    thanks @pedant I hadn’t realised its World Suicide Day.

    A massive issue and one that I won’t make light of (if anything I post has lyrics or tone that somehow jars with anyone its not intentional at all – blame my cack-handedness or tin ear).

    y’know, I remember the Inspirals but (you guessed it) I didn’t listen to the lyrics.
    (when they played…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave – ah, interesting…
    Maybe its memory but it could be as the sound is now through different amps and speakers and possibly even slightly sped up videos.

    However, I also believe that pulse may affect this too!

    ;¬)

    And yes, Bananarama were ridiculous in many ways (many of them the right ways!).

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    but yeah…. basslines when its locked in with rhythm guitar and vocal

    good times

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    so – ya got me thinking of great bass playing (I can’t now work out why so…. whaddeva).

    What’s great about this (for me) is that the bass is really warm and sinousy when it can be and the vocal, horns et al are dry as hell.

    Carole Kaye is awesome.

    Perhaps unsurprisingly when I googled “dirty funky…[Read more]

    @thane16

    Isaac Hayes had 14 kids??!??!?

    hmm – probably just sound-checks….

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    Hi all – ooh – looks like I mucked up my last posting (either browser open too long or too many songs!)

    So this is me re-writing and apologies if I’ve forgotten anyone I meant to reply to in the previous one.

    @Thane16 – Voice of the Beehive. In *every* way something I should listen to more ;¬)
    REM too (though I can only do a song or two at a…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    hmm – I wonder if it was I who led us down to this lascivious level?

    Syzzers – I should have said that “tighter than a gnat’s chuff” is probably more suited to the Mess than the Captain’s table.

    [ahem]

    But as I think I’ve said before I never really listened to lyrics until I became part of this forum. In fact its probably @pedant who has made…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    oh ffs the pair of you.

    Either get a room or rut somewhere else.

    @roger429 – its really interesting that you want more CGI in the episodes. Its not something that people often say, so I think its quite an interesting take.
    If you’d like (and your story about the antenna is incredible) please do add your experience to everyone else’s about how…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    So syzzrs @thane16 – you wonderfully linked to Sha Na Na at their Woodstock finest (if anyone missed it scroll up now!!).

    Slightly amped up 50’s Rock n Roll (and the amps aren’t the hardware!).
    First thoughts went here, but then….

    …while thinking of something else, I thought of this

    Which made me…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    so… been reading the Kebab thread and… I know this ain’t right but its what I have.
    And maybe what I wanted to find was something optimistic.
    Instead I keep coming back to ‘this is what it is’.

    I remember this when it was first played and smirked at the Manic’s over populating a lyric with syllables.
    Because that’s easy. Smirking is…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    @thane16 – syzygy – yes yes yes for Sha Na Na !!
    Oooooh Mountain – not heard them before – thanks for this, my 60’s/70’s knowledge is sporadic!

    @pedant – I know the song but not this performance (need to google harder)!!
    It feels mellower than the one in my head – and none the worse for it!
    Oh and I saw that news about the couple – that was…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    but if you’d rather something closer to “I am a MAN and here is my instrument!” then, well, I did like this when I first heard it in a “wow!” way

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    Now in terms of Woodstock, I think I may still be ‘behind’ in my posting of acts from each day but then…. well, time kinda got hazy man, and well, what is Time man and hey look….. a cloud….

    {ahem}

    {cough}

    I’ll try these.
    If my memory serves they hadn’t played a gig together before this….

    @cathannabel – indeed! I think I might try and find an even longer version of what came before and after!!

    Syzygy – aw that’s great from Joplin.
    I’m not sure which the first version I heard of this song was, but I have a fondness for this version from a really great album I bought in my teens.
    Big Mama Thornton namechecks Janis though you get the…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    syzygy @thane16 – Creedence Clearwater Revival !!

    Yes Yes a million times yes!
    Fantastic song and fantastic performance – I haven’t seen that before!

    So – I meant to post this yesterday(!) oops.

    For the second day of Woodstock I’ll post these (though other great bands were on too).
    Usually I’d say that drum solos and (god forbid) bass solos are…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    and yes for the pedantic I know I’ll be posting something on Sunday too….

    Woodstock – Day 1 (Friday)
    So there’ll be others who know the story of Woodstock better than I (me not yet born and in a different country!).
    An amazing list of artists and surprise! – LOADS of people turn up!
    I mean just look at that lineup

    ffs.

    for my opener I’ll take Richie Havens (who I think did…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    Fifty years ago today, three days of Woodstock began.
    My thought was that I’d go through the album and pick something that’s maybe overlooked.

    Maybe this is overlooked because it is slight, but I kinda love it anyway!

    And lord knows we need a pickmeup in these times.

    I did originally post this from…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    ooh – is it @thane16 ‘s birthday?

    Happy Birthday Puro!

    And you’re having to spend it in a hotel!!
    Hope you’re not having too much in the way of upheaval and that everything gets sorted at home.

  • Whisht replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    ha ha @thane16 – don’t worry I don’t beat myself up too much, honestly.

    And those ladieez can have me all they want – I’m just not a doctor!

    Just seen film Arrival for first time and even with ad breaks etc its still left me with teary eyes.
    And this is a lovely place to share that.
