Millennial Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the Third Psychedelic Era, 1996-2015

What if Rhino put together a fourth Nuggets Box Set? About 5 years ago, I put four playlists together on my iTunes library using that very concept. These most likely would have shown up on this very blog, had I still been actively blogging at the time. A recent thread in a Facebook group I frequent, reminded that I had tackled this, so I decided to see if I could recreate those playlists on Spotify. Turns out, pretty much most of what I picked was available on there. A few were missing and I had to swap tracks for certain artists, but I was pleasantly surprised. I put it all on one playlist on Spot. 107 tracks and a little over 5 hours worth. I will probaly continute to add to this playlist but if you'd like to listen to what I have so far . . .

Proto Power Pop! [The Resurrection of Burn and Shine?]

Hello folks, not sure if anybody cares, but I thought I'd start sharing playlists again. I've finally decided to give Spotify a go after years of shying away from it. Format will be the same, all of my playlists will still fit onto an 80-minute CDR, you just won't be able to download them. I am at the mercy of what is available on Spotify, so that compromises my choices a little, but it also forces me to be a little more creative.

My first two playlists are up and running. I've labeled them Proto Power Pop and Proto Power Pop V.2, but they are essentially one big document of the music that I think might have inspired some of our favorite Power Poppers later. I posted an early version of the first playlist in the "I Love Power Pop" Facebook group and got some great feedback. Lots of great suggestions for choice of songs and artists. In fact, I had so many great suggestions that I had to make a second playlist.

Here are the tracklistings. Each volume is roughly in chronological order:

The Death of Burn and Shine.

I guess I kinda kept everyone hanging, but as you probably surmised, this blog is now officially dead. I continue to make comps, but due to the problems with file sharing sites, this has become too much of a burden for me. I'll let the url live on, but I will not be making any more updates, nor will I post new links for comps. Thanks for reading.

Beautiful Noise Documentary Update!

From the Kickstarter website:


We crossed the funding goal with 3 days to go thanks to every one of you awesome backers! Thank you so much, you have made this project a reality, after 8 years of hard work and dedication this movie is going to be released!

But wait, there's more! We still need your involvement. When coming up with our goal we calculated the minimum amount we needed to get the film released. Now that we have made it to that amount, we could definitely use more funds to pay for additional songs, footage, for post production sweetening and manufacturing costs that will enhance the final film.

So stay tuned and stay involved. Only 3 days left to be a part of this campaign. Please keep spreading the word: http://kck.st/RX9lFK


Eric, Sarah & the 'Beautiful Noise' team.

This is great news! Can't wait to see it.

I also stumbled upon this Fantastic compilation yesterday and thought I'd share it with you. It is a nice companion piece to my Shoegaze Primer: Obscure Shoegaze Vol. 1 Complied by Ursula 1000

Track list:

"Love Sick" by Fury Things (Cheree Records 1990)
"Shy Me" by Nature Things (Action Records 1991)
"Change You Leaving" by Feral (Lust Recordings 1991)
"Mirrored" by Drop (Chapter 22 1991)
"Slyde" by Blair 1523 (Wilde Club Records 1992)
"Sunriser" by That Uncertain Feeling (Dead Dead Good 1991)
"Something Sonic" by Beautiful Happiness (Cheree 1990)
"Who's" by The Ecstasy of Saint Theresa (Ecstasy Release 1991)
"Ride" by The Lavender Faction (Lust Recordings 1990)
"Need To Be" by Headtime (Cherry Red 1991)
"Saints & Razors" by Aenone (kokopop 1993)
"Jealousy Comes To The Rescue" by Flood (Quarry 1991)
"Space Ship" by The Suncharms (Wilde Club Records 1991)
"Give Her Tomorrow" by The Waiting Sound (Engergy-Vent 1990)
"Sugar I Swear" by Whipping Boy (Cheree 1990)

If you download it from SoundCloud, it is just one big mp3 (nearly and hour long). I'll be honest, I'd never heard any of these songs before I downloaded it. In fact, the only artist that I was familiar, was Flood-- and I only know him due to his production credits. Don't let that discourage you from giving this a listen, there is not a weak track in the bunch!
