the godfather and guru of home recording, r. stevie moore began his assault on the record industry in 1967 when he first began laying down tracks on a reel to reel tape deck in his basement. his vision has been untainted ever since, producing >25 albums with help from indie labels and countless others on his own. claiming that the breadth of his best recordings were done in the 70's, before he started releasing the home recordings, there may never be an actual measurement of his body of work. melding together almost any genre you can name, r. stevie moore has also established a vast working knowledge and grasp of (un)pop music. heart wrenching truthfulness made my doggie stop wagging her tail, but the playful crafting of the melodies takes the edge off and the poignancy somehow becomes a humorous visit to the zany upstairs neighbor's apartment. he also did his time djing for wfmu, which just seems right.

i was going to expand this out into a few entries but decided to kill a flock of birds with simulated drowning techniques approved by empires of hog farmers.
gary war is the shit.
blank dogs needs a haircut.
together, they are roman soldiers!
no joke, while doing some surfins to blog dog on my dog blank dogs, i came across the beginnings of the end. this makes me happy. i am not certain if roman soldiers has anything available that is for purchasing, but you can hit up the myspace page here and be happy, and then frustrated just like me. if any of you know where i can get another hit of that good medicine, please, for the love of gawd, send me links.
as far as gary war goes, this low fi psych guru from brooklyn is a man of mystery it seems. i couldn't find any interviews, just album reviews. music that you can enjoy while on a quiet eve when you are sitting back and enjoying a nice, tall, ice cold glass of robotussin. how great is this? he posts recordings on a blog called the FUNZONE.
blank dogs got that lofi psych edge, but falls steadily into the darker matter. shoe gazer-esk with a hint of the industrial of yore, hypnotic and dream like. here is a good interview and hear is where you can find some of your very own.
needless to i love them both, and hey, if you are ever in brooklyn, there is a good chance you can check out a show.

hi peeps, it's been awhile, sorry to leave you hanging with the shadow of my ghost for so long. this should make up for it. happy fucking birthday.
mind bending bonker gogo ride in the mouth of the moths flooding the faucet in the sink of the abandoned lean to, this should be a nice puxxle for the next year, but if you need a guide, i shall be referencing the archive often. remember to show your support for the artists by going to their shows and buying their vinyl, ok?
i will be following up soon with some more of my likes and licks later, good night!
