Just stopping by…

May 15, 2009

…to indicate a couple of sites, one for fans of old-time/country blues/folky stuff, and another for fans of the punk/new wave/no wave/post punk interphase.


Again with the other blogs

Specifically this Inconstant Sol post, atwhere you may download a live set from 1982 of an Arthur Blythe band with Bob Stewart on Tuba and Kelvyn Bell on guitar.


Still not an actual post…

April 21, 2009

…but I thought I’d let you know that someone has blogged Bright Phoebus by Mike and Lal Waterson, with Richard Thompson, which I previously mentioned obliquely.


Life is nuts, wot?

February 25, 2009

As you may have noticed (in my wildest dreams), I haven’t posted much lately.  Fortunately, it turns out there are other folks out there blogging, and sometimes they post stuff.  For example:

1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 6; 7; 8; 9;

This one‘s kind of a bummer, but why don’t you go ahead and read it anyway. The rest of the blog is alot more upbeat.


News to me: The Screamers existed.

September 17, 2008

They were an LA Eopunk band from the late 70’s that I just learned about at Din’s Bloggy, where Eric effuses:

There’s something so compelling and urgent about his [ vocalist Tomata du Plenty] presence, that watching him one can get the feeling that the speed of time passing has changed, that the parameters of perception have been messed with. Backed by distorted analog keyboards and no guitars, he howls and stalks the stage like a beat poet cross-bred with a hyena, frightening, exciting, dangerous and beautiful.

Go read his post and click his links, that’s all I got for you.


Another blog for your ample free time.

La Folie du Jour blogs really good music.


Wonderful Life.

It’s not just a popular science book about the Burgess Shale by Stephen J. Gould, it’s also the new blog of Mandy Heddle, microlepidoptera systematist, educator, and the woman whose merciless ridicule finally motivated me to read “Cryptonomicon” AND through whom I discovered Hedwig and the Angry Inch.  She’ll be wandering the earth for the next eight months, and I’ll be wandering it vicariously through her blog as time permits!
