ok this is easy
i get to listen to my fave tracks
from pod playlist
and write about em

in no particular order

the only ones : peter and the pets
i saw em play at the lyceum in 78
richard lloyd came on n played
they were average, im sorry to say
i sat at a table with perretts mum n dad
they gave me his phone number and told me to call him
they gave me a lift home in their white jag
his mum was from vienna i think
they were very nice
i never rang the number tho
then in 1982 after many only ones comparisons
the lead guitarist tracked me n ploogy down in london
and organised a jam
which really meant backing him on some demos
not perrett but the big ugly guy
he was a smacktragedy
as was his ‘orrible missus
nodding off n nearly setting things alight
i was horrified
ploogy was laughing his dutch head off
cos the guy was trying to get me to sing back ups
on one of his songs
and i REALLY didnt want to
i didnt wanna be there at all
jesus can ya believe that was 25 years ago….
anyway this is a great great great track
lazy drawling detached narcotic slurry lou reed
oh yeah you gonna like this one!

eno n budd : their memories
brian eno
i could write a book about his contributions
to rock
here he and harry budd
conjure up their usual melancholia-dust trail
the pianos find simple phrases
their reverberations trigger distant sounds
like strings

king crimson : the talking drum
all manner of sounds
like the buzzing of flies
bongos n bass n drums
the guitar is sick
it swerves n slides side to side
it doubles up
a violin
i feel like im eavesdropping on a conspiracy
paranoia builds up
atonal probe enters from the right
what emotion does this conjure up?
i dunno

blonde redhead : heroine
this is one of those albums
almost every song is a good un
like everything all mixed up
vaguely shoegazery
easy on the ears
beguiling words n melodies
you may like this very much
you may already like this very much!

elo : 10538 overture
the arrangement is so….
the downwards guitar is fucking spectacular
the french horns come in off in the distance
the cellos saw away at the song
its an epic
it was big hit in early seventies
its a true classic
impeccable magnificence
put this one down as one i wish i’d done…

the faces : wicked messenger
a dylan song
the faces slop and stumble thru it
and the result is real rocknroll
feel and emotion
guys who can really play
each occupying their own space
all going on at once
intertwining with each other
the bass playing is a riot
the organ is brilliant
but what would you expect its ian maclagan
ronnie wood on guitar
you can see why the stones wanted this guy
k jones on drums
what a walloper
he gives that kit a fucking good seeing to!
and he always seems to keep going at the end
when the other instruments stop
his trademark
rod stewart belts it out
like his life n soul depended on it
there was a wicked messenger from eli he did come..
oh fiendss this is a lovely mess

hawkwind : seven by seven
the true derangement of drugs n space travel
the place where astronaut n the hierophant meet
the warlock as the captain of the capsule
blast it off!
seven times he cursed their seven tears
the astral path is now your fortuitous role
this is your captain speaking
your captain is dead

jobriath : what a pretty
sick stuff
a dead gay rock star
like if bowie had come from texas or wherever
an ugly dark song
short and nasty

john cale : antarctica starts here
whispery strange unlikely
oh what perfect lyrics
itll chill ya to the bone fiendss
the anaesthetics wearing off
antarctica starts here….

paul williams : old souls
from soundtrack of phantom of the paradise
reincarnation song par excellence
our love is an old love baybee..
i should do a version of this
people ‘d think i wrote it myself
it is achingly beautiful

lou reed : lady day
melodramatic gothic elegant
a huge towering song
a song of helplessness
trying to warn someone who died a long time ago
listen to the way lou sings
after the applause had died down
and the people had drifted away
its very touching
no no oh please now lady day

magazine : shot by both sides (original version)
razor sharp sleek unbelievable when it came out
i was smitten
intelligence AND rock
yeah it can be done
devoto leers sneers and shouts his way thru this classic
its not punk its too good
its not new wave its too good
its …rock!
i was shocked to find what was allowed…

margot smith : bellyman
before tori amos n a whole loada others
there was margot
you know those slightly loopy geniuses with the amazing voices
this was produced by eddie rainer from split enz
its disturbing primitive gorgeous so so sad n weird
native choruses break into the song from somewhere
im the bellyman come to fill you up when you cant get full
nothing on toris new album is a patch on this song
so so before her time
worth seeking out
youll fucking love it

mick ronson : slaughter on tenth avenue
a theme from an old movie
ronson gave it the treatment
ohh lovely guitaring
whatta master
lovely lovely arrangement
ohh you should hear this fiends
amazing little piece of music
itll uplift you in a lovely way

skyray ; jet stream summer
futuristic fluff
skyray are a wonderful instrumental band
like themes to imaginary shows
aqua cool gliding shimmy shammy shimmering glimmering
effortlessly groovy
all skyray stuff is good!

