Without question, this John N submission is super exciting to me......Arthur Lee/Love is one myall time faves without question, Lee was a genius pure and simple, and Love (the original version, MUCH more than simply "the Arthur Lee band") created my absolute, no question about it favorite album of them all "Forever Changes"......there is NOT a ton of good Love concert recordings from their peak era, they rarely left LA and the shows from that era that I have are not the greatest, sound wise. There are some (surprisingly good) later recordings with Lee and various session men recording sometimes as "Love", sometimes as "Arthur Lee".......those are really quite good, as is the video "Forever Changes" concert, I've posted it before, it's NOT the "real" Love of course, but it sure does sound great, as did everything the late, great Lee put out there for us. He was an odd, reclusive dude, and, as such, perhaps, the most under appreciated of all of the musical geniuses of the rock era.......and the genius label is NOT something I throw around casually.....
So what we got here? Well, four discs of concert recordings of various incarnations of post-"real" Love, but, at the end of the day, I, well, "love" Love, and would be happy with anything I could dig up.
The first disc is "The Seventies"....ok, to be frank, Love was pretty much a done deal by the time the 70's rolled around, however, what we can hear is what we can hear, and I am as grateful as can be for these recordings. Most taken from a UK tour (I wonder if it was Lee's first trip abroad?), it contains some classic Love tracks ("Bummer in the Summer", "My Little Red Book"), while surprisingly, for better or for worse, AVOIDING most of the classic-era material, and instead giving us versions of (technically) post-Love Lee, such as "Good Times" and "Slick Dick", for example, as well as perhaps the only live version of the stunning "August" that I've ever come across (you may recall "August" from the first edition of my "What is Heavy Metal?" project).....
The second disc is compiled of 1990's recordings from various locales, lots of classics, acoustic versions of "A House is Not a Motel", "Hey Joe" (Love did the best (IMO) of the 1000 versions), and the chilling "Signed DC", a disc ending version of the amazing "7 and 7 Is", and I of course wanted to also mention a version of "Five String Seranade", so brilliantly covered later by Mazzy Star.......
The third disc is culled from appearances in the decade of the 2000's......again, various locales, and lots of "Forever Changes" material on this one......hell, you know em all (or you SHOULD), "Live and Let Live" (don't think I have another live take of that one), "The Good humor Man He Sees Everything Like This", "Between Clark and Hilldale", "The Red telephone"......oh GOD I can't wait to listen to these.......and if those weren't enough, there are other classics here such as "A Message to Pretty" and "Stephanie Knows Who"........like I keep saying I haven't even listened to this yet, and I'm already salivating.
The Fourth and final disc is entitled "A Fan's View", which works out to audience recordings....I am not a HUGE fan of such, however, citing the lack of live Love/Lee material, I guess we should be grateful and deal with however the sound quality is, maybe we'll be pleasantly surprised.....interesting, at least, are the fairly high number of tunes from "Four Sail", an almost unknown and stunningly underrated LP......"Robert Montgomery", "Singing Cowboy", a version of "Little Wing" (I've heard Lee sing it before and he at least previously has owned it), "Que Vida", another fave of mine, appears on this one, as does the classic "The Everlasting First".....
Arthur Lee was a musical genius and Love was a tremendous band, as I've said, one of my VERY faves, and, despite what many think, they did NOT fall off the earth after "Forever Changes" ("Four Sail" is in the running for the honor of the most underrated rock album of the era.)....as I said, there is, relative to other bands, at least, stunningly little live music available, and basically NONE from their total slammed out, ahead of their time era.......these will have to do.
Thanks to John N....ANYONE else with ANYTHING unusual from Lee/Love, SEND IT IN STAT! This is a favorite band of mine, a favorite musical persona of mine, and I, well, "Love" them, (ha ha).....
Cannot wait to listen to these, tomorrow at work is going to be awesome!

You GOTTA "Love" this submission, at least I do.....thanks John N, 10000000 times over!
