Chris Brown is a San Francisco based composer who stands firmly in the tradition of West Coast innovators like Terry Riley and James Tenney. Rogue Wave, his first CD in almost a decade, is one of his best —a startling retrospective spanning over twenty years of activity. Six dynamic pieces featuring a wide range of sound sources and compositional styles, from angelic choirs of electronically altered pianos, to hardcore hip-hop transmissions and polyphonic noise symphonies. This important new release places Brown at the forefront of new electronic composition, and finally sheds long overdue light on an important innovator whose work has been unjustly marginalized for years.

HERR | The Winter Of Constantinople

Steeped in tragedy and legionary heroism, this musical odyssey recreates the penultimate 1453 siege of the Byzantine capital beside the shimmering waters of the Bosphorus. A neo-classical cocktail of atmospheric keyboards, cello and pounding drums frolic alongside militaristic anthems about European imperium, hooliganism as modern warfare, vanquished heroes, Turkish hordes, architectural majesty and defiant optimism. The diverse lyrical styles and sheer breadth of instrumentation on this release make it one of the most original and captivating albums of the last few years.

Pappawas1975 - 11-11-2005 at 09:23

Ive just noticed that by including the album covers and blurbs that I must come across as a proper nerd...Apologies...

Puptent - 11-11-2005 at 10:53

Nah, keep the descriptions coming. I like to read that kind of stuff and I'm a record nerd myself. That first album is on Tzadik, I guess?

Gonna pick up some new albums tomorrow, last week I bought 'Where's Brooklyn?' by Don Cherry.

Pappawas1975 - 11-11-2005 at 17:25

Yeah, its on Tzadik....Loads of great stuff on that label, but alot of crap too.....Re Don Cherry, the only album I have by him is with John Coltrane, called "The Avant Garde"....Fucking good though....

BBP - 11-11-2005 at 19:04

... I think I left out my Saint-Saens box...
Has all 5 symphonies (2 unpublished ones), all 5 piano concertos, three violin concertos and several orchestral pieces (like my fave, Africa).

"Sanhedrin" is indeed excellent as well. There are so many Masada albums out there that some of it can sound all the same, but this one does sound great, kinda laid-back even.

Pappawas1975 - 10-12-2005 at 22:27

I agree....The trick is to not listen to any Masada project for a long while, then stick one on....Keep meaning to pick up Sanhedrin, but its pricey....Ive heard the new Electric Masada release is great also.....

Pappawas1975 - 10-12-2005 at 22:36



OK, OK, I know its a bootleg! But it was very reasonably priced and I may well be dead before the ZFT get round to putting anything new out.......

BBP - 10-12-2005 at 23:14

Looks good... How's the sound?

Pappawas1975 - 10-12-2005 at 23:24

Its in the mail, havent received it yet, but judging by the internet broadcast of it on killuglyradio.com, its pretty good....

BBP - 10-12-2005 at 23:30

They have it online? Great!

Pappawas1975 - 10-12-2005 at 23:30

Well, not exactly! E-bay anyway....

BBP - 10-12-2005 at 23:32

One of them 30sec samples then...? I stopped doing bootlegs after I got one that sounded like a forest-fire. It was called Trick Or Treat.

Pappawas1975 - 10-12-2005 at 23:36

If I hadnt heard this before, I wouldnt have bought it, Ive been burnt by bootlegs since Beat The Boots. Some of those were great, and other titles in that series were just a waste of time and money.....The version of Resolver/Brutality I heard featured the tracks in their entirity...

BBP - 10-12-2005 at 23:44

A friend of mine has Beat the Boots... It's great to know people who have a more advanced collection...
Either way, I don't buy bootlegs anymore, but I do get 'em for free sometimes... Once I got these neat rehearsal-tapes on CD...

Pappawas1975 - 10-12-2005 at 23:51

Yeah, sometimes they are a winner, and other not.....Thats the risk you take I guess....Golden Rule? - Try before you buy! ( if you can )...

BBP - 10-12-2005 at 23:59

That's always a golden rule, well, for CD's anyway. Though I never listen to them in the store. Which resulted in me buying a Lisa Loeb-album.

Pappawas1975 - 11-12-2005 at 00:01

I would conclude that that particular purchase was a mistake?

BBP - 11-12-2005 at 00:06

Yeah I wondered what she sounds like... an example of overenthusiastic Dweezil-fanhood (which has magically cured in the past three months).
I really began to regret that purchase (Firecracker) when I opened the CD-box and saw how pink it was...
Either way I gave it to my mother. Our taste in music hardly corresponds, but she didn't like it either.

Pappawas1975 - 11-12-2005 at 00:09

She had a big hit over here, cant remember the song, You Say or something, but just by that song I could tell that I wouldnt be able to dig her albums.....Good for what it was, just not my bag, yknow?

BBP - 11-12-2005 at 00:17

I Do. It was on Firecracker, the only number 1 hit in the States ever by an unsigned artist. It also appeared on an episode of Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

It's worth every penny, though.. the packaging is great, and the music too.

I grabbed Resolver + Brutality from the Zappateers tracker in lossless FLAC format. Why pay for bootlegs in 2005 when you can get the same stuff for free. well, I guess silver discs and printed artwork are pretty cool, though.

Frank Zappa played the original version of Handsome Cabin Boy on USA Radio. Sung to ease the back-breaking work and fill up the long lonely nights with rowdy and profane entertainment. The booklet contains all the liner notes from the original mono LP which covers the history of the songs and the singers. Frank said (see notes - The Lost Episodes): 'When everyone else was listening to Cream I was listening to A. L. Loyd & Ewan MacColl. These were two old guys who used to record together, trying to replicate the original instrumentation of sea shanties. Some of the words were absolutely unbelieveable...I loaned the LP to Beefheart and he probably still has it'. Sonically cleaned and diigitally remastered

My favourite track has to be the Barbershop quartet... I didn't really like the first few dancy sing-alongable tracks, and the last few tracks were too much for me as well... Aren't they supposed to be the missing link between Zappa and Primus?

Hope it gets better with listening more and more to it...

Pappawas1975 - 11-3-2006 at 19:54

It will grow on you BB, just like their other 80s records, at first I thought " What is this all about?", but I got there in the end. Then again, I am a drummer, and Bill Bruford is on them, so it maybe was easier to dig quicker....!!!!

aquagoat - 15-3-2006 at 09:46

I agree with Gojira, this album will grow on you but not as much as Red or Lars tongue, there's always that kind of 80's pop tinge that's a bit boring. Does Discipline sound the same ? I've always wanted to buy it but never dared to cause of the period during which it was released.

For what it's worth, I like Discipline a lot better. It does have the same '80s production qualities' (you know, lots of that gated reverb 'Phil Collins' snare sound), but the tunes are a lot less poppier and more challenging.

aquagoat - 15-3-2006 at 20:21

Thanks for the short review, puptent, I think I'm gonna get it soon.

aquagoat - 16-3-2006 at 08:54

Hey BBP, if you're interested in improving your bass skills, I'v got scores of KC's "Three of a perfect pair". The bass part is not very difficult but the guitar parts are, its good for you hand dexterity. Give me a sign if you're interested. I've also got scores for "Vrooom", if any KC fan wants to have a look at it.:-)

Puptent - 16-3-2006 at 11:28

I spent a lot of time practicing the crosspicking patterns in "Fracture" (from the Starless and Bible Black album), that stuff is pretty tough as well, but a great workout for your right hand.

Yes, if you practice it seriously you can only progress. I usually use the beginning of "Three of..." as a warm up exercise. It's good for your right hand precision and left hand dexterity.

No, it's OK to listen to that, it's not really my cup of tea but he does well. It's more something that parents would listen to rather than 22 (soon 23) year old youngsters such as you.:D But I must admit that everytime I hear "Une belle histoire" it remains stuck into my head for days. It's supposed to be on the record you bought, track 5.

I like Moroccan music too, a former girlfriend (haaa Naïma, I miss you :crying:) made me listen to cool traditional music like for example: Abdelsam Cherkaoui (oud player), gnawa music etc...that's very good. Thanx to that I learned some scales with quarter tones they use in their music and apply them to the guitar.

