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.

Disco, you can add Black Flag to your list and maybe Suicidal Tendencies too I reckon.

Oi DiscoStew, maybe you should give us all some pointers on the 'real' disco. Might be more your area of expertise going by your 'punk' list. I assume you lived in that era too, huh? A bit of overlap?

I didn't venture to Malvern much. More of a Balwyn calling type of dude.

I was on the road a few days ago, and pulled out some old gems from my old life: Adam Said Galore, an incredible live band from Perth. Got to see 'em a few times, jeez they were fantastic.

Does it seem strange to you?
The confetti, the balloons, the mile-wide grins?
The victory dance to welcome in the heir to a state of disrepair?
'Cause it sure seems strange to me.
They're acting like they won the lottery.
But shouldn't they feel terror at the task that lies ahead?

I only tuned in 1/2 way through that Nick Cave docco. I was blown away but what a prodigious writer the guy is. I don't love all his music. (Not since Junkyard) But puts on a great live show.

^^^ However I recall hearing Ian Mackaye say something along the lines of "If you say something is dead you're taking ownership of a whole culture and that just isn't right."

Think it may have been from 'American Hardcore' but I couldn't find the grab anywhere. I did, however, find this very cool interview with Ian from a recent issue of Huck. Wonderful stuff, worth a read.
