Alright, time for some discussion on what yr all listening too. My iTunes inventory is getting a little stale so I'm up for some inspiration.

Currently loving The Drones' album "Havilah".. incredible songwriting and some of the best recorded guitars and drum I've heard in a long time. I'm a little late to the party with this album but it's on high rotation at the moment and will probably stay there a while. I've seen these guys live once (Fowlers, Adelaide) and fortunately they're incredible on stage too. Can't wait to see them again.

I gave Swervedriver a thorough blasting over the weekend: 'Raise', 'Mezcal Head', the 'Never Lose That Feeling' EP and then '99th Dream'. No-one quite does wall-of-noise like these guys.

Thank fuck.

A bit nippy and a bit, erm, volcanic but. Though plenty of swell and uncrowded. Swings n roundabouts.

The modern age has given us many things.... Mainly consumables.... But it has also taken away many things... Mainly things you cannot "purchase"....... The song below made me think of this when i heard it today on regional radio...... It took me back to a time when we "missed" people.... The "telegram" lyric sparked the thought...... Today, everyone dear to the heart is in your hand, or pocket.... They may be in London, or Athens, New York.... But a simple press of a few buttons and presto.... Instant contact... That ancient feeling of "pining" averted.... Is this a good thing? That's debatable..... But being old, i can distinctly remember the emotion of missing someone to the point of when the heart becomes heavy... I can remember looking forward to Saturday, then sitting up at 2am to phone England, on a crackly line..... It cost a fortune..... But for 5, maybe 10 minutes, it was pure bliss..... And everyone had someone they were missing at the time...... It sort of opened people up.... A shared longing.... You'd even strike up a conversation with a stranger at a bus stop......
Perhaps the lack of empathy in modern society is the fact that we do not pine for loved ones anymore, unless they die..... "sms recieved"... lol..... wbu..... pmsl..... wtf..... cya.... xox...... Instant connect.... click "like"..... winky poke tongue emoticon...... Deep thoughts averted....... Cheers....

Probably better without the video as it's so nineties I was expecting Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar to appear at any moment, but it's always makes me laugh to think of the Seattle crew rocking out in boardies.

Around the same time the above was happening, so was this. I had a dream once that this accompanied some ultra-slow motion footage of barrels or skate-park lines. Yes, I had a dream.

I think I was on Mogadon. Sweet, sweet Mogadon.

RIP Alan Vega

Surprised to find out he was 78! Meaning he was a middle-aged 39 when Suicide's self titled album came out.

Equally surprised to find out his real name was Boruch Alan Bermowitz.
