I was cleaning out that back of a closet, and I came across some tapes I made over twenty years ago.

I thought I had lost them.

It's been fun to listen to what I found interesting when I was about 20. I mentioned in another thread about Elton Motello, and it's my tape of his "Victim of Time" album I've been using in the van, along with Uncle Teddy Nugent. Interestingly, and rather mercifully, I had manually "faded out" some of Teddy's brainless five minute nothing but incoherent noise ending to his songs.

Yes, there's my C.C.R. compilation too, of stuff I liked by them that never got on the radio.... "Keep on Chooglin'" and "Ramble Tamble", to name a couple.

And, yes, the Vibrators "Pure Mania" is there, along with the Demics, some Pretenders ("Uuuhhh why don't we do it....do it on the PAYyyvment....)

My Jethro Tull tape is pooched, the BASF tape not standing the test of time like my prefered choice, TDK-SAC-90's.

There's more, like the B-52's, Dave Edmonds (author of the best rock 'n' roll song ever-- "Heart of the City") and of course a couple of "Who" tapes, and some Clash. I've been playing the role of the old rocker who wore his hair too long, and his trouser cuffs too tight this summer.

But, what is irksome is there's a couple tapes still missing. My Ramones tape isn't there, and niether is a compilation tape I made for driving to the beach. (starts out with "Rockaway Beach" and gets better from there.... I seem to remember it had the B-52's "Devil in my Car" and some Iggy Pop (probably "Raw Power") and a lot of other really neat bouncey drivin' tunes.

Lost also is my tape with Willy Alexander and the Boom Boom Band's "Radio Heart". I want that guitar to sear through my brain just one more time......

Man, The Vibrators "Pure Mania" is a great album, and totally under-rated! I got it when I was in high school in the 80s, and now I see it in CD stores for usually under ten dollars!! Buy it, people, it's awesome!!

Dashboard Confessional are awful. While My Chemical Romance could be considered emo they lean more towards punk/hardcore.

The Monks "Bad Habits" falls under that category too. I'm feeeling anxious right now, so I'm listening to Fugazi. Once that is out of my system and I get an end of week drink in me, I'll probably settle down to some Social D or Cash.

I must say this suprises me a wee bit. While I enjoy his other discs, to me nothing comes close to the quality of "Wolves". I just took it out of my stereo, and it has been replaced with...

"48 hours" by Ryan Adams (an un-released album that I think is his best).

In part the aggessive sexuality on it bothers me somewhat. I like my soft and gentle or playful Hawksley, rather than the slightly panting nature of the desire on that album. It seems the cheapen the music. But, my friend told me it took her several listens to really adjust to the style, and now its also her favorite album of his. So, back in the discman it goes...tommorow.

Today, its all about Metric.

Today at work it's The Glorious Sound of Brass: Renaissance and Baroque Masterpieces, performed by the Philadelphia Brass Ensemble and the New England Brass Ensemble. I've also listened to The Baltimore Consort's The Art of the Bawdy Song and some Bach Viola da Gamba sonatas.

Man, I should bring in my walkman with radio, so I can listen to CBC Radio 2 during the day. Maybe that way I wouldn't get so bored of the CDs that I have.

I second that awesome.

Modest Mouse, by dint of their greatness, are still great on "Good News . . ." but I'm wary of success making them more poppy, less biting and cynical. "Moon &" was a decidely better album. They looked a little too much like Collective Soul for the 00's in a Rolling Stone article I saw recently. *shudder*

Postal Service I liked better than either of the "main" projects by Gibbard and Tamborello; too bad the real US Postal Service is making them change their name last I heard. Not that it matters too much, I guess. Oh, and Soulseek does kick ass; someone had a nice torrent pack done up on Suprnova with all the Postal Service b-sides and covers in one shot, but its not there now pm if ya'll need to get hooked up with some nice Phil Collins covers by the guys. Iron & Wine do a nice cover of "Such Great Heights" as well - uberfragile and delicate.

Matthew Good!

Yeah, I know, he's kind of Can-Rockish, but I really like him! His music sounds genuine to me. Plus, he's not afraid to be political and angry and he rants alot which is fun to listen too.

Plus, he links to rabble from his website!

Yes'm, sort of; its the lead singer of Death Cab on vocals, but most of the production and beats were done by Jimmy Tamborello, aka Dntel, electronic glitchpop kinda work normally. Not a huge fan of Death Cab; I dl'd their discography a couple of months back, but haven't been listening to it much.

Hey, I like Roger Miller too. Though my dad laughs at that line in "England Swings" about "the rosy red cheeks of the little children." According to him, nothing rosy about kids' cheeks there.

But in answer to the thread- a CD of hillbilly gospel music that I picked up in St. Jacobs today. Instrumental only, but just to make sure I counteracted it I went to a used bookstore and picked up The Viking Portable Nietzsche (which includes The Anti-Christ.)
