What are some good LPs/45s from this year? Anything?
I count nice re-issues as new.

Thanks to work I haven't been up on any new stuff

Bruce is killing it this year. He released Lower Plenty, a low key kind of weird acoustic thing, which was my fave....until BITS OF SHIT! This album,Cut Sleeves, is sooo fucking great. One of the best punk albums I've heard in years. Goner releases this year have been awesome....The new Lost Sounds is killer. Golden Boys "Dirty Fingernails" is a winner as well.

what is this "new" lost sounds?
Posted: Jul 29, 2012 7:14 am
 
yeah, sorry...the new Lost Sounds reissue. That's what I meant.

the new Lost Sounds reissue

not exactly a reissue, but I agree that it rules.
Posted: Jul 29, 2012 7:35 am
 
To me, it's all about Yamantaka Sonic Titan and Pinkish Black

OK, I'm gonna get this right. The new Goner release, a collection of outakes and alternate versions of Lost Sounds songs....is killer.

Pinkish Black

This is a good record. Really good.
Posted: Jul 29, 2012 3:14 pm
 
The new River City Tanlines is good. I like the new Norah Jones. Ulver's new on is good too, they picked a bunch of great garage/psych tunes to cover.


Alex Chilton's 1970 Sessions, and the George Harrison record are great reissues.

love the Golden Boys record. Been obsessed with Lower Dens for the last three years. Their second and most recent album is a gloomy fucked up grower.
The dude from Portishead has put out two real great non-Portishead records: Quakers is fucking awesome and has turned me on to a bunch of weird new hip hop artists, and Beak>> for the 21st century Kraut jams. Which leads to the Can Lost Tapes release that is also quite good. Debruit "From the Horizon" for all your electro-afro-funk needs. The Hussy's new record is top notch, even if it's a little less literally "in the red".

Excited to pick up a copy of that Catatonic Youth reissue (which hopefully won't sell out before pay day...)
Posted: Jul 29, 2012 9:49 pm
 
Hank Wood & the Hammerheads and Crazy Spirit.
Posted: Jul 29, 2012 10:12 pm
 
I've been getting behind that Cosmonauts LP all year. If You Wanna Die Then I Wanna Die... really excellent if you dig the SP3.

Im pretty excited to hear the new slug guts record that came out last week. And really excited to get the Bitch Prefect LP next week. Can we just move goner fest to austrailia next time and get golden tickets to the outback or whateves for $60?

Can we talk about bummers too? I was pretty excited about the new Timmys Organism record. Pretty Stare (on the first LP) one of the best songs of the last few years. Nothing on the new record comes close to that perfection. Not to say it isnt good...it just isnt as good as Pretty Stare. Ill give it another listen on tuesday.

I like those bootleg bbc recordings coming out of eno, joy division, mbv, souxie, and the others. but that's not new. Neither is the Tronic reish, but I like that to

Unless reissues count, I can't think of many. The Gary Wrong singles are great. Bitch Prefect & pretty much all aussie stuff is good. Midnite Snaxx. I dunno.
Posted: Jul 30, 2012 2:46 pm
 
the new Red Kross sounds pretty good so far
Posted: Jul 30, 2012 8:50 pm
 
once again, flogging my own dong here. hard to believe i can put out a record that should have the garage rock scene by the balls and the goners don't give a fuck. is the goner crowd as anti-garage as terminal boredom now? did you just not know about it, or does it just suck? i can take it if you hate it as long as you actually know about it.

So far... Been keeping a running tally... May change by the end of the year... Doesn't include all the Trouble In Mind stuff, which I obviously think is tops but will not include...

Also: Australia is laying waste to the competition this year. At least in our house.

