  • 05/09/16--12:24: The Doors Part 8 (of MANY)
  • Next part of the gigantic Doors torrent I tripped over a couple weeks a couple live discs and a
    couple of interview discs for your consumption this time (I am putting them up there in the order they came to me in the torrent so I don't confuse myself!)...

    First up is a double disc effort, "100 Minutes", which is a live effort from Vancouver 6/6/70......of most interest here is that Albert King joins the band onstage (Disc 1) as they perform a few blues numbers. Don't think I've ever heard this one, maybe it's hard to find, I don't know.

    Next we have a Jim Morrison interview disc 1/15/71.....rather lengthy, Bob Kourish performs the interview.....this is not REALLY my kind of thing, and thusly I have not listened to it, but I want to get the Morrison freaks to get everything they can handle.

    Another interview disc follows, "A 1971 Conversation with Jim Morrison", this one by Ben Fong Torres....this one is broken down into about 20 tracks, and I've not listened to this one either.....but, again, it's here, and if you just can't get enough of ol' Mr Mojo Risin' here it is....

    Wrapping up today is the commercial release, "Alive She Cried"....released in 1983, it's pasted together from a few different live efforts......a version of "Gloria" appears here, otherwise, fairly forgettable.

    Stay tuned, lots of more Doors stuff to come whenever I get to it.

    (Scott) kidding, "towering above the rest".....latest super-contributor Jon Scheiner sends this brain-
    bending collection (24 discs total!) of Radiohead rarities...B-sides, demos, live cuts, remixes, alternate name it. Obviously I haven't listened to all of it yet, but just look at the track lists below and you'll certainly see there are some (many) gems here.

    As I've insinuated before, certain bands have a rep for not wanting their music shared.....a partial list includes Corrosion of Conformity, Green Day, Sublime, Bratmobile, Robert Fripp, and others......not making any allegations here, simply that if you want this, you MAY wish to act quickly.....I've never had an issue with Radiohead before, I have never posted any of their "official" material, and this continues the trend.....still, be aware of what I say.

    This is but part one (of two) of this, whomever compiled this REALLY DOES "tower above the rest" as far as producing a complete labor of love......thanks to the creator, and thanks to Jon S. for sharing. Part 2 likely tomorrow.


    This is just 1/2 of the mammoth Towering Above The Rest Compilation, a fan made collection of b-sides, rarities, live tracks, and re-mixes. From what I've seen this was created around 2004, after Hail To The Thief and before In Rainbows, but a song from the most current release originally debuted in 1995 so it really doesn't matter. Honestly, I doubt I'll ever listen to all of this and it will take some sifting but there are plenty of gems to be found. As for the absolute completists: today is your lucky day!

  • 05/10/16--08:49: Two Minds Crack
  • Very little information is available on this early 80's synth-pop band, perhaps they got lost in the shuffle of 1000 other similar bands, which is a shame, because this ("Victory Parade",their only effort) really DOES stand out, and comes recommended by me for fans of this particular genre (and you know I really am NOT one, so coming from me, consider that high praise....

    Every track is a radio-friendly new wave/synth pop nugget, "Cry Cry Cry" and "One Sky Above" are should-been big hits, they weren't, but once again, if you grew up in the 80's (I didn't thank Christ), and dug the music of that era, this is one you MIGHT have missed. It's a good one, don't miss it again!

    VICTORY PARADE-01 One Sky Above/02 Walk On Back/03 The Hunger The Greed/04 Fire/05 Find the Key/06 Cry Cry Cry/07 Upside Down/08 Love Is In Control/09 Live to Die/10 The Sense That Never Sleeps/11 Cry Cry Cry (remix)/12 The Hunger The Greed (remix)/13 Upside Down (remix)

  • 05/10/16--10:32: Nashville Pussy
  • I've had this one in reserve for a while, not a REAL favorite, but some good sleazy-southern-psychobilly
    stuff, with the bonus of the early albums featuring bassist/goddess Corey Parks (she's about 6'5'" with a tattoo on her tummy saying "EAT ME"....for what more could I ask, I LOOOOOOVE them tall women, the taller the better.

