I wish they would update the damn site! Martin's too lazy...Invisible Records has alot of cool underground groups on their label, and they keep signing more and more. I think Marcus Spybey was(is) on there. For awhile there it looked like the whole thing was gonna fold (around 97-98 I believe), they were having all these firesales on-line, real cheap deals, but somehow they kept afloat and now are doing really well. I'm glad for 'ol Marty Atkins, and I'm glad he and Connelly have apparently patched things up (Atkins supposedly didn't pay some royalties for work on Fook). I guess he payed up since he's rolling in the dough now!

I have that on casette. It is pretty good. I was listening to lost of industrial-ish stuff at the time that came out like Cyberaktif, Ministry, Front Line Assembly, etc.
What's a good Killing Joke album to start with? I've always been meaning to check 'em out.

Speaking of Martin Atkins and Chris Connolley - these two were in a band a couple of years ago called Damage Manual. Also in it were Jah Wobble from PiL and Georgie from Killing Joke.

These are some of the greatest bands to ever live but I'm afraid the result was far weaker than the sum of its parts.

Still, Georgie mentioned a new Killing Joke album on the cards. But in the time it took Jaz Coleman to set all his occult ornimants out in the studio, Geordie had written, recorded and toured the Damage Manual LP.

I sincerely hope they make an album as awesome as any of the first four but its not going to happen.

Nuc V: I don't have any Killing Joke stuff, so I can't answer your question there!
--I went through the whole industrial phase from '92-'97. Skinny Puppy, KMFDM (which IMO aren't ind. but rather warped, amped up R&R), Pigface, Swans, Ministry, RevCo, etc. I needed "something more" to quench my ever-broadening hunger of extreme music. I was already into thrash, speed, classic rock. Why I never got into death metal I will never know, but I'm starting to dabble in it. I recently ordered Morbid Angel 'Gateways to Annihilation', Cannibal Corpse 'Gore Obsessed', Merauder, The Haunted 'MMDI', Deicide, Entombed, Nile, and some others I can't even remember!
(oh yea Soulfly '3', Sepultura 'Blood Rooted', but that isn't death metal). I know these aren't really TRUE death metal groups i.e. from Sweden or Norway, but I will get an idea from these CDs I hope. I also ordered Napalm Death 'Manipulation'.
EKH: I never knew anything about Damage Manual. Connelly is all over the place, he's involved in so many projects it's ridiculous! I'll have to check that out for sure.(next thing you know he'll have a duet album with Shirley Manson). I wish RevCo would get back together!!

I just bought the new Headstones CD. They are also Candian. They totally rock. Check them out on one of the MP3 sharing sites. Good stuff. or www.headstones.com.

Hey Hex, you a fan of Milhaud or Bartok? Those two are my favorite classical folk. Also, damn, can't think of his name....I like a lot of the modernists too.

The only decent classical guy today I can think of that's worth a damn is John Adams.

I just picked up a copy of the Zappa/ Mothers classic, Uncle Meat. Great stuff, folks. This guy was the master.


I also picked up an interesting variety of used discs:

1. Gary Numan/ Tubeway Army - Premier Hits
I am a sucker for this 80's melodic electronica, though I wish they would have included more tracks from my favorite album, Telekon.

2. Pigface - Welcome to Mexico...Asshole
An underground supergroup of musicians from Killing Joke, Skinny Puppy, etc. I heard this years ago, and was only semi-impressed. For $2.98, I will give it a second go.

3. Lawnmower Deth- Ooh Crikey...
This is silly english metal-core, and I just love some of the ridiculously inventive titles and jams. A bargain at $3.98.

4. Terveet Kadet - Hardcore Brutality
This is the only one I haven't heard before. I know of this band because of their reputation as intense euro-punk innovators. We shall see.

Heh. I didn't expect to see that band mentioned here. They've been around since about 1980, doing HC stuff in Finnish. I'm not entirely sure but I think that album is the first one they've done in English. BTW, 'Terveet Kädet' translates as 'Healthy Hands'!

