  • Listening Pleasure and Recommendations

    What you guys listening to then, or think everyone should be listening to?

    I'd say, try these;

    Martin Grech 'Open Heart Zoo'
    Seafood 'As The Cry Flows'
    Interpol 'Turn Down the Bright Lights'

    I also think that Prince's new set, 'Musicology' is pretty good, but I need to listen to it some more :)

    Old stuff in the car mostly: Buzzcocks "Singles Going Steady" and a Hank Williams compilation (!).

    Also downloading more old stuff. I am old. Official.

    But there are only so many variations on the guitar fretboard, so I think the old stuff kicks ass. :D :D :D

          Quick check shows that last 10 artists I played were :

          Gene Clark
          Faust
          David Bowie
          Chris Bell
          Galaxie 500
          Josef K
          Mazzy Star
          Brian Eno
          Broadcast
          Kinski

          Which kind of suggests I'm in a backward looking mood.

            Stereolab! One of my favorites, too. It was a very sad day for me last December.

                Music I'll admit to having listened to today:

                Ben Folds Five - Naked Baby Photos
                Nirvana - In Utero
                Alanis Morissette - Jagged Little Pill (sing-a-long fun!)

                And later I'll probably watch my free Kerrang! DVD with a Distillers video on it and stare at Brody Dalle's navel over and over and over and over again.

                All-time favourite band of all-time: L7

                  Our Lady Peace - Spiritual Machines
                  Our Lady Peace - Gravity
                  Garbage - Version 2.0
                  Concrete Blonde - Bloodletting
                  Blue أ–yster Cult - Fire of Unknown Origin
                  Various Artists - Saturday Morning Cartoons' Greatest Hits

                  Outstanding.

                  With the exception of BOC (not that they are bad, just never got into them much), that is a killer list. OLP is excellent (Clumsy and Gravity are my personal favorites), Version 2.0 is way underrated next to the debut album, and Concrete Blonde can do no wrong as far as I am concerned (love Free).

                    And if you subsisted on cartoons as a kid, you simply cannot beat Tripping Daisy's cover of the Sigmund and the Seamonsters theme or the Ramones doing "Spider-Man" from the Saturday Morning's Greatest Hits CD.

                        I like "Open Up Your Heart And Let the Sunshine In" too, but it's hard to pick a favourite. That is a great CD! Go Speed Racer, go!!! (I don't even really know who Speed Racer is, but whoever he is, I'm pretty sure he should "go")

                          8O D, he only had the coolest freaking race-car ever!
                          I give you... The Mach 5!



                          Speed Racer was a cheesy anime cartoon from when I was really young (original release was in 1966, the year I was born). The animation was crappy, the dialog poorly translated, but I loved it more than anything else on TV. I actually have a 1/18 scale replica of the Mach 5. It's one of my most cherished toys!

                            Veteran-

                            Got to see BOC and Motorhead on the same bill at an outdoor show in '93. Awesome! So close, I could feel the amp waves over and around me! 8)

                            Like the Concrete Blonde. Got Bloodletting and Walking in London. Good Stuff! As well as Saturday Morning Cartoons. There is a story regarding that cd and a New Year's Eve party.
                            I won't repeat it here. :lol:

                              Forgot to mention; I will always commend Bjork, too. Her last two albums, 'Homogenic' and 'Vespertine', were works of art. She's so damn cute, too.
                              Call me cockey, but if there\'s an alien I can\'t kill, I haven\'t met him and killed him yet!
