Re Uploads!!!!!! - Simply Saucer, The Firebirds, The Smoke, The Velvet Underground

due to several requests, which I had ignored for a long time, and my laziness to do an all original post, I've decided to upload some of the classics of this blogs pathetic past. No stinkers here, so you can be sure this is quality material all around. Don't be a dickhead, leave a comment cuz that what keeps me motivated.

Two questions for any readers out there (there must be SOMEONE reading this blog (there are obviously downloaders, but readers?)) :

1) I would like to know how I can use ODEO to embed a single sample song into the blog posts like this guy does HERE. I would like to blog about some newer, and more CopyRight sensitive material (current re-issues, or still in print material).

2) How can I set up a forum that links to my blog, like this guy does over HERE (he actually uses ODEO also). Call me dumb, but I would like to talk to other like minded people about music.

anyways, on to the show.....

Simply Saucer - Cyborgs Revisited (1974-1975 - Velvet Underground, Syd Barrett Pink Floyd, Silver Apples)

Simply Saucer - Cyborgs Revisited [Expanded] This is a band that would be next to impossible to over hype, but dag-nabbit, I'm going to try. The reason for this is because Simply Saucer's Cyborgs Revisited is not only as earth shatteringly great as anyone has ever said in some pompus british hype-machine mag, Simply Saucer is better....

link to the original post. And Leave a comment, bastards.

The Firebirds - Light My Fire (1969 - exploito-heavy psych, Blue Cheer)

The Firebirds - Light My Fire From all accounts this isn't even a real band. Just a group of studio muscians cramed in a studio to make a quick buck on the wild and untamed youth and their endless hord of disposable income.

But unlike other fly-by-night mob-money exploito-shlock toss-offs, The Firebirds and their alter ego (read: label cash in) 31 Flavors manage to tear a new hole in the delicate fabric of stoned-dead Blue Cheer style acid-guitar nightmare rock. Burried under an avalanch of toxic-fuzz, the all-fills-all-the-time drums despratly try to dig, nay, beat their way out of this flash-back induced hell. The punchy bass acts as the massive counter-weight, giving force from the back, and the amature-Robert Plant gives this warship its direction.

The Smoke - ...It's Smoke Time (1967)

I had always thought this band was German, or Dutch. I guess it there were a number of factors including the fact that they are pretty well known, but artn't huge. With a single like "My Frind Jack" I can't see how thay could slip under the rader unless thay were from out side of England. The band members names are Mick Rowley, Geoff Gill, Mal Luker, and Zeke Lund. I figued that with names like Geoff, Mal, and Zeke thay had to be dutch. Also the repressing I have is all in dutch (or German, whatever).

the velvet underground - VU + Another View (1969)

The Velvet Underground - VU

The Velvet Underground - Another View

.....durring the mid-80's return of interest in the band, their previous label, Verve, realized that they were sitting on a pile of unreleased Velvet meterial. These 1984 and 1986 albums contained most all of the unreleased album, as well as a hogepog of other tracks. Some of these tracks are great rock and roll numbers (Foggy Notion, We're Gonna Have A Goodtime Together, Temptation Inside Your Heart), brillent pop songs(She's My Best Friend, Ride Into The Sun), while others try to fill some of the avant-guard void that John Cale left (Ferryboat Bill, Hey Mr. Rain).

About the forum thing, you can try this website http://www.setbb.com/, and click on the free phpbb message board link on top. That's the easiest way to do it, if don't have a server.
