Harry Nilsson - The Point

I absolutely love this album so I'm gonna re-up it for you. I remember liking it as a kid and then when I was about eighteen some friends and I were at a jumble sale and there it was. It even had the original comic book with it (scans included with the download). Obviously my mate's took the piss out of me for getting so excited but after we dropped some acid and then listened to it they were converted. In fact, if it wasn't for LSD then the whole thing would never have existed. This is what Nilsson had to say about it...

"I was on acid and I looked at the trees and I realized that they all came to points, and the little branches came to points, and the houses came to point. I thought, 'Oh! Everything has a point, and if it doesn't, then there's a point to it.'" [Harry Nilsson]

Basically The Point is a tale by musician and songwriter Harry Nilsson about a boy named Oblio, the only round-headed person in the Pointed Village, and his dog called Arrow. The story is told through both song and narration and is great listening for children as well as adults.

DOWNLOAD HARRY NILSSON - THE POINT

Here's the tracklisting (320kbps)...
01) Everything's Got 'Em
02) The Town (Narration)
03) Me And My Arrow
04) The Game (Narration)
05) Poli High
06) The Trial And Banishment (Narration)

14) Oblio's Return (Narration)
There is also scans of the comic book included :)

THE MOVIE
There was also an animated film version of The Point!. The TV version was originally narrated by Dustin Hoffman but because of contract issues the film release used Ringo Starr as the narrator. The version embedded below is with Dustin Hoffman and is available on video.google.com.

Blyth Power - A Little Touch Of Harry

UPDATE: I've re-ripped it from a different tape so the quality of this download is better. It's still from a 25 year old tape though :)

LATEST UPDATE: The Old Punk has given me some good news about this. Someone by the name of Paco has released a vinyl pressing of this classic. It's only £6 plus a bit for postage. It comes with a poster and a copy of the original booklet too. Get it here - La Vida Es En Mus.

A Little Touch Of Harry In The Night was the first release from Blyth Power. It was originally released on cassette in 1984 so the actual quality of the files is not exactly perfect.

Blyth Power are a British 'folk punk' band formed in 1983 by singer/drummer Joseph Porter, formerly of Zounds and The Mob.

Blyth Power's music shows strong influences from punk rock and folk music, and the band members have described their sound as a cross between The Clash, Steeleye Span and The Rubettes.

Hit Parade - Bad News / Plastic Culture EPs (Crass Records)

Here is a re-post of the Bad News and Plastic Culture EPs by Hit Parade. The downloads are in FLAC or 320kbps mp3 format so just grab whichever one you want.

Hit Parade was Dave Hyndman from Belfast, with occassional assistance by members of Crass on backing vocals but mostly it was Dave. The Bad News EP was released in 1983 on Crass Records and rather than guitars, bass and drums it uses drum boxes and samplers. There is also a second EP, Plastic Culture which was released in 1984 that contains extended versions of a couple of tracks. In fact Media Song is basically an extended version/remix of Bad News from the first EP.

[FLAC FORMAT] DOWNLOAD THE HIT PARADE COLLECTION
[MP3 FORMAT] DOWNLOAD THE HIT PARADE COLLECTION

(text from Southern Records)
This record exposes the tyranny of the British Government's attacks on Northern Ireland. Borrowing from Outta Control: Paper of the Belfast Anarchists, the record sleeve/poster details the atrocities of prisons in which "political criminals" are locked up for speaking out against the unjust, violent sectarian state which has long ignored outcries from its inhabitants. The sleeve/poster pictures those who died in peaceful demonstrations and hunger strikes, specifically, the "H Block" hunger strike. "Britains role in Northern Ireland, both on the streets and in legislative methods is clearly repressive and designed to keep in check a rebellious section of the population...which seeks to take control of and responsibility for its own future.

AS LONG AS POPULATIONS ARE UNABLE TO TAKE A UNITED STAND AGAINST ALL FORMS OF OPPRESSION, THEY WILL REMAIN SUBSERVIENT TO IT.

Here's the tracklistings...

BAD NEWS EP
01) Here's What You Find In Any Prison
02) More Faces
03) Bad News
04) H Block

D&V - Inspiration LP & Nearest Door EP (Crass Records)

Here's a rip of both releases by D&V on Crass Records. D&V only consisted of Andy Leach on drums and Jef Antcliffe on vocals, hence the name D&V (Drums & Vocals). This download consists of The Nearest Door EP which was released in 1983 and the hugely titled album Inspiration Gave Them The Motivation To Move On Out Of Their Isolation which was released in 1985. I hadn't heard the album in about 20 years and I was pretty surprised at how much I enjoyed it when I ripped it. The backing tracks were arranged and played by Penny Rimbaud using samples built up from vocal and percussive sources and the vocals of Eve Libertine & Joy de Vivre. Frankly it's pretty experimental in places but considering it's basically drums & vocals they've done a really good job.

A special mention goes to The Saucer People for reminding me about D&V and to The Loftmonkey for sending me the vinyl (check out his ebay shop over to the right or just click here).

Grindcore Collection

Here's another compilation for your listening pleasure. This one's a selection of various different grindcore bands though there's also a bit of crust mixed in as well. Though whatever genre you want to call it this is all full on, blazing fast, brutal hardcore. Not for the faint hearted :)

It will fit onto a CD if you want to burn yourself a copy.

