They could at least just let us just watch the game and stop yapping about who's left to play. Joe Buck is terrible. He even said a week or so ago that he doesn't even watch baseball when he's not working.

I WORSHIP this thread, and already fear I might run it in the ground. I woke up and listened to The Love Below, which one of the neighbor kids gave me when he was throwing out a bunch of stuff.

I am about three years and 350 discs behind between purchasing and listening, but I always move gifts to the head of the line, and this year I made out like a bandit. My wife suggested to people that they buy me discs hearkening back to my youth, so I was thrilled and surprised to receive The Ramones (first disc), The Stooges Raw Power, Velvet Underground Loaded, Lou Reed Berlin, Joni Mitchell Blue, The Jam All Mod Cons, and Clapton 461 Ocean Blvd, none of which I have ever owned. Plus I got new stuff, one of my best bros (don't judge) put together a 5 disc set of songs and bands that he thinks are my faves that he called Exile On Old Street, and I also got new stuff, including the latest discs from Death Cab For Cutie, Ron Sexsmith, My Morning Jacket, The Raconteurs, Elbow, and Sigur Ros. For the icing on the cake, one of my best friends gave me "Same Old Man" by John Hiatt.

I can almost hear Tom saying "So all of your friends hate you?"

I've always thought it would be funny if we lived in a world where a batter would go out to bat and the entire 15-hour Ring Cycle played-- but that no one really saw this as out of place.

I haven't really *always* thought that.  First off, I haven't *always* been alive.  It is a thought that I had a few years ago, though.

I'm listening to me laughing at that image.

It's dorky, but I've always wanted to "do the Ring-Cycle." It's sounds just beautiful, and quite honestly I'm just as interested in the opera as the spectacle of the ring-cycle devotees.

Back in 1983, I saw Richard (oh you probably know him as "Goose" Gossage) trot out to the mound to the strains of Liquid Liquid's "Optimo."  I did a little dance in my seat, and then my mom got mad because I spilled sodey on my pants.  I was surprised ESPN did not include a clip of this in their Yankee Stadium montage during Monday night's HR Derby.

I woke up and listened to The Love Below, which one of the neighbor kids gave me when he was throwing out a bunch of stuff.

dave, you just made me remember something i had almost forgotten! when i was living in austin, i had an upstairs neighbor with whom i'd never actually talked, but we had a very pleasant relationship. we had almost the exact same music taste and so sometimes, when he was playing an album so loudly that it would have been pointless for me to put in my own music to drown him out, i'd put on the exact same album and sync it up with his. after the third time that i did this, he started doing it, too. we probably listened to two or three dozen albums "together" over the course of six months, but we never talked.

anyway, one day i came out of my apartment and there was a giant stack (100?) of CDs sitting on my plant stand. when i came home from work, it was still there. so i put a post-in note on them saying: "do you want these?"

when i got home from the bar that night, they were still there. so i brought them inside and went through them, and they were almost exclusively one hit wonder bands from 1992-96. i knew it was from my friend upstairs, and he was cleaning out his collection and thought i might want to hear some candlebox or soundgarden before he threw them out. i wrote a post-it note that said: "high school. thanks!" and left it where the CDs had been.



i am listening to ming tsai talk about five spice and chocolate, and then i'm going to listen to aden while i work.

You got this exactly right, MOP. I used to assist on shifts on the local college radio station, and I specifically remember that every person that worked there practically worshipped U2 until Sunday Bloody Sunday started playing on MTV, and overnight they became pariahs. We had an advance copy of The Cars debut, it was a big office favorite.....until it got released and they immediately started playing "My Best Friend's Girl" on the local commercial rock station. REM, same story. In my opinion, it's one type of bad thing to like something because all of the tattooed and pierced people do, but it's at least as bad to dislike something because you saw some some hard hat grooving to it. Look to yourself to form your opinions, not to your environment. What are you, 14?

I wonder if "what would your music be as a hitter or as a closer in baseball?" would be one of those sports topics Tom could do without the non-sports fans rebelling.

I brought this up once during a Night On the Town and was accused of putting a "topic" on the "table."

It's a harder question than it looks, though, 'cause figure they'll only play a few seconds of it if you're a hitter, so what four seconds are going to get you the most ready to hit the crap out of a baseball?

I "I like their early work" gambit is one way to avoid blatantly changing the history of what you liked.  Unfortunately, very often a band's early work really is all that's good.

Underrated! Nobody could ever talk about this band without also talking about The Cure and a million other bands that they sound like. But they were still good.

WOAH. I don't want to get too hopeful for this... but... I can't help it... that would be amazing!


There have been all kinds of "allusions" like this since 2001, but I'm not sure it'll happen.  I mean, I think Mangum will release more music, just not under the NMH name.

Until then, there are plenty of other amazing E6 bands to check out.  There is also the Neutral Milk Hotel reunion show bootleg from 2001 in New Zealand (http://false45th.blogspot.com/2007/09/neutral-milk-hotel-last-show.html), which is amazing and seems to be much too overlooked.

That song's great. I actually think the whole album is great. They've got the girl-group sound down pat. The one before is good also, except when the dude in the band sings. Then it just sounded like boring watered down Belle and Sebastian. I think they might have figured that out, and that's why only the chick sings on the newer one.

LOVE the Pastels, though I can kind of understand why other people wouldn't.  "Mobile Safari" is a great album from start to finish.  I even like the jazz-oriented and slightly pretentious "Illumination."

One of my very best friends has a sister, who is also a friend, who has a daughter, who is a passing acquaintance who falls squarely under the heading "seems like a good kid." She's a singer in the praise band for a mega-church somewhere in Florida. She sings on 3 of the 16 songs, and her voice is a beautiful crystalline thing, like bells ringing, with very little affectation in her voice, and the production is phenomenally good for a local band, but almost everything else about the disc is is bad bad bad. I am trying to formulate a strategy to break it to her the next time I see her, which traditionally is at Christmastime. HOOO boy. In one of the songs, a nearly note for note Coldplay rip, the band sings the phrase "Your will is my will" 64 times, at which point the lamest possible rap breaks out.

Someone help me, please.

If it's produced really well, just compliment her/them on that. "it really SOUNDS good!".

you also don't have to say anything about it. were you specifically requested to do a critique? if that's the case, then make a list of strong point and weak points, with suggestion as to how maybe they could improve in those areas.

if they are a young band, they'll mature and get better as they continue working at it. Take a listen to the early Vessel recordings: yeah, you thought back in '78 that a 17-minute vocoder solo was genius, but time has proved otherwise.

You obviously think highly enough of her to compliment her very well without having to bring up the elements you do not care for at all.

I think that young, religious musical groups often find themselves torn between two worlds and it can often be difficult for them to reconcile those two worlds musically ~ particularly considering they also do not have a lot of experience making music even before the weighty social/religious aspects come into play.

Maybe give her a CD by someone like Danielson, Soupjam Stevens or David Bazan.  There's plenty of music that deals with Christian themes without falling victim to the CCM mentality - you know, "if you liked (band from 5 years ago), you'll like (its current inferior Christian equivilent)." But I don't think it necessarily hits the megachurches.

Bonnie played in a praise band, right?  Maybe she'll have something to say about this.

For what this is, I think this is pretty damn good. the production is top-notch, definitely. I actually think that the rap breakdown integrates pretty well into the song. don't get me wrong: it definitely sounds like Top-40 garbage, but that's what they are going for, right?

wow. I just did a search for "christian indie rock" and there is a TON out there (why wouldn't there be?). This band Leeland (http://www.myspace.com/leelandmusic) is actually pretty rockin' (granted they do have a fake Gib Benson AND the kid from Superbad in the band - talk about cred!)

They say the eyes am the windows of the soul
but I love all the little dark holes in your
BODY BAG.
Your little willie, he's oh, so pretty,
And those titties, and those titties in the
BODY BAG.

Nobody knows you and nobody wants to.

Willie's poised to dive into flesh,
Something teils me he will leave a mess in the
BODY BAG.
When we kiss my eyes am closed,
my lips are full, I breathe through my nose in the
BODY BAG.

Nobody knows you and nobody wants to.

See the children play in the mud,
moulding balls of faces and blood from the
BODY BAG.
All preise for corporal flesh;
the smell of love the smell of death from the
BODY BAG..

The Dirtbombs, "Kung Fu."

What would you call something like that? A live-action mashup? Is there an official term for this sort of song?

Well, it's technically a cover of the Curtis Mayfield song Kung Fu, but it's more like the words to that song set to the music of Bela Lugosi's Dead.

I'll have to dig up the Curtis Mayfield.  I have to say I don't really hear the "Bela Lugosi's Dead" connection, but I could never hear the "Smells Like Teen Spirit"/"More Than A Feeling" connection either.

Right now, Gnarls Barkley, "Some Time Soon."

Daily rotation for this shitty station includes Mambo #5, Walking on the Sun, (I just want to) Fly, and the absolute worst "of the 70's, 80's, 90's and today"

But I drop my guns and bring the bouquet
On and on from dusk 'til dawn

Oh oh oh

We can dance all night with the bourgeoisie
Oh oh, oh oh
Lay your love on me
Take a chance on me, take the liberty
Oh oh, oh oh "

Jesus in the mornin'
Jesus in evenin'
Jesus at suppertime

And then this part I'm not sure about, but I think he sings, "When you have Jesus on a cross, you can have Jesus anytime."

Edit: I just listened to the version on mySpace and sussed out the correct lyrics: "When you nail Jesus to the fuckin' cross, you got Jesus all the time." No, they didn't cuss on the version they performed on Pat Duncan's show.

They're definitely broken up, but (as far as I know) there was never an official announcement or point where it definitively happened- they just dropped off the last tour for unrelated reasons and never did anything again. Of course, I hardly have the inside scoop on that.

They're Sonys. Big ones that cover my whole ears, not ear buds. I can't really imagine needing them too much except in this very situation, when I want to listen to one thing and still feel free to move about my home, and everyone else wants to listen to something different. They're pretty okay. Little bit of feedback though.

I can imagine that someday i'll be able to leave my ipod at home, put on tiny, long-range wireless headphones, and mentally shuffle the tracks while I walk around. Am I looking forward to that day? Still not sure.

I had a similar experience with My Bloody Valentine. Lots of my "friends" (I say "friends" because most of them were not such nice people, but for some reason, I hung out with them) in high school were what might be called "shoegazers" and they loved that album.  I never got it.  It wasn't until my freshman year of college that I was riding with friends in a car on some Connecticut back roads (there may or may not have been a "crippler" involved-ahem) and I looked out at the afternoon sun and realized "holy crap, this is so beautiful." I spent months obsessed with that album after that. It just clicked one day.

I don't remember where it was, but that sounds about right.  I'm sure that plenty of gross debauchery took place in that room, but it was the potential for mortal danger that really concerned me.  It was the sort of room where you feel like Anton Chigurh is about to bust in any second (and No Country for Old Men hadn't even come out yet).

MOS: what's RPG?

They're a rock & roll band from Richmond, VA. I love them more than almost anything currently going. I posted a song by them in the "Post one awesome song" thread if you want to hear what they sound like. The song I mentioned here, which is about a break-up, has the following chorus:

Joanne, Joanne
I feel just like the Soviet Union
Do you feel like Afghanistan?

Quote
Beck has been involved in Scientology for most of his life; his wife is also a second-generation Scientologist. Marissa and her twin brother, Giovanni, were delivered by Beck's mother, Bibbe.[62] Beck publicly acknowledged his affiliation with the controversial Church of Scientology for the first time in an interview published in the New York Times Magazine on March 6, 2005. Further confirmation came in an interview with the Irish Sunday Tribune's i Magazine on June 11, 2005, where he was quoted as saying, "Yeah, I'm a Scientologist. My father has been a Scientologist for about 35 years, so I grew up in and around it."

I know the history, but I'm basing my official "embracing" point on the release of Sea Change, where, although he had always been around scientology, he finally dumped his non-scientologist girlfriend via scientologist intervention, made a crappy, over-produced soft-rock album, and jumped the shark whilst inadvertently(?) sending album-cover-designer Jeremy Blake into a paranoid downward spiral that resulted in a crazy-ass double-suicide, then went on tour with the Flaming Lips and got totally upstaged by them.

News to me, very interesting. I saw him a couple of times, good shows and all but I don't own his records or anything. I thought that tune where the percussion section was a bunch of dudes jamming on cutlery was pretty good though.

I saw that cutlery/glassware percussion thing live and it was pretty impressive.  I also liked that it was a funny bit of stagecraft, with the backing band "taking a dinner break" on stage. 

I'm fairly ambivalent about Beck.  It's hard to get excited about him anymore, but that might just be because of the high degree of output.  I liked that album "Guero" a lot, but wasn't crazy about "Sea Change" or "The Information."  And while I like the idea of him working with Danger Mouse, I feel like he's biting on the whole garage/psychedelia revival thing that Terre T (among others) has been championing.

And, in the time it's taken me to write this: Lil' Wayne, "You Cant (Remix)" -> The Tokeleys, "Jonathan Tokeley Parry" -> Lou Reed, "I'm So Free."

I agree with you about the high degree of output, but that's kinda why I prefer albums like Sea Change and Mutations.  They (for the most part) hold back from the usual "garbage-can-face-chewin-on-a-lightbulb" type lyrics, which are at first cool, but after 5 or 6 albums of that, anything which take on a slower, more melodic feeling is in my mind a refreshing break. Granted, he blatantly ripped off Serge Gainsbourg's "Melody" for the song "Paper Tiger" but I'd still rather listen to Sea Change than most other Beck albums these days.

If I hadn't already burnt my discs, I would've included them. Someone else should. I think I put some Spacemen 3 on mine though.  Almost a better band to start with, so that the progression from noisy drone to gospel elements makes sense.

I'm from CT (and [culturally] Jewish), so I consider it my personal right to complain about Lieberman as much as possible. If there was a Lieberman/Lamont rematch anytime in the past year there's no question how it would go. He's sort of a friend of a friend of a friend (the last friend being his ex-wife, but supposedly they're in touch) and everyone says he's just grabbing as much power as he can at this point.

Oh, and I'm currently listening to shitty music probably coming from the upperclassman dorm next to mine. At least they're not having a loud dormwide meeting underneath my window again.

He actually makes a crack about that, and he doesn't talk much, saying something like "Look, it's an acoustic guitar, but I can plug it in." I'm not exactly rushing to the store to pick up his new record, but he was less one-note than the Wallflowers stuff had led me to believe.

Genius is occasionally cool (for example, when I tried it with a New Bomb Turks song I got a mix that included Redd Kross, Richard Hell, Van Halen, and Rage Against The Machine), but for me the whole point of shuffles and mixes is variety - most of the time it just spits up 25 songs from the same general category (for example, every time I try it with GBV I get a totally predictable list of Pavement, Sonic Youth, and YLT songs - all stuff I like, but no real variety).

Right now, I'm in Milwaukee, listening to the most recent archive of WFMU's Night People and wondering whether to go wander around by myself.  Totep and that other fella, PM me quick if you're around!

I was surprised when Genius did a really really good transition (quiet song, quiet then loud song, loud song), but it may have just been a coincidence.

Genius seems to mostly pick out popular/well-liked songs, which is a good way for me to re-listen to stuff I may have overlooked that I already have.

But yeah, it's no Pandora.  Which sadly may not be long for this earth.  It would sure be nice if Apple or Amazon or someone floated some cash to Pandora, Muxtape, and the other cool-but-can't-afford royalties services which must in some way increase sales.  Ah well.

I love Pandora because it seems to be a good mix of actual people classifying and categorizing music, and machines doing their number crunching thing.

It's not another 'throw a crudload of people's music collections at some algorithm' thing.

But as you said, too bad the plug's probly gonna get pulled.

Hi Dave,

The Genius (shudder) feature is part of the new version of iTunes, iTunes 8.0.  So it's part of that software as opposed to being a new iPod feature.  You can use it to generate playlists, which, if you like them, you can send to your iPod.

Is that a real song?  I never knew what that was until an English friend explained it to me w/r/t the fat guy in the British Office.  That shit has disco fries totally beat in the disgusting olympics.

And, just to keep the game going, The Roots, "Lazy Afternoon."

Hah, sadly the 'Scotch Egg' is just a 'wacky' add-on. I don't like eggs but scotch eggs in general aren't too bad, it's just like sausage and eggs with buttery toast in one handy ball.

And who's Von Lmo when he's at home?). Oof, and a second consecutive week for Blood Brothers. Sick.

Yeah, that's how I saw them.  They only played around 30min. and the crowd was pretty thin but Mick won over everyone right off the bat.

I think TV on the Radio is one of the better live acts right now, although the sound last night wasn't the greatest.  I was pretty surprised by the audience this time; when I saw them 2 years ago it was the typical indie crowd but last night there were a lot more frat guys/old rock dudes.

Thanks!  How'd you manage to get an mp3 feed?  A streamrip?  I haven't been able to get a podcast up because the rights issues for what we play are so potentially thorny (even though everything we've played to date has been podsafe).