"Double Bind" is the latest release from New Zealand's Trust Punks, just listened yesterday and it's a REALLY good one.....the Bandcamp review serves it well so I'll just include that, and, as always, watch yourself with new releases, you never know how long they may be around.......otherwise, I highly recommend this album, nice dark gloomy post-punk.

(Scott)-Well, how am I not supposed to post THIS ONE? Yet another submission from the deity that is John N, here is a fab two disc set "Psychedelia a 50 Year Trip.......as you may know I fucking LOVE this shit, and this one is stacked with bunch of not-so-commonly comped tracks......this is a must hear/must have for anyone who frequents this place.
I mean, if you don't like psych......well, ...........

OH MY GOD.....it's all I can say. OK, they slipped "In A Gadda Da Vida" in there on us, but that is so EASILLY forgiven for the MOUNTAIN of rare/great/seldomly comped tracks.......I mean, a psych comp with The Edgar Broughton Band? Hawkwind? July? Kippington Lodge? Fucking COME ON.......
Get this one NOW, it's required (I say so, that's who!)....such an amazing collection that I have half a mind to DELETE the fucker in a few days, just to revel in the complaints of the late-comers......of course I WON'T (I'm fucking KIDDING for Christ's sake!), but I really want to drive the point home. John N has come up with a TREMENDOUS submission here (like THAT is something unusual), you owe it to him, to me, to the Gods and Goddesses that rule the rule the universe (see how Madame Angela has influenced my way of thinking? GOD I love her and am so FUCKING LUCKY that our paths crossed when they did) but not fucking around here, you DO want/need this album, it is a TIMELESS FUCKING MASTERWORK!
As ya know, I've been down for a while, but if you think some miserable cunt-bitch can shut this blog down (that was ACTUALLY her fucking intent because she knows how much it means to me), sorry, no way.....I know I still need to wrap up the Elliott Smith thing, and I (believe it or not) have a "Disc 4" in the works of (one of my fave projects ever) the "What Is Heavy Metal?" thing (Oh, shut up, you know my choices are spot-on!)......anyway, I also made a vow to complete this Doors thing, and I will....there is STILL quite a bit left to go, and we'll get there, together........
This is another interview disc (2002 "The Lost Interview Tapes Part 2").......haven't listened, may not, we'll see, these interviews were conducted by Salli Stevenson, there are 41 tracks here, each of which has a "title" so to speak, and there is no fucking way I am typing them all out, sorry. Suffice to say if you are a Dooars fanatic, you'll be digging this as much as the previous stuff......Morrison, no matter what else you want to say about him, was always without question a fascinating interview subject, as I am sure you will continue to see here.
Just once again, thanks to everyone for sticking around while I tried to sort out my personal life, you really don't understand how much this blog means to me......my WORLDS BEST team of helpers kept it alive for me while cunt-bitch attempted to destroy it, but this thing is bigger than me, bigger than you, and certainly bigger than cunt-bitch. I love my readers, and I love my wonderful team of helpers, and I love doing this blog........as long as I am above ground, I intend to keep it here.
THANK YOU ALL, LOVE YOU!
One more thing for today, the comics (thus far) have been quite popular, and without question, I have tons
and tons and tons of them, requests will of course be honored, I know Pete was thrilled that I had some classic "Creepy" issues, and threw in some "Famous Monsters of Filmland" as a bonus......anyway, I got TONS of shit like that, if you wanna request something, if I have it it will be put up, but some of them are so numerous it might take me a couple of days to get it ready....for example, someone asked me about "Dark Shadows", the classic-cult-horror-camp late 1960's goth-soap, it was in comic form for a while when it was popular, and after checking, I see I have maybe 100 issues or so, so it will take me a minute....anyway, it's coming in the next week or so, I will gladly share anything I have, and I have a bit....
For today, NOT by request......as you know if you have been with me for a while, I love literature, I have posted some of my fave books in the past (Vonnegut, Orwell, others), but this is one of my favorite books, I had forgotten it was done in comic format, if you think about it, it is fairly ironic......
