What the hell? Too mainstream for G.O.M.E.? Fuck you, pal! This is, afterall, my blog, and I happen to love ALICE IN CHAINS. This is one of the better soundboards circulating. In fact, my sole criticism is in regards to the setlist: Where's my favorite AIC song, "Rain When I Die"? A great rendition of "Bleed the Freak" almost covers for the slight, though, and this is a thoroughly kickass set from a fantastic band at their peak. This was recorded live in Glasgow, March 2, 1993.

1. Dam That River
2. We Die Young
3. Them Bones

In case you haven't noticed by now, we here at G.O.M.E. tend to worship at the altar of Chris Goss. I track down every record he's affiliated with, from the MASTERS OF REALITY stuff to the more electro UNKLE. GOON MOON is the bizarre soundclash between Goss and Jeordie White (aka Twiggy Ramirez), and Licker's Last Leg is their second album. It's also a front-runner for G.O.M.E. Album of the Year accolades. Is it desert rock? Well, in a sense, yes. Without Chris Goss, there would be no "desert rock" to speak of. However, the experimentation, keyboard orchestration, and use of effects makes this GOON MOON offering a bit more EARTHLINGS? than MASTERS OF REALITY. Rest assured, though, Gomies. There's a lot more to this record than simple blips and bleeps. "An Autumn That Came Too Soon", despite the electronics, is a page directly torn from the Goss/Homme handbook, and if "Pin Eyed Boy" doesn't remind you why you love MASTERS OF REALITY so much, then you clearly have some homework to do. My personal favorite? Ironically it's an earnest cover of the BEE GEES' "Every Christian Lion Hearted Man Will Show You".

1. Apple Pie
2. My Machine
3. An Autumn That Came Too Soon
4. Feel Like This
5. Pin Eyed Boy
6. Hardcore Q3
7. Tip Toe
8. Every Christian Lion Hearted Man Will Show You
9. Lay Down
10. Balloon
11. The Golden Ball
12. Built in a Bottle



Just spreading a little holiday warm & fuzzies G.O.M.E. style. This tape's for everyone, but I can see the guys over at The Sludge Swamp really digging it.

If you dug the SNAKE NATION record, or you're just an old school CORROSION fan, here's a bit of a gem. This is also a good history lesson for younger fans of the Keenan-era C.O.C. I'll never quite understand the logic behind this release (despite living next to Pepper's former roommate for a year), but I'll tell you what I do know: Original hardcore/thrash/crossover/whatever-the-fuck growler Eric Eycke left the band after their debut, Eye for an Eye, so original members Mike Dean, Woody Weatherman and Reed Mullin re-recorded three songs off that record with Dean on vocals, added three more, and released it as this EP. I was but a wee lad when I discovered C.O.C., and needless to say there was no internet, and therefor no information at my disposal. I looked at the cover of this EP and assumed A) Mike Dean must've died, and B) This is a live EP released in tribute. I was obviously wrong on both counts. Still, it's worth a listen. If nothing else, it features the only good song about liking your rock & roll loud. [This EP was later appended to the re-release of Eye for an Eye. I have the originals. Do you? HAHA!]

1. Eye for an Eye
2. Center of the World
3. Citizen
4. Not for Me
5. What?!?
6. Negative Outlook



This is one our main man Rinjo was hunting for awhile back, and I was finally able to track down a decent copy. SNAKE NATION was the project of two original members of C.O.C., Mike Dean and Woody Weatherman, along with Brian Walsby. Because of this, it obviously has quite a bit in common with CORROSION's early-to-mid-'80s output. Let it be said that even in C.O.C.'s hardcore days, they stood out from the pack because of a distinct SABBATH influence, and SNAKE NATION is certainly not immune to those tendencies. In fact, the majority of the songwriting here is far more daring than the early C.O.C. records, resulting in longer songs and more tempo changes. "I'll Never Shake You" is a good example of this, while "Babylon" sounds like...well...a punk band that digs SABBATH. The ultimate lowlight, though, has to be Dean's rapping on "This Nation", which ruins an otherwise excellent heavy-but-funky riff & groove.