see ya 2morro peepull

    I love The Only Ones. Seeing them live in August (as is AndyL). The guitarist is John Perry – clean now.
    I had a great experience today. Walked into a record store in Solihull and Sealine (EMD version)was playing!! I never thought I’d hear The Chrunch in a shop in England again. Turns out the Manager is a huge fan – has all your albums. I was so excited hearing your dulcet tones.

    hello jj and restaurant mark,
    was at the last cocteau twins show in hotlanta those years ago. what made it for me, besides the jazz, was that moose was the opening band. fucking brilliant band. but alas, no one bought the records.

    jj, dupont was excellent yessaday

    yes, there are smashed pumpkins all over asheville.

    what about a church residency somewhere in the u.s.
    touring’s gotta be cheaper that way and less stressful.

    I know very little from your list…where have i been..

    10 of my favs from this decade 2000 to present in no paticular order:

    Black Mirror – Arcade Fire
    The piano and bass combine to create a rushing river of sound.

    Telepath – The Church
    Beach Boy hamonies crushed by guitar noise and then this beautiful pop song. Ending with more harmonies
    Should have gone gold in several countries. Proves sometimes the best things in life are the biggest secrets.

    Dani California – RHCP
    I know…Radio has burnt
    this one out already, but one of the best songs of the decade in my mind.

    Alice – Tom Waits
    “Arithmatic Arithmatoc, turn the hands back on the clock. How does the ocean rock the boat, how did the razor find my throught. The only strings that hold me here are tangled up around the pier.”

    Quick Ate – Wynton Marsalis
    This song moves so fast it flys. Love that stand up bass.

    Thunder On The Mountain – Bob Dylan
    What can ya say about Robert Zimmerman that hasn’t already been said

    World Wide Suicide – Pearl Jam War protest songs live on…May be the best protest song since masters of war by Dylan…”the tell ya to pry, while the devils on their shoulder”
    Rock and Roll bliss baby

    When The World Ends – Dave Matthews Band…”When the world ends..I’ll be burnin’ one”

    Little Queen of Spades – Eric Clapton from his Robert Johnson cover album…love the organ in this song.

    My City Of Ruins – Bruce Springsteen commentary on uban blight and social decay. Nice statement.
    “with these hands”

    Steve, great list as always. So my wife and I were watching Life on Mars other day (great BBC t.v. series – check it out, Among other things, it features 70’s music since show is set in 1973. At the end of this particular episode, this AMAZING song comes on, I say “That’s gotta be ELO”. Sure enough, go to the show website, check out the episode music list, and it’s the 10538 Overture – just wonderful! They also had You Shouldn’t Do That by Hawkwind on the same episode… Needless to say, I think you’d like the show, if only for the music, but it’s great overall – acting, storyline, etc. Try to find it there if you can.

Bellyman’s been on her site for a while, in case anyone would like a listen, & a cover of Steve’s ‘An Arrangement’ 🙂

    Oh, the music I have discovered because of you. Stuff from the artists on A Box Of Birds, Hawkwind/Floyd from the Spacerock Christmas show.

    It is so wonderful to explore some of the stuff that has made The Church into The Church.

    Richard Lloyd is the man. Met him once at the EMP in Seattle when Television played and in the middle of the conversation he started berating the sound guy, insisting that the show wasn’t supposed to have been recorded. Made me a wee bit nervous after that!

    Tori Amos I consider to be Kate Bush Lite. Only where Kate Bush sings songs about wild, windy moors, Tori Amos sings about her period and other emo/female things, ha!

    Brian Eno is a god. That’s just all there is to it. He is the god of intellect and abstract sound waves just like Prince is the god of gee-tar. I could read your music lists along with everyone else’s all day. Great stuff!

    I don’t have any playlists as of yet, but if I did it would have to include:

    Can – Safe
    It’s Krautrock with a groooove.

    Can – Mushroom
    Insanity encapsulated inside a song with screaming guitars.

    Cheap Trick – Heaven Tonight
    It’s quite the lovely song about drugs and death with Robin sounding particularly demented.

    Comsat Angels – Be Brave
    Hard to believe that U2 used to open for these guys. A hugely underrated band. If this song doesn’t get your feet tapping, nothing will.

