9 Replies and 3011 Views An Evening of Reading, Music & Conversation with Nick Cave  3011  9 Started by  jan Anyone at this A magical evening....marginally marred by some pretty dull questions from the audience and far too many 'Nick will ye sign me buke will ye' requests. The music, however, was breathtaking....from opening with West Country Girl to ending with Into My Arms via Tupelo and Red Right Hand...the timbre of Warren Ellis' spindly fingers, the groove laden tremor of Martyn Casey's bass and Nick Cave's bespoke brand of cool that can in an instant warm a stone from the inside out. I'll...

8 Replies and 3392 Views Finding old Albums  3392  8 Started by  Idiot Kid When I go running I normally do so by borrowing my wife's iPod Nano (despite the fact I hate all things Apple) as it's nice and compact and doesn't add any extra weight (my belly does that!). Last weekend though, before I ran the half marathon I found a really old creative MP3 player that, when I charged it, I discovered was full of albums I don't listen to any more.  The most enlightening discovery on it was how good JJ72's eponymous debut album still sounds.  Fair enough, not everybody ...

6 Replies and 3267 Views Streaming Gigs  3267  6 Started by  PeterQuaife Hello allWas wondering if any of you know of any good streaming gig sites / archives I would have been a regular viewer of FabChannel before its demise.

4 Replies and 2629 Views Cool bands on TV chat shows  2629  4 Started by  aidan While poking around YouTube for videos of bands I noticed that US chat shows (Letterman, Conan O'Brien and the like) seem to have a lot of performances by hip indie and alternative bands - Grizzly Bear (perhaps why they went top ten Stateside), St Vincent, Andrew Bird and the like. If there are any American readers here, can you tell me if this perception is correct I think it's great that such non-mainstream music gets mainstream air-time.In Ireland, have there been any decent bands on the La...

I didnt realise that it was released already. Has anyone heard it If so, what are your thoughts I'll be purchasing it myself asap. I think it will be very interesting to see how certain individuals have got on in unfamiliar surroundings, out of their comfort zones and in some cases perhaps without being lead by their front men...

10 Replies and 3863 Views Stuff you really shouldn't admit to...  3863  10 Started by  eoghan Out of the blue this weekend I heard a track I hadn't heard in years but one that I always loved. But it was also one of those tracks you should really never, ever admit to digging. Excuse me as I take the risk to obliterate whatever remains of my already massively depleted street cred and own up. The song I am talking about is (cough, splutter) 'Walking on the Chinese Wall' by Phillip Bailey and Phil Collins. Anybody else out there prepared to admit to liking something as thoroughly despera...

3 Replies and 2933 Views Music that's aged badly  2933  3 Started by  Binokular Ever had an album in your collection that you thought was great at the time, but nowadays, while just about listenable, would just not hold your interest Just listening to 'Utopia Parkway' by Fountains Of Wayne and while the whole tongue in cheek cheesy power pop thing seemed like fun at the time, now it just seems a bit dull. Any you could list

3 Replies and 13006 Views Favourite Album Covers  13006  3 Started by  Rest_Energy Firstly, I love the Blur: Best of album cover because Julian Opie is one of my favourite artists, and it's one of few album album covers I can actually paint. Secondly, I think the cover artwork for Tiger Army's 'Music from Regions Beyond' is great, if not a bit unnerving. I left out the obvious ones like Joy Division because they're a given. What're your favourites
