Jay Reatard Revisited

              
Posted some digital photos a few entries back; well here are the film companions to go along with them, shot
on my half-frame camera.  Nothing ground-breaking, but a decent representation of his live show, the dude has
a nutso stage presence.  

Also, a couple of new CD reviews posted above...

Turnbuckle Talk with the American Starship Eagle

Our good friend drops in to spill a little wrestling knowledge on the masses...

Well, it has been a while, but Uncle Eagle has finally made it back to the keyboard.  I am writing today to ask all
of you to say a little prayer for your old pal.   I just got back from the Grappling Across Sudan Tour and am nursing
a nut pull that Hell wouldn't have.  It was me versus a gent that called himself the Republic of Chad (I will tear down
the third wall and tell you that his real name wasn't Chad, but rather, Lefaar) and we were locked up in a falls-count-
anywhere, United Nations Match.  


I hate to toot my own horn, but this was simply one of the best matches of my life.  Republic and I went back and
forth for over an hour (truth be told, neither of us wanted to be the loser that had to sport the UN gear and reason
with the Liberation Movement).   Finally, I dropped him with a vicious DDT that would make Jake Roberts cream
his jeans.  Seriously, this match was one for the heavens; before we got out of the county the local writers had
labeled it the "Darfur Donnybrook."


However, after it was all over and the blue cap was donned, I felt a burning that took me back to high school.  
Apparently, my adrenaline had carried me beyond the threshold of pain (that made the third time in a week), but
as the juice waned, my wiener began to scream … that is right, a torn testicle.  It appears that the force from the
DDT was so great that the energy dissipated from his skull went through my body and into my sack (simple kinetic
energy bullshit).   Needless to say, typing on this fucking keyboard has been the least of my worries.  Thus, when
you are praying for all of the other selfish shit you want to go right in your life, drop a line in for me and my nugget.  
We would both appreciate the love, and so would the Sudanese women that await my return for the rematch;
after all, how many more times will I be in Sudan - so why bother with condoms
?


 .....................

Will the love nut heal on the eagle before his next bout of fisticuffs?  Hopefully we'll find out next time...

Lolly Lolly Lolly Get Your Music Here!

Cursive - A Disruption In The Normal Swing Of Things.  Cursive released and odds-n-sods compilation
a couple of years ago...it's sort of scattered in quality, but there are enough good songs on there to make it
worthwhile.  

Deadly Weapons - Having Fun
.  Fun local punk rock with a hint of pop, featuring Tina from The Bobbyteens/
Top Ten on vocals.  All of the songs are short and to the point, never overstaying their welcome (more bands
should try for the less-is-more method more often in my opinion).

The Black Keys - I'll Be Your Man
.  I seldom like any new blues acts, preferring the classics when I'm feeling
that itch, but these white boys from Ohio really seem to know what the fuck they are doing.  Great songwriting
that they keep stripped-down and simple, with just enough crunch on the production to almost fool you into be-
lieving it is from another era.  This is from their debut album in 2002.

The Foundry Field Recordings - Buried Beneath The Winter Frames.  These tracks are from "Prompts/
Miscues", one of my favorite records as of late.  Think Grandaddy plus Sparklehorse plus some shoegaze
influence, it's really a great record that may have made my top albums of 2006 if I had heard it in time.  
Bonus Track: Warning Raids Over Kiev.  

The Magic Numbers - Take A Chance
.  I guess these guys are the hot shit across the pond?  Or at least that
is what I've heard, but I guess they've yet to catch on over here in the States.  The album this track is from,
"Those The Brokes", isn't super great or anything, but there are a few catchy-as-shit songs and this is the best
of the bunch.
