I will be getting The Breeders new one soon - and even better, seeing them live next week. Now that will be good.

"Static And Silence" by The Sundays.

I've also been playing "When I'm Thinking About You" on the guitar (very easy chords) but I can't actually sing the chorus because it has a huuuuge vocal range.  Mrs Z is out at choir practice and I shall ask her to have a go when she returns, voice fully warmed up!

I did a lot of driving yesterday 500 miles thwere and back in fact and on the way back it was time to turn the stereo up LOUD ! On the playlist were:

West - Lucinda Williams

I sit just me or is her voice the sexiest in rock ?

El Corazón - Steve Earle

I cant believe this is ten years old now.

The Revolution Starts Now - Steve Earle

More recent and one of his more political albums. "Rich Mans War" is a cracker but there is a lovely bllad too "I Thought You Should Know".

Indeedy-doody.  They're supporting Olafur Arnalds in Noldon in June.  Should be an excellent gig...

Molotov - Changuich a la Chichona (Mexican rap music)

It has innuendo that would make hummers blush.

Quote
Changuich a la Chichona
Al pastor me echo una gringa
mas lechuga a la pechuga
Muslo aqui muslo aca y papas
a la francesa
quisiera comer mas de esa
pero esta mas buena la hamburguesa
ella quiere un king de polla
sushilitto no la llena
traiga un caldo pal Tlalpeño
un espagegeti al albañil
traele un trio de Mac a Anita
y traete un combo para mi
pero mira nomas que tortas
oh se ven tan deliciosas
cubana o una hawaiana
sin chile y sin cebollas
No quiero comer mas Kentuchy chota
o pincho a la española
la de Sanders mas discreta
no revela su receta
estan muy buenas sus garnachas
pero quiero echar bailon
quiere su chorizo en papas
o en barras de camaron

Changuich a la Chichona

Now if you're hungry for some bologna
and you got some buns that you wanna show me
open up wide you can eat
this Oscar Meyer that's really boney
I want to get down into your juju bees
and I think i'm gonna flick em'
you tities are smelin like chocolate chip
ice-cream n' I think I wanna lick em.
I got some hot beef for that rump roast
but you gotta say please
I'll dig into that thigh everytime but
but hold the cottage cheese
And for dessert we can do the works
I'll put my whip cream in your pie hole
and don't flinch when you feel a pinch on
that pretty litlle taco
Cuz I've tried to pry
a bearded clam that would no budge
so I went around the corner to keep on trying
and I got a little fudge

Para papas las de Wendy's
pero no las presta
mas mueve un par de tetas
qur chinguero de carretas
traiga un espaggeti al burro
con una cerveza en lata
la de malas que en la horchata
le pisen su quinta pata
guardenle unos chilaquiles
pa mañana el desayuno
y unos huevos divorciados
no queremos enredarnos
bimbo blanco o integral
no me importa me da igual
papa chapata mama chapata
y aqui estan sus chapatines
dinotriple o brontodoble
quarter pounder whopper doble
quiero hacerle un sandwichito
baile mas apretadito
mejor que la lambada
una pecada a la italiana
quiero bailar con bola
pero con la mas chichona

Mogwai Fear Satan!!!!  :demon:


He wasn't helped last night by the awful sound - all the synth melodies were drowned by the drums & bass. Just before he was about to start he looked to the sound desk, started to do a thumbs up and then looked shocked to find no-one behind the desk! He then got up & wandered thru' the crowd to the desk just as the Airiel guitarist/sound man for the night turned up. He needn't have bothered as he didn't appear to touch any of the dials anyway...

Just played: Thom Yorke - The Eraser
Now playing: Beth Gibbons & Rustin' Man - Out of Season (inspired by the Portishead thread, an album I've just ordered)

Sudden Sway on MySpace.  they have about a dozen MySpace sites (typical of a band that once released 8 different recordings (not remixes) of the same single on the same day.

If you've not come across them before, they're very, very odd.  At times musically interesting, but mostly odd.  I recommend "Ah metal blossom" after the first 46 seconds.

How does it compare to Hold Your Colour?

I got hold of the 2007 reissue version of Hold Your Colour last week, and comparing the two, there isn't much in it, but I'd say that In Silico just shades it. That's not to say that Hold Your Colour is a bad album, I quite like it...

dEUS - Vantage Point.

Not their best album (The Ideal Crash is still that IMHO) but still reliably good. They are a band who if they were British or American might well be regarded on a par with Radiohead et al. As they are Belgian, they remain relatively obscure art-rockers outside of their home country.

The Silver Jews' new album Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea, is wonderful. Funny, beautiful, tender and David Berman has a voice that Nick Cave would kill for. The band should be far better known, but I'm happy with being one of their few fans...

Also listening to dEUS' The Ideal Crash to remind me what a truly great band they can be, a confidence which was rather dented by their most recent release, which I have decided after a few listens is really rather dull, with the exception of a couple of tracks.

Bored at work, I listened to/watched Janacek's Vec Makropulos, the 1995 Glyndebourne production. The set design by Tobias Hoheisel is simple, but the final moments, as the lid of the piano opens (suspended upside down, high above the stage) and sheets of music fall...

After that I listened to some piano studies by Ligeti, and some early songs.

But the Janacek is visceral stuff, it doesn't let you go.

So I listened to 'From the House Of The Dead', as well, as I had never heard it before.

Goodness, I do have fun at work!

Just got this from the library along with Kate Rusby's 'Awkward Annie' album. I'm not normally into folk but these aren't too bad at all. And nice to hear regional accents in full flow!

