Earthlings?, yeah man, Earthlings, that forsaken bunch of Palm Springs veterans, great album, if I have to define it, i'll put it somewhere between Orquesta del Desierto and the earliest Desert Sessions, definitively a different approach to what we know as Desert Rock, some passages reminds me also to Jalamanta, and after a few listens, you'll be able to recognize Dave Catching's musical concepts.
I think this was a pretty damn good conceptual album, a bit ahead for that time; it still sounds fresh and clean. You heard it first on G.O.M.E.

1. Nothing
2. Saving Up For My Spaceship/Illuminate
3. Reaper (Don't Fear This Child)
4. Cavalry
5. Happiest Day Of My Life
6. Conversing Among Misfits
7. Mars On Fire
8. Stungun
9. The Dreaded Lovelies
10. Icy Halls Of Sobriety (I Dare Not Tread)
11. Triumphant March Of The Buffoons

Yes, another desert cruiser, you know you're classics, great band

By the way download this one from the other great Blog D.T.B.S.I.A.S.S.(link them) Wallrus - The Wind Blows Witches From The Sky: (Password: sludgeswamp)

This one hell of a band from my country.

Yeah, this is a tried and true desert classic. Not typical desert fare, with guest shots from Victoria Williams and the amazing Martina Topley-Bird, but a classic nonetheless, and probably the late great Fred Drake's finest hour. Scott Reeder joins Fred and Dave in contributing bass duties. It was actually rumored at the time that Dave Grohl played drums throughout, but he actually just contributes vocals. Awesome post.

I ordered the Butcher cd (not from themself), don't know how long it takes (because my order was greater than one item),when I get it I gonna look how to rip & post (never did that, so you have to patience with me, hehehe)

By the way are you able to score the Across the River Boot?, hope so !, and how do you like Walrus???, great band isn't it?


Matias said...

Ron, my friend, I got in touch with a former SST employee, but even for him was imposible to get it, I hv other source, so I think this time I'm gonna make it. Walrus??, the little I heard from them was good, I should get more into it.
Ksn, while waiting for Tumuli Shroomaroom, have a listen to this rareties compilation of Acrimony.
Later I will tell you how to upload files..
See you guys! keep on coming

Ron-- I guess it's just Rapidshare, man. Everyone seems to be able to access the link but me.

Thanks anyway.
