How’s it going?
After last week’s moan, crib, rant, bitch or whatever you would like to call it….this week is mellow yellow, a week’s work (or whatever I choose to call it) left before the O Brien clan head to the sun soaked strands of neighboring County Kerry….positive thinking and visualization! (That’s the key)
Really looking forward to the briste….a lot of ye may think I am a ghost as I am never really around at weekends as Gina works all weekends so I am at home with the smallies, so really great for us all to get away together…so nothing going to increase the blood pressure tonight.
Anyway, enough said, releases this week mainly for the 19th June.
Warner have some nice reissues on Vinyl record of the AIR catalogue….the main one they seem to be pushing is the soundtrack to the Sofia Ford Coppola movie “ the virgin suicides”.
Very underestimated record “the virgin suicides”, it’s a really good listen…..obviously “MOON SAFARI” was huge but the others all interesting in my opinion. (Pocket symphony on a ltd white vinyl)
Warner also has a new release live album from SLASH featuring MYLES KENNEDY and the CONSPIRATOR’S….”live at the Roxy” where they cover not only the new stuff, but also stuff for VELVET REVOVLER and some classics from GUNS N’ ROSES.
Last to mention on Warner is the vinyl record reissue of the BETH HART album “37 days”.
I would have mentioned in the visual newsletter (that’s me acting the goat) how there was a really nice little piece written by RYAN ADAM’S on the back of the new live record where he says ( amongst a few other things) that no guests are allowed back stage before or after a solo show as he seems to try and totally detach himself from the situation of the gig….he wants to be chilled as if he was in his living room (or front room as we would say in Cork Ryan boooyyy)…..can understand that……after the show is probably cause he is just a bit odd….worth reading what he wrote…far more eloquent than what’s above….that was a rough synopsis.
Universal have the new record by JAMES TAYLOR “before this world”, his first body of work since 2002’s “October road” …it comes on CD and LP.
Local artist Eamon O Dwyer’s new album “that wrinkled shirt” is in store at the moment and has a lovely James Taylor flavour to it….LP due in soon.
Some vinyl record reissues also from Universal including RUSH and ELLIE GOULDING…first time for Ellie on Vinyl actually I would think.
MUSIC ON VINYL has a few nice ones coming up soon so they are next….
The brilliant yep brilliant TRICKY record “ maxinquaye” gets a reissue towards the end of JUNE, start of JULY….the first 1000 pressed are red vinyl ( I think red anyway they are some colour other than black….all vinyl records are transparent but they use carbon black to strengthen them….hence they are black but Vinyl is transparent……useless fact for ye all….don’t say I never told ye nothing…)
MOV also has a re issue of Mr. BOB DYLAN’s spiritual, holy, gospel album “ slow train coming” for the end of the month and lastly worth a mention from MUSIC ON VINYL is a SIMON & GARFUNKEL 6 LP complete collection set….120 bucks…..i am not joking here but my pals in the sky….you probably know the ones I am on about, I may have mentioned them before…..you know the ones….they want to sell you everything from baby monitors to lipstick for dogs……well I kid you not…. 133 sterling… or about 190 euro.
PIAS has a few nice reissues out for June 19th….especially we like the sound of THE DELGADOS “ great eastern” on vinyl record and also reissues from BLACK MOUNTAIN and CARNIFEX.
New from PIAS for the 26th June are records by CAYUCAS and also GILL LANDRY from OLD CROW MEDICINE SHOW.
Sony has new albums for the 12th June from GIORGIO MORODER and EVERYTHING EVERYTHING as well as a metal record from DEW SCENTED.
CARGO for the 10th of July has the third SLEAFORD MODS record entitled “ key markets” , limited green monster coloured vinyl on the first run…….Mr. Williamson will not be mincing his words I would imagine.
On the local scene, people its time to get the finger out, JOHN BLEK AND THE RATS have just 12 days left to raise the cash to get their new album made….still just 47% of the bobs needed in….so BUY A COPY of the new album here and a) you will have years of listening pleasure b) you will be doing something worthwhile in your day/week/month c) you will support local artists d) you won’t have to listen to me if you do it…..
Lads and ladies, as for this thing
the standard of piss taking was downright appalling…..
I’d say this was about the best we got…
Well you’re no Scorsese that’s for sure 🙂
Anyway, Sin e for this week….
Thanks for listening,
