What Are You Listening To At The Moment?


Recommended Posts

Waaaow, that is some playlist! Don't know Joseph Arthur (???) but adore Psychic TV and Spacemen 3 and 'Heart Of The Congos' is one of my fave lps ever.... 'Here's Tom With The Weather' is buried somewhere in The Record Room, but I'm off to dig it out right now!!!

 

Only heard Joseph Arthur pretty recently myself, I've like what I've heard so far. Aye, that Congos' album is a beauty been listening to it a fair bit this summer.

 

LIstening at the moment to a playlist of:

 

Jonathan Fire* Eater - Give Me Daughters

 

The Delgados - Under Canvas Under Wraps

 

Frankie & The Heartstrings - Tender

 

Bob Dylan - Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues

 

Love - August

 

Some people never go crazy, what truly horrible lifes they must live - Charles Bukowski

More comedy gold from the Michelin Man who probably spent his day penning ads for slurry pits.

Suprised at that, thought it'd have been right up your street. B)

 

 

Nice tip of the hat to the main man Arthur Lee!

 

Neither could I. Not a patch on HMS Fable in my opinion

 

Its maybe cause I heard Here's Tom before I heard HMS Fable, that I like it better.

 

Thats How Strong My Love Is - The Creation

 

Fire - Television

 

Radio Free Europe - REM

 

Blood In My Eyes - The Mississippi Sheiks

 

Bryan Maclean - Barber John

Red Hot Chili Peppers - I'm With You

 

Not their best album, but very enjoyable, energetic, better than a lot of what was on either disc of Stadium Arcadium!

"In a country lacerated by the sharp shards of broken brown-eyed promises, in a world bent low by the burden of disease, war and the price of Thunderbird, who is left to make full account of God and Britain's depleted moral mini bar? Yes, it's the surprising adventures of me, Sir Digby Chicken Caesar!"

You think so Neil? I'm not so sure. I'm openly pretty fanatical about the Chili Peppers but upon my first listen of I'm With You I was pretty disappointed, although after a few listens its grown on me. Bit disappointed in the new guitarist, Klinghoffer, for me he leaves a bit of a hole in the creative process. There's not one song that's openly identifiable through a riff like Scar Tissue, Otherside, Snow, Under the Bridge etc - you can tell it's mainly been Flea coming to the table with a bassline and Klinghoffer's tried to ghost around it.

 

Still, some good songs on there and despite what people say about them becoming 'too mainstream' or 'too radio friendly', whatever the **** that means, for a band that will be in their 50s next year they continue to explore new avenues and try new things. It's a new beginning for them, I think they've still got a lot to offer.

No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind.

Buy the ticket, take the ride...

Oh, I know your fanatical Shaun, more than me for sure! :) I think Frusciante's absence is very noticeable, sceptical about the new guy myself, but I like the direction their taking. Doesn't feel samey like a lot of bands who are kicking on a bit sound.

 

I've been reading bits and pieces over the last week and Flea reckons they've discovered a new energy which I actually think comes across on the album, no songs that feel iconic, standout your right, give it time though. But some amazing tracks. They may be entering their 50s, but these guys keep super fit and I've got a feeling the live dates are going to be pretty special, roll on the SECC in November! :)

Listen to this Deego and tell me what you think, honestly.

 

I'm not really getting it tbh. When I stop listening to it I keep hearing 90s dance music in my head.

Must just be my age then. <_>

 

No, no mate I agree! The Drums are very "New Order, synth, 80's, electronica" influenced!!

 

In fact fecking brilliant if you ask me! :mellow:

Listened to the Summertime e.p a while back and thought they had a 80s indie sound, not heard their album though.

 

Can't get enough of U.N.P.O.C album at the moment.
