    Modest Mouse`s Iassic Brock`s mom was a member of the white panthers.So now you can link the MC5 to Modest Mouse.
    Sorry about saying that Love As Laughter was out of character for you,there`s a Love As Laughter video concert at HOB.com,so you might want to check that out.
    The Hellacopters supershitty cd was $27.99 and Dissapointment blues was $16.99 here,missed out on getting them,maybe it will pop up again someday,I think I even saw a Hellacopters cd around at a used store,that was last year before I heard about them.



    Hey Salamiguy,

    Linking Modest Mouse to MC5, gotta love that…definitely [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img] Friend of mine interviewed John Sinclair in 99 I think, said he had to cut it short when he started talking about the revolution [img]images/smiles/converted/eek.gif[/img] When he gets his site back up I will post a link for you, tons of great interviews and reviews of books/music. Think you would enjoy it, he likes a lot of the same stuff you do…your names not Colin is it??? Just kidding [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img]


    ps on the Hellacopters site you can listen to some tunes and check out some videos…preview time [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]



    Hey Salamiguy,

    Disappointment Blues is a pretty good place to start with the Hellacopters…although High Visibility is amazing as well. Had to special order HV locally…$38 bucks Canadian…OUCH.
    Hellacopters did a split with Gluecifer and also The Flaming Sideburns, you might want to test run those if you know what I mean before spending big bucks. I love them but just in case. Bearshare is currently my guilty pleasure download site, but I really do buy more music because of the test run thing…honestly [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]

    LAL out of character for me…don’t know what to make of that [img]images/smiles/converted/eek.gif[/img] [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img] [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img] I’m a Bee kicks definitely, Sexy Reindeer, Margaritas, Featherweight Champ and The Youth are Plastic are some of my other fav’s by LAL. Voodoo guy just asked what I was listening to..I’m A Bee…called it a rocking Modest Mouse like sound [img]images/smiles/converted/rolleyes.gif[/img] Too funny.

    Future Now films has been working on a MC5 documentary for awhile, hope to see it in the near future. No clue as to which mom of which fav indie group worked with the White Panthers…please fill me in.

    Non-Dino Rotation for this week –

    SOD – Speak English or Die ( [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img])

    Magic Dirt – What Rock Stars are Doing Today – (Thanks again James)

    Beatles – Mix cd I made with tracks from Revolver foward
    the only Beatles I really care for begin with Revolver. The early stuff is great I just don’t find myself listening to it much.

    Sonics – Maintaining My Cool
    I need not explain this one

    Ice Cube – Amerikkkas Most Wanted
    Nor this one

    Built to Spill – Ancient Melodies Of The Future
    Maybe this one will grow on me. Not really getting into it

    Allison, going to try to pick up a copy of Disappointment Blues as my intro to the hellacopters [img]images/smiles/converted/smile.gif[/img] Thanks for the tip [img]images/smiles/converted/tongue.gif[/img]

    Digging that Modest Mouse/MC5 connection too salamiguy [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img] Pretty funny [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]



    Hey Allison:
    There`s two Hellacopters videos at Rollingstone.com;"Soulseller"and"The Devil Stole The Beat From The Lord".Maybe you already know about them but I thought I`d mention it.
    Jeremiah-The new Built To Spill I think will grow on you after awhile,I bought it the other day,I like the song that has the organ at the end,reminds me of John Cale`s playing with the Velvet Underground on "Sister Ray".



    Been a while since I’ve posted on this thread so I thought an update was in order. Sorry, but I haven’t been getting me a piece of that hot new indie rock pie, but sticking to old classics:

    Modest Mouse – unsure of CD title [borrowed]
    Man Or Astroman – Destroy All Astromen
    Portishead – Live Roseland Ballroom NYC
    SP – Machina II: F&EOMM
    NIN – Pretty Hate Machine
    NIN – The Fragile (Disk 2)
    Dino Jr. – Green Mind

    That’s it lately. I’m learning to like Modest Mouse. As I said above, a friend let me borrow it and it’s proven great.



    Oh Yeah,I was going to mention some stuff I`m listening to:
    Angels Of Light-New Mother:bought this awhile ago and did`nt listen to it ,just listened to it today;this is Michael Gira`s post-Swans band,the Swans depended on distorted sound scapes,this band is largely acoustic guitar,piano,violin,accordion,etc. he kind of reminds me of Ian Curtis(Joy Division),the Swans once covered a Joy Division tune.
    Bulit To Spill-Ancient Melodies From The Future:it`s not as appealing as other BTS but I still like it"The Weather"with Doug sounding closer to Neil Young`s voice then before is cool.
    Cannonball Adderley-Cannonball`s Bossa Nova:kind of sunny day on a sailboat music.
    Nanci Griffith-Best of:She tends to get too sentimental for my tastes sometimes,but there`s still some songs I like on this.
    Weird Nightmare:Meditations on Mingus:I usually don`t like 90`s jazz except for some stuff,this is one of them;who could resist to hear Henry Rollins read some Mingus writing,Chuck D rap about a LA jazz club,Voidoids guitarist Robert Quine clang his way through a Mingus tune or ex-Beefheart guitarist Gary Lucas play Mingus`s"Haitian Fight Song"on lap steel.




    Jeremiah don’t think you will be disappointed by that Hellacopters disc, they cover a SRB
    and Motorhead tune on that as well…too cool.

