2 Replies and 3616 Views OutKast's B.O.B = song of the decade?  3616  2 Started by  eoghan Polling your writers to find the best the stuff of the decade is so in at the moment. First up CLUAS did so a few months ago to find the top 50 Irish releases of the last 10 years. Now Pitchfork is at it to find the best song of the decade. And their number one song of the decade so far Outkast's 'B.O.B'. Groovier people 'round these parts may think it is pure genius but that high bpm jungle sorta stuff floats no boats for dour old me here. Am I alone

3 Replies and 3375 Views European music festivals  3375  3 Started by  aidan Have you ever travelled from Ireland to any European festival If so, was it for its reputation, a specific act, part of a holiday, perhaps living in that country once and knowing the festival... Do continental festivals like Benicassim, Sziget, Roskilde, etc advertise in Ireland Either in print or online with banner ads etcYou might have seen all the recent gig reviews from La Route du Rock in Brittany - a fantastic little festival but one that (like Ireland) always seems on the brink of fin...

2 Replies and 4103 Views Looking to buy some home recording equipment  4103  2 Started by  whiterob81 As the title says. I'm pretty much a complete novice when it comes to this. Basically, I'm just looking to buy an audio interface and a midi controller keyboard for home recording. It's only for recording home demos and that sort of thing. Purely a hobby thing. I don't really have the skills or the money to be investing in anything too high tech.Also, i probably should mention that I'm not really looking to record vocals, drums, acoustic guitars or anything like that just yet.I have been using b...

10 Replies and 4306 Views Radiohead: no more albums  4306  10 Started by  aidan Thom Yorke has said in an interview that Radiohead will only release EPs and single tracks from now on: www.guardian.co.uk/music/2009/aug/1...-radiohead(Apparently he says that he 'can't bear' the idea of making another Radiohead album. Me neither, as it happens.)

2 Replies and 3138 Views Is this the worst cover version ever?  3138  2 Started by  Idiot Kid I'm no Killers fan but I used to quite like When we were Young; that was until I heard this version by The Noisettes: Is it just me or does a lot of it, especially the vocal harmonising, seem out of tune

2 Replies and 3271 Views Labels increase their revenue share  3271  2 Started by  eoghan Check out these pie charts. they are from the Gower’s Report (a study of intellectual property rights in the UK conducted by former FT editor Andrew Gowers). Labels are getting a bigger slice of the digital download cake than they do with CDs! Will this persuade more acts to go it alone, a la Radiohead and NIN Or will artists succeed in a push for a bigger slice of the cake I think it more likely that the iTunes of the world will angle for a bigger slice, and may just succeed....

3 Replies and 3844 Views Bob Geldof Discovered Gravity  3844  3 Started by  Idiot Kid No, it's not the name of some new progressive indie band.  It's far worse.  A study of 5,000 kids in the UK (aged between 6-15) has shown that 5 think that Bob Geldof discovered gravity. Sauce: The Telegraph Any other 'musicians' you reckon could have come up with world changing theories.  I fancy Ian Brown could have come up with evolution myself.

But U2 earlier this week announced they are contributing 5m euros to the 'Music Education Scheme' which aims to 'offer children and young people in Ireland the opportunity to learn a musical instrument and/or avail of vocal tuition'. Their 5m will be topped up with 2m euros from 'The Ireland Funds'. As someone who, after about 18 years of procrastinating finally took the plunge 2 years ago to learn my favourite musical instrument (the trumpet) I think this is quite so...

15 Replies and 4178 Views 2009, an average year for music?  4178  15 Started by  stephen Is it just me or has this been a very average year for music so far I really haven't heard a really special album this year. Even Wilco's latest seems distinctly underwhelming (though is that a surprise after their last effort). Maybe the Doves have stood up but I still prefer The Last Broadcast to the latest.   Probably the Super Furry Animals' new one is the best of a bad bunch. Though I am looking forward to the new White Denim and The Low Anthem.
