The last couple of CDs I bought were the sountrack for Snatch and the soundtrack for Oh Brother Where Art Thou.

The next CD I plan on getting is Rebuild the Wall, by Luthor Wright and the Wrongs (at least, I think that's the name of the band.) It's their interpretation of Pink Floyd's 'The Wall', done in the style of country/blue grass. CBC Radio's been promoting it a lot lately.

I saw Frank Black in concert last weekend was blown away. The guy just rocks and gives you your money's worth. 2 and a half hours/35 songs! All the way from the Pixies to new stuff. 20$! And you paid 100$ for U2 and waited in line 10 hours

I saw Frank Black play here in Montreal back in Jan., although I don't think he played for 2 1/2 hours, but he did put on an a great show.

Yo La Tengo played for about 2 1/2 hours, and Tortoise played for 2 hours when I saw them play just this past week.

I just bought Jets To Brazil "four cornered night." Of course, I bought it on vinyl. its a double LP pressed on white vinyl. very nice indeed.

The only Bikini Kill album I have is "Pussy Whipped" although I don't listen to it anymore, actually I was about to sell it, but didn't. I prefer Kathleen Hanna's work as Julie Ruin or in Le Tigre.

Neutral Milk Hotel are simply amazing. How I'd love to see them live. those damn elephant 6 folk.

I'm wishing I bought the woodchoppers album when I saw them play...i can't find the album anywhere these days. drats.

I'm listening to Gentleman Reg, "The Theoretical Girl". I just want to pinch his cheeks, he's such a cutie. But I wouldn't. That'd be embarassing.

Carlo, the Woodchoppers would be on DROG records, wouldn't they? There must be a copy of their album in Guelph. I could try to hook you up, if you'd like.

The other night on Much More I saw a Steely Dan concert. Wow. I've never actually SEEN them before, they were just a name and Rikki Don't Lose That Number to me.

Wow again. I was amazed. I immediately went bonkers on Napster. Another few songs I've been listening to lately are older ones from Napster as well (I guess I'll be dating myself, but here goes):

Rasputin (Boney M)
Strut (Sheena Easton)
None Of Yo Business (Salt n Pepa)
Safety Dance (Men Without Hats)
Nineteen (Paul Hardcastle)
Amadeus (don't know the artist)
A few other 80's songs that I liked as a teenybopper and high school student.

A friend (exactly the same age as me) and I went to a couple of pubs tonight (that's why I'm typing here so late) and we were trying to stump each other by naming a song title and seeing if the other person knew the artist. That was pretty fun, especially with one hit wonders.

The new Hawksley Workman and Flashing Lights discs are pretty cool. Besides that, been digging Low "Things We Lost In The Fire", Pennywise "Land Of The Free", Mogwai "Rock Action" (this disc is SO good!!), and The Be Good Tanyas "Blue Horse". Oh, and next time you can't shake the grogginess in the morning, put on Captain Beefhearts "Trout Mask Replica." The sheer weirdness'll getcha buzzin' faster than multiple pots of coffee (as I found out the hard way).

I've also pulled out my Radiohead and Beta Band discs because I'm going to see them live this weekend.

I love cap't beefheart. so weird. so very very weird.

Mogwai were amazing when I got the chance to see them play. The few songs that are on Rock Action which they played were 10X better then on the record.

I'm listening to Flying Saucer Attack's "Chours"(drag city). Its good shit yo.

I've got a few jazz CD's of Miles Davis, Charlie Parker and T. Monk (I'm not even going to try to spell his first name) in my player right now. However, over the past few weeks I've been listening to everything from Morcheeba and the Cowboy Junkies to Spearhead and Rage Against the Machine to Bob Marley and the Beatles.

I guess I hop around a little bit.

What've I been listening to? God, I've waited too long to post here again. So much bottled up...

Miles Davis - Someday My Prince Will Come: this always seems to come on my CD changer when I'm Babbling. It's an underrated album, because it came out during Joe Cool's most fertile period (Kind Of Blue, Sketches Of Spain, etc), but it's pretty killer based on it's own merits.

