Title: Discovered / rediscovered music thread
Post by: JayzusB.Christ on 16 April, 2009, 12:12:23 pm
Just rediscovered The Prodigy, after looking at the link on the Dodgy Videos thread. Once my absolute favourite live act, and had a trawl through YouTube and I'd forgotten how good they were. Haven't listened to their new stuff properly yet, but by Christ nobody makes dance tunes like No Good (Start the Dance) any more.  I have very fond, if hazy, memories of going mental on dancefloors and muddy fields to The Prodigy. I even liked that rohypnol song that was slagged off on the other thread.

Just discovered Alphaville, who completely passed me by earlier in life. Quite a few shit songs to wade through, but some of their stuff, such as Big in Japan and Sounds Like a Melody (if that's the correct title), is pure 80's synth-cheese perfection.  I also like their later stuff, having a guilty liking for trashy Euro-techno that I don't go round shouting about.

By the way, feel free to disagree with anyone's choices in this thread, but please do not make this a thread for muso-snobs to slag off other people for their musical taste (or lack thereof). There are far too many of them in the real world. We're bigger than that, folks.

I'm finding that Spotify is a great way to discover/rediscover music. It's a good cure for the musical droughts I'd suffer from when I wouldn't hear any new stuff for ages. At the moment I overdose on certain bands for days and then move on to another. So far it's been: The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Eugenuis, Dandy Warhols, Julian Cope, Les Savy Fav, Smashing Pumpkins, Black Lips, Mercury Rev, Blind Melon, ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead (Tharg mentioned he is a fan of theirs coincidentally just when I got into them).

An absolute rip-snorter that. Don't know if I prefer it to Out of Space or not. At university, my flatmate purchased the single Fire and played it at full blast maybe twenty or thirty times a day for a fortnight: even now the intro makes me feel a little bit sick.

I got a Rough Trade "Indiepop" compilation in a charity shop recently. Fifty tracks of tweeness with a distorted edge from the 80s and 90s, split about fifty-fifty between jingly rubbish and jangly genius.

However, the main thing I've discovered recently is how bloody amazing and genuinely rock'n'roll Van Morrison was when he was a lad. The guitar sound and his voice on the chorus of this just blow me away: Well here it comes (http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwBrM8bniW8)
Plus I love youtube videos which just have the single spinning round on the turntable.

i found YOU TUBE plus ITUNES to be a killer combination  for rediscovering great music.

i have recently limited myself to a usd $100 a month, as i was getting carried away.
rediscovered my passion for Neil diamond who has returned to form and that the genuis suggested purchase list is reading my inner mind.

prodigy, i missed them in my travels, first time around, but downloaded a few essentails recently,so much outstanding music out there,
currently my music collectoin stands a poultry 43gig

next time i see steve jobs drive by i shall say I BOUGHT HIM THAT CAR!

I have just discovered The Gossip, I can't turn them off, I think I may in fact love Beth Ditto her voice is incredible

I have recently rediscovered Rage Against the Machine, which is the best thing in the world to dance around your kitchen to when people are peeing you off!
Title: Re: Discovered / rediscovered music thread
Post by: JayzusB.Christ on 17 April, 2009, 12:55:00 pm
Funny you should mention Rage Against The Machine, I used to like them and jumped around thrashing and flailing to their live gigs a couple of times, but a friend of mine stuck them on in his car the other day and I just couldn't get into them at all.  Maybe I'm just getting old.
I still like going a bit mental on dance floors, but probably due to certain chemical experiences I have long since packed in, I only enjoy dancing to electronic-type dance music. (Which is not to say that dance music is the only music I like. It's just the only music I dance to.) And on that subject, I recently rediscovered both the KLF and Utah Saints, and yesterday found Usura on YouTube.

Devon's Daddy, you've probably seen it before, but this thread offers a good way of combining the delights of YouTube and iTunes.

my goodness. FSA are a perpetual favourite of mine. calling them "post" or "space" rock really doesn't do justice to their homespun beauty. It's when you put a record on and you think your turntable's overloading but it's actually because they recorded it with a guitar pluggged into a stereo amp so that's the beauty of noise.

Every now and then I rediscover Captain Beefheart. Most of the later stuff was dodgy but the early stuff I have to play sparingly. Gives me a dose of what the Daily Mail referred to as "iPoditis" – when music gets stuck in your bonce. His music has jammed so hard in my head in the past it has prevented me from sleeping.

Here's a band I'd heard of but never actually heard until last weekend. Stars of the Lid. If you like FSA, I think they'll be up right up your alley. I think this track's lovely but if it doesn't grab you in the first minute there's not much point continuing as it doesn't change much. http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vlZvBYW7ns

Thanks for the tip as i had never heard of them before but its good late night listening.

You might like this as this band were excellent .I love their guitar sound and great tunes and they are virtually forgotten now which is a shame.

How were they? I've got all Tyla's solo albums, he must have released 17-18 of them in about 10 years. They first few are ace, then he gets a bit experimental and they range from OK to abysmal. He seems to be hitting form again now though and some of the new stuff is really good.

This is just getting creepy now Peter: "This World Is Not My Home" is the song I want played at my funeral and I've seriously considered organising a break to New York based around their touring schedule. The 4AD albums are magic, but I still pick up anything that gets proper distribution over here and there's always one or two tracks that scale the heights. So far I've been able to resist splashing out on the masses of self-indulgent noodling they put out on their own label. So far.

I remember liking "Quick as Rainbows", but that's a different side to KoD and you're right about the guitar sound. Lovely. As for Cranes, I quite like the music but, unfortunately, I've never been able to stand her voice.

First heard Jeffrey Lewis about 2 years ago on Marc Riley's show on Radio 6 (a brillant show to discover good new music) and have loved his stuff ever since. He recenty did a lecture tour discussing Watchmen as he wrote his Uni discertation on it. Talk about my world's colliding!

