Thursday, January 12, 2006


Reading something reminded me of this band so I went on a bit of a search.
Difficult to track down many people hosting audio.
Could'nt find "youth of america" the track that we used to listen to
15 years ago.
very influential band.

website with tantalising audio snippets

someone hosting a song at

and 2 tunes on someones webjay page (I'm not too keen on "is this real")

keep on searchin'

update: found more at
and at

Amazon uk have the box set. 1st3 albums. at £18 +free del, it's cheap, but not as cheap as direct from zeno records($17) but that's an international buying thing.
The huge link that buggers up this blog is in the comments at the strange reaction page.

guitar suite

This is a pretty good set of freeware plugins that emulate classic guitar amps and stomp boxes.
I'm particularly keen on the two amps.
A nice sounding fender twin sim,
and a very good sounding marshall head sim which, to my ears at any rate, sounds
indistinguishable from the one I used to use back in the dim and distant way back day.

Some very funny answers made by people taking music exams here

Refrain means don't do it. A refrain in music is the part you'd better not try to sing.

great stuff at RecordBrother

Now and again whilst trawling about you find a bit of a gem. RecordBrother is one such.
Theres a lot of stuff on here, entire albums worth of scratchy vinyl, like cool sounding blacksploitation film soundtracks . It's one of those sites that have evrything in a great big long page, so it's almost impossible to find a particular thing on returning .

Theres a link to some great little video clips of Django Reinhardt in action.
Check it out
