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.

Two albums got a good thrashing today - Helmet's "Betty" and Girls Against Boys' "House of GVSB".

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.

Had a thing for " Callistan " by Frank Black ( Teenager of the year ) last couple of days. Post apocalyptic retrospective of LA .

How good is soaking up good tunes with a buzz going. I've got a similar deal going to you Stu.

Ha...my idea of a great night in Blowin. Worked my way from GG Allin to Napalm Death but the intermittent Spotify ads featuring sunny dance music were too much of a shock. Had to move on. Prolly a good thing, the growling was scaring the kids. Gone somewhat downtempo with Bad Brains > Stooges > XTC > Jesus and Mary Chain > and looking for my next avenue....

Nah Blindboy haven't heard them... But I will now. Cheers.
Downtempo ? I've gone from Roman beach party ( Celibate Rifles) to Honeymoon is over ( Cruel Sea ) .

Anymore downtempo and I'll be a puddle on the floor.

Going to watch a Muy Thai boxing fight in a couple of hours, better start ramping the atmosphere back up...

Tatanka (sitting bull), just been listening to that fine dub TGF, been awhile since I listened to dub, which put me down the electronic music realm.

I thought yo flew little choppers TGF not big iron ore trains, the cockpit looks like a DJ set up.....?
Do you own a Tatanka travel bag...?

I still fly little choppers, used to fly the UAV's at Telfer.
These days I'm a Tech Writer - my current gig is writing the operating procedures for these track maintenance machines. I like to get involved in my work, so I gets hands on and have a go at whatever I can. Driving these track machines has been a real cool learning experience.
The way things are going I'm gonna be stuck at Hedland for a while with BHP, spewin cause that blows out my Kazakhstan gig.

Tatanka travel bag, never heard of them. Good quality eh?

There is also an Italian DJ who goes by the name of Tatanka if you like electro.

Pulled out three consecutive albums by Gomez this afternoon - Bring It On, Liquid Skin and Split the Difference. Sometimes this band just slots in perfectly for the mood.

Good travel bags Tatonka.com, very durable, the image of the bull always gets me as I see a silhouette of a girls forehead with a big nasty dreadlock sticking out the back haha. My own vision.
Back to the tunes Gomez.....?
