After wowing international audiences with The Raid 2, Indonesia hits another homerun with The Mo Brothers’ Killers (2014) – it’s bloody hands across the waters as a Japanese serial killer eggs on an Indonesian vigilante. Stephen Tan reviews.

Coming from South-east Asia, there is much to be impressed about in The Mo Brothers’ Killers (2014), an Indonesia-Japan effort that is not shy about violence, blood and gore.

In the film’s opening minutes, a woman is chased through the woods and caught. She has a plastic bag over the head and is strapped to a chair. The camera records what Nomura does – he bashes the woman’s head with the hammer; removes the plastic bag and watches the life drain out of her. In this age of the internet, Nomura uploads videos of his victims’ death throes. If there were no snuff videos, Nomura would have invented them.

BBC In Concert 1971 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the TV Centre, BBC, London, UK, 1971. (BBC In Concert TV broadcast on February 23, 1971.) Excellent radio broadcast.

The Harvest album would only be released in February 1972 and there was a time when Neil Young was still trying to get a handle on “new” songs such as Old Man and even Heart Of Gold.

This show previously appeared on the Broken Arrow boot (DVDs of the BBC In Concert show have been in circulation among fans for a long while now) but these tracks came from a BBC broadcast on July 24, 2014.

Santa Monica 1976 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Santa Monica Civic Center, Santa Monica, CA; March 6, 1976. Very good FM broadcast.

In the liner notes to Portrait – The Music of Dan Fogelberg from 1972-1997, Paul Zollo wrote: “Hitting the road in 1974 with Fool’s Gold, a young band from Illinois, [Dan Fogelberg] toured for the next two years. “Suddenly we were rock stars. These were heady days. We were soaking it up, and thought we were more important than we were. But really we were just these kids from Illinois with high voices.”

But it was Nether Lands in 1977 that Fogelberg felt was a critical album. He said: “When I made Nether Lands, I felt that I had finally made a grown up record. That I wasn’t a kid anymore, and that I was finding my own voice as a writer.”

According to an AP article, Fogelberg’s music was powerful in its simplicity. He did not rely on the volume of his voice to convey his emotions; instead, they came through in his soft, tender delivery and his poignant lyrics. Songs like “Same Old Lang Syne,” in which a man reminisces after meeting an old girlfriend by chance during the holidays, became classics not only for his performance, but also for their engaging story lines. Later in his career, he would write material that focused on the state of the environment, an issue close to his heart. In 2007, Fogelberg died of cancer. He was 56.

We’ve been manufacturing without a license in our homes for 30 years now. It’s about to go physical. Maybe that will wake legislators up to the bigger picture. If not, we’re in for something much worse. By Rick Falkvinge.

We’ve been manufacturing our own copies of knowledge and culture without a license for quite some time now, a practice known first as mixtaping and then as file-sharing.

Home mass manufacturing of copies of culture and knowledge started some time in the 1980s with the Cassette Tape, the first widely available self-contained unit capable of recording music. It made the entire copyright industry go up in arms and demand “compensation” for activities that were not covered by their manufacturing monopoly, which is why we now pay protection money to the copyright industry in many countries for everything from cellphones to games consoles.

Long Beach 1970 [Flying M Productions, 2CD]
Live at The Arena, Long Beach, CA; April 19, 1970. Fairly good audience recording.

Here’s one for the collectors, especially those who bought the “My God” vinyl way back when. The tracks My God and Sossity, You’re A Woman were previously released on “My GOD” (ATHAP ASCAN Records MG 1-A).

As music fan kneesfudd said: “Back then, when we didn’t have millions of titles to choose from in our genre of choice, boot vinyl was the lifeblood which supplemented the regular collection. Really looked forward to those catalogs in the mail.”

Tokyo 1979 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Budokan, Tokyo, Japan; November 13, 1979. Very good soundboard/radio broadcast?

On April 1, 1984, Marvin Gaye was shot dead by his father following an altercation with his father after he intervened in an argument between his parents. He was 44.

For many, Marvin Gaye’s career peaked in the ’70s with the What’s Going On (1971) and Let’s Get It On (1973) albums. While these albums continue to keep him in the public eye (Britain’s NME were champions of these albums), Gaye’s career never soared and he even moved to Europe for a while, which also helped him cleaned up his drug use. Sexual Healing in 1982, with the Sexual Healing single, marked a return to form for Gaye, which unfortunately ended in 1984.

KATE BUSH – LONDON 2014 (Opening Night)

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Friday 5 September 2014 at

Before the Dawn
London 2014 [no label, 3CD]
Live at the Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith, London, UK; August 26, 2014. Very good audience recording.

Kate Bush live… it’s been 35 years. Altogether, Kate Bush will be performing 22 shows at the Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith from August 26 to October 1.

NME: 35 Years Was Well Worth The Wait

“Where’ve you been?” Kate Bush asks nonchalantly, beaming widely as the second standing ovation of the night greets the close of her first song, ‘Lily’. Thirty-five long years in the waiting and, at first, incredible as it was to even believe it was happening, it seemed as if Kate Bush’s legendary reluctance to tour had made for a somewhat more restrained show than the all-singing, all-dancing, all-acting extravaganza that was 1979’s The Tour of Life. Bush found that experience so exhausting that she more than once had to be carried offstage.

Redmond 2014 [no label, 2CD]
Live at Marymoor Park, Redmond, WA; August 20, 2014. Fairly to very good audience recording.

Beck has long outworn his slacker and “loser” comparisons but it is still a bit ironical that, currently, it is his cover of Rod Stewart’s Da Ya Think I’m Sexy (with Jenny Lewis) that is getting the buzz. His latest release, Morning Phase, is said to be a companion piece to his 2002 album, Sea Change. Given this “retrospective” look on Morning Phase, has Beck reached a critical juncture in his music?

Live, Beck still has the ability to toss out quips at will: “Thanks for coming out tonight. This is one of the most picturesque gigs of the year that we’ve done…” “If you wanna open up that window on the side of your head, say ‘Hell yes!’” And if you thought the Bee Gees (circa Lying Eyes) went away, give Blue Moon a spin.

There must be a certain sense of achievement when Beck spoke towards the end of Loser: “The first time I ever played this song in Seattle, I didn’t even have a band, I just had a boombox, and I just sang the song with a boombox…”

Thanks to toolshirt who recorded and shared the show at Dime.

New York 2014 [no label, 2CD]
More Fun In The New World – complete album

All X original members: Exene Cervenka, John Doe, Billy Zoom & DJ Bonebrake will be performing!
4 albums. 4 nights.

Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? X will be performing a couple new tricks this year. With our 4 album plays in LA, NYC, Chicago and Cleveland the band will be performing their first four records in their entirety with guest musicians helping the band to recreate live the recorded versions of their songs. Some of the songs have never been performed live by the original lineup. –

Thanks to larryrulz for recording and sharing the show at Dime.

larryrulz noted: “One of my favorite albums of all time from start to finish… amazing! This is a very intimate venue with good acoustics. The band was loud as hell but there was minimal distortion. The vocals were often too low in the mix. There is a single live level adjustment at the beginning of track 01. Overall, this is an excellent recording.”

Michael Brenner on the futility of American ad hoc policy-making by press conference.

The grotesque beheading of James Foley is stirring passions in Washington policy circles. From the highest levels of the Obama administration to the media pundits, emotions are flaring over what the United States should/could do. [Journalist James Foley was killed on August 19, 2014.]

The act in itself has changed nothing insofar as ISIS’ threat to the United States and its significance for Middle East politics are concerned. It is the mood that has been transformed. Irresistible impulse is displacing cool deliberation.
