For some reason I'm really digging the first Third Eye Blind album, a bit of a blast from my past, I guess! :-)

i've just been going through piles of CD's and unearthing some great stuff I'd forgotten about


Elbow - Asleep in the Back (2001)

I don't have any of their subsequent albums, and this might be considered 'chilled-out' if it wasn't by turns unnerving and beautiful. You know when you come back to a record you used to listen to all the time after years and it all comes flooding back? I was listening to this and drawing maps of made-up countries (?) when I was supposed to be revising for GCSE's. Something about it just screams 'jackhammer' and 'trip-hop'. I don't know why..


the Buff Medways - Steady the Buffs (2002)

Billy Childish's last garage-rock n' roll outfit, this was released by Transcopic Records which was Graham Coxon's label. I saw them supporting the Hives. Billy has been banging out these albums since the late 70's but the plaudits on release probably owe to the NME's 'new rock revival' of that time. They still had some clout then!

Still the garage-rock 'movement' exposed better bands (White Stripes, Strokes, etc) and was infinitely preferable to whatever it is the music press as pushing on us now... synth-pop revival is it?

Mining old CDs in your collection is great fun, you rediscover some old beauties.... personally through doing that I have rediscovered a couple ofundiscovered Australian indie rock gems:-

Hello Halo - Pollyanna

Rocks on the Soul - Screamfeeder

Paebiru by Lula Cortez and Ze Ramalho

Some very cool Brazilian psychedelia, not the most consistent album but there are moments of absolute brilliance. The frustrating thing is that my version seems to be incomplete, with incomprehensible tagging.

Apparently it was recorded in 1975, but before it was released a warehouse fire destroyed almost all copies. It was re-released in 2005.

Downbeat Electronic Jazz crossover type o thang. Very nice indeed. Wouldn't sound out of place on a classy B noir movie.

I got that one a little while ago too. I haven't listened to it more than a few times but I did like it quite a bit.
