Finally I have fucking internet service, complete story to come, but MY part of the blog (thanks to everyone who helped out!) will be resuming soon WITH a slamming new guest contributor, Madame Angela who is a bad-ass in EVERY sense of the word..........thanks for sticking around, thatnks to EVERYONE who helped out (there were many!) (especially Brian and Jonder!), but I hope to get things back to normal (or BETTER than that!) by tomorrow! Thanks for visitiong!
Ok....hello all......this stuff is the down but not out BigScott62.....I have been away for a while, and
am lucky that my contributors have stepped up and kept the blog alive.
Few random things I want to ramble about, first of which is the origination of my lack of Internet service. Well, here goes.....as some of you know, my wife of 30 years and myself have decided we are finished, plenty of blame both ways, mostly ammicable....we will always have a wonderful son together, which is the main accomplishment for both of us.
Anyway, a couple weeks ago, while our son was away visiting in alaska, and while I was at work, my wife came and took a bunch of furniture, aND ALSO SHUT OFF MY INTERNET/WIFI, which was much worse than the furniture.........she f ucking knew what this blog means to me, and rather than allow me to enjoy one small fraction of my life, decided to cut THAT off as well.
Well, I must say I had a LOT of trouble with Time Warner, getting reconnected, as of Friday 7/15 I have me connection back, finally.
I want you ALL to know, however, that in the downtime I have met someone very special.......her name is angie, but to the blog sphere she will be Madame Angela......she is quite knowledgeable on music, and will be writing and assisting on some future posts. Like to mention, as well, that I am TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH HER, at this point it's just fun to keep telling everyone.
THANKS SO MUC H to everyone who kept the blog afloat while I got it together.....Brian and Jonder especially, but Jose & the Spanish All-Star Blogger team, John n (buried in links!), Jon S, StudBoy, Clifff from the UK, and GODDAMN even Andie James and DAVE SEZ! WOW!
OK, lets back to posting some sounds......my first post back is a John N submission, live recordings from three bands that will likely draw interest here.
First we have The Fall, whom have been a hot topic around here for a spell, live at Reykjavik Iceland,
9/12/83.....having never heard this one, ought to be a good one. TRACK LIST: 01 Tempo House/02 The Classical/03 Eat Y'self Fitter/04 Hexen Definitive/05 I Feel Voxish/06 The man Whose Head Expanded/07 Garden/08 Kicker Conspiracy/09 Look, Know/10 Backdrop
Next up John N sends us a fab Keith Richards boot, "A Stone Alone", which I've also not heard and seems to come
from fairly recent sources........this one sounds way cool as well.....
TRACKLIST-01 Whole Lotta Shakin Going On/02 Say It's Not You/03 Don't/04 Blue Monday/05 Oh What
a Feeling/06 Sing Me Back Home/07 The Nearness Of You/08 Apartment No. 9/09 All I Have to Do Is Dream
/Key to the Highway/11 Worried Life Blues/12 Sing Me Back Home/13 She still Comes Around/14 Apartment N0.9
/15 Sing Me Back Home/16 Worried Life Blues/17 Apartment No. 9/18 Say It's Not You
And finally, buried under a zillion other links from link -God John N, "Live From Chicago park West,
1978"......I don't THINK this one was included in the batch I recently had up, so this may be fresh material for all of us anyway!
