A charity shop bargain. I took a chance on this because I haven't liked anything Mark Lanegan has done since about 1989. This is pretty good. 1.99 worth of good anyway.

 

gmku 03.16.2012 07:01 AM

Interesting, at least.

I have to agree, I'm not a Lanegan fan. I don't get the acclaim for the new album.

Pookie 03.16.2012 07:04 AM

I don't understand why he is suddenly so loved these days. In many ways I think this album would have been better without his input. There are some really good songs and Isobel Campbell's voice is very nice.



I hate the word nice.

Pookie 03.16.2012 07:11 AM

Another charity shop buy (1.99 as ever). Worth having for the great early tracks. Digital was always one of my favourite JD songs but I only previously had the live version on Still.

You found this there!? Nice!

Here's a tape I have'nt seen on too many places. It's a shame cause it's a brilliant peice of russian punk rock. The style is very original and melancholic, and it sounds much older than 1995. I don't know too much about this band, except that I can't stop listen to it. So if you like the special style of old russian bands like GrOb and the likes, this is mandatory.

i wish there was some more Earl, Tyler & Franky on it.
i suppose they know no one's checking the other members' solo stuff, so they're letting them shine on the collective tape.

ah well. the last track is fire. good to see Earl's still got it.

Specifically this track at the moment.

Foolishly just started listening to this one hour long piece when I have to leave the house in half an hour. We've all been there:o.

You Made Me Realise.

really short but on point. it's kinda like a combo of Isn't Anything + Loveless but poppier.

gmku 03.16.2012 12:29 PM

Nice. I'll have to watch for that. A record store visit is planned for next week!

You haven't heard it? It's very good, in fact I think it's become my favourite SYR release. It's a really nice instrumental album with Lee and Thurston also playing piano. It sort of reminds me a tiny bit of some of the Demonlover/Kali Yug Express tracks. I'd say it's the best Sonic Youth release since Murray Street and you should go and search for it right now!

I must have it, then. I am visiting the store this week. If they do not have it, I will ask the nice store people to order it for me. On LP, of course.

It's been a relatively music-free weekend. Sometimes I need that. Sometimes I need to take a break and not listen to anything.

Yesterday morning I tuned in to the local radio station's Saturday morning jazz program. Oftentimes I love this program. But sometimes they get into this corny doo-wop vocal jazz thing, which just irritates the shit out of me and the girlfriend. After about the fourth scatting goddamn song, I got so pissed off that I switched off the tuner, grabbed my LP copy of The Clifford Brown Memorial Album (Blue Note) slipped the LP out of the jacket, slapped it on the JVC QL-Y5F, hit play, and sank into the couch. A few minutes later, my girlfriend said, "Hey, nice. Now they're into some sultry jazz."

I said, "No, honey, that's my record."

"Oh. Who is it?"

"Clifford Brown. From the early 50s. Blue Note record."

"Oh. Trumpet player?"

"Yes."

"Hmm, nice."

I was happy again. My girlfriend said that my Clifford Brown album was nice. I got up from the couch and went to the kichen and made some fresh coffee in our french press. We listened to the record while she worked on her Web site and I checked my bank account, paid some bills, and wrote some to-do lists.

Just listened to a new song by Lee Ranaldo... sounds pretty good :)

This is EXACTLY the same scenario that unfolded in my household yesterday. EXACTLY (apart from my Clifford Brown being the original RCA version).