One of the greatest novels of them all, Ray Bradbury's incredible anti-censorship statement "Fareneheit 451", works well in comic format......if unfamiliar, it depicts a future in which books/reading are outlawed.......it's an incredible book, and, as with so many brilliant dystopian novels, seems to be coming closer to reality every day....honestly, stuff like this, "The Handmaid's Tale", "Flashback", "1984", etc, become more and more believable every day.
Welcome to the "future"......FUCK it is gonna be UGLY, enjoy it..........
"It was a pleasure to burn" is perhaps the most chilling opening passage to any novel ever.
OK, I was looking at the list of stuff Brian compiled, having to do with the posts I have made, and then, once
the links expired, rarely did I re-up anything.......As always, rethinking and trying to find ways to improve this here blog thing, (I want it to be the worlds BEST ), so my current feeling is this: Although I have many many MANY discs we haven't shared yet, I have to (personally) understand that a hell of a lot of good music has been here, and then expired......hell, I've been bitching about"re-up" requests for year, but, fuck, everyone hasn't been here for years and years.......it takes a minute to realize this, sometimes, but basically here is what I am saying: If there is anything you want to hear, or read, or whatever, please, this is about what YOU want, not about what my selfish notions dictate.......
I guess it just dawned on me as I realize so many people did not even realize the blog's true history, a lot of rare stuff has passed this way.It is not only selfish, but counterproductive to operate in such a manner......so, here is how it be now.......you want to hear something, be it previously posted or just something you've wanted, hit me up........if something from GG Alin or Lilly Allen (cute huh?) or Black Pearl or Black Rose or Black Sabbath or Black Debbeth or Blackfoot or whatever......ask away, I won't even make fun of you anymore.......see, Madame Angela has mellowed my spirit and taught me how to not abuse my fellow man, no matter HOW much fun it is.
OK, to start this "new age" off, my homeboy Spider asked the other day about this one......I THINk I've
posted it before, not sure and don't care enough to go searching, but what we DO have here is a quite interesting 2 disc set, "Guns N Roses Family Tree"....as I'm sure you know, GnR sprung from Hollywood Rose and LA Guns, but there is enough rare shit here that even if you think Guns and Roses suck, you will likely still find this of interest.
Some highlights: First disc, an ancient "Welcome to the Jungle" from parts of Hollywood Rose, "Sex Action" by LA Guns, "Elected" (the Alice Cooper jam) from Duff, Matt, and Steve Jones of the Pistols.....there is also a rare GnR track, "Nice Boys", which I don't think I've ever seen before......this album is a gem, assuming you have SOMETHING of a soft spot for Guns N Roses, to me, they summarized 1980-90's glam-metal better than anyone else was doing it. Guilty pleasure, perhaps, for some of you, but I do dig this album.
here ya go Spider, don't be a stranger you burnout motherfucker you!
DISC 1-01 HOLLYWOOD ROSE-Anything Goes/02 Welcome to the Jungle (Gilby Clarke, Tracii GGuns, Kevin Dubrow)/03 No More Mr Nice Guy (Slash with Roger Daltrey)/04 Sex Action (LA Guns)/05 Sweet Child O Mine (Gilby Clark)/06 Killing Time (Hollywood Rose)/07 Elected (Duff Mckagan, Matt Sorum, Steve Jones,Billy Duffy)/08 My Michelle (LA Guns)/09 It's So Easy (Tracii Guns, Gilby Clark, and Fred Coury (Cinderella)/10 Last Cigarette (Hollywood Rose feat. Teddy ZigZag (Slash's Snakepit)/11 You're Crazy (Gilby Clarke, Tracii Guns, Stevie Ranchelle (Tuff)/12 Nice Boys-(rare track, Guns N Roses, Axl, Slash, Duff, Izzy, and Steven
(Scott)-Last time Cliff submitted something, I was off-line and couldn't say much about it (being off
line at the time)......it was BADASS (Reggae Woman part 2), and now Cliff comes through with some Live "Roots Reggae".......Cliff's submissions are ALWAYS 1000% brilliant, who the hell doesn't love some reggae, especially when presented by an expert like Cliff.......Cliff, I know that for a month or so I couldn't talk to any of my contributors, so let me use this opportunity to tell you that I love all the work you have done for this blog, I hope you NEVER leave me (same as I say to all my other team members), just thanks so much for what you do.........can't wait to hear these tomorrow (along with the Arthur Lee stuff, work MAY be semi-enjoyable tomorrow!).......anyway thanks Cliff, you are one of the true reasons this blog rocks! (Hope all is good health-wise my brother)
Recorded at London's Notting Hill Carnvial in 1983. "Live and Direct" see Aswad in their heyday. They took the best of Jamaican reggae music-it's rhythms, instrument sounds, chord structures, and harmonies-and gave it a British relevance. It may not be the best live reggae album out there but there is something infectuous about it. Aswad had a sweet and soulful reggae sound, which used minor keys, a brass section, and multi-part vocal harmonies that made them a hard sound to resist.
