Heh, never heard that one before... and liked it a whole mess of lot... and the GIF was timed perfectly , btw... heh.

I never got into QotSA as much as I likely should've... due to time restrictions of the human life span, really, but, like the Southern Death Cult, gonna give them a good, careful listen as it clicks with my neurology.

So, gee... thanks!

NO FAIR! Country death rattle music with a hot as fire girl half my age with a tramp stamp on her belly... her belly! Shame shame!

I had no chance to critically asses the music, being a sick sucker for dark, lithe alt women with disinterested expressions and no make up... sigh, but I will say she carried looking sultry onscreen with nothing to really do pretty well and now I can only remember the music as a Nick Cave kidnaps Merle Haggard in the bayou and they all get drunk on ether in a fishing shack song.

No fair.

ANd then the band from From Dusk til Dawn! Heh, who I couldn't help expecting to sprout fangs and play human limbs.. .but they're decent and that video was way more "fair!"

A fine contribution, and though I was a little alt boy in the 80's. I never succumbed to that hair, thank the gods, like so many of my peers did... of all genders.

Speaking of no fair! All THREE?? Ya played 'No New Tale...' several pages back. But hey, it is your thread...

So here I was writing a response to you on the Meta Café thread with this song playing on my iPod. How's that not funny?

Meat Puppet - Unexplained



I put on a compilation just so I did not get fixated on one song... and then look what happened: Fire alarm and the whole building emptied out onto the parking lot. Made me immediately think of how this thread started... the Meat Puppets! Then of all songs, Unexplained, singing of labels and meanings... *shakes head*

"No synchronicity to see here people! Move along!!"

[ETA: And Flock of Seagulls, that song, was one of the first songs I've ever played on stage!]

I remember the day I was crossing the Bay Bridge from San Francisco where I first heard this. I was going crazy because they'd played it twice on Live 105 and I'd missed who it was -- I was convinced that it was a new Bowie hit, except the music didn't sound like his way at the time. However, Bowie has surprised me many, many times in the past.

I pulled off in dangerous territory on the Cypress Exchange in Oakland to get to a phone to call Live 105 to find out who this was. Apparently I was considered by Alex Bennett and the Live 105 cast to be "a live one" and they put me on the air as they teased me, delaying telling me who the performer was. Moonbats were always fun call-ins. I hope I was entertaining.


ETA: talking about the Peter Murphy tune "Cuts you up", in case that wasn't obvious.

Oh, good... glad to see you, too! I was hoping you had thrown out your 'puter and joined the Sidhe, but an errand of mercy works, too...

It depends on the definition of "willie"

I didn't grow up listening to it, but I sort of got sucked into appreciating Jpop a few years ago. Of course, I'd heard about it a few times, but unlike everyone else I know, I got curious and wanted to know more. I wanted to understand the style and history behind that unique form of entertainment, which took me down a deep, deep rabbit hole: from BABYMETAL to Sakura Gakuin to AKB48, and then to Kamen Joshi and ultimately this wonderful group called Cheeky Parade. Although this music is very mainstream in Japan, it's practically unknown here in the USA. The number of Jpop fans I've met personally is exactly zero.

So why do I like the music so much? Because it reminds me of the big, fun, and crazy stuff America used to make in the past. Just take a look at YouTube, nobody in America makes anything that sounds like this anymore.

Babymetal rocks! Although there is group for that hosted by SaturnFX.

Baddogma, man, beat to PsychicTV. In the acronym game thread we call it being "pipped" (somebody posts while you are posting and beat you to the punch!) So I will post a song I love so much it is programmed on my drum machine!

Sisters of Mercy - Lucretia (My Reflection)


The other song programmed in? New Model Army's Living In the Rose. Singing either is not too difficult and both are comfortably in my range. And my neighbor has not kicked down the door and smashed the banjo! I have slow growing list of grunge songs I play on the thing now! "I am, smelling a rose that somebody gave me on my birthday death bead..." (I sing that into a plastic cup to get the megaphone effect! Hehehe)

Here is a lost gem from a little known band. I flipped my iPod to shuffle all because it hung up while looping over The Alarm (again, and again...) just to work out the hard disk so it was not stuck in a rut. I love Live At The China Club and Stuck in Wonderama Land. I have Cinema Verite but have not given that one a spin in a while. I totally forgot about this song!

Dramarama - Transformation
