  1. All of their albums are really top notch, you really can't go wrong with anything you start with. Their newest album Nonagon Infinity is one continuous looping album; every song plays directly into the next one and the final song loops perfectly back into the first song. That's a great one to check out. My favorite album though is I'm In Your Mind Fuzz, all of the tracks are excellent and you will not be disappointed! One thing that's great about their discography is that every album is as good as the others. They've released 8 albums in the past 4 years and their music hasn't faltered one bit. I'll attach a few YT videos for you to check out but really just pick an album, sit back, and enjoy the experience!
  2. I would pay some quality money to see that! The show was KILLER, they played a solid hour and a half show and did a lot from Nonagon Infinity. They sounded excellent and I enjoyed the hell out of it. Got only one good photo with a few vidoes but I highly recommend seeing these guys live!
  3. King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard is at the Rock Hall tonight, I'll be there with a couple friends to watch the show. There's less than 100 in attendance so it'll be a great intimate show!
  4. Woah that's one freaking rare video!! I've never seen that before, amazing This reminded me of something I've been looking for for a long time, there's this SUPER low quality video of The River from Quebec 2001 on YouTube and I cannot find any other footage of higher quality of any other parts of the show. Google searches yield no results. This version of the song is KILLER and I would love a full high quality version, anybody out there have any info?
  5. I'm going to see Yonatan Gat this Friday night at the Happy Dog in Lakewood. Should be interesting, check out the dude's live shows, worth seeing him live. I'm also finally seeing the Eagles of Death Metal on Saturday, May 28 in Columbus. I missed them last time around when they played in East Cleveland at the grog shop in September, so I'm glad I can catch them this time around. I'm going with my girlfriend and it'll be a fun drive down there to watch the band and explore the city a little bit
  6. yeah no kidding! I was surprised nobody else mentioned it before I did, but I'm glad that I did!
  7. I was going to make a new post on here and noticed I totally neglected to ever reply to you! I feel guilty now, my apologies Strider! They're skipping Cleveland on this tour unfortunately. They're closing the tour at the Greek Theatre though, that should be an awesome show. I'm going to see a local Pink Floyd tribute band I know personally tonight called Wish You Were Here. It's their 20th anniversary tour so I'm gonna get a treat tonight!
  8. Hiya Terry! That was me over on YouTube that sent you the link to the booklet (TheRover1977). Small world, huh?
  9. Winston's remaster called "How the West Was Redone" is exactly the same material as HTWWW, just "remixed." He took the separate tracks from the 5.1 surround sound DVD and just did a little remixing, turning down the master volume a few decibels to get rid of the terrible "brickwalling" that's going on in the official HTWWW CD. If you're looking for more material, How the West Was Redone is the exact same as HTWWW. There's a transfer of the master tape from Long Beach circulating, definitely recommend that, it's the best sounding audience version IMO.
  10. I always thought that this live version was spectacular, this has one hell of a blast off solo IMO. It's got a nice bit of Carouselambra in there, too.
  11. He also sent one of his acoustic guitars to the US for some repair jobs on it. I saw a bit of hope in that, too. Maybe, just maybe, he's getting his guitars up in order and some new straps ready for playing again.....
  12. Tame Impala back on June 4th. I need to see another concert before summer's over...
  13. For sure! I've got that release as well as the DVD of their show from the Palladium in Koln. Both killer live albums. If you're into TCV then there's a good chance you'll like some of the newer stuff from Queens, specifically ...Like Clockwork, as Josh Homme is in both groups. Grohl also plays drums on Clockwork.
  14. delete post, double post (oops)
  15. Awesome! Blues Pills really kicks some ass, she's really got some pipes! I hope they get over here soon, I believe they are currently touring the UK. Queens has been out of print for 10 years, but If you're looking for physical copies of the CDs, amazon should have both. If not, YouTube is always a great start to feel things out. Queens gets pretty dark if you've never listened to them before, and the Raconteurs gets Jack White heavy! Hope you enjoy those as well!
  16. Correct! Tame Impala is Kevin Parker's solo project, as he plays every instrument on all of the three albums. Kevin does have a live band that tours with him, and I was referring to his live band as doing a great job interpreting Kevin's studio work into a dynamic live performance. I shoulda clarified a bit, but thanks for reminding me about that!
  17. Oh man, you're going to love them! There's really nothing like these guys out there and it's truly a spectacle watching them live (of which I had the honor to experience on June 4th!) Let me know whatcha think of their studio stuff!!
