One I did actually listen to yesterday. The various musical icons that died this year have gotten me wondering if they are something of their time that can never be repeated due to things like taste, consumption and media becoming more fractured and mashed up . . .
Nice Bio. RIP Chuck. Couldn't resist having another peep at this clip this morning. The glares and stares from Berry are almost as priceless as the sulk from Richards at the telling off from the headmaster...
Right indeed, Carl and Anne. Live forever.
I really find it exciting when I rediscover some artist that I have never heard of. But over the last decade or two I have been noting as a considerable few of the younger lads and lasses discover music that is in my bones. They really like it. And they learn about history. Because, of course, many individual guitarists now spend a lot of time in their life learning to play like Chuck Berry.
Although I know it is quite normal, expected and so froth. I really do sometimes feel a bit sad, really sad when these artists (much less my actual friends) die. Chuck Berry was actually exceedingly cool, probably helped me understand the meaning of the word when I was young. _________________ Politics and Cycling in the South of France
Warning for the british sea power song, it has flashing lights so any person with epilepsy should avoid
from a history point of view, i love from a name point of view that they are touring with pictish trial
i always had the sense that the british they use in their title was the pre-ango-saxon brit (and their allies of the picts in present day scotland) _________________ Hi
Nice one! That's a movie I would love to see again, I must go digging. For years I had it in my head that cybershocker Tetsuo:Iron Man influenced Akira but only now realise that it must have been the other way around, or maybe confluence, as Akira was a year before. And light years before anything else too...
I have always had a soft spot for PJ Harvet, but Let England Shake a couple of years ago (five years, really??) was as good a Mercury Prize winner as anything. I have had Polly's Hope Six Demolition Project on heavy rotation the last couple of weeks and it is a worthy follow up
It's getting on for 20 years since I last saw Parliament/Funkadelic/George Clinton but the missus informed me that I'm bringing her to see the man himself next month when he plays Dublin. Love, the pleasure and the privilege is mine _________________ "I'm playing all the right notes. But not necessarily in the right order."
Smashing gig the other night by Cherry Glazerr who were much trashier and loud than on record. For those of us of a certain age, Clementine would remind you a little of a youthful Beck and following a similar curve. Anyhoo...
Just to finally prove that old punks simply won't fade away The Skids rocked up in town tonight and put a huge smile on the faces of a surprisingly large number of people that conveniently left their dignity and decorum at the door on the way in
The Youtube comment says it's one of the greatest intros ever and it isn't wrong. The middle bit and the outro ain't too shabby either _________________ "I'm playing all the right notes. But not necessarily in the right order."
