    Apparently there are thre discs in the "USA Garage Greats" series that I never got, or lost , or something over the years,,,,,they are entitled "BEHIND LOCKED DOORS"......"STAND UP GIRLS"....and "WHAT IN TH WORLD PART 2".......maybe I have them somewhere and cannot find them. Maybe I lent them out and never gor them back.....maybe someone mis filed them and they are somewhere make in the mass canverse of CD's that is my back room.....anyway, I have no idea where they are.....SOMEONE, SOMEONE OUT THERE has them and will share them with us, to complete our sets.......SOMEONE. I have done MY share, take it to the bank, now smoenone dod a good deed and provide these ones. I already hae lists pouring in of missing discs, EVEN THOUGH I HAVE NOT ASKED for them yet, but they will be filled, and these other three willl be filled also, provided someone can find them for us! that'll bring u to 175 total discs. I have an idea, let me check my catalouge for them, BRB......OK, I find there IS/WAS "What in the World Part 2", cannot find it in my stuff.......my catalogue makes no mention of "Behind LOcked Doors" or "Stand Up Girls",,,,IF THEY EXIST and you have one, two, or all three of them PLEASE LET ME KNOW, we will work something out, even if I have to pay you.

  • 12/28/12--11:28: OK, Bring em out
  • Present me with the lists of missing discs.....those that were eatten by Mediafirea nd ZIppyshare.....we will get started MONDAY on filling the gaps in for you guys. DO NOT ask for ones that are currently readilly available, I will make you look beyond foolish. If you have ALREADY submitted me a list (AS I ASKED YOU NOT TO), please submit it again, because RIGHT HERE is where I am going to look for them (see? see? I really DID have a reason). PLEASE check and make sure that nothing you are missing is still available through either Mediafire or (more likely) Zippyshare.....some of the ZIppyshare links are getting old and "delete" themselves with 30 days of no activity, so IF you have a Zippyshare volume that is OLDER, back around part 8-9 someting like that GO GET IT before bothering me with it please. the three discs that I discovered to be missing, and were kindly supplied by garageman, are linked under the post "I Knew it Wouldn't be this easy", they are Rapidshare files which can be kind of a pain but be patient and you will get them. Someone here somewhere printed a list of all 175 discs or whatever it is, print it out, store it on your computer, so you can cross reference. WE WILL GET HIS DONE, just PLEASE work WITH me......I am going to my son's basketball tourney out of town tonight and tomorrow and as soon as I get home saturday I am watching the Vikings with a chance to earn a playoff spot, a Christmas miracle II.....after that, I will start on this project, and will work on it all week if need be, it will go quicker because I am not typing all those track names and hunting down pictures and blah blah......get your lits ready, and come SUNDAY evening we will be ready to rock on this project. I thank each and every one of you, for participoating, for commenting, downloading, special thanks for garageman for the three missing discs, AWESOME!, and of course, special thanks to Ryp and Gyro without whom this wonderful project would not exist........Very, very, very few comments on my Christmas "Gallery of Visual Perversions" feature, I guess it's not too popular.....I was thinking of continuing it, I have enough material for another millenium, but if that aint what you folks want i am here to please.....perhaps another blog? See you Sunday Night GO VIKINGS, GO LIONS (My sons team!)

  • 12/28/12--14:46: KEEP EM COMING
  • I mwill be away from my computer until late Sunday but will check in via my phone etc on occasion....keep them coming. PLEASE try to have them completed by Monday. Monday I will start getting to work, and we will get this thing wrapped up. Remember to CHECK missing link,s they MAY work this time (I doubt it) and do not forget the three rapid share links that one of the true friends of the blog submitted to round out the discs that I ahd lost or whatever over the years! I've been working hard on this, every day, please allow me a LITTLE breather to let me go watch my son play some basketball and Monday we will right back at it, Hope everyone has a good remainder of their holiday weekend, Happy new Year GO VIKINGS BEAT THE PACKERS and SHOCK THE WORLD (and me) BY MAKING THE PLAYOFFS.....GOOD LUCK EMMANUL CHRISTIAN LIONS IN THE HARVEST PREP TOURNEY! I LOVE all you guys who read my blog (really, even though I sometimes call you names and such and sometimes enjoy making you look foolish, but that is what love is about!)........Ihope you guys stay with m once this series completes I really do have a WAY COOL CD colelction (15000+) that I wish to share with anyone who wishes to enjoy the same esoteric tastes as myself.....and there's alwyas the Visual Gallery of Perversion, as well!

  • 12/31/12--21:24: Happy New Year
  • At least it is now 2013 in Ohio, USA......I haven't forgotten all you wonderful people....I got a little burned out posting that whole "USA Garage Greats 1965-67" series, (oh my God I never DREAMED......)....I am going, I swear, sometime this week to start uploading the early volumes that some of you guys haven't gotten....i swear I want EVERYONE that has been enjoying this great series to have ALL of it if they desire.....thanks to all you guys, YOU really put my blog "on the map" with your overwhelming response to this series, and it SHOULD be overwhelming, because the series is so great....the thanks for that go to, as I have said so many times, to Ryp and Gyro at Twilight Zone, who created this, I just hoped to revive interest in it 5 years after the fact and LORD did I ever.....I have everyone's lists of the "missing" discs, look for them later this week. If, after that, you are STILL missing something, contact me (csgmiller@sbcglobal.net) and we will get you hooked up...this is THE most badass series EVER and I WANT everyone who wants it to have ALL of it, really, that is damned important to me....just taking a minute to breathe over the holidays, after getting the whole thing up in a month or so. After that I will resume posting some of the more esoteric stuff in my collection, and maybe some of you will stick around, maybe some will leave, and that is fine too.....1960's garage rock is FAR from my only love, I am a huge fan, also, of 1960's psych, 1970's punk,  1990's grunge, most all metal, new wave, power pop.....just ROCK N ROLL in general. If you like some of the same stuff as I do, I hope you stick around and maybe find something new or something you like. If you are ONLY here as a fan of the "Garage Greats" series, that is cool ,too, glad I could be of help.

    Hope 2013 treats all of you well. Hell, I hope it treats ME and MINE well, too.

    Rock N Roll!

