Fabio with another submission!

Fabio with another obscure-o, at least to me, this one is from Dope Default, an EP entitled "Tales From
the Wasteland".........again unfamiliar with this, so searching for info I shall go........

here's a bit:
Greek riffmeisters Dope Default tweaked a few ears back in August 2015 when the Thessaloniki based band released their debut EP "Nuclear Honeymoon" an eclectic mix of hard rock crunch and grunge tinted stoner fuzz,.Fast forward a year and a few months and with a subtle change in musicalDIRECTION Dope Default return with a brand 
new EP " Tales From The Wasteland".

TALES FROM THE WASTELAND-01 Atonement/02 Law of Blood/03 Insexicatiaon/04 Cold Train/05 Nuclear Honeymoon/06 Preacher

Good disc, this one is (scott)

Sula Bassana

Again, fabio sends a link for something intriguing, he calls Mr. Bassana the best guitarist he's ever seen
perform live, sounds like a heck of a recommendation to me......this recording is Live at Roadburn Festival, 2014......another info search

Time has come – once more: Sula Bassana walks on electronic trails again and produces an album in the attitude of electronic krautrock! 
After the trance-like album «Kosmonauts» (2010), a further album, based mostly on electronic instuments. This time, the sound is obvious more characterized by all the vintage instruments, which Sula accumulated in his Amoebenklangraum over the decades... 
All songs composed, performed, recorded, mixed and produced by Sula Bassana / Dave Schmidt. Mastered by Eroc ( Cover painting made by Frank Lewecke ( 
On this album Sula used Synthesizers, Organs, Drummachines, Sequencer, Mellotron, Guitar, Bass, toy-Mandoline. 
LP on marbled 180 grams vinyl, lim. to 500 copies! 
Very last 3 vinyl copies here:

LIVE AT ROADBURN 2014- (No track list I can locate)

Harsh Toke

Fabio sends this one in "appreciation" of the fact that we loved "Arctic", this is the other band of Arctic guitarist Figgy Figueroa.......again I will quickly seek out some info is possible........well, here's a bit:
Psychedelic rockers HARSH TOKE explore sound and spaceTHROUGH music. On the San Diego Acid Rock band's debut album Light Up and Live, loud, heavy guitars, swimming bass lines and smashing drums warp to full throttle, working together to launch the group's "Haze Maze" of unapologetic psychedelic-blues into interstellar overdrive. Recorded by Brian Ellis (also of the prog-rock band ASTRA) and mastered by Carl Saff (Earthless, OFF!, Unsane), HARSH TOKE's Light Up and Live will be released on November 19 via Tee Pee.
Led by ripping pro skater and rip-roaring guitarist Justin "Figgy" Figueroa, HARSH TOKE are equal parts atmospheric and anarchic, merging raging, blind fury musicianship with unprecedented white-knuckle volume abuse. Tense and surreal, HARSH TOKES' songs slowly build from hallucinatory haze into grand overtures of noise and feedback; a cosmic buffet of pounding, pummeling and punishing planes of sound. Heavy. Cosmic. Kinetic.

HARSH TOKE lay down sizzling grooves with every needle on the soundboard pinned to the red. If Blue Cheer could be called "Louder than God" in 1968, forty five years later, HARSH TOKE can easily be pegged as "Louder than Satan." RunFOR YOUR lives - into the din.

Wolf People

Fabio sends us another stoner band, this one I don't know (my fave kind), Britain's Wolf's a writeup on them, link below......please, everyone, I LOVE obscure stoner bands if you dona't know that by now......keep em coming! And huge thanks to Fabio, GREAT hard rocking shares of late, keep em coming!

 Wolf People - 2016 - Ruins.rar

Britain’s Wolf People may as well be called Earth People. The four-man psych/prog/folk rockers have created a musical beast that is grizzled, primitive and speaks of a utopia where nature reclaims the land around us. The title of their latest album, Ruins, refers to the ruins of civilization, according to singer/guitarist Jack Sharp. “We’re constantly veering towardsCOMPLETE frustration with the human race one moment,” he says, “and celebrating all the positive things about humanity the next.”
The trick is to do this without sounding trite or preachy, and on Ruins, they largely succeed. One of the keys to getting back to nature with a minimum of self-conscious navel-gazing is to look to the influence of rock’s heavier, earlier bands. To that end, Ruins works spectacularly. It may be 2016, but this album has a sound and feel straight out of the early ‘70s. There are hints of Led Zeppelin, snatches of Black Sabbath and huge chunks of Jethro Tull crammed into the mix, but it never really sounds derivative. The band’s youthful exuberance taps into thePOWER of proto-folk metal while simultaneously keeping everything fresh and original.
Opening track “Ninth Night” is an accurate doorway into the sounds and words of Ruins, as stately, minor-key acoustic guitar reminiscent of Rush’s more pastoral moments collapses into a fuzzy, chugging mid-tempo beat and Sharp’s distorted vocals set the scene: “Let those who rest more deeplySLEEP / Let those awake their vigils keep / Oh hand of glory shed thy light / Direct us to our spoils tonight.” Not exactly party anthems here, and while this kind of atmosphere can lead to pretentious Spinal Tap moments in lesser hands, Wolf People have the chops and the insight to make it all fall together with grace, muscle and aplomb.
There are times when the retro-bluesy vibe descends into noisy chaos, like on the bruising “Night Witch”, but it’s tempered with an even-handed loud/soft dynamic. Freewheeling electric guitar riffs soar, but are lightened with almost folk-like verses. The chilling “Crumbling Dais” gives the retro-loving band plenty to chew on as the song’sOPENING 25 seconds are a mini-overture fueled either by a dusty mellotron or actual flutes (hard to tell—I like to think it’s the former. Mellotrons aren’t making the comeback I’d like them to).
In keeping with concept album tropes, there are even three different versions of a song: “Kingfisher”, “Kingfisher Reprise” and “Kingfisher Reprise II”. The two “sequels” are essentially instrumental recaps and are great examples of Wolf People—a band that also includes guitarist Joe Hollick, bassist Dan Davies and drummer Tom Watt—taking a potent musical concept and threading it through the album. As on the rest of the album, these three tracks marry woodsy electric blues with a strong, almost funky backbeat. It’s aCOMBINATION that sets the band apart from nearly all of their peers.
Ruins is too pastoral for metal. Too prog for indie rock. Too punk for folk and too jammy for punk. In a word: uncategorizable. Most of the best—and unfortunately, underrated—music of today bears that label. Wolf People is a band that’s both ahead of its time and constantly mining the past for inspiration. Ruins is both a rallying cry for aRETURN to nature and a reminder that the meat-and-potatoes basics of rock and roll shouldn’t be dismissed in favor of passing fads.

Cliff Notes Part 2

(scott) As noted before, Cliff's latest great reggae share is a big one, so I've split it in three parts (with
his blessing, of course)....this being the second.....I think I might have posted some of these before, but I think I might have gotten confused as to how many discs comprise the set, or something.....I know Cliff knows his shit, so I will vouch for completeness this time.

(cliff) I seem to recall that sometime last year our main man Scott posted a few discs of reggae cover versions of Beatles songs.  Since that time I'ave always meant to post this 3 disc Trojan Box Set but for some reason or another, probably old age forgetfulness, I have never got round to it.  Reggae acts have never been slow to turn out reggae versions of songs from other genres and this shows that the Beatles sounds were no different for them. Alongside the typical Beatles songs are a number of John Paul and George's solo efforts although Ringo appears to be ignored.  As with cover versions sometimes they can be a bit hit and miss but on the whole this set is generally enjoyable, worth a listen anyway if only for curio value.