1. I'll Never Shake You
2. History
3. Green God
4. Babylon
5. Behind the Flag
6. Waltz of the Toad
7. Process of the Spiral
8. This Nation
9. I've Seen the Man
10. My Head Feels Like Several
11. Monstrosity



LID was the legendary Eric Wagner's first post-TROUBLE project, also featuring ANATHEMA guitarist Danny Cavanagh. Truth be told, I've often tried to appreciate this album, and it never stays in heavy rotation. There's definitely some great stuff here. My primary beef is that the record too often veers toward mainstream metal (which, come to think of it, is a complaint I've applied to TROUBLE more than a time or two). The fantastic production might actually hinder the quality of the record, in that it just screams "ARENA METAL" in all its shiny pristine brilliance. If you're too young to have thrown up in your mouth upon hearing TSOL's Strange Love for the first time, then simply rewind to 1997, and imagine what PEARL JAM fans were listening to when they really wanted to "kick some ass". Still, that's not to say there isn't a lot to like here. "Rx" is among Wagner's absolute finest work, and while I'll always be a little creeped-out by his obsession with THE MONKEES, Wagner's Bowie-esque take on "Randy Scouse Git" actually works. Of course, speaking of Wagner's obsessions, THE BEATLES must be mentioned. That influence is prevalent throughout the album (probably more so than on any TROUBLE album, thanks to Cavanagh), but culminates in a cover of "Don't Let Me Down".

1. Lid
2. Mary Agnes
3. The Dream Is Over
4. In the Mushroom
5. Window Pain
6. Rx
7. You Are Here
8. Randy Scouse Git
9. Alive
10. For All My Life
11. Don't Let Me Down

Elevated Radio Cocaine Edition? I dunno,'s pretty high-energy. Check it out for a track from the brand new CLUTCH live release, as well as information about where to order your own copy. I did some digging, played some obscurities, talked too fuckin' much, insufflated my body weight, and drank a shitload of bourbon.

Stream or download. You know the drill.

ELEVATED RADIO #007 [corrected]

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Better late than never, right? Gomies (© Mighty Matias), your humble host has found himself in ill health over the past couple weeks. I apologize not only for the tardiness of the show, but for the questionable quality of this one. For almost two weeks, I medicated my broken ribs with the finest greens and Knob Creek (100 proof) bourbon. I avoided painkillers to the absolute best of my ability. Ultimately, I had to throw some Vicodin in the mix in order to mend my tattered bones. Of course, I also kept the greens at hand and upgraded my bourbon to Booker's (124 proof). Consider ER#007 a PSA telling you why you should never do that.

Expect some more records this week. Matias and I have both been slacking lately.

I'm not sure this one is quite as smooth as the last one, but it's all I can do to hold a fuckin' cigarette right now. The songs deviate a bit from the Elevated norm, as I rediscovered some great records during my holiday travels, and I'm just drunk enough to be a little more chit-chatty than usual. Other than that, you know what to expect. Stream or download at the link below.

MELVANA (1992)

It's been a while since a Melvins post, so, here is H2F for you guys, enjoy it.

Buzz Osbourne: Guitar & Vocals
Chris Novoselic: Bass
David Grohl: Drums
Recorded on 1.15.92 a Wednesday at the Crocodile Cafe in Seattle, WA. Both these songs are by Flipper. A one-time live collaboration between Buzz and the two members of Nirvana. Nobody seems to know if this was a melvins show that the members of nirvana showed up for and played a couple covers pre or post melvins set and if there were any other songs played either by these three or other groups. According to a 1995 interview with Dave, they played four full songs.

1. Sacrifice
2. Way of the World

Make no mistake about it, I owe you guys an apology. I guaranteed a weekly show and I failed to deliver. That said, I set out to rock this motherfucker harder than all four of the previous shows put together! Hopefully you guys dig it. Thank Tyler for the killer intro.

Yet another Man's Ruin casualty, resurrected by G.O.M.E. I should've posted this months ago, but never got around to it. In some circles, Porn American Style is considered a genre classic. I probably wouldn't go that far, but it's certainly a great record. The opening track, "Comin' Home", is so hypnotic that you hardly realize it's nearly 17 minutes long. Highly recommended to fans of the the MELVINS' sludgy post-grunge, as well as anyone that loves heavy psychedelic riff-fests.