That's one benefit of a decent audio library: getting out stuff you'd never normally listen to.

The  Fujiya & Miyagi  (http://www.myspace.com/fujiyaandmiyagi) one is pretty decent, although I think the overall quality has reduced with each of the 3 albums released so far (the track 'Rot' on the MySpace link is from the first album). Then again, maybe that's just 'cos I'm more familiar with the spoken vocal & lyrical style now & it doesn't appear so fresh now rather than there being any real quality drop  :-\

Or maybe I'm just being supercool/pretentious in an 'I saw them first' style ;D

I am underwhelmed to be honest. The new album is pleasant and undemanding enough but it is like listening to a bloodless imitation of Can (not Kraftwerk as everyone always says).

All three of their albums are good, but it's their first one, Manual, that I go back to more often. In some ways it is their most naive, where they wear their influences most on their sleeves, but the krautrock, analogue warmth is lovely.

Friday night was jazz night in Liverpool

First I listened to the Neil Cowley Trio at the Rodewald Suite. A really lively gig to a packed room. 

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=eQi5CcChNsc (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=eQi5CcChNsc)

When that finished I walked around the corner to  "The Caledonia" to see Marley Chingus....

[url=http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=hoAU_Cw4AK8]YouTube - MaRLEY CHiNGUS rockin out @ jazz at the caledonia (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=hoAU_Cw4AK8)[/url]

It was the drummers birthday........  The rest of the band were wearing masks made from photos of his face and the audience (it was packed with cute students!) had been given little placards to wave with more photos.  Quite surreal..

They are the resident band there, so I'll probably pop in next Friday as well.

Similar thing here; TWFKAML & I saw them supporting Robyn Hitchcock somewhere or other in Londonton.  She reckons that in the last fifteen years we've seen them more than any other band!

Mixed UP - The Cure (1990)

Wasn't a great success when it was released this one but it remains my favourite Cure album. Four sides (on vinyl I'm not sure how many CDs) of remixes of The Cures hits. The did the mixes themselves and some had been released on 12 inch before. Side B wit Lovesong and A Forest is particularly good.

Last night I spent an uncomfortable 3 hours in the company of Eddi Reader and her band.  Eddi was wonderful as always, but the seats at Pacific Road are like something out of a torture museum!

The opening act was a chap called Dean Owens from Leith.  Dean did 30 minutes with guitar & harmonica (and was joined by Kevin McGuire on double bass for a couple of tracks).

My favourite was "The Man From Leith", a tribute to his father.     I enjoyed his session so much I bought his new CD "Whiskey Hearts"

Not sure what that says about me then being somewhat more than 16 when they appeared on my radar, even if it was briefly. I saw them play a blistering set at Reading in nineteen-something based almost entirely around Eathshaker. I looked forward to the next album and tour and thought "Black Tiger" was pants so didn't bother. Someone played me a late eighties track of thiers ("Contagious"?) which was poodle rock at it's most hairsprayed. Awful. It was a brief affair.. :D

Along the same(ish) lines as Clarions previos post, iTunes came up with a little run in "Shuffle" mode that I'd never have come up with in a million years but worked brilliantly. Sequence as follows

Runrig - The Stamping Ground and Everything You See

The Summer Walkers from The Stamping Ground brought back good memories of Sutherland Audaxes, some lyrics below:

"And it's up by the Shin
And up by the Naver
And the long winding shores of Loch Maree
By Ben Hope and Ben Loyal
By Stack and by Arkle
The road reaches long now the summer is here"

I hope I can be back there soon, touring or doing the 300k again!

From Everything I see the Clash of the Ash is best.

The Doors - The Soft Parade: the difficult Doors album, much criticised but I like it and thats what counts!

It's actually the only Doors album I would really bother listening to any more. In adversity bands often create their best work, and this album with its ludicrous concept and Morrison's voice at its rawest is somehow more real and affecting than any of the more bombastic and pretentious stuff they did.

This morning was Tchaikovsky & Sibelius.   A swift visit to Oxfam saw me leave with Mahlers 2nd Symphony & Vaughan-Williams 9th, both on mint vinyl.    Another visit to "Hairy Records" gained me a Coleman Hawkins compilation and Ben Webster live at The Monmartre Club, Copenhagen. This last is superb, but I didn't read the sleeve notes properly in the shop.  It's the last part of a 3 LP set, so I've now got to start looking for the other 2!

Currently listening to "Blue Saxophones", Ben Webster, Coleman Hawkins, Oscar Petersen, Herb Ellis, Ray Brown & Alvin Stoller.   I bought this for £1.99 in a charity shop a few years ago and it's now one of my favourites.  Absolutely beautiful music  :)

The Lost Soul Band - The Land Of Do As You Please and Friday the 13th and Everything's Rosie. I might dig my vinyl out later as well.

I used to go and see them years ago when I was a student in Edinburgh and after I qualified when I worked in Kent I'd go see them in London and then they split up at the end of 1994 after 3 albums, a couple of singles and no chart success whatsoever. You can hear them on myspace, and Sunday night's gig is on youtube in various parts. They've reformed for a couple of farewell gigs, Spice Girls style, and I went to see them on Sunday and it was just like all the years just rolled away and I was young again. They were probably Scotland's best ever least successful band, they were just at the wrong time.

You know the Kingsmill ad with the song that goes you're lovely to me yes you are? That's Gordon Grahame, who is the singer of The Lost Soul Band.

