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.
Iggy Pop sings 'Surfin' Bird' to his cockatoo:
Sitting at the airport, now into my fourth flight reschedule, with my second fourteen-dollar beer (bloody hell.. Twenty eight bucks for two beers!) and thoroughly enjoying Badly Drawn Boy’s first album ‘The Hour Of Bewilderbeast’.
Sounds like you must be on Jetstar with four re-schedules.
Virgin actually. Hasn’t happened for a while.
Did a fair bit of driving earlier this week, and a swag of older albums kept me accompanied. Highlights were Goat (The Jesus Lizard), I Should Coco (Supergrass), ACME (Jon Spencer Blues Explosion), Gentlemen (Afghan Whigs) and Lets Stay Friend (Les Savy Fav).
Alcest - Escailles de lune. An acquired taste but you won’t look back. Latest album Kodama is ball tearing. Violet Cold as well is particularly incredible, try Anomie as an introduction
I can never decide what i like better Goo or Dirty, this video is so 90's teen, i would have been the guy in the red flanny.
Goat is a great album, my favourite band live. Try and get a hold of Bang. A live compilation album. ‘Mouth Breather” off of Bang is noisy gold
A mate just put me onto a young surfer / singer / songwriter from down amongst the Karri trees in Southern South West WA. His names Clay Western and he’s got a single out on Spotify called “ Holiday Dream”. He’s 18 years old and I’ve got a feeling you’ll be hearing more from this young fella.
One of those bands i like but still not a huge fan, but this gig is pretty impressive 3 hours and a setlist that covers pretty much every good song of theirs including a few from Gish.
Some weird covers in their too which actually kind of work.
Judging from this performance definitely not washed up as suspected.
Check out "Melvins- House of Strombo" on youtube for a recent gig from a shit hot band that predates the Whining Pumpkins and are still producing albums[25+ so far].
Been on the mellow train lately. Must be an age thing
I think that might have popped up in my Youtube suggestions i will check it out.
Ive always found the Melvins a funny band though some of my favourite songs are Melvin songs, mostly from Houdini and Stoner witch, but then there is so much I've tried to get into but just can't.
@Indo. Those albums are mid 90s ones . I reckon they have done heaps of good stuff since then. It takes time and listens to appreciate [the]Melvins. They have had a few different line ups over the years. Their albums mostly sound a from a bit different from each other while still sounding like [the]Melvins . Their latest "Pinkus Abortion Technician" is cracker, two bass players for double the "brown". One of the bass players is Jeff Pinkus, ex Butthole Surfers. They do a couple of excellent Butthole covers and a Beatles! cover.
Saw GZA from the WuTang Clan live last week so ive been going back to some 90's hip hop .. Liquid Swords etc.
Apart from that saw Trail of Dead play Source Tags and Codes back to front a few weeks ago. Some of those songs i'd never heard live. Been listening to that album a few times since then.
After watching a bit of the wavepool comp made me think of this
What a great tune. Which surf flick was that on? I can't remember offhand.
Rubber soul I think mate.
Yeah was Rubber Soul with the section at Quarantines.
Also had a few other rifle songs like.
-Electric snake river
Also some great Ed Keppuer songs
-Too many clues in this room
-When there is this party
I was trying to find some tracks from 80’s Adelaide band The Coneheads on youtube. They featured on another Ripcurl surf movie Savage Cuts 2. Instead I stumbled across this Canadian band of the same name. They sound like DEVO on meth. Pretty cool actually....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GtHe4bc4q70
That was unreal!
Also dig the full title of the album, "14 Year Old High School PC-Fascist Hype Lords Rip Off Devo for the Sake of Extorting $$$ from Helpless Impressionable Midwestern Internet Peoplepunks L.P."
A mate put me onto this one recently. Really enjoyed it. As with all great songs, best cranked up nice & loud.
Worth watching for the obscure first track.
The thing I like about Capt Beefhart is that I sound great while singing along.
Some of these rock whiz covers duets are absolute gold
And this maybe better than the stones
Well Indo ya nailed that ....love those Rock Wiz endings......so many good ones.!
Matter of fact, who's got it now? Oi!
I was literally just singing this yesterday as I walked up the beach
Little wonder I love a beer .
Poignant and amping :
Fifty years of Trojan and a new doco to boot:
Drenge-Drenge 9/10 rock
Sturgill Simpson-Metamodern Sounds in Country Music 8/10
Sturgill Simpson-A Sailor's Guide to Earth 9/10
Jason Isbell-Southeastern 9/10
Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit-The Nashville Sound 9/10
I don't give out 10s.
Give 'em a whirl.
That was good.
Coming to my local! (snigger) Talk about mud flaps...
Tomorrow's GF. Fark! Two worst sets of supporters in footy. A song for 'em:
Oh, and go Pies...I s'pose. Anyone but the Eagles!
Go Eagles ........anyone but Pies :-)
Eagles best chance of winning is against the Pies, Richmond would have rolled over the top of the Eagles.
last quarter come back in the granny, you gotta love it!
Like SMB , don’t particularly like this song , but LOVE WA .
Only appropriate song off the top of my head.
A song for the times.https://youtu.be/cKPA1hvWjvw
Never the same without Kurt but still kinda cool.
Sound like Nirvana much!
Got the shits?
The kids are all over it, ekse
The kids are all over it, flossy
Shit that does sound like Kurt
Not a bad little doco for fans of Kyuss etc
