Maybe I'll keep this title for Cliff's submissions, or maybe I won't, ya never know......anyway, I haven't even LOOKED, much less listened to Cliff's latest masterpiece, I just know you reggae fans GOTTA love it.......with the new job etc, I MIGHT rely on guest posters even more than in the past, BUT I hope to continue to post my own stuff as well.........ya never know. I will prolly but up something of my own tomorrow (Thursday), Anyway, I shall continue to submit guest posts from anyone who sends them, LONG STANDING RULE: ANYTHING GOES HERE.......I might slow down for a LITTLE BIT as I acclimate to new job, etc, but I assure you the blog will live........might be as good a time as ANY to thank (again) Cliff, Apantabapanta, Dave Sez (MIA?), Brian, Sean, Mr Dave, Jonder, AndieJames, and EVERYONE ELSE who helps to at least TRY to keep this blog SOMEWHAT unique/different.........couldn't POSSIBLY do this without you guys, you are the greatest.....PLEASE just give me a week or to to get acclimated to my new job and I will start putting up stuff on a "semi"-regular basis..........if you need a fix of "offbeat" stuff,please check Brian's blog Rustbeltoutpost, he has a bizarre collection and posts BOMB shit on an almost daily basis!
Track Listing: 1. Real Rock – Sound Dimension 2. Feel Like Jumping – Marcia Griffiths 3. Bobby Bobylon – Freddie McGregor 4. Skylarking – Horace Andy 5. Village Soul – Lennie Hibbert
6. Greedy G – Brentford All Stars 7. Truth & Rights – Johnny Osbourne 8. Surfin – Ernest Ranglin

I am so lucky that I have a steady supply of guest posts (sorry guys, I'll take Nikki Corvette over ANY of you, ANY TIME), I havene't had to do much of late since the Yo La Tengo epic, I've been starting a new job, trying to getmy son's college visits organized, dealing with the fallout from my son's breakup with his girlfriend, and also, early Friday morning, I took a fall and bruised my ribs pretty bad.........and, of course, if was FRIDAY, so the doc wasn't in to perscribe me something to make a fall worthwhile........I've got lots of posts on the back burner, but gimme a LITTLE time to get into the groove with my new job, and things will get back to normal.......Brian has submitted some more GREAT stuff, of course, you can always find his stuff at rustbeltoutpost.com, or download it from here, I personally don't care a lick.......anyways, Brian is a LOT more enthusiastic about this stuff than myself of late, prolly cause of the new job and etc, but I hope you guys dig the guest stuff while I be going through my lifestyle changes and stuff.......I think for TOMORROW I have another post from Apantabapanta, which means ANOTHER day that I don't have to do much except for copy/paste, but that is cool, the guest contributors are more enthusiastic, more energetic, more knowledgeable (in thier specialized fields), and (matter of opinion), more entertaining/interesting/informative than myself. Such is life.
OK, here is what Brian requests I give a bump to today........first we have some comedy recordings, which I will comment on ("Scott") as needed, as I will with anything anyone submits:
(Scott): Okay, let's be honest, I have at the very least always been honest, NEVER have I heard of anyone in this "Mystery Comedy Post"......in general, when Brian (who is a recorded comedy expert) sends me stuff it's something I've heard before and have some kinda idea about, (Firesign, Lenny Bruce, Pryor, Carlin, etc), but these folks I have never heard of.......does that say something about ME? Well, perhaps, but I really couldn't care less.......as I've said 1,000,000 times here, ANYTHING goes on this site, and I mean ANYTHING.
Mystery Comedy Post- Three Smartasses
Over this July 4th holiday weekend, i have guest material from both Brian and Apantanbapanta, both
of which you will get in the next couple of days, but, in the wake of starting the new job and such, I thought it might be semi-important that I compose something of my own, rather than allow this blog to be "taken over' (as great as they are) by the guest posters....
