Ten Tunes For Friday

Asheville 6.9 (Lanser)

Friday has come back around, bringing ten more songs to kick off your weekend. This round, I featured musical couplets, delivering ten tracks in five selections. This week, I mixed a couple post-hiatus highlights into the mix,. Enjoy the pairings and have a great weekend!

Tweezer > Lifeboy” 6.23.94 II

This is the third consecutive version of “Lifeboy” that dripped out of “Tweezer” during June 1994. This “Tweezer” features prominent jamming on Cream’s “Sunshine of Your Love.” (Excuse the nasty tape flip at the end of “Tweezer.”)

Timber Ho!, Jam > Taste” 11.30.96 II

A rare time when a guest enhanced a show, Peter Apfelbaum, on tenor sax, added a whole new element to this sequence, pushing the vibe in the direction of Phish fusion.

Suzy Greenberg > Theme” 12.28.03 II

Miami '03

On the first night of Miami ’03, this unlikely combo formed a significant chunk of set two. Diving far from the structure of “Suzy,” the band entered a menacing passage in which Trey offered a stunning guitar confessional.

Twist > Simple” 11.29.03 II

One of few highlights from ’03’s Turkey Run that stands the test of time.

Makisupa > David Bowie” 10.29.95 II

A devestating “Bowie” from the night before Halloween ’95, in Louisville, Kentucky.

    Yes of course, I try to play everyday, plus I take a piano class in school. I am also taking Piano/Theory lessons this summer.

    I definitely enjoy listening and playing music. So hopefully if I stay on this path I’ll end up doing alright. I think that makes pretty good sense. 🙂

  4. VoidBoy Says:

    later Willowed.

  5. VoidBoy Says:

    @BK,

    I wish I had as much going on musically at your age then I did (0 to 10, I was a 0, but hey, who’s counting). I love the guitar and have brought as much as I can to the instrument. When I’m honest with my playing, I can see that I’m “learning” around my weak points… tough to acknowledge, but there nonetheless. Keep practicing and you will definitely make progress.

  10. Stupendous a.k.a The Beasel Says:

    Does anybody know a good way to search vids on yotube?
    in order to find all the part 1s 2s n 3s and so on…

  11. VoidBoy Says:

  12. Stupendous a.k.a The Beasel Says:

    Stupendous –

    Listening to Science Of Things right now. Very good so far, very slow-building.

    Great job!

  14. VoidBoy Says:

    @Stupendous,

    Thanks for sharing… yes, I missed this earlier.

  15. Stupendous a.k.a The Beasel Says:

    Thanks BK 😉

  16. VoidBoy Says:

    I’m interested in doing the “home studio – home recording” trip these days.

  17. VoidBoy Says:

    @Stup,

    Nice. Listening to “Nowhere”… reminds me of the “Elevator Drops” from the Boston area circa 1998. Very cool. Thanks for sharing indeed.

  18. Stupendous a.k.a The Beasel Says:

    Theres also http://www.myspace.com/beaseltronic
    studio stuff

  19. Stupendous a.k.a The Beasel Says:

    Thnks guys!

  20. VoidBoy Says:

    Cool. Love the keyboards at the end… and the “effects.” Sounds like a lot of fun.

  21. Stupendous a.k.a The Beasel Says:

    the other day I was talking to a friend that said to me..
    whats your deal, you make all this music and don let nobody hear it…
    I figured it was time to share it

  22. Stupendous a.k.a The Beasel Says:

    yeah it was a straight space rock duo…

  23. lycanthropist Says:

    thanks void

    im glad people are still diggin the posts of the shows.

    admittedly aw’s comment got to me more than i admitted, so i worry about bein over pushy.

    bk
    weve talked at length before about your musical path. I will reiterate though that your span of knowledge and your enthusiasm at your age puts you leagues ahead.

    just keep practicing and dont let the plateaus get you down. EVERY musician hits them.

    so far the venue seems pretty sweet. right on the beach

  24. Stupendous a.k.a The Beasel Says:

    Good luck Lycan
    Melt their faces

  25. VoidBoy Says:

    “We are finally Free” Love the organic textures…
