amy millan sets something on fire

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, May 16th, 2006

millan.jpg
so, i am guessing that over the coming months, amy millan is going to be getting a lot of press – if she has not already. as you all probably know, amy is a member of stars, who put out the most excellent set yourself on fire a year or two ago. she has a new record coming out shortly, may 30, entitled honey from the tombs, and if this song is indication of the quality of the record, its going to be quite grand.

mark kozelek at ottobar 2.23.05 II

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, May 16th, 2006

anyone see those new apple powermacs? that black looks absolutely delicious. if anyone wants to send one my way, i would not mind.

again, atlantians, mark kozelek is playing in our fair city on thursday at the variety playhouse. i am hoping he stays away from the modest mouse material, cause outside of never ending math equation i really dont dig his renditions. hopefully he sticks more with his own material, and then i will be happy.

5. not sure?

6. void

7. all mixed up

8. glenn tipton

9. never ending math equation

in other news, i have participated in an ongoing podcast featuring some of the most beloved and influential music bloggers from around the internets. the current theme of the podcast is “favorite track of the year, thus far” the collective podcast is the brain child of tim young, lovely chap he is.

portastatic's who loves the sun, coming soon….

Posted by gregor on Monday, May 15th, 2006

portastatic_film_02_screen.jpg

throught out my top 25 records of all time, you will find mr mac mccaughan related projects taking up 3 or 4 spots, depending on the day. his influence over my musical stylings is bordering on creepy, and it all stems from superchunk’s 1991 watershed record no pocky for kitty. at the time slack motherfucker was the greatest rock song i had ever heard, edging out another indie rock classic dinosaur jr’s freak scene.

without getting too teary eyed by remenicising about the past and how old we all are getting, mac’s other band portastatic has a new record coming out on june 6. the record is a film score for who loves the sun, which teams him up again with looking for leonard filmaker matt bissonnette. in case you didnt know or couldn’t put two and tow together, mac did the soundtrack for looking for leonard.

here are a couple o’ tracks off of who loves the sun.

taj mahal @ fillmore east, nyc jan 16 '71

Posted by gregor on Sunday, May 14th, 2006

taj.gif

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.

1-I’M SO TIRED
2-BANJO INSTRUMENTAL

3-GOOD MORNING MISS BROWN

4-AIN’T GWINE TO WHISTLE DIXIE ANY MO’

5-SWEET MAMA JANISSE

6-GOING UP TO THE COUNTRY AND PAINT MY MAILBOX BLUE

7-FARTHER ON DOWN THE ROAD YOU WILL ACCOMPANY ME

8-YOU AIN’T NO STREET WALKER MAMA HONEY BUT I DO LOVE THE WAY YOU STRUT YOUR STUFF

9-DIVING DUCK BLUES

10-CORINNA

drunk_passed_out_fool36764.jpg
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.”

sea.jpg

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.