The last non Zappa album I bought was "Breakfast For Dinosaurs" by the Fowler Brothers. I can't say I like it that much. Bruce Fowler's stuff is interesting, but there's too much of that LA sound about the album as a whole and I really don't like the female vocalist. If anybody has any of their other stuff that they can recommend, let me know.

BTW, Gojira1975 is definitely right about amnesia Vivace and that bass line quoted from Holst's Planets on the Aboslutely Free album, not the song.

BBP - 3-4-2006 at 10:26

Just bought DAAU - Domestic Wildlife, after I've seen DAAU live. Was a great concert, though they don't interact much with the audience. Even got a signature of the violinist Buni Lenski. Great album, too. Couldn't find any usable pics of the album online (except on http://www.daau.com), shame.
Tracks:
1 Lounja la gazelle
2 Domestic Wildlife
3 Rabbit eye movement
4 Dispositioning system
5 Pedanterie
6 Wish you were hit
7 Tropic of cancer
8 Aufhören
9 Highway tiger
10 Nowhere Beach
11 Lost Soles *
( on DAAU's 2nd album there's a track called Lost Souls, on their 3rd there's one called "More Lost Souls", on their 4th is "Even more lost souls")

I havent heard it yet, as I pre-ordered it, and it shipped today, as the UK release is Monday. It is 29 minutes long, with four tracks. I can however thoroughly recommend the self titled debut and the Heartache Ep.

I didn't know they had gotten together again, never really been a Frost fan though even if I possess To Mega Therion as any good metal freak should (I noly bought it a few months ago cause it cost 4€ :D). I'm gonna check that new record out.

Pappawas1975 - 11-5-2006 at 21:45

Absolute fucking legends man. Check out Into The Pandemonium too, a truly ground breaking metal album, absolutely timeless.....

Just pre-ordered





Zorn’s newest project is a hardcore song cycle scored for voice, bass and drums. This powerful rock unit features three of his most illustrious, longtime cohorts who have worked together in bands such as Naked City, Fantomas, Mr. Bungle and Electric Masada and are keenly in tune with Zorn’s language and aesthetic. Musicians are always at their best in Zorn projects and Moonchild is no exception. You have never heard these players as up front, on the edge or as inspired as they are here, raging through eleven pieces of terrifying intensity. Drawing on preverbal language and the primal power of rock music, this is Torture Garden with an alchemical twist—spontaneous, complex and evocative. Eleven new Zorn compositions executed with a ritualistic passion that will take your breath away.


Personnel:
Joey Baron: Drums
Mike Patton: Voice
Trvor Dunn: Bass

That Death angel record is my favourite, I remember I kept listening to it when it was released, I simply couldn't stop listening to that thing.

Now I'm looking for "History of a time to come" and "Dreamweaver" by Sabbat. I remember they were quite trendy in the early 90's (in france, at least), but for some reason I didn't buy them. I'm getting more and more interested into old things like that, bands like Vio-lence, Mekong delta, Coroner and suchlike.

Pappawas1975 - 14-5-2006 at 10:13

I was exactly the same ! Act III rocked my teenage world for a good while too! We saw them on that tour also, with Forbidden at the Hammersmith Odeon, fucking great show.....I love Frlic Through The Park too, its kind of a tie between the two for me....
As for Sabbat albums, Ive been trying to them on cd also, for a while now, especially Dreamweaver. If you find them anywhere, let me know!Great band...

Was goona post about that actually! No, it isnt worth buying it again, just for that track. Its a cover ( forget who by ) and its not that good, especailly compared to the rest of the album....Unless its been remeastered since its original release, I wouldnt bother buying it again just for the extra track...

Hello Skinny is by The Residents, there's a Hello Skinny cover on Videoplasty (Primus video from 1998, has live performances, music videos, backstage footage etc. Thought it was a bit boring, Claypools singing is unintelligible, the sound quality of it is rather poor. Plus he interrupts Too Many Puppies for it)

Yes, apparently they are quite a well known musical family. Looking forward to receiving this Ligeti album, what Ive heard sounds great.
As for the ND album aqua, yes, havent heard that in a while and one of the tunes popped into my head again recently, hence the purchase! I wasnt too into it when it came out, as I saw it as a bit of a wagon jumping sell out, what with using Scott Burns and Morrisound and all, but I did enjoy the album itself.
Am also tempted to buy Utopia Banished also, but anything after that I feel ND were / are treading water. I heard a track of their last album, and I did enjoy it, but felt that it was really nothing new, and it didnt compel to investigate further into their post - Utopia catalogue.

Pappawas1975 - 1-7-2006 at 15:09

What I heard of Automatic seemed ok, but not enough to make me purchase it. I got Confessions and Shampoo Horn through Music For Nations, when my old band were on the label too. They let us raid their Cd cupboards, so naturally I picked up Dweezil stuff ( and several copies of CPIII, as they didnt have any other FZ titles left after losing the UK distribution rights to Ryko ).....I was totally dissapointed. Shampoo Horn is utterly abysmal.

I got Shampoo Horn from the local library once, years ago. Suffice to say I never bothered to buy it.

BBP - 1-7-2006 at 19:21

Well... I got 4 DZs now, vinyl Havin' A Bad Day, vinyl My Guitar Wants To Kill Your Mama, for which I had to travel 8 hours in order to get it, Automatic and Confessions.
Bad Day is kinda cute but not very interesting, Guitar is horrible, Automatic is better but has covers from Bizet that simply sound awful. Confessions after hearing it twice I think is funny and has some very nice bits. But musically, well, he's not his dad. His compositions have the tendency to get boring.

aquagoat - 1-7-2006 at 19:28

Confessions are only funny pop songs, that's all, no great artistic pretensions. I don't think we should expect to hear dweezil try to continue his father's work. I wouldn't try if I was in his place.

[Edited on 1-7-2006 by aquabot]

BBP - 1-7-2006 at 19:33

He's done that with ZPZ I think... and pretty well too! Hope to see him doing that again.

aquagoat - 1-7-2006 at 19:35

He "only" played his father's work, did not compose anything like that, and I don't think he should.

BBP - 1-7-2006 at 19:38

Depends on whether or not you approach his soloing as "air sculptures". And I was sceptical about ZPZ myself, but the show sparkled in Amsterdam even without a good frontman.

aquagoat - 1-7-2006 at 19:50

Unfortunately I didn't see the Paris show but a friend of mine told me it was awesome, but I don't think he's got the necessary talent to compose the kind of music his father made, and I think he shouldn't try, cause I don't even see the interest, I think he should do something totally different, find his own way. And once in a while pay a tribute to his dad and spread the Zappa gospel with ZPZ.

Puptent - 1-7-2006 at 20:20

You've got to admire how he pulled off the ZPZ tour thing, it was way better than anyone could have suspected. I wouldn't have paid attention to any new Dweezil Zappa album if it weren't for his great playing on the tour.

Guess time will tell whether his own music is worthwhile. I'm waiting for a couple more reviews of his new solo album before I might buy it.

Like I said, usually these 'guitar hero' albums bore me quickly. Apparently one of his new tracks has him playing Van Halen's "Eruption" backwards. Now, that might be a nice technical exercise, but why bother to release that on on an album?

Didn't get Noiture either. But the rest from what I've heard sounds good! If that Inca Roads solo sounds half as good as the one he did in Brussels, it should be great!

Just received Merzbow Turmeric 4 cd set and Live In Geneva....both awaiting dissection...

BBP - 7-8-2006 at 18:10

How many Merzbow records do you have now I wonder?

Pappawas1975 - 8-8-2006 at 07:43

Now totalling at 46, which is really nothing seeing as there are upwards of 300 ( thats including his early vinyl and cassette releases though, even without them youre talking 270 at least ).
Oh, thats not including the small matter of the Merzbox, which is a 50 Cd box set, which, although often tempted, I simply cannot afford at £510!

Listened to the first ( orange ) disc of Turmeric yesterday though. Very intense, very enjoyable....

