Music recommendations

Post by Gob »

A sticky thread for new music/bands/events you may encounter.

I'll start;

The Magnetic North.

It's clearly been a long time since you've had a young child around...

Just when is it that I'm supposed to "encounter" these "new music/bands/events" of which you speak?

I'll be sure to give a full review of the next animated film that Pixar churns out.... 8-)

It was not my idea that it had to be current.

Personally I think ones choice in music says volumes about an individual.

Always interesting...

I'm really loving sun 0))) Someone said it's as if Brian Eno and Venom had bred, then the hellish offspring would be sun 0))) :D

The trouble for me is that all I listen too these days is music from my glory days, (1970-1990) and early music.

Like Jim, I find picking up on new stuff is very hard.

Decent music ended in the mid 1970's.

Gimme those old standards from the 1940's :ok

Your collective inability to acknowledge this obvious truth makes you all look like fools.

Thanks for that rube.

Instead of actually posting your usual interminable crap, if you would just (as you have in this case) substitute the words, "Interminable crap", it would be much easier on the eyes.

I did a search for an Interminable Crap video or even one song by them but couldn't find one.

Are they a local Santa Cruz band?

I'm not surprised you couldn't find anything on them Joe, they were a very short-lived group back in the late 80s....

The band went through a series of name changes; In addition to Interminable Crap, they were variously also known as Unlistenable Garbage, Repetitive Bullshit, Fingernails On A Chalkboard, and This Really Sucks.

The group finally disbanded in frustration, unable to figure out why they were having such a difficult time attracting an audience....

I see.

Maybe the Bad Shit band could use some marketing advice.

Maybe if they were to add some 'Oldies but Goodies' to their repertoire?

Interminable Crap became "Butthole Surfers"

Now to get us back on track, ('scuse pun,) after; "the worlds leading expert and lover of his own opinion," turned this thread from one of appreciation into criticism. (Note he offers no selection of his own.,)

Here's a lovely bit of "post rock" from Disco Inferno.

Camper Van Beethoven were a local group in the 80s.

"Take the skinheads bowling" was one of their bigger hits.

But there are a lot of better local musicians.

Bob Brozman for example:

And then there's this:
