Mainliner, Dean McPhee & Old Million Eye are the latest artists to get reviewed over on our Features page. I won’t lie, the Mainliner review is a rambling mess that barely makes any coherent sense but they did just start selling recreational weed here in Arizona. Sorry but not sorry, that’s the flipside of hand-written reviews, no going back and correcting your mistakes.
The sexy news in is that on May 28th, those old beloveds Can are putting out a live album, “Live in Stuttgart 1975”, and that its the first in a new series. Its coming out on vinyl, CD and digital. Bring…it…..on
Always down with some moths and big speakers. Oh, and there’s a sneak peak on Youtube
Been reviewing again and posting them up on the Features page. There’s a video review of the cassette reissue of Royal Trux‘s wild “Twin Infinitives” album plus the written treatment for the new New Bums album and the new version of The KLF’s timeless classic “Chill Out”.
I actually prefer the new version. Sometimes I found the large snatches of other people’s songs distracting and the Van Halen stuff at the end meant you couldn’t drift off to it. Instead we now have we Virtual Reality remix of “What Time Is Love?” sneaking in there and its a much more natural fit.
The Was Ist Das? video review is back! It’s for “Trippin Music” by Nurse With Wound which IS a 2020 release BUT it made our end of year list so it would just be silly not to have a review of it. Makes me think, actually, lots of great albums come out and don’t get reviewed by me…..maybe I should do this more often? Super late album reviews?
So, the review is here but it has got me thinking….when I posted my end of year list, I had only reviewed 4/10 of the picks. Now, we are at 5/10. I think I’ve never been anything other than 10/10! So the 2020 project must continue….although there’s some absolutely storming 2021 stuff already…..either way, my resolve is firm….2021 is gonna have more review action than 2020!

I been writing reviews of stuff I love, despite the ever decreasing amount of time left after work and family have had their dues. All these reviews are now up and can be found on our Features page: http://www.wasistdas.co.uk/Features.htm
Won’t lie, the old lockdown has been a bit weird, especially for my pen, but these two beauts have woken it!
Probably helps that they both match my current moods. Anyway, you can find ’em both on our Features page, of course!
So the Nick LPs are here and looking/sounding good! Don’t take our word for it, though:
Raven Sings The Blues said it reminded them of “the buoyant tangle of guitar that’s rooted in Crazy Horse’s grit, Canned Heat’s heartbeat boogie, and Satana’s playful willingness to experiment with rhythm” and concluded ” Its a sunshine-scrubbed delight that keeps the listener on their toes”
Record Crates United wisely suggested “if you need a break from the doom and gloom from the outside world, just slap this record on your turntable and groove the night away”
Heads Lifestyle said “an impressive one-man band effort flush with crazy time changes and a deep jammy undercurrent of cosmic choogle”
There’s more great reviews too but I can’t find them right now and I need to go!
Latest release on our Bandcamp page is a special bundle of a special anniversary mix “Owl Temple Session” that’s actually a lossless remake of an old mix from 2011 made from low res mp3s. It comes encased in a tote bag and with a sticker. Cause its the anniversary year.
Get it here
Not really much of a one for nostalgia but I had fond memories of this mix and especially of the response from the few who had a copy. I never kept one for myself and the mix was lost between computers.
Just recently my friend Jonathan Dennis mentioned the mix and when he found out I didnt have it anymore, kindly did me a rip of the CD. I was blown away but couldn’t help wondering how much better it would sound if I made it from higher quality music files (most of it was stuff I’d been sent to review and especially back then the mp3s sent were often low quality).
So, I went back and redid it. It’s something I’m really proud of and I’m glad to share it as a free gift inside the anniversary tote bag.
