Okay, I need a recommendation for my first Motorhead album ever to buy. The stuff I've been reading says to get Overkill or Bomber. I have to learn some Lemmy for Tom over at the Guitar Center in Cherry Hill. Thoughts.

First of all, welcome to our little corner of the internet! :wave:

I'm not a Motorhead either, but I think Bomber was ahead of Overkill in the charts. A friend of mine was into Motorhead and he always liked Bomber and Ace of Spades.

Great! Sorry I couldn't offer more help.

So, are you learning these tunes for a gig, or just looking for some "new" music?

Dan, even tho it looks like I'm a little late to the Motorhead party, you can't really go wrong with Ace Of Spades, Bomber, or Overkill. I've got a double disc Best of Motorhead that spans their career and has some great stuff on it and has some great liner notes. Lemmy is one of a kind thats for sure! :thumb: :rawk:

I was turned onto Whispering Pines a couple of weeks ago by Myles Rose on Facebook. Myles had very high praise for them, I get the idea that he doesn't throw around praise like that lightly. I bought their CD on ebay, and just so happened that it is their bass player selling the discs on ebay. Long story short, and after emailing back & forth for the last week or so, I've helped them get a gig here in Tulsa in June. :thumb: :thumb: As good as they are on record, I have a feeling that they are really good live, can't wait to find out!
Here's their website:
www.inthewhipseringpines.com
Here's a YT link:

These guys are worth checking out, great players, great tone, and most of all, great songwriting. Enjoy!

i am going to suggest Pinkly Smooth's Unfortunate snort. it is everywhere for download. not for sale.
this was the side band that Synyster Gates and the Rev from A7X were in. not for the faint of heart.
i can't even describe it, but i will try....

take a dash of metal ( not too much )
a dash of Ska
some prog
circus music
and let mad scientists who are damn good at playing mix it all together.
i will include a link to show how different it is.

Pixel and Nasel has a killer country solo at the end.

I've been listening a lot to Mark Lanegan's "Bubblegum" album this week. Anybody here rate it much? It's very moody, and stark. But oddly uplifting at times.

This track in particular kills me :)

I LOVE Mark Lanegan!!!! He has an awesome voice. Great songwriter. I've been a huge Screaming Trees fan for a long time and really like his earlier solo efforts. I haven't listened to "Bubblegum" much, but I do like what I've heard of it. Have you listened to his Glimmer Twins stuff? It's pretty recent. I haven't warmed up to it yet, but its still cool stuff.

Here's one of my favorites of his solo stuff (listen for the Kurt Cobain background vocals):

Hey Vince, check out a band called Hater. Its a side project of Ben Shepherd from Soundgarden. I think you'll like it. Its not for everyone, they can be a little off-kilter, but I can listen to either of their CDs over and over.

Here's a link to their records on Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Hater/e/B001LH8Q9 ... 374&sr=8-2

Cool stuff. Don't let the Soundgarden connection turn you off if your not a Soundgarden fan, they sound nothing like Soundgarden.
