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.

I’ve been trying to reunite myself with this record, Bush Baby by Arthur Blythe, for a long time.

The Hellcows on the blogosphere.

September 10, 2007

The Hellcows were one of my favorite bands to see in Portland in the late eighties, they had a very original approach to noisy art-school postpunk with lots of personality. The only thing that I didn’t like about them was that they hated my band, I mean really hated my band, and loved to talk smack about us onstage. Anyway, someone put their first EP and split single with Smegma up on a blog. Good times.


Kletka Red may no longer exist, but they made more records than I thought.

I bought and enjoyed Hijacking when it came out in 1996. Definitely the most transformational of the nineties Klezmer activity (excluding Charming Hostess for having a more catholic-with-a-small-c concept of Jewish music and for dabbling in goy tuneage), well-informed by punk, Beefheart, and improv. Then I didn’t hear anything about them until I came across this blog post (via), which tells me that they made another record, Hybrid, before Soybelman hung it up, linking to free lo-fi downloads and the reissue available for sale, and also some YouTube (that’s a YT link, natch).


Dude, free metal.