  • 01/03/13--12:13: Here come the Missing Links

  • I think this might be the easiest way of doing this thing.....I am going to repost all the discs from the FIRST SIX posts, and if I can specifically find something more recent than that that you are missing, I'll put that up too.....I THINK most everything from 7 to present is still available on Zippyshare, but they only stay up for 30 days if noone downloads them for that period....hopefully some late comers saved the day on that. OK, here is what I ask you to do NOW, in the comments section of THIS post. List any disc you are missing, that is in PART SEVEN or MORE RECENT......got it? PART SEVEN or MORE RECENT. FIRST CHECK IF THEY ARE AVAILABLE.....you have no idea how mad at you I will be if you tell me you need this disc or that disc and I go chack and find it to be avaialable. LIVID! Don't do that to me, I am such a great guy. OK, I am STARTING the reups for Parts 1-6 RIGHT NOW. The links will be up (some of em) later tonight/tomorrow......I won't get this done in a day....(here is another important part, pay attention).....subsequent (that means "the ones that follow") uploads will ALL (that means "every one) be in the comments section of THIS post. THIS ONE. There won't be another one, DO NOT use ANY OTHER POST'S comment section for ANYTHING TO DO with "USA Garage Greats", as of RIGHT NOW......USE THIS ONE. The links will be HERE and any requests for missing discs will be HERE also. DO NOT go to part 15 and tell me that you need something from there and post it under part 15......POST IT HERE. Here, here, here. Not there. Not anywhere else.

    If it feels as though I am talking down to you, and you are offended, contact me and I'l show you some of the private emails I've gotten on these discs, and you will FULLY understand the reasoning. OK, the first disc is "going up" right now. Don't know how many I'll get up there today, tomorrow, Saturday, whenever, we will get there, I WILL TAKE CARE OF YOUR NEEDS, but HERE HERE HERE HERE, I cannot stress that enough. Also DO NOT REQUEST ANYTHING IN THE FIRST SIX PARTS. I am going to cover that. Be a little patient and we will get this thing put to bed, and then NEVER AGAIN will I put up any disc from this series, and if you request one after I say so, I am going to teall you to send me some money first, and then I, so help me God I am going to keep your money and not send you ANYTHING. Also, the guy who wants the Dwarves discs, I wll reup THOSE HERE ALSO (I know I said I'll send them to you in the mail, but I am just going to reup those as well, you, sir, I will personally email the links to (I have your addy and I really am sorry that it's taken me so long to get to ya, gimme couple more days)......


    So, I know I have picked up some new readers in this last month or so......so, anything you guys want? I MIGHT be inclined to repost some stuff I already have posted, that is no longer available.....here is how you would handle this: You would say, "Scott, I just recently discovered your amazing blog. I went back and reread EVERY ONE of your brilliant posts....I would DEARLY LOVE to hear those really badass sounding Nightstaker discs (or whatever), but the links are no longer active....you describe them so brilliantly, I would do ANYTHING to hear them".....do this and maybe I will put them up, and maybe not....but that is a starting point anyway. You could also WRITE your request on a pair of , say, Pink's soiled undies and mail them to me, that would maybe get my attention. I need LUNCH!......


    And so it is written.....hopefully next week I will go back to semi-regular postings, and you will stick around here.....if you were just here for the Garage Greats, that's great too, it's been fun. This blog belongs to ALL you guys, only the CD's per se belong to me, if you want something put up (You should know my tastes by now, if not GO BACK AND READ) let me know, we'll see what happens.....punk, metal, psych, stoner, power pop.....pretty much all of it.


    Best of luck to the Vikings vs the Packers in the playoffs this week, too......just an amazing season for the Vikes, who I was as wrong about as a person could POSSIBLY be the entire season (even when they were 9-6 I never dreamed they'd make the playoffs......I personally think they'll lose to Green Bay this week, but since I've been wrong about EVERYTHING they've done so far (I also figured Adrian Peterson was about finished too, GEEEEEZ).....by a stroke of cruel fortune, the game kicksoff at EXACTLY the same time as my son's basketball game Saturday, so I will have to TIVO it and watch after I get home......it'll be alright as long as some tool doesn't come up to me at the basketball game and say "Wow the Vikings are really kicking ass in the first half, huh?"......I am even thinking of putting up a sign at the scorer's table (I am the scorer) that says "IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE VIKINGS/PACKERS PLAYOFF GAME DO NOT SAY ANYTHING TO ME ABOUT IT I WANT TO WATCH IT WHEN I GET HOME", but if I do THAT it'd be almost like a written invitation for people to bother me ("Why DON'T you want to know?  Where do baby kitties come from?") just gonna hope for the best I guess.

    Have a good weekend and the links will be up when they get up.

    I think we are about to put this thing to bed.....I know I have 1 or 2 requests from some of the later Parts.....I've got a LON standing Dwarves reup I told the guy I'd do, and a sweet little girl wishing some Sleater Kinney......I'll take care of all those in the enxt few days. ANYTHING ELSE, before I re-start as though "Garage Greats" were just a dream/mirage? OLDER Reups? Ask nicely, MAYBE you'll get em it it's not too much work. BUT top priority is Garage Greasts.....if you are missing any discs LATER THAN Part 6, please tell me in THIS thread, OR THE ONE BELOW designated for those things (some such as Friend of the Blog Exetor already followed the instructions and WILL be getting his missing disc next day or two.....you too Derrick Singleton of Tucson AZ....I know I said it a while agao, but I'm gonna get em for ya, now that the Garage-Greats-craziness is about at an end.

    FINAL WARNING: DO NOT contact me later than (I will draw a LINE IN THE SAND), let us say, Monday January 14 for anything to do with Garage Greats......DO NOT. I will not accept requests for them, and I will make merciless fun of you as well. You have been forewarned, just follow the instructions and we can ALL have this set in it's entirity, But I do not wish to spend even a small percentage of my life on it after that date. Fair ENough?

    She (I HOPE it's a she, remembering the whole "Andie James" debacle) seems to be a fan of one of the greatest of all AMerican bands, Sleater Kinney,, such a shame she missed out on the "Best Speater Kinney Post EVER, Parts 1-7), last summer.....but anyaway, in keeping with the rules, she asked NICELY, she wanted ONE good SK boot an dsince I probably have 100 of them, I will turn THREE Of them loose for Erin! Enjoy, Erin, and hope you become a PERMANENT Friend of the BLog as so many others have! Enjoy these and PLEASE us know what your opinion of them is!

