    buckingham rabbit

    been waiting to find these used and at a good price, and the moment finally came last night:

    nick lowe–jesus of cool
    hank williams–40 greatest hits

    neko case is on my watch list as well…just waiting for the right time to buy.


    Bucky Ramone

    Salamiguy, I like the Neko Case album, you should try to find her ‘Canadian Amp’ mini-album, mostly covers (Neil Young’s ‘Dreamin’ Man’ amongst them), it’s a nice album, the Ramones, that’s a classic one, and East River Pipe was one of my great discoveries of last year, love that album!

    Going out now to buy some new records myself tonight, have been much too busy at work the last couple of days! [img]images/smiles/icon_mad.gif[/img] [img]images/smiles/icon_redface.gif[/img] [img]images/smiles/icon_sad.gif[/img]


    Bucky Ramone

    Salamiguy, I think that the ‘Canadian Amp’ cd is only available through mailorder or at her gigs (I bought it at bloodshotrecords.com)

    Yesterday I bought:
    the Notwist – Neon Golden
    The first great album of 2002! This German band makes beautiful songs (some hints of Pavement and Pinback here and there) and spices things up with some very fine electronics and nice dubby basses, it sounds excellent!



    I bought 2 DVD’s

    * SouthPark: Bigger, Longer & Uncut
    * Tombraider: Special Collector’s Edition

    Im waiting for the 6 Releases from Songs Ohia
    That Man is sick, 6 Releases in 3 Months <img>
    & Im going 2 Ekko 2 Finally see him live


    Bucky Ramone

    Today I bought:

    Millionaire – Outside the simian flock
    Fine new Belgian band from part-time dEUS-member Tim Vanhamel, a weird mix of Beck, Pavement, Prince and the Pixies (to name but a few…), why doesn’t Holland have bands like this?
    (….and why didn’t we qualify for the World Championships soccer????….)

    Mercury Rev – The dark is rising
    new cd-single with some interesting new tracks: Chopin’s ‘Nocturne (opus 27)’, a cover of Black Sabbath’s ‘Planet Caravan’ and two live tracks.



    I started listening to Nick Drake in 1995,J mentioned him in interviews and Sebadoh covered Pink Moon.Bought the Way To Blue comp. and liked it alot.Pink Moon is my fav Drake record,he did`nt add the string arrangements like on the 2 previous records,just did everything himself and it worked.
    Lucinda Williams does a good cover of Which Will,Run On covered Road, I`ll send those to you on AG Tony if you want.

    Tonight on 88.5 they played a free form from belle and sebastian. I think this is really good to, they remind me of the smiths, from the tracvks they played…</font><hr></blockquote><font>can’t go wrong with them in my opinion, or at least too wrong. if you like them, check out the field mice. they’ve been described as the link between the smiths and belle and sebastian, but they’re better than the smiths.


    Bucky Ramone

    the Nomads – Showdown 1981-1993
    CD 1: ‘The Best of the Best’
    CD 2: ‘Rare Stuff, Oddities & Live Shit’
    …..some of my old Nomads vinyl started to show holes, this is a perfect replacement!!!!!!!!
    Now blasting from my speakers: their version of the Stooges’ ‘Real cool time’, awesome….

    buckingham rabbit

    some stuff from ebay, some from the record store.

    x-ray spex-germfree adolescents. damn, this chick is pissed–and sleater-kinney rips them off.

    blackeyed susans-all souls alive. won this for only 25 cents, and well worth it!

    ricky nelson-legendary masters (volume 1).

    peter perrett-hearts on fire. comes with a video too.

    the jazz butcher-a scandal in bohemia. even paid full price for this.



    Stuff I picked up since my last post to this thread:

    1. Juliana Hatfield– Juliana’s Pony: Total System Failure. Critics, the type that were in den buck’s article, mentioned this is a lousy effort and that the other disc, Beautiful Creatures, which is mellower from what I hear, is a better work. All I know is that Jules has come a long way with her guitar playing and the lyrics on this release are snarly almost all the way through. That, and I like it, is all I will say.

    2. Royal Trux– Cats and Dogs. An old favorite of mine that I am glad to have back in the ol’ collection.

    3. and 4. Sleater-Kinney– Dig Me Out and All Hands on The Bad One. You know, I don’t quite know what to think about Dig Me Out as of yet, since I am too busy enjoying AHOTBO. Comparing the two, you can see how the musicianship has been continually improving. Their lyrics are incredible as well. Perhaps they do not have a lot of new ways to project vocally, but other aspects of their artistry are innovative and have bands copying them. No better respect than that, I think.

