I've been through so much stereo equipment over the years I couldn't even begin to say...I never owned too much Pioneer, I was more of a Kenwood guy I guess.

The system now is a total hodgepodge..Kenwood, Technics, TEAC, Onkyo and Sony. Been that way now for awhile and for being just a home system, it works for me.

I've been using this old Mac since 1979. I have a non-working Denon L-60 (I think) turntable upstairs that needs to be rehabilitated.

My current system consists of the following (minus speakers):

Kenwood Audio/video receiver KR-V6040
TEAC CD Recorder CD-RW880
SONY Compact disc player CDP-C425
Onkyo Dual Cassette deck TA-RW244/144
TEAC Equalizer EQA-120
Technics Automatic turntable SL-BD20D

Other than the CD Recorder, it's your typical early 90's thing (which was the last time I revamped it).

I cant quit listening to Sun Kil Moon. Its "Ghosts of the Great Highway" right now.

I'm convinced that "Salvador Sanchez" is the best song ever written about the convergence of boxing, cult of personality, and death. Great handling of a rare subject. Beautiful. Maybe even the best song about sport that I have ever heard.

Salvador Sanchez
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jW3_8Q45xM8

"Salvador Sanchez
Arrived and vanished
Only 23 with so much speed
Owning the highway

Mexico City bred so many
but none quite like him
Sweet Warrior,
Pure Magic Matador

Pancho Villa
Would never rest
'Til 1925 he closed his eyes
Until Manilla stars would rise

Gozo of the Philipines
The choirs of angels sing
Ukelele strings play for his legend
????? king

Benny "the Kid" Paret
Came a good way
Climing grey sky to raise his hands
Snuffed by the better man.

Eyes of Los Rios cry for sons
Lost on distant shores
unforseen wars
struck and delivered them

How have they gone?
Fell by leather
So alone
but theyre bound together."

Women with their head's on the wall like trophies...what a misogynist video!!!

Seriously though, pre-hippy dippy Animals was some great, great stuff. Like The Rascals and others in the 60's, as ambitions soared, quality seemingly suffered. It was tragic really....I mean, there's quite a difference between this greatness and unlistenable tripe like "San Franciscan Nights" & "Sky Pilot".

True. I loved the early Animals stuff. I just think they fell for the Siren song of commercialism and the bucks that came with it.

Could be....I still think it was the peace and love hippy stuff that did them in. I brought up The Rascals because the very same thing happened to them. They were masters of mid-60's blue eyed garage soul until they tried to get on board the late 60's hippy train, then disaster ensued. Not to the extent that it crippled The Animals (who were far and away the best neo-blues band to come out in the UK's first wave), but close enough to count.

Some bands adapted to it just fine (Beatles) some tried then abandoned it totally after one album (Rolling Stones) and others just got crushed by it all (Animals, Rascals). When it comes to The Animals, one should get the two indespensible compilations that are available (The Complete Animals & Animalisms for the later stuff before the fall) and avoid everything else just out of respect for the band's legacy.

That's how I see it anyways.

Was just watching the film "Comeback" (OOP) with Eric Burdon.

Not exactly the critics' choice, but I really like the soundtrack.

Many of the tunes have the same raw edge as early Animals stuff.

All of the original members including Nate Mendel and Will were with the band. They played for about an hour and a half. Very good. They were tight, and they played all of my favorites from Diary and LP2. They are still extremely unique in the landscape of rock, and its a shame that they have been lumped into the emo category as the progenitors of the genre, because they are more like progressive punk than anything else.

They are as good now as they were in 1994. Go see 'em.

Glad you liked it....they should get more recognition than they do, but you know how that goes. It was a great show, as always. A very varied set, many different styles from guitar feedback freakouts to almost dance pop and everything in between. Been waiting to see if any footage gets posted on You Tube of it.

I may get laughed out of this thread, but my wife left an Allison Krauss & Union Station CD in the car last night. I had a long drive this morning and left it in the player. Never been a huge country fan, especially bluegrass, but man...that's some good stuff. She might have the best female voice I've ever heard ...and the musicianship of that band is impressive. Especially the dude that plays steel guitar or dobro or whatever that is.

Allison Krauss is very good. The stuff they call country nowadays is a lot more than country. Listen to Martina McBride and Patty Loveless, those girls can sing, just to mention a few.

Oh yeah. I was introduced to them (and many others) thru the Nuggets collections as I mentioned. Mostly one hit wonders and other unknowns from the mid-60's garage scene up to 68 (I think). VERY cool stuff if you're into that whole "psychotic reaction" type stuff.

The Watchband albums each are good to fair on their own, but if you go with a "Best Of", you'll get a very solid collection of stuff like the above track. Very Stones influenced, sloppy and intense.

Not even the cheesy 80's synth & congas can keep Reverend Al down, truly one of the last great Soulmen of the pre-Disco era.

Night Music was a great program. David Sandborn's pomposity used to grate on me a bit, but thankfully Jools Holland made up for it in spades. Jools carries on the tradition of this great program over in the UK as Later.. With Jools Holland where every show features up to seven different bands, none from the same style/genre, all set up in a circle performing for each other and a small TV audience. It's shown on the Ovation network at least one a week, often in a marathon and it's a must see.

The glaring difference between the two programs is Night Music often paired musicians together that never would've worked together under normal circumstances (the results varied, but made for some interesting moments nonetheless) regrettably that doesn't happen on the Later show.

Amazon is your best bet. I just checked it out and there's a "Best Of" titled Forty Four that's available for about $5.99 that's a very good introduction. No sense in paying the mega bucks for an out of print item if you're not a collector.

Not even the cheesy 80's synth & congas...

Actually, the synths are pretty understated on the track - they're just being used to create a bed for the other instruments and to add a little icing. Not really prominent enough for the average listener to notice them much.

And I don't think I've ever heard the word "cheesy" applied to congas (whose presence in music, BTW, neither began nor ended with the 80s) before (and especially not when a world-class cat like Don Alias is playing them.) :laugh:

Quick! Google his credits! :laugh:

Night Music was a great program. David Sandborn's pomposity used to grate on me a bit, but thankfully Jools Holland made up for it in spades.

Sanborn came across as himself, i.e., a serious, world-class/world renowned musician who was actually able to say something intelligent about the music (as opposed to mere taste-making/fashion policing re: the use of synths, etc.) I suppose that, by definition, all of the above translates to "pompous" in your world.

Holland, while not a bad pianist himself, was more about the show biz razzmatazz and the usual peripheral crap on NM. Just about every serious musician and/or listener I've encountered who was actually old enough to stay up late enough to watch the show when it was in production feels "Night Music" was better after Holland's departure.

No need to, because once again you're trying to sidetrack what I was talking about. The instruments in question on that track are not only very noticable but they're sounding the same as most production jobs of the 80's....meaning they haven't aged well at all, sound horribly dated today and yes....they are cheesy.

Of course they do and lemme guess as to why...it was because Holland came from Squeeze...a new wave pop band that's just well below the serious sideman standard of the highbrow Sanborn, right??

The instruments in question on that track are not only very noticable(sic)...

The synths are only noticeable in the intro. After that, they're pulled pretty far back in the mix for the most part. The congas are WAY back in the mix.

At any rate, your refusal to acknowledge talent when it manifests itself in a genre or era (or on an instrument) you personally dislike only makes you sound amateurish, provincial-minded, and musically immature.


....but they're sounding the same as most production jobs of the 80's....meaning they haven't aged well at all, sound horribly dated today and yes....they are cheesy.

Yeah, we get it - you don't like synths.

And "produced in the 80s" = "bad." :welcome:

Instead of saying "horribly dated" couldn't you at least be honest enough to say "unfashionable?" That's all you're really saying here, anyway.

Indeed, the fashion policing and taste-making in which you routinely engage is ultimately little more than (1) hubris and (2) a compensation for your inability to offer any actual intelligent analysis of the music.

Oh, the irony.

I'm not the one trumpeting myself as some kind of "historian" or music critic here.

I'm not the one sitting on the sidelines telling accomplished artists how they should be making their music while I produce nothing myself.

Oh well - it's safer than having to put your own music up here for a critique, eh?

At any rate, it's pretty clear that, in your mindset, "pompous" = "a little too sophisticated for Hogan to wrap his brain around."

(But then, most "music" critics probably couldn't play a C Major scale if their lives depended on it, so there's nothing exceptional about you in that regard.)

Yawn.

Wrong again Ubermusician. Never said anything of the sort. I was talking about the style, not the instruments themselves, but you just keep grasping at straws because someone dared to disagree with you and you need to prove yourself right at all costs instead of accepting the notion that people can have different opinions other than your own.

Indeed, the fashion policing and taste-making in which you routinely engage is ultimately little more than (1) hubris and (2) a compensation for your inability to offer any actual intelligent analysis of the music.

IOW's if you dare to disagree with the "in depth" opinion of the Ubermusician, then you don't know what you're talking about and don't have a valid opinion. We've been through this whole song and dance of yours pages ago. You treat differing opinions here like it's the W&P Room (no civil discussion, just condescending attacks) and it's the main reason why no one likes to have a conversation with you on this (or any other subject) in the entire forum.

I'm not the one trumpeting myself as some kind of "historian" or music critic here.

I'm not the one sitting on the sidelines telling accomplished artists how they should be making their music...yadda, yadda, yadda Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

And here we go with more condescending blather from the Ubermusician.

^ Perfect characterization of your initial zingers re: "cheesy" synths, congas, etc.

Just about every other word you write about music drips with the condescension and arrogance of a person who feels he has the right to sit on the sidelines and judge accomplished artists while producing nothing of any musical consequence himself.

The arrogance and condescension of a "reviewer" who thinks other people should listen to or buy a record just because he tells them it's OK or hip to like that record.

Anyway, if having the audacity to suggest that you should actually know a thing or two about music before you hype yourself as some sort of taste-making critic makes me "condescending," then guilty as charged, I guess.


Wrong again Ubermusician. Never said anything of the sort. I was talking about the style, not the instruments themselves...

Like hell you were.

You didn't say anything about styles - you just crapped on an entire decade (i.e., "typical 80s production") and an instrument (synth.)

At any rate, as I said, the synth sound on that track is not what I'd call "dated." It's not like he's playing an Arp Odyssey or a Moog or something.
Patches like the one he's using are still used on a lot of projects nowadays.


Couldn't you be honest enough to admit that overall sound mid-80's hasn't aged very well?..

According to whom?

Oh, that's right - the fashion police and arbiter of taste (read: Hogan.)

It's all in the ear of the beholder (a concept you will never understand.)

BTW, FWIW, there are certain synth sounds that, in my opinion, haven't aged well, but that doesn't stop me from judging the music being played on them on its own merits.

Hey Hogan--How is the new Yo La Tengo? I've been meaning to pick it up but it keeps slipping my mind.

YO LA TENGO - POPULAR SONGS

Rating - 3 1/2 Stars (on The Dave Marsh scale of a block to 5 stars)

I have no doubt long time fans of the band will be content with this, the bands first album since 2006. Popular Songs (a title that's firmly tongue in cheek) is a holding pattern, offering more of the same directions explored in previous efforts with a variety of variation. The new wrinkles here are added strings that don't rob the band of it's power (a problem that R.E.M. never recovered from) and a one-off flirtation with classic Motown soul never before attempted in the entire catalog.

