A Stephen Stills fan compares Stills to Lindsey:

I tend to compare him to Lindsey Buckingham in the sense that they are two musicians who know exactly what they want every instrument to sound like, and will even play it themselves if necessary. They both have an amazing ability to mix beauty and harmony with intensity and drama. They also come from band situations whose soap opera-like tabloid fodder sometimes outshines the music unfortunately.

Aliens Ate His Buick: Though he's mostly known for a ubiquitous 80s pop hit that helped to get him labeled as a 'one hit wonder', Thomas Dolby is something of an unsung genius of the New Wave era -- more in common with Frank Zappa's and Lindsey Buckingham's solo work than Rick Astley. Tonight, Dolby invades the Triple Door, where he will host a small lecture, play music from his new album, A Map of the Floating City, and more than a few of his early hits. You know, like the one about the beautiful Miss Sakamoto whose science is blinding; yeah, that one.

Pinflap releases ''Carry On'' ready for Valentines Day

Dallas, Texas (MMD Newswire) February 8, 2012 -- Simply Music Management is thrilled to announce the release of Pinflap's (Gregory Wooldridge) second album "Carry On", available worldwide from Feb 9 ready for Valentine's Day.

Carry On by Pinflap features 16 original songs plus two bonus tracks. Carry On takes us on an emotional journey with lyrics that touch the heart of all who have experienced life's highs and lows. Never before released songs 'She's a Dream' and 'One in a Million' make a perfect Valentine's Day gift. "Carry On is a compilation of songs written over the last year about life's journey", said Pinflap,"I was inspired by internationally acclaimed John Mayer to complete the album".

Pinflap music appeals to all generations and with a growing fan base crossing several continents Pinflap new CD will be sold worldwide from all major e-retailers and CD Baby.

Pinflap (Gregory Wooldridge) has been writing music for about 28 years. At the age of 21, he brought a used acoustic guitar and taught himself how to play. Three months later he was in a band and went on to perform as part of renowned Cadillac Cowboys. More recently Pinflap has been carving out a successful international solo career as a singer/songwriter and acoustic guitarist.

In an industry often permeated with mixers and voice synthesizers it is refreshing to hear the raw talent of a singer/songwriter acoustic guitarist who sounds as good live as he does on his newly released album.

Pinflap credits Lindsey Buckingham, James Taylor and Ian Anderson, and more recently John Mayer as musicians who inspired his career. One amazing fact about Pinflap is that he never uses a pick similar to Lindsay Buckingham acoustic rhythm. His unique style is hauntingly beautiful and simplistic but yet it is complex if not impossible to emulate.

Simply Music management, based in Australia, Texas USA and London UK has released 'Carry On' for worldwide distribution.

Ron Gibbs is a nostalgic futurist who makes ambient dub in the style of the Orb or Aphex Twin

Paul Lester, Monday 27 February 2012 09.59 EST

Slow, drifiting technoscapes … RxGibbs

Hometown: Michigan.

The lineup: Ron Gibbs (music, production).

The background: There are probably better genres of music to enjoy right now than ambient dub as the weather improves and thoughts drift (a key word here) towards summer, but we can't think of any. Michigan producer Ron Gibbs, who operates as RxGibbs, is a nostalgic futurist, his electronic reveries made using modern technology and evoking memories of the/his past. It recalls that style of music popular in critical circles 20 years ago (and not from Seattle or "Madchester") – the slow, drifting (told you) technoscapes of Seefeel, and those artists involved in the early UK dance scene who had mental or musical links with shoegazing and/or 70s psychedelia and prog, such as the Orb. Says Gibbs: "I've always drawn inspiration from bands like Seefeel, Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, Andrew Weatherall's projects, the Orb and such. These were the bands that blew my mind way back in high school." One of his tracks, High Moon, from the Disclosure EP, sounds like something Weatherall might have recorded for Primal Scream circa Screamadelica. That album is another touchstone for Gibbs, although he's more into the sonics of the era than the messianic posturing. He thinks early Verve produced "some of the most beautiful music ever" and digs the musicianship of guitarist Nick McCabe and bassist Simon Jones, but believes Richard Ashcroft "is the one that ruined them in the end".

There are also probably better labels for Gibbs to release his music on right now than Cascine, but we can't think of any. Cascine is the New York-London label whose acts, such as Chad Valley, Selebrities and Jensen Sportag, we've been saying appreciative things about recently. They don't have a label sound as such – although Factory meets early Warp isn't far off – but they do have a label "feel": it's the sheen that celebrates itself. And they have managed, with their stylish sleeve designs, to convey that feel even in this no-product, digital-only age.

