I can't find my Toe Fat album. The 2nd one. It might still be in storage.

I did find my Dust album though. The first one. The one with "From A Dry Camel" on it.

scott seward (scott seward), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 00:56 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I only have the Toe Fat one with Ken Hensley on it. OK, I lied, I have them both for some reason. I even have Repertoire records versions with bonus tracks! They sorta suck though. I file them next to H for Hensley along with Head Machine (which goes there anyway) and Weed. However I keep my Gods (UK edition) records separate.

Ha Ha!! That's okay, Matos. I understand. But I've been listening to all those Kompakt cds I bought two weeks ago non-stop and I need some thud to clear my thoughts.

For realz, i've been jamming to Superpitcher and Triple R NON-STOP!!! But come on, Dust!!?? Dust were great!

scott seward (scott seward), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 01:11 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I like that song on Hard Attack called like "Time" or something, but I remember the rest of that album sucking.

Daniel DiMAGGIO (Daniel DiMAGGIO), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 01:13 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I like the first album better, but they're both great. Do you like Metallica?

Broheems (diamond), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 01:15 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

It's getting too late for me to play the loud stuff (shhhh, the baby is sleeping), so I put on the album by ONE on Grunt from 72. Incomprehensible hippy gibberish!! But I love it. The singer pretends she is a trumpet and a flute!! At least I think she is a she.

The singer had the best name in all of rock, too. Are you ready for it: REALITY "D" BLIPCROTCH !!!

I wonder what the "D" stood for.

scott seward (scott seward), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 01:22 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

do I like Metallica? yeah, or Kill 'Em All. What does that have to do with Dust?

Daniel DiMAGGIO (Daniel DiMAGGIO), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 01:52 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Oh, I just think that the vocalist has some fairly pronounced pre-Hetfieldian stylings. Not saying JH was even a fan of the guys, but the similarities are there. It really comes across on that cut "Suicide" from Hard Attack, I think.

Ned, if it makes you feel better, you have my permission to change the thread title to: "This Is Where Scott Goes When He's Bored" Cuz I might just end up talking about microhouse cds or The Numbers Band CD I got in the mail.

El Sabor - Buy all Gun. And buy all Three Man Army while you are at it. There is plenty of wonderful guitar stuff to marvel at.

M@tt He1geson (Matt Helgeson), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 03:06 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

We had some Gun talk. I always wanted to like them more than I did. Still love that "Yellow Cab Man" song though. I actually pawed a mint Baker-Gurvitz Army lp the other day, but I didn't buy it. I bought Lindsey's Law and Order and a Franco Battiato cd instead.

Broheems (diamond), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 03:08 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Ah, Battiato. I'm going to be writing the liner notes for a tribute album for him, oddly enough.

I have to go to bed, but please continue talking about Nitzinger, Battiato, Toe Fat, Kompakt cds, and some thud-rock that Matos would probably really like. I'm thinking he would dig some Tucky Buzzard. Do you think he's ever heard the first Captain Beyond record? (not that it's thud or sludge per se, but don't you think almost anyone you know would love that album?) Bobby Caldwell should run for president.

Hahahahahahaha!!

Anyway, Reality is sitting in my office, and I take out my pen and he says, "Maurice, this is what I want. On band three, bar 30, I want a
marijuana leaf to pop out."

I write down, "Band three, bar 30, marijuana leaf pop out." Pop out of the record. He's putting me on, right? But I write it down!

I said, "What else?"

"One more thing, one more thing." He takes a deep toke. "One more thing, Maurice, one more thing."

"Yeah?"

"At the end of side two, as it rejects, I want the record to self-destruct."

So I write down, "End of side two, self-destruct." I wrote this down on a piece of paper.

"Why do you want it to self-destruct?"

He takes a toke and says, "You know why I want it to self-destruct? Because they'll go out and buy it again and I'll get double sales."

You got it!

