Bob Lukomski Poop 2022

This year started off okay, even got across the pond for a couple weeks. Then the chest pains and shortness of breath… I’m now the proud owner of two stents (thereby putting the stent in “stentorian”). Physical recovery was quick, mental processing took a while longer. An excuse to start going out to shows (Roxy Music, Heaven 17, Stereolab, and a fair amount of local fare). Still, got some fun tunage over the course of the year, some return visits from old friends here (if you’ve been inspecting my pOOp from the past few years). As always, I bought more current year releases than listed, but don’t take this as a top 10 list. It’s just what’s been tickling my ears most. — Malka Spigel, Can, Loop, Adi Newton, Stephen Mallinder, Brian Eno, Left Hand Right Hand, Faust, Jochen Arbeit + Sonja Kosche, Anthology of Contemporary Music from South Africa …

Bob Lukomski Poop 2021

This year, at one point, was supposed to be a return to “normal” – Vaxxing, Grandpa Joe, live shows… and whilst not as shitty as 2020, still lots of uncertainty in the air. My new “normal” was acquiring a LOT of new music from artists I didn’t know, or know very well… So, for the first time, my POOPlist is not just what I bought over the past year, but a culling of releases into a sort of top 10 or whathaveyou! Here goes… (in no particular order)

Bob Lukomski Poop 2020

Any ST: Voyager fans out there? Remember that episode where Eric Foreman’s dad kept trying to rewrite history so he wouldn’t lose his Kitty from another planet, but kept making things worse? …“Year of Hell”… No magic Janeway reset for us tho’ – besides, then there would be the possibility of these releases not even existing…
(Again, my critera – It came out and I bought a physical copy in 2020.)

Bob Lukomski Poop 2017

Well, I gotta Pflug my own work first.
Bob Lukomski Höre CD (Earwaker Recordings)
Not that it’s the greatest thing out there, but I put good time and energy into this little 6 track CD of electronic epigrams. Old synths, new synths, borrowed synths, and yes, a blue synth. And I wasn’t even getting married. Kraftwerk meets David Axelrod in spots, lots of clean lines and simple electronic percussion. No vocals, you can get it local.

Bob Lukomski Poop 2016

2016… Can’t say I’m gonna miss you, what with the high musician body count and the end of America as we’ve known it. Still, some good art was made, some damn fine music to be had. Here’s my year end offering from a small patch of it… NOTE: I stayed away from soundtracks, compilations and reissues, tho’ many good things were to be had (e.g. Scott Walker, Close to the Noise Floor, and Coil and Yoko Ono, respectively). FALSE START Buy New or Used via Amazon    Rent via iTunes [?] David Bowie – Blackstar (ISO Records) I really can’t include…
