    Summer Canniblas is one of "those" BIG TIME bands (ala the great Tender Age) who desire FEWER
    listeners to thier work, rather than MORE. Of course, as always, I will remove anything from this blog for these perculiar types of performers, I never HEARD OF Summer Cannibals until I recieved (at no cost to ME, of course) their latest CD.......what they fail to understand and realize is that the world is a MUCH different place than it was 25 years ago. Remember, it was EASY for ME to get their album, and, just out of curiosity, I ran a  quick (one minute) search and found five more places where I COULD HAVE gotten it, had I the desire. Anyway, it's out there, ANYONE can get it, and I implore you not to, PLEASE give Summer Cannibals what they desire and FEWER people listen to their stuff......if you were one of the four (FOUR, WOW MAAAAAN) people who downloaded it from my site, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE delete it. They do NOT want you to hear it. Please respect their wishes.

    As always, thanks to REAL rock stars (ones with a HELL OF A LOT more of a following than Summer Cannibals will garner in 100 years) like Nikki Corvette, Lennon Murphy, Frightwig, Horny Bitches, Soaria, Datura, etc, etc, who understand that the exposure given to them here actually helps them to gain a wider audience. In other words, Summer Cannibals need music blogs ONE HELL OF A LOT MORE than music blogs need Summer Cannibals. I hope their dreams come true, and they acquire just as very few listeners as possible. I wish them well.

  • 05/29/16--09:21: Bulbous Creation
  • Another hard/heavy psych one and done from those wonderful early 1970's......another fave of mine, with fairly rough vocals, sloppy (a compliment) fuzz guitar, and unusually good drums and bass (for the era/genre).....not a lot of info available on this band, but this album ("You Won't Remember Dying") has been a fave of mine for quite some time. A pretty good one all the way through, my fave is "Let's Go to the Sun", but there is a cool heavy "Stormy Monday", "End of the Page" and more. You know, by now, my love for this type of music from this particular era, if you share it, this is for you without question.

    YOU WONT REMEMBER DYING-01 End of the Page/02 Having a Good Time/03 Satan/04 Fever Machine Man/05 Le's Go to the Sun/06 Hooked/07 Under the Black Sun/08 Stormy Monday

    (Scott) not terribly familiar, although I did watch "Twin Peaks" many years ago.......anyway, Jon S has yet to
    steer us wrong, so I will be checking these out. As should you be.

  • 05/29/16--13:45: The Doors Part 11 (Of many)
  • Ho!, You thought I forgot all about these boyos huh? Well dream on, there are a bunch of parts remaining on
    my hard drive, and Doors fantatics unite! A lot of this stuff IS pretty rare-and has also been quite popular......got a couple of the more rare ones even today (I think), let's dive in and see what is the prize recording for the date!

     Well, I may as well unburden myself of this 2 disc monstrosity, "The Doors In Concert"......I have no idea what it comes from, I can tell you that the first disc seems to incorporate most/all of "Absolutely Live" which was not that great to begin with, but then it goes on and on, with more lesser-known tunes (unsure of dates or venues), and Disc 2 (also no idea of its origin) contains "Gloria", a weird version of "Light My Fire" with a "Graveyard Poem" inserted, whatever else......Can't find shit about this set, it may have been spliced together from various live sets that are already here. What do you want for nothing a fucking rubber biscuit?

    In my generosity I am going to also throw up a 2001 release (REALLY haven't seen this one around too much) "The Ultimate Spoken Word Collection", with a few interviews, and some of Jimbo's musings on the universe......I don't like this stuff, hardly at all, but I promised ya I'm gonna BURY you in Doors shit by the time I'm done, so eat up!

  • 05/29/16--15:06: Nick Drake
  • Relative to how I am feeling recently, had to be Nick Drake or Elliott Smith today, and Nick had the lesser
    discography, so let's go that way.....DO NOT expect the usual BigScott Rock-o-Rama on this one, this is kind of eerie, kind of chilling, kind of cold........you'll love it or you'll hate it. Wait till I get to Elliott's stuff, I have a mountain of it......Nick only released three albums in his short life, let's examine them a bit......

