liz phair’s exile in guyville live at the fillmore, 6.23.08

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, September 24th, 2013


still one of the finest records ever made, and its a true testament that i am still listening to it, pretty regularly mind you, since 1993. also, i cant emphasize enough the importance of this record to 19 year old me, the first time i heard it.

anyway, here she is at the fillmore in san francisco on 6.23.08. this was part of her exile in guyville performances tour.

all my love to persistent for the recording…

the whole she-bangs

1. 6′ 1″

radiohead live in berlin, 7.4.2000

Posted by gregor on Sunday, September 22nd, 2013


dammit, sunday, already?!??! eh, could be worse, i suppose? not sure how much worse, but it could always be worse. i’ve never been shy about my love for radiohead. although, i fall into the i really dig their music, but dont necessarily think they’re the second coming of whomever. they do what they do, and they do it really really really well. anyway, this hear recording is amazing. if am not mistaken this was recorded a couple of months before kid a was released – i am too lazy to look up the actual release date.

dont feel like downloading the invidiually? here’s the entire thing in zip form – clicky here.

1. optimistic
2. morning bell
3. karma police
4. national anthem
5. in limbo
6. no suprises
7. iron lung
8. dollars and cents

primal scream live at barrowlands, 1998

Posted by gregor on Thursday, September 19th, 2013


hey, howdy, hi! i remember sometime in 1991, i was 17, randomly walking around my local record shop looking for something to spend my “hard” earned dollars on. i had made friends, over a couple years, with the employees and as such they would recommend and point out new stuff to me. this particular day, they recommended primal scream’s screamadelica, a band i had never heard of, nor heard anything by. so i put down my 11.99 plus tax on said record. went home, put it on, fucking blown away. turns out, i turn on 120 minutes the following sunday night and guess what song is on there, “movin on up.” i felt like i was ahead of the curve, and pretty awesome, admittedly. ive been a fan ever since, and this stuff is actually off my favorite primal scream record vanishing point, which is just absolutely fucking brilliant.

here is an fm broadcast of show from the glasgow barrowlands back in 98 that takes most of the setlist from vanishing point.

1. out of the void
2. stuka
3. burning wheel
4. if they move kill em
5. rocks

uncle tupelo live in st louis, 8.15.90

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, September 17th, 2013


top of the evening, y’all! funny thing about “y’all” after spending the past ten years in the south, i find myself saying it quite often, but it really never sounds right coming out of my mouth, but there is that whole “fitting in” thing. so, most of the time i resort to “you guys” which was part of chicagoan vernacular, and sounds natural. either way, you dont care about that shit. i have posted a lot of uncle tupelo shows over the past 8 years, but have never posted or heard this one. this was a benefit show for gary morris, not too sure who he is, and also this was was the farewell show for chicken truck????? anyone ever hear of them? apparently chicken trucks portion of the show was broadcast on kdhx in st louis. this show took place at off broadway in st louis…

1. before i break
2. atomic power
3. postcard
4. nothing
5. true to life

Posted by gregor on Friday, September 13th, 2013


totally spaced on this oldham record, what the brothers sang. someone mentioned it couple weeks ago, and quickly went in one ear and out the other. it is with dawn mccarthy, who i dont know anything about, but just judging by the video, below, it sounds lovely. it is after all an everly brothers cover record, so the chances of awesomeness are pretty high. but it via amazon

here he is performing on 10.10.98 in mcminnville, or, kslc fm.

1. intro
2. death to everyone
3. nomadic revery
4. a minor place

      sometimes its hard to put into words what an artists body of work means to you. most of the times you read reviews and its purely methodical. there’s no heart, no past history, just what they’re hearing now. sometimes music is a puzzle, and it doesnt make sense, until you put it all together. thats […]
