I came across this guy's youtube channel by chance and liked his approach and then realised he had an album out. Some cool tracks in there. These are two of my favourite ones.

 

A nice if a bit generic 'soaring guitars' type of track... butit works for me. Love the bass in it too.

 

This other one is probably my favourite "Seance". Especially when it gets to teh 2:30 mark or so.

I created a long Garbage playlist yesterday, I really liked the first album and the b-sides from that period, but lost interest after Version 2.0 came out; I've bought the albums, but never really listened to them.  I'll admit I hated No Gods, No Masters.

 

 

Tim Burgess had a listening party last night for Beautiful Garbage.

My Mobile phone. I'm waiting to speak with someone from the State Pension Service. The music keeps being interrupted by a voice giving me advice about going online or calling back later because they are busy. 

The music, although a short repetitive ditty, is the least annoying that I've experienced whilst hanging on the end of my phone.

yeah agree, they started on a high with the debut but in general subsequent albums got patchier. IMO Bleed Like Me is their second best as it has more good than poor tunes. Never liked Version 2 much despite its rep.

Believe it or not, currently listening to the Shadows. Ive ontained a 6 CD set which contains all their studio recordings from 1958 to 1966.  All of it is good, some of it positively brilliant.

 

This covers the period where Jet Harris played, and latterly Brian Locking - Jet Harris has quite an ornate style, and as he develops his style you can hear a lot of stuff based on scales.  Locking is a simpler player, often locked into the root notes, and while not a bad player isnt half as good as Harris had become.

The quite excellent and hugely underrated British act Charlie from the late 70's....

 

 

 

 

You look at the that set of album covers and know it's a sterotypical 1970's white, all male, rock band. Then listening to the first track the slidehow is more of the same, until one of the pictures is of the band - and you were right! 😁

 

Good songs though. 👍

Jet Harris was the first bassist I was aware of and listened to very carefully. I didnt have a bass or even a guitar but I still mimed his playing in my bedroom.
