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.

OK ....look, it’s 25 & 1/2 hours early but fuck it.....Kurt Cobain died 26 years ago.

So here’s a song. A song that I’ve heard so many times that I’ve previously hoped to never , ever hear again.

Fucker still has legs though :

Havent listened to that for a while and heard it literally hundreds if not thousands of times before, but its actually still sounds pretty good, almost fresh, video has held up too catches the spirit of the time.

Only complaint in hindsight is maybe just a bit over produced and vocals a bit high in the mix.

Please Stunet give me an ignore button for Talking Turkey, Shatners Basoon, Dale Cooper, Factotum, Pupkin, and any new fake profile he decides to create.

I’m infected.

Infected with this frickin song. It played in a movie I watched yesterday. First time I’d ever heard it. You’ve probably heard it a trillion times already.

Can’t stop singing the chorus. Was happily washing the car when my lady came out and asked me what I was saying. Apparently I’d been loudly singing as I tend to do with a catchy tune and I’m happily focused on some task.

Only this time I was repeatedly singing ....” Sucking on my titties like you wanting me , calling me all of the time “

It’s still going through my head.

I cant get enough of this song this week, an early 90s gem i only just discovered a few days ago, their others songs aren't bad either, bit of a mix of all those bands from that era.

In my boredom I stumbled on this article from The The front man Matt Johnson which was from 2007. Interesting read about the state of the music industry even back then.

And this song of theirs released in 89 is very relevant today.

was pretty special. They are a great band live, moving stories to accompany many songs, and then also dig back into the Red Gum repertoire. Saw em in Eumundi a bit over a year ago, memorable

TBB will have his own take but I put them squarely into the proto-punk catagory. At the same time bands were indulging in overblown glam and prog-rock, the Modern Lovers were kings of the repetitive four chord riff - and in Roadrunner just two chords.

Lotta tropes that later became punk cliches got a toehold in the Modern Lovers.

@ H20

That's a pretty decent tune might have to throw that on my playlist, they are kind of one of those bands ive seen the name of but never checked out.

I can hear the influence they must have had on other bands, in a weird sense it even sounds quite modern but i wasn't even born in 72

@ thermalben

I never really got into Big heavy stuff, but they kind of seem like one of those 90s bands that got lost in the mix, i always think of them in the same mix as "Violetene" or "Sidewinder" or "Polyanna" i never really got into any of them but saw them support other bands, i think maybe if there hadn't been a lot of other bands like "Tumbleweed" "You am i" "Magic dirt" "Powderfinger" "Something for Kate" "Spiderbait" "Grinspoon" "frenzy rhomb" etc maybe they would have got more attention, you could probably include bands like "Screamfeeder" "the Fauves" in that mix too, although they had more attention.

Yep, there's a million bands that didn't quite get there. Got fond memories of a lot of 'em, and done shows with all of the ones you've listed above except Grinspoon (who I can't stand).

Actually saw Paul Dempsey play a ripper solo show a few weeks back - it's been amazing to see how far he (and SFK) have come since their early shows (we did quite a few with them back in the day).

In fact Paul was one of several catalysts for getting me to to go back to Uni and study meteorology, which eventually resulted in the birth of Swellnet. I was doing guitars for one of their Adelaide shows, and we had a long post-gig chat about all kinds of fascinating things he was studying at the time (astronomy, if I recall corectly). I thought about our convo a lot over the following weeks and then ended up re-enrolling at Flinders.
