Not That You Asked, but… (another truthful post)

My halloween costume, the cover of the Red Red Meat reissue. trick or treat.

my best of 2009
[Please allow me to wallow in my record geekery, thank you.]
There was a lot of really good music that came out this year. First the new records, I know the Death record was recorded in the ‘70s but I don’t think any of it ever came out before this year. For Christmas I also got the new Bassholes- And Without a Name (Columbus Discount) and the Michael Yonkers/Plastic Crimewave Sound-Bleed Out (Spiral Staircase) but I haven’t had a chance to listen to them yet, I’m sure they would have made the list.
[there’s no order to this]
New cd’s/lp’s:
Wooden Shjips-Dos (Holy Mountain)
Ty Segall-Lemons (Goner)
Spider Bags-Goodbye Cruel World, Hello Crueler World (Birdman)
Boston Spaceships- Zero to 99 (Guided By Voices, Inc.)
Jack Rose & The Black Twig Pickers-S/T (VHF)
Death-For the Whole World to See (Drag City)
Mudhoney-Live at El Sol (Munster)
Waumiss-S/T (Odessa)
El Jesus de Magico-Scalping the Guru (Columbus Discount)
Pissed Jeans-King of Jeans (Sub Pop)
Thee Oh Sees-Dog Poison (Captured Tracks)
Forge Your Own Chains-Psychedelic Ballads & Dirges ’68-’74[comp] (Now Again)

Re-Issues
Of course the Big Star-Keep an Eye on the Sky and the Beatles-Mono box, because I am a record store mutant and we live for that shit. Other really good re-issues:
Red Red Meat-Bunny Gets Paid (Sub Pop)
Loop-World in Your Eyes-(Reactor)
Eddy Current Suppression Ring-S/T (Goner)

Singles
There was a lot of goddamned singles this year, I missed about 3/4 of them. Here’s a bunch I liked:
Andre Ethier-Running of the Bulls (dull knife)
Sic Alps-L Mansion (slumberland)
Ebonics- s/t (daggerman)
Easy Action-She ain’t my Girlfiend (shake it)
GG King-Drug Zoo (rob’s house)
UV Race-Malaria (s-s records)
Woven Bones-Your Sorcery (sweet rot)

I HAD A NICE PLAYLIST TO GO ALONG WITH THE LIST, BUT I HAVE NO GODDAMN IDEA HOW TO GET A DIVSHARE PLAYLIST ONTO HERE, UGH.

  1. Don’t forget Michaelmatician’s music of the past and future 20 years:

    jeremyshingles-?!, what the fuck is michaelmatician’s music and why can’t anyone listen to it?
    Art-it was a big year and “Electric Avenue” just didn’t make it.
    Devildick-The only band that I listened to out of your post was VeeDee, really good,kind of like a garage Hawkwind. I’ve heard of the Guinea Worms but not heard them. I’ve never heard of the others. Thanks, I’ll check them out.

      I guess Im stuck on bootlegs this last few months….one in constant rotation (in the last week, anyways) is Magnet’s first show…with Mr Ugh himself on vox.

      Good list—plan on scoping some of this out

    Micheal Yonkers is good, at least the one on Sub Pop. Some assholes named The Sir Loin of Beef Boys or something like that put out a decent record too.