This Swedish band called Kent. They have an album out called "Hagnesta Hill" that I can't stop listening to. It's incredibly derivative: the first time I heard it about 1,659 bands immediately popped into my head, but they wear their influences pretty coolly, thanx!

CanCon: The Dears "End Of A Hollywood Bedtime Story" (according to people, including complete strangers - long story - "I hafta see them live"), Moka Only "Lime Green" (straight outta Vancouvers burgoning, underrated - read: better than Toronto's - hip hop scene), Joel Plaskett Emergency "Down At The Khyber", Tricky Woo "Les Sables Magiques", Be Good Tanyas "Blue Horse" (I think I may have mentioned them in another post, but these folkie girls rawk the house!), Duotang's new one. Oh, and local heroes The Evaporators catchy/hilarious "Honk The Horn" 7-incher.

Other relative newborns from Built To Spill, Radiohead, KRS-One, and Air. For some odd reason, I've pulled out my old Smiths records . Odd in the fact that hearing Morrissey whine in 45 minute increments doesn't exactly make for frothy summer listening.

Double post, sorry...

Someone recently turned me onto this project called The Moog Cookbook. Both their CDs (one of 70's rockers, one of 90s alterna-hits) are done with Moog Synthesizers as the only instrument, including voice. Basically these two guys bleed all the sex, drugs and rebellion out of previously recorded rock songs and serve them up as near-grocery store muzak. If you want to know how it really sounds, just picture R2D2 doing karaoke.

It gets old kind of quick, but it's good music to wash dishes to.

Wow, that's an extensive list Liam. I liked how you included Ozzy with "crooners." And it's all good with the exception of Metallica, my mortal enemies. Oh, and I'm not too fond of Deadguy either...too much "argggh blaggghhh" for my liking.

I actually went and saw Fugazi a couple weekends ago for the first time. Needless to say, they were amazing and the venue (a junior hockey arena which had never before hosted a concert) turned out to be surprisingly good. I like the all-ages shows - watching the kids go apeshit makes me feel that young again I guess. And Fugazi still have tickets at $9...I love these guys!

I might go see Reverend Horton Heat this Friday, but I'll probably just end up sleeping. Six-day work weeks involving physical labour-intensive jobs just aren't worth the money, I tells ya...

Oh you gotta see the Good Reverend. If for nothing else, go for spiritual reasons (I've seen them twice). I must admit that Deadguy and Integrity and the like appeal to my earlier years and bad moods. I used to listen to a lot of harder edge punky stuff like The Accused but now I've aged a bit and my tattoos are starting to stretch, and if I consider dying my hair, it is to cover the grey ones.

So now I often listen to more mellow stuff like Social D and my teenage animosity towards Ian Mackaye's technique of crowd control has turned into appreciation. I will always enjoy going to see Fugazi, because he reminds the kiddies not to jump on each others heads and to be respectful of each other. And go see Hepcat if you have a chance, they rock like stars.

I've only heard a couple songs by Hepcat but they seem alright. I'm a relative pure-ska neophyte, except for the punk hybrids like Operation Ivy. Although the Planet Smashers last record was pretty good.

Yeah, I probably should see the Rev, but I'm just complacent because they play Van so often. This is the second time in less than a year (last time I was out of town) so I guess desire for sleep overwhelms any sense of urgency I may have. I have heard that the crowds at their shows are eclectic to say the least.

Oh, and I'm happy to report that the Vancouver Fugazi kids were very well behaved by Mackaye standards. I heard he stops shows if they're not.

Yeah, he stopped a show for me once 13 years ago and every other time I've seen them there has been policing stops as well. It's like being in a classroom with a strict teacher. Now that I'm a good student, I'm not so afraid, but back then....

Hepcat, like all ska is better live than recorded. I haven't been overwhelmed by their recordings but their live performances are the some of the best ska performances I've ever seen (with the exception of maybe Gangster Fun and Bad Manners in '88).

As for the Reverend I have to confess that he comes to Detroit all the time and I miss him regularly. That being said, I'm not in church every Sunday either and I should be.

