R.I.P. bob bogle (1934-2009)

the ventures have been called the most successful instrumental band of all time.
a good bit of that is due to the shimmy and whammy of bob bogle's surf guitar.
bogle died of non-hodgkins lymphoma at the age of 75.

a true innovator...

phil spector mug shot

oh dear lord.

are these really phil's two choices? this look or the afro wig?

this is "courtesy" of the smoking gun

prepare your coffin

great new video from tortoise for their instrumental "prepare your coffin"
sumptuous black and white photography of fairly banal patterns of san francisco.
they are from chicago, but i guess sam jones + wilco already did similar with that town.
directed by andrew paynter + JUICE
cinematography by dan wolfe

tortoise is playing the great american, 07.13.
