The Beach Boys and The Grateful Dead-Fillmore East, NY 1971

This is an awesome show! This is the legendary show that brought the Beach Boys out of 5 years of obscurity and allowed them to earn some much needed and deserved artistic credibility. According to legend, Bob Dylan was in the audience, and after the show he said of the Beach Boys, "Those guys are fuckin' good!". I agree with Dylan on that one. Give it a listen and hopefully you will, too.

Cool Band Alert: The Postmarks

http://thepostmarks.com
I can't get enough of these guys! The Postmarks hail from Miami, Florida, the last place you'd expect a band like this to come out of. Pretty melodies, and a pretty singer with a pretty voice...listening to their music makes me feel like I've died and gone to heaven...



The band members include multi-instrumentalists Christopher Moll and Jon Wilkins, singer Tim Yehezkely (a woman with a guy's name), keyboardist Jeff Wagner, and bassist Brian Hill.
If you like The Beach Boys, Burt Bacharach, Van Dyke Parks, Stereolab, The High Llamas, Camera Obscura, The Zombies, The Association, The Cowsills, any other 60s pop or indie pop, or just good music in general, you'll probably like The Postmarks.

Check out the songs streaming on their myspace: http://www.myspace.com/thepostmarks

And check out some of their videos:

The Postmarks-Goodbye


The Postmarks-Let Go


The Postmarks-Know Which Way The Wind Blows


The Postmarks-Balloons-from a children's show called "Yo Gabba Gabba".

Hey...

I know its been a while since I've posted anything, haven't been able to get online on a regular basis. I've got a few requests for re-ups, unfortunately, I might not be able to re-up or post anything new due to lack of frequent internet access and because my laptop is still dead. Don't worry (baby), this blog is not ending anytime soon, and I'll eventually be back to regularly posting stuff.

Lightman's Board

Lightman's message board is now back up...http://lightman.dk.

This is probably redundant now that Lightman re-launched his board, but if you want, check out the new Do You Like Worms? message board at http://doyoulikeworms.yuku.com.

Tuesday, May 6, 2008

Message Board

New Do You Like Worms message board here:
http://doyoulikeworms.yuku.com/

I'm still trying to organize the board, but if you want to post now go ahead. You'll have to register through Yuku first before you can post, though.
Check out the Do You Like Worms? message board. There's not much there now, but i think it could be used in a function similar to Lightman's short-lived but excellent board.
http://www.instantmessageboards.com/viewforum.php?f=72225
Let me know if the site does not come up, and if a lot of people run into problems with it, I'll start a new board with a different host, maybe EZboard or something.

New Stuff

Might be a while before I post some new stuff here, as my laptop with all my Beach Boy bootlegs crapped out on me before I could burn all of my stuff to CD. Hopefully I can get my computer fixed soon and I hope I didn't lose any data. Don't worry, I've got some stuff on CD, I can still manage to post something every now and again.

You know what, I'll still post regularly, but there won't be as much music until I get my comp fixed...might be a while as I like to put things off, and because getting a computer fixed may be quite expensive.

So anyway, I'm not deleting the blog. Enjoy what I've posted so far, and hopefully I'll get some more stuff up on here.

So long for now.

That Lucky Old Sun Demos

EDIT: This was already posted over at Triff's blog, Triffids on the Beach. But, thanks to an anonymous commenter, we've now got the studio demos for That Lucky Old Sun here at this blog. too. I guarantee you'll love them. Forever She'll Be My Surfer Girl and Midnight's Another Day were both already available on Brian Wilson's website. Be sure to catch Brian on tour this summer if he actually comes to a place near you. He's doing some shows in the UK. He's also doing the northeast United States and eastern Canada. And I also think he's doing some shows in L.A.

Get 'em here: EDIT: 5/6/08 12:50PM EDT-I've removed the link to the demos in order to avoid a C&D in case BriMel decides to go on a rampage. I'll repost the demos after all the hubbub dies down, might be a couple months...I'm only taking them down so the blog doesn't end up going down.


Remember to check out Triffids on the Beach.

Alternate Brian Wilson's SMiLE

This has already been posted on Warnakey's blog and over on my other blog Give Me Some Boots, but since it's Beach Boys related and it kicks ass, I've posted it here too. Enjoy it. And also check out Alternate Brian Wilson's myspace.

Get this awsome SMiLE mix here:
http://massmirror.com/75f46e96f127d151f309bba2f6d1edcf.html

And like I said in my last post, I'll have a live show or 2 up pretty soon.
Take care.

More stuff soon...

More stuff soon, I promise! Just been a little busy; blog has been put on the back burner lately, sorry about that. I have something up here soon. I've got a few live shows, I might post a couple of those.

