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 Ben, Stone Age Romeos is such a classic killer first album. Still gets a spin in the car every now and then. Can’t say the material that came after grabbed my attention nearly as much but they were a great live act. Nice to hear they are still doing it loud and proud.

Check out Sister Rosetta Tharpe from Arkansas playing live in Manchester England at an abandoned railway station in 1964 on YOU TUBE and she was watched by people like Eric Clapton , Jeff beck, Keith Richards and Brian Jones….awesome clip…

Just realised.. Dave Faulkner (Hoodoo Gurus frontman) is 64 years old! Just amazed at how well he still sings - not much difference to when the band were in their prime - as well as how good his endurance is to punch out a ninety minute set, gig after gig on tour.

Some more back catalogue. 90's stuff from the UK.

Blackers I liked those, sounded like the time, the held notes on the keyboards...

Right back at you VJ, that is a great album by the Inspiral Carpets, with that signature keyboard sound. Fun times for me, spent most of the 90's in London and saw plenty of great bands.

+1 for the Killer Ted's udo. I lol'd at the clip. Also +1, that's the first time I've ever clearly heard the lyrics to that song.

These four have been doing the rounds at mine of late...

^ for calm

^ for aggro (skip the first 40secs if audio of animal torture is too much)

^ for some misanthropic disco

^ for modern psych

Nice mix jwithay. Liked the last 2 particularly, along with Udo's contributions above. That Killer Teds video is a treat.

Here's a nice pop track getting quite a bit of airplay here atm. Girl is really cute I reckon.

Funny you mention Engelbert. One of my late mother in laws favourites as was the the previously posted BeeGees. Heard it plenty of times and good experiences attach to the songs

Keep them coming crew.
Seeds had a little look at rage last night too. Interesting as that was a highlight from dave faulkner I only caught the end of. Swellnet's dj's are setting the work tone well. Crew know their tunes.

Love me some Peep Tempel!

Not sure about it being a new release though...the band called it quits but frontman Blake is doing his own thing.

Caught'em at Meredith years back just after 'Carol' went big...amazing set in the afternoon sun, many boots held high.
