Line 1: Line 1:
 +====== Albums and Concerts ======
 +
 +[[Laura Cantrell]]
 +
 +    * //[[Not The Trembling Kind]]// – Just a damned fine country record. They don't make them like this anymore, except they do, since this is only a couple years old, and she's got a brand new one coming soon, too.
 +
 +[[The Ditty Bops]]
 +
 +    * //[[The Ditty Bops (CD)]]// – Their debut record is the best record of 2004.
 +
 +[[Flying Lizards]]
 +
 +    * //[[Fourth Wall]]// – How do you follow up a record that's basically a prank on the record buying public? I don't know, either.
 +
 +[[Mitchell Froom]]
 +
 +    * //[[The Key of Cool]]// – How about this one? Mitchell Froom'​s soundtrack to damned near the only halfway intelligent porn flick in history, //[[Cafe Flesh]]//.
 +
 +[[M]]: Not the French guy who did the music for //[[The Triplets of Belleville]]//,​ but Robin Scott. (That other M is pretty cool, too, but I'm still bitter that he stole his name…er, letter.) M's most famous for the song "Pop Muzik",​ but he put out 3 albums.
 +
 +    * //[[The Official Secrets Act]]// – the second album, which didn't do so hot. There seems to be a law that every record store has to have this LP for a couple bucks.
 +
 +[[Sun Ra]]
 +
 +    * //[[Sun Ra Visits Planet Earth]]// – An essential introduction to the Man From Saturn. Make this your first Sun Ra disc!
 +
 +[[U2]]: Yeah, I know – they'​re the biggest band in the world and they "sold out" back when they went mainstream with [[The Unforgettable Fire]]. Damn, I wish I could sell out the way these guys have!
 +
 +    * //[[Pop]]// – overhyped, overmerchandised,​ and you never hear it on the radio because everyone calls it U2's "​worst"​ album. I still love it, and I think it's an interesting piece of musical satire.
 +
 +[[Roger Waters]]: Pink Floyd and After Floyd, here is the man who made angst cool and whining about society into an art form.
 +
 +    * //[[Amused to Death]]// – Waters'​ solo masterpiece,​ ranking alongside //[[The Wall]]//
 +
 +[[Neil Young]]
 +
 +    * //​[[Trans]]//​ – Neil Young'​s Electronic Album
 +
 +Individual Songs:
 +
 +    * "​[[Flowers On The Wall]]"​ - [[The Statler Brothers]]
 +    * "[[I Wonder What She's Doin' Tonight]]"​ - [[Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart]]
