Try listening to something cheerful instead then! Jump by Van Halen usually does the trick "you gotta ro-oo-o-oool with the punches to get to whats real!" whadda line!

Alternatively try something like the birdie song or agadoo, this will only work if you do the dance as well tho.  :wink:

New Maiden is ok, but not great.  MAJOR cr@ppola as far as the production.  For some unknown reason they chose not to master the disk.  Kevin Shirley should be shot.  His mix isn't good enough not to have been sent to a mastering engineer.  All told, I like the previous effort better.  But let's be serious, Seventh Son, Powerslave or Somewhere in Time this is NOT.

For my part .... well, I've been checking out the new Motörhead  album; seems pretty good so far!  I checked out the new BLS, too, but I gotta say that it hasn't really been doing it for me that much .... :? Anyway, I was just on holiday in Italy, too, so I was listening to some Lacuna Coil (I'm a sucker for that kinda thing -- always liked The Gathering! :)).  I've also been grooving with UK psych-masters Sun Dial, various MP3s downloaded from unsigned bands on MySpace (of all sorts of different genres), and over and over again to one of my own demos, trying to figure out a way to get a better snare sound from my relatively rudimentary drum-programming setup! :)

IMHO, The Gathering USED to be good, for cds like Mandylion and Nighttime Birds.  Then they went all "Floyd" and lost me as a fan.  That being said, Anneke still has a killer set of pipes.  

As far as Lacuna Coil goes... I dug Comalies alot more than the latest one... though it's still decent.  Not a whole heck of a lot of bands out there fronted by women that really do it for me.  I can only stand so much After Forever and Oratory.  Now Nightwish makes me want to claw my own eardrums out with a rusty coat hanger.  Though their latest is not AS grating.  I'm GLAD Tar-jaw left.  Couldn't stand her.  It'll be interesting to see who/what replaces her.

Oh yes indeed, I love Spiritual Beggars and the mighty Clutch!  Re the "new" Clutch album, do you mean Robot Hive/Exodus, Carlaz?  It's exceedingly fine, and there are two tracks left over from the Robot Hive sessions on Pitchfork & Lost Needles, which are just mind-bogglingly brilliant.

I've never listened to Lacuna Coil or The Gathering, but I should check them out - I love female vocalists in rock bands.

I have two new acquisitions from eBay today:

Y&T - Black Tiger
Trouble - The Skull (I just found out my Psalm 9/The Skull double CD is missing a track)

I've got a total of 115 days worth of music on my ipod. It's only around a 1/4 full as well. Freaky isn't it. It's screen works now as I dropped it down the toilet when i first got it and could only work it on shuffle play, as I couldn't navigate the menus! :lol:  They are life changing. If I lost it or had it stolen, I'd just buy another one! There's loads of rock and metal in it.

Jeff Beck is some of the music I'm listening to

Anthrax

SOAD

Devin Townsends Synchestra too.

Still got some Meshugga and Opeth which I like thanks to reading about them here!

I really like the idea of heavy rock/metal with female vocals -- perhaps because I like heavy rock/metal and I like a number of classic rock/folk female vocalists, and besides it just seems to me that the relative EQing of fat, overdriven guitars and high clear vocals ought to work well -- but I find that the implementation of female-voiced rock/metal often leaves much to be desired.  I like those two Gathering albums, I like what I've heard of LC's In a Reverie, Comalies, and even Karmacode, but After Forever, Nightwish, Oratory, and Within Temptation just leave me cold.

Hey Carlaz where can I find some examples of these folks Sun Dial they sound interesting to me.

They're linked off my MySpace page, but here're the direct links to the MySpace pages for Sun Dial and for main man Gary Ramon (who's page has, basically, a few more Sun Dial samples:

http://www.myspace.com/sundial001
http://www.myspace.com/garyramon

The regular Sun Dial web page is here: http://www.sundial.org.uk/

You can find their albums pretty easily on amazon.co.uk; Other Way Out, Return Journey, and Acid Yantra are all pretty good, IMO.  There's supposed to be a newly remastered retrospective compilation called Shards of God coming out shortly.  The band was pretty active in the early '90s, and then it seemed had kinda gone into hiatus, but seem to be gearing up for new recordings and gigs again.

They remind me of a sort of "British Invasion" version of Monster Magnet.  Gary Ramon clearly likes the Beatles, his '60s classic garage/psych, and walls o' fuzz. ;)  It's a too much pop to be stoner metal, but too heavy and stoned to be pop.  Maybe, like, if the Stone Roses had listened to more Sabbath or something .... ;)

Oh yes indeed, I love Spiritual Beggars and the mighty Clutch!  Re the "new" Clutch album, do you mean Robot Hive/Exodus, Carlaz?  It's exceedingly fine, and there are two tracks left over from the Robot Hive sessions on Pitchfork & Lost Needles, which are just mind-bogglingly brilliant.

Well, both actually, since I've only heard a bit of Robot Hive/Exodus and none of Pitchfork & Lost Needles!  Clearly, a situation I need to rectify.  I think Clutch are one of the best bands to come out of the US in the last decade (indeed, one of the best bands of the last decade!).

Quote from: Philly Q
I've never listened to Lacuna Coil or The Gathering, but I should check them out - I love female vocalists in rock bands.


Definitely check out The Gathering's Mandylion; the opening track "Strange Machines" pretty much defines why we should like female-voxed heavy rock. :)  Nighttime Birds is also a good album, though as was pointed out, the band then started to think they were the second-coming of Pink Floyd, which I'm not sure was a good direction for them .... But, anyway, I've only just checked out a bit of Lacuna Coil recently, mostly bits of their Comalies album, and it seems quite good.

I don't think The Gathering have a MySpace page, but you can listen to a few bits of Lacuna Coil on theirs: http://www.myspace.com/lacunacoil

i like The Gathering, the new album was brilliant!

I forgot to add:

Symbyosis http://www.symbyosis.com/

Some of the BEST metal guitar playing in a long time...plenty of mp3s on their site, heres one off the recent album http://www.symbyosis.com/phoenix00/medias/wingsphoenix/symbyosis_CD01_famine.mp3

Totally digging the vocals, the lead guitar tone and the melodic soloing!

The track above has one of the longest\best solo cuts off the album, not really shred, just soulful metal goodness  \m/

The regular Sun Dial web page is here: http://www.sundial.org.uk/
The band was pretty active in the early '90s, and then it seemed had kinda gone into hiatus, but seem to be gearing up for new recordings and gigs again.

They remind me of a sort of "British Invasion" version of Monster Magnet.  Gary Ramon clearly likes the Beatles, his '60s classic garage/psych, and walls o' fuzz. ;)  It's a too much pop to be stoner metal, but too heavy and stoned to be pop.  Maybe, like, if the Stone Roses had listened to more Sabbath or something .... ;)


Thanks for that

Apart from Fools Gold (the direction the roses should have moved in) the suggestion that they needed to listen to more Sabbath is the best suggestion I have heard for years :)

I found their home site last night but didn't find any audio :( I will try the others later (when the boss goes home) though I am currently computerless in work and having to use a communal machine to work on  :evil:

I notice that they have been mentioned alongside Bevis Frond & The Magic Mushroom Band who I found immencely enjoyable in the early 80s. Unfortunitely all my MM Band tapes where stolen (including a vast number of studio leftovers which where better than their official releases)

Ah, you are a man of taste!  One of my favorite concerts was a storming Bevis Frond gig in Cambridge's (now sadly defunct) The Boat Race venue in autumn 1995.  Amazing.  I saw them a few more times in the late '90s, and Nick Saloman really is a lovely bloke (as well as a first rate songwriter and psychedelic guitar-meister).

The latest Aural Innovations online newsletter has interviews with both Nick and Gary Ramon of Sundial: http://aural-innovations.com/issues/issue34/issue34.html

(Bunch of other nterviews there, too: Dave Brock, the dudes from Nebula ....)

Always the way with these kinds of bands.  Like, I really dig Sun Dial's Return Journey, which poses as an album but is actually a collection of various stuff Ramon had lying about, I think .... :)

As for Marty's new one, at least it doesn't suck as bad the previous few.  It's still a far cry from Cacophony, but it's a step in the right direction.  Well, other than that J-Pop singer caterwauling on the one tune.  Can you say "skip button"?  I knew you could.  :)

Funnily enough, I was listening to Destiny a couple of months ago - again, for the first time in eons!  

Gene Marchello's a damn good guitarist, but the album sounds pretty dated now - funny how 70s records still sound great and always have done, but loads of things from the 80s and 90s haven't stood the test of time at all....  :?

The Chain Gang of Love album by the Raveonettes is (still) a hit, I love the songwriting and storytelling and off course the guitars that go from all nice and mellow to completely deranged fuzz 'n feedback assaults at the drop of a hat 8)

I was listening to that albom last week, it's way better than "pretty in black" and I love the 'twanky' guitar in love in a trashcan.

Iver the weekend I was listening to a lot of stuff by Air (if only they would forget abou vocals on their tracks), along with Children of Nuggets http://www.rhino.com/store/ProductDetail.lasso?Number=74639

I blame Carlaz for mentioning Sun Dial to me hough I do have about half the tracks on the original albums anyway.

Love in a trash Can has great guitar tones indeed 8) (but it's from the Pretty in Black album). My favourites from Chain Gang of Love are the opening track, "Remember" and "Heartbreak Stroll".

Air has some good tunes too although I rarely manage to sit trough an entire album.

I think I may have got that bass ackwards as I was posting while doing what I'm being paid to do.

