Here is the Music Player. You need to installl flash player to show this cool thing!

The second hour starts a little early this time around, and what I mean by that is when you’re like five minutes into hour two and trying to figure out on the tracklisting below what improv-sounding brilliant cut you’re hearing, pay careful attention to when hour one ended. Just 11 seconds from the start of the second half of the podcast. So yeah, that 18-minute wonder gets filed under hour one instead, but it comes with a wink and a nod. I just couldn’t bring myself to file something under hour two without a one at the front of the time stamp, which shows you how sad and compulsive I am because I’ve only been time-stamping these podcasts for two months now. What a dork.

It’s good stuff this. Always is, I suppose, but starting out with Goatsnake into The Machine and then on from there, it builds a flow that makes some sense one into the next in a way that, listening back to it after I put it together, was especially satisfying. Hopefully you agree as you make your way though.

As always, hope you enjoy:

0:00:00 Goatsnake, “Grandpa Jones” from Black Age Blues
0:04:36 The Machine, “Coda Sun” from Offblast!

0:34:59 Ape Skull, “A is for Ape” from Fly Camel Fly
0:39:54 Sunder, “Deadly Flower” from Demo
0:43:53 Eternal Fuzz, “Sea Change” from Nostalgia
0:47:37 Geezer, “Long Dull Knife” from Long Dull Knife

Geezer Release New Single “Long Dull Knife”

Posted in Whathaveyou on May 13th, 2015 by JJ Koczan

I know we’ve recently recounted the busy 2015 for NY heavy blues specialists Geezer, what with their tour with Bison Machine this month, appearance at Eye of the Stoned Goat in June, split forthcoming on Ripple Music with Borracho, and so on, but why not throw a new single in the mix as well? The trio just today let loose the free download track “Long Dull Knife,” which marks their first studio recording released with bassist Richie Touseull alongside guitarist/vocalist Pat Harrington and drummer Chris Turco.

You might recall a live version of “Long Dull Knife” was included on Geezer‘s 2014 Live! Full Tilt Boogie tape (review here), but the studio recording boasts a couple surprises, namely the less-whiskey-soaked feel in Harrington‘s vocals and a Hammond contribution (never hurts) from Jeff Mercel that only adds to the bluesy roll of the riff that leads the way through. I haven’t seen word of Geezer starting work on their next full-length yet, but this kind of branching out bodes well for when they get there.

Geezer‘s aforementioned run of shows with Bison Machine starts May 26. Those dates follow the announcement that came with the track, which you’ll find below:
