Yesterday I found some LPs in a skip outside my house.

Rolling Stones / Beggars Banquet: bit too crackly for comfortable listening

Solomon Burke / The Best Of: scratched to fuck, unfortunately

The Four Seasons / Who Loves You: alternately cheesy as hell and amazing

plus a metric fucktonne of Gladys Knight records. Weird.

Published by sam i at 3:27pm on Mon 1st September 2008.

Hehe! Vinyl in skips is genius - my first ever find was a working turntable with Mungo Jerry's In the Summertime already loaded and ready to play.

Published by arthurCRS at 3:30pm on Mon 1st September 2008.

If that was a scene in a British film ('coming of age' inevitably) it'd seem cringmakingly contrived. :-)

Meant to mention there is new Marnie Stern stuff around -- I downloaded a track off Pitchfork I think. Slightly more straight-ahead but still sounding like her stuff. Trying to get her to play here sometime -- currently at the 'don't hold your breath' stage though.

Up to "Speaking In Tongues" Talking Heads were fantastic but after that they just got a bit dull - "Little Creatures" in particular was a total let down for me.

Published by Dr Rhythm at 5:54pm on Mon 1st September 2008.

I think it's great actually, but the 5 before them were incredible so it's harder to judge it by its own merits. I was watching Stop Making Sense and it looks as though they were the best live band ever as well.

Published by Ben_DiS at 6:01pm on Mon 1st September 2008.

That's a great film but the CD version sounds a bit lumpen - have you got The Name Of This Band Is Talking Heads? I wish I had seen them on that second disc tour (or at all).

Published by Dr Rhythm at 6:07pm on Mon 1st September 2008.

Nope, but I've heard good things about it. Is that the one with a load of songs from 77 on it? If so I will definitely track it down.

Published by Ben_DiS at 6:09pm on Mon 1st September 2008.

"Hehe! Vinyl in skips is genius - my first ever find was a working turntable with Mungo Jerry's In the Summertime already loaded and ready to play." geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeenius!

I love Talking Heads- they're one of my top bands. I like the post-Speaking in Tongues stuff as well. In fact, I recently dug out Little Creatures and loved hearing it again. Its patchy but good. I like that whole slightly overcooked 80s style though, which is a lot to do with it. I held off getting True Stories for years because I was told it was shit, but I really like it. Naked is a good album.

To me the early Talking Heads (i.e. 77) sounds a lot like Little Creatures in the songwriting department, but there was the bit where they became funkadelic in between.

Published by mwhite (not active) at 6:18pm on Mon 1st September 2008.

I'm listening to the new Fujiya & Miyagi album, which is pretty different from the last stuff I really listened to of theirs (I think they were on Spymania with Casetteboy and that lot before?) Live drums, and a generally more live sound. Not sure if I'm so much in love with it to be honest, but it's good working music.

I'm loaded my mp3 player with a load of Marshall Crenshaw albums. I only discovered him by getting one of his LPs in the 20 for a fiver section of Andys records (I've discovered loads of bands that way, not all good). He's like a US Elvis Costello but even more power poppy. Anyone who fancies it should check out his first self-titled album and Field Day.

Cats In Paris - Courtcase 2000

This is everything I hoped it would be, all whimsical melodies soothed by strings, punctuated by stabs of synth and the clattering of kitchen implements. I think you should all hear it. The NME gave it a terrible review but it was one of those reviews where after reading it I knew it was EXACTLY what I wanted it to be. This album can make you dance, fall in love, fly to space and demolish your entire postal district in the space of one track. Yes.

Thomas Tantrum - Thomas Tantrum.

This is good stuff, like Life Without Buildings if they had the tunes of Blur. Except the first track, the first track is a bit rubbish. The rest is great fun. The lyrics are thoroughly forgettable but the tunes are consistently busy and inventive. It'll all rest on whether you like the singer's voice though. I like it a lot, you might not.

Published by Mattstep at 3:52pm on Tue 9th September 2008.

It's Curtis Mayfield's "There's No Place Like America"

Beautiful record. Not a particularly upbeat record. Tempo, that is. But includes the amazing, amazing, amazing "So In Love" and "Hard Times" amongst other crackers.

Curtis Mayfield was a truely talented man.

No flak round these parts Zig - lovely. This reminds me too: I had a very "Bill Drummond" experience / coincidence last night. Was reading his 17 book, and just got to the chapter where he writes about how he feels on hearing of Syd Barrett's death. Richard Wright even gets a mention too.