BBP - 8-8-2006 at 10:35

Guk... 300+ albums...
:shocked:

Have you considered buying Merzbox with more than 1? I did that once, with my sister. (Now I got RHCP Californication which is now half the price it was then. Eventually my sister didn't like it anymore and said I could have it, mind you at the full price so I had to pay her.) Could work out.

Pappawas1975 - 8-8-2006 at 16:19

Wouldnt want to share it! Plus the fact that nobody I know personally ( in real life, not online! ) likes Merzbow to shell out £250!! Nice idea though!


As for last album I bought ( well, pre-ordered ) - THE FOUR DISC OFFICIAL FZ AUDIO DOCUMENTARY.....FREAK OUT!!!

Not that much information on it, typical of the ZFT, but looks great nonetheless. I missed out on getting my name on FZ:OZ, so figured Id go for it on this bad boy.....

Pappawas1975 - 15-8-2006 at 13:47

Just got MERZBOW - Tamago. A sheer fluke, called this place in London up on the offchance, and they dawgawn had it......
This is a real find, limited to 350 copies and is as rare as fuck, so to get a new one relatively cheap is awesome. My copy is number 235 out of 350. Ive seen these sell on e-Bay for £50 upwards.

Havent managed to listen to it as yet though....

As a music fan, I say that the credit card is the ultimate tool to our hobby. It enables you to do and purchase so much more music, and as long as you are sensible with it, it rocks! Get one BB!
That said, as long as you have a bank account, you can use Paypal, thus enabling you to buy thru e-Bay and alot of online stores, so it aint all that bad. Ok, Barfko needs a CC, but think about it, if you only used the CC for ZFT and related releases, it wouldnt be too hard to keep up with it would it?

I've just "acquired" this record and I'm really impressed, it's simpler than To megatherion and Pandemonium but it has more impact, in my opinion, perhaps because of the sound that is really good.

It is a good album. Kinda sounds like a "prequel" to Pandemonium in a wierd way.....

Saw them last week in London and they were awesome.
Played mainly older stuff, with only a couple of tracks from Mono.

Got my phone smashed in the pit, but ended up with a better one through the insurance.

"Raided" the vinyl classical department of our local charity store, and found some niceties:
-Saint-Saëns complete work for cello and orchestra
-Villa-Lobos concert for guitar and orchestra + 2 preludes for guitar, and L. Bernsteinsymphonic dancesfrom West Side Story
-Webern: 5 Satze for string quartet op 5, Schoenberg piano pieces op 11, berg violin concert
-Secular and religious music from Middle Ages and Renaissance, some Josquin and Machaut
-Renaissance music, some Palestrina and Monteverdi

Nice to have some early music, which is hard to find, especially at an affordable price!

We don't have much positive experience with our insurance companies. Once, my bicycle was stolen out of the shed in the garden, which was unlocked at the time. The insurance wouldn't pay out because the shed wasn't attached to the house.
:pissed:

punknaynowned - 3-9-2006 at 11:52

Insurance is a scam with no kind of governmental oversight, at least here in the states. Here you have to have insurance to do just about anything: drive a car, get sick, sell anything, buy anything, hire people to help you if you've got a business. And then the payouts are skint even if you've paid top $ for years. Everybody in the business is only in it for themselves and their own retirement nest egg and will do whatever it takes to make their quota. Dog eat dog, darwinian escalation to the bottom of the barrel. Yet, the way people treat you if you don't have the correct insurance, even when yer sick is practically criminal. I swear I'm not sure which is worse: legal insurance companies or illegal 'protection' rackets.
oh, woops! last music I bought were the 2 disc versions of bowie's outside and earthling and funkadelic's hardcore jollies and live at the meadowbrook 1971. rounding out the catalogue. yepyepyep.

very exciting for me as if it is live an immediate gratification thing of a piece of music I've loved for over twenty years. To a hear new, even, right now, live version, for free, on the net, is fantastic. and then the two of them play a song about having some tea, growing old, just the two of them, 'feeling kinda sad'

Hey punk:

have you ever seen the episode of Family Guy with John Williams in it? You haven't? Ok, i'll tell you about it then...

Brian starts working as a director of porn flicks in LA. He becomes very successful very quickly and gets nominated for the porn film industry awards (the Woodies). One of the awards for the night is for best soundtrack for a film. The first four nominations are all stereotype sleazy smooth restaurant funk-jazz producers sitting in studio who all sound the same, and then there's the last guy: John Williams, who's in a suit with a 120 piece orchestra conducting a complex Star Wars style thing with trumpet fanfares and fast woodwind runs and all! God it's hilarious.

Now it's 5 DZs. GWWYK has, of all, the ugliest front cover (and a back that's worse), impossible sealing, and a disgusting love song with lyrics that would embarrass me if I had written them. On the brighter side, most compositions on it are pretty cool, apart from the first track (that love song. It begins with a high peep that ascends further, like Slow, Deep and Hard from Type-O-Negative). Peaches is nice, though the beginning sounded horrible. And the Inca Roads clipping is a bit cruel. Otherwise it's very enjoyable. DZ has learned not to spend the entire booklet on intensive Thank You messages. Furthermore he's sounding more like daddy, his compositions are definitely interesting. It's possibly his best album yet.

I totally agree with you on that, some record sleeves deserve something better than just a little 12x12 cm booklet.

this all looks awesome. I'd listen to all that over and over and over . . .

Pappawas1975 - 11-11-2006 at 20:42

Latest horde.....

ZORN / ELECTRIC MASADA - At The Mountains Of Madness

POSSESSED - Seven Churches

FEAR FACTORY - Soul Of A New Machine ( not quite as good as I remember it! )

BBP - 12-11-2006 at 14:32

Ah! Seven Churches! Nice!
Though I preferred Beyond the Gates to be honest (Tribulation kicks ass). It's still pretty good.

PS Punky: You can have Soon e MC anytime, some French rap, very boring.

BBP - 15-11-2006 at 18:38

Some more in the classical department:

Codex Faenza: Instrumental Music of the Early XVth Century By Ensemble Unicorn, Naxos label. The title is odd, since all music on it is 14th century. Among others, there's Machaut, Landini and Bologna on it.

Stravinsky: Divertimento; Ravel: Sonata for Violin and Piano; Prokovief: Sonata op 94a, Philips label.

And, my favourite:
Shostakovich: The Nose.
The opera after one of my favourite books. Since it sounds experimental (unlike most of the music Sh. has written), it never got as popular as Lady Macbeth (with the infamous rape scene), so it was rarely recorded. Even in the Shostakovich-year it's difficult to get your hands on The Nose. I found it by coincidence in a second-hand section of a popular music store.

scallopino - 17-11-2006 at 06:09

i saw a documentary the other day about Shosty and Prokofiev and the Stalinist state. Man they had it tough, to say the least.

BBP - 17-11-2006 at 20:58

Yup... Shost was walking on the brink of disaster occasionally whenever he'd composed something the State did not approve of (like Lady Macbeth or his 4th symphony.
The Soviet state was about the only government we know of that would actually censor music. Most censorship in music is limited to changing lyrics, but the Soviets (better put, Stalin) saw threat in tones. Chaikovsky's infamous Ouverture 1812 for instance has been partially recomposed because it contained the hymn of the Czar.

scallopino - 18-11-2006 at 03:43

Yeah. Part of the documentary talked about the music conservatories. Every now and then the "Minister for Music" and the music police would come around and all the students would have to get out their compositions for inspection. The music police would come to everyone with an eraser, pencil and scissors to "fix" their works and get rid of certain intervals and chords.

Pappawas1975 - 18-11-2006 at 12:29

ZAPPA - Trance Fusion ( fucking great album! )

MERZBOW / GENESIS P. ORRIDGE - A Perfect Pain

SLAYER - Hell Awaits ( had it for years, finally on cd )

GENESIS - Genesis Live

Pappawas1975 - 19-11-2006 at 00:31

Oh, and the new ISIS album, In The Absence Of Truth, which is MASSIVE....

