    Well, you know I'm listening to several of the new tracks on the radio... Also in rotation are e.s.l. - Prove me wrong, and I've cycled M. Ward's old Transistor Radio album back up to the top of the playlist.

    brought into work today for loading onto the sound system:

    Naked City, Grand Guignol
    Peter Hammill, A Black Box

    (These two contain tracks I want to use in my next play - "Blood Is Thin" from the Naked City, "Fogwalking" from the Hammill)

    Gary Numan, Berserker (extended version)

    (His cold, large, blue-and-white mid-80s sound - the extended version of "This Is New Love" is the Numan track I pick over all others.)

    GY!BE's Efrim et al's Silver Mt. Zion - Horses in the Sky album. The final section of the track 'God Bless Our Dead Marines' is so fucking intense - group singing in the round. makes me wanna cry.

    When the World is Sick, can no-one be well? But I dreamt we were all beautiful and strong...

    there is some Doktor Sleepless sentiment in this i think - i can imagine those words being uttered in another preach...

    I've mostly been playing a mix of David Lee Roth-era Van Halen tracks that I made last week, at least while I'm at work. For some reason it cheers me up. I guess maybe because Roth is so silly that it's impossible to be bummed out while I'm listening to him howl like a maniac.

    Also in the rotation:

    BECK - One Foot In the Grave
    PARAMORE - Riot!
    THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM - Senor and the Queen; The 59 Sound
    SIGUR ROS - Agaetis Byrjun
    JOY DIVISION - Unknown Pleasures; Closer
    MOHINDER - Discography
    SWING KIDS - Discography

    Sweeney Todd - Todd Cariou/Angela lansbury cast.

    Goddammit I love Sondheim when he's weird - Sweeney, into the woods, and assassins all rank in my top 10 stage musicals.

    I just got a bunch of new metal i'm interested in trying out - it's really weird when you're trying to search through it how segmented metal has gotten - the difference between doom metal and power metal, for instance is rather extreme. Pity I actually like metal where people carry a fucking tune . . .

    Bobby Whitlock- self-titled
    Dennis Wilson- Pacific Ocean Blue (This one was surprisingly good)

    I've been listening to anything I can find from Rodrigo y Gabriela.

    Just found out about them last Thursday. Fantastic. Acoustic guitar duo that are amazing. I'm usually more in to edgy, weirdo stuff, but they're work is amazing.

    Almost non-stop:

    The Dodos - Visiter
    Fleet Foxes
  3.  (2883.11)
    MOHINDER - Discography

    fuck yeah.

    this is what i can remember listening to this weekend/today:
    YOU"VE GOT THE FUCKING POWER- digital hardcore compilation
    THE BROADWAYS- broken star (beards+beer+chicago gruff poppunk)
    THE FALL- the real new fall record (so far, this is the one i like most from them)
    THE SWARM-parasitic skies (canadian metallic brutality)
    BECK-the information (chillllll out. except for "nausea", which rocks in a funky kinda way)
    PANIC AT THE DISCO-pretty.odd. (my wake up pop music of this week)
    SEX/VID- tania and nests eps --i also saw this band last night and they completely fucking killed. they deserve the hype, easily- if you like punk you WILL go see them when they come to your town (they are on tour, heading east as we speak) and you WILL hurt yourself when they play. theres nothing you can do, the fist of evil compels you with mystical bullying.

    I've been listening to No Agenda. A podcast from Adam Curry of MTV Fame and John C. Dvorak that talk about anything from conspiracy theories to good wine.

    I'm a religious listener to this weekly show.

    I've been making a special effort to listen to bands who've played at our gigs, or who come from the same town (even if they're split up now).

    So here's a muxtape of what made it into my weekly top artists on

    Somebody driving by my place is playing Bowie's "Starman".

    Possibly the first time in 8 years that somebody drove by playing good music.
  4.  (2883.16)
    Michael Maksymenko - BusinessCide
    Tom Waits - Bone Machine
  5.  (2883.17)
    The new Gaslight Anthem, some Hold Steady and lots of Motown.

    I've also been listening to my little brother's iPod a lot as the big TV is in his room and we watch lots of DVDs and play PS3 in there. It's an odd mixture of 80s cheese, Motown, classic rock, rap, punk and reggae. I pretty much know every song on it by now so it's great fun to sing-along to as it goes from Biz Markie to Jimmy Cliff to Madonna to Thin Lizzy.

    White Rose Movement has a very catchy song entitled Cruella. Granted the band has all the bad haircuts of the emo age but I figure that goes with the territory.

    I also picked up a CD at this movie prop shop that seemed more like a Japanese prop shop and the CD and band seem to be entitled Tone. Its very good and relaxing. I think I've heard a track or two in an anime before but I have no clue which.

    Cock Sparrer's "Take 'em All" seems to have found its way to my player several times this week too. Along with Social Distortion's "Winners and Losers" and The Pogue's "Fairytale of New York".

    MARS VOLTA - The Bedlam In Goliath (Yes, I'm that guy.)
    RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS - By The Way (See?)

    It's been a couple of months since I have been on a Chili Peppers/Volta kick. I suspect I will be listening to a lot of both of their albums this week. Sorry. I promise my tastes are diverse!