Through a combination of Ebay and scouring various second hand record shops, I'm slowly replacing a lot of Rock/Metal LP's/CD's from the 80's, that I had to sell when I was an impoverished student.
I've redicovered some forgotten gems. Quite a few of the said albums fall under the Sleaze/Hair metal category. Notable titles include Love/Hate's near masterpiece, 'Black Out In The Red Room'-listening to it 20 years on, you get the sense that the band really should of been as big as Guns 'n' Roses, if grunge hadn't pretty much killed of the scene. The Electric Boy's, 'Funk-O-Metal-Carpet Ride is another notable release, with it's funky groves, fat bass sound and some nice Beatlesesque melodies.
Salty Dog's eponymous album is a slab of Zeppelinesque goodness and a real treasure that I discovered on a recent trip to Birmingham, in a secondhand record store, for the princely sum of £1, was a pristine vinyl copy of Saraya's debut album, featuring some uber powerful female vocals, in a Joan Jett style with some real catchy hooks.
Also been rekindling my appreciation of all things Megadeth, having just purchase Mustaine's latest opus, 'Endgame'.
It's like 1987 all over again!

Sheffield lack of diversity in its town centre record shops is lamentable (and I avoid Jack's a lot of the time which I'm might have to stop even though its always been very pricey)

Amen to that! A superb group, criminally overlooked at the time. The second album, Wasted in America, contains what for me is their greatest moment, and the song to live your life by: Don't Fuck With Me.

For some reason, Tool had totally passed me by back in the day, and I have just discovered them now- very good indeed.

More than a few, that's for sure!

In retrospect, maybe finishing on Husker Du's Diane (and it's haunting refrain of "I think I'll rape you and kill you instead") was a mistake.

I've got one Ballboy album somewhere. It's good in a misanthropic sort of way.

BBC Sound of 2010: The longlist
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/8395789.stm

"Fifteen of the best rising music stars have been named on the longlist for the BBC's Sound of 2010.
The list is designed to highlight the most exciting musical talent for the coming year and the artists have been picked by 165 UK-based tastemakers."

The haircuts, the sounds. So, sooo eighties. I don't get it. As far as I'm concerned that was a crap decade for music. Why copy eighties music? Someone tell these kids to stop it. They're bringing back too many bad memories of my misspent youth, or more like unspent youth.

I've recently been re-discovering the joys of Idlewild (pub jukebox), Verruca Salt (flicking through my 'My Music' folder), Dandy Warhols (re-arranging my cd collection), Scott Walker (the 60's stuff, not the recent ham-slapping stuff). Oh and The Horror's first album

Some nice eclectic indie pop plays in the background as I put out my plea to the forum:

I am addicted to cover versions. The more bizarre the better. From Paul Anka's "Jump" to Cake's "Wuthering Heights" (bested only by the Ukelele Orchestra of GB's version) to the rather splendid "The Sun Always Shines on TV" by Atrocity.

Feed my addiction!!! Any great covers out there I should know about??

Been listening to Yoko Kanno's soundtrack work over the last few days. Awesome talent. It's like somebody said to her 'we just need some backing music for Japanese Death Cartoons' and she said ' Sorry - English isn't my first language', marched into a studio with a load of muso friends and then knocked out a few albums worth of stuff. These cuts puts charting records to shame!

The Tori Amos album "strange little girl" is all covers, including Boomtown Rats' "Don't like Mondays" and 10cc's "I'm not in love" amongst others.

Also, there's a 2-disc album called simply "Uncovered" that has some gems, such as "Ghost Town"by the Prodigy and "Our freinds electric" by Groove Armada.

(and I always quite liked Olivia Newton John's version of Jolene, but I was very young at the time!)

Yup- Cornell did Hunger Strike when we saw him on his last tour.
Mother LOve Bone has, for me anyway, dated a lot more than the Temple stuff.

The Sisters were always good for a cover. Their version of Emma was a favourite in my teenage bedroom. For Brel, you can't go wrong with The Sensational Alex Harvey Band's version of Next (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqx5j-FuqeI).

Here's a couple that are radically different from the originals. One sublime, one ridiculous.
Schneider TM - There is a Light that Never Goes Out (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4UMpEHa_Ns)
Los Colorados - Hot & Cold (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1upZz3a-7iM)

Some people are, like Johnny Cash, really good at interpreting other people's songs.
Will Oldham - The Same Love Made Me Laugh (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKnH49e7Qas)
   - I Will Always Love You (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gua63u7hqWc)
Camille O'Sullivan - The Ship Song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSzfZTVHHyg)
Lemonheads - Luka (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CW9Pv0WT2K0) because I couldn't find Different Drum.

Back in the days when it was still hilarious for indie bands to do thrashy covers of pop hits, Galaxie 500 had the genius idea of doing slowed down versions of alternative classics instead. This is their version of Submission by The Sex Pistols (http://www.last.fm/music/Galaxie+500/Peel+Sessions/submission+%28sex+pistols%29)

In return for suggestions so far, I can highly recommend:

Michelle Shocked singing Johnny Cash's One Piece at a Time
The Fall's version of There's a Ghost In My House
Arctic Monkeys rather splendidly covering Girls Aloud's Love Machine (worth a download)

and all of the stuff that Led Zeppelin used to play to pad out their live gigs when they didn't have much of their own material....

Seu Jorge's Bowie covers are pure joy - as is Senor Coconut's Smoke on the Water.

Oh! Love by the Cult! Good call, Static; I actually don't believe I have a copy in a format I can play at the moment - I only ever had it on tape and really should have bought the vinyl...
M.
Love is about as close to a perfect album as you can get. Went to see them live a few months ago and they played the entire album (25th anniversary of the release tour deeley)
There is a very sexy CD package you can get for not a lot of money
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Love-Omnibus-Cult/dp/B002GU605G/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1265300458&sr=8-1
or a slightly less sexy but still awesome version if you want to pay less
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Love-Expanded-Cult/dp/B002F3BP8Q/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1265300458&sr=8-3

I have both as I have to have everything they release :D

Oh yeah momma, just heard a 1993 Sterolab session track on Marc Riley just now...to the vinyl collection...

