The OF Rule Roslyn Feb 21!

January 28th, 2015

Yes, my Brothers and Sisters. The Revolution is on with The OF 100% live and free in beautiful Roslyn. Power to the People! Will they play songs from the soon-to-be-released Escapegoat? Yes, you know they will. Will they play beautiful songs from their debut, Oh, It’s The OF. I think it likely. How far to Roslyn from Seatown? Only 83.2. Or 88.5 if you walk the Iron Horse Trail. Boom!

Back in the Saddle Again!

After going thru Pro Tools ugh the last two plus weeks, things seem to be working and it is time to finish my record, History of NW Rock Vol. 1. I anticipate it will be pretty nice.

Tymber Has NEW album out with The Deadlies!

January 27th, 2015

Our old pal Tymber of Slam Suzzanne has a new album out with her Surfin’ buds – The Deadlies. This is their first album with vocals and their first with Tymber. Check it out here - it’s pretty damn cool. I believe Tymber will be in Seatown to do a gig with Slam Suzzanne March 28 which will be most excellent fun.

One of the Good ones.

Our dear friend George Romansic has been fighting the good fight for some time now. He’s done a ton of wonderful things in the music industry from playing it, to selling it. We love him very much.

We are sorry to hear that he passed away Sunday. We’ll miss you George.

Jeff and Susanne Kelly: Coffee By Reckless Moonlight

January 23rd, 2015

Review from MARMALADE. Google translations from Greek: Somewhere between the stunning second (Book Of Hours) and third (Ghosts Of Love) album of Green Pajamas, o Jeff Kelly, guitarist and singer, he recorded a cassette for the Green Monkey Records.
While Green Pajamas is generally an electrical schematic of neopsychedeleias, the cassette is called Coffee In Nepal only the acoustic guitar Kelly, his voice and some vocals belonging to Susanne Kelly, who is the young wife of Jeff . (Listen to “Oh How I Love You” here.)
Greece is the country that this job is better known as the cassette of Green Monkey released on vinyl five years later by DiDi Music. A beautiful loving tray with juvenilia songs but having relief sensitivity and musicality of the songwriter Jeff, so close and yet so far from the aesthetics of the Green Pajamas.

Now, thirty years later, Jeff with Susanne move continuity Coffee In Nepal titled By Reckless Moonlight. The album finds them more in love than what old, unroll the folk searches with several more electrically. Participation of Susanne is much more evident and is precisely its view that makes the end result much more psychedelic.
The By Reckless Moonlight puts no nomination for the best albums of the year but is a beautiful album daydream, monitoring the phases of the moon and hope that the people who make two people can take. Enjoy “I ‘d Rather Be Filming In Vanda’s Room” here.

This is not the cover either. This was made from a picture of a metal clipboard collage made by Kip Phillips of the Queen Annes. American Primitive.

Finally, A Post!

January 22nd, 2015

So I’ve been remiss in my duties for a variety of reasons – mostly Pro Tools issues driven by Satan himself, but I hope to get back to the happy land of mixing and finishing my History of Northwest Rick Vol. 1 album. Soon. In the meantime, The OF have finished Escape Goat, but the Seahawks are in the Super Bowl and last I heard Mr. OF, John Carey, is going to the Super Bowl again this year, so we’ll get around to it pretty soon.
In the meantime, I thought you might be amused to see some of the proposed covers that we not used. We have pretty high standards dammit.

“Weirdest album this year, Tom Dyer from Seattle”

January 2nd, 2015

Ok – one more. Translated from Dutch. “Weirdest album this year, Tom Dyer from Seattle. He is a kind of outsider musician recording since 1983 Christmas songs . Fifteen of these are collected on the CD ‘ Xmas- 30 Years In The Making . It opens with a song in which a few choirs compete in “Ho Ho Ho ” sing. The next song sounds like the Velvet Undergound and therefore called ‘No Lou This Xmas . In ‘ Christmas Time For Sailors’ Tom Waits seems to sing along and ‘Peace’ is a guitar instrumental full of Christmas bells. On this album you will find only original tracks on ” Angels We Have Heard On High ” after a song from 1983 with nice analog organ.” Oscar Smit – Gonzo Circus Dec. 22, 2014

One More Fine Tom Dyer Xmas Review!

January 2nd, 2015

“Tom Dyer – “Xmas – 30 Years in the Making”. I didn’t get a chance to write about this collection in depth this year, but I will make amends early next season. But, Tom Dyer’s collection of Christmas songs recorded here and there over 30 years is brilliant on the order of Substance W. “No Lou This Christmas” was recorded in 2013 as a tribute to Lou Reed, “Propane Santa” is one of the best true stories turned into song ever. Totally enjoyable.” der Bingle – Merry and Bright.

Tom Dyer Xmas Reviewed in Blurt!

January 2nd, 2015

“This accumulation of Christmas recordings, a compilation of original holiday-themed music Dyer’s done on an annual basis, is of the decidedly offbeat variety, but as songs like “No Lou This Xmas” and the reggae-worthy “Jingle Bell Ska” prove, this selection also works well as worthy collection of rockers. And while tracks like “It’s A White Mule Christmas,” “Propane Santa” and the Grinch-like “Christmas Time For Sailors” suggest Dyer’s got his tongue planted firmly in cheek, Xmas-30 Years in the Making is a holly jolly collection all round.” Lee Zimmerman – Blurt
