What's amazing to me about it, is that Cline doesn't really "play" the songs (I mean, he does in a way, you can hear certain phrases, etc that match up)... but really it's as if he channeled Coltrane. It's like he figured out, 'okay how would Trane do this record if he had a guitar strapped to him?' Anyway, more on this in a future NR Essentials thread. Cuz this record is f'ing essential y'all.

Just listened to that crystal antlers album for the first time.

Another band that would be good if their vocalist wasn't terrible!

Excepter - STREAM 56

so far, not as good as STREAM 58 (which is mindblowing)

Indeed it does. The little suite of Microwave Mayo, More Rhymin' and That's That is just beyond the realms of stunning. So so so so so so fucking fantastic.

Just watched "Lessons Learned" video by Matt and Kim, some pretty-crappie-indie-pop band thing. Anyway, the video was sent to me because OH MY GOD! THEY'RE NAKED IN IT! IN NEW YORK! AND EVERYBODY'S LOOKING AT 'EM! ... Though, didn't Alannis Morisette already do the exact same video like 10 years ago (oh and Blink-182, sorta, too)? Yawn.

I like II better but I is good.
John Fahey - Red Pony from 1969

afterthefact 04.23.2009 03:57 PM

Well I can vouch for II being amazing, although on repeated listens I tend to skip the first song.

Come to think of it, I do that on a lot of albums. It's either because I tend to hear the first song more than the other songs, or it's due to my wanting to dive into the middle of an album, and not just start where I'm told to :)

afterthefact 04.23.2009 04:03 PM

Also, an attempted rep for the vid. Fahey was way ahead of his time. I mean, tuning to an open E minor isn't considered much now, with all of the alternate tuning going on, but he was doing it in the 60's. Plus, I feel he did it for the right reason, doing it so he could get the sound he wanted, not just so he could show everybody his new tuning, because, come on, E E F# F# B B is the same as A A C C F F, right? :)

My Old Radiohead Bootleg CD!

I got my dad to pay 30 odd quid for these 2 CDS that had radio sessions and live songs etc. 10 years ago before the age of the internet, i guess it proves I was a proper hardcore fan when I was 14.
