Lumineers show tonight at Stage AE. Man, they absolutely killed their set. I saw them last March when they opened for Brandi Carlile, so I was very curious to see how they would carry themselves as a headliner. They were tremendous.

Stage AE is a great place to see a show. Be it inside or outside.

i really just want to be able to bend my strings without having to re-tune every time. Not sure if that's a guitar or string problem.

It's an Ibanez RG: http://i.imgur.com/tMbu8jf.jpg


I'd go with D'addario XL or Ernie Ball for that guitar. Elixir would also work.

Interesting opening band last night at the Lumineers show. Boston duo called You Won't. Their album is on bandcamp.

I was not really a fan at all the first several songs. The guy's voice sort of sounds like Andrew McMahon (or fill in the blank early 00s nasal pop punk/emo lead) trying to do his best Bob Dylan. They did sort of grow on me, though. When the percussion guy broke out the hand saw for one song, I was pretty impressed.

Well with that guitar I'm assuming you play some heavy stuff with drop tunings. Get a heavier gauge string, .11s or .12s at the most, a lighter gauge depending on how long you've been playing. I like GHS Boomers for anything lower than standard tuning. I wouldn't get Elixir's, when the coating on those start to wear off it has negative effects on the tone. I've seen them under a microscope and it's not pretty.

The song "Brass Bonanza" was never named Brass Bonanza by it's original composer

http://articles.courant.com/2010-11-27/ ... a-facebook

His name is not Jack Say. His name is Jacques Ysaye. Pronounced Ee-sigh-ya.

He is 88. On Facebook, he lists his current city as Alsemberg, Belgium.

Wait there's more.

He did not name his piece Brass Bonanza.

"The original title was 'Evening Beat,' but I don't know why the editor changed it," Ysaye wrote. "My pseudonym is Jack Say and I was arranger and conductor of the recording orchestra."

If you would have told me 10 years ago that Ministry was going to release a covers album, I would have been buying it the day it came out. In 2013, I finally got around to listening to it. I never thought I'd say this, but I wish I hadn't. As a longtime Ministry fan, which even includes the faux-Brit accent, pre-"Mind is a Terrible Thing" Ministry, it was disappointing and a lot of the tracks seemed forced. Can't remember if Friend Of The Devil was on there or the Buck Satan CD, but instead of this version....

which I think is amazing that it shows that Al has a decent voice

we get some terrible version looped with oversampled drums that sounded like it was recorded in 20 minutes. Black Betty was recorded by a similar group several years ago and it sounded like Ministry did their cover or that cover. Thunderstruck? I'm not even an ACDC fan, but I think that's one of those songs that you don't cover because you won't match the original. Some time after 2001, Al got this bright idea that everything needed sampled drums and to play everything at 170 bpm. Give me his old covers over anything on this CD. Roadhouse Blues, which I know falls under the oversampled, loopy drum beat category that I preached against, somehow didn't sound bad.


originally written by Magazine, Ministry has been covering this one since the late 80s.


originally a Dylan song. I knew that Dylan wrote it, but I never heard it until one day at work where I heard it and after a few lines I was like "THIS is what Ministry covered?"

JS©'s rating of the Ministry cover CD: 1.5/5, with that half point being a nostalgia point from me.

While I will admit its not the greatest, Uncle Al made some of these songs his own. I enjoyed this album and the fact other singers were brought in made it equally enjoyable.

Oh, I just spotted a few more bands that gets me closer to 0. But I feel like this is a trap. Being able and bored enough to take the test probably makes you a hipster anyway.
