      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

I know, boring, but here goes.

What have y'all been listening to lately?

Some recent acqusitions:

Buck Sixty Five. Cool, but weird.

Masta Ace: Disposable Arts. If you like the Hip Hop, this is awesome.

Gang Starr: "Moment of Truth" Ibid.

The Blue Van. I don't know the name of the record, but: "meh."

The Zutons: "Who Killed the Zutons?" Stay away. Very catchy and annoying. I can't stop listening to it!!

Wes Montgomery: "So Much Guitar" Most excellent.

Dexter Gordon: "GO!" What can I say about this one?

James Blood Ulmer: "Tales of a Black Soldier" Sweeet.

 

 

Soo....who's got the new tunes they can't stop listening to?? confused.gif

Top 5 singles from this week (none are "new"), not in any particular rank. Complete with notes since I know you all care.

 

1. Panic, by the Smiths. Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ, Hang the DJ! Why is it that the Smiths had 4 or 5 really incredibly good songs amid so very much boring dreck?

 

2. Ghetto Defendant, by the Clash. I think teaming up with Allan Ginsberg was an inspired idea, even though it doesn't really work. It's kind of like there's two songs going on at once. But nevertheless it does rock.

 

3. Always True to You in my Fashion, by Peggy Lee with George Shearing. George Shearing's latin-inflected piano accompaniment makes this the best version of this Cole Porter tune I've heard.

 

4. Goodbye to You, by Scandal. I can't believe I never heard this 80s top-40 song until I was driving back from Eastern OR last Monday. Made me nostalgic for tough girl singers like Debbie Harry and Pat Benatar.

 

5. Smoking Cigarettes and Drinking Coffee Blues, by Lefty Frizzell. I heard Sleepy LaBeef do this song in concert about 10 years ago, and it's always stuck with me, even though I'd never heard Lefty Frizzell's original. Finally got it last week and it's almost as good as my memory of Sleepy doing it live.

A friend of mine just turned me on to Probot, and it's fucking killer. It's getting maximum rotation on my playlist this week (and it kept us wide-awake in the car coming back from Rainier last weekend).

Apparently it's Dave Grohl's homage to the metal bands of his youth. He wrote and played the (killer) tunage and the singers wrote and peformed the lyrics. Each song is an attempt to sound like the singer's original band. It works really well for me.

 

Some of the bands represented are D.R.I., C.O.C, Venom, Celtic Frost, Motorhead, Sepultera, and King Diamond. There are some others, but those are the bands represented on the album that I grew up with.

 

I give it four bloody skulls (out of five). You'd do right by yourself to check it out, if you're at all into hard rock.

School's Out For the Summer, by Alice Cooper

 

Well we got no choice all the girls and boys

Makin' all that noise 'cause they found new toys

Well we can't salute ya can't find a flag if that don't suit ya that's a drag

 

School's out for summer .... school's out forever ... school's been blown to pieces

 

No more pencils no more books no more teacher's dirty looks yeah

Well we got no class and we got no principals and we got no innocence

We can't even think of a word that rhymes

 

School's out for summer ... school's out forever ... my school's been blown to pieces

 

No more pencils no more books no more teacher's dirty looks

Out for summer out till fall we might not come back at all

 

School's out forever ... school's out for summer ... School's out with fever ... school's out completely

Talking Heads, Fear of Music. Wow, it sounds as good as the first time I heard it. Forgot about that incredible guitar work by R. Fripp on the first track.

 

Also, I second Ireneo on Ghetto Defendant and a lot of other less-noticed Clash songs.

 

Also If I were a Carpenter, a Carpenters tribute album. Sonic Youth's version of "Superstar" rocks the hizzouse.

Yellowjackets - mostly the '95 album.

 

Incognito - their older stuff.

 

Coleman Hawkins

 

...incredible guitar work by R. Fripp...
Saw him with King Crimson in '74; a great memory.

I was reading the paper today and was suprised to find that Common's new album is number 2 on Billboard, not bad for someone from the underground scene. It's a good fucking album!

I ripped this album and it keeps jumping out at me from the shuffle mix and smacking me upside the ear.
