What are you listening to right now?

Recommended Posts

Heading to Dublin on Wednesday to see Killing Joke so working through the setlist from last night. One of the great bands, always a pleasure to listen to them.

I've also become aware of these guys. If you like the idea of old Scorpions gone super heavy with Klaus Meine mixed with Lenny Wolff on vocals, then give this a few minutes of your time.

Not sure if their name, the group opening for royal blood in Newport. Sort of American punk. Bass player has a very shiny ric like bass, which I assume is a ric. Seems to make a mushy sound

I’ve been listening to/watching Lari Basilio since she popped up on my YouTube suggestions. Her backing band for her upcoming album are: Nathan East, Greg Phillinganes and asinine Colaiuta - not too shabby. She’s also just been announced for the guitar and bass show next month.

XTC.

I put together a 30-odd track playlist to accompany the book Complicated Game; it just cherrypicks tracks from White Music through Wasp Star.

As in a playlist of the (I think) 30 tracks covered in the book - or just some of your own favourites?
I hope it contains everyone's favourite "Colin is a genius" bassline that was actually written by Andy™.
(
Although Colin still is a genius. As is AP.)

Oh yes, that is them.

Hard to tell how good they were with the sound being that mushy

I’m been massively bingeing on XTC the last few weeks. I’ve loved them since Drums and Wires but I go through that cycle of not listening to them for a couple years and then listening to nothing but them for three months. 

Also, a young Norwegian singer called Margrete, who’s doing some very interesting dark electro pop stuff.

re-acquainting myself to Richard O'Brien's finest work, The Rocky Horror Picture Show Soundtrack.

I played in a Rocky Horrible tribute band in the 80s for a Miss Australia contestant's fundraiser and it was a blast. Easliy the best gig I played.

We had a killer band, male and female singers, guitars bass keys sax drums, all in costume.

I love the dynamics in his songs, in the basslines especially. Soft passages leading into full on rock and roll.

Science Fiction, Sweet Transvestite, Hot Patootie.

Can't listen to the Time Warp again though, it was overplayed to death over here in the 80s and 90s.

"A great day for freedom" from the Live in Gdansk album by Dave Gilmour.

He has played some superb solos over the decades but the solo on GDFF wrings every drop of emotion from a very poignant song. I just played it in the car waiting for a meeting and I am not ashamed to say the tears were rolling down my cheeks. Mr Gilmour has the gift of playing just the right notes at just the right time to enhance the emotion of a song and bring it to an edge so sharp its easy to cut yourself.

Right at this moment "Things That Dreams Are Made Of" by the Human League...in a pub in Chapel St Leonards ..having already been treated to Talking Heads and the Stones, while a band is setting up a few feet away and I'm almost tempted to peek in the guitar cases they've left on the next table lol

Reminds me a bit of Ian Astbury too. I quite like this.... 🙂

The new Scott Stapp album..... 

Sounds like Shinedown at their very best. Not a bad song on it either 😊

I'm envious, but.. isn't a box set of unreleased tracks an oxymoron 🙂

Indeed, perhaps I should have said "previously unreleased". My inner (and outer) Civil Servant language and grammar pedant hands his head in shame.

And you should be envious, it a blooming great collection - esp the tracks of Rory backing Lonnie Donegan, Muddy Waters and Albert King!