OK.....as I said, I'm just starting a new job....as such the blog takes something of a back burner, but not TOO much, I STILL do love you all, and will Not stop doing what I do.....I love to share MY music with the world, and also the music my FRIENDS have, with the world......I am just slowing down a TOUCH, as I DSO need to concentrate my efforts on the new job, just a BIT, I am SURE you understand, but also make sure you know this: BigScott62 is going NOWHERE......I may post less frequently, my format might change a tiny bit, but I LOVE MY FOLLOWERS and will (I SWEAR) NEVER abandon you.......in the next few weeks you will see, I have a couplem "mega-posts" in the works, but as for tonight, let me throw out to you a couple of random albums that you may not alread have in your stash..........I'm here for THAT reason too, ya know, I could be for another ten years and NEVER share ALL of the stuff I hve on CD with ya......that ain't the point........I love me some rock n roll, in ALL it's forms, and I try my damndest to share a bit of this and of a dab of that with YOU......so, with a long weekend ahead of us (I can do a thing or two with THAT), let me present a couple of teasers for ya, a few albums that ya mmay not have heard before that I can share with ya.......and if ya by some chance liked that Yo La Tengo mega-post, stick around, I have a few more of those MEGA things in the works, and I'd hate for ya to miss em.....the bottom line is I gotta get that kid o mne through college, thus;y, I gotta go back to work, but I DO love doing this here thing, and if you are with me, great, if not, sorry........here's what I have for ya tonight, selected purely at random:
OK, I pondered it and figured it was about I unleashed all of my classic STRANGLERS shit on ya......a favorite of mine? well in a way, yes, as they remind my a lot of the Doors and MUCH MORE SPECIFICALLY, Sean Boniwell's Music Machine, who were about 30 years ahead of thier time, and, YES, I am saying the Stranglers were as well.......great band, GREAT band, I have a lota material here, might take me the better part of the week to get it all to ya, but TRUST ME it will be worth it......this band had it all.......they rocked like a mofo, they were offensive as fuck ( a GOOD thing, check "Peaches on the Beaches' or "Bring on the Nublies") and their amazing musical struture that recalled both the aforementioned Doors and Music Machone are NOTHING to be ashamed of, trust me........I have a LOT of this stuff, if you have anything to contribute, RIGHT NOW is the time, as we all know this is one of the best bands the Lord ever placed on the planet for our pleasure!
The catalogue is extensive, let's starat out simply, with their original studio albums, I guess that is the
easiest way to do it for the novices in the crowd........(for you newbs, if you only one ONE, please sample "IV Norvegicus Natticus", that would be my personal opinion, leastways.....
NO MORE HEROES (1977)-01 I feel Like a Wog/02 Bitching/03 Dead Ringer/04 Dagenham Dave/05 Bring On the Nubliels/06 Something Better Change/07 No More Heroes/08 Peasant in the Big Shitty/09 Burning Up TIme/10 English Towns/11 School Mam/12 Straighten Out/13 Five Minutes/14 Rok it to the Moon
IV RATTUS NORVEGICUS (1977)-01 Sometimes.02 Goodbye Tolouse/03 London Lady/04 Princess of the Streets/05 Hanging Around/06 Peaches/07 (Get a) Grip (On Yourself)/08 Ugly/09 Down In the sewer/10 Choosey Susie/11 Go Buddy Go/12 Peasant in the Big Shitty (Live)

THE CHRONICLES OF VLADIMIR (1980)-01 Vladimir and Olga/02 Vladimir and Sergei/03 Vladmimir and the Beast )Part III)/04 Vladimir Goes to Havannah/05 Viva Vlad!/06 Vladimir and the Pearl
OK, that'll do it for tonight........in the past I would have given ya 20 albums instead of 5, but things
are changing........these are five GREAT alums, (especially "Rattus" and "Heroes"), but this was one underappreciated band, and i aim to spend the rest of the week tributing them and ALL of thier great stuff I have.......PLEASE let me know how you feel about this retro-greatness, I love these albums (always did), if you do/did too, al least give a shout out, if they are new to ya, well, you DO have some catching up to do, BUT, in either case, I'll just say this......this was a great band......not "good" , GREAT.......for a variety of reasons they are not remembered that well today, but TRUST ME they were great, as we will both spending the rest of the week reminiscing over their greatness.....but, trust me, THESE albums, newb, are too great for MY commentary.
If you are a Strtanglers fan, pay attention the next week or so, I'll post when I can pst, but i DO have a ton of thier fantasticv music.....this goes for you as well if they are new to ya......they were a great band, always willing to take a chance, ominous, creepy, but always rocking........I have a LOT of thier stuff, and this post will reach Yo La Tengo-ish proportions.....NOTHING wrong with that IMO, as this was on of the great (and SERIOUSLY underappreciated) bands of the important era......it was an incredibly IMPORTANT era, and the Stranglers would hve been mega-stars (well MAYBE) at nearly any other point in history.......anyway, yourself for a BUNCH of thier work, coz i happen to have a BUNC!
So, how did you like the beginning of the the Stranglers epic? Should be a good one, I am thinking, I
have some guest material from Brian and Apantabapanta which I'll get up tomorrow, taking a small break in the Stranglers thing, but variety is, of course, the life of spice.
So for tonight lets pick up where we left off.......our first album tonight is the first of the originals (good ones) that were released AFTER the classics (see yesterday)......1981's "The Gosple According to the Meninblack" was a VERY ambitious conceptual effort which doesn't exactly always work, despite, taken as less than a sum of its parts, still has some good Stranglers stuff on it .....It's recommended, and is a smooth transition into the 80's for the band.
