favorites of 2002?
- Summer's starting, 2002 is just about half over, and I'm curious as to what
y'all have been listening to this year. My favorites so far, in case
they're not evident from previous posts, include:
Silkworm, _Italian Platinum_
Kelly Kessler, _The Salt of Your Skin_
Lonesome Bob, _Things Change_
Sinister Luck Ensemble, _Anniversary_
Tom Waits, _Blood Money_ & _Alice_ (both sound good on random play with the
Sinister Luck Ensemble disc)
Alejandro Escovedo, _By the Hand of the Father_
Boxstep, _By Now Even the Trees_
Jim Roll, _Inhabiting the Ball_
Elvis Costello, _When I Was Cruel_
Warren Zevon, _My Ride's Here_
Peter Jefferies, _Closed Circuit_
Paul Kelly, _Nothing But a Dream_
(These last two came out in late 2001, but I've listened to them a lot this
Plus these reissues:
Randy Newman, _Good Old Boys_
Rocket From the Tombs, _The Day the Earth Met Rocket From the Tombs_
Richard Hell, _Time_
Favorite concerts include the Friday night lineup at Twangfest, especially
the first four acts (Sovines, Kelly Hogan, Tommy Womack & Calvin Cooke's
Sacred Steel Ensemble -- the latter act blew me away to the extent that I
didn't really absorb finale James Intveld's set), Moviola and Boxstep
together in February, and Alejandro Escovedo's free show in downtown
Pittsburgh with Hector Munoz on drums for the last time.
How about you?
NP: Pere Ubu, _St. Arkansas_. Sounds like David Thomas has spent a lot of
time in a car lately...
