Virus Concerns / New Links


After some digging around, I found that I do indeed have an infection. When I create a RAR file, I end up with a Screen Saver file, of the same name, in another folder. While I'm taking care of this nuisance, I went ahead and re-upped the FUNKADELIC, MINUTEFLAG and BOB SEGER albums in ZIP format. Please let me know if there are any problems.

BOB SEGER - BACK IN '72 (1973)


Again, not typical G.O.M.E. fare, but a long-forgotten hard rock gem. Despite interest from fans over the course of 35 years, Back in '72 has never been issued on CD. There's a lot here to appreciate, and not just the original studio version of "Turn the Page". Bob's take on the ALLMANS' great "Midnight Rider" is more Motown boogie and southern blues, while "Rosalie" was covered by Thin Lizzy just two years later. The title track features some excellent riffing from none other than J.J. Cale, while "Neon Sky" makes you want to track Bob down in Detroit and get him on your own songs. All in all, this is a great rock record that has somehow evaded the CD generation. And if I've said it once, I've said it a hundred times: IF IT'S TOO OLD, YOU'RE TOO LOUD!

1. Midnight Rider
2. So I Wrote You a Song
3. Stealer
4. Rosalie
5. Turn the Page
6. Back in '72
7. Neon Sky
8. I've Been Working
9. I've Got Time




This admittedly isn't standard G.O.M.E. fare, but those of you who know me are well aware of my love of the '80s indie scene, the music of BLACK FLAG and the MINUTEMEN in particular. This collaboration between the SST heavyweights took place in 1985, while the MINUTEMEN had recently finished their Project Mersh EP, and BLACK FLAG was recording Loose Nut. The bands agreed that the MINUTEFLAG sessions wouldn't be released until one of the bands split. Within months, the legendary D. Boon was killed in a car accident, effectively putting an end to the mighty MINUTEMEN. To date, SST hasn't issued this small piece of rock history on CD.

1. Fetch the Water
2. Power Failure
3. Friends
4. Candy Rush




There really aren't enough superlatives in the dictionary to do this album justice. Free Your Mind... is an absolute masterpiece, and its influence spans PRINCE to CLUTCH and all points in between. My sole complaint was always that the production on this album is downright dismal. Fear not, though, as this set has been tweaked and adjusted by yours truly for your listening pleasure. From the 10-minute acid freakout title track, through the classic "Friday Night, August 14th" and Eddie Hazel's amazing leadwork on "I Wanna Know if It's Good to You?", Funkadelic's Free Your Mind...and Your Ass Will Follow is absolutely essential to any rock fan's collection.

1. Free Your Mind and Your Ass Will Follow
2. Friday Night, August 14th
3. Funky Dollar Bill
4. I Wanna Know if It's Good to You?
5. Some More
6. Eulogy and Light


Wednesday, December 10, 2008

1 The Truth About Cows
2 Surgery
3 Play Dead
4 The Top Of the World

Jack's Back


Hey hey, GOMIES, greetings from the 13th Floor! I've been gone for quite awhile, and hopefully you've all been well during my absence. I also hope you're still checking G.O.M.E., because Matias has posted some great stuff during my sabbatical.

I'll be posting some killer records over the next few days, and ELEVATED RADIO will be once again destroying entire civilizations before the end of the year.

I just wanted to drop a quick line and let you guys know to stay tuned, for you are about the witness the awesome power of a fully-operational mothership.


Thursday, November 13, 2008


Yes, 1974, and Yes a Fuzz storm from Africa, and thats all I will say about this record.
Why did I post this "Ancient African completely unknown for the occidental world" record???
well, hear it and then, you tell me why....

Let's see how many of the stoner brotherhood we can gather...

Love you all!!

Sunday, November 02, 2008


Finally, something that I'm sure Cheeto hasn't posted on his blog. This time, an Argentinean completetly unknown band.
In fact, they live a few blocks from home, I and didn't notice them till a few weeks ago... anyway listen this, this is very similar to the previous post, but with spanish singing.


Friday, October 24, 2008


Last weekend, I have the fortune to be in the Mudhoney show here in Bs As, an overwhelming show indeed, I recommed to any of you my gnomies to check them out, they fucking rule, and they are over 40, fuck man! I wish I could be like them when I were 40...anyway, this postg it's not to talk about my wishes, but to talk about this great Argentinean that came to my mind when they opened the show, along with Los Natas.
First, I want to make clear that this is not a standart GOME fair, but most of you will appreciate this Surf revival music, in fact, I believe they are one of the best in the whole world doing this, I suggest you to check them out also, lost of reverb, lost of tremolo....



