Stonewall Noise Orchestra

These dudes are bad-ass, trust me on this if you've
never heard of em. They hail from Borlange, Sweden, and have contributed three very great albums (albiet UNKNOWN albums).....perhaps it is my lot in life to bring them a bit of exposure?

Well, first let us review the clever names of the band members.....Vocalist Singe, guitarist Snicken, bassist Jonas, guitarist Jannson, and (wait for it) drummer Mr. Pillow...despite such silliness, I highly recommend these to both stoner and doom/metal fans.....really great shit. They rock REALLY hard, something of a melding of Black Sabbath and maybe Monster Magnet, if you can envision that......and if you can, obviously that is something you'd wish to hear....right?

Well , their first release was the imaginativly titled "Volume 1", which is loaded with excellent hard rock, "Going To Clarksdale", "Evolution?", and "Superfortress" stand out here, but this is truly an overlooked gem.

It would be a couple of years before they'd release the followup, "Constants In an Ever Changing Universe", and it is fucking great. If you are a stoner rock fan you are disservicing yourself if you don't familiar yourself with it...it's a fine piece of hard stoner, worthy of multiple listens, with tracks like "Skyscraper Monument" and "Venus Travel Agency". Fine album. Listen to it.

Their third release was 2010's "Sweet Mississippi Deal", a title which I have no idea to what it alludes, but this is a fine disc as well......argueably the best of the three discs, these guys really HAVE grown, matured, whatever you want to call it, this is an essential disc as well......CRIMINALLY overlooked stoner/metal band. From the opening "Black Cat Bone" to the finale "Interstate", this one rocks like a motherfucker (one of my highest compliments),.....please check these and give some props to the Stonewall Noise Orchestra........I understand they released a fourth CD in 2013, "Salvation", have never heard it and can't seem to "find" it (a job for the great Mark Eveligh?) , but I'm sure it rocks the fuck out as well. Love to hear it should anyone wish to share wit me!

Still cold as a MOTERFUCKER in Ohio, FUCK THIS shit.......MISERABLE. Come on, sometimes the weather gets cold but FUCK it's inhuman the way this past month has been....I am on record as predicting that next week this (January) will be designated as the "coldest month in Ohio history", WATCH because when I am RIGHT as usual I am going to point it out (of course if I am WRONG noone will ever remember my bold prediction anywy, which is why making predictions of ANY KIND is sort of a chicken shit buisness).......anyway: FUCK THE COLD, FUCK THE SNOW, FUCK THE GODDAMN "POLAR VORTEX" or whatever the fuck it is called.....there is a fucking limit to what human beings are supposed to have to tolerate. Fuck, fuck, fuck. That is all. For now at least.

I'll have the links up in a little bit......I really think of all the many "scenes" that I am a fan of and touch on on this blog (say, as an example, 60's pscyh, or 70's punk, or 70's metal, or 90's grunge, or 50 others), the one that is under-appreciated the MOST is modern day (post-2000, roughly) stoner rock......I guess the time just wasn't right for this tremendous blend of psych/metal that at least I had been waiting for for 50 years, so many great unknown bands, many with HUGE catalogues (such as, say Orange Goblin or Fu Manchu or Spiritual Beggars or whomever) that are REALLY great bands, and relatively unknown amongst the mainstream, and bands like Stonewall Noise Orchestra, who are really great as well and equally unknown. If I introduce even ONE new fan to this cool band, great, that's what I HOPE to do......turn rock n roll fans onto some different sounds now and then......rock n roll that I like did not evolve until the mid-60's.....the stuff from the 50's doesn't much get it done for me (other than some of the rockabilly stuff), and there has been great stuff ALL along the way, both famous AND lesser known. Keep an open mind, and an open ear, if you DON'T like some shit I present here, that is great too, at least thanks for listening, and THAT, my loves, is why Baskin-Robbins has 31 fucking flavors, rather than 1. Talk to me about these, and see ya tomorrow with.....well, something! Got a dude planning what sounds like a fucking AWESOME guest post, a multi-part thing with a bunch of stuff from the Washington DC area, covering multiple genres, which sounds awesome, and even if it ISN'T, it is less shit that your hero has to do, and that is important as well.....Anyway, it sounds great, and I hope he comes through with it, and ENCOURAGES some of you other folks to make a comp, or, in lieu of that, do ANYTHING to promote the "community" feel of this less than spectacular blog.......PLEASE, contribute, I will post ANYTHING (almost, homeade comps, rare/unknown discs, "best______ever" collections, but NOT limited to music.....got a cool underground comic book? Some eye popping photography?, Hell, got a good RECIPE to share (it's fucking Super Bowl weekend, after all)?......whatever. You are welcome to use this site as you please, we can be the "facebook" (I didn't capitalize it on PURPOSE, nyah) of the "other people".......and if you know what I mean, you ARE one of the "other people"......if not, well.......