    Anyway, music.....first up is an EP entitled "Eat More Pussy" (YEH!), it's plenty sleazy, but quite good in my estimation, complete with a total overhaul of AC-DC's "Kicked in the Teeth"......this EP was sometimes given away with the debut full length, "Let Them Eat Pussy", (1998) something of a scuzzball classic, maybe sort of gives you the same feeling as listening to Pussy Galore.....stuff like "Go Motherfucker Go" and "All Fucked Up" are damn near perfect for this genre, and the album also includes perhaps the greatest "fluke" hit of all time, "Fried Chicken and Coffee", which was nominated for a Grammy.....excuse me, I need to vomit.

    2000's "High as Hell" is a good listen as well, there is great shit here like "Blowjob From a Rattle Snake" and "She's Got the Drugs", despite the deliberate shock factor, this shit really does rock the yard and is worth your time.

    "Say Something Nasty" was their next effort, they attempted to keep the shock value high, but, as often happens with bands of this ilk, it kind of turned silly......not "bad", there are decent psycho-rockers here such as "Keep On Fucking" and "You Give Drugs a Bad Name".....thy peaked with the earlier efforts, when my girlfriend was strumming that bass.......this began the downward path for the band, still, not awful.

    Next up was 2005's "Get Some".....not a real favorite of mine, although it contains a fair track or two, notably "Lazy White Boy", which is a RALLY good one.

    "From Hell to Texas" (2009) is more of the same, the band's hardcore circle of fans seem to really enjoy it,
    no me, the joke was wearing a little thin.......perhaps if they enlisted another 6'5' female bass player.....well, never mind, if you like them you like them, and this one continues the trend...."I'm So High", ""Drunk Driving Man" and "Dead Can't Get Drunk" are pure Nashville Pussy, just a bit past their prime (except for their rabid fan cult.)

    Nashville Pussy was a band that knew its formula and beat it to death......."Up the Dosage" (I think the most recent , 2014, but they may have done something since) is yet more of the same, check these song titles:  "Before the Drugs Wear Off"....."Pussy's Not a Dirty Word"...."Hooray For Cocaine, Hooray For Tennessee" question, like it or not, this IS Nashville Pussy, they've remained true to their convictions and I give them some credit for that......sure do wish Corey parks would come pay me a visit though.

    EAT MORE PUSSY (EP)-Kicked in the Teeth/02 Nice Boys/03 Milk Cow Blues/04 Headin' For the Texas Border/05 Sock It To Me Baby/06 I'm Misunderstood

    (Scott)-so, from our newest mega-contributor, Jon S. comes the second half of the ULTIMATE in
    Radiohead rarities......I listened to some of the first half today, and that is some great stuff.......anything you can imagine: live tracks, alternate takes, remixes, demos......ANYTHING......between yesterday's post and this one, there are a mind-boggling TWENTY FOUR DISCS here, the compiler is, unfortunately unknown, I sure would like to give him thanks......but, I sure do give thanks to Jon S. for submitting it! As I said yesterday, this band has been known to be a bit "touchy" at times, so I can't guarentee how long this stays, even though they are not officially released recordings

    And here it is, the second 12 cds of the collection Towering Above The Rest. From what Is aw, the links on the site are from 2013 and the coupleI sampled are down. Don't know what you have or what you want, and in that we're in the same boat. Have fun!

    That being said, in response to my Lonely Kamel post from a few days ago, (their debut album is all I have), a reader named "Studkid" (I don't make em up) has generously given me links to their other three albums.....haven't gotten to listen to them yet, but I should by tomorrow, looking forward to it. In cases you need a reminder, they are a pretty cool stoner rock band from Oslo Norway, consult the original post if you want any more info.......I converted these to zippylinks, just to make sure they were OK, and they are.

