Ashley Jude Collie - Blog
“It’s fascinating to watch the often detrimental impact of commercial success on musical artists. Go back to the ‘70s when the record business exploded and many unknown, hard-working artists became mega-million unit sellers. Unfortunately, success seemed to negatively impact the quality of their work from then on. Did a mega artist like Elton John ever write anything as artistically good after Madman Across the Water in 1971? Musicians are human, success decidedly gives the boot to failure and often brings the end of yearning and drive, which are all key to creativity. So, if you want to catch an outstanding band that’s still on the upswing, one whose individuals have suffered artistic heartbreak and some near misses, a band that is still full of defiance, passion, longing and undiluted creativity…then you could do worse than to download or drop a needle on Menage’s debut self-titled record — think Arcade Fire’s anthemic songwriting meets The Smashing Pumpkins”
