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.

patrick, sarah sands is a blast from the past, reckon last time i was there was L7 in early 90's some time, another good venue that's apartments and (possibly) a gastro pub now

Would have loved to have been at that show. Fuck the 90's were good.

This clip makes me nostalgic for that time.

- rockin song
- casual dress, no one dressing to be cool or wearing band shirts. (At least, can't see either of those things in the clip).
- guitarist and bass player are tuning while song starts, the guitarist even singing while still tuning.
- drummer busts a hole in his snare.
- no fuckin phones
- look how much fun their all having... woooot!!
- it finishes with Louise yelling "rock n roll, Glastonbuurrrryyyy". Classic :)

Of all the great artists who died young I think this was the greatest loss. He died at the peak of his powers. What a song! What a performance. (Video? Not so great)

Heartening to see some fellow Albini fans. Here's a little Aussie (erm, and Scottish) connection, so to speak:

Albini was/is a big fan of AC/DC. In production, Vanda & Young. In performance, Malcolm Young.

Haventr heard that cover before. Very goood. I’ve seen shellac a few times over the years. Last time was the metro in Sydney I think last time they were here. I seem to remember albini had several coloured picks strapped to his mic stand. Mid way through set albini stops the gig for a Q&A session. Several nerd high brow questions followed. Then my saffa mate who I took to the gig with me of his guts yells out like the loveable smart arse he is “which is your favourite coloured pick and why”.
Without pause albini yells back “fuck up”.
I was so embarrassed.

Never got to see them Hiccups, always wrong place, wrong time for me.
Still wanting a Travis Bean (or anything with an aluminium neck)
Never heard a band that uses them that i don't like.
Time for some Melvins and Jesus Lizard!

Some interesting stuff of late. King Stingray! And is that 'Hotline to Jesus' your own, BB?

And now some Pisco*, new and old.

Sing it, sisters.

*pisco = punk disco (though that Blondie track doesn't really fit the bill...ah well, any excuse)

from my soundtrack of the 90s and 00s, one of the best ausi bands ever:

I never use to like them, all my mates would flog them and i was more into the more obscure Indie stuff opposed to that whole drop D thing, but as time has gone ive really come to like a lot of their stuff, i saw them live a few times too, must say even when i wasn't a fan i thought they were great live.

One of my friends was dating the guitarist for a while so got on the piss one night with him at the Edge at Broadbeach, he kind of seemed a bit up himself though, i didn't like them at that stage so i had no interest in being a fan boy he was just another guy to me, but he wasn't overly friendly seeing it was only him and me that were the bros there, no loss though the girls were talkative.

Listened to a podcast interview with the lead singer the other month, I was surprised that he was brought up in a super religious family even use to be in a Christian band with his family members before Grinspoon.

Hey Blackers, that Neutral Milk Hotel album is fantastic. I'm not sure where Jeff Mangum pulled all that from, I'm led to believe it was inspired by Anne Frank.

@Abmay, it’s a ripper isn’t it? That tune particularly has a lot going on in it.. Have read a bit about him, not sure even he knows where it came from. The album seems to have been his Harper Lee moment..

I reckon I would struggle to find a better album in the 1990s. I've never given 'On Avery Island' a good listen but have seen it rated really highly by some. One day I'll give it some attention. So much music, so little time.

Solid Gold Slab of "_ _ _ _ _ _ "
Martinis ~ Hung Over > ( Album : Track 1 from Late Late Party )
Single Recorded 1965 Released 1967 by []BAR[] Records (Braddock Axton Rousell) Memphis
Band : Johnny Keys & Packy Axton (The Packers / The Pac - Keys)
Background...
JK: " When Packy got enraged, in a fit he'd yell ..."_ _ _ _ _ _"
During this Instrumental & when it came to the break, he'd yell " _ _ _ _ _ _"
Everyone except Estelle (Axton), laughed about it afterward, saying it sounded like he was throwing up!
Hence the title ..."Hung Over"
Estelle hated the yell, thinking it was uncouth and argued incessantly to leave it off the record...
This was one battle she lost...

swellnet crew salutes {Rare Funk On 45}...That sure is some solid gold Groovin'!
