Bout time for some legitimate, major league blues stuff, I haven't put any up for a little while......well, it's the
great John N to rescue the day, sending us three fab Muddy Waters albums.....tremendous stuff here, of course, and thanks again to John N for the continued variety and quality that he sends this way.....lovers of metal/70's style hard rock, blues masters such as Muddy Waters (also Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, etc)......this shit is totally off the charts, I mean, obviously, I prefer the more modern hard rock, but this stuff sends a chill down my spine every time.........tremendous albums here, and I think there might be a bit more to come (JL Hooker, actually, tonight or tomorrow).......just stunning stuff, don't cheat yourself by missing these.
I'M READY (1978)-01 01 I'm Ready/02 33 Years/03 Who Do You Trust/04 Copper Brown/05 I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man/06 Mamie/07 Rock Me/08 Screamin' and Cryin'/09 Good Morning Little School Girl/10 No Escape From the Blues/11 That's Alright/12 Lonely man Blues
KING BEE (1981)-01 I'm a King Bee/02 Too Young to Know/03
Mean Old Frisco/04 Forever Lonely/05 I Feel Like Going Home/06 Champaign and Reefer/07 Sad Sad Day/08 (My Eyes) Keep Me In Trouble/09 Deep Down In Florida No. 2/10 No Escape From the Blues/11 I Won't Go On/12 Clouds In My Heart
Trying to keep the submissions varied, yet, I care about quality as well....these three albums are tremendous in my book, hope you think so as well........great stuff here.
Several members of cut their musical teeth together during their middle school years and their natural ease and friendship is apparent throughout . Every member contributes to the writing process and to the arrangement of songs. Working with at his isolated country studio, with all the instruments he has amassed, was integral to the expanded sound on this new record. While their debut album was mostly recorded live, was recorded with each member in isolation, allowing for more edits and overdubs. On songs like “Dervishing” and “Astral Plane,” there are layers upon layers of sound to dig into, with acoustic guitar, keyboards, and even flute being added to the band’s potent brew. picked up the baritone guitar and added some Arp as well. , one of the best rock guitarists working today, shows off his chops, but also his incredible restraint, throughout. In addition to the stretches of outright shredding, such as on opener “Burbank’s Dream,” or the climax of “The Beacon”, there are moments such as the breakdown on “I’ve Been Down,” in which Mitchell employs subtle melodic flourishes that slowly build in intensity. is a sonically rich collection of heavy rock and roll.
In 2012 was called “The Bay Area’s best new psych band” by the , which was followed by a torrent of praise for their live shows throughout California. Although has previously only made a few appearances outside of the Golden State they plan to remedy that this fall with US dates as well as shows in Europe.
Here is some of MY kinda music, ya know, that stoner/hard-heavy psych stuff that I love so much......well, here, compliments of the aforementioned John N, are the albums of Golden Void......I'm listening, they kick nothing BUT serious ass, and since John N went to the trouble to attach a review, I may as well send it along:
Every now and then I'm gonna drag out something like this.....not great, not a future classic, not even close....but you know what it is? OBSCURE rock that was part of a "scene" at one time....I'm gonna bet most of ya never heard of them, and frankly, they ain't THAT good.....but they ARE worth giving a listen to, it's second-line, undercard new wave , attempting, it would seem, to sound like 1983 or so, actual released in 2013..........the band made another album or two, this one ("Dreams in the Rat House"), is a pretty fair retro-listen, I kinda like it, listening from THAT persepective.......anyway, give this a try, NOT awful, also NOT great, it is "what it is" as they say (I dislike that expression, but so it goes).......it's not bad, and it fits the format here (obscure punk) to a "T".....so, there ya be.......the "retro-80's" sound is great, it works well, and there is a good chance you might like this one (I personally like the track "Unlearn")......simply stated,you never know what the fuck I might put up on a given day, but I hope (against hope) that I'm going about it the right way, with a (hopefully) smooth blend of rock n roll from each of the touchstones of my life.....I just hope I am doing a good job, believe it or not, I REALLY do worry about that kinda thing........
DREAMS IN THE RAT HOUSE-01 Hey Willy/02 Rip Van Winkle/03 Bed Rock/04 Ozma/05 If I Could Count/06 In the River/07 The Rat House/08 The Rabbit's Nose/09 Heads or Tails/10 Unlearn/11 Into a Dream/12 I Know
Not a classic by any means, but an enjoyable listening experience, and something just a tiny bit different? Well, yeah....I love stuff like this (that's why my stash is overrun with it), it's only rock n roll, my children, BUT, (usually) I like it..........
A good submission from John N, a lesser-known (to me at least) 1960's psych band, Graffiti released (I think) only this one LP in 1968....it's pretty fair, I think I have it in my stash somewhere, John N sent me this copy......mellow-ish, California-style late 60's psych.......worth a listen, worth a listen......might remind you of Quicksilver, or God knows whom else.....not an essential album, but not everything needs to be.......the price is right, check out some fairly good late 60's psych rock here......not bad, really, not at all.
GRAFFITI-01 Father Protctor/02 The Capture of Me-Life Blood/03 Jingle Jangle Woman/04 New Life-Girl On Fire-Cold Water-Love In Spite/05 Ugly Mascara/06 He's Got the Knack
In all seriousness, could this possibly be the most comprehensive set of Clash boots ever assembled in one
place? I mean, I assume it's not, there is probably some web site dedicated to Clash boots that has more, but my God, there is a lot in this collection. I already had a bunch of em, but there's a lot here I didn't have, also, and hell, it IS the Clash........one of the greats. Remember, Lewdd has warned us ahead of time that the sound quality will vary on these, as he keeps them for archival value, some sound like gold, some, well, don't, but they all serve a purpose.......and there are still a BUNCH more to come, and after that, Lewdd has comprehensive stacks of Misfits, Jam, and Pistols shows as well that we will be digging into....so thanks Lewdd, I'm happy to be allowed to be a part of this project, "The Great 'Share-the-Clash-boots' Project"......and here are todays selections!