I was a fan of them as well and had quite a few of their albums that were all coloured vinyl plus singles but they went when i lost my entire record collection which pissed me off no end.Saw them play live 3 times as well.

Another voice to add to the appreciation of The Cult - Love as well as i used to play that album to death and i still listen to it every so often.I liked their previous material going back to when they were The Southern Death Cult plus a lot of their material after Love wasnt bad either and they were excellent live.

Another album with with no filler is Who else by Jeff Beck that i rediscovered recently.I have had to buy another copy as my previous copy is stuck inside my SACD/DVD player that inexplicably died the other night.

Never really got on with Stereolab beyond their first couple of singles.

For anyone else who misses the shoegazing sound of their youth, I've picked up a couple of Asobi Seksu albums and found them to be an excellent modern substitute. They also have a prety Japanese girl who sings. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0Gbue7idgY)

If you dont know her music try Warm Leatherette and Nightclubbing and Living My Life - Island Records.

Those are her most well known albums.

Just as recommendable is Slave To The Rythmn which is a Trevor Horn produced album with reworkings of Slave To The Rythmn.Very highly recommended by me anyway.

Inside Story is a largely forgotten and overlooked 1986 Nile Rodgers produced Lp and i thinks its very good.

I have just rediscovered 'Original Sin' by Theatre of Hate, thanks to the excellent film drama biography of Boy George, Worried About the Boy, on BBC2 Sunday night. Seeing them rehearsing it in the film made us think we'd heard it recently in a club and maybe on CD. It turns out it was on a goth compilation we took on a long road trip when we did our Christmas visiting, and yeah, I reckon I did hear it on a night out since.

It was bugging me last night that I couldn't even conjure up the tune in my head and all I kept getting was Do You Believe in the Westworld, so I had to ransack the CD racks in two rooms to find what I was looking for (and that was a bit of a feat because the back room was a complete tip already).

Theatre of Hate had passed me by. I enjoyed this. Especially the first minute. The production sound is so indelibly of its time: the drums a crude imititation of the echoing emptiness Martin Hannett gave Joy Division and the sharpness of the guitar quite delicious in anticipation of the crushing inevitability of life and choruses.

If you are enjoying rediscovering Theatre Of hate you should also check out Kirk Brandon's later work with Spear of Destiny. the music is not as harsh as theatre of hate but still has the same edge in the lyrics & his stage perforemance on sonjgs  such as LIberator & Prisoner of Love of the ablbum One Eyes Jack

That album was really well produced which is part of the reason it has lasted so well.Its actually the only album of theres that i like.I am a bit of a geek or a nerd when it comes to producers and mixing and production values.

*

I found this track quite by accident and i clicked on it out of curiosity and i cant stop listening to it.Its very simple and repetitive and it works really well.I think they were an Irish band around in the late 80s but i dont know anything else about them.

Having not listened to any music since the onset of children, I was pleasently suprised to find a box of cassettes when I was looking through comics. Brought a couple in the car and played(yes my car is that old). One stood out, great song. A House, Endless Art.

The Jesus and Mary Chain - Psychocandy.

I was always a Darklands man, myself. Never understood how the Mary Chain never got co-opted into the goth movement, TBH -- Darklands is, officially, GAF.

Going to have to dust off all my New Model Army stuff in advance of their 30th anniversary tour in October. Rather looking forward to it, given that their 20th anniversary gig at Rock City ranks as one of my favourite gigs of all time.

I'm sure I've said before that there's a point at a great gig where the music becomes a solvent and the individual dissolves, literally loses the sense of self within this great, heaving mass… in this case, you actually could feel the floor rise and fall under 1500 united footfalls, and by the time they played 'Vengeance'…

I love me some live music.

Cheers!

The talk of A-House reminded me of their song- which I can't find called "Always the last to know" I think

"so and so
told such and such...
how come I
am always the last to know?"

Stuck in my memory, not so much for the song but for the video which had the girl singer( later a kids TV presenter) jiggling most pleasantly in the background

I rediscovered this track.Actually i didnt rediscover it at all as i listen it all the time as its so good and as a result of an impulsive fit of impetuousness i am posting it in this thread.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nG0_zJfcgkhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nG0_zJfcgk

Timeless perfect production on this track

3.48 into the track the sound of the snare drum changes with an added echo/reverb effect which reminds me of Motown records [most probably sampled from a Fairlight - listening again it sounds like a tambourine sound on top of the drum] and then the theres the sound of the crash symbal which sounds like "Tsssssssss".

This track is widely known as one of or the best produced rock tracks ever which is amazing when its mostly synthetic and created with a Fairlight.

Real instruments + synths and studio trickery create bliss.
Genius

Crystal Castles are a band I'm ambivalent towards. They've done a couple of cracking tracks and a whole lot of boring dross. However, their new single with Fat Boab Smith is a cracker. At heart it's the kind of perky, lovelorn pop song The Cure used to do so well with a fashionable veneer of digital noise. Lovely

I wish he would stop with these collaborations now though, he needs to get working on the next album, some live shows wouldn't go amiss either. No need to try stay relevant with all these young un's Bob, just get your arse back on stage and in the recording studio  :D

I was buying books in an Oxfam shop the other day and I was invited to browse a basket of newly donated CDs in the back room to see if there were any I wanted or if I could sort out any I recognized for them to prioritize to be put in the shop (there were mostly quite obscure). I picked out about a dozen I thought would sell for between 99p and £3.99.

Among them was an album by Andrew W.K. How very odd. I'd forgotten he ever existed. I shudder at the memory of it.

Andrew WK appeared right at the time when i was still reading the music press and it was at this point that contemporary music and the music press started to really go downhill and i started losing interest in it all.

I never heard any Andrew WK but he was splashed all over the music press [as the next big thing] which was becoming increasingly juvenile.I think one track was "Party till you puke" which was something i had done myself a few times which meant i didnt feel the need to listen to a song about it.

