Superchunk - Cast Iron (live)

My favorite Superchunk song... No Pocky For Kitty just got re-released on vinyl and I've been listening to it non-stop for weeks now. So did On The Mouth which was recorded by John Reis from Rocket From The Crypt. Good jams there too but not as good as NPFK. Hands down one of the best indie rock bands from the 90's.....

7 inch records my dear Watson

So I opted for staying in this evening and watching Sherlock Holmes instead of going out tonight for The Mutiny's 20th anniversary party. I'm a lame ass in my old age. But I gotta say I was entertained by the movie. I expected it to completely suck and it didn't. Guy Richie did not disappoint. But it's still not better than Machete....

New 7 inch records that were brought home today:

Syl Johnson - Come On Sock It To Me/Try Me
Jerry Byrne - Lights Out/Honey Baby
Guitar Slim - Trouble Don't Last/Later For You Baby
Howlin' Wolf - Evil's Going On/Baby, How Long?
Little Walter - My Babe/Juke
Howlin' Wolf - 300 Pounds Of Joy/Built For Comfort

And I am excited for my first Sunday for football season! Life has meaning once again! 4 fantasy football leagues this year. I'm ready to tear it up! And some how I managed to score Peyton Manning as my QB in all my leagues.... it's a sign! Colts in the Superbowl!

Girls Against Boys - She's Lost Control

Nothing rules more than GVSB covering Joy Division.... they kill it. Kill the bass player... kill both bass players.......


Vinyl keeps a rollin' all night long...

It seems that a day doesn't go by where I don't bring home records. Good or bad... you decide. I have been on a huge Superchunk and Girls Against Boys kick lately (hint, hint) and have listened to both bands non-stop. Here are some new ones that I have gotten in the past 2 days:

Twilight - Monument To Time End
Boris and Ian Astbury - BXI
Thee Headcoats - The Sounds Of Baskervilles
Iron Madien - Seventh Son of a Seventh Son (UK Pressing)
Rudy Ray Moore - Eat Out More Often
Rolling Stones - Tattoo You
Black Sheep - A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing
Two Live Crew - We Want Some (You Know What)
Big Daddy Kane - Long Live The Kane
Tyrone Davis - Let's Be Closer Together

So a nice mix of stuff here huh? My taste in music makes no sense and I like it!

Got a new guitar pedal today.... yeah! It finally brings together the sound I was looking for. I have wrote 2 songs for G/A/A/G. I'm on a roll..... Lyrics are not my thing so that is going to be the hard part. I'll ask Jack Oblivian when I see him to write those for me instead....

The Carpenters Live At The New London - Goodbye to love

I think she borrowed this dress from Loretta Lynn... and took it in about 10 sizes.... I still love Karen Carpenter. It's all because of one shitty ass man in Billboard who wrote a review and called Karen a little chubby that sent her into her mass insanity to become thin as a stick. I officially sign up to throat punch that guy for pushing such a great singer into what I think was basically suicide. Wow.... I sound like Debbie Downer tonight....

If I were a carpenter...

.... I would be Karen Carpenter. Not that we have that much in common... I hate the taste of Ipacec Syrup, I don't weigh 93 pounds but we both do play the drums. I have no idea where this is going...

New Records:
Interpol - Interpol
Husker Du - Candy Apple Grey
Galaxie 500 - This Is Our Music
Slint - Spiderland

Is it me or does it seem like I get albums just about everyday? Do you think I have a problem/addiction? Is there a 12 step program for this? No, I'll just keep on truckin'....

After working my second "job" tomorrow, it's off to Kalamazoo! One bad thing about driving there this time of year, the deer are running and I'm driving at night. I do have deer horns but still those bastards will dart right out in front of your car. One thing I want to do while I'm back home: Machete! Or even Piranha....

Hello AmRep my old friend....

So I have finally made it back alive and in one piece from AmRep's 25th Anniversary Bash. I managed to keep my wallet safe and only dropped $40 on the new Dope Guns and Fucking In The Streets double 7". Limited to 200 copies mind you, one 7" white and the other black. Funny thing is, both of mine are white. Super score! And a God Bullies and Boss Hog shirt. You can never find AmRep shirts anywhere. The show was amazing! Got to see old friends from all over and friends that were moving away... that was sad. Met new people and kicked it Angie-style up front. In fact... I made the front picture of Brooklyn Vegan with Mike Hard. Well... at least a certain part of me did..... Gay Witch Abortion is my new fave band that they have signed and the guitar player in White Drugs was just about the cutest thing.... his belly shook like a bowl full of jelly when he played guitar. LOVED IT! Christina from Boss Hog kept her clothes on which I'm sure disappointed many a fellow there and Jon Spencer is still (Blues Explosion) #1! P.S. Melvins suck it now as King Buzzo and Big Business. Go back to Houdini... it's where you belong.

New Records:
The Necessary Evils - Spider Hands
Oblivians - Six Of The Best
Slim Harpo - The Best of Slim Harpo
The Watts 103rd Street Band - In The Jungle Baby
V/A - Battle Of The Garages
Love - Revisited

And also my pic that was on Brooklyn Vegan. Aren't we cute? Just think that I have known that man since I was 8 years old. We look good for our age.
