The Sisters of Mercy
It's strange. I used to adore The Sisters of Mercy but now I don't really have any feelings for them at all. I put on First & Last & Always a year or so ago and it left me completely cold. Not even Some Kind of Stranger. I suppose this sort of thing is perfectly natural but I've never really noticed it happening before.  The evolution of my favouritest band in the world went something like ABBA -> Eurythmics → U2 → Sisters of Mercy → Pixies → my bloody valentine → whatever. I still really like at least some parts of the others' back catalogue.

Right now I'm listening to the classic sounds of Sharkboy's The Valentine Tapes (I wonder whatever  happened to them) but I've been listening to this quite a bit this week: A Place to Bury Strangers - Onwards to the Wall (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FSTH3ArwG4). It has a real feel of the echoey production sound of the post punk era and is all the better for it.

I dont listen to very much music if im honest, but talk of the sisters leads me to remember ive been going through a fair bit of their old stuff of late, along with the dreadful shadows, a euro band who obviously once wrote a 'dear jim, please will you fix it for us to sound like the sisters' letter, and had it answered. Oddly, despite the lack of patricia morrison (a name im entirely unable to type without seeing the video for dominion in my head and sighing with sexual pleasure) ive actually been preferring the german* clones this week.

Alright Cosh, SBT, yeah Floodland. Produced by Jim Steinman so it has a BIG sound to it. I have to be in the mood for it, otherwise I can't enjoy it. The track Marian, however, always puts a tingle up my spine.

Floodland was the first goth album i bought, and is directly responsible for most of my life up to this point, including meeting my wife and having children. And yet i dont own a copy of it anymore; the tape having snapped decades ago and all of my sisters stuff being cd singles, cd EPs and vinyl. Which doesnt help much as i dont own a record player.

Electric Six's newest album Heartbeats and Brainwaves. Wonderful stuff. This is their 8th album release in 8 years and they seem to come up with something new and diverse for each and every one. This latest one is a lot more electronic than previous offerings such as as Kill and Zodiac (which were more guitar heavy) but it works brilliantly all the same. Have had it on repeat on my ipod for about 2 weeks and just can't get bored of it.

I really need to see these guys in concert.

This is just to remind people what a record player looks like, in case you've forgotten.
Steve Jobs, who bought us iPods to listen to, always listened to his music on vinyl.
Title: Re: What's everyone listening to...?
Post by: Mudcrab on 13 February, 2012, 01:15:58 pm
Steve Jobs always listened to vinyl? He he, he's just gone up in my estimations as evil genius. "Let the fools give me all their money buying my shitty iPods. Eeeeexcellent"  :lol:

Yes, I realise that was Mr Burns' voice  :D

I just bought my first "new" record deck not long ago, so glad I did. Aside from my old one dying a death, been getting quite a few things on vinyl again recently, so much better than CDs, never mind ripoff low quality mp3s!

Did Patricia Morrison ever actually record with the sisters ? I seem to remember reading somewhere AE only had her round to look good in photos / videos and didn't actually play on Floodland?
Title: Re: What's everyone listening to...?
Post by: SmallBlueThing on 13 February, 2012, 03:30:16 pm
No, as far as I'm aware she played on 'Gift' (released by "The Sisterhood") and then 'Floodland' (by The Sisters), before buggering off due to Eldritch not paying her. She wound up at The Damned, married Dave Vanian and had a daughter, then retired.

But yes, part of her appeal to Eldritch was her looks, and how they'd benefit the band- I'd suggest someone got that a bit tangled up for whatever reason.

All your goth talk!

I'm just a fraction too young to have been caught up in all that, but by big sister osmosis I count The Mission's Children as a fave LP, if we're not taking it too seriously. Don't know how they would be doing now, though. A while ago on a Youtube hunt I was disappointed to watch pissed old fart Hussey not even being arsed to finish Black Mountain Mist, aborting it halfway.

I've followed quite a bit of Justin's work in Godflesh and Jesu he also did an album with Jarboe aswell being a fan of The Swans and i can recommend that aswell as his work in Greymachine

Saw Swans last year. Good cross-section of their stuff from the early grind through the acoustic years to the stuff they're doing now. Highlight was the intro: fifteen minutes of a guy hitting a bit of metal while a single line of feedback/distortion gradually builds and builds. Magic.

 a taster of Clark's forthcoming new album of the same name due out in April on Warp.

Clark is Stevie fave artist producing electronica at the moment. It looks like he's ditched the Tensor stylings of the last two albums for something a bit more prog if this cut is anything to go by.

This is just to remind people what a record player looks like, in case you've forgotten.
Steve Jobs, who bought us iPods to listen to, always listened to his music on vinyl.

Odd thing this. Whenever Stevie interviewed vinyl purists for Auxtralian radio he'd always ask, "So when recording your own music do you do you utilise analogue techniques --splicing up tape loops & the like-- or do you do it all digitally?"

Anyone want to hazard a guess as to what the unaminous reply was?

It's more open ended than that. It's just what I happen to be listening to at the time. I mainly play vinyl records because I prefer them but I also play cd's and download stuff as well. I like all sorts of music and not just one type or style and like to hear what others' are listening to as it may get me into something different. Suprised you haven't anything by DK's bigjobs, they made some brilliant albums and are always worth are listen to. My favourite of their's is "Bedtime For Democracy", I have the vinyl gatefold edition of that which comes with a spoof newspaper by Winston Smith.

Yeah I'm the same. If I like it I'll listen to it from Jazz to Regga to classical. Pretty much open anything really (but have to admitt can't bare that awful Doom Metal and the like. I'm just to old for that shit. Lol) I've got a small and eclectic vinyl collection myself and bought an Ion record deck cause I wanted to transfer the it all onto my I Pod, but still haven't got round to doin that yet. I'm ashamed to admit I don't have any DKs but will go off your recommendation. As for Judas Priest! Again not got any but I'll give em a go.

Thanks exilewood, we don't do things by half measures in the house of fonkity fonk!

There is something about Neil Young's singing, something in his voice I can't pin point that makes me feel...weird. It's the sign of good song writing if the stuff still sounds as fresh to day as it did 32 years ago.

I'm now listening to "Fast Man, Raider Man" by Frank Black. This is a brilliant dbl c.d. album with some well written songs on it and some wonderful musicians. John Barleycorn is my favourite song, and there is a cover version of "Dirty Old Town" on here too which just has to be the best cover version of it I've heard. Mrs Fonky would disagree on that one though!

Well that is one I don't have. Nice cover. I see his new live show REVOLVER looks interesting with him inviting the audience to spin a gigantic vaudevillian contraption on stage and select the next song.

Picked up the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Stadium Arcadium for £1.50 from Oxfam the other day. Glad I stuck to my guns and didn't pay retail price for it. They've made the logical progression after releasing a few identical-sounding albums and released a double album comprising 28 identical songs. I wouldn't mind so much if they were interesting songs.

http://www.rambles.net/russell_modart03.html (http://www.rambles.net/russell_modart03.html)

Any of you lot familiar with Prof Byar's film reviews on the film thread will recognise the principle of "shitification" at work here.
That last stinging phrase..."the most artistic thing about this Modern Art is the buffalo painting on the cover" ! sounds to have come from right out of Prof Byars scripture.

Fantastic Plastic Machine -- Belinda May (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DRO3jauY-S8) is the sole worthwhile remix on the album but boy howdy it's a Linda Lusardi-class stunner. The compressed version on Youtube really doesn't do it any justice.

I've been listening to a lot of doom metal lately. Bands like BLOOD CEREMONY, ELECTRIC WIZARD, THE DEVIL'S BLOOD, THE WOUNDED KINGS, GHOST etc. And it suddenly struck me that while most of these bands are very Sabbathian (to coin a phrase) I've never really bothered much with Oz & co to date.

So rectified that last night by buying both BLACK SABBATH (debut) and SABBATH BLOODY SABBATH. Beautiful covers on both, and a 2 for 10 deal at HMV, so couldn't resist.

And geez, what a treat!  :)

 :lol: Yeah, all the teenagers and housewives listen to Sabbath these days. Strange thing to say. Back in the day, they'd have been very much underground, creeping into the charts here and there and then just growing along with the rest of metal, which didn't really have a mainstream and an underground as such until the 80s (generally speaking). I'd descibe Ozzy as "mainstream" to a certain extent, but only from Bark at the Moon onwards, when it was (became) mainstream metal, as opposed to thrash, doom and stuff.

Maybe they became that in the later 70s (I know I'm not keen on the last 2 Ozzy Sabbath albums) but I was still just reading comics and stuff at that time  :D In fact, right when my sister was seeing them and  a young Van Halen in Aberdeen, I'd have been at home reading Starlord!

Anyway, not meaning to argue, just found it a strange way to describe Sabbath. Mainstream to me means pop, or commercial shit. Boy bands, girly warbling and the like. You know, like Linkin Park  :lol:

And yes, it is. Randy Rhoads is sadly missed, his solos on that are astounding.

I was thinking that myself today. Tried to work out how much was effects and how much was natural. He's one of those singers that doesn't really have a good voice - in the normal sense - but has a GREAT voice in the abnormal sense.

Mark Knoflezchnegger (or whatever his name is) would be another example, albeit most uncool to bring Dire Straits into the conversation...

Mostly a lot of BBC RADIO 4 EXTRA between 10pm and 1am, when they broadcast an awful lot of quality science fiction, horror and comedy. Comedy Highlights of the past while have included The News Quiz Extra, The Now Show, Lionel Nimrod's Inexplicable World, Revolting People, Just A Minute, Another Case Of Milton Jones and the utterly sublime and hilarious You'll Have Had Your Tea, with Hamish and Dougal (Barry Cryer and Graeme Garden), which just might be my favourite radio thing ever, tied with Old Harry's Game and Ed Reardon's week. Sci Fi and horror has been ably represented by Day of the Triffids, The House on the Borderland, and the marvellous Journey Into Space. Not to mention The Man In Black, and the astonishing The Price of Fear with Vincent Price.

Oh yes :D

Bloody hell, I want to live in London. Samsara Blues Experiment!

Not listened to much COC since their early hardcore days (that obviously looks a bit suss), most of the original lineup back together though apparently.

Still, got Orange Goblin in Glasgow on the Tuesday after so reckon that'll do me for, having been down the week before for the Wizard.

Enjoy!!!

Oh hell yeah, Meshuggah's new album streaming...
http://iamaleak.com/ (http://iamaleak.com/)

Eagerly awaiting the fancy (brown lol) vinyl in the post, out next week.

Bit of a jump up from the doom n stuff, but would strongly urge anyone even vaguely into metal to check this out. Sounding like their best yet I must say. Click on individual tracks around the middle.

Yay, Meshggah. Right now I'm liseniting to Blood Ceremony, an earlier thing. Thanks for that Hoo-Haa, love it.

Mastodon though, so good. Brann Daillor is a god of drumming. So much good music everywhere, it's hard to keep up. Not so keen on their newer stuff but they're Gods of metal, Leviathan is like Number of the Beast.

These guys are absolutely brilliant. Missed them last time the came around (Jan I think) as we had a very a very small baby. Really hope to chance them next time. Its one of those things if I want to hear some Morricone I'll listen to 'his' records, but live these fella's look hard to beat.

Both cracking albums. Dogman's a very grungy and - as Klute says - reminiscent of Alice in Chains.

I've all King'sX's stuff to date. I'm a huge fan. Saw them in Camden Underworld few years back when they were filming their live DVD. Their drummer, Jerry Gaskill, recently suffered a heart attack but he's on the mend. Great, great band that have sadly spent a long and prolific career being largely looked over by mainstream metal fans.

They're quite a difficult band to pigeonhole (and presumably market): they don't really sound like anyone else (apart from Galactic Cowboys, who are avowedly influenced by them), so it's not a case of "You'll like them if you like [insert random zeitgeist-y band here.] I must admit I overlooked them for a long time, until finally being turned on to them by the writing of my favourite rock journalist, Martin Popoff.

On a quite literally totally different note, I am currently listening to Sigh: 'In Somniphobia'. I love this band - absolutely batshit insane in the way that only a Japanese metal act could be, stereotypical though it is to ascribe their lunacy to their nationality. This particular album seems to hark back a bit to my previous favourite, Imaginary Sonicscape, in its ability to throw in multiple completely random and bizarre shifts of tone or style within the same song. True demented genius.

That's very true. Trouble were/ are another band with a similar sound, mixing such diverse influences as Black Sabbath and The Beatles into their sound, and doing so in a natural, free-flowing non-contrived kind of way.

And yeah, love Galactic Cowboys too. They throw a little Anthrax-style thrash in there too.

They're on my list for sure. Have you tried Japanese three-piece, Gallhammer? You'd probably enjoy them. They're big on the contemporary Doom scene although - for me - they've just as much in common with the likes of Sonic Youth. Well worth a spin.

Yeah, I love Trouble, one of my favourite acts. Their self-titled 1990 album is just glorious (the song 'The Wolf' would make my all-time top songs list, and I love the Rick Rubin production on the record), though there's a lot to be said for 'Psalm 9' and 'Manic Frustration'. I'm guessing you've heard Supershine, the project where Doug Pinnick teams up with Bruce Franklin and Jeff Olson from Trouble? To my ears, sounds more on the King's X side of things than it does Trouble, but that guitar is unmistakeable.

Aye, Gallhammer do seem pretty cool. Don't own any of their stuff yet, but I've heard a few of their tracks: definitely worthy of further exploration, cheers. Sticking with the Japanese acts - heard Church of Misery? Big, heavy, slightly-Electric-Wizard-y serial-killer-obsessed stoner doom. Their record 'Master of Brutality' is a classic.

Is that the new Ministry? New one just out, not heard it yet, last couple seemed to get a bit samey. Always loved them though, since the majestic Psalm 69 and of course the loose 2000ad connection of Flashback being on the soundtrack of Hardware (on top of a video of Gwar in the film).

PE too, incredible band live. Fear of a Black Planet was one of the albums that prevented my musical tastes being confined to metal (too much) and still one of the greatest ever.

I'll also take the oppurtunity to mention that Electric Wizard were fucking ARSOM last weekend! Visuals were superb and very entrancing, consisting of loads looped clips of naked cavorting women from various old horror films  :D The whole thing just seemed to build up gradually, finishing with the apocalyptic Funeralopolis. Fucking marvellous!

Currently listening to my current death metal favourites, Anata.

CD3 of Ginger Wildheart's 555% (http://www.pledgemusic.com/artists/gingerwildheart) triple album.
More eclectic rocksperimentation from the Wildhearts' mainman. Going by the previous two weeks'  releases, it'll take a few listens before I get a proper handle on this. Lots of odd stylistic detours and mashups here - possibly bit of a culture shock if you go in expecting anything remotely Wildhearts-esque.

At this exact moment in time.... The Birthday Party - She's Hit. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7RI-07nm8o I absolutely love this track and The Birthday Party in general. I feed the Bad Seeds a little boring in comparison to this raw, anguish. Although I confess the Bad Seeds are still better than most music out there, to me its like Nick Cave's 'rents told him to have a wash and get a real job or he had to move out the attic. I am loving Nick Cave's current band Grinderman who sound pretty much exactly like a cross between The Birthday Party and The Bad Seeds imho. 'No Pussy Blues' being a particular gem and defo worth a listen at least once. This is a Later...jools holland version, fantastic 'tasche  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuDP7c3Zd8I

Only now do I realise that Zenith was a Smiths fan - I knew he was into Suede, but I only found out recently he was singing the Queen Is Dead to himself at the start of Phase 2.  The hair should have given it away I suppose.

What am I listening too? I've been listening regularly to Electric Dreams. Not intentionally, it kept popping up in an Electricity advert with this little nobbly yellow thing* bobbing side to side to the music while simultaneously pleasuring itself on various electrical appliances, although that's probably my dirty mind.

What is slightly worrying is I find the song quite catchy.

Can you recommend anything in particular by them that demonstrates the kind of diversity fans go on about?

How was the gig BTW?

I'd say either the new one (Koloss) or obZen (last album) might be a good place to start. The whole album's either pretty similar to Demiurge, or faster, or a bit catchier I'd say. Whole albums can be kind of difficult to get through, it's not very good as background music. Destroy Erase Improve is probably their easiest on the ear (2nd album) and isn't far off say, Master of Puppets, which it sounds a bit like at times. For a challenge, try Catch 33, which is kind of a single song all the way through.

As for the gig, it was just... *shakes head and closes eyes trying to think of a word* ...stunning. Pretty small place, so was perfect for a really intense atmosphere. Pretty lengthy gig too (17 songs on the setlist inc. encore).

http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/meshuggah/2012/the-garage-glasgow-scotland-43de7737.html

A whirl through youtube with that list should do fine though. Quite a few will have videos, especially Rational Gaze (from Nothing), Bleed (from obZen) and Break Those Bones Whose Sinews Gave it Motion (from Koloss, new one). So in fact, those 3 tunes are a good place to start.

As well as Meshuggah being arsom, Animals as Leaders were also amazing. 2 incredible guitarists on 8-strings and a crazy drummer (sadly not the original as he just left, so to come into the band as he has is incredible). Fairly Meshuggah inspired stuff as well as being very jazzy/proggy in a Frank Zappa way, if that makes sense. I think I posted a link a couple of pages back. they're doing a headline gig in Glasgow in October, so will be going to that for sure. Here we go...