    THE LINKS WILL BE IN THE COMMENTS SECTION IN A LITTLE WHILE AFTER I GET EM LOADED.....That Sleater Kinney 7-part post was one of my favorites I ever did. REALLY enjoyed it, ALL of their albums, probably 100 live shows, studio rarities, Peel Sessions, plus stuff from Corin Tucker Band, Wild Flag, Quasi, Heavens to Betsy......I think (unlike when I USUALLY use this term some what sarcastically) it REALLY WAS the "best" Sleater Kinney post ever. I'd need a bunch of encouragement to see that there is a desire, but I could be pursuaded to put that one back up again.....I LOVE me some SLeater Kinney, simply one of the USA's greatest bands, not best "chick" bands, not best "modern" bands, ONE OF THE USA'S BEST ROCK N ROLL BANDS PERIOD. Just an idea, but if you'd like me to take it on again, please say so here. And say hi to Erin Lyndal Martin, I bet she is a wonderful person and FAR too high on the evolutionary scale to hang out with dregs like US!

    As I said, Links in a couple hours, unless problemos arise.

    OK.....trying to put the Garage Greats thing behind me now.....I will still honor requests for missing discs, as long as you put them in the proper place and are niec about it. After Monday 1/14/13, NO MORE....I have to draw the line somewhere, I want to get around to doing some of the OTHER things that made this blog, uhhh, "great"......I REALLY apapreciate all of the new "friends of the blog" I have inherited during the "Garage Greats" period but I am totally burned out on it, and I hope that the most of you stick around and enjoy some of the other fine, esoteric music that lines my sheleves.....if you were here ONLY for the "Garage Greats", thanks, you helped really put the blog on the map, if your tastes run pretty much only in that direction, I'll tell you right now it'll likely be a while before I run down that alleya gain, but ya never know. Thanks to everyone who patronizes my blog, who comments, who listens, who gives a shout out to the occasional "Gallery of Visual Perversion" bonuses......SPECIAL thanks to those (months ago) who took the time to check oout my great friends SAMAX, their videos and MP3's are still avaialble here somewhere, they truly ARE stars of the future should there be even a modicum of justice in our universe.

    It took me a while to think of what I was going to do after qrapping up the "Garage Greats" series and related fill-ins......Tonight we venture to the early 1970's glam-rock era, to Japan of all places, to investigate the legendary SADISTIC MIKA BAND! I loed this band in Junior High, most of my running amtes HATED them (that non-English language bias creeping in and showing its ugly self again).....to me they somewhat reminded me of my VERY FAVORITE band of the era, Roxy Music, if a Japanese Roxy Music is something you can get your mind around.

    For the most part Sadistic Mika Band were Guitarist/synthist/vocalist Kazuhiko Kato, his wife Singer Mika Kato, Yukihiro Takashi on drums, Masayoshi Takanaka on Guitar, synth, and vox, and bassist Rey Ohara.

    Thier 1973 self-titled debut is a winner, if you can get INTO SOMETHING  different and of coure can deal with the Japanese vocals.....I enjoy it quite a bit, "Galaxy Way" and "I'm Sittin on the Edge of the Skies" remind me of the glam rock greats of the era, previously mentioned Roxy Music and maybe some T Rex......it's a fine album, expand your horizons.

    Second album "Black Ship" is just as fine if not better, this time even the TITLES are for the most part in Japanese.....the last track is conveniently entitled "Sayanora", WHO SAYS we can't understand any of their international meanings? Album 3 pretty much completes the picture, it is entitled "Hot! Menu!", and they seem to attempt to strtech out a bit musically, the first two tracks are instros.....the finale, "Tequila Sunrise" is NOT a version of the Eagles non-clalssic, but rather Mika babbling about some drug she took, and by the end of the track, she seems to be snoring! Hard to make this stuff up gang!

    Hey I am SO HAPPY today.....the Garage Greats series, while a fine accomplishment in my ego-inflated opinion, is OVER.....now I can get back to the stuff I LOVE the unsearched corridors and creavices of the great mansion that IS rock n roll.......OK, you guys were GREAT with your comments on Garage Greats. Please keep up the comments, now that things are back to norm....if you are new, pleae browse through the old posts and you can see what I am about.......and I would love to hear any requests that you guys would like to have put up here......it's OUR blog, they are just MY CD's ....no idea what it'll be tomorrow, but you know I'll ahve SOMETHING for you, something that hopefull you were unfamilar with or "always wanting" to hear.....

    Kazuhiko Kato took his own life in 2009.....hopefully he is at peace now.

    Rember de drill! Links in a little while. I love all you people and hopw the come-lately "Garage Greats" crowd sitcks around and contributes.......we are all about SHARING music......(I haven't done this one for a while)......sharing, not stealing.....if for any reason anything I post here hurts your delicate feelings, ask ME (as did Bratmobile), and I will remove it......If you wish FEWER people to hear your music than MORE people to hear your music, THAT is up to you and I will comply.....but we are SHARING.....not stealing......IF you have been brainwashed into thinking otherwise, think about what your Mom told you when you were little......"Always share....sharing is GOOD" she told you. She was correct. There is lots of great music out there that some of us cannot access......if I have it, I will SHARE it with you.....hopefully, you with me, as well. If only the REST of the world operated as such.

    Love ya see ya tomorrow with GOd knows what!

    OK, ZERO downloads for the Sadistic Mika Band? I mean NOT A ONE? Come on guys, work with me here a little.....OK, let's revrt for a moment to the "glory days" of "mega-posts", and see how you like this one.....who's up for some JOY DIVISION!?!?

    Originally formed as Warsaw in Manchster in the mid-1970's, Joy Division quickly developed their own unique style of mope-rock that could make Nine Inch Nails "The Downwad Spiral" sound like "The Ramones Leave Home". Truth be told, they were always a bit "much" for me, they took being miserable WAY seriously, wittnessed, of course, by the fact that frontman Ian Curtis killed himeslf on the eve of the band's US tour. Such is life.

    The band consisted of Singer Curtis, guitar/keyboardist Bernard Sumner, bassist Peter Hook, and drummer Stephen  Morris. Most definitley they had a hard core following, were quite influential, and, I beleive, remain to this day the favorite band of my younger brother. They released some single and EP's, some of which will turn up here on the box set, and also released an album as "Warsaw" which I THINK I have and will have to go try to find.

