And she's got a sense of humor.
A German band from MÃ¼hlheim at the Ruhr (a river) in North Rhine-Westphalia.
They call it doomjazz.
MÃ¼hlheim is a wasteland, but they have this great band, the independent concert hall AZ MÃ¼hlheim (AZ stands for Autonomes Zentrum, autonomic centre) and the hilarious Helge Schneider.
Ha! That's great.
Something a bit different tonight. Tommy Emmanuel with Frank Vignola and Vinny Ranniolo:
The Newlydeads - Self titled.
One of the best bands off the sunset strip to emerge in the mid-to-late 90's! They should have been bigger! Screw Nine Iinch Nails!
Here's a cool track from the album called Submission
Tim Buckley-Move With Me
Julie Driscoll and the Trinity-Tramp
One of the coolest things about my girlfriend is she digs Curtis Mayfield. Doesn't like Bukowski, though. Still working on that. The woman is hard clay and I have weak hands. Heh.
I guess we old mops can't renew ourselves much. But, always wide open to cheap thrills.
Here is Dorothy Moore-MISTY BLUE
Blind Melon - Self Titled
Insane, to think lead singer Shannon Hoon died 15 years ago. I attended the last Blind Melon Los Angeles show on October 11, 1995. He died 10 days later on October 21st. One of the coolest guys you could ever have met.
Very old band but new release! (september 27.)
Swans - My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky
Track 7 Eden prison
They were a massive influence for some of my favorite bands; their former drummer Ted Parsons even played in Godflesh and is now in Jesu. But it isn't him on this recording? Anyway, this is a dark spiritual mass and I will have to get the album.
I've been longing for something like that since the decline of goth in the late 80s.

Ok, one more:
Had to double (actually triple) read this just to make sure I was reading it right. Thanks for the post, Ponder. Sounds like a buy.
Coming out next week: Deerhunter - Halcyon Digest
No Age - Everything in Between
another contender for my year end list.
That's funny, I heard a review of that on the local NPR station on the way to work. What are the odds? Spooky, I tells ya, spooky.
was it a good or bad review?
I have read about 50 reviews on No Age's new album, all good, not that it means anything. But they certainly seem to be critics favorites right now. I've seen them live a few times. Hooch, you liked the new album that much? It's good, but not near my top ten list this year... They opened for Pavement and Sonic Youth at the hollywood bowl tonight.
Around the 2:30 mark she begins to grind the violin in to dust - onward to Kashmir. Some sexy fine energy being discharged here.
Eh, yeah... grind!
Thank you Stavrogin, I like Lucia Micarelli and this one too.
Memphis Slim - Blues Is Troubles
As my good friend Willie Dixon says, "Some people think they got religion. They got the blues."
If you can imagine a face to face with an 18 wheeler, that is how the show went.
I had never heard them before, I followed Ponder's advice. It was the best live show I've attended in a long time.
a solid 2 hour metal meditation, it this makes any sense.
That's one helluva set, especially with the hanging kick drum.
I just put this poster up in the living room for the month, ya know, with Halloween and all.
So while I decorate I've got Dressed to Kill on, LOUD!
I need to do a better job of following music news. Knew nothing of the reunite - release of new material until Ponder's previous post. Checked tour dates and they are passing through the area in the next day or two but can't break away to see 'em. Hopefully the album sells well and more shows will be added.
I recently exchanged a couple of e-mails with Gira when I bought "The Consumer" from him. He assured me that there will be plenty of European dates next year; I can't make it to any of this year's dates either...
And the album seems to sell well; here's the current announcement on the Young God Records site: "Due to overwhelming demand, resulting in a large backlog of orders, all orders from this website are temporarily disabled. Once weâ€™ve caught up with back orders, we will send out a newsletter letting you know when orders are again available. Thanks! YGR"
That's good news, bogdan. Thanks for the info. Hope to catch them live at a later date.
I would definitely see Swans again.
