PoOPlists 2002

1. Beck Sea Change DGC/Geffen Records Once again, he’s outdone himself. Even Jackson Browne should be suitably impressed with this gloom n’ doom beauty. Take Mutations and remove any semblance of humor. 2. Aimee Mann Lost in Space Superego Records I don’t understand how Bachelor No. 2 got raves and this one seems to fly under the radar for most. If she has more of these in her misery treasure trunk, by all means keep em comin! 3. Super Furry…

These are a few of my favorite things. Albums of 2002 Fingathing: Superhero Music On their second album, Fingathing make hip-hop fun again by adding cello, long drum interludes and an array of vocal samples. Mum: Finally We Are No One Another sophomore release, this from an Icelandic band whose work recalls Bjork’s “Vespertine.” Music boxes, bells, and crisp layered sounds conjure images of snow and ice-covered lakes. Deadly Avenger: Deep Red An assortment of soundtrack flavors, breakbeats and old…


Michael Hodgkiss Poop 02

Alright , so my first and foremost for 2002 was recorded before most of you were born. So what! With all the sampling going on out there who knows what is original and what is new any longer. However, this recording is the real deal. Recorded December 1964, and re-released many times over in vinyl, 8 track, and cassette, this recording gets a new feel for 2002 as a double CD set. Besides the original recording, add all the out…

Steinski – Nothing To Fear (Soul Ting Records) I am just a little ashamed to have this on the Pooplist, not because of the music, but because the CD is almost impossible to find. Steinski is one of the great DJ/Selector originators, responsible, along with partner Double D, for the seminal “Lesson 1”, “2” and “3”. “Nothing To Fear” is a CD of the mix he made for the BBC radio show “Solid Steel”. The primacy of the beat is…

Fu Manchu – California Crossing (mammoth) Rockin’ head-bobin’ groove – if you know FU, then you know the deal, fuzzy, sludgy & tight – these guys are as cool as it gets – who else would wear ski hats in the summer ? a lot of hayzie fuzz.. Jurassic 5 – Power in Numbers (interscope) Continuing the positive vibe – regulating the “quality control” – most definitely yo! – what can be said more than ill fuckin’ samples & dope…


Raissa St.Pierre Poop 02

Here’s where I found my thrills………… 1.Tonight at Noon: A Love Story by Sue Graham Mingus I love Sue. I love Charles. I love every word in this book! Charles had such an amazing mind and his music was so exciting, as of course was his style and how he led his life. Charles did everything to the maximum, took risks and got emotional all over the place. 2.Snapshots From the Lost Highway (more biography on Hank Williams) by Colin…

1. VARIOUS ARTISTS – The Best Bootlegs In The World Ever. . . Hip-hop artists get their grunge on or, to quote the title of the Nirvana meets Destiny’s Child mashed potato, smells like booty. DJ’s, not as musicians but as magicians, create altogether new songs out of old ones, proving the whole to be considerably greater than the sum of the sometimes ridiculously incongruous parts. The cleverest, most outrageous, funniest, most fun release (or non-release) of the year. Song…
