johnny cash live in amsterdam, 2.26.72

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, September 25th, 2013


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

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