But enough off-topic inside fantasy baseball!  I'm listening to this:

WFMU's new podcast Tale of the Twelve. It's really good! Lots of obscure ambient and techno, mostly early-to-mid 90s stuff. Only two episodes, so far, but I like it.

It's probably not fair to judge an album based on low-quality .mp3s, but I I agree with Dan B.  I've only listened to it all the way through once so far, but so far it's great.  I am a huge fan of the band, though.

Your list didn't surprise me until I got to Coil.

For traditional American death metal, you can do better than Cannibal Corpse.  I always found their stuff fairly uninspired ~ more a symbol of everthing that was wrong with the genre than anything.  Was always partial to Obituary (http://www.fileden.com/files/2008/10/31/2167766/Obituary%20-%20The%20Best%20Of%20Obituary%20-%2007%20-%20The%20End%20Complete.mp3), personally ~ for their mid-tempo doom grooves and that wicked sounding guitar chord.  (audio link)

Upgrade everything but Oranges & Lemons. That gets my vote for the biggest disparity between what an album's cover promised me the album would sound like and what the album actually sounded like. I still like a few songs on it, especially The Loving, but I really hate how the whole thing is produced.

Upgrade everything but Oranges & Lemons. That gets my vote for the biggest disparity between what an album's cover promised me the album would sound like and what the album actually sounded like. I still like a few songs on it, especially The Loving, but I really hate how the whole thing is produced.

It's my favorite. Skeleton Steps Out, Chalkhills and Children? These are incredible. Also, one of the greatest bass guitar albums of all time. The first six or seven songs are amazing examples of McCartney-style bass melodicism (is that a word?)

Doug Benson's I Love Movies podcast from Jan 26th. It's a funny one.

Why does he say 'Willem Dafoe is a douchebag?' or whatever at the end of every podcast?  I missed the first one.

I don't remember. I think it started off as a riff on the absurdity of him calling Carole Lombard (or Barbara Stanwyck, etc.) a shithead, and evolved from there.

Wes is right, I think.  The songwriting seems up to par, but the sound of it all is sorta unpleasant.  It's really fake-sounding - the drum sounds drive me bonkers.

I work in the state Capitol a couple of days a week. Random, strange events take place here.  Right now, a high school chorus is doing a jazzy little number in the hallway.  The boys are providing a bassy "hmmmmmm" undertone to the celebratory girl's singing.

Wait, right now it took a decidedly Schoenbergian tone.  No wait, it resolved.  Phew.

It's not so much that I didnt like it, I was just shocked by its brevity (26mins?) and lack of finished songs. Obviously, this was a first lesson, and I will give more listens soon. I did listen to 20/20 this week and loved that. Smiley Smile I'm not a fan of. Wild Honey needs more attention too.

I am listening to the new Voss album Moodswinging Volume 2.  He's a local rapper in West Chester.  It's really good and a big improvement on his old albums.

I found an old Hendrix record someone gave me for free a while back

I never listened to it, so I put it on for a spin. Turns out it's some first pressing. I don't think it's worth a lot, but it's still a collector's item so that's cool

Neil Young - Fork in the Road

It's Neil in loud/fast/sloppy mode. Sounds a little thrown-together, but it has company in his discography. Not his best and not in my top 10 Neil albums, but there is some good stuff to be had. The song Johnny Magic is pretty great.

Keep in mind I probably wouldn't have purchased this at all (or at least until I found it used) if Best Buy hadn't had the CD/DVD version on sale for $10.

Thanks to Clay Pigeon for showing me that Grand Funk Railroad actually aren't terrible.


Hell, I could have told you this in 1971 as a clueless 13-year-old, but I bet you wouldn't have listened. T.N.U.C. could be a topic of discussion on the Mike show, and it's an instrumental.


I'll listen.  What else was clueless 13-year-old Dave from Knoxville listening to? 

My initial problem with GFR was that my parents only ever listened E Pluribus Funk and I grew to loathe that album.

Ahhh, it was all the nearly standard stuff, really. I loved Led Zeppelin, The Who, I sorta liked the Stones but I was a little afraid of them, although, strangely, I had no problem with Alice Cooper (to this day I can still play 7 or 8 of the songs on "Love it to Death" on guitar from memory.) I had not found Bowie yet, or T Rex, but I did like Rod Stewart at the time (Every Picture Tells a Story,) and Jethro Tull and Black Sabbath and Yes and Faces, ELP, Santana. I was absolutely obsessed with Blue Oyster Cult (I wore out 2 copies of the debut album, and can't begin to guess how many times I listened to the later Agents of Fortune straight through.) Badfinger. Deep Purple. Zappa. Always lots and lots of Zappa, though I really liked the instrumental bits much more than the vocal silliness, at least until Apostrophe, which is nearly a perfect album. Oh, and Creedence and the Beatles practically everyday.

I just listened to this about a dozen times 4 or 5 weeks ago. I love the lyrics.

Now I am up to Mojo magazine's first of 2 cover discs of the Beatle's "white album". The corresponding Revolver was not so hot. I am just starting this, but I am a little worried.

Different strokes on Ryan Adams. His Cold Roses album is exceptional. I think you could play a similar game with almost any album and any artist, even beloved ones. I can't hear Ted Leo without thinking of Phil Lynott; doesn't disqualify TL for my affection.

I think the key to that segment is the title of it. I would still LOVE to hear Tom spend 5-8 minutes online with the overwhelmingly creepy "music" of Harry Shearer, especially, say, Songs of the Bushmen. Tom's discomfort would be heavenly, I can assure you.

I happen to concur with Tom's opinion on Tom Waits. His music, particularly that run of albums from 1983-1987, is nothing more than warmed over Captain Beefheart, and it's a poor imitation at that.

My first mix of Terry Adams Crazy Trio Live at Skipper's Smokehouse.

I captured about forty (decent quality) minutes of a ninety minute show.