Sent to us from an Anonymous contributor (he included his name on the email but I will protect his anonimity
if that is what he desires.........here's his email with his ID blocked out......
Scott, Thank you for the Lewdd Xmas tuneage! Here's some rare holiday cheer for lovers of skronkin', droll, acid dipped, beat blasted, nihilistic noise, featuring Melt Banana, Merzbow, God Is My Co-Pilot, S.O.B., Secret Chiefs 3, Seagull Screaming Kiss Her Kiss Her, Gastr Del Sol, & Hair Stylistics.
Merry Xmas and to all a good season!
Might as well blast through another letter, "P" this time in the 16th part of the Garage Fuzz-monster
blowout......if you missed the announcement the other day, I am thrilled to tell you that once I get through the alphabet, I have discovered another Torrent, similar to this one, that will be the "Son of Garage Fuzz" or something.......guys, that Torrent is just as stacked as this one, and just as big too.......so enjoy this one, and once we get through "Z", we'll be unveiling the new "Son Of" series, which will be just as bad ass as this one is.......this stuff (Nugget rock) is among my faves, so to get a whole new semi-load of it to share with you is a blessing for ME!
POSITIVELY 13 O'CLOCK-Psychotic Reaction/24 POWERED BY LOVE-Powered By Love/25
POWERS OF BLUE-Satisfaction/26 PREMIERS-Get on This Plane/27 PRIDE & JOY-If You're Ready/28 PURPLE CANTEEN-Brains in My Feet/29 PURPLE GANG-Bring Your Own Self Down/30 PURPLE GANG-Looking Glass/31 PURPLE GANG-One of the Bunch/32 PURPLE SUN-Doomsday
Letter "Q" on deck, guessing THAT one may get merged with "R", interestingly enough that will be the FIRST letter that I will have merged, a testimony to the vast number of songs in this gigantic torrent.......a great, great collection, thanks to whomever created it, ya done good!
Here is some Brazilian punk spanning a surprisingly large time frame, roughly 1985-2003......stuff like this,
when I post it (meaning foreign language stuff) is either wildly beloved (by some), or overwhelmingly ignored.....I know some don't care for the non-English stuff, but I think we deprive ourselves of some fine music when we let a small obstacle like understandable lyrics get in the way......these sets (eight of em, not sure if that is the complete story or not, but all I got)....are damn fine, high energy punk rock n roll......Clash-style, perhaps, maybe a (never thought I'd use THIS phrase) Hispanic Stiff Little Fingers or Rancid.......yes I know how silly that sounds, but LISTEN to the damn things, and tell me I'm wrong (I'm not).
Several different lads made up the lineup here, I think maybe vocalist Mao might have been a constant, and he's a good one, again, something of a Joe Strummer-like shouter, and often times, some damn good punk guitar turns up on these albums, compliments of (mostly, I think) a guitarist by the name of "KK" (I think it is highly unlikely that it was KK Downing from Judas Priest, before you answer it's a JOKE, son).....
All of these albums have their moments, I like them a good bit. Try the earlier ones first and then follow them
as their sound builds (somewhat).....anyway, some good punk rock, which, in fact, a few American ears ought to hear. In particular, the ones who refer to stuff like Blink 182 or even something more wretched as "punk"......at the very least, this would be the real article.

