What are you listening to?


Recommended Posts

My mate was at that gig and is a huge fan. He introduced Bonamassa to me a few years ago but alas I am thoroughly unimpressed. Yes he's a good technician but I don't hear any beauty neither in his guitar and especially not in his voice.

 

Are your mates initials SF? Out of curiosity.

 

And it's different strokes for different folks rocket, I was genuinely impressed, voice & technical ability.

 

Always looking to broaden my Musical Horizon, but I really struggle, and I mean really struggle, to enjoy anything modern and in the charts, always the lesser known Musicians I find myself enjoying, the likes of White Buffalo, The Fumes and now Bonamassa, if you can recommend anything ( Blues/Folk/Acoustic ) I'd be sure to give it a listen.

Okay, so I am late to the party with The Cure, have to be honest and confess I had no idea who they were! But someone in my company had this on and I was digging it right up until the guy started sing

No, he's HM, a Scot living south of London.

 

Absolutely different strokes. He loves him. I don't. But he did introduce me to Fleetwood Mac, a band I never cared for until he insisted I listened to some lesser known tracks.

 

Will come back to you with some great music I'd not heard before this week, including some stuff recorded before I was born, introduced to me by our 18 year old. I knew she loved music but didn't appreciate how deep her knowledge is and how broad her tastes are.

I am Fleetwood Mac daft rocket! In my top 3 of all time ( Springsteen, Eagles & Fleetwood Mac ) " Sara " & " Storms " are 2 gems as well. Funny thing is, I fucking detest that She-Devil Stevie Nicks, loathe her. Buckingham for me, is the brain behind all of their success, she writes good lyrics, I won't dispute that, it's her fucking petulant behavior towards Buckingham that I can't tolerate, not that she gives a fuck  :rofl:

 

I will give the others a listen tomorrow  :thumbsup:

KFP,theres a few strains of blues,from the old Black guys like Howlin Wolf,Muddy Waters,John Lee Hooker,BB King to guitar based ones which I prefer like Stevie Ray Vaughan

 

 

 

Robert Cray is bluesy with good lyrics 

 

 

Never been into folk that much but Aoife ODonovan is a modern day acoustic/folk singer I can listen to

Wow. Aoife O'Donovan fantastic. Never heard of her.

 

Different strokes etc. - couldn't listen to the other two!

 

Hendo, with rocket on this one, Vaughan is someone that's always recommended to me, but I've never been able to get into him for one reason or another. But that O'Donovan was a pleasant surprise, nice voice and easy listening, will look more into her  :thumbsup:

I've been salivating for last few months at drummer Phil Selway from 2.15 to 2.25 where he hits his kit thirteen times before going off screen.  This one bit has taken me to another planet right now emotionally!!!!  Not even a fan of Radiohead but curiously bought In Rainbows album and found this Live performance which we adore.  I believe it is the apparent peace in his face that I crave myself.

Series 5 of GF Newmans 'The Corrupted' is currently on BBC Sounds

 

Series 1-4 have also been re-added so you can start from the beginning.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b050z5cf

 

If you haven't heard of it, its the story of one particular family told by the son who is in prison for a crime he didnt commit with each series covering a different decade in UK history (each episode covers 1 year) with fictional characters being written into 'true history'. So you get people like the Krays, Thatcher, Major, Blair etc.

 

Series 1 - 1950s

Series 2 - 1960s

Series 3 - 1970s

Series 4 - 1980s

Series 5 - 1990s

 

Part of me wants everything done and dusted after this series but another wants to see how the Character's deal with Blair's exploits and the 2008 crash, and perhaps even how they could deal with Corona virus.

Just knew the band as a part of an Austin Powers joke but this randomly came up in my Youtube recommended videos feed.
Chicago bulls fans will probably recognise it.

New to Emmylou Harris, glad I found her, great voice. 

Saw her live in Glasgow about 25 years ago, the Wrecking Ball tour. She has indeed a great voice although that gig and album was a bit out of her usual and not her best.
