Let's See if We can Fix the Electric Orange collection.....

Image result for electric orange live 2003I think these links should suffice, I wanted to get everything up before I fixed these.......hopefully these are good, when links are submitted to me, there is sometimes a problem in transfer, or in my upload, but as long as they are pointed out to me, I will do my best to fix them........hopefully these are OK......let me know.

OK, the 0506 file is bad, I'll ask John N if he can resubmit it, sorry, this stuff happens.....

Here is the link for Live 2003 which has been missing I think since the first part of the post:

Sometimes these large posts run into snags, I hope you can forgive it........anyway, thanks for visiting!

Earthless singles and EP's

More of that fab instrumental psych from Earthless......broken into three volumes, we have their collected
singles and EP's, thanks to the work of John N.  All three volumes are fairly large (split) files, so be advised.

VOLUME 1-01 SONIC PRAYER EP (01 Sonic Prayer Jam/02 Sonic Prayer Jam Continued/03 Cherry Red)/02 WITCH/EARTHLESS SPLIT-(01 Witch- Can't Help Doing Wrong/02 Earthless-Jull)/03 LIVE IN GUADALEST (01 From the Ages/02 Godspeed)

VOLUME 2-01 OZ TOUR LIVE IN JAPAN-(01 Godspeed/02 From the Ages)/02 DANAVA/EARTHLESS/LECHEROUS GAZE SPLIT-(01 Danava-The Illusion Crawls/02 Earthless- Woman With Devil Eyes/03 Lecherous Gaze-Get You Some)/03 EARTHLESS LIVE AT THE CASBAH EP (01 Earthless 10th Anniversary Jam Part 1/02 Earthless 10th Anniversary Jam Part 2)/EARTHLESS/PREMONITION 13/RADIO MOSCOW SPLIT-(01 Earthless- Living In the Cosmic Nod/02 Premonition 13-Noche Oscura/03 Radio Moscow-Open Your Eyes/04 Radio Moscow- Magical Dirt)

SPLIT-(01 Earthless-Red/02 White Hills-Under Skin or By Name)/02 LIVE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HILL-(01- Violence of the Red Sea/Sonic Prayer/Woman With the Devil Eye)/03 EARTHLESS/HARSH TOKE SPLIT-(01 Earthless-Acid Crusher/02 Harsh Toke-Mount Swan)/04 THE BAKER SKATEBOARDS EP-(01 End To End (mp3)/02 End to End (wav)

By the way, this is some very fab stuff, and rare (I think) as well......the "split" bands are interesting as well, in particular Radio Moscow, an old favorite of mine.

Cliff's Reggae post, kind of

So, Cliff sent me another reggae post today, and, for whatever reason, I simply cannot get the file to open,
no idea why.......I've asked him to resend it if he can, but he is going on holiday for a short while, so we'll see what happens....anyway I love and look forward to Cliff's reggae submissions, so, in substitution, I'll slip in something from my VERY limited reggae stash.......two volumes of "Hemp: A Reggae Tribute to the Beatles".....yes, I know that compared to Cliff's totally legit posts, this is kind of gimmicky, but it is kind of what I have.....pretty good too really. I hope Cliff would approve!

VOLUME 1-01 ALI CAMPBELL, SLY AND ROBBIE-A HMATANard Day's Night/02 SIG RAGGA-The Fool On the Hill/03 RAS ATTITUDE AND ONENESS BAND-Yesterday/04 LOS PERICOS-Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band/05 MELLOW MOOD-Love Me Do/06 DAVID HINDS-Ticket To Ride/07 QUIQUE NIERA & DUBIES-Across the Universe/08 GROUNDATION-Come Together/09 DESMOND FOSTER-And I Love Her/10 GOMBA JAHBARI-Help!/11 OLODUM-Let It Be/12 PABLO MOLINA & LEOES DE ISREAL-All You Need Is Love/13 RAGING FYAH-You Won't See Me/14 DENNIS BOVELL-Flying/15 NAIROBI & UGO-I Am the Walrus/16 BIG MOUNTAIN-Imagine

