Album Review

By and large, A Dead Horse tosses out the supersession approach of previous Golden Palominos efforts to concentrate on a steady core roster of Anton Fier, Bill Laswell, and Nicky Skopelitis; vocal chores are evenly divided among the Numbers Band's Robert Kidney and Amanda Kramer, formerly of Information Society. A subdued, moody effort, A Dead Horse lacks the energy and spark of the group's earlier work; only Kramer's lovely "Darklands" makes much of a lasting impression.

Customer Reviews

misunderstood band

This is probably the only remaining alternative band still in existence. It always amazes me how people just don't get the Golden Palominos. Every one of their albums reflects the personnel available to them at the time. There are songs here that are as good as any the band has ever released. I have been and will remain a Golden Palominos fan because their music, album by album, reflects constant change and constant risk-taking.

Not Bad.....Where's The Rest of The Catalog?

This isnt the best record the GP's have done. "Darklands" and "Shattered Image" are good tracks. Anton & Co. are usually funky harmony masters. This is not up their usual high standards. iTunes should make the rest of the GP catalog available. The "Pure" album is a wall to wall masterpiece, there's not a bad track on it.

You had to be there to get it

The Golden Palominos were not a group per se, but rather the revolving-door project of drummer, programmer, and bandleader Anton Fier. Born June 20, 1956, in Cleveland, Ohio, Fier first made his mark as the drummer on the Feelies' seminal 1980 debut Crazy Rhythms. After leaving the group, he joined the punk-jazz unit the Lounge Lizards before returning home to Cleveland, where he was recruited by the legendary new wave band Pere Ubu for the album Song of the Bailing Man. After exiting Ubu, Fier again...
