    Yeah. Damn Nigredo and his excellent music taste. Bastard.... :)

    Glad you liking MSAASS. A lot of people up here are genuinely puzzled as to why he released it (a) for free ("Why don´t you want to make money on it?") and (b) with no publicity ("Why aren´t you telling everyone about how great you are?"). But world of mouth is doing it all for him...

    Finally bought Tarot Sport and holy fuck it is excellent. I refused to listen to anything off it until I bought the CD and the wait definitely paid off.

    I have become completely addicted to a Tom Waits album called "The Black Rider" and the song that shares its name. So come on in, it ain't no sin / Take off your skin and dance around in your bones...

    Also a song by Chris Garneau called Dirty Night Clowns, you'll find it here.

    @Taphead & Nigredo - Thanks for listening ;-) (I'd like to be able to say that!)

    I've gotta figure how to reach the vast and largely-imaginary radio audience that exists outside south-central Alaska. Whenever I do a show, I imagine everyone who has ever listened to the show to be listening then. That covers a lot of territory from Los Angeles to Alaska, and 1981 to today...(not to mention internationally scattered Whitechapel denizens). And I don't seem to be getting out of Alaska anytime soon. KEUL runs on a minuscule, all-volunteer budget that makes streaming difficult, and podcasting is a legal nightmare unless you license individual tracks or stick with creative commons material. The station has already had dealings with the FCC when it was busted as a pirate station several years back (and got an actual license due to community support).

    So anyone know where I can post shows for streaming? Any sites ideal for that? Cheaply? (Streaming still avoids the legal pratfalls of podcasting - if I understand the law correctly).

    Currently listening to:
    King Crimson - The Great Deceiver

    Whatever crust/hardcore albums the neighbors have been bringing over. I think we're listening to Witch Hunt right now.

    Also, my roommate just got an order in from No Idea Records, and we're waiting for the Ergs!/Measure [SA] split to arrive in the mail.

    I refer to It sez:

    Miracle Legion - Sounds so 80s, so good.
    Chuck Prophet - New album is good, clicked after two listens.
    The Flaming Lips - New album is AMAZING. More than enough to make me forget how lacklustre the last two were.
    El-P - All his instrumental albums are just amazing to write to.
    Themselves - Like someone turned hip-hop upside down and all the bits fell together in a very curious way.
    Charlotte Hatherley - She's so amazing. Swoon.
    Converge - New album is just the right combination of skull-crushing and disembowling for me.
    Luke Haines - The first CD is growing on me, but the second CD which feels like something of an afterthought, is a creepy, sneering little masterpiece.
    Richard Thompson - I found The Old Kit Bag, and turns out it's a really great album.
    Mark Mulcahy - re: Miracle Legion. He's fantastic.

    Recently discovered how great BLOOD & TIME are. Side project by three guys from Neurosis. Vocals by Scott Kelly with the music being just acoustic guitar(s) and ambience. Very atmospheric. Nice!

    Not this time, it seems, but maybe I'll get that when I can place my own order for the Armalite LP and the Andrew Jackson Jihad/Mischief Brew split.

    so, here is the sound of my whitechapel cherry being popped. hopefully it doesn't end up being my grape.

    just got word some people i used to jam with on occasion have a new set of sounds out for consumption by people with taste who like free things. i immediately thought of you all.

    they're called vesica piscis out of northern arizona and here is a link, if i can figure the link thing out (did i mention i'm a technological neanderthal?)
    they've got a sound that reminds me of the less abrasive parts of coil, throbbing gristle, skinny puppy and like that with some nice ambient stuff as well.

    if'n you like them, they stream daily and generally lurk in creative darkness at this place.

    and this is what i've been listening to tonight. i'll shut up now.

    Listened to shitloads of Krautrock yesterday, in preparation for the 8tracks mix and I'm sticking to some of it today...

    Walter Wegmüller - Tarot

    Conrad Schnitzler - Rot

    By the way, has any of you heard the Autechre SplitRmx 12" (WAP124), where they do a cover of Neu!'s Weissensee and Im Gluck together? Awesome stuff...

    I'm really loving Childballads right now. It's Stewart Lupton's new band, he used to sing in Jonathan Fire*Eater. I just love the way he uses narrative in his lyrics.

    And I refuse to apologize for it.

    i did a free music dump last night centred on early 90´s US Grunge, so it was loads of L7, MELVINS, HOLE, BABES IN TOYLAND & MUDHONEY this morning

    Meanwhile my part time editor has me reviewing this band. Its a pretty interesting premise. THE COMA CLUSTER
    The Coma Cluster is a concept developed by the Icelandic artists Hallvardur Ásgeirsson and Siffvilnius, together with others scattered over several countries and continents, they've sculpted a vision from sound where we see a glimpse of our world from another point of view.

    Impressive huh?
    and here is a video of their signature song.. So far im´pretty much liking it...
