What y'all listening to?

Recommended Posts

Just watched it Herman. A bit too hard for my taste but a good programme.Silly me, I like everything from Klezmar to Zydeco to California Dreaming to dustbowl blues.ce.

Been listening to The Who again lately. No particular album - just hopping about on you tube.

Great version of Baba O''Riley here, with a very animated Pete.

Herman, great shout on the Southern Rock documentary. Lynyrd Skynyrd are one of my all time favourite bands. Such a tragic story. Steve Gaines had just joined the band when he died, it was such a waste of a talent. The few songs he wrote for the band were incredible. I think he would have gone on to become one of the worlds greatest songwriters. Ronnie Van Zandt said many times that eventually he would eclipse the whole band with his talent, a real shame he never got to fulfil his massive potential.Here is one of my favourite Skynyrd tracks that Gaines wrote:I Never Dreamed - Lynyrd SkynyrdAlso been getting into weird gothic country music. Unearthed a gem in Those Poor Bastards and Lonesome Wyatt, this won''t be to everyone''s taste but is different and original, which is why I love it.Ill At Ease - Those Poor BastardsFeast Of Fear - Lonesome Wyatt & The Holy Spooks

Good doc by 4 in the end.Didn''t know much about the genre so it filled a gap.The poor sods lost a few good people along the way.Will have to check out the reggae one from last night.

Good version.

One of my best gigs was the Who backed up by Strummer.All were on excellent form,but sadly it wasn''t that long later that Joe and Entwistle left this world.Sad,but also glad i got to see them.

Pretenders. On a singles CD at the moment. 2nd girlfriend was a total Hynde .Pulled me. I''ll never forget it.  She worked for BBC radio . Family were loaded.  Old family names.I don''t know where I went wrong. She decamped to Hong Kong as a journalist in 1972.So I am back on the chain gang.I am trying to do an insurance claim so a bit of past music helps. Good Songs.hex

[quote user="Shyster"]Ian McCulloch with ''Me & David Bowie''. Not bad.

Having sobered up and given the above a few more listens I''ve decided it''s embarrassing.

I rather like the king Creosote / John Hopkins cd Diamond Mine. Other wise it has been a quiet year for music so far. I also like M83, Hurry up we''re dreaming, this was realesed last year mind. These are to 2 cd''s that will remind me of the birth of my little''un. The latest Wedding present album is solid too, plus they are playing the Seamonsters album in it''s entirity later in the year.

It''s a bit mad, it''s a bit bonkers, it''s a bit Queen, it''s Muse. It''s growing on me, think it will work well live.

This new album teaser is getting me excited...

Bonkers is the right word.Not a big fan of it but fair play to the organisers for not going with the easy option of a One Direction or some cheesy pop.