First time I ever tried being a taper/CDer.  Time consuming.

Right this second I am hearing a very playful version of "On The Sunny Side Of The Street".

the 2006-2009 Lazy Magnet box set-- I found out about him through WFMU's On the Download page, and he's pretty incredible. Totally weird stuff that a lot of people won't like at all, but it just really strikes a chord with me for some reason. If you see a copy of "Is Music Even Good?" somewhere, grab it. It's his first (and only?) "proper" album, but it's brilliantly fucked up and bizarre.

A little over a year ago, Jeffry Lewis and his band crashed at my house after they opened for the Mountain Goats in Eugene. I had never met them before nor did I know much about them but I talked to them for a bit at the merch table before the show and again afterward. They said they were looking for a place to crash and they asked if we had floor space. I told them we do but that we lived an hour south of Eugene. They said they were heading south anyway so they came down and stayed. Regardless of what anyone thinks of his music (which I like) I just wanted to say that they were all so incredibly nice. Just top notch.

I had Jeff take this photo of me and his band:

It's actually my first time listening to it and I've listened to it two times through already. It's pleasant, jazz-tinged pop. Musically and lyrically sophisticated. The lead singer sounds a bit like Glenn Tillbrook of Squeeze.

Squeeze is also great. I love the reedy timbre of Tilbrook's voice. Argy Bargy's red hot, and I even like the East Side Story stuff.

I went out yesterday and spent a lot of money I don't have (yet; I got my summer school assignment yesterday, and it's a cash bonanza.) I got the latest Lindsay Buckingham, a Big Star best of, the latest Annuals, Ruth's Anorak, and Modern Skirts' Catalogue of Generous Men. I won't listen to them for months, but the buying felt good. Plus, I got the whole group for just $48 at my local heaven CD shop, the Disc Exchange.

Right now I am listening to All Songs Considered's recap of SXSW. I love that Carrie Brownstein, despite being in the punky Sleater-Kinney, comes across as such a girl.

I'm trying to like it folks. I really am.  But so far, it is not holding a candle to "The Body, The Blood, The Machine."

I saw these cats live a couple of weeks ago, they were so good.  It made me like this album.  Check em out live.

The album cover also reminds me of the Beta Band's least good album.


I felt the same way until I saw them play live a couple of weeks ago.  Check them out if you can.

As I see it, the problem with Big Black is twofold. First, everything from the music to the lyrics sounds contrived. Secondly, if it's abrasiveness and unpleasant aesthetics they're going for, they fail miserably on both counts. I've heard old free jazz records from the 1960's that are far more abrasive and unpleasant sounding than anything Big Black ever recorded. Some people say they like Big Black because they offer a unique insight into the ethos of Middle America. For me, it seems like Steve Albini is just trying to piss people off. I'm just not impressed by them.

Aside from a handful of good songs, they mostly suck.

Oh and now playing:

I think you summarize it pretty well. Plus the business with the drum machine.  How the F are you gonna rock without a human drummer? Might as well go home.

With Shellac, I bought one record and thought: cool, cardboard cover, cool, extra thick vinyl, cool, nice job recording that guitar and those drums. Then I listened to it I think twice.

Talking Heads, though, I do love them. Appreciate them more as I get older, in inverse rock band appreciation manner.

Hey Fredericks, are you still listening to that 89 cent Booker T. and The MG's record? I wish I could find a bargain like that.

Not today Regulator G a little cloudy.

BTW it cost $.79.

GoodWill and Starvation Army are great sources.

Couple a days ago at the Army I picked up a Mozart double album and an old Harry Belafonte on RCA Victor in "New Orthophonic High Fidelity"!

Both for $ .61 (there was a sale).
I felt guilty when I put the change from the dollar in my pocket.

Then I remembered my MG's record and I felt justified.

I'm little concerned about this Orthophonic High Fidelity though.

I've found some good LP's at Half Price Books and the like. Although, they're a little more pricey there. I would like to start collecting vinyl, but it's not cheap. The small collection that I do have is mostly culled from my parent's basement. I have found some good stuff, though. But I guess it's time to trudge through some local Goodwill stores and flea markets.

Thanks for the advice Fredericks. And good call on Tuesday night.

I've found some good LP's at Half Price Books and  like A basement.


Both are fine places. Goodwill cycles stuff through about once a week.  Every once in a while you hit a streak, probably because a music lover died, a dozen good records: clean with (relatively) crisp covers.  Lots of cheese which can be fun-in limited doses- Clay Pigeon knows how to work that stuff.  And, down here at least, freaky gospel albums which burn my fingers as I flip past them.

Talk to people -- I have had people give me stuff because I was interested in albums and to some folks they look like clutter-FOOLS.

When I was young I knew an older guy who was so smart he sold or gave away a several hundred record collection because he put all the music on a handful of reel to reel tapes.

Frequently he'd say something along the lines of "I had that record".  He rarely could find anything on those tapes.
Lesson: Labeling is essential.

Plus he sacrificed  the tactile pleasure of holding, reading, smelling an album cover.

Would Tom call this a weird tear??

Lots of artists most FOT don't care too much about, like Mr. De, Change, Thelma Houston, Rolando, Mulatu Astatke, Theo Parrish, Class Action, Ilija Rudman, Colonel Abrams, Lakeside and Evelyn 'Champagne' King. It's gonna be a lot of late-era disco, rare grooves, the odd 91-94 hiphop track, might even throw some chicha into the mix.

I work for a company that builds those annoying automated agents that you deal with when you call a company (you know, the ones where you scream "AGENT" to talk to a person). My job is to make them easier to use. I direct the voice talents, write the prompts, etc.

Right now, I am listening to recordings of people calling into one of our applications.  There is definitely some colorful turlet talk.

One of the more infamous call recordings: Our automated agent helps this guy get his cable TV working again. "She" asks at the end of the call, "Now did that solve the problem?"  The guy responded by saying: "Hmm! Thanks robot bitch!"