    David Bowie – Loving the Alien
    This song could be about anything. Anything at all. But it’s achingly beauty-full all the same.

    The Fall – The Classical
    Hear Mark E. Smith rant about razors and feeling bloated and couple it with a great rock groove.

    Gang of Four – To Hell With Poverty
    This song speaks for itself, as does Andy Gill’s unique guitar playing. By far the best Gang of Four song in existence.

    George Harrison – I’d Have You Anytime
    Poor George…

    The House of Love – Christine
    For obvious reasons, ha! It’s such a lovely melancholy song.

    Ian Brown – Corpses in Their Mouths

    Iggy & The Stooges – Gimme Danger
    What rock n’ roll is all about.

    Joy Division – Leaders of Men
    …just a minor operation…

    Kraftwerk – Trans-Europe Express
    Makes me wanna fly to Berlin everytime I hear ’em…

    Nick Cave – Do You Love Me?
    Probably the most upbeat song that Nick Cave has ever written.

    The Psychedelic Furs – Love My Way
    A blast from the 80’s past.

    Prince – The Beautiful Ones
    Prince wrote this to win the heart of Wendy Melvoin’s sister and stuck it in Purple Rain. You can just imagine Prince lying in a darkened studio on the floor screaming with all his heart at the end for this girl to come to him.

    Richard Hell – Liars Beware

    Syd Barrett – Octopus
    He fronted The Soft Machine with this song and it’s guaranteed to be stuck in your head for days in all of its drug-addled glory

    Tyrannosaurus Rex – The Throat of Winter

    Wire – Blessed State

    2. kings of leon, because of the times.

    3. my morning jacket, it still moves. jim’s voice is haunting..

    4. the who, sell out (always) who by numbers, quad..

    5. ryan adams, easy tiger. a friend of mine from the dando uk board got me into him.

    6. stones, rarities, its only rock- n- roll (fingerprint file), & black and blue if i am feeling like funk..

    7. explosions in the sky. anything by them. great instrumental band.

    8. bowie – hunky dory & aladdin sane (always)

    9. beatles, anthology 3. love the outtakes.

    First gig I went to after seeing the Church in Nov. 1982 was John Cale in March ’83. Just him, solo, switching between piano and guitar. He did a spectral Antarctica, on piano.
    Ronson is my all-time favourite guitarist – finally got to see him in 1990, with Ian Hunter. Ronno sang White Light White Heat in the middle of the set.
    Eno – Needles In The Camel’s Eye: best Velvets song the Velvets never wrote.
    Hawkwind – last gig I saw before I saw the Church in Nov. ’82. Michael Moorcock was on and off with em all night. Saw em twice with Calvert in ’77 and ’78.
    Only Ones – there’s a guy standing at the front in the live bits of the Another Girl video: looks like the young Killa and I knew you’d seen em and often wondered if it realy was you. Guess not! But is it true that the deciding factor in getting Marty into the Church was cos he’d got a leopard-print jacket like Peter Perret’s ?!

    Brian Eno, Tangerine Dream’s Edgar Froese and The ORB (Dr. Alex Paterson) were seminal for ambient and electronic music.

    Radiohead is rightfully deemed an outstanding and very profound band by all the Critics. Below are reasons why The Church are superior to Radiohead.
    1) After Everything Now This is better than The Bends.
    2)Uninvited Like The Clouds surpasses Hail To The Thief.
    3) Sometime Anywhere is trippier and more creative than OK Computer.
    4) Priest=Aura blows away Kid A
    5) Hologram Of Baal tops Amnesiac.

    In all fairness no Church CD prior to Priest=Aura is better than The Bends, OK Computer or Hail To The Thief.

    At times I have to exhibit a feigned intellectual exhibitionism to solace my wounded narcissim. This borderline obese vegetarian gives my best to all my imaginary friends.

    So glad you continued this conversation Steve. yes, yes, love the budd and eno, the only ones, john cale- used to play all these on my radio show.

    I want to say thanks to all whom cheered on Durutti Column. Vini’s been growing on me like The Church where ever I go, even when I’m not listening; the art and architecture studio is the most serious place. I’d also like to see what else the person who said “I’m off in Stan Getz land.” listens to.

    Here’s what’s usually in my turns:
    Durutti Column
    Richard Butler of P.Furs
    Nitin Sawhney
    Morphine/ Treat Her Right
    Dave Brubeck
    Talk Talk/ Mark Hollis
    House of Love/ Levitation
    Crowded House
    Stratford Four

    Dear SK and fiendss,
    I’m still here, though I don’t always have something to say in this little comment box.