TRACK LIST:-01 Not Guilty/02 Not Satisfied/03 Your Recipe/04 Roots Rocking/05 Drum & bassline/06 African Children/07 Soca Rumba/08 Rocker Medley i) Ease Up ii) Your Love's Got a Hold On Me iii) Revolution iv) Water Pumping/09 Love Fire
MISTY IN ROOTS "Misty Over Sweden" may not quite reach the heights of the best live reggae album ever, their own Live at Counter Eurovision, but it is still up there in the top echelons of live reggae albums. I love Misty in Roots and they played a large part in getting a young white lad in the UK in the late 1970's into reggae. This Captures the band in top form and is taken from 2 gigs in Gothenberg and Linkoping in 1979.
TRACK LIST-01 Misty Jamming/02 Judas Isksariot/03 Time's Getting Harder/04 See Them A Come/05 Ghetto In the City Intro/06 Ghetto In the City/07 Oh Wicked Man/08 Mankind/09 Sodom and Gomorra
BLACK UHURU'S Live '84 must be considered one of the finest examples of live roots reggae available.
TRACK LIST-01 Shine Eye Girl/02 Plastic Smile/03 Puff She Puff/04 I Love King Selassie/05 Youth of Eglington/06 Push Push/07 General Penitentiary/08 Happiness/09 World is Africa/10 Sponji Reggae/11 Sinsemillia/12 Guess Who's Coming to Dinner/13 Abortion
(scott) I think now the entire "World's Greatest Blogger Team" is back at 100% as Studkid and Jon S took brief breaks from the site while I was gone (not to mention Andie James and Dave Sez who took LONG breaks and recently were great enough to re-appear!).......so here is the latest from stoner-metal ace Studkid, check it out and play loud as always with his stuff, I'm familiar with Thou and they fucking rock!
Im back from my vacation, fresh and in a good mood.
(scott) as I said yesterday, I think it's late enough in the game that I should likely start reposting some of my old stuff, not that I'm running low by any means, but late-comers to the fair might have missed some great shit that went by the wayside while they knew not of this wonderful blog's existence.
Hence, Jon S sends in "Saturday Morning Cartoon's Greatest Hits", which I posted here God knows, 4, 5 years ago? It's high time it comes back, too, because there is some great shit on it......I remember writing it up before, and the highlights still ring true-Matthew Sweet's take on "Scooby Doo",( who on earth was EVER better to perform the Scooby Doo song than Matthew Sweet?), basically the same arguement with Liz Phair's "Tra-La-La Song", another perfect artist/material selection (have I ever mentioned that as long as I have a face, Liz Phair will never lack for a place to sit? I have? Well, plan on hearing it more, A LOT MORE, I LOVE LIZ PHAIR!)......oh, where was I? Oh, yeah, the album.....The Ramones fab take on "Spiderman" could have been written to order, Sublime (again, a PERFECT choice) take on "Hong Kong Phooey", and the fab combo of Tonya Donnelly and Juliana Hatfield turn in a stellar "Josie and the Pussycats"........oh my, not only all that but we get Violent Femmes, Sponge, Tripping Daisy.......what in the fuck are you waiting for? If you missed it first time, here IS your chance to redeem yourself!
