16 Horsepower thanks to Stewf. Yee-Haw!
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. Punjabi Lounge http://www.fusion3.com/albums/ﬂubulcd07/
How you listen music at work? with you computer, with an ipod, with another medium? I wonder that, because I waited long long before to ﬁnally purchase last saturday these
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
> How you listen music at work? http://www.shoutcast.com hhp
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.
This is my current play list shuﬄed in itunes (heavily inﬂuenced by kexp.org) Blur Hot Hot Heat Interpol* Morcheeba New Pornographers Pete Yorn Polyphonic Spree Radiohead Sigur R
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).
slowdive… rad!!! ride? my bloody valentine?
Evanescence, REALLY loud.
Lonely beer Midnight kerning music: ––––––––—Jeﬀ Buckley
The Osmonds ‘Ultimate connection’ driving in Tuscany. First CD sounds like Guns and Roses.
Ha, I must admit, I’ve been listening to Evanescence too! I can’t say I loved their album, but there are some nice tracks there. :-)
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.
I can’t get enough Beth Orton lately. Don’t know what it is… her voice is like butter.
Jean, Black Market Clash is one of the best albums of all time. Perfect for driving.
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.)
Ever heard of Bob Dylan? You guys make me feel like Rip Van Winkle
The last Mimi Maura’s CD: “Raices de Pasión” The best bolero-ska-reggae mix!! http://www.mimimaura.com.ar/ Ramiro.
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.
Don’t you worry Gerald you are not alone, I’m listening to Dylan right now — John Wesley Harding.
»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
Millar?? Miller, obviously, as its Glen not Gavin
Peter, Did you know I spent some time with Janis Joplin? http://lanstontype.com/GiampaIntroduction.html
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 listen to Jazz and the best Jazz station around here is WBGO. Its out of Newark New Jersey, but can be heard at wbgo.org (online streaming) Its public radio no commercials. In terms of CDs I’m listening to The Bad Plus, Lizz Wright, Diana Krall, and Morellumbam 2 & Richi Sacamota
The Bad Plus is amazing, I like also theses days Brad Mehldau, Lisa Ekdahl, Roy Hardgrove last one. When not listening Jazz, The last Paul Weller “Fly on the Wall”, Black Eyed Peas “Elephunk”, Beyonc
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.
Steve, you like System? The lead singer is sort of a friend of mine. hhp

I have been listening to Messer fur Frau Muller and Messer Chups lately. Russian inde wierdness. Anyone else know them?
I’ve been listening to Anoushka Shankar Live at Carnegie Hall again and again and again. ‘Tis excellent.
> 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
I have Diana Krall in Paris its so cool. In Manhattan from 12 noon to 4pm Eastern Standard Time, is the Johnthan Swartz show on WNYC FM. wnyc.org he has an elictic program that is based on American Classics, he will go from Ella to Paul Simon
»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. David Roughs