"La Folie" was issued in 1981 as well, they were REALLY cranking out the music at this time......pretty fair album, although if not a Stranglers fan you MAY not care for it, procede with caution (i DO like it)......in 1982 they released "Feline", which, by thier own standards is no classic, BUT we are not highlighting ONLY the classic stuff, but ALL of the Stranglers material I have accumulated......
This is a band that, while trying new things never deviated from their original concept,if you get what I mean.......1984's "Aural Sculpture" was a good, listenable album as well, presented here in a fine, 2001 deluxe edition release with a lot of bonus material.
Back tomorrow with some guest material, and also hopefully a wrap up of the Stranglers studio career.......they released a few more albums and we may as well get to them, before we get into the rarities and the like.........
Please tell a brother what you think!
So the hits just keep on comin..........remember, next post (hopefully tomorrow) will be some guest material (better than my stuff anyway), and then back to the Stranglers, LOTS of live stuff, rarities, EP's, and lots of other stuff you can't live without!
Well, I hope the 4th of July weekend finds you and your family well, I thought it was a kick that I got Friday off WITH PAY after just one week (4 days) of starting my new job! Anyway, I've been doing some Stranglers stuff the past few days, get to a bit more of THAT later, but for right now, I know that Brian has been working on this project for some time and labor that extensive deserves favour:
Of coursre Brian's work is also found on rustbeltoutpost, makes neither of a us a difference from which you utilize. Anyway, without further ado, here's Brian's latest section of his BIG project:
(Scott): I love international (non-English language) rock, and although this doesn't deal exclusively with rock, it runs the gammut on some different and VERY obscure stuff......this is the second part (the first was published earlier), and I must say it is quite impressive.This focusses on Thailand (the second "tour" there), and Burma......redendant for ME to describe them, Brian is the expert, so take it away, sir.......
Southeast Asian Tour #2 - Thailand Part 2 and Burma
From 1990, "10" was the final album the band released, prior to the departure of founding member
Hugh Cornwell. People share mixed emotions on it, I am not that fond of it (they cover "96 Tears" and "All Day and All of the Night") both really fine efforts, but the band is sounding tired.......not a worthless record by any means, "Sweet Smell of Success" is a good one, and at least this is a loaded, bonus edition CD version with a lot of extra tracks.
New members Paul Roberts and John Ellis take over on "Stranglers in the Night".....I like it, personally, it harkens back to thier rough-edged, Music-Machine influenced greatness....often a major participant leaving is a death knell, but in this case, it seemed to offer the band a bbit of breathing room. "Heaven and Hell", "Sugar Bullets", and "Brainbox" all work fine for me, a surprisingly good and listenable album.
"About Time" came out in 1995, andd, reminded me more of what I thought "Stranglers in the Night" may sound like......the horns return, electric violins, is it "interesting"? well, no, not terrible, nor does it rock especially......however, I'm sure it has its fans, here is is for any of you Strangler junkies!
"Written in Red", I think, is kind of a mess as well, it appaers in several versions with live numbers and the like, this version doesn't have much to recommend it, save perhaps "In Heaven She Walks", which really IS a good one.
ALL bands (well, NEARLY) Do reach this point at some time.........often, if I have the maerial, it's good that we can "document" the fall as well as the rise.
in 2004 (2004!) the resurfaced with a new strummer, Baz Warne, and released "Norfolk Coast", it's not NEARLY as awful as I thought it would be.......the title track is realy good, and "Tucker's Grave" is a winner as well........the traditional Stranglers swirling keyboards are FINALLY back up frnt where they belong. No classic, but a good one, worth a download anyway.
I found on the bay something called "Suite XVI".......gotta say, never heard anything on it, and don't REALLY want to......this ship has sailed. It's here for you though......and, aparently, they released another album, subsequently, "Giants", which was not available, I don't have, andI guess we will have to live without.....
No matter you have a full picture pretty much of the once-great Stranglers, this will wrap up the studio albums, but I have a LOT of other stuff coming from their glory days. Maybe some even later tonight.
Do you enjoy the Mega-post format? I do, as long as it doesn;t become permanent.....would be too
restrictive for me, you know I GOTTA be free form.........I've "done" many of the greas in :mega" format, but if there is someone else, please suggest.

This bout wraps up the Stranglers stuff, as per thier studio efforts.....don't despair, they were a fave of mine for quite a while, so I'm not gonna leave you hanging.......LOTS of more stuff any of you Stranglers-junkies will froth over.......BUT I am going to switch gears once again, REALLY quickly, from my buddy from Greece, ApantaBapanta, who continueally works on the "Encyclopedia of Disbanded Rock Bands".......might take him a while, and he could CERTAINLY use some help (Sorry, I WISH I had the time) , but he'd done a fine job up until now, and his posts are just pehnominal........informative, and with the right links to get you SOLID background information. What Apanta does here is a little different than what others might do, and I salute him bug time, for being an ORIGINAL, as well as a great and knowledgeable guest-poster to this blog, one who is welcome here, ANY time he wishes, yes, a favorite contributor of mine (OK, you ALL are favorite contributors of mine!)