BTW-am I right or wrong?- I think there was another collection similar to this one, different artists and tunes, but same format......let me look around, that really does ring a bell, but even if, this is the better set, so don't miss!
Catch your attention, did I, with the fab pistols lyric (from "Bodies" of course)?.......I've got about a
metric tonne of Pistols shit, really incredible for a band that released (officially) about 1.5 LP's worth of material......some of these have been posted before, some maybe not, but staying in compliance with my new "it's REALLY OK to repost shit" policy (I wonder why I've stuck so adamantly to that over the years.....and I really, to be honest, have been kind of a prick about it.......oh well, fuck it).
Obviously I don't want to do post here with all (or even NEARLY all) of my Pistols stuff, it would be a LOT of shit repeated over and over, a lot of BAD sounding live shit, some unlistenable demos, etc......but I do think maybe I have a jewel or two in the pile, that you may appreciate......let me go through this (large) stack, and we'll see what looks interesting.
From 1977 and fairly rare is "Party Til You Puke"......incorrectly listed sometimes as a "demo" recording, it is actually simply alternate versions of several of the songs on "Bollocks".....in fact the versions of "Bodies", "New York", "liar" and "EMI (second version)" are the same versions to appear on "Bollocks".....anyway, I wanted to add this quote from the album cover just for fun:
"THE DEMOS -RECORDED 1977 AT WESSEX SOUND, LONDON
HEAR: ROTTEN at his ROTTENEST!
SID at his most VICIOUS!
IT'S NEVER BEEN RELEASED - IT HAD TO ESCAPE BY ITSELF!"
yeah fucking SHOCKING huh?
Ok, let's move on......"Spunk" was rush-released to beat "Bollocks" to the stores, there are various demo versions of some "Bollocks" tracks here, as well as some identical issues....this is/was my brother's album, I recall most of the tracks are titled incorrectly ("Anarchy in the UK" is labeled as "Nookie" (???????).......and more. No idea what that is all about, but there are a few different versions of a couple of them here for those of you that are desperate for some "different' Pistols tracks 40 years after the fact!
A HUGE fave of mine is "Some Product", which features NO MUSIC whatsoever, simply the Pistols being boorish and rude on various radio programs.....sample: Caller: "Do you think Iggy Pop is God?" Johnny: "I think he's an old WANKER"........caller: "Hey, what do you guys think of Kiss? (just asking for it wasn't he?)"....Pistols: "Ahhhh, they suck as well!""They can KISS my ASS!"......fantastic, and if you die before hearing the track entitled "Big Tits Across America", shame on you, it's a life changer!
I'm gonna leave it at that for now......as I said, I have a whole stack of this stuff, maybe 100 discs or so, but it would get FAR too repititious and redundant to post them all, as well a the fact that many of them sound like shit anyway.
So, here's a brief Pistols sort-of rarities selection.......just for fun, but I HIGHLY recommend "Some Product", non-musical as I said, but unparalleled as comedy, it truly is uproarious and if you miss it AGAIN you will be sorry! A great (unintentionally so) album that will have you laughing your ass off.
PARTY TILL YOU PUKE-01 EMI/02 Sub Mission/03 Satellite/04 No Feelings/05 Seventeen (Lazy Sod)/06 Bodies/07 New York/08 Liar/09 EMI (2nd version)/10 Submission (2nd version)
notes- as stated before, tracks 6-9 are indentical to the official releases, the others are different in varying degrees
SPUNK-01 Seventeen/02 Satellite/03 Feelings ( No Feelings)/04 (Just Me) I Wanna Be Me/ 05 Submission/06 Nookie (Anarchy in the UK)/07 No Future (God Save the Queen)/08 Problems/09 Lots of Fun (Pretty Vacant)/10 Liar/11 Who Was it (EMI)/12 New York (Looking For a Kiss)/13 Anarchy in the UK (Denmark Street Demo July 1976)/14 Pretty Vacant (Denmark Street Demo July 1976)/15 No Fun (Unedited Version October 1976)
SOME PRODUCT-01 The Very Name 'Sex Pistols'/02 From Beyond the Grave/03 Big Tits Across America/04 The Complex World of Johnny Rotten/05 Sex Pistols Will Play/06 Is the Queen a Moron?/07 The Fucking Rotter
So I try like fuck to think of different shit to put up here, not always music, cause, hey, that ain't how
I roll, today (like most days actually), I'm thinking PORN, and Penthouse magazine, in it's classic era, was some of my absolute favorite material to masterb......I mean, to look at, when I was a (much) younger man.
So I thought today I'd dump whatevever Penthouse files I may have lying around on ya....I'm not gonna review em all right now (might have to go be by myself for a while and NEVER get em put up), but there may or may not be some famous little tart on her way "up" included here, I don't know.
What else? Seems we also have the 2010 "Pet of the Year" issue (January), let's keep it brief, I'd sure as hell hit it. From 2007, we have the legendary "Letters" collection issue, they were always SO fucking bad ass I can't even describe, oh my, the subjects that I was introduced to via Penthouse "Letters".......
Oh. Again, let me come back to reality. There are a couple of other random issues here, May 2010, the cover girl "Roxanna" could order me to do just about anything, I'll likely dream of licking her boots yet this evening.
There's also from 2007 a classic Penthouse Comic with the great "Libby".......this is great, classic shit,
likely forgotten by everyone but me, but goddamn, in my day, I sure did love me some fucking porn.
Penthouse wasn't quite Hustler, though, and I'll be preparing my ultra-mega-Hustler post soon, ONLY if you are interested. (If you aren't what the fuck?)
(Scott)- Studkid has previously send us some fab works by the incredible Ty Segal, and here is the latest (from both Ty AND Studkid).....I've heard it, it's a good one, so do your self a favor and hear this one.
GOGGS-01 Falling In/02 Shotgun Shooter/03 She Got Harder/04 Smoke the Wurm/05 Goggs/06 Assassinate the Doctor/07 Needle Trade Off/08 Future Nothing/09 Final Notice/10 Glendale Junkyard
IMO Ty Segall may be the most underappreciated rock artist in the world at this moment, just my humble opinion.
Ty Segall seems to form new bands roughly as often as most folks do their laundry. This time its GØGGS, a punk/garage incarnation. This time I bow for the result.
(scott)-The "Cartoons" comp that Jon S submitted for yesterday is a longtime fave of mine, for reasons
I pointed out then, but let me repeat one: The "Scooby Doo" song could have been written to order for Matthew Sweet.....I've long been a fan of Sweet's 1000% pure pop-rock, and (like Jon S, semi-great minds thinking alike?) I've always considered "Girlfriend" to be a tremendous pop-rock classic of it's era, STILL sounds phenominal and timeless, FABULOUS album......(for whatever reason I always really liked the DIFFERENT "Girlfriend"/"Good Friend" tunes, both of which appear here.
Sweet is no one-trick pony though, Jon S has done an incredible job of compiling a highly credible stash of stuff from Sweet's fine career.....look below and see, but this is gold, certainly for fans of Matthew, but even if you are not familiar, and are a fan of achingly pure pop-rock (I don't go "power pop" on his stuff, it's, well, just the BEST in pop-rock. Tremendous submission, thanks Jon S! Also thanks for the "Under the Covers" sets with Susana Hoffs, I was unfamiliar but carpet bombed them today, just tremendous, really!
(scott) and, High on Fire deserve a resurrection.......a longtime hard-stoner-metal fave of mine, God
knows when I posted it, but it's still, in 2016, FUCKING BAD ASS and if you missed it the first time (hell the blog was likely in its infancy) no excuses this time. Great underappreciated stoner metal, please set volume to 11......
(Brian)-When I was clearing out old posts awhile ago, I tried very hard to check every link of a post to see if it was dead. And while I was diligent, there was one post I messed up - IDELETED a High On Fire post Scott had up a long time ago.
