Goner Message Board / ???? / what's the best live lp?(Wham! dosn't count, Greg)
Posted: Dec 10, 2003 2:58 am
bootlegs count, but no KICK OUT THE JAMS or LIVE AT THE APOLLO.

Since Wham! doesn't count... JOE TEX "Live & Lively."

That 13th Floor Elevators Live lp is fake as fuck.
Posted: Dec 10, 2003 4:17 am
I was gonna say Jerry Lee in Hamberger too! I got it for my birthday this year. It's the best. One time when I was really cracked out I jammed the Deep Purple live double rec. and it ruled. The O's live in Atl. is a smokin' bitch of an alb. How about Otis Redding live at the Whiskey? Is there an LP of it? I got the Papa's Got A Brand New Bag 45 from that session and it's better than JB's studio version!

Grand Funk Railroad: Live at the '72 Atlanta Pop Festival. Mark's guitar sounds like total shit, but Mel's bass is 'bong rattling'...and there was this LIVE Neil Diamond disc I heard a few years ago that was recorded in a small club in LA in the late 60s/early 70s that was just him and a 3 piece band. It was TIGHT.

I passed up a Grand Funk Live album at the thrift store the other day, because I already have 2 rockin Grand Funk Live Double Albums.

The Yardbirds live albums are great, and the only shit they got that seems to be affordable...have you ever priced Yardbirds vinyl? I can't find any studio albums for under 20...

My favorite live albums is:

The recordings of Little Richard and Jimi Hendrix, I found this at the thrift store, it's a bunch all the live Little Richard tracks that got Jimmi playin guitar on them....It's probbably my all time favorite.

Then I got Kiss Alive (I and yeah II too)

And then I got Dead Moon "Live Evil"....this is one of my all time favorite albums....I also got got Live in Hamburg or whatever...and it's pretty good, but I like Live Evil....I like how Tooty says "motherfuckers" alot.

man - real kids "senseless" may be even better. that 7+ minute version of "all kindsa girls" is amazing, especially the part where john felice starts his mid-song spiel about how his girl's been all over town and he has to clean his sheets three times a week.
Posted: Dec 10, 2003 11:49 pm
and what about that Live Lou Reed record "Take No Prisoners", the one where he's all coked out and won't shut the fuck up?
Creepydrifter, that Neil Diamond record you're talking about is "GOLD", probably called that cause that's what it IS. Solid gold. Smokin HOT. Rockin' all the (early) hits with a small band. He sounds like a caged tiger on "Cherry Cherry"... Grrrrrr!

I have Fandango, and it's good but I'm not a super huge fan...I think the best ZZ Top albums is the one that has the picture of them looking like Giants playing guitar in the desert...I think it's called Tequila Moon or something..

I don't understand why someone called Hound Dog Taylor the father of Bluespunk?...Is it because he started out using a cheap acoustic, and then moved on to Tiescos?.....I don't have his live album, but I got some of those Classic Chess cd's of his...and I don't realy get the punk connection. Did he use the ramones chord.....I think Bo Diddley's rythyms and Big Joe Williamson gear was pretty punk.

well this is the only HD taylor album you need. that's it, forget chess. 2 guitars, no bass, lost his wig.

Yeah, I guess he does got it going on in alot of punk respects.....but I never heard a blues punk band that sounded like Hound Dog Taylor...He's probbably punker than Big Joe Williams...but Big Joe Williams stapled pie pans to his solid state amp, and he played a 6 string soverign strung up like a 12 string! and he'd kick cans and shit for added rythym....Hound Dog Taylor...I'd like to start a blues punk band that sounds like hound dog taylor...JOn Spencer's about the closest I can think of, and even that's like to primal in some respects, and to structured in others.

Umm, I just wanted to say that the live Gun Club mentioned above as an honorable mention, ain't so good, if we're talking about the same 2CD the thing with the Jeffey Lee Pierce solo stuff, it sounds like a totally drugged out white guy who wants to have soul and guts, but just doesn't . I think sans several obvious smoking studio cuts like Sex Beat and Poison Ivy, Jeffrey Lee Pierce is overrated as a general statement. I have a feeling this criticism may not go over very well.