I recorded a song for a Battiato tribute last year, but it's for an Italian label (Sillyboy), so I guess that's less surprising.

Uh, that IS the tribute I'm writing the liner notes for! I'm friends with the label owner Marco. So wait, which band are you in again?

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 13:45 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

ha, Marco is wonderful. I'm in Oneida. I hope our song is actually appearing on the comp...

Hurlothrumbo (hurlothrumbo), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 13:47 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Last I checked you were on the tracklist! I'm supposed to be getting a copy soon so I can mumble about it all. I met Marco hanging around the Julian Cope boards a few years back and invited him to join this mailing list I'm on. Then he told me about this group he managed...

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 13:49 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

He introduced all of us to Battiato -- uh, the music, not the man -- for which I'm totally thankful. And Jennifer Gentle, of course.

Hurlothrumbo (hurlothrumbo), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 13:52 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I was supposed to write about the new Oneida album, but it took me too long so my editor did it instead. I think you got lucky. ( not that I don't like the album, I do. But I had several pages of notes on Oneida Indians and 19th century utopian communities)

scott seward (scott seward), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 13:52 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Yeah, the Sub Pop tie-up makes me very happy for JG. And get this -- much to my utter amazement, Marco told me that Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes wrote him the other week to say he was a JG fan! I guess I have to grudgingly credit him for that much.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 13:53 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Oh, are they on Sub Pop now? that's very cool for them -- I'm so out of all loops. Which one is Chris Robinson, the tall one or the short one? I like the short one.

Scott, reviewed for the Voice, I'm guessing? heh, that would have been totally appropriate subject matter -- although it's always fun to hear Mr. Eddy's take on anything.

But seriously, can't we talk about the Maximillian record instead?! And other, lesser oaf-rock too! Scrubbaloe Caine!

Hurlothrumbo (hurlothrumbo), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 13:57 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Yeah, got officially signed earlier this year. And Robinson was the tall insufferable singer geek.

Er, Chris that is.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 13:58 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Hmm, I like Rich, then. Or Rick, whichever. The guitarist. Does he have a famous wife too?

And Spooky Tooth -- seriously, what a band! And they gave the world not only Gary Wright and Mick Jones, but Ariel Bender! Mike Kellie! How can any band compare to one that splintered its way into Foreigner, Mott the Hoople, and the Only Ones?!? Plus, "Cotton Growin' Man"!!!

Hurlothrumbo (hurlothrumbo), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 14:04 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I saw her on the cover of some maternity mag once, so I guess that counts.

Reality has gotta die, Man.
Considering the space Oneida has occupied on the show over the years, I just thought I'd let you know that 8 Miles High burned it's last one last night. I ended with Master of the Universe and then left Music for The Other Head on repeat for the evening. When I got to the bar, my friends thought I was still on the air, screaming "I've gotta Pee!" over the music. If you gotta go...

Sean Witzman (trip maker), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 14:31 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I will dump a joint on the ground in honor of the fallen 8 miles high tonight for sure. email me -- that's my actual address -- let me know what's going on if the show's history...

Oh, and "High on Mount Rushmore" is moronic, but has great singing. I don't know "Mount Rushmore 69" at all. Agreed on Spooky Tooth -- I even like both eras -- I think the "reunion" lineup is awesome. And I'm serious about where all those people ended up; it's so cool.

Hurlothrumbo (hurlothrumbo), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 14:34 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I'm listening to Puzzle right now. Great power-trio. Almost as good as Thunder & Roses. A little too nimble to be considered thuddish or thuggish. I think Broheems said he was a fan.

scott seward (scott seward), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 14:41 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Xpost. On a “weird records” kick, I actually played the “Come” album by "One" on Grunt the other day – had it for months, but this is the first time I’d listened to it. What tedious crap! I really would have hoped for better from a guy with the imagination to call himself Reality D. Blipcrotch, but most of it sounds like the Ray Conniff singers mildly stoned on Mexican shake. There are a few interesting moments, like the brief rave-up with the kettle going off, but if there was anything like the ambient sound of a cosmic wave or a reefer leaf popping out of a groove, I must have missed it.

