      Brendan Fraser and Kristen Scott Thomas are attached to star in Neil LaBute's Seconds of Pleasure. Offers are out to Colin Firth and Ed Harris. Rockpile recorded four studio albums, though only one (Seconds of Pleasure) was released under the Rockpile other albums (Tracks on Wax 4 and Repeat When Necessary) were released as Dave Edmunds solo albums, and one more (Labour of Lust) was released as a Nick Lowe solo red Rockpile tracks can also be found on a few other Lowe and Edmunds solo : Rock and roll, pub rock, rockabilly, power .

    One of the most underrated, under the radar bands of the 80s and 90s, Seconds of Pleasure is possibly the most consistent album and features all of the great songwriting, soaring guitars, mood changes and sweeping soundscapes that make the band great/5(13). Considered a cult record, Seconds of Pleasure is really just a great album with tasteful production that’s aged incredibly well. England’s Rockpile was a touring pub-rock supergroup fronted by Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds. Every song here is memorably catchy and good — the band shared a collective enthusiasm for traditional rock ‘n’ roll, but on the Lowe-fronted moments they played.

    Seconds of Pleasure Lyrics: Ooh, girl it's what you say between a phrase / It's written in your face / It's rain against a windowpane the sound it makes / It's dreamin' the day away / It's the. When I Write The Book This song is by Rockpile and appears on the album Seconds of Pleasure (). Now I can remember like it was only yesterday Love was young and foolish like a little child at play But oh how love has changed - I never dreamed how easily For now I'm just a shadow of the.

LaBute infuses Seconds of Pleasure with his trademark wit and black humor and unleashes his imagination in stories that offer unflinching insight into our very human shortcomings and impure urges with shocking candor.“LaBute’s usual sleazy suspects are prepared to risk family, love, career, and freedom for the momentary satisfaction of their sometimes brutal desires.

Only LaBute would call these “seconds of pleasure,” even ironically. Inches beneath the rambling bonhomie in the monologues and dialogues is the unflinching brutality of their casual betrayals and taboo-busting. “Anyway, it was good to see him again.