I was enough of a Gun Club fan that after Jeffrey Lee died it just didn't seem right to take down this giant size Miami tour poster from my wall-it's still there. But, I don't think they were served well by the live releases. They were really uneven in performance, but I saw way better shows than were documented. A killer version of Little Richard's Heeby Jeebies with Jim Duckworth on guitar for instance. And those shows where he started playing trumpet and dabbling in Free Jazz with Kid Congo reached some heights not evident on that one record with Love Supreme (I'm certain they even tackled Ascension) And hell, by the end he had turned into a decent guitar player, but didn't have much of a band behind him (sorry, I wasn't much of a fan of Romi)

As far as worst live albums go, I'll put "No Security" at the top of the list. A Dave Matthews duet? Come on, y'all!

"Western Front" LP- some great live stuff from D.O.A.,Lewd,Warzone (NOT the SxE one!),Woundz,Offs,and some priceless Flipper stuff where the band plays over some chump's political speechin' and then a fight breaks out!

"Speed Trials" LP- the best of Early/Mid 80s New York art spazz hell caught live on record. Includes unintelligible Beastie Boys HC track,Live Skull,and a great Swans song that sounds like Godzilla!

I liked that Johnny Thunders live album that came out on Munster just like 4 years ago better...it was a comp of various live stuff, mostly in France and Europe....like it was basically his entire acoustic set taken from some place and then his electric stuff....granted his post Heartbreakers electric can be hokey at times...I like it more I think...only heard the one you're talking about a couple times thow.
Doctor Sardonicus
Posted: Dec 20, 2003 8:17 pm
When I was a kid I liked The Heartbreakers...but now I seriously just like Johnny's softer stuff....Like my favorit Thunders album is Hurt Me...that I think also came out on Munster, it was like mostly just him although I think Sylvain played some stuff..he produced it...I don't know if that was put out when Thunders was alive or not, I think it might have been what was left over from that album him and Sylvain did, but it's fuckin great when your stoned...I like ever song on it, especially the one with the girls voice on it, I think called Girls Like You......you get all the subtlety of Johnny's style.

Posted: Dec 20, 2003 9:00 pm
sure, I dig some of Johnny's acoustic shit, but the early live shows are great fun. In JT's world the band heckles the audience! "geddit, geddit ya limeys" Which would be embarassing (ie. the later shows) if he couldn't back it up - but that DTK record catches the Heartbreakers burning through the best of the LAMF set.

That DVD that got put out a couple years ago, has Thunders in France getting so drunk that he couldn't stand up by the end of the set, and he landed flat on his face fracturing his nose for the umpteenth time, in a yellow tuxedo and ruffled tuxedo shirt.....oh the world of self abuse.

I guess that DTK Heartbreakers live album is considered the only worthwhile thing they ever did...but I don't care, I'm not a huge fan anymore....I like the version of My Baby Went MIA on Hurt Me.

Chinese Rocks on that DTK album is the best version ever...esepecially with Thunders fuckin retarded intro riff...sounds dark don't it...if you play it, it's just so stupid.

I like how you can tell what period a piece of Johnny Thunders music is from, based on the size of his schnozz......I don't think I've ever realy admired him, as much as I just identified with him...and that's realy the point. I mean that's what Saints are all about, look at what I endured, If I did this you can carry your shitty cross, it's alright....The fact that he od'd on methadone is significant too...I mean shit, odin the medicine you take to get clean....that's cool.

the who- live at leeds.
pull your garage rock heads out of your garage rock asses and come to terms with rock and roll.
it'll do you good.

yeah sure, live at leads is good but how many times a day does a guy have to hear it, and from how many people who don't know their head from their ass too. it's enough to keep a guy from posting it in a best live album discussion thread.

yeah, yeah- ODing is cool, especially on methadone. Really good point.
Doctor Sardonicus
Posted: Dec 23, 2003 6:31 pm
It's just cool because he was trying to clean up and he just decided that if he couldn't do heroin, maybe he didn't want to live anymore...

Or rather, maybe the methadone buzz just wasn't good enough, so he kept upping it trying to find peace...I think that might have been a common occurance back when they'd prescribe that shit....

It's just a suiting way for him to go out, although alot of people would disagree.

Posted: Dec 23, 2003 6:38 pm
I thought he OD'd on methadone because those creeps he was hangin' with at the hotel had slipped him too much LSD or something and he was trying to calm down. God, I don't know. I think that would probably not be the way anyone would choose to go. Have you ever stubbed your toe on acid? Imagine feeling your heart stop.

Every experience I've ever had on acid has been horrible...becuase I took it at the spur of the moment, and always wound up in some fucked up situation, or took to much, and would just be up for two nights straight.