It was so good to see them, and nice to have a chat with a couple of them afterwards too. I used to be quite pally with Gav, the percussionist, and their mate Sandy who is a legend on the Edinburgh pub band scene, but I hadn't seen either of them since the mid-90s.

I don't listen to much hip-hop but I like the non-traditional 'chainsaw sonics' on this - very 'industrial'. The lyrics seem to be much more socially aware too:

“Who trades his culture for dollars?
The fool or the scholar?
Griot? Poet? or White Collared?”

Megadeth - Youthanasia

Poor album title - but a great CD (their best work IMO) with great melodic  songs, perfectly executed with an incredible tight  woven sound, and Dave Mustaine's vocal performance is at its peak too. The classic 'A Tout Le Monde' is here alongside 'The Killing Road', 'Youthanasia',  and 'Elysian Fields'. In truth not a duff track to be found, can be played all the way through without resort to the 'skip' button  - recommended to  those who like a capital R in their Rock :thumbsup:

First album or new one? The first is great - I intended seeing them live tomorrow but left it too late: sold out  :(

The Duke Spirit are similar and also worth a listen.

Radio Wars - tis v good. Must get the first one too.

I have to say I'm really loving The Whip's album - sort of New Order meets OMD meets the Psychedelic Furs.

Astronomy Domine from Live in Gdansk right now, using Spotify.

I've managed to improve the sound quality alot by playing with the audio settings in Wine.  Native would be better (hint, hint).

Yes but it is a great song which still has bite 23 years later,   you should listen to the album it came off  'The Colour of Spring' - a superb record. Mind you the army of supporting musicians made it happen - Morris Peart & Steve Winwood amongst them.

The rather marvellous "Blockheads", where Ian Dury anticipated chav culture by 25 years.

Quote
You must have seen parties of Blockheads
With blotched and lagered skin
Blockheads with food particles in their teeth
What a horrible state they're in

They've got womanly breasts under pale mauve vests
Shoes like dead pigs' noses
Cornflake packet jacket, catalogue trousers
A mouth what never closes

You must have seen Blockheads in raucous teams
Dressed up after work
Who screw their poor old Eileens
Get sloshed and go berserk

Rotary accessory watches
Hire-purchase signet rings
A beauty to the bully boys
No lonely vestige clings

Why bother at all about Blockheads?
Why shouldn't they do as they please?
You know if it came to a brainy game
You could baffle a Blockhead with ease

How would you like one puffing and blowing in your ear-hole?
Or pissing in your swimming pool?

Bigger brained Blockheads often acquire
Black and orange cars
Premature ejaculation drivers
Their soft-top's got roll-bars

'Fill her up,' they say to Blockheads
'Go on, stick it where it hurts'
Their shapeless haircuts don't enhance
Their ghastly patterned shirts

Why bother at all about Blockheads?
Superior as you are
You're thoughtful and kind with a well-stocked mind
A Blockhead can't think very far

Imagine finding one in your laundry basket
Banging nails in your big black dog


Why bother at all about Blockheads?
Why should you care what they do?
Cos after all is said and done
You're a Blockhead too

I'm afraid not - to me, most Brazilian rock just sounds like good imitations of European and US stuff. Skank were the best of the bunch I heard, but not worth buying...

The Very Best Of Roy Orbison.  Somehow he does emotion without being cheesy.

Why is it that U2's best songs are the ones they wrote for other people?  There's Roy doing "She's A Mystery To Me", and Johnny Cash's "The Wanderer".  Maybe it's because Bono sings like a dog howling at the moon and The Edge doesn't really play guitar.

Damn good (as all the shows I've seen), though the set was a bit too short for my taste (only 90 mins- the displayed set time was 8.30-10.30, but they were off at 10.10). As with last year's gigs, the emphasis firmly on old stuff, this time nothing from the 2003 album or Hosannas.

I have just discovered The Wave Pictures... and their new album, Instant Coffee Baby is excellent. It reminds me a little of Violent Femmes, Beat Happening and a little bit of Clap Your Hands, Say Yeah. Acerbic, observational, funny-sad songs of slacker lo-fi love.

Incidentally, this is what record shops are for - if I hadn't happened to have heard them in RPM in Newcastle, I never would have thought of buying this record. Facebook, MySpace etc. just keep you in a comfort zone...

I don't understand people who say this. There is a greater variety of more interesting and adventurous music around now than ever before, and you have more ways of accessing it - maybe not in 'the charts' or in the mainstream but when was that ever the case? At the same time, the back catalogue of the entire musical history of the world is also more accessible than ever.

You're just mature, thats all. Seeking novelty is a juvenile characteristic, it's your place to judge everything in the light of what you already know. Accept your destiny, and revel in your liberation from the tyranny of the new.
We are living in a golden age, you can't go wrong with Radcliffe and Maconie and the stuff on BBC4.

It's the track played on the rather superb Virgin Advert (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0m4-4xkrIY)  and I had to find out what it was.  Now I'm looping it on Spotify.

(I incorectly guessed it was the Cowboy Junkies)

Thanks for that - I'd been wondering what it was!  :thumbsup:

Looks like I'll be on Spotify too: it isn't available on eMusic :(



Listening to their Album, "So Tonight That I Might See", today (I'm only 16 years out of touch) and I'd still have guessed it was the Cowboy Junkies.  This is a good thing but it's an album for late at night rather than friday morning.

Where it is by The Beloved - from their early pre-Happiness days when they were trying to be New Order.  I found the album as a free down load.  I'd happily have paid but I don't think it's ever been released on CD or as digital download so I'm jolly chuffed to find it.  My apologies to the artist, I'll bung Jon Marsh a fiver if he needs it.

