  1. For the love of god and all that is holy, please listen to the 13th Floor Elevators. Also listen to Gonn, the Spencer Davis Group, The Sonics, Cuby and the Blizzards, The Birds, Keith West / The In Crowd, The Pretty Things ... I could seriously go on for days. And listen to new stuff that hearkens back to that stuff (I just named bands that an awesome newish band covered a lot). Go buy ANYTHING labeled "Back From The Grave," "Teenage Shutdown," "Nuggets," etc. Check out this blog: http://rideyourpony-twighlightzone.blogspot.com/ and this one: http://chocoreve.blogspot.com/ Good lu
  2. hey, thanks! I poke my head in from time to time but each time I come back I am reminded of why I don't stick around...

  3. You live in Detroit. You can save yourself. ANYWAY. My band played its first show on Saturday. Video: In case you've forgotten that I'm a girl, or that I play drums, I'm the girl playing drums. If you like, add us on myspace: http://www.myspace.com/thevanpeltslouisville </shameless plug>
  4. The back of my CD has Jack Lawrence. I live in the US. UK people are getting Patrick Keeler. I looked all over for a Patrick CD and could not for the life of me find one. Hence, I think the UK releases have Patrick Keeler on the back and on the CD. Anyway, I opened it and it's good. It didn't really blow me away, but it's good. I need to listen to it some more but I really freakin' love Consoler of the Lonely and really freakin' dislike Rich Kid Blues. edited later to add that the more I listen to it the more I like it. And it makes me really freakin' want to go home and play my d
  5. I'll admit, I was more tempted to open it to see if my CD had Patrick on it or not... but I think it must be Jack Lawrence, as he's on the back and it seems the UK releases have PK. Sooo.... I shall find someone to buy one for me.
  6. I dunno, it's kind of like opening Christmas presents early. I hid it so it can't tempt me. LOL
  7. Apparently the FYE in Louisville has it out for sale. I find this hilarious and will go buy it very soon. I'm not gonna listen until Tuesday though. Nope.
  8. ^ I know, right? I was still 17 (unable to attend shows!) and three days away from graduation. Good lord. So like... today.... I might have gotten an eensy bit excited about the album. I still miss The Greenhornes like crazy, though, don't get me wrong. I'm still very much Greenhornes > Raconteurs. But to be fair, it's not BBS, they've had time to perfect newness, and hopefully it'll have a totally different sound. I'm okay if it blows me away. And if it doesn't, well, just what I expected.
  9. No, I mean, I used to like them, 2 years ago I was spaztastic over them, then I realized that The Greenhornes are probably over around the same time as I realized that they're not the same as they used to be, and I don't like the music anymore and it has all added up to the fact that I just don't care. I do, I guess, but I care because the FINISHED Greenhornes album won't be out for ages now.
  10. I feel a huge, resounding "MEH" coming on. stupid Raconteurs.
  11. yeah, I could care less.

  12. Ironic that she chooses The Stooges to perform yet they still get snubbed.
  13. I used to be like that. I really did. I didn't listen to anything new because I was afraid I'd be subjecting my ears to utter crap, and I liked lots of old stuff and didn't even give anything else a chance. Then I pulled my head out from my own ass and saw the light. I really can't say anything that hasn't already been said -- there are plenty of places to find it and to say that current rock is shit without doing some research is lazy and ignorant. Before I started listening to new stuff, I didn't go to a concert, didn't get excited about an album release, etc. To me, stuff like that
  14. exactly. There's a load of shit out there, but hasn't there always been? I don't see why people are so goddamn lazy that they won't dig to find bands they like that are making music NOW, touring NOW, releasing albums NOW. Classic rock is good and dandy, but where's the excitement for a show? A new album?
  15. Hey, I dig it lots! *sigh* I guess I'll advertise my band... http://www.myspace.com/thevanpeltslouisville yeah. I'm on drums. With the exception of vocals in spots, I think we've got something. Y/N?
  16. All on vinyl: Soledad Brothers - Steal Your Soul and Dare Your Spirit to Move Soledad Brothers Live The Hardest Walk I might be in a phase. edited cuz I'm a tard and can't make image tags properly.
  17. Ignoring all the shit... That's really too bad. I always see that magazine but never pick it up... now I feel bad about it. Alt-country is entirely too underrated and it's sad that one of the publications that help make it known is going away.
  18. I may be in a complete and total phase of obsession, but this is fucking insane:
  19. gonna be a baptist preeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaacchheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr sooooooooooooooooooooooo I don't have to work!
  20. it's a great song, isn't it? It makes me want to stomp my feet and clap and dance. love.
  21. Dark rum and coke with grenadine. Yummmmm.
  22. I would just like to add that this was one of the greatest nights of my life.
  23. The Lions Rampant / Cut in the Hill Gang in Covington tomorrow night. It will be AMAZING. JOHNNY WALKER!!!! Free shirt, free single, free admission... uh, totally worth buying a tank of gas to go. EEEEEEE.
