- Tracks 81 and 93 are both the same demo version for "The Lifting".
- There's a previous mistake (uncorrected here) with track 87, a live version of "Turn You Inside-Out", which was reported in the entry for In Time: The Best of R.E.M.
- Track 94 (an acoustic live version of "The One I Love") is listed incorrectly. The correct venue is The Museum of Television and Radio on June 8, 2001. The same version can be found on the compilation In Time: The Best of R.E.M. The 2MMM Sydney version is different from both and can be found on Not Bad for No Tour.
- Tracks 100, 101, and 103–109 originated from a lossy source, even in the FLAC version of the release.
- Track 1 ("Funtime") was originally listed as a live version, but is actually a studio recording. It's correctly listed on iTunes now.
- Track 14 ("Shiny Happy People" – Hip Mix) had a silent gap from 0:27 to 0:48. That has been fixed byITUNES and the track is available as a whole now.
- Track 20 was listed as "Orange Crush" (live), but was actually a repeat of "Dark Globe." This has been fixed by iTunes and the mistaken track was replaced by the correct song.

From the Lewdd collection, as if you didn't know by now, comes another batch of Clash bootlegs....as
always, be forewarned that I have by no means listened to all of these, and Lewdd himself advises that the sound quality on these will vary, he keeps ALL of em for archival purposes......fine by me, the readers here can do the same, if they like, or not, but either way, I suspect this is to be the largest collection of Clash concert recordings ever given to mankind.....or, maybe not, too, but I think they are cool, so we will carry on until we get em ALL.......guys, it's THE CLASH......it HAS TO have SOME value!
Got four more of em today, as previously stated, I cannot attest to the sound quality, but, as i said.....it IS The Clash, after all.....

It's been really great that so many appreciate the Carroll post, and that so many remember him and fondly remember his work, no matter how seriously dated it might be, it's still fucking great. What we have for today is as follows....well, fuck.....I had a PDF of "The Basketball Diaries", also an EPUB of "The Basketball Diaries", an EPUB of "The Petting Zoo".....problem is, I cannot get my suck-shit computer to open them (NOT NOT NOT any fault of the submitter)......I am going to keep trying, and thanks to wonderful folks who sent me these, I just right now CANNOT open them (all from Anonymous contributors), I am including a link sent by the EPUB submitter, in case any of you with new-fangeled computers can open them:
If not, sorry, nothing much I can do, I don't know why they don't work for me, I hate shit like this, makes me look fucking stupid, but not the first time, so if it works for you, great,if not, well, I'm still trying......
Sent to us by Petty Vendetta, here is a poetry reading from Patti Smith, should be awesome I would think, and, as a bonus, our pal Zigzagwanderer states (via email) that he has a few others which he will be sending soon.....so cool......for now, please enjoy this one, compliments of Petty Vendetta, and rest assured there are a few more to come.....I seriously hope this works better than the Carroll submissions I've been having problems with......
Full marks to those who helped compile this 3 disc, 50 track compilation of Rockers vibes. The Rockers
style was a more militant, mechanical, and heavier drum style popular in the mid to late 70's created by the great Sly Dunbar.
Although discs 1 & 2 contain some fine, fine tracks for me it is disc 3 that really shines. So if you can't be arsed to listen to all of it just do yourselves a favour and at least listen to the final disc. Whichever you choose to listen I'm sure you'll get into the groove, not one to keep your feet still to. A good mixture of roots rockers and some good cultural messages, too, and some rubba dub tunes.

