Music ???

There's a classic rugby video in the comments following Bob's (cool) post on the 9/10 positions.
Good footage, but the noise (music?) that accompanies it is the worst I've heard in my 50 long years and makes me REALLY BAD want an M16 and matching shopping mall.
FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, who in the sam hell thinks that's a worthwhile sound track for rugby ?
What's wrong with the world ?
It's like walking out the front door and there's no gravity.
Somebody should do something..

Some really obscure music/albums listed on this web page:

This particular album caught my eye:

It's a little-known fact that @Dismal was NZ's first (& to date only) Next Top Male Model, winning the title when both the other finalists succumbed to the effects of some mushrooms @Dismal cooked up in the NZNTMM house (but did not himself consume, it being "just not right for a fun guy to eat fungi, it's pretty much cannabilism").

As part of his prize package (the rest being $100 worth of KFC vouchers & a giant chocolate Easter Bunny) he picked up a modelling contract worth twenty bucks a week & sat for that now-famous Skeptics CD cover. Sadly, but predictably, the suits stiffed him royalties-wise (there being none after the suits had deducted their fees) so he stormed out've the record company, relocated to Pitcairn & has since then been using his avatar as a means of reminding the suits (who, truth be told, don't give a fuck about rugby) that he's owed.

All true.

Although when you call homebake and mushrooms "homebake mushrooms" it sounds surprisingly appetising.

Then 20 mins later reality sets in and it's holy shit what the hell was that

ps more mancave action. Yes, that's Byron with his head cut off. Happened the day I got him. Instant decapitation. No questions asked. OFF.

In my once & once-only experience, a cat appearing to turn itself inside out. And then it got weird :)

Talk about unforgiving: throw him in chains & flog him like a Strayan bitching about McCaw being offside all day long but decapitation strikes me as being a little extreme. I'm guessing the homebake mushrooms were especially tasty that day........

not sure. do remmeber the Affco video being **BANNED** from being aired on "Radio with Pictures" around then though. Which of course made every prick desperate to see it


David Bowie: DEAD. Not sure why it's so surprising, maybe he was just so much larger than life that he just didnt seem like someone parsed to the dying equation. Somehow. Didnt consider myself a fan, then I look at my piles of records and hello, there's about 3 lp's by him and 3 ep's.

"Low" lp his high, iHomo


in a record store yesterday got to chatting with the old vendor bloke, he asks me how many recs I have, I say "about 3,000, too many, from here to here, blah blah, big brag, angry wife haha" and so on. Then I ask him how many he's got and he smiles like an insane cheshire cat and says "oh, about double this shop. About 40,000"

40 fucking thousand.

Thats not even counting the dozens of thousands in his fuckin record shop, all of which he also owns

That has to be at least 20 times as many as me and my poxy 3,000-odd take up a whole goddamn small room.

3,000 is pretty good.......... I think my collection might only be half of that?

If I had the disposable income I had ten years ago I would probably need a shop too..............

The rate I was buying records between around 2003 - 2007........... good times.........

Australian record prices means I can only treat myself to one per month if I'm lucky.............

I think we now pay about triple the price of US retailers.

You can thank our ridiculous parallel importation laws for that. Same for books. It shits me to tears.

so bored i thought i'd type out my favourite 42 Doom Metal lp's

Genre'd from discogs. (odd how discogs don't recognise BLACK SABBATH as doom metal)

42 Sleep - Dopesmoker - most would have this higher but it's just too hectic for me
41 Goatsnake - Black Age Blues
40 WarHorse - As Heaven Turns To Ash... fairly forgettable tracks here.... but its such an arse-bludgeon I had to include it
39 Corrupted / Noothgrush -cookie monster vocals the deal breaker for Corrupted
38 Sunn O))) & Boris - Altar
37 Goatsnake - Trampled Under Hoof
36 Goatsnake - I + Dog Days
35 Boris - Amplifier Worship
34 Monolord - Vænir
33 Monolord - Empress Rising
32 Goatsnake / Burning Witch
31 Acid King - III
30 Acid King - Free / Down With The Crown - treacle fuzz sleepytime. Monotonous and boring. Just the way I like it
29 Electric Wizard - Come My Fanatics...
28 Torche - Restarter
26 Goatsnake - Flower Of Disease
26 Corrupted - Paso Inferior
25 Corrupted - Se Hace
24 Neurosis - Given To The Rising
23 Harvey Milk - s/t
22 Cavity - Supercollider
21 Neurosis - A Sun That Never Sets
20 Conan - Blood Eagle
19 Acid King - Busse Woods
18 Harvey Milk - The Singles
17 Torche - In Return
16 Harvey Milk - Life...The Best Game In Town
15 Earth - A Bureaucratic Desire For Extra-Capsular Extraction- heard their others arent too flash. But this is glory time monotony drudgeland
14 Torche - Meanderthal
13 Neurosis - Through Silver In Blood
12 Isis - SGNL>05 12"
11 Isis - Celestial
10 Conan - Monnos
9 Neurosis - Sovereign 12"
8 Electric Wizard - Dopethrone
7 Melvins - Lysol
6 Conan - Horseback Battle Hammer. faaaahhhhhhhk
5 Conan / Slomatics
4 Neurosis - Souls At Zero
3 Harvey Milk - Courtesy And Good Will Toward Men
2 Neurosis - Times Of Grace. my #1 from the day it came out in late 90's until about 2 years ago when...
1 Harvey Milk - A Small Turn Of Human Kindness. Perfection. The apogee of misery. The nadir of No. Sounds like one seamless track, the soundtrack to despair. Starts slow and stays slow. They take their sweet motherfucking time doing ANYTHING here. The music comes to them, they do not go to it. The great ones seem to have all the time in the world. Put this on with unwelcome guests over and they will NEVER come back. NOT for listening to in the company of others. Fuck em, you dont need them. You've got this.

Sun O))) - Monoliths & Dimensions is my clear favourite, feat. some fine contributors in Eyvind Kang and Julian Priester, and recorded by my man Randall Dunn................

Earth - I much prefer the twangy reincarnate version of the group, particularly The Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Skull (also recorded by RD).............

so lp prices are outpacing Aus wages? I heard NZ is pretty nuts too, folks getting used to seeing NZ$49.95 lp's

New/reissue LP's are generally around AUS$30 - $40, and double LP's generally anywhere between $45-$60.............

The last time I was in the US (2012, when the AUS dollar reigned over the US), I came back with a suitcase worth of LP's.............

I recall picking up Swans The Seer 3LP for maybe $18?

My latest purchase..........

The Group - The Feed-Back

The Group, otherwise known as Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza, was an improvisational collective of experimental composers featuring the one and only Ennio Morricone............

Morricone actually featured the group on a few of his film scores............

A number of record labels have been putting out their reissues lately (including the Australian label - Roundtable)..............

This record is quite CAN-like, featuring funky rhythm section topped off with a mixture of feedback, dissonant guitar lines, piano, screeching violin and horns.

Eyvind Kang
made some mad stuff early on with the Secret Chiefs 3

SWANS, woah thats heavy. A heavy bludgeoning. I'm good for about 20 mins of my taped copy of "Public Castration is a Good Idea" then I cry off. Same with a couple old tapes I have here, the one with the rabbit on the front and "Body to Body, Job to Job". Ouch. Even too dismal for me
