Stan Getz & Bill Evans - Previously Unreleased Recordings

Verve [1973]

It's pretty much winter here now so it's time to bust out this stuff. Here we have two legends (and personal favorites) playing Jass together. These recording are from 1964.

Crown Roast - A Nose Has Many Jobs

Unclean [1994]

Nasty noise rock from Texas. Sounds like Dazzling Killmen and Born Against got thrown in a broken blender.

Pansy Division - Deflowered

Lookout [1994]

Sorry for the neglect. Just got back from playing some shows in the San Francisco area and now we are going to listen to Pansy Division.

PS. I wanted to post Undressed but I could not find a free digital copy. If anyone wants to share then please do.

El Paso Hot Button / Attractractive and Popular - Jungle Fever / Live From Hell

El Paso Hot Button / Attractive And Popular split
Little Mafia [2008]

Let me first say that I no longer have this release in it's physical form and finding information obtaining to it has been a pain (to say the least). I suppose this makes sense since this release was apparently a major flop and neither of these guys were ever much more than obscure. That being said, this album is AMAZING. The reason it got so little attention is because most people's heads are filled with applesauce or something.
El Paso Hot Button is a one man extravaganza of cock-splosive proportions. As with Mickey Reece's previous releases, this offering is a grove-filled sonic experiment with a little bit of noise and a lot of NASTINESS.
Attractive and Popular bring us that sex-drenched mid-2000's electro-sass with the sass turned up to 11.

The electric eels - God Says Fuck You

Homestead [1991]

Presented here is the second of many posthumous formal releases showcasing the incredible talent the was The electric eels. Formed in Cleveland in 1972, this bunch of proto-artpunk terrorists spent most of their time fighting their audiences and getting arrested for being drunk. Their shows included the essential instrumentation of running lawn mowers and booming sheet metal. I don't know why, but sometimes I think they sound like Some Velvet Sidewalk.
The electric eels are the best thing you heard about today and I love them.

Bantam Rooster - Fuck All Y'all

Sympathy for the Record Industry [2000]

These guys put out some albums before and after this but they don't really matter as much.
These guys played some real nasty garage punk.
The lyrical content in this record is beautiful... eloquent, even...
Half of my infatuation with this record is directly related to the album artwork. It's stark, balanced, simple and interesting.