    "Unknown Pleasures" was released in 1979, haunting and dark, with songs like "She's Lost Control", "Shadowplay", and, well, basically the whole album. If you are into this kind of thing, this is a masterwork as is the follow up, "Closer".....I am going to include the original vinyl pressing of "Closer" here, I think it is more appropriate, and then I will tack on the bonus tracks from "Closer Plus".....you'll see.

    These were the only two proper albums of the band's career, prior to Curtis' passing. THe first compilation of rare/live stuff, I think, was "Still", which recaps a lot of the earlier tracks and includes a VERY odd cover of the Velvet Underground's "Sister Ray". The "big time' comp is the four-disc "Heart and Soul" box set, "Closer" and "Unknown Pleasures" in their entirety along with tons of bonus tracks, a rarities disc, and a disc of live stuff. Also we have four full length concert boots of varying quality for 1979-80......Joy Division lovers, your time to, uh, "rejoice"is here. Also found "The Ideal", the Warsaw disc.

    Links will be in the comments section in a whiloe, some maybe not until tomorrow......enjoy and leave a comment if there is something here to your liking. Love you all!

    OK, LOTTA work went into this.....hope to see some good download numbers and good comments one the links are up. I realie this is brutally depressing stuff, it really is, but it serves a purpose no question.......perhaps the next post will be maybe something a bit sunnier? Always looking for suggestions, as I try to make clear. Hope everyone has a good Friday Evening and we'll see what happens tomorrow. But please, if you're a Joy Division fan, grab the stuff you don't have......if your a Joy Division novice (oh, you KIDS), please check this out, it is perhaps the greatest look ever into a truly TORTURED soul, much in it's own way that the music of Nirvana foretold the ultimate, untimely loss of Kurt Cobain. Mr. Curtis, you are missed, I hope that now you are at peace....I always enjoyed your music (when in the right frame of mind), and I know (for one), my brother (mentioned earlier) TRULY loved your work. You DID make the world a better place, sorry that the world couldn't offer you more peace and comfort while you were here.

    Halfway to gone were a second-line stoner/metal band from the early 2000's, somewhat influenced by Alabama Thunderpussy and some of the other southern/stoner bands...they consisted of bassist Lou Gorra, drummer Danny Golin, and guitarist Lee Stuart. They released a split with Alabama Thundrpussy which unfortuntaley I don't have, and afterwards releeased three solid albums, "High Five" (2001), "Second Season" (2002) and "Halfway to Gone" (2004).......all of the releases are quite solid, if you are a fan of stoner rock, metal, or southern rock you will dig these.....Sabbath and Skynyrd come through as the obvious influences, as well as the aforementioned Alabama Thuderpussy and Down....been a while since I've posted any good old teeth-kicking stoner rock, here we go, these guys were pretty damn good. I really enjoy all three of the albums, hope you will also. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE leave a comment, as I said previously, I don't know where this blog is "heading".......more "garage rock comps"? more of a stoner rock direction? more 1970's punk? All of the above? I HAVE TO KNOW what you guys want, and I promise you I will deliver!


    This stuff is not a HUGE favorite of mine, but it's pretty good, hard rocking stuff, and worthwhile if you are unfamilar......leave a comment if you feel moved in any way to do so.......and please, let me know what you wish to see/hear here....as you see my schedule has gotten a bit irregular since the start of the year, I'd like to get back to something like daily-postings, but I need ideas from the teeming millions!

    First of all if you din't read it under the Halfway to Gone post, I am sick sick sick of Zippyshare, it is almost impossible to get shit uploaded, you would not believe it.....I am sticking with it because obviously it is better for downloading, but I think daily posting is going to be imposssible, thanks to Zippyshit. If you are still interested, the Halfway to Gone links are FINALLY up and available. My apologies, but I am not about to PAY FOR a service to do this shit, and using Mediafire....well, we already know about that. Anyway, I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing. If i takes me a little while longer, so it will have to be. Someone sent me something about Zippyshare that was supposed to explain something about it to me, unfortunatley it was in some language that I don't read, so back to square one......(I love rock n roll in foreign languages, printed word not quite so much).

    Today three discs from a somewhat underappreciated band from Sweden, the Awesome Machine.....formed in the mid-1990's I don't recall them ever really taking off in the US at all, despite three pretty solid albums of grungy stoner-metal. They shifted members around a good bit, but basically the lineup seemed to be for the most part, bassist Anders Wenander, drummer Tobbe Bovik , guitarist Christian Smedström, and vocalist John Harmansen......interesting if unspectacular stuff, pretty good Kyuss-influenced "desert" rock, tight rythems, good guitar work some pretty good vocals.....if you've enjoyed my past stoner-metal stuff, these will fit nicely on your shelf as well.

    I think this was a band that improved with each album, somewhat of the opposite of most band's nrmal career progressions. The first effort, "It's Ugly Or Nothing", is still pretty good, some rocking tunes like "Looking For Sweet Opium" and "No Share"......this was 2000, I think, and then came album #2, "Under the Influence" with perhaps better songs and ighter sound, "Still Got No Share Parts 1 & 2", "Mother's Gone", and "Kick" stand out.

    Personally I take the third album, "Soul of a Thousand Years" as the best of the three, but they really all are worth a listen. It's a collection of good (using this term again) Kyuss (or maybe Queens of the Stone Age)-influenced songs, "Eatting Me Slowly","Bring Out The Dead", plenty of highlights.....From all I can tell they called it a career after this one, and as I said, I know VERY few Yanks that are familair with them. I have NO IDEA if they were a big deal in Sweden or not, perhaps someone from that fine country can inform me (preferably one of those fine blonde swedish babes, yummmmy, a TALL one while I'm asking!).......enjoy the albums, I'll get the links up AS SOON AS I CAN or as soon as zippySHIT will allow me to. Please understand I am working as fast as I can to get you some different tunes up (hopefully) EVERY day, but things have slowed down with the Zippyshare problems.....I'm trying to find a solution, and I hope you bare with me.

    By request from a friend of the blog comes, from Pennsylvania, some pretty fair emo-indie rock, ranging from the mid 1990's to the mid 2000's......not  a HUGE favorite of mine, to be honest, but I was asked if I had any of their stuff, and actually I appear to have just about all of it. Had to relisten to some of it in order to make sure I was remembering them correctly......prety much what I recalled, I'm sure i this is "your" thing you probably fked over these guys.....I really don't know a lot about them, basicall will just recount what I find online and my own observations.

