This is actually Carl Kruger's post but he fell out of mood for posting it and the draft has been floating around for a month or so in our files. I heard the entire post a week ago and felt it was too good to be left unpublished- All credit goes whatsoever to Carl Kruger and if he wants me to take the post down I'll do it right away. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

    One has to say that that is a rather impressive list(claps politely). I like the picture too. That skate mix tape was really (most) excellent too. I was going to suggest Slayer for that one. Anything from Reign In Blood.

    i was gonna get around to posting this ... thanks moka :>)

    in general i'm not certain how familar people are with this most pure form of very early rock, naturaly everybody has heard brian setzer or rev horton, but the original stuff really stands on its own as classic americana;
    while everyone else was settling into their tract housing in the burbs and making babies like rabbits, the marginalized of society were underminding the mores of the proud nation via hooking its youth on the echo heavy, reverb drenched sounds of white hot rebellion. w00t!

    incidently, dead skin mask was my first slayer choice for the skate mix, reason being that was played ALOT way back when ...

    Carl, I don't think you have to worry about that. You can't beat Cris and Oum on early recording music no matter how hard you try.
    :D

    and carl,

    do you know we have a forum now?

    Phew, I thought you were going to get angry at me for posting it :) Do you fancy the picture I chose or would you like me to change it?

    Is it just me or are we having some sort of trouble with our post editor? Apparently this post wasn't saved in there and I can't edit it or view it.

    "You can't beat Cris and Oum on early recording music no matter how hard you try... "

    sounds like a challenge! in fact, i've amassed a good sized collection of recordings cataloging early americana; blues,
    yodeling, washboard and jug bands ... hmm, gives me a idea for a new post ...

    "Do you fancy the picture I chose or would you like me to change it?"

    it's pretty weird! dont change it!

    Hey.

    we should have a challange between Carl vs Cris&Oum.

    It'll be a fun post!

    maybe one or two track from each persons. I could even learn a thing or two about music history.

    email Chris and Oum maybe?

    not sure how a challenge would work in this context ... am putting together an americana post at the moment, will put up tonight /

    I can help set up the rule... *evil grin*

    Each has to explain why the song He/she select is "rock".

    The oldest recording wins.

    i like this post alot too!

    challenge post! ack! me and crishh are very non-competitive people, especially with music! I like the idea of a collab post instead or i like the idea of carl just keeping on with the style of his last 2 posts!
