taj mahal @ fillmore east, nyc jan 16 '71

Posted by gregor on Sunday, May 14th, 2006


in my opinion, there is no one, dead or alive, who can touch the pure soul and emotion that is found in taj mahal’s voice.? if you have never listened to his work, and i recommend you do before you die, check out the natch’l blues, the blues or his self titled sophmore record.

this is a recording from the filmore east from ’71.? its a soundboard recording, and although i converted to APS it still sounds phenomenal.? if you really want a flac copy let me know.

one drink and the screaming trees live

Posted by gregor on Saturday, May 13th, 2006

my top 3 “i wish i could have drink(s) with” musicians

1. bob pollard

2. greg dulli

3. mark lanegan

in honor of my number 3 pick, here is a stellar show from the screaming trees suppolsedly from the reading festival circa 1992 – to be historically accurate its from 8.30.1992. if you have never listened to the screaming trees, i highly higly recommend uncle anesthesia or sweet oblivion. or if they aint your thing, any of the mark lanegan solo records are a sure bet, especially whisky for the holy ghost and i’ll take care of you.

1. before we arise

2. shadow of the season

3. alice said

4. where the twain shall meet

5. winter song

6. nearly lost you

7. uncle anesthesia

8. change has come

9. end of the universe

thanks to the fine folks at i love the atmosphere for making these available

the entire screaming trees/lanegan discography can be purchased at amazon or insound.

the convict and pulco

Posted by gregor on Friday, May 12th, 2006

today intern steve starts his community service in return for a stint in the slammer. he got hopped up one day on case jolt and a little cough syrup and went to the local mall to give some ladies a piece of himself. some of these ladies didnt take to kindly to his advances and when he was leaving the Alladins Castle arcade, they nabbed his ass. there goes his motto of “always accused, never convicted.”


so there is this guy straight outta wales, uk named Ash Cooke that goes under the moniker of pulco. i have listened to his stuff on myspace and from what i can figure its pretty darn good. he sounds an awful like teenage fanclub, at least to my ears, but much more stripped down. although, he does throw in some aural fuckery along the way.

he has a new record out on folkwit entitled undersea adventure.

enjoy your ride

mine eyes have seen the anti-christ(s)

Posted by gregor on Thursday, May 11th, 2006

i dont know who these kids are and why anyone would fuckin care about them, outside of maybe their procreators, but to me they look like the start of something terrible. terrible, and maybe evil, enough that i would waste precious time bringing them to your attention. what are they plotting? whatever it is we will all be lesser human beings because of it.

they showed up on yahoo, btw.

360 and great lake swimmers

Posted by gregor on Thursday, May 11th, 2006

anyone see aol’s lame attempt at cashing in on the myspace craze? that yahoo 360 looked promising at first but its just chalk full of chicks that should not be wearing what they are wearing asking me to view their profile. um, no thanks. i dont wanna chat, or look at you ever again. intern steve, on the other hand, is down with that sort of stuff. so, i signed him up for chick/dudes looking for “playmates” in his area. i think the site was naughty friend finder or something like that.


one record i wore the hell out of last year was great lake swimmer’s bodies and minds. their song various stages was my favorite of the ’05, and the version below, recorded live at schubas, is quite moving. this was recorded in september of 05 during their opening slot for feist.
1. moving shaking

2. merge a vessel a harbour

3. the man with no skin

4. lets trade skins

5. i will never see the sun

6. this is not like home

7. various stages

8. moving pictures silent films

9. innocent when you dream – tom waits cover

these precious moments and sir dark invader

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, May 10th, 2006


what’s up people of the internets? not much going on at captainsdead hq, but we did get our new fridge, finally. intern steve is out of the hospital, again, and is recovering on a plastic wrapped couch in his parents basement, which is right next to his mother’s “priceless” collection of precious moments figurines.

a record came out last year, which happened to be one of my favorites, that i think got mistankingly overlooked. i didnt even know about until i read a review of it somewhere, so it suprises me that there wasnt much word of mouth action before the release. in any event, i am speaking on richard buckner and jon langford’s sir dark invader vs the fanglord. i could go on and on about my love for richard, but as for langford, i have never been a fan for some reason. even with that being so, langford compliments richard very well and would love to hear a reunion record sometime in the future. apparently this was recorded in sally timms apartment sometime in 2002.

rolling of the eyes

i forgot to mention. while i am not a fan so much of langford’s music, his art is way fucking cool. check out his website linked above.
