For some reason NIN just passed me by completely.
I got this from a friend in Scotland recently & really enjoyed it.
I'm planning a "shopping" trip to amazon later, so something else may end up coming my way.
Can you recommend anything?

i've always really liked 'the fragile' a lot, although i suppose any "real fan" (:lol:) should say it's too long and incoherent etc. etc.
 - a bit like any "real" cure fans are supposed to be bashing WMS, i suppose...
anyway, i always liked it a lot. for me there's certain kind of "glide" on it that is not found on other NIN albums and which i really genuinely like.
then again, i cannot not recommend 'pretty hate machine' and 'downward spiral' too. :smth023
i'd say those two are worth getting.

some of the re-mix "albums" are pretty useless (like 'thing falling apart' etc.). some good re-workings here and there but nothing more.
i didn't enjoy the latest album 'with teeth' either. whereas it's a good thing that mr. reznor feels a lot better these days than he obviously did in the late 90s and it's good that he didn't end up going down that certain spiral altogether AND whereas i do know it's a stupid thing to say it, but i'm still almost left with the feeling that he did make better music when he was all messed up. 'the fragile' is the peak of that, i suppose.

For years we have had to endure the frankly totally sh!t original CD transfer of this, unless we were lucky enought to have the WEA mixes bootleg.

hmm maybe i should try to convert myself over again... not sure - you see i tried so many times already. ;)
anyway, no doubt it's an improvement for sure.

about the stations: i'll actually be on my way to the railway station later today for real. so maybe i'll just go hang around well in time and sort of "spike it up" a bit, i'm feeling slightly nostagic today... hehehe i think the H&M kiddies need something to stare at for a change instead of being stared at themselves hahaha :P :P

"Pompeii Am Gotterdamerung" (sp) off of the last Flaming Lips album... Phenomenal song. Can't wait until the DVD-A/surround version comes this week...

Oh, and I totally agree on The Fragile. It's neither too long, nor too incoherent, IMO. I like the repeating/similar musical themes that surface and re-surface throughout the album. Parts of certain songs can be clipped and pasted into totally different songs and fit and sound pretty natural. I haven't listened to it in a while, so examples are not coming to me right away.

Oh, now it's "Heavenly Nobodies" by Lush.

yes, exactly. i think it's actually pretty succesful in the use of repeted materials/themes/motives. every other album i knew that tried the same more or less failed, yet 'the fragile' manages to produce interesting and meaningful links and arches between the songs. you get these repeated feelings of deja-vu that really serve something within the overall structure.
of course the structure isn't as straightforwardly powerful as it is with 'downward spiral' - maybe people simply grew to expect something similar again and again. but i especially like the contrast and combination that placing such straightforward material within such a layered structure produces. because in that way just about everything in it becomes much more dimensional and meaningful. to me  'downward spiral' is very "chronological", like you "read it from left to right". in 'the fragile' it suddenly becomes three-dimensional.
i haven't found many people to agree with me on this, but this is the reason why i do think that 'the fragile' actually is a step forward from 'downward spiral'.

"Pompeii Am Gotterdamerung" (sp) off of the last Flaming Lips album... Phenomenal song. Can't wait until the DVD-A/surround version comes this week...

ahh i have to admit i'm pretty much totally illiterate with flaming lips - i guess i should get this distortion fixed someday soon.  :oops:

kyoto song.

hehe no offense at all of course but for me 'kyoto song' has got to be one of the most annoying cure songs ever.
the phrase structure (or should i say "structure") keyboard melody is so poor that it's almost idiotic
- it sounds like it was made by some musical moron, not by the band that... uh! :oops:
it's a bit annoying really, that they used to play it that much live!
ok sorry for rant - i suppose i should have post on the topic "songs that you HATE"  :twisted:

Title: Re: Currently Listening to

Bit like the keyboard melody in The Walk then  ;)
Title: Re: Currently Listening to
Post by: japanesebaby on April 16, 2007, 14:02:11
Bit like the keyboard melody in The Walk then  ;)

no, i think the melody in 'the walk' is actually a pretty good musical invention - and this regardless of whether or not one liked the song. the melody in 'the walk' is based on a clearly defined idea that's clearly directed somewhere. yes it might be very short but still musically it's "going somewhere". and it has a rhythmic spine that carries it onwards - now where's that on 'kyoto song'? uh, there is none... *blush*
'kyoto song' is just clumsy what comes to the overall structture of the melody/compositional use of the melodic motives:
at first it's stuck within a range of a perfect fifth, repeating one idea, then repeating the second idea that's even more narrow registrally... and there, at the very last moment possible to save it, instead of finally offering us some catch, some proof of "why we even bothered this far", what was all that opening stuff trying to take us... then it just completely fails us by making a pointless  return to the oepning motive!! that's just a silly decision altogether, there's no point in the whole thing then.
anyway, i tink it was pretty much dead from the start anyway. the opening motives are too symmetric both melodically and rhyhtmically, it gets framented and cannot ever build a melodic arch that it's pretending it's doing.
thus.

' the walk' - good work!  :smth023

'kyoto song' -  :oops: :oops: :oops:

The Walk = good work on Simon's part (well, live), playing those damned octaves perfectly every time. I can't think of a show where I've heard him flub the bassline to that.

Drowning Man??? :-D

uhh, sorry everyone who likes them but what a dreadful piece of music!
maybe there's some general atmospheric similarity/similarity of tempo to 'the drowning man' but i have to say i wouldn't have thought about it unless it hadn't been suggested to me first. mainly because the harmonies/bass line are not at the same. even if they were more alike, i think this 'out of the sky' song would be just a perfect example for demonstrating everything that's good in 'the drowning man': 'the drowning man' is such a great song because there's such an intensity of the structure, there is an dramatic arch that gets built up and thus actually hides the fact that it's still just looping a certain passage of music anyway. do the same without the arch and you get what we have here: a sense of something just looping over and over again, without any real motivation for doing it...
ok, sorry to be harsh... but i really was getting bored to death while listening to this band...!
*sorry*

hi steve
uh, about the flu: let me just say if you're feeling flu-ish this week and you're still feeling flu-ish next week - then take the hint and start taking it easy well in time. i sort of didn't and now i'm on a sick-leave until may.  :?

i must have started my day a bit harshly, i guess... but i just found the song pretty dreadful...

hehehe i must have been out of my mind but actually i bought that one last week. one of the local record stores had this big annual sale and i ended up buying quite a lot of things (i couldn't decide which one or two i'd buy so i had to choose the whole bunch).
i have to agree that the sound is HUGELY improved there. the old one was really really dreadful, i can hear it now.
and i can actually even enjoy some of it a bit, like'black planet', 'walk away'. anyway still i just miss the variety of songwriting/arrangements/sounds/atmospheres. i guess that's why i never really learned to recognize any SoM songs: they all just sound too much alike to me.
and one things for sure: i absolutely can not stand 'amphetamine logic'!!  :evil:
mr. eldritch's howling makes me go completely nuts, i'm afraid i have to say i don't want to hear that song ever again! :?

but i also was listening to their royal albert hall '85 show the other day and it surely had its moments, i have to admit.

yes i know i know... i must be on a warpath again.  :twisted:
but let me explain myself:
i decided to try and listen to 'low life' again the other day, like "let's give these guys another chance".
but 'love vigilantes': now that's got to be one of the most stupid songs EVER written - everything in it is plain awful. it's musically annoying, the lyrics are horrible (and b. sumner whining those particular lyrics just adds to the pain...) - it's so cheesy that it makes you want to shoot yourself to the foot, just to feel something else. i just couldn't stand it, i could never even finish that one song and so never got into perfect kiss & the rest, sorry!

I'M STUNNED WITH ALL THIS NEW ORDER BASHING...

YOU DONT HAVE TO GO FURTHER FROM THEIR LAST TWO ALBUMS TO ADMIT HOW GREAT THEY ARE!

AND THE FACT IS, THEY ARE STILL RELEVANT BAND WHICH STILL DICTATES HOW THINGS SHOULD BE DONE IN ALTERNATIVE MUSIC SCENE...

I CANT SAY THE SAME FOR MANY, MANY OLD ALTERNATIVE BANDS. THE CURE INCLUDED...


PS

ALSO:
JOY DIVISION ARE THE ONE THING
NEW ORDER ARE THE SECOND THING

YOU CAN'T JUST COMPARE THE TWO!!!

 :smth011

THEY ARE BOTH GREAT IN THEIR OWN FEILD...
THIS IS SIMILAR TO THE FACT THAT MANY BANDS HAVE TWO OR THREE SEPARATE AND TOTALLY DIFFERENT STAGES IN THEIR CAREER AND YOU CANT JUST COMPARE THEM AND BE REALLY FAIR... (FOR EXAMPLE COMPARE PUBLIC IMAGE LTD FROM 1978, FROM 1983 AND FROM 1992 - THREE DIFFERENT BUT EVENLY GREAT BANDS!)

 :smth011

yes i agree. and actually i don't aim at comparing the two, although it might seem so.
i just don't find anything much interesting in new order (apart from a few individual tracks).
and thus it often makes me really disappointed, to see they utter musical regression after joy division was over. and i do not mean they became bad because they became different than joy division - it's actually a good thing that they didn't try to continue something exactly similar to joy division. that would have been the worst choice, probably. yet i just find they never find anything much to say afterwards. what little there is is destroyed by mr. sumner. he's really one of the most amazingly poor vocalists ever, i stand with this conviction. but that's just my opinion of course. so in any case i don't think it has to be anything dramatic here. if someone here likes them, that's fine. of course i'm not aiming at bashing people who like them, that's just all right with me of course.
i guess i just like to bash them because for me they seem to be totally irrelevant.
:)

honestly, i've tried to like them, or at least tried to follow their career. the last new order album i ever bought was 'get ready' which was a really  huuge disappointment for me, once again.

Fair point Janko (STILL SHOUTING  ;))
& my point was that there are some awesome NO songs around.
However, if you consider State Of The Nation & Shellshocked, you can't help but (well, I can't)reach for the remote to skip them or turn them off completely.
Yep, they are not & never will be JD & no-one else will be either (despite a few p!ss poor efforts to copy them), but you also have to ask yourself, how is it that 3 members of one of the best bands ever went on to produce the audio abomination that is Confusion?
Can't be that Curtis was the only person in JD with some sort of dignity surely!
That said, the Cure are also guilty of churning out crap (six different ways, close to me,the whole of wild mood swings) & they also desrve a good bashing from people who know just how good the cure can be if they tried.
NO should take note.
My motto is if you don't like it, don't listen to it, so I don't.

surely, bashing someone on and on accomplishes nothing and is no good food for conversation, i admit that.
anyway, that's pretty much what annoys me so much about NO: how come those guys ever managed it?

and so, i just gave 'low life' another chance (naturally skipping 'love vigilantes' altogether ;)).
'sunrise' isn't too bad as a song -- i'm sure i could like it if someone made a decent cover version of it. i guess with me it pretty much focuses on mr. sumner: that track is just an amazing example, i think. honestly, when i listen to 'sunrise' i can't help it but to imagine i'm listening to some funny gag-reel from last week's local 'idols' show, where some poor wanna-be-a-singer-no-matter-what kind of dude is trying to cover a song although he can't sing shit. that's honestly as bad as it sounds to me, mr. sumner's singing. and so i can never understand how it is possible that musicians like that didn't manage (or even want to try to manage) to find someone else to sing for them! to me it's almost like a bad joke that just keeps going on and on, year after year.
so actually, as long as they stay instrumental ('elegia') i can start to imagine what it all could have been -- yet as i proceed with the album and 'sooner than you think' hits in with its "hello, everyone, it's nice to be here..." and the illusion is smashed to pieces...
and then, the semi-disco-hell of 'sub-culture' follows with it's classic opening lines of "i like walking in the park...." -- no.... :(

ok ok sorry guys, i know i should go home and feel ashamed. but i'm not just writing all this in order to mindlessly bash-bash-bash some band. it honestly never ceases to puzzle me, how come they turned out like that. and although comparing JD and NO is pointless i do think there are fair reasons to ask those questions and maybe also discuss them a bit.

but in case a change of subject is preferred, currently:

"Oh Father", by Madonna. Yeah, I know. Madonna.

I heard a fragment of this song (well, and the video) many years (17, 18!?) ago, and actually liked it a lot. However, I never got the name of it. All I could remember was a little melody from it, and that there was snow in the video. And that it was an insanely sad song. Over the years I must have hummed that one line a zillion times over, hoping someone could tell me what it is. Nope.

I stayed in last night, cleaning and goofing around when the thought occurred to me - if there was a video, YouTube has it. And it did. And now the hunt is over. It was a single off of Like A Prayer, but I guess it was pretty obscure. It wasn't even on that Immaculate Hits collection.

The video, as it turns out, was directed by David Fincher (!!!). And is still more than a bit creepy.

Finally. A nearly 18-year mystery solved!!

Alright, I'm done talking about Madonna.

That's my problem with New Order too. The guy's voice just doesn't do it for me. It sounds really generic and uninspired to me. I actually like some of their music quite a bit, but then the voice just ruins in. I also think some of their lyrics are pretty dumb.

I quite like a few New Order songs, actually, quite a bit even.

True Faith
Regret
Bizarre Love Triangle
Blue Monday

But I consider them a pop band, and pop bands tend to put out their best songs as singles. It thus does not surprise me that I like best their singles. Though definitely not all of them.

Mmmmmm. Madonna eh Rich?
You ever listened to the Live version of American Life from the "I'm Going To Tell You A Secret" dvd/cd?
I was very shocked when I first saw  it. It's actually brilliant.

"Oh Father", by Madonna. Yeah, I know. Madonna.

I heard a fragment of this song (well, and the video) many years (17, 18!?) ago, and actually liked it a lot. However, I never got the name of it. All I could remember was a little melody from it, and that there was snow in the video. And that it was an insanely sad song. Over the years I must have hummed that one line a zillion times over, hoping someone could tell me what it is. Nope.

I stayed in last night, cleaning and goofing around when the thought occurred to me - if there was a video, YouTube has it. And it did. And now the hunt is over. It was a single off of Like A Prayer, but I guess it was pretty obscure. It wasn't even on that Immaculate Hits collection.

The video, as it turns out, was directed by David Fincher (!!!). And is still more than a bit creepy.

Finally. A nearly 18-year mystery solved!!

Alright, I'm done talking about Madonna.



Nothing Wrong with Madonna.  I like quite a few of her songs.  Even caught her in concert many years back ('87 I think).

I THINK THE RAMONES CD'S SHOULD BE SOLD AT PHARMACY'S AS A 100% EFFECTIVE ANTIDEPRESSIVE...


MY FAVOURITE SONG:


DANNY SAYS

Danny says we gotta go
Gotta go to Idaho
But we can't go surfin'
'Cause it's 20 below

Sound check's at 5:02
Record stores and interviews
Oh, but I can't wait
To be with you tomorrow

Baby

Oho-ho-ho, we got nowhere to go
And it may sound funny, but it's true
Hangin' out in 100 B
Watching Get Smart on TV
Thinkin' about
You and me and you and me

Hangin' out in L.A.
And there's nowhere to go
It ain't Christmas if there ain't no snow
Listening to Sheena on the radio
Oh-ho oh-ho


THE ALBUM WAS PRODUCED BY PHIL SPECTOR, SO IT'S A BIT DIFFERENT THAT THE EARLY STUFF...
BUT ITS AMAZING!!!
I LOVE THE RAMONES!!!

i think it's pretty good.  :smth020


another random note in a hurry, considering MADONNA:
i'd say there's definitely something wrong with madonna these days. i was watching some live show in late night TV the other day (didn't catch when and where that was filmed but it was pretty recent show anyway) and i was just totally disappointed and bored and even annoyed to the point of not bothering to stay tuned very long at all. and i don't say that because i always disliked her, i really think she used to be much better. imho there are simply other people who put up similar kind of shows (if that's what one  chooses to be into) and do it much better - and most of all who are simply far better performers. what really annoys me and made it impossible to watch is a completel lack of class in her performance - and no i'm not asking for some pompous fake glamour or anything like that. if she wants to be an abba-ish disco queen then so be it but one could always do that with style too, why does it have to be so unclassy and cheap-ish? it's like the older she gets the younger she's trying to pretend she is, trying to pass for some thirteen-year old or something soon -- and i'm sorry, i'm just not buying it. let britney do the same and it's much more believable (and thus much more bearable in some ways, as much as i hate to say something like it!!).
and considering this, i really think madonna recent design collaboration with H&M says it all: those two seem suit to each other rather well these days, sadly. :roll:

(why do i always end up ranting in this thread, huh? sorry! ;))

Finally I've got manage to sign Dimeadozen and I am downloading some cool stuff. In the last days I have been a lot into Slowdive, which is an awesome band and personally my favourite after The Cure and Pink Floyd. I will share some stuff with you guys later.

I've been listening to a lot of MBV lately, as well. Mainly "Isn't Anything". Take away "No More Sorry" and you've got a killer record. Better than "Loveless", IMO.

As for Slowdive, I did dig out "Souvlaki" earlier this week. Great album as well. I need to pick up more...

Oh, and plenty of:

LEONARD COHEN - CHELSEA HOTEL No.2


Chelsea Hotel # 2


I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel,
you were talking so brave and so sweet,
giving me head on the unmade bed,
while the limousines wait in the street.

Those were the reasons and that was New York,
we were running for the money and the flesh.
And that was called love for the workers in song
probably still is for those of them left.
Ah but you got away, didn't you babe,
you just turned your back on the crowd,
you got away, I never once heard you say,
I need you, I don't need you,
I need you, I don't need you
and all of that jiving around.

I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
you were famous, your heart was a legend.
You told me again you preferred handsome men
but for me you would make an exception.
And clenching your fist for the ones like us
who are oppressed by the figures of beauty,
you fixed yourself, you said, "Well never mind,
we are ugly but we have the music."






Ah but you got away, didn't you babe,
you just turned your back on the crowd,
you got away, I never once heard you say,
I need you, I don't need you,
I need you, I don't need you
and all of that jiving around.

I don't mean to suggest that I loved you the best,
I can't keep track of each fallen robin.
I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel,
that's all, I don't even think of you that often.


ITS ABOUT LEONARD AND JANIS JOPLIN HAVING SEX AND A CHAT IN TE FAMOUS NEW YORK HOTEL

WELL, I GOT MY SONG OF THE SUMMER:



Tuesday Morning


BY: Spider Stacy


Too many sad days
Too many Tuesday mornings
I thought of you today
I wished it was yesterday morning
I thought of you today
I dreamt you were dressed in mourning

But I knew that you
WIth your heart beating
And your eyes shining
Would be dreaming of me
Lying with you
On a Tuesday morning

I fell through the window
And I found that I was still breathing
I thought of tomorrow
And the fear that you might leave me
I thought of tomorrow
And I wished it was Monday morning


Turn your face from me
And I will cover myself with sorrow
Bring hell down upon me
I will surrender my heart to sorrow
Bring hell down upon me
And I will say goodbye tomorrow




RIGHT NOW, MY THROAT HURTS BECAUSE I SCREAMED THE LYRICS ALL NIGHT LONG...
AND MY EYES ARE ALL REDDISH... FACE BLOATED...
WELL, BEDTIME FOR ME!

AH, "ONCE UPON A TIME" STARTS...

if you like that one you should try GLORIOUS

AND i was SO disappointed they did NOT play this song on either wembley or on paris parc des princes!

I'm walking in the city tonight
I'm walking in the city at dark
Remembering, remember light
Thinking of nothing, and the shooting stars
And this world tonight is mine
A world to be remembered in
Think on a faded photograph
My hair longer than its ever been
and then,the sky lit up
The sky, my friend
And I'm lighter than I've ever been
I saw the trees crossing the moon
I saw the stars in the Heaven above
Shine on my own beautiful prayer
Shining on my own beautiful love
The sky lit up
And I'm dancing with him
In this city and in this town
I don't care what he's thinking of
Just take the car, just take my hand
The sky lit up

I'M JUST ABOUT TO PLAY THE BEST SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES SONG EVER MADE

I CANT EXPLAIN JUST HOW MUCH I LOVE THE SONG
AND HOW MUCH I MISS THE BAND
AND IT MAKES ME CRY JUST HOW MUCH IT HURTS THAT THE BANSHEES ARE NO MORE

SO PLEASE:



 RETURN

   
Wonder where that plane is leading to
Wonder where that boat will ever stop
Wonder if this path I am treading
Will disappear and let me drop

Down to a hell that's surely waiting
Down to the hell I know that I deserve
Even though the spirit is willing
The flesh is blackened to the deepest nerve

When will you learn
The hurting it will return
When will you ever learn
This feeling is all you can discern

Oh my heart it is so broken
More than waves upon the golden sand
Fly my love on wings of mute confusion
And never ever land

When will you learn
When will you ever learn
The hurting it will return
This feeling is all you can discern

When will you learn
When will you ever learn
This feeling is all you can discern
The hurting always will return

Return

My original intention with the thread was to take a peek into what everyone listens to when The Cure wasn't in their machines.
I've read some posts & though "I haven't heard that in ages" or "think I might give that a try".
Most of the time, the community here point me in some very interesting directions & I think that's kind of healthy from a musical standpoint.
So, I'll try to keep my PT posts to a minimum.

i agree, kate is great at her best! :smth023 definitely one of my favorite artists.
and just as long as you stay away from 'sensual world' (1989) and 'red shoes' (1993) you won't be disappointed with her. especially the latter one (red shoes) is simply horrendous...  :oops: i don't know what she was thinking there...  :roll: but i suppose she realized it herself too and sat down and reconsidered things since it took a long time up until 2005 for her to release anything new... but coming back with 'aerial' (2005) is pretty impressive return. it's a good double album. although i like the 70s/early 80s stuff more.

some of her early videos are really weird, like 'wuthering heights':

Currently my Ash/Bravery masters from 2005. Never got around to splitting them up, and trying my hand at EQ-ing them. Mixed sucess so far. Trying to translate my WinAmp EQ settings to Audacity/Rezound (Linux WAV editors), as I can get them to sound quite nice on my desktop. Just trying for the best sound for my car / home stereo now.

If I can get them tightened/brightened up enough, I foresee a DIME seed, as I've been sitting on them for a bit after not really finding any other tapers for that tour.

MAGENTA SKYCODE - probably the best music from finland at the moment.
some tracks from their first album can be listened here:

http://www.myspace.com/magentaskycode

check out 'red eyes' or the video link for 'people', for instance.

"finnish quintet magenta skycode sound like the cure re-imagined by phil spector, making the sort of anthemic goth-pop that the bravery might be able to pull off if they weren't such a bunch of irrepressible fools" (said by the great escape t-mobile guide)


from their official website:

Raving reviews in Finnish media and abroad have paralleled Magenta Skycode with the likes of Air, David Sylvian, The Cure, Kings of Convenience, The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, Cocteau Twins etc. A more accurate comparison also would be early/present electronic movement. The songs of MS have an affectionate connection with songs of their peers. Indeed, "IIIII" is a masterpiece of its own – described well in Drowned in Sound as "a debut marked out by subtle, warm songwriting and hopeful spirit."

people:
jori sjöroos: voice, guitar, accordion, computer
tomi mäkilä: organ, synhesizer
niko kivikangas: drums, percussion
henry ojala: guitar
kalle taivainen: bass


ok not sure about the cure reference there hehe but i don't care, i just really like how their sound.

i'll be going to see them tomorrow night on a club gig - really looking forward to that! :smth023

Wow... I hope they come to the states (not likely, huh?). Neat stuff! I just checked out 'Red Eyes' and will have to check out the rest once I get home from work.

Not sure if I will be able to find the album around here, but luckily a friend from school was from Finland, and moved back there shortly after graduation. I'll have to drop him a line soon...

glad you like them! i've been really been thrilled about this group lately, and i'm really interested in seeing them live. they haven't played so many live shows around here so far either, i think.

i can always help you with that too, if you want. just let me know.

(+i think there's a couple of links to some online stores on their myspace website too. maybe some can post overseas?)

Following on the old punk wave, was listening to the Damned's "Machine Gun Etiquette" en route to work this morning. Awesome-ness.

(Still, "Strawberries" is my fave.)

I've also been listening to a lot of "Yacht Rock"-type stuff, putting together a mega-mix for a similarly-themed party on Saturday. Think Steely Dan, the Eagles (yeah, I hate 'em, but whatever), Christopher Cross, etc.

Or better, go to YouTube and watch the mini-series that inspired said party...

They do music for haunted houses, indie films, stuff like that.

This LP is a lot better than Howl. 8)

i got that album shortly after it came out, as i found it somewhat interetsing in a first listening.
yet after second, third... i have to say i grew bored with it very soon. recently i tried to get re-interested byt listening to some live stuff but also fell out of interested there.
anyway, not a bad album but just wasn't my thing i guess.

Marika, they are coming your way soon
15th December - Helsinki, House of Culture
16th December - Tampere, Pakkahuone

Tickets are available from www.lippupalvelu.fi and www.tiketti.fi.
 ;)

oh christ i was late and now they've sold out helsinki already.... gaaaaaaa !!!

:smth022



Someone's got to have ticket you can get hold of. Try the official site or something.I'll check around.

yessss i got it! i called them on saturday and this nice girl on the phone tipped me that it might be good to call 8 o'clock sharp on monday morning (because tickets that were reserved last week but were maybe never cashed out will be put into re-sale first thing on monday BUT that these will not be shown on their website, they only sell them by phone).

so now i have tickets to both gigs, both in helsinki and tampere - yesyesyes!! (http://www.mysmiley.net/imgs/smile/party/party0006.gif) (http://www.mysmiley.net)

anyway, as i always complain about no good bands/gigs coming my way, i have to admit these last months of 2007 are just about to make a phenomenal exception here: if all goes well (ALL fingers crossed!!!!) i'll get to see 3 muse gigs, now 2 times porcupine tree, 3 kent gigs (they'll play 3 consecutive nights here in helsinki on 4th-6th november  :rocker)
+ vnv nation is here on late october, psychic tv plays next week...

wow, ok hey let me know fast so there would be still hope to get you another ticket too! you see i didn't buy any extra ones yesterday for either shows since i really don't have friends who'd normally be interested in this sort of stuff.
anyway, i suppose arranging the accommodation would be a lot easier... ;)
(you know i really do wish i had money to fly over to see muse in a few eastern european dates! that would have been awesome... but my employer just had to ruin it all this autumn...  :evil:)

A tip.
You don't need to upload the image to photobucket or imageshack. If it's available on say Amazon, then you can right click the pic & paste the properties into the insert image function here. Might save a bit of time for you.
Of course, if it's a pic that's not readily available on the net, then photobucket etc. is the way to go.

they only made two albums in the early 80s before breaking up...
their 2nd album 'peilitalossa' ("in the house of mirrors") is now available in re-issue, with 10 bonus tracks.  :smth023

ELO - "Out of the Blue" and "Time". The first is awesome, the second is grossly ignored/underrated.

I've also recently come across a band called Film School that I'm liking. They're coming to Boston in a few weeks, so I'm pretty psyched. Kinda MBV-like from the one track I've heard (called "Lectric" - check it out!). I have to pick up their album...

There's also been a string of other decent UK bands coming through Boston that I've seen lately: the Cinematics, the Klaxons, the Aliens (ex-Beta Band members), to name a few.

I've also got the new Ash album coming to me from the UK sometime this week, via a friend who's over there now... So technically I'm not currently listening to it, but it's only a matter of time, now. Ash = awesome.

it's been christmas here lately, since the band is playing three(!) consecutive nights here in helsinki is a rather small venue.
i've attended the first two gigs, today's the third. ahh it's been so good... i love these guys. and while they might often confuse even their biggest fans with what they do on their albums, they are always tight live, whatever it was they were playing.


i was hoping they would play 'VinterNoll2', although they never really play it anymore... but just for me...
and they did play it yesterdayyyyyyy :D :D :D

check out for VinterNoll2 & Musik Non Stop here:

http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=168562507


and their fabled '747' - one of the best tracks ever if you ask me.
(unfortunately the english version which isn't quite on par with the original. anyway, musically it's the same):

Very good song, always gets me nodding and bopping and moving and everything!

I love the beat in that one. Listened to The Cure last night while trying to sleep, found out that it was nearly impossible with there being so many awesome songs that make me want to dance. The one that can put me to sleep would be "HAPPY THE MAN" because it sounds like a rainforest.

For me it's All Cats Are Grey-- it doesn't exactly put me to sleep because I love it too much, but it does put me into a sort of stupor.... feeling sort of suspended in space...you know?
Listening to now -- The Shins, Wincing the Night Away. Cheers me up!

Not only is the song a fantastic example of how wonderful and outstanding she is as an artist, the cover art shows how she can be both sensual and silly at the same time...I love the earth in her hands and the dunce cap...I wonder what she was trying to convey!

i'm glad someone liked it, i think it's really cool "song".  :smth023

definately trippy...   :smth026 mesmerising... is he any relation to the God George Harrison?

hmmm not that i know...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gavin_Harrison

anyway gavin's awesome, certainly one of the best drummers around, one of my favorite musicians at the moment. (http://www.clubprotege.com/forum/images/smilies/bowdown.gif)
i'm totally captivated by his playing :shock:  - and listening to musicians like him.... uuuhmmm it makes me wish that the cure had bothered to auction someone like him back then in the 90s... aaaarrrggh. :roll: 
he's currently drumming with "maybe the best band on the planet right after that certain other band hmm well you know who i mean" Porcupine Tree (sorryyyyy caley...).

if you want to see gavin in action (really worth it imo), you should check out this dvd:

http://www.porcupinetree.com/discography.details.cfm?albumid=118

(http://www.levykauppax.fi/cover/normal/1/16/16620.jpg)

i know it's really bold to say so but it might be the best live dvd i've seen so far. especially gavin's playing makes my jaw drop...  :shock:


i searched youtube for some of the best clips from the dvd but of course they get removed all the time because of the copyrights...
all i could find now was 'Train's:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzlDr6aKEH4

unfortunately not so much gavin there on this track but otherwise worth watching. and some funny bits included: just watch around 4 minutes how steven breaks a guitar string on a really "great" moment - "we were doing SO well..."  :lol:

@Marika.
Do you have that dvd? It is truly excellent  ;)

yes i do - otherwise i wouldn't have said it's the best damn live dvd i've ever seen. ;)
although it took me a weirdly long time to get it, i don't know why. i only just bought it a few days ago.  :oops:

i've always been into live videos/dvds (both official and nonofficial) but i admit that i quite rarely watch many of them all through on one single sitting - even the best ones i usually watch in several parts/in bits and pieces (maybe i lack some basic concentrational skills or something...). anyway, this one has made a strange exception: i've watched it all through on three days in a row now.... and that's just not at all normal for me. so all i can think of is that it must be pretty good, i suppose... but the musicianship on this performance is simply so exceptional, on all fronts.  :shock:

Iam listening to Kate Miller-Heidke at moment, first time i heard this i hated it !!

Second time i saw this link on t.v. and was really amazed, around 1:27 her voice trips me totally and at the
end where she screams.

I find her very interesting, very different, interesting, hard to describe,
But i thought her like Cindy Lauper cross Kate Bush (and opera) when i first heard her.?  would like some feed back, what
you think, anyone ?

Iam not sure about the eccentuated accent, but i really love her bold type of singing, and her vocal range.
I havent heard all of her songs, but was captivated with this one.

I'm trying to listen to a band called the "DIAGRAM BROTHERS" but Pandora will not let me skip enough songs to find them (the other day I heard a few tunes by them I liked, and now Pandora is completely steering away from them in order to play some completely off-topic songs that don't belong...

I started a station for weirdish post-punk/goth/new wave bands like Sex Gang Children or Wall Of Voodoo, and now it's started playing completely random songs that don't even fit the category!!!

Oh wells, I figure it out.  :smth001

ronald McDonald, (clown suit) with the alice cooper make up, and then his neck exploded with black blood, ?

anyhoo  lol madness,  um funny stuff like the off-tap drumming though.  :smth023
but voices r easy to get sick of- with alot of vocalists, unless they can change alot. If you know what i mean. that guy
reminds me of trying to do a 'sexpistols' thing. `the voice i mean.   luv the music.

_hope didnt offend anyone, know stuff all about ASF, heard them a few times, ages ago., so, assumed an honest response
was wanted  :?  just noticed my karma went down suddenly, ahh fluck it, ehh still sounds how it sounds to me.  :twisted:

I used to love New Order.. i have their music videos form the 80's, but there are only a few songs I actually enjoy. they were so part of the music of the time. I must confess when I was a teenager, i had a poster of them on my wall, next to The Cure, duran duran Pseudo echo and the Eurythmics!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPFVlLfDxeA     Sweet memories this song, and after the lyrics ~'am i ever gonna see your face again' the crowd

we would yell "no way, get fuked, fuk off"  really qwick, awsum song,  going through my head last night, so happy to hear it,   Wow  been 20 years  :rocker

this song is '76- i was 4 then  :lol:  but the Angels were kicked it for ages  

Saw them once in city, did a gig that was unapproved and at time was so cool, so loud, police were there, went for almost an hour before some arsie pulled the plug- too disturbing for
all the office workers, apparently  :roll: around '83-ish

~there are better versions of this song, But those flares seriously crack me up, and the naked looking drummer too  :shock: .
But seriously i love seeing this look in someones eyes- like 'yeh i know exactly what iam doing, so confident'  :P

Just pulled out a book of discs I haven't opened in probably 4 years.  A few disks have me puzzled and wondering wtf I was thinking spending money on such crap.  But then I happened upon my techno discs.  Okay, I'm not much into techno these days, but was really getting into it in 2000 or so while living in Korea.  So, lots of memories with some of these discs. 

First up is Robert Miles 'Dreamland'.  What a fantastic album!  If you enjoy melodic trance, do yourself a favor and check this album out.

I used to work for B&W, so these were freebies. :-D
Still a wonderful pair of speakers though & with 2 Aura PA 200 power amps driving them (1 for each speaker) & a Cambridge Audio pre amp, the end result is effectively the source & nothing else.

Brilliant movie about the 'castrato's' in the 17th century Italian society.
Non-existant today,( castrato's),  the movie & soundtrack had to rely on reinventing a castrato's voice, using 2 opera singers. The original range for the castrato's voice was as much as three and a half octaves!!

Highly recommended viewing and listening to !! +++++AAAA

NEW MODEL ARMY
@ 2007-11-10 helsinki, nosturi


GET ME OUT

get up early every morning
just to put your make up on
the wardrobe's full of useless clothes
your winter coats are gone
the jackal pack is feeding
the motorway sweeps down
the council tries to bribe the rich
just to stay in town

get me out
get me out of this place
get me out of this trap
get me out of my brain

ysidro down to melbourne
the pressure starts to build
the bullets fly at random
when you least expect they will
everybody feels guilty
so anyone can pay
i'm just surprised it doesn't happen every bloody day

get me out...

so here come the nineties
the temperature is rising
i cannot seem to loose the stains
when I wash my hands
one world is rising
one world is dying
and one has got it's precious head
buried in the sand
 
get me out...




(something that describes my feeling tonight, as it's the final day of the holidays and it'll be back to work tomorrow morning.
aaahhh somebody please get me out of here...! :x)

You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can't hear what your saying
When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons
Now I've got that feeling once again
I can't explain, you would not understand
This is not how I am
I have become comfortably numb

"My girl wants to party all the time, party all the time, party all the tiiiiiime!"

Why does everyone seem to think that song sucks? It sounds pretty cool to me, and Eddie Murphy is a good singer!  :-D

----

I will now listen to SLOW CHILDREN. Maybe you don't know them, they are pretty obscure.

In the wake of all the obscure post-punk outfits...there was this little eccentric band.

I don't think it sucks.  It's a fun song  :)  Certainly better than some Bruce Willis harmonica stuff.  Now, what about another Eddie cut, "Boogie In your Butt"?   :lol:

and Kermit the Frog covering Creep

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1K8t3BtNaw&feature=related

Yeah, it's a cheeser of a music night  :P

other sad kermit "classics": the NIN covers ('hurt' and 'something i can't never have') are... i was going to say "funny" but maybe i'll quote his myspace description and say "excruciatingly painful"! :P

http://www.myspace.com/sadkermit


and he totally rapes cohen's 'hallejulah' - on some days it can be sort of hilarious but on some other days i can't help feeling kind of deeply offended by that kermit version. just because jeff buckley's version is one of those songs i feel very very emotionally attached to.

so if you might feel the need to wipe the green frog-slime off your face, go to purify yourself and listen to jeff's version here:

http://www.myspace.com/jeffbuckley

jeff was awesome. there's an artist i can say i do miss a lot. :cry:


i heard there was a secret chord
that david played and it pleased the lord
but you don't really care for music, do you
well it goes like this the fourth, the fifth
the minor fall and the major lift
the baffled king composing hallelujah

hallelujah...

well your faith was strong but you needed proof
you saw her bathing on the roof
her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
she tied you to her kitchen chair
she broke your throne and she cut your hair
and from your lips she drew the hallelujah

hallelujah...

baby i've been here before
i've seen this room and i've walked this floor
i used to live alone before i knew you
i've seen your flag on the marble arch
but love is not a victory march
it's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

hallelujah...

well there was a time when you let me know
what's really going on below
but now you never show that to me do you
but remember when i moved in you
and the holy dove was moving too
and every breath we drew was hallelujah

well, maybe there's a god above
but all i've ever learned from love
was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
it's not a cry that you hear at night
it's not somebody who's seen the light
it's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

hallelujah...

Armed with a wilful disregard for all the usual musical trappings, the pair aim to create music that is truly unique yet open and accessible to all.
With influences ranging from the best in modern experimental, post-rock and drone music such as Boards Of Canada, Explosions In The e Sky, Godspeed You Black Emperor!, vidnaObmana, Bass Communion and Aphex Twin through to the forefathers of ambient and electronica including Robert Fripp, Neu!, Tangerine Dream and Pink Floyd, whilst taking many shades of prog, kraut and rock along the way, the breadth and scope of the band is broad and eclectic.

i never understood the "holiness" of the beatles. i had a music teacher in high school who stuffed beatles down ours throats all the time, made us sing 'michelle' and 'in my life' over and over again, every lesson, every year so i seem to recollect. if we watched something from tv we watched some beatles documentary. if we played some band stuff we had to play 'obladi oblada'... etc. etc.
dear god he just made me hate the beatles. (actually i wouldn't be surprised if he did made the whole class hate the beatles. :smth023)

but maybe i should actually thank him for it, because i can now dislike them without any regrets - i simply don't like most of their music, nor do i think it's really THAT amazing, composition-wise.
hugely overrated imo. maybe they achieved something as a group (well, of course they did - i'm not saying it's the worst group ever or anything). but especially some solo stuff of their former members... i mean things like that 'liverpool "oratorio"' by paul mccartney - dear lord, that's just plain embarrassing. :oops: it's just so poor. sorry but imo people should stick to they own field, onto something they know something about and not think they can do just about anything just because they happened to have been knighted or something. :roll:

well, now I am going to put MY 2 cents worth in re the BEATLES...my older siblings loved them, and I was so happy to have their music around me when I was young...and yeah, so WHAT if some of their lyrics aren't full of soul-filled meaning...you know, when I hear their music, it takes me back to a much safer and happier world, where music didn't drive people to slit their throats or those of others... where I could play in the street without fear of being taken by a sexual deviate...where people actually SMILED at each other, and neighbours would hang over the fence for a chat..where people could travel overseas without the fear of being slain by terrorists...  the Beatles were excellent, for those of us who grew up with them... and we remember them with happiness... not just for their music, but for the world they, and we, were a part of..

i never understood the "holiness" of the beatles.

I realize the discussion is over, but since I was one of the instigators I'd just like to wrap it up by saying that I agree with the fact that they've been sanctified and made into something bigger than they actually were -- I don't have a Beatles shrine in my house, but I love their music, that's all. (The solo stuff I don't like either, jb, with very few exceptions.)

Now, they're not really something I'd listen to normally, but for some reason I really dig their music, even the fluffier stuff. It's got a kind of creepy vibe to some of it, almost "too happy"...very cute and dreamy.

They only released one album, but they are just the right kind of quirky to catch my attention!

Check them out: Here's Strawberry Switchblade with the song "LET HER GO". Watch their odd movements and poses! lol...

LOL!! Oops!  Sorry, didn't mean to make you all wet yourselves with the offensive name.  :shock:  Hmmm, guess I should've used their nickname (RevCo).  Anyway, they're a Chicago Industrial band (Al Jourgensen from Ministry & others). Probably not your cup 'o tea I'm guessin'.  :lol:

SIOUXSIE & THE BANSHEES ~ ISRAEL  :rocker

THAT HAS GOT TO BE ONE OF MY FAAAAAAAAVORITE Siouxsie song!!!
I love the guitar and basslines, and the way her voice echoes "isreal...isreal..." at the beginning...vibes galore.

Right now I just listened to something happy and poppy to cheer me up, New Radicals' "You Get What You Give".

I love the lyrics, "Don't give up, you've got a reason to live." There's something I needed to hear. It's not the kind of stuff I usually listen to, but since its such a lonely hum-drum day, I thought I should spruce things up a bit with an old favorite from my childhood. :D


NOW listening to "Bela Lugosi's Dead"...cliche, eh? But I still really love it, and I still feel really ominous listening to it. I wish they had a 30-minute cut, that way I could put it on a loop and it would serve me as ambience in my room... 8)

Love it. Although 'Spellbound' is my personal favourite Siouxsie and The Banshees song, hey do you have Downside Up (the 4-disc box of B-Sides?) It's well worth it. There are so many great tracks on there.

Oh, Bela Lugosi's Dead is thrilling! After all these years it still can send shivers down spines. I also have the Nouvelle Vague cover, check it out if you haven't already. Nouvelle Vague also do a cover of The Cure's 'A Forest'.  :smth020

Cyndi holds bad memories for me.
I used to have my NAD3020 amp beside my bed & every night I'd put all my loose change on top of it.
My (then) GF decided one evening to play She's So Unusual & I thought it was too quiet.
So being a man (ie. very stupid) I turned it up to max & there was a flash & a smoke plume from the amp & then.....silence.
6pence in copper coins had dropped in through the vent & shorted the thing out :shock:
Cost me 80 quid to fix it. :evil:

I was jamming out to some CRASS (even though I don't agree with their statements much...) and I really like their style. It's really fun stuff, to pogo-around to, it's like the definition of punk rock for me (what I think of in my head when I hear the words "Punk"...that fast, upbeat stuff with the thick british vocals)

I actually might like them better than The Clash, and it was the tune "BATA MOTEL" from their album PENIS ENVY that sold me...Such power! :rocker

"I've got 54321,
I've got a red pair of high-heels on,
Tumble me over, it doesn't take much,
Tumble me over, tumble me, push!

It's ridiculously good, especially for being a collection of mostly b-sides. Obvious a-side quality to most of them.

The track I'm listening to right now: New Day! The way he screams "new day" to the music hits home every time. It's a whole story of agony wrapped in two words...hard to explain. Just listen.

I don't know a lot of these bands either and I'm only 25, I guess it depends where you live and what you have access to. Although iTunes is helping a lot of people discover new bands with their iStore. Check out 'The Daysleepers'. They are an incredible new band from New York who are so dreamy and addictive. Their myspace page has a free song to download and about 6 to listen to. And they have two EP's available on iTunes. I seem to be into a lot of shoegaze music at the moment... think Mazzy Star, Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine, Thrushes, Celebration, Alcian Blue... check out my myspace page at
www.myspace.com/idontblameyou
have a look at my top friends who are bands and see if you like them! They all have songs to listen to :)

very impressive tigermilk! Thanks for that, I have listened to a couple of tracks from some of the artists you have there...excellent! I'll listen to more when I have a little more time up my sleeve, but really likes some of them!
Now, without trying to appear too daft...what is "shoegaze" music?? It conjures up staring at ones feet whilst dancing..?? 
Title: Re: Currently Listening to
Post by: tigermilk on April 27, 2008, 06:26:32
The name was coined in a review in "Sounds" of a concert that the singer read lyrics taped to the floor throughout the gig. The term was picked up by the New Musical Express, who used it as a reference to the tendency of the bands' guitarists to stare at their feet (or their effects pedals, these pedals create the reverb and distortion sounds), seemingly deep in concentration, while playing. Melody Maker preferred the more staid term The Scene That Celebrates Itself, referring to the habit which the bands had of attending gigs of other shoegazing bands, and often moonlighting in each other's bands. The shoegazing sound featured extensive use of guitar effects, and indistinguishable vocal melodies that blended into the creative noise of the guitars. Common musical elements in shoegazing are distortion (aka "fuzzbox"), droning riffs and a "wall of sound" from noisy guitars. Typically, two distorted rhythm guitars are played together to give an amorphous quality to the sound. Another part of shoegaze was "Dream pop". It was a more ambient and abstract take on folk and pop music. It was pioneered by Cocteau Twins (who are my second favourite all-time band after The Cure) and This Mortal Coil, who took advantages of the improvements in studio technology in the previous decades to create a new strain of pop music with a hazy, ethereal sound. Dream Pop proved to be highly influential on the shoegazing scene that emerged in the early nineties, and certain acts straddle the two styles, though shoegaze can be distinguished by its noisier, psychedelic sound. I can send you some mix CDs if you'd like?

Yeah, thanks a bunch tigermilk! I've been wondering about shoegazing, thought it might have something to do with shy, eccentric indie bands wanting to come off as asocial outsiders (I love indie bands, don't get me wrong)....

I can send you some mix CDs if you'd like?

they'll be playing two festivals here in july/august and i'll surely be there.

the new album is pretty good, although i'm more into the older stuff like 'isola'.
but the new songs translated very well live, even better than i expected, actually.

And now I'm older see it face to face
And now I'm older gotta get up clean the place

And I was green, greener than the hill
Where the flowers grew and the sun shone still
Now I'm darker than the deepest sea
Just hand me down, give me a place to be

And I was strong, strong in the sun

Now I'm weaker than the palest blue

Nope, not gonna listen to that today, I'm not up for another crying session.

i continued from kate to jeff buckley and that didn't turn out to be the most cheerful choice either...

isn't it! for me that one track alone puts him up there among the really great artists, even if he never wrote/recorded anything else than that.
one of albsolutely favorite tracks.

i never really got them earlier, although i tried a few times. but just went to see them on a festival last weekend and that was a revelation.
they played as the last band of a two-day festival and i was already on the verge of hypothermia since the weather was just complete crap and we'd been standing in wind and rain for two days, with temperatures barely 15 C (which is/was seriously unnaturally autumn-ish, considering it's only the beginning of august!).
but nevermind the weather, these guys really saved the day. :smth035

Agreed there. Although probably I don't like the Floyd enough to be called a fan. Anyway, except for 'Wish You Were Here', I think I like more or less most of their stuff until 'The Final Cut'. Although even in that period they could be really boring, sometimes. By the way, my favourite Floyd track is probably "Atom Heart Mother", that 23 minute rock+classical+avantgarde thing from 1970. It could be called "pretentious", "over-ambitious" or something like that, but I think they do an admirable job there.. A truly haunting song.

talking about pink floyd, does anyone have this?:

http://www.play.com/Music/CD/4-/3511313/Oh-By-the-Way/Product.html

i'd be mainly curious to know if the verison in the boxset are the same remastered editions as the ones that have been released individually, or something else?
it's just that i'm pretty hesitant to buy ANY emastered editions anymore, because of the fear of getting some volume destroyed crap - i'd rather stick to old vinyls that upgrade (read: downgrade) them for badly remastered cd editions.

not that pink floyd should be the first band out there with whom one should fear utter remastering catastrophy. one would like to believe it's well done job. but i've lost my faith in trusting the band's name & (old) reputation in this matter (mainly thanks to the cure's recent releases).
so any info would be welcome.

well in some cases i do like the idea of 'complete works': to have everything in one box in case you might need it, instead of having piles of individual discs/vinyls.
and perhaps with some bands i think it's reasonable to own the complete output just for some self-educational purposes/for one's personal archives, even though part of it was not in one's top 5 (or top 50, or top -50...).

OK, I can understand that practical kind of argument. That way, if there is a fire in the house, for instance, you can just grab the box and run away with it, instead of having to run though the whole collection to decide which 3 albums are your favourites... ;) :-D

Yes, i think they are mediocre. Too radio-friendly and lacking in real new ideas... And I do think Roger Waters was the main driving force behind the Floyd, when he left the band lost its edge (or whatever had remained of it by that time). Anyway, it's not that Waters' solo albums are masterpieces (at least not the first two), so maybe if he had continued with the band things wouldn't be much better...

i do think his solo ventures do have a few gems here and there but they are a quality rollercoaster, i agree. they lack solidness, that's true. but even on the solo albums i think at his best moments he's still very good...

Well, I don't think it's hilarious. Curious, maybe. But I don't think there is any sort of general consensus that 'Pros and Cons" is a masterpiece or anything like it. And the same goes for those two Guilmour-era Floyd albums... So, I don't think I'm blaspheming here, or anything.  ;)

Anyway, I want to add a few thoughts to what I've said before.
There are a few good thinks about late Floyd and solo Waters: I like the concepts, the care they have in devising this whole story to bring together all the songs in a coherent whole. That's been a Floyd feature for a long long time now and that is a quality that I think they didn't lose.
Also, a few of the songs on those albums are good. Or at least parts of the songs. For instance, "Learning to fly" might be a commercial mainstream pop/rock song devised for radio play, but I cannot deny that the chorus has remained in my head since I heard it for the first time, and from time to time I find myself "singing" it in my mind. And I could give other examples of this kind (I would have to check them again first, though, since I haven't heard the in a long time...)

