i think i'm gonna purchase the albums in amazon so they're downloadable where i go.

speaking of which, king crimson put up ONE album on spotify. it's good songs but sounds like a strange mutation of the group i've never heard of before.

anyway i'm listening to YES time and a word which is this strange mixture of folk and psychedelic that drinks from the stream of old english music and adds electricity to it plus lsd maybe? supposedly they drank tons but i think not so much. beer drinkers probably.

anyway, im doing monday housekeeping and i need a beer. crap! the lawn is not gonna mow itself.

If you are in a Yes/Crimson mood, check out Claudio Simonetti's pre-Goblin group Cherry Five. I picked up a reissue of this the other day and it's pretty great. Not as unique as Goblin but a very cool Italian take on the classic early Progressive thing.
A lot of the Turkish stuff has been getting reissued lately as well. A couple of labels seem to be specializing in making that stuff more widely available. There are a lot of videos of a lot of those guys up on YouTube. In their native land in their time they were pretty huge Stars, so that's kind of a nice Resource as well.
Bunalim and early Erkin Koray are also great.

Erkin Koray, Mogollar and Barış Manço I'm certainly going to keep an eye on when it comes to reissues.

They cover the only Cleaners from Venus song that I remember from memory. I think the reissue of one or more of their records was a big deal a few years ago. I never understood why. They made pretty average music.

You only remember one Cleaners from Venus song? That seems weird to me.

Genesis post-Gabriel was a full-tilt fuckaround. I remember "No Son of Mine" was big when I was young. On the radio a lot. Oh and "I can't Dance." Pure shit. Just really shitty shit.

Peter Gabriel's solo stuff is weird. Not proggy, really. More arty. There's still some big bombastic stuff that I don't tolerate well, but Melt sounds almost art-punky to me. I can see this stuff on a playlist with New Order, Joy Division, maybe even PiL. I dunno. Then there's the later stuff like So, which is often really corny, but still OK.

My daughter and I made a quick day trip to New Orleans Saturday. Here are the CD's I placed in the car, listened to everything except the Mogwai, and three tracks from, Radio K.A.O.S.

gabriel did work with laurie anderson yeah.

lol 80s genesis is utter mental trash

if you hear phil collins in the drums though, when gabriel was bandleader, he was fucking fantastic. why did he have to open his fucking mouth? and yet, he made TONS of money. 80s genesis sold more than the garbage pail kids.

life is so wrong.

The Backbeat Band
Backbeat
1994, So here's an idea: make a movie in 1994 about the early Beatles. But instead of getting a band to try to sound like the early Beatles, just get Dave Pirner, Greg Dulli, Thurston Moore, Don Fleming, Mike Mills and Dave Grohl to run through these old standards. It's a good idea, and probably sounded like a genius idea in 1994. The results are slightly less wild than I might have hoped for, though. I mean yeah these are sloppier versions, and sure Pirner and Dulli sound like Pirner and Dulli. But I don't know, there's not quite as much personality here as there could be. For the most part it just kind of sounds like an especially energetic cover band. I'm sure they had fun. It sounds like it anyway. But there's just nothing truly standout here. Maybe it works well for the movie - I've never seen it. Or maybe I'm just being too hard on the recordings given that it's a bit of a supergroup filled with guys from bands I love. Oh well.

LifeDistortion 08.31.2017 10:33 AM

I have not heard those songs or seen that movie in years. I get the impression from what I remember is that the movie wanted to present The Beatles as inventing it all. Like, hey remember when The Beatles were punk rock before punk rock existed? Even that image of them all wearing black leather jackets has a 'they were doing it before The Ramones' feel to it.

noisereductions 08.31.2017 10:38 AM

ha! Look at the pic on the left... "remember when the Beatles were Lou Reed first?"

!@#$%! 08.31.2017 11:16 AM

finally gave it a listen, thanks!

in the 60s/ 70s there were a lot of psychedelic/prog/krautrock influences in "3rd world" music (not sure turkey fits the mold, but everyone knows os mutantes) at the same time that rich-country musicians either went out in search of world music (so many bands to india) and/or assimilated immigrant cultures (e.g santana). so-- glad to have found a new one. no idea this guy existed.

Tera Melos - Trash Generator

 


Not really grabbed by it yet, but Tera Melos was once a favorite of mine, and I'm willing to give it a chance... see if there's still anything there.
