The Alligator Wine - Shotgun

Friday, lets release THE ALLIGATOR WINE that will take you to a psychedelic journey into a dark yet groovy space. Inpsired by early 70s music, horror movies and fashion those two guys from the Black Forest pump out everything from creepy dark tunes to 70s disco grooves.

But THE ALLIGATOR WINE manage to merge their deep spaces and distorted grooves into supercatchy and great songs that can spice up any party or funeral! And the coolest part: It's only two people and there are no guitars at all! They just need a Hammond organ, a Moog bass, Drums and a lot of weird effects to create their unique sound.

THE ALLIGATOR WINE were founded in 2016 as an experimental Krautrock project by: Rob Vitacca (voice, organ, moog bass, percussion) and. Thomas Teufel (drums, spooky voice) Combining the vibes of experimental 70s music with a certain, modern pop appeal was the goal.

Today's tune "Shotgun" is taken from the album "Demons Of The Mind", release April 24th, 2020. The Video was Directed by Hannes Greve

Kadavar - The Green Manalishi (With the Two Prong Crown)

Thursday, time for a cover.

"The Green Manalishi (With the Two Prong Crown)" is a song written by Peter Green and recorded by FLEETWOOD MAC. It was released as a single in the UK in May 1970 and reached No. 10 on the British charts, a position it occupied for four consecutive weeks. "The Green Manalishi" was the last song Green made with Fleetwood Mac before leaving the band.

The song was written during Green's final months with the band, at a time when he was struggling with LSD and had withdrawn from other members of the band. While there are several theories about the meaning of the title "Green Manalishi", Green always maintained that the song is about money, as represented by the devil. Green was reportedly angered by the other band members' refusal to share their financial gains.

Green has explained that he wrote the song after experiencing a drug-induced dream in which he was visited by a green dog which barked at him. He understood that the dog represented money. "It scared me because I knew the dog had been dead a long time. It was a stray and I was looking after it. But I was dead and had to fight to get back into my body, which I eventually did. When I woke up, the room was really black and I found myself writing the song." He also said that he wrote the lyrics the following day, in Richmond Park. Supposedly, he was unable to record Robert Johnson's "Hellhound on My Trail" following the incident, having conflated Johnson's hellhound with the green dog-demon of his dream.[citation needed] This is supported by his discography, in which Green's sole post-Manalishi cover of "Hellhound" was sung by bandmate Nigel Watson.

Today's version is made by the german rock band KADAVAR, taken from the new split single where they are teaming up with LUCIFER for a limited split 7“. Both bands dug through their records and chose a classic track to cover. KADAVAR recorded a version of "The Green Manalishi (With The Two Prong Crown) by FLEETWOOD MAC and on LUCIFERs side, you´ll hear "Pull Away / So Many Times" by DUST. Limited to 1500 total with 5 different color options. Enjoy today's cover of "The Green Manalishi (With the Two Prong Crown)"

Osees - Chem Farmer / Nite Expo

Back in September last year, OSEES performed a blistering set out in the desert at Pappy & Harriet’s, which aired on the LEVITATION Sessions streaming series.

The live album is now being pressed on 3 limited vinyl pressings via The Reverberation Appreciation Society record label. OSEES and the label are donating 100% of proceeds to independent music venues. Music venues have been hit particularly hard by the Covid-19 pandemic, with many in danger of closing their doors permanently. Unfortunately some have already.

“Lots of old favorites and 7 never before performed live hits from the crypt recorded dusk till dawn in Pioneertown, California its raw and shreddy with a bit of elastic improvisation thrown in and this is meant to be played loud”

"Levitation Sessions" is Mastered by JJ Golden Recorded outside Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown California. Engineered by Enrique Tena Padilla. Mixed by Enrique and JPD.

"During this particularly hard year, it was a pleasure to work with our good friends over at Levitation and Pappy and Harriet's to reach out to some of our fans, if only for a fleeting hour. This is the proper plastic that came from that evening. We are trying to keep some of our favorite haunts, dives, glorious old venues and bars open through this triail, as it's obvious the lizards that make up the current administration have no real interest in extending any realistic help to struggling businesses.

Venues have been hit particularly hard by this and without them, there is no this is a small token of appreciation and a grassroots effort to lend a helping hand in their time of need. Take care, be well and keep your eyes on the horizon."

Today's tune "Chem Farmer / Nite Expo" is from "Levitation Sessions", released October 9, 2020.

Coogans Bluff - Gadfly

After "Flying To The Stars" now a stopover in "Metronopolis". The band's seventh album, if you count their live double album. From album to album, new musical components gain weight, others become smaller, less important or disappear completely: we find krautrock, progressive, fusion on the flight routes, but also spacerock, psychedelic or blues rock. In old course books you can even read about stoner rock, funk and heavy. But COOGANS BLUFF always remained recognizable. A self-explanatory band that certainly rocks retro, but sounds fresh, contemporary and, above all, independent. A band that calls itself a reference. And "Metronopolis" is their next stop in the rock universe.

Charlie Paschen Drums, Vocals, Farfisa, Mellotron
Clemens Marasus Vocals, Bass Guitar
Willi Paschen Electric Guitars, Acoustic Guitars
Max Thum Saxophone
Stefan Meinking Trombone, Moog

Check today's rocker "Gadfly" out and you will hear the marvelous Saxophone over the heavy riffs, just brilliant.

"Metronopolis" was released January 24, 2020. Recorded by Andi Bückle at Studio Wong, Berlin, additional recording and mixed by Charlie Paschen at Charlies Studio, Leipzig. Mastered by Willi Dammeier at Institut für Wohlklangforschung, Hannover. Artwork by Sara Bock and Christoph Kukla Photographs by Jakob Adolphi

Today's tune "Gadfly", taken from "Metronopolis", enjoy!