I'd heard the title track on Planet Rock, of all radio stations, and was curious... The obituary in the Times described him as "an electrifying guitarist and singer whose music blurred the boundaries between folk, jazz, rock and blues".

On initial listening, I can see where the author of that comment is coming from. Looks like I'll have to go and get "Solid Air", considered to be the definitive John Martyn album...

On Saturday night, I went to the 50th birthday performance of Japanese experimental music star, Otomo Yoshihde, who played half an hour of treated piano (which basically sounded like modulated metallic feedback) and then was joined by a group of 7 other guitarists, percussionists and and electronic musicians, including the brilliant Jim O'Rourke, for over an hour of ambient / free jazz / noise...

Just downloaded Minimum-Maximum a double live CDs worth of live tracks (if live can really be applied to Kraftwerk) from a tour in 2005 and it's blinding.

Frankie Goes To Hollywood's "War", with Chris Barrie's great Ronald Reagan monologue.

Quote
Man has a sense for the discovery of beauty. How rich is the world for
one who makes use of this discovery. Beauty must have power over man.

After the end of the war, I wanted to devote myself to my thoughts for five to ten years, and to writing them down.

Wars come and go.  What remains are only the values of culture.

Then of course there is revolutionary love.  Love of comrades fighting for the people, and love of people. Not an abstract people but people one meets and works with.  When Che Guevara talked of love being at the center of revolutionary endeavour, he meant both. For people like Che, or George Jackson, or Malcolm X, love was the prime mover of their struggle, and love cost them their lives.

Love, coupled with a man's pride.

Love, coupled with a man's pride.

It's all bollocks, but it's poetry.

Koder på snor by Valravn.  Their 2nd album just released.  A truly excellent follow up to their eponymously titled first effort.

If you're after a bit of Danish/Faeroese/Swiss-Ecuadorian electro folk punk then this is the album for you.

Electronic beats, hot hurdy gurdy action and a singer that sounds like Bjork.  This is an album that sings from dark volcanic places of ancient people. A bit like Noggin the Nog.  A long time ago in a land far, far away where the dark cliffs meet the sea...

Ozric Tentacles, "Pungent Effulgent"
Followed by Bruckner's 3rd and 8th back to back.
I have VERY wide tastes....

For those wgo don't know Bruckner, I also love Mahler. Mahler is a Gaudi Cathedral, set amid the Austrian Alps. Rich, deep, wonderfully human music, that reaches down inside you and tears at your soul.
 Bruckner is Ulm Cathedral, seen from the inside; soaring stone, hung with WWI battle flags, austere, solidly-built soundscapes, and just as human in a different way.

The new Megadeth album 'End Game'.  I like it lots, sort of a return to their late 80's /early 90's sound which is no bad thing. Brill new lead guitarist too, chap called Chris Broderick who adds a much needed counter to Dave Mustaine's riffing, missing since Marty Friedman left the band a few years ago.

Talking of prog, some of you may remember my rant about Rush here... having moved to Canada, I have discovered that saying anything bad about Rush is rather like attacking Jesus. Clearly there are many virtues to Canada, but musical taste is not among them: I give you also Celine Dion, Shania Twain, Bryan Adams, Avril Lavigne, Nickelback... the list goes on.  ;)

Some stuff I bought off iTunes last night after being reminded of it on the radio over the last week.

Gladys Knight and The Pips - Midnight Train to Georgia

Held up as one of teh best examples of teh art of backing singing ever on a Radio 4 program the othjer day about backing singing and you know I think they were right.

Gladys Knight and The Pips - The Look of Love

Just because I love this song.

Laura Nyo - Emmie
Laura Nyo - December's Boudouir

I had never heard of her until Barry Manilow picked Emmie for one of his desert Island disks.

Trijntje Oosterhuis - The Look of Love

Dutch pop / jazz singer. Found this as a link from the Gladys Knight version of this song. Lovely smoky voice. I still think my favourite version is Dianna Krall's version from "One Night in Paris" which incidentally is one of the best recorded live albums I have ever heard.

I am surprised to say that even I like what I have heard of Florence and the Machine. David Byrne has been playing them a lot on his iTunes playlist...

But what I have been listening to today are two local bands from the area of Ontario where I live - one called The Gertrudes, who should be massive - wonderful, joyful music somewhere between Sufjan Stevens and The Fleet Foxes - and The Abrams Brothers, who are just the most awsome fiddle-driven folk, and they are about 15 and 17. Crazy.

Their album 1000 Years of Trouble is still one of my all time faves. The lyrics are even still relevant today (what with financial meltdown & US invading places)

Dhafer Youssef  Electric Sufi.  A beautiful recording.
And Doug Wimbish is on it too.  I must get it... thanks!

The Youssef album is my favourite of his.  Best listened to on a decent system on a winters night with the curtains drawn and a whisky in your hand.

The Doors' "Orange County Suite".

A drunken lament for Pamela Courson by Jim Morrison which was overdubbed with instrumentation by the surviving Doors after he carked it.

Quote
Now her father has passed over
and her sister is a star
and her mother smokes diamonds
and she sleeps out in the car
Yeah, but she remembers Chicago
The musicians and guitars
and grass by the lake
and people who laughed
and made her poor heart ache

I don't think "grass" refers to a municipal lawn.

Steve Hackett's Spectral Mornings from 1979.  Some dross on it, to be sure - Hackett always had a weakness for naff "comedy" songs, but the title track and Everyday still pack some punch and Clocks has always cried out to be a soundtrack. 