Only 2, You`re lucky, I`ve walked out of loads.

Shame Budgie were disapointing.
I only saw them once , Reading festival `79 I thought they were pretty good but for me their early `70`s stuff is where it`s at.

Bernie Torme, I saw him a few times with Ian Gillan. Great player, what became of him?

Post by: carlaz on October 13, 2006, 11:13:34 AM
I think Paul Rodgers and Free (and all that mob) are severely underrated, perhaps more so in the US than in the UK, but underrated nonetheless.  Like, yeah, I heard "All Right Now" all the time on classic rock radio in the States as a kid, and that's a great song of course, but that's all you really run into.  

I mean, Zeppelin remain huge in the States compared to the UK in my experience (I was in Colorado last year and walked into a supermarket where I heard "Custard Pie" playing on the store PA!).  Where's the Free?

Not until I started going to Gov't Mule gigs did I start getting the sense that there was more to Free than just "All Right Now" (the Mule covered "Mr. Big" often live, and on their first studio album,and the did very Free-influenced versions of "The Hunter".  Then I ran out and got a Free compilation, and have been slowly digging deeper since.  I really want to see that DVD that PhilKing mentioned!  That's gotta be great.

It's really a shame that Free imploded like they did, since I think they were really poised to go places.  Bad Company is pretty respectable, though they were clearly in a bit of trouble towards the end before Paul quit (and though the later, reconstituted version had respectable commercial succcess, they didn't really kick a lot of arses IMO).  The Firm ... never really got anywhere, somehow.  

As for Rodgers himself, he's still in great shape and has a great voice.  As happy as I am for him for his gig with Queen, I can't help feeling it's a bit of an underachievement.  I think the man needs collaborative partners and a ripping guitarist, and though Queen to a large degree provide those, I'm not sure they provide them in such a way that really play to his strengths.  Hey, wait, maybe he should team up with Audley Freed (http://www.gibson.com/whatsnew/pressrelease/2002/apr3a.html) (ex-Cry of Love, ex-Black Crowes)?  He's just the right kind of guitarist to work with Rodgers, IMO.

Whats GOOMY like? I've only heard a couple of tracks off it which were pretty good but I'm not really a fan of instrumentals that much.

Post by: gingataff on October 19, 2006, 04:28:05 PM
I'm big on instrumentals, always have been since 87 when I got my first Shrapnel records compilation album (with Scarified by Racer X on it!!!!)

But to answer your question, its fantastic. Very retro in terms of tone and riffing and a lot of Gilbert's sense of humour and tons of outrageous shredding but always musical.

The only thing that bothers me is it doesn't sound like he's using his PGM, he's really into the Ibanez Gibson copies and although I think he get's the pickups rewound by dimarzio they are definately more vintage and maybe wired in parallel to get that really clear high end and clicky picking sound-
I do love his tone on that album though.

I bought it when it came out (198???) and then lent it to someone and didn't get it back (ooohhh how many times has that happened?) but by some miracle I managed to find another copy (on LP of course!) in the record and tape exchange on Notting Hill Gate (around the corner from my flat at the time) last winter. Happy? OVER THE BLOODY MOON I WAS!! :D  :D  :D
Racer X, Cacophany, Jason Becker, Marty Friedman, Greg Howe... amazing stuff!

Shame that in Mike Varney's attempt to find every good guitar player in America he overlooked one simple thing, sound quality. Cos it sound's like it was recorded on cardboard with a knitting needle as a stylus. Oh well you can't have everything.

Yes it does sound a bit low budget!

I love the last track on side 2, The Villa by Doctor Mastermind! It's just mad! The shredding on the album is crazy and I used to play it to death. I think I got mine around late 88 but it had been out for a bit already i think.

Nice cover though isn't it! I used to gaze at it for ages!  :lol:

Edit, i just found it and it says 1989 on the back!

Yes, I've got it by the side of me now! 3rd track on the B side called, 'Out Of The Sun'

There's some numbers in the small print, they look like catalogue numbers for the album that his track came from;

LP RR 9573/ CD RR 9573 2

I quite like Zakk´s Sonic Brew -- "Bored to Tears" is just so crushingly heavy, and then there´s a bit of acoustic stuff on there too.  All, the stuff Zakk´s good at, though I think he´s been running out of ideas since the early BLS albums.  The last few have been all right, some decent stuff, but it´s all a bit same-y and predictable.  I think Zakk needs a strong writing partner.  He´s very dominant in the "group" (such as it is) but just can´t do it all by himself for ever.

On a different note -- I´m actually writing from Bogota, Colombia at the moment, down here unexpectedly due too an emergency in my wife´s family.  Haven´t had too much chance to do too much fun, but I did get along to a record release party of a kinda Latin pop/rock artist called Galeano whom I vaguely know (via the the internet until the launch the other night).  Good fun -- and very very differnt from BLS. ;)  Guess he´d picked up a sponsorship from Fender, since his band was all kitted out with very fresh looking Fender gear ....

I don't really have many albums, i download most of my music off limewire (But don't tell anyone, it's illegal :wink: ) But I'm listening to Dream Theater, Liquid Tension Experiment, the 'new' Deep Purple with Steve Morse.

Everyone should definately check out the current Deep Purple lineup, (they're still putting out new material) I saw them live this year and they're sounding better than ever. Steve Morse did so much for that band, he's added a new heavy/shreddy/pinch harmonicky sound that's really breathed life into a band that's been around for 38 years.

I dictaphoned a concert of theirs and I'm listening to that too (Shh, that's illegal too :wink::wink::wink:)

They're one of the very few "old" bands that isn't just going through the motions and touring with a second drummer, three backup singers and an army of auxiliary keyboard players.  And as people, they've grown old gracefully instead of turning into cartoons of themselves like Whitesnake and Aerosmith.

More rockabilly and more punk than their earlier work. The rockabilly licks are more rockabilly and the punk rock has become heavier, more complex and very catchy. They have found a way to fuse those styles together very well on this album.

I went to see George Clinton at The Brixton Academy in 96 or 97, anyway he had two dummers, two bass players and 3 guitar players. Not to mention the synths and brass sections. At his peak he would have 70 people on stage. The money ran out for that kind of touring as you can imagine (too much acid :wink: )! The gig started around 21:00 and went on till around 4:00! Most of it was these amazing jams. Dirty funk, it's a bit different to say the least but what a $%&#in' night!  8)

I had very mixed feelings about messing around with the original tracks. If we entertain the premise that remixing has become an artform then it brings something to it I guess.Better that George Martin is the man to do it. The whole catalogue is apparently bvbeing worked upon to release in 5.1 surround sound.The first 4 years songs , or thereabouts, were recorded pretty much with destructive overdubs so that'll be interesting. Having listened now a few times_ do like it but would prefer to hear the original tracks restored so tha they come up well on a modern hifi. Overall, it does work and the version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps is lovely.It was taken from an acoustic demo that George did and it is gentle and has George's plaintiff vocal with a new  George Martin string overdub.

Listening to Def Leppard : High and Dry
Probably their best album

(http://ec2.images-amazon.com/images/P/B000001DVD.01._SS500_SCLZZZZZZZ_V1115512419_.jpg)
It was recorded just after AC/DC's Back In Black using Mutt Lange who had produced for the Aussies too and unsurprisingly sounds rather similar but with Def Lepp songs and vocals
It has EXACTLY the same sound as Back In Black and is surely the heaviest (and best) thing that Def Leppard ever did.

It is so worth hearing as it has so much great guitar work on it and some great rock guitar tones too.....

Also been listening to a Heavy Pettin box set : Pettology
They were Glasgow's answer to Def Leppard and were a great live band

Totally agree!

It's interesting that Def Leppard were often accused of not being able to function without Lange, and that "their" sound was really "his" sound (which seemed to be proved by that Bryan Adams album he did later!).

But when he worked with AC/DC, they still sounded like AC/DC.  And he even took "that" sound to his next project.

agree with Feline, High'N'Dry is one of my all time favourite albums, and i absolutely love the guitar sounds on it.  anyone that has written Leppard off as a pop band should give it a listen, it'll surprise you!

I wouldn't call it heavier, but it's more "mature" sounding.  Almost a bit proggy at times, but unfortunately Kip's "serious singer-songwriter" side is much in evidence.  There's hardly any of that bouncy, shiny pop metal sound from the first two albums (unfortunately).

Only listened to it a couple of times though, need to let it grow on me...

Robert Cray is superb, I particulary like the line from The Score "and your story wasn't fittin' any better than your dress". Just says it all really, that and he's yet another guitarist who shows the high standard of technique that is needed to pull off playing with a clean guitar sound without needing to descend into the depths of widdledom. Phenominal artist!  8)

I just picked up, for a fiver !, a CD and DVD of Eric Clapton playing Robert Johnson songs( called Sessions for Robert J).The DVD is superb-informal footage of "Ricky" and the guys rehearsing. His voice is fantastic on this and , to me, his playing is coming from somewhere special.I know he particularly loves Johnsons stuff and it shows. The band features the late great Billy Preston and some lovely slide from Doyle Bramhall 11
( that is not a football team btw). Also listening to a lot of Muddy Waters and Big Bill Broonzy. Mrs 38th & I are both fond of blues.

i finally got to listen to the dvd-audio disc of the Beatles: Love.

WOW!  it's incredible how good this sounds, it really shows the fidelity achievable with skilled recording engineers and good quality tape and machinery, from back in the days when things were over-engineered rather than designed to fall apart after four years!  of course, the actual music is more important than the recording quality, and for me that is beyond reproach.  the Beatles are simply the most consistently brilliant band i can think of.  many people these days argue against their importance and even their quality, but i think anyone that looks objectively at the evolution of "popular" music will have little doubt just how vital their contribution was.

