What Are You Listening To - The Reckoning


Recommended Posts

And blues lyrics aren't self-indulgent??

they can be

just because it's the blues doesn't make it any good, there you go again confusing the general with the particular

edit: I was talking about a particular appalling set of lyrics, not an entire genre.

John Lennon's 'Love' isn't a particularly deep song. In fact its pretty simplistic. Still a bloody good tune. Like the song that is mentioned from the Slash album with Ozzy Osbourne singing it.

it's pop music

it doesn't have to have depth: Louie Louie doesn't have 'depth'

simple is good, in fact in many ways it's the whole point: but simple doesn't have to be adolescentesque moronic doggerel, John Lennon has been as guilty of this as anyone; oh yoko, imagine, the ballad of joh and yoko being notorious examples.

Today's stroll had as its soundtrack:

Nocturama by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

Stand out track for me was Bring it On

Borderline NSFW and featuring a very tubby Chris Bailey.

The return journey had Surrender by the Chemical Brothers which made me walk at strange paces.

And today's stroll had

Ga ga ga ga ga

by Spoon.

To be honest it was so unmemorable I've just had to fire up the MP3 player to see what it was I'd been listening to.

Cindy Incidentally - Faces, one of their greatest. Fantastic Ronnie Wood guitar riff to start.

“Few thought him even a starter.There were many who thought themselves smarter. But he ended PM, CH and OM. An Earl and a Knight of the Garter.”

Clement Attlee.

US Hardcore band who did a good line in surf instrumentals. This is a beaut.

Never heard that before. Love it.

Edit: With the added bonus of a link to German thrashers Kreator on the same page.

Yeah, plenty of links with old US hardcore there as well. Speaking of Kreator, I was out with Paradise Lost last night (well half of them...old mates don't you know...) and they were telling me that Mille Petrosa stood in on gutiar for them recently when their gutiarist had to fly home due to his fathers death. Said it was weird having a former hero playing with them.

You're such a groupie, John. :D

Ooh get you :P

I lost a shoe during a Kreator gig at the Christmas on Earth festival at Leeds Queens Hall in '88 IIRC - it was an all dayer and they cam on earlier than advertised because Voivod pulled out - so I had to spend the rest of the day and evening with only one shoe - anybody who attended a gig at the Queens Hall would know just how unsavoury the floor got :blink:
