ANTHRAX

Tuesday, January 21st 2014

 

I’ve never really listened to Anthrax before the release of 2011’s “Worship Music” album.  James had the rest of the previous albums.  I go back to the older stuff now to figure out the journey to the recent release, which is quite good for any metal fan!  My favourite track from the album, yes I’m very picky about the music I listen to!

Thanks for the suggestion metal JBl’s aka Justin Bender!  I REALLY enjoy this album!  I hope the rest of the previous albums don’t sound like 80s metal, I strongly loathe that stuff.  I throw Guns n’ Roses and Metallica in that group. Pantera is good though!

 

I guess it’s a good thing my 80gb iPod died and I have a 160gb iPod with 79.3gb left on it!  My list of stuff is still quite long!  More of this and that to purchase from iTunes.  I still haven’t done all of our 600+ CDs.  Probably half of them.

 

My day has been some what of a gong show!  Brewster has been driving me crazy!  He’s been pawing at our front door, whining to go out on to the balcony at the back door, hiding at my feet under the computer desk since Kim got home, etc.  I go to pick him up and he runs away until I corner him, then shaking like a leaf if either one of us gets a hold of him.

 

I put his collar on him and he calmed down and had a nap for a while in his dog bed!  I don’t think he’s used to the place yet.  All day we hear workers finishing other suites and constructing other buildings across from us.  I feel sorry for him with all of this change and noise, but it’s not like it just started today?

AUF DER MAUR

Saturday, October 19th

 

Yes, the bass player from “Hole” and then “Smashing Pumpkins”.  She released one solo album, on my iPod too, then disappeared completely.  She’s from the province Québec, not sure what city though.  I got to see her live at the Distrikt here in Regina.  The show was Limblifter (Regina area), Auf Der Maur and then Matthew Good(B.C.) as a solo artist.  Great show to see and hear!  I never expected to see her live anywhere near Regina. Mitch and I saw one video on Much Music and I was hooked.  It was completely different than anything I’d ever heard.  Quite a few members of Queens of the Stone Age and A Perfect Circle played on that album.  This was the only video I saw.

Apparently Limblifter is back together now with a slew of Canadian bands from the ’90s.  Here’s some Limblifter to jog your memory.

Here’s the Matthew Good Band at it’s best.  Yes, Dave, Rob, Rydell and I played this (the first rock band I/we were in).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnQ-Ixnqpe8   This has to be among their biggest hits.  Matthew Good as a solo artist is pretty hit and miss for me.  Here’s a hit for me in his solo career.

Best guitarist that I put on my facebook timeline what was I thinking?  I only know about local artists and very famous artists.  I forgot 2 other local guitarists that are up there among the guitar Gods.  Daniel Nargang and Justin Bender and anyone else that has been in Into Eternity.  I don’t like classifying metal music as Black, Death, Thrash, Power, Progressive, etc.  It’s music and you either like a band or not, simple as that.
