You guys obviously put the Bell Witch record all the way at the bottom so nobody would miss it, right? Honestly, the problem I have with these guys is that I don't have a solid way to listen to their music. The bass is so huge that it overwhelms most of my speakers at one point or another.

That is Trumpeter Landfrey->Translucent Carriages. Balaklava as a whole is a spectacular record and better than many of the free-jazz releases that ESP put out. The Cromagnon record is also very much worth the listen, as it plays back as one of the first noise records, as we currently view the term. The dissonant work and collage-y nature would have fit right in with Prurient, Merzbow or early Boredoms. The Fugs, The Godz and The Holy Modal Rounders were all worth checking out as well.

How about Pearls Before Swine? Is nobody interested in the NMH of the 60s? Trumpeter Lampfrey is one of those songs everyone should hear.

I saw Cedric Bixler-Zavala do a monologue at UCB LA about 5 years ago. He told a story about how he rode the Greyhoud to San Francisco, all the way scoring random drugs and drinks from strangers. When he got off he met a friendly seeming homeless guy. That night, they were sleeping in an alley when some dude walked down it with a running chain saw. They both ran away, then the homeless guy robbed Cedric for everything he had, including his jacket.

Even better to see that the top 5 Fall albums are in place, in the correct order.

Thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!!!! I found Scum early in my metal development because Justin Broadrick played on it, and through that record I discovered Carcass and Cathedral. For some godawful reason I never explored beyond Scum until two years ago when I checked out Utilitarian. It was so different and so excellent that I was almost petrified of where to go next. This is great.

Louder than Bombs is mostly non-album shit. Ramones Mania is just an incredible compilation of mostly album cuts.

Before even reading this list (which, since it's studio releases, should go Rocket to Russia>Ramones>Leave Home>Road to Ruin>Everything else) I was going to post exactly this. It's Alive is as close to perfection as any record can get, and hearing the live record that was recorded a few dates after this that they released in the 2000s just hammers it home. It sounds EXACTLY like It's Alive, and just proves they were a machine around that time.

I didn't make it to bed until well after midnight last night because I couldn't stop listening. The first half of the album is killer, but the second half is all groove and move.

A video of Ariel Pink staring at himself in the mirror for 10 minutes at number 1? It's good, but it's no Sun Kil Moon, am I right?

Just finished it. The second half definitely gets into a darker, funkier groove for a bit, and then the ending three tracks are just a kick. The Door is gonna be a dorm room jam in years to come.

Prayer is just a soup of 70s soul funk jamming.

I love how instruments keep jumping out of the mix. I'm to Back to the Future Part 1 and I'm captivated still.

Oh man... To wake up and find this. What a great Sunday. Joanna Newsom announcing she's working on her new stuff and a new D'angelo song: best week of the year.