    Drake, like myself, suffered with clinical/manic depression his entire life, which often comes through in his music, as we will see......his debut (from 1969), "Five Leaves Left", is quite a good one, actually, should you be up for such.....Drake enlists help from several top notch musicians, Richard Thompson and Tristan Fry, to name a couple.....this is a melancholy, disturbing effort from a man who OBVIOUSLY suffered from sever depression (If you never have you are fortunate and wouldn't understand).....this, however, is a fine disc, I listen to Drake (and Smith) now and then, just so I can remember that there are people out there who feel like I do. "Time has Told Me" and "Fruit Tree" stand out, but I give this a solid 4-star rating.

    Next was "Bryter Later", in which Drake also takes on several guest musicians....Richard Thompson, John Cale, and others, play creepy (kind of ) music behind Drake's cold, emotionless vocals...I like this album a good bit as well, another 4-star effort. "At the Chime of a City Clock", and "Poor Boy" are fine tracks, but, again, such a solid effort.

    Nothing, of course, could have prepared us for "Pink Moon".....a chilling album to be certain, Drake uses NO backing musicians.....merely his voice (rarely), his guitar, and some piano......opinions differ on this album, I think it's an ingenious masterpiece, on the level of Elliott Smith's "From a Basement On a Hill")....the ultimate statement of a mind in pain, a life in pain......I hate that VW utilized the title track in an advertising campaign, but what am I to do about it? Anyway, this is MY fave of the three albums he released in his lifetime, chills me to the bone each time.

    Nick Drake apparently over-dosed on anti-depressants in 1974........his tortured life came to a merciful end.
    He left us a trio of albums that we can listen to and try to figure out the puzzle that he was, I guess......if you have never heard these albums, please check them and maybe you can understand, somewhat, what clinical/manic depression feels like.....I know for sure.

    "Made to Love Magic" is a posthumous collection of tracks, most of them quite enjoyable for what they are.....I do NOT happen to have "Fruit Tree", a fine collection of outtakes and the like, I'm SURE one of the minions will be able to supply this one though.

    Nick Drake......a sad, torture life, makes me sad that he was so tortured....perhaps, were he alive today, various medications could have "got him right", as they sort of have me......RIP Nick. Love you!

    Whoops also found "Time of No Reply", another posthumous release, of course I'll add it on!

  • 05/29/16--16:22: Young Flowers
  • (Scott)-This is a John N contribution, sounds great from what I read......this is another one that yer uncles is not exactly familar with, but, fortunately, Ol' John N has provided us with a good write up.......procede, and this will be one my playlist this week!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Julian Cope said Young Flowers’s "The Moment Life Appeared” from their first album was "magical.”  He also praised their "totally full on freakout style” and pointed to them as precursors of Krautrock.

    Take Warning: The Complete Studio Recordings [Cherry Red] is the first time all of Young Flowers’s recordings have been brought together and anthologizes both their albums, their non-album debut single, contributions to the film soundtrack Quiet Days In Clichy, and a trio of live tracks which show how raw they could be. This is the Denmark of 1967-1969 at its freakiest.

    Young Flowers formed in summer 1967. They headlined Copenhagen’s Festival of the Flower Children in September 1967.

    The first Danish hippy band, the first Danish rock band to sing in their native language, and the first Danish band to play the States; they were pioneers.

    Members later played with the legendary Culpepper’s Orchard and Savage Rose.
    They immediately hit big with debut album Blomsterpistolen (Flower Gun), recorded as the soundtrack to a surreal TV series.
    A trio, and although influenced by Cream and The Jimi Hendrix Experience, their intense music had an experimental edge.
    They set Walt Whitman's poetry to music.
    The definitive, band-approved, collection, Take Warning: The Complete Studio Recordings, is a tribute to a unique band.

    Some bands, of which I am a "fan" rather than a listener (you know what I mean) are really hard to profile
    here, because I have SO MUCH material...I've NEVER done a Roxy music post/series, despite they being my favorite band of all, because I just don't know how to approach it.....well, I've been thinking Talking Heads for a while now, and the recent Byrne/Eno submissions and the like provide an excellent warm up for what I'm going to do here.

    OK, guitarist/vocalist David Byrne, bassist Tina Weymouth, drummer Chris Frantz and (later) keyboardist Jerry Harrison created some of the smartest, most intellectually challenging rock music every, forevever expanding their horizons and limits....they got their start in the 70's in the New York CBGB scene, but, like Television, NOT because they were especially (or even barely) "punk" in their approach, actually, they just happened to be in the neighborhood.

