Lucky enough to see Ozrics at several free festivals in late eighties and nineties, once so caned on micro dots I thought I was watching floyd from the meddle era. Great band , nice guys. In similar vein try the ;porcupine tree’
From avenged sevenfold through to chopin and everything in between. This is really awesome to listen to. If you want a nice hour musical journey one of the best albums I could listen to from start to finish is Smashing Pumpkins, Siamese Dream, and it's not traditionally my fav music. Or anything Led Zep.
Miles Davis - "Miles in the Sky" Steve Hillage - "Rainbow Dome Musick" Neil Young - "Ragged Glory", "Live Rust" Ozrics - "Pungent Effulgent" Led Zep "II" Gong - "Angel's Egg", "You" Phish - any live Summer Jams on YouTube Dylan - "Blonde on Blonde" Thievery Corp - "Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi" Zappa - "Absolutely Free", "Hot Rats" Mike Oldfield - "Hergest Ridge", "Ommadawn" & most (live) Dead "Dark Star(s)" & "Eyes...." + checking out the recommendations here...
Or as we used to call it....the ultimate album come down album! Not that this happens anymore, but...put this on as the last album of the night/morning after a night of raving and loads of mdma! Perfect!! Thanks for reminding me of this, been about 15 years since I listened to this beast!
I’m sure some albums are made for this time! I call it the timeless hours. Trying to roll with sparks coming out of the fingers and the vet has been around as there’s more horse tranquilliser around that royal ascot!
You know it - that's how I first discovered it too. And yeah, It's been waaaayyyyy too long since I had one of those nights. As soon as the world gets back to normal I'm going to recreate 'the old days' :-)
This vendor has been exposed using fake accounts to hype himself up, make fake review and bully other members. He claims many happy customers but no one is vouching for him whatsoever. A few customers have come forward and said they received rubbish. No detailed reviews or pics from trusted members. red flags all over them imo. It seems he is selling fake carts and fake cali packs which could be harmful. Enough is enough
We need to get snakes like this off LB. Vote up or down if you agree/disagree...
Thanks to everyone that has shared their opinion on this matter. I know I’ve gone way over the top and acted very militant in my quest to rid LB of stickyfingers and I know that behaviour like that is usually frowned up. I apologise if I offended anyone in my actions. I had good intentions
Congrats to all, hope it gets to show this behaviour can be dealt with. just shows it can be done in a civil way. Well mostly Just looking forward to sf trying to finagle his way back, could be interesting.
Hi terminator Borg please can we have an update on what you plan to do about this guy. He’s still active on here, has many many new accounts and is still threatening people and their families with violence. He is offering Bitcoin for people to sell addresses of the people he wants ‘sorted’. Please can you just let us know what we need to do to get this sorted. do you want us to leave him alone? Do you want us to carry on warning others of his crazy antics?
topic here about how his carts are fake possibly dangerous:
nearly every one of the topics on his page include posts from his fake accounts, these include: BigST, Con, Middleman24 and the list goes on
If you ask Stickyfingers a question he doesn't like you get downvoted or worse still abused by all his alter egos
The evidence to me is clear. When a trusted member on this site reviews one of their products and provides pics etc then I will eat humble pie and drop this. But quite frankly no one is verifying his products and there are allegations of dangerous items now so its becoming a serious issue.
Hi everyone,I have been in hospital the last few weeks.I have arrived home today and went on this site to order a bit of medication and my name is mentioned all over the place by paunch.Is this not classed as bullying as I haven’t been in a position to defend myself and he keeps making false accusations about me.He has repeatedly mentioned my name in his boring rants and I am sick of it.You are a bad bad person paunch people in hospital and you on here giving them hell.Hope you are proud of yourself.What if I go jump off a bridge because of this bullying.You need to stop this paunch it’s not fair.What did I do to deserve this abuse.It’s not on and you know it.Bloody pervert.
There was a topic on there where he accused an unhappy customer of having mental health problems and used his various alter egos to bully said member. We caught him out on there after someone spotted he posted a comment from the wrong profile, that topic disappeared a while ago, but someone has screenshots. Guys can I get some help with this?
Calling on everyone here, please if you have some evidence please add it here
If you put aside the fake accounts arguing for their main account... and the poorest customer service I have ever seen... and the doxxing and mental health shaming... and that they have revenue streams for these products that are legit yet use LB... and that only they have any real knowledge of the industry...