BBP - 20-11-2006 at 20:34

Some recent purchases: a second-hand single from the theme song of Shaka Zulu, that unfortunately sounds a lot worse than the version used for the series. And:

Primus - They Can't All Be Zingers (more on that in Primus-section)

Saint-Saëns - Samson et Dalila, live edition (the seller actually warned me it didn't sound too fantastic, and that there was another version on offer. To which I replied I already had that one and it didn't sound too great)

Saint-Saëns - Orchestral works, among others 3rd symphony, Rouet d'Omphale and Danse Macabre. I collect different versions from Danse Macabre.

aquagoat - 19-12-2006 at 09:06

they're great, in my opinion.

Absence is very noisy and cold. It reminds me of Godflesh but in a rap format.
From filthy tongue of gods and griots is a bit different, it's calmer and a bit brighter than Absence but remains quite different from you usual hiphop band.

very good albums, I recommend buying Absence first, I think you won't regret it.

[Edited on 24-12-06 by BBP]

scallopino - 27-12-2006 at 13:09

yeah How Could I Be Such A Fool sounds amazing on the original Freak Out. In fact, out of all the albums i reckon Freak Out sounds the best production wise. I suppose it's because he got a whole lot of money to do that one didn't he?

BBP - 27-12-2006 at 16:46

I wouldn't know that... sonically my favourites are the digital ones, especially CP3. Like he knew it was going to be his last chance to do it properly.

Somehow the earlier FZ albums (like FO and Absolutely Free) all sound like they came out of a can to me...

Pappawas1975 - 4-1-2007 at 11:36

My 4 cd MOFO finally arrived yesterday, two weeks in the mail and £10 Custons charge later.....Great though, a true "making of" for sure........As for the packaging, I had no trouble getting the discs out at all......

BBP - 4-1-2007 at 13:41

That's great! How is it?

Pappawas1975 - 6-1-2007 at 11:10

Its really wonderful actually! It truly is an "audio documentary", without wanting to sound tacky. It seems to make Freak Out! totally complete. I do feel kinda miffed buying the little MOFO as well as the 4cd, cos I was under the impression the 2 cd contained stuff not on the 4 cd, and vice versa.....Ho Hum. I wouldve no doubt ended up buying it anyway!

Big MOFO is worth getting though. Disc 3 is maybe the highlight, lotsa unreleased things going on there. The basic tracks version of the tunes are great too tough, as it enables the listener to really "get inside" the tracks, if that makes sense? Even the interview stuff is good. Its like they trawled the vault for any FO! related stuff and through it on.

TOTALLY RECOMMENDED.

BBP - 4-7-2007 at 08:43

Yeah it's pretty good!
They had a Rush album second-hand elsewhere (actually they had 2, but I have Moving Pictures) and didn't buy it because it was an 80s album. How bad was that decision?

aquagoat - 5-7-2007 at 07:43

I absolutely can't tell since I don't know much about Rush, Gojira would help you but we don't see him around much lately. I know some of their '80s records are good but I don't know which ones.

BBP - 5-7-2007 at 20:05

Goj's still on the Zappa.com forum occasionally... he's probably too busy now to come here often. Shame how this place is running empty.:-(

punknaynowned - 8-7-2007 at 06:51

Agreed.
I saw Rush in '85. Blue Oyster Cult opened for them!!
It was the Power Windows tour. Dunno whatever happened to the tshirt I had. Couldn't tell ya if the album was any good. Only ever listened to the early stuff thru Farewell to Kings, Moving Pictures, Exit Stage Left. Loved that stuff back then. Haven't listened to any of it in 20 years. I liked Peart's lyrics a lot, the musicianship was always superb, never did like Lee's singing style.
guess I'm not much help. what album was it you saw?

BBP - 9-7-2007 at 19:17

Hmmm... checking Wikipedia...
A can't recall the title, only vague details of the cover, and the year I thought was 1986. The closest match to all this was Presto. But I could swear it was a dragon on the cover.

aquagoat - 10-7-2007 at 08:33

the only Rush album I know with a dragon on the cover is this:


BBP - 10-7-2007 at 09:39

It was definitely black & white... Maybe I love dragons too much, I start to see them everywhere... (pictures soon)

aquagoat - 10-7-2007 at 19:21

if it's black and white it's either Presto:

or Permanent waves:

both are from the 80's

BBP - 11-7-2007 at 14:35

Probably Presto...

aquagoat - 11-7-2007 at 18:37

as much as I can remember Presto is a good album, not essential but you wouldn't waste your money if you bought it.

BBP - 12-7-2007 at 14:28

At 3 euros probably not! :)

BBP - 14-7-2007 at 14:36

At the same price I got Manowar - Fighting the World and Faith No More: King for a day, fool for a lifetime.

aquagoat - 15-7-2007 at 12:12

not my favourite FNM album, but still very good. As for manowar, I've never listened to any of their albums, I only saw two live video extracts à while ago, and it was very very funny, especially the bass player.

BBP - 15-7-2007 at 16:44

My boyfriend likes them very much, but I don't know them at all, so...

Today DED and I went to a flea market where somebody put a large box filled with records for free! Got some Berlioz, some more stuff... not sure what...

King For... is one of my favourite FNM albums, I really enjoy it. As for Manowar, Im sure Ive had this conversation elsewhere with one of you ( or, indeed, both of you! )....I think they are silly in their interviews and the way they dress, but they have made some good records, and Fighting The World is great IMO.....I played it today actually!

The last albums I bought were -

JOHN ZORN / MASADA STRING TRIO - Azazel : Book Of Angels Volume 2

JOHN ZORN - Madness, Love And Mysticism

FRANK ZAPPA - The Dub Room Special

I apologise for that, children limit you ronline time! As for Rush, I LOVE their 80s / tackier stuff, but I do realise its a personal thing. My best advice would be to just give it a try. I would recommend Hold Your Fire, Grace Under Pressure for starters, and maybe Presto after youve gotten in a little further, as it is different to the others.....Great musicianship if anything, on all the 80s albums!!!

punknaynowned - 17-10-2007 at 02:48

the "token of my extreme", the 'new' recording
is 2:30 long and full of fart noises:puzzled:

gratuitously stupid to me.

stevies spanking is artificially inflated

the sound is good overall. crisp versions of dog breath/uncle meat. I love it anyway.

a special stinkfoot. Frank's voice is part of the time fed thru some effects pedal that makes the output sound like square waves, or there is extra crunchy reverb directly on his voice.

easy meat starts out the same and gets really great with the solo, especially with the synth lead up and 'outro' that goes on for awhile. Nice.

an extra short montana as told elsewhere, but then

the rest of the songs are extra long. the last four songs take up 37 minutes!!!!

the solo here in Inca Roads is extra special too and is closer to how Dweezil does Frank . . .

Room Service might be my favorite, just because it acts like it's not part of the regularly scheduled events

cosmik debris has a nice solo, real nice

and florentine pogen is the best available version. I prefer it to the one on One Size Fits All.

On a scale of one to ten, and understand this is a zappa scale (Nothing is gonna be less than 5 and some may get more than 10 . . .)
I'd give it a 6.5.

BBP - 17-10-2007 at 09:04

Is that the ZPZ DVD? Doesn't sound like it's worth the price they charge... I'll wait till it goes down. Like on the Imaginary Diseases which I found at half-price already.

My latest musical purchases were 2 for my collection of Danse Macabre renditions. I should keep my classical music list more up to date, but now it's on the wrong PC.

punknaynowned - 17-10-2007 at 10:45

oh no, that's my more-real review for the dub room special cd following from the posts above it,

the zpz dvd I am very excited for. I expect them to see it when I go see them again in November. Of course it means I have to get the dvd player fixed . . .

technically the lastest cd's I purchased




sorry they're so big and thanx fer the help

How's Babylon? Better than Babylon Zoo?

aquagoat - 19-10-2007 at 14:36

Skindred's Babylon album is a very good album, not revolutionary but very good. It's a mix of Raggamuffin and metal with a lil' bit of pop and punk. If you already no the singer's former band: Dub war, Skindred is a better abd tougher version of it. According to a friend who 's a rock journalist, their second album, that will be released on October 29th, is even better than Babylon, so if you want to try it, you'd better buy their second disc: Roots rock riot.

it used to be here that if you wanted to know the air temperature you would use the telephone and phone up the bank . . .
they had a special number that would give an automated voice that would say the time and the temperature. . .