    Today's stuff has all been of the contributed nature (I stress, NOTHING wrong with that, I love it), this one
    stems from a week or so ago when John N sent me Skywave's "Killerrocknroll" compilation, which I had never heard and thought was great. Asked him if he had any more, he generously sent a BUNCH, likely close to their complete body......again, I haven't listened to these yet, so not much I can comment on, but if it's anything like the previous comp, take the wonderful noise rock of A Place to Bury Strangers and combine with the weird melodic drones of  The Jesus and Mary Chain, and you'd about have it. I'll be listening to these soon, I recommend them (based off the comp), and thanks to John N for this submission.

    A few more live albums, some posthumous releases, and some of this and that that are still on my shelves
    after the first three parts......Rory was a great one, kind of an "anti-star" almost, and maybe not the most imaginative guy ever to set foot on stage....what he was, was a GODDAMN ROCK N ROLLER, killer guitarist, fine singer, and absolutely dynamic stag performer.......he is missed.  Here's what I have left:

    The two discs "Live at Montreaux" set is an ass-kicker, a career spanning epic and as good a live document of his performances as exists....all my faves are here at least...."Cradle Rock", "Laundromat".....this is a fine live album.

    "A Blue Day For the Blues" was released after his death, something of a "greatest hits" effort except that it focuses on his time on IRS Records.....thus no "Laundromat, et al, but plenty of good stuff, especially for the dabbler.

    "Etched In Blue" is another posthumous mishmash of tracks, again, OK for the dabbler, but if you've been paying attention, I've covered most if not all of this stuff.....since I have a copy, though, dig in if you want it.

    "In the Beginning" gives us some previously unheard tracks from Rory's WAY early can hear the seeds of his greatness here......this is NOT for the dabbler, but for real fans of Mr Gallagher's works.

    I had forgotten completely about "Stage Struck" another live effort which was released during his
    lifetime.....once again, stellar onstage guitar and shoutin', as I've said multiple times, Gallagher was FAR more comfortable on stage than in the studio.

    Finally, "Wheels Within Wheels", another posthumous release....some like this, I'm not crazy about it, it accentuates his softer, folkier side, which was not his forte in my estimation......still, I do have one, and here it is if you wanna hear it.

    I also have a copy of "Big Guns", a "greatest hits" effort" that I'm not gonna post, unless someone asks, because I think I've covered all the material on it anyway.

    Rory Gallagher was a bad ass......I know many who called him "generic", but all I know is the man rocked the yard, every time, on stage especially but also in the studio. God bless you Rory Gallagher, th world was a better place with you in it, but you sure as fuck left your mark on it.

    From Stockholm Sweden, and in the great garage rocking tradition of the Hellacopters are the Sewergrooves, who have released I think five albums, of which I have but two.....HOWEVER, these you want to hear, in particular if you liked the Hellacopters, this hits like an ambush. The band was composed of singer/guitarist Kurt Drackes, bassist Andres Broman, and former Hellacopters drummer Robert Erikkson, and guitarist Packe Wahlqvist.

    What I have here is their smoking 1999 debut, "Songs From the Sewer"......eleven machine gun blasts to your skull, no need to point out highlights on either of these, they are both great. I also have 2006 "Rock N Roll Reciever", and it's every damn bit as good.

    Both albums are on 1 disc/1 file here, but what I'm looking for are the ones I don't have, they have to be the fucking bomb as well.......highly, highly recommended, don't miss

    SONGS FROM THE SEWER-01 Yeah!/02 Yesterday's Zest/03 Faraway From Me/04 Do It Again/05 Electric (Shake Me Around)/06 Frame It/07 I Don't Know/08 Always/09 Never Too Much/10 Should I Care/11 I Want You

    ROCK N ROLL RECEIVER-12 She's a Punk/13 This Time I Know/14 Rock N Roll Receiver/15 Remember Everything/16 That Woman She's a Dead Woman/17 Going to be Nothing/18 Wrote This Song For You/19 Keep it Coming/20 I Sold My Soul To Rock N Roll So Help me Save Me Lord/21 Look Out, Now!

    Don't miss these, and help out if you have any of the outliers!

  • 05/15/16--12:44: A Bit more PJ Harvey......
  • (Scott)-Jon S. continues to supply the PJ Harvey, I've been enjoying it quite a bit. havent' heard these yet,
    but between these and the Radiohead (see next post) he's become quiet a valuable contributor.....thanks Jon S.