Ty Segall & White Fence "Hair" (Drag City)

this record IS the shit. i've only heard it on a friend's phone though.
Posted: Jul 31, 2012 8:48 am
 
those New Coke and Paint Fumes records are pretty good


i thought this was about albums, otherwise i woulda mentioned new coke. of course i love paint fumes too, but new coke... goddamn. i hope they do an album as good as the single.

thanks, but i'm just wondering what happened with the psyched!

the best i got from termbo on them was someone making fun of their name.
Posted: Jul 31, 2012 11:05 am
 
My own opinion, but the Burger Records scene has made camp the thing...maybe they aren't campy enough....camp to me just makes all of them seem like silly kids, but I'm naturaly campy myself so I can't say it bugs me. Just doesn't get my engine purring.

Anyway, I'm buying some records from Goner on Friday if I can afford it...I'll stop over at Slovenly and pick up some choice slabs o' wax from you too...

Bits Of Shit - Cut Sleeves is the best record of the year so far.

i still think that ty segall's "melted" is a new record cuz i hear it all the time. have a few copies of the thing with white fence showing up in my distro. can't wait to get it cuz from what i know it's the closest in sound to melted.

brand new as of today, from the black gladiator album:

New King Tuff. As good as or better than the first on, but it took a few listens for me.

I learned from an email that Doug Moody sent me that Mystic Records will be reissuing the Aryan Disgrace 7". So make sure you have money leftover for that when it comes out

rerelease of Immaculada by the The Men is out!

Heard the new Angel Witch album today... Just as crucial as their first record. Such a great band.

Bruce is killing it this year. He released Lower Plenty, a low key kind of weird acoustic thing,

I like this record, but it led to Dick Diver, which I like even more (even though their record is 2k11)! Go aussies go!

Thanks for the heads up Rayultine...just checked out Lower Plenty's soundcloud. I realy like what I consider the Silver Jews inspired bands to come out in recent years....

Most "buzz worthy" bands these days remind me of Public Image Limited or Big Audio Dynamite...I like both of those bands so I'm liking things pretty well....

shame on me, but the new sebadoh single is pretty awesome.
Posted: Aug 8, 2012 10:38 am
 
yeah, sorry...the new Lost Sounds reissue. That's what I meant.

I've never checked out Lost Songs because I thought I might hate it a lot. damn was I wrongo. And this record is their fucking b-sides/rarities collection? I shudder to think about how good their actual records might be. Which ones are y'alls faves?
Posted: Aug 8, 2012 10:50 am
 
Black Wave

sebadoh


I can never listen to them again with out laughing. They were playing the Hi Tone one night and Don(bullyrook) was at the pop and was drunkenly trying to put together a posse to go fight them. I have no idea why......but that shit was funny.

To be honest....I have one other record of theirs......Blac Static...the Fat Possum reissue......I liked it, but didn't give it a lot of play...it just didn't stick. I love the Goner release though....I would ask what albums are more like this record?
Posted: Aug 8, 2012 5:31 pm

Yeah, they're totally dumb. Not much of the stuff they made when I was a kid has aged well. Or maybe it has since I never did drugs as a teenager. I'm honestly just waiting for tigerblinds to write a 5 paragraph essay about all the shit he was listening to in '94 that was way cooler than Sebadoh and why his life is a huge bummer.
Posted: Aug 8, 2012 6:32 pm
 
Their not dumb. I like'em. It's just that Don has kind of tainted them for me with his tomfoolery.
Posted: Aug 8, 2012 10:11 pm
 
tigerblinds doesn't post on Goner anymore. Remember his goodbye?
Posted: Aug 8, 2012 10:13 pm
 
PS...does someone want to send me the Bits of Shit album? I'm going to buy it but my car got broken into and they busted my car the fuck up for an old iPod and a shitty stereo from 2005...and now I have $1000+ in car repairs...so record buying is off the list for the foreseeable future.

No offense folks, but that band makes me sick.
What a weak ac/dc rip off.

Fuuuuuuuuuck.
Posted: Aug 10, 2012 4:46 pm
 
Not fair Nanne. I can buy the ac/dc influence....but it's not what your making it out to be. This board is eclectic....today it's metal.....tomorrow it'll be garage folk or something.....you know how it is.
Posted: Aug 10, 2012 5:02 pm
 
sorry nanny boo boo
didn't know I had to just stick to one genre of music like they do at the goner store
Posted: Aug 11, 2012 5:37 am | Edited by: Ding Le Dangle
 
bullshit
I myself posted about metal and like a lot of recent metal records

but it's gotten outa control on this board

This board is eclectic?
It is not. This board suffers from a moodswing that doesn't seem to stop: metal talk.

Furthermore Cole: I could say like one of those diehard Gonerstore fans: I really dig the Slug Guts, and if you said to me: jesus fuckin christ old fart, that's a bad rip off from the Birtday Party and the Gun Club, then you would be right too.
I like the Slug Guts, but could totally understand why someone would hate 'm for the reasons mentioned above.
I don't think they're great, but I like the record. It makes me sentimental.

To me Bits of Shit sound like couple of drunks who try to be AC/DC at Amateur Hour.

And I am totally right when I say there's a metal tsunami that only gets worse on ????.

Fair play.
Posted: Aug 11, 2012 5:50 am
 
You know me better than that Mark.
I even refuse to buy stuff at the Goner Store. I don't like to get insulted by guys who work in a recordstore. Esp not while buying stuff.
I buy that shit here, at recordstores or at other distro's and webstores.
Goner Store can suck my dick.

two threads on the front page is a tsunami?

the dutch don't build dykes like they used to
or do they?
Posted: Aug 11, 2012 11:04 am
 
nope
our future King is chief watermanagement and he knows and talks a lot about the risks we are facing, but building dykes: no.

One big piece of ice falling of the northpole, which can happen any minute, and our country is completely gone.
Scientists explained this hundred times on tv,
but the anti flood protection we get is just to protect our big shipping business.

I have a deal with my mom. When the tsunami comes, we're gonna pour ourselfs a drink and gonna sit in a gardenchair welcoming the water.

This country should drown. Better gone than gone fascist.

Two threads?
A million metal posts in other threads.
Anti flood protection?
Not for metal talk and not for Tigerblinds, who found a way to escape it and I keep asking myself how he did it.

My favourite rerelease of this year will probably the Immacula lp by The Men, but god allmighty:
why didn't the label sent the testpressings back to the plant with a note that said:

'Are you fucking kidding me, you bunch of flakes?!!!!'
Posted: Aug 16, 2012 9:32 am
 
O, Monoshock is also a very great rerelease, even if your American SS is involved.

(How vain can a shithead be to call his label SS records, thinking that it will already will become more famous during his life than the German SS from WII)

Yes folks: Soriano is bigger than Jezus and more famous than Hitler.

But still.
Essential record.

You are the most disgusting loser I have ever known.
Posted: Aug 16, 2012 12:23 pm
 
I get slowed down by Anti-flood protection also...so don't get all paranoid.

The metal stuff is sort of regional...I don't mind it becuase I'm appathetic and an absurdist for the most part...and I hate being taken literaly...it's not even that I like to be flippant or anything. I just hate being pigeon holed.

But honestly metal is supreme in the midwest and south. It still offers a viable alternative lifestyle and culture. We all have shitty jobs and impossible dreams that we would like to escape if we could, and any viable subculture will help you do that.

When I stopped listening to my parents music, I started listening to my cousins music...he is from Western, Kentucky...he was into Metal...then I moved to DC and listened to alot of Howard Stern on DC101...watched alot of Headbangers Ball, so it's a culture that's familiar to me and most folks in middle America...and it's realy rediculous, weird and funny.
Posted: Aug 16, 2012 12:27 pm
 
Actually, Rap and juggalo shit are supreme in the Midwest....Metal is almost hipster by comparison...but they all operate under the same precepts...almost all subcultures do. We need even more of them at this point....because things are so homogenized now with the internet being so prevailant....it's hard to establish any significant culture or group identity...
Posted: Aug 16, 2012 12:32 pm
 
there is this guy in my neighborhood...he must be in his late 40s....I can't figure out if he is into LA Guns or like My Bloody Valentine...but he is always mowing his yard in like black jeans and boots and paisley vest and stuff, died black hair....I'm always tempted to be like "hey man why the hell don't I know you yet?" "What music you be digging on?"...

