Peter Brötzmann, Mahmoud Gania & Hamid Drake - The WELS Concert


This is music for thinking, i say. How is that, you ask? There is just primitive sounds here. Well, just because. Just play it loud, spend an hour in the universe and after that, your thinking will be rich and pure :)

Eugene Chadbourne - Young and Innocent Days


Well, it's not easy to say something for the album like this. Maybe for somebody it sounds like a fooling around. But not for me :) First, this is one of most commercial Chadbourne records, he is mostly in free - country - jazz style. Second, this is a cover album, songs from '60. Psychedelic years, and that is totally respected here, in sound. Third, choice of the songs is terrific, man who understand this mix of every day problems, timeless troubles of specific era, nostalgia, hopes, human falls and small inner explosions, is emotionaly on high level, i think. And he understand, because of his interpretation, this songs had same emotional impact on me like originals, well, maybe even stronger.
So, Eugene, my Man   :)

Gary Clail On-U Sound System - Emotional Hooligan


Everything works so nice on this superb album, it's a fine example of British modern music, which is not surprising, given the people who made ​​it, the very top of British underground scene, although this particular LP bring more commercial sound, much more than their previous releases. So, just move your hips easily, in this amalgam of dancefloor, reggae and disco sounds. Or just think straight with world's conscience lyrics, whatever you prefer :)
Later, I heard rumors that Clail too absorbed the role of superstar, which led to the termination of cooperation with this team. However, we are all people, and, ultimately, their cooperation was short but fruitful ...

David Thomas & The Pedestrians - Variations on a Theme


David's albums might sound crazy, but what is that mean? That there is no beauty? On the contrary. Like a musician, he is big, just take a look at his pictures :P Ok, i'm kidding, but truth is, if you spend some time in his world, you may find that you enjoy it. Or not, it's up to you :)

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Extra Width


Are you interested in real, basic rock? Maybe is this album hard to swallow for 21st century music consumers, it have very murky and primitive production, and "production" is very dangerous mantra today, like special effects in movies. This two things should be in service of art, not opposite. At least, they should complement each other. 
For me this LP is roots, something i will never stop listening to. It's dirty and wild rock record at its very best, and for me, that's enough. Hallelujah  :)

Klaus Schulze - Dune


Inspiration 1 : My friend T. said that we can watch David Lynch movie "Dune" these days. I'm still waiting :)
Inspiration 2 : These days I am busy with learning and when my concentration had began to decreases, I searched for some ambiental sounds to keep my focus. The choice was "Dune" and it was wrong choice :) I was completely drawn into music and i enjoyed one hour, instead of learning :)
So if you have a job to do, do it. But, after the work is done, one possibility is "Dune" :)

Carla Bozulich - Red Headed Stranger


Once, when Willie Nelson recorded his legendary album " Red Headed Stranger" it was sold in millions. Why, God knows. This is 100% uncommercial record, ambiental, dry in sound and demands attention while listening. Only logical thing here is to 100% alternative persona, both in music and in life, like Carla Bozulich, find herself here. She is experimental author and this is her only pure country record and she do it excellent, absolutely faithful to the original, emphasizing only ambiental line and leaving to us pure enjoyment in this deeply emotional songs.
Listen after midnight  :)

23 Skidoo - Seven Songs


Very interesting album that manages to find right balance between alternative dance and ambient music. Considering that both of the above musical genres have roots in nature, as for me, we can call this, jungle music with more rights and depth, than the "Jungle" music from London deserves :)

The Angels of Light - New Mother



When Michael Gira disbanded "Swans", well, i wasn't so concerned, he is such a strong persona, there is no way that he can't find his way...and, ofcourse, he continued  to record with his new founded group " The Angels of Light", giving us a well-known and, at the same time, new psychedelic vision. And, if you have strenght and patience to explore this (just on the surface) gentler side of Gira, enjoyment is assured :)

Tom Waits - Swordfishtrombones


I didn't listen this LP maybe few years, it just existed in my memory like a great influence, with it's own life in my head. Suddenly, it came back like long lost friend. And somehow, that long lost friend wasn't shadow anymore, he is brand new friend, full of new stories and intimate sounds, willing to share it with you. Maybe it's the best kind of friendship, made from the past, rarely consumed, but always fresh and enjoyable...