However, I also think that this latter music from Floyd and Waters lacks the power and inventiveness of their best years. They have just become mainstream stadium rock acts, with nothing new to add to the musical world. Also, I think that David Guilmour's solos stink! I mean it! That guitar tone and playing are truly annoying. He was already boring in the "Wish You Were Here" days and he surely hasn't got any better since...

One last thing: I haven't heard "Amused to Death" and I've read somewhere that it is considered by some fans as Roger Waters' best solo album. So I might be missing something here.

What can I say, I'll take Animals (or Ummagumma, or More, or Meddle) over Momentary Lapse anyday. MLOR does nothing for me. It never surprises me. I don't know Division Bell enough to express an opinion.

Oh well. Enough said.
I know it's over - still I cling
I don't know where else I can go
Oh ...
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
See, the sea wants to take me
The knife wants to slit me
Do you think you can help me ?
Sad veiled bride, please be happy
Handsome groom, give her room
Loud, loutish lover, treat her kindly
(Though she needs you
More than she loves you)
And I know it's over - still I cling
I don't know where else I can go
Over and over and over and over
Over and over, la ...
I know it's over
And it never really began
But in my heart it was so real
And you even spoke to me, and said :
"If you're so funny
Then why are you on your own tonight ?
And if you're so clever
Then why are you on your own tonight ?
If you're so very entertaining
Then why are you on your own tonight ?
If you're so very good-looking
Why do you sleep alone tonight ?
I know ...
'Cause tonight is just like any other night
That's why you're on your own tonight
With your triumphs and your charms
While they're in each other's arms..."

It's so easy to laugh
It's so easy to hate
It takes strength to be gentle and kind
Over, over, over, over
It's so easy to laugh
It's so easy to hate
It takes guts to be gentle and kind
Over, over
Love is Natural and Real
But not for you, my love
Not tonight, my love
Love is Natural and Real
But not for such as you and I, my love
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my ...
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can even feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head

Well, I've heard about Reverend Bizarre before, it's the kind of metal band that actually seems to be available on record shops. I haven't checked their sound before, though (that sample you posted here is a bit short). However, i had no idea they were Finnish...

Those are 2 completely different songs by Moon Prophet you posted here. It sounds like 2 different bands!  :shock: One of them is really jazzy ("Kovin lentaen kotiin kaipan"), with a really cool electric piano solo there in the middle. I like it.  ;) The other one has a good trippy rock (?) motive but it would probably take some time from me to like those vocals. Still, I don't hate them, and that's a not-so-bad start, I suppose.

By the way, I really like the guitar playing on Ratto_ja_Lehtisalo_-_Soihdut_Nostakaa (I suppose Ratto_ja_Lehtisalo is the band name and Soihdut_Nost is the song...?  :-D ).
Fluid and kind of spacey - again, there's a clear jazz thing on this one.

ok finally i start getting it a bit more right, what comes to recommendations... ;)


Those are 2 completely different songs by Moon Prophet you posted here. It sounds like 2 different bands!  :shock:

that's true: actually you never know what they do next, what to expect from them. they've done some projects which are closer to some kind of experimental classical music (like on the album 'hymyilevien laivojen satama' = "harbour of smiling ships"). so it can be anything between jazz, folk, progressive rock, classical... they also do performance kind of stuff, and their website is full or writings, art... everything really. i suppose they are truly weird "renessaince people" in that way.


(I suppose Ratto_ja_Lehtisalo is the band name and Soihdut_Nost is the song...?  :-D ).

yes, ilkka rättö is the singer in moon fog prophet, jussi lehtisalo comes from another experimental finnish band called Circle:

not quite. i think it should actually be 'lyhtykuja: loppu' (like here:
http://www.last.fm/music/Kuusumun+Profeetta/_/Lyhtykuja:+loppu)
'lyhtykuja' means something like "the lane of lanterns" and 'loppu' is just "(the) end".

They are awesome.
But only first 3-4 albums are post punk/dark/new wave.
In later years they went a bit pop...

another experimental finnish band called Circle:

http://www.myspace.com/circlefinland



I had already visited that Circle's site... Took the opportunity to check a couple more songs - I like it. All 4 songs displayed there are done in a repetitive style, but in a way that sounds good to me.



another moon fog related project, 'teemu elon puhuvat eläimet' ("teemu ello's talking animals"):

http://www.myspace.com/puhuvatelaimet


I'll tell you one thing: a band that call themselves 'teemu elon puhuvat eläimet' are certainly not planning on having an international career any time soon...  :-D I also liked both songs on that site - and liked the singer's voice, although he is not a great singer. I'm not a fan, though, of the vocal "effects" on the chorus of the first song, and it also appears to me that there are a few things in their music that sound a bit too retro (for instance: those harmony choir voices at the end of the second song).

influences: Cocteau Twins, Bauhaus, The Cure, Brian Eno, Joy Division, Killing Joke, New Order, Slowdive, The Church, Danse Society, Stina Nordenstam, Pj Harvey and many more

but so much bad news lately: the guitarist of Varjo died abruptly in a fire in his home, not very long ago. and just a few weeks before they were supposed to start recording their forth album in october.
the last track he contributed on, 'olet ehkä kuollut', is available for listening on the band's myspace.
ironically, the title of the song means "perhaps you're dead".
a pity. this was a good band and a person that will be widely missed in the local music life.

I'm afraid I don't like Zappa's version. It's got some of those gimmicks (including a tasteless keyboard solo) that he seems to be so adept of and that have never done anything for me.

I like Reijo Taipale's version, though. It has an old time feeling that I find suggestive.

I didn't know that group until now. They are among the pioneers of electronica/industrial, it seems... I find the combination of electronics with string instruments quite interesting and the videos (specially the official one) are good too. I'm just not a fan of the girl's voice... That kind of "operatic" vocals does not much for me.

Taking on the industrial cue, here is probably my favourite band ever, Einstuerzende Neubauten:

Some dark stuff there...


Now listening to:

Virgin Prunes, a weird bunch. As read on wikipedia:

The band consisted of childhood friends of U2's Bono and The Edge. Lypton Village was a "youthful gang" created by Bono, Guggi (Derek Rowan) and Gavin Friday (Fionan Hanvey) in the early 70s, where every member got a new identity and where they could escape from dreary and predictable Dublin life and be anything they wanted to be. It was both lead singers Friday and Guggi who first gave a teenaged Paul Hewson his alter-ego and world-famous moniker "Bono Vox of O'Connell Street," later simply "Bono."


“Jigsaw Mentalama” (a haunting experimental instrumental song)

an excellent group i just discovered! didn't know anything about them but saw them live last weekend as a friend tipped me for it. somehow reminds me of AATT & the likes, i think i might like them even better than AATT.
check it out!

Hadn't heard them before. It sounds good, actually. There seems to be a Tindersticks influence in their sound, which is a good thing, imo.

CLT: Place To Be

When I was younger, younger than before
I never saw the truth hanging from the door
And now I'm older see it face to face
And now I'm older gotta get up clean the place

And I was green, greener than the hill
Where the flowers grew and the sun shone still
Now I'm darker than the deepest sea
Just hand me down, give me a place to be

And I was strong, strong in the sun
I thought I'd see when day is done
Now I'm weaker than the palest blue
Oh, so weak in this need for you



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

I've never been a huge fan (my husband is), but that song is fantastic. I spent a whole summer listening to it over and over again, obsessively.

isn't it! for me that one track alone puts him up there among the really great artists, even if he never wrote/recorded anything else than that.
one of albsolutely favorite tracks.

anyway, a montypythonesque turn...

(i think i have it on repeat :oops:)


i never really got them earlier, although i tried a few times. but just went to see them on a festival last weekend and that was a revelation.
they played as the last band of a two-day festival and i was already on the verge of hypothermia since the weather was just complete crap and we'd been standing in wind and rain for two days, with temperatures barely 15 C (which is/was seriously unnaturally autumn-ish, considering it's only the beginning of august!).
but nevermind the weather, these guys really saved the day. :smth035

i've been listening practically nothing but them for two days now. :eek:



ps. by the way great sound on the opeth albums: the sleeve notes day "produced by steven wilson", that explains it. :smth023 old bob should really do all in his power to hire that guy...


Ha, great to see an Opeth thumbs-up post in here.  ;) Great music and very well produced, I agree. Even though it was already great on both fronts before Steven Wilson started working with them.

Are Opeth the best metal band nowadays? That would be an interesting thing to debate...

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.

Agreed. Five Leaves Left is a great album.

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) :

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.

that's not what i meant. of course there's nothing wrong with that. i myself do listen to everything from 7th century early mediaval church music onwards, so there we go...
i guess i'm just surprised that you'd pick INXS. i always thought they were a very good example of how a good-looking/charismatic frontman can make people forget and forgive the lack of (any exceptional) musical content. they were amazingly popular in the late 80's/early 90's still, but i seriously think they'd never get there without mr hutchence's appearances.
it's not the worst band ever but certainly very shallow one, musically, imo.

i remember seeing a mash-up of britney spears's 'baby one more time' and INXS' 'elegantly wasted' on mtv a couple of years ago. it seemed to work very well - by "well" i mean you actually didn't get the usual "hey wt...?" kind of feeling that you're supposed to get with mash-ups. it just fitted so well together (imo, just because both artists are actually just as shallow) that it could have been one song.
(too bad i don't seem to be able to find a youtube link for it).


Too bad the singer is not longer with us :(

of course. but then again for all i know it happened by his own hand so we can hardly blame anyone for it.

To be honest I didnt know how the singer or band looked like until last year when I purchased the "best of". My first contact was "suicide blonde" in 1993 in the radio, so just audio.

I liked the music, it made me happy, and that's all what counts for me. Don't know about the rest.

But certanly they're not my favourite aussie band. Those are "The Church" :smth023

I think they fit together well because that's a "sexy" (I dont know how to say it) INXS song, with a sexy video from Britney Spears. I dont think the reason is the "shalloweness" or not of the music.

Lilly Allen and The Cure mashup (Lullaby). To me they fit well, and I don't think anyone here is going to say Lullaby is shallow, isn't?

yes but that's not what i tried to say. with that lilly allen & the cure mash-up you do get that "hey wt* is this?  :smth017 :oops: :P" kind of feeling, it's because the artists are so different, their themes so different. i'd even say that even if you didn't really know either one of the artists too well, you still get an idea of two very different "worlds" colliding.
with inxs & britney mash-up you don't get any of that: it could just as well be one and the same song (which means it's actually pretty boring mash-up. anyway). yes, both do have sexy videos but that only enhances the whole point: both are based (solely) on that (=on having sexy videos). take either one and remove that sexy video and neither one has any musical depth of its own.
therefore, it's really shallow stuff.
 
Title: Re: Currently Listening to

I respect your opinion baby, altought I don't agree. INXS has too many good songs. I don't think mediocre bands can make that. And I don't think their sucess was mainly because Hutchence's look.

If we want to talk about bands/artists who are driven by the look, we have plenty of examples like "The New Kids on the Block", "The Back Street Boys", etc.

But I think INXS deserves better :)

Suede "Trash" (1996)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jBVePVwSpg

Oh maybe, maybe it's the clothes we wear,
The tasteless bracelets and the dye in our hair,
Maybe it's our kookiness,
Oh maybe, maybe it's our nowhere towns,
Our nothing places and our cellophane sounds,
Maybe it's our looseness,

But we're trash, you and me,
We're the litter on the breeze,
We're the lovers on the streets,
Just trash, me and you,
It's in everything we do,
It's in everything we do...

Oh maybe, maybe it's the things we say,
The words we've heard and the music we play,
Maybe it's our cheapness,
Or maybe, maybe it's the times we've had,
The lazy days and the crazes and the fads,
Maybe it's our sweetness,

But we're trash, you and me,
We're the litter on the breeze,
We're the lovers on the street,
Just trash, me and you,
It's in everything we do,
It's in everything we do...