Cascine's signature look and sound are instantly recognisable in RxGibbs's latest EP, Futures. It's his third, as far as we can tell, and first for Cascine, preceded as it was by the Disclosure and Bleu Celeste EPs. We tried listening to the latter pair on his Bandcamp, but that site appears to be experiencing problems, so we downloaded them instead. There is a marked progression from his early work to Futures, even if it's of the slow-evolving kind. If anything, his music has become poppier, less chillout than chillwave. Sometimes, this poppiness is subtle: the title cut and Lumiere are like backing tracks for fully fledged songs, while Proxy has the melancholy motion of New Order's best wan disco. It goes on and on, yet you still feel sad when it stops. Silver starts off dreamy then speeds up to become the Fleetwood Mac-in-space we were expecting from Chad Valley's side project Jonquil. The final track, Split Infinity, is in the same vein: electronic MOR, a blur or blend of Selected Ambient Works and Tusk. If Aphex Twin and Lindsey Buckingham ever did a mashup for Cascine, here's some idea of the result.

The buzz: "Luscious, heavenly ambience".

The truth: Time once again for Cascine to be heard.

Most likely to: Have an ever growing pulsating brain.

Least likely to: Become addicted to cocaine.

What to buy: The Futures EP is available now on Cascine – digital release only.

File next to: The Orb, Seefeel, Washed Out, Andrew Weatherall.


Tuesday's new band: Smiler.

The Norton Report picked 10 songs for this week in a "New Music for Old People" column. Lindsey was mentioned.

2. "Rolene" — Moon Martin (3:05)

This is an obscurity by one of the great unknown power pop geniuses who somehow avoided stardom. He wrote classics such as “Cadillac Walk,” “Bad Case of Loving You,” “Victim of Romance,” and “Paid the Price.” Even those covers by Mink DeVille, Robert Palmer, Michelle Phillips, and Nick Lowe did not uncover his shroud of secrecy. This is MY favorite Moon track from the mid-'70s and I’m sure Lindsay Buckingham was a Moon fan based on this track alone.

Rocco DeLuca – Drugs ‘n Hymns (2012)

Posted by Nick DeRiso

To be so organic, so uninhibited and free — during the song “Amen,” Rocco DeLuca actually turns from the microphone, filling the room around him with a howling lament — Drugs ‘n Hymns is often grounded by the familiar.

That gives this record both its magic, and its heft.

DeLuca, who’s been leading a blues rock-informed outfit called the Burden for the last few years, unplugs for this idiosyncratic solo excursion, due on March 6 from 429 Records. That brings him nose to nose with his finely drawn characters’ highs and lows, the moments when something life altering is understood for the first time.

Still, as distinctive as Drugs ‘n Hymns can sometimes be, with its echoing Dobro amidst spacious settings, DeLuca is clearly aware of the long path that brought him to this place. You hear bits and pieces of his musical influences, and these strands serve as buttresses when DeLuca starts playing fast and loose with song structures.

Tracks like “My My” and “Snake Oil Salesman” boast the same kind of barely controlled anger found on fellow Californian Lindsey Buckingham’s 1970s-era acoustic sides, right down to the banjo-inspired guitar signatures. The instrumental “Sibylle,” with its solemnly looped rhythm backing, resonates like the best atmospheric rock of Daniel Lanois. The trippy “The Stride Like Gods,” later in the album, takes this concept to its apocalyptic endgame, stirring in backwards snippets of music that sweep from one end of the audio spectrum to the other, all over an ominously rumbling backbeat, until the song eventually dissolves into a wordless hum. “Gorky,” the final instrumental on Drugs ‘n’ Hymns, sounds like a far-off moan, barely heard but distinctly felt.

Top Ten Reasons We Can't Get Enough National Lampoon's Vacation

Top Ten Reasons We Can't Get Enough National Lampoon's Vacation - AMC Blog - AMC

John Hughes's genius and Lindsay Buckingham's snappy, toe-tapping tune are just a couple of the reasons to love this comedy classic.

Top Ten Reasons We Can't Get Enough National Lampoon's Vacation

Few comedies have enjoyed the legacy that National Lampoon's Vacation has. It was one of the highest grossing comedies of all time when released in 1983 and it has kicked off one of the most successful franchises in movie history. So what makes the story of the Griswold family so great? Here are ten reasons we can't get enough National Lampoon's Vacation.

10. Sightseeing Made Easy
Much of the movie is filmed on location. With shots of sites like the Grand Canyon, Death Valley, and the St. Louis Arch, watching Vacation is like taking a road trip without having to pay for gas -- or ride in a Truckster.

