Whattya Listenin' to Wednesday - 11/17/10

Greetings, readers, hope this week finds you well. Windy, blustery, rainy over on my side of the world and I'm just now back in the saddle on the web after some system malfunctions, huzzah... I'm feeling like that bad boy lizard above stomped me good and left me some aftershocks.

As for Retaliate #1, I've had to make some adjustments and create new arrangements behind-the-scenes, but we should be ready to go quite shortly. I'm sure all you editors out there have had the debut issue pains and follies and this has been a memorable pre-launch for both good and bad reasons, but in the end, I hope to deliver you all a quality product in the end. I'm picking up guests for Retaliate #2 with Jaz Coleman of Killing Joke already interviewed and I've just tonight booked up John Stabb of Government Issue to talk about their upcoming reunion gig in Washington, DC. More guests to be confirmed, but first thing's first, right?

With the computer abuse, I lost a lot of valuable time on things, but expect more goodies to drop here at The Metal Minute. As always, thank you, good people. Like Dio, we rock...

The Ocean - Anthropocentric
Dio - Live at Donington 1983 & 1987
The Cars - Shake it Up
Gwar - Bloody Pit of Horror
David "Rock" Feinstein - Bitten by the Beast
Killing Joke - Absolute Dissent

Hank Williams - Turn Back The Years: The Essential Collection
Patsy Cline - The Definitive Collection
2562 - Aerial
A Place to Bury Strangers - Exploding Head (I loved their first album, but this one might be even better.)
As Mercenarias - O Come├žo Do Fim Do Mundo (This is an all-female Brazilian post-punk band that just had a comp released on Soul Jazz Records. I found it used at Sound Garden last week... major score!)
Dadawah - Peace and Love (Some crazy underground reggae record that just got re-issued. To me, this sounds like reggae filtered through A Love Supreme. Awesome stuff.)
Simon and Garfunkel - Sounds of Silence
Evil Nine - FabricLive.28
Promise Ring - 30° Everywhere

Chuck, I always like your lists...brings extra color to the palette here. I know of Dadawah but haven't sat down with them yet. As Mercenarias sounds quite promising too.

Mark, how current is your Bond theme album? It didn't get much hype, but I actually liked the newest Bond theme with Jack White and Alicia Keyes for Quantum. I'm not sure which theme I favor the most, View to a Kill, Goldfinger or Live or Let Die....Dr. No's theme is the most unique and ethnic, perhaps.

Looks like we've got some takers on The Ocean this week. Thoughts, gentlemen?
