383: Loud & 'eavy, vol.1

Today's post is a bit about me, hitting puberty & discovering
music back in the days...a mere 30 years ago already [:-)
Age 15 I listened to stuff like Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, Bad Co,
Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Santana, AC/DC, Ten Years After, Doors,
Rush, Jimi Hendrix, Free, Ted Nugent, Rainbow, Jethro Tull, Supertramp,
Specials, Stray Cats etc. and, well, age 16 I taped my uncle's
record collection to cassettes in one sleepless holiday and added
Rolling Stones, Van Morrisson, Frank Zappa, Roxy Music
and many, many more albums to my daily digest.
A few years later I discovered Miles, Trane and the Blue Note
catalogue, from there on there was no holding me back.
I embraced the music of Sly & Family Stone, Aretha, JB, Curtis etc.
Meanwhile I managed to develop a crush to the music of Bob Marley,
Lee Perry, King Tubby, Dub Syndicate and other affiliated, heavy
smoke orientated laid back music. And a habit, I admit.
Soon after the grunge craze with Screaming Trees, Nirvana a.o.
new kinda retro-bands came to rise, like Fu Manchu, Kyuss, QOTSA
and the whole of the Man's Ruin catalogue. I kept a close ear!
Hence my youthful days, good stoner-doom-metal-kinda heavy
bands have ever since had a soft spot in my overall aural spectrum,
something I just can't seem to shake loose,
yes, I admit,
I need a good bangin' so every now & then!
So here it is, a tribute to good & loud music,
put on your blackest & most torn Melvins T-shirt,
your worst skinny light-blue jeans and don't forget
to strap on your spiked belt...
order a lot of beers by your favourite blonde barlady
and smoke of bit of weed backstage between sets...
You'll get there, hope you play the motherf*ckin house
DOWN with this 2 hour 45 minutes homage to my early
influences kinda tribute post kinda thing!
I once had the pleasure of seeing Masters Of Reality live,
the sheer happiness I experienced that evening, I tried to
capture in today's mix and yeah...
