Buckner Reup

Reuploaded, two radio appearances from Richard Buckner.

Plus an excuse to post this clip:

Tears Before Bedtime

This is something interesting I found the other day. Called "Conversations With Elvis Costello", it's a 2 cd promotional edition of Elvis Costello's "Imperial Bedroom" in which he discusses each song in detail before you hear it.

This, along with his first three, is one of my favorite EC albums. As is mentioned often, it was produced by Geoff Emerick, who also worked on "Sgt. Pepper's" as well as Paul McCartney's solo stuff. Even though it does feel a bit overambitious, some might say pretentious, it is a very satisfying, varied album, and very different than the rest of his stuff. Its sensibilities are more Cole Porter than Randy Newman, I guess you could say.

Anyway, even though the chats break up the flow of the songs (which is a key component, particularly in this album), it is worth it to hear new insights and behind the scenes info.

They're trying to wash us away

I always disliked Randy Newman, having only heard "I Love L.A" and such; had chalked him up to be just another Hollywood jingleoid songwriter. To a great extent, he is that. But he's also a masterful lyricist of an acrid intelligence and a black sense of humor.

I remembered reading an Elvis Costello interview in which he said that on his first album, "My Aim is True", he had basically done a Randy Newman imitation, so i got curious and downloaded "Guilty", a 2 cd greatest hits comp, and this is where I first heard songs like "Rednecks" and "Louisiana 1927". The former, sung in the voice of a racist southerner cliche, the latter to resurface as a premonitory foreshadowing of the tragic mess that was Katrina.

I don't usually go for concept albums, but in this case, like with Terry Allen, I make an exception.

"That's what I wanted-- I think my goal wasn't to get rich and famous, necessarily, though I cared about that. I always thought, "Oh, this could be a hit," or "that will sell records." But the first thing I wanted was that people who knew a lot about music, or had taste-making qualities, they would like my stuff. Writers, people like that. And I kind of got it, and realized, I want more! [laughs] It's always gratifying to me when someone like Elvis Costello mentions me, someone whose work I admire." (from PITCHFORK)

1. "Rednecks"
2. "Birmingham"
3. "Marie"
4. "Mr. President (Have Pity on the Working Man)"
5. "Guilty"
6. "Louisiana 1927"
7. "Every Man a King" (Huey P. Long, Castro Carazo)
8. "Kingfish"
9. "Naked Man"
10. "Wedding in Cherokee County"
11. "Back on My Feet Again"
12. "Rollin'"

Little Girl Blue

This is Nina Simone's first album, released in 1957. It's an interesting glimpse into the origins of her unique "social cabaret" style in the early part of her career. Nuff said.


1. Mood Indigo
2. Don't Smoke in Bed
3. He Needs Me
4. Little Girl Blue
5. Love Me or Leave Me
6. My Baby Just Cares for Me
7. Good Bait
8. Plain Gold Ring
9. You'll Never Walk Alone
10. I Loves You, Porgy
11. Central Park Blues
12. He's Got the Whole World in His Hands [*]
13. For All We Know [*]
14. African Mailman [*]


This is one of my favorite records of all time. The Descendents were (cue cliche) ahead of their time. Their pop punk stylings foreshadowed Greenday, the Offspring, Weezer and all the inane pap that was to follow (Blink 182 et al.).

After about 2 decades, I've been listening to this album a LOT again, and it's made me marvel at just how good they were. This to me is their best. It also marked the first appearance of lead singer Milo Aukerman, inspiration for the Milo character that was featured on most of their covers. And he was going off to college, hence the title (duh).

Later, they went more for the pop side of their sound, leaving behind their more creepy negative side - both in terms of lyrical content and the Black-Flag-influenced sound heard here.

Today I found out that founding member, guitarist, and the man responsible for their darker lyrics, Frank Navetta, passed away last Halloween (2008). He had quit the band back in 1958, burning all his gear to become a fulltime fisherman in Oregon.

So this entry becomes my belated tribute to Frank as well as to the Descendents. Rest in Peace.

Liz Phair. Once ubercool indie queen, she tried to go polished-pop, but it didn't take. Now she's on Dave Matthew's label, which is a nice midpoint between Matador and Capitol Records i suppose.

These are her casette 4 track demos that got her the Matador contract to rerecord many of the songs which would become "Exile in Guyville", which was rereleased by DM's label last summer.

(NOTE: The songs in the zip are in a different order than this list, which is how they appeared on the original casettes.)

Irish Rover

I intended on posting 4 cds of bsides and rare tracks by the Pogues, to celebrate St. Patty's, but zshare wouldn't let me! So, instead, here are the boys with the Dubliners doing "Irish Rover".


Black Sheets of Rain

Allright, so i am back for what is becoming my monthly post. Pathetic, I know. Sorry dudes and dudettes. Sometimes i just ain't in the mood!

But anyway..

I know "Workbook" is supposed to be Bob Mould's best solo ouvre, but this one's my favorite:

It's dark, cathartic, obsessive, loud, bitter. All good things, in my book!

I have been listening to Husker Du's Zen Arcade and Warehouse of late, and really, Grant Hart's tunes just haven't aged as well as Bob's songs. His new one is supposed to be coming out soon, so we'll see how it's sounding after the electronica a go go debacle that was his last one. It's supposed to be more guitar-rocking this time, which doesn't guarantee that it'll be good, mind you. I'm just glad he got over the clubby stage.

Not that he hasn't the right to. Like Chris Cornell, Bob is free to follow his bliss all he wants, but I'm not necessarily obliged to go there with him.

  • "Black Sheets of Rain"
  • "Stand Guard"
  • "It's Too Late"
  • "One Good Reason"
  • "Stop Your Crying"
  • "Hanging Tree"
  • "The Last Night"
  • "Hear Me Calling"
  • "Out of Your Life"
  • "Disappointed"
  • "Sacrifice/Let There Be Peace"

  • Anyway, all of this, apropos of my brother Andrés having met the man a short time ago! How jealous am I? Not one iota! The grapes were sour anyway!

    This is Radio Joe on Private Satellite

    Joe Strummer spins his favorite tracks from around the world on these U.S. rebroadcasts of 8 episodes of Joe's "London Calling" radio show he did for BBC's World Service in the late 90's. The thing i get a kick out of the most is his love for Colombian "cumbia", as seen in the above video.

    Get it all, in 3 parts:

    ** 1 * 2 * 3 **

    Quaye Redux

    Hey. Long time no post, I know.

    So here i am.

    This was a request for a reup (from Dead Billy - check out his blog for some more Quaye tunage!), which i don't usually do, but what the hey.

    This is the bonus disc that came along with Finley Quaye's "Maverick". Just 4 songs - 2 vershans of "Your Love Gets Sweeter" plus 2 more.

    Enjoy it if you didn't catch it the first time round!:

    Hello again! Thanks for all the kind comments. Yesterday evening I got back from Guatapé, a small town 2 hours away from Medellín. I took a boat ride around the reservoir, checking out Pablo Escobar's abandoned mansions:

    Next day, I climbed up this rock:

    .. up this staircase:
    .. and saw some of this:
