  • 10/20/16--13:11: Bricklin
  • Seems like of late I've been in a bit of a 1980's/new wave kind of mood, kind of odd since that is my least favorite era of rock n roll, maybe I am changing.......I submit here the only album from Bricklin, from somewhere in Pennsylvania as best as I can tell.......poppish-new wave, VERY typical of the sounds of the era, but not a BAD album, I bet you've never heard it!   Not to bad at all, actually, and if you've enjoyed some of my recent early 80's stuff that I've posted (sort of as a lark, but actually, in retro, some pretty good music, check, on this album for example, "For Her Love", a pretty cool song, and there are other moments here as guys who are a few years younger than the Big Man might have grown up on some of this stuff, I kind of remember this one, but not too clearly until I broke it out, but I will tell ya, it's really a pretty good record.

    BRICKLIN-01 Fear of Life/02 For Her Love/03 Even When You're Done With Me/04 All I Know/05 Love Without Pain/06 If This is Love/07 All You Own/08 She's Not My Girl/09 How Come I/10 The Sleeping Dream

    Every era, every genre, has its unknown albums, which are NOT classics, BUT not everything needs to's wonderful to listen to incredibly dated stuff such as this, it REALLY brings the era back into focus.....we'll see how long I stay in my 80's new wave groove, like all the other eras/scenes I do have a stack of em, we shall always hope ya like the variety.

    (scott) Link-king John N sends us a band that he seems quite fond of (I am nearly totally unfamiliar with them
    other than what I have sampled here). This was, though, from what I've heard, a very good, blues bassed alt-rock band from Norway......let's examine their career in a few parts, as I said, what I have listened to so far has impressed me, let us see what you guys think.

    Their first release was 1999's "Industrial Silence", presented here in deluxe 2-disc edition. John N first introduced me to them as being somewhat "Doors-like", and I find that to be true, in particular the vocals, which are really unique, and the creepy music that kind of looms in the background.....I really enjoyed this album (thus far the only one I've completed, but, yeah, this could be a (much) lattter-day Doors......I like it much, so we'll be investigating all of their stuff slowly. Both discs of this debut are worth your time.

    I'm going to give you another double disc effort too, "The Nightly Disease", which is a somewhat similar effort, but still stacked with some pretty good material......check "City Blues" from disc 2......pretty cool.

    John N sens me interesting stuff, no one could possibly argue's enjoyeable for me to get to know "new" (20 year old!) bands, ones that I missed before.......and THIS is no question one of them. How they weren't at least somewhat big on the US alternative scene I'll never know, bit this is great stuff, and (you know John N), I have a LOT of it to get to you......I'm just gonna spoon feed ya, cause I'm learning, myself, but over the next week or so, we'll have an education on this band. I really do like this, this dude is a vocalist that I think is totally excellent, and the band are no slouches either, let us know what your opinion is!

    (scott)-So did you watch the remade version last night? Why do the EVER remake ANYTHING? Seriously, is there ONE single example of ANYTHING when the remake is superior? No? THEN WHY FUCKING BOTHER?

    Anyway, blog-regular Studkid submits to us the follwoing, let us have a look:

    From the ashes of Tripping Daisy one of favorit pop-psych outfit emerge: Polyphonic Spree. In 2012 they perfomed the show live in London, here it is plus some other of Spree's favorties.

    People can't get enough of this stuff, and who can blame em? Some of the great music of the rock era comes
    from this era/scene imo, NEVER gets old, always rocking and charmingly amatuerish......remember this is a HUG torrent, I have no clue how many parts I'll be breaking it down to (15 or so I would guess), but people love the shit out of this stuff, and that is great.....glad to deliver what the minions desire.........without further ado, here is part Two!

  • 10/21/16--15:25: Newmoon
  • John N sends me so many great, interesting links that it's hard to keep up with him UNDERSTAND THAT I LOVE THIS, THIS IS NOT A PROBLEM, the more stuff I can share with you the better IMO......what we have here is the latest (2016, so you know what THAT means), release from Newmoon, "Space".....and daptly titled it is, spacey/shoegaze psych which I enjoyed in my first listen.......seems like this type of spacey shoegaze stuff has developed quite a following, a LOT of bands putting out this type of music recently. I say: GOOD fucking keep it up, this shit is fab and who knows, in the future, may be looked upon as the "soundtrack" of the era in which we currently live?

  • 10/21/16--15:45: Grobschnitt
  • Grobschnitt  was one of those legenedary krautrock band of the early-mid 70's, I love that music BUT my collection is somewhat lacking.......anyone wanna help out? for Grobschnitt, I have but this single release (it IS a great one), 1978's incredible "Solar Music Live".....a really fab album, of course you need to be a Krautrock fan, but trust me, this one will make your weekend more pleasant......

    Is there anyone out there, in the UK or elsewhere, who has a giant stash of 70's krautrock? Just curious, I'd like a krautrock "go to" submitter, as my collection is "minimal" (probably less than 1000 discs!)....let me know if you wish to be like Cliff (the reggae king) or some of the others.....I love that damn mid-70's krautrock (Jane and Krokodil are my faves, but I love it all) and if you are expert and have a large stash, and want to be part of the team here, PLEASE let me know, this is an area I'd love to venture into, but my stash of material is NOT as great as it could be.

  • 10/21/16--16:09: Gurr
  • OK, last one for today, I don't know if I'll hit you up over the weekend or not, Madame Angela is singing in the finals of the competition she was in last week (and OF COURSE, the Vikings are playing, geez).....anyway, let me give you one more fab album to set your weekend RIGHT......John N (who else?) sends me "In My Head" from Gurr, who are a tremendous chick duo from Germany (certainly you know by now my weakness for chick bands/duos/singers whatever)....

    This is a REALLY good one, I mean "don't miss".......great songs, very well done, yet another one that might just make my year-end list (we'll see)........really well done, sort of Sleater-Kinney-ish, but still REALLY good, this one I recommend you check out, it's damn good!

     IN MY HEAD-01 Breathless/02 #1985/03 Moby Dick/04 Walnuss/05 Yosemite/06 Free/07 Klartraum/08 Rollerskate/09 Diamonds/10 Computer Love/11 Song For Mildred

    Personally I REALLY REALLY liked this one, if any of you are foolish enough to respect my personal opinions on stuff.......really though, I totally DO think this is a bad ass release, never even HEARD OF Gurr, but I've quickly become a fan....excellent album in my estimation

  • 10/22/16--15:53: The Next Batch of Madrugada
  • (scott) I have really liked what I have heard of from this outfit (John N submission, see yesterday)......John N
    originally told me he found them somewhat Doors-like and I can see that, sort of a Doors with the 60's influences removed and replaced by modern-day alt/grunge sensibilities.

    Anyway, next in line are the next batch of releases as I have them.....from 2001, an EP entitled "A Deadend Mind", which also includes an odd "4-track country songs"....not exactly my thing, but rare I'm certain.

    From the next year comes "Grit", (which also contains a selection of bonus singles.) "The Deep End" was the next full length (2005), and believe it or not this is a deluxe edition as well with additional tracks, and finally, for tonight, we have a self-titled effort from 2008......again, let me state my admiration for these, in particular the Doors/Music Machine (I hear them in there too) influence, and I am especially fond of the lyrics as well, in general, hope you all are enjoying THIS series!

    A DEADEND MIND EP-01 A Deadened Mind/02 Vocal (Acoustic Version)/03 View From a Hilltop

  • 10/22/16--16:15: The Last Words
  • Well, I don't know why, but of late I've been feeling a GOOD bit of obscure early 80's new wave, and here is a good one......from Australia comew (one album only? unsure)......The Last Words.......again, typical of the era, walking the thin line, new wave just BARELY wishing it was punk, and it really sounds great......this was a fine album back in it's day, wonder how many recall it.......this is another of those semi-perfect albums that shows off so well the true sounds of that long gone and buried of early 80's new wave/pop? This WILL be for you if you've not heard it.......this is a fine album, one that I've played several times in the last 36 (!) years, Auzzie new wave/punk gets no better.....why they were not better known? Accident of history? Whatever, this is a fine album.

