Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

D.C.3

 RE-UPLOADED FEBRUARY 28, 2013

I just want to say that D.C.3 are the shit! They were years ahead of their time by playin' RAWK & paying respects to the bands & musicians that had rocked their world. Musick to 'excite us', what a fucking concept. I sometimes listen to one of my albums, one I had nearly worn out playing in its heyday & now find it sounding dated. I listen to D.C.3 & think how fresh they sound, how of this moment. I hope you all will give them a listen, they surely know how to entertain the brain.

This Is the Dream








This first albums features: Dez Cadena (Black Flag, Redd Kross) - guitar, vocals, backing vocals; Paul Roessler(45 Grave, Twisted Roots) - bass keyboard, keyboards, backing vocals, lead vocal on "Dance of the Imbeciles"; & Kurt Markham - drums.

On This Is the Dream, Dez writes:

"D.C.3 started out a concept - a group of friends getting together in the studio to record an album in the style of the records that used to excite us when we were young (such as Deep Purple's Machinehead, Captain Beyond, Humble Pie, Mountain, etc...You get the idea). In this, our very first recording effort, I think we've accomplished that goal. I appreciate all the people & bands that helped put love, & other strange emotions, in my heart."

D.C.3 - THIS IS THE DREAM, SST 033 ,1985.

The third album features Dez & Paul, but now includes Ceasar Viscarra(bass) & Louie Dufau(drums). These two had played together in the seminal 1980's speedrock band The Stains. They added a new & dynamic element to D.C.3 (still called 3 even with 4 - kool). They joined prior to D.C.3's second release The Good Hex. On this third outing, the bands sound has matured & although it is at heart an homage to great 70s rockers, there are deeper elements at play. There are hints of Mississippi blues, R&B, free jazz, & punk rock.

Reviewing a D.C.3 show at Café Modé for Public News, John Lee wrote:

"The new D.C.3 is even better than before evidenced by their superlative performance at Café Modé last weekend...For those of us longing for a group that can deliver hyperspace rock like no one since Hawkwind, D.C.3 comes close."

    1. to thomas_tirrell,

      I'll see if I have the files archived, if not I'll have to dig out the records & re-rip them, which could take a bit longer. probably be able to do it some time this week-end.

      I will pretty much re-up anything that has disappeared into the aether with the take-down of MegaUpload & the fucktardization of MediaFire & Rapidshare, as long as I still have it. If I ripped it from vinyl that i once owned, then I still have it. I mighty anal about my vinyl.

      Thanks & check back later. I'll try to also drop you an email.

    1. You need to try hooking up with Donut Duck, the first commenter above. I do not have The Good Hex. Sorry. The only other DC3 I have is Vida.

      Delete
    2. There is some re-upped Painted Willie over at Wilfully Obscure.

      Delete
    3. Checked. Picked what was offered and I didn't have. However, he is reluctant to post "Mind Bowling" due to some recent reissue. So, if you have that one ... Regards, d.

      Delete
    4. I would have the same reluctance if there is a recent re-issue. Sorry

      Delete
  11. "Vida" would also be nice, if you come around to rip it and post it. Kind regards, D.