Oddly enough my morning shuffle session (tee hee) led to a bit of a Stabbing Westward rediscovery. I loved them, 'Wither, Blister, Burn and Peel' is a classic album for me and flows perfectly from start to finish. Everything after that was a bit patchy ('Darkest Days' is brilliant but bloated and the self-titled album just didn't sound like the same band) and I don't actually own anything before it. But if it's 'Wither...' then it's all win. Still remember seeing them support White Zombie as a nipper, now that was a gig!

I always find instrumental music is good for listening to while drawing and writing etc as it helps my concentration.

You cant go wrong with any of their music and after watching the live footage of their 2007 world tour they just run rings round bands that are a quarter of their age and whats more they are so tight as musicians that they dont play to a setlist.

In a flash I ordered 'Here come the 1,2,3s' and 'Here come the a,b,c's' and at least one of um blooming great. The little un went to bed happy after watching the DVD up to 'High Five' while dad listened to the rest quite happily while doing the dishes.

Also I've been humming 'Zombified' by Alien Sex Fiend all afternoon. The much improved dance version of course, which, unlike the original, has something approaching a tune.

"Looked out my window, what did I see? A crack in the sky with hand reaching down to me. All the nightmares came today and it looks as though they're here to stay" Fuckin great!

That's a great record right there. Though I'm going to be a bit controversial and say I always preferred the Bob Mould's more mainstream work with Sugar

Hüsker Dü 'Warehouse: Songs and stories' and 'Candy Apple Grey' (only because that is pretty much all there is on Spotify.)
Stupid SST! One of the great woes of modern life is looking up a band on Spotify only to find the album you really wanted to hear is on a record label which hasn't signed up.

Warehouse is, unsurprisingly, a bit of a ragbag but I have a lot of time for Candy Apple Grey despite how unrepresentative it is. Ultimately, you can't beat New Day Rising.
Though I'm going to be a bit controversial and say I always preferred the Bob Mould's more mainstream work with Sugar.
Sugar were alright but I don't really remember much beyond the second album. If you've never heard it, I thought Grant Hart's first solo album - Intolerance - was a fabulous record and quite different from his previous stuff. Lots of piano, organ and moothie. It's a pity how dreadful the Nova Mob album was.

Other drummers who have released surprisingly good solo albums include Jimmy Chamberlin.

As for discovered music, it's been literate songs for me of late. Ten years late to the party, I finally got The Magnetic Fields' 69 Love Songs and what a marvellous record it is. Pretty much every track has a nice couplet or something that makes you smile, although the whole package may be too arch for some. The Book of Love (is long and boring) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkjXr9SrzQE)

Edinburgh's own Withered Hand are pretty good too. Love in the Time of Ecstacy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ch1WAwfuEX8)

Dont know if this would be discovered or rediscovered as i never listened to them at all in the eighties(was more of a JAM, SMITHS, HOUSEMARTINS person) but i have recently found myself listening to Japan!!! I have to say i thought they were pretentious pricks in the eighties but i think some of the stuff they did is rather good. Its a classic example of appreciating something as you grow older......i think!!!

A friend took me to see a band called Vessels last night and I was pretty blown away. On last night's evidence I'd definitely consider myself a fan.

They mainly do quite proggy, slightly mathy instrumental stuff like this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvtnqwHZVVE (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvtnqwHZVVE)

...but occasionally use vocals on stuff such as this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBu1oxc356k (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBu1oxc356k)

Brilliant so they are, and lovely guys to boot.

Went to see Terrorvision last night, they were the first band I ever went to see (I was 13 I think) so they definitely go in the rediscovered category!

They were fantastic, it was great to see that despite them getting on a bit (I was initially shocked to see Leigh Marklew has gone entirely bald) they were still just as exuberant and lively as always, if not more so. A proper good time sing-a-long-a-gig, I've been humming their tunes all morning now.

Tool are my favorite band hands down, but whenever they release an album I'm usually so enamoured with it that I don't really touch the previous albums much, preferring to just live inside the latest album until they're good enough to grant me another one (usually a few years down the line).

So for that reason sticking on 'Lateralus' today has blown my mind afresh and counts as rediscovered music for me. An absolute masterpiece.

I was going through all the 7 inch singles in the local charity shop and it was all rubbish and then all of a sudden amongst all of that was a copy of Its Going To Happen - The Undertones which was a surprise as i used to love that song and i had it as a 7 inch single when i was about 14-15 or so but i had totally forgotten about the song and that i used to have until i found it again.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Di5IANs95BM (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Di5IANs95BM)

Another is Chelsea Girl - Simple Minds.I got a lot of mine and my brothers records out of storage after years and years of being in storage and a 7 inch single of this was amongst them but annoyingly it was just the sleeve without the single.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDQFGis_u8Y (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDQFGis_u8Y)


Going through the same pile of records i found a copy of Scary Monsters - David Bowie that was even still in a plastic record sleeve which had the price label [Special Price - 5.99] from a long gone record shop in Hastings called The Disc Jockey which brought back memories.

Another track i used to play incessantly that i found amongst them was this :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylOCIP54PIQ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylOCIP54PIQ)

which i had as the B side to This Is Not A Love Song.

Finally i found my scruffy copy of this :

http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:Is716KpjhvMJ:www.discogs.com/Various-Earcom-1/release/709281+earcom+1&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=uk&client=firefox-a&source=www.google.co.uk (http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:Is716KpjhvMJ:www.discogs.com/Various-Earcom-1/release/709281+earcom+1&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=uk&client=firefox-a&source=www.google.co.uk)

When i was aged about 14-16yrs myself and a friend always used to listen to this LP and we used to play this track in particular over and over and we would be in fits of laughter over it  :lol: :

I've really got into a few metal bands lately. Namely Mastodon, Baroness and Kylesa. I'm not much of a metal fan usually apart from classic stuff like Sabbath and Zeppelin. Queens of the Stone Age is about the only modern metal band I liked previously.