    Salamiguy thanks for the tip about those videos…too bad they are such poor quality.
    That MC5/Modest Mouse link is killing Voodoo Guy…too funny. [img]images/smiles/converted/lol.gif[/img]

    Allison [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]



    Hey Allison
    Launch.com has those videos as well,should have mentioned that before,I don`t use their site because their membership takes so long,alot of legal stuff you have to read,if you are already a member you should`nt have no problem;they let you watch one video without joining then after that you have to join to watch any more.
    I hope the quality is better than rollingstone`s site,so you may want to check that out.



    Sgt. Pepper`s is one of my fav Beatles album,I always used to laugh about Mr. Kite;Pee Wee`s Playhouse had Mr Kite,I always thought about that song.Sonic Youth do a cool cover of"Within you without you" on a Sgt. Pepper`s tribute album.
    Ramones debut album is great,a blueprint for thousands of bands.An album that changed alot of lives.

    Yeah, if you listen to all the Beatles albums in order of release, Sgt. Pepper is really the point where you realize, "My God, Lennon wasn’t trying to be cool at all."

    As for the Ramones, I agree entirely. Like when we were making an indie compilation over in the mix tape forum, nearly every Ramones song mentioned was from that LP. It just seems like every song on that album IS my favorite song by the band, and there’s very few albums I can saw that about: Led Zeppelin IV, comes to mind as another.



    cool thread . . . i get many great referrals of new-to-me music this way, so thank you all! similarly, my cousin just turned me on to a file sharing site KaZaA.com and recent downloads i enjoy include: J’s take on the Smiths’ ‘The Boy With a Thorn in His Side’, and Built to Spill’s live version of N.Young’s ‘Cortez the Killer’. I dig covers like these (maybe another cool thread topic? best/fav cover song?)
    As far as actual CD’s, recently i bought ‘Bug’ at my local music shop and that’s been stoking my eardrums daily – I bought ‘Green Mind’ in ’92 and been a fan since, but never heard "the early stuff" til now . . . Newer records i’m listening to include ‘Acrophobe’ by BadAstronaut – these guys rock – from my home town, so maybe I’m biased . . .("emo/punk" – I hate the genre labels, but i guess that’s what they’re calling heavy guitarsbassdrums layered with cello and keyboard arrangements these days- see either http://www.honestdons.com or http://www.myrecords.com for more . . .). Also spinning ‘Les Sables Magiques’ by Tricky Woo – ("rock" – can’t call it anything else – ‘classic’ and ‘punk’ rolled into one – Allman Bros. & MC5 often referenced in reviews . . .) I caught these guys live while on a trip to Canada two years ago and was totally blown away! see and *phear* it @ http://www.trickywoo.com !!!

    Absolutely. Since I’ve came here I’ve gotten so many great tips about new music (especially from this thread and most anything Salamiguy posts) that I’d never have heard otherwise. We should all update this thread weekl, IMO.



    1) Indie Compilation by me that includes Modest Mouse, Yo La Tengo, Grandaddy, Sugar, Built To Spill and Husker Du. Before I came to this site I hadn’t listened to any of these bands. Thanks folks. Thanks a LOT. "Cowboy Dan," "Sugarcube," "Car," "Dramamine," and "Interstate 8" are absolutely killer.

    2) Lyle Lovett compilation. Seriously, if you haven’t given this guy a listen, do yourself a favor and do so. "Creeps Like Me," "Friend of the Devil," "L.A. County," or "Skinny Legs." Lyle put on the best show i’ve EVER seen. Brass, cello, extensive percussion section and the usual suspects. Everybody is decked out in Armani suits. Usually has a group of black backup singers. AWSOME date concert. Fellas, you WILL get some luvin’. And notice I spelled "luvin’" with a "u." Know what I mean??

    3) "More Light" It’s been a fantastic summer album and I bet dollars to donuts it’s a hell of a fall/winter album too. We’ll see. It’s funny that many of the older posters use the term "album" while the word ain’t even in some of the younger folks’ vocabulary, even though there isn’t THAT much difference in age.

    4) Wilco’s "Being There" Jeff Tweedy is very cool. Does a great version of "Froggy Went A Courtin’," but it’s not on the album…..errrrrr…..CD.

    5) Blazin’ It compilation CD. Bob Dylan, Wilco, Son Volt, Jayhawks, Willie Nelson and Steve Earle.

    6) The Very Best of Otis Redding. What can I say…..I gotta new girlfriend. This al….uh….CD is a big favorite of hers. If you wanna get a cool CD to listen to on a date, this would be it.

    7) Soundgarden’s "Badmotorfinger." I am man and I hate Oprah Winfrey. Grrrrrrrr.

    8) Mike Johnson "Year of Mondays" This is a great "rainy day" album. We have had one rainy day in the last two months here in Tulsa. I play this over and over, hoping it rains. Something tells me it’s not working.



    Here’s my 5:

    Swervedriver*Raise*–their guitar fx are amazing! Fave track: Feel So Real!

    Ride*Leave Them All Behind*– INCREDIBLE!!!

    Jimmy Eat World*Clarity*– i’m turning into a lil’ emo grrl [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Pavement*Slanted & Enchanted*– One of my all time faves! It’s a classic!

    Legendary Jim Ruiz Group*Oh, Brother Where Art Thou?* such a lovely lil’ kitschy group [img]images/smiles/converted/smile.gif[/img]

    I could go on forever!!! [img]images/smiles/converted/lol.gif[/img]
