It’s All Rock & Roll to Me – Part 2

rock n roll

 

I mentioned yesterday that I have days at work when I barely do more than turn on my computer, but then there are those days when I’m in front of it for 8 to 10 hours. BMFBV1D1 & BMFBV1D2 are my soundtracks for days like that.

There is a little of something here for just about every musical taste so Enjoy!

In Heavy Rotation

Talk about falling into a rut! For the last month, whether because of laziness, or maybe I thought that they’d provide the answers to the secrets of the Universe, these three albums, Dawnrazor, The Essential Radio Birdman and Crickets And Fireflies were my constant musical companions on my daily walk. 

No matter how you like your music, the straight with chaser punk and rock n’ roll of Radio Birdman, the throat shredding Goth of Fields of the Nephilim or the psychedelic noodling of Kinski, Paik and Surface Of Eceyon this post likely has something to suit your musical tastes.

Rock Steady!

The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions

I’m sure that you’ve all heard that expression at some time in your life and at the beginning of this year I had every intention of posting more in 2014 then I had in 2013…and yet here it is February 22 and my first post of the year is a re-run.

You can thank Rob for that because he wrote and asked me to refresh the links for The Adverts The Wonders Don’t Care.

Well as long as I was doing that I also refreshed the links for Die Toten Hosen’s Learning English – Lesson 1 and Mass. Ave.: The Boston Scene (1975-83) which are also part of my original 2008 post.

And thank Rob for finally getting me off my butt.

A Holiday Grab Bag

Happy Holidays everyone! Hope everyone has had a Merry Christmas.

In keeping with the holidays, and because many of us are traveling to be with family and friends I felt that the Danish group Trains and Boats and Planes might be an appropriate place to start.

Taking their name from a Burt Bacharach/Hal Davis penned song this Danish groups’ one American record, 1994’s Minimal Star, was recorded and produced by Shimmy Discs legendary Kramer.

By the mid 1990’s the dominant sound of alternative music was grunge and this record (and many others like it) received limited, if any sort of airplay on commercial “alternative” radio.

The Scene is Now was a loose collection of downtown New York City musicians. Only former Mofungo members Chris Nelson and Philip Dray were permanent members of the group. Over the years other members of the group included sax player Elliott Sharp, Pere Ubu bassist Tony Maimone and ex-“dB Will Rigby.

Sounding like a modern day jug band, The Scene is Now was generally unknown until Yo La Tengo covered Yellow Sarong from 1985’s album Burn All Your Records.

Because their recorded output was limited to 1985’s Burn All Your Records, 1986’s Total Jive, 1988’s Tonight We Ride and 1990’s cassette-only Shotgun Wedding 1995’s The Oily Years (1983-1993) provides a good overview of their work.
