What are you listening to right now?

Recommended Posts

As per a previous TBer's mention of her single (which also jumped out of the radio for me), and after her featured artist slot on R6 music. Downloaded the Albertine Sarges album. Have to hitch the phone via my Hi-fi but still comes over pretty well. Intelligent pop music with only a couple of duds (IMHO).

Single was "Free" earlier on in this thread per posts by @Nail Soup and @Old Man Riva.

Also a new Collab between estimable Danish Guitarist Karl Mörner Ringstrøm and Bassist Henrik Lindner of Dirty Loops.

The one song of theirs I still like - don't know why I was so keen on them. Can't stand Billy Corgan now.

I've been listening to Lita Ford's solo stuff from the Lita album. She's not the greatest singer, it all seems a bit cheesy now, and there's some pretty poor songs on the album, but: Back to the Cave, Kiss me Deadly, Falling in and out of love (I think Nikki Sixx Co wrote this? Not sure), and Close my Eyes Forever the duet with Ozzy... They're some cracking songs. 

My Mrs and I watched the film about the Runaways quite a while back and I was surprised how little Lita was in it, barely any dialogue, just someone angry with the main protagonists Joan Jett and Cherry every now and then. I knew of Lita Ford mainly through seeing a duet she had done with Lzzy Hale of Close my eyes forever. I went and got hold of the Lita album and am glad I did. No idea if any of it would "work" in an 80s covers band where you want the audience singing along to every song, don't know how big she was over here in the 80s?

One of my favourite songwriters - I have quite a few CD's of hers - but not this one - I've must have sung 7-8 of her songs at open mics. In recent years she has sounded more and more like she's "under the influence" of something - a bit like John Martyn the 3rd and last time I saw him - all the words sounded so slurred together. Her 3rd, self-titled album is one of the best albums I've heard but I like that simple singer-songwriter stuff you can do without a band.I might even have this disc but I don't remember the track. I always thought she had some great people in her live band.

I have a fairly big Spotify playlist of cherrypicked tracks that I take immense pleasure from playing on shuffle.  In the last twenty minutes it's swung from Ace Frehley, All Saints, Fighting With Wire, The Buble, Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox.

I'm listening to our own stuff, something I rarely do, we said goodbye to our guitarist and more importantly friend yesterday, he passed away from covid on January 23rd.

Good idea... when I read the book "The Rotters' Club" by Jonathon Coe it made it was set in 1970's and made a few references to the band "Hatfield and the North".

So I checked out HATN.... and discovered that the second album was called "The Rotters Club". I do like it when a book links to music.

Unfortunately on this occasion I did not become a lifelong fan of the band ☹️.

On Edit - I mean did not become a fan of HATN (not stewblacks track).... but they were OK.

Ah yes, Birdhouse in your Soul is still one of my favourite songs to put a smile on my face.
