Muddy Waters, "You Can't Lose What You Ain't Never Had"
For as much as I joke about not knowing shit about jazz (and I do not), I know even less about blues. I'm clueless! So, I'll just say that this comes from his 1978 album I'm Ready and get out of the way.
Noisem, "Voices in the Morgue"
Well, that's jarring. Noisem, a death/thrash act from Baltimore, got some positive press a while back, so I picked up this album. But I don't know, I think I'm pickier about this end of metal, and this doesn't do a whole lot for me.
Lightning Bolt, "Forcefield"
If I am going to listen to something played fast and noisy, I'm much more likely to put on something like this these days, not thrash metal. Hard to believe this is only two people making this racket! This comes from Lightning Bolt's second album, Ride The Skies, which was their first one that really started to put it together before the majestic Wonderful Rainbow.
Baptists, "Closed Ports"
Yeah, or this, fearsome hardcore from Baptists, out of Vancouver. There's a real noise rock edge to this band that clicks with me, probably in the vocals. At any rate, again, this is more my speed these days than thrash. I wonder what fast shit we're going to get next?
The Housemartins, "Flag Day"
Five Songs, folks!
