    I feel like we should all be jamming out to “Right Now” (and drinking Crystal Pepsi?), because this is the day we’ve all been waiting for. It’s time to stop living in the past and start living in the moment: my annual list of the one-hundred best albums of 2010 is finally ready for you to feast your eyes on it. Look at it. […]

    My co-worker Mark has been on the hunt for this record for some time now, and a few weeks ago he finally found a sealed original copy of the LP. He was kind enough to transfer the record to a digital format for me, so we all have him to thank for tonight’s installment of Treasures From The Collectors’ Slum. Furthermore, I bought […]

    This is it, folks. This is one of the Vertigo swirl records I’ve been looking for since I first laid eyes on it back in the early days of 2008. At the time it was being sold for $250 (and it was about as close to mint condition as you’re going to find when it comes to a German 1970 Vertigo swirl). Since […]

    Review from Prog Archives: “At the beginning of the nineteen-seventies there were a few German bands who made some incredible psychedelic rock. Not very experimental (like the krautrock bands) or particular original, but just great rock music. These were bands like Armaggedon, Gomorrha, Message, Hairy Chapter and Virus. The latter released it’s debut in 1970, which consists of five long tracks. The opener […]

    Image courtesy of Lefse Records In a short blurb for yesterday’s mix tape I made fun of Ian for how horribly he described a band. I need to make a point of saying that Ian has been consistently awesome in recommending me music over the tenure of our friendship. He’s got pretty good taste! One of his most recent successes was turning me onto […]

    Yes, the above image is correct. No need to adjust your monitors. I found a copy of Neu! 75 that was actually released on the orange Capitol label in the US in 1975. Until I found this I had no idea it even existed. I cannot find any references to it on the Internet, so I imagine it was not widely distributed at […]

    It was almost one year ago that I posted the wildly popular Julian Cope book Krautrocksampler on this hallowed institution I call my “blog” (I’m still waiting for the media to latch onto that word). Since then, literally tens of people have come here to read the long out-of-print text, BBS forums run by nerds in dimly lit basements across the world have […]

    It’s Halloween now, and I’m sitting at work eating all the candy that people keep refusing. The clientele here is what we young, hip cats like to refer to as, “old farts.” Z had the brilliant idea last night that I should come to work wearing black clothing and covered in postage stamps, or “blackmail.” After first thinking the idea to be brilliant, I […]