A strong reminder that it was his departure rather than Peter Gabriel's that marked the artistic death knell for Genesis.

Foreigner - Can't Slow Down

Got most of the  Foreigner CD's in my collection. This latest one is minus original vocalist  Lou Gramm (replaced by the just as good  Kelly Hansen). A rather good CD IMO, a good mix of killer melodic rock tracks and trademark ballads.  Not as good as Foreigner 4 but recommended 8)

Anton Webern, 6 Stücke für Orchester op. 6

Difficult and muscular stuff. Webern loved the Alps, and his music often seems to reflect the small and strange thoughts you might have on a long and lonely climb.

For me, when I am sweating, and worrying, sometimes I look down, and the sight of small alpine plants, the tiny flowers, or the crystals in the rocks, then Webern's intense music comes into my mind.

Complete with his folk song  "Hollow Point". Following the folk tradition of recording history of the little man against the state by telling the tail of a fatal journey that only got as far as Stockwell tube.



I first heard the song live, without introduction, last year. You could hear the intakes of breath in the audience as each person realised what the song was about.

Karen Elson ~ The Ghost Who Walks

That's Mrs Jack White to you and me. As the reviews said "Supermodel marries rock star and records album is a formula unlikely to work but here it does". It's great stuff, rootsy Americana with a country twinge but always a sinister Nick Cave-esque undertone.

Elephant9 - Walk the Nile

Norwegian jazz/prog trio. Keyboards (mostly Hammond), bass and drums. Wonderful stuff.

From a review on the Beeb:
Quote
It may only contain six tracks, but there’s no shortage of imagination on show throughout this second album from Norwegian show-stoppers Elephant9, favourites on the European jazz scene and purveyors of some of the most dazzling, dizzying instrumental music this side of a dance-world sub-genre yet to pass.

That said, this trio – Ståle Storløkken, Nikolai Hængsle Eilertsen and Torstein Lofthus – might well be key players in whatever form any future dance designs may take, such is their delirious abandonment here, their delivery of propulsive percussion and thick organ guaranteed to set toes tapping. Truly, it’s a set that engages from the off and relents only briefly, during the opening minutes of the title-track, resulting in the sort of sensory onslaught usually reserved for the mightiest of metal acts, or the most affecting of post-rockers. Indeed, there are elements to Elephant9’s sound that echo the slow-shifting soundscapes of the post-rock elite; yet the package here is more vibrant of execution, a consistently high tempo demanding reaction where could-be peer groups would noodle their audience into a catatonic state.

Another excellent Emusic find!

Wilco, Wolf Parade, The Low Anthem, the Wilderness of Manitoba, Lantern and the Lake, Monotonix, The Mountain Goats, The Felice Brothers...

I'm familiar with Wilco and The Low Anthem, are any of the others in a similar vein? Any album recommendations?

The Felice Brothers aren't a million miles away from Wilco, they play boozy Americana (much as I hate that term, but you get what I mean), with a hard lyrical edge and loads of down-to-earth New York attitude.  The LP The Felice Brothers is a good place to start.  Great live band, too.

Wilderness of Manitoba: quite delicate, folksy stuff, with lovely harmonies and excellent songs.  I think they've only released one LP, the name of which escapes me.  But it's gorgeous.

Wolf Parade play really anthemic pop (if that isn;t a dirt word these days): they're probably going to be massive before long.  Expo 86 is a damn good LP.

The Mountain Goats are one of my favourite bands.  You really need everything ;D  But try Tallahassee or We Shall All Be Healed or, for something a bit earlier, Zopilote Machine (if you can find it).  A lot of the earlier albums are just John Darnielle on his own, with some very basic recording equipment, whereas his more recent stuff is much more polished.  I'm less keen on the more recent stuff for that reason, but those three LPs show off both aspects - the full band sound and the wonderful songs he pens.  His songs can sound much the same, but I think that's cos he's managed to create quite a unique sound, his voice is quite striking, and his lyrics tend to have a particular crescendo-ing rhythm to them.  I'm surprised you've managed to miss them.

The other two, I'm just learning to love myself.  Monotonix certainly aren't like Wilco or the Low Anthem - they're a fucked-up Israeli punk band who only left Israel after their raucous, destructive live performances earned them bans from all the venues there.  And Lantern on the Lake haven't released an LP yet.

I've recently bought a lot of music when I should really be saving my cash :-[ :D

This morning was Gardiner's Santiago a cappella - just the thing for a Sunday morning.

I've know changed to the Jordi Savall and the Hesperion XXI recording of Dimitrie Cantemir's Kitabu 'İlmi'l-Musiki 'ala Vechi'l-Hurufat or "The Book of the Science of Music".  A fantastic recording of 17th C. Ottoman court music, which includes music from the Sephardic and Armenian traditions.

DJ Random on my iPod is supposed to select tracks at random which have a play count of zero.  What he appears to be doing is playing semi-random stuff starting with the most recently added and working backwards in time.  The first morning here I got three hours of Seasick Steve.  Yesterday afternoon was four hours of solid Hawkwind.  And, Mr Random, if you're going to play an entire concept album, it's better start with the first track and got through to the last.

Rather than the other way round ???

