Friday Music

It's Friday. I need music.

Okay, it's Thursday, but tomorrow will be chaotic, so I figured I'd start this week's music post on Thursday.

Hoop's got me checking out some spunk by a band called Spill Canvas. It's very Hoopish, and it's got me in the mood for upbeat music. I'm gonna hit up some Hendrix next. If you can send me links along with your suggestions, like good ol' Anon did last week, then I'll be like, "Word."

Oh, this is pretty interesting, if you haven't heard it yet:

AC/DC "High Voltage"
Every song is good.

rob: Sadly we don't have that one around here, but we do have lots of AC/DC. I'm kicking some of it now.

Summer Highland Falls. You better know who.

SleekPelt said...

raoul: My brother. As if there's a chance I wouldn't know who. And I've been rocking out so much that it's time to take it down a notch. Billy comin' up.

I've been on an Ian McKaye rampage lately. Fugazi's albumn Repeater and The Evens second record Get Evens. Also been rocking Dinosaur Jr. on the regular.

SleekPelt said...

anon: I agree with you on both counts.

For a good tune, listen to:

Robert Randolph and the Family Band - Love Is The Only Way In (featuring DMB)...

No Video on the tube, sorry...

Its on his new Colorblind cd...

SleekPelt said...

Taj Mahal told me he wants to play some blues for you, sleek. Up close and personal:

That Cornell song really, really sucks. What happened to him? It's like he's been nuetuered since the SG days.

Anyway, for some Canadian music check out this oldie--
The Pursuit of Happiness-She ain't pretty

take the clown down, it's freakin me out, man.

SleekPelt said...

anon: I really like Robert Randolf and the Family Band, and that song is on their MySpace page. Good stuff.

SleekPelt said...

anon: The Taj Mahal was great, and I especially liked the first one.

matthes: Just be glad I didn't play you his cover of "Borderline"! I'm not finding that song by Pursuit of Happiness.

raoul: As you wish. ;)

Old Leo Kottke, Louise ..is not half bad, his 12 string stuff, eight miles high, some cloudy day etc...the bomb!

Hattica said...

Hopefully it isn't too hectic for you to jam out a little.

1. 311 "Use of time"
2. Scorpions "The Zoo"
3. Green day "Working Class Hero"
4. Dick Dale "Ring of Fire"
5. L'Arena (Kill Bill Sndtrk) Super cool tune and perfect for a dreary Friday mid-morning.

All this stuff is on my Itunes account.

I may sound like a broken record, but I just down loaded a Phil and Friends show with Trey and Joan Osborne, spectacular work.

I forgot about this until the other day. I don’t like these so and so vs. so and so mixes normally, but this one works, kind of.

And your Chris Cornell reference reminded me of that great cover of Black Hole Sun off the Longe-a-Palooza CD.

For an 80s kickback, I think this song was written about the Reagan - Thatcher administrations. It makes as much sense now.

Then spin some Kirsty Maccoll - you must have some?

Finally the lunatics in the GO! Team have a new single out…

Raul:
Thats where I got this show I think.
I grabbed some shows from there and although it was a little clunky getting them, the ones I got were great, thanks for the lead.
I may stay in a thin vein but there sure are a bunch of ways to play the same songs, maybe I am a broken record.
I rate a show by how hard I rock in my chair sitting in an air port.

totally with you on that one Mom or else I wouldn't see the same bands up to 10 times a year. I love jam rock. There was a dead show on there that had Duane and Gregg Allman with the Dead for a 33 minute Lovelight. It was a little different than their studio album ;)