(Scott): As I've said before thi guy go all out to expand the bases of our musical knowledge, selecting
defunct rock bands of various genres, linking to Wikipedia for complete (such as it is) info on the bands, followed by generally a link to a classic album or a compilation from the band in question,,,,,,sometimes it's hard to fit these in BUT DO NOT EVER FORGET.......DAMN NEAR ANYTHING GOES HERE, as log as YOU GUYS benefit something from it.....and I think you will from at least some (if not al), of his submisssions this week.
OK, this weeks submission from Apantabapanta are as follows:
a) The idea is to know the music of the bands all around the world that their music style is
close to – Pop / Rock-Folk / Rock-New / Wave-Punk / Rock-Hard / Rock-Prog / Rock
b) I’ll try to post 5 bands every week.
c) Some bands have been reformed.
d) If anyone like this idea and have something to post please do.
e) Volunteers needed for finding & posting bands starting from letter ‘’B’’.
f) If you play the songs with Windows Media Player you will see info about the bands.

OK, hope like hell you've been enjoying the Stranglers greatness, as promissed there is quite abit
more to come, lets just see how bad ya REALLY want it !!!!!!!!
Let's begin with an unusual 9" disc, evidently given away for free to fans of the band,,,,,,,hey, don't quibble......three fine tracks ("Tits", "Walk On By", and "Mean to Me") are al great, I wish I would have tripped over one f these great bands in 1993 or so.......
The also released a fine EP, "Don't Bring harry", has some good stuff, not available elsewhere.....there are English and French versions both of the title cluster, but in betweeem there are semi-Stranglers classics such sa "Crabs" and "In the Shadows"......this is a worthwile EP, I'd appreciate yur givin it a chance
Next a 2-sided single from 1982, nothing spectacular, except, there's a special 12" mix of :Midnight Summers", as well as multiple versions of "Vladimir and Olga"......
The "Paradise" single has some good stuff on it as well, no undiscovered classics, but three Stranglers tracks with which you MAY feel are essential (I don't really), but ya try to put ALL yer cards on the table.
Another 12' Single is 1984's "Let Me Down Easy".......three intruging tracks (one an instrumental) as I continue to TRY to get you your radiohead FIX, I know that by now they are considered a litle dated, but WHEN DID I EVER CARE ABOUT THAT? Nope, not my mindset, I am just trying tonight to to HELP these people with the disabilites........PLEASE support the discs that are posted in honor of some disabled soldier or something, lets continue, through small steps, to try to make the world something of a beter olace on which we can ALL Live
The next mega-single (as best as I can determine, is 1984's "Skin Deep", with a tremendous extended version of the title track here......I'd LOVE to show up and play catch with them at one of thier preactices, but that;s just that..........I
Thier classic reworking of "96 Tears" gets a lot of lve, no need to worry,,,,this was put together by
my cousin Eric, also a military man .....there are also a couple more tracks here that are worthwhile
it's the STRANGLERS for God Sake.....you know NOW, without hearing if this is for you,but lemme tell ya......this is yet another version of that oft-covered clasic, and the rest of the shit here is great as well.......
Last One I got for ya is "Sweet Smell of Success".....I THINK this gives us all the Stranglers non-lp stuff, I could be wrong.......anyway, look for some LIVE stuff tomorrow (or next time I post)!)

Kay, these are kinda sorta rare, hope you appreciate em.....as I said, next up is LIVE material hopefull tomorrow.......until then enjoy the remainder of your weekend
And, yes, the Stranglers will be back.......when people send me stuf, though, I am anxious to post it as
I am a "True' TEAM PLAYER......first let me point out that the great Cliff (Reggae man) is having some health issues, lets' all say a prayer for him that he gets well quickly, he's a FINE contricutor to this blog, and I hope he recovers 100%.........hope all you gys agree with me, too...
What we DO have tonight is Part 1 of a spectacular posting from our new great contributor Jonder......he is planning on sharing ALL of his great Duke Spirit materieal with us (sounds GREAT to me), and he has told me of a few other bands he'd like to feature......THAT is how I want this to work, with EVERYONE contributing, so without further ado, here is Jonder, with part ONE of his MEGA-Duke Spirit post.......who knows when the next part will be, it'll probably alternate between his and the rest of my Mega-Stranglers.......and, what the hell is so wrong with THAT?
