ZZtop. Late 70's. Don't remember the name of the album. Doesn't matter, don't care. What a buildup that record had. Actually, my brother bought the album and saved me the indignity. We listened to the first two songs and then sampled a bit of all the others. We thought "this must be the soundtrack in hell", then lifted the record off the turntable, used it to scoop our puke off the floor (metaphorically speaking) and threw it into the trash. We both despise ZZtop in every way shape or form.

Yeah... you're right...

There wasn't a single tune on Deguello you could work with...

OUCH. My man's been dissed!

Although I will say that Afterburner is the biggest POS ever put on tape.

Try the soundtrack to Paris, Texas with Lindley. Music of the gods.

It is a bit monochromatic in texture, but it's just so damn vibey. Maybe it affected me so much because the first time I heard it was while driving through the Texas Hill Country at night, but I find it utterly haunting.

And if you like Cooder/Lindley duets, check this out (you can't buy it):

Dunno. He lives large so I assume he was more than one of everything. I used to think it was supposed to mimic weed buds, but he explains it below. Apparently he swapped hats with a Cameroon Chief:

Have mercy! I was being sarcastic responding to 3of5.

I'm a devout member of the Rev's congregation...

A fellow brother! My bad. My sense of sarcasm and the absurd apparently let me down there. That photo was a pisser. Since Billy's such a fuzz pedal hoarder, I commissioned Casey Gooby, maker of the infamous "Bag of Dicks" fuzz pedal (a Jordan Bosstone clone) to make two high-gan variants, one for me and one for Billy, and rename them the "Bag of Shag" pedals. So much for venue security when you can walk up to Billy with a small metal box packed with electronics, a battery, and a switch, and then just pull it out of your jeans pocket and hand it to him. Anyway, he apparently dug it so much he had Elwood order six more from Casey, and Casey now makes them under the name of the "Organ Donor" pedal.

I just don't like Dave Gilmour. Don't know why ... Just don't. Therefore never bought any floyd stuff ever. That's wrong for this thread isn't it...?

No, but this is a pisser:
