DB Coopoer - Buy American

DB Coopoer - Buy American (Warner Bros LP, 1980)

This underrated record is a pure gem of American New Wave. DB is a singer songwriter guitarist backed by a tight band, a cross between the first Elvis Costello and the first Tom Petty with The Heartbreakers.

Songs are so sharp, guitars so poppy and loud, he sings out loud and straight, too bad this record is just a cult for a spare number of people and never been reissued on CD.

He he he I follow myself

He he he I follow myself Smile Just been back and I picked up from my extended LP library the super classic Pearl by Janis Joplin and the Full Tilt Boogie band.

We are still in Frisco (also DB Cooper was from Frisco if memory serve me well) and this copy was played by me thousand time. I think I bought it new like in 1973, so a little late, then it is an original Columbia pressing on Columbia groove and it sound perfect. This is one of the demonstration, IMHO, any cd remaster of this great classic album can't stay side by side with this original vinyl copy.

God bless you Janis.

Oh ok, it's me again. This

Oh ok, it's me again. This evening I'm listen to:

Spirit - The First Album 1968

This is Randy California/Ed Casidy band. This album was recorded in 1968 and I have to admit in the past I was thinking it loose focus on some too jazzy interludes. Now ,even if I think, The Family That Plays Together is still the Spirit best album, I do appreciate this record a lot more.

Too bad I do not own a Columbia USA original copy. I just bought this in 1979 in London, so it is a reissue UK pressing and it doesn't sound too dynamic to me compared to a good USA pressing, then the groove of vinyl still pay his dues to this mix of electric and acoustic instruments.And it works great, also compared to the CD reissue I also own.

Good album, complete with the track that Jimmy Page ripped off for Stairway To Heaven.

Siouxsie and the Banshees - Once Upon a Time / The Singles

The very definition of 'all killer, no filler'. A perfect compilation LP, 5 singles on each side from their birth to their peak. Over 30 years later and I've never been tempted to get another Siouxsie compilation.

Listening to Throwing Muses albums all day and night because my daughter has discovered that she shares a birthday with Kristin Hersh! 

'The Real Ramona.' 

'House Tornado'

We are also swooning over, 'Vauxhall And I' our fave Moz record. 

Throwing Muses are touring in September with Tanya Donelly as special guest 

And I'll be there.

Had a conversation recently about under-rated guitarists. Kristin Hersh was top of my list. One hesitates to suggest her gender has any part to play in her incredible guitar craft being overlooked, I prefer to think it is simply over-shadowed by her even greater songwriting art.

Twice Upon A Time is rather good too.

One of our favourite Friday

One of our favourite Friday night records when we got drunk on two bottles of Newcastle Brown after school:I'd be 17 or 18. In a class of its own and surely the greatest live album ever recorded. Well, I think so anyway.

It's all gone a bit 1989...

It's all gone a bit 1989... Must be the beer...

 

(Gotta say the Nagaoka MP-200 does metal very well)

Holy Terror - Mind Wars, massively underrated 1988 thrash on Under One Flag

Sabbat - Dreamweaver, 1989 on Noise Records, got to see them live a couple of years ago. Superb.

Coroner - Punishment For Decadence, Swiss thrash on Noise from 1988

Sacred Reich - The American Way, 1990

Autopsy - Mental Funeral, say no more

Entombed - Left Hand Path, original 1990 Earache release
