Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - s/t (2001)
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Baby 81 (2007)

I don\'t know diddly squat about this band or the fanbase. I can imagine every Vespa and neo-Norton rocker fancies them. Yeah, that ain\'t a pretty thought. Nevertheless, in my very limited exposure to indie music, they write consistently solid rock. The s/t made my Best of the Decade. One of those albums that works well outside; throw a frisbee around at an arboretum. In that small way, reminds me of The Who - Who\'s Next, Neil Young, or even Hawkwind. Like their voices and the bass/guitar tones a lot; can be a real sucker for that open distortion of hollow-body/Gibson ES335 sound. Nothing they\'ve done touches that first album (Baby 81 probably #2), but all their other albums are decent listens (when they aren\'t produced to sound too like quasi-Beatles). I don\'t run into that consistency all that often. I made the mistake of watching an interview on youtube; not the brightest bulbs. Ignorance is bliss.
You aren't interesting or clever when you write or speak in the lyrics of others. Rather, what are YOUR words?

Captain Beefheart-Clear Spot
A solid album, and a departure from more avant garde efforts such as Trout Mask Replica.

Touring through southeast Italy (heal of the boot) and listing to Furthur at MSG 2011-10-11. iPod works in the rental so I have the access to the full catalog. Also played Spring 1990 Capital Center. Played Further at Red Rocks 2012-09-21. Tomorrow we start heading back towards Rome. Thinking some Europe 72 should work.

Stayed at an Agritourisimo on Monday and they had a live jazz trio. Group was really good. Played them Furthur's Eyes of the World which has some good jazzy jams top bridge the language barrier.