Wheel in the Sky (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGbVoDVWZsc) Probably my favorite Journey song. 

i remember reading someone saying (on some youtube comments) how the strange thing about journey songs is that sometimes you don't relaly like some of them and/or they seem to belong to a genre that you're not "supposed to like", but then after a while you just notice that you absolutely love them nevertheless, no matter what. 'wheel in the sky' is a perfect example of such a song for me. when i heard it for a couple of first times i think part of my brain used to tell me i didn't like it - but there's just such musicality in the performance/in the songwriting itself that i simply love it.

this is great: Mother, father (live) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlFVc7qDUog&fmt=18)

(by the way for the longest time i believed the melody around 5:10-> was played with synth/keyboards but it's not, it's a vocal falsetto!)

Neil always puts on a great show, be it solo, with Crazy Horse, Pearl Jam, or some hand-picked musicians.  It is a shame you had to pass  :(  But yes, his ticket prices were crazy high this tour.  I went to a show on the first leg, splurged on got a close seat.  He just came back through, but I opted to sit that one out due to the costly tickets.  Looked to be a fantastic gig.

(I'd put the links for both recordings up on dime only the site is down). 


One of these days I'll get my ass to a Bridge School Benefit show.  Good cause, good tunes, and always a stellar list of musicians.

for me, it's always been the most contradictory DM album. meaning that i've always wanted to like it more than i've actually been able to. if that makes any sense... anyway, it's probably because it has some tracks like 'walking in my shoes' which are without a doubt among the best they ever did - but then it gets followed by something like 'condemnation' which is just god-awfully... awful song.

i love this one too:

My old car keeps breaking down
My new car ain't from Japan
There's already too many Datsuns
In this town.
Another thing that's bugging me
Is this commercial on TV
Says that Detroit can't make good cars any more.
Motor City.
Who's driving my car?
Who's driving my car now?
Who?

My army jeep is still alive
Got locking hubs and four wheel drive
Ain't got no radio, ain't got no mag wheels
Ain't got no digital clock
Ain't got no clock.
The paint job is lookin' blue
The white walls are missing too
But I guess until I get my car back
This will do.
Who's driving my car now?
Who's driving my car now?
Who?
Who's driving my car now?

So true, Mr. Young!  If they could and scaled down their lines/brands as the Japanese have done, perhaps the Big 3 automakers wouldn't be in the situation they've found themselves in.

Indochine - Troisieme Sexe

I remember very well this song. Indochine was very famous in Peru and they gave in 1988 4 sold-out concerts in Lima in a similar place like the Paris Bercy (so, like 15 000 - 20 000 each date). It was the only southamerican country were they played in.

This is their most famous song. I guess many peruvians didn't understand a word of what he was saying. I am glad that, 20 years later, I can recognize most of the parts of the songs :P Enjoy!

The other day I was checking out some list of bands to watch in 2009.  Most didn't do anything for me at all, but this...

White Lies To Lose My Life (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HoURg_JUgI&feature=channel)

Reminds of of She Wants Revenge and The Bravery.  Of course we know who those bands were influenced by  ;)  A much better quality video can been viewed on the band's MySpace page - http://www.myspace.com/whitelies

Oh yeah, it looks like these guys will be supporting The Cure in London this February.

Has anybody seen these guys live?  I'm curious how their show is.  Some upcoming Euro dates are also on their MySpace.

Oh I never saw them live but i have some music with most of the outcomes from Bauhaus including Dalis Car, Tones on Tail, Love and Rockets, The Sinister Ducks and ofcourse Peter Murphy.

It´s great when you came that close to the bands at a concert. I saw Naked Prey at a tiny venue in Norrköping (Sweden) once. We practically sat on the stage (and stole the setlist) and just asked the band for songs. They played and we sang in there with them. Afterward we partied with the band.

One of my favorite videos is Lagartija Nick from the Archive VHS.

Mogwai - 2 Rights Make 1 Wrong

Am I the only one who thinks this song sounds an awful lot like "Breathe" by The Cure? Sure, it's not exactly the same — but there are some eerie similarities, aside from the basic chord progression being the same and such.

Really, I think one could almost sing the lyrics to "Breathe" right over it.

Here's a good version from YouTube:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5q5NOdEgIHQ&fmt=18


This version is better quality, but the instrumentation is a bit different:

i don't mind if people like new order, that's fine. i've no problem with that, nor am i trying to make people agree with me or whatever. none of that.
i was just voicing a personal opinion (because i thought it might be food for conversation), nothing more.

You might be right. And maybe Blue Monday is a little bit of a theft from A Forest. But I kinda like New Order anyway. But it is like it is with taste in music. It´s personal and one kinda like to think that ones own taste is immaculate and flawless. But naturally I didn´t think for one moment that You critizised our liking in NO.

I find that song awesome. This is one of the songs I listened in loop (maybe like 30 or 40 times yesterday). I think is the greatest new order song and love the line "I think tonight I walk alone, find my soul go back home"

I have to disagree about the "uninteresting lyrics" lyrics thing. No way this can be "less intelligent"?:

"I would like a place I could call my own
Have a conversation on the telephone
Wake up every day that would be a start
I would not complain of my wounded heart" (Regret)

Sure JD had influenced many bands, but personally I never liked Ian's voice. Love the drums, the bass, the guitarrs (of course, lyrics too). Still, I prefer the voice of Bernard, and the sound of this awesome band, New Order :)

Well, in music people will never agree, so that's just my view :D

uuuhh no offense david but seriously, are you sure you were not trying to pick one of the most embarrassing pieces of NO lyrics there? :eek:
-> http://curefans.com/index.php/topic,3438.msg22878.html#msg22878
(i have to agree with caley there)

i do think those "telephone" lyrics are almost too embarrassing/unintelligent to be true, to have been written by someone in a serious manner (especially someone who's a native english speaker).


sumner simply cannot sing. i know some other singers who actually sing out of tune a lot of times but they still sound great and charismatic etc. - so it's that i'm bothered by him missing a note here or there. but in fact, he's missing most of the notes all the time and in a pretty dreadful fashion, and in the end his out-of-tuneishness and constant wobblyness is real pain. he simply cannot control his voice, his vocal parts are full of uncontrollable bumps and shifts that no singer should get away with. for a life of me i cannot understand why they didn't get a proper singer.
(and by the way, i'm not a huge JD fan either so it's not an JD vs. NO thing for me. NO is just such an amazing combination of great potential ruined by an amateurish vocalist crooning over it all that i've always found it almost shocking.)
Title: Re: Currently Listening to

Do lyrics need to be complex in order to be good? I just see it as someone who wants to have a simple life, maybe someone who does not worry about important things. That song makes me happy and that's all what counts for me :)

i didn't say the lyrics for 'regret' are crap lyrics because they talk about having a simple life. and neither did i say anything about complex lyrics in general being better than others (or complex subjects). simplicity is beautiful, true - but there is simplicity and simplicity.
the lyrics for 'regret' are simply quite clumsy and the imagery used to describe this simple life is a bit too... simple (but that doesn't mean the idea to describe simple life was dumb - it's not). i mean, "have a conversation on a telephone" - i think it's fair to expect a little bit more effort from whoever it was putting those lyrics together.
that clumsiness make them sound like an unintentional joke and i cannot take them seriously anymore.

That's why the world is great, because you think that way, and lot of NO fans think otherwise. That's rich about humankind, that we can always have our point of view, and "having a conversation in the telephone" can be so meaningful as a J.P. Sartre phrasre, depending the context, and of course, depending the reader/listener ;)

just for the record, i wasn't comparing NO lyrics to sartre or any other literature.
so i am not trying to come across with a message that some "hi-class" literature is always more valuable than something less so. if that's what you are trying to say.
it's not "this vs. that" kind of thing to me. i don't care about such things, really.

I was trying to remember Caley's comments about those lines from 'Regret'.

While they certainly are not great lyrics, I've always looked at them as someone who doesn't want to live the in the spot light.  Like David put it,  a "simple life".  Yes, Sumner could have painted us a better picture there.  But I wouldn't call the lyrics dumb or embarrassing.

And as far as New Order sounding like some Joy Division stuff, it's not uncommon for this sort of thing to happen.  Bands copy their own material all of the time.  Take The Cure.  alt. end/In Your House and The Walk/Never Enough are only a few.  Some bands find a formula or chord progression that works and just stick with it (Linkin Park, AC/DC).  It's not very original.  But hey, you can only piece together notes together in so many ways and play them at X amount of rhythms before they start sounding like something that's been done before.  Should that be considered plagiarism?  Well, let's see what a jury has to say about that (in reference to Coldplay ripping off Joe Satriani).

Yes I agree to that. It´s a really strong kick off of that album. My favorite though, on Impurity is "Eleven Years". The lyrics really speaks to me from that song. I can see myself walking the streets of Norrköping (my hometown for a couple years) and having some similar thoughts.

I actually partied with the band after a concert here in Uppsala (my current hometown) during the late 80´s. They were nice and their regular fans was really something extra.

that's a good one, i agree. 
"Still high on the wire above the hollow darkness
Trying not to look down"

for me, 'purity' is another track that remains a special one for me. i'm not a sentimental kind of person and i dislike artists that are trying to preach something but this one makes it home for me, so to speak.
i'll always remember the performance in i saw here in 2007, after the school shooting incident (http://curefans.com/index.php/topic,4263.msg56433.html#msg56433).
before they played the song, sullivan said:
"...everybody read what this guy (=the shooter) wrote on the internet and it was the same f****** rubbish about you know purity, arian brotherhoods... ehhm, that kind of stuff... (and) it's all one big f****** lie. we've written lots of songs about you know politics and the world and stuff, the most true of all is this one."



...I will always see Brendan at that broken down piano
His fingers thick and red, shaking on the keys
Battered by the years of alcohol and working
Still playing with the faith that never leaves
So sit us down, buy us a drink, tell us a good story
Sing us a song we know to be true
I don't give a damn that I never will be worthy
Fear is the only enemy that I still know

Revolution for ever, succession of the seasons
Within the blood of Nature, all raised to rot and die
This purity is a lie

i'm glad to see a beethoven link here  :D then again, personally i don't enjoy these versions of classical pieces where some dude just has added some strings and vocals (be it synthesizer or real thing) on the original. i suppose they are trying to make it more atmospheric but i think it only works the other way round, it ruins the whole thing. it's like someone took mona lisa and thought "the lady looks ok but the background is kind of dull - now let me paint a better one over the original". which is a sort of crappy idea, i think  :eek:
call me a purist but i like my beethoven served untampered. ;)

To be honest I never knew there was a band called "The Killers" until I saw the Coachella line-up with "The Killers" in the same bigger letters as The Cure. It called my attention, so I did some research. Not bad, but to headline and with the same size of letters as "my" The Cure? Hmmm..

yes they are a bit of a low-key band what comes to "opening up to media" (and maybe a bit unnecessarily so, imo, but it's their choice i suppose).
so far they don't have an official website of their own, just a myspace page.
their agency (www.fullsteamrecords.com) has a short introduction for the band on their list of artists, but other than that i really can't find anything much in english either. sorry. :/

so far i can (only) find a couple of album reviews/live reviews in english:

http://exclaim.ca/musicreviews/generalreview.aspx?csid1=110&csid2=850&fid1=25311

and these short articles in an english language finnish magazine:

http://www.freemagazine.fi/content/view/210/119/

not very much... but i can forward you any other links i might come across.
(there's not even very much about them written in finnish, apart from a few interviews in some magazines i have.)

Thanx! You´re a darling! I found something myself yesterday just after I posted my last entry to You. It was a revue about the re-issue of Jesus vs People and how disappointed the author was of that re-issue. He or she fancied "Motorik Haiku" and thought that the rest of that album was a real setback. He wrote that the only song he had heard before getting his hands on that (beautiful) album was just MH and had hoped for the rest of that album to be in the same way. I myself found the opener "Jesus" better in quadruple.

Btw I just watched "Edos mack" and it was a beautiful little documentary well worth watching and hearring.

Good for You. I will definitively take my chances with them, do they ever come here. I don´t know if R will get bigger than RH for the very same reasons You mentioned in Your blog. I remember another good Finish band from the late 60´s , early 70´s, Wigwam, who never quite make it in the competition with similar band from UK, US and Germany.

I jst saw that Wooden Shjips will play Sweden aswell. Fritz´s Corner in the same row as they play Finland.

ahh the good old wigwam! i think their tragedy actually was that they arrived a bit too late: by the time they were just about to make their international break punk rock was already coming up and major record labels in UK started to kick out lots of prog rock/psychedelic bands - that's why wigwam had to go too.
and then a bit later, their drummer committed suicide and that was pretty much it. :/

too bad, as they were really a great band:

Well I guess You´re right there. I just checked my records an they didn´t get their major label contract with Virgin untill 1975. But they did release some good albums earlier on Love. Didn´t know that about their drummer.

hey glad someone liked it. and yes, they are a finnish band, from Pori. actually i just saw them live tonight, they opened for Kuusumun Profeetta ('Moonfog Prophet') - which is a really awesome band by the way. it's an experimental group, ranging from quiet jazzy stuff to art rock to sort of old style heavy metal-ish.... something. impossible to categorize, really. you never know what they'll do next. their singer is a real character.

I try to locate some place in Sweden to buy their records but didn´t find anything on the net. But I will check Stockholm later this month. I also sent a mail to the band and asked if the record company sells anything via them.

I have to say that I really enjoyed this one. It was better than I expected it to be, although I really wasn't sure what to expect...

But most of all, I must say this is BY FAR the best-sounding album I've heard that's been released in the last 15 years or so. It just has a really nice sound to it, almost vintage in a way. And I don't mean just the instruments themselves, but the production in general. Furthermore, it doesn't suffer from the loudness treatment as much as most other records today do.

Ok... A lot of this has to do with the style of music (music without heavy percussion usually doesn't get hammered so much), but overall it's just a really enjoyable listen — something I can't say about 4:13 Dream, which is tantamount to torture of the ears.  :smth096

If only The Cure (or pretty much anyone else) still released albums that sounded this good, the world would be a much better place!  :smth023

That's strange I heard this full album on the radio, and I wasn't that impressed, the songs couldn't do with me I suspect from a good song, good album.

For me a good song, has to take my attention, from the first second to the last, I want to listen to the song like there's nothing else around my. And I've lost so many times the attention, the lyrics ...

A feeling like, I couldn't say what I was just heared, something like that, hard to explain.  :-D

And I guess that's the reason why I like the Cure-music so much, a lot of songs can give me the feeling I want.

VUK

http://www.myspace.com/vukmusic

CLT  flint in the pines

a really original mix of experimental electronic pop, lucid soaring vocals, mad church organist and something like an east romanian folk singers choir in backing vocals at times. 
ok it sounds almost too odd but it's really beautiful, check it out.

i saw them live some time ago and was really quite impressed.
the current live band consists of:
vuk herself on lead vocals and pump organ(!)
loupine on backing vocals & additional keyboards
janne on drums and percussion

they've just released their new album 'the plains':

(http://www.olivialehti.fi/DesktopModules/Thumbnailer/Thumbnail.ashx?maxwidth=332&src=/Portals/0/pics/musiikki/VUKtheplains.jpg)

fomr the official myspce:

"Vuk is a Finnish-American artist whose unique music carries sonic strains that weave themselves into a rich, colorful tapestry of experimental rock, Balkan vocal music, meticulously layered organ harmonies, exuberantly inventive instrumentation and polyrhythmic walls of Vodou percussion. Her songs explore inner, fictional landscapes sculpted by dreams, sex, trauma, death and spiritual ecstasy. Live, Vuk expands into a percussion-and-organ-driven trio, and the sound of the pump organ takes center stage next to Vuk's startling voice."

'cross the breeze by sonic youth.  :smth020

Did you see that Sonic Youth is touring this summer?  No SoCal dates as of yet.  I think the closest would be Oakland.  I'll be seeing them at the Capitol Hill Block Party in Seattle.  :rocker



yes, i saw that they are touring in support of their new album. :) Have u seen them b4? i saw them once at the wiltern in LA back in 2006. they rocked and i got lee's autograph. i was quite tossed on vodka/7 and said, "this is my first time seeing you guys live, but i did see you on the simpsons!" he laughed and said that he remembered doing that show...

so yeah, there is my drunk sonic youth story, lol.  :smth030

The Prids. http://www.myspace.com/theprids

From last.fm:

Sure, this whole 80’s thing is still going on, but let’s just remember there was more to the 80’s than the Clash and the Thompson Twins. There were many European bands who straddled the lines between post-punk and goth/industrial, as in Clan of Xymox, Trisomie 21, the Cassandra Complex, the Legendary Pink Dots, New Order, etc. The Prids update this sound for the new millennium, with a whole boy-girl interplay that provides a freshness to what they’re trying to do. And considering the boy-girl, David Frederickson and Mistina Keith, were married, then divorced, and still play in this band together, well that gives a whole new meaning to sexual tension.

i admit that i bought it but haven't had time to give it a really proper listen yet. i've listened to it a few times but it was playing a bit on the background and i wasn't relaly able to concentrate enough. i saw them live a while ago and at least there i thought i mostly did like the new material more than 'bad conscience patrol'.
but that was live of course - it wouldn't be the first band in the world which i like more live than on studio.

anyway, 'mysteriously mixed' - that's really a very common problem with a lot of albums these days, unfortunately so.

you'll have time (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9eQ8_T1ytU&fmt=18)

Live life
Live life like you're gonna die
Becasue you're gonna
I hate to be the bearer of bad news
But you're gonna die

Maybe not today or even next year
But before you know it you'll be saying
"Is this all there was?
What was all the fuss?
Why did I bother?"

Now, maybe you won't suffer maybe it's quick
But you'll have time to think
Why did I waste it?
Why didn't I taste it?
You'll have time
Because you're gonna die.

Yes it's gonna happen because it's happened to a lot of people I know
My mother, my father, my loves
The president, the kings and the pope
They all had hope

And they muttered just before they went
Maybe, I won't let go
Live life like you're gonna die
Because you are

Maybe you won't suffer maybe it's quick
But you'll have time to think
Why did I waste it?
Why didn't I taste it?
You'll have time
'Cause you're gonna die

I tell you who else left us
Passed on down to heaven no longer with us
Johnny Cash, JFK, that guy in the Stones
Lou Gehrig, Einstein, and Joey Ramone
Have I convinced you?
Do you read my lips?
This may come as news but it's time
You're gonna die
You're gonna die

By the time you hear this I may well be dead
And you my friend might be next
'Cause we're all gonna die

Yeah, oh maybe you won't suffer and maybe it's quick
But you'll have time to think
Why did I waste it?
Why didn't I taste it?
You'll have time
You'll have time cause you're gonna die
Yes, you're gonna die
You're gonna die, I tell you
You're gonna die
You are gonna die

'Cause maybe you won't suffer maybe it's quick
But you have time to think
Why did I waste it?
Why didn't I taste it?
You'll have time 'cause you're gonna die

Live Life
Life life like you're gonna die
Because you're going to
Oh yes
I hate to be the beater of bad news
But you're gonna die

Maybe not today or even next year
But before you know it you'll be saying
"Is this all there was?
What was all the fuss?
Why did I bother?
Why did I waste it?
Why didn't I taste it?"
You'll have time, baby
You'll have time
'Cause you're gonna die
You are gonna die
Oh yeah

(the sung part in the background)
Y-O-U-apostrophe-R-E-G-O-double-N-A-DIE Die!
You are gonna diiiiiie

hey you definitely need to see them live  - they are really good! i saw then last night, that was a really good show even though their set is only around 70 minutes. i like their live attitude and look and i actually thought the songs work even better live, at least for me it seemed to be so.
upcoming live dates here: http://curefans.com/index.php/topic,6200.new.html#new  unfortunately nothing in sweden this time though.

i only feel a bit disappointed that they are actually playing another finnish concert right now as i write this. i couldn't travel there (another city) because of having to work late today. :(

http://www.rhapsody.com/the-prids/love-zero--2007

EvilSponge review:
Remember Scooby Doo? Loved it? Remember the chase sequences? Now imagine if they'd used Bauhaus as a soundtrack. You're getting warm.

This record has dark leanings for sure but there's nothing remotely cold about The Prids. They're ghost train gothic. They're Halloween indie. Theirs is a rocky kind of horror. Musically, they're garagy post-punk with a dash of surf. But if this is garage, then somebody parked The Mystery Machine in it. Zoiks!

Before going further, be assured we're not talking pastiche here. The Prids are far more Comsat Angels then Cramps. They just aren't afraid of having a good time, and nor are the fans who lap up their live shows. The first thing that strikes me about this band is the interplay between the vocal axis of David Fredrickson and Mistina Keith, guitar and bass respectively. Keith and Fredrickson have a deal of shared personal history that wouldn't be out of place in a Fleetwood Mac biography. It's to their credit, I think, that they still work together so effectively, but tensions permeate this material, especially lyrically.

Keith is also instrumental in the sound The Prids lay down. Against Fredrickson's thin guitar buzz and breathed vocals, Mistina Keith's high, curvaceous bass licks infuse the music with a Vincent Price-like personality. Some of the songs approach familiar territory. Just when I think I'm about to experience a re-working of, say Joy Division's New Dawn Fades (The Glow) or Modern English's Sixteen Days (Back up slow), The Prids will veer stylishly away, often with a deft, surf twang.

It's always useful to have a door into an unfamiliar album, and mine came in the form of the twin peaks that are Like Hearts and Shadow and Shadow. Yet I always hope that such doorways lead to other discoveries and this was certainly one of those albums. More is revealed with every play and my favourite tracks changed as I traveled its learning curve. Right now, I'd find it hard to dislodge the thrilling All That You Want from pole position. Here our estranged lovers crank up the tension until it all goes skyward in a blaze of guitars and synth.

A word also for the drummer Joey Mass too who seems to be following the spatial, Martin Hannett template. What was it Miles Davis once said? "Don't play what's there, play what isn't there." Mass agreed. Perhaps that's why I really like the drums on this record?

Infection, the album's climactic track, comes around too soon. I'm left thirsty for more. Luckily this is the penultimate track. There's still time for the New Order style, spaghetti western elegy Untitled. Once this has drifted away, I'm left reflecting on a real triumph – a terrific album that constantly rewards repeated listening. Any hopes I held of a quick review were dashed! And if it wasn't for those pesky Prids, I would've gotten away with it!

Go unmask this band now.

well it never does but in this case there's no hope at all since that link seems to be sourced from the version with the super-crap distorted audio - that version is pure pain, even without youtube compression.

When I saw Echo in Gothenburgh in the midst of the 80´s they didn´t have no support but played six or seven covers of different bands as a warm-up. That was kind of neat as they did it relly good.

Same thing with the Damned in Stockholm during the same period. I saw them at Draken (The Dragon), an old cinema theater, and instead of using a support act they played the most part of Cures Pornography through the sound system. Pretty neat that to even if it would´ve been even nicer f they covered those songs live themselves.

If I laid down my love
To come to your defense
Would you worry for me
With a pain in your chest?
Could I rely on your faith to be strong
To picked me back up and to push me along?
Tell me

You'll be there in my hour of need
You won't turn me away
Help me out of the life I lead
Remember the promise you made
Remember the promise you made

If I gave you my soul
For a piece of your mind
Would you carry me with you
To the far edge of time?
Could you understand if you found me untrue
Would we become one, or divided in two
Please tell me

You'll be there in my hour of need
You won't turn me away
Help me out of the life I lead
Remember the promise you made
Remember the promise you made

Could I rely on your faith to be strong
To pick me back up and to push me along
Please tell me
You'll be there in my hour of need
You won't turn me away
Help me out of the life I lead
Remember the promise you made

Icehouse - No Promises
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SyBif6w-SiY

a winter palace
from the arabian nights
white waves on an ocean
gems from a golden age

life in your new world
turning round and round
making some sense
where there's no sense at all

no promises
but if you should fall

stars die in the silence
of arabian nights
wind washes the seasons
in these days of a golden age
life in your new world
turning round and round
making some sense
where there's no sense at all

no promises
but if you should fall

I could give you more
than just the shape of things
break every word
begin it all again
your name on a white sheet
pure lace shot with passion
but as love lies
bleeding in your hands
heaven sends you

no promises
of arabian nights
no white waves on an ocean
no gems from a golden age
life in your new world
turning round and round
so make some sense
where there's no sense at all
I give you

no promises
but if you should fall
no promises
but if you should fall
you fall
no promises
but if you should fall
no promises
but if you should fall
you fall

life in your new world
as it turns round and round
no promises
but if you should fall

Joy Division - Love will tear us apart

When routine bites hard
And ambitions are low
And resentment rides high
But emotions won't grow
And we're changing our ways, taking different roads
Then love, love will tears us apart again
Love, love will tears us apart again
Why is the bedroom so cold
You've turned away on your side
Is my timing that flawed?
Our respect run so dry
Yet there's still this appeal that we've kept through our lives
But love, love will tears us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again
You cry out in your sleep
All my failings exposed
And there's a taste in my mouth
As desperation takes hold
Just that something so good just can't function no more
But love, love will tear us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again

Ian Curtis wrote this song when he falled in love with another girl, a belgian girl, while he was married. and I think he quit his wife for this girl. and voila, the reason of the title of the song.

and is truth, love will tear us apart many times... :roll:

we must not be scared of that. things happen or do not happen. it depends also of the circunstances. Ian was touring a lot, he was far from the wife, meeting lot of new people, he was a star... it was just probably question of time that he could fall for someone else. I am sure Ian was not scare of that. He just meet someone else, falled in love. The story of everyday. A very human thing.

In any case the best to keep a relationship going on fine is too avoid that kind of circunstances. Communication, doing different things, is always good.

The Mission - Butterfly On A Wheel

 :smth020

Silver and gold and it's growing cold
Autumn leaves lay as thick as thieves
Shivers down your spine chill you to the bone
'Cos the mandolin wind is the melody that turns
Your heart to stone

The heat of your breath carving shadows on the mist
Every angel has the wish that she's never been kissed

A broken dream haunting in your sleep
And hiding in your smile a secret you must keep
Love cuts you deep

Love breaks the wings of a butterfly on a wheel
Love breaks the wings of a butterfly on a wheel

There's no scarlet in you, lay your veil down for me
As sure as God made wine, you can't wrap your arms
Around a memory
Take warmth from me, cold Autumn winds cut sharp as
a
knife
And in the dark for me, you're the candle flame that
Flickers to life

Love breaks the wings of a butterlfy on a wheel
Love will break the wings of a butterfly on a wheel

Wise men say all is fair in love and war
There's no right or wrong in the design of love
And I could only watch as the wind crushed your wings
Broken and torn crushed like the flower under the snow
And like the flower in spring
Love will rise again to heal your wings

Love heals the wings of a butterfly on a wheel
Love will heal the wings of a butterfly on a wheel

it's not so scary when you already know that to be true anyway.

Well spoken. I like to think of me as a true romantic person that sometimes maybe walks with dreams never ment to come true. But I know that love is out there somewhere. Just gotta find it.

kristian valen w/ morten harket - stay on these roads (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEd4ExIp-rU&fmt=18)

(kristian valen (norwegian comedian and pop star) pretending to be the a-ha singer, then the vocals taken over by the harket himself.
i don't usually like music like this, it's often too cheesy for me. but this is a good song. and it's a nice semi-acoustic version of it.  i never really liked the version that the band played live, it was very different from the original in terms of tempo and rhythm. this one's closer to it.)

Pulp - Do you remember the first time?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61SPFD0rNRo

You say you've got to go home
cos he's sitting on his own again this evening.
I know you're gonna let him bore your pants off again.
Oh God, it's half past eight,
you'll be late.
You say you've never been sure,
though it makes good sense for you to be together.
Still you bought a toy that can reach the places he never goes.
Oh, now it's getting late.
He's so straight.

Do you remember the first time?
I can't remember a worse time.
But you know that we've changed so much since then,
oh yeah,
we've grown.
Now I don't care what you're doing,
no I don't care if you screw him.
Just as long as you save a piece for me,
oh yeah

You say you've got to go home.
Well at least there's someone there that you can talk to.
And you never have to face up to the night on your own.
Jesus, it must be great to be straight.

Time, flowing like a river
Time, beckoning me
Who knows when we shall meet again
If ever
But time
Keeps flowing like a river
To the sea

Goodbye my love, Maybe for forever
Goodbye my love, The tide waits for me
Who knows when we shall meet again
If ever
But time
Keeps flowing like a river (on and on)
To the sea, to the sea
Till it's gone forever
Gone forever
Gone forevermore
Goodbye my friends, Maybe forever
Goodbye my friends, The stars wait for me
Who knows where we shall meet again
If ever

But time
Keeps flowing like a river (on and on)
To the sea, to the sea
Till it's gone forever
Gone forever
Gone forevermore

a really good live band, very professional musicians. great female lead vocals. sort of combination ao froots influences and darker, "old gothic rock" sounds. definitely worth checking out, especially live.

It sounds like he's constipated.  :oops:

here's some more for you: existence (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7TBgJ1m5vg&fmt=18)  :rocker
 


Okay, I went back and listened to the links you provided.  You see, when I made my comment I was listening to them on myspace.  Not sure of the song title, but the singer seemed to be doing his best to sound evil in a Rammstein sort of way (which I dislike).  Thus, my comment above.  When he actually sings, it's not too bad.  The music is good.  That I like quite a bit.  August 25 is still a ways off, but perhaps Project Pitchfork will end up on my concert itinerary.  Still need to listen to them a bit more, though.  

Oh, glad to have provided a bit of humor for you.  You know what they say...laughter is the best medicine.   ;)

not quite sure what to think of it yet. a bit like with DM, i've never liked any placebo album as a whole although they have many strong tracks and they are a good live band for sure.
but at least it seems like molko's singing turning better by time, on this one there's more resonance in his voice than before.

i have a problem with his voice... whenever i hear placebo i think 'good song but i can't stand his voice'

i listened to the first single out of the new album (not sure if it's the best track though) and it's not so bad on there so you must be right about the resonance!

i've always had this same problem too. i was always really quite uninterested in them until i decided to go to see them live a few years ago - i really enjoyed that gig a lot so i somehow got over my problem with his voice too a bit after that. but never completely. i do like some of their older stuff, but i only listen to those songs on live recordings, just because the older the studio material is, the more annoyingly nasal and squeeky his voice sounds to me. anyway, they are quite decent live, worth seeing in any case.

by the way i saw molko saying in some interview lately that the only bands still above them/bigger than them are U2 and rolling stones. eh?

Hey JB,

I didn't know you can appreciate Placebo? Maybe we have more in commen than we think sometimes  :-D

I have it also, my HB bought me it, last Monday 8th of June. I must say, it's the only album from Placebo that I have until now. The first time I saw the clip on MTV from "The Bitter End" (when I was hopefully waiting to see maybe The Cure sometimes  :-D) I thought by myself what a special voice and a beautiful sound and then I discovered the first time Placebo.

The second song I knew was "A song to say goodbye" and then I knew that I could love there music.

From the new album:

I like the songs actually all, but the favorits are: The Never Ending Why , Breathe Underwater, Julien.

I have the album with a 40 min during Making The Album dvd. Really nice to see how they work in the studio.
They have also a new drummer. He's only 22 years old, but WOW for that guy. He comes from California where he was playing in the punk/rock band Evaline. I could write more ... maybe I make better a Placebo topic  :-D

Placebo - Placebo. Current track: 36 Degrees

You got me inspired (as always) and especially after me reading one of Swedens absolutely worst rewievers (markus larsson)totally fistfuck their latest album. This is a guy who just don´t know how to write a modest rewiev. Is there a release form any of those boring Swedish dinosaurs like Håkan Hellström, Ulf Lundell or Hives or any likewise boring international giants like U2, Bruce Springsteen, Rolling Stones or any other band that other fellow rewievers like, like the overhyped Glasvegas you can bet your life on that this guy is there and kisses ass. I once red a rewiev of him inwhere he complaint about the artist given a much too long concert so that he (markus) missed his deadline. He didn´t wrote one single word about the concert itself.

But as he says himself in his latest rewiev about Placebo (see the translation below), he is good to have just as a tool of calibration. I found out that almost everything he dislike is either very interesting or very good. And 95 % of what he preferes is mere crap and mainstream greyscale in my oppinion.

Translation of rewiev from Aftonbladet, June 6:th.

Placebo´s only mission is to show humanity exactly how crappy alternative contemporate white rock from Great Brittain can be. As a low water mark they have been a nessecary point of comparison for six albums now. We have to know how bad popmusic can be and how it sounds at its absolute lowest point just to calibrate our rewievs. And when it comes to this we can really rely on Placebo. When everything comes around it´s all about grown people playing teenagers with cajal make up. “Battle for the Sun" makes all those expectations comes true. Here we have Placebo sending Smashing Pumpkins stiff pale vampire rock straight to the morgue. The music is sterile, stiff and dead.

I think Molko´s voice is the perfect link between P music and their lyrics. It´s funny how different one can think of voices that are a little bit out of the ordinary.

I haven´t heard their latest album yet but I got the first three albums and Meds. After reading markus larssons rewiev (see post above this) I think that I´ll have to get it though.

Add: I just went downtown and bought the "Battle for the Sun" and I think it sounds great after the first listening.

Just listening to The Battle with Placebo for the fifth or sixth time and I have to say that this is a great album. I just realised that it sounds a bit like the latter solo albums of Peter Murphy, atleast that goes for the first five tracks. The rest of the album is more laidback typical Placebo-pop, nice and a bit elegant. I´ve sent a rather harsh mail to that **** Markus Larsson for his ignorant rewiev of this album but of course he didn´t bother to answer.

(http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_E3x-iiTWUcs/SfWMQa8HNMI/AAAAAAAACFs/i0xqRxzlg8M/s400/TP_FA_FRONT_FINAL.jpg)

I stumbled across this blog http://www.djbynar.com/ a week or so ago and have been loving the music this person posts!  :smth020

While the rest of the music industry has found a new best friend in the vocoder and merely continues their long-standing alliance with the synthesizer, The Perfects, a dance-rock band from Baltimore, Maryland, are one of the few that seamlessly meld those futuristic sounds with the melodic core of yesterday. Echoing the works of Duran Duran and The Cure, The Perfects are quickly cultivating a fan-base as rabid as those in the early days of music videos, when their inspirations ruled the airways.

Founding member Ric Peters started the band in 2005. Heading into the studio with Nic Hard in 2006 (The Bravery, The Church), he came back with the self-titled EP that won over critics and new fans alike. 3 years later, The Perfects return with Future Automatic, an album sure to titillate the eardrums and send people to the dance floor, while still maintaining its artistic integrity. After an early leak, Ric Peters decided to follow the footsteps of Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails and make the album free for download. So head over to
http://theperfects.com and give it a listen. If you are looking for dark, Robert Smith-inspired dance rock that combines broodiness and dance beats you'll be in for a treat.

I´m glad for your sake even though I have to admitt I envy you a bit. I love Alpinisms and Iamundernodisguise is a great album opener. But I got the chance to see The Specific Heats now at Kulturhuset in Stockholm, Sweden july 18 together with The Tallest Man on Earth and those two acts are gonna perform between 18.00 and 01.00 (CET) for only $ 10. I´ll guess that there will be other acts and performance during the evening. That´s a nice price if there ever were one.

Btw, there is a nice collection of other band from Ghostly International under the name of "Ghostly Swim" out on cd. School of Seven Bells are represented by "Chain".

Iamundernodisguise is a great album opener.

I was thinking the very same thing.  ;)  I'm a big fun of other bands Benjamin Curtis has been part of (Tripping Daisy, The Secret Machines), but wasn't quite sure what to expect from SVIIB when I first heard about the project.  They present a nice psychedelic dream pop mix like I've never heard.  Oh those vocals are just so dreamy!  :smth020

Sounds like a nice pairing there and at a great price!  The Tallest Man on Earth played Seattle back in March at a dinner theater.  I thought about going and probably should have.  Sometimes I wish money grew on trees and I lived in a forest.  :lol:

Well I guess you´re excused. The Detroit label Sympathy for the Record Industry printed 100 copies of a 7" vinyl (Makers of High Grade Suites - SFTRI 611) containing three songs with Brian Muldoon and Jack White under the name of The Upholsterers in early 2000. BM is not a very famous musicsian even though his band, The Muldoons did some opening acts for The White Stripes during the early 2000´s. That band (The Muldoons) containd his two sons on guitar and vocals and they were just very young teenagers at the time. BM played the drums. BM also has a garage punk outfit, The Tin Knockers together with JW´s elder brother Eddie Gillis but I have no idea of what they sounds like.

Anyway I sent you a sample from that 7" as an mp3 over your email.

The Specific Heats - Carl Sagan. This song reminds me of Robert Wrattens latter project, Trembling Blue Stars.

Gonna see them live july 18th for the very nice prize of $10. Feels like the 60´s to put up that kind of money.

http://www.myspace.com/thespecificheats

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQjxPGCubXU Crappy sound but what the heck. I´ll guess that when you play a Mosrite you´re bound to make atleast one cover of RAMONES!

The other act is a Swedish guy (Kristian Mattsson) calls himself The Tallest Man on Earth. It´s gonna be well spent money.
