My son used to listen to slipknot, so I used to play along to it , thankfully he now listens to blues 😁

Ha ha. I remember John Peel introducing a Slipknot track saying “It’s amazing what teenagers mistake for disturbing these days”.

I like some ridiculously heavy music but less and less frequently these days and nothing (imho) beats Reign in Blood anyway, and before anyone says ‘That’s not the heaviest’, I agree, it’s just class.

Back in the day with a rock fan friend of mine I saw , black sabbath, hawkwind , hawklords , queen , pink Floyd , led zeppelin, the sex pistols, the jam , the police,  but the heaviest was motorhead 🙂

Blimey, yes, I remember seeing them at the Corn Exchange in Cambridge, they had to close the venue for a fortnight afterwards because Mötorhead apparently caused some structural damage, excellent.

Get the Knack, by The Knack.  I had to learn My Sharona for our set.  Not at all difficult (although it tires my pinky out somewhat) but it got me into the song and I realised then how blummen good it was, so Mrs Bassfinger downloaded the album for me.

This. With a guy called Thundercat on the bass. And the two following records, so 4 discs. This guy is really prolific.

And this, certainly the best jazz album of 2019.

The song from Channel 4's Tiger That Came To Tea adaptation. Going round and round and round in my head.

Ah, Kamikaze Washington!! Always thought he was a bit Emperor's New Clothes, all honk & squawk; but after a bit more of an extended listen, decided he's alright.

Don't know the other one at all, so will find it and give it a listen.  Thanks!

Nothing very edgy or new - I used to run to this album a lot because of the relentless pounding rhythms:-

Hope you like bass and especially fretless ERB.

Just discovered an old German rock band (with British vocalist) called "Lucifer's Friend". Enjoying their pomp/classic riffing rock, particularly their late 70's/early 80's material....

You need one when you play 12 strings ERB necks. 😉
