Because why not? So here’s my “10 albums that made a lasting impression on you as a teenager” thing. I think I did this fairly recently, but what the hell. Rules are: only one per band/artist. Don’t take too long and don’t think. (I made my list of albums that were released when I was […]Read More That “10 teenage albums” thing
As I said in my previous post, Greg Humphreys and I spoke for about 2.5 hours earlier this year. I hadn’t spoken to him since 1993 when I interviewed him for the San Diego fanzine 360°. I’ve cut some of the small talk here and edited for clarity, but this is most of the conversation, […]Read More Greg Humphreys Lucks Out – Part 2 – The Interview
This Album Listening Club selection was chosen by the members of the Club (sign up here!) from the top 5 albums of 1985 as voted on by Slicing Up Eyeballs readers. The fine folks at Slicing Up Eyeballs were kind enough to go along with this crazy cross-blog crossover idea that I had. Thanks! 1985 was a watershed year […]Read More Album Listening Club – Meat Is Murder discussion
Time for another guest post here on Your Older Brother! Nathan Felix is here to tell us about Texas, Janis Joplin, Revolution Music, and his Older Brother – his mom. I do have an older brother but he didn’t have a huge impact on my musical tastes. We were close in age (2 years) and I […]Read More Mother’s Music and Revolution
It seems that every year I make this playlist for a new music service or a home playlist or something, and it always ends up a little different. I add a song here or there and leave some off ’cause I’m not feelin’ ’em anymore. This year, I’ll make two playlists, one for Spotify and […]Read More All Hallows’ Eve – The Playlist!
Driving Tape I Interesting date on this tape, seeing as how I didn’t turn 16 for a few more months. I was either eager to turn 16 & get my driver’s license, or I wanted music for driving around with my permit. I do recall listening to it plenty after I got my license. Lots […]Read More Juicy Tapes Vol. 3 – Driving Tape I
So, my sister got me these great cassette tape glasses as a gift, and they came with a grease pencil to write the name of the mix. This morning, I wrote down the name of one of my mix tapes from when I was a young lad and it occurred to me that I have […]Read More Juicy Tapes Vol. 1 – Mellow Damn Tape
My friend Jen tagged me with this on Facebook – “List the top ten albums that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t overthink or worry about them being “right” – just ones that touched you” It says to tag 10 people more, but I don’t like saddling people with a task or chore. […]Read More Top Ten
The other day, I found myself wanting to hear some Psychedelic Furs, so I put on Mirror Moves (1984) and I tweeted about it. That led somehow to me listening to The Smiths’ Meat Is Murder (1985), which in turn led me to listen to OMD’s Crush (1985). Naturally, Listen Like Thieves (1985) by INXS and The Cure’s The Head […]Read More 1985 – Best year for music, ever?
First – there’s no ThURGHsday post today because I’m working on what I hope will be a big splash for the next post & band in the movie. I’m really excited about it and, if it comes through, will hopefully give the series a lift. Second – you’ll notice that there are no pictures or […]Read More Photo linking & no ThURGHsday! today