    I have a LOT of material to cover, today, let's begin with the obvious, the brilliant studio albums.....don't worry, later I have probably 30 live shows all eras, many demo sets, more stuff than  you could ever need....
    The first was "Talking Heads '77" (year of release should be apparent!)....it was LITERALLY like nothing ever heard before......1977 was a great year for music and I don't recall what the "top" album of the year was, but this had to be close. Besides containing the brilliant "Psycho Killer" ("I hate people when they're not polite!").....Byrne BECOMES the character, it's chilling.......but also "Pulled Up" (brilliant single), the stunning "Don't Worry About the Governement" and my lesser-known fave, "Uh-Oh Love Comes To Town" (sample lyric: "I'm a Know It All, I'm the smartest man around")....simply, there had never been anything like it. And THIS was just the beginning!......

    The next issue was even better, as impossible as that may seem. "More Songs About Buildings And Food" is nearly flawless (as was "'77")....."Thank You For Sending Me an Angel", "The Girls Want to Be With the Girls", "Found a Job" (especially), and "Artists Only" may not be as well remembered today....trust me they SHOULD BE. This would be a five star disc WITHOUT the sort of hit single, a brilliant cover of Al Greens "Take Me To the River", but it IS here, and this is a must have, must hear epic.....no excuses!

    "Fear of Music" is a much more mature, complex effort, and the beginning of the band's infatuation with
    African rhythms, also other experimental tactics......still, a lot of their greatest stuff is here...."Cities", "Air", "Drugs" (amazing), "I Zimbra", and the amazing "Life During Wartime" which has really transcended the band itself with it's brilliant lyrics ('this ain't no disco!")........another 5 star classic, how could they POSSIBLY top this one?

    Well, easilly..."Remain In Light" is one of my favorite albums ever. The usage of many guest musicians and vocalists fleshes out the sound incredibly, the opener "Born Under Punches" is amazing, simply indescribeable, "The Great Curve" equally amazing, introduces psychedelic guitar to the mix, "Once in a Lifetime" may be thier very best effort (listen closely to Harrison's amazing keyboard work), and "Houses In Motion" and "Seen and Unseen" (which is so deep I once wrote a paper surrounding it and incorporating it when I was in college) are also classics....should you be one of those odd types who wants only ONE album (really, impossible with Talking Heads), this one is the best.

    The next logical move for the band was to release a live album, in an attempt to recapture the band's ferocious live performances. That album is "The Name of This band Is Talking Heads".......an extended band breathes new air into already classic songs, and they do perform a favorite non-LP track of mine, "Love Goes to a Building On Fire"......another must have.

    By the way, if you have continued to read up to this point, these are not the CD versions of these albums...these are delicious vinyl rips, to be heard the way they were meant to be heard......sorry about the loss of the bonus tracks, BUT they will turn up later in a different context.

    1983's "Speaking In Tongues" is almost a letdown, being only a 4.5 star effort......"Burning Down the House" was their only hit single (it's great, like everything else they did), other great tunes include "Girlfriend Is Better" and "Moon Rocks", however this is the first of their discs I would NOT refer to as ABSOLUTLEY essential.

    "Stop Making Sense" was a live album/soundtrack for a film by the same title....a really good one as well, killer versions of "psycho Killer", "Burning Down the House", "Once In a Lifetime"......essential.

    "Little Creatures was thier weakest studio effort to date, although I feel strange saying that about an album
    that contains "And She Was", and "Stay Up Late".......I guess I'd give it three stars, but I personally wouldn't wish to be without it.

    "True Stories" is another film score, although these are studio efforts.......it's not REALLY that great, but does include the "Wild Wild Life" (one of their best)......this one I'd call a "fan effort".

    "Naked" was their final studio release, and their least ambitious.....it's the one talking heads album that I am not really crazy about.....just not that great in my estimation, but it IS here for you, should you desire it.

    OK, we got THAT outta the way, now we get to the FUN STUFF, boots, demos, rarities, and etc......but everything HERE you may want as well, so here is is for you!\

  • (scott) Jon S, meet John N......yesterday I made a fool out of myself, thinking "The Girl band" was actually a "girl band"......well, I got that straight in my feeble brain, and along comes John N to the rescue to fill in a gap or two left by Jon S......Jon, you may already have these (or not) but me personally, I just LOVE when things work out this way!

