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.
The new normal?
"The UK's first socially distanced gig happened in Newcastle last night.
500 separate raised metal platforms, each accommodating up to five people from the same family/household. Hand sanitizer and mini-fridge included. Drinks could be pre-ordered to avoid queues. Singing and dancing allowed too! Face masks were worn when making trips to the bar."
Just like having a booth at the opera.
Geordies are almost as smart as Scousers.
And while we're back there
Nice Sheepdog. Great memories. Have you read the Ian Curtis bio? Sad tale.
I can't imagine anyone writing a song like that these days and if they did, people would lose their minds.
Yet if they knew the real meaning...
And considering Curtis was himself an epileptic, and that diagnosis supposedly contributed to his suicide, makes it one of JD's more harrowing songs.
Someone mentioned Pavolv's Dog the other day and the old memory bank went into overdrive thinking about these guys. The vocals are next level.
Andy M writes "I can't imagine anyone writing a song like that these days and if they did, people would lose their minds."
TRUTH BOMB right there mate. Same with some of the Political punk stuff back then. I don't think you could get away with this now -
And Sheepy, I think irony is a dying thing.
Too easy for halfwits to misinterpret and get bent out of shape over.
Or these lyrics bahahahahahahaha
Filth! Potty mouthed teenagers.
Subversive leftie crap.
Everyone loves an aqua bog though, your datehole never feels so clean.
Continuing on with the love, sugar, peaches & cream theme. A more socially acceptable take on said theme than those filthy boys from Ohio Express, that’s for sure...
Happy Friday evening!
Find some old late 70s early 80s footage of MR and Shaun with the single v twinnies battle at the time.. Play this track in the background. I promise you.. You get a nostalgia buzz.
Nostalgia is a serious ailment often associated with premature ageing but is easily avoided with a little practice.
Blowfly is up with the modern tween stuff..
Actual footage of blowfly
Actual photo of 'Blowfly'.
ps how fucking shite is South Park? And nearly 25 years of it!
Dog help us all.
Was that Fischer-Z song used in an actual surf flick of the time?
I see Cheyne Horan on a Lazor Zap...or maybe a Simon 81 montage.
"The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there."
Who knows, Facto. I just picture on and in the wave surfing with track
And as far as "actual photos" go.
Actual photo of sheepdog - speed blur, ballina south wall.
So long as the mind is pliable.Big fan of nostalgia.
Balls of fire
Reckon there is room for both.
“We're doomed to repeat the past no matter what. That's what it is to be alive. It's pretty dense kids who haven't figured that out by the time they're ten.... Most kids can't afford to go to Harvard and be misinformed."
― Kurt Vonnegut, Bluebeard
Exhibit A: The mullet.
One of the best film clips for a tune?Well one of the best I've seen....
Cool clip Snuffy.
See kids, that's what smoking will do to you. Hard to believe that bloke is only 23.
Deserves a clap.
Now these are music videos. Have they been posted before? Best viewed in order straight after each other (you'll see why).
An interesting character.
Some tunes for a cold grey Tuesday in lockdown central.
Here’s a song which you’ll be humming till bedtime.
How good was Australia when a couple of shirtless lads could wander onto the pitch and shake the player’s hand mid game , without getting fined $100K . Spectators loved it .
And how good was it when enthusiastically smashing a cold beer with your mates wasn’t viewed as one up from first degree murder. No one wants domestic violence, drink driving deaths or getting glassed in a pub but the modern incarnation of a beer as a hesitant sip in muted silence leaves me cold.
Ah the old cat piss in a can, Can't say I'll be humming that mofo any time today, but each to their own.
I like this one better.
Was digging through the vinyl and came across an album by these boys. An old but a goody.
Fun band live.
First time I went to Glasgow, The Meteors and the whole psychobilly scene was huge. I was quite pleasantly shocked.
Have you got that compilation album Rockabilly Psychosis and the Garage Disease, Blackers?
1981 GC Shockabillys Johnny Bullet & The Ballistics + (Social Cancer/tbb)
@ North End Boardriderz Gig / Skegz vs Punkz (All in Carpark Brawl)
1983 Gold Coast 1st Psychobillys were Scott & Dot.
1983 Flip-out Psychobilly track was on downunder party play lists.
UK Top 40 - King Kurt - Destination Zululandhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXP26Cl2o5I
Now there a bunch of tunes Facto. I have a copy on cassette somewhere, and still have something to play it on! Went down a wormhole on YouTube after listening to some of those, only just coming up for air. I caught the tail end of that scene in London in the early 90’s, but grew up on the Melbourne sludge country/rockabilly sounds, so very fond memories.
Many a wild night in the 80s to this shit
Not quite Fischer z Sheepdog! Mind you I have one of their albums in the crate as well. The follies of youth.
Check the end credits of this insidious ear worm on TOTP. The good old daze!
1895 Oz oldest band The Fuzz belt out a sisterly act for their brothers...

Haha. What a soundtrack for the recent Freedom rallies!
Bravehearts salute you and the boyz, TBB.
Way cool TB. That singin' chick has a set of pipes.
Wonder if the blokes on bass and keyboards are twins?
Facto, on your chirpy chirpy cheep cheep song above- Ron Jeremy on drums?
Never forget when I was a kid and my old man had a 7" vinyl - the ones where you used an adaptor for the big hole. One side was Middle Of The Road "Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep" and the other side was The Sweet "Ballroom Blitz". Bit of a time warp that one Facto.
Ron Jeremy on drums, Jimmy Savile on the fiddle Zen??
Haha, bravo gaz.
Ha ha! Gary.
Don't go there.
