorry, we were the world's promptest band, not the most juicy 'behind the music' one. We hope our friends/fans will keep fond memories of the past decade of tRP, from hot shows upstairs at the Melody to CBGB bus trips to Philadelphia AIDS walks to Giants stadium (okay, in the parking lot. but it was the World Cup!). Again, thanks for your part in the band's history.

one last thing ...TIN CDs (released 2003) are still available online and at local retail stores. peace out, yo. - tRP

Jo: vocals, lead electric guitar

Tin: Corrosion Free and Refined
Not unlike Tin found in the earth and being part of the Carbon family, this release is tRP's strongest and refined work to date. Not sure where the inspiration for the CD's title came from, but it is very fitting of tRP's 10 year evolution. The metal Tin has been known and worked on since the Bronze Age of Man, whereas tRP's "Tin" is the result of honing their craft for a decade and running.

I have a problem keeping the review short, but the 2 tracks I enjoy immensely right now are "From Up Here" and "Long Dark Feeling". The constant in tRP's evolution is that it has always been difficult to nail down specific influences and I enjoy music reviewers who say these "XYZ" artists are their influences. There is such a myriad of influences involved in tRP that there's no way to nail it
down and that's what's always been good about this band. The sphere of influences does shift, however, and did shift over the years, at least to my ears. Instead, I think that everyone can come away with their own ideas on influences based one's own musical tastes.

My ears hear "From Up Here" as executed wonderfully in a pulsing rhythm driving dream pop psychedelic manner reminiscent to Blur's "She's So High", but all similarities to Blur end there and "FUH" is it's own identity. Other person’s ears may hear something different.

"Long Dark Feeling"?? "Wow!" is my initial reaction to this methodical 5 minute sonic crescendo. This track is on the money. Not much, if any, minor tweaking, but this is where I wish I had the luxury, equipment, and a Phil Spector
"Wall of Sound" brilliance. For the first 1:14min you have a wonderfully simple beat a la Massive Attack or Portishead and it just keeps building and evolving layer by layer and the 3 minute mark you have something completely different than what started as a workings of a "trip-hop" track. By 4:25min it all comes to a sonic head. Beautiful noise.

In closing, tRP's: TIN is just a sneak preview of more better things to come from the band. It displays the various fine wares of these 4 artisans & craftsman who have toiled for their craft over a decade. Well worth the wait.

Pure's best yet: a varied and powerful mix of tunes
I got the new CD a couple days ago, and I think this is the most impressive tRP release to date. The packaging and production are both great. This time around, the guitar sound was more pleasing to my ears, as the sound varied from song to song, and in general more powerful, e.g. Jo breaking out the superfuzz pedal for My Creation.
Putting those electronic drums into the mix on a few tunes added an intriguing layer. My favorite song is Long Dark Feeling, mostly for the bluesy PJ Harvey-esque vocal stylings. Entrance is my second favorite song. I like the duet. His vocals are deep, sorta like Calvin Johnson of K Records fame, Beat Happening and the Halo Benders...
