Like I said, truly the sounds of a man who had lost each and everyone of his marbles.

SmileySmile.net have been doing some neat covers of BB songs (they've made their own thread for e-collaboration: http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php/topic,13804.0.html). So far they've done Add Some Music To Your Day and I Went To Sleep.

Had never even heard of this song until today. It's rather good: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5peXgyakkXo

Breakaway was actually a single and there's plenty of film of them performing it. Also Brian's last producer credit in the classic era.

Brian Wilson's solo album That Lucky Old Sun is actually really good. Not very complex and a little over-sweet (and the whole Lucky Old Sun motif itself doesn't really work), but for someone Brian's age it's got a lot of energy and the man sounds like he's having a lot of fun. It's no Smile but it's hella decent.

While digging through my vinyl collection, I found my copy of Endless Summer.

Burn that thing and all that it stands for.

It's not their compilation album's fault that it gave them a bloated view of themselves, it's their own fault. If anything needs to be burned for what it stands for, it's obviously Full House DVDs are what need to go.

Mike Love's ill-advised speech at the Beach Boy's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction of 1988, in which he makes inexplicably hate-filled potshots at his rivals in the business, including the Beatles (who he refers to as "the mop-tops") and Mick Jagger (who he calls "chickenshit"). Prominent musicians like Jagger and George Harrison were in the room during the speech, and the other band members can be seen embarrassed; Bob Dylan reportedly said "I'm glad he didn't mention me."

I'd never seen this clip until today but for me it really shows the other side of Mike; the jealous and aggressive part of him is exposed uncomfortably clearly here.