New Blog...Give Me Some Boots

Apparently one of my favorite blogs, Nargo the Bort's Deviant Subculture, an excellent source of bootlegs, is no more. In a pathetic attempt to fill the void, I've started my own blog where I will be posting stuf from my very limited collection of bootlegs. I'll probably be posting a lot of non-BB stuff, though they will make some appearances every now and then. Check it out at http://givemesomeboots.blogspot.com/.

If anyone wants to be a contributor to the new blog as I'll eventually run out of material, just leave a comment and I'll set you up as an author.

I am NOT shutting down this blog. I promise there will be some more Beach Boys stuff. Also remember to check out Lightman's site, Warnakey's, Linear Zap's, Dutchie's, and Triff's blogs. Linear Zap has a ton of the Sea of Tunes Unsurpassed Masters series for download. Its excellent stuff.

New Banner...

The new banner I just posted at the top of the page is hopefully going to be temporary, until I can make a better looking one. I kinda forgot to put Bruce in the picture, and I shouldn't have played around with the brightness and contrast because it made it so I can hardly read some of the words. Newer, hopefully better banner coming soon.

Sunday, March 23, 2008

I'm back...

I'm back, folks, and I'll have more stuff for the blog pretty soon. I just wanna say that I'm astounded that the blog has surpassed 10,000 visitors. Guess Beach Boy-land is bigger than I've previously imagined.

No More New Posts For The Next Week

Sorry guys and gals, but I'm leaving college for spring break (unfortunately I'm not going on an actual vacation) and I won't be posting anything for a little over a week. Don't worry, I'll be back before you know it with more Beach Boys stuff. Stay tuned.

I won't be surprised if the hit counter hits 10,000 this week, well actually, I'm quite surprised its as high as it is. Thanks to all of the people who come to this site, I'm more than happy to provide you with all the great music and such.

So long folks. I'll be back.

The Beachles-Sgt. Petsounds

This is a mashup of Pet Sounds and Sgt. Pepper made a couple of years ago by a guy named Clayton Counts, who unfortunately had it taken from his site by "the man". Good news! I've got it right here:

Lightman's board...

Lightman's Beach Boys and Beatles Webboard is back up and running over at Lightman.dk. He's got an excellent site.

Don't worry, people (doooon't worrry people, everything will turn out all right), I'll post some more music soon.

Monday, March 3, 2008

Sorry about not posting anything lately...

Sorry for not posting for the past few days...I've been busy with school and school related BS, plus my mind has been elsewhere besides the blog. I'm flabbergasted that this site has had over 8000 visitors, its mind blowing. Don't worry folks, more stuff is coming; if I don't forget I'll post something tonight. Take care, blog readers.

And remember, there is a Yes, I Do Like Worms message board; but its probably obsolete considering that Lightman runs a super kick-ass board at Lightman.dk. Its an awesome place to go if you're a Beach Boys or Beatles fan. I can't plug it enough. Then, of course, there's always the excellent Smiley Smile board.

Smiling Pets!



















This has become my new favorite Beach Boys tribute album. Its a Japanese-only release which features nothing but indie artists. Before I heard this the only artists on it that I'd heard of before are Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, musician and producer Jim O'Rourke (who was a member of Sonic Youth for the first half of this decade, and produced Wilco's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot), and The Olivia Tremor Control, whom I believe are on the Elephant 6 label. This one is definitely worth the listen.

Tracklisting:

Melt Banana-You're Welcome
Short Hair Front-I'm Waiting For The Day
Olivia Tremor Control-Do You Like Worms
Jim O'Rourke-Fall Breaks and Back To Winter

Live at the Big Sur Folk Festival Monterrey, California March 3, 1970

Live In Seattle 22 March 1970

Hey everyone, its time for some new stuff. This is a muddy soundboard recording from a Seattle show in 1970. By muddy, I mean REALLY muddy. What's special about this one is that it was one of a series of concerts when Mike Love was temporarily committed to a mental hospital, and taking his place at the concerts was none other than BRIAN WILSON!!!!!! You can hardly make out Brian's voice in this show, but he's there. Carl and Al handle Mike's leads for this show.

The Cocaine Sessions/Hamburger Tapes

For those of you not familiar with this boot, it is a recording of Brian and Dennis circa 1981, both coked up, badly playing some songs they wrote at a piano, also includes an interview with Brian conducted by Les Chan. The song "City Blues" would be released on Brian's 2004 album Gettin' In Over My Head, and "Oh Lord" was demo'd for The Beach Boys '85 but never made the final cut.

Mike Quigley Interview

Here are recordings of an interview with Al, Bruce, Carl, and Mike conducted by Mike Quigley in 1969. Not really the most revealing, but still great for a die hard fan who can't get enough Beach Boys stuff.

SMiLE Artwork!