I love this stuff! Really heavy but tuneful and complicated at the same time.

As I'm a bit of a metal novice, based on the above bands, can anyone recommend any other bands you think I might like?

Ah, my favourite subject! Aside from 2000ad of course. Love all of them, Mastodon and Kylesa are both stunning live. Not seen Baroness but I really like the blue/red albums.

Based on Mastodon, check out High on Fire I would say.

Based on Queens of the Stone Age, you MUST hear Kyuss, Josh Homme's old band. Bit older but it's just essential. Homme won't tour with them, which is a shame but meh, they were amazing live recently (playing as Kyuss Lives!)

As for other good metal of a similar kind, I'd recommend Isis and Tool. If you can handle a wee bit heavier, check out Meshuggah. Oh, also Shrinebuilder, amazing first album (kind of doom/stoner/very sabbathy) and one of the best things I've ever seen live).

As for other good metal of a similar kind, I'd recommend Isis and Tool. If you can handle a wee bit heavier, check out Meshuggah. Oh, also Shrinebuilder, amazing first album (kind of doom/stoner/very sabbathy) and one of the best things I've ever seen live).

\m/  :D

Nice one! I'll have a root around YouTube later tonight and see if any of those bands tickles my fancy.

I've listened to Kyuss a bit but I didn't dig it as much as Queens. You can hear the roots of genius there though. I really liked the Them Crooked Vultures album though, and Eagles of Death Metal.

Hopping mad at the Amazon's failure to deliver what promises to be the synthi-shoegaze album of the year, I've had no choice but to listen to their two swoonsome singles over and over:
I Break Horses - Hearts (http://vimeo.com/23403268)

I went London recently and managed to miss all the rioting, but Actress (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivvzgXdf83w)'s pleasantly squelchy beats were the highlight of Field Day.

Didn't know this was out... and with Joey Belladonna on vocal duties? Hmmm... I will lend it a cautious ear, having seen the band live umpteen times in the John Bush era and regarding that as their peak (True, I love 'Among the Living' unreservedly, but 'Sound of White Noise' is, for me, their magnum opus.)

After listening to the entire album I think you wouldn't be disappointed. Several of the songs have a White Noise vibe going on, but for me the highlight is I'm Alive.

I listened to Y by The Pop Group for the first time last night, as people have repeatedly mentioned to me how it's a great post-punk album, and being a huge fan of post-punk, I decided to check it out. It was an interesting listen, but it seems like one of those albums I'll have to listen to more than once for it to completely sink in.

Missed this. I also saw Throwing Muses on their recent tour and I think it's probably the best I've ever seen them. You know how you go to a gig and the band go off and everyone claps politely for a bit in immediate anticipation of an encore? Well, this time the whole place went absolutely mental for about five minutes. I couldn't tell you the last time I saw that sort of reaction.

As for recently discovered music, I bought this album purely on the basis of seeing it described as "Loveless without the insistent beats" which turns out to be a pretty perfect summary. Lovely stuff: Jefre Cantu-Ledesma (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zthv_-DDlvU).

Just back from a bloody marvellous night of metal in a small dingy place in the tunnels underneath the main street in lovely Aberdeen, so for anyone of that persuasion I'll submit a small review. Comes under the "discovered" side, always been into metal/music and kind of keep up with stuff within a 10 year kind of window, I mean there's freakin heaps of music out there these days, it's silly. Anyway...

Fleshgod Apocalypse - Black metal, dudes in 17th centuryish black clothes or something lol doesn't matter, very fast, kind of operatic, cheesy but well aware of it kind of thing. Great stuff.

Skeletonwitch - Late 80s thrash/death style, solid, tight, constant buzz stuff. If you like Slayer etc you'd love it. They fucking love it, music for themselves, always the best.

The Black Dahlia Murder - I f you're still reading, you might know who Raging Speedhorn are, maybe . It's like that, metal as fuck, like (US) hardcore but more on the metal side, but anyway, just bouncin! Got a few bruises from the pit, we did them proud.

So yeah, not been into any of them before but you have to grab nights like these when they appear in these grim dark northern places. 41 and still in the pit lol \m/

I know what you mean. It's not just R.E.M. who are guilty of that though, I find that tweeness in one form or another in most albums I hear. Like shit and taxes you can't seem to avoid it. Unless your name's Tony Bliar. Giving Monster and New Adventures in Hi-Fi a listen now. Again, the albums aren't perfect but there is really top notch song writing going on there. I don't know why the albums aren't consistent, it could be down to laziness on the artists or producers?

Now I have to drive to work rather than train it, I've been digging out old CDs to listen to, mostly from my 1990s teen years. Apart from the usual Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, etc. one which stands out is Pony Express Record by Shudder to Think. The first time I heard it (1994) I hated it but it's one of those that grows and grows and it's an all time favourite now. Recommended for people who like angular, disjointed guitar and weird lyrics.

For the heaviest of heavy metal: City or Alien by Strapping Young Lad (for the angry drive home).

That sounds good to me (Shudder to Think) and I've been meaning to check out Strapping Young Lad for a while, if I can say that without saying ooer missus.

My current favourite recently discovered band is Yob, basically sludgy psychedelic doom.  :D

The song Quantum Mystic is described (by me) as a cross between the Melvins, Rush and the Doctor Who theme (kinda like how Pink Floyd did it but just the bass really). Very like early Soundgarden too, though sounding like the Melvins kind of covers that too.

Heading to Alexandra Palace in May to see them along with Wolves in the Throne Room, Melvins, Sleep(!) and Slayer playing Reign in Blood.

What with that, Electric Wizard in March and Meshuggah in April it's turning into a pretty top year for gigs! If you like that kind of thing of course.

I'd love to see Om, nearly sorted out going to Roadburn (festival in Tilburg) but it sod out faster than, well a lot faster than an Om song. Sleep headlining there too as well as Yob so the Alexandra Palace thing is making up for it well. Different stuff on the other nights, still tickets I think, just no weekend ones...

