Poop Glorious Poop,….2001 what can be said? too much, that’s what. Let’s get to it shall we? abandoned pools – humanistic (extasy) great peeps, great songs & great production – fans of Ken Andrews & Tommy Walters should invest in this one. It’s always great to find a new surprise and trust me this one came out of nowhere and it reared its’ head up high & stayed there. treble charger – wide awake bored (nettwerk america) 2 words –…

Mark Rosen Poop 01

1. GILLIAN WELCH – Time (The Revelator) Gilly continues her less-is-more musical philosophy. Sometimes haunting, sometimes jubilant, always exquisite. For God’s sake, give David Rawlings his due credit. This is the last time I’m going to tell you, Gilly! (See Gillian Welch bootleg below.) 2. RYAN ADAMS – Gold He may be the only guy in America who may have benefited from 9/11 but that really can’t be held against him. The fact that as a person he can be…

What I Listened to in 2001 There seemed to be a gap from mid-September on, but this is what I remember listening to and enjoying, of course, in no particular order: Nick Lowe – The Convincer • Having turned his attention from rock to sweet-sounding quiet tunes, Nick turned out an outstanding set. I still dig his mood. Dave Edmunds – Hand Picked • The other half of Rockpite self-reteases an eclectic set of (mostly) acoustic songs raging from classical…


Matt Nerney Poop 01

How the time flies! I can hardly believe it’s time to be compiling the poop again already. Well, as usual, there seemed to be a lot of music that I liked this year, and also a ton that I missed out on. Fortunately, no longer working at a record store, I didn’t have to hear a lot of low grade crap over and over. Here’s a cheer to small blessings. I seem to be getting set in my ways as…


Mike Miller Poop 01

2001…I have purchased more music during this year than in any other single year that I can recall. Unfortunately for POOP purposes, very little of it was new music. I’d be hard pressed to come up with 10 top picks of 2001 based upon the new releases of this year. It’s not as though I’m jaded. I’m very enthusiastic about the music I found in 2001. So for my purposes and as if anyone really cares, I’m disregarding the original…


Jim Meyers Poop 01

Wilco Yankee Hotel Foxtrot This record reflects the musical climate better than any other, and in a most unfortunate way, in that it’s impossible to discuss the music without first looking at the business end of things. It’s absolutely beyond my comprehension that the music industry has become such a quagmire of crapulence that the same company that released Van Morrison’s most challenging and rewarding works would reject this and set the band adrift. Welcome to the modern world. It…


Rich McBride Poop 01

What I listened to during this very difficult year… David Gray – White Ladder Joe Henry – Scar Lucinda Williams – Essence Pete Yorn – Music for the Morning After Ryan Adams – Gold John Mellencamp – Cuttin’ Heads Alison Krauss + Union Station – New Favorite Matthew Ryan – Concussion Gillian Welch – Time(The Revelator) Various – A Nod to Bob (Tribute to Bob Dylan) Shelby Lynne – Love, Shelby John Hammond – Wicked Grin Buddy & Julie Miller…


Andrew Martin Poop 01

Welcome fellow poopers! Here it is, the wax tracks on black that were so cool…..uhh yeah…. the top shit from us bottom feeders in da dance underground…… this was the year that we took it outta the bedroom and back to the people with Swank. It was the year techno began to make a comeback after years of disrespect and gave progressive house (too much of the same thing is killin me!) a run for its money and in all…


John Lefsky Poop 01

…the world exploded and all I can feel is self-pity for a broken heart, bad dreams and a couple of lost jobs, but this is a pretty self indulgent. ..I feel like Jack Nicholson in “The Shining,” but I am filling the page with “things fall apart, the center does not hold. things fall apart…” and I want to carve those words into my soul or my arm but I sit here listening to Neko Case, I sit on my…
