@Pearl Jam fans: “Pearl Jam 20”

…20 years of PJ history in songs:

Exclusive Album Stream: Pearl Jam’s Career Retrospective ‘Twenty’
Soundtrack features live recordings and rarities spanning 20 years

Cameron Crowe’s Pearl Jam Twenty documents the first two decades of the Seattle quintet’s extraordinary career, presenting never-before-seen footage of the band at every phase of their evolution, from their embryonic stage after the dissolution of Mother Love Bone to their present-day role as the elder statesmen of Nineties rock. Pearl Jam Twenty isn’t just a movie, though – we’ve already shared an exclusive excerpt of the companion oral history book of the same name, and now we have an exclusive stream of the soundtrack album.

The Pearl Jam Twenty soundtrack is a career-spanning set of live recordings, demos and unreleased material that illuminates the band’s creative process and showcases their awe-inspiring power as a live act. The set kicks off with a handful of live recordings of classic tunes from Ten, but goes on to include two Temple of the Dog demos, a gorgeous cover of Mother Love Bone‘s “Crown of Thorns,” the previously unheard recording “Acoustic #1” and highlights from their appearances on MTV Unplugged and Saturday Night Live.

The Pearl Jam Twenty soundtrack will be in stores on September 20th 2011, but you can stream it above in its entirety now:

  …with Bozzrock playing Neil @F-Trans-Festival.

Tue Recht und scheue niemand, you Fucker, klag nicht, kämpf! you white Trash!  Ist schon, dass das mal diskutiert wird. Why do we have to back off, when our words have been stolen? We like it when words are spoken, discussed. “Tue recht und klag nicht, scheue niemand, kämpfe!”

To the left, you see “Sebastian”.

Klagt nicht, kaempft - Don't wine, fight!

Ficker

With such claws, nothing can go wrong… That’s Sungreen’s claws:

Finally, there played a band.Neil Young tunes, at phaser-laser speed, lots of “Ragged Glory Material” or “Mirrorball” and even moar.

That’s what happens when the weird leg of the Human-Highway network does do a rusted Neilfest in Europe. Consequence was: Delete all. “Are you sure?”

We accidentially the whole Internets!

“be the rain!”

“no rain! no rain!”

What an incidenticality. Verhopft. [a click on images resizes them – phugg coding]

Even Opa lost his lyrical templates.

Update: here is a photogallery on Bozzrock. (you can see the Hiterkopfes of some people…)

Autumn gold and ancient rivers bending

a song about the autumn:

two lanes wide

 

the lyrics: http://www.human-highway.org/lyrics/lyrics-18.html#001

it’s autumn.

THRASHER

They were hiding behind hay bales,
They were planting in the full moon
They had given all they had for something new
But the light of day was on them,
They could see the thrashers coming
And the water shone like diamonds in the dew.

And I was just getting up, hit the road before it’s light
Trying to catch an hour on the sun
When I saw those thrashers rolling by,
Looking more than two lanes wide
I was feelin’ like my day had just begun.

Where the eagle glides ascending
There’s an ancient river bending
Down the timeless gorge of changes
Where sleeplessness awaits
I searched out my companions,
Who were lost in crystal canyons
When the aimless blade of science
Slashed the pearly gates.

It was then I knew I’d had enough,
Burned my credit card for fuel
Headed out to where the pavement turns to sand
With a one-way ticket to the land of truth
And my suitcase in my hand
How I lost my friends I still don’t understand.

They had the best selection,
They were poisoned with protection
There was nothing that they needed,
Nothing left to find
They were lost in rock formations
Or became park bench mutations
On the sidewalks and in the stations
They were waiting, waiting.

So I got bored and left them there,
They were just deadweight to me
Better down the road without that load
Brings back the time when I was eight or nine
I was watchin’ my mama’s T.V.,
It was that great Grand Canyon rescue episode.

Where the vulture glides descending
On an asphalt highway bending
Thru libraries and museums, galaxies and stars
Down the windy halls of friendship
To the rose clipped by the bullwhip
The motel of lost companions
Waits with heated pool and bar.

But me I’m not stopping there,
Got my own row left to hoe
Just another line in the field of time
When the thrashers comes, I’ll be stuck in the sun
Like the dinosaurs in shrines
But I’ll know the time has come
To give what’s mine.


discuss! an epic Neil song.

Somalia Aid – Old Black pick-guard for bidding

SDomalia aid with an Old Black plate

Albert auctions a handmade brass pick-guard for a Gibson Les Paul “Old Black” style guitar, top-chromed, like Neil has.

The reason? To help the starving kids in Somalia and neighbouring regions.

The plate is massive chromed brass (250 grams) and has all feed-throughs for the original screw drillings and the humbuckers.

This pick-guard is unique and serves a good purpose, like Love! Many things are running afoul in the world today, but helping the starving kids in Africa is at least far from dogmas.

End of bidding is this Sunday, high noon, European Summer Time (CEST) = GMT+2h.

He’ll explain you, how to best donate your help.

Thank you, Albert.

Here is the pick-guard in mounted state:

[comments welcome]

thanks to Albert. We raised in an individual action about 1000 € in total. Thimk about that!? Military expense is at least a factor 1.000.000.000 per day.

The world is an oyster.
