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.

I actually liked that. I was getting a pommie B52s vibe.

Mmmm, the Fall. Mark E Smith is another character worth having a read about.

John Peel's favourite band (another bloke worth reading about).

As Peel famously said about 'em: "They are always different; they are always the same".

Swapping parts and roles
Is not acting but
Rather
Emancipation
From expectation
Collectivism and autonomy
Are not mutually exclusive
Those who find discomfort
In your goals of liberation
Will be issued
No apology

Crew have often posted & laughed at their fav Comedian Ellen Burbidge...
Ellen is one half of those clever chix fronting the hilarious "Honest Government Ads"

tbb feels it's only fair to share Ellen's hidden talent as a Musical Artist.
Ellen has released a few music vids over the last year but one cover stands out as something special.

Ellen pulls millions of fans for Govt spoofs but rewarded only 5,000 for her music tributes.
This state of the art Video is so clever and what a beautiful voice & guitar work...wow!
Ellen covers the (Bangles - Eternal Flame)...Crew will equally love Ellen's ***** Music Clip.

Rock School (Crew gets to be the Judge!)
Saints Tribute Continues...with Ed.

2 Similar Songs / 2 Identical Hooks / 2 similar Verses / 2 incredibly good Artists
1991 Picked up on this upon release of brilliant Oz Classic LP
Note...purely because tbb had a scratchy copy of the first band.(Very rarely played...pre > www)
tbb was actually super confused...thinking it was a tribute...still not sure?
Played it to a flatmate back in the day...both local Ed Fans & both shook heads! Yeah right!

1991 Band Ed Kuepper > ( Is this a Tribute? ) The way I made you Feel

&list=PLWbSyJV5fIuPqnuqm1UE5DE3zO9HZd8aL&index=4

Note same bars
Exact same 1 minute spacing for exact same Hook.
Now simply Flip the same Lyric : "I like the way you make me feel!"

1968 Status Quo > Sunny Cellophane Skies

21st March 2005 : All them years later & Ed has a seedy Flower Power trip...Judgement Day!
This was the right question to ask & Ed knew damn right it was...but was still caught off guard!
Answer..Long Pause! Ed had to think long about how to best answer this with a decoy Question!
May shock a few puritans...but it pays to keep an open mind...with this connection!
Johnny Rotten claims Ramones are like Quo & says Pistols were influenced by Quo more than Ramones!
Saints can't avoid being compared to Ramones & now Ed says Quo...Go Figure!

Today is a day for Public Service Broadcasting


pop-stars dream of releasing songs this good

...


last two minutes are musical bliss
"No magician who ever could have waved his wand could have waved it with more acumen than he had at the present moment"

...


and this song just rips

Waaaay later in the night. Till then...

That Dancing Tongues track was a cool sonic admixture of Police Truck and Too Drunk To Fuck, Blackers.

Anyhow, cool jumper sported by guitarist Dec Martens here.