I have had some desent experiences on shrooms thow...probbably the best was onetime I took a buch of shrooms and was drinking a 40 on my fire escape...and I caught a mesquito biting the top of my hand, and killed it right when it was biting me....anyway I think it had it's stinger stuck in me, becuase it itched real bad...and I guess I kept itching it, because my hand kept swelling up....and there was a party at my house that night, and all these girls were telling me I had to go to the hospital, because my hand looked like a cabbage patch kids hand....and I told them I couldn't because I was on shrooms.....so after the party the swelling went down a little, and I played galactica, or metroid, or space invaders or something, on the atari all night long with some people...and that's the best game when you're on shrooms......The End.

Also I had the best shroom hookup, that's the main benefit of living in Kentucky, I don't think anybody ever had better drug hookups...anyway they were clinically grown shrooms out of Arizona, and they used to go down thier and get them by the garbage bag full, and every one said that they were the flakiest and most golden shrooms they've ever had, and I use to eat them raw all the time they were so clean and wholesomely good.

JOHNNY THUNDERS and the HEARTBREAKERS' D.T.K. Live at the Speakeasy 1977 with Thunders challenging the audience "Hey you fuckin' kids dance? What the fuck are you doin' here? You can't the fuckin' just stayin' around and look funny!" ... "If you don't like it man why don't you just go home? You fuckin' don't make any noise! Fuckin' boring the shit out me!

Television! "The Blow Up!"
"Germicide!" (For the audience/performer interactions, i.e.: Bobby Pyn: "Does somebody want to come up here and take my place?" Heckler: Nobody could take YOUR place!" Bobby Pyn: "You're right!"
Lou Reed "Take No Prisoners" for sure. When it's on, it's better than the originals (like "Coney Island Baby) and when it's off, it's still fun hearing Lou babble nonsensically, amphetimineiacaly about each and every line in "Sweet Jane" or "Walk on the Wild Side."
"Live at Leeds" the riddims! the riddims!

Oh wait! There's the soon-to-be classic "Cunt Puppet: Live in Aroma Park, IL @ the Sackoshit House." I saw it, and then I heard it burned onto the convenient compact disk format months later, and it's the best of both worlds. Nannie nannie boo boo indeed.
Also..."Land Speed Record" by Husker Du is tons of fun..."Gilligan's Island"...oh, and "The Horrible Truth About Burma."

ahhhh, why i'm i trying to ejuamakate you kids, anyway; this whole GARAGE RAWKNROLL thing is just a pretense for you to "sow your oats" till you throw yourselves down the same marriage/family/mortgage rathole that your hero greg cartwright(perfect last name, conciderin' he's as fat as Hoss these days)did...don't say i didnt warn you.

Thanks for the ejaculation, uhmm. I mean , education. Instead of feeling educated by you, I feel like all of us readers/posters on Goners have to put up with your bitter cry baby posts, and obsessive ranting. Have no idea who you are in "real" life, and don't care-I've thought you sucked for a long time, probably 15 whining posts ago, but I don't address it everytime I have a chance. In fact, this will probably be the only time I even bother. Hey, Goubler, fuck off, you sound like a fucking whining 13 year old, cooler-than-thou, hipper-than -thou, preaching-from-the-mount, sermonizing loser. And being a fan of the Von Erichs is great, I'm glad for you. Kerry Von Erich was one of my favorites,too. Fuck off,ascerbic little man, oh I allready said that.

Hey, ESPN and domestication are indeed the low points of humanity, but just because you make babies and have a mortgage doesn't mean you've succumbed to mediocrity. I've spawned two and have no trouble juggling being in bands, being usually drunk and being a really good stay-at-home mom. Chris Martel can attest to my having kids; one spilled coffee on my keyboard and fucked up my spacebar (Thanks again for that cut-and-paste space tip).

I don't know if I really wanted to argue this point with Goubler ('cause why would anyone bother arguing with a fucking Wall of "Wah") or am just showing off, but as those kooky college kids say: "Whatev"

Posted: Jan 6, 2004 12:17 am
Tread lightly. While domesticity may equal "mediocrity", ESPN definitely does NOT. Well, not every hour anyway. Just because you don't understand/don't like sports does not mediocrity make.
Posted: Jan 6, 2004 12:31 am
"Queen", the fact that you think that your breeding AND being in a band(like we need another one) is supposed to impress me, tells me you "succumbed to mediocrity" along time ago. Say, why don't you go on Oprah and tell her audience of mouth-breathers how "empowered" you feel?
eric o
Posted: Jan 6, 2004 12:32 am
yeah. i don't care for the sport fan mentality most of the time, and espn does foster that "all sports all the time" thinking, but man they pump out quality writing/editing on insanely tough deadlines all day long. sportscenter makes the news look stupid AND silly at the same time. they actually write at a pretty high level, and they cover so much ground so fast, they demand attention from the viewer. it's definitely not mediocre. it may not be your thing, but they do a great job at what they do.
Posted: Jan 6, 2004 12:43 am
I unplugged my TV about a month ago...i figured i was only watching it for Simpsons reruns, and there's only so many times i need to see "the land of chocolate".
Posted: Jan 6, 2004 1:26 am
Honestly, Wall of Wah, it's hard to succumb to mediocrity when it would be more honest to say that I aspire to it. I'm not worried about recalling the good old days,though. I'm still planning them. But you got one thing right - I'm a total nagging shrew.

Eric- Two Things;
1. I will allow that many people find SportsCenter amusing. I dont have cable so I'll never know for sure, but even if I did I'm too much of an asshole to admit being wrong.
2. Do you think D'Lana would mind if I give Martel pictures of her tits and other snapshots relating hot doggitry? Since I have no way of contacting her I thought that you could give me permission, then if she got her shorts in a bunch it'd be your fault. I don't like it when pretty girls are angry with me.

Cheaters was indeed a highlight. TV is mostly lame but lemme tell ya, it has its moments, esp. when having to hole up in the winter in places like Portland. Please no preaching on how I need to read more or enjoy the outside world...there is nothing more annoying than virulent anti-TV people, well perhaps virulent garage rockers with misdirected hatred.

my ultimate favorite live recording:
Crime - San Francisco's Doomed vol.2 (brilliant invocation/origination(?) of the "Leonard, Pt. 6" tradition of inventing spurious prequels) on Solarlodge of France.
Almost a complete discography of all their songs, what most of us have come to love as the Crime sound...

also good,
is this Sweet live cd from the 76? that I have. It's not listed on allmusic and I can't remember the name but it has this really horrible orange and red tudor pattern, some cheesey no-perspective knight drawings and band photos on the cover. You can hear the sound of the mothers clapping their hands over their daughters' ears during "If we don't fuck you then someone else will." No banter.

Posted: Jan 7, 2004 8:48 pm
finally someone agrees with me on Crime.
Posted: Jan 7, 2004 8:56 pm
God, thank you, Eric. I couldn't sleep all last night, worrying about not having that record, and wondering what it sounded like. I can totally burn you a DVD of my Erasure WILD! Live in 1989 video. It's not just one show, but it's the ENTIRE WILD! tour!

In the last Jeff Dahl news letter he listed his top 5 alltime favorite live albums, and he has some good ones not mentioned hear.

The only one that comes to my mind off hand thow, is the Hanoi Rocks live album.

Uncle Dan
Posted: Jan 10, 2004 8:44 pm
The Hanoi Rocks live album does indeed rule! I think they sound an awful lot like the early Nomads stuff on that disc. On a side note, the new Hanoi Rocks studio album is pretty effin' cool, too.
Doctor Sardonicus
Posted: Jan 12, 2004 8:34 am
I believe it! Jeff Dahl knows his shit.

Here's his top 5 live albums:

1. Get Your Ya Yas Out -Rolling Stones

2. Metallic Zero -The Stooges

3. The Turning Point -John Mayall

4. Raunch 'n' Roll -Black Oak Arkansas
(I realy want to hear this if anybody's got it)

5. All Those Wasted Years -Hanoi Rocks

Jeff Dahl is the coolest.

Here's my top 5 favorite Dahl albums:

1. All Trashed Up
2. Heart Full of Snot
3. Scratch Up Some Action
4. Power Trip
5. His first 7 inch.

(I also realy realy like Love DTK even thow it's pretty hair...I still haven't heard the one he did with Teengenerate.....and I'm not a big fan of any of the shit he did with Poison Idea)

I'm sorry I got a correction to make..It's Wicked that's so damn hair. And I'd actually like to push it up too the number 2 spot...It's one of my favorites of all time...I think maybe because it's so damn hair. I wrecked my second car to that album.

Look at it this way, if you ever bop a housewife maybe now she'll let you listen to Devo while your doing it.

Or if you're married maybe now she'll let you listen to Devo while your doing it.
