This was the second collaboration between these two artists, the first being Sun Baked Snow Cave from 2005... For this 3LP live set Merzbow basically acts as a 4th member of Boris as they run through a great, heavy, feedback-soaked set while the master twiddles away... AMG refer to Merzbow (Masami Akita) as “the most important artist in Noise music”. Comments - OP’s and reissues are basically selling in the same range so just buy the first one you can find or just get the double CD for an extended and blissed-out 90 minute + spiral into the feedback void. Please hear it. #vinylrecords#vinylcollection#vinylcommunity#recordcollection#vinylpost#musiclover#rarevinyl#vinyladdict#vinyllove#recordstore#recordshop#vinyljunkie#hawkwind#cabaretvtaire#boris#merzbow#earth#acidmotherstempel#godspeedyoublackemperor#sleep#om#sunno))) #sunn0))) #venom#meltbanana#throbbinggristle

Top Albums of 2018 #13: Courtney Barnett - Tell Me How You Really Feel I’ve always been a pretty casual fan of Courtney Barnett. I saw her at Newport Folk Fest in 2015 and was pleasantly surprised by her set. The strength of her songwriting allowed her to fit right in, even though she was sonically different from the rest of the lineup. I never really got too into Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit. However, I instantly connected with Tell Me How You Really Feel. I loved “Nameless, Faceless” when it came out - the jangling guitars, the cutting lyrics. Once the album dropped, it simply felt like a continuation of something I already loved. Barnett’s songwriting is simple, but therein lies its power. There is so much character and cleverness to her lyrics. And all wound up in that is the fact that she makes music that is so dang relatable. I related to so much of this album in a way that I never expected to. If you are someone like me who was a marginal fan before, I highly suggest you give this album a go. What did you guys think of Courtney Barnett’s latest? . . . . #nowspinning#courtneybarnett#tellmehowyoureallyfeel#vinyl#lp#records#vinylrecord#vinylrecords#vinyligclub#vinylcommunity#vinylcollectionpost#instavinyl#vinyloftheday#vinylettes#vinyladdict#vinylnerd#vinyljunkie#recordcollection#vinylcollector#ilovediscogs#reverblp#33rpm
In on number 39 of my favorite albums of the year, is »Rolly Nice« by The Finks released on Milk! Records. Raging between a solo act and a five piece band, at the core though The Finks are a musical project around the beautiful songs of mastermind Oliver Mestitz. I saw him live this year for the first time as a support act for Jen Cloher at the Funkhaus in Berlin. Playing his songs solo only accompanied by an acoustic guitar, which highlighted his wonderful storytelling and gave the songs the intimacy of the album recordings. Swipe right for a little taste of the album.
My top 10 albums of the year - No. 7 Boarding House Reach by Jack White Solo album No.3 is where Jack White really released the shackles and let his imagination run wild. An album full of funk and hard rock mash ups and the best guitar work of JW post White Stripes career, The only thing that stopped this being higher in my list was the fairly pedestrian duo of songs at the end of the album. Unlike the previous album this one didn't feature any gimmicks, or did it? Well the vinyl version of the album contains up to 9 versions of Get In The Mind Shaft all with different lyrics in the spoken word part of the song...... So which one have you got? #jackwhite#thirdmanrecords#tmr#boardinghousereach#albumof2018#mytop10#albumsoftheyear#vinyl#vinylrecord#vinylcollector#vinylcommunity

Happy birthday to Sam Andrew, born on this day in 1941. Sam Houston Andrew III is best known as a founding member and guitarist for Big Brother and the Holding Company and Kozmic Blues Band. During his career as musician and composer, he had 3 platinum albums and 2 hit singles. His songs have been used in numerous major motion picture soundtracks and documentaries. As Big Brother and the Holding Company began to gel, Andrew brought many songs into the band. He has been a prolific songwriter all of his life, penning his 1st tune at the age of 6. His songs, "Call on Me" and "Combination of the Two" have been 2 of Big Brother’s most enduring classic tracks. Until his illness in early 2015 he continued in his original role as the musical director of the band. Janis Joplin was recruited by band manager Chet Helms to join Big Brother as lead singer on June 4, 1966. They soon landed a record deal, issuing their 1st album. In December of 1968, Andrew and Janis Joplin left Big Brother and the Holding Company to form the “Kozmic Blues Band.” After about 9 months and 1 album, “I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama!,” Andrew returned to Big Brother. Andrew was the Music Director of the musical “Love, Janis,” based on the life of Janis Joplin, written and directed by Randal Myler and based on the book by Laura Joplin of the same name. He died in San Francisco, California on February 12, 2015, following complications from open-heart surgery due to a heart attack suffered ten weeks prior. “I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama!” is a studio album from Janis Joplin, release on September 11, 1969. It was the 1st solo studio album Joplin recorded after leaving her former band, Big Brother and the Holding Company, and the only one released in her lifetime (“Pearl” was released three months after Joplin's death). Mike Bloomfield guests on guitar, on the tracks, "One Good Man," "Work Me, Lord" and "Maybe." #samandrew#janisjoplin#vinylcollector#33rpm
#nickdrake - Pink Moon ————————————————————- Yeah, I was introduced to this album by a Volkswagen commercial, but to my credit I bought the album - on CD, first, in the beach(es) at RPM when they still had a store there - instead of the car. The title track was what hooked me, but the whole album is hauntingly beautiful majestic melancholy and sadly his final musical statement prior to his early death two years later.
"I love it when you call me big poppa" Throw your hands in the air, if you'se a true player "I love it when you call me big pop-pa" To the honies gettin' money playin' niggas like dummies "I love it when you call me big poppa" If you got a gun up in your waist please don't shoot up the place (why?) 'Cause I see some ladies tonight that should be havin' my baby, baby #notoriousbig