Phew!  got a bit heavy there!  anyway, point is it's bloody brilliant!  well worth buying i think.

also still listening to my recent staple diet of Monster Magnet, The Flaming Lips, Steve Vai and Juliette and the Licks.  oh and last night i gave The Donnas: Gold Medal a spin, i'd forgotten how good that was!  shame to hear they've been dumped by their label.

Listening to a nice trashy glam band from San Francisco called Miss Crazy
Track I like called "Cant get Enough"

http://www.myspace.com/misscrazymusic

A bit like Cinderella meets Kix whilst trying to dress up as Kiss
or Cheap Trick meets Wasp

Not very original but good tunes and catchy as hell
Good fun stuff ( I have always liked glam stuff - as a kid it was Slade, T Rex , Queen, Bowie Kiss etc - in the 80s it was Motley , Ratt, early Tigertailz and GnR till they became a parody of themselves)

But did include the soundtrack to the Let There be Rock live video. I love the bit in that where Angus has to take Oxygen to carry on. That is the most  Rock thing I have ever seen :) :guitar4:

Unfortunatley its still VHS only, is available on amazon though.
It is really worth getting if you are a fan, IMO the best AC/DC live video. Really captures the raw essence of their music, and even has a cheesy bi-plane / porsche montage in the middle to Walk All Over You :)

The Riff Raff is a "does exactly what it says on the tin" kind of pickup.  It's that typical slightly dry (but not harsh) Gibson T-top kind of tone - won't really blow you away on first listen, but it has hidden depths!  It's fairly low output, but a little bit snarlier and more aggressive than a Mule or SM, from what I've read and heard.  It's very versatile (especially with a series/parallel switch) and yes, it'll do Angus!

I only have the bridge model, in my one-pickup SG-X, so I don't know about the neck model.

Yes, their former guitarist Derek Frigo died in 2004, sadly.  He'd been out of the band for years but turned up on the odd track occasionally.  And they've fallen out with Donnie Vie, so (AFAIK) Johnny Monaco is now guitarist and singer (edit: seems Donnie is back!).

They've had a weird career - a bit of early success then almost forgotten, but they've somehow managed to release 11 studio albums, a couple of live ones and a couple of best-ofs.

Early 90's rock band Candelbox. They had some hits and played a good live show. I may get a chance to see them Sat. night do a benefit concert for Autism.

I think Candelbox broke up around 1997 and got together for a few shows last year and now this.

also Backyard Babies, Tinnitus.  excellent!

and i'm sure i'll get stick for this, but i've really been enjoying Slunt's "One Night Stand".

had to stick on a bit of Gary Moore to balance out all the sleaze!!

haven't been in banbridge lately, but probably something to do with all the unconcious sixteen year olds littering the pavement on a saturday night! :lol:

does sound a it bizarre though, "you can only drink if you can prove you are a widely travelled and experienced individual.  we will require proof that you have been to at least four countries, a c.v., and a report from your doctor declaring that you are not likely to become an alcoholic".

Just been listening to Chicken Shack's 100 Ton Chicken (japanese CD), and jamming along on the Zemaitis Clone with Emerald/Mule and using the Silver Jublilee/Ear Candy with Sidewinders.  I can get all the old blues tones with this setup, including the ice pick clean with sustain!

Add the Klon Centaur or HBE Powerscreamer and an old Wah Wah and now I am into the Stevie Ray sound (and curiously enough, had him on next). Just for a change of pace, I have the essential Iron Maiden coming up next!

My all time favourite album!!!

Paul Stanley - solo 1978

To be fair - if you have never heard this particular album you owe it to yourself to give it a spin.
It is like Kiss without any of the dumb /stupid bits

Was the first Kiss related album I heard and it still stands up really well
Lead Guitar is by Bob kulick, and some of the drums are by Carmine Appice

Good album!  I was never a Kiss fan, but I bought the Paul Stanley one because it got really good reviews - and because I liked Bob Kulick's band Balance.  I've also got Gene Simmons' single "Radioactive" (on red vinyl, with free Gene mask).

Simmons solo album had Aerosmith's Joe Perry playing guitar on it!!

Bob Kulick is an awesome player - I love he urgency of the sound of his guitars on this album, although both Paul Stanley and Steve Lacey played on certain tracks (Lacey was also the guitarist on Simmon's Radioactive)

Bob Kulick is Bruce Kulick's brother (although it may be half brother)
Another great project he did was Blackthorne with Graham Bonnet on vocals

It's an incestuous world out there in the music biz

I never heard the Kulicks might only be half-brothers - they look very alike (if you imagine Bruce bald) and I think they're pretty close in age.  Bob looks a fair bit shorter though.  
On the incestuous theme, Bruce was also in another of my all-time favourite bands, the Good Rats - although he only played on probably their worst album...  :?

Meanwhile, this evening I am listening to:

Tyketto - Strength In Numbers
Baby Animals - Baby Animals

and some "hipster metal":

Early Man - Closing In
The Sword - Age Of Winters   Good stuff, if a bit samey.

Volume 8: The Threat Is Real
We've Come for You All


Or do you prefer the early stuff Ben?

I don't think I'm suprising anyone by answering that in the affirmative. :)

Afternoon Delight - Starland Vocal Band

Seriously, I'm on a severe smooth 70s soft rock kick.  I was up late the other night, and this infomercial came on with all those great songs from my early youth... Band on the Run, Cool Change, Kung Fu Fighting.  Ever since, it's been 70s pop.  My wife's about to FREAK!   Speaking of Le Freak... FREAK OUT!!.

But, in my car, where I'm winding up for work, it's Exreme III Sides to Every Story.   Side one is serious good stuff.  The other two sides I can live without.

I don't know if you boys from across the pond were exposed to much US 70s pop, but all I know is the Bay City Rollers is from somewhere's over there.

Off to Splawn-land now.  Weedly weedly weedly, aren't chromatic exercises fun?!?

I love Sound of White Noise and Stomp 442, but the albums since then haven't really worked for me.  Haven't heard the early stuff for years, I've only got it on vinyl and I don't have a turntable right now.

Tuh-tuh tuh-tuh Tragic Comic?  Must admit I too have trouble with that song, and Stop The World.  I think III Sides was a bit of a disastrous misstep to be honest.

Oh yeah, we got lots of 70s US pop.  '77-'80 was the time I most listened to the radio, so the top 40s from those days are permanently etched in my brain.  Unfortunately.

.... if sleeping is your goal LOL!

But seriously, Ben.  I was huge on Pornograffitti.  I initially did not like III Sides.  In fact, I put it away for years and recently drug it out.  I hear so many different things on side one.  I hear Beatles, I hear Jimi, but it's all in Nuno's style.  Listening to that (and Porno), Nuno definitely carved out his own distinct style.  The guy is just nuts - and I would move him up into the "great musician" category, not just a great guitarist.  Then you consider the diversity of the other two sides.  I think Nuno just blew the wad on that CD.  What else was left for Extreme to do?  Truly a great great underappreciated CD.  I have to say I love the guitar tone on side 1 also - sounds very QR Gear 1 to my ears anyway.

Nuno did in 3 albums what I couldn't do in 3 lifetimes.

We'll have to agree to disagree on the other two sides though.  Perhaps in another 20 years I will appreciate it.

It's different in style, for sure.

It's a little too Weezer in some spots for me, but songs like Shadow Boxing and the hidden track are great. Cynical is interesting, but as far as hooks go, III Sides is superior.

Yes Tom, I don't know why too! (shakes head and mutters about youngsters these days etc etc ). Lennon's fingerpicking on Julia is pretty cool I think. I bet you skipped through Revolution 9 though. And "While My Guitar Gently Weeps"-sublime.In case you don't know, it is Eric Clapton on guitar.

I agree, While My Guitar Gently Weeps really is good, I may suggest that one for the cover band, and I didnt know Clapton played on it.

 :D It`s heavy`ish in places, leans more towards the guitars than the keyboards for sure, some great soloing going on but has that distinct nightranger`ish song writing. Poppy commercial songs. More like laterday Def Leppard !

But i love all that type of stuff, they call it AOR now check out Melodic Rock.com http://www.melodicrock.com/reviews/reviews.html This guy tends to be right more often than being wrong. You can click on the links connected to the album review your reading, invariably it`ll be a record company link but you can listen to some snippets of the songs before deciding wether or not to buy. Along with this Web site Melodic Rock.com is my fav, check it out if you like good commercial singable type Metal 80`s/90`s style.

he O.D.'d on prescription drugs in January or February of 2006.  at one point i heard he had actually died! but happily rumours of his demise were greatly exaggerated!  it's still not clear if M.M. will ever tour again, or if there will be any more recordings as this album had been almost complete before the overdose.  it's called "4 Way Diablo" and is due in November.  i know i'm looking forward to it!

I recently bought a copy of Classic Rock magazine. It included a CD full of bluesrock tracks. The starter is a band called Pig Irön. Their new CD should be out pretty soon and when it does I got to have it.

Heavy guitar bluesrock riffs and a wailing dirty harmonica. Bruce Dickenson likes them alot too.

This month's Metal Hammer has a couple of CDs, one of which is called "The Great Southern Trendkill" (hmm, sounds familiar...) - supposedly southern rock bands, but there's at least one Canadian band (Priestess) and several British ones, including Pig Irön.  All good stuff!

