Howard Devoto - Jerky Versions of the Dream - 1983


Howard Devoto owns a poetic wit that underscores not only his own disappointments with the world around him, but also mirrored the fans’ own acerbic realizations of their surroundings. With an unmatched and encompassing talent to frame all of those observations with music way ahead of their (Magazine) time, Devoto gave life to a band that had never received their rightful due. After their untimely demise, Devoto continued to voice his discontent in a solo work away from the comfortable borders of Magazine. Released in 1983, Jerky Versions of the Dream was heartily welcomed by Magazine’s orphaned fans.Jerky Versions of the Dream came about because, although Devoto had lost faith in a continuing audience, he had yet to exhaust his songwriting. Fueled by several sessions with various musicians that included Barry Adamson (Magazine, Nick Cave), Jerky Versions of the Dream was completed and released to cultish delight that avidly followed Devoto’s tenure with Magazine. The music was decidedly influenced by the times (the ‘80s.) Although somewhat removed from the recognizable Magazine aesthetics, Devoto still employed a more intelligent flow of music. -musictap.net
