Black Flood Diesel “Into The Light”

This song is amazing. The video is pretty artsy and you’ll need to fast forward to the 3 minute mark if you want to go straight to the music; but it’s worth checking it out in its entirety. I actually first heard this song because it was featured in the trailer for a film called A Clown Short Of Destiny, which is based on the Des Moines, Iowa metal scene. From what I have read on the film, it is very controversial because of its portrayal of Slipknot; who are blamed for having a negative influence on the careers of their fellow Des Moines bands. Apparently it won some indie film festival awards too. I wish I could see it. I’ve only seen the trailers that are available online and I saw a 20 minute extended trailer a few years ago but that has since been taken down from the internet. If ANYONE knows where to get a copy of this film, please let me know. I’m down to pay for it; I just want to see it!

Black Flood Diesel is based in Minneapolis and this track comes from their record Chaos Saves, which is just insane. From beginning to end, it’s a ridiculously great metal record that did not get its due; a true shame.

The Twilight Singers with Mark Lanegan “Live With Me/Where Did You Sleep Last Night?”

The Twilight Singers is fronted by Greg Dulli of Afghan Whigs fame. He frequently collaborates with Mark Lanegan, most notably with their project The Gutter Twins. The Gutter Twins put out an album on Sub Pop a few years ago titled Saturnalia and I absolutely love it. Fantastic record.

Mark Lanegan founded the alt-rock band Screaming Trees, who held their own amongst their contemporaries in the 80’s and 90’s. Since their break-up, Lanegan has never stopped working and besides his own solo records, you can see his collaborations with numerous groups, ranging from Queens of the Stone Age to Belle & Sebastian’s Isobel Campbell. His voice is one of a kind and his work with Greg Dulli is some of my very favorite. This is a killer video so check it out.

Meat Puppets “Sam”

Meat Puppets received a huge push in their career when Nirvana covered three of their songs: “Lake of Fire,” “Plateau,” and “Oh, Me” for their MTV Unplugged performance. They were a huge influence on Kurt Cobain and he had the founding members of Meat Puppets, Curt and Cris Kirkwood on stage with them for the performance. This band is still around, believe it or not, and their last two records were really good. They put on a fun show too and this is one of my favorite songs to see live. I don’t know how the Kirkwood brothers sing this fast; it’s pretty ridiculous.

Aerosmith “Sick As A Dog” live in Houston, TX 1977

This song comes off Aerosmith’s Rocks, which is one of the greatest rock records of all time. It’s definitely my favorite Aerosmith record; it’s an album you can play in its entirety during almost any occasion. Crazy to think that it was recorded during the height of the band’s drug abuse. This video is a cool find; lord knows how high Steven Tyler and Joe Perry are at this show.

    I love the old school Nintendo photos. That Meat Puppets song blows. I REALLY loved seeing BFD on here though. Props to AKF for that.