    First album "Understand This is a Dream", is, again, for it's genre (that is not a favorite of mine), pretty good....similar to maybe a couple other bands of the era that weren't exactly at the top of my playlist either, Jimmy Eat World and The Get Up Kids, at least that is who it reminds me of. My memory, prior to refamiliarizing, was that album #2 "Emotion Is Dead" was my favorite, still would say that evaluation holds true, "To the Tune of 5000 Screaming Childen" and "Into the Dark" are better, I think, than anything on the debut, and they seem to have moved into more Green Day/Oasis territory......not the MOST orginal band ever, but originality has never been a prerequisite for rock n roll.

    Seemingly after a lable change they released the EP "Music From Another Room,"nothing spectacular for my money, and followed that up with the decent "Love", which, just a guess and nothing more, is most likely the album the "true beleivers" would rally behind, and it is a pretty good work. Evidently they chose to call it a career after releasing 2005's "Deadbeat Sweetheartbeat"......

    Sorry don't get to excited about them, as I said, this is by request from a friend of the blog, which I am happy to get out there.....I'm sure this band had a ravenous fan base, I obviously thought SOMETHING of them at one time or another since I had their discs around, and if you are a fan of indie/emo rock of that era, you could do much, much worse......enjoy, and leave a comment if you see fit. Links in a little while, Zippyshare willing.

    Well, no, not really.....she can if she WANTS to,  but I haven't heard from her in a while.....hope I didn't make her mad at me or nothin'.....OK, here is whatI want to say, hopefully the Drew thing got your attention.....if you've been paying attention, you know that I am going crazy with Mediafire (easy uploads, impossible downloads), and Zippyshare (easy downloads, NEAR-impossibe uploads at times...) I think (could be wrong) that some of the ZIppshare problem has to do wth the fact that I often try to upload many discs at one time, MAYBE if I do them one at a time I may have more success (keep your fingers crossed, it worked with one of the Juliana Theory discs, seems to be working with another.....anyway, I LIKE how I do my blog, I LIKE posting ten or more discs from a single artist at once, I think it gives my blog a TINY bit of personality of it's own, for whatever that is worth.....I DON'T WANT to change that part of the format. I guess I could, but I DON'T WANT to do it like that, say, and just post one album at a time or whatever...., here is what I will do, which actually makes more sense than how I've been doing things....BEFORE posting, I'll get the link things worked out with Zippyshare.....if it takes me a couple of days, then it takes me a couple of days.....so I don't post for a few days, please check back in....for example, my next post, which is pretty much written, is going to be a mega-super TRULY BEST EVER post from Pavement, ALL their albums, most of them in double length deluxe format, some rarites, BBC sessions, etc.....BUT I am not going to put the post up yet. There are probaby 15 discs or so involved, and if I posted and then didn't get the links up for three days, you guys would just forget about it and understandly so......why I've always done it the ass-backwards way I have (write, post, THEN upload links) I don't really know, it just seemed to work for me, but it just isn't going to be practical.....there were times when I could get a post up every day, but that just isn't going to be the case, in particular if I want to continue the "mega-posts", and they are really something that I (anad hopefully YOU, too) enjoy......

    So here is the skinny....I'm still dicking around with getting those Juliana Theory links up, two more t go......then I will probably vanish for a days, working behind the scenes to get the damn Pavement links workable......once they are, there will be a shiny-new "The Best Pavement Post, Ever"in front of your eyes, and you WON'T have to wait for the links, they will be RIGHT THERE at that time (you know, like how it works on most every other blog out there,  the "correct way" of doing it.

    Late breaking......just watched as Zippyshare "ate" the Juliana Theory's "Love" album, so guess doing them one at a time is NOT the solution. I wish someone who used Zippyshare would tell me what I am doirong, it must be SOMETHING, when the links are succefully uplaoded, the indicator oes to 100%, then the link appears directly below (also under "my acount")....when the links vanish, like this one, the indicator goes to 100%, and then......NOTHING.....it's gone, it's not under "my account" or anywhere else......I am perplexed, it's been like this since I started using Zippyshare, but it has gotten SO much worse of late that I just don' know what to do about it. I hope this solution is amicable, I look forward to the mega-Pavement post and I'm sure others do as well....but God only knows how long it will take me to get the links prepared, so I guess it will be up there when it gets up there, (that is, if I EVER get the Juliana Theory links completed).......

    And that, my friends, is THAT......I can't think of anything ELSE to do......obviously can't use Mediafire anymore......that does YOU guys no good. GOTTA use Zippy, I guess, unless someone knows of another FREE service that I can use....otherwise, don't forget  about me, I'll still be around,creating mega-posts for your enjoyment, cursing the computer when Zippy swallows another link, and trying over and over and over to get these damn things to work. Please understand, I don't WANT to cut back on my "work load", just don't see any choice. Hope its OK with everybody, I just REALLY want to continue the big "mega-post" format for the most part, and I DON'T want you guys waiting days and days for the links after you read the post. Not fair to YOU guys.

    And, again, if anyone knows ANYTHING, any suggestions for making Zippyshare more functional, I am ALL EARS. So thanks for reading, thanks for the comments, thanks for downlaoding, and thank YOU Drew Barrymore, and you know, JUST for "being you".......see ya when I get the Pavement links working, I hope you enjoy it, I think it will be one of the best posts ever, maybe not as epic as "Garage Greats", but maybe on the "Sleater Kinney" level.

  • 01/22/13--13:59: The best Pavement post ever
  • Before I begin to pontificate about the great 1990's band Pavement, I have a request.....ANYONE have the album "Chinese Burn" by The Len Price Three? Seemingly at least a hard one to find, certainly SOMEONE out here could help a brotha out......

    Now as for Pavement....one of the truly great bands of the so-called "alternative" 1990's, Pavement were basically guitarist/vocalist Steven Malkmus, guitarist vocalist Scott Kanneberg, bassist Mark Ibold, drummer Steve West, and percussionist/vocalist Bob Nastanovich. They released five full-lengths in their era, as well as a handfull of EP's.....I THINK that most of the EP tracks have been included on the "expanded/deluxe" reissue versions of the original LP's......

