    Listening to the leak of the new Marilyn Manson album, The High End Of Low. I really wanted to like this, but I don't think I do. I hope somebody finds a way to do an instrumental version of this, because Twiggy and Chris Vrenna did their job, but Manson's lyrcics and downright laughable on most songs. Four Rusted Horses is probably the best song. I'm glad I didn't pay for it, that's for sure.

    it was Sun Ra's birthday yesterday...

    and i saw King Khan & The Shrines last night. it was so wild. those humans are insane, and the drummer looked amazingly like Warren Ellis.

    Two new CDs from my bi-weekly Sunday visit to Rough Trade East (nothing beats chilled out browsing music in a good music shop):

    — Toddla T: Skanky Skanky
    — Mordant Music: Picking O'er The Bones

    Haven't listened to them yet though…

    @nigredo-- I just discovered BSC & am quite enamored of 'Challenger'. Can you recommend the next logical album in their discography, or should I just throw wild dollars and procure whichever album looks prettiest?

    Metallica- Load
    The Faint- Wet From Birth
    Polkadot Cadaver- Purgatory Dance Party
    some of Pop Will Eat Itself- Wise Up Suckers
    just started on Rammstein- Sehnsucht, because the boyfriend dragged out his VHS copy of The Family Values Tour '98 last night.

    Ambient 4 - Isolationism comp.
    Various Iannis Xenakis recordings
    Autechre - Chiastic Slide

    That Isolationsm VA is excellent.

    Don't expect past albums to sound like Challenger. His stuff sounded closer to Hototogisu, Vibracathedral Orchestra etc. Try Blood Lightning, see what you think.

    Big Chief - Mack Avenue Skullgame
    Giant Brain - Thorn of Thrones
