It's time for a #VinylAndBeerSunday . I have been traveling during the past several days. One of the books I was reading was RAY DAVIES recent bio about THE KINKS entitled AMERICANA. I have been on a bit of a KINKS kick during the past several months. And I wanted to dip into the catalogue when I returned home tonight. So I am spinning the 1978 release MISFITS. While it is not as well known as it's predecessor, the disc has incredible tunes like MISFITS and A ROCK AND ROLL FANTASY. I don't think that DAVIES and the boys of THE KINKS get the credit that is due them. Their catalog is well worth checking out - and finding the gems that are contained there. I am enjoying this great disc with a new beer (to me) from DOUBLE MOUNTAIN BREWERY. I picked up their KILLER RED FRESH HOP IPA from the local Trader Joes's tonight. It was bit flat when I opened it - but has grown on me after a few sips. It has a huge hop taste up front with a malty background. I would like to try it on draft sometime in the future. So....what are you listening to tonight? What are you drinking? #vinyl#vinylcommunity#vinylcollection#thekinks#misfits#raydavies#records#listeningmusic#listeningto#spinning#craftbeer#beer @doublemountain #ipa#doublemountainbrewery#oregon#oregonbeer#beerstagram#beersofinstagram#killeripa#sunday
Interpol – The Heinrich Maneuver 7" promo (2007 Capitol Records - USA) b/w "Mammoth" (instrumental). Rockaway in Silverlake, California got a big stack of these unplayed promos in their dollar bins. I grabbed a few to give away to my friends. Been following Interpol since their debut album and seen them once live back in 2002-2003 where they only played a 30 minute set but I'll never forget it. #fivershutch#interpol#TheHeinrichManeuver#promo#vinyl
I love having days to play with with colors on my face. I'm nothing close to a makeup artist but I do love and appreciate the art. I love photographing beauty still life, I love photographing makeup being applied, and I love wearing makeup. A few years ago 4 specific people sparked something in me and opened up a new realm of creativity. @ourfazinali @danabomar @lora_arellano and @ohalyssaface. I've always worn makeup and always believed the bigger the wing the better but these four people made me realize I could do more. Their looks inspired me to play and experiment. They even expanded on my passion, photography, into still life and beauty photography. @meltcosmetics is so damn gorgeous how can I not want to photograph it? @ourfazinali I waited a long time for this lip set and girl, you did not disappoint. My lips are happy and I just may live in this color ❤️📀.

Lee Morgan - "Expoobident" (Vee-Jay, 1960)
This album was one of about twenty that I indiscriminately ripped from the CD collection of a friend when I was first dipping my toes into the waters of jazz, and of course the nonsensical name has always stuck with me, so this is one of those records that I treasure for personal reasons as well as musical ones. Like "Here's Lee Morgan", released for Vee-Jay in the same year, this features Clifford Jordan on tenor and the glorious Art Blakey on drums. The piano and bass positions are different, and are held by Eddie Higgins and Art Davis, respectively. Davis I know well, but I found myself scratching my head at Higgins. It turns out that he was more of an arranger than a player, but that his natural talent made him able to handle bop playing when it was called for, and he shows up on classic jazz recordings from time to time. In any case, he has a light but focused feel here, which leaves a lot of harmonic room for the horns to play with. I found Blakey to be more mellow on this record, also. Morgan is on fire as it seems he always was, and he leads this group of top industry elites with a command that belies the fact that he couldn't yet legally drink.
New Gospeed! I love this band because they say so much without saying anything. They’re not for everyone but they’re definitely for me. #nowplaying : Godspeed You! Black Emperor : Luciferian Towers .

Charles Bradley - Changes b/w Ain't It A Sin
Original 2013 US 7" released on Dunham
RIP Charles Bradley.
On the suggestion of @jamiekronick, I was lucky enough to catch 'The Screaming Eagle Of Soul' twice at Ottawa's Bluesfest. Both nights, I watched a middle-aged man in a skintight suit with a v-neck to his navel and a shit-hot band, do the splits and induce screaming from Kanata hockey moms. He absolutely killed it. I became a huge fan.
This Black Sabbath cover was a 2013 Black Friday Record Store Day release limited to 1000 copies. I'm really glad he re-released it as the the title track of his last LP in 2016. Seek out his Neil Young and Nirvana covers (seriously).
