Re: What are you listening to right now?#222574 12 months agoBreakfast with the Beatles. It's an FM radio show that they always play on Sunday morning at this time. I'm probably showing my age here, but I just luv the Mop Tops!

Probably my favorite recording from 1970 (man, that's even a difficult thing to type). This was a special night
Dark Star - top-5 Dark Star - from lunar to nasty to smooth to chaos to rigid. It's everything music can be, and if anyone can hear us in space, I hope they hear this.
NFA> Darkness Jam> NFA - I cannot begin to convey how beautiful and furious this is. I don't think I've ever listened to this and not got goosebumps. Jerry is...I don't know what he is, but he's indeed something else. From 6:03-6:13, maybe the finest ten seconds in their nearly 30 year existence (yeah, I'm saying it, and really, you can extend this extraordinary segment back to 5:41). At 6:13, they EXPLODE into China Cat with a power chord. Phil paints every wall and every angle...over and over again until it's all deep space black. More power chords at 7:14. So, for around four full minutes, from 3:30-7:30, we're treated to perfection and flawless chaos.
I cannot play this loud enough. No one can. It's cheesy, but it's the truth for me. When I think of music I want to play louder than a stereo can rightly play, this is it.
