noise musings / Metal Machine Music

The guy that lives down in the basement room diagonal to mine on the ground floor of the house says his light shakes and flickers when I play my guitar. Heh. That gave me warm fuzzy feelings. Sometimes I turn it down a bit to avoid my ears ringing. Always wanting to hear more. Damn wimpy human ears. So good to be rattled. What percentage of noise artists have how much hearing loss? They've gotta be wearing ear plugs when they play out at least.

One or two loopers and I'm eating Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music for breakfast for sure. Just more constant clear drones that I need. Though it was the first noise album put out by such a widely recognizable name. Is he still the best known musician to put out a noise album? Correct me if I'm wrong. I want to get it on vinyl. I read that it has a locked groove on the end of the very last part. I would hope that it still does that on the new vinyl. Don't know. Lots of other albums I'd shoot to get on vinyl first. But just sayin.

Droning or not, noise freak-outs can be so much fun.

*edit* From the wikipedia entry: "The album was ranked number two in the 1991 book The Worst Rock 'n' Roll Records of All Time by Jimmy Guterman and Owen O'Donnell. [1] Only Elvis Presley's concert byplay album Having Fun With Elvis On Stage ranked worse. The book gives sympathy to legendary record cutting engineer Bob Ludwig for having to listen to the album in its entirety. In 2005, Q magazine included the album in a list of "Ten Terrible Records by Great Artists", and ranked number three in Q's fifty worst albums of all time list."

Hehe. It's the only Lou Reed album I wish to own.