Vzzbux, that second Nuclear Assault video reminded me of those Metal XS "magazine" VHS cassettes you could get many moons ago. Do you remember?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Thrash-Burn-Metal-XS-Special/dp/B002OX586W (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Thrash-Burn-Metal-XS-Special/dp/B002OX586W)

I don't know why but me and my friends singled out NA, on those vids, as being an inherently amusing band to make fun of and imitate. I clicked on that link, though, and loved every second of it.
Iused to collect a different VHS video m,agazine but for the life of me cnat remember what is ws called.
Here is somemore Nuclear assault.

The seventh track on the The Magnetic Fields' triple album 69 Love Songs is the first of a number of real standouts: I Don't Want to Get Over You.

Just want to see if I can change the direction of this thread a bit. My question is, what music paints a mental image of the type of world Dredd inhabits for you? Obviously it depends on your relative likes and experience of music, but this came in my head after thinking Leftfield's Leftism perfectly captures my own mental image of Neuromancer's world (both favourites).

For me, El-P's kind of urban/dystopian rap works well for MC1 because of the dreamy but gritty sci-fi soundscape he uses as a background. Don't click if you hate rap:

Although I love metal, it doesn't fit into JD in my head. On a similar note, The Mission and Sisters of Mercy remind me of the comic shops I thought were a massively forbidden alternative thrill when my sister let my childish self hang out with her and her goth friends. Anyone remember Nu Earth in York?

One of the reasons I listen to so much industrial-goth/synthpop/ebm/aggrotech is because it feels like sci-fi music to me. Anything with bleeps and bloops in it I call spaceship music when describing it to friends.

It's the mood of it Cosh and the scale of it that puts me in mind of a futuristic dystopia. It kind of describes a "Judge Dredd style" of policing/police state... i.e. nightmare state. There is also a reference to Willy Horton which Clint Eastwood turned into the famous "make my day punk" scene in Dirty Harry. All a bit similar in style to Dredd. But no, I don't think of it as a theme tune to a film, no sir!

Well if you like that sort of thing :D I was trying to imply that the Heavy Metal genre as a whole was camp. There is only so much I can take of long haired blokes thrusting their genitals at other long haired blokes in an audience before I think, camp trash. Robert Plant is a prime example of this sort of campness. How it ever got to be associated with being macho I do not know. Bands like that deserved to be laughed at. :lol:

Wonkychop, I thought you believed 70s long haired HM as a genre deserved mockery. Above is a quote from you from the DROKK thread:

Yes, I was wondering that as well. (As for the 'best Sabs album' debate - 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath' reigns supreme as their masterpiece, methinks. It's not the one I listen to most often - that's 'Born Again', believe it or not - but 'SBS' is a pinnacle of perfection.)

It wasn't a serious debate, just forum banter.  They deserve mockery when they take themselves too seriously and refer to themselves a gods and kings et.c.

I'll give you an example of rock pomposity : David Coverdale in an interview in Sounds "I'm a serious musician and I want the ladies to know there is not a theme park between my legs called manland."

Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is bordering on progressive rock. Vol4 is more of a Sabbath sound to me. Don't get me wrong I love the Sabotage ?Technical Ecstasl era, some really interesting albums musically, definitely. If an alien from another planet wanted to know what HM I'd play Vol4 before the others. Or some Motorhead. Take your pick.

Heavy metal arrogance, whether tongue-in-cheek or delivered entirely without self-awareness (and the genre undoubtedly has leading lights in either camp and at every point along the spectrum) is all part of the fun. I bloody love it.

Back to Sabbath... I'll conceed that Vol. 4 contains the best song Sabbath ever wrote, in the form of 'Snowblind' (though on a different day, I'd probably nominate 'Spiral Architect' from Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.)
Title: Re: Discovered / rediscovered music thread
Post by: Mudcrab on 10 February, 2012, 07:19:06 pm
Right on topic, I've been watching Metal Evolution on Sky Arts (originally a VH1 series) and just watched one all about the early British stuff, Purple (saw them in Glasgow recently, which made me feel super young, given the rest of the crowd), Sabbath, Rainbow, Priest etc. By all (their) accounts, Vol 4 was when they started experimenting, bringing keyboards in etc. It did get a bit proggy for want of a better word.

Awesome programme, looking forward to the Melvins interviews and stuff in the "grunge" episode.

Especially these days, metal is far too broad a spectrum to be labelled with anything but of course there's a camp element in it, it's a performance art after all. I've always been the type to prefer "underground" stuff, or a band's "older stuff" cos you know, it's more serious innit. Maybe that makes it more camp, who knows. More importantly, who cares? We love what we love. Once it gets more mainstream and more commercial you hear it more out of context i.e. not live, so it seems more ridiculous.

Compare Rainbow's Stargazer (all Dio's dragons and sorcery stuff) to Since you've been fucking gone *ugh*. Which is more silly? Depends on your point of view I guess but I certainly prefer Stargazer cos it's arsom, the latter being a kind of pop rock abortion. And so on, could witter about it for years, not just up to the early 80s.

Seems there's always been a trend for "early" great stuff to develop into more commercial, weaker music. Early heavy music making way to glam, early 80s new wave heavy metal to hair metal, grindcore making way to horrible metalcore these days. These days he says, grindcore being 25 years old now!

But back to Sabbath, I always tend to think of them in terms of Ozzy, cos it's the origins of doom/stoner stuff. Dio's Sabbath I like some of, totally forgot about the Gillan phase! Die Young, what a song!

"[Metal] It’s not meant to be serious." - Buzz Osbourne (Melvins)

I was there too: great stuff (not least Don Airey doing the 'I Belong To Glasgow' bit on the keyboard), though I wish they'd played something off 'Purpendicular', which, to these ears, is one of the greatest albums ever.