Still to check out those lists properly, though certainly a few familiar names in there. This thread makes me spend money!  :lol:

Meanwhile, listening to Death Grips, new hip hop band that's strangely (or not) kicking off the ATP thing next month (Slayer, Sleep, Melvins, Yob, WITTR). Strange for such a doom-laden lineup but it's certainly dark enough and if they kick it up a notch live like say PE, it should be arsom...

Carly Rae Jepsen.

Every time I turn on a music channel, everytime I listen to the radio in the car (try flipping stations, I guarantee it'll be on everything but Radio Four), and over the PA at work.

Every hour of my life, through every possible avenue, the world is (vainly) trying to convince me that Carly Rae-fucking-Jepsen and her breezy chipmunk positivity are good.

Luckily I don't know who that is, sounds horrible  :)

Nothing on the radio ever reaches my ear drums, never listen to it at home unless it's the football, never listen to anything other than CDs in the car and mp3s at work. If I do listen to it in the car, it's Classic FM  between CDs, which always really confuses people :D

I always scream in panic when I get my car back from a service cos some ned's changed it to radio feckin 1.

Nope, just not part of my culture at all, I even prefer my horrible screeching alarm instead of anything like that for waking up. Classic FM would be fine to wake up to if it wasn't for adverts and annoying posh people. I really don't understand people that have it on at all.

Oh, one time my ears are invaded is if I succumb to laziness and go to the local Co-op. Then I get Co-op radio, which seriously makes me want to kill someone, especially some cloned Essex bint with that same fucking horrible voice they've all got! Grrrr, hate hate hate radio, allowing yourself to listen to it is like sitting watching Saturday night TV game/talent/reality shows for fuck sake :lol:

Right, I'm off home, CD currently in the car is Animal by Animosity so that's what I'll be listening to  :D

Absolutely awesome. Well worth checking out next year, if you're in the vicinity. We'd like to do the whole weekend next time, if possible.

Couple of tips for you...

UNDERSMILE - cutsey girlies with harmonising voices of stoner doom! Caught their acoustic set at DF and it blew us away.   

ANCIENT VVISDOM - acoustic-driven folk/ doom of the devil! Caught them last night in Bristol and it was a storming gig. Really great stuff.

Cool, will definitely keep it in mind for next year. Definitely want to get to Roadburn next year too though, only a week apart this year.

Will check those out, seen Ancient VVisdom mentioned quite a lot.

Did you catch The Samsara Blues Experiment or was that on a day you missed?

Rediscovering one of my all-time-favourites Iggy Pop, after finally washing the taste of fucking car insurance out of my mouth (At least Rotten's butter is made and sold by cunts). 
Which is great, because i somehow got addicted to the Smiths for a while, despite their introspective moaning going against everything I believe in.
That said, I saw Morrissey in the audience of the last Iggy Pop gig I went to, and Ian Curtis was listening to him just before he died, so maybe the idea of a Lust for Life is wasted on musical Mancs.

That Lionel Richie album is fantastic, knocking Wrecking Ball off of our current playlist! The duets with Shania Twain and Jennifer Nettles are real standouts.

Wasn't fussed about The Black Keys until Lonely Boy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a_426RiwST8).

You know that seen in Back to the Future where Michael J Fox paradoxically (i) invents Rock 'n' Roll (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1i5coU-0_Q)?
Lonely Boy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ga8eRdFK710) sounds like what would happen if Mark Bolan (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ylww2dOW7fg) had travelled back in time to a High School in rural Mississippi: "Hello, Howlin'? This is your cousin Marvin'; Marvin' Wolf. You know that new sound you' lookin' for? Well, listen to this ..."

Having said that, if you can listen to white boy electric blues with a straight face after watching Ghostworld (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfu8Dx0N6uY), you're a better man than me.


(i) The film was made in the same decade in which Casey Kasem tried to convince me that Michael Boulton was the US's top Soul and R&B artist, so I suppose Robert Zemeckis's wasn't the most egregious perversion of language, common sense and cultural sensitivity.

Stevie Nicks looking absolutely ravenous

That explains why her arse grew to the size of a VW bug in the following years (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwnS_cGfaj4).

Whatever you think of the music, the West Coast Rock dream was rotten to the core, and the personal trajectory of those involved makes for a better critique of the aesthetic than I could offer. The free spirited hippy naif who looks so sweet twirling her baton in that video is also a self obsessed, careerist coke head, who'll hoover up anything- food, drugs, men, phony spiritualism- that makes her feel she's achieving her dream of self fulfillment.

There is something fascinating and (superficially) appealing about that era, so thanks for the link, Beaky; but it's impossible to watch those lithe bodies and smiling faces without reflecting on how the hippy dream of personal freedom turned into the ugly individualism and recriminations of the Eighties (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyE4CLM0QIA&feature=related).

Pop stars are rarely the great minds of any generation and the so called personal freedom of the hippy era and eighties individualism were more or less different expressions of the same ideas of self-obsession but with better P.R., different drugs and a fatter, needier wallet. Things are worse now, the only ideal is the the fame and the money, any extraneous philosophies are bypassed completely.

(T)he so called personal freedom of the hippy era and eighties individualism were more or less different expressions of the same ideas of self-obsession but with better P.R., different drugs and a fatter, needier wallet.

[EDIT]the hippy dream of personal freedom REVEALED ITS TRUE NATURE AND ULTIMATE EXPRESSION AS the ugly individualism and recriminations of the Eighties[EDIT]

Natch, Soap, but Beaky's right that some of the music, most of the artists (though not their hair), and the idea of life in sun kissed Laurel Canyon must have held great appeal in that decade, especially to anyone living their prime teenage years amid the drab misery of a grey Northern European country that was still struggling to shake off the poverty and devastation that followed WWII.

It's interesting that the response to that dilemma of our own islands was Glam Rock. There's something endearingly sad- but ultimately admirable- about the tawdry attempts of the likes of Mud (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4G_Aa47vfk&feature=relatedl) and Glitter (http://) to inject life and colour into a dying culture.

Ziggy Stardust (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qybRGMA1A_8) and Country Life (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGSMafeqrZQ&feature=fvst) are the albums you make when it's raining outside and everything around you is dead or dying, Eagles (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuqbmRgUWmk) and Rumours (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjLaj2GROjU) are the albums you make when you're the sons and daughters of the folks with more money, more food and more military/industrial/political muscle than any nation in history and it's hot and sunny every fucking day. Each has their charms and their flaws.

Bloody hell, all I did was answer this thread's question and I got a detailed socio-cultural dissertation on the excesses of the 1970's West Coast clique, that being said, Stevie Nicks can hoover me up anytime she likes, I don't care how large her derriere (pardon my french) got in recent years, the music in the '70's was ace, and that was my point, but I see your point, bikini kill dude, and you are right as it happens, but still... it's Stevie Nicks twirling a baton, c'mon man, do you have ice water in your veins, IT'S STEVIE NICKS (all of 30 years old at the time) TWIRLING A BATON!!!

Fleetwood Mac, namely 'Tusk'

So called, apparently, because 'tusk' was Mick Fleetwood's nickname for his cock.

I've been listening to DROKK a lot. It's brilliant and making me want to see the new film even more.

Also, after going to see Edan and Mr. Lif, headliners on the Trap Door Rapp Tour, I bought albums by Paten Lock and Willie Evans Jr. who were also on the bill.

They could both be described as 'geek rap' filled with numerous references to comics, sci-fi and video games.

Paten Locke's Super Ramen Rocketship seems to be more up my street after an initial listen. It's got big fat boom-bap beats, funky samples and fast flowing rhymes and is generaly quite upbeat.

Willie Evans Jr.'s Introducin' is a quiter, less immediate album which I predict will grow on me the more I listen to it. His flow is reminiscent of MF Doom without sounding like imitation and the beats and samples are more subtle but interesting nonetheless.

Both recommended for fans of hip hop who, like me, hate the bling-bling gangsta bullshit often associated with the genre.

Thanks for the recommendations. Willie Evans Jr's new to me, but hearing lyrics that take anything other than getting bitches, getting fucked up and getting ahead in The Game as their theme reminds me of the invention of De la Soul (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRkAFaCrPfk) and Fu Shnickens (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1q7bpMiiVlA)' sense of fun. Unsurprisingly, I found Introducin' (http://open.spotify.com/track/5ewFYaLgtnsTsAIEUlhw37) a great place to start.

Band of Josh Graham, the visual artist from Neurosis/Red Sparrowes. Interestingly, their last EP had Vinnie Signorelli on iton drums, formerly of Swans and now Unsane.

I don't know what your definition of looooooong is but they've never stopped. My collection is at least 100 albums big (maybe 40 core albums followed by live recordings and compilations) and they tour at least once every year. The worlds most awsomest band  :)

Mudcrab; after your previous recommendation of them, Death Grips (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W43aQxzjyeM) have made it onto my playlist of new stuff.

I'd only just discovered that Unsane (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PvkeuA9TZc&feature=fvwrel) were still going; they still sound great and they're on Alternative Tentacles now: catching up with their newer stuff will feel extra special now I know I'm helping to stick it to The Man and paying Jello Biafra's (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_SiOnt_Oxo&feature=related) legal expenses too.

Also, Grud yeah, Kerrang etc are useless for decent heavy music these days, it's all a bit emo/commercial and general fakery. Possibly aimed at a much younger audience too I guess. I tend to find all my music these days from blogs, youtube and general internet raking. And forums of course.

I don't know what your definition of looooooong is but they've never stopped. My collection is at least 100 albums big (maybe 40 core albums followed by live recordings and compilations) and they tour at least once every year. The worlds most awsomest band  :)

I used to listen to Hawkwind back in the mid to late 70s.  I remembered that they changed their name to the Hawklords or something. The last album of theirs that I bought had a cool cover by Hipgnosis and was called (I couldn't resist looking it up) Quark, Strangeness and Charm

Big Country.
The Crossing (1983), and Steeltown (1984) are often played favourites of mine, and Stuart Adamson was perhaps one of the best guitarists that these islands has produced. Sadly missed.

I will be checking that Willie Evans Jr isht today hopefully. Speaking of Drokk have you heard any of Geoff Barrows 'Quakers' project? Featuring Guilty Simpson, Jonwayne and Deed amongst 30 odd other collective members- good from what Ive heard so far.
Back on rinse for me is The Last Huzzah remix by Mr Muthaf**kin eXquire ft Das Racist, Despot, Danny Brown and EL-P, if you like your geeks thugged out.

I've only just become aware of the Quakers project from reading articles about DROKK, but I'm definitely going to be picking it up. It sounds right up my street.

I was disappointed to hear I'm NOT going to see Death Grips at the ATP gig in a couple of weeks,

Death Grips sound intriguing too. I'll be checking them out later.

Anyone into The Coup? It's like Funkadelic/Parliament morphed into an anti-establishment, political hip hop group.

Both excellent, and I'm off to see Tragedy at Liverpool O2 Academy at the end of the month.

I'd add Faith No More (when Chuck Mosley was fronting them (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d1g9PFtSCKw)) to any list from that era too, but do you remember the disastrous 1991 Anthrax/Public Enemy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBA-xi8WuCU) joint tour? Racial tension at the big city US shows, rows of bored white metal kids ignoring PE at all the rest- even though, by all accounts, PE blew their tour mates off the stage.   

Little Richard (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqxNSvFMkag) and Chuck Berry (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEq62iQo0eUhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEq62iQo0eU) invented Rock (and/or Roll) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4g-wx2Y_wg) and were so comprehensively ripped off that the latter took to touring with a handgun in his guitar case and demanded payment (http://i.cdn.turner.com/dr/teg/tsg/release/sites/default/files/imagecache/750x970/documents/chuckberry1.gif) before he'd take to the stage. The way promoters ripped off black pioneers was an important reason why US strains of R&B/blues diverged in the Sixties, with black artists retreating to the familiarity of labels run by sympathetic businessmen and playing to largely black audiences on an established tour circuit of venues receptive to their music.

None of which accounts for Jimi Hendrix (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pz_kHIBVdUc).

I remember all that about that Anthrax/ PE tour, I have the 12" 'Bring The Noize' version PE and Anthrax brought out together on the back of it which also included 'I Am The Law' again. 'Im The Man' by Anthrax is a guilty pleasure (originally due to be a collabo with the Beastie Boys that).

Thanks for The Coup (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQthFDpYCys) too, Lee. Being paid to drive around listening to the radio on a nice day makes every song that comes on the radio sound like THE BEST SONG EVER (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpD8FpGpBjE=) (!), so apologies if the following don't sound as immense as they did this afternoon:

Nas (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjS0x2hM9vw) seems to be taking the split with Kelis (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHYFgP4Btrc) badly; driving around New York in a white Rolls with models of various ethnicities and insisting he still looks like a teenager. Cry for help.

Not that anything can ruin the perkiness a few days of sunshine provokes in me- I even enjoyed hearing Coldplay and Rihanna (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSTaQ0cOZxg)'s new song on the radio. Sounds like Save A Prayer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Uxc9eFcZyM) to me, but then I've been worrying myself by liking a lot of pedestrian shit lately.

There a series of classical music out on iTunes at the mo, called 'Seven Deadly Sins'.  There are 7 'albums' each with 50 tracks on, and each having a sinful theme.  They are fairly well known pieces.  I downloaded the 'Envy' and 'Wrath' ones, and although the versions aren't quite the best you can get, you get a lot of cool music for your money.  The 'Wrath' one is great for the gym!

Also I'm well into Orange Goblin at the mo.  Wish I'd come across these guys before.

I hope Sleep are on it! Had a ball last week seeing them twice. They were the best thing at the ATP gig, closely followed by pretty much everything else, Melvins fantastic as usual with a few surprise tracks played (cover of The Wipers' Youth of America, one of my favourites). Yob were superb but way too short a set (seeing as 45 minutes for them is only 3 songs!), hopefully catch them again sometime. Slayer were pretty good too, though was a bit worse for wear by then. Great fun, best gig ever.

That didn't come close to the 2 hour set in Glasgow though, much smaller, cosier place with more of a "stand and appreciate it" crowd, as opposed to the fairly bouncy crowd at Alexandra Palace. A Storm of Light were excellent too, really nice visuals (unsurprisingly, seeing as Josh Graham does all the visuals for Neurosis), which were black and white in Glasgow, in colour in London, which was kind of spooky, but nice that it was different.

Now getting prepared for Kyuss Lives, Soundgarden and Sabbath a week on Sunday!!!! Woohoo! 20 years since I've been to Donington  :o

Music's great, the singing's contemptible. That video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUbozabt9HA&feature=relmfu=)'s use of vintage cheesecake is interesting, though; even if the point it's making isn't particularly subtle or original. Thanks for the recommendation, Kowalsky.

Mudcrab; I'm still in two minds about Kyuss Lives, please feel free to let us know what you think after the show. "I don't really care about the money, I never have ... so to punctuate the end of our sentence with that would be blasphemy ... reunions are just not necessary ... I'm too proud of it to rub my dick on it" –Josh Homme. Then again, I remember thinking Slayer should have split before they all got fat and bald; now I hope they keep touring until Kerry King has to have a colostomy bag  incorporated into his stage wear. 
Title: Re: What's everyone listening to...?
Post by: Mudcrab on 01 June, 2012, 05:50:16 pm
I saw Kyuss Lives last year in Glasgow, they were great! I can understand Homme's point of view but it does seem a bit like snobbery. Like he's going to make more money from a Kyuss tour than playing pop music with QotSA? Nope, that one doesn't wash. Still, don't think Nick Olivieri will be with them this time, think he's been locked up, at least he was on a charge involving guns, drugs and holding his girfriend hostage. Not that I'd know the differene, but I didn't feel they were missing anything with Homme/Reeder not being with them.

Heh, Slayer have still got it, although they did redo one song that they fucked up  :lol: No Jeff Hanneman, replaced by Gary Holt from Exodus, so that was awesome! Will see 2 others (Anthrax, Megadeth) of "the big 4" next week too, 3 if we can grab cheap tickets for the Saturday. Metallica doing the Black album, which I find hard to get excited about.

Most big 1980's metal acts - Maiden, Metallica, Motley Crue (can't speak for the thrash bands, was never into thrash myself, with few exceptions, like the fantastic Annihilator debut album, Alice In Hell, from 1989, one of the greatest speed/thrash albums ever made, I'm not kidding!) - have become little more than cabaret acts of late, touring old sets and playing old albums in their entirety as little more than a nostalgic exercise, which is fine it that's yer thing, but I miss the days when they were actually working bands touring new albums that stretched their boundaries and progressed on what had gone before... or maybe I'm just getting old ::)...

If you want something to get excited about, check out the mighty Monster Magnet at their very best - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dscfeQOMuGw - their three major-label albums (1994's Dopes To Infinity, 1998's Powertrip, and 2000's God Says No) were the height of awesomeness, why that band were never massive, I'll never know... especially after Space Lord, one of the most rousing rock n' roll numbers of the last two decades, just my opinion though...

The energy of metal just dissipated and moved on, didn't it? You can find plenty examples of extreme music, that reflects the spirit of what metal was doing, elsewhere (Skrillex (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOofWzI3flA), Gravediggaz (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gE-5Q_xyiwo), Brides Make Acid (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVYoXuA5NiE)), but most metal acts seem content to keep working the same aesthetic and formula for the same fans till Ragnarök comes and topples their stacks of Marshal amps and, yay, frays their denim but utterly.

Modern acts who want to stick it to the man, talk about death and violence, or just make a glorious fucking racket don't necessarily want to wear the same trousers and hair as Zeppelin or play wanky guitar solos.

Or, just while I'm on the subject of great metal acts, the mighty Danzig - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WV6o7-KX_M - one hell of a band on any day of the week, kinda lost it after 1994's Danzig 4 opus (undoubtedly their best and most accomplshed work), but were one awesome band whilst they still had their classic line-up, ah, the memories...



I have to ask -the devil having the best tunes an' all- surely you lose brownie points with the big man upstairs by listening to someone like Danzig "who feels a connection to Satan".



Or is it strictly Stryper (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KubgMDSMXfI) for you these days?

Got Tom Waits' Blue Valentine for a fiver today; dead pleased!

Now there's something about that record on vinyl that is just so right. Best of his Asylum albums.

Hell yes! Swordfishtrombones is next on my list I think, for a bit of a style change...

I think He's cool with me listening to Danzig et al - Glenn Danzig's opinions are his own not mine - and I NEVER listened to Stryper, but was always a huge W.A.S.P. fan meself, just listen to either their 1984 eponymous debut album or 1989's magnum opus The Headless Children, my grud, the majesty of it all...

Most big 1980's metal acts - Maiden, Metallica, Motley Crue (can't speak for the thrash bands, was never into thrash myself, with few exceptions, like the fantastic Annihilator debut album, Alice In Hell, from 1989, one of the greatest speed/thrash albums ever made, I'm not kidding!) - have become little more than cabaret acts of late, touring old sets and playing old albums in their entirety as little more than a nostalgic exercise, which is fine it that's yer thing, but I miss the days when they were actually working bands touring new albums that stretched their boundaries and progressed on what had gone before... or maybe I'm just getting old ::)...


I hate to disagree with you there, but I saw Maiden last year, and about 70% of stuff came from their new album.  It was pretty bloody good too!  Also, looking around the audience, there were three generations of metal fans all going berserk, from about 13 up to 50.  I certainly did not get the impression Maiden were on any kind of nostalgia trip.

As for Monster Magnet, I thought Powertrip was a bit dull to be honest. That's just my opinion though!
Title: Re: What's everyone listening to...?
Post by: Mudcrab on 04 June, 2012, 04:12:38 pm
Very true, Maiden never stopped. Neither have any of the Big 4 really. Stopped making good albums maybe but that's a whole other debate. Crue though, you have a point there possibly, I've no idea what they've done since the 80s.

The "playing old abum in its entirety" is a fantastic thing. It was pretty much started by ATP (I think) and has become more popular elsewhere, hence Metallica doing the black album at Donington. First time I saw Melvins was them doing Houdini, which was fantastic to see and they're a band that's never stopped too. It's maybe nostalgia for some (or for the band), but only if you were there the first time round, which is the case with me seeing Slayer doing Reign in Blood (only accounted for half the set), but then that wasn't the main draw of the event for me, that would be to see Yob, Melvins again and Sleep (all old stuff they played which many many people were very happy to see).

Anyway, will update on how good an idea Black Sabbath reforming (without Bill Ward though) is next week! Likewise Soundgarden. At least Chris Cornell can still sing. Oh and if we get tickets for the Saturday I'll see Saxon too  :lol: \m/

I like God Says No  ;)

Do you mean the new album is "bloody good" or the gig you attended?  Maiden have always been a top-notch live act, and that hasn't changed, but their post-Seventh Son... output has been patchy to say the least, I never thought Janick Gers' playing style ever suited Maiden, and Bruce Dickinson's solo material post-Maiden was better than anything that band recorded at the same time - The Chemical Wedding was the best album Maiden never made - to tell the truth, I just can't listen to ANY Maiden album from Brave New World (a crushing disappointment) onwards, I dislike Kevin Shirley's production and, to be frank, they've been making the same album since 1990 anyway, just my opinion...
Title: Re: What's everyone listening to...?
Post by: shaolin_monkey on 05 June, 2012, 10:42:17 am
Yeah, I agree with you re 'Seventh Son' being their last great album.  Every album after that has one or two great tracks (I have a huge soft spot for Holy Smoke) but otherwise fell short.

Re the gig, it was a fantastic gig, even though I'm not enamoured by their latest studio offering.  That said, whether you agree it is good or not, you can't say Maiden are relying solely on nostalgia, which was my original point.  Like it or not, they keep doing new albums, and keep playing their new stuff live. 

While I am firmly in the 'Live After Death' camp, plenty of fans at the gig, young and old, seemed to very much enjoy their new offerings.

Pixies are owed such a huge psychic debt by everyone who plays or enjoys music that I can't blame them for accepting payment in cash terms. Like The Velvet Underground before them, they're only realising the profits from all the albums they should have sold first time round.

Having said that, I've no intention of ever seeing them live and endangering my conviction that Kim Deal is the coolest woman ever to live. Serves ye right for having Sky!

Oh, I don't have a problem with them chasing some filthy lucre. In fact, the first time I saw them following the reformation they were far better live than they ever were the first time round. No, it's the acoustic part of this which was the problem. Some band's can carry off the MTV Unplugged thing, others can't. This was the latter.

In my defence, I don't have real Sky, just Virgin Cable which includes the rather good Sky Arts channels.

I was never a big Motley Crue fan, but the eponymous album they made with John Corabi (the only Crue album I own) back in 1994 was nothing short of stellar, heavy as hell, and remarkably mature, it was one of the best rock/metal albums of the last few decades, it was THAT good, a real shame neither the record company nor the audience at large gave them any real support on it, effectively forcing them to fire Corabi and bring back Vince Neil... after that, it is was all over for me regarding the Crue...

Out of interest and being as you are one of these young people they have nowadays, do you buy music digitally or in physical form?

This album is the first thing I've bought for ages where the sleeve looks like it was intended to be seen in 12" format rather than being a shitty picture of the band or a tree or something blown up from CD size. Irritatingly, it's also the first record I've bought for a while which didn't come with a download code.

On a related note, my copy of Ginger Wildheart's 555% triple CD extravaganza turned up last weekend and it really is a thing of true beauty. They really went to town on the production of this thing! For any who missed the limited edition triple album, the single disc retail edition - 100% - landed in shops on Monday and entered the midweek album charts at number 9.

Some even less Green Day punk, from Aberdeen. I believe one of them's from Ireland, hence the tag. I now have the decision of going to a bbq or seeing them tomorrow at the local, with a couple of 'merkin bands. Thanks for reminding me, sort of  :)

Patriot Act has the same sample as the Magrudergrind song I asked about a few pages back  :D

Hip-hop artists and rappers are parodying themselves so you don't have to.

As soon as you get more than two or three years older than the people making music, you realise they're basically idiots, and the only way to enjoy them is in the same way you enjoy your dug chasing its tail and growling at the refection in the mirror.

It usually takes fans of hip-hop and metal a little longer to reach this conclusion- sometimes a lifetime. Still love the music, though.

Every Soulfly and Sepultura album mixed into one mighty playlist of tribal metal goodness.

I'd enjoy Sepultura more without the vocals; a problem with most metal, and one that RATM and Limp Bizkit partially addressed by employing some annoying twat to occassionally repeat a sweary chant then shut the fuck up and let the riffs take over for the rest of the song. Fred Durst looked and sounded every bit as ridiculous as GWAR! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=piyZBoHaHDI), though

Chemical Brothers have made an official song for the Olympics that's equal parts Thriller and Tangerine Dream, except it's good. This and Survival (by Muse) are part of six songs commissioned for the Olympics, which are intended to demonstrate to the world what groovy fuckers we all are. I can imagine both working quite well as beds for the build up to events and highlights packages, so you'll be sick of the sound of them soon enough:

Make that more than two weeks of Al Jourgensen spilling over into a bunch of other Wax Trax! era artists like Attrition, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult and Front Line Assembly.

Nothing like The Power Of Lard, my man.

Saw the Ministry documentary FIX (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDT9836cdCQ) yesterday. Watching an increasingly paranoid Al Jourgensen don a bullet proof vest for fear of being shot on-stage was a great advertisement not to shoot heroin.

While attending the Auto Assembly convention in Brum, I nipped into HMV and picked up the new Rush album, 'Clockwork Angels'.

Holy freakin' COW, it's AMAZING!

The band basically draw on every element of their almost-40-years in music, and turn in an addictive, powerful and - I cannot make this any clearer - ROCKING album! It's been listened to so much since I got it, I fear I may actually melt it in my CD player!

What impresses me is that several of the songs either channel specific elements of their band sound from certain periods or outright regurgitate musical ideas. There are passages in some of the songs that are reminiscent of songs like 'Witch Hunt', 'Bastille Day', 'Double Agent', and even a few things from Alex and Geddy's solo efforts. BUT - it's all done in the context of creating new music with its own energy, and it works.

I will be so sad if this is indeed their last full length album.

JJ DOOM - Key to the Kuffs. Leftfield producer and underground hero Jneiro Janel provides the beats for the legendary DOOM's rhymes on this new album. Weird, unsettling and utterly fantastic.

WILLIE ISZ - Georgavania. Jneiro Janel again, this time collaborating with Khujo Goodie of Goodie Mob fame.

Jneiro Janel and his many alter-egos (Dr. Who Dat, Shape of Broad Minds etc.) is one of the most innovative and original producers/rappers in hip hop today. He's pushing this music in new and brilliant directions.

Also listening to Plaid - Scintilli, the latest album from the electronic music pioneers.

Besides, it shouldn't be a bad thing at all. Paul Simon did all his awesome African stuff, was (is?) married to Edie Brickell and Art Garfunkel was in Catch 22. Doesn't get much cooler than that. Maybe if Art had an incredible song that'd make a stone cry in some weird scary epic animated film about rabbits. But no, that'd be ridiculous  :lol:

Mind you, she was like that about a lot of things, the old battleaxe. When going through my CD collection while moving out I kept thinking 'why didn't I listen to this more? Oh yeah, 'cos her indoors wouldn't let me.'

I'll go one further and say that I have a fondness for Paul Simon's solo stuff, especially Graceland. Again, it's inherited from my parents who used to play it in the house all the time when I was a kid. If you don't like Me and Julio Down by the School Yard then there's no hope for you.

I CANT STAND music snobbery, though I know we're all guilty of it from time to time. I have some friends who turn their nose up at anything that isn't obscure ambient electronica and it does my fucking head in (though Metal fans seem to be the absolute worst snobs in my experience). I don't even like talking to them about music, and agonise about what to put on when they're round, lest I be judged.

Charles Chilton's Journey Into Space, on radio 4 extra at midnight. Back in the fifties this got the kind of ratings that dr who struggles to acheive nowadays- and is arguably the second most popular british science fiction thing ever.
I have no idea what it is about it- maybe the incidental music, maybe the ideas, maybe the warmth of the performances, but whatever it is i'd much rather listen to this than experience just about any other scifi these days. It may sound a little stilted and stiff-upper lippy at first, but three episodes in you'll be hooked. Dan Dare can bugger off, Jet Morgan is da man. Though Lemmy rocks harder.

You have the right of it there, Radiator. Living in a town full of clueless, tone-deaf metal-heads is a part of what killed my brief musical meanderings.

Not that I'm saying folks who like metal are musically ignorant. Coz that'd be stupid. There's some fantastic, even BEAUTIFUL and very musical heavy metal out there. But these guys - ugh...

If we're all in a competition to admit to liking the least-fashionable music possible, I think I can trump Mr Monkey. If Simon and Garfunkel aren't cool, how embarrassing is it to admit that one of your favourite songs ever is a cover of one of their songs by The Bangles (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zG9PVucS9awhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zG9PVucS9aw) ?

This deserves its own thread. The first song on mine is ABC- Jackson Five. Set in the context of that first screen, which goes: Abdulmajid- David Bowie, Abolish Goverment/Superficial Love- Slayer, About A Girl- Nirvana, Absorber- Bomb The Bass- the Jackson Five is excusable.

I'm a massive music snob but you wouldn't have to look very hard to find some dreadful 90s cheesy chart rave in my record collection.

The concept of people who don't like Simon & Garfunkel is quite chilling. I shared a university flat with five other people and the only records we could all agree on was The Essential Simon & Garfunkel and Blondie's Greatest Hits (although really it was just Atomic over and over again.)

First on my mp3 player is Accelerate by Drugstore. If numbers come first it's either 28 Oldham Street by The Durutti Column or Feist's 1234, depending on how you file them.

The Best of - Simon and Garfunkel (and I too feel no shame of listening to this! Maybe I sometimes sing along a little too loud to "At the Zoo" but it's a fun but very well produced track!)
To The Cosh- were Drugstore the ones who did El President (if that's what it was called) with Thom York some years back? I remember having the single of that.

The very same. There was a long-running connection between the two which stemmed from Drugstore's regular cover of Black Star (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTMwQeEKeXw).

So we all seem to have greatest hits compilations of Simon and Garfunkel songs, does anyone have any of their actual studio albums and which are the best?

My own favourite is Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme. I am aware that this is tied into it being the one most played in our house when I was growing up so you may not be able to capture this same attachment. One of the things I like most about it is that the arrangements are quite spare in comparison to some of their others. If you do get it, be aware that it's supposed to finish after Silent Night so the addition of various extra tracks in newer editions is quite irritating.

Always good to hear from a fellow Napalm fan, they're few and far between where I live.

Quote from from my friends: "sum of their choons are ok, but do they really need to shout?"-yes they need to shout. I've tried miming/whispering to their songs and it doesn't have the same impact.

I also liked World Demise by Obituary in fact if i'm honest back then their was a decent group of death metal band's half of the music today classed as death metal is pure shite.

As for listening i've been chasing all sort of music up off bandcamp.com quite a lot of decent "unkown bands" amongst the crap.

Currently listening to some Big Finish Dr Who, so that doesn't count. But Father's day is on Sunday and boy am I looking forward to my present:

The Darkness Hot Cakes

Yeah yeah, come at me buddy. When I listen to it I'm sixteen again and everything is good. After THAT I can get all worthy and check out the new Bailter Space album and feel... er, twenty.

Scrolling down the iPod... I've nothing to declare until I get to L!

Letter From America

Some might think that uncool, I don't care. Early Proclaimers is pretty lippy and interesting. That's the only one of theirs I've got on at the moment but even some of Sunshine on Leith I'd go for as well.

Today I've been mostly listening to-the crappy pre-programmed Digi box that's been installed at my work (they won't renew public entertainment license). There's less than 100 songs on it, and they all sound like rip-offs of other tunes.

Will need a full night of Grind to get over this tosh!

Ah, must be still firmly in your head from last night then  :D I'm avoiding the review thread, going to be a struggle waiting the next week out!

My next trip to the big smoke is in October, when I'll be seeing 2 of my all-time favourite bands, bizarrely both Canadian, Voivod and Nomeansno. Definitely the finest thing to come out of Canada musically, after Rush of course.

So my mate can catch up with some Nomeansno I'm currently ripping their stuff I've only got on vinyl, so of course listening to it at the same time (stupid real-time ripping  ::))

So yeah, currently on Small Parts Isolated and Destroyed. It's punk (but not the political) more than anything (also see Hanson Brothers for more straight-forward Ramones style Ice Hockey inspired punk  :D), but so much more, don't think I'd ever compare them to anyone else. I used to think they were very dark, which they are really lol, but seeing them live was a revelation back in 94 I think it was the first time. Dark stuff, but they have a sense of humour about them too that completely changed my view of them. An example, Dark Ages...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmBDkYGVqGQ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmBDkYGVqGQ)

And my favourite off this (listening to now), Real Love...

The one and only time I saw Nomeansno was around the same time, Mudcrab. It was at Glasgow Garage, and the first thing Rob Wright said as they took the stage was "Yes ... we are that old", which was definitely what I was thinking. They then played a non-stop, heads down set that was so hardcore there were people being passed out of the mosh pit from exhaustion after about 40 minutes, and the band took pity on the crowd of wilting teenage weegies by playing a couple of slow(er) songs.

And, aye; they're nothing like any other band. Punk, Jazz Rock, Math Rock; nothing quite covers it, but I'd agree that it's their sense of humour that really sets them apart more than the odd time signatures and stop/start dynamics. The songs sound even more incredible live than on record, and the between song banter is priceless. I think these two represent the opposite poles of what Mr Right and Mr Wrong do so fucking brilliantly:

This track is by Red Kite, the band Dan Fisher formed after The Cooper Temple Clause split; you can stream their recordings in a few places but stuff like that is beyond my computer-skill capabilities so I tend to just browse YouTube. Love this song and love the video; reminds me of using the editing suite when I was at college and struggling to fit music to a shot in time.

Wheyyy!!!

I was just about to post on this thread about seeing Om in Bristol on Saturday! Bloody splendid they were Mr Mudcrab. Hynoptic and thoroughly convincing - met a few people who'd never seen them before and were immediate converts. Which says a lot.

It was a new venue though, and they'd as yet not fitted any air conditioning so the room they played in quickly became a sauna. Had to jettison my rather tasty position at the front about half an hour in so I could get some air. Al was, by the end, a bit of a sweaty wreck but they didn't let up! He was found prone apon some stairs after the gig - recovering. He said promisingly at one point "it's been too long since we've last been in the UK - we won't be leave it so long next time" (!!) Whey.

