29 Jan 2008, 18:47 by richtaylor521Since I still need to scribe some write-ups for some of the albums on my best of ‘07 list, I figured I’d post this.
Question marks (?) indicate artists that have stated they’re writing new material, but an ‘08 release is not definite; although, at an educated guess- I’d say an ‘08 release is likely.
Bold font are albums I’m looking forward to. Bold font plus red are albums I’m really looking forward to.
If there’s any mistakes please let me know. Feel free to post releases I’ve missed, also.

7 Jun 2007, 00:30 by ntkbassistI didn't know they (Television) were still around, but now it seems Richard Lloyd is leaving, breaking up the band, after a farewell show June 16th. That is, if he recovers from the pneumonia that put him in intensive care.
I can't make it. I'll miss them.
You were amazing.
Marquee Moon and Elevation are two of the greatest songs ever written.

It is a sad day for my city. This afternoon I took the subway down to the East Village to look at CBGBs as a functional entity one last time. There was already quite a large amount of people gathered. One older woman yelled over to me "We're all Devo, say it one more time before we shut this place down!" It made sense, I was wearing my Devo sweatshirt, but it freaked me out.
I had to get out of there pretty quickly, the entire experience was sad and strange. I have very mixed feelings about that club closing. The scene that was there long ago has long since vacated. That club has been existing on reputation only for about twenty years. However, if I think about all the energy that was once there, the people that found themselves there, and the influences those people have had on my life, I can't help but be pretty sad about the entire thing.
It is very dangerous and unhealthy to be wistful about places. …
11 Oct 2006, 17:36 by neilbombdAs I mentioned Peter Laughner in my last journal entry, I thought I'd write a post about him for anyone who isn't familiar with his solo output. His story is pretty tragic, really. Most of us will know of him through his involvement with Rocket From The Tombs, the proto-Ubu band from which Pere Ubu and Dead Boys sprang from. He was on the first couple of Pere Ubu singles - you can read his liner notes to 30 Seconds Over Tokyo/Heart Of Darkness on this brill site - but sadly he and the band parted ways before the first full-length release. David Thomas, of course, always refuses to talk about him, but it's well known that Laughner had serious drink and drug problems. In fact, his problems were so serious that Lester Bangs eventually told his old mate to keep away from him, as he believed he was committing a slow suicide. Laughner was also reportedly getting something of a fascination for hand-guns...
These issues forced his departure from Pere Ubu although one of his greatest songs, Life Stinks, made it onto The Modern Dance. …
28 Jul 2006, 19:14 by neilbombdJust a bunch of my favourite YouTube videos...
My favourites page is here, should you want it.
Sadly, I've had to edit out some ace Pere Ubu vids as they're currently flipping their wig about people uploading to YouTube without first seeking permission - article here. However, I can steer you to a rather wonderful article by David Thomas called "Ghoulardi - Lessons in Mayhem from the 1st Age of Punk" - and, amazingly, there's even a clip of Ghoulardi on YouTube. Tangenetially connected, Richard Lloyd is now playing with the resurrected "Rocket From The Tombs", but here's some Television clips:
Pretty amazing couple of clips:
Tom Verlaine teaching Richard Hell Venus! - part two
Animal Collective are a band who finally seem to be getting the recognition they deserve...they realy are one of the most startingly original and inventive acts around. Finding these two clips at 4am in the morning made my entire week, if not my month. …
