Khayembii Communique/Vida Blue

Split

Blood Of The Young 7

Released on June 18, 2002

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!


The long awaited split release between two of the most powerful emo bands on the scene. THE KAHYEMBII COMMUNIQUE deliver the bulk of their last recordings (one track was left out in favor of a comp opportunity), while VIDA BLUE offer their final recordings under that name, as they've been forced to change it.

This is actually Dave Norman from Guelph/Whitby Ontario, Canada.

If you like Kodan Armada, then you will kinda like this 10". Amazing packaging, KC rules anus, and Vida Blue is just ok. I think Vida Blue went on to become Ten Grand but I'm not sure. If that's the case then the singer or something died...shitty. But yeah this 10" is worth it for the KC songs alone. I've been trying to get my hands on their first release, but that shit sells for like 30 bucks on ebay. Amazing screamo meets Alexisonfire, good stuff!

This is one of the best 10"s I own, and I'm truly sorry I didn't purchase it sooner. Pure emotive hardcore at its best.

The Khayembii Communiqué are perhaps one of the greatest emo bands of all time, and the songs on here definitely showcase their style which is some really emotive screaming (think On the Might of Princes), and very throaty vocals that often ring on. Lyrics are included too, and they deal with many themes, loss and self-realization to name a few. The songs they thrown down aren’t nearly as good as their out of print 7’, which I also own, but don’t expect to find it on here, its long out of print and I’ve seen it go for 80 dollars on Ebay before. This is worth purchasing for Khayembii’s side alone.

The Vida Blue have a tragic tale on their hands, after changing their name to Ten Grand (this is their final release known as the Vida Blue) Matt Davis met a tragic death. Needless to say he is missed. Murder by Death did a tribute to him, pick that album up as well. His work with Ten Grand/The Vida Blue is astounding. It’s not as refined or quite as emotive as Khayembii’s side, but its certainly pleasing. The screams are insane, and there’s a lot of spoken word on there, spoken word on the verge of screams, which is a trademark of the older emo bands that existed in the early 1990’s. A powerful four songs that are very energetic.

All in all a very solid release. I’d give it a 4.5 if I could, but the only reason it doesn’t deserve a 5 is because The Vida Blue’s side isn’t’ as good as Khayembii’s, and unfortunately, its not the top of their material. Try to get another release by The Vida Blue. The label that put this out has some other crazy good stuff, so I suggest you check that out as well. Keep in mind this may go out of print soon, I’m sure no more than 3,000 copies were made, which is a lot of emo records, but not a lot for a store as big as Interpunk.

For Fans Of: Indian Summer, On the Might of Princes, Portraits of Past, Orchid, Off Minor, Saetia.

Like the description says, these are basically the last recordings The Khayembii Communique ever made. I've heard all of their stuff, I just wish I could find it on vinyl. This band was one of the last testaments to what emo once was, and now they have vanished into thin air just as quickly as they appeared. Amazing recordings. The Vida Blue were another great band, I only listened to them a little bit when they had this name, I really got into them when they used the name Ten Grand. Its been fourteen months since Matt Davis passed away, its just a sad thing when someone so talented gets taken. I suggest this release though, all good recordings, so much passion.
