Music Notes February 2019

March 1, 2019 at 12:00 am (Uncategorized)

Much more music. 

1 The Bangles/The Three O’Clock/The Dream Syndicate/Rain Parade – 3 X 4

Here’s an idea. Four Paisley Underground bands each record songs by the others. Sound daft? It’s not. Quite lovely. Was never a big Three O’Clock fan, but their covers and their covered songs are great. (As do the other contributions) Great liner notes too.

2. Led Zeppelin – Led Zeppelin II

And so, my appreciation of Zeppelin grows. Will never be as big a fan as many (still prefer Plant’s solo work), but there are some pretty great songs here. Dig too, the bonus disc with earlier versions.

3. Cosey Fanni Tutti – “Tutti”

Hypnotic dance music. Never a fan of her best known project Throbbing Gristle, but this is a lot of fun.

4. The Long Ryders- Psychedelic Country Soul

I loved the Long Ryders back in the day. You can sample tracks from this at their site, and it sounds pretty amazing.

5. “Turn and Face the Strange – Occultist Alestair Crowley’s Influence on Popular Music” 

Flawed intro to Crowley’s influence – “Sympathy for the Devil” isn’t on Their Satanic Majesties Request, but maybe worth a look.

6. The Liminanas – I’ve Got Trouble in mind Volume 2

If Serge Gainsberg managed the Velvets instead of Andy Warhol. B-sides and rarities

7. Loureedia

I guess this is old, but it’s new to me – a Spider named for the Velvets singer. 

8. Ann Summa – The Beautiful & The Damned: Punk Photographs

I’m a sucker for this sort of this. Nice collection of LA punk pix.

9. Jordan – Defying Gravity

Forthcoimng. I just saw this note. I’m also a sucker for punk autobiographies.

10. CEOL  Benefit. If you’re in Toronto March 1, you might consider checking out this benefit for a music program in Regent Park. Great bands including the very wonderful Christian D and the Sinners. 


Until next time.
