    When the wife and I were young, free and single I remember picking her up in the car one night and she started looking through the cassettes (!) in the glove box, saying she was interested in what kind of music I liked (she liked disco :() Randomly she selected The Scream by Siouxsie and the Banshees, she put it in the player and the look on her face was priceless - like I'd asked her to shit in her hands and clap.

    My point? People like different music, so giving each other grief over artists/albums etc. etc. is daft. When we did the 'best' song thingy last year on here I think a dirge by Coldplay came out on top, I was appalled but them's the breaks!


    By the way, I'm listening to a fair bit of Last Dinner Party, I don't like all their stuff (1 album) but the 2 singles have been proper ear worms.

    I'd never heard of these but a quick Google and three minutes or so of Youtube and I like the single, Nothing Matters. A further Google and I see they're playing Melbourne next Monday but there's only crap seats left which is a shame. The Missus would've loved that..

    From the plethora of video on Youtube I've seen they're excellent live, as you say though given their minuscule catalogue (so far) most videos seem to be either Nothing Matters or the excellent Sinner.

    Big thank you to a colleague with same name as me bar last letter, he took a clip I recorded off Horror Xtra (now Legend Xtra) for upcoming programmes (a few months back), removed the audio of the film/series clips to leave only the background music and after he found out via Shazam what it is.......



    (don't see a lot of gain doing it that way, but it is a cracking song and would hate to think of numbnuts missing out because it doesn't have a big embedded video so they pass it by)

    Teddy Swim I've Tried Everything But Therapy Pt. 1. I knew nothing about this fella ,until I heard 'I Lose Control' ,so I downloaded it and lets say I've played it more than once since then. It's a good album ,with maybe a few tracks that have still yet to be embedded in my head. Saying that, this song below has set up residence.

    Trust me I'm much the same in terms of "best songs" type polls and when they do on the radio and question whether anyone who raves about say Borehemian Crapsody like it is so special and they listen to it all the time, wouldn't be near my top 500 but perhaps top 10 of overhyped crap

    not even sure the trotted out "ahead of its time" nonsense washes, 1975 so Sparks "This Town Ain't Big Enough for Both Of Us" as on the amazing Kick Ass soundtrack released in April 1974 preceded it, and frankly the jerky style was so "popular" most don't copy it

    May as well load up some Kick Ass tunes...

    If we're looking at the Kick-Ass soundtrack:

    trying to give Kasabians new stuff a listen, but I do feel that they are now more a Serge side project rather than how they were with Tom Meighan involved.

    Not saying that their new stuff is bad, but its a stark contrast to the last stuff they put out

    Michael Jackson - Give Into Me, from the Dangerous album. was/still is an exceptional album, way better then Prince's 1999 & Purple Rain albums + another 8 Prince albums.

    The Black Dahlia Murder's first new music since the tragic death of frontman Trevor Strnad.

    Classic TBDM fare!

    Recorded some of this years Isle of Wight Festival which has been diluted down but shown on Sky Arts .

    65 mins of The Prodigy which turned out to be only 40 mins of their set .

    Nice Lazer tribute to Keith Flint , music was great as was light show but missed KF's stage presence .

    Feeder , 35 mins which again was diluted down to around 20 mins , did all the classics , band looked old but I suppose it's not the 90's anymore .

    I tried to record Johnny Marr & The Pretenders but for some reason it didn't happen .

    Today sees McFly , Simple Minds & Green Day as main 3 highlights , no thanks .

    Just listened to a song that I'd inadvertently downloaded (must have been on a compilation album) by a band that don't even have a Wiki page. They're called Storm Orchestra, they hail from Paris and they have a couple of singles available on YT. Lots of energy, short, sharp three minute punky kind of vibe and they've recently earned a record deal with Mascot records. I likey..