I stopped one day when I heard myself say out loud
"I'm gonna call up the bank and see what temp it is"

call up?

call up a bank?

and see? no, actually, hear

see the temperature? no, hear what the voice says the indicator shows

I'm listening to a marathon zappa set tonight.
I went thru the collection of all the official releases and selected one song from each cd, so lather gets 3 songs, guitar gets 2 etc. beat the boots was not included and I forgot 200 motels. I've never owned a francesco zappa cd so that's not on there and I also threw an ensemble modern version of Night School on there from their greggory peccary release. Got that? The whole thing is over nine and one-half hours long. but all the releases are included except for the exceptions above and I made a conscious effort to choose songs I don't normally seek out or hear very often.
It's been great!!!
np: Rat Tomago, Shiek Yerbouti,

the last album I got was the cd/dvd version of david Bowie's Young Americans: classic. I'm a huge db fan. it's just how it is.

BBP - 3-3-2008 at 15:59

That's an amazing achievement there punk! I'm a recent Bowie fan, since picking up Hunky Dory. The recurring image of Ziggy Stardust put me off for a long time.

punknaynowned - 6-3-2008 at 21:01

yeah, scallop I know what you mean. But it's just a persona, he's had a number of them over the years,
Hunky Dory remains a big favorite, so does Aladdin Sane. Live and Stages are interesting when compared with one another , being 4 years apart chronologically, or less, and rather different music from both, tho even some of the same songs performed.
If you're more interested in the earlier period, around Hunky Dory, try the 3-disc version of Bowie at the Beeb: live recordings for BBC, '67-'73, plus the third disc is a concert for the BBC in 2000 which is cool.
Most of my favorites of his, by now are bootlegs or rarer official releases. I have a couple of cd comps that I put together that I listen to with some frequency :)

scallopino - 7-3-2008 at 11:10

I would say that the song 'Heroes' has one of all time favourite vocal performances. Some other favourites are Prince's "The Beautiful Ones" (must be heard to be believed) and Etta James' "At Last".

punknaynowned - 14-3-2008 at 18:10

The beautiful Ones, what record is that on?

scallopino - 15-3-2008 at 07:30

Purple Rain. It's also worth getting for Darling Nikki, the song that so upset Ms Gore and friends that they started the PMRC.

punknaynowned - 15-3-2008 at 08:58

I recently went mad at Amazon and bought 4 CDs:

1) Out There - Eric Dolphy
2) Out To Lunch - Eric Dolphy

It was about time I got some Eric Dolphy albums. The last track on Out To lunch, Straight Up And Down, is what inspired the Memorial Barbecue I think.

3) 3 Hours Past Midnight - Johnny Guitar Watson

As far as I can make out this is a compilation of his early singles. So, I finally got around to hearing one of FZ's early guitar influences.

4) The Blues And The Abstract Truth - Oliver Nelson

I got this because it had Stolen Moments on it, one of FZ's desert island choices.

punknaynowned - 4-5-2008 at 22:38

I have those two Dolphy records!

and I have a digital copy of Frank's copy of "Three Hours Past Midnight" broadcast over the radio in 1968 :roll:

Led Zeppelin: III & Physical Graffiti

I've been buying these mainly to have them on CD and they've been going real cheap. Not that I had them on vinyl, I used to, but they got sold a long time ago. I still like most of their stuff.

Roger Waters: Radio KAOS

I only had this on cassette. It's my favourite of his albums.

George Duke: Face The Music

I think I may still have "I Love The Blues She Heard My Cry" on vinyl, but I thought it was about time I got something on CD. Some of it's not bad, but some of it is just a bit too sweet for my taste.

punknaynowned - 18-6-2008 at 03:54

cool polyd!
I used to have those too a long time ago. Still like 'em, I haven't listened to LZ III in . . . it must be 20 years! I only heard Radio KAOS a few times back when it came out. It'd probably be good again, interesting insight perhaps in the situation here in the states. Don't think I've ever heard a whole Duke record all the way thru. Which is surprising as I think he's great on all the z records and there are a number of Dupree's Paradise type improv's I've heard that always knock me out. Just never have pursued it.
I got a bunch of things the other day:
Stan Getz/Charlie Byrd: Jazz Samba
The Replacements first ep on cd STINK "Kids Don't Follow" Plus Seven
The Clash's Sandanista! on a newer remaster
and two from the Bonzo Dog Band: Keynsham and the Doughnut in Granny's Greenhouse:freak:

I guess Zappa's really made me spoilt! :)

punknaynowned - 18-6-2008 at 19:01

III had a rotating disk with a bunch of individual odd items and images all over a white background, with the letters Led Zeppelin and three puffy roman I's. On the record you turn the dial and different images will appear in the holes cut in the front face of it. . . .


can I hotlink to a page here?
the ones with the kids is Houses of the Holy.
I listened to way too much Led Zep in highschool. They taught me a lot about blues music. "Led Zeppelin, the gateway-drug:lol:

I understand BB after getting into Zappa, Zeppelin can seem almost simple by comparison. But even I know that Zeppelin's greatness lies in the size of it. If you wanted to hear rock-n-roll, they gave an avalanche. For the 'Let the Sunshine In' crowd [:lol:], they gave a supernova. If you want a little fire, they gave volcanic eruptions of thunderous power. And so on.
Think BIG, CRUSHING.:lol:

Now something like Filthy Habits, Yo Mama or even Torture can have that kind of effect and done like nobody but Zappa. But I like Treacherous Cretins as well as any of Zeppelin's more airy, ethereal things. In The Light on Physical Graffiti is really nice. I just remembered I have much of a 9 cd set of Led Zep outtakes, live things and rehearsals. A big set. So this moment I listen to a 9 minute demo of Jimmy Page on acoustic guitar with Robert singing "That's The Way" from III. It must be outside because you can hear the effect of the wind on the microphone, there's a dog barking. Always liked that song. I listened to this record a lot in my freshman year of college . . .

I think you're right. And it's worse if you get into FZ early, like in high school, right when everybody's getting into music. And instead of having common musical interests with your friends like normal, you see what they listen to as extremely lame and boring in comparison.

BBP - 20-6-2008 at 08:24

I suffered that even before I listened to Zappa, with my Mozart, Beethoven and DAAU.
God thing: DAAU is still around and even stronger, Mozart and Beethoven will always be respected. But where's Peter Andre now? Korn? Limp Bizkit? SpiceGirls? Nothing but nostalgia reunions.

Whatever contrasts I draw between Zappa's music and the rest, I still find much of Led Zeppelin's music a cut above.

punknaynowned - 20-6-2008 at 13:02

Jimmy Page's production values [for once as far as producers go] did an unparalelled job and made their sound the benchmark for rock in the '70's (and a lot of the '80's too if you think about it). He built that sound from the arrangements to the tape mixes to the eq's and the distortion pedals. On a level with zappa I'd say in defining his own sound. That's why if you introduce it to someone who's never heard it they can react with quite a shock!

I agree. Led Zep was the first band/artist that I really got into. The first album I ever bought was the soundtrack to the Song Remains The Same.

They were really a band of absolute motherfuckers of their instruments. They were all brilliant, and real dynamo performers live (except for John Paul Jones, but he stilled played good). They also had a huge range, from the bone crunching blues based riffs (like Heartbreaker), to real authentic blues, to really beautiful folk music.

A couple of things that turn me off them though are Plant's often orgiastic vocals and the long and totally self-indulgent guitar and drum solos. Actually the drum solos were what I first listened to LZ for because it was straight after I started learning drums.

I remember reading an interview with Jimmy that was done in the mid seventies with a guitar magazine. The interviewer kept asking him what guitars and amps he was using on different songs to get the unique sounds. Almost every single time the reply was: "Just the same amp and the same Les Paul. I just experimented with the mic positions." He really made the most of everything and I think he was like FZ in how meticulous he was in the studio about sound.

