Ultimate stoner playlist, huh, Barry?
The top of any such list would have to be “White Punks On Dope” by The Tubes (T.R.A.S.H. version). Methinks that if the original Mothers of Invention were to have emerged in San Francisco in early seventies instead they would’ve probably been The Tubes.
How’s that for some lukewarm poop?
P.S. To comment on metafilter, you gotta first pay five bucks (now there’s lukewarm poop if I’ve ever seen it, or smelled it)!
“Methinks that if the original Mothers of Invention were to have emerged in San Francisco in early seventies instead they wouldâ€™ve probably been The Tubes”
Never really thought about that, but it’s true! The first Tubes album with ‘White Punks’ ‘Mondo Bondage’ and my personal fave ‘Haloes’ was very Zappa-esque. P.S. Beefheart was on their 3rd album ‘Now’ and they also covered his ‘My Head Is My Only House..’!
Damn that sucks (the $$$$$ thing) so I’m putting my stoner music list here instead…
(got a hell of a hangover, drinking all Barry’s beer last night! – sorry, I promise to restock your cyberfridge!)
brecht/weill – mackie messer (1930s recording)
swans – feel happiness (live)
zappa – outside now (YCDTOSA 4 version)
pink floyd – dogs
white noise – here come the fleas
tom waits – in the neighbourhood
slint – good morning captain
syd barrett – long gone
mothers of invention – uncle meat/king kong (off The Ark)
kristen kersh – your ghost
glen branca – symphony 10, 2nd movement
julian cope – starcar
That’d keep a person out of mischief for an hour or two…
Oh yeah, Adrian Belew is the dude!!
I have an account at metafilter, so keep your lists coming! I might post it there if it’s big enough. :)
Giantalb, lists can be trly & very instructive. Frankly speaking I’ve never heard about Glenn Branca. Thanks for informing us/me. He is a border crosser. Those people are always amongst the most interesting.
By the way, giantalb, a ( possible- I don’t know if you know ) compensation for your kind offer, there’s http://improvisingguitar.blogspot.com/ . There you can find a long list of daring, courageous innovative guitarists ( under ” guitarists” down on the right hand side).

KUR & others,
This blog is truly getting very mature in a cosy way. It’s partly about the initial bloggers mind being restored: providing each other with useful info. Great.
Now ” funny”. Unless KUR kindly invites all contributors to stop posting, KUR et all risk recieving a honorary degree ( honiris causa or the like). Very good. Unfortunately – so far – there’s no music dpt from an university focussing on zappology. Might be in the coming.
Yea, yea, yea! KUR is consistently BOSS.
Correct! P.S. Listen to the Tubes ‘Remote Control’
Jamez, if you want some Zappa-esque Tube action, just check this following link out The song only ever appeared on The Dawn of The Tubes, a really rare track: “Baby, Your Face Is Mutated.”
Thanks urbangraffito! That’s the first time I heard that track as I don’t have ‘Dawn Of The Tubes’ (I think it’s a collection of demos they recorded before they signed with a major record label). Awesome! P.S. Also clicked on You Tube Tube videos and saw a live version of Beefheart’s ‘Gimme Dat Harp’ from the Plalce of Arts in’77 with Fee doin’ his best Beefheart drawl! P.P.S. Wish Sputnik would rejoin ’em!
P.P.P.S. If only Zappa could have colloborated with them…
