Eyvind Kang's solo works are all brilliant IMO, in particular - Theater of Mineral NADEs and Live Low to the Earth, In the Iron Age.............

I don't really listen to the earlier Swans as much (mostly Body to Body, Job to Job when I do)..............

My fondness actually lies in their most recent albums, plus Soundtracks for the Blind.

Nope, looks like it was just you and the Boss, chief.
Although I have owned all his glory days lp's over the course of my life.

Wild The Innocent:4/10 sort of passed me by
Greeting Asbury park:4/10 ditto
Born To Run: 5/10 iHomo, hasnt aged well. too overwrought seppo-y
Darkness on the edge of town: 9/10. magnum opus iHomo.
The River: 5/10. reacquired after 20 year gap. aside from Hungry Heart, didnt thrill
Nebraska: 8/10. godhead.
Born in usa 6/10. loved this back in the 80's but weird how little guitar it really has compared to all the wussy 80's keyboards

One of his later albums that I really liked was Devils & Dust from 2005.

Well worth checking out if you're a fan. The songs on it were mostly written quite a lot earlier.

NEIL YOUNG - After The Gold Rush

SPARKS - Kimono My House
weird, I only like the 80's period of this band (Angst in my pants) and couldnt connect at all with those first 70's lps
SUICIDE - Suicide (yeah yeah, why did I only just pick this up.)
took me a while to come around to the casiotone blip blip thing but oh God Frankie Teardrop
BAD BRAINS - Bad Brains
thrashed to deth. burned out
new to this LP. rooting it.
BIG BLACK - Songs About Fucking
had this on tape and LP since it came out. Still, after all the years, the best way to clear a room of unwanted guests.

ROLLING STONES - Exile on Main St
had a zillion copies of this but mustve burnt out on it in teen years. cant stand it now. Still, first consciousness is so strong I'll probably buy it again.
TALKING HEADS - The Name of This Band is Talking Heads
idiotaclly sold this superb 2xLP even though its my 3rd favourite TH release (after Remain in Light then Fear of Music. MORAN.)
PERE UBU - The Modern Dance
rooted this one for a long time and still have it but weirdly the vocal inflections gradually turned me off the band completely. Oddly, still the LOUDEST live band I have ever seen.

MARK LANEGAN BAND bubblegum CD this guy has been either a huge yes or a huge no for me. These two, the latter.

That Afghan Whigs album is great. Certainly their best.

Most Dinosaur Jr albums are great. J Macsis is an amazing musician.

Mark Lanegan made an album a few years ago with the main guy from Afghan Whigs, Greg Dulli. They were called Gutter Twins and the album was Saturnalia. It was pretty decent.

Some might think this is a worse use of thread space.

I recently watched the movie Hell or High Water staring Jeff Bridges, Chris Pine and Ben Foster.

Best movie I have seen in years. It also has an amazing sound track. I ordered in from Sanity and just keep playing it. So dam good.

Got a strong country feel, bit dirgey in places but all quality. There is a lot of Nick Cave instrumental in between the tracks that is mood music for the movie, some of that is out there. But the tracks all Gold.

Here's one from YouTube with movie footage. Recommend the movie if you haven't seen it. Was on Big pond a few weeks ago.