I work for a company that builds those annoying automated agents that you deal with when you call a company (you know, the ones where you scream "AGENT" to talk to a person). My job is to make them easier to use. I direct the voice talents, write the prompts, etc.

Right now, I am listening to recordings of people calling into one of our applications.  There is definitely some colorful turlet talk.

One of the more infamous call recordings: Our automated agent helps this guy get his cable TV working again. "She" asks at the end of the call, "Now did that solve the problem?"  The guy responded by saying: "Hmm! Thanks robot bitch!"

That's hysterical. I would pay very good money for a collection of such audio.

Nice job Grote.

Thanks, Fredericks.  Keep listening!

Streaming on NPR. It's pretty good. Dave Longstreth's voice is a bit grating, though.


Who are they?

Which one's Dave?

The album is Bitte Orca by the band Dirty Projectors. Dave Longstreth is the band's lead singer and the two girls on the cover are two members of the band. They "reinterpreted" Damaged by Black Flag a few years ago.

No. But he did criticize Obama for using his middle name 'Hussein.' The reason being that he and other fellow right wingers, in his words, were criticized when they said the name Barack Hussein Obama during the campaign. Of course, what he failed to mention is that when the RW's used his full name, they intended 'Hussein' to be a pejorative.

Oh and he also said that Obama is no Ronald Reagan.

If I had the middle name 'Hussein', best believe I'd be using it all the time. Especially in the middle of my more English than bad teeth and horrible cuisine name. That would rock so much.

No need to apologize, TRG - I never listen to them as works on their own, just when they come up at random on the iPod.

His banter from Alive! and Alive II is the gold standard for StanleyBanter anyway.  I just find the collections amusing - it's good to hear Paul Stanley try to get Stockholm rocking between Neutral Milk Hotel tracks and Radiohead outtakes.

It's Ethiopian pop music. The album came out in 1986 and is a compilation of stuff he did in the late 1970's. According to Down Beat magazine, he "...sometimes evokes a Muslim James Brown."

It's pretty great, you should check it out Fredericks. They reissued the album as part of the Ethiopiques compilation series.

Check out Sharrock's "Ask The Ages" to hear the two of them reunited years later.  First time I ever did a radio show I played stuff off both those records.

I have a copy of Ask The Ages and it is indeed great. A lot of people only know Pharoah Sanders for the album, "Karma," but I think he made a few albums that were better. "Tauhid" is one of them. 'Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt,' in particular, is just fantastic.

As far as jazz guitarists go Sonny Sharrock, James Blood Ulmer, and Pete Cosey are all good.

There ought to be a copy of Ask The Ages in every home. Sonny Sharrock was a genius. It's a shame his life was cut short.

If you like Sonny Sharrock also check out some of these albums he appeared on:

"Eternal Rhythm" by Don Cherry
"Tauhid" by Pharoah Sanders
"Super Nova" by Wayne Shorter
"A Tribute to Jack Johnson" by Miles Davis (specifically the second track "Yesternow" where he's absolutely killer)
"Black Woman" by Sonny and Linda Sharrock
"Guitar" by Sonny Sharrock

They're all great albums.

Also, his work with Last Exit is good (depending on your tolerance for free jazz).

I don't think he does anymore.  But we're not short of Momus' writings.  His blog and articles are generally very good. 

Message boards like ilx intimidate the heck out of me, but I do periodically scan it for people's "Best Albums" lists.  Maybe I should give it another go.

By the way, Momus is really uneven as a musician--he has a lot of duds mixed in with his occasional pop gems--but this album and Ocky Milk are really good.

Why thank you!  I have to admit I'm a dilettante.  I have a ton of Miles Davis mp3s, many of them from the 70s fusion period, but mostly I just grab interesting-looking records from the flea market (actually my wife found this one).  The other really great one we found is this, a few months ago:

Not a flea market find, but a recent download.  I just learned that she's the daughter of Don Cherry, is (or at least was) married to a member of The Pop Group, and was a backup singer and stage dancer for The Slits.  I remember in 1989, after 2-3 years of being a hardcore kid, I decided to just give in and bought the cassingle for "Buffalo Stance."  Little did I know that I was remaining a music snob!

It does have that late 80s-early 90s hip-hop overproduction thing going, but it's still pretty great.

The lead singer in "Run, Runaway."  The guy on the left.  He's apparently had a head start on the hard livin'.

Dave, I know you're sensitive to guys looking old, but you can't tell me that the guy on the left doesn't look way more than 3 years older than the guy on the right.

It looks like his grandfather went out and got a perm and wormed his way into the band photo.

Wasn't Mick Mars from Motley Crue in his 40s when the rest of them were in their 20s? Hiring an old guy is a rock and roll tradition (or, in the case of the Queers, having one old guy who was part of the original line-up).

this R.O.Manse album, on AST Records.

Anyone heard this? I put a song up on the blog (http://areyougenehackman.blogspot.com/2009/06/give-it-to-me-andrew-ridgeley.html).

I'm usually pretty wary of "comedy music", but this is pretty good.

Those guys opened for Dinosaur Jr., when I saw them, earlier this year.

I thought they had a powerful psychedelic, southern gothic feel.

Just a little creepy. I like that.

I stood in line, I had to wait

I'm with you, buffcoat.

Still, ON FIRE is a pretty terrific record. The three-song run of "Snowstorm", "Strange" and "When Will You Come Home" is great, and I'm not ashamed to say I like their version of "Isn't It a Pity" more than EITHER of George Harrison's.

Oh, and I've been listening to this a lot lately:

Dave, I'm young and I don't get it. I understand what the band is attempting to do, it just bores the hell out of me. But hey, Kevin Shields is supposed to be a genius. Who am I to question him?