    John Parish and Polly Harvey started playing together in his band, Automatic Dlamini. He was a co-producer and musician on her first solo album, To Bring You My Love. They have been playing together pretty much ever since.
    On these two albums, Parish composed the music and playing the instruments with PJ providing the lyrics and vocals. Quite a few of these songs have made it into live shows over the years.

    (Scott)-A "RH" boot that I didn't have (I have a bunch of them)....gave this one a listen, it's tremendous, and

    Its new album release week so what better way to celebrate than with a classic live show! This setlist one of the best I've ever seen. Its matched by the immaculate soundboard recording. A must-have!

  • 05/15/16--13:27: The Rayvns
  • Thought I may as well put up something of my own before we get to

    tonights MAIN event (you will love it, trust me)....another of those forgotten 1980's new wave bands that I like to drag out now and the, the Rayvns were from Baltimore, and their claim to fame was their single "Raised on the Radio" was featured on the "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" soundtrack album......this is one of 1000 indistinguishable forgotten 1980's new wave efforts that rest upon my shelf, this one is one of the better efforts's a pretty fair album, give it a spin and see if you agree.

    THE RAVYNS-01 Don't Leave Me This Way/02 Rhythm of the Heart/03 Cool Boy/04 Lose You/05 Raised on the Radio/06 Ready For Romance/07 No Regular Woman/08 Second Hand/09 Physical Attraction/10 Wraparound

    other discs, this is the only one I have ("Places to Hide", from what I read, it's generally considered their best)....hard to find much info on them, but the album is good old noisy stoner/hard psych/sludge, so you know old Uncle Scott is gonna love it.....seriously, a pretty damn good one, please take a chance on it, and IF anyone has any of their other albums, I'd love to hear em.

  • 05/15/16--14:10: Brian's Bowie Tribute
  • (Scott)-This is one you guys will want to hear....Brian, of course, being the "king of cover projects", and this
    one....well, it's Bowie, what more needs to be said......I got a sneak preview of this a week ago, and this one is killer again, Brian is perhaps the best on earth at creating these particular projects, and I am thrilled that we can post them here! Don't miss this one, although after he describes the project for you, I think you will be running, not walking, to grab this beast!
    This one has been in the works for awhile. I started it around the time of the Hot Rocks covers comp. After an initial burst, I left it alone for many weeks. I was finding it hard to listen to Bowie. At one point, I almost uploaded what I had, a half-assed collection of 17 covers, just to be done with it. But this little corner of the Internet likes my covers comps, and if anyone deserves doing right, it's Bowie. So.... now we have a kickass collection of 50+ covers! And given that Bowie is the inspiration, the musical variety on display is even a bit more than usual... though no Laibach, strangely enough....

    If I've never said it to you before, I've got something to say now about these covers projects. One of the reasons I like doing them so much is that each time, I learn something. I often don't know a good amount of the groups I'm assembling, or maybe not those specific songs by the artist being covered. A good example of this is the Dylan covers pile back in September - I was a completely different Dylan fan after I made that one! Often, there's a cover or two that provides the first impetus, and then it goes on from there. And please, never think I just grab the first okay cover of a song I find. I'm always deleting and finding new ones til everything sounds just right.

    This Bowie comp is a good example of that. But the bitch of it was, I couldn't nail down the tracklist. I knew what I wanted to begin and end the parts with, but that was all. Finally, I just went all "raffle ticket" with it, putting song titles on bits of paper and shaking em up in a box. Somehow, I think David would appreciate that idea. And for once, each one of these clocks in under 80 mins, should any of you have the desire to burn them onto CD.

    Guys, given the size of this, I don't want to write about every track. I'll talk about some of the unique ones and favorites on here, but just roll with the rest of it, OK? By this point, you know whether or not you like what I do, and trust me when I say this one is good. My writing batteries are just a little low right now.

    Many people have covered Bowie. There were a lot of versions of "Life On Mars?" and "Space Oddity" - from artists as disparate as Natalie Merchant and Barbra Streisand. There's two versions of "Heroes" here because I couldn't decide between the faithful cover (Junkyard Liberty) or the awesome shoegaze (Luna Ghost). So, I've bracketed each volume with two covers of each of these three Bowie standards. But don't worry - no Streisand.

    The reimagining of "Let's Dance" by German metal band Atrocity is brilliant, making one of my least favorite DB songs highly listenable again. The a cappella version of "Changes" by the Calvillo Sisters was ripped from a YouTube vid. I like it for it's uniqueness. I love Rickie Lee Jones's acoustic "Rebel Rebel". Seu Jorge's version of "Lady Stardust" is from the Portuguese-language Bowie covers he did for the movie The Life Aquatic With Steve ZissouBauhaus's "Ziggy Stardust" just kills...I don't think I've ever heard Peter Murphy howl like that! And the version of "Scary Monsters" is by Frank Black and David Bowie, because if anyone is gonna defy the rules - not to mention death - on one of my comps, it's Bowie! (Plus, the only other easily findable version by Laether Strip is pseudo-KMFDM crap).

    The Melvins are the perfect group to cover "Breaking Glass". The same can be said of Tears For Fears' and Franz Ferdinand's covers, too. Phillip Glass's "V-2 Schneider" is from his Low Symphony - definitely worth checking out. Of course, Nirvana is here. Michelle Branch is an early 2000's pop crush of mine, and she also turns in a great "Life On Mars?". Scott Weiland (RIP) was always a glam boy at heart, and his version of "Fame" with Paul Oakenfold retains Bowie's sense of funk. And I've never heard of Steve Salas, but that is an awesome cover of "Always Crashing..."!

    You guys should like this one. I'm glad I took my time with it. The bonus link for this post is an album by my
    favorite impression/voices comic. If you've ever heard or seen his "Movie Previews Guy" bit, this is the album it came from. Funny stuff

    And a big thanks again to Jonder for helping me with this one. He did the cover art and some track editing for me. Someday I'll get a working computer again, but in the meantime, he's a great cohort to have. Go back a few weeks and give his posts some love, too.

    (Scott)-First of all, how about that Bowie covers project? Masterminded, of course, by the king  of cover
    projects the one and only Brian.....the post has been hit A LOT, as it should be. Now, along comes Jon S. (a fantastic recent addition to the blog!) with a supplemental/complimentary piece to Brian's, featuring the band Shearwater (of whom, I will be quite honest, I have never heard.....that's why I LOVE it!)...Jon S. will tell ya all about it....

    This is meant as a compliment to Brian's massive Bowie covers tribute. It is a very thoughtful and thorough collection he put together. 
    Just a couple of days ago, I saw the band Shearwater had covered the Bowie album Lodger for the website, The AV Club. Like Brian said, listening to the covers, although fairly faithful to the original, gave me a new appreciation for the album. (The youtube link is below if you want to watch the in-studio performance.) 
    Also included here is a live performance of Lodger by Shearwater, recorded recently by nyctaper (I know Scott mentioned them in a post not long ago - a great site!). And, since they're a really great band in their own right, I also added the new album, Jet Plane And Oxbow, by Shearwater and another nyctaper live show.

  • 05/17/16--13:56: John N amazes me AGAIN
  • Well, I thought I had stumped you all with my post of stoner semi-unknowns Jack and the Bearded
    Fishermen......I requested help finding their other LP's, REALLY expecting none.....along comes John N, who seemingly owns every CD ever made, with a batch of stuff from Jack & Co.

    Of course, I am uncertain if this is their entire catalogue, but I'm guessing MAYBE it is, since it even includes a split single (with Hombre Malo)......I'm gonna go see if I can find track lists for these, I'll be RIGHT back!

