a.k.a. "Currently Litsening to..." but with short reviews.

(a) Green River - Dry as a Bone/Rehab Doll

I can't figure out how to approach these albums (packaged on one CD). Is it ground-breaking, vitally important proto-grunge, partially kickstarting the entire late-eighties Seattle scene? Is derivative gunk by a so-so band with serious Iggy, Ozzie, Sleve Tyler and Stiv Bators complexes? Is it just good, hookfilled, slightly biker-metally punk? All of the above? I think I like it. But I'm not sure. The first of these albums contains only five short tracks - does that even count as an album? - but has some sort of energy and sense of deluded fun that makes it very appealing in a slightly twisted way. The second, well, let's just say it's more Soundgarden. Still, not bad. I dunno... :clueless:

(b) Neu! - Neu! 75

Reissue of the Year 2001 IMO. To finally be able to get hold of Neu!'s albums was something I'd hoped to be able to do for quite a while. Still, I was mildly dissapointed with the debut effort when I got it last october, so I never got around to buying the other two until by some chance I got around to getting this one. Wow! Possibly confirming my "bands breaking up make good music" thesis, this gyrates from avant-garde piano moods to shouty proto-punk via beautifully haunting whispered soundscapes. I even think Laz would like it- it seems to carry his sort of emotional engagement.

Laz's Pollute your ears CD: http://www.freefirezone.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1445

Black Label Society, Brewtality Live:

Raw guitar based rock and roll, heavy, fast, pinch harmonic filled genius from Ozzy Ozbourne's guitarist's solo project. I can't think of anything I own which could be said to rock as hard as this.

Neu 75- I've got it and I like it. I'm a big Krautrock fan. Neu were good, but Can were the best, particularly their first 4 albums. "Monster Movie" is brilliant.

Nice band from the 70ies is Hans-A-Plast, I don't think they're available on CD.

Zakk Wylde is a cool guitarist his first project was Pride and Glory a Country/Southern Rock Metal kind've affair, and a lovely collection of Les Pauls to boot
