* Some artist I've never heard of is playing my favorite venue.
* Let's give it a listen.
* WooooOOoOooOOOoooh! Crazy stuff! Who's that? Mary Halvorson? Never heard of her.
* Oh she played with (former/part-time drummer for Secret Chiefs 3 and Xiu Xiu). Well that explains everything.
* Oh she played with Trevor Dunn! Well that explains everything. #MaryHalvorson #ChesSmith #SecretChiefs3 #XiuXiu #Trevor Dunn
Really cool Trey Spruance interview on the Vinyl Guide podcast.
The second part is already available for Patreons. They talk a lot about my favorite album of all time (Disco Volante if you haven't guessed it yet). https://www.patreon.com/vinylguide
Note: The interview was done before the Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny tour announcement.
50 years! Probably about the same amount of time it will take for a new Secret Chiefs 3 album to come out, give or take.
"Happy 50 the birthday TREY SPRUANCE!"
Sunday night listening: Secret Chiefs 3 (#Ishraqiyun) – Perichoresis
I was so disappointed when it came out. I had been waiting for an Ishraqiyun album for years and all I got is barely 40min & just 6 songs, almost all of which had been played live for a decade or so. Definitely not enough to satisfy my appetite.
#SecretChiefs3 also just released a new geek pack & an Halloween EP.
The EP is just 3 versions of their cover of #JohnCarpenter's Halloween. The first version came out on a 7" in 2007.
SC3 is one of my favorite bands ever but I am so tired of hearing the same songs over and over again.
I have been feeling like this for years now. When Book of Souls finally came out in 2013 after countless delays (first LP in 9 years, or 5 if you count the Masada album commissioned by Zorn) I was so disappointed: although it's a very good album, it's only 39min long & many songs had already been released on 7' and/or had been played live for almost ten years.
The geek pack can be purchased on Bandcamp: https://secretchiefsthree.bandcamp.com/album/musica-practica-geek-pack-one-bereshith
#GoranKajfeš Subtropic Arkestra: The best thing about this kind of albums is that for the avid listener, they act as a gateway towards new musical horizons. The biggest such gateway for me probably was #SecretChiefs3

I didn't know that there were bootlegs on #Archiveorg! Did you?
There are quite a few #SecretChiefs3 bootlegs including https://archive.org/details/sc32000-06-07.flac16/ which has a better sound quality (or almost) than Eyes of Flesh & https://archive.org/details/SC32012-10-11 where they play #Masada stuff at the Stone, a venue founded by #JohnZorn.