briania (briania), Tuesday, 18 May 2004 15:40 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

You don't like Reality's crazed throat/mouth/lips singing where he imitates flutes and stuff? I die laughing when I hear that record. One of THE WORST uses of a sitar on a rock record. Briania, did you read the kettle story on that link above?

scott seward, Wednesday, 16 April 2008 16:02 (nine years ago) Permalink

not thud per se, but fans of the riff and the heavy and the extended solo will find cool stuff on the new hotheads mix i put up today. just in case you missed it:

sweet smoke for hotheads vol.3 - beards on fire with love

threw a frantic track on there at the end. but check out the third world track and the ross one and the rabbitt one and the savage grace one and the bull track. and the tiger track. and the gangsters of love one. and especially the peace & quiet track "looney tunes" which is a fierce and way over the top heavy rock instrumental that will make you pee your pants a little if you play it loud and you are drunk. the teegarden & van winkle track is hot too. off of the only album i own with a song credited to both bob seger and gary shider.

five months pass...

hey, you know what? my intensity mix is still up online. i thought it was long gone. well, in case you missed it the first time, here's the track listing and link:


Tracks - Street Fighting Man (So rare you won't even find it on a WFMU playlist! Seriously, many great songs and albums only exist on the interweb as part of an old FMU playlist. I know, I've checked! Anyway, Tracks were a Boston-based band and they made one triple-album(!!!) boxed set(!!!) in the early 70's of seriously accomplished hard/prog/southern rock jamz and nobody has ever heard it. But now YOU have! A little.)

Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart - It's All Happening On The Inside/Abracadabra/Jumping Jack Flash (The whole first side of Tommy & Bobby's greatest achievment is one long song/suite, so you get three interlocking parts. I've played this at least a hundred times over the years. They are my gods.)

Mandala - Come On Home (Mandala made one late-60's white soul album that yields exactly one song with a guitar solo so sharp and piercing that it will leave you bloody for weeks.)

Noah - Bury The Remains (death-pop piffle. a bit of a breather.)

Glass Harp - Changes (In The Heart Of My Own True Love) (More fireworks. Courtesy of Phil Keaggy,a guitar god if there ever was one. Three amazing albums of powerful prog/hard rock and then Phil was off to do the lord's work.)

Orion - While My Guitar Gently Weeps (*Token Novelty Number* But, you know, with lots of crazy guitars.)

Redwing - Soul Theft (rockage.)

The Gentrys - Stroll On (genius rockage. from a genius album.)

Song - Medicine Man (So hard to pick one song from this album. It's all good. This is the mammoth closer. It has to be the heaviest thing that Curt Boettcher ever had a hand on.)

Circus - Stop Wait & Listen (Local pop-rock band from Ohio makes an album of cool rocking stuff, puts it out on their own label, and then...well, nothing. This one coulda been big. Maybe.)

Terry Brooks & Strange - Mister Strange (This is what cult guitar heroes are made of. From 1980 and released on Terry's own Star People Records.)

Harvey Mandel - Bite The Electric Eel (Noodles! Lots and lots of noodles!)

The Max Demian Band - See Me Comin' Down (Cool Thin Lizzy rip from Herman Hesse obsessed hard rockers.)

Dirty Angels - You Got Me Runnin' (Another great album from an unjustly forgotten band. This thing just keeps on giving.)

A Foot In Cold Water - Yalla Yae (Canucks invent the new wave of british heavy metal years before the fact and don't even break a sweat.)

Valhalla - I'm Not Askin' (Again, hard to pick one song. One of my fave records of all time. Along with label-mates The Damnation Of Adam Blessing, Valhalla were made of greater stuff than most. Now on CD! I think.)