    THE LAST WORDS-01 Walk Away/02 Top Secret/03 My Street of Fire/04 Games/05 Do-It Yourself/06 Semi-Detatched Love/07 Today's Kids/08 Spectacular Times/09 The Stranger/10 It's Alright/11 Every Schoolboy's Dream/12 Never Never Man

  • 10/22/16--16:35: Drugdealer
  • A John N (recent release) of which I have minimal knowledge, obviously the band name intrigues me a bit.....I checked it out and it's pretty much so-so average electronic pop, not bad, actually a bit interesting......strange album, I'm listening to it right now and really don't know what to make of it.......anyway, it's not something you want to run away from, you guys COME HERE for VARIETY in music right ? (at least I hope, that is the whole idea).....

    People send me stuff daily......I may not always recommend it highly (just me personally), but I'll always post it, because I strive to get you guys as many rock sounds as possible.....this one is NOT a fave of mine, really, but I will not advise against download, there are MANY of you who will dig here is Drug Dealer's 2016 album "The End of Comedy"......

    THE END OF COMEDY-01 Far Rockaway Theme/02 The Real World/03 Suddenly/04 Easy To Forget/05 Were You Saying Something/06 Theme For Alessandro/07 It's Only Raining Right Where You're Standing/08 The End of Comedy/09 Sea of Nothing/10 My Life/11 Comedy Outro

    Today, October 24, 1 week before Halloween, marks the 43rd birthday of my favorite witch, and also my favorite smoking hot lover-babe, Madame Angela.....I like birthday posts, I've done a few of them over the years, either posting a person's fave album, or one I know they will like......

    This is a favorite of Angie's, a two-disc Tori Amos set, "To Venus and Back" disc is a fine live set, the other a set of studio work, highly experimental an electronic (for Tori)......I really like this set, especially the live stuff, and Tori Amos is perhaps my love's very favorite......we'll be doing a comprehensive Tori Amos post (with ALL her albums, boots, rarities and the like, somewhat soon, but, of course, those take time and work, but it's coming....

    In the meantime, first of all, I hope you DO enjoy Angie's sort-of eccentric music selections (many seem to, The Singling Bowls, Chanting Monks, and some of the Native American stuff has been hit pretty hard, and she has LOTS of more stuff, relative to her lifestyle and beliefs......for now though, she LOVES some Tori Amos, and I always have as well, though not to the same degree.  This is a good set though, Tori comes through as a dynamic live performer (not exactly her reputation) on the live disc, which has, among other gems, stellar versions of "Cornflake Girl" , "Mr. Zebra", and lots more of her unique song stylings.

    Happy birthday Madame Angela. I love you dearly, thank you for all you have done for me (not least of which includes saving my life) and I so look forward to the rest of our lives together. Consider this post just a small gift in your honor, I hope some of the rest of you like it as well, it's a good one, and for the uninitiated, a warm up for the "BIG" Tori post coming soon(er or later, maybe after layoff, we shall see).

    Happy Birthday Angie, I love you!

    Disc 1 (Venus:Orbiting)-01 Bliss/02 Juarez/03 Concertina/04 Glory of the 80's/05 Lust/06 Suede/07 Josephine/08 Riot Proof/09 Datura/10 Spring Haze/11 1000 Oceans

    You never know what you might find on here, which is the direction I TRY to take the blog in......GOD what a miserable football weekend for a Vikings/Ohio State fan..........uuuuuurrrrrrrr........Cubs/Tribe is like a dream come through World Series though.....who is your pick? I'd favor the Cubs BUT, I just have a feeling they are gonna "pull a Cubs" prediction: Tribe in 7 games.......I love baseball so I welcome all other predictions here......if you get it right I'll fill a request for you or something.......I guess......

