TIL that Louis Prima played the part of King Louie in The Jungle Book.

I just finished watching this documentary.


I watched the first half of this interview with Keely Smith but lost interest when she started going on about her love for George Bush.

The onstage value of drumming god Gavin Harrison far exceeds his drumming ability.


And since Porcupine Tree are apparently concentrating most heavily on In Absentia and Fear of a Blank Planet as sources for pre-2010 material for the upcoming tour:

Here's the Swedish metal band Meshuggah performing a delightful little ditty about dying of a brain aneurysm. Tomas Haake remains my all-time favorite metal drummer.


Slipknot is a bit closer to home:

Oh man, I lubs me some Gary Numan.


I am also loving the new Porcupine Tree album. Steven Wilson and Randy McStine doing the harmonies on this one in concert should be quite the thing.

Lisa and I went to see Lost Highway yesterday. And since I can't watch ANY David Lynch movie without thinking of the Dean-Stockwell-sings-In-Dreams-to-Dennis-Hopper scene from Blue Velvet:


Thinking of that scene has the collateral benefit of reminding me that Roy Orbison was a music god, which in turn leads to a couple of happy hours listening to ol' Roy's tunes.

Went looking for information on why Colin Edwin, Porcupine Tree's long-time bassist, has no involvement with the group's new album or upcoming tour. Found out that since 2016 he's been a member of O.R.k., a band featuring Edwin, drummer Pat Mastelotto of King Crimson/Mr. Mister fame, Italian guitarist Carmelo Pipitone, and Italian singer/producer/film score composer Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari. This stuff's pretty tasty.

A metal singer I enjoy collaborating with an electronic music composer I enjoy. Song didn't rock my world but I appreciate seeing these two artist in the same song.

From 1972 to 1976 the classic lineup of Tangerine Dream (Edgar Froese, Chris Franke, Peter Baumann) pumped out the albums Zeit, Atem, Phaedra, Rubycon and Stratosfear. Few bands ever can claim so spectacular a run.

We're going to see this preternaturally talented person perform live in Oakland coming up this Friday, so we've been watching this concert on a tight loop in the meantime to psych ourselves up.

This very night, many an unknown band will play in many a shithole bar doing kickass covers of classic tunes. So it was with these guys back in February, covering a couple of songs from Black Sabbath's very first album.

No big, except that the guitarist/singer of this band is slated to be a touring member of Porcupine Tree come Fall.

Today's been a listen-to-great-drummers day, and that'll always lead eventually to the late, great Jeff Porcaro, who died of a heart attack at the ripe old age of 38. (Many know about the Toto stuff, but god DAMN, check out that with other artists list!) And Porcaro led to this old favorite that I hadn't thought about in decades.

Imagine investing the time and effort it takes to become Geddy Lee only to have this here veritable newborn infant come along and show you up.