I wear basketball shorts and stained up running shoes when I mow the lawn, I feel like such a fair weather music fan.
Posted: Aug 16, 2012 12:36 pm
 
Europe is also still drenched in metal, old school, new school, crazy school.
(It drove the editors of the rag I used to work for crazy.)
I don't mind, I used to go to metalshows just for the company of the audience, who were just as nice and cool as the scumfucks I hung with in highschool. Felt like going back in time for a few hours, kinda of shooting up.


It just think it's weird. Seeing how big genres as noise and hip hop are too here. Well, hiphop is still reviewed, less and less though, but for noise you only have the global community on the web, or some overeducated shithead bullshit in The Face.
Posted: Aug 16, 2012 12:48 pm
 
It's not even the teenagers who need their own subculture at this point, it's the grown ups who realy need it....you can't exactly just get married and expect to be married forever anymore, and no one realy has the job security people used to, or derive a sense of identity from family and career like they used too. People need other unique interests to spice up their lives.

Like flipping and flopping between the Church and the blues...music is a thing of the spirit and that's the sort of thing people need....metal is treated like a religion...part of the reason the blues and metal are so preoccupied with the Devil...I don't realy think it's because Metal evolved from the Blues via AC/DC or Led Zeppelin or something....I think it's because they both fill the same spiritual void in peoples lives as does the church.
Posted: Aug 16, 2012 12:54 pm | Edited by: tigerblinds
 
Yeah Metal doesn't realy speak to me either on any grand scale.

I like weird music from small towns, that don't even get a turn out in their own towns...like studio bands practically, only they can't play their instruments...or like outsider country blues from 4 generations back.

...and that just says something about my place in society.
Posted: Aug 16, 2012 1:08 pm
 
I don't have a place in society anymore and getting that far almost cost me, and soon wiil cost me my life, and I don't give a flying fuck.

What I forget to say was:
when I wanna talk metal, I would join a metal board. I'm sure there are plenty good ones.

I came to this forum, and this forum only, for a couple of reasons, of which Metal Talk wasn't one and will never be one.
It is a waste of space on the Goner Board to me.

I kind of just have a love/hate relationship with "musicians"....I'm more into music by cool non-musicians than music by musicians.

So much about being a musician is cliche at this point and not very romantic.

The other day I asked someone if they wanted to start a 'real garage band', and by that I mean, we don't play any bullshit standards (or maybe all we do is standards) and no one knows what key any of our songs are in...basically the most inept player is on guitar...and we don't take seriously being taken seriously. Every song borders on deconstructionalist noise...and even if everyone can play their instruments every song will still sound like deconstructionalist noise.

Maybe she will go for it who knows...but that's basically how I would describe my dream band....I still like the standard song format however, like even if the entire song is one riff, it's got to have different singing parts and be less than five minutes as a general rule....I am very very pop oriented.

Good music to me liberates people from social constraints, and the "cult of the musician" is one big cliche I would rather avoid....but then you have shit like blues and metal that put it on this pedestal to the point where they all fucking sound the same.
Posted: Aug 16, 2012 2:14 pm | Edited by: tigerblinds
 
Realy I'm getting way more into electronica...I hear more electronica/guitar hybrids that I think are kind of cool than garage bands...and I just think it's because they have more of the mind set I just described.

It's more romantic music to me, more personal to the artist...

