***September Twelfth Two Thousand and Seven***



Exactly one month since my last update...planning for a wedding (and avoiding the planning at the same time),
playing too much "Picross DS" on my Gameboy and general laziness are the best excuses I can come up with. 
Not that it really matters anyways. 

And I don't have that much to report this time either...there are a couple of new photo journal entries and a bunch
of new songs below.  Also, take a ppep at my good pal Andrew's website which recently got an overhaul and now
looks all kinds of professional.  Not as professional as this one, but damn close.

"Keep it churchy!"

Human Television - Automobile.  These Floridians play a nice brand of jangly indie pop with the smallest hint of
emo, but don't hold that against them.  For some reason their tunes remind me a lot of the "college rock" I grew up
with in high school.  And while I like this pretty well now in my old age, I'm certain they would have been one of my
very favorite bands in 1992.
     Bonus - In Front Of The House.

Jarvis - Black Magic.  There is a high probability that I like this solo album by JArvis Cocker more than anything
he ever did with Pulp, but don't tell the cool kids.
     Bonus - Fat Children

Television - The Dream's Dream.  The best song off of "adventure", though I gotta say that this album is such a
let down compared to the first one "Marquee Moon". 

The Faces - Ooh La La.  This is pretty much the only form of Rod Stewart I can stand, save a solo song or two. 
Plus he's just a creepy looking bastard, so that doesn't help.  And yeah, it's not as good as The Small Faces, but
it still scratches an itch.
      Bonus - Stay With Me

The Nerves - Hanging On The Telephone.   This legendary power-pop band only officially released one album,
an EP, but their influence has been felt for decades.  And before you ask, yes this is their song and Blondie covered
it.  Hope they saw some nice royalties from it becoming a hit, but somehow I doubt it.
      Bonus - When Ya Find Out

The Rosebuds - Get Up Get Out.  My old pals The Rosebuds took a decidedly different path on their third album
"Night of the Furies" - they're still a fantastic pop band, but this go around they infused a heavy dose of electronic
beats and dance tempos, the end result being an album that sounds like it would have been recorded in 1985. 

Zolar-X - Rocket Roll.  Words fail with this band - spaceman glam rock from the 70s?  They are one of those bands
that either sound great or irritating depending on what type of mood you are in.