  18. Dave let a fan up on stage a few days ago to play drums along with the band to the song "Big Me"!!! A guy in front row was holding a sign up saying that it was his birthday and he wants to play drums for his birthday, so Dave Grohl invites the dude up to play, not too bad either!! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/07/13/dave-grohl-fan-drums_n_7787256.html "If you suck on the drums, I'm gonna personally tar and feather your ass backstage"
  19. Geekfreak, I didn't know you were a Blues Pills fan!!
  20. Good thread! I'm gonna exclude Zeppelin and have my top 5 favorites (in no particular order): 1. Tame Impala - Live Versions. The songs chosen for the Record Store Day vinyl release were picked because of their differences with their counterpart studio version. This shows how the band can be as spectacular live as they are in the studio. The songs differ from the studio versions, but in the best way possible. The album includes some great flexibility from the band, and even some improvs in-between. Never tire of this masterpiece. 2. Queens of the Stone Age - Over the Years and Through the Woods. The only official live album by QotSA. They just finished their new lineup after the release of 2005's Lullabies to Paralyze, and this new lineup has a very eerie vibe. Released on both a CD and DVD, the live album really shows me how tight this lineup of the band was 10 years ago. Josh Homme sounds and plays stellar. The concert released is warts and all, although there weren't many warts during the shows. Lots of great songs and an amazing setlist. Definitely check out. 3. Pink Floyd - PULSE. One of the greatest live DVDs of all time! David, Rick, and Nick really shine on this release. First set is Division Bell and Momentary Lapse of Reason material, while disc 2 is Dark Side & and ton of cool encores. Although Roger isn't there, they more than make up for his absence. Really awesome versions of "Run Like Hell," High Hopes," "Shine On," and a lot more. The visuals for the Division Bell tour were insane. Earls Court is decked out with lights and visuals and props that make watching it really an experience. 4. The Raconteurs - Live at Montreux. Really awesome band, and a really awesome live album. Killer rendition of "Blue Veins," and "Level." The band sounds really great and the atmosphere is awesome. I don't have much to say for this one but check it out!! 5. Blues Pills - Blues Pills Live. A not-so well known band from Sweden, they're very San Francisco psychedelic rock with a girl on lead vocals. She's got PIPES and this live album totally shows it. They've only got one studio album that came out last July, but this live album takes up a solid hour. Really underrated and they need to be recognized more! Absolutely killer album and I highly recommend this and their studio album! It really kills me that some of my favorite bands don't have official live albums out, so I'm going to give a shoutout to my favorite bands that don't have a live album in their catalog. Also throwing in some honorable mentions and ideas for live albums from bands: Bands without live albums: 1. Reignwolf 2. Them Crooked Vultures 3. The Tea Party (from the early 90's) 4. The Beatles (from 1966) Honorable Mentions: 5. Pink Floyd - BBC Rock Hour 1970 & BBC Sessions 1974 6. Ted Nugent - Double Live Gonzo 7. The Who - Live songs off of the Deluxe Edition of Who's Next 8. David Gilmour - Live in Gdánsk 9. The Who - Live at Leeds
  21. Interesting way of thinking about it! If I were to take that route, I would most likely pick (in no particular order) 1.) 4/28/1977, that one is a personal favorite and the 1977 show I most often go back to 2.) Offenburg 1973, I've become attached at the hip to that show, never gets old 3.) Blueberry Hill, probably the show I go back and listen to the most, there's a reason it's such a good show! 4.) Japan 9/29/1971, band is on fire and the setlist is spectacular Most likely I would pick one of those four, which of those four I would pick depends on my mood NOW, if I were to use the Tropical Island Challenge and allow myself one show per year to listen to into the Twilight Zone, I would pick: 1968-1969: it's a tie between 4/27 or 8/31. I think 8/31 wins, though 1970: Blueberry Hill 9/07 or Montreux 3/07 - I could live without Royal Albert Hall 1971: Japan 9/29, Leicester 11/25, or BBC 4/01 - love Japan, but Leicester kicks ass and the BBC show is awesome counting the quality of the show 1972: 6/25 takes the cake for me, hands down. Uniondale 6/15 is good, too 1973: Offenburg 3/24 really sticks out for me, not too many other 1973 shows stay in constant rotation for me 1975: I really dig MSG 2/12 or Inglewood 3/24 - I could do Earl's Court 5/25 as well 1977: Cleveland 4/28 or any of the LA shows would make me a happy man! I also like Forth Worth 5/22 1979: Copenhagen 7/24 all the way! 1980: Either Frankfurt 6/30 or Berlin 7/07 Interested to hear what other people would choose if they had to do it under the Tropic Island Challenge
  22. That'd be nice if they came to Cleveland... Can't wait for the remastered Edges of Twilight!!
  23. HIGHLY recommend Tame Impala. They're an Australian band whose third album is coming out this July. They're like Sgt. Peppers' and White Album with some psychedelic synths mixed in. It sounds like a psychedelic rock album straight outta 1968. Their singer sounds just like John Lennon, too, it's pretty shocking! I just saw them on June 4th and they're absolutely unbelievable live. Their stuff is so catchy and atmospheric. One of my favorite bands, definitely check them out. Prepare for too many videos linked below ^very Beatle-esque! ^ one of their new ones