This is seriously cool. Frank Holmes, who did the cover and booklet art for the original 1966-67 SMiLE has reproductions of the SMiLE cover and the booklet illustrations for sale at his website. http://www.frankholmes.com/purchase.htm

From Holmes' site:




"Lithographic Print of the SMiLE front cover. The lithograph has been reproduced directly from the artist's master onto gloss cover stock at the original 14"x16" size, complete with crop marks and record company margin comments."

Unsurpassed Masters Volume 10!

Ready for a Beach Boys Party!? Sorry, but I can't take anyone to one of those, but I can whip up some outtakes from the album, "The Beach Boys Party!", not quite as good as an actual party put on by the Beach Boys, but is still quite good. This is UM 10, the alternate Party! album.
I want to give a huge thank you to Lightman over at lightman.dk for putting these up on his forum. Which, by the way, if you haven't visited yet, is absolutely phenomenal if you are a Beach Boys or Beatles fan.

If this gets deleted from Rapidshare, I'll re-up it on mass mirror.

SUPER BOWL CHAMPS!!!

























I don't know if any of you fine blog readers are fans of American Football, but right now I'm pretty psyched because the New York Giants have won the Super Bowl! This is the first championship they've won since 1991! Congrats to the Giants, and to everyone reading this, more Beach Boys stuff coming this week!

Cool Band Alert: Barenaked Ladies
















Hey folks, this is the 2nd installment of a sporadic series of posts I like to call the "Cool Band Alert". This one is about one of my all time favorite bands (aside from the Beach Boys), Barenaked Ladies. Fronted by singer-guitarists Steven Page and Ed Robertson, and filled out by bassist-singer Jim Creeggan, singer-multi-instrumentalist Kevin Hearn, and drummer Tyler Stewart, this band from Toronto has recorded and released some of the best rock and pop music of the past 15+ years. Singer-keyboardist-percussionist Andy Creeggan, younger brother of bassist Jim Creeggan, played on the Ladies' first 2 albums. Their influences are wide-ranging, with each member of the group bringing in their own tastes and styles. SOme of their major influences include The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Smiths, They Might Be Giants, The B-52's, The Rheostatics, Rush, Johnny Cash, The Violent Femmes, Talking Heads, The Proclaimers, Yes, Duran Duran, Public Enemy, The Beastie Boys, R.E.M., Simon and Garfunkel...the list goes on.

Live at Michigan State 1966




A couple months ago I edited together several of the musical tracks with the talking between the songs from the Michigan State concerts on The Live Box and made my own "live album". What I basically did was took the second Michigan concert, severely cut back the talking parts (Mike Love is not as funny as he would like to think), then edited the leftover talking parts onto the ends of the musical tracks, I cut off the false start on You're So Good To Me, and I added in Wouldn't It Be Nice from the first Michigan concert (wasn't performed at the 2nd one), and whala! The Beach Boys Live at Michigan State 1966.

Spoiler Alert...

In a little over a week will mark the unveiling of ascrodin's SMiLE '08. Just for a teaser I'm posting the tracklisting. Heroes and Villains is 10 minutes long, The Elements is 15 minutes. I also made an 8 minute version of Good Vibrations. I "cooked up" a pretty crazy outro after the child is the father segment of Surf's Up, extending that song to about 8 minutes. For other songs, I used talking parts from the Psychedelic Reel, Vegetable Arguments, the Chicago Cab Driver, the Basketball Game, Bob Gordon's Real Trip, etc. Brian asks Denny for some hash joints and wonders whether the boys are feeling the acid yet all the while George falls into his French Horn during Surf's Up. During the tag to Heroes and Villains Mike asks for some sexual pleasure devices and Carl says to bring Mike a bag of money. Brian gets stuck in a mic. Van Dyke Parks and David Anderle order ice cream from a tinkling piano. I did something "wild" to pretty much every song. Its about 80 minutes of craziness, and in my opinion, sounds a million times better than my other SMiLE mix.

Just checking in...more stuff coming after the 26th

Hey hey hey, this isn't Fat Albert, its just little old me here at the blog. Happy belated New Year, hope Xmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa, Ramandan, or any other holiday you blog visitors celebrate went well. Just checking in, seeing how the blog's been doing without me. I'm on a public internet connection right now and my laptop has limited battery power, so I'm going to wait until I'm back at college with reliable internet access to post any new downloads. Don't worry, it'll be worth the wait. I've made a new SMiLE mix, hopefully better sounding than my last one (sorry about all that reverb-I know its made my ears ring pretty bad). At any rate, it will be quite an interesting listen. Look forward to that, and a lot more good stuff, probably starting the last week of January. Then it will be back to regular updates again. I may start periodically posting more "cool band alerts" like I did with Camera Obscura. If any of the links are down I will fix them after I come back to the blog full time. Happy SMiLEing, folks!!
