Hipbone Slim & The Kneetremblers (2011) -Square Guitar

Artist: Hipbone Slim & Knee Tremblers
Album: Square Guitar
Release date: October 2011
Quality: mp3 CBR 160
Size: 66 MB

”Hipbone Slim and the Kneetremblers take rock’n’roll, rhythm’n’blues – whatever you want to call it – and give it their own unique stamp and energy. They have somehow captured the true essence of rock’n’roll in a way that very few have been able to do in a very long time. Their new album Square Guitar is the finest offering so far.

The band is led by the ubiquitous Sir Bald Diddley, on guitar and lead vocals, a man who has been described as “Britain’s string king” in reference to his wild and fiery guitar style, influenced by Bo Diddley, Link Wray, Chuck Berry, Dick Dale and the like, and “Ricky Nelson gone very wrong” (with regards to his singing!). Also known for his very precarious stage antics, including the infamous “Pea Bug” which involves much rolling around on the floor during guitar solos! He is currently also working on a new band project with former members of Supergrass and Thee Headcoats (see Dirty Water Records release DWC1054).

Hipbone Slim and the Kneetremblers have four albums released on Voodoo Rhythm Records, receiving great critical acclaim and all considerable radio airplay, and have also recently released a joint album with Swiss Cajun kings, Mama Rosin. Mark Lamarr regularly plays their music and has also featured the band live in session. Never short of new ideas, the band have three more albums on the way, and play a set of nearly entirely original compositions. Their recordings have regularly been described as “scarily authentic” and live shows “totally out there”! They are ce rtainly very raucous and entertaining occasions . . . The band have toured extensively throughout Europe, with more dates across the continent over the coming year.”

Various Artists (2009) -Shadow Music of Thailand

Artist: various
Album: Shadow Music of Thailand
Released: 2009
Quality: mp3 CBR 320
Size: 97 MB

”SHADOW MUSIC was a broad term given to the Thai guitar pop movement of the 1960s and the groups that came out of it, all under the profound influence of early Western rock and roll. British instrumental wonders The Shadows (as in Cliff Richards & the Shadows) were the origin of the genre's title, also coined 'Wong Shadow' or early Thai 'String' music. Shadow records were often marketed as 'Thai Modernized Music' which it was in the truest sense. Traditional Thai melodies were given the Shadow treatment; incorporating rock, surf, a-go-go, exotica, soul, blues, Latin and other worldly styles of the times. Inventive compositions and instrumental genius meet the occasional odd vocal arrangement and the results range from plaintive guitar and organ-driven lullabies to full-blown electric garage folk-psychedelia! Featured on this collection are a handful of the leading recorded artists from the time; P.M. Pocket Music, The Son of P.M., P.M.7, Jupiter and Johnny Guitar. Throughout the 1960s, these groups forged a unique and highly self-referential Thai sound.” ~ Sublime Frequencies

Various Artists (1999)-For Adults Only

Artist: various
Album: For Adults Only
Released: 1999
Quality: mp3 CBR 192
Size: 103 MB

”The 25 tracks compiled on this single-disc compilation have been issued under a plethora of titles since the '80s -- most notably in the digital domain as Raunchy Rock & Roll (1995). Many of these dirty ditties have become legendary in frat houses and barrooms across the world, despite their initial obscurity due to excruciatingly poor under-the-counter circulation. A more sociological vantage point reveals a broad scope of musical styles, ranging from doo wop ("Don't -- Around With Love") to redneck country & western twang ("Pussy Cat Song"). However, there are a few pop music genres that seem to artistically lend themselves to the unadulterated and overtly sexual intonations -- some intentional, others quite serendipitous. Among the most authentic are the '50s rhythm & blues and doo wop styles which inform tracks such as "Derby Town" and "The Rotten Cock Suckers Ball" -- both of which became infamous platters for the Clovers. The latter title was revived by Frank Zappa as "Cock-Suckers' Ball" and issued on his live Does Humor Belong in Music? multimedia project from the mid-'80s. Likewise, there are '50s sock-hop ballads such as "It's So Hard to Say I Love You" and "Sit on My Face," and even rockabilly ("Yo Yo"). There are also garage rockers ("Baby, Let Me Bang Your Box") and a funky (literally!), randy reggae reading of Rare Earth's hit "Get Ready," which is subtitled "French Style." More modern rock & roll contributions include "-- Off" by, appropriately enough, the Dildos, as well as David Trout's double-entendre-laden "Fast Food Song." Other notable inclusions are Screamin' Jay Hawkins' R&B hoodoo "Bite It" and "Constipation Blues," as well as the incendiary coupling of Jackie Wilson and LaVern Baker on a wild take of "Think Twice," which was decidedly toned down for the legit 45 rpm (b/w "Please Don't Hurt Me") for Brunswick in 1965. Also in the mix are a few sides -- such as "Did He Eat Your Titty" and "Stickball" -- that defy category. For Adults Only is a refreshingly self-indulgent artifact that reflects the decidedly more carnal and base aspects of popular music. Potential enthusiasts should be aware of the sound quality, which vacillates from track to track. While not unlistenable, there is copious surface noise to deal with on a majority of the recordings.” ~ by Lindsay Planer,

Daniel Zamir (2010) -Gaagua Lekan

Artist: Daniel Zamir
Album: Gaagua Lekan
Released: 2010
Quality: mp3 CBR 320
Size: 151 MB

Alto saxophonist Danny Zamir plays modern jazz that draws as much from klezmer as it does from Ornette Coleman. Born circa 1980 in Tel Aviv, Israel, Zamir was drawn to the sound of the saxophone at a young age and began studying the instrument at the age of 12. Hearing Charlie Parker for the first time had a great effect upon him, and from that point on, he focused on music studies. Zamir attended a Tel Aviv high school that specialized in the arts and offered an intensive music program. In addition to the music of Charlie Parker, some of Zamir's early influences include Eric Dolphy, John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, and Pat Metheny. Zamir formed a trio called Not for Sale and eventually started listening to other musicians, as well. Of those he heard, Zamir was most impressed with saxophonist and experimenter John Zorn. In late 1998, he relocated to N.Y.C., where he met percussionist Kevin Zubek and bassist Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz, with whom he formed SATLAH, as well as well-known N.Y.C. musicians including Zorn. Zamir has also worked occasionally with members of the downtown scene, including Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Marc Ribot, and Calvin Weston. SATLAH's recorded debut includes a guest appearance by Zorn and was released in March 2000 on the Tzadik label. Zamir followed it with I Believe, also on the Tzadik imprint, in 2008. ~ Joslyn Layne, Rovi
