Stew & the Negro Problem—Notes of a Native Song

curmudgeon, Sunday, 6 January 2019 02:20 (six 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.

nathom, Friday, 18 January 2019 23:06 (six months ago) link

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.

Tajak - Ciclos

Epic drifty psych from Mexico

Well, ok, most of the songs are about 5 minutes but they still suspend time

Was digging that Mex groove late last night

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

braunld (Lowell N. Behold'n), Monday, 28 January 2019 01:58 (five months ago) link

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

V/A: Nouvelle Ambiance !​!​!

A celebration of the underground Pan-African music scene centred around Paris in the 80s featuring never-before-reissued productions and dancefloor sure-shots taking in new forms of dancefloor-ready Rumba, Bikutsi, Soukous, Boogie and more.

Harmonia's Documents -1975 is so surprisingly essential. Blows me away every time.

Berkely Community centre 1972
slightly surprised by the lack of horns but still pretty sublime really. I guess those parts are taken over by the Indian string things here. Did Alice move away from horns at a certain point or something

Alec Palao's best of the 60s recordings by th eall girl band from SF. Garagey with some long somewhat jammed out tracks and some shorter acapella stuff. Maybe not the greatest band on the ballroom scene but interesting anyway. I like this, got some good stuff on.
They didn't get a deal together despite a few offers, then felt they weren't in a position to tour since some of them had just become mothers. Which is pretty sad. Finally got a first studio lp out a couple of years ago.
I listened to a Deeper digs in Rock History podcast on them a few weeks ago which got me interested in hearing this. So now i finally have a copy after meaning to get it when it came out.

Australian contemporary psychedelic band. Quit e spacey, cardinal fuzz recently got some copies in as a repress of the lp from 2016.
Nice stuff.

With an Extreme Burning (aka The Tormentor) (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Thursday, 11 July 2019 02:31 (one week ago) link

yeah, def my fav of duul version 1. just got the wah wah reissue which puts a track from their single at the end of each side changing the flow of what i was used to on the cd, but i can live with it!


pretty sure this is the only seventies era stivell i'd not heard before: some of the tracks on here probably the proggiest he ever got... also comes with a neat poster

i picked up toy love's 1980 live album and it rules

Karl Malone, Sunday, 14 July 2019 23:26 (five days ago) link

i've never heard all of their sole full length album, but the live 80 versions are much better than their every album counterpart that i've heard. don't make the mistake of youtubing them because you'll just get all the lame album versions of all the songs

Karl Malone, Sunday, 14 July 2019 23:35 (five days ago) link

gotta be careful out there, on youtube

Karl Malone, Sunday, 14 July 2019 23:35 (five days ago) link

Man i always try with the duul every few years and just can’t hang with the vocals (pvmic). I always just end up wanting to listen to Jefferson Airplane for some reason.

brimstead, Sunday, 14 July 2019 23:49 (five days ago) link

I’ve been soooo into this lately, might’ve voted for it in the ambient poll:

thank you for this rec! wish it wasn't sold out already!

Karl Malone, Monday, 15 July 2019 01:00 (four days ago) link

yesterday i purchased:

jon hassell: power spot (so excellent)
toy love: live at the gluepot, 1980 (only listened to half, but excellent so far. early kiwi punk, members later going on to form bats/tall dwarfs
tangerine dream: zeit (a top 40 ilx ambient album of all time, you bet your ass it's good. i snagged a very, very clean original copy too)
david crosby: if i could only remember my name (if i could only remember i already had a copy of this, dammit)

(ps brimstead i am loving this komachi. Sento [Pt.II] is hitting the spot)

Karl Malone, Monday, 15 July 2019 01:13 (four days ago) link

overall i would give my record shopping experience a 9.7

Karl Malone, Monday, 15 July 2019 01:13 (four days ago) link

this komachi is reminding me of jon hassell, actually, and of course that is the highest compliment

Karl Malone, Monday, 15 July 2019 01:15 (four days ago) link

oh wait, it's not sold out! only the super limited 50 copy version was sold out. thanks for the head's up!

Karl Malone, Monday, 15 July 2019 01:22 (four days ago) link

lol at "THIS KOMACHI". it's by Meitei. please forgive me, i am very tired

Karl Malone, Monday, 15 July 2019 01:24 (four days ago) link

nice! Glad you like it. Good score on the copy of Zeit!

brimstead, Monday, 15 July 2019 02:02 (four days ago) link


first amon duul (ii) i heard was a borrowed copy of the live in london lp and remember my main impression at the time was the heavy ja vibes it gave off (a good thing!)

didn't know about the live toy love release. think the story goes that their studio lp was recorded with a not particularly sympathetic technical crew on a trip to australia with dire results... recently had some non-music related correspondence with chr!s kn0x, mostly communicating via selfies on his part o_O