Little bit o work here, but worth it if it hips just one person to some new tunes......
I think I may have done a JL Hooker post before, not certain, but if I receive something like this in my email, I'm posting it....something of a sorta-like kinda companion piece to the Muddy Waters stuff posted the other day, this is (like Muddy was) a submisssion to this blog from the galaxy's no.1 link sharer, John N, and I DO NOT mean that in any way other than with full respect......that guy has sent me a MOUNTAIN of stuff, and all I have to do is post it, I hope he NEVER quits, he sends such incredible stuff....so, let's see what we got today......

(scott) this is the third portion of the Brown Acid series, if I am not mistaken, forgiegn correspondent Studkid sent us the first two as well.....tremendously lesser-known stuff here, and you know I always love that......this is my first priority listen this evening! You may know that this era-genre (unknown heavy-psych ca. late 60's-early 70's is one of my VERY faves!)
Third batch of Brown Acid
Chook - Cold Feet 03:13
Diehard - Heartbreak 03:03
Blown Free - The Wizard 03:52
Factory - Time Machine 06:03
We have another newer band that has requested removal of their material from the blog. It is done.....in the past, I'd simply make fun of the band and never hear of them again, this one, well......this I thought was a REALLY good album.....and I said so, praised the hell out of it......it's REALLY tremendous, and to cement that notion, over 200 peeps downloaded it before it was removed. So, I apologize to the band, I didn't ralize you wanted FEWER people to hear your music......some bands prefer EXPOSURE, it's all in the eye of the beholder. Good album though, I think we REALLY could have helped you spread it around a good bit (especially with the type of music that I (scott) personally prefer, it was tailor-made for this blog).....no problems though, I'll ask that those 200+ DL'ers PLEASE delete the files and DO NOT listen to this band.....it's my bad, I thought it would be ok, but, sometimes you never know.
Best of luck to you, "band". I hope your "BIG TIME" opinion of yourselves equates to "BIG TIME" success for you, and just as few listeners as you desire, I hope you receive even FEWER!
(scott) I probably posted these before, but if so it was a long while back......these are really cool and thanks
to Studkid for sending them along.......wonderful stuff here, really, Miracle Workers, Chesterfield Kings, Yard Trauma, and lots more latter-day garage-greats....if you didn't grab this last time please don't miss, these are worthwhile for most anyone I am guessing! Thanks Studkid and keep up the wonderful submissions!

John N sent me this one a while back, don't think I've ever put it up, but I certainly should have, my error.....My Vitriol were a UK alternapop/shoegaze type of band ca. early 00's. They had a good album ("Finelines", in 2001, which I though I had buta can't find), and sort of faded away......this "Secret Session" is loaded with both great rocking pop of the era, PLUS the real roots of the current psych-shoegaze stuff that I currently praise so much.....good one to listen to, rocking and unique. I recommend, and thanks to John N even if belated, this is a good one.
SECRET SESSIONS-01 We've Lost Our Way/02 It's So Damn Easy/03 If Only....(God Only Knows)/04 (All These) Days/05 Rest Your Tired Head/06 London City Lights/07 The Agonies and the Ecstacies/08 Lord Knows How I've Tried/09 This Time/10 Nightcall
Good submission, good album. Anybody got "Fineline" or are you gonna make me dig out MY copy?
(scott) here is a nice John N contribution, the (I think) complete works of The Eyes, a Stones-ish mid 60's garage rock crew.......good stuff, too, both the originals ("When the Night Falls", "I'm Rowed Out", lots more) and the Stones "tribute".......this is enjoyable shit, somewhat lesser-known mid-60's Nugget rock.....I love this shit.......this is some good stuff on this album, please don't miss, and thanks to John N this rocks hard core.

