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.

Maybe a bit mainstream for the punters on here. I love this song though. Showing my softer side.

Perhaps my least favourite song from that album and I was still tempted to put it up here a few days ago myself. Such is the quality of the album.

Perhaps my favourite album of all time?

"Perhaps my favourite album of all time?"
For me - that's too hard to call.
But far and away best gig I've ever been to - Oils at the Lyric in Geelong around late 90's.

The Oils goat island concert for anyone who has never seen it, it has been on ABC tv a few times.

Always find it interesting to hear what types of music people are into, here is a Jim Moginie article about seeing Kraftwerk in1981 in Melbourne.

Like everyone who saw them he was impressed by the quality of the sound.
I saw them in Sydney and one thing I noticed waiting outside prior to the gig, was the number of musos I saw, Dave Mason from the Reels, the lead singer of the band Pel Mel, the bass player for the band Misex not wearing any shoes as he always did, just to name a few.
Here are 2 other Kraftwerk reviews

DSDS. I remember catching the Section 5 down to Bondi from my mates sesti terrace rental in Surry Hills when I was a grom surf bum in the 80's.
The bus stopped, the door opened and I thought no way this driver was going to let the three barefoot bums on with their boards. But he waved us on.
It was a hot humid day [NE of course]. We squeezed our way down the aisle and I remember looking back and seeing a Suit with wax all over the back of his suit from my board.
Still cracks me up when I think about it today.
I was also stoked to be playing my part in the song.

“Punk” music with a deliberately conservative message on how to live your life within the boundaries of polite society is about as appealing and exciting as Christian Rock. To be frank, the genres are basically interchangeable.

The music may be driving and decent, though usually heavily derivative , but any genuine like-ability is neutralised by the preachy undertones. Punk is rebellious. That’s the whole point. If you’re getting rave reviews in The Guardian you’re about as antiestablishment as Diet Pepsi.

wait a minute...if punk is about rebellion. then the punk thing to do is rebel against be rebellious, right? that's why rave was the inheritor of punk, not latter bands playing punk-style music.

Yep. That’s why any music post the 80s which claims to be punk is lying. There’s been plenty of rebellious music since True Punk but none of it is punk music.

When you’ve got pretenders whining about Brexit and calling themselves punk, as is the case above, it’s nothing if not funny.
I hear the initial rave scene was pretty wild.

So after a very funny Scomo meme, I asked the kids about the origin (as it belongs to them and their gen and I am Old) - and I just can't get it out of my head or out of my eyes. Love it. Got a real 'Fin de siècle' feel to the track.

So here's an edit of the tune to soothe the brain, and after, some undiluted visual friskiness of the memes to melt it at the same time:

Yep it's different. DSDS above talking about punk being rebellious - well one observation I have is that kids 2010-20 made very different music their own in many fragmentations, and expressed it far more quietly. An electronic underground if you will, as we had the underground scene through 80's/90s. I will spare linking you an hour of Cat LoFi.

Edit: last link above, the dude being tasered at 7:05 lol