Aqua, you must have the world's best collection of excellent album covers. Or maybe they just look cool as pictures on here.

BBP - 23-6-2008 at 14:10

I don't know many people who'd admit they have a 2 Unlimited CD... ;) You must've raided the local CD-store!

aquagoat - 23-6-2008 at 18:17

it's actually a Pin-up went down cd, it has nothing to do with: " nono, nono nono, there's no limits", it's actually a duet by some friends of mine who play a "metal, disco and other things" mix.

about the covers, I must admit I sometimes buy an album because I like the cover a lot, hoping the music will be as good as the picture.

BBP - 23-6-2008 at 20:16

Me too... I'll admit that was the case with Panzer Division Marduk. And I bought a Gojira album for the band name. And a Dog Fashion Disco album for a review.

Fortunately I regret neither.

aquagoat - 2-7-2008 at 19:09

Panzer division is a cool album full of energy, really like it, Gojira's albums are great too, especially The link.

punknaynowned - 2-7-2008 at 20:17

Not a clue what they sound like at all.

Well I've listened to them both now. First: the Go! Team. The Go Team are nearly the most American sounding British band i've ever heard. Actually, there more of a collective than a band. The music is a mixture of samples from Sonic Youth, old school horn lines and the school yard chants of extremely hip black american youngsters, along with thinly produced and massively compressed drums (similar to the Flaming Lips drum sound), and feel-good melodies sound like 60s movie themes.

Husker Du should be spelt with little double dots on the u's. I don't know what the technical name is. This is (I think) their second or third album and was released in 1985. It is extremely raw and abrasive and fast. But the songs have really wacked structures and excellent melodies. It's the kind of thing where you have no idea what the guy is singing but you sing along anyway. And the guitar playing is something else.

BBP - 24-7-2008 at 13:11

Alt + 129. ü. I presume it's an Umlaut, what it does is change the sound of a vowel. If you for whatever reason don't use Umlauts on the vowels, it's common practice to write an E behind the vowel, as in Goethe.

scallopino - 25-7-2008 at 05:52

Thank yoü Bonny!
Yeah...it's pronounced Hoosker Doo (as in 'who').

BBP - 25-7-2008 at 07:01

Actually U with umlaut becomes an Uuuuu sound, and I'm not aware of such a sound in English. German regular U sounds like OO.

Flu, due, June, tune.

BBP - 4-9-2008 at 11:48

No, that's a U with a y-sound before it.
Found an example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnzEi8L87NI (with subtitles) When Ronald talks about his childhood soft toy, he says pluche.

BBP - 6-9-2008 at 17:49

His timing is a bit awkward, but I like his jokes! One of my top faves was when he was going on and on about the time he joined a fitness centre and did all those silly exercises. Like moving on a rowing machine.

"But what if you dream you're on a rowing machine? And then you wake up... and in reality you are a galley slave. And as you're being whipped by the master, you say to your neighbor: "You know I had the weirdest dream... I dreamt I had to pay contribution so I could row...".

I thought about this and in this case the dy part is the j not the u, so it does qualify. Prune is another one. Prune in June.

polydigm - 9-9-2008 at 23:54

Actually, the more I think about it, the ju in June is not dyu like it is in dune. The ju in June is pronounced like Jew. A lot of people pronounce dune like june because pronouncing dune correctly sounds a bit posh. Dew is another one that a lot of people pronounce like jew because dyew sounds too posh. The j in June should be pronounced like the soft g in edge, there's no y sound involved.

scallopino - 10-9-2008 at 11:50

And it depends what kind of English your talking about. Americans would say Joon for June, doon for dune and doo for dew.

BBP - 10-9-2008 at 16:01

And Joon would be different from June how?

Exactly what I was wondering.

scallopino - 11-9-2008 at 11:19

Well it's spelt une but pronounced oon. 'Une' is ambiguous because dune is spelt like June but pronounced differently in correct British English, but in America all of those are pronounce the same (like oon).

punknaynowned - 11-9-2008 at 16:32

you mean to tell me that all my life I've pronounced 'dune' wrong?

I thought it was a genuine Danish (i think) word or phrase that they heard from somewhere. Do you know Bonny (and I know that Danish isn't the same as Dutch...)?

I think the first link doesn't work because the forum engine isn't coping with the %20 characters, that is an example of special escape codes that are used on the internet to get certain characters through that aren't otherwise excepted, in this case %20 is the space character. These codes work alright in most browsers so if you cut and paste that link into a browser it does work.

The second link has variables which are the data that comes after the question mark. The previous zappa forum doesn't handle question marks either. As well as that problem you've included the link for the search not the link for the eventual picture you chose.

BBP - 25-11-2008 at 15:07

The second one doesn't work because it doesn't have an image extension. It's a regular page rather than an image.

Well, no one can say I haven't tried. This is my third attempt to get into Tool. Got Undertow when it came out, didn't like it, traded it in, got Aenima a few years ago, didn't like it, traded it in... maybe this one will stick, who knows. It was used and cheap, so no great loss if I fail once again. Why do I keep trying? Because I know there's something going on there, and I feel like I just haven't gotten it yet. Too metal for me perhaps, who knows...

St Nicholas is Sept 6th, and most people here celebrate that on St Nicholas Eve. You remember, with the Black Peter you once saw in The Netherlands. St Nick is celebrated with seasonal candy and dishes, gifts, surprise gifts (wrapped in a silly way), writing verse for each other, and placing your shoe in front of the fireplace (perhaps with a drawing or a carrot in it) so you get some little present in it the next morning. It was exported to the US by immigrants, who made St Nick a lot fatter, gave him a stupid laugh and a lot of reindeers, and substituded shoes with socks, presumably for hygiene reasons.

It's a great album cover once more. Say Aqua, how many CD's are in your collection do you think? It must be quite a big one by now.

aquagoat - 6-1-2009 at 18:50

well, I don't really know cause a big part of it is still at my parents' house (630 km away from where I live now) but there must be around 1200 cd's in my collection now.

BBP - 6-1-2009 at 19:18

:shocked: Must be terrible to have your collection split in such a way... I'm even annoyed by some of my records in another room!
What's in your collection? Aside from piles of metal?

aquagoat - 6-1-2009 at 19:45

dub, reggae, jazz, funk, classical stuff, hip-hop, trip-hop, progressive rock, contemporary stuff, brazilian music, afrobeat, etc, etc...
Yes, it's terrible having my collection split like that, but when I moved to live with my girlfriend I also had to leave most of my guitars and recording material, actually, I only arrived in that new town with all my clothes, one guitar and 10 cd's.:-( But i hope I'll be able to get all my stuff here in 2009, perhaps this summer.:roll:

scallopino - 7-1-2009 at 08:45

What's in your guitar collection? I'm glad that your original 10 cd's decided to create a whole community.

aquagoat - 8-1-2009 at 19:19

a Yamaha Rgx, don't remember the number, a ESP m307, a strat-like Epiphon that I modified, an Aria pro II RS wildcat and an Ibanez 6 string btb bass.

it's a japanese company that built this guitar, mine was black, it's a cheap guitar that I modified, I removed the original paint and decorated it for a friend who finally gave it to me.

Hey, Aquagoat, I notice you took the wammy bar off. Was the mechanism too cheap? I had to take the wammy bar off my Squire Strat, because the mechanism was crap and kept putting the guitar out of tune. I'm not really into playing with a wammy bar anyway.

aquagoat - 11-1-2009 at 11:17

yes, the mechanism is cheap, I usually don't use the whammy bar with that kind of system. I like the whammy bar, you can do lots of funny things with it but only with Floyd rose types otherwise you go out of tune too quickly, it's boring.

BBP - 11-1-2009 at 12:09

But how can you play the intro of Those Damn Blue Collar Tweekers without whammy bar?

aquagoat - 11-1-2009 at 18:45

Congratulations! There was a guy who came to my university market twice a week who sold those kind of dvds. I got 200 Motels (pretty good quality too!) and was about to get the Barcelona one when he suddenly stopped coming! Such a shame. Another one I got from him was Stockholm In Bondage (not as good quality).