TRACKLIST-01 The Big Country/02 Warning Sign/03 The Book I Read/04 Stay Hungry/05 Artists Only/06 The Girls Want to be With the Girls/07 Don't Worry About the Governement/08 The Good Thing/09 Uh-Oh Love Comes/10 Love>>Building on Fire/11 New Feeling/12 Psycho Killer/13 Thank You For Sending me an Angel/14 Take Me to the River
(Scott) Ok, latest blog news is that of COURSE we can overcome THIS bump in the road, Jonder and
Briqn did an INCREDIBLE job of running the blog while I was out of commission, John N. continued to submit literally HUNDREDS of links, which I have yet to sort through (you'll be seeing a bunch of them).....while I was gond the MIGHTY Cliff stepped up with more reggae, even long-time contributors from WAYY back, DaveSez and Andie James (WHERE have you guys been? DO NOT be such strangers!) steppd up and contributed.......I still have some stuff that some bands have sent me that I want to put out there as well, and I REALLY hope that Jon S and Studkid will be bqck, they've been MIA for a while, and they are both tremendous contributors. I know others contributed while I was gone, MD Milner, and Jose and the Spanish Blogger All Star team to name a few.....thanks to you ALL, you've helped ME to understand that a LOT of people DO dig this blog, and some bitch on a hisy fit isn't going to clome close to destroying what we have built here.
My new great friend Madame Angela, is going to be a find addition, I think for a while she will be commenting a lot on stuff like Tori Amos, Melssia Etheridge, Sletater Kinney, etc, but the breadth of her knowledge is FAR greater than that, and she has a wonderful personality/sense of humor/way of speaking that I think will eventually fit right in here. AND I'm crazy sick flipped over her, so gimme a break for a minute!
PLASE Everyone continue to contribute.......Jon S and Studkid, We miss your unique contributions PLEASE come back! this blog is going to get better and MORE diverse in the future.......please don't miss it. I'm damn proud of this blog, and I (as well as my team) SHOULD BE, we do our best, trust me!
A Washington DC Band called Dot Dash sends me a couple of MP3's, there is also a streaming link for their album......as we all know, this is NOT my favorite method, but since I've been away a bit, I'm going to allow it.......
Yes, I've been down for a while........ yes my TEAM has covered my ass....NOW hat is going to happen is that with MYSELF back, my helpers at full strength, sand my new love/helper/assistant Madame Angela whom you all will LOVE, this blog is going NOWHERE but UP!!!!!!!! We strive for unique, sand with all of our magnificent contributors, we achieve it! Don't EVER leave us, we are ALL dedicated to you folks getting the MUSIC YOU LOVE, and that is ALL we care about........see you tomorrow, and the next day and the next.........this is not the end, rather, THIS is the "beginning of a NEW AGE!"
(BRIAN) - Here at Growing Bored, we could not let the passing of Alan Vega go unheralded. So I went back to October 2014 and rescued a Suicide post that Scott did. I also added this video clip here at the beginning. This post has been read over 5000 times, and many of you already have the material, but there's always somebody out there who hasn't heard "Frankie Teardrop" yet! And devoted fans: dig into these live discs if you haven't. I have another one of his solo discs that I'll add to this sometime, but for right now this is a perfect tribute. Fuck, can anyone picture Alan Vega almost making it to eighty????
(ALL LINKS ARE LIVE)
....vocalist Alan Vega and synthesizer/drum machine
whiz Martin Rev treated me to a creepy new sound, one that would influence many others in the future (Ministry and the Raveonnetes come to mind, among others)......went out and bought their debut album the next day, thought it was REALLY great,
my friends were pretty split on it, some loved it, some hated it. Myself, I loved the hypnotic synths and Vega's tortured
vocals on great tracks like "Rocket USA", "Frankie Teardrop", "Cheree" and "Ghostrider".....I'd give it a four star rating at
the time, still sounds good enough to maintain that rating today for my money.
They released a similar album, also titled "Suicide", which is generally referred to as "the second album".....still pretty
good, "Diamonds, Fur Coats, Champagne", the great "Dream Baby Dream", "Radiation" and a couple more would stack up with most
of the first album.
Suicide didn't enjoy a lot of mainstream popularity, and are REALLY forgotten today, sort of strangely, as they were quite
influential......as I was always a fan I do have a fair amount of rarities, these really aren't for dabblers, check the two
official releases before diving headfirst into some of these. "The Rehearsal Tapes" contains no overlap with anything on the
albums, basically it could almost stand independently as an album on its own....."Speedqueen" is quite a cool track
The treasure here though is the rare SIX disc set of live shows, see below for dates, venues, and set lists, again,
DEFINITLEY not for the dabbler, but if you find yourself a new-found fan of the band, or like myself have always enjoyed their unique sound, this is a blessing.