1. Comin' Home (Smokin' Pot on a Sunday Afternoon While UFOs Drone Overhead)
2. Dancing Black Ladies
3. Porch Song
4. Fat Trout
5. Teabaggin'
6. Ballad of the Bulldyke
7. Pyleven
8. Ode to Theodore's
9. Highlife
10. Ballad of the Bulldyke (Jam Jar Superstar Mix)
11. Double Don
12. End

I belive that Cheeto posted this one on his great blog, but since is link doesn't work anymore I post it here..

melding ‘70s sludge, ‘80s thrash, and ‘90s punk into a heavy rock cornucopia, here is YLD. The bass is heavy, the drums are pounding, and the singing is ferocious on “Year Long Disaster,” but a glance at the power trio’s lineup reveals why the finished product came out so solid. The band is fronted by Daniel Davies, son of founding The Kinks member Dave Davies; bass player Rich Mullins, who toured with popular hard rock band Karma To Burn; and drummer Brad Hargreaves, who hails from Third Eye Blind. What matters is the Sabbath-like crunch of “Cold Killer,” the stoner rock shuffle of “Destination,” and the Southern-fueled ZZ Top swagger of “The Fool And You.” And just when you think they can’t slow it down and flesh out a song, Year Long Disaster closes their album with the eight-minute opus “Swan On Black Lake,” which would be worthy of a spot on any Zeppelin album.

1. Per Qualche Dollaro In Piu
2. Leda Atomica
3. Cold Killer
4. Destination
5. The Fool And You
6. Sapphire
7. It Ain't Luck
8. Let Me Down
9. Galea Aponeurotica
10. Swan On Black Lake
11. Bonus Track

Just wanted to let you all know that there will be no Elevated Radio podcast today. I'll try to finish it for tomorrow, but it might actually be Wednesday before the show is posted. There will definitely be a show this week, though.

Sorry for the delay.

Not really standard G.O.M.E. fare, SST's Program Annihilator compilation is not only a schizophrenically enjoyable listen, but an important historic artifact. I bought this cassette back in '86, and I still have it to this day. Since it took me 21 years to score a copy on CD, I thought I'd pass it on to the Faithful and see what you all think. In 1986, the legendary SST label was eschewing it's punk and art rock, for which it was most famous, in favor of a decidedly metallic direction. Not coincidentally, that was also the direction the label's flagship band, BLACK FLAG, was pursuing at the time. Much like today, the underground fans of the '80s were an extremely fickle bunch, and by most accounts this stylistic 180 was a dismal failure. Personally, I enjoyed the majority of the music here in 1986, and I enjoy it just as much today. I'm assuming most of you are familiar with BLACK FLAG and SAINT VITUS, the two bands featured most heavily on this compilation. The obscure gem, though, might come in the form of OVERKILL (the LA biker punks, not the terrible NY speed metal band). OVERKILL was Merill Ward's (Greg Ginn's buddy) vehicle for creating big dumb MOTORHEAD-MEETS-BLACK FLAG rock & roll. SWA is another Ward band, and while they were more prolific (though I hesitate to say "successful"), Ward is at his absolute best on the OVERKILL songs featured here (all three tracks pulled from OVERKILL's sole SST release, Triumph of the Will). SWA was the more experimental of the two, though Merill Ward's lyrics are equally stupid with both bands, and that's part of their appeal. D.C.3 is equally interesting. To the uninitiated, "D.C." are the initials of BLACK FLAG's Dez Cadena, and D.C.3 was his less-hardcore side project. The SST roster at this time was particularly incestuous, with original BLACK FLAG bassist Chuck Dukowski playing in both SWA and WURM.

The original SST cassette was over 80 minutes long, so in order to format the compilation for CD, two songs were cut. While maintaining five BLACK FLAG tracks and four SAINT VITUS tracks, the CD version of the release omits OVERKILL's kickass rager "Head On", and D.C.3's interesting psychedelic rocker "We Feel the Sky". Since G.O.M.E. does indeed care about your future (assuming you have one), I'm including both omitted songs.

Overkill - Head On

D.C.3 - We Feel the Sky

1. Saint Vitus - War Is Our Destiny
2. Saint Vitus - White Stallions
3. Saint Vitus - Darkness
4. Saint Vitus - White Magic/Black Magic
5. Black Flag - Annihilate This Week
6. Black Flag - Society's Tease
7. Black Flag - You're Not Evil
8. Black Flag - Beat My Head Against the Wall
9. Black Flag - Thirsty and Miserable
10. Overkill - Victimized
11. Overkill - Ladies in Leather
12. D.C.3 - The Locust
13. D.C.3 - The Maniac
14. SWA - Catacombs
15. SWA - Sex Doctor
16. SWA - Sine Cosine X
17. Wurm - Feast
18. Wurm - Bad Habits

Ron's been asking for this brief slice of desert history, and I'm finally getting around to re-posting it. Sorry for the delay.



