Green Buzzard

Like this one a good bit, some poppy-alt rock from Australia with some spacey touches thrown in.....quite a good album IMO, see what you think.....a submission from John N. The single "Do You Ever Glow" is quit cool.

Fixing up "Disc 3" of "Fresh Cream"

John N generously breaks down disc 3 of the "Fresh Cream" deluxe reissue.....originally I had trouble with the file for disc 3, John N broke it down to individual MP3's and here they be, in one file......this is important, because in my opinion, this is the superior disc of the three, by far.......so thanks to John N, again, for all the hard work.

Fabio's choice for album of the year (so far)

From Arizona is Goya with their new album "Harvester of Bongloads", and, yes, it's a damn good one, don't
miss.....this is more metallic than a lot of stoner/doom, the result is some era-wrecking loudness........not sure if it'll be album of the year, but it IS a damn agood one, thanks to Fabio for sending!



Bees Made Honey in the Vein Tree

Burnin' Red Ivanhoe, redux

From Zigzagwanderer comes the remaining recordings of Burnin' Red Ivanhoe......I think I have most of
these if not all, and i will recommend them for fans of early 70's prog/rock.......very good stuff, thanks to zigzag for these.

Pure Camomile Jam

All the way from Minsk (2011) come Pure Camomile Jam, a good stoner rock pand with a bit of garage/punky edge to it.......listening to it for the first time in years, but, seriously, this is a good rocking album you wish to hear.



Jay Som

Anxious to hear this one, as last year I thoroughly enjoyed Jay Som's "Turn Into" effort, a top-20 year end effort. Have NOT heard the new one yet, but here's a review. Thanks to John N for sending this our way.

Virtuous though it may be, patience is a difficult quality to capture in guitar rock, a medium that much prefers boldness, concision, and urgency. Perhaps that’s why Bay Area multi-instrumentalist Melina Duterte’s reverence for the human capacity to wait and think and grow comes across as a revelation on Everybody Works, her first official album as Jay Som. “Take time to figure it out,” she advises on lead single “The Bus Song.” In its context, she’s caught between relationship statuses, assuring the object of her fixation that she’ll “be the one who sticks around.” As an introduction to an album full of reminders not to rush things, though, the line is a relief, enough to make you involuntarily exhale.
Bedroom pop is a genre designation that loses meaning by the year—not just as technology creeps closer to erasing any distinction between studio production and home recording, but also as the musicians associated with it develop tastes more varied and less retro than, say, Ariel Pink’s. Twenty-two-year-old Duterte made the fuzzy, dreamy, plaintive aesthetic her own on Turn Into, nine self-recorded tracks she uploaded to Bandcamp on a tipsy whim over a year ago and re-released with Polyvinyl in late 2016, billing the makeshift debut as a collection of “finished and unfinished songs” rather than a proper album. Although she made Everybody Worksalone in her bedroom studio, its repertoire ranges from folk to funk to chart pop. It’s not a bedroom-pop album because it sounds a certain way, but because it feels so intimate. Most of Duterte’s elaborate songs could be mistaken for full-band compositions, yet her preference for writing and recording in solitude imbues each one with an introspective quality.
Liberated from the obligation to conform to any one sound, Duterte investigates new styles with purpose. She’s smitten with Carly Rae Jepsen’s E•MO•TION, and it shows in the hooky choruses of “The Bus Song” and “Remain,” two tracks steeped in exuberant longing. With its smooth keyboards and slinky bass line, “Baybee” comes on like an R&B slow jam, but instead of steaming up the windows, it’s about seducing yourself into seeing your beloved through a rough patch: “If I leave you alone/When you don’t feel right/I know we’ll sink for sure,” Duterte coos on top of the music, like a layer of pure calm. “1 Billion Dogs” submerges anxious lyrics in a cloud of feedback that melds shoegaze, indie pop, and grunge as if it were a forgotten gem from the DGC Rarities compilation.
But the most arresting songs are the ones that defy categorization entirely. The first minute of the album, on “Lipstick Stains,” sounds the way orchestra instruments might upon waking from an afternoon nap, blinking and stretching in the sunlight. When the vocals kick in more than halfway through the track, Duterte’s murmur is just as drowsily blissful: “I like the way your lipstick stains/The corner of my smile,” she breathes. Everybody Workscloses with “For Light,” an epic, seven-minute ballad that transforms a whispered promise—“I’ll be right on time/Open blinds for light/Won’t forget to climb”—into a sing-along prayer by adding in the voices of backup singers. The mood of weary resilience is reminiscent of Nick Cave’s “Push the Sky Away,”another album-closing message of encouragement that fully acknowledges the herculean effort it takes, sometimes, to merely keep going.
As that comparison suggests, Duterte has absorbed more of life’s hard lessons than most of us do by age 22. The patience that suffuses Everybody Works doesn’t reflect the naïveté of a kid who’s sure she has unlimited time to chase her ambitions and find love; it comes out of an emotionally mature view of relationships and the 10 years of work she has already put into her songwriting, taking shitty jobs and enduring family strife to become the musician she is today. “I’ll remain under your moon,” she pledges on “Remain,” an anthem of (perhaps one-sided) commitment. “Everybody Works” registers Duterte’s resentment at how easily success seems to come to the “rock star” who make her wonder, “Did you pay your way through?” But empathy wins out in the end; she makes “everybody works” a mantra, repeating the phrase as though to remind herself of the way other people’s painstaking efforts can be invisible to us.
“All of my songs are so different, but you know it’s me,” Duterte remarked in a recent Pitchfork profile. She’s right, and there’s no better indicator that a songwriter has found her voice than the ability to explore new styles and still sound like the same artist. Just a few years into her adult life, and only one album into her recording career, Melina Duterte has swept past a milestone many musicians never even get in their sights.

