Short Biography :. One day they just appeared on the Korean rock scene. They were born out of a rich family in Seoul. Thanks to that they could buy the necessary rock instruments. Thanks to that the other brothers could learn the guitar. Their parents said that they were going to buy a piano as an entrance gift, if Chang Hun entered the university. And they asked to their parents to give me a set of rock band musical instruments instead. Therefore they could get a drum set, two amps, and two guitars.
After that they often played their own rock songs weekly. I believe they just enjoyed the brother gem for about four years!! In there was held the first University student song contest. They were Australian Medley - The Ten Tenors - One Is Not Enough in the contest and joined in the preliminary 어디로 갈까 - 산울림* - 제4집 of it and their song came to the first class in the preliminary hearing but fell off at the main contest because Kim Chang Wan graduated at the time.
Although they fell off at the main contest, they discovered their self confidence. Finally they finished their first recording in just one day. They just would like to have their own album.
Songs were recorded in just one take without dubbing. These recordings were to be divided afterwards into several songs by the producer. At first they recorded their demo tape Exoplanet - Sleep Ritual EP a JVC portable recorder and went to the SRB record company, because the SRB record company was the nearest place to their home.
They had already over one hundred songs written by themselves before they debuted. So they only depended on psychedelic ad lib or fuzz guitar.
But ironically this made their first album sound unique. After their first album release, many Korean young people were surprised by their music!! Their music was very unique and fresh and it distinguished them from previous Korean pop music. Anyway their first album became a million seller in the Korean s pop scene over the time. The record sold immediately over five hundreds of 어디로 갈까 - 산울림* - 제4집 copies!
But band members were in confusion. After five months, their second album was released. They tried to define their musical genre on this album. They had added organ sounds by their sister Kim Nan Suk. Especially the most important thing is that not only Korean music fans but also Korean music mania outside Korea had been wildly excited by their music. Their music became more psychedelic and interomptu. We hear simple chords but with best effect and most effective arrangements.
The second album also has folk ballads, like track 4, 5. For Korea this more simple straight forwardness of the group with great effect was new. Without knowing San Ul Lim here created a new approach to rock for Korea. Otherwise Magma would never had sounded like they were The voice on firtst track of vol. Of course it has the undeliberate sophistication too in the rock feel. The long track of vol. Weirdo Rec. With confidence gained from endless practicing and competing in a university student song contest, they approached record label SRB because it was near their house!
Upon its release inthe LP sold over a half-million copies and paved the way for many further volumes. The songs are full of fuzz guitar, tinny keyboards and simple production, reminding one of the American garage and pop-psychedelic groups from the sixties, but with an Asian flavor. For this new reissue World Psychedelia have included two pages of English liner notes, explaining the significance of the final track, a cover of the traditional Korean folk song 'Arirang'.
First CD release 어디로 갈까 - 산울림* - 제4집 vol. Merlin Nose Rec. And it does not often happen that the music has not been recorded and issued before when it clearly sounds like the best psychedelic power pop and garage stuff you could get in the UK and USA ten years earlier. They released this debut album back in while the compositions actually have been conceived from to Their music presents the step from early beat to the heavier and darker garage rock which finally transcended into psychedelic rock and fans of this proto garage beat with psychedelic tinges that came out from to should go wild about this album.
A lovely flashback to the golden age of music. Dusty Groove on vol. If San Ul Lim 1 was the most sunshine rock oriented set, and San Ul Lim 3 flirted with hard rock, album 2 splits the difference with a little bit of groovy prog elements and lots of spacey organ! The tunes 어디로 갈까 - 산울림* - 제4집 some more languorous, moody bits that are rich with atmosphere and some really sweet work on bass, fuzzy guitars and the swirling organ -- but the group's excellent ear for melody and a catchy groove are still very much intact!
The booklet includes a an essay translated into English, but no English tracklist. San Ul Lim were ostensibly a trio-with the eldest brother on guitar, the youngest on drums and the middle playing bass; they also have their sister Kim Nan Suk playing keyboards-a small oversight maybe for her never to get any credit on the recordsas she has as big a role as her eldest brother when it comes to carrying the solos for the group, using a broad array of synths a harpsichord farfisa patch being popular and electric pianos.
