top secret - it ain't over yet (toronto 1993)

Posted: 03 Jan 2009 10:00 AM CST

Here's an underground tape from Toronto, Canada. The hip hop scene north of the border is prolific and diverse. Some of the production on this is sick, but the last 2 tracks should have been left out. The tape cover says 1992 on one side, and 1993 on the other so I don't know which one is right. Produced by Ryan Lord. If any Canadian heads out there can shed more light on this tape or any other production by Ryan Lord I'd love to know!

Here's a link and the tracklist--

01. (00:04:38) top secret - listen to yourself
02. (00:02:17) top secret - the rave
03. (00:04:52) top secret - it's the way ya like it
04. (00:01:25) top secret - people say
05. (00:05:37) top secret - it ain't over
06. (00:04:10) top secret - go
07. (00:01:21) top secret - cross
08. (00:04:10) top secret - don't make me mad son
09. (00:01:10) top secret - basic rules
10. (00:05:19) top secret - eskimo
11. (00:01:10) top secret - now that we..
12. (00:04:21) top secret - stupid
13. (00:03:29) top secret - baby
14. (00:03:13) top secret - scared

Hope y'all enjoy this one! If you want more north of the border posts just ask and i'll be glad to oblige.




Donovan - There Are No Roads (Open Road Sessions) 1970

Posted: 03 Jan 2009 01:48 PM CST

"There Are No Roads" by the masterful 'Donovan' are the lost recordings that went on to what we probably know and aspire to acquire as the "Open Road Sessions". This is a truly wonderful recording containing some beautiful rarities. This album is wrapped and a low bit-rate, but there is no loss in quality after some 38 years. And this goes out to Christo O'Gordo who had this album penned as his

Download: Coldplay - X&Y
Part 1, Part 2
Release Date
June 7, 2005
Product Description,
Things have gone ridiculously well for Coldplay since 2002's A Rush of Blood to the Head. The group's global album sales have soared past the 10-million mark, putting it in the same stratosphere as megabands U2 and the Dave Matthews Band. People have offered up their bank accounts, cars, and even bodies for tickets to its shows. And, in a interesting twist, frontman Chris Martin married Gwyneth Paltrow and set the tabloid world aflame. Funny thing, then, that the British quartet's much-anticipated third album, X&Y, is all about staying grounded. In the powerful opener, "Square One," the singer insists people are fundamentally the same no matter what their stature: "You just want... Somebody listening to what you say," he sings. On "Fix You," Martin grapples with imperfection and missed opportunity: "When you love someone but it goes to waste... Could it be worse?" Meanwhile, the vibrant single, "Speed of Sound," is all about reconnecting with the spirit and soul in the face of the paparazzi's flashbulbs. Musically, the band has never sounded more adventurous, referencing everyone from Kraftwerk ("Talk") to the Pogues ("Swallowed in the Sea"), all the while sweeping aside those Radiohead-lite comparisons to embrace a massive, moving sound that makes simplicity seem sublime. --Aidin Vaziri

Whatever happened to: The Cramps?

Posted: 02 Jan 2009 11:07 PM CST

This week we go back for one of the most theatrical bands of the punk era.  

The Cramps melded punk rock and rockabilly music with a campy creepiness that made them one of the most distinctive bands of their time.  During a time when most American punk acts were playing monotone songs as fast as they could, Cramps founders Lux Interior and Poison Ivy definitely made their band stand out.

They were going strong even as a new millenium rolled over.  But I haven't heard much from them in a few years.

So this week: whatever happened to The Cramps?

The Sumner Brothers

Posted: 03 Jan 2009 05:51 AM CST

I’m going to start off this year with an interview from a band I wrote about here last year, The Sumner Brothers. Last year I wrote about In The Garage a week or two before the release of their self-titled album. Although the latter album has some of the tracks from the afore mentioned In The Garage, Pain, Both back and My Words being three, apart from a couple of A.P Carter tracks and an old traditional song called Yeah Blue, they have taken away the covers their music has obvious nods towards and have added more of their own compositions, Say You’ll always be mine and Two Hands being two but an obvious stand out track being Ticket to ride, A song I could imagine the late Johnny Cash singing on his last album just before he sadly died.

As i’ve said in the past I just love the honesty these guys show in their songwriting and that’s all backed up by the emotion you can hear in their voices. With another release to come in 2009 this band I’m sure are going to mature into one of the best country/folk/roots bands around, If they are not already.

So, If you have received a cdbaby voucher for Christmas or you are taking back a cd you already have, You will not go far wrong by picking up this album, infact why not buy both at the same time and play them back to back while you read through this interview that Brian has kindly granted YCD?

YCD - You’ve now released In the garage and your self-titled album,  How
were they received?

SB - they were both well received……we were a little surprised that our
first album “in the garage” was as well received as it was……. we
recorded that one in our garage with an 8 track and an assortment of
old beat up 58’s ……. we plan on making a string of “in the garage”
albums but i doubt they will ever sound like that one.

YCD - You seem very much in touch with the traditions of country music,
is this the kind of music you grew up with?

SB - not exactly……we’re suburban kids …we ended up listening to
everything……literally …hip-hop, rock, blues, jazz, classical, name it…….we really took to country music when Johnny Cash
started making his “American” recordings…..i think we adopted
country music for ourselves because of the simplicity of it…….we
liked the idea that you could write a song in the afternoon and
perform it that night……when it was still fresh….and that country
music is a lyrics first form…..since then we’ve met a ton of people
performing this kinda music and really started to learn the history of
it from the inside out…..from the storytellers themselves.