  • 10/24/16--12:44: Teenage Fanclub from Jon S
  • (scott) Jon S sends incredible posts on, say, a weekly or twice weekly basis, today he sends me a handful
    and I am not wasting them all in one for today, lets go with an old fave of mine, Teenage Fanclub......somewhat underappreciated for my money,from Scotland,  in fact, the classic "Bandwagonesque" was chosen "Album of the Year" by Spin Magazine, whatever year that it was that it came out......a really good band with quite a varied sound, sort of 1990's post-power pop, pre-grunge kind of thing.......they never really seemed to get it "all" put together after that album, but they certainly did leave a memorable moment or two along the way......personal fave of mine: "The Concept" from "Bandwagonesque".....good song, good album, and HIGHLY under-rated band, here is pretty much the whole story, Jon S-style, meaning, you most likely need to check this out if you are either a fan of the band (for the rarities) or if you are uninititated (because, frankly, your life needs a bit more enrichment!)

    Thanks Jon S, LOVE LOVE LOVE all of your submissions.......thanks 1,000,0000 times over, and that is not enough!

  • 10/24/16--13:07: Grobschnitt Redux!!!
  • (scott) If you recall, last week I posted the only Grobschnitt album I happen to own, and asked for some
    more.....well, TWO regulars came through with a BUNCH of this fab 1970's Krautrock.......I'm gonna say I have not heard all of these.....pretty much, my familiarity ends, more or less, with the album I posted.....BUT first of all, along comes my great pal Ruben Chandler who sent me what seems to be a fairly comprehensive link to pretty much ALL of their work:

    So, compliments of Ruben Chandler, is basically their entire body of work......but ALSO submitted was (looks like also their entire body of work from longtime (VERY LONGTIME, and he KNOWS I APPRECIATE IT, and, I hope he accepts my sincere apologies) zigzagwandaerer, who has them all broken down by albums, with track listings and etc, so it depends on what you wish: The whole discography, or pick and choose, makes me no difference, what matters is HERE is the Grobschnitt I promised, and from what I hear (so far) this is amazing 70's Kraturock, and if you are a fan of that, this is FOR YOU!

  • 10/25/16--14:09: Garage-Fuzz, Part 3
  • These have been quite popular thus far, like I said previously I HAVE posted these before, but likely I did
    not break them down this way......and this way (smaller samples) seems to work better for the listeners/readers.....thus we present 50 or so tracks from "brought to you" by the letter "C".......I know this thing is big and awkward, but there is INCREDIBLE music in this torrent, and, fuck, at least Scott still cares about ya, this is my own post, rather than a submission......anyway, we will get through this whole thing, might take a while, but, some totally badass shit.....and we've got some fab submissions for today also, from Jon S, John N, Cliff, Brian.......what more could you want? The fucking World Series starts tonight, and what am I doing but fucking around with this blog-type thing? Feel loved, as I do it all for YOU!!!!!!!!!!

    To me, this set is stunning......FAR more obscure than the normal "Nuggets" sets (which of course I love as well, NO disrespect intended) I've said before, I don't even remember from where I acquired this monster, but DAMN is this shit the fucking bomb or not? When I originally burned them to disc, I know it took over 15 discs, likely more than that, but this is an incredible set that someone painstakingly compiled, and it is worth every second that they spent.......we are only up to "C" and LOOK at all the amazing, LESSER KNOWN tracks you have already heard......I love this stuff, hope you guys do as well.

    World Series pick? I favor the Tribe (NOT coz I'm from Ohio, I am a longtime Royals fan), because I just have a feeling the Cubs are gonna "pull a Cubs" matter, whomever wins, it will be a long time coming for that franchise/team.....imagine, the Tribe vs. The Cubbies......glad I don't CARE who wins it, as it is a series of historical significance.

    Enjoy the music, and the World Series!

