My first Laibach concert. Thanks to a series of most un/lucky happenings (starting with the ceiling of the big concert hall coming down) I ended up directly in front of the smallish replacement stage and had the opportunity to stare at Milan's boots for the whole concert.
I was very impressed (by the concert, not the boots).

Would you be able to tell the boots again if I would show you a list in a shoe shop departments' computer ?


Yesterday I bought myself the newest album of Status Quo : "In search of the fourth chord". I begin to like them, and I think I'll definitively buy more of them in the future.

There are 3 variants of the album out there I know of :

- EU version
- UK version
- French version

The first one has a bonus track, which the second one lacks, but instead it has a bonus track the EU version lacks, and the French version doesn't have neither of them.

Two things I dug up for my kids that I ended up listening to:

Billy Idol - Greatest Hits … had forgotten how much cool stuff he had back then.

John Lennon - Working Class Hero - older son wanted the title song, there is some cool stuff and some crap.

Laibach's great, I was just doing a retrospective the other day listening to JCS & Opus Dei. Really want to try out Let it Be, have never gotten around to it. Prolly end up just getting the mp3 version from Amazon

Listening to Pandora radio's "Tiger Doom" station, kinda disappointed in their selection tho as i'm getting like 5 bands recirculated over and over, and two of them (paradise lost & katatonia) have long since quit their doom schtick like several albums ago

Thomas Tallis - Spem in Alium. Don't remember what I was doing before, somehow I ended up on that page. Listened all the way through. Then a couple times more.

You do know that you asked a person suffering from a mild form* of boot fetishism, right? So the answer is, of course, 'yes'.

Cool stuff, Arhu. They've got some talented sopranos in there—remarkable clarity for such a high register.

It seems to me that there's only one response:
barbershop (sorta)
Or
more talent and only slightly less humor
More fun

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

Lamenting the loss of Boston channel WFNX's 'Jazz Brunch' radio show, this morning I pulled out the double CD "Circle in the Round" by Miles Davis … nice collection of stuff from '55 - '70.

"My Wallpaper Looks Like Paint" by None More Black

There was an awesome Philly hardcore band named Kid Dynamite some years ago. They broke up so the singer could focus on moviemaking or something. I guess he got the itch for music again as he formed this band, and boy do they kick ass. Really catchy with his trademark scratchy vocals.

Yeah, but watching MTV back then was like listening to the radio … with video!

"Through the Fire and the Flames" by DragonForce.

Why am I listening to this? It's so cheesy and ridiculous.

Yeah!

I was posting about Utopia Triumphans, which contains Spem in Alium too, just a month ago. Great selection of great compositions greatly performed .
(here he goes again) Josquin Desprez - Qui Habitat


Anyway, Gridlock - Trace (2001) & Formless (2003)

Mix of warm ambient soundscapes and cold industrial, sorta Autechre-ish, drumbeatin΄. Result is very evocative and rather, ugh, epic.

A little "spread the word" today for a wonderful person…Jenn was the vocalist for Tearwave and ended up starting her own project after Tearwave had a meltdown. While her new direction is a long ways away from the gazer/dream roots of Tearwave (I'd call it goth metal, Lacuna Coil has been referenced more than once), I still like her vocal work. I figure the new sound might appeal to some of you around here moreso than my usual fare. Enjoy.
