I have started buying some compilations from Numero Group. They go find the lost releases from bands that help establish a scene but never made it big.

This album, Lone Star Lowlands, covers a forgotten rock scene in Beaumont in the 60s and 70s. It’s really good stuff.


breakaway stocks all the numero group releases, most of them are really good.

What Numero and other boutique reissue or compilation labels release is just miles away from the stuff that could be more accurately described as "nostalgic". Its like you have some music fans who listen to the same music from their teenage years and keep listening to it over and over again. Then you have other music obsessive types who are constantly listening to something different and moving on and discovering things that are new to them. Numero goes to great lengths to get their licensing and other legal things in order and get the reissues done the right way. Its for the type of music obsessive for whom the past is almost infinite.

Most of the US sourced copies of the best film score ever sound like ass (most were made from a damaged tape and have a ton of distortion). I have one that is okay, but even for being NM it isn’t the quietest. A Japanese copy finally showed up from a US seller for under median so I grabbed it, and I’m loving it.

This version of the album cover also kicks the shit out of the US one.

Went to Seattle last weekend for my pilgrimage to the mother ship.

Went to Easy Street Records in West Seattle. Known for the Mother Love Bone mural painted by Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament



Procured vinyl



We stayed in the Belltown area and stopped by a record store called Singles Going Steady. They specialize in punk. Talked to the owner, Byron, for a while. He said Mike McCready regularly drops in weekly on Tues or Thurs.

We did the grunge site tour the day before and drove by the Paramount. Picked up the Nirvana album of their live show there.


We went to the Sub Pop store in downtown-ish Seattle; it was underwhelming. I talked to the person working there, and he’s in a band called So Pitted. Apparently, he likes to make props and throw them into the audience during shows. He said one time he hit some guy in the head and was confused when the guy got pissed off. Doesn’t seem like a recipe for success to brain people at your show. But maybe it’s performance art that’s over my head.

Anyway, Sub Pop has a great store at the Seattle airport. I blew the rest of my wad there on t shirts, turntable slipmats and other assorted grunge paraphernalia. Only thing stopping me and the wife was available space in our carry ons.

Got the latest Built to Spill. I have tix to see them Dallas in Apr.

Did you go to the experience music project?

Short answer: yes.

Per the googles, this is now called MoPop. We went to MoPop and saw the nirvana and pearl jam exhibits. They’re both badass.  PJ exhibit is ending mid Apr.

This was all funded by Paul Allen. Respect.

KEXP is the radio station that promotes the local scene. They identify 12 bands each year and put on three shows with four bands playing each show. The third show was on the weekend I was in town. The show is free but I made a small donation. When I got there, I soon realized I was amongst high school kids and their parents. Awkward. That being said. They’re damn creative up there. Bands covered pop-grunge, disco, singer songwriter, and as best described as devo-esque performance art techo rock. The future of sound is in good hands.