Y'know, 'Born Again' is the oddest and most fascinating Sabbath artefact of 'em all... the very concept (Ian Gillan fronting Sabbath) pretty much defies all reason, the cover's the most garish and foul of images, the actual sound quality is aggressively horrible - a big mad sonically congealed mess that pretty much perfectly fits the cover art - and the whole thing was universally panned at 'birth' by everyone who reviewed it and almost everyone who played on it. But by golly, I love it beyond all reason!

Even that song the Sugababes did (don't laugh) mixed with Are Friends Electric gets me cos of the mad keyboards.

Heh, so back to metal, dearly hoping Yob play this at Ally Pally. It's the one I mentioned before, bit of Doctor Who bass (starts about a minute in), bit of Rush a la 2112 (the stop/start bit) and just everything that metal means to me, from Acid Rock to 70s heavy rock to Stoner Doom. I do believe it's about Siddhārtha Gautama Buddha (yeah I looked that full name up  :D) himself, the Quantum Mystic. Love it...

Not laughing mate, the rest of the Sugerbabes back catologue is banal drivel, but the convolution of Gary Numan (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0WNbm1jz6A) with an obscure rapper (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iirDzMk5ysI) produced an inspired piece of pop

Recently, Britpop early adopters Lush have managed to punch their way through the pile of shite that clutters my subconscious. They've had little discernible influence on the way music has developed since their split (under tragic circumstances), but the corruscating wit of songs like Hypocrite (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buz5D8OWmRc) and Ladykillers (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aReEwt_Z0kU) serve as a useful counterpoint to the accepted version of music history regarding that lunkhead era of music (i).

I'm not sure why the band didn't enjoy greater success; they followed the same musical trajectory- from shoegazing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snswhizRPBQ&feature=player_detailpage) to cynically catchy pop (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKq1hMoCTZ0)- as Blur, and they were as media friendly as the more popular Elastica. They did miss the opportunity for a bona fide crossover hit by not releasing their Lee and Nancy-style collaboration with Jarvis Cocker (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRwLtxm6j04) (recorded at the height of Pulp's fame) as a single. Co-songwriter Emma (ii) went on to form Sing-Sing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsDe0E4XeRQ), and Miki's a sub-Editor (http://www.undertheradarmag.com/interviews/miki_berenyi_interview_1020071/) for dull consumer magazines.

Maybe the reason Lush have done a Proust on me is the worrying number of middle-aged women who seem to be opting to dye their barnets the same colour of Fire Engine Red that Miki used to sport- with much less pleasing results. She and Jane Goldman have a lot to answer for.

(http://a4.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/59/bca8605afc1e076e4e0b4dc92d362fc0/l.jpg)

If a singer as beautiful as Japanese/Hungarian Berenyi came along these days, Cowell would force her to dump the rest of the band at the audition stages, make her over like Rihanna, and have her miming warbly covers of Keane songs on teatime telly.


(i) Despite being told by countless nostalgia TV docs, books and magazine articles that the entire nation was gripped by the insipid Blur vs Oasis wars for most of the mid-Nineties, my brain stubbornly insists that The Prodigy, RATM and the Wu-tang Clan occupied more of my thoughts and conversation at that time. I must have remembered it wrong.
(ii) The pretty girl you could still never quite tear your eyes away from Miki to pay attention to. I wonder why they fell out?

Post by: Colin YNWA on 29 April, 2012, 03:56:40 pm
Funnily enough I've been thinking about getting hold of a Lush album after seemingly lost all trace of those I once owned. Wonderful live band a source of discussion as to whether you preferred Miki or Emma (I was a big Emma fan).

A friend of mine was once furiously accused of chucking his beer at Miki and hitting her and guitar mid song. True pro she carried on until the end of the song (I forget which) before launching the attack. It was terrifying and very exciting all at the same time. Also I can promise misdirected, alas we never knew who the true culprit was.

My teenage crush was Katie-Jane Garside from Daisy Chainsaw, who I am amazed to find on Google is still in the music business.  In fact I fell for my first long-term girlfriend when I saw her off her tits on booze and shrooms and looking very like KJG.  It wasn't a healthy relationship  :(

Katie-Jane Garside undeniably had something going on, and Love Your Money (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yaZWCGs7tFw) was good dumb fun. If we're segueing into a 90's ITV Chart Show version of the 'Would You?' thread, I'll see your dirt-eating child bride and raise you a Toni Halliday from Curve (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00rv4Kz3NKA):

(http://userserve-ak.last.fm/serve/252/41828197.jpg)

Doppelganger (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4xMR7mYPWU) and Cuckoo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkWLtY9vDgA) were both enjoyable enough, though I remember at the time the band were accused of being Corporate Goth and puppets of their Producers (Flood and Alan Moulder). The combination of heavy beats, electro and fucked-up guitar worked for me (i), and I thought their bass player (ii) was really cool. I seem to remember they got drawn into Trent Reznor's sphere of influence and went the way of most people who make that mistake (iii), but they seem to keep popping back up at irregular intervals.


(i) It still sounds to me like one of the great musical roads less travelled. The Jesus and Mary Chain's Honey's Dead (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNfbcSBib64&ob=av3e) seemed to spring from a similar desire to combine all the best bits from the dance, hip hop and rock records people were buying at the time into one cohesive album. Like The Readers Digest for kids who listened to Peel. Or, less commercially successful versions of Screamadelica (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDK2svrGG_c).

(ii) Debbie, later of Blue-Peter-watching-get-your-homework-out-of-the-way-as-soon-as-you-come-home-guide-dogs-for-the-blind-sensible-side-parting-goody-two-shoes, Echobelly (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-BY1YU8Z1I)

(iii) Drugs, factionalism, transparent attempts to court controversy.

