Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Thoughts On The New Jimi Hendrix Live From Maui Release

  • Oh, cool, he’s soloing.
  • Didn’t expect that.
  • Curveballer, that Jimi.
  • He’s just gonna solo for two sets, huh?
  • Jimi Hendrix is like Dune: I like the ripoffs better than the source.
  • No, wait.
  • He stopped soloing.
  • He’s talking.
  • Well, “talking.”
  • Jimi’s high as fuck and shouldn’t be allowed to introduce the tunes.
  • Mitch Mitchell’s still in the band, huh?
  • That’s a choice.
  • Oh, c’mon.
  • Kiss my ass, “Live” in Maui.
  • And, uh, yeah.
  • Jimi probably didn’t have much to do with the tapes post-1970.
  • I’m trying.
  • God, I’m trying.
  • NOPE, I still fucking hate Jimi Hendrix.
  • Hippie bullshit.
  • I’m gonna listen to The Residents sing about Elvis and Nazis.
  • NOPE, I don’t like this art school nonsense, either.
  • I’m gonna listen to the Grateful Fuckin’ Dead.

    Awwwwwwww . . . . .

    You had me all excited about your new-found love for The Rez there for a few beats . . .

    I guess The Dead will do.

      I watched the doc on them today, and enjoyed it.

      But I’m just not smart enough for The Residents.

        Too smart for Bad Company, not smart enough for the Residents..

        You’re probably TOO smart to get sucked into their world actually . . . It can be a helluva money pit, none of them nice Dead Heads sharing tapes and such.

        Their new one is (allegedly) a collection of songs originally recorded by an albino bluesman in their Louisiana hometown. It’s a good one. Fairly straightforward by their standards. Made my best of 2020 list over at my place, along with a bunch of other nonsense!

    If you’re looking for a happy medium between the residents and the Hendrix might I suggest a little solo Robert Wyatt:

    Neil found Sherman Oaks stifling, quite frankly
