Great topic Allison!
You guys are up late!!!! I am very jelous of those days off, I hope you guys are making the most of ’em!
What I’ve been listening too (non-dino)…
1) At The Drive-In – Relationship Of Command
*I just think this is a great rock record. Have not heard any of their earlier stuff though. Makes for a FAST drive into work [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img]
Maybe too fast *looks at warning ticket*
2) Modest Mouse – This Is A Long Drive For Someone with Nothing to Think About
* This is a long title to type for someone that is at work [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img] Don’t even know where to begin. Nearly perfect. [img]images/smiles/converted/smile.gif[/img]
Allison, my wife hates them too but I get the same twisted pleasure from watching her face when she is in my car [img]images/smiles/converted/evil.gif[/img]
3) Built to Spill – Keep It Like A Secret
* Carry the Zero & Broken Chairs are tied for my fave tracks on the album. BC is a great whistle along tune
4) Pavement – Westing (By Musket & Sextant)
* Break this out every summer. I spent a couple weeks making my own cover of this whole album in my bedroom at one point with a shitty epiphone Les Paul jr, 2 small amps (mutated by myself), my old Vestor Bass (a short lived but kick ass guitar company owned by Gene Simmons), drum samples on a keyboard and some cheap ass mics. Lo-fi indeed. Always takes me back…
"I’m taking the next bus outta here
I’m gonna head to Box Elder, MO"
5) RZA – RZA as Bobby Digital in Stereo-
* This album cracks me up but the line that takes the cake for me is when ODB starts talking about "triple breed M.F.’s"
That is just too much [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img]
Probably my favorite rap Producer/Engineer although Ice Cube is still my favorite rapper (if you can forgive him for that Korn stuff [img]images/smiles/converted/rolleyes.gif[/img] ). Speaking of which, did you know the Del the Funky Homosapian is Ice Cube’s cousin which brings yet another 6 degrees of J Mascis down to 2.
also, like Mattman I have many, many mp3s from my cds and such that I have archived to cdr. The Complete Ramones collection, Complete Dino + 2 vols of bootlegs, Complete Sonic Youth and various others. This helps get me throught the work day!!!!!
better get back to work [img]images/smiles/converted/rolleyes.gif[/img]
damn I miss my bass….