Maria Yudina (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nb61-isWowA&feature=related)

Quote from: wiki
Yudina has the distinction of being Joseph Stalin's favorite pianist. One night, Stalin heard a performance of Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 23 on the radio performed by Yudina and asked for a copy. It was a live broadcast so officials woke up Yudina, drove her to a recording studio where a small orchestra had quickly been assembled, and made her record the concerto in the middle of the night, a single copy was pressed from the matrix and then presented to Stalin (the matrix has survived and the recording has been available on CD). It is said that he broke out in tears after hearing only the first notes of Yudina's playing. Despite the recognition from Stalin the pianist remained an uncompromising critic of the Stalinist regime with unprecedented impunity. She was awarded the Stalin Prize and donated its monetary portion to the Orthodox Church for "perpetual prayers for Stalin's sins". She died in Moscow in 1970.

Bloody hell!  :o

I'm transferring CDs to my computer (I've only had it three years) - and the latest find from the depths of the attic is Free Peace Sweet by Dodgy. 

OK, it has an unbelievably awful pun for a title, they're obviously taking themselves a bit too seriously in some of the lyrics and themes of the album, and overall it's dated, cheesy, generic indie with added pomposity, but there are still a couple of songs which are excellent, and the album has a lovely warmth about it - excellent harmonies and chiming guitars fighting with the drums for a bit of space in the mix.

I'm hoping to find Dodgy's Homegrown in the heap, which I remember being a much better album.

And change again. Proof you don't need a fancy video to sell a song. Just a good tune (borrowed from Listz) and a genius lyrics and a performer who can make you believe he means them.

Jacques Brel - Ne me quitte pas (don't leave me) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=za_6A0XnMyw) with subtitles. It's completely different and a lot darker than the English version (If you go away) that people think is a direct translation.

Brel was a genius.

The best electronica album I've heard in ages:

Senking -  Pong  (http://www.boomkat.com/artist.cfm?a=4718)  8)

Very atmospheric, a bit like Murcof's Martes meets slowed down dubstep. And a tribute to the classic video game of the same name to boot.  :thumbsup:

Sounds fantastic on headphones.

Video for  V8  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZToyrr4ckEg), probably my fave track off the album.

WARNING: video contains violent images, with lots of spurting blood, towards the end (from kung-fu/horror/Python film samples), although one might argue they're 'just flesh wounds'...

The knife-fetishists out there might like to play along to the images accompanying the drum beat  :)

The Age of Adz, by Sufjan Stevens. Not sure what I think of this yet. Seems a bit lacking in something, which he's tried to cover with a lot of retro electronica, which makes a some it sound like Yellow Magic Orchestra (and not necessarily in a good way).

Plus Wake Up! by The Roots and John Legend. Love sixties and seventies black protest music, love The Roots, never thought much of John Legend - but this is really quite good.

But what I have been listening to today are two local bands from the area of Ontario where I live - one called The Gertrudes, who should be massive - wonderful, joyful music somewhere between Sufjan Stevens and The Fleet Foxes - and The Abrams Brothers, who are just the most awsome fiddle-driven folk, and they are about 15 and 17. Crazy.

Will have to check out The Gertrudes as I like the other bands you mention.
 

Finally managed to track them down! Toronto's HMVs didn't stock them but managed to buy online

Giving them a first listen now, as you say great band terrible name

Beethoven's 5th Piano Concerto ("Emperor"), 3rd movement.  There's a little bit at about 5 minutes* which is quite reminiscent of the mad fast bit out of "Für Elise".

*Karajan conducting, so probably at 4 minutes on most other recordings  ;)

Wow, I've never been considered to be a music guru before. Most family/friends think my musical taste is just weird... ;D

Actually - EITS are one band that's pretty much passed me by. I have a downloaded copy of 'All Of A Sudden I Miss Everyone' but it seems to have got lost in deluge of other stuff I got at the same time. Will have to add it to the mp3 & listen at work. And add 'Those Who Tell...' to my save for later list on eMusic too.

Your tastes seem very wise to me.  I haven't heard of half the bands you mention ;D

Of this lot, I know 65daysofstatic - I know their first album best, and they're very good, but it's much meatier than EiTS.

ETA: Disc 1 seems to be in a similar vein (especially Grover) - but Disc 2 ain't. At all. But The Surf Creatures is a cracking name for a band.

Mike Oldfield - To Be Free from the album "Tr3s Lunas".

Quite thought provoking lyrics
Quote
And if I had a wish, my wish would be...

To be free
To be
wild
And to be
Just like a child
And if I get lost
I really don't
mind
Cos I'm me
Doing just fine

J. S. Bach - R3's "This Week's Composer" but they are concentrating only on the 6 years he spent at Anhalt-Köthen (1717-23). It was during this period that he was at his most free to do his own thing, since he had fewer obligations to the church. Lots of his best secular orchestral music was composed while he was at Anhalt-Köthen.

Beethoven's 9th while Helen is asleep on the sofa.
I'll check in a minute to see that she isn't dribbling  ;)

Earlier, the lucky girl got to listen to "Christmas Wrapping", all of "Lexicon of Love" (see my other postings........), "Beauty Stab", most of "Last Night of the Proms", "Lt. Kije" (Prokofiev), "Gayaneh" (Khachaturian) then "Blue Lines", "Better Things", "Mezzanine" (all Massive Attack) and "Cure For Pain" (Morphine).

Top day  :thumbsup:

I finally got around to moving the RH speaker (they're VERY heavy) across to the left about 30cm.
It's improved the imaging tremendously and the bass is much fuller because the spikes contact the floor better.

She's not dribbling  :)
Question is, when do I wake her up and tell her it's bed-time ?

