Re: aotw 10/5/20: rich hopkins-godfather of desert rock

album closers can't let go LmQCXm2p0sI like a march into the valley. drums keeping steady corps cadence. guitar heroics remind of a mournful death horn leading an ancient army into battle. jangle interludes are moments of gossip among the soldiers....until hopkins call brings them back to focus on ...

Ah ha Swamp - your Georgia pick was WAY OFF! Plus with our thrashing of Auburn, we jumped ahead of y'all in the rankings! Gotta love it. Now it's Tennessee which should be a good battle - Always a good fight from two teams who have been playing each other before California was even a state. Califor...

Re: Last Movie Watched

A very good Japanese horror film I saw years ago is called Organ. Check it out if you don't mind bloody movies. I recently caught up with an early 70s independent film called Toys Are Not For Children. It's well done and rather interesting. There's a major plot point that is not entirely clear (open...

Il Maestro. Maybe the greatest composer of film music ever.
I would say so. Bernard Herrmann, John Williams, Dimitri Tiomkin, Alfred Newman, and Elmer Bernstein are also on the short list.

Re: DBT Quarantine Livestreams

Someone else also requested it on the chat. Don't know if they had emailed it before the show. It was funny when some...

Re: Feature of the Week (3/18/12) The Ditch Trilogy

My copy of Homegrown arrived on Saturday and I'm loving it.

He's also done it live in recent years including with Crazy Horse but I've nev...

I'm loving it so far. Just started second listen. I hear a little of After the Gold Rush and a lot of Harvest (but these are just a little later at night than the songs on Harvest). Florida could have been on "On the Beach." Or a Tom Waits album. I like White Line here better than the version on Ra...

Re: How would you feel if DBT....

Probably because DBT is the backing band on the album, Patterson produced it, and Patterson wrote the album's liner notes.
