Whoa. Arthur Russell.
This is pretty cool, especially for R.E.M. fans. Wuxtry Records in Athens, GA (where employee Peter Buck met customer Michael Stipe in 1980) is releasing some of its previously uncirculated concert footage to YouTube. This is a 13-song set from 1981 (less than a year since the band played its first show and over a year before they released their debut Chronic Town EP), shot in Atlanta opening for Joe "King" Carrasco. Early versions of some old favorites show up, as well as a couple covers and some other songs that never made it to record.
Yeah man yr the best! Hah but seriously, I think you've showed me more music than anyone/anything else so I'm forever grateful for that!
Solid new Ducktails (Matt Mondanile of Real Estate) track featuring Ford & Lopatin and others.
I was flipping through the channels and found this deal called axs.tv. They're screening a concert from Sonic Youth on the Murray Street tour. They were such an awesome live band around this time, and it's always great to watch Jim O'Rourke look super dumpy.
So I listened to two side project bands today that I hadn't before.
Mondo Generator was fantastic. Definitely gonna hit up that Satellite show.
Tomahawk was not to my liking at all. With the exception of some of Disco Volante I haven't really ever been too keen on anything Mike Patton-related before though, so this came as no surprise.
I got through the first few songs of their debut before turning it off. And I didn't say it was a Mike Patton project, I said it was Patton-related, which it is.
That's the one that I have had recommended to me time and time again, but have yet to give a try.
Yeah, I've never listened to Fantomas actually. Grazie.
Sorry for the long post, but I am bored
My favorite thing to suggest to anyone that hates Patton, I love when these two collaborate
Probably my personal favorite trip-hop record that isn't Portishead
His album with Merzbow
Fantomas is a boatload of fun
This is is project covering 60s Italian pop songs that some people like
He also has a ton of noisy stuff with John Zorn and Trevor Dunn, after awhile it starts to sound alike. I can suggest some though if you'd like.
Oh wow. Thanks for that! Collab with Merzbow?
Paul McCartney replacing Kurt Cobain in Nirvana for one song.
Rogers Waters was just on J Fallon. He said they will do about 5 songs. One with Eddie Vedder. Should be a great show. Please give ........cr****

YES! Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes.
My brother and I both distinctly remember staying up late one night in the mid 90s watching music videos on MTV. We saw something with a guy wearing an astroturf suit singing about how the grass only grows where the grassman goes. We both thought it was the funniest shit ever and it took me around a decade to finally find the video again. He's the original drummer for Pavement.
Cant wait for this album!
