Sunday Diggin is a weekly review of some gems we got our hands on during the week on our cruises to the record stores or from our own crates. Always making sure our neighbors enjoy it with us, after all there’s only one way to play these: LOUD.
On this week’s lucky finds;
The Cult Of Dom Keller - The Cult Of Dom Keller
I should start by saying this has a hand screen printed cover, an electric blue vinyl and theres only 500 copies of these babies. But the reaction of his acetate with the needle is far more mind blowing.
The Cult Of Dom Keller, is for sure one of the best bands on this amazing rise of psych rock music (shout out to The Reverberation Appreciation Society for putting out so many of these amazing artists); these high tones and reverbs will make you feel like you’re being reborn out of a colored two headed rhino.
2 – Eyes
3 – Worlds
5 – Black Pullet Blues
8 – This Is How It Feels To Live Your Life Dead
Bad Brains - Rock For Light
The year was 1983, and the world was struck with a lightning called Bad Brains and this album carries the dynamite. How can a hardcore be so musically advanced? I mean, Black Flag, Adolescents, they are all bands that will make you jump out of a chair and start runnin around even if you’re in a fuckin hospital. But Bad Brains? These four cats created something that you can bump to any jazz snob and they will appreciate.
Anyways, for me Rock For Light has the best of all the worlds inside of the band, the rawness, the righteousness and the harmony. Even on the faster tracks you can hear every single instrument so clear and good, who else has that chemistry? hmm Led Zep… Rock For Light mother fuckers
1 – Coptic Times
2 – Attitude
14 – I And I Survive
16 – Rock For Light
Fat Mattress – Fat Mattress
Let me not start by the fact that this was The Jimi Hendrix Experience bassist band (wait, yea Neil Laidon had the amount of love, feel, and acid in his blood to play along with Hendrix) because Fat Mattress is far more than that, him and band mates for sure had the same drive to put their band a mark on Rock N Roll history with some damnnn good original, psychedelic and folk sounds.
Tracks like Magic Forest (beautifully sampled by Guts on Take A Look Around You) and How Can I Live? will bring you that awesome 70′s rock haze to your life.
From beginning to the end this album is pure joy.
3 – Bright New Way
6 – Magic Forest
10 – How Can I Live?
