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.

Saw these guys at the Arthouse in Melbourne in 2009 a week before I got married I have long been a fan but fell out of touch and hadn’t been listening to spermbirds for a long time they were so ducking good there is footage on YouTube of the gig and I can just make out my arm punching the air to something to prove my favourite song great awesome love experience I have always said if I had the money and time I would shoot off to wherever they were playing to experience that feeling again great fucking band

This 1967 Track by Canadian Band 'The Media' is more than 20 years ahead of it's time.
Anomalies
*Unusual for Canadian band to have Modern Sound (Big But!) They hit pay dirt when they do!
Example : 1966 Les Talismans - L'Interplanetaire (Sound was not equally matched until - 2006 Muse!)
*Unusual to Label Double A Side...meaning this was likely a polished up experimental track.
*Unusual to have Drummer 'Rick Buckthorpe' as Lead Singer to drive the tune...Man! Did that pay off!
*Unusual to have so many amps to afford drummer a mike & quality amp! Good for them! Wow!
*Unusual - Young Drummer / Band look ultra New Wave ... maybe why song sounds & keeps modern!
*Unusual futuristic unit & sound is impossibly fast tracking the Post New Wave era 20 years too soon!

Single is worth $3,300 > $5,300 (2013)...tbb reckons that sounds too cheap for this ultra rare high quality track!
http://citizenfreak.com/titles/317371-media-girl-i-want-you-b-w-endless-...
http://www.45cat.com/record/m4ca

tbb can't find an equivalent modern composition until 1991 ... Eno / U2 ~ Mysterious Ways
Wotz weirder...'67 track sounds more modern each year as Mysterious Ways dates more each year!
tbb ever argues that raw true sound keeps fresh (vs) outdated over produced tracks sound daggy.
Just love the fact how these guys downplay their track...
Never knowing that one day it 'd be worth more than they could've ever dreamed possible.
Pity the obscure band can't afford to listen to their own record! Problem every band would luv to have!

Bonus : Hang about for the basket of delights mid track...Oh man, is that trip worth a million bucks!

1967 The Media ~ Endless Dream

1991 - U2 ~ (Achtung Baby) Mysterious Ways

with a username of "vordus" that post should come as no surprise!

not bad guitar work. but those constant snare rolls distract from the vibe a bit. sounds like the energiser bunny on a toy drum kit.

I think I confused the dilly sisters with go-go dancer girl that delivers the messages from the sour grapes bunch.

I had a Manowar song lined up to post for the transport theme, but the theme ended before I could slip it in there. Now I've just come across this... though it's more a tribute & piss take rather than a cover:

Extra Extra. In news today Vince Vance and his cohort waited 30 years to sue Mariah and hers. Wants a 20 million share of the takings. I reckon Pee Wee Herman might have a claim on it too.

You can chuckle at Jack Robinson’s approach to competition if you like, doubt the veracity of his scores and generally cast a pall over the way he’s thinking outside the box in pursuit of success.

But you can’t argue with his obvious personal turnaround as a man coming to grips with his power over his own destiny. Robbo is taking the bull by the horns and taking control. He might not be responsible for the scores handed down by the judges but he’s taking responsibility for everything else.

Robbo has the EYE
