Thank you.

I have some research to do.
Cheers.

Do you listen to Jacques Le Coque or The Electric Mess at all?
I haven’t heard of either of them and judging by the number of listens they have on Spotify neither has anyone else! I’ll try them out thanks, got loads of my own research to do this weekend.

I find Pavement a bit hit-and-miss. I really like some of their stuff but I can also quickly find it a little, um, contrived and maybe over worked. That's to say, it can get on my tits! Yet I do have at least 2 of their albums so I obviously liked them enough to make the same mistake again.

Edit: Easy Life - undecided. Interested enough to follow up on though. Lyrically, I hear tones of early Arctic Monkeys.
Modest Mouse are up there for me too. I can see how they’d both get on peoples’ tits.

I've been doing that "digging out 7" singles you hardly ever play anymore" thing. Lockdown is perfect for this game.
Just now was this. Owned from new since release in 1979 but probably not played in at least 20 years.

The memories it evokes are both painful & valuable.

& as far as discussions about the greatest pop songs of all time go...well, you're welcome to your opinions obviously.

Sorry (or maybe not) but I never 'got' or went for Patti Smith. All the right people seemed to but I just didn't.
Nowadays I can appreciate her stuff but not like a lot. I liked that she married someone with the surname Smith (Fred of MC5?) so she could keep her name! Or something like that.

And there you go.

I'm just making and listening to a bit of noise with a few beers on a Friday night.
Currently doing Les Thugs. I saw them live in Liverpool a million years ago and really enjoyed their set. I tried telling one of them how good they were afterwards but with him being French/Belgiumn and me being me, niether of us could undersand a word the other was saying. O happy days.

I like this. (Not for everyone, i know).

I'm with you on Patti Smith, she's interesting as an artist and I wouldn't turn her music off the radio (do look up her reading her autobiography for radio 4 a few years ago in fact) but can't imagine putting a whole album on. That said, I recently discovered the Iggy Pop album Party, which he cowrote with Smith's guitarist Ivan Kral. It's not as well regarded as the Bowie stuff, but well worth checking out

I've had a beer and been digging out some old old stuff. Not 'Easy Listening'.

Having played some various stuff that is quite current at times (The Chats, Jerry Lehane, Joy Cleaner, Wonk Unit ) I ended up playing stuff by Adrian Borland.

He was unknown by 99.9973% of people but had quality and a reason. I enjoyed his stuf with 'punk' band 'The Outsiders'. He had serious difficulities in life and commited suicide in 1999. https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Adrian_Borland

Anyhow, if you are keen on Post-Punk odd items from 1979 (there are so many), see what you think of this.


1979. The greatest year ever for music.

Not in 1979, but in 78, one of my favourite ever songs from a bit of a cult legend.


And here he is live at just shy of 80 years old!

Giorgio Moroder is a legend, not just a cult legend. He has his own music genre.
I do like his stuff - really do. He's the guy I tried to sound like when I got my own synth.

Hello
After a crazy crazy week of football, I've gone back to my Friday Night Routine of Beer & Music.

I've been playing regular stuff tonight but ended up at an old fave in Ian Saint Pe (Who? - He was in The Black Lips. Who?) - They were a sort of band that wer'nt a milloin miles away from the sort of stuff Pavement/Spiral Stairs/PSoI were doing. ish.

Anyway, he's American. and if this link to BandCamp works you can hear his stuff.
His track 'Kiss It Goodbye' was a truly massive hit with me a few years back.
https://saintpe.bandcamp.com/releases

Here's a live version of 'Kiss It Goodbye' where they seem as lubricated with ale as I am.

Rough? Yes. Tight? No.


Jeff, Thanks for leting us post stuff after a few drinks. :)

I’ve been for a few beers at a mate’s house and we’ve had an INXS bonanza. Quality stuff.

As old tossers are wont to do I've been reliving the past this week. Probably to do with winning the cup I reckon since it's something I've dreamed of seeing all my life.

Also, I have a vivid memory of being shitfaced bouncing about to this live about 25 years ago. Back when I could actually stand up unaided for longer than 20 ****ing minutes:

Nice!

Now that takes me back. I must now dig out some stuff that I've not played for far too long. Bauhaus were never going to be big (mass popular like) but Killing Joke should have been huge.

Jaz Coleman (Killing Joke) is a fascinating bloke. It's worth a bit of time reading about him.

I personally preferred Bauhaus but then I was a bit of a poser back then so it suited my image.
