Don't need new music until this is organized.

I’ve been on a huge Redd Kross kick.  This is one of the greatest TV performances I’ve ever seen.  

Keep on chooglin!

My friend Johnny turned me on to this over the weekend Wow!
 

Guitarist Ripley Johnson, also of Moon Duo fame.  The following excerpt explaining how he tried to get this sound speaks to me. haha.

Recorded primarily at his home in Portland and mixed by Cooper Crain (Bitchin’ Bajas, Cave), the songs on Earth Trip make deft use of space through their lean arrangements, guest Barry Walker’s shimmering pedal steel, open and elongated guitar melodies, and upfront and intimate vocals. Johnson describes the arrangements this way; “I was trying to capture that feeling when you take psychedelics and they just start coming on - maybe objects start buzzing in the edges of your vision, you start seeing slight trails, maybe the characteristics of sound change subtly. But you’re not fully tripping yet. Cooper got the idea right away and his mix really captures that feeling.” Johnson’s lithe guitar playing treads an equally fine line between country and cosmic, melodies blooming into long reverb trails and solos evocative of radiant summer warmth.

Shawn Lane's stuff is hit or miss for me, but ran across this recently, which is pretty damn ccol;

 

The album I watched Charlie Hunter record live in 2018 came out in November;

Read Rob Halfords CONFESS!, which sent me down a JP rabbit hole;

Have you ever had a song get stuck in your head?  This afternoon and evening has been dominated by one of those earwigs.  At least the guitar player on the recording session was George Harrison.

                       I liked this group and saw them back in the day. Kooymans [Now he is unfortunately ill with ALS] had a great guitar sound and was a fine player.

This is my all time favorite AC/DC record. It got spinnin the other day. As I had been checking out the new one, when I fell back listening to Powerage  in full. Unbeatable...

Absolutely. This album is effing supercharged. This is the quintessential  AC/DC album for the musician.  Your can feel the energy in this album. I love raw kick ass albums like this. All AC/DC albums have energy, but this one is special. Totally agree.

Sonuvabitch! All these decades I thought that this was a 'The Godz' original! Awesome, but I gotta say I still like The Godz version better.
