McKagan's Music Playlist
The Life asked columnist Duff McKagan to give us a glimpse into what music he has been listening to lately. Here's what he had to say:
In 1996, with the average age of the band being 16, Loudermilk
made their first LP "Man With Gun." Given the age of this band, this first record was an insanely majestic and dark record that started the inevitable major-label bidding war.
The result was "The Red Record"
(iTunes | Amazon), made down in Los Angeles in 2000 and 2001 with the full host of "it" producers of that time. This record is amazing, and of course it died a quick death. It was just too different then, I suppose. May I present, Loudermilk:
"Estrogen, Oxygen, Aches In My Teeth Again" ("The Red Record")
"California" ("The Red Record")
"Kreates A Presence To Blush" ("The Red Record")
In my opinion, every song on this record is special and different and really, anything I would have to comment on any of them would be just dumb words … pale and hollow if set against this majestic body of musical work. http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/thelife/music/news/story?id=6102209