They do a fine, if very similar, version of Burning Inside! Hmm, should be on the cover thread  ;)

The other week I was listening (live) to Nomeansno (still bloody fantastic, Rob must be in his 70s now!) and Voivod. Absolutely loved that, been a favourite for years and I've never seen them.

In contrast to the usual, I'm going to see 10cc on Saturday, then back to the other end of the spectrum in 2 weeks, another trip to London to see Pig Destroyer  :D

Me too. I went to see them in Leeds a couple of weeks ago and they were fantastic. It made me dig out all my old albums and I've been listening to them non-stop. You can't beat the fantastic trilogy of Madness and Death - Happy Bridge - Kill Everyone Now on Why Do They Call Me Mister Happy? Absolutely epic.

I've also been listening to a couple of albums by the hip hop crew, Dead Residents, featuring rapping by our beloved forumite, Judge Fett. I met him at the Dredd screening in London and he'd kindly brought them along as he knew I was a bit of a hip hop head.

Being perfectly honest, I didn't expect them to be this good. Phat (yes, phat) beats, excellent turntablism and plenty of funny and well used vocal samples. The rhymes are all excellent and the rapping is superb with many different styles on display.

Each track has it's own unique hook and stands apart with it's own voice. There's a real different flavour for each track ensuring you never get bored.

There is some excellent use of breaks and samples. One track which samples the '1, 2, 3, 4, 5' pinball song from Sesame Street had me nodding my head and smiling at strangers in the street.

Recommended to anyone who likes raw, pure hip hop.

They have a way with words do they not? I had a Mr Happy t-shirt that I wore till it was more holes than shirt. I still miss it! And as an aside,when Mrs Mikey and me used to toot on a doobie now and again she could never say ' Madness and Death'. Another true story!

I've been listening to This Will Destroy You, whom I first heard an age ago on FB from some dude whose name sounds like bread I think, so I finally picked it up just last week. It's guitar music with a touch of the epic and not a million miles away from Sigur Ros's brand of slow build drone but without lyrics (nonsense or otherwise) or vocals. Lush! Also been giving Queen Adreena's Taxidermy a spin - yes Ush, it took me a while but see my above comment! - and it's brilliant too.

That tempts me to just get it. Amazon tried to sell me it yesterday cos other people that pre-ordered the new Neurosis had too, but I'd already caved in in their attempts to sell me the new Converge. I got an older one of theirs recently which I liked a lot, like a mellower version of other things I like, such as the aforementioned Neurosis.

Also, there seems to be quite a sizable group of Nomeansno fans on here, that's at least 5! The Baifra one is awesome :D

The Who theme (the early versions at least) is still one of the oddest and most fascinating things I've ever heard. That video only credits Ron Grainer for his composition of that theme but it was my Sixties hipster crush, Delia Derbyshire (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAxW9pjdYCchttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAxW9pjdYCc), who physically arranged and gave that theme its spooky atmosphere and unique appeal.

On a completely different note, it was Rock Day on the nation's favourite Radio One yesterday, and the horrible Fearne Cotton had Bullet for My Valentine in the live lounge, covering Whole Lotta Rosie (http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/sessions/2012-10-22_bulletformyvalentine#p01033lv). They've never been on my list of favourite bands, but this rocks like a motherfucker. The solo's at 2m 25s, but unlike the rest of the cover, it's not anywhere near as good as Angus Young's original (https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=Q8fZeaUHsjw#t=138s).

Today I'm mainly listening to the Four Seasons. This is so well known, thanks a lot to Nigel Kennedy I guess for us. This music is just very, very sensuous...to employ a really worn out cliche in trying to describe this masterpiece. But it's the first thing that comes to mind on hearing it, and one never tires of playing it on the stereo. The more familiar you become with this music, you wonder how someone could create music like this circa 300 years ago.

Me! I'm currently gorging on old school shoegaze again, after falling for a lot of the recent American 'Nu-gaze'* bands. Folk like A Place To Bury Strangers, Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Ringo Deathstarr** are all superb and inspired me to dig out a lot of the originals (Ride, Moose, Slowdive, Drop Nineteens etc).

I never really stopped listening to My Bloody Valentine though.

Have you just got used to Snoop Dogg dropping the 'doggy' from his name? Bad news, he's Snoop Lion now, and he seems to have taken his weed obsession to its logical conclusion by making a reggae album and dressing up as the ghost of Bob Marley. If you think it sounds better than any record he's made for the last decade, that's probably because it's produced by Major Lazer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OI3shBXlqsw):

HOW DOES  BOB MARLEY  LIKE HIS DONUTS? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EJ5KlZNh1WA)

That video looks like The Flaming Lips directing an episode of Yo Gabba Gabba. Actually, the person Snoop looks most like in this video is Osama Bin Laden; I suppose he thinks it's safe to grow a full beard now his looky-likey's no longer America's Most Wanted.

Went to see Zappa plays Zappa last night in St David's Hall.  Epic concert!  Gig of the decade!!!

Dweezil was incredible, but the standout musician was Scheila Gonzalez.  She was surrounded by several instruments - two keyboards, two saxophones, flute, kazoo, and goodness knows what else.  In some pieces she played all of them consecutively, rapidly, one after the other, and at one point she was playing the sax and keyboard at the same time.  Plus she had an amazing voice.

Brilliant, just brilliant.

The new Soundgarden album is surprisingly brilliant.

I say surprising not because their previous albums weren't great (they're one of my favourite bands of the '90s), but just because with it being a reunion album I'd sort of braced myself for it to be a shadow of their former glories. It's not, it sits very happily alongside Down On The Upside as one of their best records. Phew!

Actually had the soundtrack before I saw the film.  A bit nervous as Tron is one of my favourite childhood sci fi films.  When I did get round to seeing it I found myself paying more attention to the soundtrack than the film which may be why I enjoyed it more than a lot of the reviewers did.  On an aside the remastered version is also well worth a listen, particularly Moby's take on 'Son of Flynn'.

I've heard Om are really good from several people now - time to check them out!

I don't think there are that many uncritical descriptions of things happening in metal as a genre.  Here's a good example of some very critical lyrics:

Quote
While the bad men play with words
And make us all dance to their song
To the tune of starving millions
To make a better kind of gun

I'd say thiose lyrics were highly critical, and I don't think they stand alone in the metal genre as a whole.  I've always seen it as an empowering form of music for that very reason.

To explain myself better, I should have said one aesthetic of metal is those kind of lyrics, in that it's a feature you often but not always find in the genre. Angel of Death by Slayer could be a good example, or Cannibal Corpse's Rancid Amputation. A nice parody of which is here:

Much is being made of the fact that Bowie's turned sixty-six - and worringly it only seems like yesterday that the media was making a big thing of Bowie turning fifty. And the wistful melancholia of the song has added to the speculation of ill health.
From my earilest childhood memories to BBC4's recent Bowie nights, im always finding and re-finding something that grabs and inspires me, in his music.

Got an old Sunn O))) album last week. This track (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdeqvhxu7iI) exemplifies what makes it such a frustrating listen.

The first time I had a shot of an electric guitar, I discovered that you can make a lot more interesting noises by turning everything up and waving it around than you can by actually playing it. These guys obviously understand this too and the first seven minutes or so of this track are a beautiful ebb and throb of restrained electricity with some wonderful little squalls of noise off in the distance of the mix.

Then some idiot starts talking over it. In the manner of a fifteen year old gamesmaster doing his best portentous, evil wizard voice. I really can't see why they thought this was a good idea and would have to assume they are also the sort of people who think it's okay to answer their phones in the cinema.

I saw Sunn 0))) (go on then pronounce that!) at ATP one year... well I say saw.

I went up to the main room at the now old Minehead venue and (for those that know it) got as far as the little arcade area to right of the stage.

For those that don't know it ATP is a festival hosted at a Pontin's and the main stage at Minehead is a large room where you imagine they host cabaret etc in an evening. Great venue for a gigs, loads of tables and seats around a large room and a good sized clear area for those that still like to rock (me I used to fine a nice table unless I really love the band). It was a big old room. Around the edge there were not just bars, but other holiday camp type stuff, including in a separate room, just of the stairs you entered the room from an arcade. So its a little behind the stage, and pretty sheltered.

My wife and I, not knowing but intrigued Sunn 0))), tried to approach the seats at the back. My wife failed and hide in the arcade. I braved it. The noise was incredible. I saw the men wearing rubber trees on stage and once the druidesque droning started and I think my ears started to bleed, I couldn't stand it any more and went to find my wife. Even in the arcade I could feel the music through my legs. The noise was like no other.

Now in case you think I'm just a big girl's blouse, I found my wife was trying to talk to a couple of friends of ours one of whom was Jeff. Now Jeff likes My Bloody Valentine gigs and this was too loud for him. For anybody who knows My Bloody Valentine live you will get this. Jeff was reduced to a gibbering fool having watched the first couple of songs (well I call them that). We all ran for cover downstairs and probably ended up watching some other beard strokey, band while stuffing cotton wool in our ears to stop the BLOOD POURING OUT.

All of which is a very long winded way of saying. Sunn 0)))) loudest band I have ever seen - and only one with dancing rubber trees.

My Friend Martin said it was a very good gig by the way... idiot!

Oh my god - one of my favourite, and rarest, live blues albums has just turned up on ITUNES!!!! Do you know how hard it is to get this on CD and vinyl?!?

I first came across this album 23 years ago.  I bought it on vinyl at a record fair, on a whim.  It was one of my best 'random record buys' ever!!

I taped it, then lent the vinyl to a french guyI knew who buggered off back to France with it.  For years I had to make do with the tapes.  When the internet came along the first thing I did was search online to find a CD version of it.  Finally found one, which I had to import from America.  I ripped it, and it's been on my iPod ever since.  A month doesn't go by without me sticking it on at least once.

If you like blues, jazz or boogie woogie get this RIGHT NOW! You won't regret it - it's in my top five live albums of all time.

'Dry' is just a fantastic album. If you've just rediscovered 'Sheela Na Gig' wait til you discover (rediscover) 'Dress' and 'Victory' which she had in her live set a few years back. Man that is a great record.

I'm sure the version I'm listening to was from a 10" Peel session record. I'll see what other Polly i can find but I'm goin through tapes me and an ex used to make. She had impeccable taste. Got some AC Maria on one- 'One Of Our Girls Has Gone Missing'.

It's a well known fact that the music you loved when you were a teenager will dictate the music you'll love for the rest of your life. The pop industry knows this, and therefore loses all interest in you when you get to your early twenties.

Went to see Dan Deacon on Monday night, who was described by my mate before the gig as "the day-glo techno saviour of Baltimore." I can't remember the last time I had so much fun at a gig. Probably the last time The Go! Team toured. Can't remember ever seeing an electronic act with any stage patter either and he was cracking away like Julian Cope in his prime. A bunch of potentially cheesy audience participation / dance sections followed all swept along by the genuine enthusiasm of the young crowd (and me.) Marvellous stuff.

Anyway, me and a few mates generally compile a top ten of the previous year sometime in February or March! Here's my effort for 2012 (http://i.mixcloud.com/CCJKbg).

Speaking of Queen, Muse have a new single out. Supremacy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avM_UsVo0IA), from their 2nd Law album, sounds like they might have wrote it as a potential Bond theme when they heard Amy Winehouse was out of the running. Remember when every britpop band was sounded out to do the theme tune for Tomorrow Never Dies? The only one I can remember now is Pulp's Tomorrow Never Lies (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHpH-iziTho) (which was a bit shite, to be honest).

Supremacy nods towards Thunderball, but it's the same Live and Let Die pastiche which any rock band doing Bond always veers towards - see also Jack White (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRUMaKf6X4c) - but it's mostly just a bit mental, and certainly much less dull than Adele's tune. The surfing in the video provokes unwelcome memories of Die Another Day, but the tune really owes as much to Spaghetti Westerns and Zeppelin as it does to John Barry. I like all of those things.

I used to love Senser - they haven't changed. I'd written The Vaccines off as horrible sub-Libertines chancers, but Bad Mood (https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=yQz_JE72Lo0#t=27s) is more reminiscent of Magazine (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybUqM8jf3mU)/Buzzcocks than spotty Pete & Co. The lyrics and singing are atrocious, but that's a given with Indie pish and they're mitigated by the pleasing echoes of Steve Diggle's geetar style.

Blimey my missus and I saw that film recently. BONKERS and pretentious as the day is long.

I recently got my ears around Bo Ningen's Line the Wall

(http://o.scdn.co/300/a93b221613a279ed38dac9b61b284586970519a0)

"
Bo Ningen, a Tokyo quartet resident in London, resist geographical and musical categorization.

Their second album launches at hardcore velocity with Soko, but douses the explosives with swathes of psychedelic guitar; Chitei Ningen Mogura and Daikaisei Part II channel Hawkwind's space-biker blues; Nichiyou is louse-infested funk-metal; 32 Kaiten is a downtown New York drone shadowing Sonic Youth; Ten To Sen's comatose floatation tank dream pop drone recalls their countrymen Boris' meditative moments. Bo Ningen offer a perfectly blended cocktail of all the best back catalogues. "

Not my words, but unbelievably those of Stewart Lee who's quite fond of them. If that sounds like your bag, I'd check it out. It's certainly mine.

Bag that is.

I know what you mean, Fox, but in the olden days we just watched whatever was on telly. I'm rewatching The Cook, The Thief ... at the moment, and it's exactly as poncey but not half as random as I remember it being when I was a wee boy. It still feels as if it isn't for the likes of me, but that makes mastering it and assigning it a place on my personal critical pantheon (above White Chicks but well below They Live) a more rewarding experience.

I liked Bo Lingen, but I'd be surprised if every review they ever get doesn't make the same Sonic Youth comparison as Stuart Lee does. I like my unlistenable Japanese noise to be genuinely unlistenable (https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=rrWImtjhMiw#t=61s).

Phil Spector's little symphonies for the kids (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-0upHlWfQ4)

Ronnie Spector is as fine an example of the human race as her ex-husband isn't (genius aside). My favourite description of Ronnie's voice (Scorsese (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJSe9dBjtf0)'s, I think) is that - compared to the white bread artists of her day -  she evoked the night, the street, grease, sweat, and the misery and the danger of sex. In her autobiography, she brags about fucking Dave Bowie - I think he got the better half of that deal. She tells a great story about Phil's afro wig.

In other news, the guyliner has been streaming down my face like ink from a chip wrapper discarded in an overflowing gutter at the news that My Chemical Romance have split (http://www.nme.com/news/my-chemical-romance/69356).  Emo either left me cold or laughing hysterically, but MCR were always much more musically interesting and culturally engaged than their peers, and were ultimately just a great rock band - one of the few you'll hear on mainstream radio nowadays.

Dave Grohl's soundtrack to his documentary Sound City: Real To Reel is WELL worth a listen. Features contributions from Paul McCartney, Trent Reznor and Stevie Nicks as well as many many more. Superb album.

That was old school, Goaty - even Flava Flav wears his hat pointing forwards nowadays. The sun was splitting the trees as I drove around for work today, and the first single from Daft Punk's new record - Get Lucky (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBJ9RnbK8G4) - was all over the radio, giving me an idea of what my Summer's going to be like. It's a departure from the purely electronic sound of their last few efforts (including their brilliant Tron soundtrack (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4cgLL8JaVI)), landing squarely halfway between the repetitious robot funk of Homework (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmi60Bd4jSs) and the shimmering swimming pool disco of Discovery (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L93-7vRfxNs), and it features NILE-fucking-ROGERS (!), from Chic (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YeFqVtFCJEk), on guitar - which is awesome.

No video yet, just this TV promo (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMJwcOiBoZE) demonstrating that I was wrong to dismiss the idea that I would ever buy anything featuring the airless whine of Pharrell Williams again. The Neptunes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GoRqsqpqGbc) made some great records in their time, but he didn't sing on any of them.

One of my favourite bands The Thermals have a new album out called Desperate Ground. I find it hard to describe why I like them so much - their scuzzy, whiny, lo Fi pop punk is unashamedly one-note, but it's a note that just feel laser targeted to appeal to me. They seem to have regained some of their spirit following their slightly bland, MOR-leaning last album.

Rudimental's Waiting All Night (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0z4Cg-PFHhs) is the new number one, and it's another old school tune that makes me worry I need to get up in time for my paper round in the morning.

If you don't like that, the Yeah Yeah Yeah's have got a new tune out called Sacrilege (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmRI3Ew4BvA), and it's just as much of a belter as Heads Will Roll (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=auzfTPp4moA) from the last album. The tricksy Irreversible/Memento-style video features ginger British lovely Lily Cole having it off with an entire town after they've set her on fire.

Kermode mentioned last Friday that the new Bertolluci film (Me and You) features The Dave Bowie Band's Space Oddity en Italiano (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vV-9BozysoA), and I've just got round to googling it. The lyrics are so totally different (http://translate.google.co.uk/translate?hl=en&sl=it&u=http://www.sing365.com/music/lyric.nsf/Ragazzo-Solo-Ragazza-Sola-lyrics-David-Bowie/DCD33DB240494D0F482568A200261B89&prev=/search%3Fq%3DRagazzo%2Bsolo,%2Bragazza%2Bsola,%2Blyrics%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26hs%3DJIj%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official&sa=X&ei=c9F2Uc7HM-nN0QXn_4H4DA&ved=0CDwQ7gEwAA) its difficult to see why they bothered, but it's got me thinking I should try to find out what other pop stars have done foreign language recordings of their hits.

