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.

Nice one Zen.
When I was eight years old all you needed to be cool was a Kiss T-shirt and a copy of Kiss Alive II and/or Dynasty.
Though it would be entertaining to see a band try a song like Christine Sixteen these days.
“ she’s been around but she’s young and clean“
Yowser.

Funny, where I grew up you got a beating if you didn’t like the Chisels. So not sure being a cool kid was a good thing Zen.
Anyways nearly there, a few tricky ones to come. T is for Tojo.

Cheers mate, all I could find was metal or jazz, neither really float my boat. Since you went metal with Batpiss, I will go jazz with Snarky Puppy.

I wouldn't describe Batpiss as metal, but I get the picture. That Snarky Puppy song is a bit much.

Here's Y. A wonderful love song. Fun fact, I have sung the.song, Martin, with Snuff live, on two occasions.

Rest in peace John Nolan (Powder Monkeys, Bored, Powerline Sneakers, Spencer P Jones), who passed away on Monday.

Incredible guitarist.

This is an absolutely savage performance.

Hiccups got to know Simon from Powerline Sneakers when he was in Red Planet Rockets and one of the versions of Splatterheads. Had some great nights with both of those bands. Simon was not too well either last I heard. Here's hoping he recovered.

This song reminds me of my time in Jakarta and Maluk sumbawa had slept with about 30-40 women without a condom each trip and promised a mate if i come home with aids id kill myself by filling my car with exaust fumes via a hose.
My mate killed himself a year later even though he was fluent in indonesian language and was a great surfer..i think he caught aids and decided to end it.

Ha ha yeah that was pretty loose.

About your mate though that is really sad, by all means have fun but keep it safe condoms suck but its better than getting a disease, suicide is a real sad thing i have known too many people that have taken their lives.

All it takes to pick up in maluk is to turn up at the beach with a brand new motor bike (rental or owned) and girls will come up to you. that happened to me i turned up at the beach on a new motorbike and a couple of hotties talking to locals walked up to me to check out my bike, i said "do you wanna watch a movie at my place?" they said sure.
both jumped on the back of my bike and i chased some wild pigs on the way home only 500 metres away was where i lived. anyway got home and put on a movie, had no seats or anything in my place just a couple of mattresses got stuck into one of the girls fingering while the other one watched then some neighbors started watching outside my apartment both girls got scared off by the neighbors watching...but that's how easy it was to pick up...just have a new bike and fresh tan and girls love you for it.
Even just carrying a surfboard to the surf spots will get you a girls number or two.

Would have been girls from Java or other Islands working as freelance hookers to service the local miners in the area hence why so carefree, local girls would never do that, it would bring huge shame on the family if rumours came about it in the community and locals could seriously come with you with a lynch mob if did that to a local girl even with consent, beach is most likely a pick up point for freelancers, they may or may not have wanted money latter if continued some of these girls are just happy to be with a westerner because find most of us attractive and exotic or because have money and would dream of becoming your girlfriend (not the kind of Indo girl you want to get involved with though)

These girls i guess are technically hookers but it's not a career choice, it's more something most do for a year or two then make money and go home to the village in Java cashed up to buy a home or start a business etc, they generally tell the family they have a job in Bali in tourism to cover their arse.

Its like in Bali nightclubs its rare to come across Balinese girls most are from Java a few from other islands, lot of well off girls from Jakarta on holiday these days but a lot of girls are just there to hook up with foreigners for money. (but often if like you won't even ask for money)

BTW. the tan would be irrelevant Indo girls generally love the opposite of brown skin, most love white skin, bigger noses, eye colours other than black or brown a big plus same with hair colour other than black, boards and bike would hurt though. (BTW. they still love westerners with black hair and brown eyes or a tan too)

PS. Just for the record no my wife was not one of these girls, she still lived at home(good family) when i met her and worked as a radio presenter and had never drunk or even been to a nightclub and never been to Bali or even been on a plane.

But yes when i was young i hooked up with lots of these girls, but i soon realised it was also easy and a lot more fun to hook up with the girls on holiday from Jakarta, actually I learnt a lot of Bahasa Indonesia from these girls, most are really cool chicks, occasionally there is the dodgy one though who tries to rip a foreigner off. (Etc steal money from wallet when asleep)
