Stew & the Negro Problem—Notes of a Native Song

curmudgeon, Sunday, 6 January 2019 02:20 (ten months ago) link

which I hadn't been aware of but turned up in Sister Ray. Overview of the label over a couple of decades. From early Savage republic to solo Bruce Licher. & several of the bands he released including Camper Van beethoven who are represented by Take tHe Skinheads Bowling which might be too obvious a choice. Nice lp anyway.

been meaning to pick this up for years and it was in Sister ray at the same time.

I knew the name for years, not sure if i had really heard them before the reissue

slowly picking up physical copies of all the 60s Trane.

should have picked this up in Rough Trade cos it was a bit cheaper. Have listened to it since i got home and bought it online now.

2nd lp by the early 70s yodeller/experimental singer

74 rock lp by band I remember from their Bubblegum hits

experimental lp by singer i've been meaning to check out for a while.
Interesting, may prompt me to check out more of her stuff.

comprehensive compilation of 60s mod band I've loved since the Edsel compilation came out in my early teens. Xmas present from my brother.

Becky G - Shower. Blame my 12 yo.

Live material from Simply Saucer in 1975 that makes up the 2nd disc of In The Red's Cyborgs revisited double lp.
Hadn't realised there was a different drummer by that point.

to be clear, are we supposed to post album covers (no links) in this thread?

i don't think it matters? generally just covers are posted but i doubt anyone would be mad

King Crimson, Audio Diary 2014-2018. A 5CD box, one disc for each year. A very short track from the 2017 disc comes from the show I attended.

Current London based folk singer's lp on rituals etc concerning May. She has a great voice and is trying to update folk , but I'm surprised by the inclusion of songs with very archaic sympaties, as I was when i saw her playing live yesterday.
Had teh choice of 3 cds by her after the gig. Not sure if i went for the best one, this i sher latest one which has Daviud Tibet guesting on one track. Quitie nice, not sure it's her best of the 3.
Gig was good, was part of a series of afternoon concerts that have happened at the local university. Enjoyed it anyway.

The only one of the remastered cds that I have got so far . Hope i get a chance to get the other 3 or the whole box.
THis sounds great now anyway. Not sure when the last time I heard teh actual lp was, I don't think I had it on cd and don't think I found any kind of remaster for it anyway. Later 2 of the Flying Teapot trilogy seem to have had some attempt at sound improvement on earlier issues i think.
Wish I'd got both voilumes fo Daevid Allen's GOng Dreaming before SAF disappeared. 2nd one is pretty great.
NOt sure what I'm missing in terms of linernotes & packaging by having the individual cds not the box too.

Current oregon based psych band who have this released through cardinal fuzz.

Something has come over me, and I'm listening to loads of Black Metal. I liked this band The Black Dahlia Murder...but to wade through the crap on Spotify's Black and Death Metal lists is a chore.


I like this because it's dark and scary but funny at the same time. I can hear the similarities between indie and hardcore I used to like, and I didn't expect it.

despite the circa '67 photo on the cover this is from the april '71 fillmore run (with duane allman sitting in on the first 3 songs)

I'm listening to (criminally overlooked) Belgian experimental/post rock band De Portables playing Sinead O'Connor's Troy but making it sound like Venus In Furs

AC Marias was a good cheapie I took a chance on earlier this year. Fit in well with the Dome reissues and the Michael O'Shea I was listening to during my crazy summer of Bruce Gilbert projects.

InternationalWaters, Sunday, 3 November 2019 14:07 (two weeks ago) link

Probably about time it got a remaster. I have the cd from the late 80s I think.
Had it on vinyl back around then too and the 12" of Time Was.

Stevolende, Sunday, 3 November 2019 16:49 (two weeks ago) link


would really like to know where this was shot.
I got the idea it was Blackstock rd at one point. But would really like to know.

Finally discovering lana del rey

nathom, Sunday, 3 November 2019 17:45 (two weeks ago) link

This morning I was thinking about Sultans of Ping FC during my drive to work, and thought I would listen to them when I arrived to find out if they were any good, best part of 30 years since I heard them. So I listened to them when I got there and no, they were not any good, really not.

Ninajirachi's "Lapland" album is pretty great imo, if you're into that kind of thing

underd0g, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 21:10 (six days ago) link

& having perused the liners, i see that pentangle preceded the dead on that day; wonder if their performance is sitting in an archive somewhere!?

now listening to the "glastonbury fayre" dark star which after wiki-comparing timings with the complete europe '72 set turns out to have been truncated by nearly ten minutes :-/

no lime tangier, Friday, 15 November 2019 07:23 (three days ago) link

There was a rumour for years that all of the fillmore gigs had been recorded which appears to have born some level of fruit over the last few years.
So would be good if it was true of support bands as well as headline acts.
There is a 1968 set from one of the fillmores though I think it might be the East.

Stevolende, Friday, 15 November 2019 10:26 (three days ago) link

Ah dunno why I'm confusing ISB with Pentangle.

Stevolende, Friday, 15 November 2019 10:30 (three days ago) link

yeah, i remember that isb release coming out, but don't think i've ever actually checked it out... did find this: pentangle playing the fillmore east a few week before their fillmore west show

but for now all i want to listen to is

no lime tangier, Saturday, 16 November 2019 12:47 (two days ago) link

I know I have some live pentangle somewhere. Several live sets that were torrent ed over the last few years or maybe decade. I think at least one may be Fillmore but I haven't seen the folder in a while.
I think their beetle known live sets are London though. Sweet Child and whatever is on the early 00ies box set but can't think what that is or are they the same recording?

Stevolende, Saturday, 16 November 2019 14:18 (two days ago) link

Still need to get that. I got the Parson Sound one and the Harvester and one of the Trad Gras och Steinar.but somehow never got Sov Gott

Stevolende, Saturday, 16 November 2019 22:33 (two days ago) link

i love that album
