-Look for an on-line picture you like.
-Right-click it
-In the pop-up menu, look for the properties-option (or something similar, depending on your browser)
-Somewhere in the properties-section, you'll find the word "location", behind it is a long internet name.
-Copy this location
-In the Forum message composer, click the "image"-thingy.
Alternatively, type [img][/img] which I find easier.
-In between these two tags, paste the location of the picture.
-Click Preview to see if it works.
-Post if it works, and voila!

I'm not sure with this board, as the instructions are unclear, but on the Zappa.com board, you seem to be restricted to JPG and GIF-files.

Sachi Hayasaka : Minga




Sachi Hayasaka is one of Japan's most creative composer/performers, a bandleader, arranger and soloist of great passion and originality. Her beautiful sound and adventurous projects have made her, along with Kazutoki Umezu, one of the busiest and most respected saxophonists in Tokyo. For this latest project, she augments her regular ensemble with some of Japan's best world beat musicians and an exciting African drummer Wagane Ndiaye Rose in an eclectic blend of world music and jazz. Minga is Sachi's most dynamic and satisfying musical statement.


...great album.....

Not listening to but reading lyrics to Zappas unreleased 'Solitude' anyone actually heard this track?

Lyrics are quite diverse compared to other Zappa compositions
:umm:

Pappawas1975 - 28-10-2005 at 20:06

Never heard of it? What era is it from?

jewish_princess - 28-10-2005 at 20:14

I have to be honest I have no idea:puzzled:
will do some research and let you know

jewish_princess - 28-10-2005 at 20:43

Solitude was from 1970's and written for Gail by Frank
Here are lyrics:

You have brought me solitude,
And I believe it is the time for me to show some gratitude.
I think I'll take a minute to reflect upon your attitude,
But most of all I love the way that you have brought me solitude.

You have been a friend to me,
And I believe it is the time for me to show some sympathy.
I watch the way you suffer with the problems only I can see,
But most of all I love the way that you have been a friend to me.

You have been misunderstood,
And I believe it is the time for you to feel the way you should.
I'd love to see you smile a while and know that you was feeling good,
But mostly I regret the way that you have been misunderstood.

You have been a friend to me,
And I believe it is the time for me to show some sympathy.
I watch the way you suffer with the problems only I can see,
But most of all I love the way that you have been a friend to me.

You have brought me solitude, you have brought me solitude ...

Pappawas1975 - 2-11-2005 at 15:03

We should get a prize when we reach 100....I think I was up way past 2000 on zappa.com, when their server went down, then I had re-enlist....Not that it mattered, but it was a pain in the ass cos the site was fucked up for a good while...

BBP - 2-11-2005 at 15:15

That was a pain in the ass... I had just started getting into the Forum, had a lot of nice pictures up... That Trendmonger story about his vacuum cleaner is lost forever now...

I'd just started using PM a lot, had contacts with 5 other members, primarily about ducks and ZPZ. I've lost about 50 PM's, one of them an account by Sebastiaan on his interview with GZ, DZ and AZ. I really regret losing that one.

I've grabbed a Die Anarchistische Abendunterhaltung tape, their self-titled album.

Puptent - 9-11-2005 at 13:34

I think he was doing tons of mind-altering chemicals when this album was recorded, certainly sounds that way... Cool record, though.

I'm forced to listen to 3FM (National Dutch pop radio) right now. :(

And? Does Claudia De Breij still think she's funny?

Listening along with the telly again, something French.

Puptent - 9-11-2005 at 16:06

I'm not really paying attention to the DJs talking, but I don't think Claudia's very funny at all.

Kaiser Chiefs' "I Predict a riot" is the Megahit this week, Not a bad song, but that means I'm gonna hear it several times a day until Friday. Kill Ugly Radio :(

Puptent - 14-11-2005 at 11:51

Yeah, there is an alternate cover with Mingus sitting at the piano. Pretty interesting that he played piano instead of upright bass on this record. Major talented guy.

Pappawas1975 - 14-11-2005 at 11:53

Thats the one I have, bought it years ago, so guess thats why!...One of my favourite bass players, but, as you say, this album he is all piano and vocals, which he plays amazing also!!!....Definitely a charming album, and one of my favourite Mingus releases!

Pappawas1975 - 19-11-2005 at 09:50

Some Gong is good, but they do get annoying at times IMO....Camembert is a good one, as is You......

Puptent - 19-11-2005 at 13:19

I have that album cover on a t-shirt, bought it at a Gong gig a few years ago. That concert was something else.. freaks were coming from miles around... Anyway, I like some of their stuff.

mutronboy - 19-11-2005 at 13:52

Yeah, you could probably make a good 'best of' from some of those early albums

I mainly like the funny and Zappa-esque stuff..like 'have a cuppa tea'

There's a good Virgin compilation with the best tracks off 'Expresso II, 'Gazeuse' and 'Shamal' It's called 'Wingful of Eyes'..it's got a bit of Holdsworth & Tommy Bolin on it

Pappawas1975 - 21-11-2005 at 12:19

Yeah, but as an entity, I can take or leave Gong...same with Hawkwind, they have some good stuff, but alot is bloody awful...

Puptent - 22-11-2005 at 11:37

I don't really like Hawkwind either, although I only have the Space Ritual double lp. It's supposed to be their classic but it grates on my nerves after five minutes. They do have tons of albums out there, probably even more than FZ.

Pappawas1975 - 22-11-2005 at 12:31

I know what you mean, "grates" is the perfect word! "Hall Of The Mountain Grill" is a good album though, as it tends to leave all hippy trippy shit at home, and is quite rock based.....

mutronboy - 22-11-2005 at 16:15

My brother's a Hawkwind nut, but most of it bogs me up the wall backwards

I don't mind 'Astounding Sounds' and a bit of 'Hawklords', but most of their stuff is jammy rubbish

I wouldn't put Gong in the same class, though
Some of their stuff is a bit more structured...with some half-decent solos and a bit of humour

I wouldn't put Gong in the same class, though
Some of their stuff is a bit more structured...with some half-decent solos and a bit of humour

Listening to;



Quark, Strangeness And Charm has its moments too, but I wouldnt actively seek out a copy...

My Dad's band played with Hawkwind at a bike thing and he said that they were shit compared to what they used to be like.

Pappawas1975 - 24-11-2005 at 12:20

Yeah, they really should have given up years ago......Think they spilt, then reformed, then split....wouldnt surprise me if they were still going, albeit in a lesser form ( ie Dave Brock the only original member )....

Puptent - 24-11-2005 at 12:29

I'm pretty sure they're still around in one form or another, they were on the bill of a stonerrock festival here last year.

Cannonball Adderley - Fiddler on the Roof

I really don't like musicals at all, but this album is great.

VIO-LENCE - Eternal Nightmare

....An absolutely classic Thrash album. Just bee re-released with an extra disc of live stuff.....AAARRRGGGHHH!!!!!!!

Pappawas1975 - 25-11-2005 at 16:19

From radical Jewish culture to neo fascist post industrial in the sapce of two albums....pretty fucking good going....


Bar Kokhba Sextet : 50th Birthday Celebration Volume Eleven




Bar Kokhba brings together six core members of the Masada family in a dynamic and versatile ensemble of strings and percussion. All the players were at their best on these nights. At times lush and lyrical, at times driving and powerful, but always filled with the intoxicating joy of music making, this long awaited release is a real treasure. Featuring one set from each of their three nights, the band begins relaxed and laid back and slowly builds to an intense unstoppable powerhouse. This is a rare chance to hear how the band grows over the course of an engagementa special 3CD package containing some of Zorns most beautiful and exhilarating music. Sephardic exotica for young moderns.

...followed by....

Von Thronstahl - Bellum, Sacrum Bellum



Puptent - 25-11-2005 at 16:24

Man, I need to get that Bar Kokhba disc as well, I love the other "Bar Kokhba" album. I only have the Electric Masada disc from the 50th birthday series.

Pappawas1975 - 25-11-2005 at 16:27

It is fucking excellent, and its three discs/sets for the price of one!That said, all the 50th B-Day series are excellent....Especially Bar Kokhba, Painkiller and Eye/Zorn Duo....

Kurt Weill - Dreigroschenoper
Conducted by HK Gruber, performed by Ensemble Moderne

with Nina Hagen as an excellent Frau Peachum!

Pappawas1975 - 27-11-2005 at 19:42



Disc Two.....

BBP - 27-11-2005 at 23:33

Your better classical-CD shop should stock it, I've seen it around a lot. Mind you, it's an expensive set. If you just want to buy it for Nina Hagen: her part is very small: one solo song (Die Ballade von der sexuellen Hrigkeit) and a few short solos in the finales. I have another album the Ballade is on which I could send you. Or MP3 it.

