I totally dig Cube, but never did like the Disposable Heroes.... stuff. But I do dig Charlie Hunter who started out playing guitar/bass for Disposable Heroes. He's an awesome jazz player if anyone's interested. He plays an 8 string instrument (3 bass strings + 5 guitar strings) and plays both melodies simultaneously. He's an amazing player. Even more amazing to see in person. But like I alluded to before, he plays a more funky bebop style of jazz. But really good stuff. If any of you are jazz enthusiasts, check him out.

today's mailbox goodies:
JOE SATRIANI - 'Additional Creations' mega rare promo 4 track cd that has the unreleased 'Turkey Man'. This was suppose to have been given away in a limited supply when 'Engines Of Creation' was released, but I never got one with my copy and I bought it on realease day in 2000. Finally tracked it down on Ebay ($45.00 when the auction ended, and worth every penny)

Faith No More - Ashes To Ashes 4 track

MMM - I'm shocked a man of your musical experteeze would like Ice Cube and not Disposable Heroes, who are a lot more intellectual in their writting and musically superior and original (IMHO) than any rap group I can think of. They remind me of what would happen if Chuck D joined Pink Floyd.

Then again, I really don't know much about Ice Cubes material. Most of what I heard ( along time ago) was typical rap stuff, lyrically, but Cube does have a heavy voice, which is cool.

oh well, to each his own

As far as rap gos for me it's Ice Cube, Ice-T and Public Enemy, and that's it. There's a few songs here and there from others but it seems that most rappers cannot put together a full album of songs. Oddly enough it doesn't effect their record sales.

There isn't much I like that came out after 1992.

This is some sort of import I found on Ebay, with a sticker on the front that says 'Rewind'. The sound quality is superb, and the original artwork is all there. Still, if there are plans for a remastered domestic re-issue, I'd hold out for that - since (like you said) every edition so far has included all kinds of cool previously unreleased tracks. I really hope they do the same for this & 'Fire of Unknown Origin'.

Thanks Tang, I'll hold off with hope on the remaining catalog getting the royal treatment. Cultosaurus - Fire Of Unknown Origin - Revolution By Night would all be great remasters with bonus tracks.

ROLLING STONES - Forty Licks: nice compilation for people who, just like me, are not collectors of Stones stuff. Nice double CD, covering the whole of their career.

DARKTHRONE - Hate Them: you like Plaguewielder? You're gonna love the sound on this one. The title of the first song is a perfect definition: Rust.

--------------------

"Forty-five moments of perfection translated through a cautionary escape into the perils of the mundane, the inherent entropy in ultimate order, and the potential threats of eternal, unchecked apathy in civilization; all cloaked in musical expression so thoughtful, creative and forward thinking that almost a quarter-century later, few can even comprehend it, much less match it."

I here what you're saying Schroed. But I like Cube because he was doing it long before it became typical. And I think he shows more passion than DHoH. Besides that, it's probably the nostalgia that makes me like Cube more. I'm from LA and I remember like it was yesterday when those demos of NWA were floating around before they broke it big. It was truly stuff that was unheard of at that point.
And cube's delivery may not be as intellectual, but he's definately not dumb. He's as clever as they come, and again, his delivery is heavy.

Ice Cube - Amerikka's Most Wanted

In the world of Gangsta Rap, nobody can touch the two 'Ices' - da Cube an' da 'T'
(yo)

A friend and I actually ran into Ice T in a Tower Records store in Hollywood, in probably around '88-89 or so. My bro was walking around sporting his baseball cap with the visor flipped up to reveal the infamous phrase 'Suicidal'. (remember the ones?)

So anyway, Ice T sees that, and comes walking over to us all serious like. He walks right up to my bro, almost in his face and says "yo! what's that song of theirs that goes S! - T! S! - T!!? What album's that one on?" (BTW, I recognized him only because another friend had been attempting to turn me on to his music a couple of weeks before)

I just started laughing, because the way he came up to him was all confrontational - and it turns out he knew his hardcore/ thrash pretty fucking well. And as you probably know, he went on a couple of years later to form the thrash/ core outfit Body Count. (and was damn near arrested for the song 'Cop Killer') Anyway, we shot the shit with him for a while and then went off on our way. Ever since, I've always liked the fucker.

Yes, I agree The CUBE and the T (and Chuck D)are the best voices that rap has to offer. Body Count was pretty cool and heavy and extreme. They are all the fathers of the hardcore gangstas... often imitated never duplicated.
Cool story Tang.