Things start off neo-psychedelically with "Here To Fall", a keyboard based mindf*ck romp augmented by tasteful backing strings that never overshadow the song or it's trippy inclinations. There's nothing like it previously in the band's catalog.
Avalon is a good to great slice of mid-tempo jangle pop. I thought this track had Georgia's vocals on it initally, but after seeing the band play it live, it's actually Ira singing it in a high-pitched voice. It's a beautiful song and maybe stood a better chance of breaking out had Ira sang it in his normal voice, oh well.
BY Two's is an ambient track circa "And Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out". Very slow and atmospheric with a dry Georgia vocal. I once asked Ira about tracks like this and he said to me that they are really showcases for the band's love of the ebow......you can expect one track like this per disc for the remainder of the band's career. It's up to you whether or not you use it as an intermission.
Nothing To Hide is a fuzztone three chord indie rocker with an Ira "solo" dripping in feedback and recalling the ghost of Robert Quinne. It's as thrilling as it is awesome.
Periodically Double Or Triple, with it's catchy, funky bassline is the band's entry for dance pop radio airplay. The tracks accessability is ultimately underminded by weirdness in the bridge, making a wide audience unlikely. Still, it's synths and bassline make it probably the most likeable song on the disc at first listen. This is the track most recalled when people are asked about this disc and with good reason.
If It's True is my personal favorite. A classic bit of Motown soul, colored by strings, a Hammond organ and with call and response vocals by both Ira and Georgia. The band never before attempted anything like this and they succeed beyond expectations.
I'm On My Way, When It's Dark & All Your Secrets are low key, adult pop done as you'd come to expect from the band. Each could fit comfortably on "I Can Feel The Heart Beating" or "I'm Not Afraid Of You" with ease and very well may be holdovers from the last album, although none of them feel like outtakes.
The final three tracks on the disc collectively run just a bit longer than the previous nine. They make for demanding listening and bring down the disc as a whole. Perhaps as a reaction to the overall pop leanings of the initial tracks, More Stars Than There Are In Heaven recalls Big Day Coming with it's hypnotic keyboard loop and slow pace for close to 10 minutes.
Perhaps the most unbearable track on the disc, The Fireside is a spare, acoustic arrangemnt that drifts for 11 minutes without variation of any kind. It's sleep inducing drone recalls I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One's "One PM Again" If that does cause you to dose off, then you'll be awaken rudely by And the Glitter Is Gone, a 16 + minute Ira guitar freakout jam drenched in ear-splitting feedback.

I awarded the album 3 1/2 stars, meaning that it has appeal to fans of a particular style and/or is of interest to established fans of a particular artist, but the work is unlikely to attract new fans or win over detractors of an artist's previous works.

That's how I see it Inferno. I personally think you would like it, but I'd direct newbies to other albums before this one if they were being introduced to the band for the first time. Once you get it, lemme know if you agree or disagree with this assessment. I would be most interested in your opinion of it.

Hope this somehow helps.

Look closely and you'll see me in front of Ira. I didn't get the chance to interact with them much at this show, as I was pretty ill at the time, so no pics...they were cool though. Hope you get to see them at some point, it's well worth it.

Earlier this summer, the full sets of various Woodstock performances were released for select artists in limited edition. (Santana, Johnny Winter, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin and Sly And The Family Stone). This wild show is the best of the lot. Every bit as manic as the film clips everyone has seen. The problem with these sets is they're paired with the album that was out at the time as a twofer. Which is fine if you're a newbie, it's a pain in ass for people who already own the studio sets. This set was paired up with Stand! which I've had for over thirty years in various formats. They could've at least remixed it or something or paired it up with more live stuff from another show from the era.

http://static.gigwise.com/gallery/9416533_Pixies-1.jpg

...came through Oakland last weekend and I witnessed the whole mess.

The fathers (and mothers...Kim Deal has her own footprint) of everything that has come through the post-punk genre from Nirvana to Pavement to Weezer to Modest Mouse to Animal Collective to whatever new digs are in your CD player now was basically birthed through the line of the Pixies' 1989 tour de force Doolittle. It resonates with a kind of surrealism that cannot be sensed and rationalized like any other set of musicians ever to set foot in a studio have been able to articulate. The Pixies' Doolittle was a sort of avant-garde masterwork with the depth and imagery of the surrealist masters of the early 1900's.

http://midnightcafe.files.wordpress.com/2007/04/un-chien-andalou.jpg

Anyway, the Pixies current tour revolves around the 20th anniversary of the release of Doolittle. They opened the set with a showing of Dali's Un chien andalou which was accompanied by a modern, moody soundtrack. It set an eerie, unsettled tone to the set. The classic eyeball slicing scene is particularly disturbing. Its important to know that this movie was influential in the writing process for Doolittle. "Debaser" contains several allusions to the short film and its themes are present all the way through the album. Un chien andalou was followed by 4 of the B-Sides released with the singles of "Here Comes Your Man" and "Monkey Gone to Heaven"...including a couple of my Pixies faves "Bailey's Walk" and the joyous "Manta Ray".

They followed the B-Sides with an in-sequence run through the entire album of Doolittle, which was played to perfection. I saw them in 2004 and this performance was immaculate in comparison. There was no posturing, there was no cheapness about the show. It was raw and rough and right on time...just like a Pixies show should be. The highlights of the show for me were the performances of "Manta Ray", "Tame", and "Silver", which were essentially the extensions of the moods of the show. Beautiful in all respects, really. Joy, violence, loneliness...all juxtaposed like figures in a Dali.

