AND THE SUMMER OF METAL CONTINUES:
I'm fully stoked on seeing Vitus for the second time this year, and once again they are playing with total bros, so hopefully this time I'll get to meet the great god Wino (Zack and Shane I'm looking at you buddies-hook me up).
Scott "Wino" Weinrich is a bad ass. Not to mention a stone cold fox. He's been in the Doom metal scene for 30 some odd years cranking out stellar tunes that would shape lives, minds and biceps. I've heard he's a total sweetheart too.
I know that most of you already have all of this, I'm not posting anything new here. But if there's new readers, well...all of the below records are great "doom humping" music. In fact-go to the show, meet a hot piece of ass, smoke them out, buy them a drink, invite them back to your pad to listen to other "doom bone" delights and do it. You know what I mean by "it". It'll work, I swear to god. Just forget that you have to work the next morning.
Here's the 3 Wino studio full lengths:
Born Too Late (1987)
Mournful Cries (1988):
Shrinebuilder-S/T (2009) HERE. Wait, did you see Shrinebuilder earlier this year? It was epic. Let's see...Dale, Al, Scott and Wino-uh...so a collaborative between band members of the Melvins, Sleep, Om, Neurosis, Saint Vitus, etc?!?! This is great post-doom-coital music. It's spiritual. When you've finally reached your point of exhaustion, laying there wrapped up in eachother and still sweating...throw on this album, smoke a fat one and drift off into outer space.
Wino- Punctuated Equilibrium (2009)-HERE: Solo album by Wino. Maybe I smoke too much weed, but I'm into it. Here's a line from "Release Me"...“I dreamed last night of making love in the sky / On a gray stone cloud, in a hurricane’s eye — so high!” Dude, I had that dream too Wino!! We were meant to be.
Hey you ever seen that sweet ass documentary "Such Hawks Such Hounds" ??? Dude, it has all kinds of bands from Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Saint Vitus, Earthless, The Obsessed, Sir Lord Baltimore ETC ETC ETC the list goes on and your boner keeps getting bigger and harder. (Woops...I knew that was gonna come out at some point) Well, you can download it HERE on this little blog or BUY it even, why the hell not its totally worth the money. Just call your doctor if your boner doesn't go away within 6 hours. Here's Wino talking about life, love and music from his garden:
Cool, yeah...hope you all are having a rad summer.