I didn't like the album when I first heard it and would revisit it from time to time to make sure I hadn't missed something but would always walk away scratching my head. Then, for some reason, I played it again last summer and finally "got" it. Now I can't stop listening to it.

I like the inter-track interludes better than the actual songs. It does seem like a fluke, b/c the stuff they did before it wasn't so great, and then they spent longer than Axl Rose coming up with a follow-up.

Although both were considered shoegazer, I don't see much in common between Swervedriver and My Bloody Valentine. Swervedriver were a real rock band, definitely the most rock of that genre (especially if you're listening to Mezcal Head). MBV (or at least Loveless) is pretty much ambient music. Most of its thrills are textural.

Loveless is pretty unapproachable if you're not already on board with My Bloody Valentine. (Except for When You Sleep, which is instantaneous (to me))

If you just HAVE TO get into My Bloody Valentine, their earlier record, Isn't Anything is a lot better.

It's the debut LP by this new band from Chicago, the Smith Westerns out on Hozac Records. www.myspace.com/smithwesterns

This thing I made while desperately trying to teach myself sound editing so I can teach it tomorrow.  It came out pretty well!  I looped a 15-second bit of Steve Reich piano and put it underneath a recording of Anne Carson reading one of her poems, and then just played with the mix.  It actually took me longer to figure out that I didn't necessarily need to convert it to .mp3 than it did to actually make the thing.

Good call. The Woods might be my favorite of their albums. It has this real tight, together, feel to it. It sounds more like a complete package than their other ones. That and there's some blazing guitar work on it. Not trying to bad mouth their other records, bu The Woods is just that much better.

Because I love tooting my own horn, I met those dudes and did an interview (that was short and pretty lame, with awful audio quality) w/ Ryan (the dude in the hat) about a month ago.



then post a link, you kook.


Looking for a place to host, and seriously, the audio quality is terrible. I wasn't 100% sure how to properly use the recorder I had. WaWa records releases probably have a higher fidelity.

I am also pretty into these guys right now.  The live show is pretty different from the sound of the record, I think; I wonder if the next record will be more like they sound live or if they'll maintain that margin.  Either way, I'm in.

Oh, and...

Yea, Ronnie Dawson was great as well.  I think Wayne Hancock poached Ronnie's guitar player after that.  At any rate, I didn't make it through the whole album (too much clarinet for crying out loud) so now I'm on to the the Hi-Fives.

It's all songs the cramps covered or were influenced by and it's 56 tracks for 12 credits. And you get great stuff like The Sparkles "Hipsville 29BC" which is one of the greatest garage recordings ever for my money.

That's a great deal Hugman, thanks.  They also have mega-comps like The Complete Stax/Volt Soul Singles, where I was getting them piecemeal -- just using my last 5 unused downloads or whatever and taking a year to get a single disc -- but now I'm going to take advantage of the 12 credits thing.  It's the only thing that makes eMusic worthwhile.

But do they really want 12 credits for an 8-song record?

Thats tough, both are high up on my list, GWS is much better produced, but Pod has songs on it that move my soul in mysterious ways, like demon sweat and dont sweat it.  Both albums come from an era of Ween that I dont think anyone could recreate and get away with it.

I'm partial to GWS but I agree that there are some gems on Pod. I like Sketches of Winkle and Dr. Rock a lot. I think that Pod has a better story behind it though with the scotch gaurd mask and all but Tick, Up on a Hill, LMLYP, plus chainsaw solo, Pink Floyd samples. GWS wins but not by much. Are you on the Ween forum? My friend keeps trying to get me to join, I've been avoiding it because I didn't want to put up with uber music snob... so I joined this forum instead.

So 2007, but whatever. I love this album. One of the best (if not the best) Kate Bush cover I've ever heard.

You inspired me to listen to this.  Like many casual fans, I have Dirty Deeds, but I only hear it when one of the 9 songs comes up on the iPod.  Some of his stuff is really good.  I like "Ain't No Fun (Waiting Around to be a Millionaire)."

im best friends with the format gang and it was decided that nate wrote his best songs when some crazy girl fucked with his emotions, resulting in a trainwreck of drinking and sadness. 

also, living in phoenix didnt help.  the move to new york and the collaboration with the other parts that make up fun. probably brought this to the next level that the format could have gone, for what it's worth.

Sigh. The (500) Days of Summer soundtrack is pretty lovey-dovey and nice. I absolutely adore Regina Spektor's "Us."

Interviews. Talk talk talk. I'm transcribing a bunch of interviews for a research project. It's taking me forever, I totally underestimated just how tedious it is. Ten interviews with journalists, roughly one hour each. Talk talk talk. Murder me.

cocktail attire is pretty fancy.  you'll want to dress it up a little or you'll be completely uncomfortable, I'm thinking.

"Cocktail attire" means a tuxedo for men, if it's an evening event.  If I were a woman I'd wear a "little black dress" plus a shawl if that felt too revealing. 

I have an opinion on everything!

I found the album, and a handful of live tracks and some tracks from singles, online a few years ago. I have yet to actually find proper copies of the singles though. The ones I got seemed to only have a-sides from the actual 45s that were released 30 years ago.

That's real awesome from 0:00, but it is a fun visual effect in the second song. I remember seeing this when it first aired. I wonder who the band members were? Was that Earl Slick? And that bass player, despite the occasional disco-y lick that was popular in the day, is fantastic.

it's an odd period in bowie history, 1979, after lodger but before scary monsters. he wasn't touring in this period (from 1979-1983) so this band was hired for this appearance or a set of appearances or something. thus it might not even be his regular players like earl slick.

i do know that his backup singers are joey arias and cult icon klaus nomi though

Isn't that Carlos Alomar on guitar, and there's no reason why it couldn't be George Murray on bass?  I dunno, it sounds like the band that played on Station to Station to me, slightly different arrangement.