I also happen to have a solo effort by Alan Vega, might as well throw that one out there as well.....from 1985, it's entitled
"Just a Million Dreams".....not too bad, I consider it sort of "Suicide-lite", but the duo of Vega and Rev played off each
other so well, that this comes out as, honestly, fairly mediocre.
Tell me what you think. Perhaps you remember that television performance? Most likely you've heard "Rocket USA" as it appears on many 1970's new wave comps, but they were really so much more than just that one landmark track.....some really fine stuff here, especially some sometimes staggeringly good stuff on the live sets.

(scott)-Oh, I wish I had time to post ten times a day now athat I am back, I DO have a lot of great
plans yet for the future of the blog.....I noticed that in my absence the legend that is DaveSez checked in with some greatness the Scars, and I KNOW Dave Sez loves him some JAM!!!!! Don't know if ya have these Dave, (bet ya do), but a fine John N submission anyway. read the notes and grab theses great discs right up, the Jam were certainly among the greats! SET THE HOUSE ABLAZE!!!!!!
Named after the legend painted on Paul Weller s amp, Fire And Skill is a superb six disc boxed set featuring six previously unreleased concerts, one from each year of The Jam s major-label career.
Starting with an incendiary early gig at London s famous 100 Club from 1977, the show featured took place 10 months after they first played the venue in November 1976, and was recorded for broadcast on American radio ahead of the trio s inaugural visit to US in October 1977 for a six-date tour.
A Music Machine show from 1978, featuring most of the 2nd album This Is The Modern World . The show was The Jam s sixth live show of the year and one of four low-key shows in the capital to fanfare their new News Of The World single under the banner The London Blitz .
Reading University, February 1979 - playing material from their breakthrough album All Mod Cons , was The Jam s first live appearance of 1979, and found the band in a radically different place to their showcase at the Music Machine 12 months before. In that time, their third album, All Mod Cons , had been released to critical acclaim, and their status as one of the New Wave s most musically substantial and exciting bands had been secured. And Weller was still only 20 years old...
Newcastle City Hall October 1980, previewing songs from forthcoming album Sound Affects . In the time between The Jams show at Reading University on Disc 3 and their appearance at Newcastle City Hall 20 months later, there had been more extraordinary developments in the group s world. Setting Sons , their fourth album, had given them a Top 3 hit with The Eton Rifles , which was followed in February 1980 with the stirring Number 1 single, Going Underground . After three years on Polydor, The Jam had finally become the biggest group in the UK.
London s legendary Hammersmith Palais December 1981, part of The Jam s four consecutive nights,
One of the band s final ever gigs at Wembley Arena - 1982. Late in 1982 The Jam announced they were splitting up - there would, though, be a final chance for fans to experience The Jam s astonishing live shows, with a 14-date farewell tour announced for late November and December. The centrepiece was a five-night stand at Wembley Arena, the 10,000-capacity shed next to the London football stadium (the recording here is from the second date), the biggest live venue in the capital.

Not a huge fave of mine, but 999 spit out some decent Britpunk singles ca.late 70's-early 80's.....pretty sure I've not posted this before, so if you are a "999 virgin", well, here's as good a place as any for a deflowering.
999 were originally vocalist/guitarist Nick Cash, vocalist/guitarist Guy Days, bassist Jon Watson, and drummer Pablo DeBritain. Anyway, fans of the fast/furious UK punk singles of the era can rejoice, enjoy this collection, might get something else put up today too.
01 I'm Alive/02 Quite Disappointing/03 Nasty Nasty/04 No Pity/05 Emergency/06 My Street Stinks/07 Me and My Desire/08 Crazy/09 Feelin Alright With this Crew/10 Titanic (My Over) Reaction/11 You Can't Buy Me/12 Waiting/13 Action/14 Homicide/15 Soldier/16 Found Out Too Late/17 Lie Lie Lie/18 Trouble/19 Made a Fool of You/20 Boys In the Gang/21 Brent Cross
For my jack "Emergency" was the best track, but "Nasty Nasty" and some others make this worth a listen......