Friday, October 10, 2008


Surfing the Financial Crisis, the well-known European Stoner/Metal heros, Dozer came up with a new album, very similar to the last one, with remarkably singing work and good song structure.
Not their best, but a nice effort though....and since this year we didn't have a nice release, ths one could be among Top 10's 2008 Stoner Rock albums..I'll have to think about the other 9.
I gave you music, now, a free advice from the GOME staff:
Whatever you do, get the fuck away from the financial markets


Tuesday, October 07, 2008


Well, It's been a while.....this fucking financial crisis is taking me away so much time, but I can't leave the "Familia" (Cheeto®). The brand New Nebula EP, It is not "just another nebula EP", it`s very rare if you ask me, too much voice effects, delays, sampling, chorus like I've never heard in Nebula before...anyway, It's a nice, short, but nice EP to remind us that there is people still believe in science.
Beware of the financial crisis! Love you guys


1. Pulse
2. The Dagger
4. Dream Submarine
5. In The Depth's
6. The Other Side
7. Running of the Bulls


Friday, September 19, 2008


No, nothing to do with Kyuss song, indeed, this is the Japanese Doom/Stoner band, recomended for Boris fans, listen. Take care! Brief comment this time, I'm fucking afraid of the financial crisis.
  1. Black Summer
  2. Punisher
  3. Anima
  4. Into the Bigsleep (Red Eye Pt. 3)

COCTOPUS-Twelve Inches Of...Coctopus (2008)

Some of you might dig this one, If you are like me, then you won't...I don't know why I'm posting this, maybe because is only 25MB, a fast upload may I say..anyway, there you have your preview... no tracklist either......
BTW, if you missed some of the old post, you can check my mediafire folder, where most of the thing I ' ve uploaded is.



Sunday, September 14, 2008


We are back man! we are fucking back!

Right in the vein of Kyuss/Dozer, a few Italian dudes made this lovely album, I guess it was in 2006, doesn mind, I didn't get the traklist either, you could notice I'm fucking lazy these days.....
Anyway, as you are used to, I made a preview, the best song in the album I guess.
take care my gomies® !! The GOME refuse to die!

The "Mysterious" Track on Songs for the deaf

All right, let's begin with the story behind this track..... back in time in 2002, when this was released in the US, but not yet released in Argentina by Sony, I guess they printed a month later than the official world release date in Argentina, so it was nearly impossible to get this imported and too fucking expensive, so we had to wait to the local print, (which always sounds in lower quality than the American editions) but speaking of QOTSA's, they always add a bonus track, in this case The Kinks cover "Everybody is gonna be happy", so far so good. The thing goes like this... since I couldn't wait for the local edition, and even less pay for an import album, bear in mind that in those days Internet wasn't what it is today, imagine that in Argentina...
Well, for my surprise I found a copy of this record in a "street records store" AKA a person who sells home-burned CDs and movies in the street...really unusual for this type of music, anyway the more surprising thing was that it was even before the world release..
Eventually, a month later I get an official copy, but there were some differences, in sound and about this track that wasn't listed... some days ago I went to a friends house who had a pirated copy bought on the street like a year ago in a very different place where it bought it....and guess what, it has this song right between tracks 9 & 10, so thinking, I'm pretty sure that most of the pirate copies distributed in Argentina came from a Master tape who slipped in hands of someone who made a copy for this pirates to distribute, believe me, this kind of business is conducted like a mafia, so if I guess right, that song was on the master tape sent by Interscope to Argentinean editors and went to someone that made circulate a copy even before the printings.

Speaking about the song, I'm pretty sure that is Mark Lenegan voice, and absolutely sure that is a Dave Groll's drumming....I never found this song in any compilation of B sides or whatsoever, did some research on Lenegan's stuff, but i found nothing till now...
Have you ever heard this song before?

SAHG - II (2008)

This last release finds Sahg closer to a 70's hard rock revival than a propper Norweagn Doom band, some reminences to "Black Sabath" that could be interesting sometimes specially on #6 Pyromancer...but to be honest..I don't dig this at all...., nevertheless, I share it.

1.Ascent To Decadence
2.Echoes Ring Forever
3.From Conscious Sleep
5.Escape The Crimson Sun
7.Wicked Temptress
8.By The Toll Of The Bell


Sunday, June 22, 2008


Our Man BJ sent me this one to share with you, and now I know I should have posted this before, but It's never too late, you may ask what's this, well this is a hell of a record, very alike "Tempel" but what I found here is a grooviest sound like i never heard from CH, and is very smooth....another record to listen "in the propper state of mind"

  1. Silent
  2. Moon
  3. Turns
  4. Lights
  5. If
  6. Stars

Obviously not, Peluka, though I'm sure you're not the only GOMIE wondering!

Truth be told, guys, I have a friend who's been going through some hard times, so I've been spending as much time with her as possible. I've been on the road a great deal, and that's made it impossible to contribute regularly to G.O.M.E., let alone stay on track with ELEVATED RADIO.

I will be back very soon, with tons of killer records and shows. 'Til then, please thank Mighty Matias for keeping G.O.M.E. rolling.

See you guys soon.

Peluka's Request ***Nick Olivieri x 2****

The first all in one, Nick Olivieri's Demolition Day EP & Mondo Generator III EP, because my Gomies deserve all.


I choose this one because of Cream Abdul Babar tracks. It's way more than a funny name band, the Kylesa part it's Ok also, but I' ve found more rewarding the first one. This is definitely worth grabbing for fans of off-the-beaten-path heavy. You won't be disappointed
  1. Shiss (Cream Abdul Babar)
  2. Cocaine Pinata (Cream Abdul Babar)
  3. Troy:sailor (Cream Abdul Babar)

Rick Rubin gets a lot of credit for his work with Johnny Cash, Glenn Danzig and countless others, though he's rarely mentioned as the lummox that dropped the ball with FLIPPER, UNIDA and, of course, the legendary TROUBLE. One for the Road was a post-American Recordings EP sold on tour in Europe. I probably wouldn't call this particular release essential, but if you're like me, you want all the TROUBLE you can get your hands on. It's kinda cool hearing earlier (and rougher) versions of "Another Day" and the classic "Requiem". G.O.M.E.'s all-time most downloaded album is TROUBLE's Manic Frustration, so I know the band is well-liked on the 13th floor. With that it mind, I recommend it.

1. Goin' Home
2. Window Pain
3. Requiem
4. Another Day
5. Doom Box


Wednesday, April 16, 2008


Well, there is not much to say about this band of Texas, a sometimes particular sound and original also, but without moving aside too much from the Southern rock we are used to ,yet another band, check the preview for details.

  1. Festivus
  2. Ode to Carlo
  3. Louder than Larry
  4. The Dude
  5. Electric Sheep
  6. Master Blaster
  7. Autozone
  8. The Only Reason You Got in Front of Me was Because I Let You
  9. From the Mouth of Gandalf

Thursday, April 03, 2008


Well, it's been a while since a 5ive record, after mighty Continuous Project, they came out with this masterpiece of instrumental music, very heavy and dense guitars, as well as mellow tones, especially in the last 2 tracks called News, well, the preview speaks for itself.

I'm back, fuckers! Thanks for sticking around. I don't have a whole lot to say that I didn't mention on the show, but I do apologize for the lengthy high-atus (© The Good Captain). I've had a lot going on, guys. Hell, you all know how it is, the GOMIES are the sharpest bunch of bad motherfuckers in the world! Sometimes, life gets in the way of rockin' and takin' it to the people. It SHOULDN'T, but it does. So I'm not gonna make any more promises I can't keep. My sole vow to you, the G.O.M.E. Faithful, is that I will try my absolute DAMNEDEST to have a new show for you every week.

I think this week's show is pretty solid, though you already know if I didn't like it, I wouldn't play it. I think back to Cheeto saying he burned each show for his feline friends. He can't be the only cat doing that, so this week's installment is all about positive energy. It's getting warmer outside, at least in my neck of the woods, so this is rock & roll to light a grill to. Drink some beers or corn whiskey. Roll up your secret "special occasions" stash. Plug in and come up with some rockin' shit for The Elevator Sessions. And make sure you let Matias know how much you appreciate his hard work. If it wasn't for him, G.O.M.E. would've faded away long ago. He's kept us alive and thriving and kicking ass with steel-toed Argentinean boots!

Thanks are in order for all the GOMIES still checking us out, especially The Brotherhood listed at the right of this page. Thanks in particular to Cheeto and X-Angel for "supplying new ragers" (© Kill 'Em All).

This the return of both Elevated Radio, and a fully functional G.O.M.E. Let me know what you want to hear.