Yeahh, an oldie baby, this is band that inspired many of the space rock fellows out there, great desert background, psych from toe to top. Indeed, I think this is the album that Lemmy recorded with them in his short career in Hawkwind.
Pay attention to “Masters of the universe” track and try to link to QOTSA earliest sound….Another piece of history on the G.O.M.E.

01.You Shouldn't Do That
02.You Know You're Only Dreaming
03.Master Of The Universe
04.We Took The Wrong Step Years Ago
05.Adjust Me
06.Children Of The Sun
07.Seven By Seven
08.Silver Machine
09.Born To Go
And to pay off for my lack of recent activity down here, here is a bonus to my man RON, You benn asking for a pre-Qotsa Demo? Well I think that the only thing you will find is this..The Gamma Ray (as they used to call themselves before qotsa's name) demo of "Give the Mule what He Wants-Demo". I know I own you Ron...I'm on it..

This is a great compilation for completists, as well as those of you just discovering the greatness of ACRIMONY. Bong On - Live Long! compiles The Acid Elephant EP with the ACRIMONY side of the CHRUCH OF MISERY split, and separates the EPs with two tracks from hard-to-find compilations. "Earthchild Inferno" was originally released on Rise Above's 1996 Dark Passages Vol. II compilation, while "O Baby" (a STATUS QUO cover) was originally featured on Peaceville's tenth anniversary disc. In my opinion, the best thing about Bong On - Live Long! is that it rescues ACRIMONY's last five recordings, which were quite possibly their very best, from obscurity. When the band called it quits, these recordings were inexplicably thrown on a split release with CHURCH OF MISERY - a stupid pairing that scared away all but the most devout ACRIMONY fans. Those tracks resurface here, though, in all their glory and among other gems from one of hard rock's most underrated bands. This is a great place to start for new fans working their back through ACRIMONY's catalog. For the diehards? It's kind of sad. This is a band that seemed to progress ten-fold with every recording session. Each release was better than its predecessor, and few would argue that the band's two LPs are bona fide genre CLASSICS. Bong On - Live Long! showcases a band clearly in top creative form. While that's obviously the key selling point of the record, it's also proof positive that the band left us just as they hit their stride, and that's unfortunate.

1. Spaced Cat #7 (Hammond Moon-Bong Mix)
2. The Inn
3. The Bud Song

To those of you anticipating ERv4.0, I apologize for the delay. Here it is. As always, feedback and tips are always welcome.

If I may be so bold, I know I still have some technical kinks to work out (not to mention getting more comfortable behind the mic), but I think you guys will dig this week's selections. I started out with no idea what I would play or what I would say, and oddly enough, this might be the best E.R. thus far. At least in my opinion. Hope you guys dig it.

I guess it's been a minute since I've thrown up a QOTSA boot, so here ya go. I actually meant to post this months ago, and thought I already had. Blame it on the nicotine, valium, vicodin, marijuana, ecstasy and alcohol.
This is a great set, though. Great energy, great soundboard recording, great setlist. The 250 of you that are gonna download this without leaving a comment...well...I guess we at G.O.M.E. bleed for leeches, so enjoy, suckercocks. To the Faithful, this one's for you.

Taking it back the early days of G.O.M.E. - As go Big Jack's moods, so goes G.O.M.E. I think you guys will really dig this one, though. I'm no DREAM THEATER fan, but I love their cover albums. This is the classic Dark Side record, performed faithfully by DREAM THEATER, in excellent sound quality, and in front of an audience. I love the original, so I listened to this with a skeptical ear, and I still really enjoy it. The highlight of this album, regardless of who is performing the tune, is always "Us & Them". BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME did a great rendition on their covers album, but this DT version probably takes the cake. I'm biased, though. I could listen to a band of trained apes playing "Us & Them" with Ja Rule on vocals and still get misty-eyed. I don't like prog rock, nor do I like DREAM THEATER, but I recommend this to all the Faithful. If you're not already familiar, check it out. You'll be doing yourself a favor. By the way, if the lovely Jodi M. ever happens to stumble across G.O.M.E., yes I'm finally giving DREAM THEATER some credit. I love 'em when they're playing other bands' songs [rimshot]!

