Alejandro Jodorowsky - El Topo OST (1970)

Writing about the work of Jodorowsky is a task in itself. Everyone has varying opinions on his work. So instead of getting hung up on what its all about lets just enjoy the jazzy, funk, acid trip score to his Surrealist, spaghetti western classic, El Topo.

Mayhem - Deathcrush (1987)

I really don't know why I am posting this. Its so obvious and known. I recently got a bit nostalgic and went digging through some old tapes and found a few demo's from some very early bands I was involved in. One of them used to cover the track "Deathcrush" and it got me wanting to listen to this record again.

Simply put, you should know this record by now. Its been around some time. Raw, noisy, evil infected black metal made by a bunch of kids who thought they had no future. Shame it panned out so well for them.

Hall & Oates - Private Eyes (1981)

Its been a while since I last posted on here, I've been busy. End of. We all know the recent events that are going to impact the world of blogging, so lets just enjoy what we do for the time being.

Today's post is the awesome 1981 album by the golden touch, liquid smooth vocal rapists Daryl Hall & John Oates, otherwise known as Hall & Oates.
Private Eyes features their best selection of songs in my opinion. Every track is sure fire gold, assimilating R&B, soul, jazz and rock into simple, radio friendly bursts of pop. "Head Above Water" is the best unused pump-up/montage track as well.

In other news I have recently took up posting over at the might Illogical Contraption. If you dig death metal, conspiracy theories, awesome stuff and futuristic shit then its well worth a read.
