What are you listening to right now?

I don't actually like this song, or Muse especially*, but my bass tutor gave it me as a practice exercise. It's taken a while just to get a properly comfortable hand position, and the stretch from F to C and the little riff was quite hard and a good test.. Just about sorted now, except need to speed up.

*Before the Muse mafia come round I will say that I have seen them live twice and they were fantastic on both occasions. Just a bit shouty listen to on record 🙂

I've got a big thing for Scandinavian electronica with the likes of Biosphere, Lindstrom, The Field, Solar Fields, Carbon Based Lifeforms and Ugress on constant rotation.  Currently it's Norwegian dude Prins Thomas and...

I forget just how good Bow Wow Wow were, such great musicians, Annabella Lwin, Matthew Ashman (RIP), Dave Barbarossa and the brilliant Leigh Gorman on bass, perhaps the perfect pop band imho...

Heard this for the first time today and haven’t stopped playing it since. John McKenzie on bass, apparently.

If Ari Up was Californian and woke up in a studio surrounded by a late-70s funk band... I give you Annette Peacock: 

 

I've just discovered this too! Fantastic stuff...

This is haunting me at the moment - wonderful singer, and the whole thing reminds me what Dusty Springfield would maybe be doing if she was still with us.

One of my wifes favourite. In fact his whole first album. Not as keen on the second

Currently listening to the new Queensryche album, The Verdict. And the shocker is that it's actually quite good, definitely the best since Promised Land (and that was 25 years ago!). OK, so there's not many original members of Queensryche left now, first we lost the lead guitarist and one of the main song writers, then we lost the vocalist (who happened to be the band's other main song writer) and now we appear to have also lost the drummer, but if you forget that the band have become a bit of "Trigger's broom" and therefore maybe a bit of tribute act to themselves, the actual album is a pretty good 45 minutes of music. It's a lot more varied than their previous offering, which was a bit of a tedious and relentless ride to be honest, and has a few songs that can stand up quite competently alongside the better stuff of their earlier back catalogue.
