radiohead live in berlin, 7.4.2000


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.

cmj sampler 2003

firstly, i was really surprised to see that cmj was still around, but it doesnt appear they actually are in the magazine business – the old business model. i subscribed for years from maybe like 93ish to maybe 2000? anyway, happy to see they’re still around even though they’ve been really out of my brain since the end of my subscription. i knew they still did the cmj conference thing, but thought that may be in name only. either way.. its interesting to see who they, or the labels in this case capitol was pushing back in 03. most surprising name on here is of course, verbena – mr a.a. bondy’s first band. i, of course, know they made the jump after what i consider to be one of the best debuts ever, souls for sale, which was released on merge in 1997. anyone ever hear of marjorie fair? yeah, me neither.

1. starsailor – silence is easy
2. radiohead – fog (live)
3. doves – your shadow lay across my life
4. dilated peoples – marathon

i have hated the cowboys since i was like 12 but i have disliked the giants since i was about 16. so, i am in a bit of a quandary right now cause if it were up to me neither team would win. in the end, i think i hate the cowboys just a little bit more. cant believe the colts went and fucked it up the way they did. phillip rivers annoys the shit outta me.

for those of you having issues downloading from here, i am assuming that the majority of you are using safari? for some reason captains dead doesnt like safari much and doesnt play nice. any other browswer that runs on a mac, of any kind, should work. i have tested opera, flock, firefox and ie and they all work fine. all apologies, but i have no idea how to fix it. you really shouldnt be using safari anyway. i find that opera and flock actually work the best. at least on my mac.

tomorrow evening, the 12th, in atlanta nickel creek and bela fleck play at the variety and caribou play at the earl. i have yet to hear caribou’s latest, andorra, but i was a pretty big fan of up in flames. dont know why i havent gotten around to listening to andorra yet? anyone dig it, hate it, meh? here is the first single.

melody day

daytrotter has an interview with dan didier and davey von bohlen, maritime, regarding their newest, and best, record, heresy and the hotel choir. they, of course, offer up a few daytrotter session exclusives.

for some reason, i kinda like chicago’s walter meego. there’s something oddly endearing about em that pushes aside my normal aversion to their kind of beats driven, dance rock type thing. i mean, i really really dislike, typically, that sort of shit. alas, even my typical hard line stance against stuff can be swayed, from time to time.

allow me to get sidetracked for a second. from walter meego’s site i ventured over to clay hauck’s everyone is famous site. he takes great photos and i have been a fan for a while, but jesus christ, after perusing through a lot of his nightlife pics i started to feel really, really feel. not so much old as in my mindset, but old in the fact that i cant believe how little shit has changed in terms of getting fucked up. i know thats really vague, but if you are 30 or older and dont participate, on a regular basis, in the activities of your early – mid 20’s go take a look at everyone is famous and you may get a sense of what i speak. i got really tired just looking through the pics, but tried to envision myself still in that world. my liver would never, ever had made it.

random question: do raves still exist? those pics kinda remind of the early 90’s raves, only much, much whiter.

another side note, that wont make any difference to anyone. my wife used to to be the sous chef/chef at darkroom for 3 years. darkroom is featured prominently throughout everyone is famous. if you ever go to darkroom tell arunas, or rooney as i call him, i sent you. might get you a free beer or drink.

oh, yeah here are two walter meego tracks.

romantic from romantic single

almost a star – walter sees stars remix

walter meego’s got a few performances comin up. namely, two shows on the 20th in nyc. the first is harp’s dance party at the cake shop and then brooklyn vegan’s late night part at club 205. they play in chicago at sub t on the 24th.

athens’ ham 1 is like shootin the shit, drinkin some beers, and playing some epic games of dominos with your friends on a thursday evening. there’s nothing particularly exciting about it, but its nice, relaxing and comfortable. ham 1 is fronted by athens schoolteacher and songwriter, jim willingham, backed up by eric harris, olivia tremor control, on drums as well as contributions from the lovely liz durrett, kris barratt of the capes and pete erchick also of olivia tremor control. so, he’s got a virtual cornucopia of awesome athenites at his disposal. he doesnt let their individual talents go to waste. if you dig fellow athenites vic chesnutt and jack logan or even the late great link wray then ham 1 will definitely put you in the mood for those late night escapades.

their new self titled record is out now. me thinks.

now, i like radiohead as much as the next guy, but i never really bought into the hype. i like em for what they are, a great rock band. nothing more, nothing less. with that said, in rainbows kinda blows. this is after only a few listens, but thus far not diggin it too much. i know i am not the only one that is mildly if not strongly disappointed.

here they are playing some acoustic numbers at electric lady studios 4.06.03

new radiohead album details, etc

soooo, radiohead has a new record coming out in 10 days?! its called in rainbows, you can order it here and apparently pay whatever you feel it is worth. if you feel its worth 10 bucks then thats what you pay, if you think its worth a penny and are cheap fuck then thats it. there’s a box set coming out in december that costs like 80 bucks or something, but it has a shit load of goodies with it. who knew?

i should mention that i scooped this about 3 hours before pfork. take that bitches!?
