gibson bros. big pine boogie

big pine boogie - gibson bros. were a tight garage punk band with rockabilly revivalist tendencies, and big pine boogie is some of their earlier stuff. the whole album is great, but it peaks in the middle with 'thy burdens are greater than mine' through 'skull and crossbones.' they later collaborated with jon spencer on other material.

Kong's sound combines Shellac with a little Clockcleaner. Clean, heavy, occasionally plodding but ultimately worthwhile. THing

Gary Higgins - Seconds

The remarkable lost and rediscovered folk classic Red Hash is possibly my favorite album of all time. Gary Higgins, apparently completely unchanged by age, released this followup, Seconds, over thirty years later, and not a beat is missing.jldxgknklndg
fuck it, good album, buy it you idiots.

Novos Baianos & 2 Afro-Cuban Albums

Hey shitface cumsucking dickeaters!
Look how fucking happy all those dudes & ladies are on that album cover! Why? you might ask. Because you're an idiot who don't know shit from shit, sherlock! Lol, just jokin' mate, calm down, man.

In any case, in our last MPB installment, guess who was criminally not represented? Only the greatest band of all time, NOVOS BAIANOS. And Acabou Chorare is their masterpiece. I have no qualms saying that it's probably the best album of the 70's anywhere (cos I've listened to them all, I post on a blog ya know!).

So here's a selection of my 3 fave Novos Baianos albums:

Acabou Chorare (1972) (Mediafire)
Self-titled (1974) (Mediafire)

Caia na Estrada e Perigas Ver (1976) (Mediafire)

And just cause I feel really nice, here are two fantastic Afro-Cuban albums, one of them called "Afro-Cuban." Holy shit, Bono!

Kenny Dorham - Afro-Cuban (1955) (Mediafire)
Ray Barretto - Acid (1968) (Mediafire)

DJ Cryme - Volume 1

Here's a blend mix I found and uploaded at the request of plogo & lildanzig. I made this back in 2002, and i re-listened to the first 3 tracks and I'm actually kinda surprised at how decent it is. There are definately some backpacker '17 yr old hiphop fan' trappings in here, but that's because I was a 17 yr old hiphop fan when I made it. It's totally taking me back to hits and other shit from 01/02 that I obsessed over.

Razor X Productions - Killing Sound

Everyone has the horn for the bug, but I didn't see this in the megapost, and it's my favourite stuff he's done. Produced with the rootsman, mc's include Cutty Ranks, Daddy Freddy and the Mexican, as well as an early collab with Warrior Queen. Really harsh and distorted dancehall, proper rad. CD 2 is the instrumental versions. Peace.

GREYMACHINE - Disconnected

GREYMACHINE - Disconnected

GREYMACHINE is the new project of justin broadrick of jesu/godflesh/final et al. along with aaron turner from isis and the two other guys from jesu. as gay as that sounds this shit actually owns really fucking hard. honestly this might be some of the best stuff justin's ever put out. this record is every bit as brutal as the early SWANS albums, mixed with some dub and noise influence. listen to the sample track 'vultures descend' on myspace to get an idea of how much this shit rules. and that's not even the best track on the album.

this record has my vote for best of 09 so far.

Marion Brown - Porto Nova (1968)

Dynamic, energetic, slightly melancholic free jazz from one of the genre's finest and sadly most overlooked alto saxophonists. The production on this record is a little weird, mixing Hans Bennink's admittedly excellent drumming ahead of everything else, but the quality of the music more than makes up for it. An oft-ignored classic.

Porto Nova


Here's a cool album (I'm not positive if it's a compilation or not) by an African Guy named Geraldo Pino, who the great Fela Kuti himself cited as an enormous influence and inspiration for his musical output. It shows, you can definitely hear a lot of the elements that would come to make Afrobeat what it was sort of coalescing on Heavy Heavy Heavy. It's generally funky as hell and there's even some psych rocky stuff going on. Even completely disregarding how highly Fela thought of him and its infulence on future music, this is just some killer stuff and a great collection of songs just on its own merit.

hi :)
so theres this guy most of you probably know as superstar dubstep producer The Bug. his name's Kevin Martin. he has a goatee in a lot of his promo pics (see fig. 1). it seems like a lot of ppl dont realize that he's been very prolific through the 90s and early 00s in genres other than (and many that influenced) dubstep. so i decided i'd share some of his other projects w/ yall.


this project has a name that has aged very poorly but it's still cool! people describe it as industrial hip-hop but i think that applies mostly to just the earlier albums which had a very tense, industrial atmosphere. this album, Brotherhood of the Bomb, has really fuckin heavy bass and features collaborators such as Justin Broadrick of Godflesh and Jesu, Vast Aire, and the dudes from Dälek.

[2001] Brotherhood of the Bomb


sick free-jazz-influenced doomy industrial metal. with justin broadrick on guitar and john zorn doin his shit. two albums here: 1992's "Possession", and 1994's "The Anatomy of Addiction". Possession is a lot more droning and sparse, while the tracks on Anatomy of Addiction feel more like songs. if you have even a passing interest in doom metal or jazz metal or heavy industrial shit like Swans, check this out.

[1992] Possession

[1994] The Anatomy of Addiction


ice is like the halfway point between GOD and Techno Animal. lots of hip-hop and dub influence, but with the whole industrial noise shit and heavy sludgy guitars. another very cool project, and once again justin broadrick is a collaborator.

1991 - Under the Skin

King Snake Roost - Three Albums

These are the only LPs that KSR released, though they had other tracks on comps and some singles. Australian noise rock band, they ripped out an amazing, pounding sound that easily hangs with the best AmRep stuff (their first two records were released on Abberrant, but then re-released on AmRep, along with their last). From Barbarism to Chrisian Manhood isn't full of truly classic material like the other two records, but still good.

Laddio Bolocko

Noisey, occasionally dreamy experimental rock. Some songs are almost instantly accesible, but skip around a bit or else the charm of a 30+ minute wave of distortion and percussion might be lost.... Some almost pure noise parts, a lot of jazz influence, and a heck of a lot of summer fun!

Summer Mixtape

I've been making a summer mixtape for a while, but at the rate I am going I will not finish until the summer is over. Here is an old one I made, it did some Dumb Things on it, but I'm still keen on the track selection. blam

Summer mixtape

Stealing a friend's mixtape from facebook.

1. Can I Kick It—A Tribe Called Quest
2. Player’s Ball—Outkast
3. Nuthin But A G Thang—Dr. Dre ft. Snoop Dogg
4. Stay Cool—The Roots
5. Hey Zulu—Method Man and Redman
6. Pennies—Cool Kids ft. Ludacris and Bun B
7. The Pimp and The Bun—UGK ft. Ron Isley
8. If That’s How You Feel—Z-Ro
9. International Player’s Anthem—UGK ft. Outkast
10. Georgia—Prynce
11. Gorgeous—Gucci Mane
12. Jupiter’s Critic and The Mind of Mars—DJ Quik and Kurupt



I know a lot of people probably look at my whole thing with Mandarin-language music and the bands I'm constantly splurging about and go "oh yeah look it's another indie band cribbing the western indie formula. cool, how exciting." That's probably a valid assessment of certain bands, but Bad Daughter's second and final album is not just good among Taiwanese indie pop, it's hands down one of the best indie pop records I've ever heard. Every song on this album is pretty much perfectly constructed, the sentimentality is never laid on too thick, and despite some of the tracks being relatively long for pop songs, they never overstay their welcome. There hasn't been an indie pop record this good out of Taiwan since it was released in 2003 and unfortunately this was Bad Daughter's final record before disbanding in 2006. So listen to it because it is amazing ok.

People - People(1994)

People was an Israeli death/grind/other stuff band from Israel. They formed in 1992, recorded this demo in 1994, broke up, then as far as I know never participated in any other projects. The demo is a comedy mashup of death/grind and some bizarre samples. To my ears, it's similar to Dripping - Disintegration Of Thought Patterns... only without trying to be serious. It's also sort of reminiscent of some of the stuff that Czech bands like Contrastic and Four Seats For Invalides put out more recently. Listen to this if you want some laughs.

People - People(1994)

Les Calamités - C'est complet

Les Calamités were a group of teenage girls who made french pop tracks during the 1980s in a yé-yé/60s English pop style, including covers of 'the kids are alright', 'teach me to shimmy', and 'the boy from new york city'. This cd collects their entire 16-song catalogue, with their minor hit in the French charts, 'Velomoteur', full of infectious, naive, happy pop fun.


M.O.P. - Best Of/Rarities.

Hey yall. I was plowing through some of my archives and I found these homemade M.O.P. compilations I made back as a young cryme in 2002. If you aren't familiar with M.O.P. they are the hardest and realest in the biz, and these comps have some of their best work. If you are familiar with them, these comps have a few rarities/b-sides/compilation tracks/remixes that you probably haven't heard (including some dumb Handle Ur Bizness mix i made that alternates between the original version and the primo remix). All of it bangs, so grab this shit!

These three albums are quite different but all have elements of punk and pop in them; while ALL has even been referred to as "orthodox pop-punk" I don't think any of them sound much like each other, or like pop-punk is "supposed" to sound. Definite rock influence in Chisel (featuring Ted Leo of Ted Leo And The Pharmacists) and hardcore influence in Hellbender (featuring Al Burian of Milemarker/Burn Collector zine).

The ALL record is a live album of mostly their best stuff. This was Hellbender's 2nd album; I haven't heard the first (eponymous) album and didn't like the "indie" (1998 incarnation of the word) direction of their followup (final) album, Con Limon, quite as much. This is Chisel's first record of two and I don't have the other one, think I'll get that now.

Uh yeah anyway three records that I reacquired recently and wanted to share that's all is that so wrong.

ALL "Trailblazer"

Hellbender "Footprint Of The American Chicken"

Chisel "8 AM All Day"

S.O.B. More Japanese Hardcore

Compared to Death Side, S.O.B. is heavier, angrier, and noiser. More great Japanese hardcore from the late 80s and early 90s.