From away back in 1993 comes some punk rock craziness from Cows, with "Sexy Pee Story"....I recall this album, vaguely, and it seems like I liked it......gonna hafta check to see if it still sounds good, but it's a John N submittal, so the odd are good it's a winner.

this follow-up to Cunning Stunts showed the Cows hitting their stride, producing another terrific, noisy, clamorous record stuffed to the gills with pure punk rock excitement. Never ones to miss an opportunity for humor, included on this disc is a great cover of "39 Lashes" from Jesus Christ Superstar, lyrics ("1, 2, 3, 4...") included.


A live Miracle Workers set

I've long been a Miracle Workers fan, their keyboard-driven retro-garage rock was always enjoyable.....here's a live set from Eugene Oregon, 1983........I have no specific date and also not set list (listened to the whole thing but didn't write the track names down), but this is a decent sounding and high-energy set from these semi-legendary Portland garage rockers


The Launderettes

From Oslo Norway, ca. 2002, comes the first (VERY good) album from the Launderettes, all-girl garage-pop, "Shaken and Disturbed"
......really rockin' too, "Turn Around" is fab, but "Porn Star", "I Wanna jump Your Bones" and the cover of "Nobody But Me" are worth your while as is most of the album. Only one I ever heard by this outfit, like to hear more if anyone has any of the latter stuff

The Runaways

The Runaways were a tremendously talented band.....that is, if your idea of talent is teenage girls shaking
their denim and leather clad asses.......or if your idea of talent is raccoon eyeliner clad, constantly sneering teenage wannabe nymphs......or if your idea of talent is teen girls getting all hot n sweaty and belting out lyrics like "Come and get it, boys"......in other words, they were MY KIND OF BAND!

Critically hated, but not nearly that bad, they Runaways were a lot of fun with their punk/metal racket and style-over substance personas.....we have four albums here for your approval....the self titled debut, with the infamous "Cherry Bomb"......."Live in Japan", where they were gigantic........"Queens of Noise", with it's cool title track, "Heartbeat", and "Playin' With Fire"......and "Waitin' On the Night", with the rocking "Little Sister", "Wasted", and (especially) "School Days".......they were MUCH more than a joke band (as they are kind of remembered), they were a fucking fab 1970's rock n roll band, and Lita Ford was a goddess.

Anyway, LOVE me some Runaways!

Scott's Son Of Garage-Fuzz Comp Part 10

Here we have the letter "K" in the garage fuzz series #2. I got an interesting email a couple weeks ago from
Hi Scott,
I've read you are looking for the creator of the Fuzz torrents,  well, it's me.

I would hang on to the overlap songs for your personal collection because I removed and replaced a lot of them with better sounding and quality.

It was a labor of love making the torrents and I thank you very much with sharing them with the world.

Feel free to reply if you have any questions about them.

How cool is that? Way appreciative James, you did an incredible job. I also got an email (unfortunately I have deleted) from some tool in one of the bands on Volume 7, I forget which. He was crying that the compilation was no good, and I spelled the name of his fucking band wrong.....what a dope, if your only claim to fame is some 50 year old single, be fucking GRATEFUL, jackass.......anyway, here is volume 10, more to come soon!

SON OF GARAGE FUZZ VOLUME 10-01 KARTUNE KAPERS-Knock On Wood/02 KAVALIERS- Congregation For Anti-Flirts Inc./03 KEITH ALLISON-Action, Action, Action/04 KEITH EVERETT-The Chant/05 KEMPY & THE GUARDIANS-Love For a Price/06 KENNY & THE CASUALS-I'm Not Talking/07 KENSINGTON FOREST-Movin' On/08 KHARMA-NSU/09 KIM FOWLEY-Something New and Different/10 KING FOX-Unforgotten Dreams/11 KINKS-Time Will Tell/12 KNACK-Time Waits For No One/13 KNICKERBOCKERS-High On Love/14 KORDS-Boris the Spider