I would be listening to Pink Floyd if I had any to hand - instead I am listening to an album by the Mountain Firework Company - very nice it is too.

All my Floyd is on vinyl or (gulp) cassette. Happily, Marc Riley on listen-again on the radio is playing all 13 minutes of Shine On You.... My god this takes me back: soundtrack to my sixth form it was!

*nostalgiacises*

Published by Jude 1 (not active) at 3:09pm on Tue 16th September 2008.

soundtrack to my sixth form it was!

Now I find that intriguing and puzzling, Jude, given that you are somewhat younger than me (in fact, you are the same age as my sister give or take a couple of months). When I was in 6th form, Pink Floyd would have been considered old hat. No disrespect to them (I have to confess my recognition of any Floyd tunes would be limited to 'Another brick in the Wall' and 'Money') it's just that the only people of my age who were Floyd fans were a few kids who had older siblings.

An interesting muso-demographic conundrum, I think.

Published by Kuryakin at 4:22pm on Tue 16th September 2008.

Yes, they weren't contemporary. Me and my group of friends were just into them, for some reason. Possibly older siblings / boyfriends and stuff. I mainly listened to Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin throughout my sixth form days. I've *always* been cutting edge!

Published by Jude 1 (not active) at 4:28pm on Tue 16th September 2008.

Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin remained acceptable at my school despite the punk wars being fought at the time - of course Yes, Genesis, Supertramp, ELO and any other rubbish of the same ilk were considered to be abominations.

Published by Dr Rhythm at 4:46pm on Tue 16th September 2008.

Yes, Genesis, Supertramp, ELO and any other rubbish of the same ilk were considered to be abominations.

That sounds more like the prevailing outlook in my 6th form. If people didn't like punk, reggae and 2-tone, it was fairly acceptable for them to enjoy soul, northern soul or jazz-funk instead.

This is great, recorded I think by one of The Frames, with a bit of a tinge of Frames vocal style. Having seen them only once I was singing along with some of these on first listen to the CD, so the tunes must be memorable. I guess it's indie music, lots of interesting rhythms and shedloads of collaborators on other instruments throughout.

Let me tell you what it's all about

Walking round with your talent hanging out

I'm feeling ragged as a scrubber's tights

Must have had too much to paint

Last night's routine

Art school canteen

Come in late and go home earlier

One day a week or maybe less

So I lied about the funeral

I was really playing chess

But I was seen

By the coffee machine

Art school canteen

I'd cut my ear off to spite my face

But it's been done

No, maybe that's too weird

I'd better sketch it out on Kodatrace

And redesign my beard

Does getting into Zappa

Mean getting out of Zen

Sex has reared its ugly head at last

But it didn't look ugly then

Begin the Beguine

I've been listening to Weezer's blue album, and fantasising about doing Weezer at one of ABA's fabled tribute nights. If only I could play guitar properly.

I was watching TOTP2 the other day and Julian Lennon was on. I was just transfixed by his face, for similar reasons. Shit song, mind.

Mainly just the new Fucked Up album, it rules. Flute solos! Bongos! Synths! This band is amazing, if you haven't heard then you really should.

Apart from that, lots of Shitty Limits, lots of early Wu Tang, 'Township Funk' by Mujava, 'Another World' by Antony and the Johnsons, some Violent MInds, a bit of Rilo Kiley, and some Slayer.

Have you heard any of the Model 500 stuff? It's what Juan Atkins dd after Cybotron. They played at the Bang Face weekender and were one of the highlights.

Last Shadow Puppets album. It's very disappointing. Kind of a really crappy Love/Scott Walker hybrid without any of the charm or talent that those two acts had. And fuck me, who produced it? It sounds HORRIBLE. Really cheap!

Published by joshua at 11:29am on Tue 28th October 2008.

LSP album was produced by their drummer, who's also in Simian Mobile Disco. I was worried from the moment they said they wanted it to sound like Scott Walker. Gotta be pretty special production / arrangements to do that.

How's the Manchester Orchestra, Jamesttg? I'd forgotten all about them - saw them at Reading last year I think, really liked them.

Published by Jude 1 (not active) at 11:55am on Tue 28th October 2008.

I really like it, took a couple of listens but it's a good mix of folk and upbeat indie-pop. Kind of like The Shins meets Saves The Day if that makes any sense. I get the impression they'd be great live.

I'm loving the Fleet Foxes album too, beautiful 60's pop.