I have that Gojira album. How do you like it?

aquagoat - 4-4-2009 at 15:01

it's quite good, a bit trippier than their previous two albums, I like it very much even if it will surely take a few more listens to fully appreciate it. Their new record, The way of all flesh, didn't strike me much, though.

[Edited on 4-4-2009 by aquagoat]

I liked it, Backbone's a great song... but I wasn't a big fan of their environmental lyrics.

Today I got the Best of Dutch edition of the Phantom Of The Opera.

...before you kill me, please remember that Steve Vai is a fan of Lloyd Webber, and that Henk Poort is considered by Lloyd Webber to be the best Phantom, and that the Dutch translation is a lot better than the English lyrics.

Hey Aqua, are you buying all those on vinyl? When do you find time to listen to them all, you must have a huge number of albums by now.

aquagoat - 12-10-2009 at 19:33

never on vinyl, my opinion about vinyl is simple and here it is: Vinyl=crap, I could explain the different reasons why I came to this conclusion but it would be too long.

I usually liten to music a bit in the morning when I go to work and when I come back from work around 5 pm, then after dinner I rarely watch tv but more often listen to music from 7h30 pm to abut 11h30 pm.
Aty week-ends I often start listening to records from 8h30 am to 12h and, depending on what I have to do in the afternoon, from 1h30 pm to 11h30 pm, sometimes to 3 am. I can't listen to as much music as I would like due to my job, but thanks to that said job I can buy many more records than I used to.

A part of my collection is still at my parents' house, about 1000 cds I think, when I moved to where I live now I hadn't got enough room so I left them there. I only came with about ten cds. At that time, my girlfriend's collection had 97 cds, now she's got 109 cds (I bought this cds for her) and I've got 206 records.

polydigm - 12-10-2009 at 22:03

Yes, I gave up on vinyl a long time ago. I still have a vinyl collection, but I only listen to some of the stuff that's not available otherwise and then hardly ever. For example, I have an album that's a sound track to a rock opera called "Boy's Own McBeth" by Grahame Bond that you bought at the performances. There's a song on there that I like playing and I hadn't done it for a while and forgot some of the lyrics, so I dug it out. I haven't found time to do a digital recording of it yet, which is the main reason I bought the turntable I have with the built in USB. I have plenty of CDs to listen to, so it's only the curiosities that keep dragging me back.

I can see why you'd be interested in that cover. It's a good painting, I like it. Was it done by someone "famous" or just for that album cover. Seems like a lot of work just for an album cover.

BBP - 22-2-2012 at 11:27

In general classical music albums have existing paintings on the cover. This one is by a Finnish artist (lead cellist and the conductor arel also Finnish) named Olli Lyytikäinen; painting is called Donald Duck Under Analysis and dates from 1974.

aquagoat - 23-2-2012 at 08:01

I could have bet money he was at the shrink's.

BBP - 23-2-2012 at 11:16

The artist? He lived from 1949-1987, died aged 47 of alcohol problems. At least that's what I gathered from the Finnish Wikipedia with Google Translate (my Finnish is somewhat limited to the word for coffee filter bags).

Absolutely thrilled to have found Dir en grey's Uroboros at the second-hand shop. It's considered one of their best albums and it delivers on that promise! Although the sound equality could've been better. It's the US version, and for some odd reason they put the English versions of the songs Glass Skin and Dozing Green on the album. Their singer doesn't speak English very well: his pronounciation is goddamn cute. (of course makes an odd combination with his appearance: he's not Terry Bozzio but he gets close with his big eyes and puffy pinchable cheeks; he hates being called cute but the temptation, oh lord the temptation.)

BBP - 4-4-2015 at 11:28

Haha! Their flautist is a cutie though.
Woodwinds like the flutes (whistles, tin whistle, piccolo, ocarina and anything else you blow into directly), because of their nature, tend to be rather agressive and forward. Compare them: in an orchestra there are 24 violins and two to four flutes.
Now, when you teach a kid to play music, you tend to push a recorder in their hands. Why no zither? Or anything else that's soft in nature?

Do you like panflutes?

aquagoat - 4-4-2015 at 12:20

Panflute is ok, but actually it's more the "flute in a celtic/folk context" that gets on my nerves, I have no problem when Napoleon Murphy plays the flute with Zappa, for example.

9 cds, that a lot of music to listen to, I' ve got a few box sets like that, Stravinsky, Bartok, Ravel, Pierre Henry, etc... it's cool to be able to hear the evolution of their music as you listen to lots of their works one after the other.

BBP - 2-5-2015 at 13:45

Chopin wasn't given much time to develop, sadly - he died in his 30s of TBC. There are three early waltzes on it that weren't on another Chopin waltz collection I have; one of these is in A-minor and rather old-fashioned and easy, and the other has such an unusual chord in it that I did some internet research to see if it was a misprint in the sheet music. (it wasn't, it puts a D, A flat, A and B flat opposite each other)
This is the easy one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aspcdJ8Nz0c

I haven't been into collecting music for some time now as any spare time I get I spend on my own music, but I still get the urge to hear something I haven't heard before and over the last year or so I've bought several Eric Dolphy albums and a couple of Duke Ellington albums. I've been listening to all of these when we have family get togethers and they're all worth having. I've really liked Billy Cobham's Spectrum forever so I've also bought a couple more of his albums with mixed results. I've never had any of John McLaughlin's albums from before he started Mahavishnu Orchestra. They're mostly at least interesting but some of the guitar is sketchy and doesn't have the clarity he'd developed by the time Mahavishnu Orchestra cam along. John McLaughlin was with Tony Williams for a while and I just got the latter's Turn It Over album and the singing on it is terrible and pretty much ruins what is otherwise interesting music.

In Cryptic Form - Hunger For Balance.
I occasionally find piles of the same album at the second hand shop for next to nothing, which means they're from a local band and somebody's getting rid of stock. This is something black metal-ish from Bergeijk. Can't say I'm appreciating it so far, but I'm only on the first song.

I really like Power to Believe, I'm impatiently waithing for its 40th anniversary release. I like In the Court and In the Wake, but my favourites are definitely Lakrs Tongues, Starless and Red. I like the Belew era stuff too, but the production sounds so dated and thin in comparison to the previous and the following stuff, imo.

The Blues and the Abstract Truth. That's a good one. I've had that for a while. I got it when I found out about the Stolen Moments connection. Have you got any of Eric Dolphy's albums?

aquagoat - 11-2-2018 at 08:36

Yeah, I've always liked the Zappa rendition of Stolen Moments on TBBYNHIYL, but I'd never heard the original. So I finally did that a few months ago, and really liked the rest of the album. Plus, when you see the people who play on it, it would be a crime not to give a listen. And in addition that, it was only 3€, so what's not to like about all this?

Concerning Dolphy, yes, I've got some of his stuff: copies of Straight Ahead and Far Cry, and a CD of Out to Lunch, I should probably listent to more of his music since appreciate these three records. He and Ornette Coleman are some of the jazz guys I should delve a bit more into.

polydigm - 11-2-2018 at 14:13

So you've obviously listened to the track Straight Up and Down on Out to Lunch. Am I the only one that thinks that inspired the Memorial Barbecue?

aquagoat - 11-2-2018 at 20:00

Well, I guess we can establish links between the two but The Memorial barbecue has typical Zappa style traits. Dolphy's tune has a more classical jazz structure: theme/solos/theme, Zappa's track is more complex.

polydigm - 12-2-2018 at 08:30

Given Zappa's knack for mimicking styles that he either admired or wanted satirise, it wouldn't make sense if a piece in memoriam to Eric Dolphy sounded nothing like him.

Well, actually, there's no video footage, I don't know where I got this idea from, but anyway, I've listened to the first three cds, and it's really good. The playlists are pretty varied, with not too many repeated tracks. Some arrangements differ from the original songsso it makes it pretty interesting. And the sound is great. I think it's worth the money, so far.

