Music: Listening and Sharing


Recommended Posts

Digging through a lot of old stuff... and suffering several bad cases of nostalgia in the process. Dusting off my collection of old Joan Jett DVD's I put on my headset and just started blasting away at full volume. Found a youtube video of one of the tracks

 

edit: that should have read CD's, not DVD's... oops. Music videos on DVD's weren't really commonplace 20-30 years ago.

joan jett is fantastic. am recalling a late 80s interview with her from some late night show and we thought she were from long island, 'cause she were talking 'bout ny as if it were her hometown, and she sounded like billy joel's little sister. has been a long time since we looked, but am pretty sure she is original from eastern pennsylvania and am knowing she went to high school in socal... or at least some o' her high school were socal. 

weird trivia, 'cause such is what we do. @Guard Dog referenced a movie not too long ago on these boards, the best of times. am recalling robin williams and kurt russell were s'posed taft high grads. joan jett attended taft high.

oh, and as proof o' the all posts is star trek posts, tony plana, who were in the best of times, was a maquis member in a couple ds9 episodes.

HA! Good Fun!

Why has elegance found so little following? Elegance has the disadvantage that hard work is needed to achieve it and a good education to appreciate it. - Edsger Wybe Dijkstra

Back in nostalgia land... memories of the time at university. We were always late, always pulling one all-nighter after the other when (software) projects were due to be handed in. Somewhere in our beer fogged brains (because we could get beer on credit, but not food and we didn't have any money), we also got bombarded by the horribly distorted sounds from a little "ghetto blaster" playing old tapes at volumes it wasn't designed for. Mostly The Cult, Led Zeppelin and The B-52's. It was just awesome music to survive so many 24 hour work days on... 😇

 

Edit: and a second song

Speaking of which, here's a new list! Top albums from 1977, again with some Bowie:

(picture of "Heroes")

Low is the superior 1977 Bowie album. Fight me.

I somewhat like Low but I still am not finding in it what so many others are. "Warszawa" is a lovely track but the rest is sort of interesting but unmemorable to me. I feel "Heroes" not only has some absolutely killer and eternal tracks in it (title track of course, but also the likes of "Beauty and the Beast" and "Blackout"), but it also feels rawer and livelier when it is going for that rockier mood. Either way I think Eno outdoes both albums with Before and After Science, also somewhat in the style. 😄

A bit more from my favourite industrial band... made in Germany ;)

 

This is the case the song is based on: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fritzl_case

 

"The Fritzl case emerged in 2008, when a woman named Elisabeth Fritzl (born 6 April 1966) told police in the town of Amstetten, Austria, that she had been held captive for 24 years by her father, Josef Fritzl (born 9 April 1935). Fritzl had assaulted, sexually abused, and raped her numerous times during her imprisonment inside a concealed area in the basement of the family home.[1][2] The abuse by Elisabeth's father resulted in the birth of seven children:[3] three of them remained in captivity with their mother, one had died just days after birth at the hands of Josef Fritzl who disposed of his body in an incinerator,[4] and the other three were brought up by Fritzl and his wife, Rosemarie, having been reported as foundlings. "

Truth be told, I've never given Brian Eno a shot, but that sounds promising. I'll check the album out, thanks!

This is some of the earliest neurofunk I can remember, right at the point as it was evolving from Techstep.