She does sing though - And her voice is very pretty imo.

Normally I'd hate her type - But I really like it actually - Reminds me of the whole Street "And then I went to get some chips and drinks" xD

Much prefer her to Lily Allen.

not that i'm a fan myself, but although her seeming lack of rythme and melody may seem cr@p, the offset provides something different I guess

like the intro to purple haze is $%&#ed up, but that is definately on purpose

The Genius! Superb. I think it's the best Wu-Tang project out of the bunch, personally, with Raekwon's "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx..." coming in second.

I'm currently listening to a lot of Factory Records stuff as a small tribute to Tony Wilson (mainly the Durutti Column and Joy Division), and a few rap mixtapes as a tribute to my taste for rap mixtapes. Had some G'n'R on earlier too.

I've also been listening to that, acquired on your recommendation!

Also I've just got the first four Foreigner albums, remastered, on CD.  Double Vision was the very first proper rock album I bought, way back in 1979, so I've always had a soft spot for the band.  They can be very schmaltzy at times, but the heavier stuff is great, and I'm enjoying Mick Jones' guitar playing.  What a fantastic singer Lou Gramm is!

today Tigertailz' new album, Thrill Pistol arrived!  so i've been listening to that and the bonus disc of their unreleased 1992 Wazbonez album, which is brilliant!  and by an extraordinary coincidence i'm going to Wales tomorrow!  (they're Welsh, in case that confused anyone)

i know there aren't many here into glam metal, but i've always loved it, and Tigertailz are well above average at it!

The singer in Threshold doesn`t sound like a typical Power Metal  singer but thats good it gives the band anoher dimension.

Recent Listening

Gomez : Bring It On & Out West
Cream : Disreali Gears
Talking Heads : Remain in Light
Orange Goblin : 5 albums (but couldn't tell you their names)
Soft Machine : Bundles (Allan Holdsworth really is a god amongst men)
PiL : Commercial Zone
Pantera : Cowboys from Hell
ZZ Top : Degeullo & Tres Hembres

However I feel I have been listening to the same old things too much, so can somebody make some suggestions to shake things up a bit.

But please not metal as I unlistened to metal on my mp3 player, and I have to be in the mood (which usually involves heading towards some sort of psychotic episode)

Yes he is brilliant! I only had my first listen today on the ipod but shall make a note of the one you mentioned to get also!
I don't know what song it was but he just sounded exactly like Jeff Beck, the tone and choice of notes, not an easy thing to do! Then the next thing he playing a jazzy style, incredible stuff!

Not got nods yet either but really like the faces, they're very cool.

King's X.

I've got pretty much all of their stuff on random on my iPod and it suits every mood, from aggressive and heavy to spiritual and uplifting to introspective and thought provoking. I saw them live twice around 1989 (but sadly not since) and I've always been in awe of their sound.
IMO Doug Pinnick is one of the greatest rock vocalists of all time.

Oh yes!  :D  One of my favourite bands, seen them 4 or 5 times which is very unusual for me.  I still buy the albums, but I've always felt they lost something when they split with producer/manager Sam Taylor after the 4th album.

KING'S X

I try to see them once per year, as they always come around to NYC in the Summer. I've met them before and after gigs several times, and they've always been super nice and appreciative, signed my CDs, chatted gear, etc.

Live, King's X is just MONSTROUS; what Cream should have been. Seriously. The live version of Monajam blows away most other instrumental tracks, which usually feature flash over substance.

I've had Kings X on the ipod this week too, Gretchen Goes To Nebraska.

I saw them live at Brixton in 1989, on a mainly all thrash bill, with Anthrax headlining (same management or something) but they opened up and were fantastic.

Also got my JPT Scare Band Album Past Is Prologue at last from the states, it's very very good!

saw Kings X once in about 1991 or 2, supporting AC/DC.  i thought they were great, but typical Belfast crowd of the time, they got spat on. a lot.  those scummy people put me off going to gigs in Belfast for many years, and when i started again a couple of years ago i found that now the security people are all c**ts and instead of spitting, the pricks in the crowd throw coins!  i'm sticking with Dublin, even though it costs a fortune.

hmmm, rambled a bit there!  oh yeah, Kings X are great!  :wink:

Not usually my thing but I've been listening to a bit of Lamb of God today, Redneck has such a good riff. Still not that keen on the vocals but its growing on me. Also, deftones - My Own Summer and Be Quiet and Drive are the only ones I like, but they're great :)

LOT of playtime this week:

Coheed And Cambria In Keeping Secrets Of Silent Earth: 3


I'm suprised.

Back in Black has been getting the most spins for me this week, mainly as I get dressed for work.  Dont really have enough time to listen to music at the moment (apart from the radio) if I'm not busy practicing with one of the two bands, I'm practicing my own chops/writing, at a gig/pub or sleeping!

I've had a load of stuff crop up on my ipod shuffle that I really love. This little gizmo has rekindled my love for the Klaxons, the Automatic and Lazlo Bane. And sticking the entire Led Zep catalogue and some Cream on it was a very good idea indeed.

I keep meaning to get more Journey, I only have a few (and they're mostly on vinyl).  I like what I've heard of the early stuff with Gregg Rolie singing, and I absolutely love Frontiers, but then they went a bit bland and boring on Raised on Radio.  I've never heard any of the post-Perry stuff.

When I was listening to those Foreigner albums a few weeks ago, I was thinking:  Foreigner had great songs but really no memorable guitar parts to speak of, but Journey had the songs plus all those awesome sing-along guitar solos from Mr Schon.  No contest really.

I liked the works and that tour was amazing (they were very loud and very heavy - think Brian got to chose the songs) - saw them 3 nights on the trot at Wembley and was in the video for I want to break free

But I yearned for the old stuff - the first 6 albums.
Hot Space was too "black" and funk influenced & Kind of magic was a bit too poppy for me.
Had lost interest by Miracle and Inuendo

i can't really speak on the band, as this is the only album i own/have heard - but this one is INCREDIBLE. i love the atmosphere - and how pure evil it sounds with the church singing in the background, the creepy synths and organs, and his voice really does it for me, although i can see how you would not get along with it. I just love that he sounds more demon than human. Really good range too - deep dark doom, to screeching high tortured agony.

I'm listening to some early AC/DC - the Australian versions of High Voltage and TNT.

I'm listening to the very best album of all time, again.
Goddamnit - by Alkaline Trio. I really don't care what anybody else thinks of this album, but i really want you all to give it a listen and draw attention to it because it is a modern masterpiece. Seriously this album is like my theme tune - every song has amazing lyrics that i can relate to exactly. If you ever get bored of 'feel good' music, and fancy a few songs about drunken loneliness, heartbreak, and the general low points of your lives there is no better work in the world than this theme for the masses.
Please guys give it a listen.
On the guitar side of things everybody names Matt Skiba as a pretty poor pop punk guitarist, but as a great fan of all his work - I've got to say he has an extremely unique style, and a very unique tone. Nowhere else will you hear such heartwrenching chainsaw jcm900 riffs. Honestly, although it's simple it is genius.

They sound very similar to the early days, but a bit more mature.

Monster Magnet's shiny new album, 4 way Diablo!

Randomly grabbed off the shelf:

Diamond Head - Death and Progress

Weird record - not bad exactly, but Diamond Head seemed to totally forget what Diamond Head were all about.  Every time there's a heavy riff, it'll be followed by a poppy, oddly American-sounding chorus.  No consistency at all.  Sean Harris was always a bit of a tit and his vocals here are pretty awful, but I still like Brian Tatler's playing.

(Just seen there's a new DH album out!)

eventually we'll turn every thread on this forum over to Tigertailz!!

i've been listening to Original Sin lately too, along with Young and Crazy, the first album you mentioned (for those who don't know).  i've never been willing to pay the (young and) crazy  :roll:  money it goes for on cd on ebay, so i've transferred my vinyl copy over to the computer and then to cd.  i agree that some of the Original Sin versions sound better, but it's still a great album!  i've been listening to their new one, Thrill Pistol, a lot too.

nearly every song is a gem. a proper desert island disc. they lost josh (their drummer) for the new one and his playing on the others is one of the things which made it for me, but i'll try the new one out, i hope its got some classic proggy bits.

Cool, Play.com does a 2CD set of In Keeping Secrets Of Silent Earth: 3 / Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Vol 1. for £6.99!

So that should give a good idea of where they changed from their older material.

I'm usually into tech metally stuff but I must say some of her music is extremely good. Not that kind (her first) was an amazing album. I remember getting it free with my first debit card bank account (when i was 11) and listening to it solid for ages. I wasn't into her self titled third at all but that first record she made (and the first four tracks of your greatest hits) was a corker.

Interesting examples of how some albums sound great after 20 years and some don't!  :lol:

I absolutely loved the first Vinnie Vincent Invasion album, it was my most-played record of 1986.  I thought their image was cool too  :roll: .  But last time I listened to it, I found it totally unbearable - all that screeching and, as you said, all the bloody solos are exactly the same!  Mind you, the second album All Systems Go was much worse - I thought that was shitee even in 1988.

I'm no audiophile, and I haven't got the patience to sit comparing the different CDs, but as soon as I put this on I thought wow, that sounds really clear, open and "big".

Everything remastered by Page sounds shitee, because he is deaf as a post now and has no high frequency hearing whatsoever. Also, he gets yes-man George Marino (who is not a good mastering engineer to begin with) to turn the knobs for him, and you end up with a product that's fit to cut glass when they're done with it.

Stick with the original Atlantic CDs if you can still find em, as they are copied straight from the master tapes with nothing done to em. They arguably sound better than the original LPs, but that's another discussion.

 :D I`m afraid so. There`s not a descent tune anywhere on the album, with the exception of United Alliance. Lots of very heavy De tuned riffing but nothing to show for it. The singer is reduced to screaming or grunting through thee entire album. The guitar solo`s are unremembered cr@p the production is very wishy washy, The drummer is totally unispiring when you consider how good he was on the last album this is a real disappointment. They used to be a black/death metal band & this harks back to that type of playing. lots of staccato riffing very fast but no real chord structure as such so there's nothing you`ll walk away singing. After 4 numbers i was yawning & getting very bored with it. Take my advice download this album & listen to it first before buying.

Wow I was telling the kids about them at the weekend, can anybody name the Pink Floyd connection ;)

Personally I have been listening to a lot of Steely Dan over the last week, particularly Bodhisattva, an afte all these years the solo from Rikki Dont Lose that Number, is my favourite solo of all time, the tone is so special (to me)

Thin Lizzy are SUPERB.

Emerald - One of the best arrangements ever.
Title: What are we all listening to at the moment.
Post by: jt on December 11, 2007, 03:41:51 PM
:D Have to agree on Lizzy !

Crazy Joe note it`s the Bass guitar work on Emerald that makes the entire song work. Especially during the solo section where the two guitars are switching from one player to another. Its the Bass work that holds the whole thing together & its not a simple single bass note line either, Lynott was one of the best Bass players in a Rock context ever. Every time i work in a original band & a Bass player turns up & wants to be apart of it i ensist they must be influenced by Lynots Bass work or i simply wont have `em in the band. Lynott is the bench mark for me as a Bass player in a Rock/Metal band. Simply one of the most underrated Bass players ever as was Brian Downey on Drums.

Yeh the bass is awesome in Thin Lizzy, Phil Lynott is a legend!
And yeah i hate bass players who just play boring bass lines, i want them to do something and be noticed as much as the guitarists.
Title: What are we all listening to at the moment.
Post by: jt on December 11, 2007, 05:12:47 PM
:D It`s always important for the Bass & Drums to hold it together, hence the term "Rhythm Section " Lynott succeeded in doing this brilliantly, & its for this reason all of you Rock/Metal players should be taking notice of Lynotts Bass work & Downeys Drumming. As you said not simple Bass lines but effective Lines all the same  :D

As a bassist by trade, I believe that bass and drums should be locked in tight together and for sure the bass can shine out but the best players know when to and when not to.Nothing worse than a three way attention grabbing contest. Mr Lynott was a great great player and he took bass playing in a direction that moved things on for certain.There are a handful who have done that to my knowledge and probably tons more that I am unaware of. In my band I get a couple of solo spots which is nice-I play with two great guitarists who are also very modest and appreciate the fact that they could not do what they do without the bass and drums holding it tight and funky.

Black Sabbath - Reunion

For some reason I've hardly played this since I bought it - I just realised it was recorded 10 years(!) ago and they're still um-ing and ah-ing about whether they're ever going to do another studio album.

That's almost as long as Ozzy was in the band first time round.  And they managed to record and tour 8 albums in that 10 years!

i used to DJ drum'n'bass on a semi-professional basis. anyway, since 2001 i got a bit cheesed off with the scene and didn't DJ that style any longer.

but the past few weeks my friends have badgered me to start again for their NYE and birthday parties so I set up my decks and had a little mix up, happily I wasn't too rusty. Playing guitar is a hell of a lot harder, and its easier to fall out of practise ;)

Anyway currently on the set list for my NYE party mix:

Justice, We Are Your Friends
Prodigy, Smack My Bitch Up
Pendulum, Blood Sugar
Madonna, Material Girl
Rozalla, Free to Feel Good
Billy Idol, Rebel Yell ;)

I quite like 'Come and get it'. My issue with it is the relentlessness of it, its so generic and cheesy. In my opinion nly 'Love Zone' is actually *bad*, the rest is mostly just average, but the album is a very wearing listening experience.

Heh, he also really good to a friend of mine (a real big Lizzy fan) who was hospitalised (and couldn't go to a Lizzy gig), not only did he visit when he was ill. But every time Lizzy was in town tickets and backstage passes turned up, and every now and again he was invited down to Dublin.

He was also very supportive of Sweet Savage (more local lads) which was the band that gave the world Vivian Campbell

Not only was Mr Lynott a great front man, musician and song writer, he was a damn fine person too.

Piece of Mind, Powerslave, Somewhere in Time, & Fear of the Dark :twisted:

Finally got round to buying them on CD.  I used to own them all on vinyl, but haven't listened to them since my record player broke in 2003.

Goddam, Somewhere in Time is a good album.  I'd forgotten just how good - possibly my favourite "golden era" Maiden album....

Was that intentinally skipping Seventh Son... and No Prayer For The Dying, or just by chance?

I've never been that fond of Somewhere, for no particular reason.  I really like Seventh Son..., but they were getting very proggy by that stage.  I think Janick brought some new energy back into the band, but he never seems to get much credit for it.  

They're as good as they've ever been right now, with all 3 guitarists!  :)

Just by chance - I bought those four first because I always liked them best.  Haven't got round to buying Seventh Son, Live After Death, Number of the Beast & Killers yet, but will do soon.

I probably won't buy No Prayer for the Dying because I never liked it (unless the collector mentality kicks in... :))

I have just taken delivery / been watching / listening to a 30 year re-union concert DVD of the ( 70s ) Welsh Band 'Racing Cars'.

They only have the one guitarist now ( Graham Headley Williams ) - but he still plays with consumate taste, skill - and sincerity . I met him back stage in 1979 - and he passed me his S.G. to have a play on without a second thought. Nice guy and great sense of humour.

It was so good to be reminded of a great gig at the old FFord Green pub ( Leeds) back in 1979 - and to hear musicians that play for the song despite obvious soloing talent.

Great stuff ...  :D

Good man !

My favourites being 'Bridge Of Sighs' and 'Live'.  Happy memories of the early 70s and damm good guitar playing / arrangements as well !

I am glad that Robin captured his best moments whilst he still had the great voice and Bass playing of the late James Dewar to contribute.

Live! is not only my favourite Trower album, but probably my favourite album of all time.

I also have a soft spot for Victims Of The Fury, because it was the first one I bought as a new release, back in 1980.

I've been watching Trower clips on YouTube, and it's amazing how quiet and completely un-showy Dewar was on stage.  Just got on with the job.

Been listening to some Robin Trower myself; Twice Removed From Yesterday and Long Misty Days, both on vinyl lol. Good to hear his name going around. He is a great guitarist, extrmemly similiar to Jimi Hendrix i find, but adds his own twist to it. One of my favourite R T songs that i have heard is I Can't Live Without You, from Long Misty Days  8)

Yes, " I can't live without you "  IS a brilliant track !  On an album that sometimes went a bit wide of the mark with things like the cover of "Sailing" and such, when "I can't live without you " comes on  - you know that you are back on solid ground ... 8)

I also agree with Philly Q  that 'Victims Of The Fury' is evocative. For me it was partly because it was the one chance I got to see him live - and close up to the front too. ( Robin Trower fans being so polite in a crowd situation   :D ). I think his album art/design is also striking.


I still think that 'Live' - and the track "Daydream" on the live album is for me the orgasmic RT experience. He can still teach these 'young pups' a thing or two about creating an etherial atmosphere and the use of melodic controlled feedback .  

Especially noteworthy as he achieved most of it as part of a 3 piece band .

I agree that long misty days was a bit off on the rest of the tracks, infact it's the only track on long misty days i listen to now really. I love daydream! But have only heard the version from twice removed from yesterday, i also really like the opening track from twice removed 'I can't wait much longer'. I am young and have really found my music tastes grow and develop in the past 3 or 4 years, after i found an old cd of my dad's A Tribute To Stevie Ray Vaughan', which led me onto the blues/rock side of things. I was just amazed at what i was hearing, especially from buddy guy and eric clapton on that album, as well as, of course, B.B king. It blew my mind

Glad to hear that your 'education' is being balanced well ... :D  I used to be a hardcore Black Sabbath / Deep Purple fan, until someone took me into a bar where the local band where playing Blues. Instant conversion !

If you like " I can't wait much longer " and "Daydream" from the studio albums, then PLEASE check out the 'LIVE' album from the same era, where both of those songs get the extended treatment.

I have always known that the casstte was evil (after all it's only rust glued onto a plastic tape and moving way too slowly)

However I have such a grudge against Wishbone Ash, I saw them in 83 and they wahere amazing then went to see them in 85 and they had degenerated into a 7th rate metal band (I even got into a fight with another audience member who wouldn;t leave my wife (then girlfriend) alone.

Wishbone Ash - Just Testing

This came out right around the time I was first getting into rock music and religiously listening to Tommy Vance (TV on the Radio) every Friday night.  I always meant to buy it, but somehow it took me 28 years!


Blimey Philly, that must have been some queue!

Well, you know how it is... the line next to you seems to be moving quicker, so you swap over, then find yourself stuck behind a group of German OAPs on a walking holiday who can't stop asking questions....

....actually, I think it was worth the wait.  What a great album!  :D

I've seen him a few times, the last being in 2004 opening for John Mayall at Hammersmith.  I met my mates in a pub by the river before the gig and Stan was drinking there with the rest of the band.  When he overheard my mates wondering what time we should leave, he said don't worry lads, I'll give you the nod when I'm going!

