Tom Waits & Primus doing an instrumented reading of some Jack Kerouac stuff.
My preference lies somewhere between classic rock and metal, for the most part I like bands such as AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Def Leppard, ZZ Top, etc. I don't mind listening to rap, if the song has no words, just the beat is nice (rare occurance, eh), but I just hate pop.
Revolving between Vast, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and Explosions in the Sky lately...well for 4 months I've listened to little else. Very satisfying musical experiences.
I have one: they are depressing and angry as hell. It's not fun long-term listening. I love them and respect them myself but get a full case of malaise if I listen too long. Tom Yorke is a sop. Enough said.Originally Posted by Fugazi Dave
Been listening to Bring on the Bright Lights by Interpol again and again, lately. Also Low Life by New Order. I have come to like their bleak look at adult life during the superficial '80's. The Berlin wall hadn't yet fallen. Distrust and Reaganomics reigned the political world, left and right, the "free world" and the communist. Plus, it illustrates the bitterness that laid beneath the so-called triumph of conservatism of the age. Wow, that was way too academic for this post. Oh well.

This Heat "Deceit"
My avatar is from the cover of this album. Amazing post-punk that came before punk. A musical anomaly, so to speak.
As I sit in my Cubefarm on a lovely day, waiting for the weekend, I am surround by the percussion skills of Quest Love (Ahmir Thompson) and 2 other jazz artists running out their styles on "The Philadelphia Experiment" (ropeadope records).
King Britt remixed this (damn fine job too), and his effort prompted me to pick this up. I am happier having heard both
Comsat Angels "Waiting for a Miracle"
Scorn - 'ellipsis'
Mutations by Beck.
Cyclists of the world, unite! You have nothing to lube but your chains!
The Good Idea single by Sugar.
Just bought the new CD from Eskimo Joe. I could be listening to this for a while.
Orange Juice "Rip It Up"
Check this song out. Bowie-esque dancepunk.