    5. and 6. Naked Raygun — Jettison and Throb Throb. Hmm, what is about this band besides the fact their name has been on the main forum page for a few weeks that makes them interesting? I don’t know, go ask the critics <img> . Seriously, they were a unit from Chicago that played for almost the entire decade of the eighties, ending in 1990, taking from various bands like Wire, Stiff LIttle Fingers and the Buzzcocks and funneling the influences into both their demographics and the political landscape of the time. What came out of them was high-energy, harmonic punk rock with a heart and a mind. It is likely that if Naked Raygun had not been the standard bearers, along with the Effigies, for punk in the Chicagoland area, we might not have seen the break in 1991. Maybe it could have happened, but this band showed what it took to from town to town to town for peanuts just to do what they liked and to give their fatihful well over their money’s worth. Don’t take my word for it, check them out and try not to overgeneralize about labels. Break it down a piece at a time and gold will be found.

    7. Modest Mouse– Lonesome Crowded West. Still getting an over-all feel for this album. The gems are obvious, like Heart Cooks Brain, Truckers, and "Drunk". The thing with Modest Mouse that grabs me probably like no other band is their lyrical
    style. I think they compress a lot of ideas into a few words and I will admit, the subtleties are sometimes lost on me. At times I think I understand something and then I have to reread or relisten to catch it again. I think lyrically, this album is more challenging than Moon and Antarctica and not as straightforward in the message end of things. I wonder if they write like J and do the music and then just find words that fit together. Obvious a lot of time goes into the lyrical end of things or perhaps I am just on a different cognitive level than Isaac Brock. Who knows.

    8. Free Touch and Go/Quarterstick Records Sampler 2001. This came with the NR cd’s from Touch and Go along with a bunch of stickers for different bands. T and G still rock.
    1. Elk City "Three Ears"
    2. Empire State "Explode"
    3. The Frames "Lay Me Down"
    4. The Kingsbury Manx "Let You Down"
    5. The Lofty Pillars "Underworld"
    6. Tara Jane ONeil "Your Rats Are"
    7. Superchunk "Art Class"
    8. Quasi "It’s Raining"
    9. Shannon Wright "Less Than a Moment
    10. Quasi "Mammon"
    11. Calexico "Crystal Frontier"
    12. The Ex "Walt’s Dizzyland"
    13. The New Year "Gasoline"
    14. Bedhead "Lepidoptera"
    15. Shipping News "The March Song"



    BR-Sleater Kinney was influenced by X Ray Spex for sure but check out the Throwing Muses early stuff,very similar to SK.
    Tom-I have Juliana`s Total Failure System,have`nt listened to it much yet.Bed was`nt that bad an album once I got into it.
    SK`s AHOTBO is a great album,one of my favs of 2000,I liked it alot more then The Hot Rock which I found the production weighed it down.Dig Me Out is the best SK album ever,Corin sounds out of control while Carrie keeps some sanity.Things You Say has one of the most beautiful choruses I ever heard.
    Words And Guitar is kinda of an anthem for me.


    Long Distance Drunk

    Corin Tucker is god & the Queen of Rock. Personally I like Call the Doctor the most of all of the SK disks, "Good Things" is my favorite song. I like to burn 2 short CDs onto 1 blank one, and I have Dig Me Out (truely a great disk) and Dino’s Fossils on one disk. Pretty cool.

    I just got:
    1) White Stripes–White Blood Cells: Pretty rockin’ little disk, only gave it a couple of listens as yet
    2)Bad Religion–The Process of Belief: best BR disk since Stranger than Fiction
    3) The Strokes–Is this It: held off on this one, but whatever issues I had with this band, they write really good songs. Surely the bastard children of Paul Westerberg and Chrissie Hynde.

    Got about 20 CDs on MP3 the other day, so I think I’m set for awhile…

    One of the strokesguys is Albert Hammond Jr, Yeh the son of Albert "it always rain in southern california, I’m a train, I don’t want to live in airdisaster" Hammond.
    So Chrissie Hynde, what did you do?

    I’m still working very hard to get tickets for "the in five minutes sold out concert of the strokes" in Amsterdam….wish me luck <img> <img>


    Long Distance Drunk

    Good luck!



    BR-I have that Blackeyed Susans album,especially like the Leonard Cohen cover they do.
    HTW-Good Things is one of my fav SK songs too.White Stripes are cool,their second album De Stijl is a good album too,more bluesy then WBC,they do a wicked cover of Son House`s Death Letter,one of my fav blues songs.