I got the new Ayreon album (01011001) and it's not bad but I prefer The Human Equation.

I think the problem may well be that Arjen picked a group of singers who were very similar for the album whereas on THE they were all very distinctive.

Recommended to anybody after classically-inspired electronic folk metal set in space with a side order of cheesiness (Arjen is not the best lyricist but, writing out of his native tongue, he usually does quite well until you get to some of the really tenuous rhyming in there).

THE and 01011001 can't really be compared though as they are just different experiences entirely IMO.

i'm listening to some more Witchfynde... the "Stage Fright" album. I really like the style of Montalo, the guitarist. He manages to stay metal, but does some pretty indie-ish guitar work at times. Creates a very full sound. I don't really learn other musicians songs, but I might have a stab at one of theirs just to learn some his tricks. Maybe the song 'In The Stars'... the main riff is so fu_ked up, i want to understand how it works

+1

I found that 01011001 suffered from the same problem as Universal Migrator and other earlier Ayreon albums.

The Human Equation would be very hard to replicate, and since it didn't really fit into the format of earlier Ayreon albums (it's more like Star One with added prog), I wasn't surprised at 01011001's fall from grace.

THE will always stand as one of my favourite progressive albums of all time, though.

I do really think their work has real merit though; for example I think that Bland Street Bloom and Peepshow are really good (they are, however, the only songs I know where the vocalists have a go at singing and not screaming)

I've had a re-listen to 01011001 and it's getting better.

Perhaps I should give Fear of a Blank Planet another run as I hated that album on my first listen and have not given it another listen really.

Could be a bit like The Mars Volta as I hated them first 10 or so times I heard them and now Deloused in the Comatorium is now one of my favourite albums.

i agree about the walk. that is tone. i need a podxt. i think the drums help in making it sounds unbelivably tight being midi programmed and they sound soooo good aswell.

I love it - He's got the whole Sikth clean voice thing going on, and some of the more interesting voices going on aswell, meanwhile the guitarists are playing meshuggah half the time, in songs like Inertia, and then Sikth in songs like Insomnia.

Yeah, and I've been wondering if some of the early Rush material (circa Caress Of Steel) had a bit of a Wishbone Ash influence, too.

It's funny, I was familiar with some WA stuff when I was a kid, I liked it but only had a couple of the albums.  But suddenly I've just connected with it in a big way - it's so melodic, even lightweight, but with tons of guitar.  And so British sounding!  

I'm buying the albums like crazy.  Not sure if I'll bother with all the post Martin Turner/Laurie Wisefield stuff, though.

Rush toured with Wishbone Ash and have always cited them as a latter influence during their proto-metal period. (2112, Caress Of Steel, A Farewell To Kings)

Mike Oldfield : Tubular Bells
Thin Lizzy : Live album that was given away with a newspaper a while back (I won't say which as I'm too ashamed to admit my dad got the Mail, if only for the offer...)

It would have been more but rechargeable AAAs are a waste of time really and don't last long enough to be worth bothering with but my parents are getting at me for my battery consumption. So basically; I ran out of battery power.

Witch - Paralyzed

J. Mascis's metal side-project.  I really love the first Witch album, which is a glorious slice of sloppy, ragged, '70s-sounding stoner metal, so I was quite excited to find the follow-up in HMV today.  

But this new album is much faster and more aggressive, more like punk metal or something... I don't like it.  Maybe it'll grow on me.

Too bloody sure I likr them.

They where the 1st gig I ever went to, and there where only 3 stabbings that night.

I was somewhat shocked when I found out that Hugh Cornwell played in bands along side Richard Thompson when he was younger

Hey hey! I thought you two would like The Stranglers!! :D  Your first gig was to see these Kilby? I was obsessed by this band from the age of 11. Their whole sound mesmerised me so I'm well envious!! Where did you see them? My mate in Glasgow saw them at The Barrowlands and his Sister Karen snogged JJ Burnell!!
I agree Phil, his bass tone was just something else, it all came about by accident so I understand.

It was in Belfast in Jan / Feb 81 and was a sight to behold.

Funny enough a friend of mine was told to fu*k off by Jet Black earlier that day. Apparently Jet was pigging out on his dinner just inside the stage door (for all to see). Needless to say he asked for an autograph and got offered some advice instead.

I also saw them in Alexandria Palace just before Hugh Cornwell left and I have to say it was one of the most dissapointing gigs I have ever been to.

From what I remember from a JJ Burnel interview, much of his bass tone comes from using 2 sharkfin picks. My daughters little Daisy rock bass gives a tone bery similat to the Peaches tone.

Check out the lyrics to Ugly and listen along. To those who don't know download ugly from the Rattus Norvigecus album, it's a fantastic song.


2 shark fin picks and a large marshall amp as well, didn't the sound engineer get it wrong when the recorded it but left the bass tone very loud in the mix as everyone loved it?

Here's the lyrics!

I could have read a poem called Ozymandias to her
Instead I lived for the moment
It was a futile gesture anyway
I was here, and she was here
Ana being broad, of minds and hips
We did the only thing possible

I guess I shouldn't have strangled her to death
But I had to go to work and she had laced my coffee with acid

Normally I wouldn't have minded but I'm allergic to sulphuric acid
Besides she had acne, and if you've got acne, well, I apologise for
disliking it intensely, but it's understandable that ugly people have
got complexes I mean it seems to me that ugly people don't have a chance

It's Only the children of the $%&#ing wealthy who tend to be good
looking An ugly fart attracts a good-looking chick if he's got money
(x3)

It's different for Jews somehow. it'd like to see a passionate film
between the two ugliest people in the world. When I say ugly, I don't
mean rough looking, I mean hideous.

Don't tell me that aesthetics are subjective. You
Just know the truth when you see it, whatever it is

Muscle power (x4

Did May use AC30s on everything? I love the tone on Princes of the Universe, but it sounds a bit fatter and gainier than Tie Your Mother Down, Fat Bottomed Girls etc. Either way I think I want one now :P AC15 head is £565 tho :cry: How about a treble booster into my laney, would that work or do you really need the vox voicing and el84s to get the right kinda sound?

No, it's just a straight up double live CD.  Even the booklet doesn't have much more in it than basic credits & a few live pics.

Some might says it's a bit of a con to release a third live CD in as many tours, but I'm not complaining.  They played "Digital Man" (one of my absolute favourite Rush songs) which made it worth the purchase price alone for me....

I think there's something about Dopesmoker, it feels more complete than Sleep's Holy Mountain somehow.  I don't enjoy it exactly, but I like to listen to it a couple of times a year just for the experience.  Unless I'm pressed for time, then I listen to Jerusalem instead.  :wink:

the first time i heard the lotus eater i was absolutely shocked at how different it sounded to anything else they've put out... i mean... clean vocals over a blastbeat! and they've never alternated between cleans and growls so quickly! i think the tracks are really good tho, and they're still managing to put out something unique every time... opeth all the way.

Opeth - Watershed    I'm really liking this despite not being a big fan of theirs. The songwriting and production is top-notch, and the new guitarist having a decent vibrato helps as well.

Veil of Maya - The Common Man's Collapse     Not a fan of death growl vocals, but the music itself is some of the best I've heard in ages. Amazingly tight guitar work.

Joe Satriani - Crystal Planet     Haven't listened to Satch in ages, and I'd managed to convince myself I wasn't too keen on his stuff. Listening to it again, I'm really enjoying it as music, not guitar w**kery.

Finished working for the afternoon, so Hot Rat's by Frank Zappa is about to be put on (before the wife comes home from work and tells me to turn it down/off)
I have the 'Peaches en Regalia' coin single from that album.
It is fantastic.

Currently listening to:
the new Satriani album
Paul Gilbert  - Silence Followed by a Deafening Roar,
The Formation of Damnation by Testament;
and the Buddy Whittington (John Mayall/Bluesbreakers guitarist) solo album.

Whittington gets such an awesome tone from a stupidly simple setup!

Currently listening to Mercenary while at work, but the albums that are doing it for me at the moment

Meshuggah - Obzen
Pure insanity. Meshuggah at their best.

Ayreon - 01011001
Prog rock genius, great vocalists involved (some of my favourite on the planet involved)

Decrepit Birth - Diminishing Between Worlds
Influenced by Death and Cynic but with their own sound, fantastic Tech/Death band

Iced Earth - Horror Show
Insanely good guitar tone, great album


Currently waiting for the new Pyramaze, new Evergrey (best band ever for me), new Iced Earth, and also whatever else will come out this year to kick me in the face :D

Yes, Aldrich is the leading guitar player, I would say - he and Coverdale wrote all the songs, but on the album Beach plays a few nice solos, and it works very well, because of how much his style contrasts with Aldrich's.

Whitesnake - Good to be Bad

OK, so I did buy it, and I'm finding it quite strange.  The songs are really good, and I like the guitar playing... but what in the name of all that's holy has happened to Coverdale's voice?  He sounds fine most of the time, but sometimes he's really high and thin.  And every now and then he drops into his old lower register, and suddenly he sounds like he's gargling a bucket of phlegm.  Has he had throat surgery or something?

And the production is bizarre - really dense and murky.  The guitars and vocals are half-buried in a big rumble of bass and keys - the guitar tones don't have any edge or clarity.  Except maybe the last track, which is a bit more like the old days when Coverdale wasn't afraid to have a really sparse production, with his voice "naked" at the front of the mix.  I really should have Lovehunter and Ready an' Willing on CD....

