Emily’s new band, Myrrias.
/// Myrrias 1st show \
In The 70’s Canadian pop-prog band, Klaatu, was responsible for rumours that The Beatles had reformed and were secretly recording under that pseudonym. I don’t quite understand why, it’s pretty obvious it’s not the Beatles. Perhaps truly believing that The Beatles were done was just too much for some people to accept. Regardless, it’s an interesting album with heady arrangements and whimsical pop sensibilities.
Dave Davies’ guitar solo is sweet in this vid :)
Hey everyone! Our new music video for Rock ‘N’ Roll Rorschach is showing now at MTV Hive. It was directed by our friend Carrie Yotter and was inspired by all those chromakey videos from Beat Club in the 70’s. Get the record in the UK/EU Cardinal Fuzz or Sophomore Lounge in the USA.
I’m posting a song from Keith Richards Toronto 1977 bootleg made up of very downer country songs from a man very down.
The blog, A History of the Underground, does a great job explaining the circumstances surrounding the recordings - and you can even download it there.
"1976 was a dark time for Keith Richards and the Rolling Stones. They hadn’t released a great record since Exile on Main Street (1972) and their last attempt in the studio, Black and Blue (1976), was the worst album they had made to date. The Stone’s have a long history of drug busts, deportation, and operating in exile, but by the late seventies the joke was getting old. Keith Richard’s severe heroin habit was getting in the way of his creativity. Mick Jagger, who felt that Richards had lost it, had taken over most of the creative control of the band. This lowered the overall quality of their performances and put strains on rock and roll’s most famous songwriting duo."
"Apartment #9" was a Johnny Paycheck song about a rejected man who sits alone in an apartment shrouded in darkness hoping his ex-lover will forgive him and come back home.

Anyways hope you enjoy the track.
”As long as there have been humans, we have searched for our place in the cosmos. Where are we, who are we? We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star, lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people. We make our world significant by the courage of our questions, and by the depth of our answers.”
Today, 79 years ago, a man with a spectacular sense of wonder was born. Through his lifetime, he explained how the world works, encouraged people to learn new things, and to grasp the Universe as it really is. Other than being an astronomer, astrophysicist, cosmologist, author, science popularizer and science communicator in astronomy and natural sciences, he was simply a passionately curious human being.
I am often asked what got me so interested in science. It started when I got to know how enormous the Universe is. When I got to know that there are ungraspably lot of galaxies, each of which are composed of gas and dust and billions upon billions of stars. And that every star of these may be a sun to someone. Yet here, in some forgotten part of our ordinary home galaxy, on a tiny speck of rock and metal, life evolved. And all that I got to know thanks to this same man.
Happy birthday, Carl (November 9, 1934 – December 20, 1996)