    Black Uhuru was formed by Derrick "Ducky" Simpson in the 1970's.  The band, have  whose name Uhuru is
    Swahili for freedom, have over the years gone through many personnel changes. The first group members were Garth Dennis, Don Carlos, and Derrick "Ducky" Simpson.  Then Carlos left and was replaced by Errol Nelson.  During this period the band released its debut album, "Love Crisis", with a different mix, as "Black Sounds of Freedom". Sandra "Puma" Jones joined the group in 1979 with this new line-up; Rose, Simpson, and Jones, they teamed with drummer Sly Dunbar and bass player Robbie Shakespeare. Together they developed a musical style full of deep bass thumps, sharp keyboards, long instrumentals with guitar riffs, whirly background noises, echoes and the signature "woh oh oh's" creating their classic sound; making them one of the most popular reggae groups in the world.  Red comes from that period and is one of the groups best releases, in my opinion.

    The Dub Factor is one of the most impressive of reggae's electronic-age dub releases.  Bristling from the fine mixing work of Paul "Groucho" Smykle, the album is basically a reworking of  the band's Chill Out release, albeit in often unrecognizeable form.  But if you like your dub with a healthy dose of apocalyptic effects from syndrums, synthesizers, and mixing boards alike, then the Dub Factor will do the trick.

    BLACK SOUNDS OF FREEDOM-Track List: 1.  I love King Salassie/ 2. Satan Army Band/3. Time to Unite/4. Natural Mystic/5.  Eden Out Deh/6.  Love Crisis/ 7. African Love/8. Hard Ground/9. Willow Tree/10. Sorry For the Man



    Track List: 1.  Youth of Englington/2. Sponji Reggae/3. Sistern/4.  Journey/5. Utterance/6. Puff She Puff/7.
    Rockstone/ 8. Carbine



    Track List:  1. Ion Storm 2. Youth  3.Big Spliff/4. Boof N Baff N Biff/5. Puffed Out/6. Android Rebellion/7. Apocalypse/8. Back Breaker/9. Sodom/10. Slaughter

    (Scott) I don't know if I'll get to everything tonight that I wanted to, a few of them may have to wait until tomorrow (I DO try my hardest to get a decent number of posts, original and submitted, up each day, but, well, sometimes the World Series is starting or something, if I slack just a BIT today, I will try to hook you up a bit extra tomorrow.....I have a fresh Brian post here, TONS of Lewdd's boots, lots of stuff from the stashes of Jon S and John still only up to "C" on the garage-fuzz thing....but anyway, I'm gonna have to wrap this up for tonight, wish I could've gotten more stuff up, but so it goes, and I will leave you with (what I expect to be) a GREAT submission from Jah Wobble and Keith Levene, tackling a dub versio of the classic "Metal Box" (Andie James once sent me the original vinyl burns of that album, simply indescribeable, you may check, I don't know if the link is still alive or not, if so, run don't walk)......

    Anyway, sorry for the skimpy output, hopefully I will be a bit more organized tomorrow!

    (scott) Remember that National Lampoon comic, Zimmerman? That was bad ass, I need to see if I can find some scans of that was way cool......anyway, here's another live performance from the legend that is Zimmerman, I think this is the best way to present this.......from just the other day, 10/22/16, so dig up, this may be quite a gem (I haven't heard it yet, Scott is nothing if not honest!) Thanks Jon S for another ass-kicking share.

  • 10/26/16--11:19: Brian's Latest Submission!

  • On my Halloween post, reader PeteREQUESTED some John Carpenter. I'm busy digitizing and uploading some box sets of mine, so I can't get to it now. But what I can offer is a post from another great blog that should satisfy those needs.

    These were posted on the great Egg City Radio 2008! An ancient Wordpress-style site, but all the files are still archived there. They aren't on a file host, but directly on the page.

    Dark Star, Assault On Precinct 13

    Halloween II, Halloween III: Season of the Witch

    They Live, Prince of Darkness, Big Trouble In Little China

    Another good post IFOUND - six volumes of unreleased score excerpts from horror films! Some are duped straight from VHS audio, but given the scarcity of some of the material, it's a treasure trove. I gave the whole thing the headphone test, and it's really cool...

    Egg City is a site that's well worth exploring, some interesting goodies there. And if anyone has a need for more Carpenter, I suggest popping over to and picking up both of his "Lost Themes" albums. Good stuff.
