Let's make a new version of this classic thread, the other one has simply become too bulky with almost 500 answers. Which music did people waste their cash on recently?

    Thanks to Momus I went and bought a Jake Thackray comp at the weekend, and it is quite wonderful. Surprisingly lush, I imagined a much more ascetic sound from my memory of him appearing on TV in the early 70's.

    Also Boogie Down Productions by all means necessary.

    And yesterday I got Nilsson's As time goes by- complete Schmillson in the night sessions.

    Robert Ashley 'Wolfman' (if you sprang for the vinyl, i wouldn't rebuy the CD for the extra tracks, as I did, like a dummy. 'Wolfman' itself certainly lives up to its reputation though)

    awh, now I want to go listen to 'malesch' again

    This record, and to an extent this band, is shockingly good. Apparently, someone forgot to make them as famous as Can and Faust.

    That ISO record is good.

    dleone (dleone), Wednesday, 16 April 2003 17:49 (eighteen years ago) link

    yeah I wish otomo had kept 'ISO' around longer, much more varied and interesting than the 'filament' stuff. I saw them live in SF in 98 and i was feeling pretty alive. watching the drummer play with a live microphone instead of a drumstick _because of the sound_... oh hell I'll just start an Otomo thread or something.

    'malesch' is very very impressive... ok I will go check out 'second'.

    milton, Wednesday, 16 April 2003 17:57 (eighteen years ago) link

    sachiko m's often just simple pain for me. but I loved her track on the 'improvised music from japan' box set, it was busy and filled with details, made my ears happy rather than sad, so maybe I just have more listening to do...

    but the malkmus record is really nice, dr. c! i listened to it in the evening sun in frankfurt centre on my discman. a return to form. the record is a little bit too long, especially "1% of 1" is bollocks but overall i am not disappointed.

    Julio Desouza (jdesouza), Wednesday, 16 April 2003 21:26 (eighteen years ago) link

    RS, I'm listening to it right now. Some songs I really loved right away ("Hurting Each Other" and "Rainy Days and Mondays" are alone worth the price of admission), some I wasn't as mad for at first. I was somehow a little surprised by the 'dentist's office' vibe of the first few tracks but they've grown on me by the second listen. On the whole, it seems pretty good. "Sing" is really good too.

    sundar subramanian (sundar), Thursday, 17 April 2003 00:08 (eighteen years ago) link

    I grew up hearing most (or possibly even all) of these songs, so I know what to expect, but I've never owned anything by the Carpenters. I was thinking I would just buy through their albums, but I think I'd rather get a collection like this first. I don't want anything with recordings that has been too tampered with.

    Rockist Scientist, Thursday, 17 April 2003 00:17 (eighteen years ago) link

    Wait, now I think "Sing" is kind of cheesy.

    sundar subramanian (sundar), Thursday, 17 April 2003 00:20 (eighteen years ago) link

    The last thing I got was an album by Ingrid Caven called "Abendstern", which is either the worst thing I ever bought in my life or one of the best, I'm not sure yet - but it was only 99p and has a very attractive cover and vinyl is so much sexier than poxy CDs. Ingrid of course was married to Rainer Werner Fassbinder and this is the other reason i bought it....

    The Susie Ibarra disc is lovely. I had listened to it before actually. It has warmth, gentleness, and subtlety. The instruments play against each other in a way that comes off perfectly relaxed and 'natural'. I don't think it's *too* wild. There are a lot of warm melodic phrases in it that clearly suggest the South/East Asian influences, some beautiful dynamics in the intricate percussion work. I find some of it a little mysterious-sounding, and much of it sort of sensual (which might be partly because it reminds me of a Susie Ibarra fan I had a crush on some years ago).

    A little more on the Frith: I'm happy with the crispy clean, full production. Everything feels very impassioned, from the pretty and sometimes aching melodies to the full strumming to the violent noise.

    At the end of the day I'm still not a huge Prince fan so far. The Parliament is awesome though.

    sundar subramanian (sundar), Friday, 20 June 2003 22:33 (eighteen years ago) link

    Oh yeah, there's a brief droney Pauline Oliveros accordion solo on the Ibarra. Somehow I get the impression this disc might appeal to you, RS. It's on the 'mellow-garde' side.

    sundar subramanian (sundar), Friday, 20 June 2003 22:51 (eighteen years ago) link

    Friend of my boyfriend works at BMG Music Online, so we dropped in last week while I was briefly in NYC. There were abandoned CDs everywhere and she said help yourself and made it clear I should take a lot. But most of these CDs were abandoned for good reasons, I have to say.

    CDs I kept:
    Nonesuch Explorer Series (reissues on CD) - Tahiti (Gaugin Years), Java (Jasmine Isle), Bali (Music for the Shadow Play)
    I Muvrini - Pulifunie
    Ahmed Abdul-Malik - Jazz Sounds of Africa
    Alfred Schnittke - Choir Concerto & other choral works
    Chemical Brothers - Come With Us

    A few other CDs went to my boyfriend's Mom, and the rest I traded in, at a shop back home, for:
    Loud Family - Tape of Only Linda
    Belle & Sebastian - Lazy Line Painter Jane EP box set
    Drive Like Jehu - Yank Crime reissue
    !!! - "Me & Giuliani..." EP
    Beach Boys - Sounds of Summer compilation

    Also while in NYC, I bought:
    Audio Bullys - Ego War
    Thomas Fehlmann - Visions of Blah

    ''Nonesuch Explorer Series (reissues on CD) - Tahiti (Gaugin Years), Java (Jasmine Isle), Bali (Music for the Shadow Play)''

    got a couple of discs of this series (both are gamelan discs). good stuff.