Something Japanese, so far with drums...

polydigm - 1-2-2019 at 23:35

On the subject of Japan, I just bought this:

Imagine Meeting You Here
Alister Spence & Satoko Fujii Orchestra Kobe

I heard the tail end of the first track on ABC Jazz radio the other day and then heard samples, which were very interesting, from all five tracks on iTunes and decided to buy the album. I'll let you know how it goes.

On the subject of France, a few months ago I bought this:

Melody Makers II
Pierrejean Gaucher, Clément Petit & Cédric Affre

I got into Pierrejean Gaucher via his band called Zappe Zappa and thought I'd investigate him further. I really like this album.

LeBocal is another band I got into through their Zappa cover album, Oh No!...Just Another Frank Zappa Memorial Barbecue. A while ago I bought one of their albums of their own material:

Bist du froh?
LeBocal

I like it.

On the subject of revivals, I just bought this the other day:

Live In San Francisco
John McLaughlin & The 4th Dimension & Jimmy Herring & The Invisible Whip

A selection of Mahavishnu Orchestra material played live recently. It's pretty good, although the mix gets a bit stodgy here and there.

Also recently purchased, inspired by a Zappateers post:

The Soldier's Tale - Narrated by Roger Waters
Roger Waters: Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival Musicians

I've always liked this Stravinsky composition and mostly listen to instrumental only versions, but this is quite entertaining.

Having decided to buy these last two from amazon.com.au, a third purchase would take me over the free postage barrier, so also bought:

MORE
Pink Floyd

I haven't heard this album for decades. I once had it on Vinyl. It's actually not that bad.

BBP - 28-2-2019 at 22:12

Bought 3 second-hand CDs today, €1 for the lot:

Era
(I have no idea what this is besides a horrible mess. The choir doesn't seem all bad until the fake drums kick in.)

Classical CD with: Peter Schat "Etudes for piano and orchestra" op 39 and Luciano Berio's "Sinfonia" (BB fave) conducted by Edo de Waart, whose name you may have spotted in some of the Zappa-articles on this forum.
So far the Schat seems interesting, I'm looking forward to this interpretation of Sinfonia.

Classical CD with Takemitsu - November Steps and Messiaen - Et Exspecto Resurrectionem.

A bunch of Pal Studio (later Studio Z) archives were released a few years ago. This album is the FZ related material plus a recording of FZ’s tv appearance playing a bicycle. Most of the stuff is on the Cucamonga album. I haven’t yet determined if they’re the same versions. I don’t have all the appropriate background. A lot of the tapes were confiscated but I don’t know how much Paul Buff took with him when he sold the studio to FZ.

In the second-hand store I often find stacks of records by local bands whose albums just didn't sell, and often I pick up one provided it doesn't look like schlager. Today I found another one of those: "Waterloper" by Lichte Dichter. Singer sings in Dutch as added bonus in local accent. But it's already one of the nicest packages I have.

aquagoat - 23-12-2019 at 08:41

If you like that one, you could try the following record, Grindstone, but I would avoid the ones after that, they went into quite a different direction, a kind of pop/noise/black metal that was pretty good on Blackjazz but became really stupid afterwards.

Now playing disk 1 (of 5) and it begins with some crowd noise and a short interview. Sounds like a live from 1970, "The New Maternity". It also has "Ahoy There!" and "Puttin' On The Ritz", so I'm guessing it's a bootleg.

BBP - 20-5-2020 at 16:44

I already enjoyed New Maternity and Ahoy There!, but unfortunately Puttin' On The Ritz appears to be mono.

Currently playing Dimmu Borgir - pretty cool, it's in Norwegian... (I'm a glottophile. My phone has a lot of songs in Spanish, French, German, Japanese of course, Dutch, and now I can add Norwegian songs. Kewl. :bald:)

One of my father's colleagues dropped by to say hi and give him boxes of promotional material. Included are 4 CDs - one with Dutch classical music from Sweelinck to Andriessen (so covering from 16th to 20th century), one contains string quartets from Niels W. Gade (never heard of him, 1817-1890) and a classic sampler that has music from Orlando di Lasso to Carl Orff, so that's another sampler with a wide span.
And the fourth one has a contemporary (read - 1996) selection of Japanese pop. Unfortunately there was no CD in the jewelcase, but I looked up the tracks separately. The titles appear to be off.

Kix-s - "Love In My Life" or a similar title since this was translated.

Ken Muramatsu - Summer Lament The track title is named "Evening calm in the eyes" but I couldn't find that, so here's something by the same author

Gontiti - Dirac in Zoo Also Black Ant's Life and History of Island by the same artist. Advertised in the booklet as: "The Most Comfortable Music On Earth: Gontiti is instrumental acoustic guitar duo made up with Gonzalez Mikami and Titi Matsumura. Gontiti has already released 14 albums in Japan and some of them have released in over sea countries. Gontiti made many concerts all over the world such as Ney York, New Port, Hawaii, Paris, Firenze, Bari Islands and so on. Gontiti is timeless. Gontiti is visual. Gontiti is international. Listen to Gontiti and find your vacance time in Gontiti!

Coba is an accordeon player. Had a bit of a hard time finding his work. Couldn't find the Appetito that is on the disk but I did find his rendition of Libertango which made me reach for any other Libertango.

Mikako Honya - Lunacia

HAL FROM APOLLO '69 - hal from heaven. Hal from heaven is the title.

Four songs by Harumi Tsyyuzaki are on this album. Of these I could only find Time

Shakura soundtrack by Tooru Takemitsu. I hope that's the one at least.

Bridge to the Moon Hiroshi Oguchi and Alan Merrill

I couldn't find their song "Cry Over You" but here's The Girl Can't Help It by Duke & The Summits.

Then there are some songs by Regine. One is "My sweet home" and the other is "Just one more time" - and apparently there is a Philipino singer called Regine Velasquez who has songs by the same title.

Three songs by Hikaru Nishida: Go beep!, Go! Paradise and Omoide-ni tokenagara

I couldn't find "Funkaling" by Unlimited Edition. Here's the write-up in the CD booklet: "This unique pop jazz unit with 8 members was formed when intelligent bass player Tetsutaro Tamaki and Thomas Sawada met in 1992. Playing gigs at bases, clubs and halls in Okinawa and after few member changes they have now become the line up as it is now, 5 boys and 3 girls. The band was scouted during the street live performance in Shinjuku by Mercury Entertainment, and their major debut album "PLEASURE", intelligent yet catchy jazz pop music is about to strike the Japanese market.

Bonnie Pink - Scarecrow

Tomoyatsu Hotei - Poison. There's also a vid hovering around on Youtube where they play together with David Bowie at Budokan.

I couldn't find "Cold Rain" but here's Tsunematsu Matsui - In The Maze

I didn't have much luck with "Sweet girl parade" but here's some by the same artist, Kumiko Yamashita

Third in a row I couldn't find: Bonnet by Hiroyuki Hanada. But here he is live: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aiD_n64j730

"Why Goodbye" by Keizo Nakanishi with Wendy Moten

The last one is "My Christmas Coloring Book" but without artist names I cannot look it up.

Okadan Acoustic Selection. Bought purely since it is Japanese. Now listening to "undaa ze bowa.." (under the boardwalk). Relaxing music though.

The Immortal Coil - The Dark Age Of Love.
Haven't played it yet but when I opened it at the shop it named DAAU as contributing artists. Mind you it's DAAU after Buni Lenski's parting, and I'm not too fond of their work without violin. We'll see...

Indeed, me too. I don't know if I've mentioned it before, but I had an opportunity to work with ZERO on their last album - Blather. I'm playing the baritone sax part on The World's Greatest Sinner, which you can barely hear. Kevin decided to bury it in the mix. Everyone I've played it to can barely hear it at all, but he just denies it. ZERO does have some good FZ covers, but the problem I have with it is that Kevin is a big prog rock fan and he just slathers his tracks with too much synth and uses big chunks out of old Yes and other classic prog rock bands. He has access to a fairly large group of good, diverse musicians - if I had that access I wouldn't be plastering my recordings with synths.