Then probably my favorite bit is how amazing their sales are with so few reviews.
HAHA wow you people need Jesus! I joined in the summer and have made over 30 purchases with countless Vendors. I mean it’s not hard to check people on ma page! I have posted many reviews on all these vendor pages! My experience with StickyFingersCo was always great. The best smoke! Rapid delivery! Yes I tried to back them up and look where that got me. Now grow up and do some investigating. Calling me sticky fs
I have electric 6s gay bar on vinyl, doesn't represent who I am or even my favourite genre of music, I just think it's a tune. It does raise questions when someone notices it for the 1st time, especially if they've not heard it, because I then feel the need to make them hear it and agree it's a tune
When I was 6 the first ever song I bought was Jimmy Somerville, mighty real. In my defence I just liked the cassette art. No excuses however when I purchased the Hamster Song. I was old enough to know better.
First record I ever bought as 9 year old was T. rex ride a white swan, second was Rolf Harris ! If you want really embarrassing, first ever gig I was 15 and got asked by bunch of friends to go to a cliff richard concert, not a cliff fan but went as fancied a girl. Two songs in realised it was a religious tour, no devil woman tonite. Still cringe at memory of everyone holding hands and singing allehluya.
Just listening to gill Scott herons first album ‘a new black poet’ , he still has the power to shock.who are today’s protest singers. Is urban rap and hip hop, choose your genre, the new protest platform. Or is it just a mysoginist, homophobic, violent twisted reflection of city life from those excluded from the mainstream. Is stormsy the new urban Dylan.?
Don't want to start a war between them but... Dave > Stormzy :P
edit - don't know whats going on with lb but this post went wacky, anyway jokes aside Dave actually deserves a little shout in this. The live performance of Black was really invoking and things like Question Time and Children of the Internet will appeal to any stoned thinker haha :) - at least the UK scene isn't just kids dying on cough medicine after one youtube hit, wtf happened to America?!
I'd say for this definitely Run The Jewels. Akala is still about as well. Immortal technique is meant to be releasing a new album soon. I don't think we will see the likes of a band like RATM again for sometime
Unfortunately he grew up and joined new labour. Saw him live at least dozen times, used to do loads of small gigs and protests. I was in socialist workers party and he was doing loads of fundraisers for the miners.
Just as much intolerance on the left as on the right. We live in a shallow social media driven world. In which we all eat consume far too much whilst slowly killing ourselves and the planet. Facebook, mcdonald's,nike etc. It's a shallow,plastic world and that's not a suitable environment for growing protest singers.
I blame the growing influence of the network - attentions turning inwards as the younger generation start living in the fantasy of the online world. I showed my teenage step daughter the matrix the other day thinking she'd love it - her response "why would anyone choose not to stay in the matrix"!
Yes man! Only a matter of time before a fellow Ozrics fan chimed in....been with them since tape days, their highs and lows, but Brandi's playing with them heralded a great return to form....esp. "Mooncalf"...and gorgeous to boot :)
Early days eh? I was there at the Crypt in Deptford (still have my membership card) when they only had a couple of tapes :) My mate is a good friend of Ed, and still is, so I've been lucky enough to hang outa few times and share a spliff or several backstage.
Eds released a new album this year, which is well worth a listen - he's still got it! If you also liked the ullulators, you should really check out what Gavin has been up to too - he has released some amazing stuff lately - check out bandcamp for his stuff.
So many good bands on this link, I loved some of the early Monster Magnet and of course Black Sabbath are great. If you haven't heard of Elder they are good. As they've progressed they've really got some mellow flows.
It sounds like you’ve got a sweet shop! The 0.0 has got a real nice quality to it, it doesn’t send me into space or anything it just gives me a real nice lift that leaves me happily lazy, very hard to leave it alone.