Right now Dad's playing with the CD-I again, with Sesame Street: Numbers and Shapes. Never heard so many bad jokes in such a short time space.

Pappawas1975 - 28-11-2005 at 10:36

Sesame Street does rule though, lets face it...

BBP - 28-11-2005 at 13:34

It's fun yeah, really dig Lejo who displays some of his amazing puppetry in the Dutch Sesame Street:

To stay on topic, I'm listening to a DCC (digital compact cassette, yet another Philips invention that never made it) with highlights of Die Zauberflte.

Pappawas1975 - 28-11-2005 at 13:37

Lejo looks pretty good, never seen that before.....

BBP - 28-11-2005 at 13:40

I saw him once on a talk show, he was just fantastic!

Pappawas1975 - 28-11-2005 at 13:45

Id never heard of him till now...Is he only on Dutch SS, or the US version too?

BBP - 28-11-2005 at 13:49

Don't know if he's anywhere else, it's a Dutch guy... You can see some footage of his on his site, if you're interested.

Pappawas1975 - 28-11-2005 at 13:51

I will check that out....Im a sucker for silly things like that Im afraid...

Pappawas1975 - 28-11-2005 at 14:13



An absolute classic....

BBP - 28-11-2005 at 14:13

What's that?

Pappawas1975 - 28-11-2005 at 14:20

Terrorizer - World Downfall....came out on Earache Records, around 1989....Quality grind, featuring David Vincent and Pete Sandoval from Morbid Angel, and Jesse Pintado, who went on to join Napalm Death.....

BBP - 28-11-2005 at 14:23

Napalm Death, Morbid Angel... Sounds great!

Pappawas1975 - 28-11-2005 at 14:25

In a way its like a cross between the two.....Very much in the tradition of politically charged grindcore / early UK hardcore....I thoroughly recommend it!

Dissection: Storm of the Light's Bane.

Pappawas1975 - 30-11-2005 at 14:14

I used to be into Dissection, their demos in particular, in my nerdy death metal tape trading days, but am not too familiar with them nowadays.....That album is hailed as a classic though isnt it?

BBP - 30-11-2005 at 18:36

Not sure... I just loved that album... I believe one of their band members has recently served a jail sentence of 10 years (murder).

Pappawas1975 - 17-12-2005 at 22:03

This guy can play some good tunes....he played So What the other week, but did talk over alot of Miles first theme.....This isnt too bad is it?

Puptent - 17-12-2005 at 22:06

Much better than our local radio station indeed, I think they mostly play music for elderly citizens there.

I'm hearing an instrumental by the Beastie Boys now, I think I have this record as well, somewhere here...

Pappawas1975 - 17-12-2005 at 22:09

Thats it! Thought it rang a bell....! Well, unfortunately for them / us, ICR have again lost out on getting an FM license this year, so its another year of online only radio....

Puptent - 17-12-2005 at 22:14

That's really too bad, mate. Stuff like your radio program deserves wider exposure, me thinks. Would be cool if you still could get the archiving thing, though...

Friends of mine had a hiphop program on a local station nearby, but they got booted off for cursing on the air too much.. heheh.

I thought your show would start already, forgot you guys in the UK are one hour behind our local time. Well, I don't mind listening to Pink Floyd either. :)





[Edited on 17-12-2005 by Puptent]

Pappawas1975 - 17-12-2005 at 22:16

The archiving is underway now so Im told, and the site is getting a revamp.....My thoughts exactly pup, its a great place to be, because everyone involved is just 100% music. Ive met people there who I can chat to for hours who are into similar stuff as me, and have been put onto alot of great new stuff too, which is what its all about.

Click onto the 1st page of this topic. Or:

Step 1: Find a nice picture that's on-line.
Step 2: Right-click this picture. If you have Windows, go to the Properties of the picture.
Step 3: Look for the location of the picture within the properties page.
Step 4: Copy the address you'll find.
Step 5: Paste it into your mail form.
Step 6: Put the tag [img] before the address
Step 7: Put the tag [/img] after the address
Step 8: Check the result:
it should look like this:

Hey i love snooker! And pool and billiards! They are like the world's best sports to watch late at night.

I can't wait til one or all of these are at the olympics or Commonwealth Games.

In fact, my next avatar might be Efren Reyes.

Snooker rules! I can watch it anytime. Though I'm a disaster at playing it.

Ooh, you might've heard by now, O'Sullivan lost in the final frame on the black ball, very exciting match.

Right now, I'm not listening to anything. I'm just waiting for the bus, which will be here in 45 minutes.

So now I've got the answer to that question that's been intriguing me since I bought "Sailing on the seas..." in 91. Thank you Bonny.

But maybe it WAS les but they his firstname was Lester, do you know if he worked for Caroline rec ?

Frizzle Fry, the first studio album of Primus, was initially released on Caroline Records. Seas of Cheese was released on Interscope. But I'm pretty sure it's a different Les. There seem to be quite a few Les Claypools around.

Whilst pottering around in between re-tries at zappa.com I found out Jeff Beck is on with Buddy Guy at Birmingham NIA (UK, not Alabama!) in July and I've managed to get 2nd row tickets!

NP is is the first song of the 2x2 cd "blues classics" John Lee Hooker, Boom Boom.... " :rolleyes:
oh and right now its already Jimmy Reed...
pretty cool!!!!!!! still to come and I'm already enjoying it: Leadbelly, Brownie MCGhee/Sonny Terry, Lightnin' Slim ....:drooling:

He played on their last album.....I heard a couple tracks online, have to admit I wasnt totally blown away. Having said that, Vinnie is always on fire, and he sounded good, but in "metal" mode, so was hardly spinning freely, as on SUNPYG for example.
Megadeth lost it for me after So Far, So Good...So What, so if you liked their later albums you might like the VC album too no doubt ( forget what its called ).....

What a great record. I hadn't listened to it for what... 10 years. Actually I only listened to it once at that time cause it was on a cassette a friend of mine had lent me with Lark's tongue and another Crimson album I don't remember the title of.

Gojira or anyone else here, do you know a King Crimson record that sounds very modern, almost industrial ala Ministry or NIN ? I think this record was released in the 70's, but that's all the clues I can give you. If one of you could help me...

Pappawas1975 - 25-5-2006 at 09:59

It could be The Construktion Of Light?....That was a 90s record though, and it wasnt too hot IMO. Cant think of a 70s album in that vein though, sorry....
Larks Tongues is amazing though....My favourite KC album, always goes down well....

aquagoat - 25-5-2006 at 18:56

Hmmm, perhaps my memories are distorted, I don't know, I should have stollen that cassette :devil: Anyway, thanks Gojira.

Not a long time ago I took my old Dio CDs and gave them a listen and woooww, Holy diver, Last in line, Sacred heart, Dream evil, what great albums, I hadn't listened to them for years and had forgotten how good they were, especially Holy diver, though I preferred Last in line when I was younger.

The good thing with Death angel is that each album is different while staying typically death angel style. Too bad the made only three records at that time. Have you heard their new album ?

No, keep meaning to pick it up though....Any good? Same line up?
That box set thing seemed a little pointless to me also, consisting of songs from the first two albums and a few extra thingies thrown in for good measure, but would like to hear their last record. they played in London last year sometime and was tempted, but chose not to go in the end....

Re Dio, yeah, all those albums rule, but I never liked Dream Evil though. It never quite reached the heights of the other three IMO. Shitty production too...
Apparently his later work ( "Magica" or something ) is worth getting too. And he has just put out Holy Diver Live, which judging by the reviews is a great album....

Yes he said he was anyway! Blatant press stunt! We saw their first UK tour, back in 1990 or something, and Glen Benton came out to their sordid,cheap looking people carrier out front of the venue. Instead of being cool with us fans who were already outside the show, he went to the van pretending to be REALLY EVIL and PISSED OFF, opened the boot, took a sports bag out, then SLAMMED the door shut, and walked REALLY EVIL - STyle, back into the venue. We all just laughed, was quite embarrasing really.
The next night in Bradofrd, his bass was stolen and was nearly beatne up outside the gig for being an idiot - Not by the Christians though, but by people who just thought he was a dick! Great days and great shows though, gotta say Deicide did kick ass that night.....

That Benton's always made me laugh so much, he's so ridiculous, too bad, cause it's true Deicide was a cool band.

And yes, Giant robot's quite a good record, plus, it cost me nothing cause I downloaded it-you cannot find it anywhere anyway.