    (Jon N)-your friend probably has the other 3 releases, but just in case, here they are
    the France EP is rough ruff comparatively, but the songs are needed nonetheless, and a couple of listens, you're glad you have them

  • 05/30/16--13:20: Souldiggers Band
  • This is a god album from The Soul Digger's band, ca. 2012....I know they released at least a second effort,but I can't find it/don't have it, so hopefully someeone will come up with it. Why? because this slab is a fine piece of hard/stoner rock, very good, blusey, sort of memorable of maybe Five Horse Johnson.....it's a really good disc, for all you rock n rollers, give it a listen please. Can't say much more, but this is one you guys should enjoy!

    OK, I just couldn't let this go.....I found on Pirate Bay a "labor of love" creation by a Talking Heads fan
    named "imunionjack"......it's enormous, just his fave stuff from the band, in no particular order (well, alphabetical order).....well, I didn't want to repeat a bunch of tracks off of the studio albums I just put up yesterday, nor, the live stuff off of "Stop Making Sense" or "Name of This Band" (he didn't label everything as well as he might have, but it's ok).....so what do we have after my massive pruning job? Well, for one, we get a bunch of tracks from "Popular Favorites: Sand in the Vasoline", which will save me (I think) from having to post that double set.......but also, a ton of live tracks (dates, places unknown,I trimmed the ones from the aforementioned live sets, and likely some of them will turn up again on my boots), demos (again, the same ones MAY turn up later in my stuff), alternate versions (there's a REALLY good alternate version of "Life

    During Wartime" that I had never heard)........anyway, I'm going to try to boil these down to "disc" size, likely it'll take 3 or 4, but grab what you wish, I'll describe them in the tracklist as best I can, based on the information I have. Some of this, again, may windup being repeated, but I really didn't want to leave out a gem that any real fans of this band (like ME for example) would miss should I have skipped the whole thing....so, I thought about changing the order of the tracks (all demos on one disc, live on another, etc), but, who am I? I already trimmed about (half? a fourth?) of his project......so I will leave them in their glorious alphabetical order.......thanks to iamunionjack, wherever you are (this was created a few years back)....hope ya like it, some more of my stuff later tonight or tomorrow!

  • Nearly impossible to find any info on this band, I think this is their only release, 2001's "Biscuits and Slavery"......I used to generally dislike "southern rock" for the most part, but "southern stoner metal", ala Alabama Thunderpussy and this band I find pretty rockin'. This one is worth checking out, the vocals are a wee bit annoying (not TOO horrible, just kind of Molly Hatchett-like, and a handfull of good stoner rockin tracks, which may put on in the mind of Corrosion of Conformity or Alabama Thunderpussy, or Fu Manchu.....you get the idea.

    As I said, very little info here. Just slip this one on and enjoy.

    John N sends us this one, some really good slammin punk that sounds like it escaped from 1977.....the band is Ben Winnington on guitar, Matt Stevenson on bass, Wil Ray on vocals, and Pete Reisner on drums. They hail from Burton Upon Trent, Midlands UK, and draw a good bit of influence from, say, Stiff Little Fingers, the Clash, that general crowd.

    I see that they have released an EP or two before, haven't heard em, this was my first exposure, but I listened to this one the other day and was impressed enough to post it.....and, as usual, when posting a new release, if anyone takes issue, let me know and it will be removed with quickness. Until then though, this is a pretty good punk stomper/

  • 06/01/16--12:19: Souldiggers Band, Redux
  • Got several things I'd like to get to this evening, let's see how many I get to.....well, excellent submissions continue to pour in, and I WILL get to them, as soon as possible, and thanks a million for each and every one of them. last week (or so) I posted the first album from The Souldiggers Band, 2012's Search For Greater Things. If you recall, Souldiggers Band are a pair of gents from St. Petersburg Russia, and the first LP spit out some fairly good grungy stoner blues, more than adequate for that type of thing.