"What you see is what you get
You've made your bed, you better lie in it
You choose your leaders and place your trust

You'll see kidney machines replaced by rockets and guns
And the public wants what the public gets
But I don't get what this society wants"

Ironically enough, I was listening to that on my iPod on the bus home.
Listening to it now - got my favourite track ('Warakurna') belting out at obscene volume whilst I fill in bloody insurance accident report forms. I suppose on a rig like yours, Peter Garrett will sound more like a strangled cat than he usually does :)

EDIT: Might still have my original (1986) vinyl copy of "Diesel and Dust" kicking around somewhere. Nowt to play it on, though ....

EDIT 2: Just occurred to me that "Beds Are Burning" is one of the first songs I learned to play on the bass. Not that it's difficult - the bassline to "Bullroarer" is surprisingly complex, however.

I've adopted Diesel and Dust as the 'theme album' of my planned ride across Western Australia in a couple of years time - kind of apt, since I'll be visiting some of the places mentioned on the album (including the Gunbarrel Highway1 and Warakurna/Giles - big, fat sand tyres FTW!)

I'd love to have my Surly frame redone in an aboriginal stylee, but sadly it would be considered offensive by some, and not just because it'd be ridden by a pasty Pom :)

Back on topic, I've got the iPod Genius feature picking some choons for me as I type ...

1 - Riding on sand is hard. Training for desert riding in the UK is even harder2 - several trips to hot and dusty places are planned between now and the Oz trip. If anyone knows how I can get copies of Len Beadell's books without having to sell a kidney, then please let me know
2 - Towing a trailer with a pair of water carriers on will be even more interesting.

It's on my Amazon wishlist, along with several other items of Australia-related reading material. Need to get my cashflow sorted out first though.

I'm not going for a circumnavigation (sadly) but more of a 'ride from the edge to the middle then turn right and keep going until you get wet feet' (ie. Perth to Alice Springs to either Adelaide or Melbourne, via lots of sandy bits)

I read "Discovery Road" before Christmas and it was largely the Aussie section which resulted in the book being donated to the British Heart Foundation - if they'd concentrated more on writing about the country and the people instead of bickering amongst themselves then it would have been good.

Got to agree - I've tried for ages to replicate that tone but never managed to succeed (ditto for Simon Gallup's bass tone on the Disintegration-era Cure albums)

Mind you, you're not likely to Burnel his bass sounds like crap, are you? :)

I remain unconvinced of any Floyd album after "The Wall", and that was patchy.

There were only two albums after The Wall: Momentary Lapse Of Reason and The Division Bell both of which were very good (The Final Cut although containing some superb tracks, is really just leftovers from The Wall). What a lot of people (and Waters himself) fail to understand is that Waters was not Pink Floyd.

No surprise that Roger Waters' solo albums (Radio K.A.O.S, Amused to Death, The Pros and Cons of Hitchiking) all have Echoes [sic] of The Final Cut, and to a lesser degree - The Wall, in them.

That said, being somewhat prone to angst and gittishness myself, I quite like his angsty and gittish stylee.

The final track of DSoM8 does catch you by surprise :) Apparently it was the 'encore' track rather than being part of the main set - definitely not the sort of stuff Herr Schulze is best known for ;)

As for the Spyra set, I guess you really had to be there - despite there not being many people there (40 tops, which was quite disappointing) there was a really good vibe which matched the music perfectly.

As for me, I'm listening to the soundboard recordings from the 2009 Hampshire Jam - absolutely sequencer-tastic (and it helps that I was actually there too)  :thumbsup:

Adele - 19

I love most of the tracks, but can only listen to her in small doses.  She sounds like she's shouting after a while.

However, this feels like a 'just been dumped' set of songs, so the shouting may be entirely appropriate.

I think 'Don't You Remember' is just a gorgeous country song.

"I know I have a fickle heart
And a bitterness
And a wandering eye
And a heaviness in my head ..."

Lovely.

King of Limbs (bit late, but I was away for a long weekend).

Give Up The Ghost is the stand-out track for me on first listen.

KT Tunstall, Tiger Suit.  I like it.

We went to see her at the O2 Academy in Leeds at the weekend.  She is (and bear in mind who is saying this) absolutely tiny.  And extremely engaging and funny.  

ETA - and anyway, she will always have a special place in this household because when the SmallestCub was a small and grizzly baby the one thing that would always calm him down was KT at loud volume.

Lots of different versions of The Great Gig In The Sky - by Pink Floyd and cover bands - and realising what an amazing achievement Clare Torry's vocal was for two takes (I think only the first was used).  Only Sam Brown comes close, and some of the singers used by Floyd themselves have been a bit rubbish.  At one time, they used three singers, which in itself is testament to Torry.

Paul Oakenfold's Goa Mix - pyschedelic trance, film scores and dialogue from Blade Runner.

First broadcast on Radio 1 in 1994, licencing issues meant that it took until last year before it was released on CD, albeit in a slightly updated form, with some film score tracks re-recorded. Back in the day it was a revelation.

It still sounds great today...  8)

Notable by the omission of the most popular B-Side they did (as voted by the TV forum members) "Hard To Feel".  It does however contain "What shall we do with the drunken sailor", "You really got a hold on me", "This drinking will kill me", "Glad all over" and my favourite "Too Stoned To Dance"...

Gone and left me'...

And especially Helter Skelter.  I love the basic garage band effect.

It is charming, in a way.  I still like listening to albums as albums, and that certainly feels like the proper way to listen to it - I've just picked out the tracks which I thought worked in isolation.

I'll give it a few more listens, but I probably came to it too late.  It must have made more sense (or failed to make sense in a more interesting way) in 1968.

