Indie Rock Musicians
Gimme Indie Rock 1
Before alternative, before Nirvana, a distinct bunch of rough, young bands criss-crossed the country in rusty vans. They played
in dingy clubs, slept on the floors of ardent fans, and rewrote the history of rock and roll. Gimmie Indie Rock Vol. 1 tells their story.

Husker Du, The Wipers, Pussy Galore, The Minutemen: these already legendary names in the annals of rock passed stealth-like beneath
the commercial radar of the waning 80s. They, and others like them, built a new infrastructure of labels, agents and promoters
supporting an alternative American rock economy; an underground network that would soon rise, occupying the big bad music industry
for the better part of the 90s. Many of these artists are still making music without compromise today.
Gimme Indie Rock is the first CD series to document the contribution of this unique cast of guerrilla/entrepreneurs to the
history of pop. Including many long out-of-print cuts along with a heap of the hits plus insightful liner notes from Scott Becker
(Option magazine), Gimme Indie Rock Vol. 1 is a must-have historic collection.
It should come as no surprise that K-Tel has done a terrific job with this collection of 80's Indie Rock songs, they did an equally
fine job in 1999 with an Alt.Country collection (called Exposed Roots). There really was a time that I and thousands of others
used to buy a lot of these acts' records through mail order catalogs and from magazine ads. That was what Indie rock was
really about in the 80's. The bands featured here are for the most part Indie rock legends: Husker Du, Meat Puppets, Yo La Tengo. And
I might add a couple of personal favorites like the Chills and the Feelies. Co-compiler Scott Becker's liner notes, though, are a
mixed bag. Taking unnecessary swipes at 60's rock and using the old Rock-crit line that the 70's were "a musical black hole",
Becker's notes are better when dealing with the 80's Indie Rock that he loves, not dissing acts (like Bob Seger) who were pretty
great, even if he didn't like them. In the end, thankfully, that leaves the music. And it's pretty great. I'd forgotten how jangly
and punk this stuff sounds. As with any compilation made by someone else, you could always find room for improvement: SST era
Sonic Youth and Twin/Tone era Replacements would've been nice. And does anyone remember the Go-Betweens (who were Indie until 1988)?
Or Pylon? Maybe on future volumes. But those are minor complaints. If you're interested in the peak of Indie Rock (and 80's music, in
particular) this is highly recommended.
The Montreal-based nonprofit Yellow Bird Project has worked with an amazing range of indie rock musicians over the years to create
unique T-shirt designs that benefit an array of charities. This first ever indie rock coloring book is a fitting tribute to the DIY
spirit of the bands, featuring witty, hand-illustrated activity pages from artist Andy J. Miller. Music fans can keep themselves out
of trouble for hours with mazes, connect-the-dot games, and coloring pages for the Shins, Devendra Banhart, Rilo Kiley, the National, and
more than 20 artists. With all royalties going to charity, The Indie Rock Coloring Book is sure to warm even the coolest of hipster hearts.
Mission of Dead Souls [LIVE]
A good friend of mine is an avid and competitive color-er (he's a honorary member of the LEC (league of extraordinary color-ers)).
Every night he'll put on some tunes and vigorously yet meticulously color the night away. Conveniently enough, his
preferred tunes are those of the bands in this book. The exact moment I saw this item I experienced joy of extreme orgasmic
proportions, to say the least (a shower was undoubtedly required afterward). Within a few short days of excruciating anticipation
the item, the package, the legend of a book arrived at the entrance of my lair.
As I handed this gift over to the lucky companion of mine he also experienced extensive joy of orgasmic proportions as well as
losing control of his bowels. His smile was so large, unique, delightful and so sincere that Sir Sincerely himself would lose
control of his bowels at a mere glance.
Needless to say this book is the greatest purchase I've ever made. Each page is perfection, a canvas to splurge imagination onto.
This prized possession is hands down the Chuck Norris equivalent of coloring books. My life partner listens to the indie rock band
that is featured on the page while he is coloring to bond intimately with the book, to feel all the emotions the pages
emits, to become one with one another.
by Throbbing Gristle (Indie Music Audio CD)
This is the final 'official' release Indie Music by Throbbing Gristle, originally only included as part of a 5-LP boxed set released in the
early 80s. Later, this 'limited' release saw reissue as a single LP. At this point in TG's work, the fun was all over except for the last
noise as required by contract, and that's pretty much what's going on here. Recorded in the audience at their final concert in San
Francisco, the audio quality of this album is rather dodgy, as is some of the material. However, there are moments of wild brilliance,
notably 'Spirits Flying' and the closer, 'Discipline'. But this isn't even up to the par of some of their other 'bootleg' concert recordings.
The never-before-told story of the rock music scene in India of the 1960s and '70s. India in the 1960s and early 1970s: a nation of perennial shortages. Into the staid and conservative landscape come floating in the sounds of 'Love, love me do'.
Rock Art of India: Suitable Dating Techniques
Four young boys from Liverpool in 1962 set off a storm that swept teenagers in every remote corner of the world. In socialistic India, too, youngsters put on their dancing shoes to groove to this new sound, so different from anything they had heard till then. Some grew their hair, put on their bell-bottoms and picked up their guitars and the Indian pop and rock revolution was born. But it was not just the music that was important. As Sidharth Bhatia's colourful and incisive book tells us, it was an attempt by a new, post-independence generation midnight's children to assert their own voice. Theirs was a voyage of self-discovery, as they set out to seek freedom and liberation from older attitudes and values. At the end of this era, nothing politics, society and fashion would ever be the same again.
Rock art is a vital archaeological source to study and analyse the cognitive evolution of the human intellect across the world. The importance of rock art and its dating has long been a key issue of rock-art research and continues to be attended by difficulties about methodology, misinterpretation of findings and over confidence in the reliability or precision of results. Most of the rock-art researchers' primary focus in their investigations for rock-art dating at present has been to establish chronologies of different rock-art sites.