There's also another band called 'Radiopuhelimet' ('Radiophones') who have been around almost as long and from what I've heard, are quite intense as well. Here's some info about them: http://www.radiopuhelimet.net/historia/history.htm
Here's a bunch of MP3's from the band's predecessor, ktmk: http://www.radiopuhelimet.net/av/av.htm

thanks for the link VN, this is great stuff!
I love Finland's early crust/punk scene, Kaaos, Rattus, Riistetyt, Uutuus...

Didn't buy much recently, last stuff was:

the sensational Maytals
(early Toots & the Maytals, 1965 jamaican ska/rocksteady, I love that stuff - and that band in particular...)

New Bomb Turks - Destroy-Oh-Boy!
New Bomb Turks - Pissing Out The Poison (Singles & Other Swill 90-94)

(didn't like their more recent releases, but this is excellent! Destroy-Oh-Boy is a must!)

You're welcome! BTW, does anyone have Testament's "First Strike Still Deadly"? Is it a live re-recording of the old songs or is it a studio recording? Or Live At The Studio? I tried to get some info at www.testamentlegions.com, but there was no further details...

It's a studio recording. The re-recorded "Legacy" songs are better than the originals, but, on the other hand, I'd rather go for the original "New Order" songs.

Worth buying, though. Zetro (from the Legacy days) even sings on the last two songs.

Ok, thanks for the recommendations. That one will be added to my "must buy" list along with Cathedral's "The VIIth Coming"...

Tangento: Mexico is a raw recording. I still think it jams, 'Lash/Herb/Taxi' gets down.

Yeah, I am liking it better this time.
I love the drums. Reminds me of the power of Murder, Inc.
Though Geordie would have made this album DRIP with Dissonance and Distortion. That is what it lacks.
Still, another bargain!

And, the Lawnmower Deth fucking OWNS.

The Terveet Kadet is really thin, 3-chord progressions played without much aggression.
Not real impressed with that one.
You know when there are 53 songs, they are all gonna sound the same.
(unless there are 40 of them, and you are The Residents)

Just got BATHORY's Twilight of the gods yesterday. It's, I suppose, the second album of the Manowar era for Quorthon.

It's quite good, but not what I expected from him.

Fuck yeah. This album scorches.
"Icing on the Hate" - is that just insanity or what?
BTW excuse my ignorance... what ia a digipack?
There is a "bonus" if you let track 12 play through. It ain't really much of anything, though.

A digi-pack is a cardboard slipcasre with the booklet inserted into a small slit. There is a thin plastic mount for the disk . I hate them, they get all banged up and stuff.
The vinyl for the new ND has two Septic Death covers as bonus tracks.

REALLY!
Septic Fucking Pushead Death, huh?
Do you know which songs?
BTW I guess digipacks are exactly what I thought they were. Thanks.

This is right from the ND web site www.enemyofthemusicbusiness.com

"There will be a special limited edition version of the album on double (coloured) vinyl which will have two extra tracks - "Thaw" and "Terror rain" originally recorded by the band Septic Death."

Hasidic New Wave-From the Belly of Abraham

Excellent Klezmer(you know Jewish folk music) jazz with a thick, let me repeat that, THICK RHYTHM SECTION, and an introduction by the Senegalese drummer praising Mohammad. Now that is what I call cosmopolitan.

Well, I listen to a lot of jazz and I when I heard Don Byron do some klezmer I said what the hell is this? Crazy ass horn music(usually a blaring clarinet out front)to a polka beat. And I came to find out that there are a ton of Klezmer bands out there who're experimenting with this very ancient style of music. I ran onto Hasidic listening to some show(I think the 'Sound and the Spirit')and was blown away by them. This album is their most straightforward work. Earlier stuff is way more avant-garde. Mean Mr. Mustard told me that the guitar player, Dave Fiuczynski, had a band called Screaming Headless Torsos who some of you may know. Dave's about as rad as they come when it comes to guitar freakout.

Where'd I buy it? Half.com

Hey Tango, ever heard of Zappa's Piquantique? Its my fav Zappa album next to Burnt Weeny Sandwich.
