    My initial intention was listening to a couple of tracks adn then moving into something else, but I ended playing the whole thing. Pescado 2, one of the best double albums ever. 1973.

    Garth was the evil genius that led the way for Contemptible Country
    in my mind. 25 years later, I know, but I still have him locked in.
    I know it's insensitive and mean, but heck... I'm mean.

    I listened to that Trout Mask Replica album the other day for the first time. (I guess it was good timing, I had happened to be reading a thread about 'difficult albums you got on the first listen, and that one came up a lot, I didn't realize it was that time of year for some people.)

    I would say I 'got it' the first time through, but weird for its own sake is something I'm fairly used to (which I'm sure is a common condition in these GD threads.)

    I can see why some people are so into it, though I don't feel the need to go back to that well incredibly soon.

    No man, be like me--excoriate them for their lapse in taste until you get temporarily banned from the thread. :D
    I'm fairly sure you've seen more of my country than I have.

    There is from Great Eternity a mild & pleasant rest
    Namd Beulah a Soft Moony Universe feminine lovely
    Pure mild & Gentle given in Mercy to those who sleep Eternally.
    Created by the Lamb of God around
    On all sides within & without the Universal Man
    The Daughters of Beulah follow sleepers in all their Dreams
    Creating Spaces lest they fall into Eternal Death


    In a brief hiatus from Beefheart, I am listening to the mesmerizing Canaxis aka Canaxis 5. (Holger Czukay)

    The funny thing is now when I hear him, he sounds almost classic compared to what I now associate with Contemporary Country, but when he was doing his thing I thought of him that way too (pejorative paranomasia and all).

    In between playing the Dead I have been re-visiting early Genesis lately and really enjoying it ! Recently played their first album and Nursery Cryme, so much fun and I heard things I had missed in the past !

    Here's a not so good pic from Green Leaf Rustlers on, um, it's from the week before last, I think:

    And I didn't photoshop out a piece of John Molo's head, it just so happens the mic stand is lined up perfectly with the outline of his forehead. Weird!

    The thing is it's not "weird for its own sake" to the extent that implies that the musical weirdness isn't justified by the psychic-aesthetic pleasure it yields. Once the mind is properly recalibrated, it is a feast of sound and you start to wish all rock music was played askew just so. Definitely not an album to be admired rather than enjoyed, although some people do get stuck in that halfway region...

    Indeed it is! And I didn't really appreciate it until at least a few years after the fact...

    Recent un-Grateful listening, by Wave T. Flag:

    Phish 7-29-88
    Zappa 10-28-77 (I can't believe that @bzfgt isn't into Zappa)
    Volunteers, Jefferson Airplane. I needed to hear Good Shepard in its context after seeing Tuna play it on 12-30.
    The first five tracks from Bowie At The Beeb. I guess I wasn't feeling it.
    Songs For Judy by Crazy Neil (I've had a couple of '76 boots for years, so I'm not blown away by this. But I'm sure the sound quality is superior to what I have, but the '76 boots I have are very high quality, so ...)
    Phish 7-22-97
    The first 10 tracks of Wilco, 6-24-2017. I need to finish this show.

    Yeah, sorry, maybe I should be. I think it's the same thing that keeps me off Phish, which is why I associate them even if maybe no one else does. Aggressively white nerd/smart alecky vocals and lyrics coupled with proficient but sort of slick and intellectual music, I roll off the surface like it's a teflon dome. I like "Hungry Freaks, Daddy"...

    Specific to your second sentence, Zappa is definitely one of Phish’s influences, as is early Genesis.

    A great musical costume for the Halloween Phish show would be them doing Garth Brooks doing Chris Gaines.

    I take that back.

    Dude. I already had to suffer through KV. "This is what troll smells like"

    I would jump ship if they did that. I would immediately walk out if I was in attendance

    As a side note, I’d have guessed you liked Led Zeppelin, though I’m not sure exactly what I’m basing that on.

    I still don't agree with your view that you got trolled. It's Halloween. You didn't like Bowie Halloween, you didn't like made up band Halloween, c'mon dude! It's OK, only if you like all other Halloween shows. :D

    Love zep. Have their entire discography on cassette. I haven't bought cassettes since 1989 or so.

    As a guy I worked with once said of another guy I worked with not liking Led Zeppelin, "What's wrong with him?" That's not actually what he said, but I'm trying to be PC here.

    But I suppose it's legal not to like LZ.