Ha! Sorry mate.....Good old Venom eh? Absolutely dreadful, but ya just cant resist em......Played OZZY OSBOURNE Tribute today also - Great album, Randy Rhoads is amazing.....Followed by U.F.O. Strangers In The Night.....Quite a heavy day.....

aquagoat - 9-6-2006 at 19:39

Yeah, Venom sounds awful, the drums are... well let's not talk about the drums, they're too crappy, but you're right, you can't resist.

I remember when my ex-girlfriend bought it in 1989, we couldn't stop listening to it and doing the evil sign with our fingers when Cronos sang "In league with Satan", "Welcome to hell" or "Witching hour"( which is still a song I'd like to cover with a band, one day). Those were the days when we were young and wild.:D

"Tribute"'s the second Ozzy album I bought after "No rest for the wicked". That's really a great album for Rhoads fans (which I'm not really), I especially like Ozzy's approach to it, releasing it long after Randy's death. That's really a sign of respect for the boy, I think, so many other people would have released it just after the tragedy to make big bucks, record executives, for example.

[Edited on 9-6-2006 by aquabot]

Pappawas1975 - 10-6-2006 at 09:21

Not a Rhoads fan? Thats interesting. As far as live rock albums go, its a stormer I think. Never really heard "No rest....", apart from the singles that came from it, and after that record I kinda gave up on Ozzy solo stuff.....
Ended last night cranking this baby -



aquagoat - 10-6-2006 at 13:24

Let me make it clear, Rhoads was a great guitar player but Wylde influenced me more with his aggressivity on the instrument.

That slayer record, what can I say, it's a classic.

Fair enough mate, I wasnt questioning your opinion at al, after all, Im no guitar player so i cant talk!
Yeah, Reign In Blood is still amazingly good. I bought it when it came out, and it doesnt seem like 20 odd years ago! It doesnt sound like it was put out that long ago either......

Yeah, on their last live DVD they played the entirety of Reign in blood, I don't know whether it's good or not though, I haven't the occasion to listen to it yet. But it's got to be, Slayer live is always impressive.

Well, I discovered this band a few months ago (I've been listening to death metal since Death's Leprosy but for some reason i'd never bought any Immolation record before), I bought Unholy cult and it was like :shocked::shocked: then bought Close to a world below and Harnessing ruin within a month, so I guess I can say I like them a lot.

The album above is good but not as much as Unholy cult. I plan to buy Dawn of possession soon, so I can't compare both records yet. I don't think it has evolved a lot though since Dawn of possession.

You can watch to the video of the title track I posted above to form an opinion.

Cool, thanks man. Youll like D.O.P., its just so raw and brutal. Immolation were such a big names on the tape trading circuit, when that came out it was a monumental event!
I saw Immolation supporting Morgoth and Massacre in London back in 91 or 92, and they killed. Your post got me thinking - what happened to the great live bills like we had back in the day? Everything seemed more exciting then!

Guess its just a sign of age!

I kinda feel the same way about the PT album. After a few listens, it is a good album, but I cant help but feel it doesnt quite hit the mark somehow. Its certainly not quite up there with classic Patton related albums like Angel Dust, The Directors Cut, Adult Themes For Voice, etc.

I feel the same way about the Maldoror album. On paper, Patton with Merzbow is a mouth watering event, yet the album, while stil enjoyable, just doesnt quite hit the mark. Strange, but thats rocknroll I guess....

As for your query as to me selling Cds BB, the answer is DEFINITELY NOT ANYMORE! I did, in my silly, reckless early to mid teens, but I would never do it again. I definitely learnt my lesson. After thinking " Im never gonna listen to these albums again ", what happened about 6 months down the line? A tune from one of the said albums pops into my head, and Im all like " Shit! I remember that and I wanna hear the album again! ". I think in total I sold about 60 Cds over a period of about a year.

Most of the Cds I sold I have bought back, but thats not the point, as I could have been buying albums I didnt have previously and breaking new ground rather than replacing ones I sold.

You live and learn!

and that:



I received it this morning, listened to it twice this afternoon and will listen to it again in bed tonight. Well what can I say, it's not really dub except one or two tracks, but it's a "trippy" album. Some pieces make me think about a kind of hardcore Pierre Henry on speed. I've got to listen to it again to analyse it better, but I think I'm gonna buy more Merzbow records soon.

[Edited on 9-8-2006 by aquabot]

Pappawas1975 - 10-8-2006 at 08:50

I know what youre saying, I kinda agree. Merzdub is certainly more dub than his previous "dub" effort, "Merzbuddha". Important Records stated in the ads for Buddha about it being all dub, when in fact it really wasnt at all....This upset alot of hardcore Merzbow fans, and hence some were reluctant to buy Dub.
Havent read alot of feedback regarding it yet either, but Im still enjoying it. Its due for another listen, but Ive got so many albums to get through first!

punknaynowned - 4-9-2006 at 09:54

1969 06 06 London, first half
one of the last shows of the early Mothers
songlist:
01 Uncle Meat 3:23
02 drum duet 1:38
03 Some Ballet Music (primarily the horn section doing the part of greggory peccary 'if it's wide enuf, everyone will know, that the tie I'm wearing is a symbol of how nimble my mind will grow . . .' and later joined with percussion, 4:57
04 improvisation (much of this is very similar to that found at the beginning of the bbc king kong vid from '68, wish I had a video of this tho) 6:53
05 Big Leg Emma 2:35
06 Pound For A Brown intro, Frank tells the story of California surfers and their clothes and their station wagons with the panelling on the side 'which' Frank says, 'gets ya a lot of pussy', to a London audience, and the cultural varieties of the ever popular moon or 'brown out' and thus the name of the song; he then goes on to explain the different sections of the song as acting in place of visual aids, explaining the traffic, the buses, the roundabouts and the circumstances of this particular exchange between Jimmy Carl Black and Bunk Gardner: 6:40
07 Pound For A Brown ; remember the sound of the guitar on weasels? there ya go, 6:10
08 Sleeping In A Jar 14:18
09 Interlude 3:43

sound quality reminds me of old skool AM radio broadcasts, but the high end is sharp, I mean charp and clean, for the most part. In other words there seems to be a particular higher end frequency that seems natural, like what you'd hear in the hall that day but the rest seems compressed, clipped and or like the tape has gone thin

I don't think so, I've heard a few excerpts from Discipline and it didn't remind me of anything.

Pappawas1975 - 5-9-2006 at 08:40

Dont think it could be Discipline, Three Of A Perfect Pair or Beat, or indeed any 80s KC....My guess is The Konstruktion Of Light. I cant see a 70s Crimson album being tagged Industrial? If so, its an inaccurate tag. "Industrial" is such an over - used term

Camper Van Chadbourne, Let's Make The Water Turn Black/Absolutely Free medley from 20 years ago. As good an example of what I freaked out on 20 years ago. Great Album. So is Eugene Von Beethoven.

Whats the verdicts on your recent Merzbow purchases aqua? Any favourites?

I v'e got 1930, Amlux, Merzdub, Merzbuddha and Merzbird now. and I ve listened to Music for bondage performance. My favourite is 1930, I like Amlux a lot, but I think 1930 is more violent and I really like that. Merzbird and Merzbuddha are fine but not as good as 1930 in my opinion. I'm gonna buy more records cause I've become a fan now. I don't know which yet, but I think Batzoutai is going to be one of them if no-one buys it before me.

npr, all things considered, a late afternoon two-hour show where they give three to eight minute newsstory segments. With single four-minute news wrap-ups that originate from the central day-long thread every 30 minutes.
the current segment at the end of this two-hour 'show' is about a new film -- is it a tv show? I'm not sure -- on the Queen of England, Elizabeth. They're talking with the actress portraying her.

Yep, the one of which I asked Dweezil when it was out (even though I knew that at the time) and the one which I tried to order at Bullit CD-store but they said I had better wait a few weeks. :umm:
You won't regret it, Punk... his best to date easily.

But for now I'm playing Iron Maiden - Life After Death.

I downloaded the top 100 of 1962
A radioprogram in the eighties transmitted that at night.
Amazingly that some songs still can be heard and recognized.

I like to do various kinds of research in those areas. Would you have a link for that perhaps? and who decides these sorts of things for the internet???:rolleyes::umm:;-)
Thank you, kindly.

Ah! wait!
Maybe' it'd be good to read yer post. Was it a billboard or Casey Kasem or maybe a Dutch version of the above? It would be interesting to hear a great number of different years.
To give example, I have picked a year where I have much of the released or recorded music and I decided to make a set of tapes and then cd's of that year's music. 1966 was the year I picked, but there are several others that are great 'watersheds'.
haaha! I love this stuff.

The dj's are dutch spoken and some 3 % of the music is Dutch including moscow.... By the Dutch New Orleans Syncopators wich is actually better then/than the English version.
The whole top 100 is aprox. 6.5 hours in a over 400M mp3 file
The best way to get it is to go to

ftp://audio.reeltoreel.nl

Log in with loginname : audiofreaks
Password : akaithebest

No capitals

In the map HTTPDOCS you will find the mp3 file of over 400 mb.

punknaynowned - 12-10-2006 at 13:17

wow!
thanx!
I won't be able to understand the dj's but that's ok.

Similarly I found a number of interviews and radio shows that monsieur zappa participated in on mp3 and flac:
22dec66, interview w Don Paulsen
10nov68 and
27nov68, FM radio shows where frank talks with the dj and they play records. Lotta doo-wop and rare '50's r-n-b ! Hotcha!

I've been listening to them obsessively all summer.
There are really only two zappa/mothers songs on it. . .
consider this an idea w/r/t the other 'original idea' post

DED - 13-10-2006 at 13:03

And after video.googe.com I discovered a whole lotta Frank zappa movies on youtube.com searching for zappa. It gave well over 700
returns.
And when you like some zappa history try to search for
Hoepla. On youtube there is a 5min version of this famous Dutch TV show with the firts boobies on Dutch television (Phil Bloom) and a clip of Frank and the mothers of invention. (second show)

It doesn't hurt when you miss the dutch DJ's. In fact what they say about some artist it is sourced from English papers. Most facts are commonly known. As for the dutch music, you dont't wanna know, me either :drool:

punknaynowned - 14-10-2006 at 17:43

unknoen venue, may 1973
quite a line-up

== The Mothers Of Invention Feb - Sep 1973 ==
FZ, Jean Luc Ponty, Tom Fowler, Ralph Humphrey, Ruth Underwood, Ian Underwood, George Duke, Bruce Fowler,
Sal Marquez (late Mar - Jul),
and
01 Intro/tuning/initial song program presentation [5:50]
02 Dog Meat [7:37] gorgeous
03 Fifty-Fifty [8:18]
04 Cosmik Debris [5:42], sweet 'intro to fz guitar attack' !!!
05 "Heaven is in your Mind" (Preamble to Zomby Woof) in response to what fz delicately calls an 'oversupervized audience' : "Relax, though supervised", [1:28] cuts out (tf1)
06 Zomby Woof [5:03] cuts in a note or two after the beginning
07 Montana [6:41], slow, precise
08 Dupree's Paradise Prelude [6:13] all George Duke
09 Dupree's Paradise [13:39] cut (tf2)@ 12:36,772 - slight tho improving SQ problems thereafter
10 "Building Curfew" announcement [1:31]
11 Farther Oblivion [8:22], really nice!!! tho ends short

Total time: 70.24 min

tho an underinspired ponty contribution, this is a very solid show. highly reccommended. Different in character from the later may and jun/jul shows downunder and so on. The sound here sounds very SBD except for the end of dupree's paradise and the rest and that is very listenable. Twenty years ago I would not have noticed much difference between this latter part of the show and a record release!
The guitar and amp and style in Montana sound like the same set up for 'Duck Duck Goose' on Lather!!!!!!!!!
Duke's keyboard sounds rich and warm like on Roxy!!!
With some relatively minor problems, this is an awesome show.
So very lovely to hear Ian Underwood and Bruce Fowler and George Duke go at it with Ruth on exercise 4, dog breath, uncle meat. My favorite version of this by almost any band.

My only complaint with this tape is that I wish the quality of dupree's paradise, where ponty shines musically, ca=ould be a tad better, tho it does kick in after about a minute and then again about 5 minutes in, again. Frank's guitar after ponty's solo and countered by Duke's keys is fantastic!!!!!!

punknaynowned - 14-10-2006 at 19:05

Uncle Meat, side one, original vinyl burned to cd and ripped to itunes

1969 08 10 Warrensville, OH (mp3 sourced)
String Quartet, 20+ minutes
Trouble Every Day/ Transylvania boogie, King Kong-y type Jam, nearly 14 minutes, the sound here gains a lot of hiss; in other words, the 1960's era recording equipment is more evident here and the very high end tends to get a slight buzz at the peaks and the low end seems very squashed, but still very listenable. Around the 7:00 mark, the gumbo variation theme is easily discerned, but for only about a minute.
In The Sky
Bolero in G Jam, so has Chunga's chords, 7:30
More Trouble Every Day, nearly 12 minutes
Let's Make The Water Turn Black/Oh No, 5 minutes

BBP - 15-10-2006 at 16:55

You must have an admirable bootleg collection...

punknaynowned - 15-10-2006 at 18:55

bigger than some, smaller than others.
three cheers for zappateers!!!

In about six months I've picked up over a hundred shows and such -- a couple are rehearsals, there's a couple out-of-print singles in there and so on. As a result, some tapes are 15 minutes long, some are an hour, some are two hours, one is over three hours. I haven't counted to see how many hours it all is. I figure I have about as many minutes of bootlegs as official releases. About.
You have to learn to stretch your ears past the differences in sound quality and that is difficult for some. Frank really did seem to pick the best or the weirdest for the album releases.
Another thing that becomes apparent is how many times it took many YEARS for him to get a song on record. For example, the part of greggory peccary, 'IF IT'S WIDE enuf, everyone will KNOW that the tie I'm WEARing is a SYMbol of how NIMble my mind will GROOOOOOOOOOOW' is played by the woodwinds in the original mothers: 1968-69. So it took nearly ten years to get that tasty little sucker released. Another example: the original version of Sharleena recorded in 1969, not released til the mid '90's on the Lost Episodes!!!!!!!! I love it.
right now I listen to
1970 05 15 with the LA Philharmonic and Zuben Mehta.
1970 05 15 with Zuben Mehta and the LA phil

01 intro 2:24
02 My Boyfriend's Back - I'm Gonna Bust His Head 2:45
03 Tiny Sick Tears 6:16
04 Agon 0:48
05 Call Any Vegetables - Integrales 10:36
06 Blowing Discordant Sounds - tuning - [!] 2:10
07 intro to 200 Motels Suite 1:44

15 King Kong 6:48
16 intro to encore 1:03
17 Plastic People 1:46
18 Oh No - Orange County Lumber Truck (incl. Linda Lu) 9:04

Total time 98:45.32

Notes

[!] = Cut during track, music is missing.
A part for those noted in file names, another cut (with no music missing) is after the end of King Kong.

* "assorted themes for orchestra I" includes themes from: A Pound For A Brown, Oh No, Envelopes, Little House I Used To Live In, Bogus Pomp, World's Greatest Sinner and more.
** "assorted themes for orchestra and rock band" includes themes from: Holiday In Berlin, Inca Roads, Strictly Genteel, Duke Of Prunes and more.
*** "assorted themes for orchestra II" includes themes from: A Pound For A Brown, What's the Name Of Your Group, Bogus Pomp and more.
**** "suite finale" includes themes from: Oh No, A Pound For A Brown, The Eric Dolphy Memorial Barbecue and more.

I'm right in the middle of suite II and III. It's so wonderful the way it seques from lumpy gravy to the real full blown holiday in berlin to the strictly genteel teaser!!!!!!!
really makes me wish the recording was more crisp and not a 36 year old tape.
I guess I kinda rambled there

punknaynowned - 15-10-2006 at 19:17

I take back when I said he picked the best for the albums. Much of it, yes. But certainly not all of it.
You've heard Ahead Of Their Time? They also played Uncle Meat that night starting with percussion and then playing it "ONE--NOTE -- AT-A --TIME!"
Fantastic!
But for the early Mothers which for some reason I enjoy the most, the 1969 05 23 Appleton, Wisconsin show is a real treat. I AM gonna listen to that today. Great sound! Like a live record from that time. Superb! on two cd's! Free! Some would say I'm spoiling myself. But now I'm thinking the zft will release more of these deep dish box set things. So the artefact quality can only improve overall :bouncy: and still have all this other comparative material.:rsvd:

I came to appreciate it a lot more this summer tho, strangely while listening to these tapes:

Valarie, without a doubt. Couldn't tell ya why I love it either. I just really do. The version on the Ark, jul69 is the one I like the best, of what I've heard.

Valerie is my favourite too! I've only heard the BWS version. Frank seems to really be singing with almost a sincere romantic verve (which is emphasized by the slow rate of the words), which we don't get to hear very often from him of course. :lol:

BBP - 5-12-2006 at 11:57

Like Primus very much! But I only know Ween from the South Park album, and that song is in the line of songs I always skip.