Social D is great. Mike Ness' solo records aren't half bad either. I realize he still has a few years left ahead of him, but at least he's branching out and trying something a little different. Rare is the rocker who slips into their golden years with a shred of dignity, much less a punk rocker (but I won't name names *cough* John Lydon *cough*).

Regarding the live-ska thing, last fall my little brother came to the big city and I went with him to see Less Than Jake, whose records I have always found to be slightly worse than horrible. But even they sounded alright, and it turned out to be an entertaining show. I still think the discs downright suck, but I learned that they do a serviceable cover of that seminal 80's Tommy Tutone hit "867-5309 (Jenny)".

Music makes me relax, or gives a good boost along with a honey-lemon martini on a hot tropic evening, sitting under the ceiling fan, it's usually something like Cal Tjader or Coltrane... I emjoy writing to jazz or classical music. But when the cops took away my scooter licence ( it was expired ) and fined me the equivalent of 150 CDN for turning right on a red light, well, then it's time for some hardcore thrash. I also enjoy listening to Calas sing, "Mon coeur, mon souvereign." Also, when feeling too far away from all my long lost friends, a compilation of late sixties early seventies British folk-rock: can anybody guess her surname, her first is: Sandy -----. Also I like reggae and some underground kinds of rhythm, some R.L. Burnside screeching and Howlin' Wolf, and way back to J. Geils and Steely Dan, too... I like new music sometimes: "you'll never get the money back for the love you lack..." Did I quote the b>$#^h right? How about a little taste of Dizzy or some Joni Mitchell? Give me some more ice, darling... Take me away... I'm fading from sunburn and the ocean was up to my neck and about 30 degrees celsius on Sunday. Water seems cooler than lying on the sand...

The girl who was reared on The Clash, The Sex Pistols, The English Beat, The Specials and all their kin has surprised herself by falling in love with the Charlie's Angels soundtrack. I haven't actually seen the movie but every song on the disc makes me grin. Goofy but true.

I recently bought a Propaghandi disc that I'm liking and I encourage everyone to get any disc by The Weakerthans. They're opening for The Lowest of the Low and Billy Bragg on August 2 at Ontario Place, if you love them like I do.

Hmm. I went to see Charlie's Angels, which made me grin, so I can see why you'd like the soundtrack. (I too was reared on the Clash et al, but only after I got all the Foreigner and such out of my system. Small-town Ontario in the 70s. Feh). Favourite scene: the one featuring Pizzicato Five's "Twiggy v James Bond." Can't imagine a better movie use for this song.

My current fave raves: The New Pornographers' "Mass Romantic" (sigh... Neko!) and Guided By Voices, "Do the Collapse" (the store was sold out of "Isolation Drill" when I went). Tom Waits and "Astral Weeks" on occasion, like comfy old boots.

And I'm *seriously* glad the Lowest of the Low are back. I missed 'em.

The first time I went to see the Weakerthans last fall it sold out before I got there - I was so choked. When they came to town with the Lowest Of The Low at New Music West I got my tickets good and early. It was a decent show; the sound was a little weak, but that's not the band's fault. We didn't get Billy Bragg though too; aren't you the lucky duck.

Propaghandhi is pretty wicked too; how can anyone dislike a band that writes a song called "Homophobes Are Just Pissed Cause They Can't Get Laid"? Well, except for the homophobes I guess...

I saw The Weakerthans a couple weeks ago in guelph.....i wasn't overly impressed actually....It wasn't a particularly tight show....I really liked The Constantines though....

Emily + other guelphies - ever go to the hillside festival? I'm thinking u have...where else would u hear the woodchoppers association....lol

I noticed someone mentioned Kinnie Starr...I think she is just awesome....I've been to see her in concert several times and I highly recommend it....

right now i'm completely obsessed with michee mee, and meryn cadell...

Ani Difranco's new CD is also quite good...it just takes a while to grow on you.

Hawksley Workman is just delcious....I love a man in a feather boa.....

*sigh*
i miss guelph already.

Bran Van 300, "Discosis," and the new Cake, "Comfort Eagle" rock my world lately.

Embarrassing but true music story: I'm about to fly back from Edmonton for what I hope is the last time, for the next few months anyway. Some musicians get on the plane, including a big, funny fellow carrying a snare drum in a box.

I ask him about it, and then ask the name of his band. Turns out it's Prism -- yes, the (really rather lame) CanCon Prism some of you might remember from the late 70s/early 80s (I was a fan for about two months when I was 17). They'd just played a show in Wainwright with the Headpins.

I should have just said "cool" and left it at that. But no, I was tired and groggy and so had to put my foot in it... I said "Wow, I used to listen to you guys. 'Course, that was years ago."

I could see the words flying away from me, and in my mind I groped frantically to bring them back, but if that worked there'd be a lot fewer embarrassed people in the world. I threw in "nothing personal" by way of saving face, or sparing him the old-rocker blues. But of course, it was too late.

Talkative though he was, he didn't address another word to me for the rest of the flight. God is merciful, anyway. S/he placed Edmonton and Vancouver only an hour and a half apart by Westjet flight.

Meow, I did indeed see the Woodchoppers play at Hillside two years ago (along with Hawksley Workman - I can't get enough of him, either). I'd heard of them before, though, as they'd played at the university a year or so before that, and I'm such a Rheostatics fanatic that I follow people (like Lewis Melville and Dave Clarke) who were connected with them at some point, too.

I was at that show with the Weakerthans and The Constantines, too. I was a little disappointed with The Weakerthans' set, too, but it was still pretty good. And to tie this all into the topic, I'm listening to the Constantines right now.

I saw Rheostatics two weeks ago in Edmonton. Despite technical hassles it was an excellent show, and for once I got to sit close to the stage.

I was disappointed to find that they were on their third drummer though, Don Kerr now playing with Ron Sexsmith. Their new guy was great, but Kerr's so versatile. He plays cello, which is practically my favourite instrument these days. And he was the snappiest dresser in the band...

I don't think they've actually chosen their third drummer yet. I thought Michael Philip Wojewoda was just filling in until they'd found a replacement. (At least, I'm assuming it was MPW you saw play the drums that night.)

off topic....but anyone here going to the Eric's Trip reunion show at the opera house on Friday? It will be interesting for sure....They used to be one of the most innovative indy bands out there....And I really like Julie Doirion...

Emily and other guelphies might have caught her at Hillside this year...she accompanied Gord Downie....she does interesting psychedelic folk punk kind of stuff....

I have yet to pick up the live album by Jeff Mangum. My excuse is that I'm poor and I wont be paid until this coming friday. Maybe then I'll buy it. But mostly likely not because I'll be spending money to see The Minders play here in Montreal. Unwound is the next night and I's got my ticket for that already.

It was pretty good, considering the lethargy of the crowd. When Duotang and I Am Spoonbender (who had to top the spectacle of the previous act's Narduwar the Human Serviette duetting with 80's metal god Thor on the Evap's "I Don't Need No Friends To Tell Me Who My Friends Are") played, they had to compete with rising voices from the bar.

The New Pornographers were great. I was surprised how faithfully they were able to re-create the songs in a live setting, right down to Carl Newman's transcendent falsetto. Obviously, there's not a lot of Protools happening on that album. Or at least if there is, it's understated and in good taste.

My repetoire as of late has been mostly Canadian artists actually.

-Les Sables Mystique new album from Tricky Woo...hard ole fashion rock n; roll from this Montreal based group. Lotsa Zeppelin and Cream influences.

-The Sixty Watt Party by More Plastic....awesome second album by one of Toronto's favorite indie band.....very John spencer-ish...

-The New Pornographers.....I Love Nico Case!!!!

and outta Africa......The Best Best of Fela Kuti.....

Anyone share the same tastes?

I saw Bif Naked last night in Ottawa. Wow. If she wasn't on cocaine last night then there's something seriously odd about how her brain naturally functions.

I also saw A Conga-Line Crush . Yeek. Those guys are like an 80s hair band without the hair. Blech. The lead singer looked like a poorly-done clone of Brad Pitt.

Luckily, the weekend wasn't a total loss. Gob played on Saturday. Those guys rock the free world.