I forgot about the commotion NWA created, but I've never been into the raunchy, sexist, lyrics that most of these guys spew out of their mouths, or the typical "throw your hands in the air..." crap that almost every rapper has said at one time or another in a song.

Anyway, point well taken.

Today I received
Faith No More - 'This Is It The Best Of'

of course I honestly don't believe this will actually "be it"... as far as the last FNM best of compilation to be released. I got it as a freebie from Columbia House, so it is well worth it.

also received:
SPACE & BASS - various artist 12 cd box set (with a Porcupine Tree track) lots of spacey ambient tunes from everyone imaginable. Only $26.00 from Ebay... couldn't pass it by.

Dio - Lock Up The Wolves and Killing the Dragon

Anthrax - Found the Stomp 442 remaster used and got it for the covers of Celebrated Summer by Husker Du and Dethroned Emperor from Celtic Frost, good stuff. The Kiss cover is pretty good too, definitely better than Kiss.

Zyklon - Aeon. I like it more than World ov Worms. Much clearer sound and more variety in the song writing.

Opeth - Lamentations. Excellent live DVD. One set of the Damnation songs and another set of all the heavy stuff. Also includes a documentary on the making of Damnation and Deliverance.

E Force - Evil Forces. Not bad. Reminds me a lot of 80's thrash, which is a good thing.

MORE GOODIES ...if it wasn't for the music, I might have just gone insane...or maybe because of the music, I DID, but don't know it yet.

YES - The Ultimate Yes 35th Anniversary Collection (Yes and Jethro Tull are in competition as to see who can release the most Best of, Greatest Hits, Collections, Anniversry Editions, etc... it's ridiculus I know but there are some cool tracks on the 3 cd set that haven't seen official releases yet, and the remastered quality is always a nice plus when listening to these classic songs. I do wish they would forget about the Big Generator era... total crap IMHO

FAITH NO MORE - Who Cares A Lot ltd ed greatest hits 2cd collection. This is a UK release and differs from the US release only in the fact that there are color pictures in the booklet instead of black & white. Also, it seems that this is a limited edition because of the 2nd cd of demos and rarities, which was part of the standard release here in the states. Anyway, the FNM collection continues to expand.

PEARL JAM - a bunch of live shows from October 2003 (including the great Bridge Scool Benefits) that I downloaded from www.theskyiscrape.com They do a bunch of cool covers including some Johnny Cash, Ramones, Beatles, Dylan & the one show has a Temple Of The Dog reunion where Cornell comes out to sing with the band and they perform Hunger Strike & Reach Down, along with Can't Change Me & Like A Stone. During the Bridge School show they do a great parody of Old McDonald and change it to Dick Cheney, a funny little ditty

Death - Leprosy
Opeth - Morningrise
The Royal Fingers - Wild Eleki Deluxe
Dark Tranquility - Haven
Scorpions - Animal Magnetism, Taken By Force, Lovedrive, Lonesome Crow

The Royal Fingers are a Japanese instrumental surf band, great stuff. The Scorpions are all remasters and were only $9 each new. I haven't listened to them in almost twenty years, but I was a huge fan when I was a kid. Forgot how great the Scorpions are.

LED ZEP - Physical Graffiti
LED ZEP - Live at the BBC

for a ridiculous price at the pawnshop. Only problem: no booklets. Blah. For the price I payed and for the quality of the music, it was worth it.

Also bought there: 3 Tintin books, almost new, for a mindbogglingly low price. And three good ones: Tintin au Tibet, Les Bijoux de la Castafiore and Tintin et les Picaros. (ok, those are not CDs so I'll just shuddufuckup).

All of that, just even worse! certainly their most abstract release, much harder to listen to than the previous albums. It has the ambiant insanity of the Director's Cut (but very few easy melodies), and the abstract madness of Amenaza al Mundo. Composed of distinct parts, but deliberately released as one single track...

Absolutely unfuckinbelievable sounds (and combination of them)... sometimes, it's kinda blocking your breath for a second (Khanate does this too)

Beautiful packaging (though I don't think it was worth delaying the release date goatdammit!)
I mean "Beautiful" for the material used, not the pictures themselves - the album theme being Surgery...

anyway, if you like Fantomas, you gotta hear this!


found that today:

Sadus - DTP Demo 1986 + 2 bonus tracks from Certain Death Demo 1987
(Hammerheart Records)