    The debut album, "Slanted and Enchanted" is nothing short of a five-star classic, a slacker masterpiece that sums up an entire era....."Summer Girl", and especially the fab "Conduit for Sale" highlight a genuinely classic, representative album of the early 1990's......do not miss it. The EP "Watery, Domestic" was released afterwards, I THINK I have a copy of it around here to put up (I'll check), the next full length "Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain", is nearly a classic as well, featuring the amazing "Range Life" ("Out On tour with the Smashing Pumpkins, nature's kids, they ain't go no function, I don't udnerstand what they mean and I could really give a fuck").....YES!.....Stone Temple Pilots get slammed as well, gotta LOVE that. Also included is their minor hit "Cut Your Hair" which is a brilliant single that follows "anyband" from the classifieds ("NO BIG HAIR!") to the big time ("Tension and fear.....a career!")....fine album, must hear. Along with "Slanted and Enchanted, these are two of the top twenty albums of that decade.

    The three remaining full lengths "Wowee Zowee", "Brighten the Corners", and "Terror Twilight" have their moments (especially parts of "Wowee Zowee"), but do not be fooled, it is those two GREAT albums previously mentioned if you ahve limited experience or shelf space.....then it is fair to investigate further. I also have a cool 1999 BBC Sessions disc, and a 1995 show from Lolapalooza in Ontario. In addition, the full lengths have all (at least I THINK all) been reissued with bonus stracks, I see tham on Pirate Bay and am going to gab them and post them in THAT format, so you can get all the Pavement that is available. I'm not sure I've heard everything on them, knowing those guys, there had to be a hidden gem or three on there.

    Great, underappreciated band......sort of a "Talking Heads for the 1990's", just TOO DAMN SMART for the rest of us. But taken from ANY vantage point, "Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain", and "Slanted and Enchanted" are great, great albums, 5-star classics (technically I'd say "Crooked Rain" is more of a 4.5 star album), and if you like them, there is plenty more to investigate, in particular if you like snotty, smart-ass rock n roll (I do).

    LOTTA material here.....under my "new" upload policy, God knows how long it will take to get these up,but whenever it is I hope you like these!

    Straight oughta Asutin Texas come Amplified Heat, fuzzed-out grungy psychedelic stoner-blues......what else can I say? They remind me a bit of Alabama Thunderpussy, maybe a bit more of Five Horse Johnson or Dixie Witch,  and, well, you get the idea.....You know I love this shit and I know lots of you guys too can't get enough of it either.......Three good full-lengths and a good EP, I'll have to double check to see if I hae any boots and the like....however, what we DO have here is mighty good stuff. We begin with the self-titled EP "Amplified Heat", fully loaded with great stuff like "Bi-Polar" and "Dead Man Walking", this is a fine EP that any stoner fan will enjoy.

    Next was "In For Sin"(2004), a more "mature" musical statement if you will, and a fine album as well......the band really stretches out and delivers some good tunes ala the longer, trippier tracks such as "Just a Junkie" and the closer "Reflections....I think this is one of the more unappreciated albums of stoner metal of the 2000's, appropriate for one of the more unappreciatd genres to begin with.


    In 2007 they released yet another winner "How Do You Like The Sound of That?"....shorter, punkier tunes such as "Tough Guy" and "Sickness" rule out, but these guys really DO have  syle all their own while staying withn the confines of the somewhat limiting (but still beloved) genre.

    Thier most recent release, "On the Hunt" is PROBABLY my least favorite, but don't be scared off, it's a good one to listen to also. These guys were not GIANTS of Stoner Rock, but they sure as hell were at the top of the second line, as I said before, I'd compare them to MTHunderpussy, Five Horse Johnson, and Dixie Witch, and that is some pretty good company.

    I guess I should mention that the band is made up of a trio of brothers, guitar/vocalist Jim Ortiz, bassist Gian Ortiz, and drummer Chris Ortiz, I an't really think if another band that was strictly made up of three brothers, although the incredibly little amount about which I care would preclude me from researching it. Good stuff here though, My stoner-rock minions will be loving me again (after Pavement, I'm sure they be ready for some good ol' rock-a-rama!)

    Please please please leave a comment.....let me know what ya think of these lads.....I try to get at least a relatively representative corss section out there of the shit I listen to, sometimes it takes off, sometimes not.....ALWAYS interesting for me though, to see how my tastes rack up against others out there....stoner rockers, rjoice, you ARE going to like this one!

    Since this is only FOUR discs and I had MUCH less trouble with the Pavement post than I anticipated, I'm gonna go ahead and put this one up for ya, and with only 4 links I can practically PROMISE they will be up by morning......I know I said I was going to wait until all the links were ready, but that policy may be reserved for "mega-posts".....by the way, I was a bit disappointed in the numbers for Pavement.....come on guys, it's PAVEMENT! One of the greatest EVER. Oh, well, what are ya gonna do? I hope Amplified Heat goes over well, generally these loud stoner bands do, as they should.....I love this stuff, but I also love me some Pavement, and some Joy Division, and 10000's of other bands......PLEASE leave a comment if you are down with this stuff, or if ya think it sucks as well.......not gonna hurt MY feelings, and we'l all understande each other better!  And, please, it's only music, NOTHING more......please don't judge others by the type of music they listen to......that is stupid (although sometimes somewhat accurate)........we all like what we like, and in this wonderful era of SHARING, we can ALL hear, whatever we like....whenever we like......not like when I was a teen, spending hour after hour searching through crates of used LP's tryingto find those hidden gems (found  a BUNCH of em too).....we often think our youth was the best period in the history of the world, but when it comes to the accessibility of music, the 2010's are to Drew Barrymore what the 1970's(MY era) were to maybe oh, Rosie Odonell.....I know I use her as an example alot in this type of comparison but I think it fits......and once again my obsession/worship of Drew Barymore, that I try so hard to keep so secret, comes through once again!

    So, for whatever the reason, I was thinking about the greatest of all Rock Critics, Lester Bangs today.....and THAT in turn reminded me of a band that he loved (and, as usual, he was 1000% right), Black Pearl.......never ehard of em? That's your problem Chucky, they cranked out some top notch blue-eyed soul/metal that was YEARS ahead of it's time.....even scored a minor hit with "Forget It", frequently comped on anthologies of the era. The featured THREE guitarists (hear em?), Bruce Benson, Geoffry Morris, and Tom Mulcahey, as well as top notch blues belter BB Feildings, and bassist Geri Causey and drummer Jake Oconner.......they released but two albums, the self titled debut which features the great "Forget It", as well as LOTS of other soul/blues/metal shouters , and "Black Pearl Live" a TRUE rarity that yours truly juts happens to have a vinyl copy of, featuring great, lomg, jamming versions of "Goin' Uptown", and "People Get Ready" as well as lots more. These albums are ALL BUT FORGOTTEN TODAY (they are from late 1960's-early 1970's), but if you think you have heard it "all", and you never heard any Black Pearl, check yourself. Lester Bangs was hardly ever wrong about ANYTHING, and he sure as hell wasn't wrong about this. Two fine albums from a long forgotten band.....trust me, this is kick ass rock n roll, play at maximum volume and appreciate......sometimes history just is NOT FAIR, and this was one of those times. Black Pearl were fucking KICK ASSSS!