This. Again. For on-the-bike motivation, Animal Arithmetic has to be The Choon of the album, but the lyrics are truly bizarre. However, the first verse1 does contain the line "riding bikes, making out" - so that's OK by me.

Dear Messers. Yorke, Greenwood, Greenwood, O’Brien and Selway

I write as I have recently purchased your most recent disc: “Kings of Limbs” on the misapprehension that the said disc would contain “music.” Sadly, after a couple of listens, I have found no evidence of such. Indeed, to describe the wailing and disorganised sounds the 5 inch piece of plastic now sitting on my CD rack waiting a thick layer of dust to form contains as such would surely result in a knock on the door by the good burgers of Oxford Trading Standards.

This therefore is a request that you cease and desist from making such crap. May I remind you that you have not made a good album since The Bends some 16 years ago. Whilst it is accepted that bands can play on previous triumphs for a period of time and that an experimental period is acceptable, its now time to stop this nonsense and get back to making proper music.

Failure to do so will result in me ignoring any future recordings you may release.

Yours sincerely

Miserable of Stafford.

Continuing my recent foray into spotify and down memory lane, Talking to the Taxman about Poetry.  The Cubs seem to quite like it.  I'm trying to remember if there's any inappropriate for smalls tracks on there, since I haven't heard it for the best part of 20 years....

And now they want to listen to the first song that SmallestCub ever listened to.  Which I think was Macy Gray, although I'm not sure which track.  So I shall look for that.

Last night, I was feeling pretty grumpy, partly because of a selfish fuckwit I am having to deal with at work, partly because of the terribly dangerous left hook a few hundred metres from home, and partly because the Roadsafe website was playing up, so I played Madness.  Lots of it, including three different versions of One Step Beyond (in a row - sorry Butterfly! :( ).

It improved things.

A CD I bought from a boot sale in France a couple of weeks ago and haven't got round to playing yet.  It's the best of the six I paid €5 for

L'arbre de Mai, by a group called Allégorie - songs and dances from the time of Dufay - good fun, but (probably) not at all historically accurate - they've only thrown about a quarter of Maximillians cart at it.

Still haven't properly listened to last months eMusic downloads and yesterday was renewal time already!
Warp Records have u/l a lot of e.p.s from their back catalogue so I've taken advantage.

So...this month I are be mostly listening to:

Aphex Twin - Girl/Boy & On
Autechre - Anti, Anvil Vapre, Envane
Disjecta - Looking For Snags
GAK - Gak
Polygon Window - Quoth
Seefeel - Starethrough

Non-Warp stuff:
Belbury Poly - Farmer's Angle
Kode9 & The Spaceape - Black Sun - really looking forward to hearing this
Peaking Lights - Imaginary Falcons
Burial - Street Halo


Also bought a couple of recent Muslimgauze releases: Beirut Transfer & Lazhareem Ul Leper making use of an HMV discount code - showing that HMV aren't completely useless/doomed!

The Schneider TM one is a cover of the Smiths tune.  The Raymond Scott track sounds like an advert from a Philip K Dick novel.  Obv. the Dr Who theme is a classic.  If you like this sort of thing, this is the sort of thing you'll like.

Foo Fighters - In Your Honour

One of their lesser known albums, and one which they only played 2 songs off on Sunday (Cold Day In The Sun and Best Of You), would have like to see them play Virginia Moon, but then again they do have 7 albums worth of material (8 CDs, as "In Your Honour" is a double), so it must have been hard for them to choose.

That has just finished now, I think I will line up "Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace" then move onto The Go! Team

John,  I'm pretty sure I've got the Lightning Hopkins album!  Is it mostly white, with a black and white of LH mostly to the left and maybe a bit of navy blue somewhere?  (All my vinyl's in store at the moment.  If it is that one, it's amazing how they keep up with LH because he keeps on putting in a half-bar here and taking one out there!  Great stuff!

Good indication Peter on old Vinyl original albums is what they call 'flip back sleeve' Maybe pre 1970. I think after the 60's 'flip back sleeves' became redundant. If the Lightnin Hopkins original album/compilation was a flip back , I don't know ?

Here is a good example of a flip back sleeve from Bob Dylans: Freewheelins rear sleeve.

Notice how the front sleeve has flipped back bonding the rear card sleeve

Well, 20+ years ago I had Greetings From on tape.  On the other side was More Love Songs by Loudon Wainwright III, if memory serves correctly.  Present from a school friend.

Then just shy of 20 years ago my then boyfriend (an Irish bloke I met in France and split up with in Africa) gave me a tape with Christy Moore on one side (can't remember the album but it had Ride On on it) and Timbuk 3's Eden Alley on the other.

So I didn't exactly buy it.

And then I recently discovered spotify on the ipod and have been happily reminiscing :)

Gorky's Zygotic Mynci live at Clwb Ifor Bach, 2000.  I taped it off the radio and just found the tape in a box - so I'm converting it to MP3.  It's as enchanting as I remember.

Had the good fortune and connections to get guest tickets for WOMAD last weekend and managed to blag my way onstage with Booker T Jones.

Proper R 'n' B, not that stuff that's nicked the name.

Evidence that I speak the truth here. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=743sMXx6BhY)

Even better, while I was wallowing in nostalgia (yes, I am an old fart), I discovered that the latest episode (http://www.livefromdarylshouse.com/currentep.html) of the consistently wonderful 'Live from Dary'ls House' featured the man himself.

Hammond B-3 heaven.
