A Trip to Marineville is the debut studio album by English art punk band Swell Maps. It was released in June 1979, through record labels Rather and Rough Trade. All tracks except "Vertical Slum", "My Lil' Shoppes 'Round the Corner" and "Steven Does" were recorded in Woodbine Mobile Recording Studio in Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England on 28–29 December 1978, 15 and 17 February 1979 and 15–17 April 1979.
I never really recovered from the moment i first saw a picture of NIkki Sudden, in the 80's i think. He looked like he was in the rolling stones or some naff yank rock band. How could this be?? The Swell Maps sounded like perfect non-rock music, a sound brought to its zenith on the monolithic single "Lets Build a Car". I bought this album blind in 1979 on the strength that it was on Rough Trade, and,as normal, loved it. Falling down rock montage, with a vocalist that sounded like he couldn't be bothered to finish every line he droned. And i never saw any pictures of them,.

Don't Throw Ashtrays At Me! Исполнитель. A Trip To Marineville. Swell Maps' debut album was a scattershot affair, ranging from blistering three-chord punk to free-form noise experiments, that was intriguing, yet frequently incoherent.
Swell Maps didn’t give two bits of a flying about how this album comes off to people; they just had their absolute fun with it and that enthusiasm and complete exuberance are shining and glowing and dragging you in one song at a time. I cannot say that the aforementioned officer Daniels changed and turned my life around, because I already was on a correctional path towards being better, but he certainly secured my determination to become someone better. And I tried my hardest. I wouldn’t want to relive that, but I like remembering. And A Trip to Marineville helps that like nothing else.

Swell Maps had been around for quite some time before actually going into the studio to record their debut, but you can't really tell since the album is a chaotic mess from beginning to end (in a good way). But it does feature two distinct halves. The first side consists mostly of short punk songs that match up considerbly well with pretty much any of the other pre-eminate punk bands of the era.