Underground Sunshine - Gimme Some Lovin' (Best known for their Beatles Birthday cover, this is simply 8 minutes of senseless mindless fuzz abuse.)

Thee Image - Show Your Love (Unbelievably over-the-top. A friggin' monument to over-the-top. A word to the wise: always buy a record if someone in the band is wearing a cape on the back cover.)

scott seward, Tuesday, 21 October 2008 21:20 (eight years ago) Permalink

and you can still listen to side one of my last hotheads mix. for some reason side two cuts off after the track by the esperanto orchestra. here's side one:

(1971) curtiss/maldoon - man from afghanistan

(1970) houston - hairy one

(1972) teegarden & van winkle (with bruce) - going down

(1970) bull - feelin' pretty good

(1976) tiger - ordinary girl

(1973) gangsters of love - never is too soon

(1975) rockin' horse - love do me right

(1971) guillotine - hands of children

(1974) aut' chose - le freak de montreal

(1971) peace & quiet - looney tunes

decent looking comp, although I have a lot of it. I love that Highway Robbery track .. definitely the highlight of their one LP. I used to play that all the time on my Thud-rock themed radio show. and "Up All Night" has always been my favorite SRC track. do I really need "Persecution" on yet another comp tho? I don't think so. there *are* other good songs on that Third Power lp.

I still think the two heavy psych comps that Bevis Frond put out are the ones to beat. introduced me to a lot of stuff i didn't already know.

Stray had quite a few moments. Suicide -- the very next album was their heaviest. The first had a bit of flower-power, as once can hear in that tune, in it.

Saturday Morning Pictures was about their high point in England. A few years ago there were at least two anthologies in circulation, both giving the curious a good place to start. They tried quite a few things on for size over the course of their career, often resembling a poor man's Status Quo.

I have a few of their record, pretty much like them all.

I totally recommend the s/t, post-Van Them album on Happy Tiger circa 1969. This is the thuddinest track, the rest is like heavier garage stuff, a surprisingly decent cover of "In The Midnight Hour," a song that should generally probably not be covered.

The first one always gets called boogie rock. I don't hear boogie, though. I hear THUD.

Has everyone heard "Rumblin' Man" by Cactus. Jesus Christ! Dunno what it's on other than the "Cactology" set.

I mean it was "previously unreleased" when that came out.

It was included on the Rhino Handmade set of their complete studio recordings, but that thing goes for $70 and up on eBay/Amazon.

That Gasolin track is tight, btw.

Wanna buy the whole world copies of Cactus' "Restrictions" album right now. Some amazing, epic jams on there. Couple of throwaways but they're short and not annoying.

Also, PINK FAIRIES FINLAND FREAKOUT = AWESOME.

This drummer reminds me of a Bill Ward. "Evil" is great.

I found a remaindered cd copy of Silver Metre the other day @ HPB.

I still haven't heard them! Good?

Silver Metre-It's pretty good. I was expecting something heavier. It's stripped down--Leigh Stevens comes off in check, playing simple rhythm guitar with o/d solos instead of piling on masses of sludge. The singer sounds like a mushmouthed Lee Michaels. The covers are somewhat far afield-- "Superstar" (as in Jesus Christ...) and three early Elton John songs, including "Ballad of a Well-Known Gun" which is like Country-Thud and my favorite song on the album.

That said, it still can get plenty heavy:

doesn't thud out of the gate (do flutes negate thud?) but the samples i've heard of the new Steel Mill reissue might appeal

It's getting too late for me to play the loud stuff (shhhh, the baby is sleeping), so I put on the album by ONE on Grunt from 72. Incomprehensible hippy gibberish!! But I love it. The singer pretends she is a trumpet and a flute!! At least I think she is a she.
The singer had the best name in all of rock, too. Are you ready for it: REALITY "D" BLIPCROTCH !!!

I wonder what the "D" stood for.

I kinda like this record.