No tracklist necessary.

I didn't come in here to dine. I don't care if you think ORANGE GOBLIN is generic or not, this record is an absolute masterpiece, produced by Scott Reeder and featuring the great John Garcia on two songs ("Jesus Beater" and the absolutely awesome "Made of Rats"). Most of you are probably familiar with this slice of stoner history, but to the uninitiated, you need to check it out. I love ORANGE GOBLIN, but Coup de Grace was their peak. Check out the MISFITS cover "We Bite". This album is flawless from cover to cover.

You guys haven't been getting your usual flow of rock lately, mainly because Mighty Matias and I are working on The Elevator Sessions. Don't fret, G.O.M.E. is still running strong, and I will see to it that we unearth some gems for the Faithful this weekend.

Hopefully you're enjoying ELEVATED RADIO thus far. I have a great show planned for Monday, so I encourage all of you to check it out.

I know the G.O.M.E. Faithfully are collectively big COLOUR HAZE fans, so I thought I'd share their 1995 debut. While the newer smooth-groovin' stuff is more typical G.O.M.E. fare, Chopping Machine gives you a glimpse into where it all started. The production is a little thin, and this is clearly the work of a band searching for their identity, but that doesn't mean it's not an enjoyable slab of forgotten rock & roll. This record actually reminds me of a slew of nameless/faceless post-grunge/would-be metal bands from the mid-90s. Chopping Machine is extremely derivative, but the fact that draws from so many styles (often on the same song) makes it an entertaining release.

SOD HAULER - S/T EP (2003)

Very reminiscent of the same style of songs off of Sleep's Holy Mountain. The songs will be trucking along with a heavy riff, and then out of nowhere the riffs will slow down and change directions on the drop of a dime. The guitar tones are fuzzy and tuned down and drums and bass drive a rock steady foundation for the overall heavy crippling sounds

Yes, I finally quit being lazy and put together the launch of ELEVATED RADIO. I always enjoy traveling with the good Cap'n on an Inner-Head Flight, and I'm also digging Rinjo's S2S podcasts, so I decided it was finally time to throw the G.O.M.E. hat in the podcasting ring. I need to get more comfortable speaking, but things will smooth themselves out with some practice. One highlight (or lowlight, as the case may be) of the podcast is my slow descent into full-blown stoned drunkenness. Hope you guys enjoy it. I'm going to do my absolute best to post a new podcast every Monday, so keep checking back. Also, I've uploaded it to ZShare, so you can download, stream, or both by clicking the link below. Feedback is welcome, but please, be gentle. This is my first time!



Enough Whiskey rock!! Its time to go down, with this 1990 masterpiece, yeah, talking about the great Mark Lanegan, a kind of Johnny Cash drowned in alcohol.
Here he finds a kindred spirit in Kurt Cobain as the two join forces to present "Down in the Dark." And his version of Leadbelly's "Where Did You Sleep Last Night" is as charged as ever with pent-up frustration and jealousy. An emotional journey through the pains of life..

Whiskey rock from Brooklyn? Well, not exactly, but THE BROUGHT LOW does bring a tractor trailer's worth of southern influences to the table. Our main man Jordan requested the debut, which features "Goddamn God Bless", but G.O.M.E. decided to post the band's most recent release, Right on Time. It's the better of the two albums, in my opinion, as well as a favorite. Equal parts AC/DC and LYNYRD SKYNYRD, THE BROUGHT LOW is a band I thought would rival QOTSA on mainstream radio and Billboard charts. Of course, QOTSA has a multinational conglomerate pimping their records while THE BROUGHT LOW's two albums have been released on Tee Pee and Small Stone, respectively. A throwback to simpler times, when rock & roll was both fun and powerful, Right on Time is highly recommended to the Faithful.

1. A Better Life
2. Hail Mary
3. This Ain't No Game
4. Tell Me
5. Dear Ohio
6. Throne
7. Vernon Jackson
8. Shakedown
9. Blues for Cubby
10. There's a Light

Here's a split release from everyone's favorite sons of the south, ALABAMA THUNDERPUSSY, paired with New Jersey (and SOLARIZED) expatriates HALFWAY TO GONE. As splits go, you'll be hard-pressed to find a more likely tandem. Aside from both sides kicking ass to the Nth degree, this split is also notable for being H2G's debut. "Thee Song" might actually be the highlight of the record, though it's hard to overlook the mighty ATP's two contributions. I enjoy the more recent Kyle Thomas ATP stuff, but these tracks are a trip down memory lane...back to the Johnny Thockmorton-fronted Man's Ruin days. Four fantastic shots of the absolute top shelf of whiskey rock.

1. ATP - Heavyweight
2. ATP - Rabdos (The Strangler)
3. H2G - Darktown Strutter
4. H2G - Thee Song


COLOUR HAZE - CO2 (2000)

The G.O.M.E. Faithful seems to really dig COLOUR HAZE, so I thought I'd share this gem from 2000. While COLOUR HAZE eventually became a unique band of a class all their own, this particular record displays a very distinct KYUSS influence. While not quite up to the standards of the band's more recent efforts, CO² is a very solid desert-inspired rock album, and shows many signs of the brilliance that would come later. Highlights include "Motormind" and the epic closing title track.

1. Get It On
2. Shine
3. All Right
4. Motormind
5. Inside
6. CO²

This one's for our main man Roadburner (sorry for the delay, bro). The rest of you can take it or leave it. A lot of people hate ACRIMONY, calling them knockoffs, wanna-bes, poseurs, trend-hoppers, and various other disparaging names. Hell, I believe G.O.M.E.'s own Mighty Matias put it bluntly on this very page: "I don't like ACRIMONY". Well, this demo from '92 is proof positive that ACRIMONY did indeed ape, or attempt to ape, the desert sound. A Sombre Thought is death doom with some thrash/speed metal passages. Based on this tape, you'd never in a million years imagine this band releasing some of the best desert-influenced groove-based rock of the old century. If I haven't made myself clear, let me come right out and say it: I love ACRIMONY, but I never listen to A Sombre Thought. Thank god these guys discovered KYUSS.

1. Ever Sleeping Dawn
2. Mourn the Dead
3. Carved in Stone

Stoner rock from Spain, these guys offer a heavy psych very similar to Los Natas when it comes to song structure, nice mellow acoustics, great ambience, a bit dark from time to time, but it worth to have a listen. It has all you demand from an European band plus they sing in Spanish in some tracks, so.....

01 - Roto Blues
02 - Cardio Limite
03 - Solo
04 - Higomon 2A
05 - Largo Beso Recto
06 - Higomon 2B
07 - Vuelo Inferno After En Marte
08 - Humo De Mota
09 - Valiums

Yet another forgotten Man's Ruin casualty, brought to you by G.O.M.E. In 2001, as the legendary Man's Ruin was circling the drain, they managed to crank out this surprisingly consistent and thoroughly enjoyable album from San Jose's OPERATOR GENERATOR. As you're all no doubt aware, some bands had better luck than others when it came to getting their music heard post-Man's Ruin, and OPERATOR GENERATOR were, unfortunately, one of the more overlooked bands. As for the music itself? They owe the requisite debts to SABBATH, but there's a lot more going on here. These guys were equally influenced by the experimentation and melodic sense of late '60s/early '70s psych rock. Polar Fleet is a bit brief, but it's a great rock & roll record that will have no trouble holding your attention. "Soul of Lavamore", featuring an electric sitar, is worth the cost of admission alone. Highly recommended.

1. Equinox Planetarium
2. Polar Fleet
3. Museum's Flight
4. Atmospheric Insect/The Launch
5. Quaintance of Natherack
6. Arctic Quest
7. Infinite Loop
8. Soil of Lavamore

This is a band I haven't seen discussed much here at G.O.M.E., so I thought I'd offer up their debut. It took me some time to really catch on to Washington DC's DEAD MEADOW, though now I can't get enough of them. To be perfectly honest, Jason Simon is still far from my favorite vocalist, and DEAD MEADOW's eponymous release is far from their best work, but it's a great place to start. The pieces were already in place, from the fuzz-fest opener "Sleepy Silver Door", through the trippy ballad "Dragonfly", all the way through the closing "Rocky Mountain High" (no, not the John Denver song of the same name). Perhaps most interesting are the bizarre twists and turns between those tracks. Is this stoner rock? Neo-Psychedelia? Indie rock? I'm not particularly fond of compartmentalizing music and attaching cute little labels to it. DEAD MEADOW is amazing in the sense that they're absolutely impossible to categorize.