VOLUME 2-01 CULTURA PROFETICA-All Things Must Pass/02 NKULEE DUBE & THE ROBOTIKS-Something/03 LA ZIMBABWE-Back In the USSR/04 YELLOWMAN & TIMIAS- In My Life/05 MATAMBA-All My Loving/06 SISTER MARY ELEPHANT-Please Mr. Postman/07 BAHIANO-Blackbird/08 TRIBO DE JAH-Michelle/09 REBELUTION-Please Please Me/10 10 FT GANJA PLANT-You Got to Hide Your Love Away/11 PREZIDENT BROWN-From Me To You/12 MELLOW MOOD & PLATO BANTON-Love Me Do (Reprise)/13 BAMBU STATION-The Inner Light/14 JAHDAN BLAKKAMORE, HUMANIDUB, AND ZION TRAIN-Dear Prudence/15 GAUDI-While My Guitar Gently Weeps/16 RAS MICHAEL & THE SONS OF NEGUS-Give Peace a Chance

Hope ya like it, see ya when ya get back Cliff, have fun and be safe!

Brian - Metal Covers of Eighties Songs!

I've been gathering covers of 80's songs for awhile now, never sure what shape it would all take. My only parameters were they had to be covers of pop tunes: no college rock, metal, or rap songs. I've ended up with about 100 covers, almost all of them from actual releases - not so many YouTube rips as the R•diohead post. An interesting side effect of all this, I found myself with a whole album's worth of metal covers! Keep in mind, it's metal covers of pop songs. Several of these are some of my favorite covers ever, just great reimaginings! The other four volumes will be coming in a few days, but since this came together so easily I wanted to get it to you. I am cackling with glee at the thought of this one!

We start with Austrian Death Machine's version of the "T2 Theme". Remember those three albums of theirs I posted last year? Didn't think so. Disturbed's great cover of "Shout" comes from their first album. Linea 77 bring a dose of East Coast hardcore to "Walk Like An Egyptian". Leo Moracchioli's metal version of "Never Gonna Give You Up" came from YouTube. Look up the video; he plays all the instruments himself, and the guy is gonzo! It's fun to watch.

Colombian group Los Rabanes do a great Spanish language version of "Electric Avenue" that rocks like hell! American thrashers Lich King drop a meaty, pitch-perfect rendition of "Hot For Teacher"... love itDownplay's cover of "Cruel Summer" owes more than a little to the earlier Disturbed song, but I like it. And a surprising find, Children of Bodom fucking rip up "Jessie's Girl", finding a song that suits their synthesizer proclivities.

Now, by this point you guys have heard any number of strange covers coming from me... but Panzerballet's version of the Dirty Dancing song almost defies description! Starting with a straightforward pop vocal, then moving into the jazz fusion verses, before it gets all metal on the choruses, it's gotta be heard to be believed! Northern Kings are a Finnish metal supergroup, and they bring the right amount of grandiosity to "We Don't Need Another Hero". Warmen is also a Finnish group, and they perform a sleek, metalicized version of "Like A Virgin" (still sung by a woman, fortunately).

In his career, Marilyn Manson has done many 80's covers, and his breakout song was his version of "Sweet Dreams". But I've always thought his cover of "Tainted Love" from Not Another Teen Movie was better, so that's here. Madison Apart turn "Love Is A Battlefield" into a still-melodic scream fest. Vision Divine are an Italian power metal band, and they swing for the fences with their cover of "Take On Me". With the overdriven synthesizers and the singer going for his Bruce Dickinson Award, it's a beauty!

"Beds are Burning" was always a fave of mine, and Devilment do a great headbanging version of it. Ten Masked Men (remember their version of "Goldeneye"?) warp Madonna's "Live To Tell" heavily out of shape. Scandinavian metal heroes In Flames give "Land of Confusion" a great crunchy update. And whereas Til Tuesday's original "Voices Carry" was kind of meek and gentle, Dear Enemy's version will fuck you up.

German Dark Wave metallers Umbra et Imago might be the only group that could do "Rock Me Amadeus" justice. Necronomiccon's cover of "Separate Ways" is brilliant, maintaining the melody of the original while still being hardcore black metal. Comes from their great album Mjølnir For Nothing

And we end things with the group Arsis. Remember their "Roses On White Lace" from the Alice Cooper comp? Well, their cover of Corey Taylor's "Sunglasses At Night" just rips from the get-go; metal as hell! I play these last two for people just to watch their expression change!

Hope you guys dig this. There'll be more covers on the way. Now, BANG YOUR HEAD!
