PoOPlists 2003

Richard Allen Poop 03

Favorite Things ~ AlBums Zoar ~ Clouds Without Water. The crowning achievement of this group’s young career. On their third album, Zoar is joined by such guests as Matt Johnson (The The), Brendan Perry (Dead Can Dance) and the Masai People of Lake Natron, Tanzania. Weighty issues are tackled here: the unobtainability of happiness through material pursuit, the horror of human disconnect, the finite nature of humanity. Because of the sheer variety of styles represented here, the album demands the…

Mike Jurkovich Poop 03

Lucinda Williams – World Without Fear You’ve got to love and laud Lucinda Williams. At fifty, she not only delivers the hardest rocking, most heart broken record of her career but also unearths the great lost Neil Young & Crazy Horse album.If you think I’m going to say anything bad about ‘World Without Tears’ you’re crazier than I ever claimed to be. Album of the year, hands down. (Lost Highway) The Wayfaring Strangers – This TrainThe search for intelligent musical…


Jack Goldberg Poop 03

Bob Fino Poop 03

1. The Waterboys: Universal Hall – Recorded in a studio under Universal Hall at the spiritual center Findhom, in Scotland, this record is filled with healing music of the highest order, built around acoustic instruments. Mike Scott continues to create the Big Music his own way with no regard to current trends or the hit parade. A true musical hero. 2. The Jayhawks: Rainy Day Music – The best record of their career. Amazing song writing and vocals from Gary…

Mark Zip Poop 03

Youngblood Brass Band – Center Level Roar (Ozone) – I got this on a whim along with my semi-annual dose of underground hiphop. It turned into my favourite discovery of the year. They do brass band with hiphop. They are funky and gutbucket too. And some of the best euophonium / tuba lines this side of Kirk Joseph of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. Black Uhuru – Dub Factor (Island) – Finally! I’ve been waiting for years for this thing…


Dan Wilmer Poop 03

2003, In My Humble Opinion 1. Calexico – Feast of Wire A slightly obscure pick for the one slot, but I really love the originality and overall talent in this band. Their music has been described as a soundtrack to a spaghetti western that was never made. They blend southwestern instrumentation, some stark musical landscapes, a smidgen of experimental jazz and storytelling in the vein of “Ghost of Tom Joad”. Every time the mariachi trumpets kick in, you’ll swear you’ve…


John Stewart Poop 03

Jeff Schwartz Poop 03

De’ Poopage outta me – from the year 2003’ 2003 was a fine year in music I must say. Quite fulfilling to the pallet of my musical tastebuds. In any case, this year specifically birthed many classics for years to come. So lets – a – get – a poopin’ shall we? 1) Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks – Pig Lib (Matador) How bout’ that there bonus disc? That’s a dandy, I’ll say. As is the brilliance of this record…

Mark Rosen Poop 03

1. NEW PORNOGRAPHERS – Electric Version 47 minutes of lyrical and, yes, musical non sequiturs on a CD that could easily have been called If It Ain’t Broke. . . Neko makes a Case for being a great background singer too. 2. VARIOUS ARTISTS – Almost You: The Songs Of Elvis Costello In this collection, each artist’s aim is true to the songs themselves, and without Elvis’s snarl the lyrics become the real star of each track. And not a…


Matt Nerney Poop 03

I can’t really believe that I’ve been doing this for almost ten years now (and neither can my ever-patient wife Nat) … and somehow I still seem to suffer from the same old symptoms of deviation and procrastination. Oh well, at least I know that I’m not alone in my sickness. As usual, trying to fashion a formula for my fancy has left me scratching my head, with a pile of CD’s in my car, and a slight case oftinnitis….

John Lefsky Poop 03

There is no new thing under the sun. I think I read it on the back of a cereal box or heard it in a car ad. That being said… the movement of the moment seems to be a , Rough Trade yard sale with a jesus and Mary Chain BBQ after. I guess there are worse trends: Rush + Santana + King Crimson= Mars Volta.Over-the-hill singers doing standards, Elvis Costello marrying Diana Krall, that whole American Idol thing, putting…



Michael Hodgkiss Poop 03

Johnny Jah – Pooplist 03 As I was thinking of my list I was wondering where did the time go? It seems like only yesterday that I wrote last years’, and the years’ before list. I now have to check for the date of issue on the CDs because some of the material I can’t remember what year it came out. Some times I don’t even know what day of the week it is..but I digress Oh well, who cares?…


Kevin Hodgkiss Poop 03

1. WANT ONE – Rufus Wainwright A bucket of rhymes he threw up threw up somewhere. Big, bold and beautiful. 2. SOME DEVIL – Dave Matthews Sweet, sad and soulful. 3.