Kiss my ass, I always loved Iron Maiden......my VERY fave metal band of the 1980's, which was a shit
decade for music ESPECIALLY metal....however, I LOOOOOOOvvvvved me some Iron Maiden, thier speeded-up metal, imo , foresaw stoner rock, that's just me......but I have quite a Maiden stash, albums, boots, EP's, etc,......and I think I will start posting in increments......Iron Maiden was bad ass on record, SUPER BAD ASS live, and fit this blog to a "T"......tonight a great treat, actually, the early Iron Maiden studio albums.......there will be more to come, another one of my "series that take a while"....(see "Runaways").....but I've always loved Maiden, so ABOUT TIME I woke up some of you sleepers....THE best metal band of the 80's in my opinion......here are 5 albums, and we WILL get to a lot more in the coming weeks!

(scott)- I think, somehow, it's hard for a band of this style/genre/era to be anything close to under-rated, or under-appreciated.......well, Iron Maiden were that band......better than ANYONE else of the era at cranking out the metal, and hey, I saw them all......this was a DOWN time for rock n roll as a whole (the 80's), but Maiden scorched it on record AND in their amazing stage shows, as for pure volume, in my personal history only Motorhead and The Who were louder, and Maiden, as pointed out before, gave us some GREAT songs (see above, and more to come)......this does not meet the category of "guilty pleasure", like some metal
This is a little different, not that that has ever meant much to me, John N sends this fab Podcast of a radio
show, the propriety of Elizabeth Klieswsicz.....not at all familiar with the radio show, but I do know this......some fabulous music on this.......Yo La Tengo? Lurkers? Sham 69? as well as newer faves like Dead Horse One and Magic Shoppe, two bands I've been SERIOUSLY trying to pimp for the last few months.....thanks a zillion John N for your efforts to educate people to great rock, both new AND old, and this is a fab combination of BOTH......readers: this is what we (all) are about......the rock n roll.....sorry if you are after something else, THIS blog is about the rock n roll, and that's about it.......that's the goal here, to get you great folks the greatest in rock n roll, both new and old and all stops in between!
Staying in a semi-Runaways groove for a minute, this collection has religious connotations for myself, as I
have long been fascinated by the religion of Lita-ism.......I personally am hoping to advance rapidly in the church, hoping my oral skills advance me somewhat. I would buy a CD of Lita Ford vomitting, so there ya be.....I've posted these before, but with the recent Jett posts, these and some Runaways band (coming soon), we should have a fairly complete selection in the archive.
Lita's made some less than spectacular albums, but for the most part, they are enjoyable listens, far more 80's metal than Joan's retro-70's glam, so let's take a quick tour of what we have here......
The following year, my sweetie pie released "Dancin' On the Edge".....again a so-so effort, a few pretty decent hard rockers, "Gotta Let Go" and the fab "Run With the $" are worth anyone's ear.
The real winner of the Lita Ford collection is "Lita" (1988)......a great opener entitled "Back to the Cave",
her best number (by far) a speedy rant called "Can't Catch Me", a cool power ballad "Kiss Me Deadly", and a duet with Ozzy Osbourne "Close My Eyes Forever"......now THIS is a fine album, if you want to sample but one, it is this, no question. I once read a review that said Lita understood the difference between "trashy fun" (this album) and plain "trash", (most everything else)......"Stiletto" is a step down, a few hard rockers, but not up to the standard set by "Lita" at all.
As you can tell I love me some Lita, have for many years........hope you guys enjoy these Lita Ford tracks and albums as much as I enjoy dragging them out on occasion!

All hail Goddess LITA!
(scott) a new (2016) submission from John N, I am not really terribly familiar with Echolust, but I am listning right now, and I do approve!.......the very trippy, noisy, shoegaze rock that I champion so much, another volume of that great stuff........here's a brief summary that was sent along with the link
Shoegazers hailing from Long Beach California, Echolust— have released their debut LP following the release of a clutch of singles this past year such as Zombie ...
Anyway, I'm digging it, again, to ME, THIS is the sound of ultra-hip modern day rock n roll in the 2010's.......fine stuff, I just love it like I loved the "stoner" stuff when it took off too....might be years before peeps appreciate this stuff, but at the end of the day, we will ALL be ahead of the curve..........fine album don't miss.
