    The reissues of the first two Loop albums, Fade Out and Heaven's End. The missing link between sixties psyche and shoegaze/protostoner (J&MC/early Monster Magnet)... horrible buzzy eighties tranny amp tones, but that whole droning fuzz riffs with tone-bend pentatonic meanderings is pretty redemptive anyway. Every band you ever loved sounded a bit like this*.

    * Provided you like music that doesn't suck, obviously. ;)

    @ scarecrow

    I was just today wondering when they were coming your way. Glad to hear they had a good night there as well.

    @ taphead, yeah they played Friday in Dublin and Saturday in Cork. I would have preferred to be at the one in Dublin as a bunch of my friends were heading too, but I was back in the home county for other reasons so I went on my own to the Cork show. It was fantastic, the only disappointment being that they only had cds to sell and no shirts :s. I did manage to nab off the wall, one of the only two posters that had been printed up to advertise the show. And oddly enough I ended up not being there on my own, I ran into a friend of mine from a long time ago who I hadn't seen in maybe 6 years or so.

    Did they recently play FInland aswell?

    this morning in the car - Anthrax - Vol. 8: the threat is real

    had a craving for buzzy, poundy late 90's metal with alternative detours. There's a Radiohead cover in that album, but I can't really compare since I don't really listen to them. probly should tho...there I go again with the hipster guilt.

    @ scarecrow

    They we're all out of shirts a few ago here as well, otherwise I'd have nabbed one of those hoodies real fast. They didn't have any copies of Abandoned Language either, but I did manage to get Absence. It also may have been the heaviest and loudest gig I've been to this year. Boris might have come close.

    Not to get all thread drifty:

    Linton Kwesi Johnson - Forces of Victory

    @ taphead

    Some of the groups at Maschinenfest might very well have given them a run for their money, Mimetic, Sonar and Winterkalte in particular. But Dalek were indeed pretty damn loud.

    Puscifer - Queen B
  9.  (4337.16)
    Guns´n´Roses - Chinese Democracy.

    Tipper - (dunno what album but it was real nice)

    "Sonic Attack" is a classic, like a drugged-out Dr Who excerpt, and who can beat "Orgone Accumulator"?
