Alright, time for some discussion on what yr all listening too. My iTunes inventory is getting a little stale so I'm up for some inspiration.

Currently loving The Drones' album "Havilah".. incredible songwriting and some of the best recorded guitars and drum I've heard in a long time. I'm a little late to the party with this album but it's on high rotation at the moment and will probably stay there a while. I've seen these guys live once (Fowlers, Adelaide) and fortunately they're incredible on stage too. Can't wait to see them again.

Zenagain...... You've crossed the line....... a bit like my "your brother wanted to borrow the car this morning" joke...... There are no winners in this......

As far as "beyonce" goes, TGF, horrid...... But at least she's good on the eye....

Two albums got a good thrashing today - Helmet's "Betty" and Girls Against Boys' "House of GVSB".


House of GVSB is a great album. Great band!

i was fully into helmet, but is there an album you could recommend post 'Betty". I had 'Aftertaste"and it was a bitter one. Betty is my favourite album of theirs though, songs go well in mixes with; Mark of cain, Butthole surfers (worm saloon) , Big Black, Rollerball, any music with Joel Silbersher in it.....Hoss etc...an oldish obscure band on the rise above label 'Sally' have some good rollers.......Slug Guts when its flat and cold

No way, get fucked...really? Shame, there's a time and place (1987 in a big beer hall) for big dumb rock and The Angels played it best.

Just remembered the kid in 9th grade who got an Angels tattoo. He was the first person I ever knew who got ink. It looked fucken unreal and we were well impressed. So impressed we overlooked the fact it was spelt 'The Angles.'

Just found out Buzz Osborne is playing at the local hall in my town. It seems to attract a wide range of artists, last month Brian Cadd and Glen Shorrock played there, now month King Buzzo. Wonder if he'll play any Melvins songs?

The Hard Ons with Keish back on the bongos! Oh yeah... Saw them a few times after he left when Blackie took over vocals. Just weren't the same, too raw, too tough, too blokey.

DA had me hooked since I first saw a clip on late night rage, not just the tunes but the social commentary and boundary pushing, but the promotion of zef culture...and those fuckin crazy black contacts.
