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.

Indo you may have heard this this track too, got to a high ranking on the charts and played everywhere around 2007, 2008

I actually met this bunch on Jalan Jaksa in Jakarta and partied with them in Stadium when it was open.
was then invited to film a video clip with them which is this next one, full friendliest music stars ive ever met.


That's me at the start my role was white slavery carrying the cart. Friendliest crew ever, we then went to a gig and danced on stage.

Neil even owns up in the lyrics;
"I'm singin' this borrowed tune/I took from the Rolling Stones/Alone in this empty room/Too wasted to write my own."
Hard to complain about that.

Haha Icandig, I'm following.

Egregious, that one.

Curious as to what they had to say about it I did a little reading and the band claims their inspiration came from Motown.

Holds weight

Is it just a little scary to think that most of the information I find interesting comes from a disparate bunch of surfers on a forecasting website? Thanks J.

Someone mention Black Francis? Someone else posting covers? Here's one I came across recently with both. I like it.

Really enjoyed that one icandig. Cheers. It's such a great song and they did it justice for sure.

Speaking of covers, I stumbled across this one recently which really tickled my fancy. And no, nothing to do with shiny black tight leather pants either.

I think Triple J's Like A Version is one of the sadder excuses for relevant music foisted upon da yoof of today.

Second rate butcherings of once-proud songs, being passed off as something fresh and hip.

Does the kids no favours.