    HUNTING ISN'T EASY (WHEN DOGS BECOME WOLVES)- 01 Intro/02 Well Done Black Wolves/03 Good Bye Black Wolves/04 Don't Need Friday/05 Lightning Colt/06 Shipwrecked and Survivors

    MINOR NOISE-01 Autumn Arrows/02 Low Tide/03 Reminder/04 Minor Noise/05 Inverted Queen/06 Way Out/07 Wet Black Papers/08 Tina/09 White Hours/10 Program


    Thanks a million to John N, I think this fills out the collection, as best as I can tell......for the record, "Hunting"
    came out in 2009, "Places to Hide" (which I posted last week) is from 2011, as is the split single, and Minor Noise is from 2014......great submission John N, we need more lesser-known stoner rock n roll here!

  • I guess it's been a LITTLE while since I slammed the Doors sledgehammer, so let's see what is up for part about three double disc sets, which I don''t think I've seen around the web too much.....first up is a real curiosity, "Backstage and Dangerous, The Private Rehearsals" from 1969.....If you are down with this kind of thing, it's a treasury, if you find these things kind of boring, well.......lots of studio chatter, lots of half-assed efforts and corrections......all in all, a fairly interesting curiosity. Really for Doors fanatics only, but I know there are one or two of you out there!

    Next up come a pair of shows from The Aquarius Theater, 1969......don't really recall seeing these around all that much either, so, again, calling all Doors fanatics......the first two discs ("The First Performance") is certainly not unlistenable, they pull off an impromptu "Crossroads" and the crowd is seriously into it.

    The "Second Performance" is ANOTHER two discs, features a somewhat similar setlist, again, really, for fanatics only....

    Have we had enough Doors? I TOLD you you'd be tired of them once I wrap this one up.....anyway, I'm gonna do it, coz this is the kind of thing I do........this is for Doors obsessives, should you not be one, PLEASE hit up Brian's Bowie covers project, it's one of the best posts ever on this blog, seriously.

  • 05/17/16--15:51: The Demonics
  • Might as well do another post this evening as I watch my 30-year marriage crumble before my eyes......I

    have to do SOMETHING and right now, I can't think of anything more constructive to do.......I sure hope I can save this thing, but I really doubt it, and you know what? I'm not all THAT upset about it.....I love this woman with all my heart, as longtime readers will know, but after threatening me with probably 20 divorces in 30 years, I really don't feel like being bullied anymore......there are as many loose women in Ohio as anywhere else, I am assuming, so, if my desire to mend this thing (AGAIN) doesn't work, I'll be putting out the call for 40+ year old Buckeye sluts!

    Here are a pair of good albums from the San Francisco band The Demonics.....they I don't have, nor have I ever heard (I don't think) their 1998 debut "Formaldehyde Injection", but I do have the next two releases, 2000's "Demons on Wheels" and 2002's "Ritual on the Beach".

    This was a good band...they combined 60's-era surf with 70's punk and glam to create a fairly unique sound that seemingly, to me, was fairly underappreciated......basically vocalist/guitarist Russ Wright and drummer Amy Cesari, I'd hope you'll check these out as they REALLY are quite good.

    "Demons On Wheels" is a good listen all the way through, "She Devils On Wheels" and "Fuel Injected Suicide Machine" standout, but "Ritual on the Beach" is the REAL standout, a really underrated album with standouts like "Bikini Bitch" and "Evil Angel" among the standout, but towering above all is the stellar "California Nightmare", a great song which alone would be worth the price of admission.

    Don't really know whatever happened to this band, but these are a pair of good albums they left in their wake.

    DEMONS ON WHEELS-01 She Devils On Wheels/02 Anestesiologist/03 Little Honda/04 Dunebuggy Denise/05 Race Against Dawn/06 Purple Hearts/07 Say Ten/08 When You're Dead/09 Pure Hell/10 Dustin the Fuzz/11 Fuel Injected Suicide Machine/12 Motorgeddon/13 Untitled

    RITUAL ON THE BEACH-01 Summoning Neptune/02 Ritual on the Beach/03 Mavericks/04 Makaha/05 Sector 9/06 Mother Superior/07 Bikini Bitch/08 Boys Like Me/09 What Happened to the Sun?/10 Evil Angel/11 California Nightmare/12 Aloha Oe
