That's great news and thank you! I will look into the new album.

Dead Skeletons - Live In Berlin

Inspired by Spzretent's post on this earlier (where did that go or did I imagine it? :shock: ) just given this a spin. It really is a great record and not sure why I (or anyone else) mentioned it before. I think, for me anyway, it got buried in a load of other new releases which I've bought in the last few months. Anyway, its a great live album and makes me really want to see them. I'm hoping (probably unrealistically) that they're going to get added to this year's Liverpool Psych Fest. They do seem to be rather (heavily) tied in with Fuzz Club Records so they may make an appearance at one of their many live events. Either way would just love to catch these guys live. 8)

It was there. I was drunk. It sounded eerily similar to someone else who posts here so I deleted it.
It is a great record. I love Dead Skeletons.
Addendum: I finally got a d/l code and have been listening to this in the car non stop. I also listened to a few boots and this LP blows them away. There should be somethong for everyone with this band from the motorik grooves to the full on psychedelic experience. Aggressive yet melodic. Glad I have nearly all their vinyl expensive though it may be.

Only chance I get at the moment to listen to music is when i'm doing the washing up so here's a couple that have provided the 'Suds Soundtrack' in recent days:

Honey - Love Is Hard. Three piece that operate at the punk end of the psych spectrum. Apparently featuring an ex Psychic Ills member but I haven't found anything online to verify that. Make a decent racket, like a more varied Destruction Unit.

Haikai No Ku - Temporary Infinity. Featuring Blown Out's main man Mike Vest and this doesn't sound too dissimilar to his chief band. Extended instrumental jams with plenty of noise and drone. I'd almost say it's like a heavier, harsher Carlton Melton 8)
I'm losing my edge, but I was there...

preposterous!

check out the description beneath the video in question:

"Small Hours by John Martyn from a gig in Germany 1978. Have digitally improved sound & video of this legendary Scottish Singer Songwriter. Met him in Hamburg, was backstage at Markthalle with him and Danny and Angeline sharing a glass of wine (lovely Irish Lass) and JM & myself shared a ---- on the toilet of Inzbett B4 his gig in the Fabriek (he kicked shit out of his Echoplex in front of the audiance cause it didnt work - that fixed it and he went on to play small hours). He was also fond of going to the Zwiebel for a pint after gigs. A place hamish Imlach also enjoyed. The good old days. :o)"

A couple of songs from the new Psychic Ills album "Inner Journey Out". Hope Sandoval guesting on the track "I Don't Mind ". If these are anything to go by , this should be a brilliant album.

Oasis ! FFs whats wrong with me? i cannot stand them.

for some reason have found myself drawn to Definitely Maybe ( which I don't think I've listened to for about 20 years ) and some live shows from '94. a fair amount of novelty in there but have been enjoying a handful of tracks. the album *sounds* amazing actually. great job from Owen Morris.

I'm listening to what I consider the greatest cover of all time, Isaac Hayes' unsurpassable rendition of By The Time I Get To Phoenix:



My good lady is unwell in bed, but our wonderfully gorgeous new kitty cat is keeping me company. She's a rescued stray, but after only a couple of days in her new home she's following us around from room to room, sleeping on our laps and purring at every stroke and cuddle :D

Lots of Stephen Stills, particularly the Manassas stuff.

But I also played a few bits of that Psychic Ills album and enjoyed that too.

I heard you Scots were enjoying prolonged weather - we've had 2 splendid days in Yorkshire but I think it's going to change...

Gang of Four- Return the Gift

strange one, this. it acts as a kind of a greatest hits. but what actually happened is they went into the studio to rerecord new versions. it serves two purposes- as a way to sell the songs without giving their old record company royalties- and as a way to rectify what they saw as poor production on the early stuff.
it does rock, that's for sure. infact it almost rocks too much- the drums sound huge and the guitars are pin sharp. kinda loses some of that lofi postpunk flavour.
what a great band though. the way everything interlocks and plays off each other. the guitar playing is quite minimalist but shit hot. Marxism you can dance too :)
I just ordered Entertainment! to get the original versions.

Apart from a cursory listen to The Darkside fifteen years ago, I've never really listened to Bassman's post-Sp3 work. Spinning this now courtesy of Youtube, and it's proving a very pleasant listen thus far :D

that sounds right up my street- will have to check them out!

today I've been listening to Steve Gunn- Eyes on The Lines. it's superb, his best album yet I reckon. he can no longer be described as folk- everything is plugged in and full of rippling guitar lines. this would be perfect music for driving down a dusty American road.

this live performance of the opening track is brilliant:

I know a few of these bands have close ties but don't know if they share members. Really impressed with the lazy stoner psych style from Chile... Follakzoid, Psychedelic Schafferson Jetplane and La Hell Gang are all excellent too!

Been checking out the La Hell Gang album Thru Me Again, that is quality, looking forward to seeing them later this month, that Chicos De Nazca album is really good as well those 2 share at least one member, probably two, cool sounds though.

New TFC album...

I've struggled with some of TFC's more recent work, although Shadows was definitely a grower and i love that now. I can honestly say i rarely listen to any of the albums though very often nowadays (even though i still love it when they drop into a random playlist). So i'm trying to rediscover them again through the new album. Upon first hearing "I'm In Love" i just didn't like it. Absolutely nothing grabbed me and it it seemed to just lack direction (no pun intended!) All i could think of was "these guys can do so much better!". So here we go...

Album sounds well produced and the songs sound good but i'm just not getting drawn in by some of it. Still can't get into "I'm In Love" and there are a couple of other songs which don't have that instant WOW factor. Some really great guitar work on it, especially from Raymond but, and it pains me to say it, Norman's songs sound the weakest of the songwriting trio this time round. Nice use of organs and synths in all the right places (kudos to Dave McGowan).

I think Raymond has really stepped up on this one. His songs are inventive, intruiging and really rather gorgeous. In fact this is easily Raymond's best set of songs on a recent album. And there is a lot of great work by Dave on these too!

Gerry's song are as strong as ever and are easy to spot as soon as they start. All sunshine and beauty. Business as usual for him. Can't help but melt with the harmonies on his tracks too.

Hmmm... Norman. I'm struggling here. "I'm In Love" is upbeat and all jingly-jangly, but it just doesn't go anywhere or have that killer hook to grab me. When i first heard it, it just sounded bland and i'm not sure it was ideal as the album opener. The opener and "The Darkest Part Of The Night" are two of Norman's weakest and are probably the weakest tracks on the entire album. "Darkest Part..." sounds rather "same-y" with, again, a lack of hook to pull me in. The closer, "Connected To Life" is much better and is nicely placed as the closer.

So there you go... my tuppence worth. Curious to what others honestly think. I'm trying to be honest, but really open minded here too as falling out of love with a band who's music has been such a big part of your life is not something i really want to have to go through!

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Skeleton Tree

Sounds more like a Cave/Ellis album .A very dark album.
