  • Homeboy Sandman used it for a funny one a couple years ago
  • Mondeyano said: This album ("Tonk of the Lawn") was a huge cult classic in Iceland in the early 2000s. Thanks for sharing. Iceland is one of the countries I have been fascinated with since I was young. I've been driving all around central C…
  • I'm partial to the version of "Always There" (when the "doo-doo-doo-doo..." comes in at :34 after the build-up...), but I'm a fan of the entire record too. They were also involved with Brother To Brother's "In The Bottle",  which not only had the GS…
  • A hiking buddy in the music industry, a woman who cuts my hair, both Nuyoricans, and I were talking about salsa. I was asked, "did you hear that Roberto Roena passed away?" No, I did not.
  • And I thought I was lucky because Dad had the yellow seat and dugout Dodger game hookup as a kid. When a classmate taught me how to make free long distance payphone calls, I felt like such a badass. These days, simple pleasures like using off-ramp l…
  • I just saw "Betty Blue" yesterday. That was a hell of a film. Reminds me of when I tried to help out a girlfriend find a job before she in a moment of anger trashed my aunt's dress shop. That was the end of the relationship. Anyhow, I was reading Be…
  • Nice catch; it's not listed on WS. At 3:32.
  • Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers was influenced by Sabbath. He played nearby a couple years ago and did a quick run through of that album. Aside from that, I don't know.
  • Duderonomy said: Second, I remember that a Numero comp released the instrumental to Syl Johnson's Is It Because I'm Black under it's OG name (ie a different band and title). With the sheer volume of Numero comps out there, is anyone able to s…
  • "Evil Dead", the only one of his I have seen, is among few of the exceptions: "Dead Alive", "They Live", etc. But I prefer horror in the same way I like my black coffee: dark, powerful, no sweetener.  I had a chance to see Possession here at one of…
  • I try to get in one per day. I'm one of those dinosaurs who doesn't subscribe to cable/streaming and opts for the cheaper Netflix DVD-by-mail option where all the old movies are. "Our Man In Havana": I saw it when I was going through a Graham Greene…
  • I bought Konstrukt and Joe McPhee's "Babylon" several years ago and just now got around to listening to it. Damn, it is good.
  • Here are the last 25 movies I have seen in the past few months which I haven't before: The Horsemen (John Frankenheimer, 71) Hard Boiled (John Woo, 92) Walking the Edge (Norbert Meisel, 83) Following (Christopher Nolan, 98) The Silence (Ingmar Berg…
  • His rant rap energy is wild A peek into his mind....
  • ^ I was just going to say almost the same thing. RIP Also to Lonnie "Not Liston" Smith
  • My first part time job at 16 ('99) was at a video game store. This, aside from "The Last Of The Mohicans" and "Final Fantasy 7" soundtracks, was all the owners, an Iranian couple twice the age most of the clientele, played on the speakers. They didn…
  • Yes, he started out with Lonnie Liston Smith before this one. These two feature his bass. Some songs are just her scat vocals put through effects. I like it. For a polished, late 70s Inner City production, its pretty good. It shouldn't cost you more…
  • Went to a local shop that just opened back up recently and picked up some cheap finds. The Dom Um Romao (been looking for that one) and the Sweet Smoke (Dutch pressing. The OG was on the wall for something in the triple digits) were $20. Nice to c…
  • Southern California Afro-cumbia from these two bands who played last night for the first time after a year and a half hiatus.
  • That's awesome Howard Johnson got in contact with you! Art Farmer has another good record: the Europe-only LP he did with the ORF Big Band. Earlier this year, I saw that Mel Brown at this record shop in Big Bear. Everything was ridiculously overpric…
  • "War Ina Babylon" gets a lot of rotation. KPFK's Reggae Central is having a tribute to him right now. Show will be archived in a few days. https://archive.kpfk.org/index.mob.php?shokey=reggaecent I saw him at Dub Club a few times a few years ag…
  • Yosemite/Mammoth road trip playlist so far: Gong "You" 'Acid Nightmares' comp on Numero Showbiz & AG "Runaway Slave" Television "Marquee Moon" Jupiter Maça "A Setima Efervescencia" Sun Ra "The Solar-Myth Approach vol. 1 and 2" Rico "Man From Wa…
  • These albums helped with the yearly 4 hours there/4 hours back drive to Morro Bay this weekend.
  • "McClay"? I noticed a dot above the cursive letters: "Vai..."? "Voi..."? I tried the BMI and ASCAP searchable databases and came up empty, but I didn't spend too much time on it.
  • Those two original Ambiances for $5 really caught me by surprise. Despite being from L.A., the only one of theirs I have found was a warped, almost unplayable copy of "Drift Up To Space" at a thrift store twenty years ago. They were found under thei…
  • Dennis "D.T" Thomas, original member of Kool & The Gang.
  • I have a 45 of Los Joao's version somewhere. I remember it being at the least a decent cover.
  • That was thoroughly entertaining. It had me laughing so hard when he started going off on Santa, Jehovah's Witnesses and Will Smith. "How the fuck y'all make that holy water?!? / Gimme some of that so I can cook a quarter"
  • $3 finds from this past week with the exception of the Ornette Colemans which were $20 each.
