The Bishop's Iron Drum

Short musings on music

Agitation Free - Live

Krautrock of the highest order.

Inspired by this post over on deadtour, thought I’d pull out my Dead vinyl for a quick census.

Despite what you might think two drummers always a pretty good indicator of awesome.

Black Eyes @ Rutgers Fest 4/12/03 (by Aaron Leitko)

mimaroglu music closeout sale pick-ups.

Flaherty-Corsano-Yeh - Snow Blind Avalanche (punk-noise-jazz, you know these guys)

Die Enttäuschung - s/t (Axel Dorner and others ‘free bop’ originals)

Themselves - s/t (Anticon core group with Doseone)

The Skygreen Leopards - Gorgeous Johnny (new weird America group, now half of New Bums)

Haven’t been able to get out to the record store lately, so scratched the itch with a few discogs purchases.  On the inside sleeve of the Cecil Taylor (once a library copy) someone has written “Don’t Bother” (clearly someone was not a fan of free playing), but it is pretty amazing playing especially on the second side (I can’t think of anyone who plays piano like this even to this day).
Yo La Tengo - And then nothing turned itself inside-out
Godspeed you! black emperor - Lift your skinny fists….
Cecil Taylor - Cecil Taylor Unit
Jayhawks - Hollywood Town Hall
Mark Mulcahy - Dear Mark J. Mulcahy I love you (this one is also very recommended for fans of slightly odd songwriters like Kozelek, McCombs, Callahan, Richman, etc.)

Happy birthday to Ornette Coleman! One of my all time faves. I’ll be spinning these today.