    It appears that the “what is art?” debate was touched upon this week. I hope it’s okay if I pick up on that for a moment. As an eternal student of art myself, I would like to think that I have a broad appreciation for art of various types and media. However, I don’t think that an artist’s explanation of what their piece of art means or is about should be the be-all end-all of why it’s art. Unfortunately, this is contrary to many contemporary artists’ and critics’ opinions, and subsequently, that of my professors at art school.

    We’d get an assignment to do a self-portrait in collage on paper, and one student would bring in some abstract pap titling it something like “Self-Portrait in the Winter of My Discontent,” while mine would actually be a figurative collage of my likeness, no title. Guess who got the better grade?

    But I’m not bitter…

    Would love to hear you cover a couple of Leonard Cohen tunes. Thanks for the insight into your iPod shufflery.

    Brien Comerford | 24 June 2007 at 2:24 am #

    Nope nee yup, I am not a biased bloke. The Church became the world’s greatest band in 1992 commencing with Priest=Aura. The last fifteen years they have been peerless. The idiotic world music media stopped listening to them after 1990. The media idiots think that Starfish was their zenith.It was a great album but something in 1992 happened to The Church that elevated them alone in an ethereal echelon only matched by Pink Floyd. If Lennon and Harrison formed a band after the Baetles they could have been at the same level as The Church. Macca is my favorite Beatle but he is not as deep as Kilbey, Lennon and Harrison. Macca is needed in my CD collection because his incessant (and at times grating) optimism is needed to sustain me from the travails of perpetual, existential despair. Oh- the throes of our existence will prevent me from going the distance. I am progressing in life akin to an inflamed pimple on a rectum.

    Okay, here’s one for fans of “monster rock”:

    Dreamtheatre’s Six Degrees of Inner Tension album.

    Track 3 Misunderstood takes rock about as far as it’s likely to go for a while!

    Hey one day you could do some thoughts on visual artists you are into. Your insights on Botticelli’s angels. I’d love to read your art thoughts. Yeah music is art. Kilbey’s interpretation of pictures would be fascinating.

    It’s good to hear other people out there are’nt afaid to say how effin fantastic ELO were. Despite being terminally uncool they’ve been a secret love of mine for years.(what production!) It’s also good to hear you’ve got some stuff on yer i pod thats not totaly ancient. I heard Blonde Readhead for the first time on the radio this very morning and im hooked. Shoegazer rock has always struck a fuzzy chord with me, espesialy when i’m tired. I heard them at 5.30 this morn (a track called 23?)in the middle of a sleepless overworked weekend. Kinda like Lush or My Bloody Valentine but with a really good drummer. I have a thing for dreamy girl vox shoegazey stuff but i also luuurve good drumming , Seldom do the two worlds meet. Thus far 23 is the only track i’ve heard but i’ll be seeking them out.
    Finaly The Only Ones. Ha ! knew you were into them !. My God what a rock tragedy they were. I got quite into there first album when it came out as they were one of the few post punk english bands that could actually play. Then i heard about there smack thing and i was told another girl was not the spaced out love song i thought it was. (smack metaphor instead). Wow you actualy jammed with that guy . What was his (great on record)guitar playing like on smack?…Yeah Peter Perett had one of those face’s didn’t he . The kind of face marking a life that could only end in early death or tragedy. He was kinda pretty in a Dorian Grey sort of a way but then…… You know what i mean. I’m told someone used another girl for an ad or something prompting PP to give it one last whirl. I won’t go and see it . It’d make me feel old… But best of British luck to ya PP anyway. Ya thrilled the pants of me when i was 15 and thats still worth somethin. To me at least…

    I loved The Cult. They were The Church for me before I found religion (the Church, of course). Funny, The Cult, The Church, The Cult, The Church, The Cult, The Church, The Cult, The Church, The Cult, The Church, The Cult, The Church, The Cult, The Church, The Cult, The Church, The Cult, The Church, The Cult, The Church, The Cult, The Church, The Cult, The Church, The Cult, The Church, The Cult, The Church, The Cult, The Church, The Cult, The Church, The Cult, The Church, The Cult, The Church, The Cult, The Church,

    The Talking Drum…ah yes.
    What a tremendous musical kick in the pants King Crimson was (is).
    This lineup that recorded Lark’s Tongue In Aspic was the best. Hands down.
