Favourite bands past and present
It really does. Jobseeker is still my fav track of theirs, but have been listening to Dirty Rat, Mork and Mindy, and UK Grim on repeat all week at work. One of the things that strikes me is how it is almost unimaginable that a band in Australia would ever be so pointed and aggressive about Australian politics, government and society and that mainstream media would give them a platform. Like can you imagine someone singing about the pointless bureaucratic hellhole of Centrelink on The Project?
Lovin the Sleaford Mods. Check out this Ren clip, awesome song and performance, lots to think about. There's implications with the adulation he's getting from the mental health community, and the irony in the lyrics, should he become popular.. the slightly cringey monologue at the end...
His busking clips, before he got ill are a fun internet dig. Looks to have been a talented, happy, middle class kid...
Not into grandstanding pollies, or belligerent Scots (I am one), but how compelling is Mhairi as a speaker? And how good are the Mods for going 'well she's said it all' Haha, love it.. What's Williamson's grab? A self-aware jab at a sample song?
"Young and dumb, truth and justice, fantasy..."
Nice seeds, have a ball, hand out some GLT fliers.. post a report.
blackers: Mudhoney was great, old guys doing a thing really well. Their nonchalant charisma reminded me of last year's Pixies tour, or Hoodoo Gurus' casual playing on a small stage surrounded by Sound Relief hype in Sydney 2009: smart casual dress, tight playing, great vocal energy, no physical symptoms of poor life choices, just doing what they do with their mates to an appreciative mixed-crowd:
bearded 50+ year olds who saw them in 1990 standing & smiling in their Mudhoney and Tad t-shirts and a frenetic mosh pit of 30 year-olds singing along with songs as old as they are. Even heard some 20-year-olds at the bar fact-splaining the olden-days of sub-pop-seattle-grunge to each other in challenging vocal-fry tones over the noise which cracked me up..
Cheers mate, sounds like it was fun. Will have to catch them next time.
Enjoy Seeds, give us a review
@ seeds ... a Fauves favourite. Lucky enough to see them in Melb back in the day..
Geez...gonna have to rip out the seats for Ultimate swellnet Fauves Gig Rig.
If ya need a spare wheel...tbb can spin a few Fauves tunes...already on board!
What dya know? I thought they were all done, but they're playing near(ish) me soon. 25th anniversary of their lazy highways album. (Geez I'm old).
Unfortunately I don't think I'll make it, but it's good to know they're still having a crack.

get to theebine hotel seeds?
Great work Seeds! Boing Boing look unreal, gotta check 'em out sometime.
very generous share seeds, good stuff! Glad it blew out some cobwebs - assume yr lad got home ok?
Epic day/ night!
Getting ready for State of Origin!
ha, that croc one sounds like B52s meets Music Machine.. TROUBLE is a garage stonker (more Roobarb the dog fuzz)
the riff might sound familiar..
Basesix ~ Ramones dug Music Machine as does tbb since '80's Nuggets intro.
Can have a crack at yer rogue Hives riff...
Basesix ...B is for Brutus ~ Sounds like an MM Tribute...
Lobby Loyd - GOD tributes Link Ray - Jack The Ripper
Ed Kuepper - The way I made you feel tributes Quo - Sunny Celophane Skies
Just as here...often outed openly 15 years later...gotta be careful to intro not accuse as they're fans!
Can recall when Ed was outed much later he felt a loss of innocence...as if he was being accused!
If any ask them...Yeah! Coz their My idols...so what's yer problem...(An open unapologetic tribute!)
So yeah! Musos can get worked up over it...as it's their personal psychotic groove...(Sorry Dude!)
tbb has come across it with local / Oz bands...can't rush them if it's their story to tell!
1. Firstly notice the Hives are all in Exact same Black Shirts / Pants as Music Machine dress.
2. Note the Covering / Gloving of Power Fist ~ MM Logo
3. Now check the 2004 timing...
1st Jan 2004 Hives B is for Brutus rip is likely a 2004 MM Euro Commemorative Tribute!
Go as far to say it was likely a blatant pitch to score the dream 2004 MM Tour for immortality!
So Cal Garage Band Larksmen got the gig & later recorded with MM!
tbb keeps an open mind on such...If one shit hot band rips another...it's 100% Tribute to their Idols.
Considering it was the same year as Tour...fans of both would've noticed & saluted the gesture!
Thanks for sharing as tbb likes the Hives as well...Win! Win! Score a Double Music Machine gig!
Double Yellow Line > Crispiest rogue new wave Psych Slab.
Dark White > Goth Classic projects way beyond our tiny minds & time!
totally agree. TBB would also agree the best ugly-things/nuggets/pebbles are an attempt by devoted players to emulate their idols, and failing, in ripping style. Can't be Dee Dee/Tek/Kurt if you don't first like 50s doo-wop /Oysters/JohnPaul. Some good threads for me to pull there tbb, i'll go have a tug.
(Ed Sheeran's win was a win, eh?)
… somebody …said … B-52’s ;)
These mash ups you've been posting are next level JF!
(what thread was the one one on?)
(ah, found it, Land Down One-der on the Aus thread : )
… favourite bands past and present !
No comprende good sir? Never heard of Music Machine
Wasn't a knock seeds, just reminded me of some stuff.. I am really grateful for being introduced to the Boingas by this forum.. the spoken apology to Xavier at the end of their epic snotty-gremlin-wanker-chanting cracked me up
(good inside info re their name, not a winkipops then?)
Cheers mate. Check out the north korean thing JF posted on the 'weird' thread.. best shreds ever : o
(temptations sabbaths rocks..)
Boing Boing at the Theebine pub Saturday past...
Enjoyed reading this, Seeds. Cheers, mate.
Understand the anguish of the approaching crossroad: sensible bedtime this way, hungover like a bastard that way (after a hell night of laughs).
tbb tried a Basesix mash with Seeds...this is legit...
Planting the Seeds to stoke up a Garage Psych monster...
Backbeat : 60's bands had (eg:) "The Seeds Sound" or Their own Groove....
This being an Ultra Cool Example of a Band perfecting their Sound!
'No Escape' is the perfect Sound for a Seeds Hit Tune ... 'Pushin' too hard'
Keyboarder Pushed too hard & offered up same dose for 3 songs on first LP.
So yeah! It's a 60's thing to perfect yer own 'sound'!
Just play trax back to back for a Double Dose of The Seeds Sound.
Listen to how the Crowd go crazy over the insane original Seeds Sound.
Hot tune has some seriously good cover versions as it is...very much respected alt track!
Whole World goes even more crazy over the even more insane Seeds do over...drool!
To record one shit hot song is plenty enough but to then go next level on it...Man, that's Unreal!
Early 80's 12inch remixes revived this Sound thing in the booth..to resell hits as is the norm now!
killer! (all leggies and no groovin' makes tbb a dull boy... no fear of that here)
tributes? Kinky love-letter to the Davies lads at 1:10 in Pushin' Too Hard! Sweeeet...
new thread? ; )
cool.. here's Adelaide band Down The Line (feat Rick Springfield), that got told to change their name to Zoot (by Doc Neeson), dress in pink and move to Melbourne. wtf? Go a&r men!
Indo got me thinking the other day about this after mentioning he was into rap and hip hop as a young fella.
- what was the first song you liked?
- what bands were you into up to the age of 18.
- did your parents hate it? What did they listen to?
- when you started going out did your musical tastes change?
- what do you listen to now? Changed tastes? Still a diehard? Do you revisit your teen years?