OK, the skinny on my new job is as follows....I work 4-10 hour days AS WELL as having a 3 hour round trip drive each day........knew that going in, not a big thing....but I DO want to continue the blof, I have so mnay FANTASTIC guest contributors that you might not likely know I've slacked off until I get laid off next winter......Jonder's Duke Spirit stuff has been great thusfar, and I hope he continues to contribute after he completes that project, Brian, as always, has a TON of unusual stuff he'd like me to bump, Cliff has had some health issues, praying he'll be fine and back soon, and of course, we have Apantabapanta and others.......I also aim to talk to Jose in the next few days about a bad-ass post that was on his blog that I'd like to share.
THIS BLOG IS GOING NOWHERE.....it may slow down, it may rely more on outside contributors, it may be 180 degrees different than what it ONCE was, but goddamnit, I LIKE doing it, and I LOVE all my readers, and I am NOT going to stop.......check the stuff I put up over my three day weekend, we should wrap up the Stranglers as well as some more cool stuff......I AM NOT GOING TO BAIL ON YOU, trust me......some of you guys have been VERY loyal/faithful to me, and i am NOT ABOUT to forget about that.........this blog is HERE TO STAY, until some wank-ass shits it down. TRUST ME, check every few hours Fri/Sat/Sun this week, you'll see lots of good stuff, both from ME and from the rest of my fabulous team, to whom I owe and eternal gratitude. DAMNIT, GREOWING BORED FOR A LIVING is going to be around for a LONG, LONG while yet........if you don't like that, SORRY ABOUT YOUR FUCKING LUCK frankly.
OK, let us investigate some live Stranglers.. I never got to see them live, certainly wish I had, as they were a "punk" band before it was even fashionable, not to mention thier fantastic musci, influenced by the dorrs and (especially) Music Machine was incredible.......the live music I present here is badass, likely will have to split it into two parts, but there is some wonderful stuff here.
The earliest I have in my stash is "1977 Live at the Hope & Anchor".........primitive set, releasead LONG before the Stranglers were "the Stranglers", and there is some great music here, early versions of "Tits" and "No More Heroes" set the pace, this is one fans of the band will NOT want to miss.
1979's "Live X Cert" is a dandy as well, with a fine early version of "Grip", a rocking "Go Buddy Go", and plenty of fine early versions of many of thier greatest works........great album here, also.
Next up we have a very good (also odd) one, "The Stranglers and Friends Live In Concert"........lots of folks help out here, Robert Fripp, Ian Dury, Larry Wallis, Toyah Wilcox and others.....they take on standard Stranglers numbers and breathe new life into them, I'd recommend against missing the fab version of "Peaches" in which they get help from Ian Dury, Wilko Johnson, Davey Payne, John Turnball, & Toyah Wilcox........just sayin, my fave Stranglers track gets a TOTAL makeover.....
"1981 Apollo Revisited" is a stellar set as well, catching the band just about at their peak.....they run through a set of some of thier best stuff, great versions of "Bring On the Nubiles", "Golden Brown", "Meninblack", and lots more........run, don't walk.
I'll put up some more live stuff tomorrow, tonight I'll wrap up with 1986's "Browned, Seasoned, and Thickened".......a good enough set, though catching the band a bit past thier peak, but still, we can always use another great version of "Golden Brown" or "No More Heroes"........one of the great bands of the 1980's (and 70's), perhaps a bit underappreciated as a live act, hopefuly this post and tomorrows will help to straighten out this injustice! Remember, tomorrow (Friday) MORE live Stranglers PLUS some great guest material! Don't miss, my children!

REMEMEBER NOW, for a while, this blog is gonna be a Thursday Night-Sunday kinda thing.......hopw that is OK with everyone.......for the next few days, still got PLENTY of Stranglers material to share, and Brian has a BIG bunch of stuff he wants me to give a boost to.......so check back frequently over the weekend......i WISH I could maintian the everyday pace, but I just can't see it for now.........NOT that I love ya any less, I'm sure you understaned!
So, by 1988, the Stranglers had become what they were going to become, and looking to go in
various directions......for example, THIS live LP("ALl Live And All of the Night") has a HORN SECTION (yes, really) on it, not my favorite thing, but different at least.......Stranglers fans will like the unique factor, lotta good stuff here, anyway (note: I DO NOT have the extended, bonus version with extra tracks, if you do, please help out?
Now, MUCH more of interest to me is "The Early Years Live, '74-'76".....tremendously sloppy early versions of thier classics, from various venues/dates, a couple tracks get doubled ("Grip" and "Go Buddy Go"), but still fine to hear these gems, and ALWAYS great to find another version of "Peaches", which will ALWAYS be MY fave!
1993's "Saturday Night Sunday Morning" is significant in that it is the last known recorded show featuring Hugh Cornwell, not bad, "Goldne Brown", "No More Heroes", "96 Tears"......(where's "peaches?""where's "Grip"?).......anyway, worthwhile, any Stranglers fan is gonna want this as well.
