  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Sir Richard Bishop - Flirtation Devices
  2. What was the L O U D E S T concert you ever attended?

    That is the f-ing answer, seriously.. People don't get it: that shit was really loud. Possible exception was Keiji Haino in 2007.
  3. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Been in San Francisco for the last 12 years. (DC before that.) Got married, had a kid. Moved to Lawrence, KS last week to be closer to my folks, give the kid a yard, get away from crazy Bay Area cost-of-living. That Marsh was the 2nd thing played on the hi-fi since we got unpacked. It appears I don't know how replies work since the site got updated either. Oh well..

    P.S. Hey dudes..
  5. It's Brownie's Birthday!

    Happy birthday, Guy!
  6. Shades of Redd: Freddie or Tina?

    A friend of mine recently said he'd always wondered of Shades of Redd was actually a Tina Brooks session. I have to admit, I'd never thought of this before but he has a good point. Nothing in else in Redd's oeuvre sounds like that and, let's face it, "The Thespian" and "Swift" in particular sound a lot like other Brooks heads..
  7. Happy Birthday, Brandon Burke!

    Just saw this. Thanks for remembering me, fellas. I really appreciate it. Quick update: Got married in August of '08. Corinne, my amazing wife, is now in her 21st week of pregnancy; we just found out it's going to be a boy! Still living in SF. Currently enjoying: * The Byrds 'Preflyte' * v/a 'Eccentric Soul: The Deep City Label' * Richard Crandell 'In the Flower of Our Youth' * Peter Lang 'The Thing at the Nursery Room Window' * Sun Ra 'Super-Sonic Jazz' * Jimmy Giuffre 'Thesis' * Art Farmer 'Sing Me Softly of the Blues' * MF Doom 'Special Herbs' * This year's Sierra Celebration Ale * Pliny the Elder IPA * Maille (hot) * Baby arugula * Designing new LP shelves * Thomas Pynchon 'Against the Day' (only 100 pages left!) Cheers everyone!
  8. ***Captain Beefheart***

    Found this at work a couple weeks ago: Program notes from a 7" reel, Radio Free Europe Romanian Language Service..
  9. Howdy strangers, Haven't been on here in a while, i know, but i wanted to drop a line and tell you about this slide show we put up the other day. It's pretty cool stuff. Basically, i was looking for photographs of something completely unrelated in the Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty collection and stumbled upon several pictures of musicians visiting the RFE studios; mostly in Munich but Armstrong, for example, was in NY. Others include: Ella, Dizzy, Brubeck, Cozy Cole, Errol Garner, and Art Blakey. Here's the link: cheers, Brandon
  10. What was the L O U D E S T concert you ever attended?

    Agreed - saw them in Toronto about 3 weeks ago - reported on this already. I was quite prepared with plugs and ear protectors. 130 dB baby! I second that commotion! Passed on the recent reunion tour but saw them open for Dinosaur in 1992. Close second: Keiji Heino in Oct of 2007 (Prague, CZ). Bananas.
  11. Raymond Scott Orch - Tiger Rag (1955)

    The Miller Nichols Library at UMKC houses the Raymond Scott Collection. I imagine an archivist could look through his papers for you..