Now I'm listening to Dad trying out his magnetic tapes he just got. Now playing is a Dutch translation of The Wild Rover.

punknaynowned - 5-12-2006 at 19:15

yeah, Homo Rainbow is a nice sentiment but I never listen to that one either.
the live album Paintin The Town Brown '90-'98 is great. you'll find lots on there to enjoy. Also, the most recent Shinola vol 1 is a very representative ween record. my faves are the first 4 releases: GodWeenSatan: The Oneness, Pure Guava, The Pod and Chocolate & Cheese. The Mollusk is also great and nautically themed and Quebec is a fine return to form.
Now unlike some other artists, they're not looking for anybody to buy their records. It makes $$ for the record company. But those are the definitive versions that most people know. They make their shilling off of live tours and have consistently played 3+ hour shows for the last 10 years -- except for summer festival lineups where that kinda behavior is just not feasible. So you don't have to worry about giving them yer money. They could care less. Buy the records used or download them, worry free.
Again, get the live album Paintin The Town Brown '90-'98 and Shinola vol 1.
you won't regret it.:D

DED - 7-1-2007 at 12:28

I.m listening to music at this moment without playing something.
There is a discussion on the telly and the pc is silence. But in my head there is that stupid melody
Parompon....parompon
It was used in a TV commercial for the WNF in Holland.
Pictures of waterfalls and that music.
I thought it was classical theme but Bonny our expert thought that is was something nothing composed for the commercial.
Yesterday we saw the 3 hour movie Barry Lyndon and guess
In several parts beginning middle and end
Parompon........parompon
Grr
According to the music list it is Sarabande from Handel

An Pierl, Belgian (Flemish) singer/songwriter, born 1974 in Gent.

http://www.myspace.com/anpierle

I know Pierl from her collaboration with DAAU in 1996. She's on their album "We Need New Animals", and sang the beautiful "Broken" on it. The web-site with that music file is now gone.

I watched a few of those videos and I like it.
she reminds me of a cross between Margo Timmons, Cowboy Junkies, and Regina Spektor.
only saw the live vid of Helium Sunset, can understand what you mean.
also watched Kiss Me and Jupiter.
thanx!!

BBP - 12-2-2007 at 22:47

Original Helium Sunset is on the unofficial anpierle myspace (not the white velvet one). Not a perfect version, but still as odd as should be.

I'm seriously thudding my head. Once I was at a festival where she was performing and I didn't go to see her.
But who are Cowboy Junkies, Regina Spektor and Margo Timmons?

scallopino - 13-2-2007 at 06:32

Hey, i'd never heard of An Pierle but she's great! I want to learn to play accordion now. Can you play accordian Bonny? Is it common for people to play accordion in your parts?

Ya know punk, i was in my car the first time i heard Miss Spektor and i almost drove off the road. But there is a definitely a portion of the female population who don't like this kind off stuff in my experience. Maybe there is some kind of a sexual aspect to it or something... i know i don't like that many male singers.

I'm willing to learn accordion but they're just too expensive.

You could study musicology... therec was a speech for instrument class on the accordeon but the girl who did that, didn't know how it worked herself. The sound is caused by metal reeds, just like with harmonicas and melodicas.

punknaynowned - 15-2-2007 at 10:11

check it out, I swear, I just heard the missing early mothers link !!
it starts at the beginning of the track called King Kong, here
http://www.killuglyradio.com/features/miscellaneous/gilles_friday_b...

the point I got so excited about starts right about 50 seconds into it with frank's lead guitar.
It only lasts 35 seconds or so before it goes into the rhythm section (also found after the head or beginning near the 3:00 mark of King Kong as in AOTT, 28oct68 RFH), which constitutes the initial or lead-in.
As the following is a horn solo over this same rhythm accompaniment that does seem to rock and jazz-out more (full stops, actual swing tempo ) but for less than three minutes and the band stops.
Frank tells a King Kong story, but his vocals here are so squashed and mushed and far away, I can't understand most of it.
Then the song begins like on so many other versions we know (like AOTT).
the whole file of just King Kong by itself here is 12.2 MB and is an mp3.

but you get a key different guitar comp that blends probably three different zappa melodies I think, in what seems to be an improv!!!!!
the story of King Kong is unlike any I've ever heard, I should do a write-up of this somewhere.
no, I have to finish the 22dec66 interview

Theo Maassen: Lauwe Pis. Current #1, has awesome lyrics!

{Decided to put them here, with literal translation of proverbs.
Carnaval is the annual pre-Lent festivity, involving music with a slow, strong beat and catchy tunes, dressing up, titties and beer}

In Afrika daar smaken rauwe bonen nogal zoet
In Africa, raw beans taste sweet (Hunger is the best sauce)
omdat er altijd ergens wel een hongersnoodje woedt
because there's always a small famine somewhere
je zit dan psychologisch net iets sneller in een dal
this puts you in a psychological dip a little quicker
daarom zeg ik Afrikaantjes vier toch ook eens carnaval!
so I say: little Africans: celebrate Carnaval!

Ze maken mij de pis niet lauw
They don't make my pee luke warm (They don't make me crazy)
het heeft tieten, zit te zeiken, 3 keer raden..ja een vrouw!
It has tits and is whining, guess 3 times... yes a woman!
ze maken mij de pis niet lauw
They don't make my pee luke warm
ik ben een beetje misselijk k hoop dat k het binnen hou
I'm a little sick I hope I can keep it in

En in het midden oosten daar heb je een conflict
And in the Middle East there's a conflict
daar lijkt mij polonaise uitermate voor geschikt
Polonaise seems to be highly suitable for that
{Polonaise: dance to carnaval music: stand behind someone, put your hands on his shoulders, then walk to the beat of the music)

argumenten gaan dan ongemerkt over in gelal
Arguments turn into drunk man talk unnoticed
nou dan hoor je al van verre, ja daar is het carnaval
well then you can hear from way away: yes it's Carnaval over there!

Ze maken mij de pis niet lauw
They don't make my pee luke warm
hup kom op die beentjes wijd ik blijf je altijd trouw
Hup come on, spread those legs, I'll always be faithful to you
ze maken mij de pis niet lauw
They don't make my pee luke warm
dat is geen schoudervulling, nee dat is gewoon mn bouw
They're no shoulder pads, that's just my body

Amerika, het land van Bush..dat is de president
America, the country of Bush... that's the president
het zijn de nieuwe nazis al wordt dat door hun ontkend
They are the new nazis, even though they deny
ze roeiden indianen uit, een volk kwam ten val
They exterminated the indians, the people was defeated
ja, er zijn nog indianen maar alleen met carnaval
yes, there are still indians but only during Carnaval

Ze maken mij de pis niet lauw
They don't make my pee luke warm
ik hou van jonge meisjes, want die zijn zo lekker nauw
I like young girls because they're nice and tight
ze maken mij de pis niet lauw
They don't make my pee luke warm
doe maar weer een ander ik verveel me nogal gauw
I'll have another one already... I'm bored very quickly

In China daar eet iedereen elke dag chinees
In China everybody eats Chinese food every day
dat kan toch niet gezond zijn, altijd bami met wat vlees
That can't be healthy, always bami and some meat
daarom adviseer ik frietje met of broodje bal
That's why I advice fries with mayonnaise or a mince meat sandwich
want dat is wat wij eten hier tijdens carnaval
'cos that's what we eat during Carnaval

Ze maken mij de pis niet lauw
They don't make my pee luke warm
het kan heel even pijn doen als ik em naar binnen douw
It can hurt a little while when I shove it right in
ze maken mij de pis niet lauw
They don't make my pee luke warm
de boodschap die is duidelijk, hou maar op met dat ge-au
The message is clear, you can stop the "ouch"es now

Nee, dan de buitenlanders, wat zijn het er toch veel
No, those foreigners... there's so many!
dat heet dan met een mooi woord multicultureel
It's called "multicultural"
ja, ik zeg niet dat het vol is want dan klinkt er straks een knal
yes I won't say it's full because I may hear a bang
en dat kan ik niet gebruiken want dan mis ik carnaval
and I can't use that, or else I miss Carnaval!

Ze maken mij de pis niet lauw
They don't make my pee luke warm
er zit ook wel wat bloed bij maar het meeste is cacao
There's some blood in there but most of it is cacao
ze maken mij de pis niet lauw
They don't make my pee luke warm
dat wijf dat moet niet zeiken zolang ik dr onderhoud
That bitch shouldn't whine as long as I provide for her

Alle moslim terroristen, of ja een heleboel
All muslim terrorists, or yes a lot
die zijn bereid te sterven voor een hoger doel
They are prepared to die for some higher purpose
want dan mag je maagden neuken, in kleine honderdtal
because then you can screw virgins, nearly a hundred
maar dat is nog altijd minder als ik met carnaval
but that's always less than me during Carnaval!

national (public funded outside of taxes) news radio end-of-day wrap-up (NPR) is what's playing now.

