Not sure how many of you here are Pogues fans, but the band's long-time member Phil Chevron passed away yesterday morning after a long battle with cancer. My wife and I were lucky enough to catch them in Baltimore on their Parting Glass Tour, and it was an absolutely fantastic show. In spite of how much Shane has deteriorated over the years, the rest of the band was as spry as ever in spite of their age. And if you aren't sure as to which member of the band Phil is, he's the one who looks like a leprechaun.

& this one
Listening to Dinosaur Jr.'s debut, self-titled record (or was self-titled before they added the "Jr." to their name), which is pretty good. I'm more familiar with their reunion material, "Beyond," "Farm," and "I Bet on Sky," which are all pretty amazing records. "Dinosaur" is a little slower and a good bit more lo-fi, which I kinda like. J doesn't do the killer guitar soloes like he does on the band's later records, though, but then again this is 1985....
The LP is gone now, but if you're a fan of Dinosaur Jr., check out their live album "Chocomel Daze," which was recorded in '87. A number of their songs from "Dinosaur" are on that record but are a good bit faster, heavier, and just downright better. You can get it on iTunes, Amazon, or directly from Merge Records in digital format (it comes with a digital booklet if you get it from Merge and at a better price than iTunes).