For awhile I had a good run writing those acoustic songs, recording them, and throwing them up on facebook. Just very personal and eccentric tunes, that reflect my base musical development. I'm still going to do them but I go threw phases and get distracted with the "real band" I'm in. I'm just way more casual about music than most people, alot of folks would shutter at the thought of writing a song and recording it right away...I usually fuck up a few places, but as long as I get the jist accross I don't even care...that's more interesting and fun for me. If I ever feel like doing a live set, I'll just pick a couple to go back and learn for real.
Posted: Aug 16, 2012 2:21 pm
 
So often people take my favorite bands and try to polish up their sound make them more musician friendly and sell them to the masses and it usually works....well I kind of fucking hate that. The "musician friendly" sound is so fucking played out...I hate it. I tolerate it because it's still a tool for expressing a unique emotion...I mean being able to play music comes in handy for PLAYING MUSIC...but 9 times out of 10 they don't achieve shit, it's not unique...it's played out.

It's like George Thorogood reworking John Lee Hooker...I'll fucking pass.

Maybe Metal is the wave of the future...all of us crude guys should strip down metal..piss off all of the puritans...they would boo the shit out of anything like that...I bet that would rule.

Just deconstruct it like The Gories did with the blues....if anybody wants to start that kind of band get me involved...I will at least put the word out, maybe do a record if I'm in any sort of financial position to do so. Hell I'll play bass if you wanted to get a job washing dishes and stay in my guest bedroom for a couple months.

I'd love to piss off asshole musician metal heads.

well, i did say that the psyched is a punk version of electric wizard / doom metal.
Posted: Aug 16, 2012 2:39 pm
 
Man, I decided to stop being a musician because when I have a band I am a bigger bastard than Frankie Z. I'd kick a member of the band's ass for every fuck up on stage.

Back to cheepnis; this is what I mean.
The bastard didn't put up Frank's intro, so that piece first before the song.

The intro:



the song:



that video was made by a fan.
Posted: Aug 16, 2012 2:48 pm
 
Psyched are cool.

I'm thinking a stripped down metal sound, would be like some of The Donnas stuff...but that was 4 girls....imagine if you had some people from other varied backgrounds doing it.

I think it would be a fun project....the thing about it is that most people who want to start a band have a hard time sticking to abstract concepts like that...like most people come to the table with a few particular bands in mind, and push to sound as much like them as possible. It's hard to be like, lets play Slayer using the Ramones chord without all the stupid fast drum fills.

Like most people would want to keep getting better and better so they can play all those stupid fast Slayer drum fills.....so they could sound as much like Slayer as possible....not me...I'd rather sit on my ass, chase skirt and drink beer.

I might take up writing or painting, I haven't decided which...but it is kind of empowering being able to sit down and produce a semi-finished product with complete creative freedom.

You actually just described what I think makes writers kind of looney....they are always trying to rewrite real life, or just relish in the power of having complete control over their characters.

I think that's why so many writers are alcoholics, because alcoholism is ultimately about control. It's fueled by feelings of helplessness or whatever...not being able to accept the world on its own terms.

But still, I've always enjoyed writing, and I have all the same tendencies, I just reached a point where I didn't want to go any further into the rabbit hole, or maybe I'm just lazy.

My main objective is to take more photographs..that's always what I'm looking for..that's what I'm designing my life around.

alcoholism is ultimately about control

no, it's to make the world smaller and smaller, so you think you get more power over it while in fact you are losing power, you just don't notice it anymore once you started drinking heavily and (to paraphase Lowry's hero) you always feel not drunk enough or simply too drunk to be able to enjoy it.

Furthermore:
To think that all writers write to recreate life is bullshit.

That they all live in Looney Tune Land is true though.

How true...that's almost any substance that becomes a crutch.


I don't know, recreating life seems to be synonymous with writing...I mean you're describing the world in symbols and metaphor.

I'm sure everyone has different approaches to the craft, but you can't deny you spend alot of time in your head.

I do not write to recreate life. I write for other reasons.
And I know a lot of writers who don't either.
And a whole lot who do, because they lack imagination and one or more philosophic chessproblems.

Mark, we are different. I wrote a novel, very highbrow, in which I sketched the possibility of High Art just being a result of a mental disease. Something that I think is very close to the truth.... not only because I am a lunatic myself.
My last book seemed totally about the same subject, but was not. Hell, I'm a writer in the dumbest literature in the world. I think High Art might be the result of a simple mental disease. And I don't live in a country that has much proof for another point of view.
Fuck Dutch Lit. It really is complete and utter shite compared to what other European countries have presented in the 3 last centuries.

I truly believe Human Beings are anamoly's of nature. One of those black holes that made Einstein go nuts from time to time, and a thing that makes me piss as much on darwinism as on religion.

I like Art...I don't believe in High Art. I also don't like the "cult of the artist"....I do think artists almost always have problems because society and the artist's own clique fucking hate them...wants to rip them down. The individual always stands out...especially one with real vision. They set the stage for huge cultural change and get thrown crumbs, the term "starving artist" has nothing to do with food....usualy some fascist meat-head shit-head sits at the top of the food chain.

Maybe it takes a motherfucker to clue in a world full of motherfuckers...I don't want to downgrade the importance of stupid, lecherous, art fascists.

I mean people are inherently stupid and lazy, and by nature look for folks to clue them into shit...folks who are more tapped into a certain Zeitgeist. The artist, staunch individualist, on a quest for personal meaning, rejects all short cuts to thinking and experiencing.

Nabokov, is a good example of how idealists often wind up at the opposite perspective of where they began...liberators often become fascists and dictators...
Posted: Aug 20, 2012 11:20 am
 
It's not the artist who reaches for that position of head motherfucker....it's a political achievement. It's a job for meat heads and fascists.

The artist is typically in a state of revolt...more concerned with real human conditions.

"High Art" is a class distinction.

Another good example is how the 5% upper crust in Brazil, try to say that the National Folk Music is Bossa Nova, a style strongly derivative of 60's Motown with a distinctly latin tempo....they totally downplay and deny Caribe, which is mostly a result of indigenous indian rythms and some references to colonial slave culture. Bossa Nova is the music of the upper 5%, it bares little impact on the lives of normal people and doesn't say anything about their dreams, hopes, and desires. We Americans love it, because we can afford to live a life of leisure that Bossa Nova exemplifies. It also self-references our beloved Motown.

But yeah, the ruling class rewrites cultural facts to their own liking.

The mythology of the artist is that they transcend all class distinctions. The artist has no class....there might be a little truth to the artist standing outside of all that, but you are always a product of where you come from. "Cult of The artist" types think they can become some strange animal via art...they would like to escape themselves via art.

What was according to you the beginning perspective him?
And what is according to you his last?
Wherein lies the change?

Bossa Nova, supposedly the native folk sound of Brazil if you ask the ruling class...is an attempt to align themselves with the imperial power, the Unites States.

Bossa Nova is considered "High Art"...Caribe is considered a bastard. All it has to do with is the prevailant class system...that's all that those distinctions are based on.

A book that could give you a good elementary basis of the role the artist plays in society is The Outsider by Colin Wilson..the follow up book written 20 years later, Beyond The Outsider, is written on a more scholarly level.

Colin Wilson is a dude who gets over looked because he is outside the hoighty toighty fascist bullshit political art world.

Nah, it's not just that.

You don't know anything or understand anything about 'being an artist'.

And of course many 'real artists' are always victims of the folks who run that business and 'politicize' everything. But give those 'real artists' a chance to politicize their career and over 90% of 'm would do it.

I think you actually believe more in 'real artists' than I do.

And even your pizza delivery boy knows that Nabokov stated again and again that he was absolutely non-political and not interested in politics at all.

