Q65 - Don't Let Me Fall

grab this awesome thing here:

The Meat Puppets - S/T

the meat puppets' first album is an oft-overlooked punk rock classic. there are country/folky foreshadowings of their opus album Meat Puppets II here and there, but the weirdo-twangy-hardcore songs that dominate this LP stand up on their own, so there's no need to look for that. the vocals are terrific and reminiscent of darby crash, only becoming intelligible when necessary. considering the time this came out - the peak of the hardcore movement, you could say this is as revolutionary a take on punk as anything (SST labelmates) the minutemen put out at the time. needless to say, all of this album is great and you should check it out.

Thin Lizzy

Thin Lizzy are, to most people, unfortunately inseparable from their later hits like - cringe - The Boys Are Back In Town... but their first album found them at the peak of their songwriting, with incredible standout tracks like Look What The Wind Blew In and Return Of The Farmer's Son... right from the beginning of this album, you realize it isn't going to be a typical 1971 hard rock album. the band immediately sucks you into this other time and place, at times with a pastoral feeling. in my opinion, Lynott's ability to explore different modes and innovative melodies was perhaps his greatest contribution to rock music. very few bands were able to come as far as thin lizzy did on their first album alone. this is music that is technically-proficient, yes, but the point that appeals to me the most is that these are terrific songs. lots of great music to be found here, with subtle tinges of humor and attitude balancing out any aloofness you might expect from something that borders on early prog. this is some of the best songwriting of this period in music and it is all too often overlooked. this includes their New Day EP which is just flawless!

Deerhoof - BBC Session 12/01/2008

1st December 2008
BBC Studios, London, UK.

Broadcast by BBC 6Music on 1st December 2008 for "Marc Riley". they play three songs.


Pack - S/T

i have been looking for this lp everywhere and it finally turned up on the excellent blog Down Underground. this was a fantastic german punk rock band from the late 70's that wrote one of the most timeless punk anthems ever, "Terrorist". a perfect song. of course one cannot expect the rest of the album can't be expected to live up to opus level, but it is totally great the whole way through. quite nice to finally hear the other songs this band came up with. the cover art is quite great as well - snack machines! very underrated band - check this out.

Pack - Remote Controlled

Albert Kuvezin And Yat-Kha

these are my favorite tracks off this album these guys did called Re-Covers back in 2005. incredibly memorable and original versions of these songs in particular... i think their rendition of orgasmatron is actually better than the original. i think somehow, these covers are indelible in sort of the way that Killdozer's covers are...

Barrington Levy & Beenie Man - Under Mi Sensi

Barrington Levy & Beenie Man - Under Mi Sensi includes the original version plus an updated version and dnb remixes. great cd that i've been listening to a lot lately. you'll probably recognize it if you aren't sure what this is because this song has been sampled many times in various dnb tracks.

Terry Reid

terry reid was apparently a pop singer and then one day, all of a sudden, he figured out how to completely rock.

and it seems like he figured this out halfway through his debut album. it starts off pretty samey - a cover, some pop songs. not bad just not great. then, hang on a second, two ten-minute jams? what? yes! just check out the last six songs off this anthology album and that's really all you need. i wish this WAS the album because it is much better like this.

trust me - one day, all of a sudden, you will figure out that this completely rocks. for fans of: free, 13th floor elevators, led zeppelin.


Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)

"Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)" is the name of a song written by Sonny Bono. In 1966, Cher released it as the second single from the album The Sonny Side of Cher. Nancy Sinatra later covered the song in 1967.

Also in 1967, Nancy Sinatra released her version of the song on her album How Does That Grab You?. This version remained relatively obscure until it was used in the opening scenes of the 2003 movie Kill Bill Volume 1.

The Golding Instituted - Final Relaxation

brilliant and hilarious parody of self-hypnosis/relaxation records by gregg turkington (neil hamburger).

ps - please do not attempt to do the things the voice is describing.

Send No Flowers - Playing For Time

nice post-punk 80's number replete with out of tune bass and weird chirpy vocalizing.

the other songs from this 7" are pretty good too so here they are:

Chokebore - Speed Of Light

every pop song should be in a minor key.

Greg Sage - Soul's Tongue

greg sage was behind one of my all-time favorite bands, the wipers. this is off his 1985 solo record, straight ahead... good record because it sounds like the wipers, only it's mostly a lot quieter and acoustic.

if you're interested in the wipers, get the first three albums - flawless, under-rated, bleak punk rock classics. yes, the first three album rule. there was a terrific 3cd set re-issue of them that came out about six years ago with plenty of bonus tracks. highly recommended...

The Detroit Cobras - Love, Life And Leaving

the detroit cobras is a musical formula that by all rights should be completely awful. a cover band that does oldies in a slick garage pop style? that should totally suck. but inexplicably, it doesn't and the band is quite good and you should turn onto this shit.

Drunks With Guns - Second Verses

this is, quite simply, one of the best punk rock albums you will ever hear. it's not even really an "album" in the traditional sense - it's a compilation of songs... but it is the ultimate document of Drunks With Guns' musical output. this band is hugely under-rated and it's too bad because no other band has captured suburban misanthropy and punk angst half as well as Drunks have in one song (Wonderful Subdivision). then besides the obvious hit, you have another nine brilliant original slabs of sheer inebriated hate sludging along until you submit, shit yourself and fall down. i put this recording on the same page as anything you got by Flipper, Black Flag, No Trend, Die Kreuzen, Killdozer... go ahead and try to find a better bass guitar sound than that. you can't. not on any rock record. in short, this is one of the best things you will ever hear in your life.

Notes:This CD contains various songs from Drunks With Guns recorded between 1984 - 1990, some rare stuff from their first singles but also unreleased material.
Track 11 is a Weirdos cover.
Track 12 is a cover of the same song by Iggy And The Stooges.

the Pretenders - Middle Of The Road

oh it's the song that the white stripes stole the chorus of their first big hit from (listen to the high vocal melody - it is one note away from the melody of "fell in love with a girl" in a different key). this song is good though if you can appreciate banality and i don't usually like the pretenders. also, fuck the white stripes. they suck.

here is a louder, stereo version of a secret file found on the internet that has something to do with this new earth cd:

it's obviously a recording of a soundcheck at a radio station right before broadcasting live, possibly from the mic of the bass amp. beyond that, i have no idea what it means.

the Buzzcocks - Harmony In My Head

yeah i've had this stuck in my head for a week straight. this is easily one of the buzzcocks' finest moments... undoubtedly owing to the uncommonly-intense vocals sung by the guitarist instead of the Lead Singer. why don't more bands realize that you're supposed to scream? get with it, kids.
