From the amazing Gentlemen album. Great bottom heavy riff at the outro. A good New Order cover from a short-lived band. A barn-burning rendition of the Jesus and Mary Chain college rock staple. This concert staple from this quirky band who sadly broke up is just badass. Too bad it was never included on an album. This band has done a bunch of great covers, but their versions of Cocteau Twins and Sade respectively , are true gems.
Check out my review of their new album. Speaking of Iggy, Siouxie and co. He starts like a crooner, continues with the kind of sinister voice John Wayne Gacy might have used to lure victims into the basement, and climaxes by proving that he can really, really sing. It's possible this song invented System Of A Down all by itself.
Getting into Voivod is like staring at a Magic Eye puzzle; defocus properly and a whole new dimension comes into being. Bringing in s sci-fi sound effects and lusher textures to orbit around their off-kilter axis, Jack Luminous 's slower pace allowed an easier entry point into their spectacular compound-eye vision of thrash dystopia.
In an album where every track is a delicious celebration of dirge, Honey Bucket is in irresistible highlight. Known to most people thanks to its inclusion in the Mortal Kombat soundtrack, Twist The Knife came at a time when Napalm Death were once again evolving and changing into a new form. An entirely different line-up and approach it may be from the 'classic' Scum -era material, but this is still a typically teeth rattling seconds of Napalm.
Taken from the band's sophomore album, Thus Spake The Nightspirit is a prime example of how Ihsahn and co. Now things just got serious … and therefore I accept any criticism for having this track so high in the countdown. The label only released six albums before shutting down, however set the stage for other groundbreaking artist-run labels like Strata-East and Black Jazz. Dom Um Romao was a Brazilian jazz drummer, percussionist and composer who released a number of brilliant recordings during the mid-seventies. Words of wisdom … never pass on a Dom Um Romao record.

Definitely a personal favorite. Composer, vibraphonist, and vocalist Roy Ayers is one of the greatest jazz-funk musicians of our time.
Probably the funkiest recording from Czech jazz bassist, who was also one of the co-founders of Weather Report and contributor in the Roy Ayers Quartet. An incredible groove-heavy gem from Serbian composer and pianist Bora Rokovic. Recorded in a trio setting and released on MPS Records, the track features a deep funk bass line from German bassist Peter Trunk that lays the foundation for the piece.
Included on the album Ultra Native , the hard-to-find album usually goes for a few hundred dollars these days. An all-time classic that sounds as if it was recorded during an outer space mission to the moon.
