MP3: Download Khruangbin’s 1/11/18 Live @ KCRW Webcast

By Barbi Martinez

Among indie rock’s recent success stories, Houston world-music-tilting, psychedelic 3-piece Khruangbin has been one of the more unique rising stars. Featuring Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald Ray “DJ” Johnson Jr. on drums, their recent album, Con Todo El Mundo, has charmed the critics and filled the clubs – you can check out some of the tunes on the frankly brilliant record HERE and pick it up HERE as well – and it would seem that Cali’s venerable KCRW-FM is in their corner as well. Several months ago they did a live set broadcast over the airwaves and webwaves, and now the archivists at Big O zine have posted the performance (via Dime A Dozen) for free download, along with downloadable artwork:

MP3: Listen to Rosanne Cash/Ry Cooder’s 5/4/18 Johnny Cash Trib Show

By Uncle Blurt

Rosanne Cash had a musically-inclined father – you may have heard of him – and she’s frequently covered the gentleman’s songs in concert. More recently, she teamed with Ry Cooder to do an entire concert of those songs, and not necessarily the most iconic tunes. Now you can hear the show and nab it as a free download courtesy the archival mavens at Big O zine. The full tracklisting is below.

And yes, before you ask, our dear ol’ Uncle saw the Floyd many times back in the day…

By Uncle Blurt

I saw the Floyd many times back in the day, and I must say… whoops, we are being redundant with this post already. Let’s just point ourselves at the sky and tune in to Big O zine’s post of a sweet audience recording of drummer Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets outfit doing a saucerful o’ Floyd in London on May 23:

The full tracklisting for the dynamite show is below, and it probably needs no commentary from moi. How about vous? Okay, well, maybe we should discuss the presence of Spandau Ballet’s Gary Kemp on guitar – and nevermind the New Romantics, here’s the Psychedelics!

Listen to Seattle ’72 Fleetwood Mac Show w/Danny Kirwan (R.I.P.)

The former Fleetwood Mac guitarist, and veteran of 5 key albums, passed away on June 8 at the age of 68.

By Uncle Blurt

The music world was caught offguard this past weekend with news of Danny Kirwan’s passing – speaking as someone who got to see him perform in the Bob Welch/Christine McVie-era incarnation of the band, I am particularly saddened. Not many details have been released as of this writing, although it’s known that he had numerous chemical and alcohol issues over the years.

He was a helluva guitarist, though, and the good folks at Big O zine have posted a sharp soundboard recording of Fleetwood Mac performing in ’72:

MP3: Paramount Northwest Theater, Seattle, WA; March 10, 1972

It’s an even mix of Kirwan/Peter Green-period classics and more then-recent fare from the Welch/McVie era (Future Games, etc.). The tracklist is below – enjoy. You can listen to it online or download it for free, along with downloadable artwork.

MP3: Download Neil Young & Crazy Horse 5/6/18 Show

New iteration of the iconic group features Nils Lofgren standing in for Frank Sampedro on guitar.

By Uncle Blurt

Live Neil Young is always THE Neil Young to listen to – and Neil Young & Crazy Horse is the gold standard for Neil. Earlier this month he was doing a string of dates with the band (which at the moment comprises Nils Lofgren on guitar, Billy Talbot on bass, and Ralph Molina on drums) instead of touring with Promise of the Real, who are out on their own tour presently. And the ensemble positively smokes.

The good folks at Big O zine have posted the May 6 Bakersfield show for free download, including downloadable art, so check it out at their Neil page. The full tracklisting is below.

Incidentally, Neil recently disclosed in an interview that he has several unreleased albums he cut with Crazy Horse ready to be released, so keep your eyes and ears peeled…

MP3: Download Prophets of Rage 10/28/17 Show

Clear the way, yo.

By Uncle Blurt

One of the best albums of 2017 was the self-titled debut from Prophets of Rage, and the rock/hip-hop supergroup has steadily amassed a formidable reputation as a live act over the course of the last year and a half. Additional audio proof arrives via the band’s Voodoo Music festival appearance back in October, an HDTV webcase, which the archivists at Big O zine have kindly posted for free download along with printable artwork.

MP3: Prophets of Rage – Voodoo Music + Arts Experience. Wisner Stage, City Park Festival Grounds, New Orleans October 27, 2017

It’s a heavy-ass show, as befits the musicians who hail from the estimable ranks of Public Enemy, Cypress Hill, and Rage Against the Machine. Songs from all three groups’ back catalog are featured prominently in the setlist – a midset hip-hop medley of PE and Cypress material is one of the concert’s high points – which you can view, below.

Who else queued up to grab that limited edition Heartbreakers album on Record Store Day’s Black Friday Sale?

Well, if you did not score a copy, and eBay prices seem daunting, we’ve got a treat for you: a free download of the Heartbreakers – this time, it’s Walter Lure, Clem Burke, Mike Ness, and Glen Matlock, plus guest Jesse Malin – doing the LAMF and other gems associated with Johnny Thunders, at the Bowery Electric a few weeks ago, on Nov. 29.

By Uncle Blurt

No, she’s not the latest Marvel or DC super hero, although in that suggestive leather-and-stilettos outfit she sports onstage you’d be excused for thinking so. She can leap tall buildings with a single guitar, it’s…. St. Vincent! And Annie Clark’s show the other night in Detroit is now yours for the taking, courtesy Big O, which has posted MP3s of the HDTV webcast that wound up on Dime A Dozen. It comes with downloadable artwork.

MP3: St. Vincent – The Fillmore, Detroit, Michigan; November 14, 2017

She’s touring in support of her latest album, Masseduction, which one reviewer likends to “a futuristic, pop-horror acid trip.” Check out the full setlist, below – she does old faves in the first half of the show, then the new record in the second.

MP3: Download Tragically Hip FM Broadcast from ’89

 

By Uncle Blurt

The music world lost another titan this week, Gord Downie, frontman for Canada’s Tragically Hip, and passionate obituaries and testimonials quickly followed. The ever-diligent archivists over at the Big O zine have duly unearthed a fantastic-sounding deep-archive concert by the band, originally broadcast live over CFNY-FM 102.

MP3: Tragically Hip – Spectrum, Toronto, Ontario, Canada; November 30, 1989.

Apparently the 51-minute show has been bootlegged in the past, notably on the So Hip It Hurts CD, but this version is reportedly taken from a new, better-sounding source, an uncirculated off-air cassette master. Check out the tracklisting, below.

      Track 01

MP3: Listen to Mark Lindsay do Raiders, Other ’60s Songs

Still trying to find his kicks, ‘cos he’s HONGRY….

By Uncle Blurt

Raise your hand if you are a fellow unapologetic Paul Revere & the Raiders fan. I’ve still got all the original 45s and LPs, and I’ll put much of the band’s oeuvre up with any ’60s garage-rockin’ Nuggets head you’d care to name – the Raiders were just lucky enough to have hit after hit after hit.

Mark Lindsay was the voice of the band, of course, and the heartthrob frontman, sporting the kind of classy ponytail that makes all you man-bun-sporting millennials out there look like cavemen headed off your job at the rock quarry. Lindsay is still performing (Paul Revere also still takes a contemporary version of his Raiders out on the road), and the mighty Big O zine has posted a complete Pasadena concert from August clearly demonstrating what a great voice he still has. There’s a little cheese and schmaltz here and there, but in between the many Raiders classics and a handful of covers like “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling” and “I’m Not Your Steppin’ Stone,” the dude still delivers. Check it out at the Big O. Full tracklist is below.
