We'll expect a full, detailed report on all 100 hours worth of Sundummy sounds by next week.

 ;D  Good luck!  By the third disk, you'll be hitting 'erase' instead of 'play'.   ;)

Everything and Nothing / Re: Cassette tapes..
« on: February 13, 2011, 04:04:28 PM »
Anyone have any interest in a bunch of misc. noise/ambient/odd 80's-90's tapes?  My brother has a box full of NWW, Cock ESP, MSR Tapes, Rising From the Red Sands, etc. cassettes he's gonna either pitch or give away.  If anyone's interested, I can get a detailed list.

Gone to a good home; thanks for playing!

What, nobody wants free electronics?  I thought this board was full of gear geeks!   ;D

This is all going in the trash on Monday, so if you're interested, let me know by then.

Did I mention that the minidisks full of SunDummy stuff can all be erased?   ??? ;)

Inade - the Crackling of the Anonymous.  Very claustrophobic.  Rattles the subwoofer; my dogs think there's a thunderstorm coming.

Seefeel - self-tltled.  An odd one; the repetitive looped guitars are there, and the lazy beats, and the beautiful female vocals - but this time, it's very glitchy and off-kilter.  Like "Quique" playing on a filthy cassette tape while an Oval disk plays in the background.  It's really growing on me, especially "making" and "airless".  An interesting direction for these guys; I approve.

Rapoon - Wasteland Raga.  Much less loopy than his earlier works; very hushed and subdued in spots.  It closes with a return to form much in the vein of Fallen Gods, but with ever-increasing delay added as it turns into sonic mush.  I've lost track of Rapoon for the past few years; I might have to go back and catch up.

Here's the Philips CRD deck I'm giving away:

Free for nothing!  You pay to ship, of course.  This unit doesn't come with all teh incredible and stunning music that the minidisk unit does, but I will include a spindle of 75-ish Philips CDRs. 

Save this from the landfill!

I'm tempted to ask more about this, but... trying to de-clutter!

That's exactly what I'm doing!   ;D

I've got a Philips CDR recorder to get rid of too; if anyone actually want to pay for shipping, it's yours.

It's the Sony MDS-JE480.

Of course, mine's a bit dustier... 

Ok, peeps, here it is, the rarest of the rare:  A massive SunDummy release, spanning 96 minidisks!  That's 128 hours of music!!!  Includes just about everything SunDummy recorded in the last years of its existence, including a recording/playback deck to add to your home system.  That's right, a dusty and finicky Sony minidisk deck is included!

I have no idea what all is on the disks, but if memory serves, there are final mixes of the stuff SunDummy released, as well as alternate mixes, shitloads of unreleased stuff, wild experiments, horrible noise, raw samples, and all manner of audio mistakes and sonic pollution.  Sure to make your neighbors concerned for your well-being.

If you order in the next 60 minutes ('cause you know we can't do this all day...), we'll include a handsome cardboard shipping box - complete with packing tape and address label, with your address on it - for you to display it in!

If you want it, act fast, this whole mess is going in a dumpster soon.   ;)

Swervedriver - Mezcal Head (reissue) (anyone for crunchy vintage shoegaze?)


One of my favorite 'rock' albums ever.  Just perfect in every way.  You can get free live versions of every track at their website; the live version of Duress is absolutely stunning.

Swervedriver, Ride, Sianspheric, and Colfax Abbey were in constant rotation on long road trips back in the day.  Great stuff!

You're in Sweden?  Shipping could get spendy.  I think I'll just hang onto it for now.

Define "reasonable".   ;D

I've got Trances/Drones, the 1994 2cd version on Extreme, XLTD001.  Case good, cd's and booklet excellent.  Even has a pic of Robert with a full head of hair.   ;)

The entire Magma catalog is one big concept album.



Everything and Nothing / Re: Silly Question on disagreeing vs. attacking
« on: December 13, 2010, 09:21:25 AM »
Why, that's the stupidest thing I've ever...  er... ;D

Good question, one that probably has no answer.  Two rational human beings can have diametrically opposed viewpoints, and both be right from their own perspectives.  That seems self-evident to me.  But some people don't get this, or don't want to get it.  I find myself just avoiding these types of people.  Unfortunately, on the interwebz, you can't avoid them easily. 

Some forums I frequent have an "ignore poster" feature - it sure is handy.

Everything and Nothing / Re: Holiday Movies - your favorites and why
« on: November 29, 2010, 08:38:50 PM »
It has nothing to do with Christmas, but ten years ago, my brother brought Fantastic Planet to our family Xmas party; it's now become a tradition.  Since I'm not spending the holiday with the family, I'll just Netflix it instead.  (oh, and on Thanksgiving a few years ago, we watched "Alive".  Lots of jokes during dinner that year...)

Other than that, I don't watch many holiday movies - seen 'em all too many times. 

Everything and Nothing / Re: Happy Thanksgiving

Right on, Bill!  Happy Thanksgiving to you (and the rest of you folks) as well. 

I'm planning on a relaxing day of skiing with the wife, then an evening in front of the fire with some wine, some salmon, and some tunes.  Being 1200 miles from our families is a mixed blessing, but overall, I'm thankful that I get to spend a day with my wife with no other distractions.

Peace, all!

I clicked, and didn't see you naked.

You have to believe...


I hang out at several boards (this is the only music-related one), and participation at all of them seems to ebb and flow over time.  The only difference I see between the more active ones and this one is that it's relatively polite here.  I like that.

There's only so much one can say about our favorite style of music before it gets redundant.  Other than specific new releases, just about any topic or observation can be found to already exist if one uses the search function.  Truly original topics get a flurry of activity, then fade out, which suggests to me that the actual audience of unique visitors is small.  I wonder if the total number of hits you're seeing, Mike, doesn't include a large percentage of bots?  Any way to know?

Oh, and nudity, more nudity.  Can't go wrong with more nudity. 

 ;D ::)

Nudity.  Excessive, gratuitous, unnecessary nudity.