Mental! Without the subtitles I'd have guessed that was being sung in Kazakhstani, but if you watch the video all the way to the end it appears there's a wee cottage industry of pop songs na Gael.

Sugarcubes (Sykurmolarnir) also did Icelandic takes on a lot of their stuff. You can decide for yourself which is the foreign one in these cases but the version of Water (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyUYaWcjN10) from Ilur Arfur is way better than the English release.

Anyone reckon that new Daft Punk album will be worth a punt? New single really growing on me.

I'll buy the album, but that's not really the way I listen to music anymore. I honestly can't remember the last time a single was released which felt so immediately perfect and immense as Get Lucky (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NV6Rdv1a3I), or which was so universally embraced. There are three separate areas at my work, each with their own sound system, and walking between them is like listening to an extended mix of that song, with a weird doppler effect as your transition from hearing the song's chorus in one area and the verse playing in another, all held together by the metronomic perfection of Nile Rogers's guitar line.

Still no more video than the one minute TV promo (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMJwcOiBoZE), but if you're sad enough to stare at the static record cover in this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NV6Rdv1a3I) until 2 min 20 sec they do a wee dance. See the four and a half million plays at the bottom of that page? One hundred of them were from me, before the song was up on Amazon (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Get-Lucky-Radio-Edit/dp/B00CEQRITO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1366912175&s=dmusic&sr=1-1) (or itunes (https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/get-lucky-radio-edit-feat./id636967993), if you enjoy paying ten pence more for no good reason).

Really can't get behind this one at all. Even through it's veneer of French irony the core of the track is just too unpleasantly funky for me. Strange what expectations will do though, if it hadn't been by Daft Punk there's no way I'd've listened to the whole track in the first place.

In less negative news, I picked up a new compilation of Flying Saucer Attack rarities (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eR2omvuhJWY) last weekend. Which is nice.

I love formless drone rock as much as the next man, Cosh, but can something be unpleasantly funky? Funk's the aural triangulation between your nuts, arse and ears (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=UypeE3zTwBs#t=20s); if something doesn't appeal to all three of those, it's not really funk.

Interesting stuff. And those sound clips from the second link are brilliant. Some top tunes, there.  My new favourite band? Could well be.
Having a fairly good knowledge of the history of US (proto)punk, but i dont recall ever coming across any mention of 'Death' before.

Even through it's veneer of French irony the core of the track is just too unpleasantly funky for me.

I love formless drone rock as much as the next man, Cosh, but can something be unpleasantly funky? Funk's the aural triangulation between your nuts, arse and ears (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=UypeE3zTwBs#t=20s); if something doesn't appeal to all three of those, it's not really funk. It's an inherently appealing and positive form.



If you don't like this 'born of funk' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDZFf0pm0SE) or this 'funk-o-meter just blew up!' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgaPvNEkeko) you're unfunkily maladjusted.

If it doesn't make you walk to the kitchen and put the kettle on in the style of Huggy Bear, it isn't funk (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=Jwe-g3GgJA0#t=101s). That link features a white hippy playing a violin through a wicka-wacha-wah-wah effects pedal, and it's still funky. Sad that Sly stooped to sampling Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=OAwaNWGLM0c#t=39s) on that track.

It's like a funky Hawkwind/King Crimson.

My favourite Sly story:

Back in the 1970s, when Sly was enjoying  life in Beverly Hills, tanked up with PCP and cocaine, he amused himself by keeping a pet baboon who would regularly torture his other pet – a bulldog – by teasing it and then leaping up out of its reach onto a fence. After many hours of watching this, Sly decided to teach the baboon a lesson: he smeared the fence with grease. Next time the ape leaped out of the way, he fell back down at the dog’s mercy. In the words of witness Larry Graham, “that dog turned the monkey over and fucked it.”

Sorry gents. I actively dislike that most recognisably funky bass sound, would go as far as to say that I loathe Superstition and get cheesed off when electronic acts decide they need to have real instruments in some misguided search for validation. Not that I'm saying that last applies to Daft Punk but I'd rather hear more like this please (https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CDUQtwIwAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DGbb8kZw-xRg&ei=IOGAUdDxCYaX0QXxwoDYBA&usg=AFQjCNH3xSi538_l6KW_Pxu11BeG9StJAQ).

Quality. Daft Punk followed that with the mainstream house of One More Time (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGBhQbmPwH8), and their last single was either the brilliant Technologic (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtdWHFwmd2o) or Derezzed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4cgLL8JaVI) from the Tron soundtrack. They've never really done the same thing twice, so I wouldn't worry that Random Access Memory represents the beginning of their retro-disco era. They've been moaning that EDM (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_dance_music) (get me, dropping hipster terms) is in a creative rut at the moment, so I think this is them paddling on their boards and waiting to catch the next big wave when it comes along.

That's clever, because Bangalter and de Homem-Christo started in the music business by covering a Beach Boys tune (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nveB78torB0) in their rock band, Darlin'.

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs on Jools Holland, notably not performing their fantastic new single Sacrilege (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmRI3Ew4BvA). Karen O's ditched the Hershey look for a cross between Vegas Elvis and Sue Pollard, and their numbers are at 25m 20s and 58m 10s (below). Seasick Steve's entertaining as always, and Vampire Weekend and Dido are on there too; which is great if you like them.

It was only the Fever to Tell album of there's I really liked. I had a mate who always used to play the first EP and I remember there was one song on it that I thought was ok but that was all. Then the next album, I think it was Show Your Bones(?), had a couple of decent songs on it but sounded like it could have been recorded in somebody's front room. After that I've not really been impressed by anything of theirs apart from the acoustic version of Hysteric. I think Ladyhawke seemed to surpass them with that whole sound and style, particularly with the Anxiety album. But still, enjoy yourself tonite!

Only in the same way the threads round here are supposed to concern themselves with the topic suggested by the title of the first post. I quite liked the jerky oddness of their first couple of records, but it was the genius incorporation of lush electronica with It's Blitz (and the danceability of Heads Will Roll specifically) which grabbed my attention. The new stuff's working for me too - enjoy the gig, radiator.

And that was on her debut, so you'd probably like songs off the second album all the more!
It's what she's good at; alternative music scene finds itself being something of the pop disco soundtrack. I've seen her music being referred to as 'future 80s'.

They were ace. They played three or four new songs but mostly it was a bit of a greatest hits type set. Great live band - Karen has a real magnetic star quality to her. The whole band seemed to be having a blast, grinning like loons throughout. Great night.

Regarding Ladyhawke, as I said each to their own - only heard one or two of her songs on the radio, just sounded like a rather feeble 80s pastiche kind of thing to me. Not for me.

Tom Waits is an absolute musical genius. An absolute favourite of mine, only Sonic Youth and Deerhoof get close. Personally I prefer his Island Records and afterwards stuff, to his Asylum Years stuff. While both phases of his musical career are utterly distinct (aside from Neil Young has there ever been such a clearly defined and sustained change in musical tone?) both are fantastic and entirely defined by the man's craft.

Tom Waits is a genius, not so pure and not so simple.

I hate it when I go through a musical drought but not the case lately. Went into town today and bought a bunch of CDs which I've been listening to online in the last few weeks.

Déjà Vu by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. I strayed across this online. Fantastic album.
Ten by Pearl Jam. Never had my own copy of this.
Electric Ladyland by Hendrix (of course). I have this somewhere on audio cassette (with the proper cover I – should add) but don't have anything to play it on. I got into it again as I bought it for someone's birthday recently as I was stuck for ideas.

Probably the best album I've heard in a long time is:
Cheap Thrills by Janis Joplin & Big Brother and the Holding Company
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXf3zXLd9gA
(With Robert Crumb cover.)
I went all over the place trying to find it today but will have to resort to iTunes or Amazon.

I held out with vinyl for quite a while before I caved in and started buying CDs. Now I am clinging onto CDs as I like having a physical format for my music. But it's clear the CD is a dying format.

What I will be listening to later is the new Primal Scream album More Light.

Supersurfer,
You've mentioned two absolutely 'classic' albums there which I would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone...
Deja Vu : By Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young....and
Cheap Thrills : By Janis Joplin and The Big Brother Holding Company..

A fine choice if I may say so !!

PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING - SPITFIRE
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_u4Md_aXVJE&autoplay=1

I watched the video with Ron Smith in mind.

Few coincidences:
• Yesterday morning one of the first things I did was finish off reading the fine Battler Britton by Garth Ennis and Colin Wilson. (Bought brand new for £3 from a local bookshop!)
• Last thing at night yesterday I strayed across the above video.
• They were playing live a today – tickets sold out.
• Venue is on other side of the road from where I am working – I can see venue through the window.

I will, but he probably won't see me.

Not only will he see, but he'll tip his head, give you an eyebrow wiggle over the rim of his spectacles, blow it right back, and ALL of this without dropping a note from the bass line to La Villa Strangiato.

Because Geddy Lee is THAT awesome!

It's always been a mystery to me why I don't like Echo and the Bunnymen as they were very much the sort of band I should've lapped up when I was a teenager. The closest I can come to an explanation is that there's an audible veneer of artifice to what should be pleasantly melancholic pop. However, I like plenty of other stuff which is a lot more fake and I'm a big fan of McCulloch's first solo album so who knows?

Anyway, as with Bowie, I like to give them another chance every so often and this time I think I really do like the title track from Ocean Rain (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Naw4TQgl_Zs).

In other news, the new Primal Scream album really isn't doing it for me and only Just Make it Stop (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rAdzJ1U0RU) rises above average on Low's latest.

Cos ya a damned fool... is that rude? Fantastic band. You are right in many ways they are at their best when doing breezy pop, but Ocean Rain as an album is probably knocking around my top ten of all time and live they are very hard to beat.

Ours was a ZX Spectrum household, so I never played that one; I was going to ask you to whistle the tune, then I remembered Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdzfOXkZrY0). That brilliant Nemesis theme has the same air of melancholy to it as Giorgio (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5m4ZkEqQrn0), but I think it's the way the low-key repetition of both tunes builds almost subliminally into something which actually sounds quite heroic that's the connecting factor.

I'm cheating here, but the BBC's David Bowie: Five Years (http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0214tj1/David_Bowie_Five_Years/) documentary is still up on iplayer. It cops out and adopts the usual talking heads format of most rock docs, but it also features some extraordinary archive material I've never seen anywhere before. It provides a fascinating illustration of how nothing new is ever created entirely from whole cloth (28 minutes and 10 seconds) and actual film of that 'Nazi salute' (http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lh4gs8kozo1qgkbz6o1_400.jpg) episode.

As the chemo ate away at him, the dreads just seemed to get bigger and bigger. Cancer aside, he makes a pretty good advert for living a life dedicated to filling your body and ravaging your brain with as many illegal substances as possible - see also Robert Downey Jr and Johnny Depp. Now you're pals you should ask him if he's looking at filling Chic's vacant bass player position, and get practicing (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kjb7vkUXh4).

Having seen Rush live in Glasgow last week and been mightily impressed (three hour set! Three drum solos! Bloody loud!), am currently digging into their most recent album, 'Clockwork Angels'. Probably the best thing they've done since the early 80s. 'The Wreckers' is a damnably catchy little number, and 'The Anarchist' has some deliciously Maiden-like inflections. Top notch.

How can you go wrong with lyrics and ryhmes like these?

I would probably go with 'Deep In The Hole' - probably their most consistently brilliant record and quite a good intro to the many sides of Chris Goss. 'Sunrise...' is probably my favourite though. Chris Goss has probably got my favourite voice in music - if he's involved in a record in some audible way, I'll tend to get hold of it.

Crikey! I didn't know Sufferbus was so expensive now. (I looked on Amazon)

I don't know what P&P charges are but you can get Sufferbus here......

http://www.treasurecraftrecords.com/mastersofreality/cd.html

The rereleased Blue Garden is good value as it now comes with the High how the moon live album with it.
I have no idea why they changed the track listing on the Blue Garden, the original flows much better. At least it now has Doraldinas Prophecies on it, one of their finest songs. It was only available on a Def American sampler previously. They played it on Tuesday and Chris Goss explained it is based around a fortune telling machine that was at an amusement park in upstate New York that he visited as a kid.

Greg M is right about Deep in the hole. Another of their best albums.

And I thought replacing her with another bass playing girl called Kim (http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/pixies-add-new-bassist-kim-shattuck-20130701) was a bit cheeky. This is going to sound like horse shit, but I thought 'Kim''s vocals on that song sounded oddly male - I assumed Frankie Noir was singing along.

I don't share your dislike of Trompe le Monde (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sq2ZTg5-9KI&list=PL08A58582C22A2E48), since I discovered it (and the equally reviled Bossa Nova (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOn_80y8Peg)) at the same time as Come On Pilgrim (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BiL99kDuLJA), Surfer Rosa (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjnSAwpbfEY) and Doolittle (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWYVGiPEEpc), so they're all just records by people I love to me. Surfer Rosa has a unique nastiness and bite to it, but that's as absent from Doolittle as it is from their cover of Head On (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXSmYHEpn7w). Joey Santiago's guitar playing is like mother's milk to me, so as long as that's present and correct I'm a happy boy.

Is Bossanova reviled? Its not as loved as either Come on Pilgram / Surfer Rosa (forever interwined by the CD) or Doolittle, but that's a bit different to be reviled. Its a great record and personally I think it sits fine with their earlier work.

Aye, I love Bossanova too, but that didn't appear to be the majority opinion among the fans I knew who had been into them at the time of the album's release. I think that has a lot to do with the perceptions folk form regarding bands as they emerge - those who experienced Surfer Rosa in isolation created a series of expectations about the band and what they represented based on a relatively small sample of material. When the band deviate from that imagined ideal, they've betrayed what they were always about.

I received their entire body of work, including sci-fi oddness and more straightforward rock dynamics, as a fait accompli, but I'm no different in my response to the new material (or the solo careers of the band members) than folk with cherished copies of Come On Pilgrim on vinyl. I should probably have mentioned that BAGBOY is available as a free download from the band's website (http://www.pixiesmusic.com/), because nobody pays for anything anymore.

Radkey (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ab9sSghJNeY), three brothers who must surely be the only non-white hardcore band in Kansas, and who are so punk rock they haven't put studio recordings of their songs on Youtube. You know how Get Lucky came out at the perfect time, just as the weather was getting nicer - Shy FX's old school Soon Come (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rW-AHPZ5YEM) is the opposite. It would have sounded brilliant when I was sitting with the bay windows open, drinking a 2 litre bottle of supermarket orange juice in an attempt to rehydrate after working all day, but it's just dying insects and intermittent rain lately.

I really like hipster favourites MS MR (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47iXIEkNYvM) too, but that's because I'm turning into a girl.

Here in Basel it's still 27C at 11 PM. I thought this song was fairly pleasant but, to be honest, it's been too hot to do anything but sit around whining today.

Most of the week I've found myself listening to the sort of light and frothy stuff that rarely gets run out on my iPod but I just heard this beauty on Tom Ravenscroft: In the Realms of Noble Savagery (http://honkeyfinger.bandcamp.com/track/in-the-realms-of-noble-savagery).

Listening to a Slade Best of after watching a cracking little documentary about the band on BBC4 recently.

Turns out they're a lot more credible than I'd originally believed and have a lot of good stories. And like a lot of bands, they have this whole best-ignored 80s period. Extra appreciation in Noddy's direction also for sticking to his Slade are not reforming outlook.

I've been revisiting The Fibionacci Sequence - Harp, a fantastic quartet playing obscure pieces suited for the harp, violin and flute. It's a cracker - they are varied numbers, and whereas I used to skip the more ethereal stuff to get the meaty numbers, I'm finding myself going back and chilling out to them.

Then I changed the CD to Manowar's 'Battle Hymns' and had to work really hard not to drive like a maniac. I really must take that album to the gym sometime.

Been lurking on this thread for a while. I have a broad range of music I listen to, but not much of it comes up here. Anyway, today I'm thinking 'What the hell - dive in - see what happens".

A fellow 2000 AD junkie, DJ Food, recently produced some limited edition vinyl of his album The Search Engine for Record Store Day 2013 (http://www.banquetrecords.com/RSD13DJFOOD;jsessionid=575F9723D339571C28CE0C43DDC89291) and I couldn't help noticing some remixes by Amorphous Androgynous (the collective also behind Future Sound of London). Dropped Mr Food a quick mail and he sent me a link to purchase said remixes via download (http://ninjatune.net/release/dj-food/the-illectrik-hoax-a-monstrous-psychedelic-bubble-mix-by-the-amorphous-androgynous).

Well - they are awesome. Simple as that. Track 1 is a cut of the end of the 17 minute Track 4 full epic "The Illectrik Hoax (A Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble Mix 17min)". it is the gritty, grungy, dirty, filthy guitar part - ideal for turning up to 11 when your family are down the shops (which they are right now and am expecting the neighbours to start banging the walls any minute!) Track 2 is a remix of GIANT and Track 3 is an Illectrik Hoax alternate mix - both also highly worthy.

If the rockers amongst you tut at electronic music, I urge you spend 70p on track 1 and see what you think. If there are any FSOL or Amorphous Androgynous fans amongst you - an essential purchase I'd say...

Yes indeed I am a man in motion...

Cheers Simeon, that's a sale. I couldn't get the preview function on the ninja tune site to work on my laptop, so here's the first track on Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KltKFvTpWiw) for anyone else interested. Amorphous Androgynous and FSOL rock.

Post by: Simon Beigh on 10 August, 2013, 05:34:19 pm
Indeed they do, Mr sauchie, however they are an eclectic bunch so before anyone rushes out and buys their back catalogue on the basis of this track have a listen to some of their other stuff first! Lifeforms is an ambient album of bleepy noises and slow beats, Accelerator is quite commercial dance music (sort of) and Dead Cities is grungy and down-right strange in places... Apparently their next album is funk and blaxploitation influenced!
Title: Re: What's everyone listening to...?
Post by: Dragonfly on 12 August, 2013, 07:38:20 pm
FSOL is one of my greatest 'bands' ever, and Lifeforms and Deadcities are two of the best albums, but for my money the best ambient album is 76.14 by Global Communication.
Am also interested in heavy music and have been listening to a lot of Cathedral, especially the first three albums.

Have never heard an Electric Wizard album but saw them live earlier this year and enjoyed them immensely, they do play at a pleasingly loud volume!
Also at the same event I saw, and discovered, Mugstar and they were amazing. One of the best gigs I have ever seen, really heavy but almost totally instrumental. They were outside in the merch area after and I went to say hello and bought a copy of every album they had, which was three.
Have been playing '...Sun,Broken...' for days now and am totally addicted to it, features one of those riffs that stays in your brain and threatens to drive you mad!

Do you like repetition and deafening volume? You're in luck, then (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7z73mOp6IVY). The Rodgers and Edwards-style breakdown and build back up again around the 3 minute mark is great, particularly since it features Stephen Hawking intoning the words Moon Pig into the fade.

The new Franz Ferdinand album Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action. Luckily, Mrs B spotted a review in the Sunday papers because I don't really keep up that well with modern music. But I like their stuff a lot, so I bought the deluxe version off Amazon. And it's fab! Short - but sweet. Lots of great hooks, bonkers lyrics and driving rhythms. Highly recommended

Oh - and the live album is good too - especially the "I Feel Love" cover!

Just transferred the tracks to my phone.

I don't listen to music all that much but I like a variety of types. My phone has a mixture of Rock (and different kinds of Rock) Soul, Irish pop (The Corrs in this case)  and Acid Jazz.  Even a little bit of hip-hop. I've got it playing on shuffle right now.

Siamese Dream is simply the finest rock album ever - there is no danger in ever revisiting them as that stuff hasn't dated.  Adore has dated really badly because of the drums (but i thought it had dated badly 6 months after it was released).

Their newer stuff is a little lacklustre, unfortunately.

I've also been listening to nick cave a LOT - his latest album is great stuff, nice and atmospheric.

Midlake - Trials of Van Occupanther is super (I hear their lead singer departed recently - sad news) (departed as in left the band, not dead) (i think he's not dead anyway - now i'm doubting myself)

I recently stumbled across Meat Puppets online and have been playing tons of their tunes which are on their official website. I hadn't heard of them. A lot of really good stuff there.

Also been listening to Vaselines. Fantastic band. I had an Indie compilation album back in the 90s and a standout track was by a band called Captain America who renamed as Eugenius because they had Marvel on their case. As if that wasn't enough their logo was based on that of C&A (are you listening Jazus B?). They had a stonkingly good track 'Flame on' (another comic reference there) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekve0jtVmsg. The main man then became part of The Vaselines. They had a great track called 'Let's Get Ugly' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xf9BmsbE2mg which reminds one of the dearly departed Otto Sump.

If you're climbing the branches of Nirvana's rock family tree, you'll want to have a listen to The Raincoats (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmVC7l9Cjeg) too, Supersoaker. Kurt said (in the sleeve notes of Incesticide) that rediscovering a copy of their first record was the only thing which had given him any pleasure during that mental year when they went from being an indie band to having the jocks who used to beat them up in high school fighting in the front row of their arena shows.

Did anyone see my new punk rock favourites, RADKEY (https://soundcloud.com/radkey-band/romance-dawn), on Later, the most polite and middle class expression of BBC wooly liberal niceness? The contrast between them and the tastefully ethereal dinner party chill of Goldfrapp which preceded them was marked; the contrast between them and Chas 'n' Dave who followed them, even more so. The barbarians at the gate feel of their appearance was lessened only by the way the terrified child drummer looks like Richard Ayoade tossing a salad:

I'm pretty amazed to find that I didn't make any reference to the new Blondes album (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAkQ6su1CN0) when it first popped up a couple of months ago. This was undoubtedly my feelgood album of the summer and I really didn't think it would be beat for the rest of the year.

Then Factory Floor came along with their album and blew the back of my head clean off (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0YkjMeKZcA8). I've heard people criticise this album for not having enough happen, which seems to be deliberately missing the point.

In the spirit of international cooperation, I've also rather fallen for this slice of Eurocheese (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRAMNWzfjcg). Not sure if it's made it's way back to dear old Blighty yet.

Blondes are mental once they get going, aren't they? I hadn't heard of Factory Floor before, so thanks.

Thanks Saucy, will check your links out.

Anyone watch the Pixies on the iTunes festival? Would've liked to have gone to that. I've seen them three times. One review said something was missing but sounded pretty good to me. Go to the iTunes store and you can watch it for free.

Am looking forward to seeing these fellas in November: http://publicservicebroadcasting.net. I will be finishing a big project a few days before so will be great to go to the gig and relax. Check out the Spitfire video. "A bird that breathes out fire and spits out death and destruction".

If you're climbing the branches of Nirvana's rock family tree, you'll want to have a listen to The Raincoats (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmVC7l9Cjeg) too, Supersoaker. Kurt said (in the sleeve notes of Incesticide) that rediscovering a copy of their first record was the only thing which had given him any pleasure during that mental year when they went from being an indie band to having the jocks who used to beat them up in high school fighting in the front row of their arena shows.

KICK OUT THE JAMS MOTHERFUCKER (http://www.bbc.co.uk/i/b03c8s3n/?t=12m18s)

Their first album (the one linked to) is quite brilliant. I have to say the version linked to (the version I have) is enhanced with 'Fairy Tale in a Supermarket' a quite stunningly good song.

I had a bit of a Cowboy Bebop marathon over the weekend and for the last 3 nights I've had Miles Davis on before bed. Not too keen on his later "experimental stuff" (for some reason Spinal Tap mk. 2 pops into my head when I say that) but everything before that was ace. Gotta order some Charlie Parker stuff when I've got the dosh.

I went to a concert my harp tutor, Glenda Clwyd, put on. It celebrated 40 years of her playing harp, covering the stuff she learnt in near chronological order. It included a wide variety if musical styles, such as classical, rat pack, and even harp versions of up to date pop stuff. It was bloody incredible! Her fingers must have been crippled by the end if it.

She got a massive roar of appreciation when she did this one, normally done as a duet or trio:

This week I have been mostly listening to the new Bardo Pond album (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CUqURTZnzw). It's good and all but I keep buying these and I don't think they've ever bettered the first one I got, On the Ellipse.

I've given up trying to absorb an album in one go these days.  It's bloody impossible!  Instead I've taken to playing the same CD in the car for several weeks while I ferry the kids around to their various events and social gatherings.  I've absorbed Midnite Vultures that way (bloody superb album!), and hopefully will do the same with The Information when it turns up next week.

After reading about how good their reformation gig was I've been listening to Loop a lot this week. It's actually quite interesting how traditionally rocky they sound now. Maybe that's just the way my perception has changed over the years or knowing the way Hampson went later with Main. Whatever, Got to Get it Over (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGVy-PVmotI) is pretty damned groovy.

Also been enjoying April Larson who seems to do a lot of drifting ambient and drone pieces. Here's her, vaguely representative, mashup of the Moon and Sunshine (https://soundcloud.com/april-larson/moon-reflecting-sunshine) soundtracks.

White Noise - An Electric Storm

From the lady who gave us the Doctor Who theme. (or so I heard) I forget her name but nothing a quick google search won't fix*. This is one of those albums that you really have to be in the right mood to listen to. And if you like to dabble in hallucinogenics I suggest giving this one a miss. A groundbreaking album for it's time (not that I was there) be careful what company you play this one in front of. They might think you are a bit mad.

My car journey too and fro Birmingham today was Therion's 'Theli'.  It's super cheesy operatic metal, with an Egyptian slant.  Kind of like a glam 'Powerslave'.  Lots of synths.  Fun to sing along to if you enjoy jumping between falsetto and growls.

Warpaint's newie (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnuFYYJHaY0), because it reminds me of the illusory Adult Contemporary Rock genre - Cowboy Junkies (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4XVJj4jER4), Mazzy Star (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3C0nnGlznwY), that kind of thing - that grown ups hipsters seemed to be into when I was a kid getting into music, and which always seemed to feature in the music segments of The Larry Sanders Show and Letterman.

Hadn't made that connection but I see what you mean. The album's quite pleasant but I find I listen to the first few tracks then sort of zone out.

Really enjoying the new Thee Silver Mt Zion Memorial Orchestra (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3ht_q6ube0) record: some of Godspeed with kind of songs. This is a bit annoying as it means I've unfairly ignored them for years. On the other hand, it means I have years worth of material to check out.

Also, Neneh Cherry's new single (https://soundcloud.com/neneh-cherry/blank-project).

Jesus, I'm on a couple of days off on leave and this is my second or third post of the day so far(must have caught the bug).
I'm currently listening to a San Fernando punk duo (2 sisters aged 14 and 17) called Dog Party. Absolutely love them; they do a cracking cover of the Ramones tune: Questioningly on Utube.

They just rectified my head canon that Avids are uniquel more Adapted to multi-ecological placements than Mammals during the paleogene, specifically during the Oligocine. Though large predatory birds where dominant during the  Eocene, they virtually died out by thee end of the aforementioned epoch.

I saw them play the title track from that live once upon a time and it was magic.

Amen ... saw them in Koln back in the nineties... One of the best gigs I've ever been to.  One of their tracks was being played on the radio the other day whilst the presenter was wurbling.  Wanted to scream at them to shut the f*** up and let us hear the music but then I realised I had made it to work so it wouldn't have mattered much anyway!

As an aside, going through a bit of Floyd phase at the moment.  Had a couple of iTunes vouchers for Christmas so trying some of the earlier stuff.

Just saw Tjm86' post and thought I would suggest the Floyds' most excellent collection on : Pink Floyd...The Delicate sound of Thunder.. :D
It's a compilation double album but is absolutely brilliant with nearly all the classics on it and a lot of it 'live'.....Just brilliant and Highly Recommended especially if you have iTunes vouchers to get 'rid off'.

Old Adam and Joe shows complete with the music. Smashing free plays and ridiculously stupid fun to listen to them waffle.

Hope Joe leaves the screenwriting stuff alone long enough to do Glasto with Buckules. Wish Buxton's mixtape was running still as well, that was a great concept for a 6 Music show.

Portishead - Third

I remember getting this the day it came out. My girlfriend at the time hated it because I listened to it over and over for ages. I still remember the first time listening to the first track and wondering if the cut off at the end was intentional or not. Great album. 9.5/10

I'm not normally into the whole "trip hop" type of thing but I must say I saw them at Glasto last year and was thoroughly swayed. Absolutely mesmerising performance - I've stuck Third on my listen list for future contemplation.

Recent discovery: Red Fang

I saw them supporting Mastodon a few years ago but only recently just heard a full album - brilliant stuff. They are an enormously fun stonery rock group - whose videos are hilarious :D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQPfQvLIseA

Looks like this is a double post due to low thread traffic. Soz.

I've been listening to lots of hip hop mix tapes lately so I thought I'd share the best ones with you. Not sure who else is into the old hippety hoppity apart from myself and Judda Fett but if you are, you should find something you like here.

All are free, legal downloads and all are BANGING.

Danny Brown - XXX - http://www.datpiff.com/Danny-Brown-XXX-mixtape.298540.html

Danny Brown has a really unique style and is perhaps an aquired taste. He's also very rude. Very, very rude. If you like this, his album Old is also very good.

Pete Rock and Camp Lo - 80 Blocks From Tiffanys Pt II - http://www.djbooth.net/index/albums/review/camp-lo-80-blocks-from-tiffanys-pt-ii

Pete Rock is a veteran hip hop producer and occasional MC of some distinction. Camp Lo is a decent MC. Together, and with the help of a plethora of guest stars, they've created this excellent party mix tape. Part 1 is out there somewhere too but it's not quite as polished and cohesive as Part 2.

Action Bronson and Party Supplies - Blue Chips - http://www.djbooth.net/index/mixtapes/entry/action-bronson-blue-chips-mixtape/

Rough, gruff ex-chef MC Action Bronson teams with Fools Gold producer duo Party Supplies for a mix tape on which all the tracks were recorded in one take and use samples of clips found on YouTube.

Jonwayne - Cassette 3: Marion Morrison - http://www.stonesthrow.com/news/2013/07/jonwayne-cassette-3

Jonwayne is a genius rapper/producer who makes thoughtful, intelligent hip hop with interesting, innovative and banging beats. I love this guy. His new album, Rap Album One is on my headphones all the time.

He, just yesterday, released another free mix tape which is just as good, if not better than Cassette 3, titled This Is False which can be downloaded here - http://www.stonesthrow.com/news/2012/03/jonwayne-this-is-false

Run The Jewels - Run The Jewels - http://foolsgoldrecs.com/runthejewels/

A bonafide rap supergroup. Killer Mike, who dropped one of the best hip hop albums of recent times in R.A.P Music teams with El-P (who also produced R.A.P Music), legendary MC/producer of 90's indie heroes Company Flow to bring you the BEST rap album of 2013. And it's FREE!

OK, that's it for now. Hope these will be of interest to some of you and that you enjoy them as much as I do.

It was my birthday the other day and my wife kindly got me a couple of CDs of albums that have long been absent from my collection (lost at parties, lent and never returned, who knows). When you return to records after such a long time it can be nerve racking as times and taste have often moved on and you can never be sure how you'll get on with them.

Anyway I'd heard Hoover Dam by Sugar on the radio the other day and so was pretty confident going into Copper Blue that it'd be a beaut and indeed it is. So glad I own this record again bloody brilliant and the version I have has so many treats. I'll be delving back into Bob Mould's solo stuff and Huska Du off the back of this, more stuff I've lost touch with.

Secondly is Liz Phair's Exit from Guyville and again not disappointed at all the record still really holds up well. The sleeve notes for this new edition (can you just get original editions anymore? Everything seems to be digitally remastered Special Editions with bonus DVDs!) are also very heart warming, pointing out that this is far from a simple 'pornstar manifesto' as it seemed to get labelled back in the day, rather is a complex look at what it is to be a woman during that period of change in society. Bloody great record.

Now then my good music and LFC friend Jeff got me a record I already had Sweet Baboo's brillant Ships and so has asked Deb, my wife, what I might be after. This rediscovery of a couple of old records I loved has made me feel bold. So a question can the new old me get on with say Carter USM that the old newish me loved so much... surely Carter don't still hold up?

Not only that, but their debut album features a fantastic album cover from 2000AD legend Cliff Robinson!

Here's a boring old war story for you. Many moons have passed over the great water since I saw Bob Mould play a solo show at the Sub Club in Glasgow. I think it must have been in between Workbook and Black Sheets of Rain as it was an acoustic set, with the exception of a blistering, unaccompanied electric guitar freakout for the encore. As well as a storming version of Too Far Down, this was the first time I ever heard Hoover Dam and it stuck in my head for years. Getting to the point, I suppose I've always found Copper Blue a bit too shiny and produced and I liked Beaster a lot more.

I'm sure I've probably mentioned this before but, if you haven't got it, Grant Hart's first solo album - Intolerance - is a an absolute corker.

That Liz Phair album is great too. You can tell a lot about someone by whether or not they burst out laughing the first time they hear Flower.

Brody Dalle (Distillers, Spinerette) has got a new record out. Starts off aimlessly charming * but kicks up the rhythm, and makes with the handclaps and ooh-ooh backing vocals around the 2m 50s mark for an exhilarating charge down the final straight. Annoyingly, I can listen to it on Youtube but can't buy it online yet - she's married to Josh Homme, so she probably won't miss my seventy pence:

MEET THE FOETUS/OH THE JOY (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VotKcEJyrbM)

Ha. Being a big fan of DLT's tangential connections, I once made someone a mixtape with the inspired sequencing of Bettie Serveert - Low - dEus. Then, a year or so ago, I was pleasantly surprised to find they'd been quietly putting out records at home for years.

Also worth noting that the video for Tomboy (thank you MTVs 120 minutes and Youtube for confirming I remembered it right) is surely the defining late 80s early 90s indie video. It brings together tropes that had and would define such low budget (and often so very poor if we're brutally honest) fare!

It's a bit full-on isn't it? I remember long ago I just hated the entire "post-rock" genre on principle because as a name it's the most po-faced and pretentious thing. GYBE are, by all accounts, very po-faced and pretentious but the music is enthralling. If you dislike something strongly without reason it's always worth listening to it anyway - it opened up a new bit in my brain.

Ministry - Land of Rape and Honey. A truly great album.

Radiohead - Kid A and Hail to the Thief. Radiohead are consistently excellent and my second fave band. (maybe not what you'd expect from a N Death fan, but hey-ho).

Laura Mvula - I really like 'Green Garden'. Beautifully funky track and great video too.

How could anyone on here pass up the opportunity to listen to a new album from a band called Slough Feg (formerly Lord Weird Slough Feg) (http://pitchfork.com/features/show-no-mercy/9324-slough-feg/)? I almost made it halfway through. With it's buzzy, Maiden-lite guitars and overwrought vocals seemingly about Viking warriors battling corrupted firewalls, this is hilariously bad stuff.

For something actually worth listening to, Neneh Cherry's (http://www.theguardian.com/music/musicblog/2014/feb/19/neneh-cherry-blank-project-album-stream) new album was the one I've most been looking forward to this year and maybe it doesn't quite live up to those expectations but it's still grand stuff.

I saw Slough Feg quite a bit the past few years as they are a local band, they put on a really good show!  The lead singer is quite entertaining to watch :)  I remember thinking "wtf is their name about" before I started reading 2000AD.

I think it's safe to say 'I dabble'.  I'm mostly prog metal, or NWOBHM, but do tread outside of that significantly in all sorts of directions.

Do you have any other recommendations?
Title: Re: What's everyone listening to...?
Post by: Greg M. on 26 February, 2014, 03:51:39 pm
Yeah, I'm a massive fan of doom in all its many incarnations. In terms of old school stuff, if you haven’t heard Trouble, I would recommend them extremely highly – the first couple of albums (Psalm 9 and The Skull) are in a similar vein to Candlemass, though their best album, the self-titled one from 1990, is difficult to get hold of for a reasonable price. Another excellent doom act is Saint Vitus – ‘Born Too Late’ is considered the classic. Witchfinder General are a pivotal 80s UK doom-via-NWOBHM act – I’ve got a lot of time for their ‘Death Penalty’ album.

In terms of more modern stuff, Warning’s ‘Watching From a Distance’ is probably the most soul-crushing, heart-rending, misery-inducing piece of heaviness ever recorded. It is slow, gruelling and flawlessly brilliant but by god, it puts you through the emotional ringer. Other recommendations would include Electric Wizard's 'Dopethrone' and any of Reverend Bizarre's stuff. Happy listening! (Or unhappy listening... it is doom, after all.)

Yes Greg M is on the money there - great recommendations. Beyond early (arguably) proto-doom stuff like Sabbath and other early seventies hard rock the first "proper" doom I heard was Electric Wizard who are also cracking live.

Some very good doom records are:

(https://eu.rymimg.com/lk/s/l/0ef56cec220f8a32a76bb57656a2d1e0/2689526.jpg)
Electric Wizard - Dopethrone

(https://eu.rymimg.com/lk/s/l/6b63b29f33020c9a9737690df67edcf6/2208895.jpg)
Sleep - Dopesmoker (Although this is arguably more stoner - and also an hour long song rather than an album but it is amazing)

(https://eu.rymimg.com/lk/s/l/4ef91e943275a397943af4501dfea3c2/1287224.jpg)
Reverend Bizarre - In the Rectory of the Bizarre Reverend

(https://eu.rymimg.com/lk/s/l/6180a141aaa75a8896bd76c0994b7a29/4372780.jpg)
Cathedral - The Ethereal Mirror

Although yes Greg M is right on the money with the eighties roots stuff like Candlemass, Saint Vitus & Trouble although I'm less familiar with them (at the moment!). Pentagrams 1985 self-titled is up there too.

Aaah sweet doom.
Title: Re: What's everyone listening to...?
Post by: Greg M. on 26 February, 2014, 06:07:44 pm
Bonus points to CFM for picking my favourite Cathedral record. There was a time in the 90s when I was buying virtually everything that came out on Lee Dorrian's Rise Above label - of which I am particularly glad 'cos some of it isn't so easy to get hold of now. (Acrimony's brilliant 'Tumuli Shroomaroom' for one!)  And yes, definitely Pentagram too - the 'First Daze Here' collections are particularly strong if you want that authentic creepy recorded-in-a-barn-forty-years-ago vibe.
Title: Re: What's everyone listening to...?
Post by: shaolin_monkey on 26 February, 2014, 06:21:42 pm

The person who put that up had another of list of 50 others, but the one I linked is the better, personal favourites so far are Lucifer by Dies Irae and Futilist's Lament by High Tide. What I learned from that video is Black Sabbath weren't really alone in the heavy blues stakes back then, like Buffalo and May Blitz were labelmates with them at Vertigo.
Title: Re: What's everyone listening to...?
Post by: Greg M. on 26 February, 2014, 08:45:01 pm
A right smorgasbord there, Otter, cheers! I have records by a quite few of these bands - Bang, Sir Lord Baltimore, Dust, High Tide, Buffalo, Cactus, Blue Cheer, Captain Beyond, Edgar Broughton, Flower Travellin' Band, Josefus, Jerusalem, Truth and Janey - but there's heaps there I've not encountered. Proto-metal is one of my absolute passions right now - particular highlights for me at the moment are Tucky Buzzard, Irish Coffee, Necromandus, Lucifer's Friend and one of my absolute favourite obscure mid-70s acts - Dirty Tricks. Their self-titled record is just brilliant - 'Back Off Evil' is proper bluesy doom, in the same vein as 'Jury' off Trapeze's amazing 'Medusa' album.

can any of the muso-loving folks that frequent this thread help someone with poor web-fu track down a song?

Many years ago, a flatmate had the original 7" single of Birthday by the Sugarcubes. I much preferred the B side, which was the same song but in the original Icelandic version. My tape of it is long gone but I've never been able to find a download of it. Google searches bring up zillions of hits for the English version and adding "Icelandic" only tells me, surprise surprise, that they are an Icelandic band.

Any tips?

Hi Dan. One thing which may help your quest is the band's name in Icelandic: Sykurmolarnir. I'd be surprised if you can't find a copy of the single on Discogs. Vaguely remember a thread here about bands doing their own songs in different languages. The Sugarcubes' second album is a totally different beast in its Illur Arfur incarnation.

NB: If your mobile phone hasn't got any means of coupling to a pc simply play your recording alongside a friends phone. They can make a recording of your recording and then follow the instructions above to make a crisp mp3 copy for your listening pleasure. I hope this is of some use to you.  ;)

FUCK ME! I had the tablet hooked up to my amp when I clicked on that Youtube link, and the punishing racket it made was fantastic. I've only heard a couple of things by Frost before, and none of them had that number's propulsive quality - if they had, I might have risked a night of close confinement with a bunch of students in the wee toon that thinks it's a city. Cheers for Buttress too, Judda; anything with echoes of horrorcore is alright by me.

I'm going to ruin the underground cool of the thread, and admit that if I'd spent the weekend swigging imported beer from the bottle in designer bars while trying to chat up disinterested Czech waitresses (instead of doing the grout in the bathroom), I'd have been listening to this hipster lady music (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=NL9T42SVnN0#t=93) at deafening volume and secretly enjoying it.

Awesome City Club - like most distinctive jpop, you can trace the roots of this back to an eclectic mix of styles from Western MOR, particularly the early-90s British charts in ACC's case, as tracks like Lesson wear the influence of Jamiroquai alongside Scissor Sisters and the Lighthouse Family to create an inoffensive and occasionally charming easy listening standard, even though by rights the end result should sound like something that should be burned with fire from the face of the Earth.  I don't see them being anyone's favorite band, but I could see some of their tracks finding their way onto the MP3 players of anyone but the most joyless hipster jerks.

Also Babymetal - who I dismissed a couple of years ago as an idol knockoff of The Brilliant Green, but I can admit when I'm wrong, as Babymetal are a complete hoot - moreso once you twig that they aren't joking.  Not even a little.
Though still married as a stage act to nightmarish mindworms like Doki Doki Morning and Ii Ne, they've also added some fantastic thrash licks to the likes of Death and Megitsune that to my mind pushes the band ahead of many "proper" metal outfits in terms of high-energy pomp, while Onedari Daisakusen is elevated from turgid rap-metal shite (it starts out sounding like Max Cavalera-era Sepultura and then turns right into Limp Bizkit - surely the very definition of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory) to something vaguely sublime by the knowledge that it's sung by 13 year old girls as a day job between home schooling lessons, and yet it is identical to a Wes Borland-era Limp Bizkit track right down to mic checks and spoken verses about rap music only being about money, though naturally I imagine most people have their own thoughts on whether the world needs more Limp Bizkit cuts.  My favorite track is probably Death, as the multilingual play on "death"/"desu" is just the kind of self-aggrandising sneer that's sadly missed from modern metal outside parody acts like Steel Panther, but the structure of the track also mimics perfectly the bit near the end of Black Sabbath's Black Sabbath (from the album Black Sabbath) where the church bells end and guitars thunder and suddenly metal was born, but I suspect those who came up with metal just as it was going mainstream in the early 2000s will get more from it than crusty oldsters like me, as the influences of Slipknot, Bizkit, Sepultura, Dragonforce, Sabbath etc aren't hard to discern.

Megitsune is a decent track, but it suffers from sounding a bit like a Gundam theme.  I'd sooner link to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKfp9aKu1Mo and draw your attention to
(1) the kidults in the audience who clearly came for a metal gig rather than a pop concert, and
(2) the use of red-on-black in the stage and costume design, which alongside the guitar turns in the song show a clear influence from Marilyn Manson's Antichrist Superstar phase, which means that the guy setting up their current look was a hair's bredth away from dressing teenage pop stars in Nazi uniforms.

The only sane response to two consecutive afternoons of nice weather in Scotland is to open all your windows, crank up the bass, and pretend you're in Kingston (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wH_0_pijbZY).

Fuck you, Pro; thanks to your churlish refusal to provide a link (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cK3NMZAUKGw), I had to google that myself. Those girls are at least as genuine as Linkin Park.


Except far more entertaining; bit of a Rammstein vibe.

Bah. While my pallid brethren have been firmly taps aff for the holiday weekend, the temperatures here almost plummeted into single figures. As a result, I've been mostly listening to songs with actual words of late. Here's the enjoyably raucous Cloud Nothings (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qR7hJ6AGKTs) and the more claustrophobic EMA (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ydpo-0lkuLE).

You went Rock on me, man. That's happening less and less every month - if I wasn't scared of sounding like the Columbia record executive who turned down the Beatles because guitar bands were over, I'd say that Emo was the last period of mainstream popularity for the entire genre. That last Fallout Boy record sank, and wanky indie bands like The Kooks (p-tooh!) are working with hip hop producers to try and get airplay. If it pleases the court, I'd like to submit the new Black Keys single (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZZUY32iCzU) as exhibit number one.

My big sister was a mosher and so rawk has seeped into my pores over time. I really haven't been keeping tabs on where the heavier side of the music spectrum is currently at - that might be made apparent by the fact that those three songs are at least ten years old.

I like tortured guitar and punishing drums, me, and it's odd to think a whole section of music might be slipping into irrelevance, like Jazz had by the time I was a kid. American kids who used to lap up Rawk seem to have been seduced by not dissimilar dynamics of dubstep (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJVmu6yttiw) and the monstrous redneck/dance hybrids (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLpX6EgfO8aPIBrlHfktk5iAn6oNNPcmvp) currently terrorising daytime radio. Mention of Isobel Campbell reminds me of the similarly sweet vocals of Lauren Mayberry (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yI1AN6zlJ4Y) ...

I was looking on Amazon to see if there was anything to buy so I could have the excitement of thinking "I wonder if the postman has been yet!" for a few days when I saw Bloc Party had released a 'new' album (I know the second and third albums aren't up to much but I still really like Silent Alarm) so I ordered it and it arrived recently. Turns out the fourth album is no good so I decided to listen to Where You Been by Dinosaur Junior for the first time in years and it turns out it's still a cracking album.

Got to add my 'two pence' worth here......Rory Gallagher was one of the finest blues guitarists ever to grace these shores,  and a genuinely decent and humble man as well.... I was fortunate enough to see him live in concert 5 times during the 70's,  and have remained such a fan that when I was ' paid off / compulsory retired',  I splashed out and bought myself a Fender Custom shop replica of his battered 61 Stratocaster......

For a truly wonderful example of his blistering guitar playing,  check out his great album Irish Tour 74.....................
I guarantee you will not be disappointed !! .

The Horrors (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wr7TAfOkEVc) finally come good, and make a record I like. Only took a decade. It's a pleasant bit of psychedelia/late eighties Goth, which means it sounds both perfect for the long Summer days ahead and as oddly incongruous as someone wearing a leather jacket and skinny black jeans in sweltering heat.

First listen suggests a good tune but an unconvincing production - guitars a little quiet, a bit far back in the mix. Definitely more classically Priest than Nostradamus was. That said, I always worry whenever Glenn Tipton says he's deliberately trying to give people what they want - that was the sort of bandwagon-y thinking that got us Turbo and Jugulator. Just be yourselves, lads - which, admittedly, it sounds like they have.

Getting really into the new Brody Dalle solo album just now. My other half has always been a big Distillers/Spinnerette fan so I've heard a lot of her previous stuff and been to gigs and whatnot (and have always had a massive pin-up crush on Dalle, in a 'posters all over my walls when I was a youngster' sort of way) but this is actually the first time I've found myself actively spinning one of her albums myself in a big way. Lots of swagger, lots of hooks, love it.

Aye, gets the thumbs up from me too. Although, as with Courtney Love and Live Through This (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YClwi85EtI&feature=player_detailpage#t=746), it's obviously only good because her rock star husband (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOXaUjGk-yY) wrote it all for her. Never mind boring old rock royalty, though - the world's gone mad for Tuba-step (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rymUSbYQjw8&feature=player_detailpage#t=59). No, seriously, someone really has made a tuba-led dance record (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rymUSbYQjw8&feature=player_detailpage#t=59). Honest, it's not a joke; just click on the link (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rymUSbYQjw8&feature=player_detailpage#t=59) and you'll see it's true - thousands of kids will be getting off their faces this weekend to what sounds like someone making fake pumping noises (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rymUSbYQjw8&feature=player_detailpage#t=59) out of the corner of their mouth.

See also every Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis tune. Those songs were never meant to be listened to as a body of work. They were heard individually on a jukebox or - more usually - on radio, and a recurring musical or vocal motif performed the same function as the MGM lion roaring or a Channel Four ident, announcing that you were listening to a song by a certain artist, so you didn't have to wait for the DJ to back-announce it or go over to the jukebox and take note of the details in order to go out and buy it the next day.

That's why Jason Derulo used to go JAY-SON-DE-RU-UU-LO at the start of all his records and the start of most hip-hop tunes consist of an ensemble reading of the PRS details of everyone involved.

Stocking up on new books and music, I've decided to start getting- in chronological order- the Joseph Arthur albums because somebody played Nuclear Daydream and more to me ages ago and I liked it. His first two albums (Big City Secrets and Come to Where I'm From) recently arrived and I'm not sure which of the two is my favourite as yet as Big City has a track on it with Brian Eno and Peter Gabriel offering backing vocals so there are bonus points from me there but there are elements in Come to that remind you of the first album in a way and highlights Arthur's progression in doing so. Off the strength of these two I'll order two more come payday, happy to know I've still got his Lonely Astronauts material to come as well as his latest offering The Ballad of Boogie Christ

Been getting a lot of mileage out of my copy of 'Night Time' by Killing Joke lately.

It's an unusual thing for me to own - Killing Jokeare a band I genuinely don't rate much, but this is an absolutely CRACKING album. Looking past the '80s-tastic vocals, there's a lot of very energetic, cannily composed music on it.

CARCASS - Surgical Steel.

First new album in a good many years from the ultimate Death band (fuck you Cannibal Corpse and your shit lyrics).

It really is a Stonkingly good album, easily on parr with their mid-nineties effort Heartwork. The album opens with an instrumental song (1985), and then pounds away with quite melodic ferocity.

A particular favorite track of mine is "The Master Butchers Apron".

A very strong 8.5/10 for this album.


Cheers

Half asleep after finishing work, I spotted a new thread on the board called Best c-diff ever and foolishly thought it was some kind of abbreviation to the best difference in sound when a recorded track was moved over to digital quality. Because of that I went to this
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5c-LVYnafg
The Beatles' Hey Jude which, apparently when only moved to digital (I've never heard it on vinyl...), the sound was clear enough to pick up Lennon saying "Fucking hell" in the background as his earphones slipped off. You hear it on the 2min 57/58 mark. Those pesky Beatles just keep striking with their hidden messages!

The definitive ratings of my MSP album collection -

Generation Terrorists - Good stuff if over ambitious
Gold Against The Soul - Singles OK the rest is middling
The Holy Bible - Best Thing Ever!
Everything Must Go - Not a bad comeback
This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours - Hollow and cold
Know Your Enemy - The rot has definitely set in
Lifeblood - I only bought this to complete my collection
Send Away The Tigers - Disillusioned after Lifeblood so only bought on the strength of the lead single
Journal For Plague Lovers - The best that they've been for a long time
Postcards From A Young Man - A worrying step backwards
Rewind The Film - Bringing in guest vocalists has reinvigorated them

Like I said I am a big fan and will continue to buy whatever they release (new album soon) but like my other favourite heritage band R.E.M. (R.I.P.) I am not blind to the fact that once they lost a key member of the group they also lost a little bit of magic too and resorted to trading on past glories. :'(

Bucking the trend of old men sitting around listening to bands from their youth, I've been plowing through some lovely electronic stuff lately.

