Because I want someone (possibly a noizer) to give me endless reams of shit for my brilliant "US Maple does straightforward buttrock" realization.

i want us maple disco edits!

goole, Friday, 8 August 2008 15:57 (ten years ago) Permalink

do you make the US Maple comparison just for Paul Major's voice? Cuz I can see that. But US Maple were always a lot weirder than anything Endless Boogie does, and even them doing "straightforward buttrock" would sound pretty weird. I kind of read Endless Boogie as a Trad Gras Och Stenar/Canned Heat kind of thing.

Yeah, pretty much, and you're right about the USM comparision being off otherwise. But I probably wouldn't like this half as much as I do were it not for Major doing his thing (mostly because of brief exposure / preconcieved notions re: CH & co).

Man, I can be a dick sometimes. Yeesh. So, uh, have they gotten better? Haven't heard teh new one.

contenderizer, Friday, 8 August 2008 16:26 (ten years ago) Permalink

A little leaner. More "focused" perhaps. Keep in mind the two 12"s were unedited practice tapes, this is a studio record.

what about blues control? i still haven't heard either band. i'm curious though. i guess i should just myspace this stuff.

sonderangerbot, Saturday, 9 August 2008 03:08 (ten years ago) Permalink

okay blues control on myspace makes me curiouser. religious knives on myspace does not. endless boogie only have one jam/song up and it doesn't make me very curious.

in all honesty though; is a Träd Gräs & Stenar/Canned Heat-thing really a positive thing about a 2008 band?

i would KILL for a status quo/savoy brown/foghat cover band where i live called endless boogie. i would go see them every week.

there is a cover band here called the boogies, but they just play lame disco covers. and they wear afro wigs.

they are both good. the 2nd one is less spacey and more head banging, sweatier. that one should be easier to find i think.

Well it wasn't meant to be negative. Would it be more or less appealing to you if i'd called it a CCR/hawkwind-thing?

ian, Saturday, 9 August 2008 03:54 (ten years ago) Permalink

Endless Boogie rule ... SMOKING FIGS!!! .. but somehow the new one let me down in comparison to the live show...

the live show seemed to totally evoke that kind of free-form canned heat ("refried boogie") expansiveness ... Trad Gras, sure, heard that too .. they just were SUCH a sympatico live band, what with ups and downs and so forth ... this album is GREAT, and I've been rocking it many Friday nights for weeks now, but still it doesn't hit me *as great* as the guys did live...

Stormy Davis, Saturday, 9 August 2008 04:47 (ten years ago) Permalink

i am listening to The Fluid's 'Clear Black Paper' right now though, and i have to say it sounds better than Endless Boogie

Stormy Davis, Saturday, 9 August 2008 04:48 (ten years ago) Permalink

all i can say is i love any band that can bring ian, stormy, scott and GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ's back to the board. long live endless boogie.

Endless Boogie are fun live and pretty much the only good band that's played Jersey City (other than the big theater in Journal Square) since Uncle Joe's closed, so I like them for that. They're pretty boring on record though.

When I was living in Venice Beach, I had a fig tree in my yard. Beneath the tree sat the smoker I had built out of large terra cotta pots and a hotplate. The figs literally fell into the smoker and I took it as a sign. I took a bunch of ripe figs, cut them in half, placed them in a Pyrex dish cut side up, added a quarter-to-half inch of fruit juice (I used different juices on different occasions), and smoked them for a few hours . . . occasionally turning the figs in the ever-reducing juice . . . but always leaving them cut side up so they could more easily continue drying out . . . and then turning them cut side down for the last half-hour or so to soften the cut side a bit in the now-reduced-to-a-smokey-syrup juice. They were awesome with cured meats, on ice cream, and with just about anything else. Smoked candied figs! Shoot me an email if you want more info on how to build a kick-ass smoker for well under $100.

scuz clear black paper is a damn good record. listened to some of the new EB record. it's okay. improves on the early EPs, but not a whole lot. might be fun to see live.

Never heard of these guys until Pitchfork reviewed Full House Head the other day. Listening to it now, and they are officially the first good band I've ever learned about from that site. The riff to "Empty Eye" is pure Junior Kimbrough awesomeness. What I like about these dudes is that unlike a lot of other contemporary heavy blooze-rawk boogie outfits (Amplified Heat, for example), they don't tip too far in the direction of stoner metal. They're definitely in the spirit of early '70s stuff, but unique. Like this a lot.

Endless Boogie’s Paul Major credits the band’s former bassist with inventing the credo “When you get there, you gotta stay there."

When they "get there" they are pretty fucking awesome, so no arguing with that credo.

I don't know if I'm getting old or if Endless Boogie is legit the best rock'n'roll band out there right now. Finally saw them live last fall and it was scorching.

Anyways, their 2 initial private press LPs are getting reissued via No Quarter: https://endlessboogie.bandcamp.com/album/vol-i-ii

Also, the tour-only CDR/download No Favors is worth it for the two 20-minute jams alone, and a particularly beefy "Taking Out The Trash": https://endlessboogie.bandcamp.com/album/no-favors