    Well, the follow up ("Second Coming") kindly submitted by a reader by the name of Henrick Morch (thanks Henrick!), released after a threee year break, is better if anything. More skull-bashing riffing and growling vocals, perfectly wonderful for all of you hard rock n roll lovers out there. Play loud, and thanks again to Henrick Morch for sending this one.

    SECOND COMING-01 Intro/02 Son of a Bitch/03 Blissout/04 Curious Girl/05 Everybody Lies/06 Slow N Lazy/07 Last Hope Rising/08 No Way Back/09 Spring Song/10 TKRV Sundown/11 Useless Days/12 If I Had the Time/13 Jacaranda (Long Awaited Rain)

    Keep the submissions coming, folks, I think this one comes to us from Russia or that general neighborhood.....that, again, is how this SHOULD work and thrills me that so many of us are helping each other to obtain, individually, "the" perfect record collection!

  • During my taxing work day, I let my I Pod run free, it's a classic edition (160 gb I think) that holds about
    1500 albums, which I loaded about ten years ago.....I've never changed it, I listen to newer stuff on a newer I Pod, and, well, who gives a fuck? Anyway, when I've got my OLD one cranking, sometimes something will come on and I'll be like "Why the fuck did I waste space on THAT?"....or, sometimes, such as last week with the Holograms, my reaction is more "DAMN I had forgotten all about that album....that fucking thing is great!"


    So it was today with Mr. Plow's "Head On", from 1999.....that thing came on and damn near knocked me over with a blast of sledgehammer stoner rock. Mr. Plow came out of Houston Texas in the late 90's/early 00's, and this album was a killer.......from the slap in the face opener "Right On" through the end of the lengthy workout "Molly", it never lets up......also "Mexican Smoke" and "Travis Bickle" show a knack for intelligent songwriting.

    Mr Plow consisted of, and you know I wouldn't make this up, vocalist/guitarist Jeremy Plow, vocalist/guitarist Justin Plow, bassist Greg Plow, and drummer Dave Plow.....they sure as hell could bring the noise, and seem forgotten. At least, they were by me.

    So once I got home I dug out the other two albums of theirs that I have......these are pretty good too. The sophomore effort, "Cock Fights and Pony Racin'", contains more heavy stoner gems, "Festivus", "From the Mouth of Gandalf", "Louder Than Larry".....I recommend this as well.

    Finally, the third effort, "Asteroid 25399" (2006) is not quite up to the standard set earlier, but this is no slouch either....."Malachi" and "Telepathic Butterflies" stand out, again, not QUITE as good as the first two, but if you liked them, this one is worth a spin as well.

    Don't know what happened to them after that.....if they have any more releases, I can't locate them, can't find any breakup information or anything. But I'll tell you this, "Head On" is a no joke piece of stoner rock as good as any from the "golden age" (!) of stoner rock. Not joking, run, don't walk for this one.

    HEAD ON-01 Right On/02 Mexican Smoke/03 The Gauntlet/04 Travis Bickle/05 Beat Down/06 Truck
    Stop Lovin'/07 Molly

    COCK FIGHTS AND PONY RACIN'-01 Festivus/02 Ode to Carlo/03 Louder Than Larry/04 The Dude/05 Electric Sheep/06 Master Blaster/07 Autozone/08 The Only Reason/09 From the Mouth of Gandalf/10 Hidden Track

    ASTEROID 25399-01 Malachi/02 Deadeye Dick/03 Staying Even/04 Ballad of Billy/05 Proteus/06 Ice 9/07 Rosewater/08 Telepathic Butterflies

    Good one for ya here, recommended!

    (Scott) when Jon S sent me these fab X boots today, I was simply going to add mine to them and make a
    mega post, but upon checking I just have too many to make it manageable.....so YOU are the winners, you will get his great series of X boots, (great for me as well because I have none of them), then tomorrow or so I'll do up a post with a bunch of MY X stuff, as X was/is always one of my faves and were a fantastic live band (never saw em, but the boots totally SMOKE).......

    BTW, thanks to everyone for all the submissions of late, I WILL get to you, I LOVE LOVE LOVE guest material!

    Henrick Borch of Russia or wherever (who submitted the Souldiggers Band album) has emailed me and vowed to send a bunch of psych/stoner stuff, and what could be better? Welcome Henrick! Meantime, here's Jon S with Part One of the "Great X Collaborative Effort".......this one will be a good one trust me!

