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.
Ladies and gents, the Wedding Present.

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.
