It List: Thursday


Mark Sultan /Bad Sports/The Lash Outs (Rubber Gloves): Mark Sultan's 2007 release (and the first under this alias) "The Sultanic Verses" was pretty well received, even by people who don't like garage rock. It's understandable, as there is something more authentic than cartoonish about his music when compared to others in what some refer to as the "Stillborn Genre." He really started to get attention with King Khan & BBQ Show after operating under various pseudonyms. I would go into all of the other names he's played under, but I just don't have the time, even if I had all day.

Lost Generation (Fallout Lounge)

Lymbyc System/Florene/Top Secret...Shhh (Lola's):Lymbyc System partly hails from Austin, which for better or worse has a long history of tepid, borderline experimental groups that meander more than they ever fully arrive at a satisfied sonic conclusion. Not always a problem or even the point but man, Austin has always had a lot of it. Depending on who you are, this is a good show to either watch the band and concentrate sternly, or converse really loudly for four hours. Your call.

80's Night with DJ G (Hailey's): I'm just going to start using this space to talk about records I bought since everyone complains that we always list 80's Night. I was at this flea market recently and found a little stack of Giorgio Moroder (including the Oakey collab) shit, played out I know, but at two dollars apiece it was totally worth it. Also, a Divine 12-inch for the same price. Finally, the MVD reissue of the Target Video Flipper tape rules. Yes, I know how impressed you are, you don't have to tell me. If DJ G wants to start sending us a little list every week, we'd love to post it and I'll shut up.

Legends can never be played out.

Unless you're house dj's from Paris.

The soundtrack to "Midnight Express" blew my mind as a kid. I still think it's good, but now it reminds me of Art Bell.

i saw radiohead sunday night from the pit, i may not need to ever see another rock show. this was the first time i had been to starplex in a decade, i paid alot of money , and it was worth it. my punk elitism was put in check, and i asked myself have i been full of shit all these years. i think mostly no, but yes to some degree, yet i will not apologize. i still love bad brains, and always will.

actually, i can say that radiohead and bad brains are in my top 3 concerts of all time, as far as a concert experience being transcendent, and the amount of shows ive seen is probably in the thousands. number 3 might be the ed hall reunion shows in austin in 20003.

the "last ed hall show ever" was cool too, but it was more sad than the reunion shows.
