I've always wanted to beat Morrisey (and would probably get beaten instead) but appreciate the music... but his whole "thing" does bug me and he
sounds like a cat being squished in an acordian... slowly.
That's ...good. Never heard. I started thinking "these are those guys that just have no tune in mind and are just riffing with no plan or hook,"
and then it got mesmerizing and I realized they had a plan ... and liked it. Thanks.
Another entry for Neil Young and alternative lovers is the compilation tribute/cover album "The Bridge: a tribute to Neil Young" from 1989... Pixies
(Winterlong--- great), Flaming Lips, LOOP, Nick Cave ...anyway, there are some outstanding, unforgettable songs on it... and a couple that aren't... I
couldn't find a Youtube link with them all in one place as most of the videos had been taken down... but a great listen if you get a chance.
I'm actually kind of surprised as I have had the opposite experience. I find it difficult to come across anyone who has NOT heard them or of them. It
was one of the first things my wife and I were able to bond over when we first met, every band I've played in the last 20 years has been at least
slightly influenced by them. Especially the Self titles album from '95. It still holds up today in my opinion and is one of my favorite Clutch
releases. I still like them but got a little less into them as they settled into a more blues infested rock style. They still smoke the competition
but I miss stuff like Transnational Speedway League.
And here is a most beloved (by quite a few) artist... Brian Eno... who produced some great artists and is known for his dreamy techno ...but he has
some vocal work that is genius... these are off Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy which is one of the greatest modern albums of all time... also my
first record purchase as I was a strange kid...
And Clutch.... THAT's who they were/are... I was at an "after hours" party years ago and heard them played and liked them and never could remember
their name... so thanks Prof... found again after nearly a decade.
These guys are interesting ... the more I hear, the better...
Remember when the Discovery Channel had animals mating? I liked that tune, too... how could one not? Blackberry Smoke was totally unheard before this
and I liked them, too... straight ahead, catchy garage rock ... liked them better than the xian rock ... I can deal with Christians, but their rock?
Uh-uh... no... heh ; ]
That was way better than I expected... no offense, but you know... music prefaced by "I made this" isn't usually followed by a decent riff! It's
usually a little painful and forced on you by your 4:20 dealer... and you have to sit through it to get what you came for...