I also seem to have a copy of a 1985 recording "Death and Night and Blood", a good run down of most of thier classic material, don't, honestly, recall listening to it to be honest, but it's the Stranglers running through some of their best material, when they were right near their peak......
OK, couple of bootlegs as well.........earliest being a 1980 Toronto show, gets pretty frantic with fine versions of "Bring on the Nublies", "Boroque Borddello", and a fine "I feel Like a Wog", the entire set magnificently shows off thte Stranglers sleazy charm.
I have a London show from 1984 (unsure of date or venue), they really put out on this one as well, right up to the fabulous encore of "European Female" and (YES!) "Peaches"
Last one I have for now is a 1985 Zurich set, it gets pretty reaaved up as well, most of their early greatas are here (except, oddly, "Grip"), but by now you have the idea......I have a buncha Stranglers sttuff, if they were/are your "thing" eat harty!
Morse Stranglers stuff coming, some comps with maybe a rarity or two, also some solo work from
some of the members......stay tuned, we'll have some good guest material in the next couple days too.

As always, lemme know whatcha think......lotta material here, and a lot more to come from one of my favorite bands in high school/college..........opinions, por favor?
Fucl, yeah not? I have been fucking around with this Stranglers thing for the past month or so, and I
WILL finish is, but my GUEST POSTERS are my life blood, they keep this blog alive.......tonight , let us listen to more to the WONDERFUL Duke Spirit material shared by the great Jonder......this is a load of B-Sides and the like, you are not likely to find this on some other blog, so if ya want it, here it is, if ya don't, such is life.........
Basically, here is an e-mail sent to me by Jonder, (a HUGE Duke Spirit fan, I am one now as well), please read the text he sends , and PLEASE check out the fine music he submits as well.......I hope after he is done with his Duke Spirit submissions he continues to send us music, THIS IS HOW I WANT this bl;og to work, especially with myself working again.........check these out, they are FABULOUS, tomorrow, I will have some more of Brian's great stuff that he wishese me to help to share with all of ya!........ANYWAY, this is some not only GREAT, but RARE Duke spirit material, please don't miss out on this once-in-a-life-time chance!

Myself and Brian's relationship is a strange one, I will say upfront.......he had a blog of his own, awhile back, that had very little traffic.......after he and I became friends, I would, at his request, publish his stuff on my more "established" blog, in an attempt to get him "out there"......we hit a snag a while back as he is an expert on recorded comedy (I am NOT), which evidently is monitored more closely than music (why? DO NOT ASK ME).......anyway, Brian still operates a great blog, Rustbeltoutpost, on which he features some GREAT eccentric stuff......as my 53 year old ass has recently had to go back to that "work" place, I am thrilled that Brian, along with my other "team" members continue to assist with submitting stuff to this site, keeping it alive and etc..........thanks, and I hope I hope I forget no one, to Brian, Jonder, Cliff, DaveSez, MrDave, Jose, and (sorry if I forgot you I am drunk)......this blog I HOPE is different than the others, it is REALLY about SHARING, NOT about being an arrogant ass (such as some other blogs) that seem to exist sorely for the purpose of purposing to YOU that they have more music than YOU do........that's not WE are about here.
OK, HERE is some of my buddy (and fellow BUCKEYE)'s latest posts, you can check them out HERE or at HIS site (rustbeltoutpost)........matters not a BIT to me, nor, I think, to him, WHERE you the stuff from, just so you GET IT, what we are trying to do is SHARE the stuff we have, so EVERYONE can enjoy the great music that we have in our stashes.........tomorrow, hopifully, I will get back on my Stranglers "Mega" post, there is a good bit of material still there to share, but at the same time, I don't want to let my homies down.............so, check for tomorrow for some more Stranglers, if you've been digging it......for NOW, take it away Brian, I am GRATEFUL that you have become a "team member" and whether or not I have told you so, a DAMNED valuable one.......rule #1 is WE ARE ALL ON THE SAME TEAM HERE.......please, NO ONE, EVER forget that!\
(SCOTT): First up from the Brian collection is this wonderful album from Negative Trend.......I won't go into it much as I am an OLD TIME punk-guy, but you don't wanna miss this, let us just say....
Three Albums By Sonny Sharrock
(SCOTT) OK, next up we have something whcih was unfamiliar to ME ( amazing, right?)...."The Low Road: by the Beasts of Bourbon" (ca 1991)........this is a great album, PERIOD, if you need to know details etc, LOOK EM UP , after all, this is not an exclusive to MY blog..........BUT lemme tell ya, THIS is a GREAT album, an unknown classic, JUMP, NOW!
The Beasts Of Bourbon - The Low Road
Just tellin ya the new job has cha aged things, but we are stil chill. Get it ?
OK, in my drunken way, I stated last night that the new job is going to change things (blog-wise) as I
simply don't have the time to invest (this fall/winter I will be laid off, and I will OVERWHELM ya trust me).....for now, I am basically relying on guest submissions, and HOPING to put up an "original" post this weekend (BigGrant97 is having some of his buds over tomorrow night, thusly me and BigCarla66 are heading off for the casino for a night of gamblin' and lovin', which of course COULD BE the same thing).........Anyway, I have some stuff submitted from the rest of the world that I wish to share, I am going to hold up on Brian's stuff until Saturday because (1) he is my #1 protege, and (2) because he has so much fab stuff that burying it in a post like this might not do it fully justice.....anyeay, there is PLENTY of stuff of interest I can shae with ya tonight......
OK, first (I am bragging and nothing more), I got another email today from Nikki Corvette, was hoping she wanted to have sex with me, but ALMOST as good, she tole me that if I send her my USA mailing address, she would send me a "Gorvette" CD, a colaboration between Nikki and the Gore Gore Girls, I can hardly wait to hear it, I would just like to thank people like Nikki and Lennon Murphy for being REAL people, people one can REALLY TALK TO AS FRIENDS........it's a wonderful thing that there are such great people in our world (I am NOT one of them)........the day Nikki sends me that disc, it will be shared on this site, beleive me.......
http://yup-yup-mark.blogspot.com/search/label/JamNo. I dont't really have time, to be honest, to check this, but if it is legit, he claims that most of the links are still active, and if the are , that would be a WONDERFUL thing for the sharing community.......
the main thing we wish to focus on this morning (it is 1:26 AM here) is the fine work of Jonder, whom has become a great semi-regularly contributor....I think I will just copy his email verbatum rather than elaborate, he seems to be the world's greatest fan of The Duke Spirit, which, trust me, is not such a bad thing, this is a great overlooked band.....PLEASE comment, share, listen, whatever, as Jonder says he will continue to share with us, and it seems, at least to me, that he loikes some of the "on the fringe" stuff that I myself enjoy........so let's keep him in the mood to contribute, as well as Brian, Apantabapanta, Dave Sez, and of course Cliff (get well soon Cliff, your health is about 1000,000 times more imprtant than this blog, even though your contributions are amazing and very popular)
OK, here is Jonder's review of his latest Duke Spirit contribution, he says he has a couple more, and I
hope he comes through with them.....this blog is for "us", it is NOT for the folks who are looking for that elusive Foreigner boot......not that there's anything WRONG with that, but I have TRIED to operate on the EDGE, on the PEOPLE'S edge, and that is how I plan to continue, regardless as to whether I ahve to spend so much of my time commuting, working, etc.......THIS BLOG WILL REMAIN, I LIKE doing it, it's just that the "daily" posts are going to have to turn into more like "weekend" posts.......sorry, but I got a kid heading to college next year, and that is a bit more important than YOU hosers, I'm sure you can understand THAT, right? On the other hand, I will (Saturday or Sunday) boost a bunch of Brian's fab shares, and if I get time I just may get the rest of my Stranglers stuff posted......all good, still LOVE YOU ALL, just a bit of a lifestyle change....I know the REAL followers of the blog will stick with me, and as ALWAYS I welcome/encourage GUEST CONTRIBUTORS, whom, until my own winter layoff, will probably be the life saver of this blog, for beter or for worse........
(Scott): Fantastic share Jonder, just incredible.....I will do my best to get the link you requested to you this weekend, the covers of the Love tracks are just too amazing.......thanks for your work, and as I said, I will try to send you a link for the WOXY set in the next couple of days, THANKS!
Well, first of all, here is an email from Mark Lee, who seems to run some sort of Jam bootlegs blog.....mind you I haven't checked it out, (if someone does please report back), here's the email & the link.....
Hi, I'm Mark
NOTE: THERE IS GONNA BE A HUGE CARLIN POST COMING UP
Thanks to specify Brian and wonder for the fine submissions,I promise to get to them in the next couple of day, you would not believe my current situation, but BY GOD this blog will remain.......please bear with me, New material, both guest and my own, will be coming soon......New job just gonna take a minute to get settled into.....s
And please continue i.e. to submit guest material. It may take me a minute but I promise I will get there... as I've told you before, I love you all, dearly
I told you guys I will never let you down, and I WON'T.....I LOVE LOVE LOVE you guys, I have
just recently taken on a new line of employment, 10 hr-days, PLUS a 3 hour round trip drive.......had to do it though, it's all about the benjamins, right? BUT I will NEVER let this blog die, guest material has been essential, and as of right now, I have a fuckin THREE DAY WEEKEND at my disposal, so let us see if we can get both some guest materian, as well as some of my OWN stuff up here......sorry if you've missed my posts, even sorrier if you think I've dropped off the scene, trusts me, I am in it for the duratution........I'll get a winter layoff, and I will bombard you fuckers with stuff.......as for now, though, we will go with guest material and whatever original stuff I can squeeze in,,,,,,,got a few things for tonight, besides, what the fuck am I gonna do, whatch the fucking Rebublican clown-show debate? Likely not........
