I'll add it to my list, cheers!Freddy58 said:If you get a chance, try 'Max' by The RumourMilo_Myage said:Currently spinning Graham Parker and the Rumour - Squeezing Out Sparks. Rather shamefully my previous exposure to Graham has come only from the movie This Is 40, been meaning to have a listen ever since so when i saw this a nice copy of this in a charity shop i snapped it up. Best £1.50 i've spent in ages.
Hi Omni,omnibeard said:Charlie Jefferson, do you listen to Os Mutantes at all?
As with many bands there's some indifferent stuff but the best is absolutely sublime. Check out the album "De Volta Ao Planeta Dos Mutantes" on spotify, and apologies if I am teaching you to suck eggs.
Love OMD to pieces, remind me of my youth and of my sister. Architecture And Morality is just a stunning album.
You have a great "catholic" taste, for an atheist.omnibeard said:Funny, the sister thing... My earliest musical memories, bar Little White Bull by Tommy Steele, are all from my sister (Virgin Prunes (sorry for brackets within brackets but Gavin Friday sang on The Wonderful And Frightening World Of - perhaps my favourite Fall LP), Xmal Deutschland, OMD, Psychedelic Furs, The Cramps and many more punk/goth nightmares) all of which are still very dear to me.
For some reason MMJ just do not turn me on. I'm guessing they are kind of, and I stress kind of, ballpark to stuff like Calexico, which I absolutely love.
Funny thing music, innit?
Have been listening to a lot of, wait for it.... Roger Whittaker. My god, his voice is like melted honey. The Last Farewell, A Special Kind Of Man and I Don't Believe In If Anymore are top of the tree. How I reconcile that with listening to Napalm Death, Borbetomagus and Venetian Snares, god only knows.
I am an atheist.
Ah, Sonic Youth!! How Daydream Nation soundtracked my post-graduate, post-Smiths slough of despond. Simlulataneously, curing and killing me. So to speak.omnibeard said:Ha, Catholic Block, from my favourite Sonic Youth album.
Maybe I should rethink.
That is a strange one because, as you say, they are not world's apart. The joys and mysteries of taste.omnibeard said:I could listen to The Mariner's Revenge Song by The Decemberists over and over again. But I just can't do MMJ.
Am I wrong?
The two things are not necessarily related.
I saw a copy of 'Split' for £20, near mint. Too much to pay?DIB said:A wonderful curio from the 70's. Acoustic blues on side 1 and then side 2 is taken up with "The Hunt", a solo synthesiser/mellotron prog "song" railing against fox hunting.
Hi,omnibeard said:Great record that Broadcast LP. Do you know Woodbine?
Also do you listen to Pink Mountaintops and/or Black Mountain? Think you would like them.
That's getting quite a big lists isn't it Charlie.Charlie Jefferson said:Don't know the music of the other two bands, but will ad to my 'to investigate' list.
Par for the course these days for an original Liberty Records copy, and near mint too . 2 or 3 years ago you would have got it for about £5 or so, but 2nd hand prices are getting a bit silly these days on Ebay and such like.Freddy58 said:
