Now back to a trio, and using the Heaven And Earth Magic score as a starting place, Deerhoof began recording a new album in summer 2006. Matsuzaki, Saunier, and Dieterich did not divide their contributions according to their onstage roles, and each contributed percussion, guitar, bass, keyboards and production.  It was mostly recorded in Dieterich’s Oakland apartment, between a concert tour with The Flaming Lips and another with Radiohead. Self-produced as usual, some portions were recorded once again by Jay and Ian Pellicci. It was mixed on computer, largely while on tour. Friend Opportunity was released in January 2007 on Kill Rock Stars.  Its 12 interchangeable cover paintings were by Scottish artist David Shrigley. The album was highly praised in Pitchfork and Rolling Stone, and nominated for a PLUG Award by Ric Ocasek.

During the same time period, they began working with director Justin Theroux on the soundtrack to Dedication, released in fall 2007. Friend Opportunity track “Matchbook Seeks Maniac” was written by Saunier specifically for the end credits of Dedication. The film featured various songs and excerpts from Deerhoof albums, and the Dedication Film Soundtrack featured four tracks by Deerhoof.

During the world tour that followed Friend Opportunity’s release, Deerhoof was invited by David Bowie to play the Highline Festival in New York City. They also opened for The Roots, The Flaming Lips, and Bloc Party, and they made their network television debut on Last Call with Carson Daly.

Monster X were a straight edge grind band from Albany, New York.

The band formed in 1992 out of the ashes of Intent, and PNA. Members of MX Went on to play in Dropdead, Devoid Of Faith, Das Oath, and By The Throat. The Band were one of the few straightedge bands not playing the typical mosh core sound of the time period. Instead the band played fast, brutal guttural powerviolence grindcore.

MX were also known for their thought provoking lyrics, which took on many of the political and social issues of the day. On top of that they wrote about their personal choice to live a drug-free straight edge life. They wrote about their support for the legalization of drugs, and their intolerance for organized religion. The krishna movement had become pretty big within thehardcore punk scene at this time. Monster X made it known how they felt about religion in punk rock.

Vocalist John Moran Did many of the bands releases on his label Hater Of God. Guitarist Nate Wilson did the posi youth 7” on his label Gloom Records.

The band played their final show in 1998 at the Monster X house with Dropdead, and Skinless.

a double LP popularly known as the White Album for its virtually featureless cover. Creative inspiration for the album came from an unexpected quarter when, with Epstein’s guiding presence gone, the group turned to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi as their guru. At his ashram in Rishikesh, India, a three-month “Guide Course” became one of their most creative periods, yielding a large number of songs including most of the thirty recorded for the album. Starr left after ten days, likening it to Butlins, and McCartney eventually grew bored with the procedure and departed a month later. For Lennon and Harrison, creativity turned to questioning when Yanni Alexis Mardas, the electronics technician dubbed Magic Alex, suggested that the Maharishi was attempting to manipulate the group. After Mardas alleged that the Maharishi had made sexual advances to women attendees, Lennon was persuaded and left abruptly, taking the unconvinced Harrison and the remainder of the group’s entourage with him.  In his anger Lennon wrote a pointed song called “Maharishi”, but later modified it to avoid a legal suit, resulting in “Sexy Sadie”. McCartney said, “We made a mistake. We thought there was more to him than there was.”

“While My Guitar Gently Weeps” Sample of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” from The Beatles (1968). Arock ballad among songs of a variety of other genres on the album. “Helter Skelter” Sample of “Helter Skelter” from The Beatles (1968). The album’s music ranges from the musique concrètecomposition “Revolution 9” to the “proto-metal roar” of this song. Problems listening to these files? See media help. During recording sessions for the album, which stretched from late May to mid-October 1968, relations among the band’s members grew openly divisive. Starr quit for a period, leaving McCartney to perform drums on several tracks. Lennon’s romantic preoccupation with avant-garde artist Yoko Ono contributed to tension within the band and he lost interest in co-writing with McCartney. Flouting the group’s well-established understanding that they would not take partners into the studio, Lennon insisted on bringing Ono, anyway disliked by Harrison, to all of the sessions. Increasingly contemptuous of McCartney’s creative input, he began to identify the latter’s compositions as “granny music”, dismissing “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da” as “granny shit”. Recalling the White Album sessions, Lennon gave a curiously foreshortened summing-up of the band’s history from that point on, saying, “It’s like if you took each track off it and made it all mine and all Paul’s… just me and a backing group, Paul and a backing group, and I enjoyed it. We broke up then.” McCartney also recalled that the sessions marked the start of the breakup, saying, “Up to that point, the world was a problem, but we weren’t” which had always been “the best thing about The Beatles”.  Issued in November, the White Album was the band’s first Apple Records album release. The new label was a subsidiary ofApple Corps, formed by the group on their return from India, fulfilling a plan of Epstein’s to create a tax-effective business structure. The record attracted more than two million advance orders, selling nearly four million copies in the US in little over a month, and its tracks dominated the playlists of US radio stations. Despite its popularity, it did not receive flattering reviews at the time. According to Jonathan Gould,

The critical response… ranged from mixed to flat. In marked contrast to Sgt. Pepper, which had helped to establish an entire genre of literate rock criticism, the White Album inspired no critical writing of any note. Even the most sympathetic reviewers… clearly didn’t know what to make of this shapeless outpouring of songs. Newsweek’s Hubert Saal, citing the high proportion of parodies, accused the group of getting their tongues caught in their cheeks.

General critical opinion eventually turned in favour of the White Album, and in 2003 Rolling Stone ranked it as the tenth greatest album of all time. Pitchfork describes it as “large and sprawling, overflowing with ideas but also with indulgences, and filled with a hugely variable array of material … its failings are as essential to its character as its triumphs.” Allmusic observes, “Clearly, the Beatles’ two main songwriting forces were no longer on the same page, but neither were George and Ringo”; yet “Lennon turns in two of his best ballads”, McCartney’s songs are “stunning”, Harrison is seen to have become “a songwriter who deserved wider exposure” and Starr’s composition is “a delight”.

By now the interest in Beatles lyrics was taking a serious turn. When Lennon’s song “Revolution” had been released as a single in August ahead of the White Album, its messages seemed clear: “free your mind”, and “count me out” of any talk about destruction as a means to an end. In a year characterized by student protests that stretched from Warsaw toParis to Chicago, the response from the radical left was scathing. However, the White Album version of the song, “Revolution 1”, added an extra word, “count me out … in”, implying a change of heart since the single’s release. The chronology was in fact reversed—the ambivalent album version was recorded first—but some felt that The Beatles were now saying that political violence might indeed be justifiable.

The Who are an English rock band formed in 1964. The primary lineup consisted of guitarist Pete Townshend, vocalist Roger Daltrey, bassist John Entwistle and drummer Keith Moon. They became known for energetic live performances. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990, their first year of eligibility. According to the New York Times, The Who have sold 100 million records.

The Who rose to fame in the United Kingdom with a pioneering instrument destruction stage show and a series of top ten hit singles (including “My Generation”) and top five albums, beginning in 1965 with “I Can’t Explain”. They hit the top ten in the U.S. in 1967 with “I Can See for Miles”. The 1969 release of Tommy was the first in a series of top five albums in the U.S., followed by Live at Leeds (1970), Who’s Next (1971), Quadrophenia (1973), and Who Are You (1978).

Moon died in 1978, after which the band released two studio albums, the top five Face Dances (1981) and the top ten It’s Hard (1982), with drummer Kenney Jones, before disbanding in 1983. They re-formed at events such as Live Aid and for reunion tours such as their 25th anniversary tour (1989) and the Quadrophenia tours of 1996 and 1997. In 2000, the three surviving original members discussed recording an album of new material. The plans were delayed by the death of Entwistle in 2002. Townshend and Daltrey continue to perform as The Who. In 2006 they released the studio album Endless Wire, which reached the top ten in the UK and U.S.
