    5 beck – mutations

    Some people had put the other Beck albums on their list, but I think this WAS the best of his work.



    I`m glad someone mentioned Slint;they were awesome!"spiderland" will be later on my list.
    I have a story I heard on the radio about Mogwai`s love of Slint.Mogwai was playing a show with Aerial M,Dave Pajo`s band;Pajo spilled some beer on one of Mogwai guys guitars and one of them said"that`s ok,you were in Slint,you can do whatever you want!"



    Here`s my 16-20:
    Guided By Voices-Alien Lanes
    Cocteau Twins-Heaven or Los Vegas
    Palace Brothers-Palace Brothers(Days in the wake)
    Nick Drake-Pink Moon
    Mazzy Star-She Hangs Brightly
    Here`s my fav classic rock albums-top 5:
    Neil Young-Rust Never Sleeps
    Rolling Stones-Exile on Main Street
    Beatles-White Album
    Jimi Hendrix-Nine to the universe(If you`re all going "wha" this is a pretty amazing album,mostly instrumental,so you get to hear Hendrix`s guitar playing on top;There`s one track with jazz organist Larry Young,the only singing is Jimi singing one verse-"I am what I am thank God,some people don`t understand help them God"Amen to that)
    The Who-Live at Leeds(I heard Mike Watt talking about this in an interview,it`s one of his favs.)
    My fav jazz/blues albums are coming soon.



    Hey John,

    Psychocandy by JAMC is quite the disc…loud..disruptive and oh so cool. Listen to it frequently [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img] Actually have tried using it as a behavioral management plan for a neighbor…person under the stairs kinda deal. Swear at me thru the floor and you will get a blast of Psychocandy…so far pretty effective.

    21. Bryter Later – Nick Drake

    No particular order folks! Couldn’t do just 5, in fact if I had a memory I wouldn’t have stopped at 21.



    Cool choices Javro!,Drop 19`s Deleware!-I thought no one else even heard of them!That Truman`s Water album is cool,don`t have it but I heard `the aroma of Gina Arnold`on the radio before;wicked tune!BT`s Big Red Letter Day is my 2nd fav BT album,I think that album gets overlooked.



    I was going through my old vinyl and stumbled across Delaware the other day. I hadn’t listnened to it for years. There are still some really good tracks on there, and when I was young I remember liking the girl on the cover. Looking at her know I feel like a sickoperv.
    Trumans Water always crack me up. If I ever have to drive any of my dancemusiconlylistening friends anywhere, I’ll stick on the spasm smash album. Rations is the craziest song I have ever heard (with the exception of Beefheart’s Dachau Blues). Don’t know what happened to them, they must have rocked themselves out.
    Take is easy salamiguy.



    Glen from Truman`s water found God and now does Alt-Christian rock,under the name Soul Junk.If you want to check them out go to a site called mp3it they have some Soul junk material.Click on the browse section when you get to the home page and scroll down,all the bands are in alphabetical order of couse.



    Good to see some Jazzzers around here



    Once shared a 5 mile double decker busride with Glen from Trumans Water after a Drive by Jehu gig in Manchester…now there’s a claim to fame (he was going out with a friend of mine at the time).

    crazy…those lo-fi anecdotes.



    oops, shoulda been Drive Like Jehu…’member ’em being very loud and very tight, but their album was a bit shit (Yank Crime)
