  1. Bad Religion is in my poorly calculated top 5 bands of all time. Love basically everything through The Process of Belief, but Suffer was them at the peak of their powers. Fuck Armageddon is juvenile punk greatness and Generator is a vicious tour de force from experienced masters, but Suffer strikes the balance between the 2. Just picked up a clean used copy a few weeks ago myself. I had Friday off and made myself a little time to visit my local record shop. Felt guilty spending coin all over the country and leaving out my hometown guy. So I picked up a few more: The Grateful Dead - Reckoning - even if you don't usually like the Dead, this is the record you need. Live show from San Francisco circa 82 or so. Exhorder - Slaughter in the Vatican reissue Clutch - Blast Tyrant
  2. MARTHE - Further in Evil (2023) - missed this one last year. Definitely FFO early Bathory, HellHammer, that early nasty black metal sound. Digging it. Further In Evil | MARTHE (bandcamp.com)
  3. Flying home today so lots of time to listen to tunes. Death - Individual Thought Patterns Death - The Sound of Perseverance Cynic - Focus
  4. Couple of 3 Thresher Altbiers at Arbor Brewing in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Washing down a couple chili dogs on national hot dog day. 4th trip to the Midwest in 2 years and I have to say digging the vibe. Of course all 4 trips have been in the summer, so I'm not exactly getting the full experience, but still. 75 and 10% humidity in July is my kind of treat for this Florida boy. I think it's 122 back home.
  5. Work travel = record store diving in a new place. Sealed vinyl: Oranssi Pazuzu - Muukalainen Puhuu The Sword - Age of Winter Used vinyl: McLaughlin, Lucia, di Meola - Passion Grace and Fire Haunter - Thrinodia If you're ever in Ann Arbor, Underground is the best shop regardless of what the Google tells you. Encore is a reasonable second.
  6. The early stuff is where it's at. When I'm in the mood for Floyd these days, it's Piper through Obscured.
  7. Malokarpatan - Krupinske ohne - I like this one a lot. Just the right amount of looseness, good guitar tone. Catchy riffs. On my way to the Northland of Michigan for the week, so this fits the vibe.
  8. Never got to see The Sword live, so I hope they are back on track and I get another shot. Those first 2 albums were "Fire" as the kidz say.
  9. ELO - Mr. Blue Sky Metal Church - S/T
  10. Pylon - Chomp (1983) - post-punk/new wave/jangle-pop from Athens, GA. Never heard of these guys before. FSIL (future son-in-law #2) turned me on to this album last night. Contemporaries with REM, The B52's, and that assorted explosion. These guys never made the big time but were apparently very influential on a lot of the bands that did.
  11. Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention - Overnight Sensation (RIP Tom Fowler)
  12. WFH day. Server roulette. Slough Feg - Atavism Slough Feg - New Organon Clutch - Elephant Riders Clutch - On Transnational Speedway League Sonic Demon - Veterans of the Psychic Wars The Sword - Warp Riders The Sword - Age of Winter Mastodon - Once More 'Round the Sun Mastodon - The Hunter Kyuss - Muchas Gracias Cult of Fire - Nirvana
  13. Casa de Navy is a solid repository for pre-90s vinyl and cold beer. Blind Guardian - Somewhere Far Beyond
  14. Send 'em my way. I'll put them to good use. NP: Blind Guardian - On Memories of a Time to Come Gates of Dawn - II II | Gates of Dawn (bandcamp.com) Dread Sovereign - All Hell's Martyrs ALL HELL'S MARTYRS | DREAD SOVEREIGN | Dread Sovereign (bandcamp.com) Aquilus - Arbor Arbor | Aquilus (bandcamp.com) Aquilus - Griseus Griseus | Aquilus (bandcamp.com) Aquilus - Bellum I Bellum I | Aquilus (bandcamp.com) Aquilus - Bellum II Bellum II | Aquilus (bandcamp.com) Excess Blood - Excess Blood Excess Blood | EXCESS BLOOD | Stucco (bandcamp.com)
  15. KXM - KXM (George Lynch of Dokken, Doug Pinnick of King's X, and Ray Luzier of Korn). Solid hard rock.
