Meat Puppets – Meat Puppets II

Posted in Music, Rock with tags , , , on Oktober 2, 2009 by memyselfnmaryjane

I have this one for a long time, but never really listened to it. You may know the Meat Puppets best for their perfomance together with Nirvana on the legendary MTV Unplugged concert. But they are much older then this. The band came up in 1980, founded by the two Kirkwood brothers. Till today you can hear their influence to alternative music. If you only know them from the Nirvana unplugged session, you must try this.



Witch – Paralyzed

Posted in Metal, Music, Rock with tags , , , , on März 2, 2009 by memyselfnmaryjane

This is the second longplayer of the american band „Witch“ (with J Masci from Dinosaur Jr. on the drums). A fast and heavy record, but not to classic. If you like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, you will like this too, but don´t think you will hear a Dinosaur Jr. record, just because of J Masci in the band. It ´s a unique thing, elements of doom, punk, stoner, sludge will be found in it. At least, I would call it something like „psychedelic metal rock“ or so 😉

Jake And The Family Jewels – s/t

Posted in Music, Psychedelic, Rock with tags , , on Februar 14, 2009 by memyselfnmaryjane

Ok, I must say that I don´t know much about Jake And The Family Jewels, I only know that they brought out two records in the late 60s. I would descripe their sound as a kind of sunny psychedelic 60s rock. With a real cool cover of Johnny Cash´s „Tennessee Stud“. A really recommendable record. If you have more information, feel free to post.

Melvins – Nude With Boots

Posted in Grunge, Music, Rock with tags , , , on Februar 7, 2009 by memyselfnmaryjane

What to say, to a band, which is so out of every category? This is the latest piece of King Buzz-O´s Melvins. A record, hard to descripe, against all borders of alternative music, somewhere between punk, psychedelic, stoner rock and grunge. Love it or hate it, I think there´s nothing between it. So get nude, but think about your boots!

PS: When I searched for the cover, I typed in by mistake „naked with boots“ at google images. Try out, very strange and disturbing results 😉

Stone Temple Pilots – No. 4

Posted in Grunge, Music, Rock with tags , , , , , on Juli 5, 2008 by memyselfnmaryjane

Saturday is rock day (what a lame comment 😉 ), so here’s another one. No. 4 the 1999 released record of the grunge band Stone Temple Pilots. I’m not the biggest fan of ‚em, but this one is well made. It has the nice sound of the generation-x 90s, it remains me on the early days when I was watching and recording things on MTV or VIVA II. It’s not a originally made record, they took various elements from their past recordings, to make this one. And it worked, they getted platinum for the No. 4 record. So sit down, look bored and sad and listen to…

Jefferson Airplane – Surrealistic Pillow

Posted in Music, Psychedelic, Rock with tags , , , , , on Juli 5, 2008 by memyselfnmaryjane

I thought it would be time, for another classic. On this record you have the smash hits „Somebody To Love“ and „White Rabbit“. These two songs, which are the most known songs by the band, were brought to the band by their new singer Grace Slick and the new drummer Spencer Dryden. So what else to say to this one? I don’t know, so relax and take one of those funny lookin mushrooms.

John Krane – Doris Buzz And Friends

Posted in Music, Pop, Rock with tags , , , , , on Juli 4, 2008 by memyselfnmaryjane

I found this one and saw, that the artist want his record to be shared on the net. I liked his record, so I’ve decided to share it with you. I don’t know the guy, never heard of before. It’s a nice poppy record, mostly accompanied by a piano and a electric drum. Sometimes it sounds like Adam Green, sometimes it has a very britpop influence. Just listen to it and read his liner notes to the songs. And, do you also think, that the piano on the last track is playing the score of Golden Girls?