One of the greats of stoner/doom is The Sword, from Austin Texas.......great stuff here, I've never featured
them that I recall and it is truly about time......They formed in 2003 and currently consist of singer/vocalist John Cronise, guitarist Kyle Shutt, bassist Bryan Richie, and drummer Santiago Vela III....REALLY cool stuff here, slow/sludgy Black Sabbath meets Sleep sort of thing......my personal fave, and I don't think all that many would agree with me, would be the 2006 debut "Age of Winters", it's to me a stunning album, as I said before a near perfect blending of Black Sabbath and Sleep, and one of the all-time great sludgy stoner rockers appears here, the eight minute "Lament For the Aurochs", a fave of mine if not of anyone else's......
"Warp Riders" (2010) is yet another step "forward" in their development, a "serious" conceptual affair based on some science fiction concept that I don't really recall.....the music is once again, harder edged (ie faster, more "rocking" if you will), and this is quite a good one as well. Maybe I was/am a "fan", but I enjoyed this one a hell of a lot upon it's release as well. And, jump for joy, mine is a Japanese edition that contains a bonus track or two.
"Apocryphon" (2012, also a Japanese release with a couple of bonus tracks, check "Hammer Of Heaven", a good one for my money, as if I know anything)......this is an album that you metal/stoner fans will want/need to own, I'm not joking, this is/was a fucking great band (if you like this kind of thing...obviously I do!).
The latest release is from 2015 "High Country".....to be honest, I likely haven't heard it more than once or twice, but I'm sure it is acceptable, I love me some SWORD, they are/were exactly what they set out to be, a grungy, grimy stoner-metal band, and they did it FUCKING well.
Mark Eveleigh? Where you at Dog, I ain't heard from your stoner-rock loving self in a long time.....chances
are good an expert like yourself knows all about these, but if not, this is you brother!
Also included here is a 2007 split with the band Witchcraft......more interesting than listenable, it does include Sword's boneheaded cover of Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song"....why do bands do shit like this? Like the Tootsie Roll Pop conundrum, the world may never know.
Sword is a kick-ass legend of stoner/doom rock......this whole collection IS worth your time, if you love great hard rock.....and if you DON'T......well, why are you here?

The Sword is one band I have always really liked......it's ultra "serious" stuff, but rocks like a motherfucker and if you like sludgy stoner rock, every album here, yes, ALL of them, are stuff you would like to hear. Trust Scott.
(scott) And I do mean COMPLETE......sent to us via link master John N, here are (get this), ONE
HUNDRED AND THIRTY ONE (!) tracks of fab REM great stuff, live, non-LP, TONS of stuff......I am by no way in the world typing ALL of them, BUT I will of course, copy/paste the whole thing......I know we have an REM fan or two here, as we've posted a LOT of REM stuff in the past, (I saw them in Indianapolis, 1995, won the tickets from a local "think they're hip" FM station, but me and the then-wife got front row seats, dinner, and hotel....hard to argue with that....AND, guess who the opening act was???? Fucking Radiohead....it was BEFORE "OK Computer", so it was before they "were" Radiohead, but it was a hell of a show, both bands were fab)......I'm not a HUGE REM fan (I DO like them) but on that night in October 1995 they were on their game for real.......anyway, lotsa cool live fragments here, and other shit as well......that is WHY we are here.......REM fans, rejoice if you don't already have this one, it's pretty awesome, and YOU need to thank the GREAT John N for this monster, it is basically custom madce, for YOU!!!!!
As you may or may not know, I DO love my 70's Krautrock.....AND I am not terribly knowledgeable about it, relative to some other genres (punk, metal, stoner, new wave, nugget rock, etc) with which I am quite familiar.....so every now and again I post one of my Krautrock gems just to keep you honest, Harmonia was a good one, I have but ONE album, their second "Deluxe", which is arguably their best effort.......Harmonis were guitarist Michael Rother of Neu!, as well as Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius of Cluster...I am not TERRIBLY familiar with their entire body of work, but, this, to me, is a fab album, a great remenant of that early-mid 70's Krautrock sound......again, I am no expert, but I DO love this stuff, and I'm certain (you watch) that SOMEONE out there has the whole Harmonia discography, I almost promise you. I hope they share, as I wish more folks would up some MORE classic 70's prog/Krautrock....it's motherfucking great, so why tahe fuck WOULDN'T you?