Two songs have alternated running thru my brain over the last 25 hours:

'It's the End of the World as We Know It' - REM
'Smart Bombs' - Boingo (Danny Elfman)

Bruce Cockburn's 'If I had a Rocket Launcher' certainly could be added to this playlist.

Anybody got some suggestions to fill it out?

During the Gulf War, Britain banned any song about war or fighting on British airwaves. Even "Saturday Night's All Right For Fighting" was banned.

I wonder if they're doing something like that today.

CBC Radio 2 was playing very serene music this morning.

I remember listening Iggy's "Blah Blah Blah," not one of his best but one with the line "pop before the war."

It may also be the only rock song ever to mention Shimon Peres, as in "Shimon Peres/Whatcha gonna do?"

"Pink Moon" more and more seems to me a prophet's warning against complacency.

I've been listening to Martin Tielli's new album, We didn't even suspect that he was the poppy salesman, quite a bit today. The last song really reminds me of "Take Me By The Hand" by the Rheostatics.

I have to get that Tielli disc. I'd forgotten he was putting one out.

Years ago, I lost my cassette of "The Future," by Leonard Cohen. Yesterday it was one of two CDs the lovely Maria gave me as a third anniversary present.

The other was Iggy's "Lust For Life."

My tragedy soundtrack (music is the best balm there is):

*Mogwai - EP+2, Rock Action
*Amon Tobin - Supermodified
*Moby - Everything is Wrong (It's true that he's a soulless cash whore, and every soccer mom this side of the andromeda galaxy now owns a copy of "Play," but these factors still can't dull the sheen of his fantastic records)
*Treepeople - Guilt, Regret, and Embarassment
*John Coltrane - Soultrane
*Stereolab - Sound-Dust (their best since "Emperor Tomato Ketchup" IMHO)
*Deltron 3030: The Instrumentals (Automator could put out a CD consisting of nothing but a dial tone, and I'd still be interested)
*albums by Hawksley Workman, Rheostatics (because I have tickets to their upcoming concerts)
*Neko Case: Furnace Room Lullaby
*Pulp: This Is Hardcore, His n' Hers (new Pulp out middle of October - huzzah! )

Plus my car tapes featuring I Am Spoonbender, Lenny Bruce, Sleater-Kinney, Weakerthans, Ramones, Built To Spill among others.

I recently borrowed two discs that are great.

One is Roots Manuva's "Brand New Second Hand." British hip-hop!

The other is this British magazine compilation called "Why Don't We Do It In The Road?" which is twenty-four, um, let's say eclectic artists doing covers of Beatles songs. Worth checking out, even if you aren't the world's biggest fan of the band.

The old Rocker wore his hair too long,
wore his trouser cuffs too tight.
Unfashionable to the end drank his ale too light.
Death's head belt buckle yesterday's dreams
the transport caf' prophet of doom.
Ringing no change in his double-sewn seams
in his post-war-babe gloom.

Now he's too old to Rock'n'Roll but he's too young to die.


I don't listen to nuthin no mo'. Not since they put the kibosh on Napster. Think I'm going to go back to paying through the nose to a bunch of theives who wigged out because I stole from them? Fat chance, man.

I say deal out some Karma to them and buy independant or nuthin.

Back in the Napster days, I enjoyed taking some music like "Train kept a rollin'", and listen to the covers by Johnny Burnet, The Yardbirds, and Aerosmith, back to back to back. It's interesting to hear the different takes over the decades. Same with listening to Johnny Cash and George Thorogood do "Cocaine Blues" Or Muddy Waters and George Thorogood doing the "House runnin' blues." (one bourbon, one scotch and one beer)

Fun's over now kiddies. I've paid copyright when I bought this freakin stuff on vynyl, then technology changed, and these freakazoids wanted me to pay it again, buying $20.00 CD's that cost them $2.00 to make. Hey dudes and dudettes, I may have been born at night, but not last night.

Actually, despite what the RIAA and the media would have you believe, there are still file-sharing servers up and running. Gnutella seems to be down at the moment, but Aimster (www.aimster.com) is quick to download and operates the same way as Napster. Obviously, it lacks the content of it's departed predecessor, but is still better than nothing.

