  • What are you listening to?

    I am setting this thread up to rival the coarser, lazier, vulgar Americanist street vernacular "Whatcha listening to?" thread.

    Over there, they can continue to discuss the latest "gangsta rap" and "skiffle" to their hearts` content. Here though, we shall discuss real music, not that fucking awful garbage that passes for in some quarters. Here we will discuss music of class, music of substance, music of virtue. Music as the highest possible expression of humanity. Music as art. Music as beauty. Music as the breath of God.

    There, they can continue to adumbrate the cacophonous soundtracks of their meaningless, artless lives as they stumble through their never-ending Japanese nights of eikaiwa drudgery, conbini hamburgers, lager in the park and grunts on mouldy futons.



    OK, I shall kick things off - at the moment I am listening to the Arctic Monkeys`s new one. Pretty good. They is all dressed as clowns for the video to Flourescent Adolescent. Check it out:

      "Sherry" by SADS.

      One of their songs that's often looked over (probably cuz it isn't punk, sounds more like classic rock at some parts).

      I love this song, the video isn't exciting but it's kinda simple and beautiful.

      Watch it, dammit!

            Nobody ever played Bach better than him. You can keep your dinky harpsichords and Rubensteinesque romantics. This man was the sh!t.

              I, by the way, am rather enjoying some Kapsperger, played by Paul Odette. The man has a way with arppeggiation.

                    Pulled out the Bach Partitas today played by GG. Such control over every note.

                    I know the film well, by the way. Did you know, on a bizarre side note, that someone is selling copies of his chair online?

                    Odd...

                        Yngwie Malmsteen. 'Rising Force'.

                        Neoclassical shred...surely it is a genre that deserves to come back into the mainstream?

                            The Cars--Live in Germany, 1978. Bye Bye Love (not the Everly Bros. Classic) is great, especially in this garage band form.

                            If you're a guitar player, check out Elliot Eastons chops. The man is very underrated and can make some great riffs.
