Formed in the early 2000's by vocalist/guitarist/pianist Erika Wennerstrom, they were (locally) notable for some very rootsy blues/country/back to basics live shows, 205 saw the release of theyvery good and underappreciated "Stairs and Elevators" (made at least MY Top Twenty album list of that year).....a good, fairly stripped mdown set with some good tracks such as "Gray" and "Pass and Fail".....nothing spectacular here, but in the right mood, this is some really good stuff.
The band is/has always been Wennerstrom's thing, the other personnel as been rotated in an out, so basically, the focus is on her, and shw is quite talented. The third album, "The Mountain",IS NOT a favorite of mine, but to their (her?) credit they did TOTALLY reinvent their sound, this is basically a country album (a genre I'm not a fan of) featuring violin/banjo etc.......if you like this type of thing, this is a fairly esoteric, quirky, and surprising effort, I can see people (some people) LOVING it......doesn't really get it done for me.
I DO have two super-rarities, since they were a "local" act, they twice appeared on WOXY's "Lounge Acts", I have both appearances, quite good and if by any remote chance you are a fan of them, these will be like gold to you, focussing on the earlier albums and showing off their (considerable) live chops.
As I say so often, I try to keep things a LITTLE diverse, I wouldn't want to pigeonhole my blog into NOTHING but stoner-metal or classic 1970's punk for example. I have NO IDEA why I opted for this band today, I bet it's been 2-3 years since I even listened to "Stairs and Elevators" or "All This TIme", but I remember I enjoy them a good bit......see what you think. If you like them, check out the later albums, and especially, if you like them, check out the WOXY appearances, they are quite good.

Links will be up when they are up, ya know......please leave a comment if you have the time and are of the mind to.
Please always remember, too, seriously, I REALLY love all you folks and you are the reason I do this each day......thanks for reading/listening/commenting/whatever.
I don't recall where I got em but I do have some other stuff from them, a single with some traks that aare not on the album, some "Rehesal Recordings" with a few OTHER tracks, and "The Cayuga Sessions", whatever that is, but it DOES contain another version of my fave "Fuelle".
Can't tell ya a lot about these guys, but they did give us one kick ass album and a smattering of other rarities. Crank this up, fairly unknown and highly worth your while.
LE RODEO SINGLE-01 Avalanche/02 Firetruck/03 Silver Dragon
2001 REHEARSAL SESSIONS-01 Probably Some Cowboy Name/02 The Baquero/03 Rodeo Exelencio
THE CAYUGA SESSIONS-01 Fuelle/02 Cayuga 240/03 Speedball Mind/04 Afro
Nearly impossible to find even any PICTURES of these guys other than the album, I did finally scrape up a picture of the single.....I'll add a UTube clip, seems to be a pretty good un too:
Shouldn't be TOO hard to get these linky-dinks up hopefully by tonight.........hope you guys like this one and leave a comment if you do, even if you don't. And like Nirvana said "Spring is here Again"......myself I just love March Maddness and some fucking MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL (since my son plays baseball no longer, which saddens me, I was a baseball coach for over 25 years).....anyway, I plan on keeping the tunes coming to ya, as lonas there is interest, I got one email from some douche the other day "why don't you do this and this and stop doing this and that, and do this the way I would prefer you to do it and......." Dear Douche: Please BLOW ME. I am not your goddamn employee and will do this EXACTLY the way I see fit. Should it not be acceptable to you, please do feel free to go fuck yourself. Love Always, BigScott1962
Formed in the late 1970's in Dublin Ireland by singer/guitarist Kevin Shields, drummer Colm O Ciosoig, singer/guitarist Bilinda Butcher, and bassist Debbie Googe, thess guys created a semi-psychedelic shoe-gaze kind of sound that was/is fairly a unique niche for them, the High Violets a couple decades later would make an attempt to cop their groove, but My Bloody Valentine are the originals.
It would be over twenty years before they would follow up with "m b v", JUST recently.....in genreal, I don't put new releases up, and I ahve NOT listened to this yet, BUT I think it might be necessary to paint a complete picture of their work, and it's not like I'm putting up a new Aerosmith album or some such nonsense.