The lights and effects were interesting and added alot to the presentation. You could tell that the Pixies are enjoying themselves on this tour and are probabably enjoying their commercial success (which is well-deserved) stateside as well.

The show was closed with two encores, which included 5 songs.

Best show I have seen. Wonderful.

Awesome. They're in Chicago this week...but I'm poor, so I probably won't make it. Doolittle is undoubtedly one of (if not the) most influential albums of the last 25 years. And one of the outright best.

Dave is one of the best aspects of the Pixies. He's sort of a troubled, anxious guy who just does his work. His drumming is what holds that thing together. There are times when he is doing brilliant work...the chorus of "I Bleed", just about all of "Bone Machine", "Oh My Golly", etc, etc. He's a solid drummer. In fact, when they were recording Surfer Rosa, Steve Albini mentioned that he thought Lovering was the best aspect of the band.

Lovering's drumming was flat out copied by every popular drummer for the 15 or so years after Doolittle. Either by inspiration or out of necessity. Lovering's influence was being passed around by all of the fashionable players of the day for the better part of 20 years and if you were not listening to it as a muse, you were imitating it because you had to have that style in your repetoire to fit in.

As far as how he's playing...he is as good as he has always been. The other night they played "Isla de Encanta", "Bone Machine", and of course "Debaser" and the other rapid-fire punk tinged songs that Lovering goes machine gun on.

Hey LABF (or any fan of outstanding technical guitar work)...Check out the work by Steve Howe on this track. This is such an oddball piece. The pocket is moving so fast at some points that it creates these sonic spaces that just bubble and burst forth with rhythm and melody. For much of the piece Howe is playing spooky, haunting lines.

The guitar solo on this piece is probably my all-time fave (starts at about 2:30). Absolutely brilliant stuff here.

Interesting.

Remove the vocal track, and the first section sounds like it could be a Weather Report or RTF tune. Lots of complex metric modulation going on in the latter sections, to be sure. The tune covers so many different stylistic bases it almost sound like a medley of separate pieces. Pretty ambitious composition. Howe definitely has a recognizable guitar style.

It's surreal when you realize that if a band like Yes came along right now they wouldn't be able to get airplay - a sad reminder of how much commercial music has devolved over the last 30 years.

Commercial music has returned to where it was before Elvis, Roy Orbison, Motown, etc. A bunch of retreaded 3 1/2 minute pieces with repetitive progressions, structure, and melody.

I think its more that the record industry collapsed in the late 90's.

I was playing out quite a bit in the early-mid 90's and several of my friends' bands got record contracts with major distributors.. The industry collapsed and it pretty much killed the local scene. They were all doing interesting, original things.

The major music distributors have been trying to fight pirating ever since, and in that process has been less and less willing to take risks on original music. Where in the burgeoning early 90's you had some interesting material popping out of corners all over the world, this generation has templates of a few different productions that it tries to market through clear channel, etc. All of today's music has been homogenized. There's the bad-girl pop (Pink, late Britney Spears, etc), the good-girl pop (Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, early Britney Spears), Metal-pop (Nickelback, Puddle of Mudd, Breaking Benjamin, etc), Rock-pop (the Killers, Weezer, etc.), Rap-rock (a bunch of bad stuff), etc.

They funnel the production of those bands to have similar qualities.

Oh, I agree with that, 100%, sure. It wasn't really what I was talking about, but it's certainly a valid point of view IMHO.

That is what I was originally talking about. If you are referring to vocal processing, then I would just say that today's processing is yet another era in a history that goes back to the inception of radio.

Sure is. I've found that most people like his more conventional, blues based stuff, but as soon as albums like Trout Mask Replica or Bat Chain Puller are pulled out, well....very few seem to be able to handle his more challenging work.

When I was a little kid my dad was principal of the high school, and sponsor of the student council. They hired the Kingston Trio play, and I got to go. I think it was about 1963. The were good - they had red and white striped jackets and wide brimmed cream colored straw hats with a reddish band around them. Played stuff like Where Have All The Flowers Gone.

It was a different kind of crowd than the Kings of Leon at the Fillmore last year.

Jay Reatard died today, he was 29 years old

R.I.P.

