Whattya Listenin' to Wednesday - 11/10/10 (The Late Night Edition)

Sorry for the late post, gang. Morning was beyond my control, daytime a marathon and then I was featured tonight at an open mike gig. Good times on the latter, anyway...

Hope everybody's doing good out there. Had a hell of a chat with Jaz Coleman of Killing Joke last Saturday, in which he gave his extensive views of the world. A highly interesting chat, to say the least.

Here at The Metal Minute, we'll talk about Mini Mansions and the new Dio double live disc from Castle Donnington, plus a new Twisted Sister DVD featuring their recent Wacken performance. We'll also have a look at Ozzy's latest book, The Wit and Wisdom of Ozzy Osbourne, plus plenty of other fun stuff.

Calling it a night, folks, so bring out your spins if you're still lurking about...

HH, I've yet to spin Edisun, but it's in the pile.

cjk, I assume the Crowes rocked it out...great list...I'm one of the few who really support GUP even though a lot of debate of its merits arise through the fan contingency. I prefer the earlier Rush albums to GUP, but for a brief moment that was my favorite albums of theirs. I like that BB jam album a lot...could've been cooler, but hey, them taking a timeout as one of the most interesting rap acts out there was a nice bit of fresh air. Yeah, they the funk jam album before, but this one was better done.

Mark, have a nice ride with Turbo? :) Where'd you get that Death DVD? Didn't even know abou that. Very cool.

Jeff, Floyd and Tull is some time well-spent, yeppers.

Metal Mark said...

Ray-I was wondering if Turbo was realy worse than Nostradamus so I gave Turbo a play. Still need to listen to Nostradamus and am trying to prepare myself for the torture that will entail. I'll write up the results of this challenge once I figure out which is worse.
I got the Death DVD from Clint at MVD. Ask for the new Tank CD too.

Ray Van Horn, Jr. said...

cool, will do...that Priest bash-up ought to be a funny read

bob_vinyl said...

Hey, at least Turbo is shorter! With albums that bad, the length of the bad experience has to be considered.

Metal Mark said...

Bob-That's definitely one of the top reasons why Turbo may be a better album. If I must be tortured at keep the length of the pain as short as possible.

ray, the Crowes show was great. definitely more of jam-oriented first hour followed by a virtual hit parade in the second hour. some folks were disappointed by the fact that they only played for 2 hours instead of 3 like they had been doing most of this tour, but i thought it was a solid albeit different show for them.