  • 06/02/16--14:50: The Associates
  • From the link machine John N comes another  good one, three excellent albums from 1980's arty Scotish
    new-wavers The Associates. Best recalled for the unique voice of the late Billy Mackenzie, these are three fine albums for any fan of early 80's new wave synth-pop.

    The first release was 1980's "The Affectionate Punch", which was pretty much a failure at the time of release, but, as sometimes happens, has grown to be a bit more appreciated with time. It has some fine period piece pop, such as "Would I Bounce back", the title track, and "A Matter of Gender", but what makes this (and the other sets) so great is the incredible volume of bonus material on each......everything one could hope for or imagine.

    "Fourth Drawer Down" was their second release. It was released originally as a singles collection, and it does contain some excellent singles ("White Car In Germany", "A Girl Named Property"), but again, it's the overload of bonus tracks that is the real attraction here (not that the album isn't worthwhile if you don't have it already)

    Their third overall/second "proper" release "Sulk" is considered by most to be their top effort. "Party Fears Two" and "Club Country" were sizable hits, and once again, there is so much bonus material here I had to split the file (NOT FLAC)......

    For fans of this troupe, this is the absolute ultimate collection, their three essential albums all in super-deluxe editions. Can't ask for more than that, and thanks to John N for the submission!

    THE AFFECTIONATE PUNCH-01 The Affectionate Punch/02 Amused As Always/03 Logan Time/04 Paper House/05 Transport to Central/06 A Matter of Gender/07 Even Dogs In the Wild/08 Would I...Bounce Back/09 Deeply Concerned/10 A/11 Boys Keep Swinging/12 Mona Property Girl/13 Schmoltz/14 Green For Grief/15 Geese/16 Saline Drips/17 Galaxy of Memories/18 Double Hipness/19 Big Waltz (aka Paper House)/20 Janis (aka Deeply Concerned)/21 You Were Young/22 Bounce Back (remix) /23 A (remix)/24 Amused As Always (remix)/25 The Affectionate Punch (remix)/26 The End

    FOURTH DRAWER DOWN (DISC 1)-01 White Car In Germany/02 A Girl Called Property/03 Kitchen Person/04 Q Quarters/05 Tell Me Easter's On Friday/06 The Associates/07 Message Oblique Sunday/08 An Even Whiter Car

    FOURTH DRAWER DOWN (DISC 2)-01 Straw Towels (b side)/02 Kissed (b side)/03 Fearless (It Takes a Full Moon)/04 Point Si/05 Blue Soap (b side)/06 The Tree That Never Sang/07 Straw Towels (demo)/08 Q Quarters (demo)

  • 06/02/16--15:34: Sungrazer
  • This is a fine contribution from Studkid, whom I have been referring to as "Henrick Morch", because that's
    what his e-mails say his name is......I suspect an insurmountable language/computer thing, proving again that computers aren't as smart as they think they are.....also Studkid is from Denmark, not Russia or whatever guessed, proving that I, also, am not as smart as I think.

    Anyway, three great albums from Sungrazer. From Holland, formed in 2009, Sungrazer were guitarist/vocalist Rutger Smeets, bassist/vocalist Sander Haagmans, and drummer Hans Mulders. They released two find albums, as well as a split with The Machine, before disbanding.

    Their first (self titled) album was released in 2010.....I always liked it a good deal, it's songs range from hard/heavy Fu Manchu/Kyuss stoner stabbings to long, trippy jams.....one of the best albums of 2010 for my money (it made my list I remember), highly recommended for fans of stoner rock or psychedelia.

    The next year they released "Mirador", wonderfully trippy as well, again combining riff rockers like "Octo" with trippier stuff like the very good (and 13-plus minute) "Behind". Info is pretty scarce on these guys, so I really don't know what caused the dissolution, but I do know this, these are two goddamn EXCELLENT albums of stoner rock, a bit more psychedelic than the usual fare, but simply tremendous musicianship by all three members.

    The band also released a split album with The Machine. As far as the three Sungrazer tracks go, again, they are all quite good, in particular "Flow Through a Good Story".

    Good band.....really like all of these a lot and always have. Highly, highly recommended!

    And thanks to Studkid, I'll get your name right in the future, keep em coming !
