Libertine keeps on comin with the hits.
I adore this band. This record is amazing. Thanks for reminding me of its existence; it has been a long time since listening to it.


They were amazing live. Worth recalling how they transformed this

Never in a million years would I have thought to access the cycling news music archive, but I like.

I have seldom been as disappointed as I was when I found out that Kurt Vile is not an absolutely awesome stage name but actually just his actual name.

Yeah, it did take a slight revision of expectations.

Aphronesis:

I know it is blasphemous to say, but aside from a handful of truly awesome music, I have never been a fan of Prince.
Until now, I never heard the song you posted, but I like. To this untrained ear, the track sort of reminded me of Dress Sexy by Bill Callahan

LS:
re--Googoosh.
That track would be the perfect theme song for an Iranian crime fighting tv show starring, say, Chris Elliot.

I’ve also always been ambivalent about Prince on the whole : I can see and argue everything that people love in him, but not all of it engages me. But I heard that a few times recently and rembered how good that moment was.

This reminds me of a conversation I had with a friend the other day. Topic was: Bands you hate but are supposed to love. Main criteria being critical (not commercial) acclaim, and disapproval of choices made by friends whose taste in music you otherwise respect.
I have always wanted to get this off my chest; I think it will be cathartic. Soul cleansing, if you will.
1) Beach Boys
2) David Bowie
3)Elvis Costello
4) The Clash
5) Prince

I feel much better. Thanks for indulging me.

I would totally agree on the Beach Boys, Elvis Costello, but also *gasp* to some degree, Neil Young.

I totally get that they are/were extremely talented musicians in their own right, and that I'm supposed to love them, but for some reason they just never quite hit the spot with me.

And on that note - I must also mention I like Tom Petty's earlier work, but as time went by I just didn't feel him anymore. This one I still like, though.

Don't forget Bob *cough* Dylan and The Rolling *cough* Stones. I know, I know. Blasphemy. Sorry.

Rather than get too carried away and turn this into a Music We Are Not Listening To thread, I direct your attention to Solvent. Many people will add it to their quote Not Listening To collection, but I submit Solvent is a truly tremendous electronic music band.
Enjoy!

Dylan is a hit and miss with me, but ultimately, I think what we are asked to do, as people who appreciate music, is simply to respect the musicians who came before us because they had some kind of an input into what we may now call music. We don't necessarily have to love them. (Not loving all this autotune the kids are into these days, btw., but that's a bedtime story for another night.)

Will listen to your link shortly. (After the cat I'm currently babysitting is done rocking out to the early Tom Petty.)

There is a ton of music from that era and before that is outstanding. Velvet Underground is one that immediately comes to mind. There are tons more in different genres that goes back decades that I love . Patsy Cline comes to mind. Some blues that dates back almost a century is stunningly beautiful.

The Solvent track I posted dates back to the early aughts. Which, as the kids would say, is a lifetime ago.

Very rave-like, if it had a bit more bass it would take me back to my days of dancing acid house.

I like it, nonetheless. (If only the old body could dance/move still so fast anymore!)

I prefer hard rock/metal. Black Sabbath was the first band to blow me away. (in the '70s). If you are a fan of rock, you are supposed to love the Beatles and Led Zeppelin, but I dislike the Beatles and can only tolerate some Zep.

I think I recommended this in the movie thread, but the Ginger Baker documentary: "Beware of Mr. Baker" is worth watching. You can stream it from several sources or try this YouTube link:

Sabbath is the only thing from that era I’d still put on.

In terms of that discussio, when Bowie died, I heard tributes for a week and was astonished at the range beyond the 15 or so AOR staples. Plus there was the Iggy Pop material. And it was interesting how many friends told me how much he had meant to their lives.

I think Neil Young is similarly important for his influence on so many different bands across genres.

The ones I'm supposed to love but really don't get are The Ramones, Rush, The Libertines (yes, really), and any Fleetwood Mac that doesn't have Peter Green in it.

The Beach Boys, Prince and Neil Young are all awesome, though I freely accept that the latter has made some tosh in his time. But when he's on it, he's incredible. Tonight's The Night / On The Beach era is just too good.
