Just stopping by…

…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…

…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.


I bloggeth not…

…but over here is one of my favorite records, Desert Equations: Azax Atra by Sussan Deyhim (myspace) and Richard Horowitz.

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.


News to me: B.F. Shelton existed.

July 31, 2008

And I’m glad he did.  He only recorded four songs, almost like he knew that after three quarters of a century he would exist only as a MySpace page.  Will appeal to fans of Doc Boggs.