Death Side - Japanese Hardcore

Death Side is Japanese hardcore from the late 80s and early 90s. Fast, heavy, angry music, these albums might sound familiar if you know Paintbox, another project some of the members joined.

Beefeater and Hammerhead

Precise hardcore/post-hardcore. Should appeal to fans of Minutemen.

Hammerhead is noise rock. Zenith Factory is probably their best song, and duh, the big city has a noiser, less straightforward and driving sound than into the vortex. 


For those unfamiliar with him, Moondog was one of the most unique, and enigmatic musical figures of the twentieth century. He lived as a street musician in New York for 20 years, dressing only in his homemade clothes, an homage to Thor, and playing instruments he created.
His music can be described as a mix of classical and Jazz, with occasional spoken word poetry. You have to hear it to appreciate how amazing it is.

A few collections of his recordings:
Moondog (1969)
More Moondog/Story of Moondog
Moondog (1959)

Cherubs - Heroin Man

Cherubs released some great albums, and Heroin Man is no exception. This is hard, heavy noise rock, and though it's not one of my favorite albums, it's difficult to not appreciate the level of brutality these guys achieved on tracks like Wornout Balls. There's definite trance elements on this album; many songs are structured with a deep, pounding noise/sludge background and built up with slight variations and freakin' angry vocals. Weird, wild.

Los Super Elegantes - Channelizing Paradise

ok their website makes a few things pretty clear about these guys (well, girl and guy and backing band):
-they aren't a band, they are an 'International art performance and music group.'
-they might take themselves a bit too seriously

but whatever, it's good pop with some 'latin' feel. i dont know how to describe music, listen to it on their website instead (second album on the page). i recommend the waves (no not wavves), its my favorite.
and download it here

heres an article on them in nylon click

Deadguy - Fixation On A Coworker

Continuing with the metalcore theme, here's Deadguy, who gets namedropped a lot in conjunction with a few other bands but definitely had a unique sound from the staples of the genre. This album came out on Victory(!) and was anything but characteristic of the "Victory Sound" at the time. Heavy later-era Black Flag influence, esp. in the vocals, and bands like Human Remains (who shared members) and Dillinger Escape Plan clearly took some cues from these guys. A term that was once used was "chaotic hardcore". This is their only real full-length, afterward two members split to form Kiss It Goodbye (two Deadguy EPs were later recorded with other members).

(Victory, 1995)

Cave In - Beyond Hypothermia

First Cave In album. Actually it's a collection of their early EPs and whatnot. This is that good metalxxxcore shit, not very fast but super moshy and...metally. I thought I might have lost perspective and misremembered it as being owns, but I listened to it today and it Owns.
(Hydra Head, 1998)

youve got FOETUS on you're breath

Hi. So i'm seeing that a lot of phiz has not been exposed to this lil fella by the name of James George Thirlwell, aka Jim Foetus, aka Clint Ruin, aka about a million other pseudonyms used over the past thirty years or so. He is in my opinion the greatest heroin success story of all time, having single-handedly created some of the most fascinating, challenging, and fun music under the 'industrial' umbrella. And I do mean single-handedly -- nearly all of his studio work is done solo.

Anyway i thought i'd share what i think are his three greatest albums: Hole, Nail and Thaw. Each brings together several different styles and genres, ranging from surf-rock to orchestral to manic industrial-tinged big-band. can't think of anything else to say here, so check 'em out!

[1984] Hole (2007 Remaster)

1) Clothes Hoist [3:25]
2) Lust For Death [3:38]
3) I'll Meet You In Poland Baby [4:50]
4) Hot Horse [3:31]
5) Sick Man [4:15]
6) Street Of Shame [3:28]
7) Satan Place [3:22]
8) White Knuckles [4:31]
9) Water Torture [3:50]
10) Cold Day In Hell [5:28]

[1985] Nail (2007 Remaster)

01) Theme From Pigdom Come
02) The Throne Of Agony
03) !
04) Pigswill!
05) Descent Into The Inferno
06) Enter The Exterminator
07) DI-1-9026
08) The Overture From Pigdome Come
09) Private War
10) Anything (Viva!)

[1988] Thaw

04) English Faggot / Nothin Man
05) Hauss-On-Fah
06) Fratricide Pastorale
07) The Dipsomaniac Kiss
08) Barbedwire Tumbleweed
09) ¡Chingada!
10) A Prayer For My Death

dot(.) Doom/Sludge

Downloaded the Electric Weedland demo and it was frickin' heavy, so I decided to get a few more from dot(.) Crushing into pulp your internet desires... dot(.) is Japanese doom with some sludge. More toward the doom side than sludge.  Electric Weedland is my pick of these two.

Larry Levan

A ton of Disco mixed by the Legend himself. Not everything he did, but close enough. I'll complete the collection with my own vinyl later.


Monday, May 4, 2009


Here's (almost) everything J Dilla produced for other people. I'll upload his solo stuff later but y'all probably have it
