How about reggae recommendations?


Reggae: you need to get the old Jamaican stuff, old-fashioned ska and reggae. Try to get the Best of Studio One, or similar compilations (from Studio One, or other labels like the Trojan Box Sets for example).

Some good individuals tracks:
The Skatalites, "Guns of Navarone"
Prince Buster, "Al Capone" and "One Step Beyond"
Junior Murvin, "Police and Thieves"

Lately, besides just listening to the new Wussy cd to death, I have been listening to a lot of 30s, 40s and 50s music. I am putting together a playlist for my wife's parents 50th wedding anniversary.

Anything in particular you'd recommend I check out? 20s and 30s music is something I enjoy when I hear it (in movies) but don't know much of anything about it.

Them Crooked Vultures is a supergroup that is about to release an album it should be uber-good it has Josh Homme(singer and guitarist from Queens of the Stone Age, my 2nd favorite band), Dave Grohl (Drummer from Foo Fighters which I don't listen to but he was also in Nirvana which I like alot), and John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin bassist).

FAO ye Londonistas: Amanda Palmer is playing a wee, late-night gig at the World's End.
quote:
i know some rad people in camden (namely Julie & Mike) who manage a bar/club called The World’s End.

so i stopped by the other day and asked if i could invade their house for a late show after one of their scheduled shows.

their answer: FUCK YES! have a pint.

so here we go, yo:

i’ll be playing starting at 12/midnight late sunday the 13th, the night after the second union chapel show.

there won’t be any support.

i have no idea how long the show will go…probably until i get too plastered, and/or - more likely - too sleepy.

most likely it will be an all-requests fuckshow of love. i’ve been brushing up on lots of old songs and i know i won’t play half of them at the union chapel shows since we have a REALLY tight curfew there (10:30).

since the venue loves me i’m hoping everyone will have a kick-ass time….Julie let us have a lock-in bar party there after the electric ballroom show & it was awesome.

they have a fire!

since i know what people will ask….

yes, i will have/sign copies of the book at the show.

yes, neil will *probably* be there and sign too.


Tickets here and here. Sounds like a blast, and I need someone through whom to live vicariously.

SoaD aren't bad, but I liked Toxicity better - the latest two records have so much 80s trash throwback, not to mention the silliest lyrics this side of Interpol.

Grabbed a bunch of jazz lately. 8 Bold Souls is good stuff, maybe leaning towards NOLA sound, brassy, big sound, up beat. Chicago Underground Trio is good, think Weather Report on a smaller scale, avant trio/quartet stuff, with and edge of dissonance to them. Also picked up some Dizzy Gillespie which has a great big band old time sound.

I have been on a Beatles kick. They were my first musical love aside from classical (I played violin as a kid) but my old Revolver, Rubber Soul, and Abbey Road tapes have gone the way of all flesh but I now have all those on CD and on my iTunes as well as the Beatles 1 "best of" and The White Album. I'm really enjoying them.

On a more modern note, I'd like to get some more Fleet Foxes and the new Mika album.

been wanting those Beatles reissues too, but I wish the early records were available in the mono mixes.

I know a guy who's a big Beatles fan and collector. He probably knows where to find that stuff. Want me to ask him?

I've been listening to the Reverend Horton Heat. Helped tremendously in writing a song for Lester's new album. Wink

Hard to pick favorite tracks, they're almost all fantastic. After seeing them live, it's even harder--they were incredible performers and I'd pay just about anything to see them again.

I appreciate it, but I probably can't afford it anyway. I should have phrased that as "I wish the early records had been re-issued in cleaned-up remastered mono mixes and they gave me a big fat raise at work".
