    The new Oh Sees album is really delivering for me. 80 minutes of wild psych garage rock.
    Just another great album from them.

    I almost expected this to be a recording of you in the bog having a huge poop. Almost.

    Still undecided whether I'm disappointed or relieved.

    Smackrats screaming at the bottom of my estate.

    I was hoping to have progressed further in life at this point.

    Being just shy of 50, I've long had a soft spot for 60s and 70s music, largely due to listening to my uncles' record collections as a teenager. There are a few blogs I occasionally read that cover music from the era, and one of them recently introduced me to a couple of albums from 1973 and 1974 that are jawdroppingly good.



    Jobriath should have been a megastar, but his story is a lesson in how hype can backfire big time. It kind of mirrored what can happen with games (e.g. Aliens: Colonial Marines, or No Man's Sky) - where the hype surrounding a game can actually result in a hostile reception. In his case, he was unfairly dismissed as a poor man's Bowie, but, man, listen to the albums - they deserved to sell so much better than they did. Both the self-titled 1973 debut and the Creatures of the Street follow-up from 1974 are sooo good. There's also a great documentary on Amazon Prime and Vimeo that's worth a watch, if that floats your boat:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/video/detail/B00FT4GX7G

    https://vimeo.com/ondemand/jobriathad

    Way ahead of his time musically, and I fear he was also way ahead of his time in his openness about being gay - I suspect that contributed heavily to his lack of recognition :(

    Here are a few of the tracks that I could find on YouTube - not going to be to everyone's taste, but hope some of you like it :)







    There's definitely Bowie influences in there, as well as Jagger, but some of it is quite Beefheart in parts, and the production is great. Phenomenal keyboard player, too.

    Fear Innoculum from Tool is pretty cool. It's both the most Tool album they've done and the least Tool album they've done; like they've distilled what's good about good about their music and just gone for something which, at face value, is a little dull but trips, grooves and rocks in all the right ways.

    It is, essentially, their most commercial album to date and none the worse for it.

    I'm not much of a fan of the music but that's a belting post, thank you.

    Trying to have a full listen to Tool's fear Inoculum. I've listened to bits on the plane and bits while mowing the lawn and so on. But not had a full listen from start to end yet.

    I've been listening to Rage Against The Machine properly for the first time in years and daaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn

    The clarity, the passion, the focus, I guess it got a bit lost in a blur of angry teenage angst at the time but looking back and considering what mainstream rock music looks like now they really were an insanely radical and unique proposition
  • Deleted user 10 September 2019 23:51:36
    Totally agree. Rage seem timeless the older I get. Just feels so honest.

    RATM are hacks. Every time I hear them I think of "The Sound of Muzak" by Porcupine Tree - "music of rebellion makes you wanna rage, but it's made by millionaires that are nearly twice your age".
