5 Replies and 2635 Views What do Stacey's Mom, Bullet with Butterfly Wings, and Mmmbop have in common...?  2635  5 Started by  Father Roneo Sensini Tinted Windows, thats what! The new hybrid supergroup comprising James Iha (ex-Smashing Pumpkins), Taylor Hanson of Mmmbop fame, the bassist from Fountains of Wayne, and Cheap Trick's drummer. I was going to review them for the album section but their self-titled LP has been out since the end of April so its well past its zeitgeist-date.. Despite Taylor Hanson's naff musical beginnings - luckily they don't transfer on this effort - it's not bad. It is unashamed power-chord-driven pop roc...

6 Replies and 2887 Views Philosophical question (inspired by Metallica tribute band)  2887  6 Started by  John Doe My loving girlfriend decided to treat me to a weekend away in Cork to celebrate my birthday. On Friday night we went to see Jinx Lennon - mad Dundalk guy who sings brilliant songs about the assorted nut jobs roaming the streets of Dundalk. Reminds me a lot of Mark E Smith.   On Saturday night we went to see, of all things, a Metallica tribute band. Surreal but hugely enjoyable. I'm pleased to be able to report that despite my advancing years, I can still mosh.  Sad but true.   And now ...

0 Replies and 1659 Views Album release lag/creep  1659  0 Started by  Binokular Another 'Is it just me...' thread. Is it it just me or is there something strange going on with album release schedules these days. Some albums spend so long on the interweb/blogosphere hype machine, you'd think they'd been released six months ago, yet when you go to buy it, you find it's not actually in the shops, by the time it comes out, you've almost lost interest. Thats what I call 'Album Lag' Then other stuff just creeps up on you, like the new Sonic youth one, there first time yo...

1 Replies and 2054 Views We need Irish music in Costa Rica  2054  1 Started by  RichardBlank After reading a few threads,I wanted to introduce myself to this community and look forward to sharing ideas with other forum members. Besides the 80s music and Latino flavor, Costa Ricans would really enjoy some real cultural music with a kick. In Arizona, I used to go to many Irish pubs and really enjoyed the music and atmosphere. An Irish bar here would make a killing.   Best regards,   Richard

1 Replies and 2334 Views Jay Bennet RIP  2334  1 Started by  eoghan I just learnt that Jay Bennet formerly of Wilco just died. He was only 45. I remember seeing him play with Wilco in the Olympia in 1999 (or was it 1998) and at the very end of a what was an extraodinary gig Jay threw his guitar into the audience. The house lights come up and a shocked roadie comes out pleading for the guitar to be handed back! May he rest in peace.

0 Replies and 1582 Views CLUAS on Facebook  1582  0 Started by  eoghan Following the example of half the developed world CLUAS last week launched its presence on Facebook. If you are a CLUAS regular and also have a Facebook profile be sure to 'fan us' on the CLUAS Facebook page. A hundred or so have done so already. In doing so you'd also help spread the word about the site, kind of importannt considering many people seem to spend more and more time on Facebook, good to give them an occasional tip about heading off to another corner of the ould interweb thing.

15 Replies and 6478 Views Bell XI - The Bra Detector?  6478  15 Started by  Iambeave I'm a bit puzzled as to the lyrics of Bell XI's The Great Defector. Aside from being a huge step down from their older material in its lyrical quality ('You’re the chocolate at the end of my Cornetto'!), it contains the baffling idea that an underwire bra can set off an X-Ray machine - presumably at an airport. Has anyone's bra ever gone off in an X-Ray machine Without going into too much detail about my undergarments, (ahem), I travel a reasonable amount and I've never had anything like th...

2 Replies and 2430 Views Noise Pollution  2430  2 Started by  starbelgrade I was out digging the garden the other day, while my neighbour was out sitting in the sun, having a few beers. Fair play to him - I'd have liked to be doing the same thing, but the ground won't dig itself. To make matters worse, he was blasting the 'Best of Bon Jovi' at full blast from the house. Surely there must be a law against this sort of carry on