March is a funny month here in my town. It kicks off with the end of the regular college basketball season, which leads to tournaments and Final Four and championship games and lots of drinking in large groups and so on. The University team here always does well and often is in the top 20 in the nation, which is significant. This year, going into the final run up to the championship game where teams are matched against each other and people bet on them in droves, our team is ranked no 2 in the nation. we won the local regional champ games on sunday. This will continue for the next couple weeks.
On March 17, St Patrick's day is the only widely 'celebrated' Christian 'holiday' outside of xmas and easter. It's expressed in people wearing green, having parades and drinking. But things get screwy the few days before and stay that way a few days after.
It's also springtime here, so everyone's hormones break the barometer.
And this year they've mandated an earlier change in daylight savings time, on Sunday, about three weeks early.
It's also been pretty warm for weeks, since mid February or earlier. February is usually our coldest month . . .
All these things make things REALLY weird here. Lots of litttle minor annoyances that clutter up any public outing. And wonderful things too

That is a problem in Holland
Small country and many stations
Ned 1,2,3 RTL 4,5,7 SBS6, net5, Veronica and Talpa
All of them has commercials, so prices for transmitting commercials are falling down. For the same Income they need more commercials and that is no problem, because manufacturers can bring their commercials on more stations, since the price are low.
And that all is resulting in Hige commercial blocks of over 10 minutes every 15 minutes. Still wondering how they manage to programm programs and shows in between.

Bonny, I think you would really like the new Wazoo cd. It's a diferent kind of official release. you said you had the berlin show. which is great, yet wazoo is definitely NOT an audience recording. It very much has that you-are-there feeling, and not like it's coming to you thru a string-and-a-can!
It's a nice blend of classical and rock, avant and traditional. Eye opening. Better blended and completely different music than, say, Ahead Of Their Time which has those elements too.

BBP - 21-12-2008 at 17:17

Discovering somebody put all the Mr Bungle tracks on YouTube! Too awesome almost: unfortunately I lost both my Mr Bungle albums (Disco Volante and Mr Bungle), when lending them to my sister. Why do I keep letting her use my stuff?

Pappawas1975 - 22-12-2008 at 08:51

The Bedlam In Goliath is excellent, Aqua. If you like their other albums, you will dig it for sure. Up there in my albums of 08, definitely.

Oh, and check out Mr. Bungle's "California" album BBP, if you haven't already.

It is WIN.

aquagoat - 22-12-2008 at 19:37

well, actually I've never heard any of their albums but I plan to do it soon, so I'd just like to know what it their music sounds like and what records you recommend.

scallopino - 23-12-2008 at 04:11

The Mars Volta are really cool as a band. I love what they do...total virtuosos. The singing kind of gets annoying for me after a while though. Their former drummer formed One Day As A Lion with Zach de la Rocha and recently released an ep.

BBP - 23-12-2008 at 14:16

There's some of their material on YouTube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPeSbITit5U
You're right, Scallop: the singing is annoying, although the music is interesting.

Pappawas1975 - 23-12-2008 at 16:30

I think the singing is an aquired taste, but I love it.

I would start with De-loused In The Comatorium though Aqua...

aquagoat - 23-12-2008 at 18:55

thank you very much.

feetlightup - 23-12-2008 at 22:18

About a year ago I decided to try out the Mars Volta. I found Frances the Mute in a used bin, picked it up, and was quite impressed. However, it's almost TOO frantic and busy for my tastes - as if they're trying to do everything at once and it just gets exhausting. Frances has a neat pace though (the album seems to take forever, which isn't a bad thing), with more long songs than you would think could fit on a CD. Supposedly it's a pretty experimental for them. I then got De-loused in the Comatorium, but have been unsuccessful so far in listening to that one. Just too much too soon. I'm saving it for when I'm more in the mood for that kind of stuff.

Bonny, re: Mr Bungle. I'm not crazy about California, and the first album really blew me away the first 20 times I first heard it but it sounds mostly annoying to me nowadays (all that carnival stuff kinda grates). Disco Volante, however, is by far my favorite and an avant-rock masterpiece.

feetlightup - 23-12-2008 at 22:20

Right now, I'm listening to a Magma show from 2002-05-04 in Wurzburg Germany. Magma makes some of the most spiritually uplifting music I've ever heard.

Before that, I listened to Kayo Dot's "Choirs of the Eye", which was recommended to me by pigs03 on the Zappa forum a couple of years ago. It still gets a lot of play, and it's really wonderfully powerful stuff.

TMV are BUSY, that's for sure. A good thing.

My personal opinion on Disco Volante is that it is my least favourite MB album. I like it alot, but compared to the other two, it comes third easily....

Mr Bungle's first does indeed tire me occasionally but I now only play it in a real festive mood. And it's GREAT music when you're juggling!

here's a link to an article on the struggle for women's rights in Iran.
http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=100039579
I heard it and remembered B's reading of Lolita and Alice in Wonderland, which is what this teacher has been teaching in Tehran.

BBP - 2-2-2009 at 22:51

I read a lot of articles like that... thing is, all is never what it seems there. For instance, the veils and kerchiefs have enabled women to go to college, which parents before would often forbid because of the contact with men. Nowadays there are more female than male students in Iran.
...which doesn't mean I think it's OK that women are beat up when they wear clothes that reveal anything besides hands, feet and face, while men only need to wear something to cover up the pelvis... or that women are legal adults at 9 while men are legal adult at 15...

punknaynowned - 3-2-2009 at 01:38

yes!
It's so interesting to me how different underlying assumptions about people (ourselves, each other) can have such far reaching and profound effects across a culture and then how different it seems to other cultures.
For instance, Mike Phelps the swimmer got in trouble here for getting caught on film smoking pot.
The underlying assumption of the culture here in the states is that it's illegal and dangerous: even knowledge of it (what it's like) it is thought, can be dangerous. But because there is this stigma to it, I think, more people who wouldn't normally try it, will try it like Phelps, simply because our culture looks down on it and they want to know for themselves what it's like.
Whereas in Holland, where it's legal, there seems to be more of a feeling that it's a waste of time that could be dangerous. But that's not the official cultural stance there. Just as your attitude or feelings about that issue is at odds with the wider (legislated) culture, Phelps wanted to try something (probably peer-pressured) that his wider culture has always been telling him not to do or think about.

So in Iran and Saudi Arabia et al, the cultural repression toward women is so deep that as you say, they have to wear head coverings in public or they'll get beat up for exhibiting that slip, that lax of male control. This on the face of it seems so at odds with western culture and yet stems from the same idea. Just a matter of how far it is taken and in which direction. They're both rigidly patriarchal societies.

The big breakthrough is with our minds. With knowledge or awareness of another point of view, there's no telling what people might do. That's where progress comes from.

I'm listening to http://www.marketplace.org . Never thought I'd ever pay this much attention to business and economic news. Glad I started a couple years ago.

Huck_Phlem - 3-2-2009 at 04:41

And they're trying to have a conversation over all this.

too many Jeff Buckley songs, in my opinion, of course my Top 100 would be very different, but I like half the songs in this list.

scallopino - 18-7-2009 at 06:42

Jeff Buckley is liked a lot here...Triple J really mourned him when he died and would often play memorial shows on the anniversary of his death and stuff. I think it's a pretty good list. Triple J is very much a youth station and the majority of the people who voted would be 25 and under. It's much broader than the other lists they've done, from 1989 and 1998. One reason is the internet and iTunes.

Not too bad a list. I'm too old to recognize about 1/3 of those songs, but I at least kinda like just about all the others to some degree. I do appreciate when such lists are the result of reader/listener polls, rather than some big-headed journalist offering his "objective" assessment. At least this way, it really does reflect a consensus, even if it's not my own.

Here's what I listen to when all other music just tires me and I need to drift away into oblivion. Like now, for example:

The list has been pretty controversial because of what it doesn't contain: many black artists, many Australian artists, much hip hop, and no female artists at all. But again, it's hard to criticise it for these things since it's a listener poll, and a poll not for what they think are the BEST songs necessarily, but their favourites. Some people couldn't believe there was no Bjork or PJ Harvey for example, but it's hard to believe that these artists would be more popular than almost all of the artists that made the list. I'm sure they got huge numbers of votes but not enough for one particular song for it to make the list.

I just received the new album from the Adrian Belew Power Trio. It's called "e."

It's pretty chewy stuff: definitely not for beginners.

But it's cool. Julie and Eric Slick have really invigorated Adrian's playing. Believe it or not, he'll be sixty this year (older than Julie and Eric put together).

I'm dying to get that album. I'm familiar with the title track because they previewed it on tour. If that song's any indication of what's on the album, it should be a doozy.

