RE: What are you listening to?
For some reason, even in partially-pozzed churches, the hymns survive unmolested. There's little better than the last verse at a Westminster service.





Probably been posted before, but an impromptu piece of eternity in a European train station.





My favorite Ralph Stanley song.





Those who have strayed were sought by The Master / He who once gave His life for the sheep
Out on the mountain still He is searching / Bringing them in forever to keep

While I don't think it's incredible, I think it's pretty good. Especially for a bunch of 50 year olds who debuted almost 30 years ago. I think it's a feat in and of itself people don't downright hate it. By this time in a lot of artist's careers they are completely phoning it in. The last APC album that came out last year was pretty weak.

I've had this on repeat:





EDIT: I think the biggest drawback to this album is a lot of songs just meander. Whereas previous Tool songs would build up to this dope crescendo pretty much every song on FI just peters out/ends. Someone on youtube described it as "having sex without orgasming" (which can still be good ime). Even still I wouldn't rate it lower than a 7/10.

What is it about Toni Childs?

Sounds like she is being strangled when she sings, and yet something about her voice is very compelling.


Not too bad to look at either.

Yeah, her voice is annoying as fuck, but it just works. Helps if you're drunk!

It's very affected, but it was just around the time when everyone was starting to affect their voice, well, women only, men don't do that shit.

I fucking hate it. But well spotted. I give Toni Childs a pass.


This is a good one from her:






It helps to be in a state of heightened (or lowered) awareness.

I wake up sometimes in a fug, in a sweat, PTSD stuff. Flashback to this song.

Where's the ocean?

Fucked if I know. Tears streaming down my face. With the 'fear'. Who cares.


Anyway, just checked in to post this. I like this song:






Music is the best.

RE: What are you listening to?
The reason I remember Toni Childs is because she was what I listened to when I went back home after seeing Bobo in White Wooden Houses.

She played a gig where my ex played. Club called Xenon in the West End of London. Run by a fat black faggot. Fucking loved that guy. He had a soft spot for me too. Gave everyone a lift home in my African Taxi. Bob Marley's manager et al. Yeah, right, Rigsby...

Here is Bobo:





She's done loads of stuff. She's a fucking superstar. She played to me and one other drunk that night, after playing the club where my 'friends' were. Stoke Newington. Dead end.

Ian, the fat black faggot lived in Finsbury Park. I would live there later with my leggy 6' Austrian blonde. But for now, it was the place where I met Mary, who sang on Chaka Khan records. Michael Jackson. Donna Summer. Prince.

I was sad when Ian died. Aids.

I got invited to all kinds of parties. I was the only white boy in the room. An ambassador for my cause. I noted white racism, but I also noted black racism. They were all pretty reasonable people. It was experiences like this that always stopped me from becoming a proper racist.

Bit more Bobo:






Her Russian boyfriend looked a hard bastard. He was just glad someone came to the gig. Bobo sung on a Rammstein song. Her claim to fame.

Look at the sad fuckers:






I'd twat them pretty hard if they ever tried pulling that shit on me, German fuckers. But that's just me I guess.

There's no telling for culture. I want no part in it. But beautiful brunette East German angels? I've got time for.

People get taken advantage of. But no fucker takes advantage of me. I hate everyone, except those I choose to love and maybe white list in to my small little world.

I miss Mary, my black girlfriend who sung for MJ and Prince and Donna Summer and Chaka Khan. We used to hang out with Chaka Khan's sister too - Taka Boom.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taka_Boom


It was a heady mixture of East German post-wall whiteness, and American soul hip hop blackness. Good times.

Hung out with the guy that played the guitar in Snap as well. He was a black guy, no chip on his shoulder. Got fucked by a very beautiful English Rose on a water bed in a rubber dress.

He got the power!






I'm the lyrical Jessie James...

Getting kind of heavy...


Fuck yeah!

RE: What are you listening to?
When it comes to female singers who got their start in the late '80s, I think my favorite is either Basia or Corrine Drewery of Swing Out Sister.

To my ears, rock became petrified by 1986 and pop became robot-like. So I started to lean more towards jazz-inflected sophisti-pop. It kind of picked up where Dionne and Astrud left off in the '60s.

Boiler Room is normally pretentious but there's something different about this show, the DJ spinning all sorts of tunes and the crowd is going wild the whole time. One of the best sets I've ever seen posted on the internet.

Basia hands down. Timeless jazzy singer.






What about Anita Baker? She was the queen of the 80's for me. Timeless talent as well.

RE: What are you listening to?
Daniel Johnston died today.

I remember being 18 or 19, at the height of my musical snobbery when I would only listen to jazz and contemporary classical music, and my now brother in law renting a cassette of a documentary about him. Badly recorded and incredibly simple, his songs were nonetheless beautiful. I owe it to him rescuing me from that stupidity and making me enjoy music as such again (and saving me from music school in the process).

I hope he is with God, finally in peace.




Don't call it a grave, it's the future you chose.

This band had 1-hit wonder written all over them when that first single came out back in '86. I figured they'd be done by the end of the 80s and yet they've gone on to put out 11 albums so far.

I felt the same way. You have to tread carefully though when engaging DOBA on 80's music.

Been on a Death / Control Denied kick for the last couple of days. The documentary "Death By Metal" reminded me of what a genius Chuck Schuldiner was.

Tedeschi Trucks Band's "I Want More" into "Soul Sacrifice" - Around 2:45 mark, you could see a broken string on Derek Trucks' guitar. He changed the string on stage while the band continued playing and waited. Then Derek went on a blistering solo performance.
