LATEST UPDATE 6/9 Frank Zappa - Teen-Age Wind

GUITAR/BASSnsw1-6

 

The opening cut on the 1981 album You Are What You Is, "Teen-Age Wind" addressed the American youth's request for freedom without the burden of responsibility. All the teenaged character wants to do is go to a Grateful Dead concert, sniff glue, and get ripped. He also mentions going "to a midnite [sic] show of 200 Motels," which prompts a guest appearance by Jimmy Carl Black reciting some key lines from Zappa's movie script, such as "Opal, you hot little bitch!" and "You ain't the devil!" After this first part in a pop mood, the piece takes a turn toward the rhythmically complex for the conclusion. Zappa mocks teenagers in his closing chorus: "Free is when you don't have to pay for nothing/Or do nothing/We want to be free/Free as the wind," scorching Kris Kristofferson's hit "Ride Like the Wind" on the way.

LATEST UPDATE 6/10 Soundgarden 2 pack

GUITAR: Kassu

 

“Room A Thousand Years Wide”, a heavy, sludgy riff wedded to a lumbering rhythm that somehow feels slow and fast at the same time. Vocally, it’s relatively sparse—only a couple of minimal verses that segue into a refrain comprised of only three words: “Tomorrow begets tomorrow.” It traffics in the lyrical ambiguity that characterizes so much of the band’s music, with oblique references to “one who loved what love denied.” “Room A Thousand Years Wide” is what Soundgarden does best: Ambitious hard rock with the head of a music geek and the heart of a headbanger.

“Mind Riot”, which combines a good bass riff intro with guitars entering in turn with a fine effect, and when drums finally enter with an odd tempo, it all resolves with a really cool vibe going that is kind of bluesy and somewhat Eastern influenced.

Brilliant. Thanks for these, sir. Great to see so much Soundgarden in the game now. Not so great is the catalyst.

LATEST UPDATE 6/12 Mastodon Monday - Crack the Skye

YCs3kKr.jpg
Video Preview

 

GUITAR: Ungrateful Dead

BASS: Gigakoops

 

The title track, "Crack The Skye", features vocals by Scott Kelly of NEUROSIS. "We heard Scott's voice all over that track," Dailor says. "It's really NEUROSIS-sounding and then when it became the title track, in particular vocally and lyrically it had a lot to do with Skye so it made it even more perfect that Scott would be doing the verses on it just because he is very familiar with that tremendous loss, suicide, stuff like that…"

5 LANE KEYS: MrBurpler

 

"We Are Not Alone" is an untypical instrumental piece included on the 1983 LP The Man From Utopia. Over a straight 4/4 beat, Frank Zappa wrote a simple and catchy saxophone melody (performed by Marty Krystall), followed by a variation on mallet percussion. The theme is played twice, without a guitar solo in between, which is highly uncharacteristic.

The actual Ty Cobb was a fantastic baseball player in the early 20th century, and purportedly had a terrible temper and was a huge racist piece of shit. According to the band, they just used “Ty Cobb” as place-holder of a symbol that everyone would know as a notorious piece of shit. It’s not really about baseball, the lyrics aren’t “I’m hitting/ fuck you all” it’s “hard-headed fuck you all.” Hey, at least he’s got a stubborn cardio-punk song to his name.

Centered on Cornell's enunciated, melodic vocals atop the music written by Cameron and Thail, the song even goes so far to credit someone for "harmonic guidance": Fred Chalenor. The song thematically picks back up the thread of fierce suns and dissolution. "The wreck of you / is the death of you all."

LATEST UPDATE 6/19 Mastodon Monday - The Ruiner

WKkFt7k.jpg
Video Preview

 

GUITAR/BASS: spiralshadow123

 

Brann Dailor: "The Ruiner" was written during the “Crack the Skye” sessions as well. That one and “Deathbound” were the two from those sessions that were the furthest developed songs that didn’t get used for “Crack the Skye” because they were just too heavy and too fast and crazy. “Crack the Skye” had taken on this whole other vibe so “Deathbound” got trapped in the studio. “The Ruiner” did not so we tracked it for this record. It’s a fast, crazy song. I wrote it on my Dictaphone just kind of humming the riffs. Bill’s got a riff in there as well. It’s just a classic, kind of heavy Mastodon song.