(scott) This one threw me for a loop, I, for one did not know these existed. What it is, is this is evidently the 25th
year anniversary of My Bloody Valentine's honest-to-God-classic "Loveless", a great album, most would agree.....Studkid submits for us incredible (I assume, haven't heard them yet but cannot wait) cover projects involving that great album....actually two of them......first of all we have "Blue Loveless", an covers collection done by Korean bands:

You have to love stuff like THIS, it's fantastic WITHOUT even hearing it.......once again, I LOOOOVVVVVVEE guest submissions to this blog, they are what makes it what it is, and this one is a great one! Thanks 1000000 times over to Studkid, a great share!
OK, I think everyone understands this, but just in case: when these classic, older albums are released in
multi-disc sets, and I get my mitts on them, I post them without mentioning the band's/album name....I do so to keep anoniminity in play for the bands involved (OK, it's really to buy some time so as many of you peeps as possible can listen)......this is a great album, from the mid-60's......I won't exactly say "WHO" it is, but they are sort of famous, they come from England, they were known for being quite loud, and they had a concert in 1979 that I attended (in Ohio) in which several fans were tragically killed......ok, you know "WHO" it is by now, I can't tell you which album, of course, but I appreciate you visiting "MY" blog, and I hope that this entire "GENERATION" likes this 5 disc reissiue.......a really good one, and I would be remiss if I didn't make note that this came from link-kingpin John N.......please enjoy these, and, as with all reissues of classics such as this, you just may want to act quickly.......ya feel me?

OK, this is one of those times where a band is submitted to this site, with whom I am not at all familiar, but
sounds interesting.....Executive Slacks are described, in general, as an early 80's industrial rock act, John N generously sends us a comp of their "Complete Recordings".....he's a wonderful contributor, really, often, sending things to me with which I am not familiar, or have forgotten about completely (geez, sorry, it happens)......So I carpet-bombed a little of this earlier, and it sounds "different" enough that we should probably share it, it fits the (so-called) format here.....I enjoyed what I listened to, really I did, like a "grandfather" to more modern stuff like NIN or Ministry......maybe not EXACTLY, but, please.....here i8s some more stuff that I am not familiar with, if YOU are, well, you are more in tune than am I, but still......thanks John N for another tremendous share......you are a fantastic help with selecting material to use for this blog, please believe me!

Once again, receive a link from longtime blogger Petty Vendetta, who often helps me out when I post something he can supplement.....I have NOT listened to this, not at all, I am assuming that he is sending more Patti Smith poetry readings as he discussed before.....tremendous, if so, I am eternally grateful.....if it (by some chance) is something else, well, GOOD, he's sending SOMETHING for us, which, no matter what, is ALWAYS a wonderful thing!
Hope all of you had a fine Thanksgiving and got to enjoy quality time with the loved ones. And got to
contemplate when the Vikings will EVER get a fucking quarterback that can throw a fucking football more than ten yards or so, Mr's S. Bradford, T. Bridgewater, and B. Johnson, among others, please take notice.
Anyway here we have some more recorded Patti Smith poetry readings, I haved not checked so there MIGHT be some overlap with previous ones, but I DON'T think so, the titles don't ring a bell.....these come from the stash of longtime blog-friend Zigzagwanderer who often comes through with a rare gem or two......thanks zigzag!

OK,a here is the story behind this. The other day I posted the early-70's krautrock LP from Harmonia "Deluxe"......in response, my longtime good friend Ruben Chandler sent me a link to a site containing "their" discography.......well, another astute reader picked up on the fact that Ruben's link was not actually for "Harmonia", but for "Harmonium", a prog rock band from Canada at EXACTLY the same time in history (early 70's)......ok, so what? Why waste a good link? Haven't listened yet myself, but, hey......here ya go. Certainly early 70's prog-rock has as nearly as much following around here as does early 70's krautrock, certainly they were cousins to say the least, so what the hell? I'm not posting tracklists or anything, but if you've spent your last few years seeking out the Canadian band Harmonium, here are links to most of their stuff (if not all) and we have Ruben Chandler to thank for it!
Well, maybe and maybe not, but one in a while I can be a sucker for this kind of thing, I think I remember
my burnout-metalhead friend Spider talking about these before, several times actually, so I finally got around to checking the Bay for them, in my continued quest to share some rocking tunes with those who might not hear them.......Powerwolf were a German power-metal band in the 00's.....I have not listened to these entirely, but I have carpet-bombed them all, and these rock pretty damn hard, sort of in a retro-Slayer kind of way......if I listened to all of these I might have had my fill of them, but at least on carpet-bomb approach these are at least blog-worthy, some of the metal fans out there certainly will enjoy this, if it is a new discovery, because, as I said, these do rock ear-shreddingly hard, and, when ya go into "metalhead" mode, that is likely the main factor......seriously, I'm not going to give disc-by-disc details, cause I'm not familiar enough, but if you love bone crushing hard metal, today is your lucky day. You're welcome, and at least I know that I for one will wind up keeping these on file, I think they are worth salvaging and documenting as definitive power metal of the era. By the way, English vocals, if you were wondering!

