    Like a bright satruday morning with the house to yourself for a few hours. Coffee in hand and no pressing jobs...The following will add the requisite grin in these parts.

    Shellac - At Action Park (better still, the bog standard vinyl is 180g audiophile and the bass will spill your coffee)
    Fugazi - In On The Kill Taker
    My Bloody Valentine - Loveless (Plain records 180g reissue blows the Creation original out of the water)
    The Jesus Lizard - Liar (So well recorded its like having a drumkit in your living room).
    Lightning Bolt - Hypermagic Mountain (Live in the sudio, direct to 30 ips, 2 track. Absolutely pulverising).

    Any suggestions ? I can feel a saturday morning coming on.

    I listen to all my music that loud :eek:

    Nitin Sawheny is good for moving air. Armor for Sleep is good loud. Maroon 5. Limp Bizkit. They all need to be loud!

    Not sure - will have to give it some thought! Too many to list, but I'll be able to crank my system loud for a few days at the end of Dec/early Jan, as no-one else will be home. Looking forward to it, as since getting my amp back in September, I've not had a chance to play it cranked up much.

    Maroon 5 :yikes: :inferno: :laser:

    At the moment, Bizzy B the science Ep vol 3 & 4 is pretty good for shifting some air, great D'n'B/breaks with some nice deep notes.

    Maroon 5 is really well recorded and has awesome tight bass :) Plus it is mixed by the son of Andy Wallace!

    Maroon 5 I need to listen to, seem them live and was (most surprisingly) impressed by them, and have their album a brief spin a while back...sounded a decent recording :)

    As for music which i 'move some air with', the stuff that I'll really turn up the wick when I'm listening to it, well the following feature pretty prominently at the moment...

    Pixies - Bossanova

    Oasis - Familiar To Millions / Definitely Maybe

    Anything by Prodigy

    Anything by Pulley (skate punk type band...think Offspring cross bred with Green Day cross bred with Blink 182. Might not appeal to you all admittedly :p but well recorded grinding guitars)

    Pendulum - Hold Your Colour (drum'n'bass needs to be played at ungodly loud volumes to do it justice).

    :)

    And it has all the little messages round the middle :) My Plain Loveless isn't very good though, picks up scratches too easily.
    Do you have the argument by fugazi? Still fugazi but proper pop punk type guitar solos and stuff, love it. And Repeater!
    And the Black Eyes self titled. Has to be played as loud as possibly.

    Prob #1 for blowing cobwebs out of a system would be "LFO" by LFO. It's so much it's actually too much.

    Other great candidates to go to 11...

    "When the lights go down" High Contrast

    "All My Life" Foo Fighters (One by One)

    I saw Maroon 5 live as well about 1 year ago. They sounded good but at first his voice sounded really funny! As he looked different as well I thought 'Thats not Adam Lavine!' but I think he was just missing some studio effects. After a while he sounded better anyway.. or maybe that was just the effect of the girl I was with!

    Yeah, The Argument is good but in a more refined and melodic way. I prefer the full on assault of songs like Casavettes and Smallpox Champion. I never really rated Repeater but a lot of people say it's their favourite.

    I've just thought of another one too: McClusky Do Dallas

    What are Black Eyes like ?

    Black Eyes sound like a complete disaster :) Its got the kind of Magic Band thing where they all seem to be playing different songs but it just comes together at certain points in the bar, either in complete agreement or total dischordance but they've applied that to the Dischord punk sound, and funnily enough they're on dischord. Its absolute noise, really really good. Pack of Wolves is genius. Its very well produced/recorded too, Ian Mackay does it

    ...really moving some air...

    At The Drive-In - Arcarsenal

    Black Sabbath - Symptom Of The Universe

    Chemical Brothers - Setting Sun

    Metallica - Enter Sandman

    Ministry - Jesus Built My Hotrod

    Underworld - Cowgirl

    Consider the air well and truly moved then...

    How could I forget. Also dont forget the A side "Rez" which is equally up to the job.

    Yes!

    Definitely! Great album.

    I also picked up a copy of the Dirty Epic / Cowgirl cd a while back. This has three mixes of each, together with Rez and Rivers Of Bass. Lovely

    Hopefully he hasn't inherited his father's fondnes for compressing the living daylights out the stereo master. Sorry. It's not personal but I find his mixes pretty hard to take. They sound loud, sure but all the drama is lost in the quest for broadcast friendliness.

    In Utero vs. Nevermind ? Albini 1 Wallace 0.

    Thats not the fault of the mix engineer, it is due to the mastering. Unfortunately the mix engineer rarely has control over this. Neither does the mastering engineer really due to penny pushers!

    Andy Wallace is pretty much my idle lol! When his work has been well mastered you get such greats as the first Rage Against the Machine album. I wish he was my dad :D