YCD - What do you think you would be doing if you weren’t making music?

SB - working a day job and trying to start a business…..i’ve had a couple
ideas over the years……but music takes all my time now……and i’m
happy with that

YCD - When a journalist told Townes Van Zandt that his songs were sad his
reply was that although some were, most were full of hopelessness. I
get the same feeling when listening to some of your songs like Pain or
Both Back, the latter I know is about wanting your grandfathers back
with you. Writing that, was it some kind of healing process?

SB - no…’s hard to explain …i’ve never found writing to help with
the healing process…..if anything ..eveytime i perform these songs
it hurts… it’s kinda like digging at old wounds….but the only
other option is to forget entirely and that doesn’t seem right
either… best friend passed away about a year ago and i never
wrote about it…….it wouldn’t help me to heal…..i’m better off
just not thinking about it.

there’s a difference between Townes outlook in his songs and ours.
Townes was depressed……and his sense of hopelessness came from there
My Brother and I love life……and despise death……and that is
where our sense of hopelessness comes from

YCD - Ok, first non- musical question. What did you think last time you
looked in the mirror?

SB - can’t remember ……something along the lines of ..women are %&^$%$^ nuts

YCD - If there is one song you could steal and claim it as your own for
ever which one would you choose and why?

SB - o holy night
it’s that time of year and that’s my favorite Christmas
song…….imagine the competition?

YCD - Given the amount of emotion and honesty in your music, is it
important to you that you write songs separately as I notice there
doesn’t seem to be any co-written tracks on either album?

SB -I think it would be difficult. …..we both want to say what we want
to say when we want to say it….we’re both stubborn and wouldn’t take
to well to someone telling us it doesn’t sound right….or it might be
offensive….etc. besides…………..
we spend so much time together working on the business of the band
….arranging songs and rehearsing…..drinking on weekends…. that i
think we’d be stretching it trying to put the time into trying to

write songs together….eventually………it’d be fun to try

YCD - What’s your best musical experience so far and why?

SB - We played a show in Portland a couple years back …..we were setting
up and couldn’t get the p.a. to work properly ….it started squealing
like mad and randomly….people were getting angry…shouting things
and eventually leaving…….we decided to forgo the p.a. and busk the
room……we just yelled out the tunes……it was a big room but my
brother and i have  loud voices …….by the time we had finished
everyone had come back from the adjacent room……i think everyone
got a kick out of it.

in reality it’s probably just drinking baileys and coffee then moving
on to beer …..working on new songs in the garage with my brother
i never get tired of it

YCD - What’s currently rocking your stereo?

SB - Phil Saylor Wisor - “Since Jimmy Died”
we’ve toured with Phil a couple times
he plays with the same conviction and passion whether he’s playing for
2 people or a hundred.

YCD -  You seem like a very close family unit, have you ever written a
song about each other, either privately or openly?

SB - can’t speak for my brother …..i haven’t ……it could be
dangerous….we’re both too honest…..and we both have faults

YCD - Another silly one now. If you could play any part in any movie
past or present who or what would it be and why?

SB - you should have asked me “if i had to”. …….i wouldn’t want any
part of any movie…..acting is hard work…i’ve had one
experience…….i remember being an extra once when i was a
kid… was a rain scene……the only way rain shows up on camera
apparently is if it’s raining un-realistically hard…….and
cold?……but everyone had to be dry at the beginning of the scene
and soaking wet at the end of the scene…. we had to change our
clothes everytime they had to re- shoot it ….they shot it all day
….for like 8 hours….it was torture.

YCD - What are your hopes and fears for you in the future, musically?

SB - I want to be able to play music and raise a family
that’s it. My fear would be that i wouldn’t be able to do that…..we’ve been
told that it’s almost impossible…. we don’t believe it.

YCD -There is a video on your myspace page of a song called I don’t care if there’s a
which when I first heard I cried. It’s not on either album, any
particular reason for that?

SB - that song is almost universally misinterpreted………most people
think it’s an anti-war song……or an anti-american song….or
something along those lines…….it’s not…….the song is about a
very specific situation…..something that actually happened …..that
song.. for me takes place in a vacuum….i wasn’t trying to comment on
the bigger picture ..i wasn’t taking any of that into
account……….having said all that…… brother and i have
hundreds of songs….when we go to make an album we record tons of
them….then we see which ones are working ……and which ones are
working in the context of the album…..i’m sure we will release it in
one form or another eventually

YCD - And Finally, what’s your plans for this year?

SB - we’re working on a new album……..we’re more than excited about
it……we holed up in a cabin for this one like we did for the
last……so it’s got that sound…. that intangible which really
helps to tie an album together…….i don’t think you can record the
sound of late nights…..booze….friendship……loneliness
etc……without actually being there……not that this is the only
way to record an album ….we’re just happy with it for now.

Thankyou very much for granting YCD this interview and we all wish you all success for 2009 and many years beyond.

As you can already grab Pain from my first post here, with their permission I am just uploading one track here, Just go buy the fucking album here will you’s, these guys are trying to make a living here !!

Soul legend JAMES BROWN will be honoured with his own New York City street behind the famed Apollo Theater.

Brown died of heart failure on Christmas Day in 2006 at the age of 73.
