The Soundtrack To My Life. 09/04/2014.

WOW

Record: “Werewolves On Wheels” (OST).
Year: 1971.
Artist: Don Gere.

I discovered this music and then later, the film, through Rob Zombie. I think ol’ Rob gets a lot of inspiration from “Werewolves On Wheels”. As a film, it didn’t really do a lot for me because I was expecting lots of Werewolves. On wheels! And well, there’s not a lot of that but the soundtrack is great!

Listen To This…

BO

Record: “Blatantly Offenzive”.
Year: 1978.
Artist: Wayne County & The Electric Chairs.

I have no idea how I found out about this band.

Listen To This…

At Home

Record: “At Home”.
Year: 1969.
Artist: Shocking Blue.

Shocking Blue. I definitely discovered these folk through Nirvana’s cover of ‘Love Buzz’ on their album, ‘Bleach’. Apparently, Shocking Blue didn’t care much for that cover version.

IH

Record: “In Heaven”.
Year: 1981.
Artist: The Meteors.
Listen To This…

BTS

Record: ‘Perfect From Now On’.
Year: 1997.
Artist: Built To Spill.

A pal of mine recommended Built To Spill for me when i mentioned that I was on the lookout for bands that sounded like Grandaddy.

TSC

Record: ‘The Stray Cats’.
Year: 1981.
Artist: The Stray Cats.
Listen To This…

MR

Record: ‘Mozart’s Requiem, K626′.
Year: 1992?
Artist: Sir George Solti & The Wiener Philharoniker Orchestra.
Listen To This…

Back In The Game

Record: “Back In the Game”.
Year: 2011.
Artist: Satan & Adam.

Satan & Adam. I fucking love these guys! I only got into them last year or so. I’d never heard of them before! Except, I actually had! I just didn’t know it. You know that clip in U2′s movie, “Rattle & Hum”, of the two guys jamming out on the street as U2 walk past? Yep. That’s Satan & Adam!

And Here It Is…

bIG rIVER

Record: ‘Big River’ (7″ Vinyl Single).
Year: 2010.
Artist: Secret Sisters (Featuring Jack White)

On my continuing and endless search for new music, I found myself delving into the signed artists on Jack White’s Third Man Records label. I love Pokey LaFarge, The Black Belles and Beck etc… so that seemed like a good way to find new music. That’s how I found the Secret Sisters. They sound a bit like The Chordettes to me.

HB

Record: ‘Ocean Floor’ (7″ Vinyl Single).
Year: 2010.
Artist: Hell Beach.
Listen To This…

SBS

Record: “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath”.
Year: 1973.
Artist: Black Sabbath.
Listen To This…

Unknown

Record: ‘The Bootleg Series Vol. 10. Another Self Portrait (1969-1971). (Deluxe Edition).
Year: 2013.
Artist: Bob Dylan.

A lotta of Dylan fans don’t like his ‘Self Portrait’ album very much. As a matter of fact, a lot that I’ve spoken to don’t like his ‘Nashville Skyline’ album much either. I think those folk are nuts. I’ve ALWAYS loved that period!
‘I Threw It All Away’? Loved it. ‘Country Pie’? Loved it. ‘All The Tired Horses’? Love it. ‘Alberta’? Love it. ‘Days Of ’49′? I fucking love it. I fucking love it all, understand?

This latest Bootleg Series album is a MUST as far as I’m concerned and if you go for the ‘Deluxe’ version, you’ll get the previously hard to find 1969 Isle Of Wight Concert Bob did with The Band.

Glasgow: Walking After Midnight.

For the past week, I’ve found myself wide awake at 3am every morning. Maybe it’s my age or something.

I usually just get up and go out and walk around town for a couple of hours and then go back home. This morning I took my camera out with me.

Excuse the blurry ones but it was 3 in the morning…

The Soundtrack To My Life. 14/02/2014.

SM

Record: “Saint Max Is Missing And The Fanatics Are Dead” (2013).
Artist: Saint Max And The Fanatics.
I caught this band live by chance in Glasgow last year because they were supporting Son Of Dave. Kind of like a happy, ska version of The Smiths, they are one of those bands who sound much better live than they do on record. Not that this isn’t a fine album y’understand. It’s just that it’s better to be pogoing with hundreds of other people at the time when you’re listening to Saint Max And The Fanatics.
Standout Track…

MFW

Record: “The Men From W.O.M.B.L.E.” (2013).
Artist: Alabama 3.
Well, I never saw this coming. It’s a great record! But I just didn’t see it coming. I can’t find any music videos just yet so here’s a little bit about the album from Alabama 3 themselves…

Morning Phase

Record: “Morning Phase” (2014).
Artist: Beck.
To me, this sounds like the kind of movie soundtracks that Badly Drawn Boy comes out with. Which is by no means a bad thing at all. I love Badly Drawn Boy’s soundtracks. It’s just that THIS IS BECK we’re talking about here and this is definitely not “Mutations”.
Sample Track…

BD

Record: “The Big Dream” (2013).
Artist: David Lynch.
I really like David Lynch’s first album “Crazy Clown Time” and I did like this second one but as more of a background record. I listened to it last week as I was drawing a picture and got lost in it but the following day I listened to it through headphones as I walked around town and it bored me stiff. It’s one of those albums. You have to listen to it at the right time, under the right conditions. Like Neil Young’s “Tonight’s The Night”.album and like David Lynch’s work in general really.
Title Track…

CR

Record: “Croz” (2014).
Artist: David Crosby.
This is exactly like you’d imagine a David Crosby 2014 solo record to sound. It’s nice enough but it’s not this…

cage-the-elephant-4e600a5355c8a

Record: “Cage The Elephant” (2008).
Artist: Cage The Elephant.
Standout Track…