    Julio Desouza (jdesouza), Saturday, 21 June 2003 07:55 (eighteen years ago) link

    I'm pretty excited about the Java and Bali discs -- among other things, I think they'll give me a basic idea about the different gamelan traditions in these two regions. The school where I teach has a large gamelan program, with both Javanese and Balinese ensembles, and I've always felt I ought to know the basic differences. (Something beyond "Balinese = faster and more sparkling"...)

    I am SO ANGRY!! I bought this 2CD set 'Disco Freakout' to get some tracks to burn for my friend John's birthday party mix CDs. This mutha was £16.99 and guess what - they've (spit) *remixed* all the tracks together in one continuous sequence. Imagine some fake-tanned Ibiza-twit Darren fucking with the tempo and adding 'nu' beats onto such classics as 'Boogie Nights' and 'And The Beat Goes On' and 'He's The Greatest Dancer'!! There were also fake shouts and whoops of joy from people 'partying' dubbed on!! Imagine that!! How dare this, this.... THING exist! It never said on the packaging ANYWHERE! There could have been a warning - " Remixed exclusively by D.J Clueless C*nt from Basildon". Needless to say it went right back to HMV today. Arse!!

    on the lookout for: i need a collection of mississipi john hurt's early recordings, all of them, but hmv only had the 60s stuff and selectadisc didnt have anything with him. to amazon i go!

    radiohead - hail to the thief (on one hand i am slightly disappointed that the versions are so close to the mp3s which emerged on the interweb a couple of months ago. godrich was bullshitting everyone. on the other hand those versions could not be topped. very angry about the record company that the cd does not run on my cd-rom drive. swearing to myself that i won't buy copy-protected cds anymore. probably i won't be able to hold that promise to myself.)

    cure - trilogy live at the tempodrom, berlin, november 2002, dvd (have got mixed feelings about this. still think that pornography is totally overestimated. there is an amazing song though. a strange day. it's better in the concert than on the original cd. this song is like an ascent to heavens. the drums are fantastic. building up to droneland. there is a moment when the guitar plays when time stands still. simon gallup on bass is ace. and his live performance is very cool. stopped the video after the first song on disintegration. can't digest those mystic hovering wagner-vorspiel like keyboards anymore. can't hold back from the notion that this is fascistic aesthetics. haven't listened to the rest. will probably never listen to bloodflowers. i must admit that i regret very much not having seen that concert though. the video has got something very professional and cool about it. smith doesn't look like a forty-something. as if his body had been frozen somewhen in the eighties. maybe he is ageless. still hate the same thing about videos i have always hated about them. too many cuts. there is no camera shot of more than two or three seconds.)

    The trick with live DVDs if you can't stand to watch them is to just listen to them. Mmm.

    Ned Raggett (Ned), Sunday, 29 June 2003 17:17 (eighteen years ago) link

    Just picked up Glenn Branca's The Ascension and Triple R Friends. My god!! I listened to the Branca last night extremely loud, and it floored me. The opening bassline in the first movement is completely badass. And jeebus is Friends ever amazing! Track 1 sounds like all the good parts about the opening 1-2 punch of "Everything in its Right Place"/"Kid A" made into an extract and laced with an actual groove -- all the way down to the slightly-distressed-but-bored glitch vocals and the billowy synths (heck, even the chord changes are reminiscent of "EIIRP"). Beautiful.

    Heh, Marcello played "The Ascension" on his show the other day and damn it was good indeed. Good to finally hear it after years of hearing about the darn thing.

    Dr C , I recommend you check out the Miles disc. No doubt Marcello or mark s can discuss it more eloquently than me, sufficient to say it's the under acknowledged bedrock of all that scratchy post punkfunk we know and love.

    Received in the mail:

    Farid el Atrache: Eternal Songs, Vol. 1
    Abdel Halim Hafez: Resala

    The string sections on these Farid songs are getting to me a little. I think I like the stuff on Vol. 2 more, but it wasn't available. I don't like the chorus too much either. (So glad Oum Kalthoum mostly did away with having a chorus in the background.)

    Yes you do Jim - and you can still get a free Crispy Ambulance live CD with Black Music if you order it soon (they appear to have sold out of free the Section 25 CD that was given away with initial copies of The Night Watch).

    Because I compiled that list from my on-line order history at various places I managed to omit one of the - if not THE - best album I've acquired recently:

    FourFathers - Dust

    I'd start a thread about The FourFathers and their incredibly talented and verstaile bass player Benjamin Horrendous if I thought there was a reasonable chance that anyone else here had heard of them and might contribute to such a thread rather than leaving it to sink slowly and ignominiously to the depths.

    Everyone who likes good experimental rock music - especially Captain Beefheart - really should give them a try 'though:

    Then, maybe, when you've bought all the albums (tell Ben I sent you if you are ordering anything btw!), we can have a proper thread about them, eh?
