Bit of a change of pace for me this week -- mostly blues all week (been one of those weeks): John Lee Hooker, T-Bone Walker, Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Robert Johnson, Lightnin Hopkins, Little Walter, etc. (and Stevie Ray Vaughan as soon as I can find that CD case).

Right now: Peter Gabriel, Shaking the Tree.

I've loved his work since he fronted Genesis.

Heavy and Loud (yet talented)...bands that come to mind in no order

System of a down
Black Sabbath

I even like some of the more recent rock/punk. None of it comes to mind.

Easy listening,pop and hiphop (I hate hiphop) is not on my list excluding the odd really talented performer with actual emotions and talent. :)

Dannihilator 11-23-03 11:41 PM

Drop Kick Murphys right at this moment, next will be Bosstones, after that Devil Driver.

james Haury 11-24-03 02:42 AM

What do I listen to?,classical mostly, sometimes folk or Novelty tunes ( stuff you would hear on Dr Demento) Praise and worship songs and christmas stuff,which is good all year round. James

james Haury 11-24-03 02:52 AM

Does anyone read? What are you reading? I am reading Silas Marner and also Changes in the land. James

poululla 11-25-03 02:04 PM

Ian Brown - Music of the Spheres

willic 11-28-03 11:02 AM

Tveitt.. A hundred Hardanger tunes. Just bought the cd this afternoon, and it`s bloody! awfull.

Playing it for the first and probably last time as I`m struggling to put up with it for much longer.
So much for a recomendation that this guy is a composer to place in the historic list of the likes of Mozart, Beethoven and so on. They must be "joking" its just an undecipheral cacophany of noise. Garbage!!!!!

Present classic composers suck!!.
If anyone can tell me of one that is listenable and could possibly join the list of the greats compared to the two mentioned above?, then let me know.

franklen 12-02-03 11:35 AM

Am really into (Uncle tupelo, Jayhawks, Old 97's, Whiskeytown, etc). At work I listen to Internet radio and just discovered a free player from Netscape/Spinner with a ton of free stations with great variety, one a full on station. Just got the reworked No Depression disc from U.T. with a few bonus tracks and am looking forward to Ryan Adams' Rock n Roll disc.

I like to sing on the commute to and from work and I have started posting my fave songs that I belt out during the ride on me bicycle commuting blog (

As for reading, I love Russian authors for some reason. Right now Boris Pasternaks Doctor Zhivago, thank goodness I never saw the movie beforehand, nothing against movies here though.

justalittlepup 12-03-03 05:25 PM

Anything hard and fast. Right now I'll got Ministry and Crystal Method.

Buzzbomb 12-04-03 08:46 AM

Alt. Country rocks. I've got an old Emmylou Harris disc spinning right now, Elite Hotel. Next up will be Steve Earle. Yesterday I was listening to the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I've been reading Steinbeck's East of Eden lately...

franklen 12-04-03 08:53 AM

Although I also listen to pop, hiphop, R&B, electronica, classic rock, classical, etc, I'll bite on this one, because I can't stand modern pop country on the radio. Alt-country on the other hand is something different.

Western, country, insurgent country, no depression, etc, etc, the list goes on and on as it is really hard to classify a band or song as alt country, and vice versa, it is really hard to describe just what alt country is. But you'll know the sound and the style once you start listening.

I really don't mind any of the labels, its whats inside that counts (sigh). But I would only object to the term "western" (and flat out "country"), not to pick on you, but because a lot of this music has its roots in the apalachian regions, the midwest, and the eastern coal/mine towns. Thats what I feel in my blood when I listen to this music. The lush wooded hills of western PA and the appalachian mountains, the weary laborers of the factory towns, and the soul of those who make the music from those places.

Buzzbomb 12-04-03 09:02 AM

Franklen, have you heard the Greatful Dead's Workingman's Dead? A great album, with all the really cool appalachian stuff. An album I've been listening to lately is the tribute to Gram Parsons, Return of the Grievous Angel, great stuff. It's got Emmylou, Lucinda Williams, Gillian Welch, Beck, Steve Earle, Wilco, just excellent.

Edit: Just ignore little William over there in the corner, he likes to troll.

Buzzbomb - Love everyone you mention from that Gram Parsons tribute, haven't heard it myself though. And I've listened to the Dead for years, great album, Workingman's Dead.

Some other stuff I've been listening to lately (not necessarily alt country):
Counting Crows - Hard Candy; Ben Harper - The Will to Live and Diamonds on the Inside; The Thrills - So Much for the City.

Buzzbomb 12-05-03 10:10 AM

Another alt country band got the nod this am. Neko Case and her boyfriends. Cool stuff.

Jay_2004 12-06-03 07:11 PM

franklen 12-08-03 08:28 AM

Jay_2004: Did you know that started as a twist between punk rock and americana?

from Legacy Recordings website (promoting Uncle Tupelo's Anthology):

The first and only retrospective of these pioneers!

Uncle Tupelo was born in the tiny railroad town of Belleville, IL, when high school friends Jay Farrar, Jeff Tweedy and Mike Heidorn started their mutual quest to blend their punk rock roots and their increasing fascination with the traditional songs and sounds of American roots music.