HEY anything goes.....actually this one is for me love Madame Angela, she's a comics geek and also
has several other vested interests in this one.......hope everyone else digs it as well, and that everyone realizes when I said I had some bizarre ass comics, I wasn't blowing hot air......I'll gauge the reaction, but if favorable, there are THOUSANDS at my disposal......comics geeks unite, I am loving one (a comics geek) right now, so I may unleash the flood.......let me know your opinions (as always!)
And if you have a request for some (any) bizarre ass comics of the 70's-80's (especially but there are more), please ask away, you REALLY have no idea how much material I am talking about......any faves? Zap? Micky Rat? Freak Brothers? TONS AND TONS of classic R Crumb? Bring it the fuck ON!
(scott) We're going to prep for the weekend with, at least at first, a ton of John N links, he sends me stuff nearly daily, some doesn't fit my ("ahem") format, but he has contributed some incredible, rare, valuable, and just plain musically fantastic albums to this cause and to my personal "worlds greatest CD collection"......he's a great contributor, and often I forget to credit him becauses often his links lap other people's....and that reminds me, this could happen to YOU too, if I forget to credit a submission, it's not personal or deliberate......I just get 100 plus links a day from various sources ( AND READ THIS CAREFULLY: I DONT WANT THEM TO STOP COMING OR EVEN SLOW DOWN).....sometimes I know say, a reggae post is most likely Cliffs, if it were the Monks of Tibet chantting, likely Madame Angela sent it, etc, but John N is so INCREDIBLY diversre with his selections that sometimes I lose track of the corresponding emails. If I forget to give credit, PLEASE let me know (any of you) and We WILL take care of it. Once my divorce is over with, Angie is going to help me get the blog more organized, we BOTH want it to be the best, of them all, and we have a vision.....so things are looking up for the blog, and I for one am glad.
Lets start with a fab album from Electric Orange "Misophonia"......listened to this a few days ago, it's a current release (so you know that means look out and act fast, right?)....a fine step back in time to the fab sounds of 1970's vintage Krautrock, this release (Germany of course) adds a few modern touches and comes up as a tremendous release.....you know the style, the screaming keyboards, the tight rythem section, the long shifting tracks.....this is a winner. I know little about this band, John N says he'll send more for us next week or sometime, this is a really good one, I think.
MISOPHONIA-01 Organized Suffering/02 Bottledrone/03 Demented/04 Misophonia I/05 Shattered/06 Misophonia II/07 Opsis/08 Misophonia III.
Well, I find this tremendous, makes me uncomfortable to listen to, which is (for this type of music) a HUGE compliment (coming from me).....works best listened to as a whole, BUT if you must have a highlight, I'll go with the closer, Misophonia III.
(scott)-Here we have another John N submission, and another new one (2016) for your approval. I thought after listening, that the review sums it up pretty well, so I'll let Bandcamp or whomever it is tell you about it. I REALLY did enjoy it myself, thought it to be pretty great......here's the review:
(scott) John N comes through with another good recent release.....this time from Scottish alt-poppers Kid Canaveral's "Faulty Inner Dialogue".....I AM familiar with them, actually, no joke, my Mom was a fan and hipped me to their stuff, she (Mom) is gone now, but I KNOW she would have loved this disc, and I dedicate it to my gone-but-not forgotten and beloved mother.
Their sound reminds me a bit of an XTC had they been born of Scottland, which is high praise....I know my Mom had a couple singles and an EP or two, as well as the album "Shooting at Wildlife".....well, they may still be in her stuff in Arizona, I'm gonna call her husband and see, but I'm not expecting much......SO if "anyone" (HI JOHN N!) has any of the additional material, bring it out!
FAULTY INNER DIALOGUE-01 Gun Fhaireachdain/02 First We Take Dumbarton/03 Tragic Satellite/04 Ten Milligrams/05 Callous Parting Gift/06 Pail White Flower/07 Lifelong Crisis of Confidence/08 Listen to Me/09 From Your Bright Room/10 Twenty Milligrams/11 Lives Never Lived/12 Reel
Another good NEW album (you know "new"means hurry up, just in case).......MAN my Mom would have liked this one, hope she can hear it wherever she is.