Artists React to Jay Reatard's Death

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bradford Cox, Ted Leo, No Age, and Pixies reflect

Photo by Andy Eisberg

Yesterday brought the sad news that Memphis garage rocker Jay Reatard had died at the age of 29. As the news circulated, many artists and indie music figures who knew or admired Reatard expressed their feelings about his death. Below, we've collected the thoughts of many of those people.

UPDATE: Jay Reatard's website has posted his cover of Nirvana's "Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on Seattle". It was recorded in May for a tribute to Nirvana's In Utero album. Jay played all the instruments.

Prefix points out that in addition to the many written tributes, No Age have posted a photo tribute on their blog, and Beck's website is streaming Reatard's cover of the Beck song "Gamma Ray".

-- Deerhunter/Atlas Sound frontman Bradford Cox: "Jay was what few people have the capacity to be. He created an undeniably classic album that contained so much pain transferred to tape in such an explosive way that it made you feel different after hearing it. He was transgressive and honest. His flaws were something he focused on and overdubbed and distorted until they made you forget who he really was-- a person with feelings and a good heart. He loved music and worked hard from a young age to pursue it. He was a self-made and unmade man. I am truly sickened to see him go."

-- Matador Records co-founder Gerard Cosloy: "I was on a flight to NY this afternoon and when I landed there were about two dozen text messages about Jay Reatard's passing. It is the height of understatement to say I'm upset, confused and deeply saddened by the loss of one of the more amazing people I've been fortunate to know. In record company parlance, yeah, we've lost (let's go down the checklist) a phenomenal performer, songwriter, and insatiable music lover. But we've lost a great friend as well, and that's the part that hurts the most.

We're not the only ones feeling that way right now, obviously. Jay's friends all over the country, heck, all over the world are dealing with this. I know his various scrapes over the years have made for cheap internet fodder, but the people who cared about him are gonna remember a real person that mattered to them. Our thoughts are with that very large group of people this evening."

-- Pixies: "We want to express our condolences to the friends and family of Jay Reatard, on his sudden passing today."

-- Ted Leo: "Man, I gotta say, this Jay Reatard news is really hitting me weirdly hard. I'd only met him a couple of times, but... Ugh. Weird. And sad ... Let's just take it easy with the jumping to conclusions and have a little respect, huh? Regardless of how it happened, it happened."

-- Vivian Girls: "We loved your music."

-- DIY promoter Todd Patrick: "You were talented & troubled & both a great influence and a negative influence on a lot of people. you should not be dead"

-- Zola Jesus: "'Blood Visions' was a perfect record"

-- Small Black: "There were few who could do more with 1 minute of time"

-- Sky Larkin: "The flying V never looked more at home than in his hands"

Okay, I checked into this...it's a very interesting record. Most of these songs sound like Vanilla Fudge outtakes...the covers especially ("The Shelter Of Your Arms", "It's A Man's Man's Man's World"). Figures that they were a Long Island band, the vocals and Hammond organ stylings are straight out of the Fudge and Rascals. "Let Me Down Easy" anticipates the sound of Sugarloaf (remember "Green Eyed Lady"?) added brass in spots was also an unexpected surprise.

On the downside, this has to be the limpest version of "Hard To Handle" I've ever heard in my entire life. The good vocal is totally wasted on the sluggish, lifeless backing that is too laid back for it's own good.

Here's the lone You Tube track from the album that I could find. The don't wear the influences on their sleeves quite as much in this one, but you can still tell they're from that whole east coast scene. Found a bunch more tracks on MySpace from them ( including the ones I mentioned above, they even admit a V Fudge influence there Ha!)

Anyways, it's a cool record and one that I would purchase (if I can find a copy for a reasonable price that is...I know it's pretty rare). It's good to hear something from that era that's not totally tired from being overplayed on classic rock radio for a change.

Thank you and kudos Sir :thumbsup:

You would think so, but that's not what I'm finding amongst that set (meaning the "classic rockers" who insist there hasn't been much music of value made since 1977). Most of these guys see the names of Grohl and Homme and reject it outright. Others hear how a track like this is somewhat disjointed, think the Jones influence is minimal and dismiss it as just another side project for these GOTSA guys (because these guys generally don't like to be challenged with material like this). Which is unfortunate, because it they gave it half a chance, they'd probably be happy with at least half the album because of it's neo Zep production alone. I liked it enough to burn a copy. This track started to get some radio legs late last year, then died out.

