The Birthday Party- Complete John Peel Sessions

 16 tracks that kick some serious ass. No wonder Peel considered them (and Joy Division) is favorite bands.

Awesome man. I was listening to Birthday Party the other night. "The Friend Catcher" my fav song. Big influence on post-punk, shoegaze, noisecore---just to name a few sub-genres. Way ahead of their time.

When we had parties (back in the day), we always used "Sometimes Pleasure Heads Must Burn" to form drunken conga lines. Good times, indeed.

The Faces - Longplayer

I agree, but I just played Nod a couple of days back. As we've discussed before, "Nod" has the perfect rock guitar sound.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds  -  Ghosteen

 I listened to the the advance preview of this new album on You Tube. Man, what a letdown! Slow, pretentious, and downright boring. This is my "go-to" band. I can't express how disappointed I am.

I read a glowing review online and decided to try the record out for myself. I actually didn't think it was that bad. I mean no doubt this record  is way chill. This is not an avant garde rock n roll record at all. But I'm a big fan of Nick Cave's movie scores,  and I hear a lot of that vibe here. But it's a fair point to argue he should keep those projects in their own lanes.
