Display Name History

  1. Parliament - Tear The Roof Off 1974 - 1980 -- picked up this 2xCD collection today from a West End op shop for $1. In the old style fatbox with booklet. Noice. Make my funk the P-funk. --Geoff
  2. Nightwind - The Sound Of Silence -- so the artist name sounds like a flatulent condition (which is probably why it got changed to NightSkies later) but this release is all processed guitar and sounds not unlike some Frippertronics. "Name Yer Price" download at Bandcamp. --Geoff
  3. The foyer of the Riparian Plaza building in Brisbane last night: \ Nikon D750 camera + Nikkor 20mm lens @ f/16, ISO 100, 15 seconds. --Geoff
  4. Triosk - The Headlight Serenade -- found this CD from an Aussie jazz trio in the $1 bin. Channeling The Necks in sound, except for the last track, which is a random sound collage. --Geoff
  5. A pelican at the lake yesterday afternoon: His Beak Holds More Than His Belly Can Nikon D750 camera + Sigma 150-500mm lens @ f6/3, ISO 2200, 1/2000 sec, cropped. --Geoff
  6. Philip Wilkerson - Highlands -- nice floaty stuff. "Name Yer Price" download from Bandcamp. --Geoff
  7. Glorie - Glorie -- post-rock with a difference, including vibes and cello prominently in the mix. Noice. "Name Yer Price" download from Bandcamp. Format: MP3/FLAC/WAV --Geoff
  8. Ctraltu - Selection -- what it says: a selection of tracks from a jazz outfit with over 40 releases. "Name Yer Price" download from Bandcamp. Format: MP3/FLAC/WAV --Geoff
  9. I saw a sign on the side of the road this morning for a record fair on the 29th and was just about to google it when I checked SNA first. Sorted! --Geoff
  10. Altus - The Sidereal Cycle -- originally released as 4 separate albums, but compiled here into 4 long-form ambient pieces. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. 1. Cygnus 51:28 2. Andromeda 54:50 3. Orion 55:28 4. Virgo 56:53 Format: MP3/FLAC/WAV --Geoff
  11. Paul Nice - Do You Pick Your Feet In Poughkeepsie? -- a DJ mix of soundtracks from "gritty" 1970s movies and TV shows (French Connection, Dirty Harry, S.W.A.T., Enter The Dragon, etc). Suitably funky with some dialogue sprinkled throughout. Kinda sounds like a Tarantino sountrack to a porn movie at times. Even Inspector Clouseau makes an appearance. "Name Yer Price" lossless download at Bandcamp. Format: MP3/FLAC/WAV --Geoff
  12. One of the albums showed up in my feed the other day; probably from following the same dude. --Geoff
  13. Great minds, etc. I recommend this compilation (and volume 2) on the Currently Spinning thread just the other night. --Geoff
  14. Huzzah for the local team or sporting franchise! Qld won the sportsball because NSW just didn't sports hard enough. All of the QLD players were sportsing at 110%. Can't say the same for the interlopers. --Geoff
  15. Boo hiss! No Brisbane show. Luckily I saw 'em a couple years back. --Geoff
