What music are you listening to?

Recommended Posts

I’ve been listening to a lot of Warren Zevon lately. I’m a bit late to his work, but he was a genius songwriter. 
 

I’ve spent the last week watching  old MTV documentaries, reading his biography and listening to his fabulous albums.

I haven't bought a CD for years, until about 3 weeks ago I bought a Fisherman's Friends album from Amazon :D 

 

Dad's got a CD of the late Don Williams in the car, I can like or hate Country music, some of it's great, but by the same token some it makes you want to go out and shoot somebody! :lol:

Advanced Technology by Empirion. Can't believe it's 25 years since this classic techno/industrial album was released. It contains the much-played single Narcotic Influence (the one that has that sample of a woman saying "drugs taking their lives away").

It's half of a good album. The 'Ghosts' suite itself is stunning. Multifaceted and epic. 'Grace Darling' is one of the most wonderful evocative love songs ever written. The involvement of a choir was a masterstroke which still sends shivers down my spine. 'The Life Auction - Impressions of Southall from the Train/The Auction' and 'Remembering/You And I (When We Were Young)' are all 'classic' era Strawbs that should be on all 'best of's.

However, the downside: they were chasing another big hit. 'Lemon Pie', 'Where Do You Go?', 'Don't Try To Change Me' and 'Starshine/Angel Wine' all sound almost forced for radio play.

I'm listening to lots of things, but a local band worth mentioning are Promenade Cinema, an electronic duo who have made some high quality music Their last album Exit Guides, from which this song was lifted is well worth downloading:

 

 

Also the Chromatics album from which this title track is snipped is well worth listening to:

One act I never saw live. Saw Martin Chambers when he did his stint with the reformed Mott the Hoople, but never The Pretenders.

I have this great career cross-label overview. He remains virtually unknown in the UK I reckon. There's only 'Werewolves' that most would recognise.

The Dragon/The Light Of My Life decided that I wasn't going to watch the football. No, as it's a nice day, instead I would be painting drawers from the g-kids' bedrooms outside.

 

Cue total ipod immersion.  I'm a huge fan of the shuffle option. Not knowing what's coming up next is a cheap, yet satisfying, thrill.

 

Pen and paper at my side, this is how the past few hours unfolded:

 

The Small Faces - 'Afterglow'

Steve Earle - 'Devil's Right Hand'

Kiss - 'Crazy Crazy Nights'

The Kinks - 'Brainwashed'

Neil Young - 'Lookout Joe'

Captain & Tennille - 'You Never Done It Like That'

Erasure - 'Drama!'

The Temptations - 'Can't Get Next to You'

The Clash - 'Hitsville UK'

Crosby, Stills & Nash - 'King Midas In Reverse' (live)

Richard & Linda Thompson - 'Night Comes In'

The Specials with Amy Winehouse - 'You're Wondering Now' (live)

Queen - 'Liar' (single edit)

Neil Young - 'Everyone Knows This Is Nowhere'

Professor Longhair - 'Everyone's Blowin' Part 1'

Maria McKee - 'Afterlife'

Rick Wakeman - 'Life On Mars?'

U2 - 'Twilight'  

Bowie - 'Drive In Saturday' (live)