Its interesting on its own merits. Its clearly a collaboration, and you can hear all three players in the compositions. The song I posted is a radio tune...and not my favorite, but there are some raw rock tunes on the album.

What is interesting to me about it is that it covers a wide swath of rock from Zeppelin-type jams to modern White Stripes sequences. I like all three musicians (Jones is one of my favorite bass players), so its interesting to hear what bubbles up amongst them.

While I wouldn't say that the album is great, I would certainly say that it is very good. The musicians are so talented, and are clearly enjoying what they are doing that they are capable of creating a great album.

That's wild. I had no idea.

I loved the simple, energetic power pop of The Knack. They offended a whole lotta people for many different reasons, many of which had nothing to do with the music they left behind. I had a chance once to check them out on one of the reunion tours, but passed because the original drummer (the late, great Bruce Gary) didn't take part in any of them.

It's on the long deleted Mellow Doubt CD single (Aussie version), they also have a great Who-like track on it (I forget the name of it at the moment) and an acoustic version of "Start Again" a full 3 years before that song appeared as the kickoff track on Songs From Northern Britian.

If there was one band out there who I wish would release a B Side compilation, it's the Fanclub. Anyways, a new album finally comes out in June and since the band has an unbelievable high standard, it should be a classic.

Ever hear these guys, Hogan?

I've heard of them, but never got too deep into checking them out other than a song here and there. That's something I'm going to have to work on.
I do like what I've heard so far, I can say that much.

They were very much part of that late-80s Stone Roses scene, but they are better. Start with Daddy's Highway (which the song I posted, North By North, is on). Awesome record. Although most of their early albums are out of print (they still put out new material), so you may have to dig a bit.

Good to know a new album is coming soon. You are right; there is scarcely a bad step in the catalogue. Make sure to post your review of the new record here when it comes out.

Went to see Thom Yorke with his solo band (featuring RHCP bassist Flea) at the Aragon in Chicago tonight. Pretty bad ass. All those sparse songs on The Eraser that were just Thom and few simple computer beats have been completely fleshed out with five piece rhythm and guitar. Ballads turned into thunderous rock songs. And, or course, it was fun to watch Thom and Flea battle it out for most insane dance moves.

Is the band staying together or is this the swan song CD?

I think the band will be staying together... dunno if some personnel changes may happen down the line. Change sometimes does happen; in fact they have a different bassist and drummer for Moonshine Valentine than the ones who played on Too Much To Dream. The CD release has been the culmination of nearly 4 years of hard work for Sixstringlass though... she wrote all but one of the songs on the CD; and their drummer wrote one.

That was his breakout release, no question. I perfer his faster material as opposed to the long slow dirges though, as much as I'm a fan of his work, the long, snail paced workouts tend to wear on me after a bit.

I've met him a few times. He's a hard person to hang out with because he's a loner who generally doesn't care for the company of other people and he frowns upon drinking. I have a couple of pics with him, but we never interacted all that much and are certainly not on a first name basis or anything like that. I'm still a huge fan though and keep buying all his cd's/books and what have you.

I try not to post the same vids over and over, so going through the thread to see if I posted that before was a bit of a challenge and a half.....ever start from the beginning and try to work your way through it? It's something else.

The RoF tends to only be reserved for the inane threads. If you go to that sub section and see what's there, about 85% of the threads are total garbage. It's a joke section, pure and simple.

Regardless on how you fall musically, at least this thread is somewhat informative and horizon expanding. I know I've been turned onto stuff from this thread that I never heard of before and we can't be the only ones to have that happen after browsing it.

No. They imploded after the fairly disasterous "Come In And Burn" LP. He did three more albums and one benefit album of Black Flag covers for the West Memphis Three with a LA hard rock outfit (Mother Superior) backing him as The Rollins Band and then that was it.

The Band in the "Fool" clip reformed and toured with X in 2006, but he felt there wasn't a total commitment from the players to keep it going and became disillusioned by the whole "reunion tour" thing about halfway through it (Incidently, I seen them on this tour and thought they were just fine, but whatever).

He's vowed to never do music again, save for guest appearances on other artists work. He's totally a spoken word guy now with movies and TV mixed in here and there.