9. A 15-Year-Old Jane Krakowski
As cousin Vicki, Krakowski makes her movie debut by defending her French-kissing prowess: "But Daddy says I'm the best at it." Even as a teen, the future 30 Rock star has the earnest delivery of the absurd that is her trademark.

8. Misery Loves Company
Your troubles will never be as bad as the Griswolds. You've probably dealt with nutty relatives, but hopefully you never had to tie a dead one to the roof rack. And have you ever left a dog leashed to the bumper and driven away? Well, at least you're not alone.

8. Christie Brinkley vs. Beverly D'Angelo
In this corner, the hottest supermodel of the '80s. In the other, one of the greatest MILFs of all time. Both of them have a thing for Clark W. Griswold. How did a "genius with food additives" get so lucky? Who cares. These lovely ladies provide Vacation with spice.

6. The Rollercoaster Ride
The excitement. The fear. The nausea. Director Harold Ramis captured the many realities of a great amusement park ride by having the actors ride this repeatedly to get the right shot. The result is priceless.

5. John Hughes' Imaginative Genius
Leave it to John Hughes to take a childhood experience and turn it into a work of comedic gold. Hughes's screenplay is based on an unfortunate family trip he took to Disneyland as a boy. (Who hasn't had to sit next to an elderly relative that smells like mothballs?)

4. Last Minute Intro of John Candy
The original ending (Clark kidnaps Mr. Walley) didn't go over with test-audiences, so director Harold Ramis called on former SCTV castmate John Candy to shoot a last-minute alternative. His hilarious turn as a Walley World security kicked off Candy's big-screen career.

3. "Holiday Ro-o-o-o-o-o-o-o- o-oad"
Lindsay Buckingham, the guitarist from Fleetwood Mac, recorded "Holiday Road" -- now synonymous with the Vacation franchise -- with a chorus so upbeat it can instantly turn a frown upside down.

2. "This Is a Quest For Fun!"
After innumerable disasters, Ellen, Rusty, and Audrey want go home. But Clark's not having it! What follows is the most hilarious pep-talk ever: "This is no longer a vacation. It's a quest. It's a quest for fun... We're all gonna have so much f**king fun we'll need plastic surgery to remove our goddamn smiles." He's right.

1. Quintessential Chevy Chase
Few actors can pull off what Chase does. His performance is simultaneously heartfelt and hysterical. A nostalgic tear in his eye while having a man-to-man talk with Rusty can quickly disappear with impeccable comedic timing. Chase's Clark may be a buffoon, but he's also the lovable lug we'd gladly follow anywhere -- and have been doing so for over 30 years ago.

Can't Get Enough National Lampoon's Vacation starts on Mon. Mar. 5 at 8/7c.

What Would Lindsey Buckingham Do? [I like the title of this Austinist interview!]

Excerpt from Interview with Katy Goodman:

Was there anything you were listening to when you were writing this last album in particular?

Fleetwood Mack. We were listening to Fleetwood Mack a lot you know when we were recording, like when we would try to find a good guitar tone. It would kind of be like, what would Lindsey Buckingham do? We would use a lot of guitar tones that were pretty influenced by Fleetwood Mac.

Masterpieces made of other people's songs
Masterpieces made of other people's songs

The best - sustained - case of playing dress-up with someone else's songs that I've ever heard, an album I regularly return to, is She Loves You by The Twilight Singers. Have you heard it? It's the third album by Twilight Singers, a group that started as a side-project for Greg Dulli (of Afghan Whigs).


The absolute standouts, for me, are the version of Bjork's Hyperballad (especially given the original is an amazing piece, one of Bjork's best songs) and the cover of Lindsey Buckingham's What Makes You Think You're the One. On Tusk it might just be another song, one you either love or loathe (or are unaware of/indifferent to). But here Dulli gives it a push in the right direction toward accessibility - really giving the lyric a chance to shine in all its pathetic self-absorption.

Lindsey Snippets
Is there another Lindsey snippets thread?

Here's a mention by Dominic Miller, Sting's guitarist.

there is a lindsey-nuggets thread somewhere that i'm lazy to look for...

so here's another recent lindsey-mention from - The Fun Won't Last:

Number one used to look for rock. Now it couldn't find it with a search party.

But fun. somehow stumbled upon numero uno. The bestselling song of 2012 is upbeat and uplifting. Singer Nate Ruess does Lindsey Buckingham impersonating Freddie Mercury. The main instrument here is his theatrical voice.
