***June Twenty Seventh Two Thousand and Seven***

    


Ahh, taking a nice vacation means my lazy ass puts off updating the website.  But eventually you get around to it.
There are a couple of photo journal entries, one from a Coconut Coolouts show and another that is the first chunk
of vacation photos from Hawaii.  Plenty more of those to come, by the way. 

Also shot a roll of Lomo fisheye photos while in Hawaii, so hopefully there will be something interesting to post from
those next time around. 


<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

A shitload of songs for shitloading to.

Epsilons - Dressed Up.  This album is kinda hit and miss, but the hits outnumber and they are really super rad. 
I guess these guys are from Orange County?  You'd never guess it. 
Bonus: Just Wanna Love You Girl

Queens of the Stone Age - Little Sister.  It's only fitting that since QOTSA just released a new record, I should
post my two favorite songs from their previous record.  Way to keep shit current, right?
Bonus: Medication

Rogue Wave - 10:1.  True story: the band once dedicated this song to me at a show.  Mostly because everytime
I saw them I'd beg them to play it.  See, sometimes it pays to be an annoying pest.
Bonus: Publish My Love

The Dipers - Ponch's Boyfriend.  I guess this band has some members of the A-Frames and Intelligence in it...
not nearly as good as either of those bands, but this is a pretty great track. 

The Mountain Goats - If You See The Light.  Overall I was pretty underwhelmed by the album this is from (Get
Lonely), but this song really cooks.

The Rattlers - I Won't Be Your Victim.  The lead singer of this group is probably best known for being Joey
Ramone's brother, and there is definitely a Ramones-ish vibe to their only album, though a shade poppier. 

Toots & The Maytals - 54-46 Was My Number.  Maybe my favorite reggae song of all time. 

U.S. Christmas - New War.  Friend rock, but really good friend rock.  If Neil Young played metal it might come
out like this.  They're apparently putting out a record on Neurot in the fall, that shit is big time yo.

Wheat - Death Car.  I had a dub of Wheat's first record on cassette and pretty much wore it out.  What a great
record, and one that has aged quite well.  These are a couple of my favorite tracks from it. 
Bonus:  Karmic Episodes





***June First Two Thousand and Seven***




This picture is indicative of what I ain't been doing much of...having my photo taken by a panda bear.  I'm
hoping I'll get my act together in the near future, but being lazy is awfully fun.  Until then, download some
music, and I put up a couple of new photo journals. 


<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

Songs fer Grabbin'.
You downloading, they hating...


Kano - P's & Q's.  Kano is more miss than hit but this song bangs something fierce.

The Lemonheads - Become The Enemy.  I never would have thought a new Lemonheads record would be
this good, but the proof is in the pudding.
Bonus: Rule Of Three

The Most Serene Republic - (Oh) God
.  Goddamn, it's one good Canadian band right after the other these
days.  I suspect there must have been some sort of governmental intervention, or possibly they are all aliens.

The Stampeders - Sweet City Woman
.  More of those goddamn Canadians, only this one comes from the
always-popular decade known as "the seventies".  You'll be hard pressed to find a finer example of banjo-rock
than this track.

The Weakerthans - Over Retired Explorer
.  Oh look, another Canadian band.  Well at least these guys are
from one of those weird middle-of-nowhere towns, a nice change from the Vancouver/Toronto/Montreal strangle-
hold on the music biz.

Tortoise & Bonnie "Prince" Billy - Thunder Road
.  A non-Canadian cover of the Bruce Springsteen classic. 
Oldham and Tortoise paired for a whole album of covers, and this track is far and away the bet of the bunch.

Zumpano - Broca's Way
.   It's only fitting that the final band would be Canadian, isn't it?  Before the New Porn-
ographers Carl Newman fronted this gang of popsters...honestly, the two groups pretty much sound the same but
for whatever reason Zumpano never caught on.
Bonus: Let's Fight