1. Sleepy Silver Door
2. Indian Bones
3. Dragonfly
4. Lady
5. Greensky Greenlake
6. Beyond the Fields We Know
7. At the Edge of the Wood
8. Rocky Mountain High

I intended to post this one a long time ago, but, for whatever reason, I never got around to it. ACRIMONY was one of my favorite bands, and The Acid Elephant EP is no disappointment. I find this brief collection of songs to be the perfect compliment to the classic Hymns to the Stone. "Spaced Cat #7" is ACRIMONY at its absolute best, and I'm sure you'll all agree that "The Bud Song" definitely serves its purpose. Overall, The Acid Elephant EP is essential to the collection of any ACRIMONY fan.

1. Spaced Cat #7
2. The Inn
3. The Bud Song
4. Fire Dance (Live from the Planet Urabalaboom)

Matias and I have been too busy with THE ELEVATOR SESSIONS, as of late, to keep bringing the rock to you guys (and ladies). I'll right that wrong tomorrow, as I've got a load of new stuff for you, including the new MONSTER MAGNET!

Alright, GOMIES (© Mighty Matias), I'm finally mellow enough to post some information regarding THE ELEVATOR SESSIONS. It isn't much, but here's the plan:

-- Everything at this point is merely speculative. I think I know what will work best, but Gordon and I are going to try it out on a cover of "Zombie Eaters". Like I said before, the best way to make this work is to share a sound editor. I'm in the process of sending Gordon some stuff (sorry I didn't get to it yesterday, bro...long day, then Big Biz/Melvins show!), and we'll see how it works from there. It's easier to all use the same sound editor because it enables us to transfer multi-track files, add and subtract from them EQ them, and mix them. When Gordon and I get "Zombie Eaters" knocked out, I'll hopefully be sending the file to our main man Jimmy Morbid, over at S2S, for some crazy keys. I don't want any of you to feel left out, this is just two or three dudes making a quick trial run in order to figure out how exactly we're going to make this happen.

-- Alright, so many of you have stepped up to contribute I can't even remember you all! I've kept the previous post bookmarked and will check the comments often. One of these days, when I'm not so fucking lazy, I'll post a roll call with contributors/instruments and all that jazz. 'Til then, I can honestly say that we need someone to step up and say "I'm a good singer"...or at least "I'm a good shouter/growler/screamer".

-- We also need drums. Or at least someone with the gear to program semi-believable tracks. I hate real mechanical-sounding drums, and I'm sure the G.O.M.E. Faithful does as well. If that's what we have to do, though, then we'll have to do it.

-- MORE BASS! Gordon is the man, and he stepped up first, but I doubt he wants to play bass on every song. If so, then fuck, it might as well be Worldwide Undergordon! I'm going to play a little bass, but we need you guys to speak up now and commit to the project.

-- Be patient. This is gonna be a long process. It'll be incredible when we're finished, but it's gonna take some time. I still need to get with a couple of my buddies, who are G.O.M.E. LURKERS (not FAITHFUL...fuckin' cunts), as well as X-Angel, when we finish "Zombie Eaters".

This shit is gonna rock!


I won't say much about them, they from Iceland, they play a Tipically Northen Europe stoner rock, sometimes similar to Truckfighters, Low Rider, this is their second release, nothing really new, but, man, a band from Iceland! This only totally make it worth it.
Don't fell very chaty today...

If you've been hanging around G.O.M.E. for very long, then you know that we like to throw you the occasional curve-ball. This is one that I think a lot of you will dig...especially if you're familiar with the brilliance that is TURBONEGRO. I believe there is something for just about everyone here, as long as you're in on the joke. TN is all about being absolutely outrageous, and the bands here honor the originals accordingly. The G.O.M.E. Faithful will appreciate appearances from NASHVILLE PUSSY and a Homme/Oliveri/Grohl-powered QOTSA. Other great renditions come by way of HOT WATER MUSIC, PEEPSHOWS, MOTORPSYCHO, and the great THERAPY?.