Title: Re: Discovered / rediscovered music thread
Post by: I, Cosh on 02 May, 2012, 11:28:58 pm
Super hot indie chicks of the late 80s and early 90s? Think I always slightly preferred Emma Anderson to Miki Berenyi, partly because she seemed to be slightly in the shade of her bandmate. It was only slightly, however. Musically I thought most of their stuff was over-produced but I remember them doing a great cover of Abba's Hey Hey Helen on a Peel session.
Arh Toni Halliday....
Arh Toni Halliday indeed, Mr YNWA! Curve at Edinburgh's Calton Studio is the only gig I've ever been on the guest list for. Ms Halliday is a surprisingly short in real life, but unsurprisingly gorgeous. Musically I loved their first EP and still give it a spin from time to time, but it was all downhill from there.
(ii) Debbie, later of Blue-Peter-watching-get-your-homework-out-of-the-way-as-soon-as-you-come-home-guide-dogs-for-the-blind-sensible-side-parting-goody-two-shoes, Echobelly (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-BY1YU8Z1I)
I was a lot keener on Sonya Aurora Madan than on most of her songs. Getting back to Debbie, wasn't she also briefly a member of Skunk Anansie for her sins? About three years ago I quite literally bumped into her when I was in that London to see a comeback gig by mid-90s indie favourites (of mine, at any rate) Drugstore and their magnetic frontwoman Isabel Monteiro.

Have I still got space to mention my teenage enthusiasm for Salli Carson from out of Ipswich's finest: Bleach. Almost seen here performing Decadence (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6crm4Pdtl8).

Oh, and I've spent a large proportion of my life having inappropriate thoughts about Lauren Laverne.

Back on topic, not quite "discovered" as I'd heard a couple of tracks before, but a pal took me to see Pelican a couple of weeks ago. Basically nineties post rock for heavy metal fans. Perhaps too many songs that were basically leftover Metallica riffs in search of a portentous lyric for my taste but there enough interesting noises and proper thrash out bits in between that to make, when mixed with three pints of lager, for an enjoyable Tuesday evening.

The recent, sad death of Beastie Boys' MCA has triggered off all kinds of youth reliving in the CD player for me this week. The 1990s was a brilliant era to be a teenager into music. Ill Communication still sounds fresh and totally unique today and it was the Beasties that opened the door to music I wouldn't have dared venture into before, like Wu Tang, Dr. Octagon (Kool Keith) and the Pharcyde.

Here's the Pharcyde's brilliant Drop, which is all backwards, like. Mike D makes a cameo in the video.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=co3qMdkucM0 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=co3qMdkucM0)

The quintessential 1990s bands for me that are currently doing the stereo rounds are the Beasties, RATM, Wu Tang, Soundgarden, Cypress Hill, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Beck, Nine Inch Nails, Alice in Chains and, less quintessentially, White Zombie. I love them all.

Never liked Pearl Jam.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre.

Caught them live this time last week, and I can honestly say it was one of the best gigs (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GpMD081oA0) I've ever been to.

I mean how could anyone not like a band that features the wonderful Joel Gion???


I'd heard of them before of course, but despite having a couple of mates that are huge fans - and constantly raving about every new release, I doubt I could have named a single song before last week. So I kinda entered into things with no preconceptions, and by the end of the gig - or well before that tbh, I was totally won over.

Two stonking hours of tunes, five(!) guitarists on show, hot Joel Gion tambourine action !, and all topped off with the closing number 'When Jokers attack' - that seemed to go on forever, and just got better and better, and better.

My new favourite band.

Just last Friday I was introduced to A Sunny Day in Glasgow (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWT1gjRcLLY)'s rather wonderful mixture of classic emotionlly incontinent indiepop and neo-shoegaze stylings. Like Au Revoir Simone with guitars on top of the synths and the same sense of revelling in melancholy.

Also been really taken with Edinburgh hip hop outfit Young Father's new one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7UmjvbmHQM&list=ALHTd1VmZQRNpNmoai-PX0h1f9e7meDFBQ). No connoisseur of hustle or flow, but the bendy electronic backdrop is lovely.

I'm going to Budapest for the weekend at the end of the month. My friends were devastated to learn that a big festival of experimental art and music is starting the day we leave. Having a look through the programme, the awesome/awful name Burning Star Core jumped out at me. One trip to YouTube later I had a new favourite thing.

Haven't been able to stop listening to this in the ten days since. Get ready for the best ten minutes of amplified violin drones you're ever likely to hear (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFxGs55Bx4Q).

Had never heard of Radian until a few days ago. Have listened to this track at least fifty times since. It's almost perfect. And it's called Scary Objects (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dDlNer9CpU).

Blimey, and I thought Zappa's 'Jazz from Hell' was a difficult album!  I must be getting old. 

That sounded more like a soundscape than music.  Something you might hear in a post-apocalyptic movie of some kind.

Paul Kelly - The A to Z Recordings.

Fantastic Australian singer-songwriter.

A mate at work lent me his best of compilation, Songs Of The South, and i've been lucky enough to be able to download a lot of his albums on Spotify. The live album with Paull Finn is absolutely brilliant.

I'll link a few songs later when i get home.

I strayed across The The recently.

Am surprised how albums like Soul Mining, Infected and Mind Bomb hold up. I expected that they would have dated more, like most music from the 80s (to my ears anyway).

Jesus. Following from my last post in Life Spugs…

I was about to comment how I thought it was a shame that there were alternate covers for The The albums as I really like the original cover illustrations by Andy Dog (Andrew Johnson). Just read that he passed away this year.

The last vestiges of my old cassette collection, mostly long gone, but now bolsters by (some of) my wives tapes too. We only have one tape player in the house these days, in the kitchen. Washing the dishes to Carter USM followed by Kirsten Hersh's Hips and Makers (which inexplicably I never replaced) has been a joy!

This thread really should be moved to the Music section, shouldn't it?  That part of the forum didn't exist when I started it.  Any chance of shifting it up a section, Rich?
As you can see, I don't often look at this thread - but done!e
You may also observe that i don't either, despite starting it.. But thanks!

Once again the thread is rediscovered!

Ah, fond memories of my first ever Glastonbury - 1986 - he blew the place away.