Zomby - With Love is (unsurprisingly) a love letter to all the different forms of 'leccy music, with a varied mix of tracks offering great examples of drum and bass, rave, house, dub step and IDM among others.

Letherette - Letherette is a feel-good, bouncy party album calling to mind 80's pop, hip hop and house.

Luke Vibert - Ridmik the master of acid returns with this wobbly masterpiece of crisp beats and gloopy synths.

Machinedrum - Vapor City dark dance-hall meets IDM.

Kidkanevil and Daisuke Tanabe - Kidsuke playful, experimental music which harks back to a childhood you never had.

Plaid - Reachy Prints IDM elder-statesmen return to remind us how it should be done.

OK, that's all. Back to your dusty vinyl, long split-up bands and whispered conversations of how "it's not like it used to be".

That was terrible, but I suppose they were doing their best to disassociate themselves from the black clad skate-goth thing from the early noughties, like MCR with their last record (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egG7fiE89IU). Speaking of goths, Lana Del Rey embodies a wine bar/Topshop idea of sophistication, but I like this anyway.

Infinite regression along the path of Pussy Galore and the whole concept of turning up the overdrive on blues riffs to a relentless,thumping bass drum a accompaniment.

And why do all these bands have colours in their names?

The Black Keys ... The White Stripes ... Jon Spencer Blues Explosion ... Pussy Galore ... why do all these bands have colours in their names?

The colour of Pussy (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IK9pBpOFpk) in the case of the latter. A dispute concerning who had the idea of ripping off whomever first had the idea of ripping off someone else within the context of a musical form whose central, foundational motif is mimesis seems especially ridiculous when all the acts involved are basically Blues Hammer (https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=ZaM6lTmhnak#t=145). That spat between Jack White and ... everyone he's ever met (http://www.spin.com/articles/jack-white-dan-auerbach-beef-karen-elson-emails/) is brilliant, and the kind of thing you rarely get to see now acts are all media trained into bland anonymity.

Pop might finally be eating itself, as predicted.

Beg to differ on the value of the Black Keys, who I think earn their worthwihileness by producing great music  as opposed to schtick - the Auerbach/Jack White feud is entirely in Jack White's head, so its not so much a feud between them.... but yes, saying a 21st Century Blues band has ripped off another 21st Century Blues band is like Bernard Matthews trying to copyright the Turkey.

Theres an article on Forbes where TBKs are dismissed for their "faux" credibility and authenticity, when I think the endearing thing about them is their total lack of guile.  They like the kind of music I like and tend to make something in that vein... I find that worthwhile, especially in teh front row sweating out a few pounds I can ill afford to lose!

I got  copy of Brian May's album 'Back To The Light' last week. Two, in fact, due to an Amazon seller with an incredibly crappy attitude selling me his beer-oaked, cigarette flavoured second hand copy and having the cheek to pass it off as new. But, I digress.

This would be a pretty middling album if not for the double whammy of 'Love Token' and 'Resurrection', which make the album worthwhile all by themselves. The latter has some pretty inspiring riffage on it.

Five albums.

For nine quid.

And it's Rory, so they rock like a whole bunch of bastards!

I'm currently in that 'too much music to take in properly' phase. But this was one heckuva bargain. For anyone interested, the albums contained are 'Deuce', 'Jinx', ''Calling Card', 'Top Priority' and 'Fresh Evidence'. Lotsa great stuff there.

Ha! Funnily enough I listened to just this record (on CD single) just the other day. My daughter was intrigued by the cover. Anyway aside from really enjoying it and making me want to dig out a copy of Spooky it struck me how much it sounded like Screaming Mimi.

Who are Screaming Mimi, why don't you know Sheffield early 2000's local band scene? They are a band of my friends Jeff, Marti, Mark, Laureta and Jon and they played at our wedding. They really were very good.

Good find - not the best interview though! That's them minus Jeff (he was holiday as I recall) from a while ago (alas parenthood for 4 of the band has done for them).

Shame Electric Thighs one of their singles isn't there still as it was a fine video (clips in that interview) and good song. You can get it on Spotify, wonder what else is there. Have all their stuff on CD so never checked out what's around these days.

Oh hold on their MySpace is still there. Cool four songs there.

I lived in Sheffield for about five years from 1998 as a student but unfortunately don't remember them, maybe it was too early. But all this talk reminds me of an indie band called Velodrome 2000 whose members ran a record shop on Ecclesall Road back then. Remember them?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZhbxJRTeBU (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZhbxJRTeBU)

Is that rock club Corporation still open? It was a filthy place but some decent bands played there.

Back on thread, right now I am listening to El-P's Weareallgoingtoburninhellmegamixxx3. Here's a snippet:

I do indeed remember Velodrome 2000. There were a lot of great bands around Sheffield at that time. Personal favourites include Seafruit - the lead singer (I think he was) went in to manage The Attic Monkeys - he owned the upstairs bit of The Forum to as I recall, Pig 64, Chick Legs Weaver and a band whose band began with M but I can't quite remember. Bit like Mogawi but not Mogawi.

That was before Screaming Mini's time, they played their first gig in June 2004 at my mate Dave's 30th birthday. Though in those days Jeff and Marti and a few other friends were in a band called Action Speculator nee Love Walrus Attack (terrible name).

As for Corporation, while I'm the last person to ask about the Sheffield club scene these days I can confirm that its still there... or at least still puts flyers out and about. Many of the best venues alas are no more. The Earl has gone as has The Broadwalk and most sadly The Grapes.
Title: Re: What's everyone listening to...?
Post by: Third Estate Ned on 21 June, 2014, 09:59:10 am
That's a shame. I played a gig upstairs once in The Grapes (we had to pay to play), it was weird because downstairs was like a 1950s living room with elderly men mixing incongruously with young indie fans. I guess you'll always have the Leadmill and with two universities there's always bound to be lots of live music.

I'm not sure why - Pompeii (http://youtu.be/F90Cw4l-8NY)'s a pleasant enough tune, but nothing special. Most of the acts featured on that list are very middle class and middle of the road, so maybe that tells you more about who has the bandwidth necessary to stream their music than it does about who deserves to be number one.

I backed the Kickstarter campaign for the new album(s) by DJ QBert; Extraterrestria and GalaXXXian, and got the downloads last week. I've been listening to both albums loads over the weekend and they are fantastic.

Hip Hop heads may remember lightning-fast, award-winning Filipino turntablist QBert from his DJ band, Invisibl Skratch Piklz who were active during the 90's. He's back with a follow up to his 1998 album Wave Twisters and is still on top form.

There's a wacky, concept album style story behind the new music involving an intergalactic DJing tournament. The first album, Extraterrestria, is a collection of instrumental entries from around the Universe filled with weird samples, odd time signatures and plenty of skratching.

The second record, GalaXXXian, is Earth's entry into the tournament and features loads of guest MCs such as Kool Keith, Mr. Lif, Del tha Funky Homosapien and Madchild. This collection is more straight up Hip Hop but is no less exciting than the first record.

Anyone who likes Hip Hop will love this new stuff.

Finding myself listening to Everything Everything non-stop the last few days. Had heard the odd thing from them a while back but only just took a punt on the albums and love them.

Just endlessly inventive, probably the most interesting and progressive pop band I've heard in years (reminds me of when Mansun brought out 'Six', that album was a real prog-pop fest).

The second album feels a lot less manic but still fantastic, but it was these two tracks from the first album that really got my interest -

It’s all gone a bit Southern and sludgy for me recently, as Corrosion of Conformity, Crowbar and EyeHateGod have all conspired to release their new albums at roughly the same time. It’s the EyeHateGod that’s the current standout after preliminary listens – worth the 14 year (!) wait. It all takes me back to ’95, when Down’s ‘NOLA’ became a pivotal record in my musical history and threw open a whole new world of New Orleans-related goodness for me.

About 13:40 today, I was listening to Radio Four playing The Dead Kennedys. The World At One (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b047z8x9) broadcast a piece about the return of Jerry Brown, governor of California in the seventies, to try and sort out the mess Arnie left behind, and played California Über Alles (https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=GoA_zY6tqQw#t=11) (which immortalises Brown in song) to underscore the report. Hearing Jello Biafra's voice on the most middle class medium on Earth made me wish they'd invite him onto Start The Week to shake things up, or maybe Just A Minute. Only kidding; Jello Biafra has never spoken for just a minute in his life (https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=ZpUeo6wR7M4#t=159).

Been listening to a lot of Queen lately, having only recently decided I needed to own some of their stuff.

I literally had no proper idea what this band was all about.

I dunno how seriously I can take some of their '70s output - there's lots of great rock tunes there. I love stuff like White Queen and Brighton Rock... but then they go and follow that stuff up with ukeleles and kazoos?

But, you know what? I like it. There's never a dull moment. And I'd never appreciated how great these guys were as a band. Freddie Mercury's vocals, which always made me wince as a kid, are actually really nuanced and pitch perfect, which I'd never have appreciated 20 years ago. And BLOODY HELL does Brian May bust out some chops all over those records!

It's fun to hear the other guys in the band singing on the odd track here and there. I actually wonder what their fate smight have been if Roger Taylor had been their lead vocalist.

'Tis a revelation in my ears, alright.

Am in work early so am currently sat listening to Massive Attack - Blue Lines for about the 5th time in 3 days. Was gutted they were not televised at Glasto so just needed to reminisce.
This is still a classic album and has stood the twist of time. It still sounds like it could have been released last week not 23 years ago!! :o

Incredible to think Blue Lines was contemporaneous to the first wave of grunge - it's aged so much better. Probably not destined to maintain its cool beyond this Summer, Bullit, by Watermät, still gets up in your brain like neural syphilis. It has one if those lady videos, and if I was feeling generous I'd say its use of a looped woodwind sample exhibits some of the charm of The Avalanches:

After seeing The Pixies last weekend, my love for them has rekindled.  In my book, they pissed all over Nirvana and their ilk, and if Black Francis had looked anything like Kurt Cobain rather than an everyday Joe Sixpack*, I believe they would easily taken Nirvana's place in rock history.

Nobody screams and yelps in Spanish like The Pixies, and I hope they do it forever.


* Though with a name like Black Francis, you would expect someone looking a bit like Jack Sparrow.

Yep, 'Frank Black' probably suited him better appearance-wise, looking as he does like the type of man you'd have a Budweiser and a game of pool with once you'd changed out of your overalls. Nevertheless, I'm glad he's gone back to Black Francis, which is a name that befits someone capable of such dark, enigmatic lyrics and mad-dog barks and howls.

First time I ever saw the Pixies live was at the Queen's Hall in Edinburgh on the Dolittle tour the day after my 16th birthday. Couldn't see Dave Lovering's feet for the drums but Kim was wearing a pair of red patent kitten heels, Joey a well worn pair of steel toecapped workie's boots and Black Francis was screaming away barefoot.

Always thought his frame suited the voice and vice versa.

Who pays any attention to how the squidgy wee guy roaring his head off at the front of stage looks when Kim Deal's being Kim Deal (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56W16EMxi54) five feet to his left? Nordic Numanette Robyn was already responsible for one of my favourite tunes ever (http://youtu.be/J294A-R1Cjk), and her previous collaboration with Röyksopp (http://youtu.be/SfckrfOYAy4) took her score on my top ten to two. The latest product of their union hasn't quite made it onto my list of the very best, but it still shits imperiously upon everything else around from Olympian heights:

Lately, I've been listening to The Coral Sea (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXlto0A_aEI). This started out as Patti Smith's epic poem in memoriam of her friend, partner and lover(?) Robert Mapplethorpe. As with much of her stuff, the text switches in the same verse or line from deeply touching to unbearably precious. I guess that real "fuck Cosh and his bullshit opinion" artistry is why she's still going long after so many have fallen by the wayside.

The record I've linked to above is a public performance of the poem with accompaniment by Kevin Shields from out of my bloody valentine. The performance, as opposed to the poem, is by turns touching, elegiac, laughably purple, pretentious and then gut-wrenchingly emotional. The record has two separate performances of the same piece separated by a couple of months: there are differences but it'll take a few more listens to tell if one's better or just different.

The common anchor is definitely Shields' [attention Banners] guitar playing. Waves of controlled noise ebb and flow around Smith's voice, giving way to the occassional squall of feedback or tempestuous chord as if the hum and throb of electricity is the sea her memories are adrift in.

fucking hell.

Babymetal - who I dismissed a couple of years ago as an idol knockoff of The Brilliant Green, but I can admit when I'm wrong, as Babymetal are a complete hoot - moreso once you twig that they aren't joking.  Not even a little.
Though still married as a stage act to nightmarish mindworms like Doki Doki Morning and Ii Ne, they've also added some fantastic thrash licks to the likes of Death and Megitsune that to my mind pushes the band ahead of many "proper" metal outfits in terms of high-energy pomp, while Onedari Daisakusen is elevated from turgid rap-metal shite (it starts out sounding like Max Cavalera-era Sepultura and then turns right into Limp Bizkit - surely the very definition of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory) to something vaguely sublime by the knowledge that it's sung by 13 year old girls as a day job between home schooling lessons, and yet it is identical to a Wes Borland-era Limp Bizkit track right down to mic checks and spoken verses about rap music only being about money, though naturally I imagine most people have their own thoughts on whether the world needs more Limp Bizkit cuts.  My favorite track is probably Death, as the multilingual play on "death"/"desu" is just the kind of self-aggrandising sneer that's sadly missed from modern metal outside parody acts like Steel Panther, but the structure of the track also mimics perfectly the bit near the end of Black Sabbath's Black Sabbath (from the album Black Sabbath) where the church bells end and guitars thunder and suddenly metal was born, but I suspect those who came up with metal just as it was going mainstream in the early 2000s will get more from it than crusty oldsters like me, as the influences of Slipknot, Bizkit, Sepultura, Dragonforce, Sabbath etc aren't hard to discern.

Ahead of the curve as always, Pro. This is getting played on UK radio:

FKA Twigs (http://youtu.be/3yDP9MKVhZc) looks and sounds so sweet, but she's got a mouth on her like a docker. I don't think any of the promises she makes during the course of that song constitute a legally binding contract. She's so effortlessly cool she can even musically quote from Air Supply (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBMYow46LxQ) and get away with it.

I woke up with this in my head for no reason at all. I haven't heard or thought about it since childhood, and the only other purchase it has on my consciousness is that it was the basis of a gag in Cheers. Frasier's asked to say a few words at a special occasion and starts in on what appears to be one of his pompous, Keats-and-Kierkegaard-quote strewn monologues. "I heard a song on the radio today which seems to bear no small measure of relevance to the situation in which we find ourselves here.  ...

Oooh that may have to be a new acquisition. I love a bit of Hiassen and have read everything but the past 2 -3 novels. I used to visit the area where the novels are set regularly and you can actually picture the characters he writes out there. South Florida is a strange (but amazing) place indeed!

The album is far heavier than their last couple of efforts. More of a rock/metal sound and a slight toning down of the Synths.

Finally got around to checking out this Deafheaven album (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWyVhIBmdGw) the kids were all talking about six months ago. To my untrained ear it sounds like they've taken the drums and structure of thrashy metal but left the guitars tuned to indie rock. It's quite pleasant.

J Mascis' new album is a gentler, acoustic alternative. This one with added Cat Power (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4ea-11BUbA) is a highlight.

A lot of Kate Bush.

All sorts of things really. Lee Gamble's new album (http://pitchfork.com/advance/537-koch/) seems like a winner. There's a thing on track four where it sounds like the drum machine has been recorded from inside a giant hiking sock which is pretty amazing.

Mostly early, abrasive Sonic Youth though. It turns out there's this track, Flower (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPAZfuZtdks), that I'd never heard before which is an absolute corker. Goddamn these young people with their CD reissues adding good tracks to old albums instead of a load of dogshite demos. Anyway, it got me thinking about how, if pressed, I'd say I don't much care for Kim's tracks even though their best song is one of hers: Take my hand, you might as well/ We're goin' straight to Hell (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-a1j83vGRE).

I can confirm Ogre Battle is on it, and is an absolutely astounding version.

In fact, the entire album (Live at the Rainbow) has leapt into my top five live albums of all time, just under Live After Death by Iron Maiden (no 1) and Live and Dangerous by thin Lizzy (no 2).  It has pushed Dweezil Zappa's 'Return of the Son Of...' to no. 4, Deep Purple's Made in Japan to No. 5, and Portishead's Live in NYC to no. 6. 

Seriously, any Queen fan needs to get this album.  I am astonished it has not been released previously, as it is a bloody masterpiece.

I’m actually pretty kindly disposed to a lot of Queen’s later work. Some stuff, like Under Pressure and I Want To Break Free, I just can’t stick. But I’ve been listening to The Game just recently, and that’s a surprisingly addictive album. That in turn led me to dig out Hot Space, and on listening back, I’m surprised to find that I don’t hate it.

It really shows on some of those tracks how influenced by The Beatles those guys were.

For me The Game is kinda the tipping point. Like the albums prior to that - beyond that gets far more patchy. That's not to say there's not good stuff there just nowhere near as much as on early records. The Game itself okay and kinda bridges the two periods as I define them in my mind.

Haven't listened to Hot Space in donkey's