The bass playing of the middle brother is also spirited. Not content to merely playing his role in the rhythm section and keeping harmony going, he has a tendency to keep busy with fast moving scale fragments and melodies. A tougher sounding album than their rightly-lauded debut-the music became more psychedelic and impromptu; and as the notes tell us, "Definitely the second album San Ul Lim made them rock stars in Korea.
These are regarded as the bands best recordings "because they made most songs on these albums between and before their debut.
Therefore the songs had their early originality and creativity. This is top notch psychedelia from a Korean trio who gets the job done: fuzzed out guitar, deep bass, tight drums, organ that never goes wrong, and singing that is absolutely off the chain. The whole thing has a sparse groove with the bass and drums chugging along underneath some pretty mental guitar, and the opening track is seriously worth the price of admission alone. While South America psychedelia has gotten its due, this album reminds you that there is still so much out there to be discovered.
Highly recommended. Vol 3, also listed as "My Heart". The opening track starts in wonderfully eye-opening 어디로 갈까 - 산울림* - 제4집 with the buzzing guitar sound and raspy vocals -- but the follow up tracks have a softer vocal tone and more of a spacey effect -- kind of evocative of "Sister Ray" in the relentless buzz sounds, but with a more lilting overall vibe!
Includes If It Takes All Night - Roxy Music - Interpretation • 1975 Tour in English, but the 어디로 갈까 - 산울림* - 제4집 are Korean -- 5 tracks in all, including a mammoth 18 minute closer!
Apologies for the lack of track titles -- the booklet includes an English language essay, but not a translation for the song titles! This time they didnt use organ and used only Qué Padre Es La Vida - Rocio Jurado - Canta A Mexico, drums and bass as a power rock trio, and also made songs in a Hard rock style songs which were not ballad style or popular.
But, of course, the result is 어디로 갈까 - 산울림* - 제4집 a Hard Rock record at all. True, the record starts out with throat-shredding vocals and a guitar sound that is suddenly fuzzed-out and ominous sounding; but by track two, we already have dreamy melodies; but all's well that end's well, thanks to the almost minute track that was the entire 어디로 갈까 - 산울림* - 제4집 two of the original LPdroning 어디로 갈까 - 산울림* - 제4집 guitar psychedelia at its maniacal best, with a "White Light, White Heat" groove, and imaginative fuzz guitar soloing.
Korean rock specialists called the first three San Ul Lim albums the demo tape triple collection. These are regarded as the bands best recordings because they made most songs on these albums between and before their debut. Although you'd swear they were made circa '67 or '68, they really didn't start recording until the mids. So they tried to experiment more music after success of these albums.
They considered the musical originality of their 1st and 2nd albums, but were conscious of USA and UK Hard rock style at the time of the 3rd album. They wanted to make this album as Western top class Hard rock music. So their 3rd album is the most rocky album of their albums. But they failed both commercially and musically, because they did not have the ability to play the complete songs in performance. However we had to value this as positive. They produced the best rock and now were the best rock band.
The reason is 어디로 갈까 - 산울림* - 제4집 their music had creativity and rash braveness, scary frankness even though they did not have sufficient ability as musical performers they had just creativity and rash braveness.
Therefore many Korean rock specialists called this album half a success or an exciting failure. But their creativity was dried up and the music became more popular, so they focused on commerciality. Limited set. A box set containing long awaited official reissues of the first 3 albums as well as an ultra-rare 7inch single from Sanullim, unparalleled genuines 어디로 갈까 - 산울림* - 제4집 Korean psychedelic rock.
Why Are You Leaving Me? Depending on the speaker, Sanullim were hailed as everything from heavy metal originators, punk founders, and even alternative rock pioneers. The first three albums were released within a 2-year period. The debut album kicked off with a resounding bang which became an instant nationwide hit. Suddenly inWhat, Already? The phrase What, Already? Comedians inserted the phrase in their skits, and kids would imitate them.
A legend had just been born. As with What, Already? Unlike What, Already? The second album has no weak spots. The third album reveals some sonic departures from the previous two albums.