Gosh, Vista is really stopping my listening-to-music-while-on-the-PC. Microsoft decided to drop that cute little CD player they had and went for the hideous PackardBell Home Theatre, which is highly unstable and EATS diskspace. Plus it looks hideous. Kinda like my website.

Cheap Thrills, on Greasy Love Songs. Ill write a review on it. For starters it's interesting that I let CwRatJ vinyl at record stores when it was priced at 20 euros (never found it for less) and bought this at more than 30.

MTF - 6-6-2010 at 07:59

I think it's worth 30 euros. The sound is spectacular, and the artwork is excellent.

I'm absolutely adoring that Japanese album I bought, Withering To Death by Dir En Grey. Sound is a bit Mr Bungle / Faith No More style. There's something very disarming about Japanese grunting. Not to mention when they try to sing in English and you can't make out what they say without lyrics booklet. (it being Japanese, I even have a hard time using the lyrics booklet.)

I love this song on it, it's weird. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LouSCeSRUWg
(The high voice sings "ominous communication" and you may hear "bless you").

Good 'un!

Still keeping absolute Zappa silence and find myself switching between Peter Maxwell Davies' Resurrection, Dir En Grey and the new Caro Emerald. Yesterday I decided to look out for Habanera recordings. FZ infamously made me cross by recording it without the prominent triplets in the melody line, taking all the sex out. Dweezil made me even crosser by recording it without the prominent triplets with an ear-piercing sound, destroying the luscious yet simple melody all the while nagging about "composer's intent".
Discovered that one of the main versions I'd often play, is actually very horrible with scratchy triangles and screeching violins.

Daylight savings kicked in under the cover of darkness at 2:00am this morning, removing one whole hour from our weekend.....

If they weren't giving us Monday off, I'd be protesting at the government's flagrant theft of our time.....:freak:

with only bird song for ambiance.....

We're a little comfortably numb this morning, last night's wild ginger beer consumption may have been a factor, and also have something to do with our late arrival to the maroon sofa this morning.....

Out in the valley it's very calm in comparison with barely a breath of wind,

This is why we are deep deep deep in the cave where it's closer to 22°C (35.6°F) and also where,

Tonight we're beginning our programme with arguably the most expensive single CD on the rack at: NZ$375.80 including tax.....

This is the complementary CD that came with the George Thorogood and the Destroyers concert tickets,
for the concert we didn't attend due to Covid-19 numbers spiking in the city that week.....

As an aside, I got a text on the night asking if we were attending, I responded explaining our situation
(old 'n' scared), and they came back requesting an address to send a concert goody bag too!.....

Our seasonal (now you see me now you don't) pond reappeared overnight, complete with one tiny duck.....

The coffee's hot and the fire is smoldering, let's give little Ronnie Random a shove and keep an eye on that duck.....

Survived Sober October, now we're onto No Booze November.....
What's next, No Piss Till Christmas.....

Last night the little woman requested Genesis.....
little Ronnie random countered with Bad Company which
I was unaware was on the data base, I'm beginning to suspect
albums are being, or have been added by parties unknown.....
Joe 90's going to look into it upon his next visit.....
I have my suspicions.....

Okay Ronnie, what's it going to be?



It's a bit early for the red bulb - black light - fog machine combo.....


GrayGhost - 1-11-2022 at 08:21






GrayGhost - 1-11-2022 at 09:25



Sooooo, I own this on vinyl, never had the cd, or a download.....
So how is this on the in-cave PC? maybe I've been dekcah, hacked in
reverse, they're putting music into the PC.....
If it disappears, I'll know, a lil' Puty lookalike has been laundering obscure music through my programme,
or maybe it's just been little Ronnieski Randomovitch alllll along.....

It's been blowing a roof lifting gale in the city for most of the day, with hellish bursts rain.....

Right now, deep in the valley it's as fine as fine can be, the late sun is blasting in, birds
singin' it's paradise I tell ya' paradise.....

Here's one for our oppressed brothers and sisters wherever they may be.....

Good evening citizens and welcome to what has been a gorgeous Wednesday awaaaaay on down in paradise.....

I had such a deeply bogus day at the coalface yesterday, that once I actually made it back to down town cave central,
I curled up in a ball and slept through till this morning's alarm.....

Maybe I'm depressed.....

Good morning earthlings and welcome to a spectacular Saturday morning awaaaaay on out in the valley.....

Up bright and early in anticipation of getting called into work, spent some quality time in the kitchen feeding my face
a little too much, I'm probably good till tonight plus I didn't have to work yaaaaay.....

Tis means steeling myself for a trip up the coast to support Joe-90 with a visit to couple of the difficult folks in an effort

Good evening citizens and welcome to what has been a hot 'n' windy Monday awaaaaay on out in the valley.....

The day in on and around the coalface was unusually relaxed for a Monday,
aside from one of the owners having to fill in for a man who could not work,
due to still being intoxicated from a party that began on Saturday.....

The same person, failed to turn-up a couple of weeks ago, he drank himself into a stupor
celebrating a rugby team getting a win.....

Thanks mate, you're a star, Christmas bonus amounts are being formulated as we speak.....


We have the lovely late sun blasting in till around eight thirtyish,
illuminating some undusted areas in the bowels of the cave.....

Joe 90's leaf-blower/extractor-fan combo idea, maybe getting a test.....

Feeling a little nostalgic lounging on the maroon sofa tonight.....

Another day of absenteeism among the troops, this happens every

As opposed to the official start date of: Saturday, December the 24th.....

We're deep in talks regarding when to commence our Christmas/New Year 22/23 Zappadan.....
FZ's birthday, the first day of the holidays, which is the 23rd/24th this year or Christmas day.....
There was even some loose talk about December 1st or the anniversary of FZ's death,
both of which are now moot.....

Myself, I want to get started ASAP.....

Good evening citizens and welcome to a stormy Friday night awaaaaay on down in paradise.....

That's right, summer is over, we had a week or so, and now winter is back baby.....

It was fun in the morning, the rain was soft and warm.....

By midday a freshly refrigerated southerly blast turned that rain to ice,

the office cooled down fast, the emergency thermal underwear was deployed and the winter jacket donned,

I held off on the FZ Beanie, until about 2:00.....

Made it home to a roaring fire, which was nice, but may have been a little over th' top kneejerk reaction to the wintery weather surprise.....

The valley is topographically sheltered and will take a day or two to chill right out, unless we get that rarest of beasts, the direct hit.....

But, until then, our wet weekend starts now.....

Good afternoon earthlings and welcome to a scorching Tuesday afternoon awaaaaay on out in the valley.....

Awoke to the sounds of lawns being mowed, weeds being whacked and
gazebos being built, so we went to the beach.....

A good time was had by all, want to look like Robinson Crusoe.....
Just add sea water, twenty minutes in the surf and I looked like
I'd been shipwrecked for a decade.....
Once again calling into question my current hairiness.....

It was beautiful around 6:00am, birds singing not a cloud in the sky,
here we are a couple of hours later with thundery thunder and torrential rain.....

We're still sitting on around 20°C so the valley's steaming, with visibility down to maybe 10 Metres.....

Regretfully I must shelve the outdoor chores of the day and resume my position on the maroon sofa
for more of our Christmas/New Year Zappadan '22 ↔ '23.....

The storm that has been battering the north slipped down the island, largely
missing Wellington, we got a little rain from the edge as it passed us by…..
They've named it cyclone Hale, and it's now flooding the top of the South Island,

Climbed aboard the Ghostmobile for the commute and wow Jeff Beck's Somewhere Over the Rainbow

'Pandemonium': Elton John concert cancelled after torrential rain

thhti Auckland Reporters
21:01, January the 27th, 2023.



Concertgoers left Mt Smart after the Elton John show was cancelled at the last minute.

The Elton John concert was cancelled less than half an hour before he was set to take to the stage as torrential rain wreaked havoc across thhti Auckland.

Disappointed Elton John fans swarmed to leave Mt Smart stadium after news that the concert was cancelled at the eleventh hour.

"It's far too dangerous", a spokesperson said to the eagerly awaiting crowd.

The announcement was met with screams from the crowd, who were already in place for the concert.

The concert was set to be part of Elton’s ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour.

A statement posted on the concert organisers page read:

“Due to unsafe weather conditions, tonight’s Elton John concert for Friday 27 January will not be proceeding.

”The team is assessing things and will keep everyone across with further updates here. Thank you for your understanding.”



Elton John concert goers leave Mt Smart.

Concert-goer Susannah Shackel traveled from Wellington to attend the concert, and said it was 'appalling' for it to be cancelled so late.

