This album is a split demo of two local Newcastle bands. FMD, are an awesone hard core band. A mate of mines cousin plays guitar for them so that is how I first discovered them. Their heavy as hell, and they got attitude. I've seen em live and they rip through their songs like the gods that they are. Arms Reach (the other band) kick just as much arse. If you come from Newcastle area and you see either of these bands are playing somewhere, go see em, they rule.
Fav Songs - FMD - Opinionated, Message of Hate. Arms Reach - Foundation
A lot of people don't like this album, say it is a sell out and such things. Well who cares, it sounds awesome. Faster and tighter than anything else I've heard.
Fav Songs - Punk Rock Song, The Gray Race
Another sick ass punk album. This one contains an array of BR songs from their very roots until the albums release. It also has a few good live tracks thrown in.
Fav Songs - Definatly No Direction and I Want to Conquer the World
Fav Lyric - "I want to conquer the world and give all the idiots a brand new religion".
Their newest album but not their best. This album is more hip hoppish then the others, but it is still very good.
Fav Songs - Song for the man,Intergalactic, I don't know
Ben Harpers first album. Beautiful, mellow music. Awesome tunes just to sit back and vege out to. Talk to your mates and shit like that.
Fav Song - The Three of Us, Momma's Got A Girlfriend Now
A great ska/hardcore band from Queensland. A cool bunch of guys, met them all after they played at my uni in Armidale. They play a very brass filled set with chunky guitars and great whiny vocals.
Fav Songs - My Truck Won't Start, Diamond Street
So a lot of people don't like Dylan. Personally, i love the guy. He is the master. He has a voice that makes you anger, laugh and cry, all at once.
Fav Songs - All Along the Watchtower, Ballad of a thin man
This is an Aussie compilation of punk/hardcore. Another great release featuring the likes of MYC, Toe to Toe, Game Over, Mindsnare and Crank. Not for the faint hearted.
Fav Song - Beer Goggles - I love You Beer
I came across this band through Korn. A mate told me that if I liked Korn, then I would love Coal Chamber, and I do. This album is brilliant. The switch between the mellow, trippy vocal to the harsh, hateful noise is brilliant. The guitar is great and the bass kicks arse. Also, the film clip for Loco is heaps trippy. Love the ice-cream truck guy.
Fav Songs - Bradley, Loco, Big Truck, Sway.
This is definatly the greatest Kennedy album ever and I am blessed with owning it on vinyl. It's funny, shocking and political all in the space of one album. It's pure brilliance.
Fav songs - I Kill Children. Emotion. Holiday in Cambodia
Refer to below
Fav Song - Stars and Stripes of Corruption
Hmmm, what can I say except, they ruled, they still rule and they always will rule. One of those bands you either love or hate, and you guessed it. I love em. Fast tinny guitars and Jello's awesome voice make this album rock.(I don't think that last sentence makes sense.)
This is my 2nd fav FNM recording. Older FNM, when Chuck still sung and Jimmy still ruled. I love the vocal sound of this album. Roddy works wonders with his keyboard.
Fav songs - We Care A Lot, Jim
This is my fav Faith album. Lots of die hard FNM fans don't like this, well I say bollocks to 'em. Cause I love it. It's just so......creepy. Good shit
Fav Song - A Small Victory, Midnight Cowboy
This is without a doubt the best Frenzal album ever released. It's fast, harsh and the bass rumbles deep within you. It rocks.
Fav Songs - Punch in the face, Disappointment, Uncle Ken, Ben
Fav Lyric - We don't want to work to hard, Just accept the way we are, Cause this disappointment is tearing us apart.
My all time fav band. Good old aussie punk. this album isn't as harsh as their previous efforts but it still kicks arse.
Fav Songs - The ballad of tim webster, I got the fuck kicked out of me by constable care.
Fav Lyric - Genitals are funny. (enough said)
More Aussie rock. This is a three song single that I bought in 1994. It's awesome, I love it, good old guitar driven rock n roll.
Fav songs - The BeJesus, South of my Lips, Special K
I bought this ags ago just so I coud listen to F.O.D. The rest of the album pretty much sucks.
Fav Song - F.O.D
Okay, another album some people will laugh at. Deep in my heart, their will always be a place for good old gunners. Anyway, back to the task at hand. This album combines both Gunners rock style as well as their lovely ballads. Also, Alcie Cooper sings on one song. Good shit!
Fav Song - Back Off Bitch, Garden of Eden
Fav Lyric - Looks of an angel, love of a witch
I love it, thats all i can say.
Fav Song - Breakdown, Estranged
Fav Lyric - Everybody darling sometimes bites the hand that feeds
I kinda like this album. They do a bit of justice to some of these punk greats. The main draw card is the secret cover of a Charlie Manson song. It's a beautiful song.
Fav Song - Ain't It Fun, the charlie song
Fav Lyric - You can tell those lies baby but your only fooling you
This a good album. It catches everything that Gunners where. A live band. Great versions of Move To the City and Estranged
Okay, people say that Kurt wrote this, not Courtney and all that other shit. Well, once again, who cares. As long as it sounds good who cares. This album is full of noisey punk attutde seperated by ballad style hurt songs. A very emotional album, with what seem like references to Kurts death even though the ablum was written before his death. Hmmm, kinda freaky
Fav Songs - Violet, Doll Parts, I Think That I Would Die
The only rap album that I own and have ever owned. I just really grooved to this album. The words just roll along beautifully. It's good ass Ice T after Bodycount. The only other Ice T song I like that isn't on this album is colours. Anyone seen that movie?
Fav Song - Thats How I'm Living, Ain't A Damn thing Changed, It's On
Fav Lyric - Cops hate kids and kids hate cops, Cops kill kids with warning shots
This Hendrix album kicks arse. Its how Hendrix should be heard... live and loud. It's got an awesome cover of Dylan's Like a Rolling Stone on it
Fav Song - Like A Rolling Stone, Hey Joe, Purple Haze
I love Jimi. He is and always will be the guitar player that I admire most. This album spans from the precision of Little Wing to the fat chunky chords of Voodoo Chile. Breathtaking stuff.
Fav Songs - Wind Cries Mary, Voodoo Chile, Castles in the Sand
Before I start, I am not a spooky kid. I just like Manson's music and believe that he has a good message. I don't cut myself or wear ladies underwear. I love this album's ability to change from being full on to mellow to down right scary. This is music to fear. Anyway, say what you like, but make sure you 'listen' to it before you pass judgement.
Fav song - Man That You Fear
Okay, this album probably looks a bit out of place, but I like it. It's not as good as count down to exicution, but I still ike it.
Fav Songs - A Tout Le Monde, Blood of Heroes
Fav Lyric - In a dream I cannot see, Tangeld abbstract fallacy, Random turmoil builds in me, I'm addicted to chaos.
A good album from Megadeth.
All I can say is - This guy rocks. He always will rocks. Maybe his gay, maybe he isn't. Who cares, he dances good and he rules.
This is the only ministry album I own and the only one I have ever heard in full. It is definatly in your face music, with it's wall of noise, unusual beat patterns and the unnerving vocal sound. Al's screeching vocal twitches at the back of your mind. Definatly music to kill by.
Fav songs - Game Show, The Fall, Useless
One of the most atmospheric albums I own. I love Nick and will always have a spot for anything that he does. This album is full of death and mournig, done in a way that only Nick could do it.
Fav Songs - The Curse of Millhaven, Stagger Lee, Song of Joy
Fav Lyric - The last thing she sadi before the cops pronounced her dead, Was my killer is Loreta and she lives across the street.
Definatly 5 stars
This is probably the best of album ever made. It spans the Bad Seeds career. From their humble beginings to now. It also has a free nine song live cd with it which is awesome.
Fav Songs - The Carny, Red Right Hand, Into My Arms, The Weeping Song, The Ship Song
Fav Lyric - Your just micrcscopic gogs in his catastrophic plan, Guided and directed by his red right hand
My favourite of all Nirvana albums. It's Kurt in his essence, he should of made another 3 albums like this one. It's harsh, fast and the bass lines kick arse, all topped off with a brilliant cover of Love Buzz. A truly noisy, but beautiful album.
