PoOPlists 2005

Jim Finnigan Poop 05

Well my ultimate PoOP list is here and I didn’t even write it! Simon Reynolds book Rip It Up and Start Again – Postpunk 1978-1984 was my favorite musical experience of the year. Not the book alone – I DJ’d my reading experience with the records listed or mentioned in the text, and the soundtrack on my stereo(s) was better by far than anything else that made it to my turntables or CD players. And what a selection: Slits meets…


Eric Fine Poop 05

Greetings and welcome to another journey through my discovery of this year’s music trials, tribulations, struggles, and triumphs. I hope the pleasure you received from new music this year was more enjoyable that years gone by. Finding new music has become a full time job. And finding free time has been almost as challenging as finding good new music. The more music I heard that I liked; the more I realized that there were actually identifiable pockets where great music…

John DeLaire Poop 05

Hey ! All the young dudes and those fine ladies also partaking in the 2005 Poop effort. Well there goes another year and the music press is filled with stories about file sharing The big boys are litigating. You don’t litigate Rock “N’ Roll. Try sending me a subpoena. Now on to the real opinionated privileged stuff I got last year.      Buy new or used through Amazon 1) Petra Hayden — “The Who Sell Out” I think the…

Duncan Clark Poop 05

  Buy new or used through Amazon 1.RYAN ADAMS – Cold Roses Hyperactivity is not necessarily a bad thing.

Kent B Poop 05

Sweet Sixteen   Buy new or used through Amazon Blue Highway, – Marbletown Not only do these guys play great bluegrass, but they write songs that match the real stuff on Brother Where Art Thou. You know, songs that tell stories about death, Lazarus, dark clouds and lighting.   Buy new or used through Amazon Wide Right – Sleeping on the Couch A very unglamorous foursome performs searing songs about rockers struggling with day jobs and lost dreams as they…


Main Poop Analysis 2004

February 2005 Dear POOPster, POOP’s  here. The Eighteenth Annual POmpous and OPinionated List, that is. It’s time to try to make some sense out of this past year, a year in which three defining moments seemed to defy any and all semblance of logic. Bush was elected president. The Red Sox won the World Series. And Bush was elected president. It was a year that introduced new nouns to the lexicon, like iPod (appearing on three lists) and Jesusland (mentioned…


Main Poop Analysis 2005

Dear POOPster: You’ve got POOP in your hands. The Nineteenth Annual POmpous and OPinionated List, that is. It’s hard to believe but when this whole POOPthing first started in 1987, we had a conservative Republican president surrounded by scandalous goings-on and Antonin Scalia from New Jersey had just been confirmed to a lifetime membership as one of The Supremes. It is indeed comforting to know that as America undergoes such sweeping change, POOP lumbers on. And lumber it has as…