Forgot all about this one, and I shouldn't have, this is a little-known piece of ass kicking alt/punk/grunge/whatever.......you should like this one, Vanessa Vaselka contributes guitar licks and some often magnificent lyrics (that play perfectly with her pissed off/bored vocals), while Steve Moriarity of the Gits contributes drums........
Good songs here, covering bad love situations, the current USA, and just general "NOT get-down-and-boogie music", which is exactly what I need right now. Check this out if you've not heard it, this one is bad ass, 4 stars all the way, 12 great songs but worth it for "Madonna Whore", "Wearing His Clothes", "Billy Jack and Me'.............aww fuck it they're all great.
Enjoy, sorry I forgot about this gem for so long!

I AM BACK MOTHERFUCKERS AND PREPARE FOR SONIC OVERLOADS FROM BOTH ME AND THE GREATEST BLOGGING TEAM IN THE FUCKING UNIVERSE!
(Scott) one thing I can always say for sure about Jon S, (one of my many favorite submitters) is you NEVER know what he is going to send in.......and, to my memory, he has never once steered me wrong, some incredible submissions, all of which have been phenominal, and most of which have come to me as at least relative unknowns.......so, here is another that I know little about, but for a fact I trust the judgement of Jon S!
Allow me to introduce you to Michael Kiwanuka, if you're not already familiar. His new album Love & Hate is on of the best albums of the year, no hyperbole necessary. Check it out. Also included here is his debut album, Home Again. Enjoy!
Unsure if I've ever posted this before, but I certainly should have, at least when Brian tapped into my old DK's post.......I'm really interested in the response drawn by comics, because, my children, I have a LOT of them.......don't wanna put them up if it's a waste of my time, but I got TONS.....so PLEASE voice your opinion, we DO fucking aim to please round here......I got ALL the "Rock n Roll Comics", all the "classic" underground stuff, "Zap", "Freak Brothers", THOUSANDS more.....let me know, and if this is something popular, we can open another chapter of this blog! I just have to know what you guys want, we be here to fucking SERVE!
Having been induced to nausea by the portion of the Republican Convention that I forced myself to watch, I do come up with an idea......being as the blog has been through a few changes during my absence, ONE has been commented on the most......the header/picture. Jonder was playing around with it and accidentally removed the one that had been there forever, the "hot bitchy looking woman" (one of my favorite things, of course), and replaced it with the multiple Iggy pictures you see now. I've had comments both ways, so I will leave itup to you folks, we'll vote on this like good little Nazis.......do you prefer:
1) The "classic" hot bitchy chick
2) The current Iggy look, OR
3) Something else, which YOU must contribute yourself (anything at all will be considered)
To me it makes no difference, but I think it might be slightly interesting......take the time to vote in the comments section, and we'll tally the results in a week or so......plese remember if you vote "3", you need to contribute the image, for everyone to see and consider.
Got a day off, least part of one, so let us fucking blog like crazy here for a bit.......Madame Angela will be introduced over the weekend, remember she is the love of my life, so please be here to meet her and check out her on music/love/sex/life/religion and lots more, she'll be a WONDERFUL addition. I know I keep saying so, but give me a fucking break I'm a fucking teenager in love.
(scott)-The legend that is Jon S sends a bunch of stuff for your approval.....like I said
yesterday, this guy is nothing if not unpredictable as to his fab submissions, and also has NEVER EVER disappointed. Check below as he submits more R*dioh*ad, and other Jon S-related classics from the likes of Girl Band and the incredible Car Seat Headrest....thanks som much Jon S, much love from the blog your way as always!
Just a quick note on the passing of Dennis Green, Vikings' coach
From John N comes a sprawling six disc-plus set, a career spanning retrospective involving
the aforementioned Tom Petty......lots of stuff here, and if you are already a fan, chances are good you already have a lot of this. I posted some Petty boots a long while back, including the classic video of them performing on the roof of the Don Ceasar Hotel/resort in St. Petersburg Florida, long a favorite vacation spot of mine.
Anyway, lets break down what we do have......th first few links here represent a 75-page book, I assume with a lot of pics (I haven't looked at it yet), but no matter what the quality, certainly bonus material for this massive six-disc sledgehammer.
the first three discs here are more or less "best of" discs, as I said, fans of Petty are 99% sure to have these already, but hey.....maybe you need a newer, cleaner version of (Disc 1)"Breakdown", "American Girl", the super-chaotic "I Need to Know", or "Even the Losers" (these are MY personal faves).
Next is Disc 3, and again, it's more previous releases.....some good stuff though, "Into the Great Wide Open" and "Mary Jane's Last Dance", notably. If one just discovered Petty this morning, these first three discs would be about all you'd ever need.
Now things get interesting. Disc Four "Other Sides", contains live tracks,alternate versions, B-Sides.....all that good stuff. "Trailer" was a B-Side that could have been a fine single, there is a live (wait for it) "Psychotic Reaction", and more tasty rarities.
Disc Five is plenty more rarities, a demo of "Stop Draggin My Heart Around", most interesting (to me) Petty's original band Mudcrutch taking on "Don't Do Me like That", and many more tracks that were new to me.......good stuff here, meets MY approval all day long.
The final (sixth) disc is again a mash up of various rarities, these ones really seem to be
scraping, and far more interesting than listenable, but hey, overall, this is THE ultimate compilation from one of America's true great rock n rollers, Tom Petty. Cats like this deserve to be anthologized properly.
This set absolutely does so for Tom Petty.
Don't forget to check out the book, too, and report back with a review if you get to it before myself!

Pete has been around for a while, and I noticed that when I posted the Dead Kennedy's comic,
Pete requested some "Eerie" or "Creepy" comix/magazines.....can't find any Eerie, but here is a fine handful of Creepy mags.....if you can't read them, you need simply to download CDisplay, it's free and will let you see and read these in a most easy format.
What we have here are issues 1, 2, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, and 20.....hard to find stuff here, happy to offer it up!
Classic memories of an awful childhood (mine), late 60's-early 70's comics and records and novels and marijauna and promiscuous early-teen chicks.....well if it weren't for that stuff,who knows what may have become of me?
Well, as Blue Oyster Cult might say "Wait......there's more".....not sure if this is up Pete's
alley or not, but a close enough companion piece that I'm gonna put it here anyway....about ten issues of the great (non-comic) Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine, also a fave of mine as a lad....lots of classic pics from great and not so great horror films past and present....again, you will need CDisplay to properly view these, very rare and if you remember these from youth and have forgotten about them, you are gonna fucking FREAK
Let me know your thoughts on this type of post......I have (literally) THOUSANDS more of this type of thing, I could list them for you to choose from if there is enough interest.
(Scott) Another super-submission from Jon S, I am myself quite down with TV On the Radio,
I post it not ONLY because of Jon S' incredible track record, but also to indicate my concurence.....don't miss this one please.
I absolutely love TV On The Radio and you should, too. If you don't know them, start with Return To Cookie Mountain or Live At Amoeba Music. You can take it from there.
(Scott)- I want to introduce all of you to not only our newest contributor, but also the true
love of my life Madame Angela.....
Hi everyone. I hope you enjoy my eclectic tastes and views onmusic. Today I give to you two discs of The Singing Bowls of Tibet..,,,,,these are albums of music for healing meditation. On the "Shangri la" disc, a couple of tracks which allegedly can assist with sinus problems.
The (copper) bowls are struck with a wooden rod to extract sound/noise. The rod then is run around the exterior of the bowl, the resulting sound is a result of the varying bowl sizes.
