Todd - Purity Pledge LP

I can't even begin to explain just how much I love this band already. It's the remaining Hammerhead guy. Hammerhead fans?

"The Sun's Gone Dim and the Sky's Turned Black" - Johann Johannsson

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4z4drbvb6tI

As usual, I'm late to the party on this - but here's the Wired magazine nutshell:

http://www.wired.com/culture/art/news/2007/07/IBM1401_Musical (EDIT: suddenly the link doesn't work. Google it.)

I stumbled on some of the original source material last week...

http://ed-thelen.org/1401Project/Movies-n-Sounds.html

...in my search for goofy vintage computer pics to fuck with for album covers/eye candy on our myspace page. This of course led me to Johannsson's work, he being the son of the man responsible for the original recordings...

http://ausersmanual.com

One might be looking for more obvious usage of the source material in the work, and it is there:

"Echoing throughout the piece is a four note theme, a fragment of the old Icelandic hymn "Ísland ögrum skorid" by Sigvaldi Kaldalóns, which is taken from the old recording of the IBM computer. The short melody is looped, providing a cantus firmus to which string melodies are added in counterpoint. The printer and computer noises join in to create a thick web of sound which builds and develops slowly."

But it's the provenance that is more important, and what makes this rock harder than anything else this week - the emotional connection between man and machine.

Oh man, Slug were GREAT. I loved that band. I've still got all the records. Three Man Themes is great, the singles are great, Out Sound is great. As far as Hammerhead, yes, it's definately of the same type of 90's Amrep noise rock. I'm gonna say that Hammerhead was noticeably better though. Slug were a great great band (and great live...saw em once open for the J Lizard), but definately aren't quite as good as Hammerhead were. Find the 'Into the Vortex' LP. Top notch from beginning to end. 'Duh, the big City' is a very close runner up.

Not their best songs, but here's some samples...
http://www.myspace.com/amrephammerhead

You know, if you like this stuff, and you've not heard it, the Cherubs 'Heroine Man' LP for me, is the single best LP of this type of music ever made.

Witchcraft - Leva

This is the most retro of retro of retro bands I've ever heard. Somehow, I still can't resist....

Well, looks like I'm not going anywhere today because we're going to get crushed by this huge Winter storm...anyone else in the states gonna get some of this? I imagine Jeronimo and Rocket are...

Yep dudaLope - I was gonna have to go out and Christmas shop all day - instead, I get to stay in super chill.

Today...
+/- = "Fadeout"
off - Let's build a Fire

HA!! We escaped the winter storm wrath!! Man, that would have made work a nightmare. We are so busy right now, all I do is work,eat,sleep,and post on the Swervediver forums.

This might sound bad but I do hate the holiday season. No offense to those who like it.

Song for the day is: "No Presents For Christmas" - King Diamond

Going out for dinner now....Prime Rib!!! Beer.

Rocket, go on youtube and look up Riddle of Steel. There's a show up from September with a bunch of new songs from a show in MI. Tell you the truth, the live versions of the new songs aren't doing it for me, kind of losing their spark in my opinion. Email me if you want some new riddle tracks. A buddy of mine is getting the CD on the 6th. I'll let you know if I have it and upload it.

"Train" - Goldfrapp





I haven't bought it yet Darshun - I was kinda holdin' out to see if your buudy got it...
If you don't see that happening I'll snag it and toss it your way - let me know.

Rocket, I forgot that you're in KC, my buddy Jonny lives near Lawrence if I recall correctly, but will venture to KC for shows on occasion. I think he's in his early 20's, but he knows good music which is a plus. The 2 other guys frequent the Traversing board for the band Dredg but live in KCMO. Not sure the exact whereabouts, but I can ask.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.............


Some Ministry today.

Off the new album The Last Sucker: Watch Yourself and The Dick Song

Pretty good stuff. This is supposed to be Al Jourgensen's last album, hence the name. Ministry got in a little but of a funk for a while but their last three albums have been on point.

If life is but a dream, wake me.
