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.

I’ve heard a Bon Jovi story along the same lines re “ structural realignment of the industry “

Take your spandex and hit the road

"80s man, best shit ever."
"Bet your arse. Guns and Roses ruled."
"Crue. Def Lep."
"Then that Cobain pussy had to come around and ruin it all..."

Onya Chook!
‘Water No Got Enemy’ is probably my favorite song at the moment, along with Allman Brothers ‘Hot Lanta’.

Here is his son Suen with Newen Afrobeat doing an awesome cover of a Fela song called Opposite people.

"water got no enemy" has to be one of the best song titles. and what a song!

Fela's songs were dance club staples in New York, with everyone knowing the words and singing along. soul-stirring stuff.

i think i saw suen kuti play at the opera house a couple of years back. it was really good... and really loud. i like that latest track.

ginger baker drummed with fela and tells some pretty good tales in "beware mr baker".

Great links Philo, that first one is smoking - big sound.
Would like to see it on stage and see if they can get anywhere near Fela’s stage presence and charisma.

Just checked out that doco that Chook recommended.
Beware of Mr Baker.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=josXy65dQI8
That's got to be one of the all time great music docos (and only 8,479 views) what a character, what a crazy life, had me in stitches of laughter several times.

thanks for the beamafilm link, i wasn't aware of it. looks great.

i came across that ginger baker doco on a "top 10 music docos" list. another one of the list is "oil city confidential". it's about dr feelgood. the band played at anita's theatre in thirroul last year.

Here's a mate of mine's latest. Not really my pint of Sparkling but I'll give him a shout-out. We were at the Crows game at Easter and I said I'd pass it on.

Funnier still was this dude I met at the footy. He was standing behind us. I didn't know who the fuck he was, but I overheard his missus talking about one of the Suns players who happens to be another mate's relation. Turns out she was too! Adelaide's one degree of separation.

Anyway, crew kept yelling out 'Gasworks' at this dude. And other more unsavoury things. After questioning WTF, he explained it all to me.

If you're a SA denizen you'll know why this was funny shit.

AndyM thanks for sharing such an excellent track from a very cool band.
Factotum's mate was up against the best! Hard act for anyone to follow.
I'm sure The Brels will be riding Wild Horses come Finals Day!
tbb also prefers dancing to Booker T with Gary G in his gold bikini.
