    My Wallet List

    I'm streaming 3wk.com at work and getting turned on to a lot of new music ($$trouble$$). But I'm gettin' up there and my memory isn't what it used to be. So, I have started keeping a little list of bands in my wallet so when I go into Newbury Comics I'm not just wandering around in a circle (like when I used to smoke a lot of grass). Here's some of what's on my list and any feedback would help:

    (from 3wk)
    Clearlake: Cedars
    Swimming Pool Q's: Royal Academy of Reality
    Phantom Planet: The Guest
    My Morning Jacket: It Still Moves
    Guided by Voices: Earthquake Glue
    The Fire Theft: s/t
    Ride: Birdman
    20 Miles: Life Doesn't Rhyme

    (other stuff on list)
    The Bellrays
    Andre WIlliams: Silky
    New Wet Kojak
    Vapors: Vaporized
    Bad Company: Burnin' Sky
    Sebadoh: Harmacy
    Beta Band: II

    So, what's in your wallet?

    Exclamation

    Thank the inventor for Post-It Notes. Key: if I have a question mark next to the title, it means, "Do I have this title by this artist?" or "Do I want this title by this artist?"; if I have a question mark by the artist, it means, "What do they sound like?"; if I have an exclamation point next to something, it means, "must get immediately."

    I'll post the list itself, later (it's in my car).

    They rock, but not all their albums are good. I wasn't as impressed with Cypher as I was with A.M.G.O.D., f'r'instance.

    I want I want I want.

    My mom told me when I was a kid that was my middle name!


    Anyway, I want:

    That new Crimso dvd
    Buncha Horror genre dvd's
    2 more Camel dvd's
    the new Nektar cd
    the new Marillion dvd, avail. only on marillion.com
    that ZZTop boxed set
    a rare Mi-Sex cd
    and more titles from Clepsydra, Collage, Pendragon, and Galahad.


    Just got my hands on a Timothy Pure cd called "Island of the Misfit Toys". Different stuff for sure but sounds pretty good.


    I want the Cult dvd, the new Pearl Jam dvd, a Yellowman dvd, that Wailers band dvd, and that new Allman Brothers dvd.

    Just got my hands on Manfred Mann's earth Band "The Roaring Silence". Never heard anything by them except "Blinded"...

    I want that new Pallas concert dvd, and also the rest of the Yes dvd's that I don't have.

    Whaddaya know, I just got ahold of a cd by DEYSS called "At-King". These guys are an obscure German/Swiss neo prog band and are pretty killer.

    Oh, I also want badly 2 Camel cd's, Rajaz and "Harbour of Tears".

    And I also happen to have an extra brand new import copy (not a copy but the real thing) of the new Rick Wakeman prog cd "Out There" if anyone wants to trade me something prog for it.

    I heard a song by them on a surf radio show a few years back and they did an amazing surf-punk cover of Vince Guraldi's "Linus and Lucy". It was hysterical.

    You have this?

    California Guitar Trio - A Christmas Album
    Uriah Heep - Sweet Freedom
    Camel - Breathless and Nod And A Wink
    Frameshift - Unweaving The Rainbow. Written by Henning Pauly of Chain featuring James LaBrie on vocals. Sounds very interesting. Troy would hate this.
    New release by Chain. Can't remember the title.
    Dream Theater - Train of Thought
    Adagio - Underworld
    Magellan - Impossible Figures

    Just ordered:

    Pineapple Thief - Variations On A Dream. Supposedly, a blend of Porky Tree and Radiohead. We shall see. Sounds interesting anyway.

    Strawbs - Just a Collection of Antiques and Curios

    Troy says that Tangent is like the rest of the flower kings stuff. i.e. lots of noodling.

    That's okay, I don't mind noodling. I've read that some sections of the music recreate the Canterbury sound, which I happen to like.

    And damn dude, you don't want much do ya

    new one

    More translation -- in my case, a lot of the time, the problem is, I don't know what I have. For instance, I now have a Mice Parade album or two, but don't know which ones. Ditto Skyclad.

    Also, a lot of these are sparked by actually seeing the disk, and picking it up, looking at the cover, and wondering if what is inside is as cool as the cover. I no longer just buy it any more.

    Yup, I do. Their version of "Linus and Lucy" is actually called "Charlie Brown (Schroeder version)." They recorded that back in the early 80s.
    Good stuff, let me know if you're interested in hearing it, and don't expect the rest of JFA's stuff to sound like that song (it's much more hardcore).

    Ya know, this is really a nice album. I do remember recommending it around here ages ago but never recently. Not sure how much you are into the whole orchestrated Burt Bacharach type pop thing, but if you are this is one fine album. Produced by Jim O'Rourke and taking many cues from his own similar Eureka album. The epic opening track runs about 9.5 minutes and is kind of a modern twisting and turning classic. Probably worth the cost of the CD if you can find it used. Lots of Chicago's finest contribute including like-minded Sean O'Hagan of High Llamas fame and Doug McCombs of Tortoise/Eleventh Dream Day and Sally Timms of the Mekons and Edith Frost and lots more including the previously mentioned O'Rourke on keyboard stuff and guitar. Nice recording too. Minty Fresh.

    But if you aren't really into that lounge scene, it might not be the perfect match

Critics love him though. If you don't know much from him you might wanna proceed cautiously as some of it is pretty esoteric or avant-garde or just plain strange. I figured I would probably only enjoy about half of it at the most so decided to skip it for now. Still quite a bit of his past work I haven't heard. Of course, with your new found appreciation of the Velvet Underground it may be to your liking, although Lou Reed had Cale voted out of the band before that third album you were recently talking about so it has a less experimental sound than the harder edged first two. Let me know if you do decide to get it

    It was actually a nostalgic selection. J.J. Cale was big with my geetar-playing buddy, Keith back in the 70's. I remember he had Troubadour which was really nice and I recognized the covers of the albums, Really and Naturally from his collection. I always remembered him as being southern-style, guitar-driven rock.

    I was also somewhat influenced by the positive reviews and the great album title.

    Interesting fact about his VU connection. I bet you'd be real good at Six Degrees of Velvet Underground!

    But John Cale has no connection to J.J. Cale. Is that what makes it nostalgic?

    What ZZ box set?

    Anyway, I want:

    that ZZTop boxed set

    Are you talking about the first 6 discs remixed and boxed up (The ZZ Top Sixpack)?

    If so, I have it & would make you a copy.
