And can we once, just once, not have narky comments about fucked voice etc.
Disappointed that country music is a “boring brown”.
These days he edited a decent review of albums for Murdoch’s The Australian, occasional interview pieces with visiting musos and phone in stuff for indie radio shows. I had a few discussions with him usually debating the merits of a Dylan review and he was happy to reply.
As it happens, I will soon be seeing Ed Kuepper playing his Aints band doing Saints songs. Although Ed had left the Saints by then it will be a fitting tribute if he plays some stuff from that period.
Certainly got me interested.
This popped up next to the Polish(?) clip that HP posted which had MB laughing uproariously (digitally). I still don’t get it BTW. Talk about a clique.
Dylan did some sessions with David Bromberg then scrapped them as not being the sound he wanted. Never heard them before.
This was posted on the Afterworders on Facebook page.
I’m playing East West today just after watching this trailer
I’ve got an original 70’s Aussie pressing that is worn out . So that’s 3 strikes.
Amazon sells the CD new, used and collectable. The latter is the 2012 reissue from the analog tapes and apparently removes reverb blighting previous issues.
My question is, am I to relentlessly seek a 2012 remaster or are there better options and is it solely a “collectable” item or are Amazon having a lend?
I had these young blokes play my 60th in Feb. since then they have sold out everywhere got supports with major tours and soon to head overseas.
Blues in the classic sound of the Kings and soulfulOtis sounding voice.
There is a show in London at the Troubadour on Oct 25.
They have had some stinkers as pre game enterntainment – I’m looking at you Meatloaf, but the Killers nailed it. A great little set and good version of Midnight Oils’ “Forgottten Years”
I own an Aussie pressing and always was underwhelmed by cover. Are uk or American pressings just the same single sleeve ?
I’ve got a crook shoulder. I’m off to see my Chienese traditional Doctor. His name is Doctor Wu. Last time I took the cover of Katy Lied in. He was amused.
Any other examples?
Keyboardist for much of the Wailers music in record and concert.
Richmond have a huge supporter base despite their last flag being in 1980.
Unfortunately Mrs Wells is one of them.
There is a qualifying final for which my attendance has been declared mandatory. The game is on Friday and already 98000 tickets have been sold.
Does this happen elsewhere ?
I knew Wings went down to Lagos to record BOR but not that Macca was a fan with a collection of Fela records.
I didn’t see the point of reviewing this book , Sophisto-punk as it is from 2012. But for fans of classic Oz pub rock and,I guess, music production it was an interesting read.The book had a structure that other music books could do well to emulate, chronological chapters usually cetred round a classic album then with liberal quotes from others involved at the time giving their perspective. Opitz had a tough upbringing and then,as you could back then in the 70s, starting off with menial roles at the ABC – TV then getting lucky with roles he had no qualifications for provided him with massive opportunities.
He cut his teeth at Alberts working with Vanda and Young on the ACDC Bon Scott era albums, reputedly developed the “thick guitar sound” that characterised Oz pub rock which he showcased on the first Angels albums, Cold Chisel and INXS followed. Heaps of money, heaps of drugs A &R jobs etc.
Anyway I dog eared some pages with some stuff I thought interesting.
* The Angels broke the Master Apprentices record attendance at Brisbane’s Festival Hall. The Angels made $50 grand, the Masters Apprentices got $50.00. *Looking for inspiration for their second album, » Continue Reading.
Van’s recent album cover art really is an impressive contribution to his catalogue of shite covers but there are many contenders. So I’ve catalogued some of my personal favourites.
Of course, there are many that are just plain boringly repetitive: the silhouettes- The Man and Back on Top. Are they from the same photo shoot? Nay the same set of album cover possibles even? Then there are the close ups of Van usually sporting a sullen disposition: Into The Music or Keep It Simple. How about the pointlessness of Avalon Sunset? Couldn’t even come up with a clip art sunset! Veedon Fleece , a sublime album but how about them colours. I thought it might be in the style of a 30s postcard but that sounds a bit too clever for George Ivan’s covers.
What about twee ? Oh we’ve got twee. How about Magic Time , two people dancing, a cliched pose in a forest in the dark. Then there is Keep Me Singing with a drawing of a red robin. Geddit, bird’s sing. Gee that was brilliant ,not.
Born To sing, No Plan B perhaps not his worst cover but an appalling title as well really » Continue Reading.
@Mousey posted this on the noticeboard, a place I rarely visit, so it passed me by. He posted the vid on the Facebook Afterword life raft which is where I encountered it.
I think it is excellent so I’m repackaging it with a headline that Mousey would be far too modest to use.
Ordinarily I search for an image, choose save image option and save it in documents or downloads on my mac.
I then open imgur, choose browse option and select the relevant file, upload it get a URL and life is good.
Now I’m finding that when having done a search using google images and selected save image the images are now saved in a new google folder saved images. OK whatevs. But I can’t figure out how to select those files to upload to imgur, nor can I see an option to save the images onto my hard drive or transfer them from the Google saved images place. Life not so good.
Crawling from the wreckage I guess.
Or , the vinyl boom is over, or Gillian Welch and David Rawlings buy their own record cutting lathe.