Just seeing if anyone's interested in buying clones of my stock plants ? Stick a message up here if interested so I can gauge the interest. I'll put some of my variety's up if there's enough ! Thanks all oilman x
Me too. Frank Zappa was the most musically-curious artist in my life time. He once jammed with a South American group of Pan Pipe players and combined them with the Irish band The Chieftans along with his consummate guitar playing to create the most wonderfully-bizarre set I've ever enjoyed. Don't know Frank Zappa? Check out the video 'City Of Tiny Lights', a plastacine masterpiece! Mind-expanding goodies all round? No. As I understand it, Frank didn't turn on anymore from a young age, if at all. A confirmed cigarette chain-smoker, there are records of strong tobacco being used to get high, but that's such a longshot. Frank's talents were his own, embellished by his creative genius; a real American Hero. Frank once did a Pony ( a crap, defecation) on stage during a set. He then opened a case containing $25 000. He said that if anyone can do something more gross, they can take the money. Some bright spark got up on stage and set about eating it. Did he win the money? What do you think? Two of ours have gone recently. Spencer Davis and Gordon Haskell, along with the big Jamaican man, Toots Hibbard. The question: 'Does a bird know that it's singing a beautiful song? Or is it a manifestation of the bird's beautiful spirit?' can be asked of our heroes. Who would you say has this quality? For me, Roy Orbison, Billie Holiday, George Harrison, Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, Dusty Springfield... for starters.
Zappa was afaik completely free of drugs other than alcohol and tobacco. I like the question are certain people born with a finite number of god given tunes, or are they limited by talent. Motzart wrote so many works in a relatively short period, he never corrected a manuscript. Some say he only had enuf time to write them out, so the works must have been inside his head waiting to come out. No conscious thought just a outpouring of genius. Zappa was same, his body of work is huge, most musicians I know admire him with godlike love.
Apropos Zappa, a rather excellent 'Tribute Band' (I know, stay with me) Called The Muffin Men. I saw them at the Phoenix in Exeter a few years ago. This from Wiki will give a measure of the quality of the band
The Muffin Men are a British band, based in Liverpool, England, which primarily plays the music of Frank Zappa and his band, The Mothers of Invention. The group formed in 1990 for a concert in honor of Zappa's fiftieth birthday. They went on to perform his music as a tribute band, along with some of their own compositions, worldwide. Until his death in 2008, the band often featured guest vocals and percussion by Jimmy Carl Black, former drummer and vocalist from Zappa's Mothers of Invention, with whom they also performed songs by Captain Beefheart.
Since their debut, the Muffin Men have featured no less than seven original Zappa band members, along with original Mothers Of Invention drummer/vocalist Jimmy Carl Black, as well as performing with Don Preston and Bunk Gardner in 1993. In 1994 they played a nine-week European tour with guest vocalist Ike Willis, and again teamed up with Willis in 2003 for a special Zappanale festival show, which also featured Napoleon Murphy Brock. (Zappanale is a yearly tribute concert festival dedicated to Frank Zappa's compositions.) Mike Keneally has also appeared with the band, along with Ray White, and Robert Martin. Denny Walley has performed on several occasions since 2010.
Rather than play pieces note-for-note, the band plays Zappa's material working to the strengths of the current line-up, often giving the music a different slant to the original versions.
25th anniversary gigs (2015) feature a core line-up of 3 original members - Rhino, Jumpy and Roddie, with Phil Hearn on keys
Loved to have seen them or the real deal, Zappa was reportedly a dictator when it came to the band, bit like James brown. One mistake you get a warning, two mistakes and start looking for a new band. Often wish I understood musical theory better as people who do are astonished at his knowledge and inventive audacity.
The Muffin Men. Wow! As the MC says at the end of the Edar Broughton Band's turnout on the Glastonbury Rock and Blues Festival 1971 album - 'Fuck me old boots! What a set!' Interesting point about the Great Dictator. When you see the gig, thanks for putting it on, Frank don't care, having introduced the band, how long he takes tuning up. When he kicks off, he's gonna have it right. So the whole band are following him. Woe betide if you're not where he wants you, when he wants you. Tough stuff, but this is a rare quality Zappa has. His perfection is right where he wants it, at any moment. To mess up, or the impact messing up has on Frank, is difficult to comprehend because we don't have this quality. I FEEL GOOD! That's the sticky, that is. Anyway. The Hardest Working Man In Showbusiness! James Brown has the same experience of performance. His guys are shitting themselves with a constant eye for his signal,which could be any time soon. They were on salary of $1500 or something a week and they would be fined for dirty shoes or wrinkled clothes at rehearsals. This same quality may be seen in other, more structured, boring artists like Sinatra and Streisand. I love JB, Mark Lamarr visited JB as an elderly chap, who, when clearing his throat, made Mark think he was kicking off a song! Understanding musical theory... Me too. I'm not very musical myself. We can only enjoy an experience alone. Musical types will experience more comprehension of the forms and things they're picking up on, which will enrich their experience. Lucky bleeders! Lucky Bleeders! @ Ian Dury.