A bit of a weird statement. Of course: he hated communism and fascism just as bad as the members of the Russian community in exile who did nothing else than complain about all the money they lost.
But he also wrote many novels against (every form of) totalitarianism.

He also loathed America for it's lack of mental and physical hygiene and table manners.
He also thought the universe was a wonderful miracle and that almost everybody in it was a dumbass.

Just a few of his Strong Opinions.

He had a lot of those.
I often disagree with him. On many subjects.

I should have expounded more on why society always hates the artist...that was my only short coming..I don't think you know shit about what you talk about Ding....the fact that you even want to have this conversation on a rocknroll chat board is pompous as it gets.


Society hates the artist because they exist outside of the bullshit class system. They create their own systems of meaning that are not hinged on money or birth right. They find significance in things that serve no practical use to the ruling class...etc. Many an essay has been written on the subject.

The best metaphor for the Artist is probbably Jesus on the cross...and it's realy no coincidence that majority of cult leaders are failed artists....they occupy a similar place in the social frame of things.

I don't realy give a shit about Nabokov, you can stop now...I might go back and read him if I ever have any practical use for it. Whatever I got from him was via Pynchon, or Don Delillo or any other intellectual I may have liked in the past who was influenced by him.

I don't have any use for "high art."

Nietzsche in his early days believed that the artist best embodied his principles on the "ubermensch"...but as he developed his philosophy, he started regarding Artists much as he regarded Christians. He thought the diplomat and politician were closer approximations...but that's when he started to go loopy, and his sister with her husband in the Third Reich a generation before WWII edited those texts extensively.

Posted: Aug 21, 2012 7:48 am
 
But do you get why Nietszche regarded the artist so highly in the early days? Because the artist "creates meaning out of nothing"...and he saw nihilism as mankinds greatest enemy.

That's also why the artist is such a percieved threat to social hierachy on all levels. Everyone steals from the artist, as soon as they find meaning, there the hoards of imposters swoop in.

A piece of artwork is like a baby, you release it into the world and it takes on a life of it's own.

After enduring this for so long, practically from day one, most people develope a self destructive bent.

The best way for one to avoid those futile feelings is to be aware of the process that is happening around them...

The artist should refuse to destroy themselves, they should let the polite masses who don't like to get their hands dirty, do it for them...expose them for the blood thirsty pigs that they are...like Jesus.

I'm not an artist...I try to take on pigs one by one, by not giving them the respect and satisfaction they they think they warrant. It's not a social quest, it's a personal one.

You guys are in for a treat when it finally arrives. It's so good, I don't even have to smoke out before I listen to it.

Well sorry Ritchie...sorry to get on a soap box and be so politically polarizing.

I don't see why anyone thinks I give a shit about how many posts I make, or flaming, or trolling or whatever....

Posting a thousand consecutive messages in a row has been my M.O. since like the first month Goner was even a website....

First one was fantastic, you mean this one's even better?

Goddamn, when are you gonna buy me that hut in the woods of Big Sur?! I probably could finish my last novel there. All I need is a female nurse WHO DOES NOT TALK, but can bbq like a guy and take notes like a steno pool genius.
You can have all my American Lit. Yes, written in your dialect, some real hard to find stuff, athough I am NOT a bibliophile. And my guitars (got a fantastic white Ibanez Les Paul Custom from the seventies, f.i. that is better than any Les Paul build by Gibson after 1979.

I wanna get my hands faster on these kinda lp's.

Goddammit!


And someone buy me a car too!

The latest long player has everything from the Malthusian,"Stop Breeding" to the misanthropic, "Murder". Needless to say a must.

Dude, if hou wanna live off the grid in the usa for cheap, might I suggest Slab City, Ca.Its an old usmc base in the Mojave. You can get by by just recycling old artillery shells. I hear it gets up to 120 F in the summer though, and Henry Miller's ghost is nowhere to be found.
