Crimson are a funny one for me, i think they are awesome but they became a band that i listened to when visiting certain friends.. the only album of
theirs that i own is "In The Court Of The Crimson King" which is just beyond amazing by several magnitudes. And it took me about 20 years to buy
that after i first heard it!
It's not easy loving many genres and artists though.. i almost had to decide to only go so far with certain stuff or i'd just have to lock myself
away with a record player and tell the world to do one. Which i have seriously considered more than once, but resisted.
I always quite liked having certain friends who i would visit and encounter particular music that i kinda reserved as personal to them. Maybe that's
a tad odd, but it's worked for me
I like and know Alex Winter... but never, ever heard Colony House... heh.. .where do you find these acts? I'm gonna have to rescan for "shivers"
as some songs need multiple tries... thanks.
Here's something that was wildly popular in the alt scene in the 80's .. .deservedly... The Violent Femmes' first album might be the best album
from the 20th century... but here's a lesser heard song from Hallowed Ground that I love...
Know what you mean... there's so much musical genius spread over so many genre's that one can't hear it all... so you have to settle on one or
four... heh. K Crimson has the same feeling for me.. .certain friends loooove them.. .the guys with Asian decor, colored lights and a four foot bong,
usually, heh... but there's a bunch of "art rock" I love along with the "good stuff".
Hmm, love that woman. Sorry, three posts too late but to reply : I was going to be Banshee, since I thought that would be a good ATS name and I like
beansidhe stories. But of course, banshee was taken and banshee6 or whatever seemed crap. So I thought I'd just be a Scottish beansith BUT then
I thought people would pronounce it bean -sith, like a star-wars legume. So I went for the slightly pretentious Irish, but pronounceable, version. Or
probably not pronounceable, I have no idea.
Anyway, a story that boring deserves some kind of recompense
I can't stop reading The Stones of Time (Martin Brennan). I even sneaked it into work to finish a chapter. What a neolithic nerd.
Although his theory on rings being amulets representing the sun is brilliant. I can't stop myself talking about it, apologies.
I noticed you mention it earlier/elsewhere and that prompted me to get my copy out of the bookshelf - i got distracted and haven't dug back in yet,
but i will later, so i'm sure we can share some reflections on it soon-ish. I keep meaning to properly hit your mega thread too, though between that
and and the book it may be a few weeks
Ta for the Capercaillie, and i very much liked The Breeders and Lush too, i've still got bits of both left over from my teenage years...
Wayhay! I feel the need to dig out an old Melody Maker now.
(New Model Army, Vengeance)
Yes, definitely come over to the Pagan Stones thread, you'd be brilliant there. It goes a bit wonky in bits, so I'd recommend the first part, and
I'll write a synopsis at the end. It needs one anyway, because - excitingly - we've only a few to get!
This is my favourite version of this song, hope you likee. I feel like that malingerer at parties when everyone else has gone home. I'm still jumping
on your bed in the morning saying 'ooh, and listen to this one'.
Here's a weird one for you. It's the kind of stuff I used to listen to when I was a kid (that was a long time ago).
Arthur Brown and Kingdom Come, album is Journey (I have an original). This was done after "Fire" and is part of the psychedelic era. I believe this
was the first time the Bentley Drum Machine (a drum synth) was used on a recording. Arthur Brown went on to work with Hawkwind, Eric Wolfson and Alan
Parsons. Captain Lockheed and the Starfighters is another pretty neat album (I have one of the original master pressings from United Artists).
That was cool... I liked it. Who can't love a big, stand-up bass played by a hot chick? oddly, that video was like a montage of my last 6 gfs...
And here is my fav band ... cause they are warped, brilliant and incredible musicians that never got the serious attention they deserved... and this
is a new one and is pretty good for a bunch of old farts...
