If you've ever enjoyed the strange jazz influenced guitar sounds infused into Wilco's last album Sky Blue Sky, you're already well aware of Nels Cline. In the mid-to-late 90's the Nels Cline Trio recorded 3 great (though yes, slightly obscure) albums - Ground, Chest & Sad. Together they represent a great period in Nels' guitar work. His very unique strumming has also been heard on some great projects over the years with Mike Watt, Thurston Moore and plenty more too....

Download part of the track 'Bath' from the 1996 album Chest.

Jacob momentarily quit the band this week, but then quickly realised (in the words of Francis Ford Coppola) it's hard to quit yourself. What are you supposed to say? "Jacob, I quit?" To celebrate his triumphant return to the stage(less) we're playing this Friday night, Dec. 5th - The Place @ 10:15...... Come for the grooves, stay for the live charming!

So if you've gotten your head around Coltrane's album 'A Love Supreme' but you're not sure where to head next (as these guys released 100 albums a year) 'Live At The Village Vanguard Again!' will definately push you to the next level of intensity without leaving you cold. This is the last album with his wife, Alice Coltrane playing some very dark piano alongside the rest of his expanded quartet.

So, looking somewhat insane here - but next time you see the face of Professor Robert Reich, make sure you tune into the spiel blurbing from his wide open mouth (and enjoy the nasally tones!). Standing all of 4'11" in stature and having a brain the size of a large watermelon, he's truly one of the littlest big men in the world today. Dig Deeper Here, and Even Deeper Here.

Did you know that there are constantly ultra cheap collections of National Geographic Magazines being sold on ebay (well, in Australia atleast). On multiple ocassions I've paid $20-$30 for 10+ years worth - insane. But, be sure to put them somewhere very prominent on your bookshelf, or you'll never end up spending any time with them. Dig Deeper Here.

Recently around 30 graphic art students worked on alternative artwork for Gallucci's 'You-Wrecker' album with the guidance of noted album cover people (and generous friends) Debaser. They had an exhibition, we played! (photo by Nathan Creber)

The BBC World Service (if you don't know) is a shortwave radio service, which means it can cover some very serious miles - hence the word 'World'. For instace, listening to the World Service was the only way the locals near Chernobyl knew there was a nuclear meltdown happening in '86 (the Soviet Govt. were quiet) and perhaps they should put some space between themselves and it! Check out the Documentary Downloads and Podcast.