There are a BUNCH of links here (19 to be exact as I had to split the FLAC files.....anyway, the links may not be totally up until after work tomorrow, SOME should be up in the morning, but this is a big-time mega-post, from a significant band with a limited library of work.......if nothing else DO NOT miss out on "Loveless", one of the greater albums of the 1990's, and there is a LOT of other, good, unique work here that needs to be heard..........My Bloody Valentine did things their own way, and for that I congratulate them......but they did produce one certifiable masterpiece in "Loveless", and anyone smart enough to be reading this blog is smart enough to make certain they are familair with "Loveless"......and congrats to the band for finally getting the follow up, "m b v" out there, I plan on listenting to it tomorrow, and I hope it doesn't dissappoint. As always, rock on, and I'll think of something else for tomorrow!
After the work I put into the My Bloody Valentine post, I'm going to take it way easy with this one, the one and only full length from Houston's Jewws, "L'Explosion Du Son De Maintenant". They contained some members of The Junior Varsity, had bit more edgy, punkish sound than that band. I understand (unconfirmed) that they are somewhat legendary in Houston, if so, perhaps someone in that area has some boots or lesser-known singles or something. As is, this is a fine album of garage-punk-pop, really short blasts of garage greatness, this is a semi-classic that slipped through the cracks. Can't tell ya TOO much about them, but, trust me, this is a good album.
L'EXPLOSION DU SON DE MAINTENANT-01 Mercury to Mars/02 You're Gonna Lose/03 Girl Gets Around/04 My Baby Don't Rock N Roll/05 Moon Equipped/06 When Your Man is Gone/07 Man From the Magazine/08 Bad Lovin Thing/09 Saturn Swivel/10 The Space City Beat!/11 Just Blink, She's Gone/12 Love In a Pill/13 Animal/14 Keep On Cryin'/15 Gotta Go

FIELD RECORDINGS FROM THE SUN-01 Beneath the Iceage/02 Return to Heaven/03 The Unicorn/04 ESP/05 The Black Poodle
AVATAR-01 Dogwood Rust/02 Jaybird/03 Lucifer's Memory/04 The Swallow's Eye/05 Holy Teeth/06 Sour Smoke/07 Hatched Upon the Age/08 (BONUS) Oscillator Solo
Links will be up when they are up, Zippy has been a thing of mystery of late....Saturday night going to see my great pals SAMAX play a set at a wonderful bar in Lima Ohio, hope to capture some video/MP3's or something so you guys can realize their greatness as well!
They followed that up with "Rare and Raw" which I don't have and evidently is pretty much made up of live BBC tracks.....calling all "friends of the blog", especially those in that state up North. Next was perhaps the best, "Pawn Shoppe Heart", lotsa good tunes like "C'mon C'mon" and "Crawl Through the Darkness" among others. Good album.
Their most recent release was 2009's "Love, Hate, Then There's You", which is another pretty good effort. I think I recall something about this bunch (or Stollsteimer) having some type of a hip-hop style "fued" with The White Stripes (or, more specifically, Jack White).....I forget the details and don't really care enough to look it up.
Three pretty good albums, here, really.......good old Detroit-style hard blues rock, and what on earth is wrong with that?
Links will be up sometime or other, Zippy, I am at your mercy!
PAWN SHOPPE HEART-01 No Regrets/02 Broken Man/03 C'Mon C'mon/04 Tell Me What You See/05 Been Swank/06 Mairead/07 Not That Social/08 Crawl Through the Darkness/09 The Fever/10 Right Of Way/11 Poison Ivy/12 Pawn Shoppe Heart
LOVE HATE THEN THERE'S YOU-01 This Is Our Perfect Crime/02 Shut Your Mouth/03 Pale Bride/04 Only To haunt You/05 21st Birthday/06 She's Dead To Me/07 Chancer/08 Blame Game/09 I Don't Wanna/10 Accidents Will Happen/11 Earth Quake/12 Modern Saints
Anyways, these guys don't go all out on titling the albums, but they do have some pretty damn good tracks on each. They are yet another of those, what I would call maybe "second tier" stoner bands, and you know that is the kinda stuff I love. Play loud, kick back, rock n roll forever. Relax, if you're a fan of the previous stoner stuff I've posted and you are unfamilair wth these dudes you'll love em.......and I've also incldued their BRAND NEW "Kings of Frog Island IV", which consists of two LOOOONG tracks, Atomic Bitchwax and Sleep, among others have went with this gimmick as well, I'm not crazy about it really, but it is what it is, and it works fairly well here (just listened to it for the first time about an hour ago!).....agian, I don't IN GENERAL put new albums up here, but it just seems to me that the Kings of Frog Island aren't exactly household names, and I suspect they'd rather thave the exposure....if I am wrong, say the word and down they come!
Links probably up in the morning! Enjoy yer Sunday night, want to mention my pals from SAMAX played antoher good set last night (what I remember of it!) and, if they are reading this, need to send me some MP3's ASAP! Welome to the working week, I know it don't thrill ya, I hope it don't kill ya......

