Bernie Krause - "Citadels of Mystery" (album title)
I found this quite at random because I thought the album title sounded cool in an auction listing for a LP. I didn't buy the LP but searched it up and now have the CD. Turns out the music lives up to the cool album title!


Rockwell - "Somebody's Watching Me" (album title)

i have a strange habit of preferring artists at a strange period in their life

i think everyone already knows John Farnham... at least 30 mil. people and the older citizens of Dagenham, home of the Ford Anglia.

TBH I'm not a huge fan of Farnham in his regular repertiore... however I love John during his brief stint with Little River Band... its a period he regrets... he feels he has some pressure from Glenn Wheatley, his manager to form a 'supergroup'

but I mean the results speak for themselves:



the entire Melbourne 1983 concert is great despite the VHS sound quality

some of the old LRB members love posting their excerpts too:

"Bad Suit - Bad Suit" (self-titled) — truly a hidden gem in a genre of "progressive funk-rock" (as they called themselves in one of few interviews back in 2008, when the disc released just to be forgotten..

Honestly, I've tried lurking in related genres, but haven't found much. The third track, "Inside Out", somewhat sounds like one of those alternative-rock pieces from "FlatOut 2", but leaves them all behind with its really progressive approach. And God, this bass...

The only way that actually helped me, was using Chosic "similar music finder": it reacted mostly to guitar, so that's how I found names of Shawn Lane, Steve Morse, "Solar Wind", "Tauk", Eric Gales and Don Mock.

P.S. I'm also in love with Chilean experimental rock-band "Akinetón Retard" - their whole discography is worth listening

I loved Lana all the way through the pandemic, but only recently came across her noise/dark ambient doppelgänger Lana Del Rabies:

Had to go back to the beginning to get some connection between the two. But it's a Bowie cover more so, actual Lana should do that one too, I think, it would be great.

And just as well we have low distortion gear to capture the delicate nuance, eh?
