I’ve had a recent fixation on a cover of The Cramps, Human Fly by Blessure Grave. Tonight as I sat listening I was brought back to a large string of reply all’s between co-workers a couple years back about the best covers recorded and I thought it would be an interesting topic to bring to the Lodge. So often we are subject to sub par renditions of mediocre originals yet there have been gems. So to my bunk mates in this dark lodge I say post.
A recent interview from the Quietus with the god of the growl.
Lefroy Wedding. Duncan BC, 2010. Posse Activity.
I’ve spent the last few nights locked away in my apartment drinking red and listening to records. A dash of recluse, a hint of alcoholic and a pinch of musical appreciation. Deja Vu keeps finding it’s way back on rotation. What an album! Really runs you through the gauntlet of emotion in one full play. Of all the songs I constantly drop the needle back on Our House. What a pretty picture Nash paints regarding his relationship with Joni Mitchell. I wish this upon all my brothers one day… Until then…
Careful tomorrow kids! I heard there’s a killer on the loose!
Jack The Knife!
A little while back I posted up THIS VID right here and on a recent trip down south in the PNW for some waves, we found ourselves with a bottle of red and no bottle opener. Well shit brother, I knew what to do. Breath was held as I took my boot and beat the cork right outta there. And like the questionable gent in the video demonstration, this bottle went straight to the lips without a glass. Bottoms up.
Enjoy your weekend.
While I was posting some killer African vibes to kick off your weekend last Friday i was also filling a back pack with socks and undies to hit the road from Vancouver to Portland to catch a reunion show I, and i’m sure a lot of you, have been hoping to see for years. I left my camera in the bag all weekend but luckily someone caught the action in the crowd. I felt pretty lucky to witness this lineup grace the stage. SLEEP!
As excited as I was for Sleep, it was also the chance to see Oregon’s own YOB that inspired the southern pilgrimage. Although I had listened to these guys before, the live show simply blew any expectation out of the water! So much so I marched my ass straight to the merch table and left with a tee and their new LP The Great Cessation. It was a pleasure to see that the members of the band had raced to the merch table almost as fast I had to man the sales themselves. Give the volume a turn to the right and give these guys a listen
