The Hills-Bring Me Sand
Spacey Swedish krautrock psych. This is from a reissue of their second album Master Sleeps (Rocket Records, 2013). It originally came out in 2011 and quickly went out of print. I was late to this band, thanks to the guys from Goat for turning me onto this. The Hills also came out with a live album this year on the Cardinal Fuzz label, which is a really good label for psych.
Apache Dropout-Quaaludes ’68
I got to this in a kind of roundabout way. I read something by Everett True about Thee Open Sex (from Bloomington Indiana), a psych band not unlike a stripped down version of The Black Angels and it was really good. Apache Dropout is their sister band and it’s a lot more garagey. This is from their album Bubblegum Graveyard (2012, Trouble in Mind).
While going through a collection of albums we just bought at work, I found a bunch of old local flyers, etc. The customer who bought the record (a completely trashed, unplayable copy of the Fatal Rage LP) that these were in was kind enough to let me scan the stuff in it. I know this post is super obscure and local and the title “Small Scene” is from Dirge record, not Fatal Rage. [click on image to enlarge]
A.H. Kraken-Gianna Michaels
French noiseniks A.H. Kraken and their tribute to porn actress Gianna Michaels. From their 2008 single on Sweet Rot records. Loud, dumb, noisy, shit. Huzzah! [click on arrow thing to listen]
Dredd Foole & The Din-It All Ends Here Dredd Foole is a Boston guy named Dan Ireton and The Din (in this case) are The Volcano Suns and Kenny Chambers of Moving Targets. This is from the 1985 album Eat My Dust Cleanse My Soul (Homestead). I really love this record, it’s like an alternative universe version of Mission of Burma/Volcano Suns. Not better but great in it’s own right.[To listen,click on arrow thing below]
1)I was woken up yesterday morning by Lucy barking. It wasn’t the usual “ROWWT ROWWT ROWWT” She was rolling her R’s so it sounded like a dog child (not a puppy, a child with a dogs head or vice versa) trying to sing the beginning of The Fall’sRowche Rumble.(for indisputable audio corroboration click on blue link below) http://feedtim.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/1-06-rowche-rumble-live2.m4a
Luce E. Smith
2) Found this record a while ago, thought it was pretty cool. It’s a Columbia Masterworks Lp that I think is from the 1950′s. I don’t know who the artist is (click on image to enlarge) 3) Found this in a beat up copy of Peter Frampton-I’m In You (Click on image to enlarge)
Sex Clark Five-Sarajevo
I don’t know much about these guys. Formed in Alabama in the 80′s this is from their first full length album Strum & Drum (Records to Russia, 1987). An album of really great short pop songs that would have fit in nicely a few years later with the Elephant 6 collective (Neutral Milk Hotel, Olivia Tremor Control, Minders, Elf Power, etc). I don’t know why these guys guys aren’t more well known, this record is amazing. Sarajevo tells the story of the beginning of WWI in under two minutes and it’s catchy as hell.
