    Ginja's last post reminded me I had the Filthy Kicks site bookmarked for later. Good free music is good.

    Also listening to:
    ohGr- Welt (may be my new fav. "good weather" music)
    Joker's Daughter- The Last Laugh (fella's been on a Danger Mouse kick)
    Gnarls Barkley- St. Elsewhere and The Odd Couple (see above; both have been lost in burnt cd hell for a while and I still need to fill up my Walkman)

    Today i got hold of Grind Madness at the BBC - the Earache Peel Sessions and i´ve just started listening to it.... Holy hell!

    Basically it´s all the Peel sessions for Napalm Death, Extreme Noise Terror, Bolt Thrower, Carcass, Godflesh, Heresy and Intense Degree.

    I´m feeling the Urge to strip naked, break a chair with my teeth and arm wrestle a cat.....

    sjit, how many of you cats are on the LastFM then?

    • CommentTimeMar 10th 2010
    This week's rotation: Tom Waits - Blue Valentine, The Stooges, Nick Cave, the Pixies.
    More importantly, I've actually seen some bands recently.
    Besh o droM - Hungarian gypsy folk rock energetic brilliance. Also on myspace.
    Barons of Tang - local Melbourne band doing 'gypsie deathcore'.
    Suitcase Royale - another local band & theatre group I saw recently.
    Graveyard Train - Melbourne country/horror band.

    Pretty much to two things for the last two days:

    Terrordrome II compilation (with Chosen Few, DJ Fistfuck, Cyanide, Annihilator, Shadowrun, Technohead, Wedlock, Tellurian, Vinyl Killer, Maniac of Noize, Analyzer, A Blunted Vision, Lenny Dee & Ralphie Dee, High Energy, Oral Maniac, Re-Animator, Speedloader, Noisegate, Sons of Aliens,Vitamin, Original Gabber, Salami Brothers, Strontium 9000, Milan, Triplet, Haardcore...) which up to this day, since I have heard it in 1996, remains my favorite hardcore techno thing.
    And a bunch of Aphex Twin/AFX releases (mostly the 90s stuff, up to Drukqkqwzwihdtiuhthoweveryouspellthat)

    Used to use it a lot. Not so much anymore: I found the desktop app was getting a bit thirsty.
    • CommentTimeMar 10th 2010 edited
    @ warrenellis - Me too, but interestingly I found that MediaMonkey has a built in app - it doesn't need the desktop one so I was back on.

    Oh, edit @ notwolf - there's a group for Whitechapel Members.

    @icelandbob That Grindcore at the BBC album looks fantastic. The earliest memory I have of hearing music not played by my parents (i.e. not musicals or Dolly Parton) was seeing John Peel on some kids' show playing Napalm Death (might have been Lawnmower Deth) for about fifteen seconds. Massively nostalgic.
    • CommentTimeMar 11th 2010
    @Icelandbob: Have you read "Choosing Death?" It actually follows Napalm Death, and really Earache in general, through those and has a lot of behind the scenes stuff from that period in death metal. It's a good read.

    out of all of those peel-grind bands, HERESY is the only one i like, and even then im much more into the bands they influenced later on who got even faster. still that record looks nuts!

    new stuff
    PUNCH-eyeless 7" (female vocals/fastcore mixed with youth crew?? yes.)
    UX VILEHEADS first 7"(punkpunkpunk from sweden. kids from DS13/REGULATIONS/dennis from refused's younger brother)
    FALL SILENT/WELLINGTON split 7" (metal core attack from two desert bands)

    RINGERS-hurry up and wait 12" ep (jangly pop punk, with a long last track that i like to describe 'what SOCIAL DISTORTION would sound like if they were good")
    EXTORTION-loose screws 10" (best extreme band in Australia? well, no, that would be AGENTS OF ABHORRENCE. but still....)
    HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH/CHAINSAW TO THE FACE split 10" (unbelievably fast)
    WALLS-s/t 12"
    and yet again,
    CONVERGE-axe to fall 12"
  5.  (7853.55)
    Arcade Fire - Funeral. On repeat.

    Seriously chaps,

    The new Gorillaz album is a lot better than it ought to be.

    Remarkable record.
    • CommentTimeMar 11th 2010
    Zero Boys - Vicious Circle and History Of...

    I got to see them last night and it was amazing. I have bruises to prove it. Even 28 years later, they still play harder than bands half their age.

    Aaaaaand ..... Gjöll, Sum of Transformations

    Hoping to go see Mono next week, presumably without the orchestra (not least because they;d have trouble fitting it in the Brudenell Social Club)

    I'm normally too impatient to listen to jazz

    @Sobreiro, the same thing hapens to me, sometimes jazz can be soooo boring... i used to think in boredom as a negative thing, but now for me, is the ultimate weapon, & it can be armed whith just a yawn.

    More non boring jazz : )

    Steps Ahead "Beirut"

    Steps Ahead

    & lately i can´t stop lisstening this:

    Gorillaz' "Plastic Beach" is a very weird and wonderful record. It should have been a horrible clusterfuck, and by God, they made it work. Solid!
