one month passes...

I thought this may appeal to some of you...

Why's that?

Man I haven't listened to Bob Drake in like 8 years.

Evan, Monday, 9 May 2016 20:15 (three years ago) link

I thought it had a flavour of Lilys in there

MaresNest, Monday, 9 May 2016 21:49 (three years ago) link

Oh, I agree! Ok, just making sure there wasn't more to it. I mean, there is a guy named Kurt involved.

Evan, Monday, 9 May 2016 22:39 (three years ago) link

BD could make an absolutely killer '66 era pop psyche album with one hand tied behind his back, his voice alone is custom built for those summery harmonies.

two years pass...

Was this oral history of post-shoegaze Lilys ever posted here?

New to me! Thanks for sharing

one month passes...

I suppose my holy grail would be the Lilys 'Send in the Subs' CD-R, I can barely get a decent quality rip of it never mind an actual hard copy.

― MaresNest, Wednesday, February 13, 2019 3:39 AM (two weeks ago)

I lost my copy! Wish I could help you out...

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Wednesday, 27 February 2019 16:59 (eight months ago) link

city worker hooked us up in 2016 but not sure if the quality was good enough for Mares

Evan, Wednesday, 27 February 2019 17:03 (eight months ago) link

Thank you both! I would love a higher quality rip than 128kbps, the search goes on! Maybe I should try and ask Kurt :)

MaresNest, Wednesday, 27 February 2019 17:25 (eight months ago) link

He's pretty active on twitter...

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Wednesday, 27 February 2019 22:49 (eight months ago) link

320kbps rip on slsk right now.

Elvis Telecom, Thursday, 28 February 2019 01:16 (eight months ago) link

YSI?

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Thursday, 28 February 2019 04:04 (eight months ago) link

I did a search on slsk yesterday and have just done one now with no results, whoever they are we don't keep the same hours I guess :)

MaresNest, Thursday, 28 February 2019 10:50 (eight months ago) link

there's a user now ("f**d*ngb*ck") who has most of it in 192

Elvis Telecom, Thursday, 28 February 2019 20:18 (eight months ago) link

Not seeing it... :-( Hopefully MaresNest can find it.

Grunge album coming soon?

I did eventually track down Send in The Subs in 192kbps, still hoping for a copy of it, I also grabbed a great VPRO session from that same person.

verse melody was knicked for "leo ryan"? and maybe another track?

trying to figure out how involved KH is with Lodge 49... seems kinda deep but maybe some contractual shit is keeping him incognito.

noooooooooooo...

Yerac, Monday, 28 October 2019 20:54 (two weeks ago) link

the only time I saw them live was in '99? when Delta 72, Olivia Tremor Control and Elf Power were also on the bill (macrock).

Yerac, Monday, 28 October 2019 20:57 (two weeks ago) link

That was a good era... maybe the peak.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Monday, 28 October 2019 21:03 (two weeks ago) link

I dunno, that recently unbraided hair seems peak.

Yerac, Monday, 28 October 2019 21:05 (two weeks ago) link

I appreciate his two sizes of tamis (tamises?) on the wall.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Friday, 1 November 2019 14:44 (two weeks ago) link

Hey Albert looks like

Hark, The Open Energy Channel Is Icy Water, Water Everywhere (B-side)

wasn't in the link

Evan, Friday, 1 November 2019 17:23 (two weeks ago) link

Damn... I'll see if I can rescrape it.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Friday, 1 November 2019 17:30 (two weeks ago) link

That track and the others from the Services For The Soon To Be Departed EP are so damn great.

Maresn3st, Friday, 1 November 2019 17:53 (two weeks ago) link

Yeah, I verified run-times it's the same track as the lead track on Services. Which I have... somewhere lol

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Friday, 1 November 2019 18:47 (two weeks ago) link

iirc they just bunged the whole EP, or most of it, on the CD Single for Nanny (in the UK at least)

Maresn3st, Friday, 1 November 2019 18:58 (two weeks ago) link

Well, I was wrong, it was just the first three tracks

Maresn3st, Friday, 1 November 2019 18:59 (two weeks ago) link

Really want the mystery tracks in this performance identified (don't have the time to comb through again at the moment to identify any timestamps):

Overlit Canyon - Live 2016-07-03

It's funny to hear him sing the songs of this era with that weird british/stoner surfer accent he sort of fell into since then.

Radiotricity 2016: "Oiyce Cahps Male-ting!"

Evan, Friday, 1 November 2019 19:28 (two weeks ago) link

Thanks again for the uploads, these early tracks are making me really nostaglic for Eccsame era stuff: "The Turtle Which..." etc.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Friday, 8 November 2019 00:50 (one week ago) link

Man, Eccsame is such an amazing record, it's just so low key that it's almost designed to be passed over, but if you spend a bit of time with it, it'll bury itself deep into you.

Maresn3st, Friday, 8 November 2019 08:32 (one week ago) link

Maybe I've been losing my shit over no one, for some time.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Sunday, 10 November 2019 06:44 (one week ago) link

It's weird how markedly different those first...idk five? albums are, like five different bands.

Maresn3st, Sunday, 10 November 2019 11:33 (one week ago) link

YES!

Maresnest can you please re-up the VPRO link? Looks like I forgot to click...

Also wondering if Albert was ever able to track down the missing file for Hark, The Open Energy Channel Is Icy Water, Water Everywhere (B-side)?

Evan, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 15:53 (five days ago) link

It is not a rarity per se, it's just the first track of Services For The Soon To Be Departed tacked on as a b-side to an import single.

That said, I do "own" it. Where it is, or my impending access to such is a big question.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Tuesday, 12 November 2019 16:35 (five days ago) link

No worries Evan, do you have the 'Services...' EP? I can include that also.

Maresn3st, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 16:39 (five days ago) link

It is amazing actually, every bit as great as BCMYLB

Maresn3st, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 16:40 (five days ago) link

When I say "the first track" it's like the first 3 tracks of the EP which are seamless. It's a little more free/frenetic than BCMYLB imho.
