Dan O'Bannon 1946-2009

I just found out that Dan O'Bannon died on Dec. 17th.
He was 63.
O'Bannon was instrumental in creating one of my favorite Sci-Fi movies- "Alien".
He also co-stared in John Carpenter's first feature film "Dark Star" ('74). If you've never seen it, it's just brilliant.

We'll miss you Pinback!

Planet X (1990)

Planet X was the project of Allan Kraut and Adam Buhler.
This is in the same vain-sample based style of KMFDM, Skinny Puppy, early Ministry or later Cabaret Voltaire.
Kind of

Blue - No Soul (tape 1993)

Blue was a Boston band from 1993.
With flourishes of the Paisley Revival movement, Tom Verlaine
and Rain Parade, Scott L. crafted some formidable music during the time when the dark cloud of grunge was engulfing the '90's.

I knew Scott through a friend of a friend. I just ran into him the other day and I come to find out he lives in my neighborhood, which made me think of his tape, so i dug it out. This is the only thing I have from him, if I recall he had a shitload of music from various bands
he created that have waxed and waned.

Not sure how the MP3 is going to sound, I'm using a new sound card and I haven't been to happy with it's interface and sound output. It's a Xonar Essence STX, suppose to be some really good card, well- I'm not hearing it.