Something SOMEWHAT different for today, got a few more things for today before I shut it down for at least tomorrow (My son Grant is coming to visit me from college, and, well, the Ohio State/Michigan game is Sunday).....so most likely, I'll see you hosers on Sunday as the Vikings already played for this week......worst (or maybe best? depending on your viewpoint?)....be back Monday at the latest!
Are you familiar with the band Curve? A UK alt/electronic duo (Toni Halliday (vocals, "occasional" guitars) and Dean Garcia (bass, guitar, drums).....they remind me a GOOD bit of a USA favorite of mine from several years later, Mommy and Daddy, which as much as I liked Mommy and Daddy, that is certainly a good thing......"Public Fruit" is a compilation release of their early EP's, released prior to their full-lengt release, "Doppleganger".....to my shock, I don't have it OR any of their other stuff, thanks a zillion to the great John N for sending "Public Fruit" and reminding me about them, as this is really good IMO.....
"Public Fruit" compiles the EP's "The Blindfold", "The Frozen" and "The Cherry", all of which were relesed before the previously mentioned debut.....dreamy, hypnotic, rocking, and CERTAINLY a version of Mommy and Daddy YEARS before Mommy and Daddy ever appeared (M&D REALLY ARE a huge fave of mine!)......
OK, here's the deal....I used to have the Curve albums, at least the early ones, I went to post them and it seems they are no longer with me.....be they loaned out and not returned, lost somewhere in a move, or whatever, fact is they aren't there.....I really did like these albums (as I do the fab "Public Fruit", thanks John N), but can ANYONE in the blogosphere help me out with this one? Good albums, good music, if you have them and can send them this way I promise I will share them with everyone......PLEASE help if you can, this is a band whose stuff I really don't want to be without!
PUBLIC FRUIT-01 Ten Little Girls/02 I Speak Your Every Word/03 Blindfold/04 No Escape From Heaven/05 Coast Is Clear/06 The Colour Hurts/07 Frozen/08 Zoo/09 Clipped/10 Die Like a Dog/11 Galaxy/12 Cherry/13 'Faît Accompli Extended Extended Extended'
Again, I'd REALLY appreciate some help with this one, if anyone is able.....I hope in the meantime, you enjoy this EP compilation, it's GREAT also.......trust me, you want one!
John N sends me this one, originally released in 1980...I was totally unfamiliar with this one, never heard of it, despite my age, pre-disposition, etc......anyway, when someone sends me something with which I was not in tune at all, I generally investigate, and this New Zealand band caught me ear......
This kind of odd-ball band sounds most like Public Image Limited or maybe Wire, even the Vibrators at times , neither of which was a band thing......it's odd to me that I haven't been hipped to them in the last 30 years, but you know Scott, behind curve most of the time.......please give this one a listen for me, 80's fans, punk fans, no-wave fans, stuff like that.....this album ("X Features") was released sometime in the late 00's......
Wow....I found a new gem today, ya just never know......please don't give me shit if you know all about this band and shit, bully for you, but I don't, being honest......if you are down with this, and you have more material, well,you KNOW what to do, right?

Been a little while (like a few days) since I've put up any "new" music that I personally consider to be what
the new stuff that hard rock lovers will be listening to for awhile, the trippy, dreamy, semi-hard psych shoegaze (MAN I do love this stuff).......this is the second album from Though Forms, "Songs About Drowning".......really good, the kind of modern shit that at least I personally have been digging on for the last couple years.....if you are a follower of this blog, by now, you know the basic sound quite well, it's kinda hard to describe, but it's a psych/noise rock hybrid that began developing a few years back......and bands like this are where we are now. Like this album a LOT (if my own personal recommendations mean anything to you, I think this is likely year end list material, it's getting late too), I think this is one you really don't want to miss (unless you, like so many others, think I have little clue as to what I speak of, then, I guess, never mind)....I really do like this one though, really good, again, I DO NOT have, nor have I heard, their first album......certainly would love to as this one is really fab. If your tastes (God have mercy one you) run similar to my own, likely you will dig this one as well........really great stuff IMO, btw, a new release, so you never know.....you know how SOME of those modern day bands, who don't quite "get it" operate.....

It is the time of year "give thanks" I suppose....this has been, and is an incredible understantement, a turbulent year for me (like a divorce from a 30 year marriage, falling in love again, my son leaving for college....a LOT of life changes)....but the ONE thing that has REALLY kept me centered, grounded, focused, is this damn blog.....I work hard on this motherfucker, trust me......it's worth it, and I LOVE all the shares that I get, I wish I would receive double that amount, but, and I likely don't do this enough, I would like to wholeheartedly thank Brian, Jonder, Cliff, John N, Jon S, Studkid, Zigzagwanderer, MD Milner, Lewdd, Madame Angela,Petty Vandetta, anyone who has ever made an anonymous contribution, and anyone else who helps make this blog what it is today.....I know I forgot someone, and I'm sorry and they will likely leave me, and it will be my loss/my fault......but really THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU 10000000x over to anyone who has EVER contributed ANYTHING.....YOU, not me, by any means, are what makes this blog work (at least, make it work the way I want it to)....I love sharing the rock n roll that I personally find interesting, and I am usually most happy to share anything anyone sends me (within reason of course).....I love readers (and especially) the contributors here SO much, I could never explain it....I get a thrill/charge when I see in my email that someone has made another great submission, which helps not only the blog, but makes MY quality of life better....I am in a strange place in life right now......good/bad, we will see in the future....but, for now, this blog gives me a focus, a reason to do SOMETHING.......I vow to keep it going as long as people desire.....when they want me to go away (tomorrow? sunday?) say the word, I'm used to it!
Before I stop for today I think I will put up another part of the fab Garage Fuzz series, taken from the
internet a HUGE torrent that is fantastic, simply no other word.....Letter "M" is a "huge" letter, lots of bands here (MC5, Music Machine, The Monkees, fucking GET REAL!).....this set has been quite popular in this format, so I hope you are all enjoying it......damn near FIFTY tracks here (forty something to be techincal), so I guess I need to start listing them.....hope this series is one you are digging, I'm here for YOU after all!
(scott) after posting the very early colleted EP's of the great Curve (John N submission), I realized
that no longer did I have the rest of their full-lengths, which I used to, or at least most of them.....anyway, a few brave souls step up to fill in my (and everyone else's) gaps, so help yourself, should be a ton of good stuff in this stack!
First of all, an Anonymous poster sends this link to another site......sure are a BUNCH of Curve albums here, unsure if all the links are good or not, feel free to try them out (I will when I get home).....the list here begins with stuff from 1992 (the "Pubic Fruit" collection is included) and runs through about 2002.
Open Day At The Hate Fest
The New Adventures of Curve
The Way of Curve
And, finally, a name we haven't heard in a short while, at least, Anonymous Max from the UK! He's got a couple of MORE links to share with us on this fab band:
Well, those ought to keep us busy for a while.....thanks to John N (started the hole thing), Anonymous, Narcosislab, and Anonymous Max from the UK........all tremendous submissions guys, this will certainly replenish MY Curve stash box, for certain!
