  • my (already accepted) submitted photos vol.1 the first 155

    1 déc. 2005, 14h43m

    Okay, so i've submitted a lot of photos to last.fm, however I didn't submit any for the first 3 months after the merger and the addition of photos. The lack of photos for artist other than the mainstream disappointed me, so I made it my mission to add a pictures for artist who i came across without a submitted picture. (and of course voted for every one with a submission) Only a few times i have added a picture when one was already submitted, that was only when the submitted one was horrible.

    I have not added the links (at this time) as not to overbroadcast this, but to keep track for myself.

    Most photos are from amg or discogs or official websites.

    T. Raumschmiere - Mod Club - Electro Goodness!

  • Live In Toronto this week (sep 15-21)

    15 sept. 2005, 14h27m

    Thursday Sept. 15

    Zoobombs are at the Silver Dollar bringing some J-rock explosion to town.

    13 & God are at Lee's Palace. They are the Notwist are and Themselves together as one. Boy In Static are the openers

    Friday Sept. 16

    The White Stripes are at the Molson Amplitheatre. Sure the albums are getting worse, but they are still to rock you silly. The Greenhornes provide an opening act worth catching

    Nouvelle Vague are at the Rivoli. A French band doing bossa nova covers?...sounds like an interesting show for sure.

    Ladybug Mecca from Digable Planets is at the Sunnyside Pavillion. Support from Steve Spacek

    The Hugh Dillon Redemption Choir is at the Mod Club as the Headstones legend continues to play. Armchair Cynics open.

    Saturday Sept. 17

    U2 play the final of 4 shows at the Air Canada Centre. I did have tickets to this show, however a wedding will prevent me from attending. Dashboard Confessional open here in Toronto. Montreal gets the Arcade Fire as their U2 opener, is this fair? Of course not, which eases the fact I can no longer go.

    Jack Johnson and his legions are at the Molson Amplitheatre. Many people i know will be there...i will not. Matt Costa opens.

    Wolf Eyes are sure to impress the crowd at the Horseshoe. On a different night I would surely be there.

    Apocalyptica are in town at the Guvernment to help mollify the local metal fans. I haven't been to a metal show in a loong time. Soon methinks. Eyes Of Fire open.

    Martha and the Muffins are at the Drake. Wow..did i read that right. I had no clue they were still (or have returned to) playing. Echo Beach may be the best tune every to come out of this city but I find this news a little pathetic.

    C'mon vs Whitey Houston at the Rivoli is billed as the boogie rock-off. They will rock off again the next day as well.

    Diamond Nights are at the El Mocambo. Also on the bill are the Illuminati , Rocketface and The Vacation

    Jason Fowler is at Eastminster United Church

    Sunday Sept. 18

    Bruce Cockburn headlines a benefit to save St. Stephens-in-the-fields church, with a notorious Canadiana lineup i'm sure my parents would enjoy. Also on the bill are Molly Johnson , Daniel Lanois and Jane Siberry


    Monday Sept. 19

    Pearl Jam is at the Air Canada Centre. Opening is Sleater-Kinney and i'm usually up for anything Sleater-Kinney, but not opening for Vedder and company for $60.

    Sigur Rós are at Massey Hall. Iceland is the new Seattle....or is it Montreal?

    The National are at the Horseshoe with support from We Are Scientists

    Athlete are the Opera House in what is a very eventful Monday night here. Matt Pond PA open

    Tuesday Sep 20

    Röyksopp are at the Opera House, supported by Annie I'd go for Annie alone but this double bill is superb. Maybe it's Norway that's the new Seattle.

    Switchfoot are at the Mod Club playing a show for contest winners only

    The Bloody Hollies are at the Silver Dollar. The Willowz provide support.

    Wednesday Sep 21

    Sounds Like Justice III benefit at the Mod Club. Benefit for the Association in defense of the wrongly convicted. On the bill are Shaye , Andy Stochansky , Andy Kim , Danny Michel and Justin Rutledge

    I wanted too see for myself the encompassing scope of a week of concerts here. If anyone is reading i might just continue this.

    Melissa
    The Allman Brothers Band
    Eat a Peach
    1972

    Today is the first (of many) probably detours in my planned start of the song of the day series. Going to see the Allman Brothers in concert tonight at the Molson Amplitheatre. I have seen them before and they put on a fantastic show. I'm not really a fan of or do i really get the popularity of acts like Jack Johnson, Dave Matthews Band or Phish...but hearing the Allmans jam out is pure bliss!

    *****
    OK, So now that my music colletion has reached near insane proportions, i have decided to recommend a favorite track each day (for as long as i can last). I hope you enjoy and feel free to comment.

    Blues From a Gun
    the Jesus and Mary Chain
    Automatic
    1989

    This song comes from the first album I ever purchased because of a girl I liked (surely a common purchase theme for many of the boys out there). She was a very cute goth girl in my math class in a small town where being goth was definitely something different. Anways, she wore a Jesus and Mary Chain t-shirt to class one day..and viola! one of my all time favorite bands discovered.

    Channel Z
    The B-52's
    Cosmic Thing
    1989

    To continue from yesterday my first non-Femmes concert was the B-52's...lots of campy fun goodness, so I will add them to my tour through memory lane. The show was at Canada's Wonderland which just proves that a good show and rollercoasters should go together

    Kiss Off
    Violent Femmes
    Violent Femmes
    1983

    For day 2 I will go with the first band i've ever seen perform live. I was 14 and my cousin snuck me into a liscened event in Florida. My concert T-shirt from the show became my favorite shirt and lasted for around 10 years before it finally disintigrated into dust! "Kiss Off" is the best tune ever to 'Count to Ten' and will get you smiling for sure. The Femmes were also the 2nd band I saw live as they opened for the band i will feature tomorrow.

    Everything Counts
    Depeche Mode
    Construction Time Again
    1983

    As this is my first song of the day, i thought i would go with something special to me but there is so much, i'll start with an introduction of my musical life. This is from the very first cassette i ever purchased with my own money. Money I got from collecting empty beer bottles (growing up close to the local hot spot for teen field parties proved to be very beneficial to my pockets for many years of my young life). My plan is to keep the selections out of the mainstream, but really good tunes will always be popular with many people :-)