Thanks again, and cheers!

Big Jack

You know the drill.


Tuesday, March 11, 2008


I thought I was the only one Argentinean who knew and enjoys the mighty YAWNING MAN, well, after hearing this, I do know I'm not alone now.....what this guys pulled is an overwhelming records, with a sound engineering amazingly great for a band of this kind..
(Remember, we are talking about Argentina and his lack off producers& engineers) so nothing to envy the big (?) budget instrumental bands.
Trippy man! I recommend it

1. Hidrofobia
2. Paralexis
3. Acuático
4. Superastor
5. Las cuatro estaciones
6. Aquatalan
7. La nave nodriza
8. Tantra
9. Mantra


PREVIEW ONE SONG HERE (yeah baby, previews are back!!)

Thursday, March 06, 2008


The "other" Argentinean band from the small Argentina's stoner scene, Buffalo, with the former Los Natas's bass player (who plays guitar here). Their second release bring us a more powerful and volatile album, if you are looking for a new sound, you won't find it here, but it's always interesting to hear some Spanish singing rock. The overall production is quite excellent as well.

01. Tourismo*
02. Una casa
03. Guardapantanos*
04. Vertical
05. Infinidad
06. Hombre ciego
07. Karma*

10. El fantasma sobre Rio Grande
11. Ciudad perro

*My favourites

Take it or leave it, but I've noticed that pretty much everyone to stumble across our cozy little corny of the blogosphere tends to worship at the altar of Brother Brant. This soundtrack is certainly cool for what it is, but ultimately, you need the entire visual experience of the film to truly appreciate it. There are definitely some highlights here, but a great deal of Sabbia's music is simple demos and outtakes in less-than-crisp quality. That doesn't mean the tracks aren't interesting - I'm just not gonna sit here and say the music by itself is essential Brant Bjork. It's cool to groove to, but for the full experience, head on over to Amazon and order the DVD. Kate McCabe did a fantastic job giving Brother Brant's music visual accompaniment. And there are used copies for like $6.

1. Cobra Jab
2. Cool Abdul
3. Drums & Cocktails
4. El Rolo
5. Fresh Coffee
6. Future Freak
7. Heavy Nature
8. Hinda65 (Return Flight)
9. Joint Ritual
10. Kaleidoscope
11. Let the Truth Be Known
12. Nectar Alamo
13. Palm Tree Reader
14. Rock n' Role
15. Shrine
16. Ultimate Kickback



This one comes to you, the G.O.M.E. Faithful, by way of our main man The Good Captain, of Sonic Daydream and Inner-Head Flight Royale fame - and what a killer contribution it is! How did I miss out on these guys? This is one incredible slab of rock, Gomies. Like I told the Cap'n, this record reminds me of both early MONSTER MAGNET and PANTERA's more groove-based music. I don't want to gush too much, and maybe it's just that I needed to discover something new after a tumultuous couple of weeks, but I find this to be a damn near flawless rock record. Over the course of Viejo Diablo, you'll hear traces of the aforementioned MONSTER MAGNET and PANTERA, as well as KYUSS, HAWKWIND, SABBATH, and even the STONES and STOOGES! Brilliant rock, excellent guitar work, heavy on the smack and trippies, tailor-suited for G.O.M.E., compliments of The Good Cap'n. Dig it.

1. Get Out of My Way
2. Galactic Blues
3. Viejo Diablo
4. Black Stone
5. Cosmic Emperor

DEATH FROM ABOVE 1979 - You're A Woman I'm A Machine (2005)

Definitively not a standard G.O.M.E fare, but man… I don’t know what to post that hasn’t been posted yet on all this “stoner bloggers brotherhood” so, I opted for this that someone labeled as stoner rock, I prefer to call it prog, or just indie but don’t let this last confuse you, this two Canadian guys (drum & bass only) truly rocks…Enjoy

This re-up is for Alice in Wonderland (sorry for the delay!). For the uninitiated, FIREBALL MINISTRY kicks ass, and they're more than likely much better than your favorite band. This EP in particular is very cool, as it features Rev. Rota & Co.'s unique twist on some tunes by ALICE COOPER, JUDAS PRIEST, MISFITS, AEROSMITH, and BLUE CHEER. I particularly dig the AEROSMITH cover ("Movin' Out"), but the whole EP is great. Especially if you don't own Second Great Awakening for the original tracks. "Maidens of Venus" is among the band's absolute finest work.