Fav Songs - School, Negative Creep, Love Buzz
This is another of my all time fav albums. It is indescribable because of the many different moods it potrays. Even though I've had it for four years, I still hear new sounds when I listen to it. Trent's lyrics are amazing and close to the heart. A truly beautiful recording.
Fav Lyric - He sewed his eyes shut because he was afraid to see. He dreamed a god up and called it christianity
Fav Songs - Hurt, Heresy, Eraser, Ruiner, The Becoming
Another wonderful album by Trent. See above for reasons why.
Fav Lyric - I put my faith in God and my trust in you, Now there's nothing more fucked up that i could do.
Don't open your eyes you won't like what you see,
The blind have been blessed with security.
Fav Songs - Wish, Happiness in Slavery, Help Me I Am In Hell.
Another great release. Full hard and fast punk ditty's form the funny to the political.
Fav Songs - Punk Guy
NoFx are a group of fun loving chappies who I adore. They were one of the first punk bands I ever heard so I will always have a place for them. This album in fast and tight. Beautiful vocals once again from Fat Mike and another funny inner sleeve. The songs rule, short 3 minute punk dittys, containing trumpet and even glockenspeil.
Fav Songs - Release the Hostages, August 8th, Drop the World, The Black and White.
Like waking up from a fucked up dream, Suddenly everythings looking good, Been no permenant damage done, Yeah august 8th came right when it should.
Okay, as I explained above NoFx are very dear to my heart and this recording is no exception. I love the fact that it's kind of harder then Heavy petting Zoo, but it also has lots of Ska type influence woven into it's short punky dittys. I love it.
Fav Songs - Flogging A Dead Horse, Kill The Rock Star, Its My Job To Keep Punk Rock Elite.
Okay, it's fast, tight, and really melodic. I love it. This album is a real good listen. All topped off with a cover of a fav irish rebel song of mine 'the fields of athenry'.
Fav Songs - Invincible, Revenge, Fields Of Anthenry
Fav Lyric - Pretend your invincible, No one can save you from yourself, Pretend you a super hero, Fucking zero, Try to save the world.
This is one of the heaviest, most intense albums I have ever heard. 4 years since it's release and I'm still to hear something to equal it's power. It contains a beautiful cover of a 'Planet Caravan' by Black Sabbath. It's mellow and soothing, just what you need after 11 songs of Fuck You attitude.
Favs - Planet Caravan, Becoming, Throes Of Rejection.
Fav Lyric - We've grown into a monster. An arrogant explosive mother fuck. Hard as a rock, Shut like a lock
5 aggresive stars
This is a fabulous album. A band that will never lose its relevence. A double CD set with each song running into each other forming 90 minutes of pure musical ecstacy. A must for all fans.
Fav Songs - The Trial, Comfortably Numb
This is one of my all time favourite albums. 3 Canadian chappies. Drums, Bass, Gutiar. It's quirky, it's political and it's punk. What else could you ask for? Topics range from Sexism to Patriotism to religion and to Ska Sucking. Ends with a beautiful rendition of a cheap trick song(i think it is anyway)
Fav Song - Every single one
Fav Lyrics - Take a look at your promised land, Your deed is the gun in your hand.
My father told me 'Son it's futile to resist. you can topple ideology but not the armies they enlist.
5 punky stars
What can I say. Bassy, Funky,Funny and live to boot. An awesome album. It's Primus' first album from back in '89 when Tim Alexander still hit the skins.
Fav songs - Frizzle Fry, John The Fisherman, Pressman.
Fav Lyric - When I grow up I want to be, Another harvester of the sea.
5 big bassy stars.
A cheap quality release by Epitaph featuring Bad Religion, Poison Idea, NoFx and T.S.O.L
Fav Songs - Poison Idead - Just To Get Away, SNFU - Don't Have A Cow
Okay, you can say I'm not a true fan b/c I own a best of. Well, i wasn't born when they were at their prime so go figure. These guys rule, who else could write songs about sniffing glue, punk girls and other ridiculus topics and get away with it. Hmmm...no one. The Ramones rule and thats all there is to say about it.
Fav Song - Now I wanna sniff some glue, I don't want to walk around with you.