Try to get maybe half (if lucky, ALL) of the links up tonight, I REALLY do enjoy these super-obscure punk comps, and as I said before I have a BUNCH of them. Let me know if you want me to go on with them for a while, It "feels" like something I might be in the mood for, for a few days anyway. We shall see........in the meantime, love yourselves and each other.
One of the many great "friends of the blog" has kindly donated the missing third album from 1313 Mockingbird Lane, titled "Triskaidekaphobia".......as I've said so many times before THIS is how a SHARE BLOG SHOULD WORK......someone (me, or someone else) has something hard to find and we SHARE it with people who wish to hear it.......once again, there is a difference between "SHARING" and what the idiot fringe considers "Stealing" (Hi, Corrosion of Conformity, Green Day, and Molly Numan of Bratmobile......)when you STEAL something it's gone.....the offended party is MISSING his original material. When you SHARE something, both parties get the benefit of the material. This is so very hard for so many to comprehend, and yet look at the world in which we live. Why on EARTH would any professed musicin WANT TO DENY ANYONE from hearing their work? Baffles the mind.
TRISKAIDEKAPHOBIA-01 Teenage Frankenstein/02 Grab My Guitar/03 Teenage Head/04 You'll Never Know/05 Tallahassee Lassie/06 Surfin and Draggin/07 I Like You Better Dead/08 Paper Bag Blues/09 (I Don't Wanna) Hold Your Hand/10 (I Want a) Teenage Girl/11 Shakin' The Jam All Over
Try to get this link up really quickly!
I really want feedback on this stuff, let me know whether you love/hate it.......I think these are fine albums, certainly composed of bands more interested in YOU hearing their shit than worrying about whether someone is sharing links to their work.

And I'll have a converted zippyshare link in a little while, use either one. All thanks, though, go to "that-cat-guy" for provding us with this rare gem.
CHIPMUNK PUNK-01 Lets Go/02 Good Girls Don't/03 How Do I Make You/04 Refugee/05 Frustrated/06 Call Me/07 You May Be Right/ 08 Crazy Little Thing Called Love/09 My Sharona
Something of a Knack infatuation there it would seem, we could have a quite scholarly debate as to whether the Chipmunks or the Knack were more significant in the big picture....Chipmunks get my vote.......Anyway, this is tooooooo great, check out that rockabilly "echo" on "Crazy Little Thing Called Love", the slaying of "Call Me", and standing above all others, the phenominal version of "Refugee".......Let us hear comments on this masterwork, and let us hear praise for the man who brought it to us "That Cat Guy"!

Why this happens sometimes I'll never comprehend, but when I published it, published out of sequence, thusly if it were not for this explanation, the FIRST thing you'd see on the page would be "Bloodstains" Part 2......BUT scroll down PAST part 2 and you will see part 3. I remember similar things happening with the "Garage Greats" series, sometimes for some reason or other they would publish out of order, but one would think this simple non-explanation could get you pointed in the right direction.......just SCROLL DOWN and find Part 3......the links aren't ready yet anyway, but when they are that is where they will be.........Sorry, I am at a loss to explain it. Actually now I see why it does that, I wrote a bunch of parts for this thing all on the same day mand it publishes in the order they are WRITTEN, I guess I can change the dates on the rest of them or something and make them come out right. Not gonna for this one though, just scroll down past "part 2" AND past "Chipmunk Punk" and you'll have it!
My head is spinning as I had a few hours to kill today and tried to get a bunch of these done so I could take it easy for the next week or so.....typing all these titles in tonguesother than my own is a bit tricky, but I DO love non-English language rock, so I guess the typing goes with the territory. What we have today is "Bloodstains Across Norway", and then it gets odd.....Two discs of "Bloodstains Across Europe" (haven't a good bit of these ALREADY been from Europe? I don't care for this part of the concept, as it pretty much gave them license to throw anything on there, these are harder to listen to than, say, a disc of all Norway bands or whatever.....gets even worse after that with 2 discs of "Bloodstains Across the World", again, fairly cut and paste collections which to me are the weaker links of the series, they feature bands from as diverse corners of the globe as Poland, Holland, Japan, China, South Africa, all of which I guess is OK because perhaps those lands did not have enough stuff to fill out their own discs, but these are also loaded with stuff from Germany, the UK, Switzerland, and lots MORE that we have already "visited"........oh, well.... I prefer that the discs represent the flavor of the individual countries, but who the hell am I to bitch? Anyway, with Part 5 we will get back to specifics, with the FOUR disc "Bloodstains Across the UK"......so, other than the Norway set, I personally consider these discs the weaker links in this chain. Just my opinion though.

Today we will focus strictly on the UK, four discs from the cradle of punk rock. As with the rest of this series, it is obscure, unknown, and cool as hell. Please continue to let me know what you think of these discs, we already know MY opinion (I think they fucking great), but I'd love to hear some feedback from the minions on this series!

Gotta be honest with you my friends, we had an unseasonably late snow storm last night (Sunday) which I was called in to protect you from......I did so, which put me a LITTLE behind on getting the links upo each day....the plan, as of now, is to get the links forPart 4 up yet tonight and HOPEFULLY the links for Part 5 will be ready to go in the morning, after work at the latest, and we shall be caught up......it's a shame that I have to go, "work"and have a "job" and all that, but such is life.......trying to bring you the most obscure in punk/stoner/psych/garage/whatever has to come after feeding my family! Soooooooooo sorry!
music of various types over the decades, and three fine discs full of flat out punk. This will complete the "international" volumes of the series, and tomorrow, we will begin on the discs that concentrate on the good old U S of A......how are you enjoying these discs? They are great, aren't they? They really give us points of comparison in differences in sound/style, and I love them. Hope you do to! Let me know......I'm almost finished, what do ya want me to do next? MORE obscure punk comps? Or have ya had enough? Time for some head-clearing stoner rock? I was thinking about doing another mega post ala last year's 7 part Sleater-Kinney post, maybe dealing with the Clash or Roxy Music, both of whom I possess more material than you could possibly even imagine. Let me know what you are feeling, and that is the direction in which we will go......I was also thinking of the complete 9 disc set of the "Monterey Pop Festival", what do we think of that? Help a brother out, my 50-year old brain needs help on occasion. Anyway, thanksreading, discussing, commenting, and sharing, and as you know I love you gs, you are the reason I share this stuff.....anything I have, is yours, just say the word!

NOTE: Volume 2 claims "16 Essential Punk ROck Blasts".....when I pop in the disc it has about 26 or 27 tracks on it, I am not about to try to identify them, so consider them BONUS tracks!
I'm still a LITTLE BIT behind on links thanks to the great blizzard of March 2013, but I'm hoping to have the Sweden links up tomorrow (Wedensday) morning......thanks everyone!
Today we wrap up this fine series with discs from the greatest country on the planet, the United States of America......the set is broken down regionally, and the differences are quite intersting...in particular, shouts to the Toxic Reasons on the "Midwest" disc, who used to play in bars around here (Dayton Ohio area) all the time back in the day, I guess they released an album that I probably have around here somewhere, but I think it is cool that maybe YOU recall this band or that band playing in some shitty club in Texas or California or Portland or whatever, and they make this comp series? Please comment if you are familar witha ny of these combos in such a manner as seeing themin some sleezy club, THAT summarizes the American punk scene for me at least.