Duke Spirit, we have an hour's worth of songs from singles, EP's, and elsewhere. Two of my most favorite Duke Spirit songs appeared only on EPs: "A Wild Hope" (from 2007's Ex Voto EP), and "Victory" (from the 2010 Kusama EP). "Echo Song" is a duet featuring Gerry Love from Teenage Fanclub. The last three tracks are at lower bitrates because they are web rips. If anyone reading this is in the UK and can share better quality digital copies, I would be very grateful, as these songs are not available through US digital retailers. There's also one b-side I don't have at all (Villain Laid Bare).

The new job, in case you had not heard,is taking some of my blog time away........I assure you I (and
my contributimg team) will NEVER let it die, it just may take a little bit longer to get your fix......sorry, gotta eat and all that shit, that year of retirement was sweet, but MAN was I geting bored/depressed, and just HAD to get back into the work field........so it is.........the next installmet of my mega-Stranglers post conists of comps, rarities discs,etc.......there will be some overlap, but I really don't have time to sort it all out........the Straglers were GREAT we all know that, and putting all thier stuff in one place for the fans is a necessity.......sorry it's taken so long, but it's just life/work, and i STILL love muisc, and TRULY love sharing it with you folks, whom I ALSO truly love........pick and chose here, Stranglers fans, there is good stuff here, also some overlap, but the Stranglers were one of the best and most underappreciated of the 70's-80's new wave/pumk acts, THE precurrsor to the Doors and (especially) Music Machine.....
Next up lets throw at ya "1977-90 Greatest Hits",nothing hard to find here, but a novice might find it just the thing for thier collection.
Next we have the fab "All 12 Inches", various Stranglers greats remixed and such and originaly taken from 12" singles.......don't miss this one, it's a really great one and one every Stranglers fan oughta own.
Next is the comprehensive 2-disc "The Hit Men", covers most of thier essential material, and an update of "Grip" ("Grip 89")........much like the earlier "greatest Hits collection", this is a bit more comprehensive, if you want but one Stranglers disc on your shelf, this may be it..........a finely selected and programmed collection.
"the best of the epic years" includes a lot of the older classics, some are alernate takes, such as single remixes, or the like.....for completists/fanataics.
From 2002 we have a treasure chest, "rarities", whcih inludes, some totally fantastic and unable to locate elsewhere rare Stranglers tracks, see track list for info, but this is one you REALLY want to have, Stranglers fan! Likely the best collection of hard to find Stranglers tracks you will stumble upon, unfortunatley including the unnecessary "radio edit" of "Peaches"........can't win em all.....
Now, they released a few more comps, such as "Peaches", "Very Best Of", and "Gold Collection", all
of which I DO havea here at my disposal but AM NOT opting to include here, due to the hella-overlap factor......if I missed something important on one of these sets, be sure and let me know, and I will issue either individual tracks or the sets as a whole, just seems like a lotta extra work right now.
Now, HERE is a gem, though........the 10-Track Collectors Disc, created by a fan club and given away free at some personal appearance events.....the cover/ad is included, I think this is a pretty rare find, don't you?
Gonna wrap this long set up with the three disc UA Singles Collection, I know there is some overlap here as well, but a lot of good stuff here, and a rarity raises it's head every now and again.
As I said, I have most of the other availabale Stranglers comps, if I have missed a track you'd want me to include, or a whole set, just let me know and it will be done, these guys just had a LOT of material, enough, in fact that I will get to yet ANOTHER posting, regarding thier solo efforts away from the band.......till then, sorry I make you wait so long between posts, breaks my heart, really, but things are settling down and I WILL begin to post a bit more stuff, with help, of course, from my guest contributors (DO NOT miss Jonder's fantabulous Duke Spirit series, it's unreal and I hope he shares some of his other fave bandswith us!)

It's been a bitch.......between the new job, my son's college visits, and unexpected computer problems,
it's been hard to get new material to you........thank God for guest posters, (Brian, ApantaBapanta, Cliff, JonDer).........I hope you ALL continue to send me stuff, I am thinking that right now I am in a position where I can post a bit more of my own stuff as well, and of course with winter layoff looming (Oh, yeeeeeeeeah), this blog is NOT NOT NOT going to die.......I promise you, I still owe you a LOT more music. the last couple months have been hectic due to the new job/long commmute, but we adjust, and things work out.......look for me a couple times this week, I will do my best, nad I know I owe Brian a few bumps which I will get taken care of this week as well (I have a TON of Robert Crumb Comix which will compliment his Robert Crumb muzic post like you won't even bleieve)......basically what I am saying is, THANK