"We left at about six, we spent $140 on an uber. Poor people were getting swept away at Mt Smart...
we get to the gate and they tell us it's cancelled and to go home," she said.

"For the organisers to drag it on, they knew what the weather was like...is appalling.
I'm in the uber now, we've driven through floods getting home.”

Shackel said it was “dangerous”.

“I don't care about the money. The danger that they've put people in...is pretty bad form."

Another concert goer, who did not wish to be named, also questioned why it had taken until everyone was in place
for the event oragnisers to make the call to cancel the show.

Stuff reporter Sapeer Mayron said that Ubers were cancelling on those trying to leave the stadium.

“Everyone is miserable and everyone's soaked,” Mayron said.



Elton John concert goers leave Mt Smart.

Stuff photographer Ricky Wilson, who was also at the concert, said there was “massive delays” for anyone trying to leave
and “severe” traffic congestion on the roads surrounding the stadium.

He said that all roads and footpaths around the venue were flooded.

“It’s pandemonium,” Wilson said.

Reporter Gabrielle McCulloch was picking up her boyfriend’s parents from the cancelled concert when she got caught in the storm.

"My small car was unable to get through. People are wading through the street as they left.

“In some places it's unclear where the road even ends,” McCulloch said.

This is the second time the legendary performer has had to cancel in Tāmaki Makaurau, (Māori for the hell hole that is Auckland)
after he was forced to cut off his show in 2020 after being diagnosed with walking pneumonia.

The singer broke down in tears during his 2020 thhti Auckland show, leaning on the piano before leaving the stage altogether.

When he attempted to start singing his famous song "Daniel", he couldn't talk.

The shows were then postponed until 2023 due to Covid-19.

He is still set to play Mt Smart on Saturday.

Joe-90 survived the storm, the standard route to the hotel was impassable,
so he had to detour and deviate his way up down and round and round, getting himself lost a couple of times,
but made it back in pretty good shape. The usually forty to fifty minute trip took Joe-90 on his folding bicycle,
three and a half hours…..

The headlines coming out of Auckland this morning are pretty dire,
Homes damaged, evacuations as flood chaos hammers Auckland…..
Auckland Airport closed, 200 passengers trapped for hours on a plane at the airport…..
Residents report chest high flooding…..

Around midnight they were talking about calling a state of emergency, it didn't happen,
but they'll re-evaluate this morning with the knowledge that another storm is due today…..

But until then…..

Todays cartoon featuring Mayor Wayne Brown…..

For context: "Auckland mayor Wayne Brown texted his friends that he couldn’t play tennis
over the weekend because he had to “deal with media drongos over the flooding”, it’s been reported."




Mayor Brown has been in the job three or four months and has steadfastly avoided the media, having a spokesperson do the talking…..

His predecessor was seldom out of the public eye…..

Now that he's been forced to front the media the reason has become clear, he's a grumpy old man
with zero people skills/media training…..

During his campaign he was angry about the state of the hell hole that is Auckland,
angry about the roads the rail the ports the airport angry angry angry
and, after a game of tennis, he was going to fix it!

He was warning the top council executives if he became mayor they had better resign before he fired them…..
An empty threat, NZ employment law would stand in his worship the mayors way…..

Folks thought this was campaign Wayne, as it turns out, he's just an angry man…..

The prime minister, as a vote of confidence in mayor Wayne, has created the position of a Minister of Auckland…..

The opposition fat cat national party will be screaming in unison on tomorrow's 6:00am news…..

Until then…..

The North got more rain and it isn't over. Thhti Auckland largely escaped the worst of the second storm,
with minimal impact on the already saturated city, with some districts still in disarray…..

Click Here for Photos

As the water is soaking in there have been more landslides destroying a number of homes, around 180 are deemed
too dangerous to enter and a further 700ish accessible but uninhabitable.

The folks that are really freaking out are the insurance companies…..

thhti Auckland has extended their state of emergency for another week and included the Coromandel,
the river of rain that passed through last week stalled and came back around for another go.

The number of uninhabitable homes is up to around 2,000 and counting…..

A lot of displaced folks looking for emergency housing that's scarce as hens teeth,
the whole region has been in a housing shortage for a couple of years.

His worship the mayor champagne Wayne, is still apologising for his perceived lack of visible response to the flooding and delay
in calling a state of emergency.

He's actually doing media standups and may have had a little guidance in the art.....

It's come out that he fired off a text asking all officials to leave any and all comments regarding the flood and flood recovery to the him.....

Good Morning - brought a $2 second hand tape of ELO Out of the Blue (second shop only had tape No2)- played nice in my NAK RX202 until it got to the end of the side and the tape unspooled itself into the machine lol - no damage done to the Nak but the ELO tape is toast ;) Thinking the old tape leader had unglued itself :biggrin: At least it was not one of my original Zappa tapes eg Chunga and JABFLA :biggrin: However Just looking online now maybe I should not have thrown it in the bin as Discogs and Fleabay say it worth $40 to $80 bucks :freak:

Nothing doing at the coalface, sent home a couple of hours early…..

The government have issued a national state of emergency as tropical cyclone Gabrielle continues to march down the island
causing havoc at every turn.

Around 250,000 homes are without power, overnight two homes collapsed in a land slide at the very moment the fire brigade
were inside checking them for flood damage. One fireman was hospitalised they're still searching for a second…..

In the late 70's the valley was flooded from six to eight feet deep throughout, over the years since there's been extensive
flood remediation work carried out, but…..

We are banking on the local topography sending most of the storm down the east coast…..

But, until then…..

downtown cave central was six feet under…..

They still have the tide marks on the school flag pole…..

Unfortunately further north the devastation is mind blowing, the death toll is now four and counting.

Gray Kat and I followed the link to the flood pictures and we were amazed at the Biblica proportions of the damage, while we had some extreme rain and floods for 3 weeks in California (Nor Cal received 500% of a normal wet winters rain in that period) that damages while severe did not rival what your country got.


It could be due to the fact that the central valley especially in the Sacramento are and surrounding counties we are in a flood plain and therefore have incredibly extensive, large , and modernized levee systems to handle the water. But as we all know these can get overwhelmed as good as they are and they did but held up for the most part.

Oh man it's pretty shocking, there's a lot of harrowing stories coming out, the death toll is now 8.

We know most of these devastated places really well, and no longer recognize the television footage
or pictures of many.

It's going to take years for some places to fully recover, if ever.

We have around a dozen folks that we can't contact, but as the power's out taking the phone network
with it in their particular localities, we're hoping for the best.

Our man on the ground, Mr. T is equipped with Joe 90's sat' phone and astride his "adventure" motorcycle
is, as we speak weaving his way up country to check on a couple of the couples…..

There have been a large number of preemptive evacuations, with civil defense already activated throughout the land

Good evening citizens and welcome to a blustery Wednesday night awaaaaay on out in the valley…..

An horrendous day of attempting to assist the unassistable,
whilst questioning the choices of a life time that have delivered
me to this time and place…..

Made it to the maroon sofa a little later than I would have liked…..
Tonight's nasi goreng was spectacular and sooooo hot it may have
burned out the flu remnants that have been a blight on our
in cave serenity…..

Let's give little Ronnie random a shove and see what happens…..

Good evening citizens and welcome to what has been a cruisy Thursday awaaaaay on out in the valley…..

A little late to the sofa this evening, spent a couple of hours playing around on Joe 90's new playstation virtual reality game.

A bit of driving a bit of shooting, it was sooooo good, the damn thing made my credit card scream…..

Definitely a big step up from the vr systems of old…..

Let's get down to business…..

Good evening citizens and welcome to a glorious Friday night awaaaaay on out in the valley…..

I'm sooooo glad it's Friday, the week was long 'n' tough…..

We've had a request to call in on the hippies up the coast tomorrow, this never happens…..
To spare the little woman any anxiety I've withheld the summons, and subtly suggested a mini road trip…..
Visit the beach, first swim of autumn, check out the orchard, drop in on the hippies…..I can hardly wait…..

Until then, our weekend starts now…..

It appears one of three things happened here to Gray Ghosts listening schedule...:puzzled:


1) Him and the Little Lady never returned from the coastal Hippie adventure possibly absorbed into the community...:shocked:





2) His ineffective third world kerosene record player ran out of spunk due to the supply chain shortages...:shocked:





3) He had so much fun he pulled a Rip Van Winkel on the coach...:shocked:





BTW - That was as close as I could get to a maroon sofa and trust me I looked....:lol:

There is some good reason for the good grey ghost to return here from his coastal Hippie adventure: Genevieve Artadi has finally released her new album and put it onto youtube: Forever Forever
The sickest song is visualized in a quite unique video: Genevieve Artadi - 'Plate' (Official Video)