I wasn't that big a fan of SUMMER SUN when it came out; it seemed like AND THEN NOTHING TURNED ITSELF INSIDE OUT, Pt. 2, but without the catharsis of a "Cherry Chapstick" to liven things up. I like the record now - it's great nightime/wintertime listening. It still wouldn't make my top 5 YLT albums, though.

My friends and I used to have eating competitions at Ryan's in my late teens and early 20s.  We would eat enough so that we would have to go back to the house and just lie there for an hour.  It was awful.  And so American.  I say that with pride.

First listen to this one and I'm liking it a lot.

Plus I just found out they're playing on the Jay Reatard/NoBunny show I'm going to next month.


They're a blast live. I have been listening to Alice and Friends and Lemons by Ty Segall almost non-stop for the last few weeks. Gonerfest!


Goner6fest, indeed.  it's a shame The Clean had to cancel; despite that, i love this year's lineup.

Yeah, I was disappointed about The Clean cancellation. I listened to their Anthology with bated breath until their US cancellations. I think Golden Triangle also backed out (saw them a few times with King Khan and the Shrines--they were a lot of fun). I think CoCoComa are filling for them, so that's nothing to complain about.

It is a killer lineup. I am extremely excited about seeing at least 2 bands each day. I saw Davila 666 at the Hi Tone a couple weeks ago--wow, they were a bundle of energy. I was also lucky enough to see the Compulsive Gamblers last weekend at the Antenna Club reunion and they were great as expected. Magic Kids and Useless Eaters are two excellent Memphis bands. I haven't seen Thee Oh Sees before and somehow, I've never been to a Reatards show. I have heard a lot of good things about Sonic Chicken 4 as well. In conclusion, Gonerfest!

creekmore_banks, are you in memphis?

Yes. Yes, I am. As a matter of fact, my name here is stolen from one of the Earles/Jensen characters.

Technically, I am separated most of the day by the Mississippi River about 10 minutes away in WM, but all of my time away from the apartment/work is spent in Memphis. I'm a self-identified Memphis resident. God bless Memphis--publicly humiliated on a weekly basis, but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

I think Eric O put it best in an interview from several years ago when someone asked him what Memphis was like:

"Memphis is Memphis. It's fucked up and great, and fucked up and terrible. It's dirty water and soul. High crime and great gangsta rap. Fried chicken and the best barbecue ribs & sandwiches (pork, not beef) in the world. Sometimes I gotta get out, sometimes I can't believe I'm lucky to be here. The river, the music, the food. The heat."

Indeed.

I didn't realize there was a fellow FOT in Memphis---I think I remember hearing that Tom came to Gonerfest a few years ago. I heard him plug the fundraiser for Zac's daughter a few months ago. The fellow from Knoxville calls in pretty regularly, but I don't remember any Memphis calls lately.

As for the Antenna reunion, it was pretty much as much fun as you imagined. Sorry.

30-something days until Gonerfest. Huzzah!

the two jakes from Jump Back Jake are on the board, but i dont think theyve ever called in.  we're out there. 

of course, Eric O is right.  Jay Reatard i think tops off that description very well by describing Memphis as a vortex- youre always broke, youre always down, but you stick it out because theres nowhere else like it.  (more or less what he said- i cant find the video to properly quote him)

but here's another video that begins on an interesting note about memphis:

My 2 favorite Beefheart LPs are Clear Spot and Safe as Milk. I think Trout Mask is pretty unlistenable, as is Lick My Decals Off, Baby. I have no idea how TMR was chosen as the "classic" Beefheart LP.

Trout Mask has some funny, quotable lines.  Like all of Orange Claw Hammer.  I'm sure it's fun to listen to on "grass."

Post by: nec13 on August 23, 2009, 04:11:36 PM
Geez, I forgot Clear Spot. That is a good album.

Regarding TMR, I think its status as a classic may have something to do with the number of critics and musicians that have championed it over the years. I think Lester Bangs said that it was the greatest album ever made. But I don't believe it's any great piece of art. It sounds pretentious and mostly unlistenable to me.

Although, the same could be said for LMDOB. I like it though.

Try Clear Spot. It's much more "normal," even 70s-rock sounding (produced by Ted Templeman of Van Halen & Montrose fame) but it retains the edge of Beefheartian weirdness.

Pretty sure, it's a known fact that it was the Mothers on The Blimp.  It's a Frank Zappa backing track.
The story goes, Frank was sitting around the studio working on a Mothers' track while Beefheart phoned it in, and Frank just laid it over the Mother's track.  That's according to the 33 1/3 book on the making of TMR.

I've really getting into depressing/dark female singer songwriters the past couple years, and this is easily one of my favorite of the genre. The only not-so-hot song on the album is the single, which just doesn't sound like the rest of the album. I can't believe I forgot this in my "best of the decade" list.

I mean, I'm a blur fanatic. I love pretty much all their albums in different ways. Obviously it's a bit different due to Coxon being axed but...like all their albums, it's got it's ups and downs. But I still will take blur over any other Britpop any day of the week.

I mean, I can understand that. I just find it an interesting progression for the band, and I do enjoy the music. I feel like it's not exactly the same type of singing as previous blur albums, but still there's plenty there I'd say. Ah, it is what it is!

Yeah, Phoenix is pretty good. I heard 1901 on a Cadillac commercial a few nights ago.

I'm listening to the Volcano Choir album, UNMAP. It's Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) singing, a lot of times incoherently, and just making noises over instrumentals by the band Collections of Colonies of Bees. It's been great the past few days for listening to while doing homework because it's just very solid abstract, ambient, experimental music. You can listen to it free at NPR First Listen (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=112674848).

Even in my endorsement, I must admit that it is a slow starter. I think that drum machine send a message to people expecting a traditional folk album. It was unnecessary, because the band-name is clearly tongue-in-cheek.