1. King
2. Choker
3. Maidens of Venus
4. Muscle of Love
5. Victim of Changes
6. Fortunes
7. Cough/Cool
8. Movin' Out



Cheeto and the Sludge Swamp staff recently upped this one, but in case you missed it, here it is again. The mighty ACID KING absolutely KILLS this set on our brand of rock's grandest stage, the 2007 Roadburn Festival. Lori's never sounded better vocally, and her guitar is just punishing. While the tracklisting reads somewhat like a Greatest Hits set (as if ACID KING's had any "hits"!), the performance is top-notch in every respect. Essential.

1. Busse Woods
2. 2 Wheel Nation
3. Heavy Load
4. Electric Machine
5. Bad Vision
6. On to Everafter
7. Into the Ground
8. Sunshine & Sorrow



COLOUR HAZE is always a big hit, both on Elevated Radio and here at G.O.M.E. They're one of my favorite bands, and they've never released a bad record, yet they've continued to progress and evolve with each project. I've spent a lot of time listening to Tempel as of late, and I've decided it's my personal favorite. As far as albums go, I'm hard-pressed to name a more fluid and cohesive one. Start-to-finish, this is the perfect soundtrack for enjoying an elevated state of consciousness. Chef's selections? The whole record, folks. Don't skip a single note.

Another Man's Ruin casualty, a Sludgy Southern Whisky Rock, (12 years Scotch, may I say?). Love the song, an extract form their myspace site.

1994 was the year,Trailer Hitch was the group,this band of five individuals ruined so many tour vehicles,stages,borrowed instruments and dressing rooms that I can't mention the individuals by name.These were nice men during the day,then something changed when the smell of the bar hit their collective olfactory sences and it was time to start thinking about the mission ahead of them.They became some sort of single brained machine capable of anything and consuming everything.There are hundreds of incredible stories from shows of raw meat,explosives,blood and a shit load of cold beer smashed together with Marshalls to eleven,bombastic drumming,while being spearheaded by a screaming sinewy six foot three ex-demolitions specialist who enjoyed hurting himself while in the nude with combat boots on.The mix of personalities in this band was cumbustable at best and the band longevity was short(6 years)but blindingly bright(due to a visit to a indiana fireworks outlet).This was a band who was cursed from the jump,Studio sessions wrecked by inept engineers,Instruments stolen,kicked out and banned from clubs ..sometimes halfway thru the set,vehicles broken into and members nearly murdered,Trailer Hitch somehow released two CD's but recorded four..they should of been huge but they were their own worst enemies....thats why we loved em so god damn much,cuz they were Beautiful fuckin Disasters...

For the 150 of you checking in today for Elevated Radio, and especially the five or six of you that intend to leave comments about the show, I regret to note that there will be no Elevated Radio until tomorrow at the earliest. Your humble host injured himself this morning, during domestic duties, leaving a hole in his right hand in which a goldfish could live a long and happy life. The medication for said injury, especially coupled with the usual Big Jack booze intake, might sound like the makings of a great show. Unfortunately, I'm just not up to it. I'll try tomorrow, and if it doesn't happen, maybe one of you guys will put together a good show in my absence.

Damn Romans,

If I've said it once, I've said it a million times - As go Big Jack's moods, so goes G.O.M.E. A lot of you already know that Mike Patton is one of my all-time favorite vocalists, and that FAITH NO MORE is one of my all-time favorite bands. Those of you involved with The Elevator Sessions know that my all-time favorite song, "Zombie Eaters", happens to be a FAITH NO MORE tune (I warn you in advance, you'll not find the definitive version here). That said, here's a FNM set from 1990, recorded live (soundboard) in Libourne, France. I think fans will find a lot to enjoy here, even if Mike Patton was still learning how to use his voice in live performance, as opposed to the studio. He tanks numerous times, and the band itself butchers my all-time favorite song (but they wrote it, so I guess I can let 'em slide). Still, there's a lot to like. Billy Gould's bass never sounded tighter, and how many groups have you heard cover a Nestle's commercial (check the intro to "Surprise! You're Dead!")? This set is the sound of a band still cutting its proverbial teeth, figuring out what works and what doesn't, while keeping their sets interesting and entertaining. In my opinion, FAITH NO MORE hit their stride with Angel Dust, and became an excellent live band, as well as in the studio. This boot focuses on The Real Thing, and the set is very much like the record: uneven, schizophrenic, a little sloppy...but ultimately enjoyable.
