Words are hard to come by when describing this sound. It will be familiar to some, but difficult to share why its worth searching for. If you can find this cd, take it for a spin, it’s very rewarding.

try thanassis papakonstantinou’s “vrahnos profitis”… it’s greek (maybe it will also sound to some of you), but it’s still very okay, although it’s two-three years old… :)

Oh, those creatures look nice, J-F. ;-)
I usually listen to music with my computer, but I still listen to K7s with my walkman every day.

Btw, I’m like 4 years late on this, but I’ve just discovered Wilco’s “Summerteeth” other day. Really great album, a classic.

At the moment I really dig the new, somewhat harder Porcupine Tree Album.
And at least yesterday, when some poster and Freehands effing bugs drove me crazy, I listened to Steve Reich’s

you guys have got some great tastes in music. i love seeing things like fugazi, tortoise, wilco, sonic youth, the pixies, Cabaret Voltaire, the MC5. add (N) to X. some good stuff up in this mix.

if anyone is digging neue wave at the moment you should look into: figurine, the pulsars, zoot woman, fischerspooner, ladytron, console and adult.

Suddenly comeback to The Clash Black Market album after more than 15-20 years without listening it. A great pleasure, its great Rock band from the end of the 70’s early 80’s, so long.

Vincent,

Never saw Siouxsie's Banshees or Creatures as being gothies. In my opinion, they were mostly experimenting with different kind of sounds. For eighties gothies there were the Sisters, the Nephilim...

By the way, ¿is there something of the "new" Goth from this decade not some cloning from the eighties? Still searchin'...

Interpol, yes, of course they are Joy Division clones, but they are great live and have punch to their songs -Joy Division was conceptually great but Ian Curtis "sang" terribly, let´s admit it!!! (Not as terribly as the singer in New Order, though).

other than that I listen to kexp.org in Seattle the old Univ of WA station that King of Seattle Paul Allen bought. ‘Shake the Shack’ is the best. Then for a laugh I listen to me mate Red Hickey on www.wdvx.com they are just down the street from Dollywood and Red a scream. Good ol’ Rednecks.. they’re just like foreigners. to everyone.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs! As raw as Beth Orton or maybe Cat Power, but more… unexpected. Check it out.

(No, not Hot Hot Heat — who’s lyrics are as repetetetetive as their name. Anyway, what’s with band names nowadays? Soon they’re gonna sound like race horses.)

Basement Jaxx ‘Kish Kash’ featuring Siouxsie Sioux. the Brixton boys are back from 245a Coldharbour Lane… too bad I didn’t see Siouxie in the hall of our building but saw her and Felix on BBC Liquid news. .. Evanescence are Pop goth phonies compared to Siouxie.

Amy Winehouse.. ‘Frank’
50 cent….
Cheeky Girls…eurotrash.
Texas… weak scot pop from pop princess turned into a mum..
Alabama 3… more British southern funky soulful country from another Brixton band.
Kiss100.. kisstory
BBC London Live
8 Mile sountrack
Saturday Night Fever soundtrack.
the Osmonds again.. nice car music.

»When I saw these guys bowing a guitar like a
cello I had to look again.

Would that be like Jimmy Page was doing in 1969, or a different technique to that? (Cello implies a slightly different action, but I’m not sure how precise you’re being). My 11 year old son plays guitar and I was thinking of giving him a bow for christmas — he was blown away when he saw page using a bow on Dazed & confused on the new DVD, but if there are other people who have used other approaches with bows I’d be keen to find out about them.

As for today’s music:
Led Zeppelin (of course)
NOFX
Frank Sinatra
Naz Nomad & the Nightmares
Steel Pulse
Glen Millar
Buzzcocks
System of a Down
Pink Floyd

hmm. It seems typophiles have a generally good
taste in music. I dig the local scene. There is
nothing like picking up a wicked homegrown album.

Can anyone tell me what Tortoise is like? I am meaning
to purchase one of their albums.

www.pitchforkmedia.com is a wonderful place for
reviews.

Excellent suggestion, JFP. I’ve been using iChatStatus for a
long time and it’s an excellent way to catch a bit of what is
going into my buddies’ ears all day. I suggest more Typophiles
get on iChat or AIM and install that sucker.

Here is an old list of Typophile AIM names. I’ve reactivated
the thread. Add yours to it.

> Bowing a guitar like a cello.

Yeah, the end of the guitar was on the floor while he sat in a chair and drew the bow across the middle of the neck. Like a cello. Droning ensues, true to their signature sound. Not sure how Jimmy Page did it. Who’s Jimmy Page? (j/k)

Allow me to imagine Jimmy Page, err I mean, describe how he held his guitar. Ahem. I mean to say that Jimmy would leave his guitar strapped on, slung low on his hips, and would bow the guitar from that position.

(If only I’d been born 20 years earlier!)

I play guitar, and sometimes I use a bow too. Now, I don’t like playing with the guitar as low as Page used to… I use a viola bow on about the 12th fret and mute the nut to get rid of those unwanted harmonics.

That said, I’ve been listening to:

The Chicago Underground (Quartet | Trio | Duo)
Isotope 217
Diana Krall
Chet Baker (mostly ‘Chet Baker Sings’)
Miles Davis (‘Kind of Blue’, ‘Sketches of Spain’)
Belle & Sebastian (The first 3 albums)
Tom Jobim & Elis Regina

»Steve, you like System? The lead singer is sort of a friend of mine.

That’s cool Hrant — I’ve reached the point where I’m discovering new music through my kids and the general Kerrang-sound background noise that lives in my house. System are one of the bands that really stood out and made me stop and listen.

»Who’s Jimmy Page? (j/k)
Does ‘(j/k)’ stand for ‘joke’?

»I play guitar, and sometimes I use a bow too. Now, I don’t like playing with the guitar as low as Page used to… I use a viola bow on about the 12th fret and mute the nut to get rid of those unwanted harmonics.

Thanks for the tips Adriano. How long do bows last when you’re using them on a guitar? And is there a reason for choosing one type of bow over another, or is it just a matter of taste?

Hey.
I’m a sucker for “What Are You Listening To” threads.

So,

Sonic Youth — Murray Street
- Disconnection Notice, best song ever?

Quasi — Hot $hit (not really a dollar sign…)
- Newest (and angriest) from Sam and Janet, blues-touched and great.

William Parker / Billy Bang / Hamid Drake — Scrapbook
- Jazz Lives! Highly recommended, as is everything on the Matthew Shipp curated Blues Series imprint, or anything Parker and Drake play on.

Outkast — Love Below
-The Andre 3000 album of the 2 album set. If you’ve worn out the P-Funk collection…

Elliott Smith
- R.I.P.

Gories / Blacktop / Dirtbombs
- Mick Collins is the real deal. Like the White Stripes? Cuz they like Mick (in all of his many bands).


Damn. Now I wanna start checking out some of the other suggs made. Working at a library has it’s downsides.
