Raucous, epic, amazing, discordant, glorious and noisy. Hearing this Kaatskill Mountains album has completely made my day. The only way I could recommend it more is by whipping out my cock in public and bringing myself to climax whilst the album plays through a portable soundsystem as I repeat, over and over, in raising pitch and urgency ‘Kaatskill Mountains… KAAtskill MOUNTains… KAATSKILL MOUNTAINS!!!!!’
Of course, if I did that, they would probably throw me in jail for the foreseeable future, so I think I’ll give that particular promotional gimmick a miss.
This album is flavouring my morning.
I shit thee not. In related news the pope is coming to britain and tax payers are footing the bill. Meanwhile bankers are still getting phat bonuses whilst I have to survive on half-empty bags of coffee grounds found in skips behind the local starbucks.
Nah, i’m kidding. There’s no starbucks in this fucking town. Small mercies, huh?
The Vatican has previously denounced rock music as the devil’s work but in a surprise change of tune on Sunday the Holy See’s official newspaper, L’ Osservatore Romano, published what it called “a semiserious guide” to the top ten rock and pop albums of all time.
The list included The Beatles’ “Revolver,” which was given the top slot, Pink Floyd’s “The Dark Side of The Moon”, Oasis’ 1995 bestseller “(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?” and Michael Jackson’s blockbuster “Thriller.”
Other records that made the top ten include U2’s “Achtung Baby”, Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours”, Donald Fagen’s “The Nightfly,” Carlos Santana’s “Supernatural,” Paul Simon’s “Graceland” and David Crosby’s “If I Could Only Remember My Name.”
No Dylan though.
