Pleasure Club , 5/10
My Love Sex And Spirit , 5/10

Among Georgia-based imitators of REM, James Hall's Mary My Hope distinguished themselves because of an almost gothic spleen. The most interesting songs on Museum (Silvertone, 1989), such as Wildman Childman and Communion, even foretold Smashing Pumpkins. Their art at the border of grunge, folk and pop ended abruptly after the single Suicide Kings (Silvertone, 1990).

James Hall, a Texas native who had been raised in Nashville, started a solo career with My Love Sex And Spirit (Daemon, 1993). The feeling is as dark as on Gun Club records, but the music is glam-rock with a jazz influence (So Precious, Spade). Hall became an assured and consummated entertainer with Pleasure Club (Geffen, 1996), although his theatrics got a little out of hand. Pleasure Club, Heatwave Radio and Illingness are catchy and melodramatic, without being predictable.
