*This is a great recording of a Mondo Cane show from May, I ripped the audio of this from a live video which is available here - - The quality of the audio is excellent until track 12 when is starts getting a bit dodgy. And in case you didn't know Mondo Cane is Mike Patton's group (with Roy Paci (Corleone), an orchestra, choir etc etc etc) which plays Italian songs from the 50's and 60's. Enjoy.

from Wikipedia:
Animal Collective is a New York City-based group of experimental musicians from Baltimore, Maryland. Animal Collective consists of Avey Tare (David Portner), Panda Bear (Noah Lennox), Deakin (Josh Dibb), and Geologist (Brian Weitz). Records released under the name Animal Collective may include contributions from any or all of these members, but the lineup is not uniform. The band members met in school and started recording together in various forms of collaboration from a young age. Although the band is often classified as psych folk or noise rock, it is hard to define the Animal Collective sound as they often experiment with diverse styles and ideas. The group also runs the record label Paw Tracks on which they have released their own material as well as material by artists such as Ariel Pink, Terrestrial Tones, and The Peppermints.
from Me:
If you've never heard of Animal Collective they could be compared to The Flaming Lips, The Polyphonic Spree or Sigur Ros, although they are much better, well better than the Lips and Spree, but Sigur Ros I'm not sure. They are at times catchy, weird, and all over the place. If you have never heard them or you are already a fan (and can't find some b-sides or early albums) then click on the title of this post to find a goldmine of Animal Collective recordings, including all that is listed below in the discography (except the releases marked with an *). Take a chance (start with track 1 from Feels) and enjoy.

#2. Folk Implosion - Palm Of My Hand / Mood Swing 7" (1996)

Released on the Communion Label in 1996, the 2 tracks on
this release were recorded to 4-track cassette in spring 1995.
Although I do love the 2 songs on this record, I also like the artwork,
each track has a full size 7" cover. Palm Of My Hands and Mood
Swing can be also be found on the Folk Implosion self-titled
compilation, along with the 5 tracks from the Electric Idiot 7" (1994)

#1. Smudge - Split with C Minus 7" (1998)

Smudge / C Minus 7" Split (1998)
Side A:
01. Hot Potato (Acoustic Demo)
02. Bread Crumb Trail (Acoustic Demo)
I didn't include the C Minus tracks as I don't know who they are.

This post is the first in a series of some of my favorite 7 inches.
Released in 1998 on BLIND RECORDS the 2 Smudge tracks on
this record are acoustic demos of songs from the 1996 release
"You Me Carpark... Now!". This release is quite rare although I
found it at a second hand record store, and paid $10 for it. For
those who know nothing about Smudge, they are an indie group
from Sydney (Australia) and were active between 1991 and 1999,
they released three studio albums and a bunch of other stuff
(7 inches etc). Initially asked by Half A Cow Records owner, Nic
Dalton, to record a track for his first 7" release, the group went
on to record the "Don't Want To Be Grant McLennan 7" Single",
which became John Peel's record of the week upon release. The
band still occassionally play shows although they haven't showed
up in my hood since 2004, when they played a few shows to
celebrate the re-release of the "Manilow" LP (with Bonus Tracks).
Although late last year Half A Cow Records celebrated its 16th
birthday with a bunch of all star shows around the country.
Smudge (acoustic) was advertised in the line-up but come the
night Tom Morgan felt ill and couldn't play, this also cancelled
headliners Sneeze, as Morgan is also a member of this group along
with Nic Dalton (Godstar, Lemonheads, Hummingbirds etc). So I
left that gig very early in a drunken rage, and killed a bunch of
people on the walk home (for looking at me funny). No not really,
actually Sneeze still played but I couldn't be bothered as I was
disapponted with the whole event, apparently it got bad reviews.
The quality is a bit ordinary, I'd rate it A-
Adam Yee - Bass
Alison Galloway - Drums, Vocals
Tom Morgan - Guitar, Vocals

Statement from the label (Bifocal Media):
"The Making Love Demos is a collection of 8 unreleased tracks recorded by the band in 1987. While the original master tapes have long since disappeared, It just so happens that Mr. Walsby was given a copy of this recording back in ‘88 and held onto it just for this very moment. We’ve had the whole thing mastered and tweaked for your listening/collecting pleasure. It’s still raw as hell, but we like it that way. Four of these songs were re-tooled and recorded for the Ozma record. Four of them exist only on this CD."

Queens of the Stone Age - Walkin' on the Sidewalks

MARK LANEGAN - I'll Take Care Of You

Auto Pilot by Mark Lanegan and Nick Oliveri

Maldoror - She (1999)

Maldoror is Mike Patton & Japanese noise artist Masami Akita (also known as Merzbow). The project formed when Faith No More were on tour in Australia in 1997. I went to the show in Melbourne and I still don't know what the hell it was about. It was noisy and uncomfortable, although support KK Null rocked. The album 'She' is pretty much the same, with some interesting artwork.

Sepultura & Mike Patton

Sepultura & Mike Patton E.P
Track List:
1. Sepultura & Mike Patton - Look Away
2. Sepultura & Mike Patton - Lookaway (Master Vibe mix)
3. Sepultura & Mike Patton - Mine
4. Sepultura & Mike Patton - Mine (Andy Wallace Mix)
5. Sepultura & Mike Patton - Procura O Cara
6. Sepultura & Mike Patton - The Waste
I found this somewhere and thought some people may share my love for all things Mike Patton, it was listed as an exclusive Sepultura & Mike Patton E.P although track 5 is not actually Sepultura, it is Andreas Moraes with 3 members of Sepultura, although yes it does sound a lot like Sepultura (I'm not sure why, duh). Track 1 & 2 have lead vocals by that gimp from Korn, you can hear Patton in the background making those weird noises he does so well, and track 4 is a rare one, not officially released and not as good as the original version. enjoy!

Impractical Joke by SMUDGE (my favourite band)

I've seen them twice recently (well back in 2004) but probably saw them many times when I was a dumb-ass teenager and was too cool to care. Anyway I love them, they are as catchy as hell and Tom Morgan is the greatest song writer ever (see Lemonheads, The Givegoods and Sneeze).

Does anyone still like Queens of the Stone Age?

If you click on the question above it will take you to a Queens of the Stone Age goldmine with all the albums, 25+ rare tracks, 4 E.P's, 12 video clips & a bunch of TV appearances (and ringtones but who cares) all for your downloading pleasure. All you have to do is enter the password which is: qotsahd2. Addressing the above question I thought the last two albums were shit and the subsequent live shows boring as hell, but before that they were brilliant, and do you know what they have been lacking recently, well two things, or people to be exact: Nick Oliveri and Mark Lanegan. Thats all I have to say (or write?).

A Genre Called Noisecore?

or an excuse for an awesome Boredoms photo.
Anyway heres a link to a NOISECORE ftp site, full of noisy downloads, you know all your favourites like Anal Cunt, Anal Fist, Anal Whore, and of course Anal Gore Terror. But on a more serious note also available is The Boredoms Chocolate Synthesizer LP, a rare Boredoms 7" Michidai-Fuanteidai and a very special Sonic Youth E.P which is a live collaboration with Eye from The Boredoms. There is also a Cow's album and some Melvins and Melt Banana. Go Nuts.

Shellac - 1000 Hurts

One of the best damn albums ever produced, I fucking love it and you will too, if not you'll burn in HELL!

The Moldy Peaches

I found this link for the Moldy Peaches album, track 13 is a classic...

Boredoms - Rebore Vol. 3 (2001)

The third or fourth in the series, not sure, another was released
around the same time titled Rebore Vol. 0, a remix entitled
"Vision Recreation By Eye". Anyway this one is titled "DJ Krush
Gigamix" which as the title suggests is a remix by DJ Krush.

Boredoms - Rebore Vol. 2 (2000)

Rebore Vol. 2 is a 50 minute insane trip to hell. A Remix by Ken Ishii,
it's titled "Unidentified Freaked-Up Outsteppers (Non-Stop Ki Mix).

Boredoms - Rebore Vol. 1 (2000)

The first in the Rebore remix series, "Dysfunctional Monster Jam"
is a 46 minute remix/mash-up by UNKLE, culling material from
the Boredoms entire discography (up to 2000). One of my personal
favourites D.M.J is at times melodic, and also quite disturbing.
Enjoy! 1 Track: Dysfunctional Monster Jam (46:05).

BATTLES Live 25th Sept. East Brunswick Club

I saw Battles last night at the East Brunswick Club and it was fantastic, I expected alot and got what I expected. Highlights of the show were Atlas (of course), Tonto, Hi / Lo & Tras, which coincidently are some of my favourite tracks off the EP C / B EP compilation and the Mirrored LP. I attended the gig with a friend of mine who was on a short visit from Japan, having introduced him to the bands music a few days earlier he was equally impressed with the performance. We had a short conversation with Battles guitarist, keyboardist and vocalist Tyondai Braxton and he informed us that the group were on their way to Japan after a visit to Brisbane. So my friend Cameron will hopefully see them again Saturday night, and I'm jealous, but i'll get over it. I took some shitty photo's last night, the one below is BATTLES written in some form of Japanese, thanks to Cameron for pointing that one out.
