    kyrre laastad wanted everyone in rec.music.makers.percussion to know that

    duh! I guess I just don't pay much attention to track names :)a
    (plus I didn't want to hunt through 8 or so cd's to find which one it
    was on; it's easier to ask!) but that is an incredible song. very
    different from the other one he listed, though.

    > autechre - lp5 - so inspiring to listen to from a drummers perspective


    listen to "Surripere" (track 5) of Draft 7.30 for probably the weirdest
    (but coolest) drum programming I've ever heard.

    BTW, I've read that all of lp5 was done with generative sequencing tools.
    they wrote the software and the data set for the sequences, but not
    the sequences themselves (in the classical sense). they did, of course,
    set up the sounds accordingly. however, I'm not sure if this is true; I
    can believe it of "Confield" easily, but not lp5 so much.

    John Surman played in our Uni concert series last year with a lute
    and a singer (the singer was John Potter, one of my lecturers).
    They were doing some sort of a weird cross-over between early music
    and jazz. Some of it was quite cool, if a little weird.

    Super Furry Animals - Mwng (very classy, all the singing is in
    Welsh which is a bit odd but it really works).
    The Flaming Lips - The Soft Bulletin
    Massive Attack - Protection (I love that lo-fi drum sound).
    Bare Naked Ladies - Gordon
    The Eels - Daisies of the Galaxy
    The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds (we recently decided that this has some
    of the best backing vocals ever)

    >atomic - boom boom - norwegian/swedish accoustic jazz band

    hey kyrre, wanna start up a norwegian/finnish percussion duo??? ;)
    there seems to be a big number of norwegian/swedish & finnish/swedish
    collaborations up here in scandinavia - but after the edward vesala/ jon
    christensen duet a good percussive (or other instrument) link between
    finland & norway seems to be missing. why bother with the swedes between,
    lets have a band. we could add up more 'virtual' members along the way... -
    and give our first concert at the crossing of the three realms in halti,
    lappland in an not-yet given time in the future...
    whaddy u say, shall we give our mullets a spin???

    ouch. now i got all nervous and stuff. anyways, i love to play free-form
    with other drummers. it`s not something i have done often, but the very few
    times i`ve tried it, it has been an really incredible kick. i`d love to have
    a percussion impro duo. but i love all impro. to me, it is the ultimate way
    to make music, because it forces you to listen, if you don`t then you`re
    fucked. since we`re both a bit left of right, we could make our own
    scandinavian version of charlie haden`s liberation music orchestra. that`d
    be nice! all percussion, of course ;)

    have you heard "scorch trio" with raoul björkheim (iirc), ingebright
    haaker-flaten and paal nilssen-love? norwegian/finnish hardcore metal-impro
    with electric guitar, el-bass and some really deep and grooving drums?
    that`s what it`s all about. playing your farkin heart out.

    anyways; it`s late and i`ve been drinking too much. good night, y`all.

    and peace. you know, as in "don`t kill people",

    So was I TJ. I have great taste in music! As long as you forget the fact
    that I am listening to Saliva (for an audition)...... :)

    As for the rest....

    POD - Excellent rock drumming.
    System of a Down - Very strong drummer. I see an interesting approach in his
    playing.
    Phil Collins - He is a very good drummer and tends to find the pocket. Have
    to admit that I am finally understanding what some people have always said
    about Phil. Very tasteful.

    Hmmm, fair enough; I can't stand their songs. The genre, really.

    I like SOAD. Shame about the drum sounds though.

    I like his drumming. Not too keen on his work as a solo artist.

    The CD that doesn't come out of my CD player is a new CD of Eli
    Degibri, an Israeli tenor sax player who is in the NY jazz scene and
    already toured with Herbie Hancock and Al Foster, and now plays in the
    Mingus Dynasty Big Band.
    The CD is with Kurt Rosenwinkel, Aaron Goldberg, Ben Street and Jeff
    Ballard. Except 2 standarts ("Cherokee" and "All the things you are")
    all tunes are Eli's originals and are sooooooooo beautilful. The CD is
    under the "Fresh Sound" label.

    Except for that CD, I also listen now to Peter Bernstein's "Earth
    Tones" with Larry Goldings and Bill Stewart, on Criss Cross label.
    MAGNIFICENT CD.

    peter brötzman kicks ass. he could blow the head off mike tyson. no, i
    haven`t heard anything else of raoul, is it good?
    i`m currently listening to tom waits` frank`s wild years, that is one
    seriously beautiful record.

    > so its a band? what should the name be? ;)


    hmm, since we`re jazzers, we should go for ensemble instead of band ;)
    but it ougtha be something with axis of evil in it. we could start a
    saxophone quartet and call it saxes of evil. . ;)

    Ditto.

    After an approximately four year period where I was intensely
    into an avant-garde instrumental jazz phase, I've had a strong
    desire all summer for 1960s American psychedelic music with
    vocals, and these albums on Rhino have come in very handy:

    Anthology (Johnny Rivers)
    Anthology (The Lovin' Spoonful)
    Anthology (The Rascals)
    Anthology (Tommy James And The Shondells)
    Dark Sides: The Best Of (The Shadows Of Knight)
    Electromagnetic Steamboat (The Fugs)
    Inner Views (Sonny Bono)
    Legacy: The Absolute Best (The Doors)
    Light And Heavy: The Best Of (Iron Butterfly)
    Louder Than God: The Best Of (Blue Cheer)
    Love Story (Love)
    Morning Glory: The Anthology (Tim Buckley)
    Music Box (The Monkees)
    Nuggets: Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era
    Psychedelic Sundae: The Best Of (Vanilla Fudge)
    Sons Of Mercury (Quicksilver Messenger Service)
    The Best Of (Chocolate Watch Band)

    The Best Of (The Standells)
    The Big Bang: The Best Of (The MC5)

    I was really heavy into Psychedelic music from the 60s a couple of
    years ago.

    Check out Frank Zappas We're only in it for the money. Actually
    check out the version he did were he rerecorded the rythm section. He
    dubbed in Chad Wackerman and Athur Barrow respectively. While you are
    at it check out the original mix with the original line up. Very
    weird stuff.

    Check out the band Touch. They had one album from 1968 and it is very
    cool. Hendrix dug it.

    I like alot of the Turtles stuff as well. They have quite a few
    obscure psychedelic numbers. get their best of CD

    The old 60s Pink Floyd stuff is really cool. If you havent heard
    "Piper at the gates of Dawn" I highly recommend this very strange
    album.

    The band the Lemon Pipers had some cool bubble gum psychedelic music.
    Find their greatest hits if you don't have it already.

    Of course I have some Byrds as well. I always liked their sound.
    "Eight miles high" is a favorite of mine.

    I just love that 60s psychedelic music.

    Mike