    Well, today we are going to do something a little (lot) different...a true friend of the blog, Sean Smith by name, sent to me a recording of a band he played in in the early 1980's, The Generics (Actually form MAINE, I once tried to do a "Bands By States" thing, and I don't remember if I ever DID think of anything for Maine).....anyway, he asked me to give it a listen, and give my honest opinion of it......my honest opinion is it sounds like maybe 5000 OTHER bar-bands I've heard, and that is NOT a bad thing. Bar bands fucking rule. These guys do a lot of expected material ("Gloria", "Break On Through", "Steppin' Stone", lots more, the highlight , I think, is a frantic "Shakin All Over".....the musicianship is pretty tight, the vocals, well........well, the musicianship is pretty tight. I've listened to it a couple times today, and can imagine myself passing out at one of their shows at a local club in 1980 if I had ever been to Maine of course......so listen to it if you want, or don't, likely Sean doesn't care and I know for SURE I don't.......so why am I posting it? Here are my reasons. First of all he ASKED me to......if he wants some other folks to hear some shit he was playing 30 years ago, what OTHER option does he have? Secondly, I hope MORE of you guys send me shit like this, old OR new, and we will put you up there for the blogging world to check out......I've already featured my current favorite bar band SAMAX a few times on here, and hopefully gotten them at least a dab of exposure. And, frankly, I would rather post 1000 discs of The Generics than a single disc of whine-babies like Green Day or Corrosion of Conformity who seem only to care if the "meter is running" when you listen to their shit. Music for the joy of making music, anytime at all, we'll put up here, like I HAVE TO say so often, FIGHT THE FUCKING POWER.

    Sean also sent me a "history" of his band, the members, song titles, etc, and I am going to copy/paste it word for word.........Take it away Sean!
     
     
     
    THE GENERICS STORY



    The Generics were a garage rock band I was in from late 1983 until mid-1984. Not as far back

    as the golden age of garage music, nor recent enough to be part of the late-
    80’s revival scene

    (we weren’t
    Thee Generics). There may have been some other American bands (Chesterfield

    Kings, Fuzztones)
    in ‘83-84 with similar ethos, but at the time we weren’t aware of anyone else

    sounding even remotely like we did.

    In late summer 1983, my brother Matt told me there was a jam session going on in his

    classmate Lou’s basement
    . Matt wasn’t much impressed by their guitarist, so he pressed me to

    go over and intrude. I showed up with my Les Paul and Peavey amp, and things seemed to click

    right away. The drummer Andy, only 16, had some truly amazing chops. Larry, the bass player

    we persuaded to join later, was firmly rooted in jazz (I still hold the opinion that jazz players

    make the best rock bassists if you can persuade them to put a lid on their meanderings). Lou

    was the default singer, still at a very early stage of using his voice as an instrument and

    constantly improving over time. He owned the P.A. and we continued to practice at his

    parents’ house
    , until we somehow convinced the high school music department to let us use

    the auditorium stage on weekends.

    The oldest member at 21, I had already played paying gigs for a couple years in a punk/powerpop

    band, The Detours, so I was sort of the rock veteran. I was also now at a point of trying to

    expand my playing beyond my roots, into Cream, early Jeff Beck
    and “Live at Leeds” territory.

    But I had no desire to lose the punk energy level, and for the time being had three accomplices

    who were willing to ignore what was usually expected of a covers band in 1983. No Van Halen,

    no Foreigner, no Eye of the fucking Tiger
    …our sound wasn’t commercially-friendly and that’s

    how we liked it. A lot of Who comparisons were made and that was fine by us. Our music also

    sounded bluesy in a late-
    60’s, menacing hard-rock way. To small-town Maine audiences it

    probably sounded like we stepped out of a time machine.

    Our live set consisted mostly of amped-up covers of 60s classics, except for a few then-current

    AOR hits.
    “Eminence Front”, then on the radio a lot, actually sounded non-Who-like in our

    hands, and had a real proto-grunge sound several years before Dinosaur Jr. Our J.J. Cale-esque

    take on
    The Pretenders’ “My City Was Gone” was the only instance ever of our toning a cover

    down rather than blowing it up. But most of our setlist was comprised of older classic rock, and

    could best be described by three words heard frequently from our audience members
    : “OWW,

    MY EARS!!”
    At the time I was sort of a purist who didn’t want any guitar pedals, even a

    fuzzbox. I preferred instead to turn my amp way up à la Townshend and try for the best

    possible outcome. The other guys had no choice but to compete with my volume level in order

    to be heard.

    So here, 30 years later, presented for the first time are the Generics and their live wall of sound,

    including v
    ersions of “Shakin’ All Over”, “Gloria” and “Steppin’ Stone” that could stomp just

    about any other garage band’s versions
    . Here are feedback-laced blues bashings of Clapton’s

    late-
    hippie anthem “The Core” and CCRs hoary Keep on Chooglin’”, on which I play my own

    invention, the
    breaking glass chord. Our one original, “Generics Jam Blues” (then considered

    unnamable by us, for some reason), was our most technically proficient song. Audiences

    seemed to love it. Also included is our failed first attempt
    at “Johnny B. Goode”, my sole lead

    vocal turn that, once we worked it out, allowed me on a couple of memorable occasions to preenact

    the
    famous scene in “Back to the Future” two years before anyone heard of Marty McFly.

    Like I said, we had a time machine.

    Please note: these tracks
    aren’t sequenced like a modern CD, but more like a traditional album.

    Y
    ou won’t necessarily hear the best songs first, but the music flows better as a whole.

    I make no claims for
    The Generics’ significance in rock history (I know we really had none) but I

    can safely say we were anything
    but generic. We weren’t about money and we definitely

    weren’t afraid to take chances.
    Our audiences were incredibly open-minded and enthusiastic.

