Same bands I listened to when I was a kid I still do today. Stream of conciousness youtubing. I blame 420.


The Cure
I went on a long hiatus from them just getting back into their early stuff. 

The Slits


Talking Heads

The B-52's



Eurythmics In The Garden
Better than their breakout hit album. 

When I was a kid I was into anything different and at the time industrial was different. I gravitated to Wax Trax artists. When grundge came about I was really disappointed as it just wasn't interesting enough just a bunch of sad guys with guitars. 


Front 242 - Headhunter

I got to see Thrill Kill Cult on the Kooler Than Jesus tour. I made friends with the bomb gang girls and they were super sweet and nice to an obviously young kid way too early for the show.

Oboreta Ebi No Kenshi Houkokusyo or Autopsy Report Of A Drowned Shrimp - Osaka Japan

Music For Maniacs brings us this oddity from Japan called Oboreta Ebi No Kenshi Houkokusyo or  Autopsy Report Of A Drowned Shrimp. I've always been into things different not sure why. This fits in with what I've been listening to this week SnakeFinger, Renaldo And The Loaf, Residents, STUMP, and Mike Dillon Band.
 They dress up like giant prawns to perform avant garde funk jazz crazedness. These guys are nuck'n futs. If they ever play SXSW I will be there.
 They must have some killer shrooms in Osaka.
 These two shows are interesting.
It makes me happy to know there are bands out there doing what they want and having a blast. I guess they give new meaning to the term shrimping.

What ever happened to Doo Rag ? Bob Log III?

There was a band in the 90's my friends and I used to go see called Doo Rag. They were awesome. They would bang on piece's of tin scrape washboards make crazy sounds and generally freak the hell out. They were noisy and cacaphonic. I miss them. Well I was looking them up today and found this kick ass piece by Bob Log III. This is what he they evolved into. Sometimes I get tired of the smooth clean sounds and want to hear some manic heavy grit music. I know this will annoy some but I dig it. The albums are much cleaner sounding than the live cuts and very interesting.

My main question is that if this is Bob Log III what has happened to the Bob Log's that preceded him?

Avante Garde Music Project

Sometimes I just get bored with music and need something different to readjust the ear brain thing. When this happens I grab some Kagel or the sounds of the Italian futurist. A good friend sent me a link to the Avant Garde project a few years ago but I only recently checked it out. If you need something different or have an appreciation of avante garde classical music check it out.

Blurb from the site.
The Avant Garde Project is a series of recordings of 20th-century classical, experimental, and electroacoustic music digitized from LPs whose music has in most cases never been released on CD, and so is effectively inaccessible to the vast majority of music listeners today.

The history of avante garde music.

UK Soundway Records Releases Lost African Music


My new favorite label for buying vinyl is Soundway Records. They are releasing very important music from Africa. The music is amazing and rivals anything else going on in the 70's. If you like highlife, afrobeat, funk, disco, Nigerian blues or African Jazz you have to check out this label. This music is amazing.

I never tire of this music. It is just one groove after another. This weekend I had a grillout party where I was spinning these Soundway Records. The music infectious everyone was asking about this music and dancing around. You just can't keep still while this music is on.

You can listen to a few samples here
