BLOODY AWSOME COLLECTION!
DISC 3 (BASTARDS) IS MY FAVOURITE

CLT
ALTAR BOY


Great to see another Tom Waits fan here. I haven't yet checked that 3 CD collection - maybe because it seems like a bit too-much...

By the way, what are your favourite Waits albums?

Fatter than Bob, balder than Porl, as sober as Simon, as amusing as Jason

Beautiful album. "Five Leaves Left" also. Drake's music is something of a hidden treasure, maybe because it is so understated.


Agreed. Five Leaves Left is a great album. Speaking of which, I suppose there's little hope of anyone ever posting a recording of The Cure playing Fruit Tree, terribly curious about it... I like Tom Waits and Opeth as well, what I've heard so far.

By the way:

My favorite.

And I read somewhere that Robert really likes the song "Time Has Told Me". He said "perhaps it's where we got our name from?" because he says the word "cure" in the lyrics. I believe he says this on iTunes Celebrity Playlist on the Australian iTunes.

disco inferno has to be my latest re-discovery of this year --- well, i never stopped listening to them anyway.
please don't be fooled by the band's name ;)
i discovered this year some outtakes from their last album, technicolour (the previous one was called D.I. go pop, but again, don't be etc).
boring sentence to be sure, but this has to be one of the most underrated bands ever. what they did to "pop" structures (in a very general sense : here, the influences are more directly post-punk), with their unique use of samples of everything (polaroids, children singing, flute playing, waves, whatever), was inconceivable back then (not per se, of course, but all mixed up like this it was), and still remains.
the melodies, the guitar & bass, the vocals - well, hear for yourself.
check out "where did i go wrong?" here, especially take 2 (the links are still working apparently) :

hmm... no it's not. the one you kindly mention is a little bit austere for my taste.

never heard of them before, should check them out i guess.

currently:



i remember in some long ago pre-internet days when this was solely available in the original 7" single which was pretty hard to come by, at least where i came from (let alone to ever get to see the video of this anywhere as it was never really included on any video compilations). by a stroke of good luck, on this record fair, i found a copy of the 7" being stashed (probably accidentally) into a huge lot of 7" singles all marked with a bargain price... and the seller didn't realize his mistake in pricing when i paid for my purchase - luckily because i wouldn't have had the money to pay the real price.
made my day.  :-D

a great video!  :) --> U2 - celebration

early u2 still rocks  :rocker whatever has become of bono these days.