    Special thanks to all those kids who got drunk at our shows and woke up the next day with

    splitting earaches.

    I REALLY want to know what you guys think of this. I'd LOVE to amature, bar bands, new and old, on this blog, LOVE to, listening to that stuff is REAL LIFE, listening to blowhards like Corrosion of Conformity is phony, ANTI-rock n roll.......and we know, ROCK N ROLL is FOR REAL

    I have no artwork for this post, so I will simply do what I ususally do in such a situation and put a series of hot-ass bitches out there for your (mostly MY) pleasure!

  • 01/26/13--13:53: The best Slo Burn post ever
  • At least "tied" for the "best, because they were short lived and put out only this "album", which in fact is an EP coupled with some other demo tracks......the thing is I always REALLY liked it. Just listened to it again today, and to me it's kind of an unappreciated stoner classic. Singer John Garcia, guitarist Chris Hale, bassist Damon Garrison, and drummer Brady Houghton made out the lineup, and the sound is VERY Kyuss-like, which is perhaps why some don't like the album (it's VERY VERY Kyuss like!).....they released the four-track EP "Amusing the Amazing" in 1996, and later editions of it turned up with the five tracks added on from their earlier demo.....I've never heard a live recording, I hear that some do exist, and I'd LOVE to hear one if anyone has one. Anyway, Garcia broke up the band and went on to sing with two other bands whom I have featured on the blog before, Unida and Hermano, I think this ranks somewhere in that basic chain......for being a pieced together "album", it flows pretty well, and rocks from top to bottom. You're going to like it if you like Kyuss, Unida, Hermano, and all the usual suspects. See ya tomorrow!

  • 01/27/13--14:16: A few laughs
  • So, to break up the somber and somewhat depressing mood that I have been in of late, let's try to lighten the mood with some music that I find simply hilarious.....nothing "classic" here today, but if you don't take music TOO SERIOUSLY (many do), you might find something here to put a brief smile, at least, upon your face.

    First up is NOT exactly what I was looking for, I was actually looking for "Leave Stockholm" by Gabba, a positively wonderful set of Abba tunes done Ramones-style.....I KNOW I have it here somewhere, when I find it I WILL put it up, it's a "must-hear", trust me......but, settling for maybe second best, we have The Ramouns also great "Rockaway Beachboys", in which tunes such as "Fun Fun Fun" "Surfin Safari" and "Help Me Rhonda" get Ramones-style workover. It's a funny joke, once......Gabba is better, I swear I need to find it.

    OK, next up I have a 1994 album entitled "Morning Wood" from the Rugburns.....this is not an especially good album, not even that funny when taken as a whole (Titling a song "My Carphone's on the Pill" may qualify as trying just a bit too hard),,,,,the thing is, it contains THE single from the summer of 1994, the absolutley classic "Me and Eddie Vedder"......."Houses of the Holy.....was an album by Led Zep-e-linnn.....I bought it on 8-track, not on CD......fades out in the middle, the way an 8 tracks s'pposed ta......"if you were anywhere near a radio that could bring in WOXY (Ohio) in summer 1994, you couldn't help but get sick of it, but it is hilarious......name checking also Tom Wolfe, The Brady Bunch, John Bonham's death ("Bonzo kicks ass on it.....then he chokes on his vomit....the way a rock stars s'pposed to die"........) If you've never heard this, almost 20 years later it still brings a laugh, in July 1994 I would have rather taken a bullet than hear it again.

    Next we have another disc that is all about a SINGLE classic hilarious track....Dynamite Hack's "Superfast" is not a great album by any means, but DO NOT DIE before hearing their hilarious white-bread version of "Boyz-N-The-Hood", literally one of the funniest singles I have ever heard.

    OK, lets wrap this up with a disc from England's The Rotters.....they churned out some fairly pedestrian goof-ball punk in the early 1980's (evidently they are still at it).....I have included here the album "Wrench to the Nuts", with it's song titles such as "My Penis Hurts" and "Please Don't Probe Me with the Butt Scope Doctor", but the reason I'm including this one is the bonus single I'm attaching to the album, the legendary "Sit on My Face Stevie Nicks", which if I remember got Lindsay Buckingham pissed off enough to threaten legal action and get the track pulled (Or something, don't feel like looking up the specifics)

    Nothing life changing here, but just felt like putting some humor up there today......pleaes comment on these if they are new to you, or if you fond memories of any of them.

    Well, one thing you will hardly EVER find me putting on this blog is garage rock, particularly of the 1960's, USA variety.......but this is a fairly obscure two disc set from We the People, who, in seriousness, were prominently featured in the Garage Greats series, and contains what I would guess to be ever note they ever recorded......they are best known of coure for their often comped "Mirror of Your Mind", also some more minor singles such as "My Brother the Man", but the thing is, this is a remarkably listenable collection.......I'd post it just for the rarity value, but there is some really good stuff on here, they dabble in the usual punk and psych sounds of the era ("St. John's Shop" is a decent example of the latter), and, unlike so many similar comps of bands such as this it is NOT loaded with lame cover versions of Rolling Stones or Cream (or whomever) songs......two discs (40 tracks) is a BUNCH, I'm a warning ya, but you will never, ever EVER have to search out ANYTHING by We the People EVER again. Now there is ONE LESS thing you can worry about! I gather, at times they were also known as The Offbeats, the Trademarks, and the Nonchalants, and their stuff under THESE monikers are included here as well......this ain't no half-hearted effort here!

    DISC 1-01 Everything Will Be ALright/02 Drivin' Me Out of My Mind/03 My Brother the Man/04 Mirror of Your Mind/05 (You Are) the Color of Love/06 She Does Everything For Me/07 He Doesn't Go About It Right/08 You Burn Me Up and Down/09 Nothing Like a Visison/10 Proceed With Caution/11 By the Rule/12 Look at the Girls (ver. 1)/13 Love is a Beautiul THing/14 Double Trouble/15 Don't Say You Love Me Too/16 St. John's Shop (version 1)/17 Love Wears Black/18 Beginning of the End/19 The Day She Dies/20 There's Gonna Be a Storm

    Zippyshare has been behaving themsleves a BIT more of late, I still have my issues but am confident that I will have these two links up yet tonight......hopefully........I hope this isn't overkill in light of the recent Garage Greats set, but I was looking through the shelves today and stumbled upon this, and I really do think it's at least FAIRLY rare, and is also quite interesting!
