Filling a request for Fabio

Since he sends so many great links to us, the least I can do is answer the guy when he requests up
something, in this case The Jesus and Mary Chain's "Stoned and Dethroned", from about 1994 I think.....this is the album that features guest vocalist Hope Sandoval on the track "Sometimes/Always"........the reason the track is significant is the teaming of what  is probably THE most bored sounding female singer in history (Sandoval) as well as the most bored sounding male singer as well (Jim Reid of JAMC).......really, it is a good single, as is the underappreciated "Come On"......glad I could help you out Fabio, enjoy, and thanks for all you do for our blog.

  1. "Dirty Water" - 3:08
  2. "Bullet Lovers" - 3:39
  3. "Sometimes Always" - 2:32
  4. "Come On" (J. Reid) - 2:13
  5. "Between Us" - 2:59
  6. "Hole" (Jim Reid) - 2:15
  7. "Never Saw It Coming" - 3:32
  8. "She" (Jim Reid) - 3:08
  9. "Wish I Could" - 2:42
  10. "Save Me" (J. Reid, W. Reid) - 2:43
  11. "Till It Shines" - 3:17
  12. "God Help Me" - 2:47
  13. "Girlfriend" - 3:16
  14. "Everybody I Know" - 2:13
  15. "You've Been a Friend" (J. Reid) - 3:37
  16. "These Days" - 2:31
  17. "Feeling Lucky" - 2:18

Return of The Brian Jonestown Massacre

Psych-rockers Brian Jonestown Massacre certainly will never be accused of poor work ethic, they have
released a ton of albums, this one, "Third World Pyramid" (2016) is interesting enough, as have been most of their stuff....this would be, by my count, album number before, plenty of everything-but the kitchen sink experimentation, a solid effort, wanted to point out the track "Government Beard" which I liked a good bit......this submission, like most of our previous BJM stuff (I THINK we've put ALL of it up, not certain) comes from the link beast that is John N, thanks for this and all you do John!

1. Good Mourning
2. Governmant Beard
3. Don't Get Lost
4. Assignement Song
5. Oh Bother
6. Third World Pyramid
7. Like Describing Colors To A Blind Man On Acid
8. Lunar Surf Graveyard
9. The Sun Ship

This is quite a solid album indeed, my hat's off to a band that can stay consistently good for such a long stretch of time.

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats

From Cambridge England we have another Fabio submission, this one from Uncle Acid & the
Deadbeats.....despite the goofy name some heavy, hard rocking stoner metal.....kind of "old school" stoner rock, at times they remind of The Stooges or MC5 or Alice Cooper, all blended with Black Sabbath......really impressive in my opinion. This is a 2011 release, beats hell out of me why I've not heard of it before.

BLOOD LUST-01 I'll Cut You Down/02 Death's Door/03 Over and Over Again/04 Curse in the Trees/05 I'm Here to Kill You/06 Ritual Knife/07 Withered Hand of Evil!CAACQTzD!fT4u0IMoSY6bCQjlVuYv6Q

The Moonshine Brand

Fabio sends us a Bandcamp link for youngsters The Moonshine Brand (Germany) and their recent EP,
"Welcome to Gypsy Town"......I never heard of em, so I carpet bombed it and pretty good, really,
solid stoner is a small blurb from their Bandcamp:
A crack of doom in the Streets of Dawn. 

Sparks of light fall through the dawning and the dew shines golden, shimmering like a sea of diamonds. The child turns around. Struck down by moonshine, the eye opens, the ear opens and the integrity of all worlds becomes part of the living. 

Now the child has its name, tempted by eternity and left 
with The Moonshine Brand

WELCOME TO GYPSY TOWN-01 Alien Nation/02 Unpainting the Now/03 Terrapin Girl/04 Welcome to Gypsy Town

And remember, I love stuff like this, unknown stuff, so if you stumble across a cool band on Bandcamp or whatever, be sure and send in the link......I especially appreciate when the bands themselves help their own cause by sending the stuff in themselves.

Bush rarities

I made this 2 disc set of Bush rarities a couple of years ago, heard some Bush today and thought about
dragging these out, I thought they were good and homemade comps have occasionally fallen flat, I really think these are solid, they are my tribute to Gavin Rossdale, as, unlike me, he has had his very fortunate face between the thighs of Gwen Stefani, thus making him my idol.

RARE BUSH DISC 1-01 Revolution Blues (live)/02 Bubbles (From "Mallrats" Soundtrack)/03 Bud (From Machinehead single)/04 Solomon's Bones (Machinehead single)/05 Greedy Fly (Greedy Fly Single)/06 Insect Kin (live) (Greedy Fly Single)/07 Old (live) (Greedy Fly Single)/08 Personal Holloway (live) (Greedy Fly Single)/09 Cold Contagious (16 Oz. Demo Version)/10 Homebody (Chemicals Between Us Single)/11 The Chemicals Between (Radio Edit) (Chemicals Between Us Single)/12 Chemicals Between Us (Super Collider Vapor Version) (Chemicals Between Us Single)/13  Chemicals Between Us (US Promo Single)

RARE BUSH DISC 2-01 Chemicals Between Us (Original US Demo Version)/02 Letting the Cables Sleep
(Letting the Cables Sleep UK Single)/03 Letting the Cables Sleep (Apocalypse Mix) (Letting the Cables Sleep Single)/04 Letting the Cables Sleep (Gladiator Remix) (Letting the Cables Sleep UK single)/05 Letting the Cables Sleep (Nightmare on Wax Remix) (Letting the Cables Sleep UK Single)/06 Letting the Cables Sleep (Original Demo) (Letting the Cables Sleep UK single)/07 American Eyes (The People That We Love EP)/08 The People That We Love (Golden Dub Remix) (The People That We Love EP)/09 The People That We Love (instro) (The People That We Love EP)/10 Inflatabale (Headful of Ghosts EP)/11 Hurricane (live in Brussels)/12 Inflatable (Radio Remix)

I'm not the best at creating these type of projects, LOTS of the team here can do em better than can I....but I DO happen to like this one, there is some good stuff on here........hope you all enjoy it, and I hope it encourages everyone to create their own rarities comps from their fave bands!

More Classic Jesus and Mary Chain

Inline image 1Sure I've posted these before, and of course Jon S had that incredible J&MC mega-post a while back, but so what? This is the fuckin' CHAIN........ Fabio submits three of their classics, "Psychocandy", "Darkland", and "Automatic"......all tremendous in their own way ("Psychocandy" imo is something of an era-defining album, and almost indescribeably influential) the way, Fabio, the J&MC album with Hope Sandoval is (I think this is what you mean) "Stoned and Dethroned", Hope sings on the single "Sometimes/Always" this the album you mean? Let me know if it is and I'll put it up for ya!
