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

Pack - Terrorist

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...

When The Levee Breaks (Led Zeppelin)

Orgasmatron (Motorhead)

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.
