jeff buckley live at arlene’s grocery, 2.9.97

Posted by gregor on Sunday, November 17th, 2013

Jeff-buckley

today jeff would have been 47…. very interesting that a guy who really put out one record is still in the hearts of so many nearly 16 years after his death. speaks volumes to his talent, and i guess what could have been. this is not the best recording, but its lovely in warts and blemishes. rip jeff

wilco – am demos

Posted by gregor on Friday, November 8th, 2013

am

happy friday peoples! firstly, i still havent sent out thank you’s and shit from the indiegogo campaign, but if you are reading this and you donated and want something from me, email me captainsdead at gmail dot com. secondly, been thinking about adding a bit more content to the site. granted its not awesome content, but trying to bring all my social shit centralized into one place. this may be a good idea or a bad idea? i have a tumblr acct, which my instagram and other random shit feeds into, but was thinking about incorporating all that into the site? thoughts? or should i just leave the site be as it is? i dont know if you care about seeing pictures of my kids, or me drinking beer or pictures of random crap i find on reddit, but maybe you do? so you tell me… anyway, here are some am demos…. keeping on the wilco kick from yesterday.

1. must be high
2. shouldnt be ashamed
3. box full of letters
4. pick up the change
5. passenger side (912)

wilco – summerteeth demos

Posted by gregor on Thursday, November 7th, 2013

oh, wilco/tweedy, i miss you so much. i get a lot of shit from die hard, yet blind, wilco fans for saying that nels cline ruined wilco, and i usually only say that cause i know it pisses people off, or at least annoys them. kicking jay out of the band, ruined wilco. jeff needs a foil, not yes men, and jay was just that. not discounting any of the other guys participation or input in later day wilco, but me really thinks that jay pushed jeff and was willing to call him out on his bs. none of us really know what went down then, whats going on now, etc… but still, i miss that wilco. change is inevitable, but did it have to be so shitty?

EDIT: SADLY WILCO MANAGEMENT/LAWYERS ASKED, VERY POLITELY, MIND YOU, THAT I TAKE THESE DOWN. SORRY FOLKS, PARKS CLOSED.

1. a shot in the arm
2. we’re just friends
3. im always in love
4. candyfloss
5. how to fight loneliness
6. tried and true

help chris porter make “this red mountain”

Posted by gregor on Thursday, October 31st, 2013

my man chris porter, some dark holler, is heading into the studio to record this red mountain, which he is saying is his strongest stuff to date. also, he’s bringing none other than will johnson, centro-matic, in to produce the record, and maybe an “etc.” he’s also got bonnie and elliot whitmore, chris masterson in to fill out the sound and explore the space! either way, he’s got an indiegogo going on right now to help make this happen. so lets try and make this happen for him! also check out some dark holler’s 2012 release hollow chest via their bandcamp page. chris porter/sdh via twitter
