PoOPlists 2002

Irv Rosen Poop 02

What I Listened To In 2002 Well, I am getting jaded. Sick of almost all alt.anything. Can’t stomach most singer songwriters. Went out of my way to listen to other types of stuff – except for some of the old reliables. George Harrison – Brainwashed Comfortable listening at its best. Well, the two best are gone but this one resonates with George’s knowledge of what was to come. Missed. Mary Lee’s Corvette – Blood on the Tracks Live, song-for-song recreation…

Susan Lyne Poop 02

(I am a POOPster intern. I don’t even own 10 new albums from 2002, in fact I really just want the POOPster log to read more than anything. But…(stealing a page from STP) here are my top 10 musical moments for 2002): 1.The Handsome Family, Live at Schuba’s, (2002) — The Handsome Family can do no wrong, well almost. Their songs are great and Brett’s voice stops me in my tracks, especially in ‘Arlene’ one of my favorite of all…


John Lefsky Poop 02

I had it all, written out. ..well, outlined. Then I cleaned my room. Then I took drugs. Ennui and I almost don’t want to do this and not because there wasn’t a lot of good music or because my ex-girlfriend called me yesterday but hung up on the answering machine and I was anal and still in love enough to *69 in the fear/hope that it was her… no. Not for any of those reasons. Just a big sigh, is…

1. BLOOD ON THE TRACKS-Mary Lee’s Corvette Do you think you could actually wear down a CD like a record from too much play? “Try imagining a place that is always safe and warm..,..” and familiar. A tribute beyond tributes. Wonderful, just wonderftil. 2. JERUSALEM-Steve Earle “God stood and saw it was good. ” With the spirit of Keith Richards backing him up he said what no one else had the stones to say. Beauty and truth. In a rocking…


John Greak Poop 02

First off, I feel the need to alert everyone that I’m tired, ornery and waiting with bated breath for my new hydrogen car and the shiny nickel the latest Bush tax plan will send my way. In the mean time, I will bore all of my fellow culture snobs with a trite and simplistic look back on the year in music 2002. In no special order: Mary Lou Lord – “Live City Sounds” Enter the Boston Subway with a guitar,…


Eric Fine Poop 02

Greetings to all friends new and old. And to all my brothers of years gone by, at least we have this way of communicating to each other. Hope all is well, hope you come prepared with some good criticism, and I hope another year does not go by where we do not see each other. You know who you ‘all are. Let’s begin. 01. Badly Drawn Boy – Have You Fed The Fish? First it starts with a bang, slows…


Jim Finnigan Poop 02

Surely no artist held a candle to the wonderful weird wild Wacko Jacko. I dare Marilyn Manson or GWAR or Karen Finley or Mariah Carey to try to top this wonderful conceptual art guru who has emerged from the depths of a bathtub filled with naked 14-year old television boystars to become the Performance Artist of the Century! Imagine! Producing an album that didn’t sell even though it had a $30million publicity budget! And then to accuse Tommy Mottola of…


Kevin Ferris Poop 02

The following is not really a top ten, but just a list of some records that I enjoyed. (It’s also not in any particular order.) Starsailor: Love is Here – Similar to Coidplay’s style. Moby: 18 – A very pleasant record. Shannon McNally: Jukebox Sparrows – A promising debut from a local kid. South: From Here on In – Another good record in the Coidplay style. Interpol: Turn on the Bright Lights – Remember Joy Division. Ryan Adams: Demolition –…