I'd also like to thank the mighty Brutal Truth who tweeted this comp when it was first up :)

Grindcore is an extreme genre of music that started in the early to mid 1980s. It draws inspiration from some of the most abrasive music genres - including death metal, industrial music, noise and the more extreme varieties of hardcore punk.

Serial Killaz - Full Metal Jack Up Mix

I was looking through some old mixes the other day and I came across this little gem. It's a jungle / drum & bass mix from 2009 but unfortunately I can't remember where I got it from.

This is much like the mixes I do (it's got a couple of tunes that are on my wish list) so if you like them you'll like this.

Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Sky

This is a live show from Pink Floyd that was recorded on the 17th of February 1972. It's basically a live version of Dark Side Of The Moon from before the studio album was released. The good thing about this show is that the tracks are completely different from the ones that are on the studio album so it's refreshing to hear these other arrangements. There are also a couple of bonus tracks at the end of the download which were taken from a 1970 session for the BBC.

Paperhouse - A (1991 Cassette)

This is a copy of a tape by a band called Paperhouse which was released in 1991. I saw them live years ago and thought they were excellent so I bought a copy of their tape. Coming from somewhere in Surrey they play a psychedelic mix of dub-tinged space rock, very much in the same vein as early Ozric Tentacles and bands like that. The sound quality isn't perfect but considering it's taken from a 20 year old tape then it's not bad at all. The lineup of the band is Jake (Guitar), Andy (Bass), Phil (Drums) & Brian (Keyboards).

60s Proto-Punk/Psychedelia Collection

This is a collection of 60's proto-punk/garage rock songs mainly taken from the albums Nuggets and the Pebbles Series. Not all the tracks are really proto punk, things like Indian Rope Man are just classic 60s psychedelia... which is no bad thing.

The Pebbles series describes the recordings on their albums as "Original punk rock and psychedelic rock from the fabulous Sixties." These recordings were primarily made by the numerous American bands that were formed in the wake of the British Invasion. Essentially referring to the young age and lack of sophistication of the musicians, the term "punk rock" was coined (or at least popularized) by Lenny Kaye, who was involved in compiling the original Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era, 1965-1968.

Krautrock Collection

This download is a selection of krautrock and 'trancerock'... but to be honest I'm not entirely sure what genre this should be. Basically most of these tracks are long and repetitive, hopefully causing a euphoric trance-like state rather than inducing a stroke or coma ;) It goes on for just under 80 minutes so it will fit onto a CD.

Krautrock is a generic name for the experimental music scene that appeared in Germany in the late 1960s and gained popularity throughout the 1970s, especially in Britain. BBC DJ John Peel in particular is largely credited with spreading the reputation of krautrock outside of the German-speaking world. The book Krautrocksampler by Julian Cope describes the underground music scene in Germany from 1968 through the 1970s and is well worth a read if you like this stuff.

Get Your Lie Straight: A Galaxy Of Funk

This compilation anthologises some of the best grooves that Fantasy Record’s subsidiary Galaxy issued in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Galaxy naturally focused on the bluesy, earthier style of soul popular in that region, a sound exemplified by the local smash ‘Foxy Girls In Oakland’ by Rodger Collins. Other local acts on Galaxy were vocalist Lenny Williams, later to find fame with Tower Of Power, and blues singers JJ Malone and Tiny Powell, both of whose funky waxings for the label are represented here. Instrumental grooves from Merl Saunders and The Right Kind, and obscure nuggets from further notables like The Debonaires and Loleatta Holloway complete this compilation.

Gorilla Biscuits - 1987 Demo

Here is a download of a demo from 1987 by the hardcore punk band, Gorilla Biscuits. The band consist of Anthony "Civ" Civarelli, Walter Schreifels, Arthur Smilios, Alex Brown and Luke Abbey. Gorilla Biscuits is currently signed to Revelation Records. Apparently their name comes from the drug quaaludes, which people called "ape shit" or "gorilla biscuits" due to the pill's large size. Though the name was only meant to be temporary they have continued to use it.

Minor Threat - Demo's, Rehearsals & More

Here's a selection of demo's, rehearsals and alternate versions of tracks by Minor Threat. Included in the download is a rehearsal from 1981 done in the living room at their home, Dischord House. Apparently the original source was recorded on a Maxwell normal bias UR 90 cassette. There is also a copy of their first demo tape which was recorded in 1981 and then released in 2003. There is also an 'alternate mix' version of the Out Of Step album and finally I've also included another collection of demos that was released in 2001 as a split album with Youth Brigade (I've included the Youth Brigade tracks as well). Obviously some of the quality isn't great but you've already got the discography CD so I thought I'd post up some more obscure stuff.

Minor Threat were an American hardcore punk band, formed in 1980 in Washington, D.C.. The band split in 1983 & even though they were fairly short-lived they had a massive influence on the hardcore punk scene, both stylistically & in establishing a "do it yourself" ethic for music distribution & concert promotion. Their song "Straight Edge" became the eventual basis of the straight edge movement, while the band often professed their own "straight edge" ideals.