This album just reeks of The Clash. Since I love The Clash, I love this album. It packs out a punch and is full of punk attitude. Tims vocal/snarl is awesome, I just can't get enough of it. Anyway, a good album that goes back to the roots of punk, but isn't afraid to add thier little bit on the way. Warning, not just another 'lets be the clash band'.
Fav Songs - Ruby Soho, Journey to the End, Daly City Train
Fav Lyric - Some men are in prison, even though they walk the streets at night. Other men who got the lockdown, are free as a bird in flight.
Everyones gotta have a place for the chilli peppers. This album spans their career from 1984 - 1991 and shows exactly what the RHCP are all about. Contains both a Stevie Wonder cover and a Jimi cover.
Fav Songs - True Men Don't Kill Coyotes, Catholic School Girls Rule (thats for you shelly. my good little catholic girl)
A good album. Rollins is just a god. His witty, but biting lyrics really hit home. Although the album lacks something in some songs this is quickly forgotten.
Fav songs - Disconnect, Civilised, Liar
Fav Lyric - You gotta have a gun then your just a another pig to me.
Okay, so their are losers themselves. But this album still kinda rocks. The first 6 or 7 songs are pretty good. Once again, good old aussie rock straight from Newcastle.
Fav Songs - Faultline, Suicdal Dream
Another agressive, noisy album from Slayer. It's fast, contains awesome riffs and solos and brilliant lyrics, but it lacks strength in some places. More down to earth then the previous Slayer albums
Fav Songs - 213, Fictional Reality
Fav Lyric - Suicidal heirachy racing in reverse, Everything thats done today will be tomorrows curse.
Good old Aussie Angst rock. This album contains various styles of music - from bluesy rock to mellow ballads to a feeble attempt at hardcore. I've always supported Aussie but this album just doesn't cut it. They should stick to the bluesy rock and trippy ballads.
Fav songs - A note from the edge, Covet, Tear Me Up.
Another great Aussie rock band, but unlike Suiciety, Sunfish pull of the bluesy ballad feel. A great moody three piece
Fav Songs - The Last One, Difference
I bought this years ago, hell so long ago I can't even remember when I actually got it. Anyway, I love it. Terence's voice is beautiful, soothing and mellow. I listen to it when ever I get really angry cause it calms me down heaps. If you havn't got it, get it. Its really good.
Fav Songs - If You All Get To Heaven, Sign Your Name
A two cd set that contains everything that they released up until Tao on it. Including the 'Election Night' and the 'Fuck Seattle This is Sydney' EPs
This album totally blew me away. Unlike 90% of the owners of this album I had heard Undertow and Opiate. I knew there were other albums, I'd grooved to Prison Sex and Part of Me and was still in awe at the brilliance of Floods. But still, This album blew me away, the raw emotion that this album contains is phenominal. One moment it is hateful, the next you want to cry in pity for James and his twisted lyrics. Keep the good stuff coming in guys.
Fav Songs - Eulogy, Anemia, Intermission
Fav Lyric - Not all martyrs see divinity, But at least you tried.
Wagner, one of the greatest german composers. Definatly the best in my opinion. Get this album. Hell, get any Wagenr album that you can get your hands on. It's awesome.
Fav Song - Ride of the Valkyries
The only album I know of that has a board game featuring Leonard Nimnoy on the inside sleeve. Once again, good Aussie punk. This album is harsher than some of the other meanies albums. Finishes with an awesome ska piece. The only cd I know of that plays the whole cd again under a secret track.
Fav Songs - Wonderland, House of Bassinet, and the ska piece at the end.
This is a sort of a 'one more for the money' compilation put together by the band. I don't care as it has all of my favourite songs on it. People say the pistols suck, that they can't play, that Johnny can't sing. Well, wake up, thats what they were all about, it's the lyrics, the meesage that matters. No matter what anyone says, I love em.
Fav songs - Pretty Vacant, No Fun, Holidays in the Sun.
I bought this out of a bargin bin at the local music store. The album is brilliant. It cahnges from rock to blues to atmospheric Indian type music. Very good because it's different.
Fav Songs - Fire in the Head, Correspondences, Sister Awake.
Fav Lyric -
And on the walls shadows play twilight souls anguished ways lost adrift severed seas i await you come to me