Actually I heard, when manufacturing in bulk, it costs something like 20 cents to make a CD. That's some nice profit there.

Awesome rant, Tommy. I agree completely - I've hardly bought any CD's in a couple of years, since I bought my 13 or 15, or whatever, from CDHQ. I think they're owned by Columbia House now, and the original deal of CDHQ (which worked out to between $4-5 per CD) is long gone, absorbed into the Columbia House rip of--I mean deal.

Sorry I swore at the end; I don't often do that but it kind of fit, I thought.

Loreena McKinnet is on an independant label, I gather. A friend told me about her rendition of Alfred Noyes' "The Highwayman" and I had to download it from Napster.

I will in good time purchase the CD-- anything else I like on it besides "The Highwayman" will be bonus.

Never really got into Iron Maiden because it was a favourite of loogans who saw me as a weirdo, but there's plenty of skeletons rattling around in my closet...

Skeletons. Oh my. Just about anyone who bought music in the 70s can come up with a Short Shameful Confession or two.

Anyone remember Styx? Boston?

No? Good.

I got rid of such rubbish long since, y'dig, but for whoever up/out there keeps track of Music Karma, they're still on my Permanant Record (... record... record...)

"Iron Maiden? Excellent!" I'll admit to it. They have Bruce back! Yay!

I had a boyfriend who was 11 years older than me before I met my husband, and his coming of age music was 70's stuff while mine was 80's stuff. Not only did he have major skeletons in his vinyl collection in the closet, but he was proud of them! He used to call 80's music drivel and bubble-gum music, but the Partridge Family music? Oh, they were classics. Brr...

Has anyone heard "The Lowest Highest Point" by Moxy Fruvous? It's such a funny song. The whole song is a game they play with the audience (a US audience), asking them to name the state with the lowest highest point. People are yelling out answers like Maine, and New Hampshire...it's pretty funny, because the singers are yelling, "Maine?! Maine has Mount Washington! F**cking Mount WASHINGTON!"

Well, you have to hear it to appreciate it, I guess. Just listening to my Moxy CD right now...

Michelle: I've decided to join you in the fluff

For the past week all I've been listening to was "The best of Bob Dylan: volume1".

Does anyone know if volume two is better or worse? I've been toying with getting it.

Meades, it's worth getting volume 2 just for "It Ain't Me Babe", "Subterrainean Homesick Blues", and "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35". But that's just my opinion. I really like Bob Dylan.

a good near - napster caliber site is www.audiogalaxy.com I got it off the yippie2k web site ( someone is trying to revive the yippie movement, though not very well.)

This is where I found all the Dead Prez (Animal Farm kicks!), The Coup, red dagger, and Rage against the machine that I've been listening to.I've also gotten a lot of peter tosh, propagandhi, sick of it all, dead kennedy's, and Anti-flag's "don't give up zapatista". The radical left is sure getting it's "props" nowaday's.

I picked up some new records.

The American Analog Set "know by heart"
The Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-La Band "born into trouble as the sparks fly upwards"
Set Fire to Flames "sings regins rebuilder"

Three amazing records if I do say so myself.

Tonight while babbling, it's a mixture of music. Just got through Frank Zappa's Dangerous Kitchen... "Who the fuck wants to cleeeaaan iiiiit? It's disgusting and diiiiir-tyyyyy..." Heh. Good song. My kitchen sometimes resembles The Dangerous Kitchen, so I can relate.

Went to a going-away type shindig at a bar last night for one of my best friends, who's moving to Grande Prarie, Alberta for a swell-paying job (culture shock, anyone?). Anyway, today I threw on the Smugglers goofy "Vancouver BC," just to remind me how lucky I am to be here.

Also, the new Mixmaster Mike and Ozomatli are pretty great. Oh yeah, and if "Electro-Shock Blues" is your fave Eels album, the spanking new "Souljacker" is a soundalike, but in a good way.

Oh, and that superhyped Sigur Ros record is one of the few that actually deserves the accolades. The second song is one of the most beautiful things I've heard in a long time.
