Music small talk, music big talk

Post by RITH » Mon Oct 08, 2007 09:23

Everything is music. This is the thread where we talk about music-related things that you can't or won't say in any of the other threads. Be random about music and the noise it makes, about sounds and silence and emotions and words and...

Go on!

This weekend I've spent a lot of time, again, listening to girl pop groups of the 1960s. Most of it is silly, but in a brilliant way. It's like the indie-pop of ancient times. (I'm aware that above statement is like saying that Elvis had some influence on music history, but it needs to be said every now and then.) More spine-tingling female vocal harmonies in current indiepop, please!

I suppose that most of us here are indie pop at the moment. But I was listening to some quite noisy stuff I used to listen to in the mid-90s when I was dusting the other day.

I sort of felt guilty for still really loving it.

In short, Deirdre, is this normal?

It is.

As is 'Mother Universe' by The Soup Dragons.

Not really.

There's nothing wrong with embracing the noise Sam, if it makes your ears smile (to quote a line in a certain fanzine of the mid 90s, whose name I can't quite remember!) then why be bothered what people think? Admittedly, this comes from someone who unashamedly still listens to Slayer...

Thanks, Chris Proops.

Lisa was shouting at me to 'turn that row down'. I'm a battered housewife. With chips.

Heh. PoorSam.

I was listening to the Sexy Sam/I'm From France single by Girls Against Boys the other day. It's still fucking magnificent.

You know what's even worse than listening to Celine Dion?
Waking up at 4 AM because your neighbour is blasting Celine Dion.

Stuff nightmares are made of, if only I'd been asleep.

Justin Curry (Del out of Del Amitri) came into Fopp today and bought his own album.

Thats almost as funny as the time he fell over in the 13th Note Club steaming and rolled under a table and had difficulty getting up, then nearly fell down the stairs in his rush to leave due to high embarrasment factor.

Half of Gary Barlow seems to have gone missing.

Does anyone else ever hear some music and think it's so bad that it has to be some sort of joke by the industry? That they're just taking the piss, seeing how shit they can make stuff that they're releasing and still get the NME and Q magazine dribbling all over it?

I've only started getting this impression lately. The first act it happened with was The Subways. Then there was Katie Melua. And just now it's happened again with Kate Nash.

Gah! It's like, wake up, people! They're laughing at you as you give them your money.

Come to think of it, does Q magazine even still exist?

I saw shonen knife here some years ago-they played with (post-vaselines/pre-eugenius) captain america, so that dates it

it was 16 years ago... oh, good grief! anyway if they are as rockin' and fun as they were that night when you see them in new york you'll have a good time

Wow, they're still going? I saw them open up for Nirvana in Bradford in 1991. That was such a kick-ass show. I'll by in NYC in November--maybe I'll check 'em out.

Ooh, same tour I caught - did you have Captain America/Eugenius on the bill too?

I don't *think* so. We got there a bit late, though, coming in fr. Leeds. It was in the town hall cafeteria w/those stackable plastic chairs and all; got whacked in the head with a flying one and felt very rock and roll. Came in just after Shonen Knife went on. They ploughed through about 20 songs in 8 minutes. Then Nirvana--as yet unjaded--were absolutely blazing. What a gig! I still remember it so well. Despite not be able to remember yesterday.

Trawling through my records just now (moving them from one place to another - just an excuse to sit on the floor and fondle them, really), I was very nearly tempted to put the Senseless Things album on to remind myself of why I bought it. There must have been a reason, after all.

I resisted.

'Too Much Kissing' is a fine song.

As I remember.

From 17 years ago.

You may have done the right thing.
