Guru Guru – Electric Junk

April 13, 2007

I haven’t featured any relentless psychedelic jams for a while… so here is a marvellously gonzoid krautrock effort… Guru Guru and Electric Junk from 1971. Marvellous.

Neil Young‘s has unveiled the tracklisting for his forthcoming live album ‘Live At Massey Hall’.

The album, set to hit the shops on March 12, was recorded in Toronto in 1971 and features a DVD which features footage of the show minus three tracks.

Young said: "This is the album that should have come out between ‘After The Gold Rush’ and ‘Harvest’." The set is a great mix of Harvest tracks as well as a couple of killers from his days in Buffalo Springfield.

The much talked about ‘Archives Volume 1’ an 8CD/2 DVD boxset chronicling Young’s career between 1963 and 1972, will be released in the autumn. Read over for the tracklisting.

The Zombies show the garage punkers how its really done

September 25, 2006

Zombies_1
Steve Van Zandt’s, or Little Steven as he’s more commonly known, has been running his ‘Underground Garage’ on Sirius Satellite Radio and weekly program on FM radio. A fan of all things garage, psych and rock and roll, it would seem that he believes in songs hitting the 3-minute-or-under mark and no ballads.

Notable exceptions are allowed in the form of a live set from a re-united Zombies, who topped the "Rolling Rock and Roll Show" – Little Steven’s latest touring version
of his radio shows – which pulled into New York’s Irving Plaza last week.

MySpace Artist of the day – Goldoolins

August 22, 2006

GoldoolinsIsrael might not be known for acid folk groups, but tucked away in The Negev Desert is the wonderful sounds of the Goldoolins. The ‘doolins have dropped right out of 1968 with a sound so fully formed and perfect that you’d be forgiven for thinking that you’d stumbled across a lost SanFran folk rock masterpiece produced by Curt Boettcher.

The ‘Ocean Song’ is the Goldoolins masterpiece. Harpsicord, picked guitars and Autoharps nestle underneath flung lyrics before the whole thing turns on its head into backward psychedelics! ‘Sheva Shanim 7 Years’ is sung in the group’s native tongue, and songs like an exotic mix of Os Mutantes and the Incredible String Band. It is, without exaggeration, one of the finest pieces of music I’ve ever heard. If this was 40 years old, people would be paying stupid amounts of money to get their hands on a copy. Essential.

To hear the Goldoolins, please follow this link to their MySpace site.

I Wanna Be Your Dog – live and direct!

May 15, 2006

Iggy Pop is a massive leap in the invention of punk. No questions.

Along with the Stooges, Iggy made the world think that the stage wasn’t just a place for poe faced musos. Once there was a barrier. Iggy kicked and spat until it was obliterated.

Shiny Media launches Scrumbag

February 2, 2006

Scrumtop_1
We are mainly footy fans here at Shiny Media but we do enjoy the odd bit of international Rugby Union. So forgive us for getting a tad excited about the launch of Shiny Media’s latest blog – that’s 17 if you are counting – Scrumbag.

Dedicated to the favourite sport of at least half of the SM team – Rugby Union – Scrumbag is a sharp, pointed and often very witty look at men, their odd shaped balls and the culture that surrounds them.

But in true Shiny tradition it is written by a largely female team with ace blogger Toni Kelly, a rugby fanatic for many years, at the helm.

Launched days before the start of the annual Six Nations competition Scrumbag will go where traditional rugby sites don’t dare venture offering forthright and controversial opinions on the game’s key issues. Toni and her team will also keep Union fans up to speed on where they can watch the games – both live and on TV – what the latest gossip on the players is as well as in true Shiny style offering the odd Rugger fashion tip and spotting the best Rugby bargains on eBay.
