Another one I like that I feel has attitude:
Big fan of the Nirvana and Soundgarden too

Oh well then, gotta take a trip next door!Charlie Poole and the North Carolina Ramblers
Echoes or ripples. I think everyone is listening to everyone else. I often find it surprising, a Rock guitarist will rave about Abba. I often imagined that on a small island like Jamaica, reggae musicians would be self referencing, but many were influenced by American Soul singers.Echoes of Kraftwerk or the Blue Men
Post whatever you like, It's all good fun.Is this a place where I can post weird stuff? Testing the waters.
Dont know, I know Down at the Crossroads was about that, so maybe it was a folk tale of some sort he appropriated to grow his own myth a little? I read somewhere about crossroads being significant somehow in folk magic or similar.Post whatever you like, It's all good fun.
Doesn't that whole 'Devil went down to Georgia' come from the story Robert Johnson put out, that he met the devil at a crossroads and swapped his soul for his guitar skills? It's become a popular myth.
6 Music is good, listened to it casually sometimes. I havent lived in the UK for 8 years though, didn't realize John Peels son had a show.I see Radio 6 Music as John Peel's legacy. It was started by one of his producers, most of the DJ/presenters grew up listening to him and knew him and of course his son has his own show and has John's dry wit.
Only came across them in the last year or so. I seem to like their earlier stuff more from what I've listened. The collaborations with Orbital and the Prodigy didnt really hit me. His lyrics are really, really good.I also like the Sleaford Mods, there's humour and comment on society, plus Jason's voice and attitude.
I imagine you're a fan or have at least come across the old 'IDM' scene from the nineties and onwards. Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, Autechre, etc? The real ambient stuff is usually a stretch for me, but when theres a beat involved I'm often in.And now for something completely different(it's a chilled Sunday afternoon). I've heard a few recordings of glaciers moving, cracking and melting.(It's also something they included in the Steep game)
And of course there are ecological and existential considerations.
This fits in with my sound art interests + they have made their own complex instrument and even use melting ice recorded live with hydrophones.
The 'deal with the devil' is probably as old as time—so even older than me, if that's possible—but Charlie Daniels said "it may have come from an old poem called 'The Mountain Whippoorwill' that Stephen Vincent Benét wrote many, many years ago (1925)"Doesn't that whole 'Devil went down to Georgia' come from the story Robert Johnson put out
Well of course, you must start with my march!music from every country, every era
I had been wondering about how or why everyone had chosen their forum names.Story is that it's an old clan marching song, and the bards played it for 3 days and nights at his grave after Brian was killed in battle in 1014, after uniting the Irish kings and clearing the Vikings out of the island.
Name given to me by my troops when I was still in the US Army (30 years).I had been wondering about how or why everyone had chosen their forum names.
Goat is good, have to have a bit more of a look at them, like the tribal drums.Just so much choice these days. I stream Tom's show online(if you're ever curious, fri 9pm)>
BBC Radio 6 Music - listen liveListen to BBC Radio 6 Music live streaming. This is radio station from London ,England, UK and broadcasts content in alternative format.radio-live-uk.com
Listening to some Croation Tech house station presently.
TBH I'm not sure how much Finnish music I found probably not that much. I've got suitcases full of tapes and mini discs but have only remastered and tranferred a selection to my playlist.
Maybe you could share some contemporary Finnish music with us.(just realised Brian already has as well)
Yes Billy Nomates has something.
I do have a fascination with those Northern countries, my father's family were Vikings, here via Normandy.
I'd like to do a tour of Sweden, Goat are another band I like.
Acid techno like Chris Liberator, D.A.V.E the Drummer and the Stay Up Forever stuff? Have old friends who used to DJ that kind of thing around Bristol and London a long time ago.No I hadn't heard of any of those. I also hadn't heard Autechre before, but will listen to more, sounds like my thing.
I don't listen to radio much or watch tv either( only streaming online and YT , Vimeo, etc) .
They seem to wallow too much in nostalgia and repetition. I also on purpose don't know much about the background to music, I usually try to take it at face value. I did get introduced to Sleaford Mods and Goat (Let it Burn is another good one, there is something tribal, pagan forest dwellers about them), Todd Terje on Radio 6.
I'd really prefer listening to DJ sets when I get out, more of a mix and more interesting. When I moved to this city most of the people I knew where Techno, or Acid Techno DJ's, some great nights out.
I do find with art, it often helps to know what the artist is attempting to convey and that context often makes it more accessible.
Not knowing the lyrics doesn't bother me. I have got at least 500 African tracks on my playlist, no idea what they are singing about though.
Also a Radio 6 intro>
Would the wah-wah girl and friends count?chanting where the voice is used as another part of the music
No, cats are so last week. Alpacas rule!internet likes cats right?
Since you like them, you might like Wardruna.Heilung
People like Matt were always so friendly to me, went out of his way to be so. When I moved to that area of Bristol, like I said, everyone seemed to be a DJ, so I was always being invited out to parties.@ipman I think thats after my time, I mostly stopped going to parties before the first Boomtown fair. Some old friends I have still do the festival circuit, kids and all.
