golden smog live at great american music hall, 6.26.96

Posted by gregor on Sunday, January 26th, 2014

whats up suckers? not much on my end, just a lazy sunday, which i am absolutely fine with. as some of you may know i dont pay much attention to other music blogs. its not that i dont care what other people are talking about, well i sort of dont, but i just really have zero interest in but its like making pizza’s all day and then spend another few hours watching someone else make pizzas. if that makes any sense? what i am getting at, just learned this week that one of the longest running bloggers, frank over at chromewaves cut the chord back in mid december, then bryan from ninebullets handed over the reigns to good pal of mine and long time contributor romeosidvicious and april from now this sound is brave handed over her site to a young lady named jennifer. all long running blogs, 11 years, 8ish, and 4ish respectively. the whole music blogging landscape has changed, some for the better, but a lot for the worse. i am not going anywhere, cause i would love to hit 12 years. at this point i am at 8.5 years, another 3.5 is probably doable. i hope. anyway, here are the mighty men of golden smog, just like the title suggests.

the whole thing

1. walk where he walked
2. ill fated
3. glad and sorry
4. yesterday cried
5. easy to be hard
6. v
7. revolution blues
8. love and mercy
9. wont be coming home
10. pecan pie
11. he’s a dick (470)

explosions in the sky live in nottingham, england, 2.9.04

morning, americans, and the rest of the world, good day. its amazing the pure raw emotion that an explosions song can bring out in me. there probably is no other band on this planet that can elicit such feelings, and they do it with no lyrics, which is even more amazing, at least to me. they conjure up memories, some great, others you may want to have forgotten. emotional rollercoaster….

buy an explosions in the sky record via amazon it will do your soul good…

1. intro
2. first breath after a coma
3. greet death (403)

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

Johnny_Cash-Nixon.0.0.0x0.499x348

firstly, i wanted to say y’all are amazing! truly! i really didnt think i would get but a few hundred bucks in this little fund drive im holding – look over there to the right, but you guys have really made a guy feel appreciated/wanted/loved/etc/etc. so from the bottom of my heart, thank you very very much. as you can see have about 1k left to raise, but would like to get a little bit more, not being greedy, but i really didnt take the fees from indiegogo and paypal into consideration. not your problem, mind you, but anyway, you get what im saying. again, i love you all.

anyway, here is a very cool johnny cash show/radio broadcast from amsterdam on 2.26.72.

1. a boy named sue
2. sunday morning coming down
3. these hands
4. me and bobby mcgee
5. old 97/orange blossom special
