Show #12 Best contenders of 2006

Lots of great rock music always comes in the 4th Quarter and most will  not measure up to the impossible task of putting together a best of list. This has been months in making. There are some pretty well known creators who will be shadowed by lesser known giants; who've humbly and unknowingly put forth their best effort. The pay-off is a sweat spicey honey sauce that is sure to please even the most picky of taste buds. The best contenders show has some great tunes by bands like: The Flaming Lips, Trail of Dead, Easy Star All-Stars,  Devics, Belle & Sebastian, Clap you hands say yeah, Neko Case, M. Ward, Grandaddy, Thom Yorke and Built to Spill. By no means did I get through the all the fantastic albums on my list but as it looks right now some will make it and others will loose. So download and let me place your order at this establishment. The output will surprise you as all good music should.

Give the bassplayer some

Post image
This podcast visits the mysterious ones. The bass players. I don't drop too many names but the fact is if your drummer can handle what the bassplayer dishes out your band is bound to be pretty driving, so give the bass player some: Flamming lips, dinosoure jr, Melvins, The Jesus LizardfIREHOSE, Mission of Burma, Alice Donut, Gang of Four, Pavement, Fugazi, Ben Folds Five with background music by interpol from Bright Lights and Sonic Youth off of Confusion is Sex. All the secrets are inside. There are only four strings and those that make them count know when not to play.

Show #8 Le Rock Sheik

Lets start out spring properly with some sheik driving music by True Love and their track "Burn Rubber", followed by "Art Class" by Superchunk, "Hanging" by north jersey's Teenbeaters, a Bowie cover by Crooked Finders, "Rise up with fists" by Jenny Lewis with the Watson twins, a dischord duo called The Evens featuring Ian Mckaye and amy farina from the warmers, a Who cover by The Flaming Lips, b/w another "Revolution" by Grandaddy, followed by "The King of Teaneck" by AMCIty's Clydesdale because you can't handle the new disco, and finishing it up is a track by Sloan from one of their early records One Chord to Another. Any questions?