Depends on what era of Rush you like. You can generally divide Rush's output into the following categories:

Early era, very big Zeppelin influence: Rush, Fly By Night, Caress Of Steel
(Ric bass, Slingerland/Ludwig drums, lots of fuzz tone guitar; very high singing!)

Progressive era: 2112, A Farewell To Kings, Hemispheres, Permanent Waves, Power Windows
(Expansive arrangements, some of their most technical material)

Synth era: Signals, Grace Under Pressure, Power Windows, Hold Your Fire
(Lots of great 80s synth tones, 'big '80s' production; change from Gibsons to Fender Strats, Marshall to Gallien Krueger amps)

Modern era: Presto, Roll The Bones, Counterparts, Test For Echo
(Strats, Signature guitars, and finally PRS guitars; very high end production value; shorter songs that feature a lot more social commentary)

Neo Peart era: Vapor Trails, Snakes & Arrows
(Albums made after Peart's recovery following the tragic loss of his family. Back to Les Pauls for Lifeson!)

What Ben said!  :D

My personal favourites are Permanent Waves (the first one I bought as a new release, back in 1980) and Moving Pictures (often regarded as their definitive album).

Rush are one of the very few bands who (IMO) have never released a by-the-numbers, treading-water kind of album, and after over 30 years their new stuff is absolutely as vital as ever.

My least favourite period was the mid/late 80s when Geddy was using a lot of synths - Grace Under Pressure, Power Windows, Hold Your Fire.  They started going back to a leaner, more guitar-based sound on Presto and Roll The Bones, but for me the real return to top form was Counterparts, which I love (I seem to be in a minority in regarding that particular album as a landmark, but whatever).

The other big thing to note with Rush is that they've punctuated each "phase" of their career with live albums - nowadays they seem to release a live set after every studio one!  The live albums are all well worth getting.

But it looks like I shall be listening to them more after that!

at the right moment 'the wind of change' can bring a bit of dampness to the eye. other times its a bit too cheesy... today i can't get enough of this track for some reason. On the version on Live Bites the band absolutely nails it. Schenker's solo is masterful. Makes me proud to be a V player, and a european.

I thought you may comment on the telecaster :D I like the tone when it gets into it, the lead kinda thing he does. Mark, that Joseph Arthur video is indeed much better use of the looper.

I've just received my Indian Summer discography as recommended by indy. I've allready heard most of it but it's great, even when the vocals are shite it just fits! The packaging is awesome and yes once again I was sad enough to take photos :P

That is the best time period for music, imo.

The first album is hit or miss. It was produced by Iommi, and Brian May guest guitars on the song Circles. The songs Mainline Riders and Pleasure Seekers from the s/t are great.

By the 3rd-4th album, it's all good.

No reason not to like both.  Clutch is my favourite (post 1970s) band, but I still listen to horrid, spandex straining, cliche ridden '80s pomp nonsense. :wink:

Anyway, High 'n' Dry had the spandex (everyone did in 1980) but not a trace of pomp.  It's just a stomping hard rock album.

Hell, if you're the biggest Priest fan in the world you should be ambarrased that your favourite band have produced this tripe.

Do not waste your money on this abysmal record. It's everything bad about the trad/power metal traditions (which to be fair, IS pretty much EVERYTHING) in one glorius Spinal Tap-level arse-up. Hell, if you're the biggest Priest fan in the world you should be ambarrased that your favourite band have produced this tripe.


I think it's more than fair.


NP: Anaal Nathrakh - Eschaton


I'd be Embarrassed that I spelled embarrassed wrong... I'm listening to Joseph Arthur and Sucioperro. Also just got into Sparta,
i like what i hear so far.


I'd be embarrassed to be pedantic enough to pick out obvious typos.

I think it probably started out as ashamed  :lol:

Nostradamus...

And I'm not in the least embarrassed  :D

Well done chaps!

I'm not really into "metal" as such, but Judas Priest was the second gig I ever went to, back in 1980, and I've had a soft spot for them ever since. Angel of Retribution was OK, but it's not the sort of thing I'd listen to very often.

But this little offering, I had to get it the moment it came out, and I'm enjoying it very much. (Still not embarrassed!)

I thought it was going to be a bit dire with a couple of OK songs. But I like it all. It's not quite up there with Tommy and Lamb Lies Down but I think they've actually pulled it off.

I have to admit though, if it wasn't the Priest, I'd think it was a load of old b*llocks and I'd put the Lynyrd Skynyrd back on...!

-Unexpect: In a Flesh Aquarium
-Cult of Luna: Eternal Kingdom

-Quo Vadis: Defiant Imagination
-Scale the Summit: Monument
-John Zorn: 12 of the 100+ albums he's released :( can't find any more!

I thought you'd like that  :D

It is more a comment about my lack of open mind about some genres of music, though (or lack of time to investigate them) - I think I'm getting old  :?

I would definitely give it a go Phil.

Now playing, Unearth - the oncoming storm.

Guitars widdling a bit too much, not overly keen on the guitar tone, but on this record it's better than some of their others. Aside from that, superbly put together tracks, amazing drumming, I-WANT-THAT-SINGER vocals and otherwise, a thoroughly good listen!!

The first 2 albums are among the greatest ever recorded except for Amorica itself
Southern harmony & musical companion - the start of the blues-y country style
Shake your money maker - Blues rock n roll at it's finest!
3 snakes & one charm - trippy & the 'druggy' album, but girl from a pawnshop makes this an essential purchase

Marc Ford was a major part of why they were so good so it might be worth checking out his solo albums
It's About Time
Weary and Wired
these are anything like the crowes but class all the same

According to Wikipedia they may be working on new material.  :)

The book, though, is absolutely amazing!  I'm a sucker for a bit of fancy packaging...

I was really into them for a little while, up to Make Yourself, then I found Morning View a bit too mellow and only played A Crow Left of the Murder... a couple of times.  I should dig the CDs out again and give them another chance.

It's my favourite Iron Maiden album & one that has really stood the test of time (sorry, bad pun  :|)   - I defy anyone to tell me that Maiden ever came up with a better twin-harmony than the intrumental break on Alexander the Great or the end of Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner...

Killers is cool.. I like the Paul D'Anno stuff as it has more of a raw punk edge to it. I don't think Killers is as good as it could have been - I have a cool full length bootleg of the Maiden Japan show - and its outstanding.

Worst Maiden albums are surely the Blaze Bailey period, and I'm not keen on Matter Of Life and Death - Dance of Death was far better IMO.

Might listen to that bootleg I mentioned tomorrow. I'm in a real Iron Maiden mood after seeing them last Saturday! Originally I wrote off Somewhere In Time, but I've given it another chance, and its been well worth it - don't think it will ever be favourite though.

I think the best maiden albums by far are Brave New World and Dance of Death. Most are good, but have songs which let them down, but DOD and BNW are albums I can just listen to start to finish and never get bored.

A Matter of life and death is alright, very repetitive with the songs following the same pattern each time...
Slow clean intro - Dirty impacting middle - Slow clean outro. When I saw them live last year they played the whole new album and to be frank I was a getting a little bored towards the end. Then they played the classics and it was like being hit by a sledgehammer of awesome.

You can't say that, it's completely uncool to like bands' recent albums.  You're supposed to like their early stuff, before they "went commercial"...

 :wink:

But I agree with you.  I think since Dickinson and Smith returned Maiden have been better than ever before (and I've always felt that Adrian Smith was Maiden's "secret weapon").  The arrangements they've come up with for the three guitars on the longer tracks are just brilliant.  Also agree that A Matter of Life and Death was a little disappointing.

I think the current lineup is and always will be the best. When I was first getting in to guitar I had the whole of Rock in Rio audio on one mp3 track and I would just listen to it back to back, I think it has something like 26 plays(of the 2 hour track), it has an amazing mix of the classics and the BNW stuff, fantastic.

Speaking of disappointing new albums *Cough* Nostradamus *Cough*.

tokyo tapes - scorpions

now to obsess about it for a bit: ;)

you know, since i found out about this album 6 months or so ago, its has rarely been more than a few days where i didn't listen to tracks from it. for me its the perfect combination of the more commercial hard rock sound the scorpions had later, and the hippy/krautrock sound from the 70s (particularly from uli of course). i'm also a sucker for a great live album and crowd interactions. some of the tracks are really emotionally touching of course, but theres straight forward rockers on it to. i prefer it to the studio albums of the roth period, since theres no studio trickery going on.

i love this album :D it hasn't influenced me too much on the technical level, of what notes the guys are actually playing, but the musical philosophy and passionate spirit is something unique and i think it has influenced me.

Yea I know what you mean, I love all of their albums but some of them can get abit boring. I was really impressed with their latest album actually as it seems to be abit more straight forward rock. Still not quite as good as ten but definitely worth a listen.

Have you got Stone Gossard's solo album, Bayleaf?  I love it to pieces, it's just brilliant. :)

Pearl Jam - Ten (one of my favourite albums of all time)

Nah I haven't heard that, I'll have to try and buy it. Apparently most of ten originated from a cd of just instrumental songs written by stone gossard which was sent to eddie vedder and then the songs were made from there. You shud have a read of that article someone posted recently about pearl jam, its really interesting.

Edit: here it is http://bareknucklepickups.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=13505.0 its abit long but a good read

Yep, had that one ages now and really like it. Coil is probably my favourite actually which is odd considering its not really their typical style and has female vocals which I usually dislike.

Post by: Philly Q on July 24, 2008, 07:56:37 AM
Yeah, I know I'm in a minority there  :P . 

