    @whisht – i’m glad you enjoyed the caravan palace! they have new music coming sometime this year, and i’ll be making whatever effort is needed to see them in concert, if they tour the states, again. from what i’ve seen on youchube, they put on quite an energetic show… hopefully i can keep up!

    as for zappa, i bought ‘jazz from hell’ on cassette…[Read more]

    Now that’s a story.

    My nearest is a fifth-former, when I was in 6th and in charge of the stage sound booth, trying to trick me into playing Plaistow Patricia to morning assembly. It hadn’t occurred to the tedious little shit that I was totally familiar with it (someone else can post it though1).

    Besides, I already chosen this which…[Read more]

    @pedant @geoffers @whisht

    I have heard this too! But it wasn’t a grocery store -or any ‘real’ store but a chiropractor and physio’s HQ. The music they played was that 20th century stuff mum loves. Not nice listening & a lot of screechy violins. Maybe they think if the patients can deal with the music they can handle the pain of a ‘cracked back.’…[Read more]

    The thing you have to keep asking yourselves is “How likely is this to turn up on a grocery store mix tape”?

  • thane16 replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    @geoffers That’s terrific! I haven’t experienced much ’90s music? But I will now look at much more. Actually Mum would reckon that she’s heard a lot of music from the 90s which she also likes a lot: I didn’t know that! The APP sounds like a terrific band and in listening to some last night (during the tennis) I think it’s like Pink Floyd but not…[Read more]

    @whisht – the alan parsons project has been my fav band since i heard that song on the radio, as a kid, which is unusual, because they used multiple lead singers throughout their career. so it was difficult to identify new songs of theirs when they were released! their catalog is worth digging into, they’re a bit pink floyd “lite.” but the mid…[Read more]

    With a lot of grog on hand (she’s allowed now on account of her teeth…long story).

    We have crossed Tom and Mr Parson’s off the list (but it looks like there’s no apostrophe). Unfortunately. They were awesome songs and I personally haven’t heard them before. Through the door I gave her a bar piece (a sentence of music) and she…[Read more]

    The Music Man is Back! it is thane speaking. Mum is excited to see this thread hopping!!

    She was telling in @pedant in Email Bursts (that is what we call them) about how at grocery shops she heard a song from the 1980S which had the words “forever” in it. 24 hours later she thinks it is Kiss song ‘Forever’  which is hilarious because…[Read more]

  • @whisht

    Heh. People forget just how experimental that period from about 1968 to about 1973 was (although I think part of the issue here is that it is a TV mix, which was notoriously difficult in those days).

    Any excuse:

    Nice. There’s one more though:

    Just back from holiday and caught up with episode 9, and what a corker it was. I loved this. Taking the fairy tale right back to its grizzly folkloric roots. (I really enjoyed your post detailing the fairy tale elements @bluesqueakpip.)

    I can’t believe how quickly my reservations about this series have melted.

    @arbutus

    Thank you v3ry much! I liked the 2nd one the best. You can see them all having fun. I have no clue to understanding this music as I mainly like punk, rock 80s rock and then the people from the 50s but this is very interesting music. My head is nodding 🙂  Yeah, it’s nodding! And my foot too!

    @whisht

    Happy dreams dude.

    On Heaven 17 Lookee! It’s Justin Beiber time travelling with eyeliner.

    Well, no, not really, as that’s offensive to musicians.

    Great doco!  @Cathannabel I think I posted a comment on the Sofa or Pub about Human League/Wikipedia/Bowie etc. But I could have imagined posting it (that happens a bit).

    @rob me too! Last week and lost the whole hog. Luckily, a mate had brought me a new (very small, mind) coffee plunger with a sweet bean. I had just come home and fancied a good brew. So, rob it calmed me down. We have merlo coffee here? And if you purchase a large tin of it (as I did about 3 months ago) they give you a free coffee AND a $5 voucher…[Read more]

    Let’s go s little more oblique:

    if you mean that short click at about 2.10, I like to think it is the sound of Morricone’s baton accidentally striking the stand. Thus imagined, it positively enhances the live performance feel of it all!