The first album has bigger riffs and more all-around Zeppelinesque bombast, but I think Out Of Exile has much better songs and sounds more like a proper band.  Then Revelations is good, but a bit rambling and unfocused - I suspect Cornell was already thinking of quitting. 

I never expected the band to last very long, to be honest, but it was good while it lasted.

Do yourself an even bigger favour & get "Rush in Rio" on either CD or DVD.  IMO the DVD is everything a live DVD should be - absolutely fantastic live performance in front of a manic crowd, wonderful setlist (the best setlist of all their live releases) + a documentary that's almost worth the purchase price alone.

Actually, what the hell, do yourself the biggest favour you'll ever do yourself & get ALL the Rush studio releases & all their live releases :D (except "A show of hands" ;))

Is that the clear vinyl "Evening Star" 12inch with Green Manalishi and a live "Beyond the Realms of Death" on it? Happy memories... :D
It's the first JP I bought, immediately after seeing them on the British Steel tour.
One the first non-Bee Gees records I bought!!
And it's the only piece of vinyl I've ever owned that isn't black!

I have to agree with MrBump though, when I finally heard the original Fleetwood Mac version 5 or 6 years later, much as I like JP's, they seem to have completely missed all the menace in the original.

Meanwhile I've been listening to Free Live.

ok philly ;)

10 pounds at the last witchfynde gig (£5.49 for download version). Cover art is slightly naff (in a good way!), as every Witchfynde release it is it seems (sort of high camp black metal style). nice colour booklet though with the lyrics and some photos.

on to the tracks, theres 10 of them, two of which are covers:

'Play It To Death' - pure NWOBHM of high quality, I love the main riff, its very them. proper guitar tone.
'Holy Ground' - another classy NWOBHM track which they're playing live.
'Elements' - not keen, sounds a bit like 'Death and Progress' period Diamond Head, listenable though
'Sticks And Stones' - good track, but doesn't quite float my boat, again very 'Death and Progress' Diamond Head style
'The Darkest Places' - the most meh track on the release
'Lifes a Killer' - decent, surely though Montalo has better riffs up his velvet jacketed sleeves
'Three Wise Monkeys' - yeah! like this one alot, pure NWOBHM again
'Shame The Devil' - cover version
'Love Like Sin' - dark sort of power ballad, good stuff
'Paint It Black' - cover version of the famous Stones track. its quite experimental, i'm not sure they pull it off. i'm sure many will love what they did to it... i'm gradually warming to it.

Overall, its all listenable stuff, nothing terrible. I would say three really outstanding tracks... Release is worth the money, I love the band and am happy to support them with this

I love that track!  The End Of Silence is my favourite Rollins Band album.  They weren't the same without Chris Haskett, even though the bluesy/funky hard rock style of the Mother Superior lineup is the kind of music I normally like.

Ted Nugent:
Double Live Gonzo (ditto, but I do remember it being this good before my vinyl wore out!)
5 albums (nice little cheap "box set" thing - 5 studio albums in carboard sleeves "Ted Nugent" through to "Scream Dream", never owned any of these before.)

Wishbone Ash - Live Dates (had it for years on vinyl, don't remember it being this good...)

The remastered BGO version or the MCA 2-CD? (Just curious, I'm completely obsessive when it comes to Wishbone Ash!  :lol: )

Ted Nugent:
Double Live Gonzo (ditto, but I do remember it being this good before my vinyl wore out!)
5 albums (nice little cheap "box set" thing - 5 studio albums in carboard sleeves "Ted Nugent" through to "Scream Dream", never owned any of these before.)

Yeah, I got the Rory boxset, just working my way through slowly.  Must get the Ted box, and maybe the Cheap Trick, BOC and Jefferson Airplane ones too!

It's the single disc BGO version of Live Dates Philly - didn't realise it was "re-mastered" but I was reaching that conclusion listening to it.

I thoroughly recommend the Ted box, puts a smile on one's face! It seems the first three ("Ted Nugent", "Free For All", and "Cat Scratch Fever") are all remasters, they have extra live tracks, as well. "Weekend Warriors" and "Scream Dream" are not though.

The sound is definitely better than the MCA version, but to fit it on one disc they've had to cut out the little bits of chat between songs, which is annoying.

Ah! I wondered how they managed that. I don't remember much in the way of chat, which is why I hadn't noticed...

I'm less familiar with the first Live Dates - although I love it now - I prefered the Laurie Wisefield line-up at the time, and therefore the sound of Live Dates II (and the fact that I'm on II, that's me at Andy Powell's feet at Bristol Colston Hall... :lol:)

It is a bit softer than the first one in places IMO, but it's got some really great songs. Devil's Queen and The Ghost of Floyd Collins are favourites of mine. It took a few listens for it to grow on me too, and I was a big fan of the last album.

Motley Crue - Saints of Los Angeles

What are your impressions of this?

I quite like it. There's some pretty strong songs on there. Mick Mars is a much better rhythym guitar player than a lot of people give him credit for. The lyrics are quite self-referencing in places, talking about their 80s exploits on the Sunset Strip, but I'm letting them off cos they actually did all the stuff they talk about for real!  :wink: If I were being critical, a few too many of the solos descend into wah soaked feedback, but overall I thought it was a solid album - a good 7 out of 10.
Title: Re: What are we all listening to at the moment.
Post by: Will on August 31, 2008, 04:07:27 PM
I agree with you there, Mick is a great rythme player.
To me though, it doesn't seem like the real MC, its more a more dark feel, and more contemporary - I guess thats what they were going for.
The first few songs could have been better, it only really got going after S.O.L.A.
Definately agree with you about that wah thing though, can't stand them any more, that is the kind of thing that pisses me off. He does have an excuse to be lazy, I don't think he is doing too well though.

Thats right, Gilmour is on quite a bit of it. Tim Bricheno had left after the first two albums (I heard him say that he hated the stuff he was playing with them just after he left.  He was talking to a friend of mine in Spectre Sound in Bingley).  Which is strange as he has rejoined them again now!

I wouldn't say Powerslave is necessarily the best place to start - it has some excellent tracks, but it also has "Back in the Village" (worst Bruce vocal ever, IMO) and "Rime of the Ancient Mariner", one of the most boring of 'Arry's extra-long epics.  But keep going!  :)

You think?  I've never worked out what the lyrics were about, but it's one of my very favourite 'Maiden songs
"Rime of the Ancient Mariner", one of the most boring of 'Arry's extra-long epics.
Now that's something we CAN agree on :) although I love the guitar solo section (the bit after the spoken verse over quiet bass).  IMO "To Tame a Land" from Piece of mind, "Alexander the Great" from Somewhere in time & even the title track to Seventh Son are better epics...

EDIT to fix embarrassing typo... :)

I like the guitar parts, but it's one of those archetypal "galloping" Maiden songs - even though it is (was) their trademark sound, I've always preferred the more melodic stuff.

But mostly it's the vocal melody, especially on the chorus - it makes my ears bleed, I really hate it.  :x

As for the epics, some of them tend to sound as if Steve was so fascinated by the subject matter that he wrote lots and lots and lots of words, then Bruce really struggles to cram them all into the melody so the words sort of stumble over each other (a bit like some Manic Street Preachers songs, where there's all that arty-farty philosophical stuff - again, too many words to fit the melody!).  It sounds really awkward - and that certainly applies to "... Mariner", and "Alexander", I think.  I prefer the more recent mini-epics, where there's more music and less words, like "Paschendale" and "Blood Brothers" (I do like the big instrumental section of "... Mariner").

Hard to say, it's difficult to compare them with anything else!  I only really know the major-label albums, La Sexorcisto: Devil Music, Vol. 1 and Astro Creep: 2000.  Before that they apparently had a much more underground, experimental sound in the Sonic Youth vein (that's from Wikipedia, so don't blame me if it's wrong!).

Anyway, the albums I know have big, catchy, somewhat repetitive grooves (it's almost like dance music played by a metal band, in a way).  There aren't many guitar solos but there are lots of crunchy metal riffs and little audio snippets from old horror movies and trashy B movies (which I love, so they made me like the band too).  Rob's voice is quite growly but not in a death metal kind of way, you can make out what he's singing.

I never bought any of Rob Zombie's solo stuff, but I do like the films he's directed - even the Halloween remake!

Oddly enough I've just come into a Best Of Zappa CD and a Waits CD.  I'm liking the Zappa stuff, but I think that it could be a bit tiresome.  It's odd, because I got Steve Vais Flexible years (decades...) ago, and of course I can hear all the Zappa-esq bit now.

Waits I'm not sure about.  Probably an aquired taste, I guess...

I did the same... but again, not literally

Right at the moment I'm concentrating on Howlin' Wolf - got a compilation the other day.

I already knew about all the "Chester Burnett & Willie Dixon getting ripped off by certain young white boys in the 60s/70s" stuff, and I know a lot of the songs, but what I hadn't realised was where certain styles of singing and arrangement might have come from... Tom Waits being a case in point.

See if you can get her into Howlin' Wolf first :D

The wife moaning at me from the kitchen because I "used a good bowl to put a drink for the cat in"........ Who the hell cares, tell me that.

A brilliant and under-rated book, like the sequel, "The Long, Dark Tea-Time Of The Soul"...

Adams dying was a terribly loss.  He was such a witty writer.

Though TO, whilst I insult your taste in music, I'll ask a favour quick rather than starting a thread. I'm looking for a vinyl set up, from scratch, so absolutely everything, not outrageously expensive but something that's worthy of bothering to get my favourite albums on vinyl. Any particular brands to look at? You seem to be the man in the know.
